  1. Hi Friends! Good kit Specia Hobby I broke the front of the canopy, I had to do this part again Painted Gunze Enjoy watching!
  2. Hi mates! Let's start my next build here after a long time. I was quite saddened since the Moa had vanished and I had no motivation to post my builds here, but I would like to share with you my new project, which is this very beautiful machine - the GAL ST-25 Monospar (a piece of art for me just like the DH.89 and other De Havillands...) And it will be no ordinary build - I decided to open the canopy roof and the side door too. The kit provides you with very detailed resin interior which I would like to show off. I made the decision to recreate the British G-ADWH Jubilee Monosp
  3. Hi All, My next project will be Special Hobby's 1:48 Fairey Fulmar. This aircraft was introduced into service with the Fleet Air Arm in 1940, and continued the tradition of two seat aircraft employed by that service, the act of navigation whilst flying considered beyond a mere pilot. Powered by the Merlin III, the Fulmar MkI was underpowered compared to its single seat RAF equivalents. Nevertheless, the aircraft saw combat in a variety of theatres and at its peak equipped 20 FAA squadrons. Here's the box art: And the sprue shots:
  4. This will be my entry to this GB, Special Hobby's lovely kit of the Meteor NF.12... The Kit ...I usually try and do something different than what's in the box, the kit provides markings for 25, 46 and 64 Sqns RAF, unfortunately the 25 Sqn markings are incorrect as Special Hobby show the bars as being silver and blue, not silver and black which is correct. For this build I'll be building a 264 Sqn jet stationed at RAF Middleton St George in 1957, these markings will come from Modeldecal sheet 93 and are the yellow and black bars... The stickers
  5. Hi guys. Want to show you my second Viggen. Early this year I built the Sk 37 from the Special Hobby Duo Pack, now the AJ 37 followed. Some extras were a pilot from PJ Production, pitot tubes from Master and the m/70 rocket pods from Maestro. I used the nice vinyl masks from DN Models for the paint scheme.
  6. Hi All, This is my attempt at Special Hobby's lovely Firefly MkI, modelled as Z1830 of 1770 Sqn FAA, HMS Indefatigable, July 1944. I have not found any photos of the actual aircraft, but apparently it was the first production Firefly MkI and thus has the 3-bladed propellor, early canopy hood and the unfaired Hispano cannon (that's SOOO unfair!). 1770 Sqn took place in Operation Mascot, which was the unsuccessful attack on Tirpitz when she lay at anchor in Kaarfjord, Norway. Here is a link to the WIP if anyone is interested: Special Hobby's kit is a lovely offeri
  7. Hi all, Since my Whirlwind build I've realised I'm developing an interest in the more unusual & esoteric types used by the RAF during WW2. The Martin Maryland fits this category perfectly, so I procured myself one of Special Hobby's. Although in relatively limited use by the RAF, this type saw action in North Africa, and also in the defence of Malta as a reconnaissance and light bomber (eventually replaced by the Martin Baltimore). Interestingly the type was also flown by Adrian Warburton DSO & Bar, DFC & 2 Bars DFC (USA). Whilst a Pilot Officer involved in the defence
  8. Hi guys. I just finished my latest modell, number six for this year. It´s the very nice molded Gnat kit from Special Hobby in 1/72 scale. Built without any problems except the camera lenses which didn't fit properly. I used Micro Kristal Klear instead of them. Finland used the Gnat from 1958 to 1972, eleven F.1 and two FR.1 were flown by HävLLv 11 and HävLLv 21.
  9. Hi, Not sure when I will make a start on this but here is one that has been in my stash for a few years now, It is one of a series of related kits SH released in 2012 including the Seafire 45 and 46, and is probably related to a group of late Spitfires they also released. It replaced a Rareplanes vacform version I bought back in around 1980 which never was quite completed. The box contains some nicely detailed plastic including numerous alternative parts - props, canopies etc, and the artwork depicts a machine painted in the wartime scheme of Extra Dark Sea Grey and Dar
  10. My latest work... Special hobby Mirage F.1 EQ
  11. Hi mates, I finished this one a few days ago, one of my favourite planes. This model from Special Hobby is very nice detailed, with almost a very good fitting, and came with nice PE from Eduard. I added some scratch and wires and some rivets with my Trumpeter's riveting wheel. I enjoyed it a lot and I hope you like it... Cheers Ricardo
  12. Hi All, Here's my attempt at Special Hobby's Martin Maryland, presented as AH284 of 39 Sqn RAF, North Africa 1942. I do not have any reference pics for the aircraft in the desert scheme as presented, so it's a bit of a 'what if'. I fought this kit kicking and screaming through the latter stages, and found it all a bit of a struggle with poorly fitting parts (particularly the engines). Here's the WIP thread : Despite all the trials and tribulations I'm not displeased with the final result - it has undeniable 'shelf presence' and I'm glad I gave it a crack. Anyway, here she is
  13. For this GB I thought long and hard on what to do. Should I finally start my ASJA B5 dive bomber, or go all in on a A32A Lansen in 1/48 to please my uncle? After pondering long and hard, and looking at the stash and ongoing builds I came to the conclusion that dual booms should be a feature. Also, earlier in the Autumn I found the attack version of J21R, with a full weapon assortment, to compliment the normal fighter version that I already had. Cool! Dual J21R it is. The SAAB J21 was quite interesting project, but SAAB didn't really have the manpover to push the
  14. You guys, it's here!!! I ordered this kit from Megahobby on Tuesday night and it arrived this morning. Big kudos to Megahobby and the US Postal service. Granted, MH is in New Jersey and I'm in Maryland, so it's not that long of a trip, but considering the covid crap, I'm impressed by the speedy delivery, and I'm grateful to both. If there are any posties reading this - big thank you to all of you for the work you do during these dumb times. You are the glue holding us all together. More to come soon.
  15. I am about to embark on this kit in the Canadian colours of the 'Digby'. This of course started life as the Douglas B-18 Bolo. My question therefore is this. Was the interior repainted in Grey/Green or left as it was in chrome/bronze green as Special Hobby would have it? Further was the Canadian colour scheme of DE/DG/Night made up of British colours or their American/DuPont equivalents? TIA
  16. Hi all I have built this and finished it last week. This is the Special Hobby kit and goes together quite well. The model is built OOB apart from the Seatbelts, whip aerial and Pitot. The kit is brush painted with Humbrol enamel Alluminium. A very enjoyable kit. Hope you enjoy Thanks for looking in All the best Chris
  17. So, I've decided to give this a go... I will build "red-tail" from the box art, with lots of resin and PE upgrades from CMK (airbrakes, thrust reverser, RAT, cockpit set, mask set). And even more aftermarket, originally meant for the Heller kit - exterior and interior PE (will only use a few exterior pieces- I have the wrong set, for AJ37 interior), Master pitots and a tail+drop tank upgrade. The Maestro set on the left is very low quality resin, the drop tanks, particularly the fins, are atrocious. Kits parts are much better. In fact
  18. Hi! I would like to present my new project. I choosed model of Aero C-3A (Siebel Si204) from czech producer SpecialHobby in 1/48 scale. This will be a very long project because I don't have much free time, but I would like update this topic every week. This will be my first model after five years break. So lets go! With model I bought resin pilot´s seats from CMK and photo etched parts from Eduard (photo etched parts are for model Siebel Si204 so i will use only a few parts).
  19. Hi to everyone. I am Patrik from the Czech Republic and I want to show you my first build here. It is my 4th model after almost 5 year pause from modelling. Some time ago, I've decided to build Mirage F1-AZ. I am using this: Mirage F.1CR made by Special Hobby (Czech producer) Mirage F1-AZ conversion for Hasegawa made by Scaleworx Wheels set made by CMK (Czech producer) Pitot tube made by Master die-cut masks made by Eduard (Czech producer) MAV decals (custom set) I've decided to not use any PE parts since it will be even more time consuming build. Kit itself is nice but requ
