  1. I fancy having a go at this with an Italian beauty! I will be building the SMER 1/48 Macchi MC200 Saetta. There are two finishing options provided on the decal sheet. One is a machine in a green and sand "mottle" with grey undersides, the other in green uppersurface with grey underneath, captioned as "Greece 1942". I shall be following many (if not all) of the entries for this GB. Looking forward to Saturday when it'll be "Tally Ho, chaps/Horrido/Banzai/insert appropriate fighter jock slang here"!
  2. I've thought long and hard about the Heller kits I've got in the stash and I've decided the lure is too strong to re-visit the bane of my childhood modelling- The Fieseler Storch. I've got the Smer boxing with "Super Decal " and "Hitech" PE which should only make it harder to do Obligatory box and sprue pics will follow when One Drive decides to load the previews allowing me to embed them here......
  3. I wasn't going to do another build, then Models For Heroes volunteers and beneficiaries said about a Battle of British group build. Having seen the fantastic work from both @PeterB and @Heather Kay in regards to Italian airforce aircraft, I thought I'd have a go. I picked this kit up off an auction site and some decals/ transfers from Hannants, not built a Smër kit before and I've never seen a 1/40 kit either. No bells or whistles on this build, as it comes with a clear stand. I'm going to use the build to improve my airbrushing skills now I've got a bit of the aircraft bug. Hopefu
  4. Here's my entry into this GB. Smer's 'Hi-Tech' Hawker Tempest which I believe is the old Heller/Airfix mould? Nothing Hi-Tech about it though, just etch for the radiator and instrument panel. Could had at least seat belts as well! Anyway, it's going to be OOB with no scratch-building or scribing of surfaces, just a gentle rub down of the raised areas. Since I bought an Xtradecal sheet to do a Butterworth Tempest II I'm going to go with a 56 Sqn subject, SN254/US*T, CO, Sqn leader M.P. Kilburn, Fassberg, late 1945. Details of the Squadron are here : http://www.historyofw
  5. Yet another WIP thread I know, but in all probability the Pup rebuild, DH4, Dalek and Bulldog will all be finished soon, just leaving the HP O/400 Stuka, Albatros, Junkers and the Snark. As part of our Irish Air Corp group build I''m going to try to build a reasonable model out of this. BTW if you experience a sense of Deja vue then it's because there is a prior build of this kit on Britmodeller and except for the colour scheme and some interpretive differences I will be pretty much copying it Well the good news is that the shape is pretty good, so no major work
  6. I'm more of a plane builder, but every now and then I get a bit sidetracked with things that tick a box for me. And this old kit does just that! The car is from an era that is pure motor racing joy and beauty, with the TOP drivers and makers coming to the fore. Very sadly unrepresented by the kit manufacturers old and new. The kit has origins so old it is almost contemporary with the car. The floor pan has a big "SMER" stamp on the underside but as far as I know the original tooling is by Merit. There's many shortcomings with the kit, but I think it
  7. Smer kit, mostly OOB with a scratch interior.
  8. Hi folks,I looked long and hard for another build and thought I'd let the old kit lunacy continue and see what I could do with the Smer 1/48 (really 1/50) Walrus,now I did one years ago and have to say it's not a bad kit for £6:99.A good platform for a bit of scratchbuilding cockpit wise and edging back into a larger scale too.Once the Kingfisher and Seahawk are done this and the other one I'm posting will be my "Dark Nights" project.
  9. Hi folk's fourth and LAST(yes last) build is another shot in the dark,Smers release of Lord knows who's mold.I have looked at this kit a few times so now's the chance to build it. It looks half decent on a couple of sites once it arrives we'll see,£7 another cheapie.
  10. Hi folk's fourth and last build will be this behemoth! Now what possesses anyone to replace an ancient failed Frog Swordfish with something that could be mistaken for a vacform it has so much flash is anybody's guess but I have,that said I reckon with a bit of scratchbuilding(I've applied to the local council for planning permission) a decent looking model could emerge,We'll see...............
  11. Hi! SMER Re 2000. Czech incarnation of Italian ARTIPLAST 1970 - years. Modest retro. Discussion about the copy and detail of the set to anything. Similar, okay. Forgotten scale, 1/50. The casts of dusty stamps praguers put away the new decal. Reproduced Re 2000 series 3, with a dull fairing. It seems to be the Navy air force, with a duck on the keel. In a series of 1/50 of the set are not orphan: held in the hands of FIAT Cr 32 and Macchi 200. Can be, available and other airplanes. The drawings are not used,
  12. I've lurked her a long time and thoroughly enjoy the WIP threads and take great modelling inspiration from them, so I reckon the time has come to start my own. Seeing as how this is (I think) an interesting subject which will have many modelling challenges I thought it would be a good first WIP. I do also have a wip thread on the Irish IPMS Forum which will be broadly similar, but then again might not be. This is my intended subject asn as luck would have it the SMER Bulldog has Decals for the black wavy line. The Gamecock was an improved Grebe which in turn was an im
  13. Hi- There must be a word for that time space between dropping your prized creation knowing its going to end up in bits and it hitting the ground and....er... ending up in bits. In this case I had a bit of a disaster in placing the final decals. This Morane either hit a microburst or (more likely) my left hand hit it and it went into an inverted spin before hitting the floor. It all happened in slow motion. The wing struts and cabane struts partially detached - still working on it. Pretty sure this is the old Heller kit- cheap and cheerful - with a few of the parts nee
  14. When I signed up for this Group Build I planned on doing a Seafire but I'm a little bored of Supermarine's finest at the moment so have decided to do something completely different. So I'm in with this: If there's time, I might do one of the Special Hobby ones I have in the stash (and a Seafire).
  15. The Dewoitine D.510 was an all-metal, open-cockpit, fixed-undercarriage monoplane fighter aircraft, used by the French Air Force in the 1930s. They saw action against the Japanese flying for Chinese Air Force, and in North Africa. This particular kit is the Smer reboxing of the original Heller kit, which I bought as part of a job lot years ago on EvilBay, which averaged out at about a £1 a kit (what's not to like ! ) I built this to mark the 10th anniversary of Britmodeller in the Group Build, work in progress below The kit went together real
  16. This is Smer 1/48 scale Macchi Castoldi MC72. This kit was completed as part of the recent Flying Boats and Floatplanes GB. The aircraft represented here is MM181, that went on to claim records for the fastest floatplane. Work in progress here I hope you like it cheers Pat
  17. Late as ever to join a GB..... i got this kit many years ago as one of those, fit for spares type listings on evilBay, downside is someone had previously butchered the box and decals, upside is at just over a £1 a kit what was there to lose ! I think this may be the old Heller one, reboxed by Smer ? cheers Pat
  18. Working away from home this week so thought it was too good an opportunity to miss not to try to build something while I'm away. So a quick look in the stash found this Look not too many parts, so it should be a nice easy build ! Famous last words of many a Britmodeller. Extensive decals included So the challenge is, get this finished before I go home Thursday night, plus Jaime didn't have a Smer Kit or something Italian for his statistics Watch this space ! cheers Pat
  19. Yesterday I did some portraits of a friend and his family. He had a woman living with him who had 2 young children and 2 Bull Arab dogs. She had barely enough money to feed her kids let alone 2 grown big dogs. She left and left the dogs behind, my friend is not overly rich and has 3 kids, a wife and 2 dogs of his own. I am a little distressed over the state of the dogs. I am starting this kit to get my mind off the dogs. This is a female 1yr old, notice the wound on her leg. 2 yr old male The Wife and I are thinking of joining ARRG (Ani
  20. Hi everyone, Here is my latest model, an ancient heller kit produced by Smer. I have to admit that I have a weakness to vintage heller kits and that is why I occasionally bought this one. It however turned out to be not so accurate and the molding itself is already quite worn. Anyway I managed to finish it somehow. So here it is, pictures are poor, photographing is not my best skill
  21. This is my first ever GB, so I may not finish it in time , but I'll try my best.​ I'm going to try to do Gen. Richthofen's Storch if I can find out code letters, or Löhr's if not. This its for a planned Schwerer Gustav dio, with this landing/ taxying next to it, on an improvised strip. As you will see in the photos, I have done a bit of the cockpit, and a bit of fuselage painted, but it is otherwise unstarted (I hope this is ok). This'll probably be mostly OOB, pics will be up soon, by the weekend at the latest. Also, anyone with info on the markings of Wolfram Richthofen's Storch, that would
  22. Looking for an easy build I took the SMER (re-boxed Heller) Storch out of the box... and then the fun started. One of my favourite aircraft, I had a search on BM and found this thread discussing the captured Storch used by Air Vice Marshal Harry Broadhurst and used to ferry Churchill around Europe. Had to be done, WiP thread here. Here's a link to on YouTube and some shots of the finished article.Primed with AK Interactive white, paint is decanted H24 rattle can airbrushed and hand brushed Mr Hobby Dark Brown and H30 Dark Green. Finished with W&N Matt varnish hand brushed. Transfers
  23. Some of the original OEZ/Kovozávody Prostějov's (KP) classics Sukhoi 1/48th kits were becoming difficult to find. They're to be re-released soon by SMĚR (http://www.smer.cz/en/). ref.0853 - Su-7BKL "Fitter-A" - http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10326152 ref.0854 - Su-7BMK "Fitter-A" - http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10326153 ref.0855 - Su-17/22M-3 "Fitter-H"- http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10326154 ref.0856 - Su-17/22M-4 "Fitter-K"- http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10326155 ref.0857 - Su-25 "Frogfoot-A"- http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10326156 ref.0858 - SU-25UB/UBK "Frogfoot-B" - http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/103
  24. I am going to build a MiG-17F as a fighter bomber as used by Egypt in the war of attrition against Israel form the 6 days war of 67 up to the 1973 war to reclaim the Sinai peninsula. good in interesting reading from the arab/ not so well known point of view: Arab MiGs vol. 1-5 from Harpia publishing first dilema: which camouflage scheme to do? Egypt started to camouflage its aircraft right after the 67 war for good reasons. in the beginning quite crudely with light blue/ light grey undersides and sand/green/brown upper sides. hardly all aircrasft seem to be different. Later the famous nile
  25. Hi all, I originally meant my next WIP to be an IL-2, but changed my mind after I seen a Yak-3 online that I liked the look of and wanted to make. This will be my first kit with aftermarket parts; currently only the decals, but I'm looking into some metal exhausts (with no luck so far). I'll be building a small diorama as well, with Zvezda's Soviet Air Force Ground Crew. I'll be building Lt.Col. A.D. Yakimenko's plane. "Yakimenko entered combat against the Japanese over Khalkhin Gol in summer 1939 [and] was given credit for 3 individual and 4 shared victories. Yakimenko met the requirements
