  1. It seems I've been running my own private KUTA build for some reason, with the J-22 that stalled during the summer, the (also Swedish) Tunnan, and my long-standing Tactical Pod Regult builds all seeing some action over Christmas and the New Year. It's been nice doing some modelling again, but BOY have I gotten rusty! This is the excellent Planet Models 1:48 FFVS J-22A fighter, which most folks including me have probably never even heard of! It kind of looks like a Swedish take on the Fw.190 after a fashion. It's pretty much out of the box except for the gunsight, whic
  2. For several years I searched for the kit of the HMS Västergötland and finally found one. But I needed two to be able to convert one to the extended submarine as well. Considering how difficult it was to find a kit, I had no great hope of finding a second one so I tried to make a silicone mold of the bow and aft and trying to scratch build the rest. A plastic tube was mounted between the polyester castings and Magic Sculp was used to build up the hull. One year later I was lucky enough to get a second kit so the project started was scrapped and the new
  3. JAS-39A/C Gripen 1:48 Kitty Hawk The Gripen was a name chosen by the people of Sweden for the replacement for the much loved Viggen and Draken from the deep Cold War era. It was decided that the aircraft should be capable of air-to-air, air-to-ground and reconnaissance missions, which in Swedish gave rise to the JAS acronym. It took 9 years from initialisation of the development studies in 1979 to the first flight of the Gripen, but after a couple of crashes early on, the programme was slowed down significantly while kinks in the fly-by-wire system were ironed out, resulting in a
  4. After the badly researched (kit-wise) false start to an attempt at a Hurricane, this should be my entry for the GB. Decals have been ordered depicting a Gladiator Mk.1 “10” Fighter wing F8 2nd Div. I should be ok for a kit this time, I have the Airfix Gladiator Mk.1 and the HobbyBoss easy assembly job. Which to go for. The HobbyBoss looks very easy and doesn’t seem too bad detail wise, the Airfix kit looks good and has indents for the wiring and a decent wiring diagram. I’ll mull that over a glass or two of something this evening and then commit tomorrow - box and sprue shots to follow o
  5. I will join this GB if I may with an AZ Models P-51B in Foreign Service. Its a limited run kit with the usual issues which probably means I am going to make a bit of a mess of it ;-) The kit: http:// http:// All three options look very colourful but I am thinking of going for the Swedish ex 356th FG plane. I have always have a soft spot for Swedish markings. Doing a bit of research I came across the following webpage which sets out the background to Swedish Mustangs much better that I could. NB the first picture is of the plane I a
  6. Heller Lansen kit with the fighter conversion from Maestro Hobby. The target towing equipment is scratch built. The target tugs started out with the day glo checker pattern but it changed later. So I have to build an second one. Building of it: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235007648-saab-j-32b-lansen-target-tug/
  7. Hi All Thought I would share some photos of a recently finished model which had the unusual difference for me of being a What-If inspired aircraft. I should really do more of these RFI posts as they are nice to show off work, and in this case could possibly offer some ideas about different schemes to try than the usual, but for the most part I simply forget to do so! Here goes with a back story - amazing how you can get carried away writing these! SAAB JAS 41A "Falk" No. 255, Flygvapnet (Swedish Air Force), 1994 During the 1980's, the Flygvapnet (Swedish Air Force) required a r
  8. First finished model of the year and it's only half way through Based on the Revell Hawker Hunter F.6 kit modified to represent a Swedish Air Force J34 late in their service.
  9. During the WWII the Swedish airline ABA continued its international flights with planes painted in striking orange.Björn Bäcklund has built, rescribed, slightly modified, cut his own masks and used a lot of orange color on a Monogram DC-3: The orange color and Swedish markings didn't keep the plane from being shot down in 1943. Björn presents the build here: http://www.ipmsstockholm.se/home/148-aba-douglas-dc-3-gladan/ Lars Befring for IPMS-Stockholm
  10. This time Björn brings us his build of a Ju 52: and tells the story about why the Tante has two different engines and what he did to convert from a Mädchen to a Swedish Girl the story can be found here: http://www.ipmsstockholm.se/home/148-junkers-ju52-ab-aerotransport/ /Lars Befring for IPMS-Stockholm
  11. Been looking around without any results for a set of decals covering the Swedish Hunter J-34 in 72nd scale. Anyone know of a set? Alas I've nothing in the spare decal box that will cover either national insignia or unit badges
  12. As above really, anybody know whats in the box? Is the kit and decals OK or should I avoid it http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/J-26-EARLY-P-51-B-MUSTANG-SWEDISH-AF-1-72-MASTERCRAFT-LIMITED-EDITION-saab-/360501260122?pt=UK_ToysGames_ModelKits_ModelKits_JN&hash=item53ef8caf5a Cheers Chris
