  1. Hi all - just wondered if anyones had a chance to see if the Hasegawa Mk IX wings or the ICM/Revell Mk XVI wings fit onto the new kit, or perhaps even the Airfix Seafire XVII ones. Just contemplating a build..... Cheers Jonners
  2. It was only late last year that I got back into scale modelling after being a wargamer for years. My first kit was a 1/48th Revell Apache, but the first WW2 plane (my mainstay as a youngster) was obviously a Spitfire. This is Airfix's old tooling MkVb. Its mainly out the box, but with a resin cockpit set, resin wheels and brass 20mm cannons. The canopy wouldn't fit in the open positon, hence the closed over hood, but open side door. Just imagine its been closed over due to some rain or something..... Anyway, it was painted with a mix of humbrol, Vallejo and Revell paints. Main colours were airbrushed (my first real use of the airbrush as well btw!). Cheers for looking.
  3. Hello All, This year, rather than launching back into my current project, I've been drawn into finishing some old stuff that's been hanging around for too long: Airfix 1/72 Old Spitfire IX (started 2010) Loved it. 100% OOB. Humbrol 116/106/64/90. Old decals needed tidying up to deal with out-of-register issues but settled down beautifully. Walkways and lettering done by black pen, with silver pen for chipping. It almost looks like a Spitfire from this angle! Airfix 1/72 new Bf110C (started 2011) The undercarriage, bombs and tanks are beautifully moulded, in sharp contrast to the trenches all over the airframe. I didn't like the RLM70 (Hu117) and then I really struggled with the main decals, which refused to conform and silvered really badly.Yesterday I did the rest of the stencilling with black pen and red paint, so I didn't have to wrestle with about 100 more decals, and then weathered it and called it Done. Now I can get on with my current projects (except I just found that old MPM Defiant I started 2 years ago...) Thanks for looking, Adrian
  4. We just got the latest Xtradecal sets in stock 1/48 - Spitfire PR XIX, RAF P-47 Thunderbolts (mostly SEAC), Emergency Rescue Thunderbolts USAAF 1/72 - Sunderland, F-102A Delta Dagger in Europe, Post war RAF Tactical Roundels. All are cheaper than Hannants, even when the postage is added in! http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/xtradecal-95-c.asp thanks Mike
  5. Spitfire Mk.IXe Eduard 1:144 The Supermarine Spitfire was a superb fighter aircraft which went into production shortly before the start of the Second World War. The variants of Spitfire, up to and including the Mk.V version, proved to be an effective adversary for Germany's Messerschmitt bf.109, especially during the Battle of Britain; however, in 1942, the appearance of the axis force's new Focke-Wulf FW.190 caused concern for Britain as it appeared to match the Spitfire in combat. This change in the balance of power in the air prompted an urgent need to upgrade the Spitfire's specifications in order to overcome the FW.190 in air to air combat. A new improved design was authorised, under the designation of the Mk.VIII, but the design and production of this aircraft would take too long to get into service, especially as this new threat was current and needed an immediate fix. Supermarine's designers proposed an interim solution; utilising the same engine that would be used in the new Mk.VIII but fitted into a modified Mk.V airframe, the plan being that this would shorten the all important production time frame. The urgency which affected the build of the Mk.IX version meant that continuous enhancements and modifications where carried out and one of these was the provision of two .5 inch machine guns, in place of the standard four .303 inch guns. This version was designated the Spitfire Mk.IXe The Mk.IXe version of the Spitfire proved to be very successful and this aircraft type went on to provide good service post war, not only for the RAF, but also to other nations air forces, some examples being: Czechoslovakia; the Netherlands; Israel and France - operating in French Indo-China. Further information can be found via the various on-line engine searches or specific sites such as here at the Spitfire Site The Kit This kit is one of Eduard's "Dual Combo" series in that two kits are provided in one box. The two aircraft are not exactly the same however as one of these is intended to be built as a standard 'C wing' type whilst the other has the clipped type of wing layout. The contents of the box consists of thirty-six components, allocated over four sprues of medium grey, injection moulded, plastic; two clear plastic one-piece canopy pieces; one decal sheet; one set of masks; and an eight page combined instruction sheet and colour markings booklet. Two of the sprues are identical,, each containing the fuselage halves; tailplanes; wheels, oleos & wheel covers; spinner; exhausts; and intake cowls. Externally, the panel lines are nicely detailed and even has detail representation in the wheel wells - remember, this is 1:144 and the wheel wells openings are less than 3mm across. Internally, there is no detail at all; however, Eduard has produced a photo-etch cockpit detail set as a separately sold item. I think I understand, and agree, with Eduard's strategy here; mainly in the fact that not every modeller wishes to super-detail the internals of a tiny 1:144 model, preferring just to paint the inside of the model black or a very dark grey. This allows Eduard to keep the cost of the model down to a reasonable price but still providing, separately, the ability to super detail with the photo-etched set. A second sprue has the wing piece for the universal, or 'C wing' as it was known, layout. This is a one-piece wing unit, as compared to other suppliers traditional split top and bottom wing pieces which invariably require filling and sanding to remove the glued join line. Eduard is to commended for using this format in their casting process. The third sprue has the clipped wing variation which, I understand, reduced the roll rate in the real aircraft. This is a nice addition, to have separate wing formats within a two-kit offering, as this allows the modeller to build two different variants of the Spitfire and not just two of the same aircraft with different markings. The sprue title demarks this wing as the LF (low flying) Mk.IXe version however not all LF Mk.IXe's had clipped wings. The final plastic items are a pair of clear-plastic canopies; one for each model. These are nicely formed and allow a fair degree of transparency within the tiny cockpit area should you be considering installing the, separately produced, cockpit detailing set from Eduard. Decals Eduard have really done their homework when defining what decals to provide with this kit. There are markings for both WWII and post-war Spitfires, including aircraft of the British; Czechoslovak; Israeli; Dutch and French Indo-china air forces. The register looks to be accurate and the edges are sharp and do not show any evidence of colour bleed. Each component decal has an identifying reference number which is cross linked to match their placing as documented in the instructions. Instructions and colours booklet This booklet is a small, A5 format, colour printed set of instructions and combined with colour sheets for six different aircraft. The instructions are produced in the standard exploded view; where parts go, format. The instructions detail is clear and concise with a reference box highlighting which part can be used for either variant of the kit. ] Conclusion Considering that each model, when built, is only 6.5cm long in 1:144 scale; the detail is really good and probably the best Spitfire kit I have yet seen in this scale. Add to this the extensive range of nationality variations and markings provided with the decal sheet then Eduard must surely be at the forefront in producing kits in 1:144 scale. Eduard are not content just to provide for the average 1:144 scale modeller, by producing nicely detailed kits like these; but they also cater for the advanced modeller by producing their own super-detailed sets as aftermarket items. As I have mentioned earlier, not everyone wants to super detail the cockpits etc., of their models so the kit on it's own should happily satisfy the majority of kit builders who purchase this and thereby keep the costs down. Should anyone wish to go a step further to enhance the model then they have that choice by purchasing Eduard's own aftermarket photo-etch sets. I am really pleased with this kit and hope that Eduard continue to produce these well detailed 1:144 kits. Highly recommended Review sample courtesy of .
  6. The last kit to present this year from me - it's AZ Model's 1/72 Spitfire XVIe in their new "HQ Tool" boxings (red label). This means AZ Model are now producing their kits using metal molds which greatly improves sharpness of detail, fineness of panel lines and general assembly fit. In my humble opinion, the best Spitfire ever from AZ Model. Welcome to the Champions League! The model represents a plane from RAF 421 Sqn, Reinsehlen, May 1945 - decals come from a Sword kit (I've received a sample of this kit from AZ Model via IMPS Austria, including only 'foreign' options: Greek, Belgium, French, South African but wanted to build a RAF machine). Colours used are from the Gunze/Mr.Hobby range. Weathering with artists oils and pastel chalks. Thanks for looking, have a great start into 2013 and looking forward to all those model kits you will be builiding within the coming year! Cheers from Vienna Austria Roman
  7. Red Roo Decals 4847 - The Away Team Part 1. 3 & 450 Squadrons RAAF P-51C in Italy 1044-45 This is a large sheet featuring P-51C Mustangs of 3 & 450 Sqns RAAF. The decals seem to me to be very well printed with good colour density and in register. A full side of A4 colour instructions is provided for each decal option. The sheet provides full details and roundel to make 6 models. Most aircraft feature a light blue painted rudder with the Southern Cross on it. 1. FB128/ CV Mustang III 3 Sqn Lavariano, Italy 1945 This was one of only two aircraft fitted with Malcolm hoods. The aircraft retains a white noseband remnant of ETO recognition marks, but the rest have been removed. The aircraft has at some time been repainted in a non-factory pattern camo. RAF Colours used. 2. FX880/OK Mustang III, 450 Sqn Lavariano, Italy 1945 This was the other MK III fitted with a Malcolm Hood. The aircraft has patches of a lighter green paint either side of the engine cowlings suggesting something has been removed. The aircraft has at some time been repainted in a non-factory pattern camo. RAF Colours used. 3. KH631/ CV-V Mustang III, 3 Sqn Italy early 1945. Aircraft has factory ANA colours (or should that be colors?) The RAF Sky band at the rear has been over painted in a darker green possibly RAF Dark Green. 4. FB244/ CV-V Mustang III, 3 Sqn RAAF Cervia Italy, Jan 1945 Aircraft has been repainted in a non factory pattern using RAF colours. There is a small crocodile logo in black on the port side. The codes overlap the serial. 5. FB244/OK-F Mustang III 450 Sqn Lavariano, Italy 1945. The 3 Sqn codes were over painted in slightly lighter colours and these are given as decals to apply before applying the 450 Sqn codes.It appears this aircraft also had a repaint/repair around the port windscreen. 6. KH616/ CV-<> Mustang III, 3 Sqn RAAF, Fano Italy Dec 1944 Aircraft has factory ANA colours. Spinner is Red. Red Roo Decals 4848 - The Away Team Part 2. 457 Squadron RAAF Spitfires in the UK 1941-42 This is a medium sheet featuring 4 Spitfires of 457 Sqn RAAF. The decals seem to me to be very well printed with good colour density and in register. A full side of A4 colour instructions is provided for each decal option. The sheet provides full details and roundels to make 4 models. 1. Spitfire MK1, X4817, BP-C 457 Sqn RAAF, Jurby Isle Of Man Sept 1941 Aircraft in the standard RAF Dark Green, Ocean Grey & Medium Sea Grey camouflage scheme. A small Australian Flags was carried on the cockpit door. The significance of a small white rabbit under the windscreen is not known. 2. Spitfire MKI, N3246, BP-P 457 Sqn RAAF, Jurby Isle Of Man Sept 1941 Aircraft in the standard RAF Dark Green, Ocean Grey & Medium Sea Grey camouflage scheme. 3. Spitfire MKIIA, P8175, BP-R, 457 Sdn RAAF, Andreas, Isle Of man, Oct 1941 Aircraft in the standard RAF Dark Earth, Dark Green & Sky type S. This aircraft was a presentation aircraft that bore a silhouette map of Australia, with Charleville written beneath it. The aircraft also carried the legend “Baltic Exchange II” on the starboard side beneath the windscreen. 4. Spitfire MKVb, BL351, NP-H 457 Sdn RAAF, Andreas, Isle Of man, Feb 1942 Flown by Flt Lt J.A.A Gibson, B flight commander. Born in England but lived in New Zealand Gibson is believed to be the only Allied Pilot who flew operations in The Battle for France, The Battle Of Britain, the ETO and SWPA. He achieved 14 victories in The battles for France and Britain. Red Roo Decals 4848 - The Away Team Part 3. 457 Squadron RAAF Spitfires in the UK, MTO & Europe 1943-45 This is a medium sheet featuring 4 Spitfires of 457 Sqn RAAF. The decals seem to me to be very well printed with good colour density and in register. A full side of A4 colour instructions is provided for each decal option. The sheet provides full decals to make 5 models. 1. Spitfire MkVc, EE797, BQ-Y, El Dabra, Egypt Oct-Dec 1943. This aircraft was one of the first taken on strength by 451 Sqn. The aircraft was finished ion the Dark Earth, Dark Green over Azure Blue scheme. The Dark Green was over painted onto Middle stone areas leaving some slight over spray 2. Spitfire MkIXc MA466, BQ-S, Corsica, France May 1944. 451 Sqn was redeployed to support the invasion of Italy & Southern Europe during May 1944. This aircraft was finished in the high altitude scheme of Medium Sea Grey uppers over PRU Blue lowers. 3. Spitfire MkIXc MH771, BQ-M, Corsica July 1944. This aircraft was finished in the standard day fighter scheme, with a red spinner. 4. Spitfire MkXVIe TB592, NI-V, Matlaske, UK, March 1945. By this time 451 Sqn had been serving in the UK Since December 1944. They then moved to Marston in Feb 1945 before joinin12 group in March 1945. Operating from Matlaske the sqn participated in the hunt for V-2 rocket sites until the end of WWII. This aircraft was finished in the standard day fighter scheme. 5. Spitfire MKXIVe NH895, NI-K, Berlin, Germany October 1945. After the end of hostilities 451 sqn served as a part of the occupying forces in Germany, based at Gatow Airport in Berlin. Unlike other aircraft in the sqn NH895 did not have the camera ports painted over. The aircraft had its sky band overpainted with lead to slightly darker paint in this area Overall Conclusions These are excellent quality sheets which provide more than enough options for those modellers wanting to model RAAF Squadrons which fought in Europe. The decals look well printed, in register with a good depth of colour. The instructions are excellent and show that great deal of research has gone into producing these sheets. Even though the 1/48 sheets have been reviewed here, I should point out these are available in 1/72 as well. Review sample courtesy of
  8. Test build of new AZmodel Supermarine Spitfire Mk. XVIe in 1/72
  9. Hi all, This is my first post on the forum as i've been laying low for a while checking out the awsome builds on here. My main interest is Model Boats, however I fancy getting back into the Airfix scene. I did models as a young boy (im now 27) however these weren't of the best quality. Im now loaded up with airbush and compressor and hope to do a good job this time. I've just got myself an Airfix 1/24 Spitfire Mk. Vb (A50141) and whilst I love the spitfire, I don't really know the difference in variations between the different versions. I wish to convert (somehow) the model to be that of PS915 "the last" - HOW? The main issue I see staring at me is the 5 bladed prop. I believe PS915 has a griffon engine. What aftermarket parts are recommended firstly for this scale of spitfire and what parts would I need to convert it to the same model as that of PS915? Can custom decals be made up? Any help would be very much appreciated Dan
  10. I started this as a thread in Work in progress. I am suprised that our usual Guru's haven't come to the fore. So I am do "repost" in the discussion section in the hope that it involes some reponse. ..Sailor' Malan's Spitfire that he flew with 74 Squadron in 1940, ZP-A (K9953)...I have Southern Expo 70th Anniversary decal sheet which shows a Sky Blue. Now we all know that the Stadard 1940 Scheme started of as Black/White and the went to Type S (Tamiya XF-21). What is the correct underside colour for Malan's Spit? Hope to hear some replies soon Regards Sean

    Glue

    Long story short I slipped will walking with my Spit. (Lesson don't model when you are tired and cant see dog pee late at night). I broke the Horizontal stabilisers on both sides of the tail. At the moment. Once again the model is at bare plastic. I still think this is recoverable and can turn out to be a winner. I have: 1 x Revell Glue (Blue needle bottle) 1 x Gorilla Super Glue 1 x Locktie Blue (from Halfords) The breaks are clean. Any suggestions of which glue to use and the best way to effect a repair. I am working in 1/48 Thanks
  13. Have just started the Airfix 1/48 Spitfire V a as flown by Douglas Bader and have a question regardibg the oil cooler fitted to this aircraft. The instructions show a version with a "D" shaped opening but my reference show a different version with a round hole at the front. The kit does contain another oil cooler and this has a round hole but is the wrong shape in plan. In fact when I think about both types included in the kit box seem wrong. Can anyone throw some light on this subject please? Cheers, Don
  14. I have laid down my base coat on a 1:48 Airfix Spitfire Va. The Painting diagrams are not to scale. I could try and scan them in and enlarge the diagram to make paintiing masks. I see some people use blue-tack. I am not that skilled with an airbrush yet so I would have to mask the camo. I see in Brett Green's video he raises the mask with blue tack. Of course he is working with a commercial product and on a 109, neither of which help. Any suggestions?

  16. Etch Detail Sets for the Italeri Spitfire Mk.IX 1:72 Eduard First entering service with 64 Sqn at Hornchurch in July 1942, the Mk.IX was impressed into service to counter the new FW190A which was causing great concern due to its capability over the Spitfire Mk.V. The Mk.IX was intended to be a stop gap whilst the Mk.VIII was developed, however such was its success, no less than 5665 were eventually built. There are several kits for the 1/72 Mk.IX to choose from, however these etch sets are aimed at the established Italeri kit although I suspect they can be used in others with a small amount of work. As is quite common now, Eduard provide the more comprehensive pack containing two frets giving internal and external enhancements as well as providing the lower cost Zoom set that primarily focuses on the cockpit. Set 73431 This is the comprehensive two fret pack. The interior fret comes with pre-painted parts, although like some isn't self adhesive. The Italeri kit comes with a fairly basic cockpit and no side wall detail, so this is a most welcome set. Further more, the canopy is supplied in two parts so you have the option of having it open so all your hard work in the pit won't be wasted ! Starting with the side panels, a complete pre=painted side wall is provided for each side. These are then built up with no less than 10 parts per side of additional etch components such as the throttle cluster. The panel receives the same thorough treatment with three parts to produce a truly 3D look. Framework for the gunsight is provided, however some scratch building is necessary to provide the circular sight lens. The kit seat can be replaced by a fully etch and far more accurate replica that includes seatbelts which are pre-painted. The complete armour and framework assembly behind the seat is also provided in the etch sets. Finally, the access door can also be replaced with an etch part. Moving on to the exterior of the aircraft. with this set, you have the option to have the flaps in the open position thanks to a fully detailed set. Some plastic rod is required here of about 0.6mm diameter to act as flap hinges that run the full length of the flaps. Unfortunately this plastic isn't provided in the set. The radiators are enhanced with mesh front and rear as well as rear flaps that require the original parts to be cut away. These can then be set to the angle you desire. The main undercarriage is treated to some fine Oleo scissors to replace the bulky and toy like kit scissors as well as some brake lines and replacement doors of a more realistic thickness. A nice little touch is the inclusion of very intricate flap position indicators for the top wing. Further surface enhancements are included in the set such as the access panel on the left behind the cockpit, windscreen mirror, canopy opening handle and rudder control rods. A great little feature included is some moulds in the fret to enable the moulding of some tear drop shaped navigation and fuselage lights. The instructions show how to do this using clear plastic rod melted over a flame then pressed into the provided moulds to create the lights. These are worth keeping in the tool box ! Zoom Set SS431 This is the cheaper alternative that just includes the coloured etch. Unfortunately, you will only be able to partially kit the cockpit out with this set as the seat, rear framework and armour are all included on the fret that isn't provided. What you do get though is the beautiful side walls, access door, main panel and seatbelts as you can see in the image above. Conclusion This set will really bring your Mk.IX alive with some fine detail. I recommend plenty of dry fitting along the way as the Italeri kit can present challenges during the assembly stage, but with some patience and planning your efforts will be quite rewarding. Having reviewed the comprehensive set 73431, I can't help but feel that I'd be disappointed using the Zoom set due to the exclusions in the cockpit by comparison, but that is a reflection of the great work Eduard have done here.

  17. I ordered a Trumpeter riveter and a Tamiya II Scriber. However the question is how much (if any) riveting should one add to a 1:48 Spit and if so, when and where. Lastly if one is going to add rivets is there any good source drawings available? I have looked at some reference photos the further away one gets of course the rivets become invisible, but the Spit was full of them as it was a stressed skin riveted over a frame. Well I hope that I have now opened an interesting topic, perhaps even a can of worms - when is detail, too much detail?
  18. I've got a slight issue I need help with. I'm steadily working along on my Airfix Spit Mk 1 with Watts 2 bladed prop and I see that the birds from 1939 to at least the early fall of 1940 had protruding flash suppressors on the outer wing guns, at least before the red arming tape covers were added in early 1941. I've done web searches for .303s with flash suppressors and they look to be cone shaped. But the Spit suppressors I've seen in pictures from the 1939-40 period (assuming they are suppressors and not some other housing) seem to look more cylindrical in shape. So I am scratching my head a little here. I can't necessarily leave them off as they are a rather prominant feature on Spitfires from the pre-war period.
  19. This is the one of the kits you must build before you die, a huge pleasure to build. Hope you like it Saludos

    Propellers

    As some of you may know I am working in Douglas Baders Airfix 1/48. The Instruction call for attaching the propeller when the two halves of the fueslage. I theink the idea is so your models prop can turn.However all videos and books on model bulding depict aircraft diring construction with the propellor as the last thing to go on. This makes sense as it is going to get in they way when airbrushing and assebling the rest of the model with a high risk of getting broken. Have I missed some trick or crucial step?
  21. I've had an Airfix new mould Mk.I to finish for a couple of months now and I've been thinking of some interesting marking to add to this model. For some reason, I'd like to do an early aircraft with B type fuselage roundels and black/white undersurfaces and to make it a bit more different, the early non armoured windscreen but the bulged hood. Among the aircrafts with these features, I've found references to K9906 "FZ-L", aircraft that was flown by Robert Stanford Tuck. There are several reasons why I'd like to build this one, not last the fact that I can manage to paint the FN-L codes... I've seen a couple of pictures of this aircraft when it had aluminium undersurfaces, but I've read that it later acquired black/white undersurfaces with elevators and ailerons left in aluminium. Is there any picture of the aircraft in this scheme ? Or at least, any confirmation it was repainted this way ? On the subject of this aircraft, what size would the various roundels be ? I've seen references to 25" on the fuselage and 40" upper wing, with none on the lower wings in the black/white scheme. Is this correct ? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help !
  22. Well this is my first model I have made since my return to the hobby after a 7 Year absence... It's the new Airfix Mk.1a kit that I bought from a Museum in Norwich... It's been brush painted (for those who speak Humbrol, in 29, 30. 33, 90) Ok, the finish isn't perfect, and I smudged a bit of glue on the Cockpit plastic... But let's just think of it as condensation I'm quite pleaed with it all in all! Chris
