  1. Source: https://www.zoukeimura.co.jp/sentiment/oyajiblog_134.html Zoukei-Mura 1/32nd projects for the coming years. Guess the types. P-51A/B Mustang or A-36 Apache and T-28 Trojan? V.P.
  2. I'm looking to do either a Farmgate or VNAF T-28B. I'm considering the Roden T-28D kit because it includes the weapons, pylons and gun pods. The T-28Ds had three weapons pylons plus a streamlined gun pod on each wing. The B/Cs had had a larger underwing pod and only two weapons pylons on each wing. I believe the pylons were the same as the later D but the spacing looks different. The Roden T-28D kit has the all the right parts for B/C but the drill outs in the lower wing are for the D models. Does anyone have a photo or reference that clearly shows the weapon pylon spacing on the early Vietnam B/Cs? Thanks in advance Ron
  3. The Black Monster is done and off the bench. It was such a MOJO sucking build that I felt overwhelmed when I scanned the stash. I was looking for a build that will go faster and smoother and hopfully better matches my skills so a good outcome can be reached. I hope the Roden T-28B will fit the bill. The model looks nice, part count is good and the subject interesting. This is my first Roden, so I'm not in for a surprise. Some box and sprue images: I will be building the Marines version - I like the colors and do not fancy an all Yellow version. It's gonna be my first experience with an almost all white. Ran

  6. Well seeing as I'm co-hosting I thought I had better declare my intention build wise for what promises to be another very popular and very enjoyable GB. As I mentioned in Dennis' ( @Corsairfoxfouruncle ) Bird Dog thread I have had an interest in the secret war in Laos ever since reading a truly fantastic book called "The Ravens" by Christoper Robbins which tells the tale of a group of American airmen and CIA operators who fought against overwhelming odds to support the local Hmong population in their struggle against the Pathet Lao and the North Vietnamese using nothing more than light aircraft and helicopters with the hottest ship available to them being the T-28. Armed with machine guns, rockets and bombs these armed trainers waged their own war against the fairly sophisticated weapons of the North Vietnamese, and not without success either. As it stands at the minute I am unsure as whether to build a T-28 flown by the Ravens or by the best pilot the Laotians had, a Hmong pilot by the name of Lee Lue who had an uncanny ability to place ordnance with pin point accuracy and had to show the USAF fast movers how to do things on several occasions when they had whizzed over a target in their multi million Dollar hi tech aircraft and missed the target and the Lee Lue would come along and roll his little T-28 into a dive pickle off one bomb and flatten the target. On to the kit. I will be building Roden's 1/48 T-28D Trojan which was released a few years ago and seems to be nicely moulded and perfectly adequately detailed for me, it actually comes with markings for the 606th Special Operations Squadron of the USAF based at Nakhom Phanom in Thailand used over "the trail" in the late 60's but I will leave that for someone else to build. Anyway here are the obligatory box and contents shots; The contents; The kit options; I do like the idea of that CIA one from the Congo but that is for another GB. My laptop is currently moving at the pace of an asthmatic snail with heavy shopping so updates might be a while in coming but don't worry I am really looking forward to getting started on this one as I have been wanting to do it for a long time. Thanks for looking in and as usual all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Craig.
  7. T-28 was the main soviet medium tank of the pre-WWII era. It has no bright victories to speak of, but gained some success during the Soviet-Finland war. It is mainly known for been the only production 3-turret tank with more than 500 units built. Very nice Trumpeter kit. I used NO putty at all. Painted with Vallejo acrylics (4BO main color). The only addition was the photoetched gunsight for the anti-aircraft machine-gun on the main turret. And I made lens for the headlights from scratch. Next Trumpeter T-28 kit (this time with conical main turret) waits to be assembled. And compared to Pz.kpfw.1 Ausf.A Thanks for viewing!
  8. So the longest project finally finished. Quality of model itself as usually Hobby Boss or Trumpeter. I'm sure I've made some mistake and missed few things, but by the end it is only piece of plastic, isn't it?
  9. Soviet T-28 Medium Tank (Welded) 1:72 Trumpeter The T-28 was a Soviet medium tank, not dissimilar to the larger T-35. It suffered from many of the same problems as the T-35 , such as an unreliable engine & transmission, being under-armoured, and poor, out-dated suspension. The tank had a main turret lifted directly from the T-35, and two small machine–gun turrets from the T-26. The main gun was a hefty 76mm cannon, which was later upgraded to a more effective longer barrelled unit. After the initial poor showing in the Winter War against Finland, the armour was upgraded by adding appliqué panels. By 1940 the tank was hopelessly outdated and overshadowed by the new T-34, as well as enemy tanks such as the Panzer IV. As we saw with their recent T-80B, Trumpeter are once again releasing all-new AFV kits in 1:72 scale. Following on from the blueprint set by their most recent kits (and those released by sister company Hobbyboss), the kit makes extensive use of slide moulding in order to reduce the part count to a minimum while preserving detail. This is evident from the wheels and tracks, which are moulded as a single part. While compromises clearly have to be made in order to mould something like this, I still find it preferable to horrible rubber band tracks that are impossible to fix in place. Construction starts with the lower hull. This part is moulded as a single tub, on to which the return rollers and tow eyes have to be added. The inner run of road wheels, drive sprockets and idlers, along with the tracks, are all moulded as a single part. These have to be added to the lower hull, after which the individual outer road wheels, drive sprockets and idlers can be fitted. The upper hull (again, a single part), can be added next, along with the engine cover, stowage boxes and various details such as spare road wheels. The two small machine gun turrets are each comprised just four parts, including individually moulded machine guns. The main turret is only a little more complex, but includes a nicely rendered railing and a commander's cupola that is moulded separately from the rest of the turret. The stubby main gun is moulded as a solid part with a hollow muzzle thanks to the use of a multi-part mould. The small decal sheet provides three marking options, but none of them are identified as individual tanks. Conclusion This is a decent little kit that does a good job of balancing ease of construction with quality of finish. While the low part count means some compromises have been made, they are not as noticeable as you might think, and the overall level of detail compares pretty well to other manufacturers operating in this scale. Trumpeter are to be congratulated on producing a mainstream kit of this tank. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of UK Distributors for
  10. Continuing the theme set by Paul's last post... old military passing through the UK, here are three T-28s (ex-Zaire AF) that passed through Biggin Hill in 1978. As you can see, a mix of T-28B and C models. Most if not all are still alive and flying in the US. Martin
  11. Hi all T-28 from Hobbyboss, 1/35. OOB The model is made for the customer. Cheers Martin
  12. These T-28Bs were on the transient ramp at Nellis AFB in March 1981... BuNo 140046 BuNo 137641 BuNo 138122 BuNo 138247, note the Rear Admiral's one-star flag beneath the cockpit They certainly made a different kind of roar in the overhead pattern when you were used to A-10s, F-4s, F-15s, and F-16s! Thanks for looking, Sven
  13. Another model completed. I enjoyed doing it and that's why I want to share this pleasure with you. Here's the picture.
  14. My latest build, a 1/72 Heller T-28 converted to AT-28D of 15th Strike Wing of Philippine Airforce. Cockpit and canopy was from Pavla, cut and scratched build the airbrake; cut and reposition the flaps; added blade, whip antennae and red anti collision light on the rear fuselage; removed and filled the airscoop in the front fuselage; scratched build the gunpods and pylons. LAU-68 from Italeri's Huey kit and Mk-82 from Hasegawa's Aircraft Weapons 1. Decals are from Blue Diamond Decals. Thanks for looking.

  16. Having only built one kit last year, due to major back problems and the onset of depression I was determined to build more this year. Well, here's the first build, the Hobbyboss Russian T-28 medium tank. I still have some weathering to do, once I've decided what base she is to go on, but it certainly helped get some of my mojo back. I did use Friulmodel tracks, as didn't like th ekit links.

  18. NA T-28 Trojan Detail sets 1:48 Aires and Quickboost Aires have recently released these three sets just for the Roden kit. Once removed from their casting blocks it looks as though they are drop in direct replacements although the modeller may need to thin the kit parts to get the bays to fit snugly. Plenty of dry fitting is recommended to get then to sit correctly. The Aires Wheel Bay set (4584) comes in the standard blown plastic box on a cardboard sleeve. Protected against most damage by a foam insert there are the three replacement bays, each beautifully rendered with lots of extra detail when compared with the kit parts. Each bay has the casting block on the top face which will need to be sanded down to fit, particularly inside the wings. Additional detail is provided on a separate block and includes extra piping, replacement undercarriage parts, such as actuators, links etc. All the bay doors are also provided as direct replacements giving a very fine edge, yet with nicely moulded structures on the inner faces. Beware though that the parts are very fragile and even though protected, some parts have still broken away from the blocks, such are the fineness of the connecting points. Quickboost Exhaust and Cooling Grill set (QB 48 523), is exactly that, finely moulded in grey resin the three grills, (more commonly known as cowl flaps), and two exhausts are contained in thin poly sleeve, but protected by the large ends of the casting block. The trailing edges of the flaps are super fine, giving a much nicer scale look to the items when mounted on the kit. The same can be said of the exhausts, the three pipes per mount are hollow enough to provide a much more refined look. Quickboost Control Lever and Rudder Pedal set (QB 48 513), provides, surprisingly, new rudder pedals and control levers, (joysticks). The control levers are super fine and great care will need to be exercised when removing them from the casting block and also removing the thin resin web that runs from top to base. The rudder pedals don’t look to be as bad to remove, but they are ultra thin, so much so you can see through them when held to the light. When using this set it may be wise to leave the joysticks till last as they will be the first thing to break when the cockpit is being manipulated. Conclusion These are three good looking and very nicely detailed sets to enhance the Roden Trojan. If you get nothing else for the kit, you really need wheel bay set. But if you want a great looking model of the T-28 then the finesse given by these sets will really give that additional detail that can lift a model. Highly recommended.
