    Vought Vindicator

    My third build for this GB. This makes nine concurrent builds in four seperate GB... This is the new Special Hobby Vought Vindicator - the SB2U-1 version to be exact. I've always wanted to build a Vindicator ever since seeing Alan W Hall's build of the Rareplanes vacform in Airfix Magazine over forty years ago. I've been trying to get one of those for ages, but now I don't need to. So... the box... Special hobby have released three versions of this aircraft; SB2U-1, SB2U-2, SB2U-3 and Chesapeake. They have moulded three different fuselage sprues to cater for the differences. This is the -1 and -2 sprue. As you can see, it is a typical modern short run moulding. The remaining parts are common to all kits, but this sprue has used a metal tool and is a lot sharper with detail more defined. As you can see, there is also a transparent sprue and a resin .50cal machine gun. There are three markings options, which you can see here. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234937823-new-sb2u-vindicators-in-172-scale/#entry1288542 I will be building the VB-3 option. Gotta love those Willow green bands! I'm really looking forward to this one!
  2. Here's some reasons why you should buy from us @ MJW Models. First things first, we have our own Website and Ebay Shop but we recommend you buy from our Website, as the prices are a bit cheaper as we don't have Ebay fees to worry about. 1) - Competitive prices on both our Ebay shop and Website. Our Website offers a further small reduction for 'cash' or bank transfer payments. 2) - We always have a range of kits on Special Offer, which is usually 20% (sometimes as much as 40%) off UK RRP or better. 3) - Sensible Postage rates. We can't give away the postage but we try to make sure the postage reflects the actual cost to post items. On Ebay our price per item includes the UK postal charge but our Item prices and postage prices are separate on the Website, making it easier to see the actual item cost. 4) - Fast Delivery. Our post is collected every afternoon Monday-Friday, except for bank holidays. We post everything within 1 working day but usually if you order by early afternoon, your item(s) will go on the same day. The Royal Mail usually takes 1 - 2 working days to deliver our post. Express post is available too for an additional cost. Anything bought over the weekend is posted on the following Monday. 5) - Although we are a mail order service, we don't mind if people want to collect anything but bear in mind we trade from home so we don't have a shop to look round! Also, we don't recommend coming to collect small things like mask or etch, as they only cost 80p to post, which is a lot less than petrol costs! 6) - Customer Service. As we trade from home, we will sometimes be able to answer queries 'out of hours' via email, speeding up query and potential problem solving. We try our best to resolve any problems that crop up but there are limits to what we can do but so far most things have been resolved satisfactorily. 7) - We stock certain ranges but we can order in a lot of things from ranges we don't stock. Please feel free to ask if we can order in something and what the price might be. You never know we might save you some money, we have on a number of occasions, specially ordered in items for people, even though we don't stock them. Here's the ranges that we stock Aircraft kits and Accessories from. 1/48 - Eduard (kits, etch, masks and brassin), Hobby Boss, Kinetic, Kitty Hawk, Special Hobby, Trumpeter, 3D Kits, Aires, Quickboost, True Details and Xtradecal. 1/72 - Airfix, Azur, Eduard (kits, etch, masks and brassin), Frrom Azur, Hobby Boss, MPM, Special Hobby, Sword, Xtrakit, 3D Kits, Airwaves, Quickboost, True Details and Xtradecal. We also stock Eduard 1/44 and 1/32 kits, Lifecolor Paint sets and Vallejo 8 colour Model Air paint sets. Lastly we get kits by Meng and Great Wall Hobby when we can get them in cheap. http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/ http://stores.ebay.co.uk/MJW-Models thanks Mike

The one or 2 bits we haven't got should be here in the coming week. Please purchase from our Website, as you'll find the prices cheaper than our Ebay shop (especially with the recently enforced Ebay changes). http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/ If there is anything we haven't got, please request it from us and we'll see what we can do. If it's part of ranges we stock, we will probably add it to what we stock. thanks Mike
  4. Just in and loaded up ready to be bought are the 2 latest 1/48 kits from Eduard - the Mig-21PFM and Messerschmitt Bf110C-6. The Mig is a standard Profipack kit with some parts from the other Mig kits Eduard do but with a whole load of new parts specifically for the PFM version. Quality is as expected as high as on the previous Mig-21 kits. Mask and colour etch are included but no resin parts. The Bf110 is the standard Bf110C kit with additional Brassin resin components to convert it to a Mk 101 30mm cannon carrying C-6. Colour etch and mask are included and there are markings for a day fighter and an all black night fighter. This kit is a Ltd Ed release. Both Eduard kits are priced at £29.50, which is over £4.00 less than Hannants! http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/01eduard-148--kits---profipack-114-c.asp Also just in is Special Hobby's awesome looking 1/48 Heinkel He115 floatplane. It is a detailed multi media kit, with finely detailed plastic parts, injection moulded canopy, finely cast resin parts and some photo etch parts (including seatbelts). There are markings for 3 different aircraft including ones with a nose mounted MG151 20mm cannon. Our price is £46.50, which is over £7 off the Hannants price and less then their 10% off pre order price! http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/special-hobby-148--kits-120-c.asp thanks Mike
  5. I am, hopefully in with this:- And the sprues and AM. I have some Eduard seatbelts to add as well. I said hopefully as I am way behind on the F-18 STGB and need to wrestle my Growler into something vaguely resembling a Hornet rather than a pile of plastic and filler.
  6. Just a quick reminder that as well as many special offers, we have been keeping up with the new releases from the ranges we stock (at discounted prices of course!).

We have been keeping up to date with all the new Brassin, Zoom etch and masks in 1/48 and 1/72, for example we have the Zoom etch, mask and Brassin wheels for the Academy 1/48 F-4B Phantom II kit. We have also been keeping up with the new kit releases and the latest F-15E and Bf109 Weekend kit will be here soon. http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/ thanks Mike
  7. Hi all, Finally got my mits on the SH Anson so I'll do a WIP for it over the next week. I'm actually at a family meeting type thing this weekend, so I wont start building till sunday evening. However, I do have shots of the kit; Unfortunately this resin engine cowl is outta shape :/ Some lovely PE Nicely printed Crisp, clean and clear Cheers, Ben.
  8. Hello everyone! I want to show you a series of models of the Italian aircraft. I'll start with this model of attack aircraft. It was built in the summer of 2011. A set of Special Hobby is pretty good, although it`s necessary to apply the putty and finalize some details. I modified the engine, machine guns, altered sight in the cockpit, added a few panels of foil and navigation lights. Painted with acrylic from Vallejo and Akan. Some photos of the build process. Coloring a plane from the 129th assault squadron. Tobruk, in November 1940. I hope the model will be of interest to you. Ivan
  9. I've finally managed to get my hands on a Sword Harrier T.4/T.4N. When the kit first came out, I seem to recall its attracting a lot of favourable comment but it's all gone very quiet now! The kit looks pretty good to me, and good VFM as well, though ISTR some chatter about whether the tail boom was too wide. So open question: what improvements would the Sword Harrier T.4 benefit from? (I'll already be using the Freightdog intakes.)
