  1. Morning All, As Mr Mojo has been somewhat capricious of late, I rather fancied a little indulgence. Although I've been increasingly drawn to gentlemans' scale, I do still have a few 1:48 kits in my modest stash. So, what could be more indulgent than an Eduard Spitfire - Profipack indeed!! I have built a few of these, so the build is a well-trodden path, although this is a rather unusual version of the iconic aircraft. Here's the box art: What immediately jumps out is those pointy wingtips - that's not normal! I've been hankering after this lovely 'high altitude' colour scheme for a while, so there is no contest in the choice of scheme: This is an aircraft of 32 Sqn RAF, based in Foggia, Italy in early 1944. Here's a photo of JF364: I have seen this scheme completed with a red spinner, which I think will be a nice cherry on top of this most aesthetically pleasing scheme (which more than compensates for the weirdy-beardy wingtips, to my mind). Here's the sprue shots: Eduard's usual exquisite decals: So, off we trot for a bit of Eduard fun! Thanks for looking, Roger
  2. My New Year's resolution was to only build from The Stash and not buy any new kits. I've done really well! But then I saw the fun that @Mike had with the new Eduard Wildcat and I thought that I want some of that! So I broke my resolution. It was only ever a matter of time as the Airfix Bulldog is due for release imminently... There are lots and lots of interesting schemes for the Wildcat (maybe we need a Wildcat STGB...) but I thought it would be nice to continue the Yellow Wings theme from my Vindicator elsewhere in this GB. This is the Weekend boxing of the Eduard 1/48 F4F-3 Wildcat, and what a beauty it is. The first thing to notice is that it's in quite a big box for such a small aircraft. However... I feel that the box is a bit too shallow. No matter how one packs the parts, the box top bulges outwards which could cause problems. Having said that, there do not appear to be any issues in my kit. Mike has reviewed this kit elsewhere on BM and has kindly allowed me to link to photos in BM reviews. They are far better than any photos I could take. Here are the parts. Note: I have the Weekend version of the kit, so there are no masks in mine. This is gonna be fun! Here is the link to Mike's BM review.
  3. Hi all, I've decided to declare this one as a runner after she failed to get out of the box within the Mustang GB. I;m way too late and so I'll give her a go here. I might be overcooking things with a Kfir in prospect too but at least they dont require any butchery ;). The F-51D will be built using the new Eduard kit which is said to be delivered at the end of June 🤞. Martin
  4. I need to find some motivation to continue work on my F-84, but still have plenty of time for that. So I figured I’ll start my thread here in the meantime. I have plenty of planned subjects to choose from, including a couple for my yet to be built Wisconsin Aces collection, but I’m going to do a 361st bird for this GB. Specifically, Jasper Joker II flown by Lt. Donald Vulgamore. I’ll be building my first Eduard kit and using Aeromaster decals. And of course using an excellent Schiffer Military History book for reference.
  5. Hello all, Hadn't planned on entering this GB but having looked at my display shelves, there is a distinct lack of P-51s (total of 0) so that will need rectified! My entry will be a P-51D-10 of the 363rd Fighter Squadron, 357th Fighter Group, 8th Air Force, based at Leiston, Suffolk, in late 1944. A scheme I've always liked, 'Old Crow' was flown by Captain (at the time) Clarence 'Bud' Anderson, who went on to down 16 1⁄4 aircraft during the war. My first dabble with the Eduard P-51 and I'm looking forward to it - I do have another two in the stash and will add the B/C when released. Will be completely OOB as the kit comes with some lovely resin, masks and etch. Dave
  6. I decided to double down with a second build. It will be another 1/48 Eduard kit, this time being a fillet-less D-5 version. I’ve had this kit in the stash for a couple years with the intent of doing Richard Peterson’s “Hurry Home Honey” because I really really like the dark green over NMF scheme the 357th FG had on its early Ds. While researching the plane the other day on the LittleFriendsUK site, I came across a different plane from the same squadron with a pilot from my home state of Wisconsin. Always one to want to learn about the pilots from my state, I soon found out the pilot, Col Irwin Dregne, was an ace and was the last CO of the Yoxford Boys. His plane carried the same camo as Peterson’s and since Bullseye Decals’ excellent Yoxford Boy series has markings for it, I decided I’m going to build Dregne’s plane (just had to purchase the decals since it was on a separate sheet from HHH). It carries two names: Bobby Jeanne for his wife and daughter, and then Ah-Fung-Goo II which apparently was a name chosen by Dregne’s crew chief.
  7. Hello, Here's another project of mine. 3 american aircrafts including 1 and a half under british management. Both are early Mustangs with différents armament and of course different wing. 1 MTO, 1 ETO and the last from CBI There's an Accurate min and 2 ICM, serioulsly they're almost identical. The first to be finished, I guess will be the MTO one a P-51A from an US Sqdn on loan to an brit squadron. The colours will be ... Let's say, unusual. One of my favourite game , you both should know the kind of remark "are you sure about the colours ???" I modify the camera rack for 2 of thede Mustang, because, you receive this... And you must have that... So, I cut the brackets, throw away the original support, add an armour plate ( from her cousins ) slightly modified. Add wiring to the camera, That seem promising, there's also lots of sanding but the ICM are worst. I keep on going, modifying the wings according to the 3 different type of early mustang is funny. Thank for watching. Corsaircorp
  8. I am a little late to the party, but here I am! I know I'm not alone building one of these 1/72 Eduard Bf 110 kits for this GB, and it looks great! I won't bother with sprue shots. I'll be building it OOB as one of these Bf 110 that the Luftwaffe sent to Iraq. I think I attempted to build a Bf 110 (must have been Airfix) in the 1990s as a kid, but pretty sure it never made it to the finish line, so let's hope this goes differently!
  9. Its been sometime since i posted here . I seen this Hind E helicopter , Looks like a great OTB. Please enjoy Rick
  10. Hi, Although there are many P-51D's that I'd like to build, I'm going to go with the new Eduard P-51B. One reason is that I find it fascinating that the 8th AF succeeded in putting escort fighters over Berlin in daylight in March 1944. The Bullseye sheet has some of these. I'm going to go with B6-Y. 😉 Cheers, Stefan.
  11. First post for a while so a new build, thought a Vietnam era A-1 would just be the ticket. Armed with a bit of aftermarket like the lovely Brassin seat and some Quinta office decals I thought why not. Not much progress so far just the basic's of the pit. The seat is a real gem and paints up really well. Enjoy folks
  12. The second of the small but colourful builds is this pair of Skyhawk's, As to the markings for these I am spoilt for choice, the A-4F has some colourful tails and a 'Desert Bogeys' scheme , whilst the A-4E has a couple of nice options. Here are the photos of these tiny jets, I may send for some Master refuelling probes for these. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr Cheers for now. John

  14. I picked up the limited edition 1/72 Eduard Bf109f dual boxing at a model show recently. It's a really impressive kit of the quality you'd expect from Eduard and provides no less than 14 decal options. There is however one flaw that could very easily catch you out. The kit provides parts to build one Bf109F-2 (or a F-1 with some effort) and one Bf109F-4. You'd think that you could build any combination of one of the F-2 schemes and one of the F-4 schemes, but no, that is not the case. Some of the F-2s use parts from the F-4 sprues that you need for the F-4, in particular the wheel wells and upper wings. You could very easily end up being unable to complete a second model from this dual box. Seems like a bit of an oversight. I still have the F-4 to build, but I chose the F-2 scheme such that it won't impact the choices of F-4 available. As a comparison with my Zvezda Bf109F-2: You can see the WIP thread here: And then this happened...

  16. Halberd Models has just announced for October 2022 a 1/48th Piper Enforcer conversion set for the Eduard's P-51D or F-6D/K kits. Source: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=pfbid02Dy9kejba5QXzYbgJxvHXk1r2H1aEbMWF5tsfj4NKZJLz6sCyyLmW5vDhfjgfxwzrl&id=100064057054695 ] V.P.
  17. In the Czech Modelforum it's mentioned that after the 1/48th MiG-21, Spitfire and Bf.109 families, Eduard has as long term project the North American P-51 Mustang in the same scale. Wait and see. Source: http://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=68170&start=5865 V.P.
  18. I'm quite excited to start this! Here's a box shot - I'll be building Eduard's 1/48 P-51D, in markings of an aircraft flown by Lt James Hickey, out of Martlesham Heath. My late father was RAF groundcrew, and based at Martlesham until it became an American base in 1943, when he was transferred to work on Wellington bombers at Chipping Warden. So, a family connection, albeit a slightly tenuous one!
  19. Hi all, thought I'd put my placeholder down for this GB I will be building Eduard's P-51D-20 Mustang as an RAF 19 Squadron Mustang Mk.IV in 1945 Here's the obligatory kit photos 🙂 Couple of parts appear to have come off - especially one of the canopies on the clear sprue wheel. AM is Look Instrument panel, Brassin Wheels and Exhausts and Xtradecal Decals Still working on my Beaufighter build in the WW2 Twins Mega Build but can't wait for the off on this one Thanks for looking Many regards Matt

  21. When Italy joined NATO in 1949 she was still flying sleek and shiny Spitfires. As part of my "Spitfires-by-the-Seas" project, in which I am building a pair of Spitfires in the markings of countries bordering five seas, I will build an Italian Mk IXc as part of my "Ionian Sea" pair for this GB.
  22. Finally back in the land of modelling - my entry for this GB will be Eduard's reboxing of the Hasegawa GR7 / GR9 Harrier. As this is the NATO GB it will not be a Harrier based in the MIddle East so as not to build build yet another fully grey aircraft I will build one with white or green on it !! Onto the starting pictures , all new and packaged up The included Resin , PE and Decals
  23. Eduard is to rebox in June 2020 the hasegawa 1/72nd Martin B-26 Marauder kit - ref. Source: http://www.kitreviewsonline.de/eduard-pressekonferenz-in-nuernberg/ V.P.
  24. The latest kit off of the bench - made as a retirement gift for one of my colleagues. Our firm was originally a Napier factory, so he wanted something with a big Napier engine in it! The aircraft depicted is SN330 flown by Sqn Ldr Macfie of 3 Sqn RAF, Germany 1947. This aircraft was refurbished by Hawker post war and sprayed High Speed Silver before redelivery to the RAF. The only photo of the aircraft has it fitted with rocket rails, so the model is too! Kit was built from the Royal Class boxing, using the included Resin Exhausts and etch set. Painted with Mr Color 159 ‘Super Silver’ which I think is perfect for the RAF high speed silver. Finished with an oil wash, exhaust staining with Tamiya smoke and finished with Mr Color satin varnish. I omitted the framing around the radiator air filter as the Photo etch was a nightmare - if I had more time I may have attempted to scratch build something with Plasticard. Cockpit made up into a stunning replica, having built the special hobby 1/32 Tempest cockpit, this one was a dream to put together in comparison. Surface detail on the kit is lovely, but trying to maintain it when sanding some of the more tricky seams is difficult - particularly the join between fuselage and flaps: The design of the trailing edge is truly terrible, hence the filler! I believe they have amended this on their Mk.ii tempest. Other than that a lovely kit, next up is the Series 1 aircraft from the same boxing 🙂 Thanks for looking! Ash P.S - Props to @Ben Hartmannfor lending me ‘RAF Stotfold’ for the afternoon to shoot some good outdoor snaps 😉 P.P.S - Apologies if you’ve seen this model on any social media already!
  25. This is the brilliant 1/72 Eduard Spitfire IXe in Royal Danish Air Force markings. I added Eduard Merlin engine and wing cannon resin. Adding the resin parts was not an easy task, but in the end i think it turned out ok. Thanks for watching. Drakendk
