  1. Hey everyone In conjunction with my Gladiator build and hot on the heals of my 1/48 Eduard Spitfire (with a bit of resin thrown in) I will make a start on this... I have wanted to build a Phantom since I came back to modelling 10 years ago. Its aggressive lines are awesome and painted as an RAF bird I think they look particularly cool. I have a little AM in the way of quick boost Martin Baker Mk.7's and some resin rear view mirrors for the canopy's. I'll make a start on her a little later on today. Cheers Iain
  2. 2011 Display Hawk 1:72 Hi everyone! I'll admit, this build has taken a little while. Having commenced at the start of September, I had hoped to have time to complete it when I got some downtime in-between University work... oh how wrong I was! This Hawk is modeled on the 2011 display Hawk, flown by Flt Lt Juliette Fleming, that I was supposed to have seen displaying at the Cosford airshow that year. Unfortunately, the heavens opened and I believe we left the site early, with most of the displays curtailed and the fields rapidly changing from a solid to
  3. My first build in 28 years and first experience with an airbrush Had a number of problems along the way with parts not fitting correctly, sink marks or damaged due to the kit being so old (eg warped body) I did however make a few mods to make the kit more realistic and enjoyable. Off to build a couple of planes from my stash and introduce myself to "weathering" before tackling my next rally car ... a Jimmy McRae Opel Manta 400 with AC Delco decals
  4. Hawk T.1 (04970) 1:72 Revell When the RAF began the search for a new fast jet trainer to replace the Folland Gnat, it was originally intended that the role would be fulfilled by the SEPECAT Jaguar. However, the advanced capabilities demanded of the new Anglo-French aircraft meant that it became too complex for use as a trainer As a result, Hawker Siddley Aviation began work on a private venture known as the P.1182. The design team produced a relatively simple, subsonic aircraft with a number of clever features. The fuselage is designed around a large, tandem cockpit,
  5. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is my 1/72 Revell SdKfz 251, converted to a Battlefield Ambulance. The kit I used as a basis comes with flame throwers (Revell Nr. 03197) - it's cheap and widely available. I picked several of these boxing from a second-hand-sale some time ago. All weaponry was discarded, and the interior was adapted according to original photographs: I added two stretchers (from the venerable Escí 251 kit), the blankets were made from tin foil. Stowage items are from Black Dog. The tarpaulin rails were made from wire.
  6. It was quite a long time since I didn't posted new model but here I finally managed to get finished HAF Mirage 2000 with a very special paint job on the tail. Awesome design on the tail (both sides) belongs to @omererkmen who is also doing fantastic paint job mainly on Turkish Air Force's and some other countries' aircrafts. This design for HAF is not applied irl but at least applied in scale model now! This was very unique one for me, wanted to share with you. There are some mistakes on the build itself obviously but I am trying to get better with each one. This was my 9th finished build I
  7. Evening All, Was debating whether or not to enter this GB as wasn't convinced I'd complete in time, I'm a leisurely modeller, especially at the beginning when its all the fiddly bits I'm not that good at! However, with a deadline into December, I ought to be OK. I got a Revell GR.1 for Christmas a couple of years ago just after they'd gone out of service so this GB was rather timely. I'm doing this pretty much OOB, although undecided on markings at this point. Might stick to the 9 sqn in the kit or go after market for something else. Also unsure about the weapons, b
  8. Well I thought I'd best join now the #BoB80 build is drawing to a close. I over extended a bit on that with lockdown, working from home so no commute etc, a couple of builds not finished and I have 2 helicopter builds still to get done on the next KUTA build. So lesson learned, I will do 2 builds, starting with this, pretty much OOB with crew from elsewhere. I am looking at what subject, I may go out and get some aftermarket decals - I have some already, plus I could also kill 2 birds with 1 stone modelling a 617 Sqn airframe.... I did build a 13 Sqn GR1A airframe in w
  9. Another B17 started a fair few weeks ago. Just got round to posting something here. On the face of it this kit was rather nice looking so i thought i'd buy TWO and have a go at both to feed my USAAF hunger!. Having done a Liberator earlier on in the year and a few Tamiya 1:48 USAAF offerings this would be my next essay. I'm planning on doing it OOB. Little Miss Mischief is the one i will do. I have another same kit in the stash so maybe something exotic.. Deffo NOT Memphis Belle.. again. I've been watching the Sky Documentary "Cold Blue" which is pretty amazing to get so
  10. Wasn’t planning on entering this GB, but saw the review of the 1/48 Airfix release of the Folland Gnat which contains marking option of an aircraft in the colours of the Yellowjacks. Formed in 1963, the Yellowjacks were an RAF aerobatic display team by a group of flying instructors from No.4 Flying Training School. Leading to what we snow know as the Red Arrows in 1965. I thought the gloss yellow scheme with black tail would look good on a hawk. So here I am. Kit was ordered from Jadlam on Saturday. Something to look forward to as we go back into lockdown.

    F-4F to F-4E?

    I was wondering if its possible to 'reverse-engineer' Revell's F-4F into a 'Nam era F-4E and what would be needed to pull that off. I'm not an expert on the finer differences between Phantom versions, hence this question. I know that Hasegawa has a good F-4E, but its about 3 1/2 times more expensive and I can't find the version that I want either. The crazy Hase prices plus needing aftermarket decals/parts on top of that (somewhere around €50) is making me consider the Revell option. Any Britmodellers think it's a viable one? TIA
  12. Harrier GR.1 50 Years (05690) 1:32 Revell The Harrier began life as a Hawker Siddeley product, and was the first aircraft capable of Short/Vertical Take-Off and Landing (S/VTOL) to reach service, and until its eventual replacement the F-35 Lightning II began flying it was pretty much the only aircraft that was actually capable of carrying out the task it was designed for, although the Harrier was very good at its job unlike other pretenders. We’re excluding rotary wing aircraft just in case the pedant in you was awakening. The GR.1 was the first to reach service
  13. Hi all, I will chip in with the Revell F-101B Voodoo the aircraft which epitomises to me the idea i of an interceptor. As I already build the Matchbox version, it will be interesting to compare bith of these kits. Btw. the Matchbox Voodoo is in Canadian colours, but the kit didn't come with any weapons. Is it feasible to equip this aircraft with the AIR- 2 Genie? I plan to use the leftover decaks of the Happy Hooligans on the Revell kit. It may, or may no recieve also AM wheels, bang seats and a pitot probe.
  14. Hi I started this one during the Shark Mouth GB last year, but got to the part of trying to sort out the intakes an it ended up back in the box. In fact, until last weekend for various reasons I hadn't done any modelling since then. I am determined to get my mojo back and to get this one finished this time. Initial pictures from last time are here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235057782-revell-148-tornado-gr-4-zg750-pinky/ Hopefully I'll have some progress to show in the next day or two. This one is intended to be ZG750 in the desert pink scheme.
  15. Right. Here we go then. First WIP for Quack. I thought I'd have a go at a WIP thread, never having done one before. The kit is this one....the Revell / Hasegawa 1/48 Spey Phantom FGR2. I fell in love with these brutes growing up near Leuchars, and loved to watch and listen as they thundered out on training or QRA sorties. OK in fairness they were largely FG1s from 892 Sqh FAA, or 43 / 111 Squadrons when the airframes were gifted to the RAF, buy I can't find a 1/48 FG1 so this'll have to do for now. With any luck ZM will get around to issuing Spey Phantoms in 1/48 sca
  16. I have the Haunebu II Model Kits from Squadron Models and from Revell sitting on my shelf for a while. To make this clear: This is pure Fun-Fiction for me. I am lighyears away from any Nazi-Ideas or any questionable messages that people (especially here in germany) have associated with the Haunebu after the Revell Kit came out. Both Kits offer the option to open the Bridge-Section with the "Repulsor Drive"-Unit in the middle. Both drives are pretty basic. The Squadron version is a bit bigger but just a hollow tube. Therefore my Plan is to replicate the repulsor drives in clear resi
  17. As seen at the International Air Tattoo, Greenham Common 1986. Build thread HERE for those interested in the Flightpath detailing set. Revell 1/32 kit with Flightpath detail set, Paragon ejection seats, AMS resin nose, Hobbydecal probes and a variety of deliberately obtuse decal sets! I was really disappointed with the decals, really put me off finishing the model. You can't really make it out from the photos, but most of the stencils and insignia went on rubbish. A real labour of love like most Revell big-scale aircraft, phinally phinished with phlaws!!
  18. Thanks to Hannants "Future Releases" here's a first - and incomplete ! - glimpse into the Revell 2021 programme. Source: https://www.hannants.co.uk/futurereleases/ Don't forget the 1/48th SR-71 project, see thread: link UPDATE 13/11/2020 UPDATE 14/11/2020 V.P.
  19. Hi All, Here's another completed build from the lockdown - the Revell 1/32 F/A-18E Super Hornet built (almost) out of the box for the In The Navy Groupbuild. Only the seat and GBU-38 bombs were aftermarket items, I added the HARMs from the Academy kit spares. Everything else, including the decals, came from Revell's monster kit. The word on the street about this kit was overwhelmingly negative apart from a very nice in-prog build by @infofrog and a very fair RFI summary by @Habu12. Most of the bad news was coming from another site (Big'N'Tall A
  20. Hello there! After some time I would like to present you my next German project - little Junkers family (meant in 1/144 scale). I discovered the Junkers G.38 in an internet sale and I needed it immediately. I haven't met this machine before and it was somenthing new to me. Also I always wanted to try corrugated iron aircraft and this is the best option for me so far. Before I started the build of G.38 I also bought the Ju-52 (Eduard kit) in the same scale and the new idea was to do a dualbuild of these two corrugated iron designs. But at first, let's have some fun with
  21. Hi, I've always been impressed by the low level combat ops with Tornados. However only a decade old by the time the Gulf war aka Desert Storm broke lose, It was the first conflict which I (as probably my parents let me to) followed with great interest. Shortly after through some literature I got to see these great looking Desert Pink sprayed Tornados and I was sold :) Now only a few years short of the 40, I'm going to participate and hopefully I could do some honour to the planes and crews who flew these heroic missions so low above hostile territory. So ZD740 'AD' Dhah
  22. The Beast is done - for a long time now. The slender two engine is racing gracefully to completion. Work-from-home is was fun, then it was gone and now back again. Bench time was ample, then gone, and maybe coming back. It time for the next one: This one comes with a whole lot of plastic: So, frets cleaned up, transparencies soaked in future and drying, workbench is being organized. Hope building will start soon. Ran
  23. RMS Titanic Easy-Click System with 3D backdrop (05599) 1:600 Revell There can’t be many people that have not heard of the awful loss of life that occurred when the Titanic’s maiden voyage intersected with an iceberg, causing huge rips in the side of the vessel and overwhelming the watertight doors, and confounding the belief that she was unsinkable. At the end of the day on 14th April 1912 she hit the iceberg and began taking on water. Less than three hours later she broke up and slipped beneath the surface with many of the passengers still aboard, and many more
  24. As part of my effort to clear my backlog of started kits I have dug out my Matchbox Spitfire. I started this literaly decades ago, but didn’t get far. I have looked at it occasionally, but no action. Then I bought some Xtradecal decals for it, SAC MkIX undercarriage legs, MasterCasters interior, Master gun barrels. Finally I found out about the Grey Matter correction set for the nose, which of course I immediately ordered on a wim. Having now spent about ten times what the original kit cost, guilt has led me to this, my first WIP. It will not be a tutorial, I am not that good, it will not be
  25. Hello Again, this is the second of my recent builds, once again built straight out of the box and painted with Tamiya acrylics. I'm not sure I've got the colour right I think it may be a little dark, also I'm not sure the two probes on the nose are positioned correctly and you will notice that the decals have silvered so overall I'm not totally satisfied with this build, please be kind. Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are welcome.
