  1. Something from the early years of Flat top aviation. HiPM's 1/48 Vought SB2U Vindicator, or as the MArines liked to call it, The Wind Indicator. A limited run kit,we all know what THAT means, A challenge to say the least. i think I'll do it as the kit suggests and have it stationed Aboard the U.S.S. Ranger and do it in the Pre-war Colours, aluminum, chrome yellow, and green. Here's the break down... This should turn out nice and bright.
  2. Special Hobby is to re-edit the Azur 1/48th Vought V-156F Vindicator "Aeronavale Service" kit under ref. SH 48213 This kit will contain the original Accurate Miniatures SB2U sprues (link) with new plastic wing for French version, new windshield, big PE parts and detailed PUR part. The decals will offer markings for four a/c instead of three as in the Azur boxing.

It is dated 2005 and the well known fault on the fuselage sides were present ,anyone out there who has built this kit ,any advice would be helpful . Also i understand the instructions are not all that clear .
  4. Azur is to re-release the Special Hobby 1/72nd Vought SB2U-1/-2 Vindicator/ V-156B Chesapeake Mk.I http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?%2Ftopic%2F234950627-v-156b-chesapeake-mki-172-special-hobby%2F kit as a V-156F French Aéronavale Vindicator.

  5. Hello, I'm happy to share my completed Azur Vindicator. It's a lovely kit to build, matching original Accurate Miniatures parts with new Azur wings, resin and etch to create a French naval version. It took a little while, with breaks for holidays etc, and the full WIP is here. Hope you enjoy it, and welcome all constructive comments as ever. The last image is also in the WIP, but shows the amount of interior detail on offer, and much stays visible. Take care, Matt
  6. Hello, Been a little while since my last WIP, but this lovely little kit has got me motivated again. It's the Accurate Miniatures Vindicator reboxed by Azur, who supply revised wings for the French version, resin and etch detail and new decals for three 1939/40 Aeronavale options. two are all over light blue-grey, the third having additional blotches of green/brown cammo. Think I may be doing the one on the box. Having read a little about the real plane, it seems it was yet another design that was good for 1936, but way behind the competition by the time it was used in conflict, as both the land-based French attack bomber squadrons, and later US usage in the Pacific proved, at the cost of many crews' lives. It was underpowered, under-armoured, and had poor flight characteristics when fully loaded. The kit is beautifully moulded, full of detail in the large cockpit, and the Azur additions seem to match the original parts well, with a quick tape together showing no issues at the wing/fuselage join at all. The engine is a good place to start, and shows crisp detail, and an ambitious approach to moulding the wiring loom and rods by Accurate Miniatures: However, after a bit of paint and a test fit in the cowling, it feels like the detail is too heavy (although about as good as you might get in plastic) and obscured the engine unrealistically. What to do? Leave it, or scratch build an alternative? Given the fineness of the detail elsewhere, I decided to have a go at scratching it. So, off comes the moulded detail, and the spares box provided a new ring to attach the plastic rod and wire replacement detail to. Just as I was about to start with the wire, and out gardening in the fine weather, I realised the plastic netting I was using to keep cats out of the raised veg beds/luxury cat loo (depends if human or feline...) would be an ideal alternative for the wiring: Hopefully this will work, as its got a nice randomness to the lines and is flexible stuff. given it was about £4 for 20m of the stuff, I've got enough to wire a few thousand engines! More soon, Take care, Matt
  7. Hi My next model in the series "Yellow wings" - Vought SB2U-1 Vindicator, which released Special Hobby. I build this model in the same time as BT-1, and today I finished. The build thread can be found here -> http://www.pwm.org.pl/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=77766 . And photo session with BT-1. Best regards. Jaro
