  1. I will be resurrecting this build from last year's Maritime Patrol GB I got hung up with the weapons bay and figuring out how to hang the doors. Still some external details to add like the weapon pylons and various sensors.
  2. Welsh Models has just released a 1/72nd Boeing P-8 Poseidon MRA.1 RAF kit with vac formed fuselage, all other parts in resin - ref. MT72-20 Source: http://www.welshmodels.co.uk/MT72-20.html V.P.

  4. Good evening ladies and gentlemen, I have sadly been rather busy and lost a little enthusiasm for modelling the past month. Partly that's also because I have lost my big lever arch binder full of decals which contains the sheet of swastikas I need to finish my Stuka WIP. It's here somewhere, but I am suffering from man-vision where things sat right in front of me are invisible. Anyway, I went to the Aberdeen Modellers' Society meet on Tuesday as I try to do every month since I restarted going, and spotted this little white box sat in a pile of unloved kits. Wh
  5. The Andover C.1 was a regular aircraft to be seen in my military days and I would like to build one in 1:144 scale for the Hawker-Siddeley GB. The problem is that I only have Welsh Model's Andover CC.2 version and cannot afford the outlay for their modern, resin/vacform C.1 version. My thoughts are pondering on doing a conversion of this Queen's Flight CC.2 kit to a brown/tan/black C.1 transport version. I have one diagram which shows the port side profiles but could do with more detailed plans or g.a. drawings. Can anyone help please? cheers Mike
  6. With nearly two months to go, I thought that I would make a start on a final model for this GB. My choice of subject is this little 1/144 Welsh Models Heron 1 and here are the obligatory box and contents shots before I get started. After giving the parts a wash in some warm soapy water, the next job will be to separate them from the pouring lugs.
  7. I completed this Welsh Models Heron for the de Havilland Mega GB a few weeks ago, but because i) I hadn't lightened the fuselage enough and then ii) I didn't add enough weight it ended up being a tail sitter. My intention had been to add the model to a base but I didn't complete that in time for the end of the group build. I finished the base last night and thought that I would share my efforts of how it should have looked here. First up a photo from last night And here are some that I took outside this morning.
  8. Fokker F.27, Air Anglia Welsh Models 1:144 Vacform The F.27 was Fokkers very successful entry to the twin turboprop regional airliner market, first flying in 1955. Very few remain in service,, but it had a long and varied career with a wide range of operators The Welsh Models vacform is one of my favourite kits, this one being my third to be completed. The Air Angliadecals come with the kit and are designed & produced by Twosix decals and performed beautifully. There is no white printing on them so the 'Air Anglia' titles are clear printed in the black area. The bottom of the fuse
  9. My first Vac-Form kit I have build.And only for the reason that it is the only Boeing 747SP kit available,except the resin kit from Authentic Airliners. The build was challenging as I had no experience with Vac-Form kits,but I managed to get it eventually together. While working on this kit for almost 1 year,I came up with the idea to make an In-Flight diaorma,which I thought would be a nice way of displaying it. For my first ever Boeing 747SP I wanted a special and nice scheme,I had Air Mauritius,South African Airways and Air Namibia in my mind. Air Mauritius
  10. Just a placeholder for the moment because I am waiting for the kit to arrive for this build. It was due to be despatched on Monday so I am expecting it any day now, I will post photos just as soon as I can I have wanted to make a model of this very sleek looking aircraft for a while now after spotting it on a display of models representing aircraft used by British Airways/BOAC/Imperial Airways at Scale Modelworld a few years ago. I thought that it would be a nice addition to this group build and set about finding a suitable kit. A brief, but fascinating, history can be
  11. Airspeed AS57 Ambassador 1:144 Welsh Models I've always wanted an Ambassador in my airliner collection, it is such a gracefull looking aitcraft. It is harldly likely to ever be issued as an injection moulded kit, so thank goodness Welsh Models have provided a vac-form kit. It is a fair bit of work to cut out and prepare all parts, but it goes together quite well. This one has been on the bench for over 2 years now, mainly because I dithered about what scheme to finish it in. I really wanted to do it in the early BEA scheme but could not track down a decal sheet, and Den
  12. Greetings all, This is the Welsh Models 1/144 MD-11 vacform with Delta Airlines late 1990's livery laser decals by 26decals. Build thread here. Relatively straightforward, though the build up of the wing mounted engines from bits of vacform and resin was tedious and slow work. Because the decals are laser printed on clear film, the Delta writing on the centre engine is clear and results in a very large blue decal to wrap around the centre engine. My first attempt didn't go well, so a huge thanks to Ray at 26decals for supplying a replacement set. Pain
  13. Happy New Year all! I'm going to start the New Year with a brave and possibly vane work in progress of the Welsh Models vacform 1/144 McDonnell Douglas MD-11. My last attempt at a WIP ended in disaster and the kit being binned. And work often interferes in my modelling time so if you're really interested in what is likely to be long-haul I would advise subscribing! Excuses done, I thought it might be good to start with what a Welsh Models kit looks like. Because these are vacforms, the boxes are surprisingly large, yet quite thin: Inside there are two large va
  14. Hello Everyone! When I found out that a new Airliner Group build had been organised and was about to start, I started thinking about what to build. The last GB project involved a major cut and shut to bash a Beluga and A340 into an A300-600 which was moderately successful, despite a very stubborn seam at the wing fairing joint Although it didn't make it to the finish line, it's still inching toward completion. Every now and then I work on it, the decals are on but no engines or landing gear are installed. Anyway that's history; shifting through the stash looking for inspiration and something
  15. Does anyone know the fuselage diameters for the Herald and the Andover/HS748? I just had one of those ideas for taking the rear fuselage off the Welsh Models Andover and putting it on the Welsh Models Herald, with no doubt some other modifications to the tail feathers. I know the Herald had a wider fuselage than the Friendship, and I suspect that the HS748's was also narrower, but would that be sufficient to be seen (or to make x-kitting unworkable) in 1/144? After all, the Herald was the favoured choice for the job on technical/operational grounds, but (as always) other features
  16. I've had this one sitting around half finished for much too long. Finally I took the bit in my teeth, knuckled down and finished it. It's the Welsh Models kit straight out of the bag. The fuselage is the basic standard Welsh Convair 440/540 fuselage so the door outlines don't match the decals. I found that out too late. It's something I'll have to keep in mind when I do the 1/72 kit later on.
  17. Greetings folks, Another one saved from the shelf of doom, however, I still wonder if it was worth saving - does it look like an MD-90 to you? This is the Welsh Models conversion for the Minicraft MD-80 kit. The conversion includes a replacement vacform fuselage and a pair of resin engines. The fuselage nose is a poor representation of an MD-80/90 and so as recommended by N5016R, I chopped the nose off and used the Minicraft kit nose. For all that effort, I might as well have just extended the kit fuselage, sigh. Then the resin engines, err, look nothing like IAE V2500 engines, sigh.
  18. Handley Page Hermes IV BOAC, early 1950s This was from the Welsh Models 1/144 kit – vac form fuselage / resin wings & tailplane / white metal undercarriage. I started off my Hermes project using the FRsin kit because I wanted BOAC markings which Welsh Models don’t do, but I gave up on that. The FRsin fuselage is a large, solid resin moulding and in my kit the resin had not cured properly, this resulting in the resin bubbling up through 4 or 5 layers of Halfords white primer & appliance white. So thank you Denzil at Welsh Models for producing a very usable kit on which I u
  19. Here is my representation of Court Line’s second Tristar, G-BAAB. I used the Welsh Models kit with 26 Decals supplemented with bits and pieces from the Nazca detail sheet. The light pink is Tamiya TS-25 and the salmon pink for the lower surfaces was custom mixed to RAL 3017. White is Halfords Appliance White apart from the belly stripe which is a double layer of white decal. Natural metal is various Revell and Tamiya acrylics. Building the kit was easy and straightforward although for some reason I got a bit bored half way through and the partly-built Tristar spent about a year looki
  20. This should be my third, and final, entry for the group build. Being a glutton for punishment I have decided to attempt a vacform kit and will attempt to build the Fairey Gannet AEW Mk.3 by Welsh Models. Mike
  21. Finished this one yesterday, the rarely modelled HP Herald. It is the Welsh Models Vacform kit with resin engines and white metal undercarriage. I used my usual method of a keel in the fuselage halves rather than transverse bulkheads, it is so much easier and stronger too. Ther are a few things to watch for if you are building this kit. 1) The resin engines attach to a 'plinth' moulded on the underside of each wing. I attached mine nice and precisely, but something didn't look right when I dry fitted it on the fuselage, the starboard engine was off the centreline with the front being furth
  22. You don't see too many of these, either as the 1:72 Airfix kit or this 1:144 Welsh Models Vac-form. I remember building the Aifix kit in this scheme as a kid, with opening front doors that you could load matchbox cars into. This one of the sligthly more difficult Welsh vac's to build, but the mouldings were very good indeed, hats off to the guy who made the masters. It was a slow but enjoyable build, and a pretty rare addition to my collection. It is not very big, the picture below is close to full size. With its recently completed freighter companion! A few not
  23. Last completed build of 2012. Kit picked up at Telford and decals from TwoSix Decals. Cambrian DC-3s bring back fond memories of the early 60s at Lulsgate Airport (now Bristol International). The decals are aimed at the Minicraft kit and needed some adaptation and use of paint, particularly around the nose. First build of a resin and white metal kit.

Forgot to sand down the cargo door hi
  24. This is the Welsh Models 1/144 resin kit. It was a bit of a struggle to fill the gaps, as may be seen in my build thread in the Airliners II Group Build. I'm not terribly happy with the propellers; they're very roughly cast and full of pits. I built it straight out of the box except for the VOR antenna above the cockpit, which was made from plastic scraps, and I replaced the landing gear doors because the metal ones were too thick.
