  1. Hi Everyone, thought I`d share some pic`s of my latest effort with you My attempt at Dora Wings 1/48 P-43 Lancer Kit Built from their `In China Skies` boxing and in Republic of China markings ( no surprise ) Finished to represent an aircraft of 21st FS/4th FG, En-shih, late 1943. Mostly from the box contents: replaced the engine push rods with individual bits of wire as I managed to wreck the kit ones cutting them off the sprue. Additions were; ignition harness, canopy rails and brake pipes from bits of wire Replaced the gun
  2. Howdy all, Thought you wouldn`t mind seeing some photo`s of the latest addition to my Republic of China Air Force collection My attempt at Special Hobby`s reissue of Classic Airframes 1/48 CR.32 kit Finished to represent an aircraft flown by Lt Chen, Tse-liu...... ......during the Canton and Kwangsi Provinces confrontation and later against the Japanese but with the white band removed Built pretty much from the box contents with just a few bits of photo etch which pinged away never to be seen again, replaced with bits of wire and such.
  3. Way back in 2018 I started this kit for the Trainers GB, but ground to a halt before completing the cockpit. With lockdown I decided to work through some of my half-started models, though barely a sixteenth-started might be more accurate. I acquired this kit for a fiver from the chap that attends our monthly (in the old days) IPMS meetings. I’d never heard of the plane or the kit maker, you can find the aircraft easily enough on the net but I do recommend care if you Google “Lo Models Taiwan”! I believe the AT-3 was Taiwan’s first jet, desi
  4. Howdy everyone, now the silly season and the first Shifts of the year are out of the way I managed to finish my latest effort: Freedom Models 1/48 scale Curtiss Hawk III kit Finished in the markings of 25 Sqn, RoCAF, based at Yangchow Airfield, China 1937 and flown by Pilot Mu Fei Chang. The script on the fwd fuselage ( which also appears under the wings ) reads Ningpo Special according to what I found on the web. As usual mostly from the kit contents, I did replace some of the etched stuff with bits of wire but managed to use the interpl
  5. Hi all, Latest one of the production line is my 3rd Hasegawa 1/48 F-104 Starfighter (an Eduard boxing this time) finished in the markings of the Republic Of China Air Force (ROCAF) as she would have appeared in the early 1980's. Painted with a mix of Gunze and Xtracrylix paints and finished with Bestfong decals ( excellent by the way) I hope you like her. For those of you not put off by the pictures abov
  6. Hi Everyone, Just finished the third of my haul from Telford last November, so I thought I`d trouble you with some photo`s Czech Models 1/48 scale Curtiss A-12 Shrike kit Finished to represent an aircraft of No 26 Bomber Squadron, No 9 AG, Chinese Air Force, 1937-38 Which was an option in the kit Built mostly from the box with the exception of the fragile resin frames and flying control actuators which were broken into little bits in the bag and.... replaced with bits of wire, tube and plastic strip. Took three attempts at
  7. I saw this scheme on a 1/48 build on another forum and was really taken with it. This is the 1/72 Hasegawa kit, a really straightforward and enjoyable kit.
  8. Hi Everyone, Just finished last weekend, which I was building alongside my Messerscmhitt `108, but which took a bit longer for some reason Italeri`s reissue of Esci`s 1/48 Henschell 123 kit Finished to represent an aircraft of 15th Chungtui, Chinese Air Force, Nankin Region around 1938 Built mostly from the box contents... with the decals from Kora decals DEC4821 set According to the instructions the aircraft were delivered in all over grey and the camo` applied by hand locally Hope you enjoy, Thanks for looking Cheers Russ
  9. Hi, I found these two recently posted videos of some help in researching F-104As in Taiwanese service, so maybe it's worth posting these here. There's not much out there on Taiwanese equipment so these videos were a revelation to me. It's from 1981 and images include pre flight checks on an F-104G and F-104As taxiing away. In Mandarin by the way. Part 1 Part 2 (F-104A at 7.42) Jay
  10. Hi everyone, Just finished my other `Chinese` P-40 that I was building along side my recently posted AVG Hawk 81 Hasegawas 1/48 P-40N completed to represent; `Sam` of the Chinese American Composite Wings 5th FG Flown by Col John A Dunning, Chihkiang, China 1944 Built pretty much out of the box, with just some seat belts, brake pipes and aerial wires added. Decals were from an old Cutting Edge set. Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking Cheers Russ
  11. Hi Everyone, Here`s my attempt at making an AVG Hawk from every ones favourite P-40 kit Finished to represent a Hawk H-81 of the 2nd Pursuit Squadron `The Panda Bears`, AVG, flown by Franklin Schwartz, Burma `42 I made a few improvements to the kit, the biggest being: replacing the cockpit with a resin one I had lying around from an Eduard P-40 Still used the kit instrument panel though, so it`s still not accurate but looks better IMHO and scratch built a replacement seat. Other tweaks include; reduced the rudder chord, lengthened the tail wheel
  12. After seeing Vincent's thread about his spotting tour of Taiwan air bases, my failing memory told me that I did have a few pictures on the subject, taken not so long ago around the Island State, on different occasions. Quite a few pictures in fact, and fewer worth to be exposed here when you think of my ability at using a camera... But you never know, so here we go. Gangshan An air base on the southwest of the island, between Tainan in the north, and the harbour-city of Kaoshiung. It's the home of the air force academy, T-34 and AT-3 are flying all day long. There's also the air force mu
  13. Once a year I try to spot far far away. After two trips in Japan it was time to find another target. This year I went to Taiwan. I paid visits to Hsinchu (Mirage 2000), Chiayi (F-16), Tainan (F-CK-1), Taichung/CCK (F-CK-1), Gangshan (AT-3 & T-34C), Taitung (F-5), Hualien (F-16 & RF-5) & Taipei/Songshan (transport a/c) airbases. And it was nice, really nice. The RoCAF fighter bases being active 7/7. As when the weather or light conditions are not of my convenience I drop my film cameras (with slides films!) and move to pics for dummies, I mean digital picture. Hsinchu
  14. Hi all, Just thought I`d show some pic`s of my just completed attempt at making a Chinese Nationalist Air Force Hawk II from the old Lindberg Goshawk kit. Curtiss Hawk II No 2804, flown by Lt Art Chin, 28th PS/5th PG, August 1937. Had to do a few modifications to the base kit, including: eliminating triangular cut out from the rudder, manufacture tail skid and..... fit semi built in slipper tank underneath to replace the teardrop aux` tank. Detail improvements include: ignition wires, exhaust stubs and replacement pilot figure to hide the lack of cockpit detail. Decals from the s
  15. Hi Everyone, Thought I`d show some pic`s of my most recent completion Academys 1/48 scale P-38 Lightning, done as the Recce option and completed as: and aircraft of 12th Reconnaissance Squadron, Sino-American Wing, Chinese Nationalist Air Force, 1944-45 Built mostly OOB with just brake pipes and seat belts added, with decals from a Blue Rider sheet Was going to complete it in Olive Drab and Neutral Grey scheme but after Googling and looking through books found..... that every reference and profile stated Dark Green and Light Grey as the colours used so presume they were deli
  16. Hi Everyone, just managed to finish and photograph my latest build; Eduards weekend edition I-16 Which I finished in the kit markings to represent an aircraft of: Sinkiang Aviation Unit, Dihua airfield, China, 1941-42 Only additions to what came in the box was some seat belts and the undercarriage retraction cables Don`t know a lot about these so probably a few boo-boos but hopefully nothingserious. Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking. Cheers Russ
  17. Hi everyone, Can someone please help me. I recently started working on the 1/48 Kinetic ROCAF Mirage 2000-5Di. I bought the Wolfpack Mirage 2000D resin cockpit for it but from the limited info I was able to gather it seems that the two seaters in service with Taiwan are purely Mirage 2000-5 trainers. I am therefor not sure if the Mirage 2000D cockpit is correct for this kit. My question relates spesifically to the front and rear instrument panels. I cannot find pictures of the Mirage 2000-5Di cockpit anywhere on the web. Does anybody know what panel these aircraft uses? I suspect the front pa
