  1. Hello ! My new AFV Club's 88mm with Stalingrad miniatures figures See you ! Fabrice
  2. Hi ! I had promised you informations on my friend Basket... I take advantage of the opening of this topic to keep my word This dear friend lives therefore a small mediterranean village called Marseille. Rémy (his real name) is indeed a true anglophile, but of an anglophilia which makes useless the existence of the worst anglophobes. Let me explain This excellent friend draws most of his knowledge of England from the repeated vision of "Little Britain" and has identified himself surprisingly with Miss Howard (the Emily Howard her/himself), a curious and unique case
  3. I originally made a start on this build about 8-10 years ago and got as far as building most of the lower hull, but then I discovered to my horror that the hull tub was warped and there was no chance of fixing it with all of those parts glued in place. Fast forward a couple of years, and I was at Telford and on one of the stands, someone was selling off some kits cheap which had belonged to a modeller who had sadly died. Among them was the AFV Club, Aussie Mk.V.1 for the princely sum of £15 (there was also a Dragon Conquerer for the same price, and I’m still kicking myself fo
  4. Hello everyone Another Tiger from AFV Club , this time the F version. Colors are Gunze and decals are Print Scale 48-113 (IRIAF F-5) The model actually is still incompleted because the seats should be changed with the MB ones. Hope you enjoy. Barzin. The completed family The real thing:
  5. Over the last few months I’ve managed to get three shelf sitters over the finish line so thought I’d continue my efforts into 2020. I started building this one when my son was 2, he’s about to turn 10. It’s the AFV Club RF-5E which I’m painting up to represent a TUDM (Tentera Udara Diraja Malaysia or Royal Malaysian Air Force) aircraft. I’ve taken the FS numbers supplied in the instructions and pulled them out of my gunze paint stocks. Compared to some reference photos that I have they are a pretty close match. It’s also the first time I’ve tried by hand at a freehand c
  6. Hi, My first thread here in Britmodeller will be a model I've been building for a while now. It's AFV Club's LVT-4 Early version with few extras such as Voyager basic set, Eduard interior set, Aber metal barrels for machine guns and AFV Club aftermarket tracks. It's one of these vehicles that need the interior to be painted even before the basic assembly. So I was eager to complete the interior that much that it can be painted and the hull could be assembled. At first after following needed steps of the instruction it even seemed that way.
  7. Hi all, After far to long sitting on the shelf of "I'll finish it one day", that day has finally arrived. I did start a WIP, but that never went anywhere. Ho hum. This is the AFV Club centurion kit modified with the Accurate Armour conversion to make it into a Centurion MKI used as part of the Operation Sentry. More I could do, but its better than leaving it on that shelf (box in the corner actually) for another day (or three). I think there should be a repeat of the serial number on the turret, but there you go. I like the look of the tank without the side panels,
  8. Hi dear friends, this is my second experience with AFV CLUB Northrop family,actually this time with a copy of Northrop’s tiger! ”SAEGHEH” (in persian it means lightning)the Iranian version of F-5E Tiger II with some differences and upgrades.The most visible change is twin vertical fins!! The kit is the old F-5E kit with an extra sprue including saegheh parts and very nice decals. Colors are mixture of MR.HOBBY and AKAN paints. Sorry for non professional pictures,I took them in different lighting. Hope you enjoy Regards Barzin
  9. Hello everyone! With my second little one now semi-settled in to a sleeping routine, I may get the chance to do a bit of modelling again and who can ignore the chance to build a Tiger in a GB?! I'm hoping to finish this little beauty, AFV Club's 1/48th Tiger I Ausf E "Final Version". It will be a slow build as I steal the odd hour here and there. Looking forward to getting started
  10. AFV-Club ( http://en.hobbyfan.com.tw/index-1.asp ) has just announced 1/48th F-CK-1A & B Ching-Kuo kits. If they do a similar job as they did with the Northrop F-5E/F Tiger, it will be a great kit (http://www.hyperscale.com/2010/reviews/kits/afvclubar48102reviewcs_1.htm).

  11. Hello! Here's one of my first two kits completed this year. It's AFV Club's 1:144 Curtiss P-40N-5 Warhawk 663, flown by Wang Kuang Fu (6.5 kills), of the CACW's 7th FS/3rd FG, at Laohokow, China, January 1945. I scratchbuilt the missing intake detail, the CBI radio blister and loop and the outer struts for the drop tank. I added a headrest, belts and stick in the cockpit. I only realised the inaccurate setting of the tail wheel doors when it was too late. These come moulded with the fuselage halves and should be wide open, almost perpendicular to the fuselage. Since the tail wheel comes mo
  12. Here's the second of my first two kits completed this year. It's AFV Club's 1:144 Curtiss P-40M Warhawk 185, of the 47th Fighter Squadron, 15th Fighter Group, USAAF, at Noumea, New Caledonia, in December 1943. Apart from the comments I made on the P-40N I posted earlier today, I had to correct the cockpit as, despite including an insert for the rear section of the cockpit, the head armour part was incorrect for the M variant being slanted forward (for the P-40N) instead of rearwards. I added the missing radio mast. I had intended to make an RNZAF machine using the decals from the Printscal
  13. I’m going to start the first GB of the year off with something different for me an AFV!! After having so much fun building the ZSU-57 of the 60‘s GB I thought I better build something similar for this one. Enter the M42A1 Duster, I’ve always like this beast so here is the perfect opportunity to build one. I’ll be building AFV Club’s lovely model of this beast with a few extras thrown in. Of course I could go past Friulmodel tracks, though these ones are a wee bit more complicated to build than the usual one. You have to attached tiny white metal
  14. Another braille scale Starfighter announced! AFV Club is to release a new tool 1/32nd Lockheed F-104G(S?) Starfighter kit - ref.AR32104. Source: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.619334004778789.1073741859.236926266352900&type=1 V.P.

  16. Afternoon all Sitting here looking at the rain. My set of projects all on hold due to many supply and painting issue's (also l can't face the Sturer Emil at the moment....., it's gonna be a long one) So, I decided to have a time filler in between while waiting. Picked this up when I lived in the States in 2003. Never got round to moving further than a few parts on the chassis. I bought it to see what AFV Club was like. It's not Tamiya, but nice so far. Not a crisp detail on the small parts, and a little error ridden in the instruction sheet. But nothing that can't be o

  19. Vought F4U Corsair (AR14406) 1:144 AFV Club via Pocketbond The Corsair is an iconic fighter aircraft that had speed agility and an unusual look to recommend it to pilots, but its gestation was far from easy due to the highly demanding specification that required not only high speed, but great load carrying capability, combined with a low stall speed to make it suitable for carrier operations. It was given the largest engine then available in the shape of the Pratt & Whitney Double Wasp radial engine, which could drive a huge three bladed prop that was almost 14
  20. Sikorsky SH-3A/D Seaking (AR14405) 1:144 AFV Club via Pocketbond The Sea King is one of the most enduring aircraft of the post-war period, the Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King flew for the first time in 1959. Although no longer in production, the Sea King continues to serve with air arms around the world, including those of Canada, Germany India, Ireland, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom. The SH-3H was a US variant developed specifically for anti-submarine warfare. Originally conceived of as a development of the SH-3D, the SH-3H morphed into a sophisticated ASW platform a
  21. My entry for this GB will be AFV Club's M10 Tank destroyer. Unlikely to start for a couple of weeks, need to finish my entry in the F-104 STGB first.
  22. A new 1/144th Chance Vought F4U Corsair kit is announced by AFV Club - ref AR14406 Source: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1512888545423326.1073741955.236926266352900&type=3 Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=233&v=8BQ8UD2e5qA V.P.

  24. Churchill 3" Gun Tank with Snake Launcher (DH96006) 1:35 Ding-Hao Hobby The Churchill tank was named after Winnie, who once he realised it wasn't a particularly good tank, wasn’t very pleased with his namesake. It was a cruiser class tank intended to replace the Matilda, and was designed with the last war in mind, as were many of the British early war designs, so was under-armed and under-armoured. Many changes and variants later it was still having problems, and its terrible performance during the ill-fated and poorly prepared Dieppe landings sealed its reputati
  25. Evening all, was back at work today but did finally manage to get this beauty finished over my days off this week. AFV Club F-5N straight out of the box. I do have a PJ Productions pilot to drop into the pit shortly and I did have to replace the AFV Club decals with a set of Two Bobs decals, fortunately for an aircraft in the same colour scheme! A bit disappointing the the kit decals didn't play ball but the quality of the Two Bobs sheet kinda made up for it. Main finish done with Tamiya acrylics airbrushed, details done in Vallejo acrylics. Klear used before and after
