  5. Hi folks, When I saw that the French Fancy GB was coming up I knew exactly which kit I was going to build. It had been in my stash a while and as usual when a GB comes along with the right subject - then it's a done deal as to kit choice. My kit of choice is the RS Models Bloch MB-152 and from what I've seen of it so far it appears to be a very nice little kit. There's plenty of detail, nicely moulded parts and even includes a couple of resin parts - in particular a resin engine which will really add to the detail. So here's the obligatory box art shot: Some nice schemes on offer - obviously the Vichy French red and yellow is particularly eye catching but as I've never built a French aircraft to date (and the camouflage is eye catching in it's own right) and then I'd have to mask those red and yellow lines to paint, I've opted to go with this scheme: There's only 2 sprues in the kit - not a heavy part count but as I mentioned earlier the parts are nicely detailed and moulded and there's the addition of the resin parts too: Lastly, there's just the canopy which again appears to be nicely moulded and nice and clear as well as the decals which again - can't complain just looking at them but we'll see later on in the build how they perform: Hopefully, I'll be able to make a start on her very soon - before then I need to get my build finished for the Unarmed GB as well as push on with my build for the Bf 109 STGB - so plenty to be getting on with. Again there's already some fantastic builds going on for this GB - I've got my eye on @fatfingers Tamiya 1/35 Somua S35 which is one of my favourites in the armour world so looking forward to seeing that completed and then no doubt being the impetus for me to finally get it in my stash too So until then - 'Bonne chance mes amis et Au revoir' Kris
  6. In the years before the outbreak of World War II, a number of countries became intrigued by the idea of developing a very light fighter aircraft, with these proposals often being derived from the design of racing aircraft. One of those examples that actually saw service and combat was the Caudron C.714 . Although light and fast, its wooden construction did not permit a more powerful engine to be fitted. The original Renault 12R-03 engine seriously limited its climb rate and maneuverability with the result that the Caudron was initially withdrawn from active service in February 1940. The invasion of France in May 1940 changed plans again, 35 Caudrons were delivered to the Polish Warsaw Squadron manned by escaped Polish pilots, Groupe de Chasse polonais I/145. Just a week later, the French War ministry ordered the C.714 to be withdrawn (again) but since the French authorities had no other aircraft to offer, the Polish pilots ignored the order and continued to fly the Caudrons. Despite flying a fighter hopelessly outdated compared to the Messerschmitt Bf 109E, the Polish pilots scored 12 confirmed and three unconfirmed victories in three battles between 8 June and 11 June, losing nine in the air and nine more on the ground. --- RS's c.714 kit. Quite a simple affair, just the one sprue really. The roundels do look a bit suspect, may have to scrounge up an alternative somewhere that looks better. At least I get to break open the Hataka set, so that's a good thing

  8. Hello all, finished over the weekend these builds stemmed from a need to have a break from sanding down the hectares of filler on the Il-38N I'm making over in the WIP area. These two little mites were a pleasure to build, the only stress coming from trying to decide which markings to apply as both kits come with a choice of four. For the RS Models Yak-11 Moose I chose the Egyptian markings, mainly because there was a bit of yellow involved and I like the look of the protuberance on the front canopy. (don't know what it is). The aircraft depicted was based at Gebal al Basur in 1964. For the Special Hobby Yak-23 Flora I chose the Bulgarian Army Air Force version from the 1950's. They were straight from their respective boxes and were great little kits with lots of detail, I recommend them both. So without further ado here they are. Thanks for looking Pete

  13. My other build is a tourist airplane again. This time it's my favourite Zlin XII (my top one prewar Czechoslovak civil design), but in British service. I have already built one a long time ago, when I was just 15. I don't know of any photo of this particular plane (G-AFMW), so it's gonna be quite a carefree build. The marking is overall aluminium dope so that's another plus point! I started with the cockpit and finished with putting fuselage halves together. Seats were rather tricky - they are much wider than they should be and they stretch the fuselage halves by 1 mm on each side. Enjoy the photos Cheers, Andrew

  18. Here's a project I would like to do, see how we get on with the 3 other builds I have on here! 8 Do22 Seaplanes from the Yugoslav Airforce were flown to Aboukir, Egypt in April 1941. The RAF intended to intern the crews and use the Dorniers themselves but the crews made it clear they wished to fight on. Two orders from the government in exile were ignored and eventually attached to 201 Group, being evaluated as suitable for Reconnaissance and anti-submarine patrols. A severe lack of spares, only one aircraft was filled with as much as they could bring, and political changes to the Yugoslav government eventually led to the unit being disbanded in April 1942. 5 remaining aircraft were thought to have been scrapped. Although Pricey, I couldn't resist buying one of these really unusual aircraft, which was never taken up by the German Airforce at the time. Only 29 were built including the prototype. At first glance i thought it was a bi-plane but it is of course a high-wing monoplane. The kit looks cleanly moulded with a good interior and even a pair of photo-etch paddles! I also bought the KAGERO Monograph book which just arrived today, initially when I found it was expensive but found a seller on the 'Bay with a couple of new ones for £20 inc. P&P, offered £18 and he accepted! looks an interesting read, and I may jiggle around with the decals to do a different machine to the one in the box, we'll see. Aligning the wing and float struts should be interesting! Davey.
  19. I recently bought this kit as it was a subject I had not seen before. The kit itself is actually for the drawing board version - KI87-II which was designed to prevent the turbo supercharger overheating issues present in the prototype KI87. It was never built due to the end of the war. My own rule of modelling is to try to build aircraft that actually existed so luckily, the kit comes with the fuselage and parts for the KI87 prototype which was built before the war ended. I will built that, rather than the KI87-II. Some mocked-up KI87-II colour schemes which I won't be building. Nice clear instructions and a mask that came with the kit Some sprues in the bag. You can see the 4 fuselage halves. The plastic is nicely moulded with little flash and it has a good amount of detail. Some decals I will be partially using.. I'll be building the prototype with the turbo super charger fitted in the fuselage side. What you can't see in the photos is how big this beast is. It is P47 sized!
