  1. Hi there! Hope that this one will get more comments than the Wulf. But whatever, here we go. Same target, KISS, Keep It Simple Stupid! It's been started a week or so ago, and I plan to make it a 2020 complete build.
  2. This is the Tamiya 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4, finished in the markings of Oberleutnant Albrecht Drehs, of Stab III/Jagdgeschwader 54 in France, August 1940. Respecting my minimalist approach to modelling, I only performed the following minor enhancements to the kit. A note to fellow modellers in regard to the spinner colours. Hussar suggests a red and white spinner, and while quite attractive, is incorrect. The RAF Crash Report states the spinner is dark green and white. Fuselage - kit seat replaced with Ultracast seat -
  3. This is the Tamiya kit finished in the markings of Feldwebel Walter Scholz, 3/Jagdgeschwader 53 while in France, September 1940. I used Aero Master decals on this one and I feel that the yellow 13's area tad too small and the black outline is not bold enough. But, alas, I did not have any other numbers to chose from, so it is what it is. I have seen this scheme done by others and I am offering my interpretation based on how I see the photos of the real thing. I fell in love with scheme based on the presentation of the swastika and overall finishing of the vertical fin.
  4. Hello Dears, Here we go in the Korean peninsula ... Yes... Once more !! Then, it's the 3rd Mustang out from my Pony's lunacy... If one had an intrerest in the deeds of the Tuskegee Airmen, or in the Career of Col Robin Olds... There's a common point in these two stories...The common point is named Daniel James Jr !! The man has been fully trained as a fighter pilot but war in Europe came to an halt just before he reached the front... Then, he participated in the Korean War, in 12th FBS, 18th FBG, flying the Mustang in a jet war !! I will not tell the w
  5. This was my project for the T-34 STGB. The GB is still going on so, if you are a fan of WW2 Russian armour, it's well worth checking out. I had intended to do a much bigger scene but I haven't had as much time for modelling over the past few months as I would have liked. Kit: Tamiya 1/48 Paints: Humbrol, Revell, Citadel, Vallejo and Railmatch acrylic paints all applied by brush Extras: Vallejo Mud and Snow products, Tamiya figures, Tamiya Road Signs, Redog Resin Stowage, Aluminium foil, string, MDF, mounting board card, filler, Wilkos picture frame, Army paint
  6. Hi all Here is my recently completed Tamiya 1/48 Jagdtiger. It was built OOB with the exception of a set of Aber grills and painted with Tamiya acrylics, oil paint wash and pigments. I also did a little hairspray chipping, but kept the weathering to a minimum on this one. Thanks for looking, Greg
  7. Hello to all, after nearly 8 months of research, sharing and partial scratchbuild from the Tamiya 1/48 kit, I have the pleasure to present you my last baby, the P-51 D-10-NA "Missouri Armada", Capt John B. England, of the 362th F.S, 357th F.G, 8th Air Force: I want to thank here all the contributors and followers without whom I would never have been able to get such a result. Main contributors: - Juan Manuel Villalba: I probably would not have built this replica if Juan had not asked me to do the translation
  8. Did a bit of weathering on this one ,also used a Eduad Zoom set for the cockpit .The decals were the kit ones and are a bit shiney in places
  9. This is my latest build: a Tamiya's 1/48th scale F-14D Tomcat. It's a great kit, with superb fit and smart assembly, i had lot of fun building it! Kit built OOB, with some details from Eduard PE and KA Models exhaust nozzels. Painted with Gunze's Acryl Paint (h-307, H-308, H-337). So, let's start the photogalley: Ciao Ale
  10. I looked at the stash - nestling there minding their own business were a Sturmtiger, a Ferdinand and a King Tiger. Two of them were 1/100, my usual GB armour scale. The other was a massive 1/76 monster. They're not really very Tigerish though. Need something with a bit of heft, some presence, something that captures the essence of how much of a game changing behemoth these things were at the time. Another consideration is finish; my last German armour suffered from a lack of zimmerit and a weedy paint job. No excuses this time. I went with this kit specifically because there is a
  11. Hello All, Normally I only do 1/72 or 1/144 scale stuff and rarely venture beyond this. Even rarer, is a diorama attempt. Tamiya 1/48 King tiger (Porsche Production) figure from the Tamiya Wirblewind kit and a Black dog resin building + a custom made base. Just have to fiddle with getting her to sit properly on the base. Happy Modelling all. Ian
  12. Good evening to all! I'm glad to present my last work, the F-14 A Bu.No. 160390 that killed a Sukhoi-22 during the Gulf of Sidra incident of 1981. Tamiya kit with Aires cockpit (the best cockpit I've ever used as quality of details, the worst as difficulty to put it inside the fuselage) and exhausts, Brassin wheels, Kokopelli ladder, and Furball decals. Finished with Gunze and Alclad paints. Hope you enjoy.... cheers! Valerio from Rome, Italy. Tomcat END 10 by Valerio, su Flickr Tomcat END 1 by Valerio, su Flickr Tomcat
  13. Hope you’ve all enjoyed the first Formula 1 GP for 2019. Just before the race started I took some proper photos of my most recent kit completion, which unlike the other three builds I’d been working on has thankfully made it this far. Long story short, a group of four like minded modelling mates decided that we all needed to clear the cobwebs a bit and motivate each other to get a kit completed. We decided to build similar kits and chose Tamiya’s still quite serviceable 1/48 P-51 Mustang (3 x P-51D’s and 1 x B). We started the kits together on the same day and sent each other text
  14. I have noticed many Pz IV H's in quarter-scale in this GB, but not found any J's yet, so having one in the stash, I figured I may as well resolve that apparent oversight. This is Tamiya's older moulding, with the die-cast lower hull. Just a placeholder post at the moment, work will commence once the Matilda has been finished over in KUTA XI
  15. Hello all; Here's my finished Jug for your perusal. I made about as many mistakes and miscalculations as it's possible to make in painting and marking this one. The full story and many more pictures of the debacle(!) can be found within the build article on my website. It's build as a workhorse of the 365th Fighter Bomber Group and was intended to be weathered as such. Overall I think it turned out ok as a reasonable representation of my subject and my ability. Some of it I'm really happy with and some of it I just decided I would have live with because I couldn't
  16. Late to the field, but with a nice compact build that should be fairly quick. I'll be building an A12 Matilda II CS of the Australian 2/4 armoured. Based on this picture found with a quick web search; Box shot And sprue shot Not shown here, because it's still on the way from Parabellum, is the Gasoline Matilda Frog conversion kit that I will be raiding the turret collar, tracks and brush guards etc from. I also think I have RB models Besa barrels in the stash, if so I will be using one in this build as well. Work has commenced, mor
  17. Hi all, I thought i'd share my latest project with you all which is this. I'll also be using the Hauler p/e set to replace various parts. First things to go were the running boards. Which were replaced with p/e ones. Also I cut off the moulded on detail off the bonnet and replaced that with p/e. The plastic steps on the rear mud guards, tool clips and number plates were also binned to make way for p/e ones. The hand cranks were made up with brass rod and tube. At the front end I used brass rod for the width indicators, added some wiring to the lights and
  18. my first attemp at posting a picture, Been a member for quite awhile, but because i am a ham fisted tecno phob (favorate tool, large hammer) hav'nt been able to work out how to post a picture, so fingers crossed. Like many I suspect I model in isolation, mainly due to workload, I would feel a fraud if I joined a club as I would not be able to commit to contribute much in the way of time to help with shows etc. This forum has provided much inspiration, and I have learnt a great deal from all the contributors, so here go's!! tamiya mustang by peter crossman, on Flickr
  19. I'm going to throw my hat into the ring with the tamiya 1/48 razor back kit, i'll be doing a bare metal finish, its the silverlady of the 56th fg, flown by witold lanowski, i believe it was the fighter groups flagship, seen here as I'll be depicting her in d day livery, I'll crack on. Glynn
  20. The quickest and the most boring kit in my over 30 years plastic career. Building almost from box except Yahu cockpit panel (for Eduard kit) and Master Barrels.
  21. With two builds ongoing over in the M3/M4 STGB, it may seem foolish to start another GB, however there is reason to my madness which I shall explain later. In the meantime, here is my choice of kit for this GB Sprue shots A short while later, after putting children to bed, I had this. Typical Tamiya quality, shake and bake. I have no idea why Tamiya chose not to add a gearbox housing to the lower hull, I may have to get one from Ian over at Friendship models. And my reason for starting another build. I was asked over in my Op Hu
  22. Me asking questions again ,i have 4 of said kits ,i have some Finnish Air force Decals for one . The other 3 will be an RAF far East ,aircraft ,a Dutch and a US Naval one .Got 2 sets of PE ,one for the cockpits of the RAF and the Finnish one's . The other 2 i had started OOB and can't get the cockpit items off . Anyway, was there much difference between the RAF ,Dutch and Finnish Aircraft ? I can see that there was some difference to the US Naval one regards the rear cockpit area . Also did they all carry bombs ? Would like to block the holes on the bottom wings where
  23. hi everybody! happy to join this tank GB! new to AFM, but sticking to 1/48 Sherman M4 early production (welded hull) Tamiya 1/48 that is what I have so far, also order a RB barrel and M2 MG improvement set..... started with the metal hull, gives nice weight (a tank after all, not an airplane!!) but is a bit strange to work with! T(h)anks for all kind of comments, espcially help! I will need it! markings
  24. The Spitfire Mk.Vb Trop project is done. The subject aircraft is the T*M EP340 belonging to 249sqn stationed on Ta' Qali (Takali), Malta in 1942. The recorded highlight for this aircraft has been a sortie on 13th of October 1942 where the Canadian ace pilot John McElroy has managed to shoot down a Bf-109 and a Re.2001. Two days later, on 15th of October 1942, this particular aircraft - piloted by the Australian pilot Edwin Hiskens - was shot down by the German ace pilot Marian Mazurek. The loss of the T*M EP340 has been recorded as 'missing over sea', status of the Australian pilot
