  1. Despite the recent release of the Italeri's Sunderland Mk.I (review: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=234927542), the Special Hobby Short Sunderland Mk.V project seems going on. Some CAD drawings are proposed in ModelForum: http://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=97&p=1362198#p1362198 Future kit reference is SH72162. Wait and see. V.P.
  2. Hi, Next model this year - Short Sunderland Mk I. This is fameous N9029, which was involved in (following Valka.cz web page) 28.7.1940: dogfight with two CR.42 near Malta (surived). 28.3.1941: NM-V captained by F/Lt A.M.G.Lywood, reported Italian fleet movements leading to the Battle of Cape Matapan. 16.4.1941: evacuation of 'very important persons' including King Peter of Yugoslavia. May 1941: evacuation of British and Greek troops from Crete. 1.1.1943: aircraft failed to return from anti-submarine mission, crew of F/O H.Holcombe was missing. The discussion of painting sc
  3. Italeri 1/72 Short Sunderland MkIII, always wanted to build one of these. Nice kit, unfortunately the painting didn't go according to plan, initially started with Tamiya Flat White which thinned with Levelling Thinners lays perfectly, but ran out part way through and finished with Revell Aqua White. What a mistake that was. Totally ruined the finish.. spent days trying to sand it back and find the motivation to finish it, but it never really came back, then topped off with Ultimate Weathering Wash sticking to the gloss surface despite being fully cured and smooth. Haven't added sev
  4. Hi All Here is my entry to this GB An old Airfix Sunderland in a battered box due to laying around my stash for over 30 years The kit decals are beyond help but I have replacements . Hope to start new Years Day Martin H
  5. Any chance of the above mentioned kits? I know AModel announced the Lincoln maybe 10 years ago, but nothing came of it. It would be nice to have the military Sunderland and civilian Sandringham as well as the Shackleton in 1/144 as well.
  6. The deadline is OK for me so I hope I would be able to finish this one in time. Anyway I have to build this model before Special Hobby comes with their one so a good excuse. The box art is great, really impressive. The box is not that great as it is very difficult to smuggle home - and you can’t use the popular sentence "oh no darling, not a new kit, I have had this one for ages…" The Eduard masks and Zoom set has been ordered for this beast. And (no surprise here) it will be the Dakar Aeronavale option.
  7. Hi folk's I know this kit is older than me but it was a kit that sat high up on the shelves in the model shop when I was a kid out of reach and out of my budget,so it's about time I built one.I know it's far too long in the tooth with it's rivett's and moving parts but for twelve quid I could'nt resist.I'm doing an OOB build with only a tinker here and there especially the cockpit but more later. Boxing is a Humbrol era gray molding. Quite a large kit when built and the rivett's were not as bad as I expected,decal's OK. Glazing OK shame the cock
  8. About thirty five years ago while looking around a model kit trader's tent at the RAF Finningley airshow I picked up a small box with a very comical painting of a banana-shaped Sunderland on the front. The box looked like it should contain a jig saw puzzle or chocolates instead of a model kit. I was amazed though when I opened the box, inside was a miniature replica almost piece for piece of the AIRFIX Sunderland moulded in a hard silver grey plastic. The manufacturer was a Hong Kong company named Kader. In the intervening years I have come across a number of other Kader models which seem
  9. ML824 at the RAF Museum Hendon. Built as a Mk.III in belfast in 1944 it was then brought up to Mk.IV standard before leaving. ML824 made 11 operational flights with No.201 Squadron at Castle Archdale, Northern Ireland; totalling 127 hours 20 minutes, comprising ten anti U-Boat patrols and one convoy patrol. She was transferred to The Aeronavale in 1951, serving mainly in West Africa. The French presented the aircraft to the Short Sunderland Trust in 1961 and was displayed in Pembroke Dock. The aircraft was handed over to the RAF Museum in 1968. The aircraft is now on display with the public al

  11. Apologies in advance if these should be their own individual categories and will adapt if so. Here are a selection of my builds involving Flying Boats and Float Planes since restarting model-making a few years back after a break of around 35 years. 1/72 Airfix Junkers Ju52/3m finished as a WHIF, used by the Regia Aeronautica on Rhodes in late 1940 OOB Build. (I had posted this previously in a Junkers thread but seemed appropriate to include it here as well as it has floats! ) 1/72 Airfix Short Sunderland III with Wrapround Camouflage. OOB Build with slight scratch cockpit. Roundels
  12. Photo Etch Details for the Italeri Sunderland Mk.III 1:72 Eduard Having built the Italeri Sunderland I, I was very impressed with the kit on the whole, bar perhaps the excessive panel lines which needed some work to tone down. The detail is pretty good, but Eduard being Eduard have released several sets to enhance the new Mk.III kit further. These sets aim to provide both internal and external enhancements as we'll see. Set 72583 Sunderland Mk.III Bomb Racks The Sunderland had a somewhat unusual arrangement for stowing the bombs. A pair of lifting beams locating within the wing s

  15. Eduard Photo Etch detail sets for Italeri Sunderland 1:72 Eduard Italeri's Sunderland Mk.I was greeting with great excitement when it was announced last year. Although the treatment of surface details was surprisingly heavy handed, the kit was generally well received. Now Eduard have released a tranche of photo etch detail sets aimed at pushing an already detailed kit a step further. Sunderland Mk.I Interior (Self Adhesive) 1:72 Eduard This set caters for the kits interior, with a natural focus on the cockpit area. The first fret is comprised mainly of pre-painted self-adhesive
  16. Pavla have been busy working on improving the new(ish) Italeri Sunderland, and are releasing these sets shortly. We'll have some review samples for you soon, but just to whet your appetites: C 72115 Sunderland Mk.I For Italeri U 72-142 Sunderland Mk.I engine cowlings For Italeri U 72-143 Sunderland Mk.I propellers For Italeri U 72-144 Sunderland Mk.I propeller spinners For Italeri There's also a code V 72-103 with no photo, so I'm guessing that's a maxi-pack of all the above. I could well be wrong though - it happens

  18. Italeri Sunderland After a month or so on the bench, it's finally, well almost complete bar the astrodone and arial wire. The main challenge initially was the heavy panel lines, but plenty of primer and regualr rubbing down has tones them down quite a bit, I'm certainly happy with them, although it will be personal taste I guess. These things suffered a lot of weathering, so I wanted to capture some of this to bring out it's character. As you can see from the picture above of the aircraft I modelled, I've been rather reserved on the paint chipping along the hull and leading edg
