  1. When all is up in the air, concentrate on something familiar and re-assuring - like a Sea Hawk model! This is the 1/72 Hobby Boss kit, with Modeldecal transfers to correct some anomalies in the kit markings. At least I hope they "correct" ! What a marvelous little kit this is, even allowing for the age of the Airfix one that I am more familiar with. Its only real issue is the intake vane arrangement, which is too prominent. I did cut this one's vanes back, but clearly not far enough. I have 3 more in the stash to build and looking forwa
  2. Hi folks, this is another quick addition to my IAF collection, the old 'n' good Hasegawa kit built OOB except CMK resin wheels and an ordnance taken from my spares box. The decals for 105.sq. machine from Operation 'Kadesh' comes from DP Casper sheet. Cheers Libor
  3. Hobby Boss Sea Hawk straight from the box except for painted Suez stripes as the kit decals didn't fit. Thanks for looking. Steve
  4. Hi all, Here's my latest finished aircraft: Hasegawa's 1/48 Vought F4U-7 Corsair. The decals are by Sky Models and the paint is all Mr Color. The wheels are CMK, the blade aerial is plastic card, and the T-shaped aerial is from Quickboost. More details at https://jonbryon.com/hasegawa-1-48-vought-f4u-7-corsair/.
  5. Airframe Extra No.7 The Suez Crisis Valiant Wings Publishing Continuing with their series of Airframe Extra Books, the latest title Number 7 deals with the first major Post War Conflict to involve the European Powers. It has since been seen by history as the start of then end for the empires. This book is 74 pages in an A4 softcover format. Following the other books of the series it breaks down to sections on History, 47 profiles of aircraft from The RAF, FAA France & Israel; and 7 models of aircraft from the period. The colo
  6. Redux 1/48 Republic F-84F Thunderstreak (RDXENS-1) built as 29029/1-NX from EC.1/1 ‘Corse’ Armee De L’Air masquerading as 200 Tayeset of the Israeli Air Force at Lod in late October/early November 1956 The model was built for a magazine article last autumn but due to an unfortunate shelving collapse this model and most of my work for the past year or so took its first flight earlier this week and so looks even worse now than it does in the images which include a couple on a mirrored base I was experimenting with. The kit parts are those produced originally by Monogram a
  7. A most suitable theme for this Halloween night, with the fog-filled streets around my house filled with ghouls, ghosts, goblins etc etc. This months output from the Gengriz workshops consists of two twin boomers, a spooky Frog Sea Venom of 892 Sqn marking the 60th anniversary of the Suez landings, and a ghostly Heller Vampire from the same era, but farther north with 603 Sqn RAuxAF at Turnhouse/Edinburgh Airport. Both are models I have built before in different guises. The Sea Venom is a Ukrainian re-pop of the old FROG kit, which t
  8. Hi! Anniversary of Operation Musketeer/Mousquetaire/Kadesh/Suez war is approaching and I have been thinking about building one of more colourful aircraft taking part for a start. French F-84Fs and RF-84Fs, with various stripes and squadron badges, fit this description nicely. From gathered material I figured out about the identification stripes (single yellow stripe with black outline until the end of October, yellow-black stripes from 1st November on) and from available articles and books I learned about not so uniformed reality of improvised use of yellow paint on Cyprus, planes wearing bot
  9. There's a topic in another section concerning limited use of Meteor before the VE-day, so - instead of asking there - I'd rather go for a new topic here, as my question concerns limited combat use of RAF Meteor during the Cold War period. As all we know Meteor and Vampire were not only two first British jet fighters, but also two most numerous ones in whole history with Hunter and Venom (a Vampire half-brother BTW) far behind and all others still more exotic. Both (i.e. Meteor and Vampire) were widely exported and their final users didn't hesitate to use them in combat ranging from minor skir
  10. Greetings folks, Long time no post and after 18 months, finally a completed model. My fourth instalment in my Suez/Operation Musketeer series. This is the 1/72 PJ Productions Hawker Hunter F.5, a relatively simply full resin kit, with a small photo etch sheet, white metal landing gear and two vac-form canopies. This is my first resin kit and goes together well, the solid wings simply butt-joint to the fuselage. The instructions said to leave off the link collectors, though some artworks on the web seem to indicate they should be present. 'Tis done now. Paints are my usual Halfords Plast
  11. I've finally finished this one after leaving it almost finished for the last half a year... got a bit burnt out with stripey winged aircraft. It's the last of a group of four 1956 HMS Eagle aircraft I've been working on for a while now. The Wyvern looks like it's in the wrong scale next to the Sea Venom and Sea Hawk though, it almost makes that lump of a Skyraider look dainty! It's the Trumpeter kit... I thought it was ok, but a bit boring to make. The rivet detail isn't so bad under paint, but the rest of the detail is quite clunky and toy like in places. I much preferred their Sea Hawk. I
  12. Just finished this today, first completed build of the year. Italeri 1/72 F4U-7 in French Navy markings from the Suez Crisis. Pretty much built OOB, added brass tube gun barrels as the kit ones were a bit soft, tape belts, nitinol radio wires and made the navigation lights out of clear sprue, a first for me and they came out alright. Painted the stripes and the tricolour on the tail even though they are supplied as decals. The kit decals aren't great and if I made another I would replace them. They are a bit translucent and take forever to loosen from the backing paper. The fit of the rocket
