  1. Dora Wings is to release a 1/48th Curtiss-Wright SNC-1 Falcon II kit - ref. DW48041 Source: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=2740877219476171&id=1929101897320378 3D renders V.P.
  2. Fiat CR.42CN Falco WWII Italian Night Fighter (32024) 1:32 ICM The Fiat CR.42 Falco (Falcon) was developed in the late 1930s at a time when the more modern monoplane fighters were starting to outstrip bi-planes in performance but it was felt they still had a place. The CR.42 was a development of the CR.32 which were used with success in the Spanish Civil War. The new aircraft would feature a supercharged radial engine and be of simple clean strong construction offering good manoeuvrability. The CR.42 was considered to be the best bi-plane available at the start of WWII although that in itself might be faint praise. Despite its apparent obsolescence the CR.42 would fight in every campaign with the Italian Forces and be exported to Belgium, Sweden, and Hungary. The CN version was developed as a Nightfighter with underwing spotlights and extended flame damping exhausts. The Luftwaffe would use the aircraft after taking over Italian examples following the 1943 armistice. Following this the Luftwaffe placed and order for 200 CR.42 LW, these were optimised for night harassment and operations against partisan forces mainly in the Balkans. The Kit This is a welcome new tool kit from ICM. The parts are crisp and well moulded consistent with ICMs modern tooling. This boxing brings up new parts for the Nightfighter versions. Depending on the decal option modelled there are parts for flame damping exhausts, and underwing target illuminating lights in pods. Construction starts with the cockpit, as with most fighters of the this era this is a tubular affair which sits into the fuselage. The base of the seat fits to the floor with the flight controls going in. The front bulkhead fits to this with the rudder controls attached to it. The rest of the frames then builds up around this with the back of the seat going in. Into the main fuselage the pilots headrest is fitted along with the instrument panel (instruments are provided as decals). Once these two parts are in the cockpit can be fitted in and the fuselage closed up. The decking in front of the cockpit can then be added. At the rear of the aircraft the rudder and tailplanes can then be constructed and added., with the tail wheel assembly going on under the tail. Moving to the front of the aircraft the detailed engine is built up. There are two banks of cylinders for the radial engine with an exhaust manifold and ignition harness. There are some slightly different parts for the different variants here, along with the different exhausts. The propeller hub attaches to the front and a full set of cowl flaps to the rear. There are sets for open and closed flaps. The cowl and covers can then be attached, though the covers can be left off to show the engine, The completed unit then attached to the front of the aircraft and the air filter then goes on. We now move onto the wing. The lower wings are two part left and right, with a single upper wing split top/bottom. There is one set of struts from each side of the fuselage, then two sets per wing. All fit into positive locating points. The top side ailerons are separate parts with their control horns being added. For the version with the light pods a small turbine attaches to the upperwing to supply power for the lights. Once the wings are on its time to fit the propeller and fixed under carriage. If the light pods are to be used hopefully you opened up the holes in the main lower wing! These can now be fitted. Decals Four options are provided for on the decal sheet: CR. 42CN, MM 75XX, 300 Sqn/167 Gruppo Autonomo Caccia Notturna, Grottaglie June 1943 (3 colour uppers with Black undersides) - as shown on the box art. CR.42CN, MM XXXX 377 Sqn Autonomo Inercettoir, Palermo 1942 (3 colour uppers with Black undersides). CR.43CN, MM 1928, 234 Sqn / Gruppo Autonomo Caccia Notturna, 1943 (Overall black) CR.42CN MM XXXX, Tenente Luigi Torchio, 377 Sqn Autonomo Inercettoir, Palermo 1943 (Overall black) The decals look nicely printed with no issues. Conclusion It is great to see ICM releasing new tools of aircraft like this in 1/32. Highly recommended. Available in the UK from importers H G Hannants Ltd. Review sample courtesy of
  3. Fiat CR.42 LW With German Pilots (32022) 1:32 ICM The Fiat CR.42 Falco (Falcon) was developed in the late 1930s at a time when the more modern monoplane fighters were starting to outstrip bi-planes in performance but it was felt they still had a place. The CR.42 was a development of the CR.32 which were used with success in the Spanish Civil War.

Despite its apparent obsolescence the CR.42 would fight in every campaign with the Italian Forces and be exported to Belgium, Sweden, and Hungary. The Luftwaffe would use the aircraft after taking over Italian examples following the 1943 armistice. Following this the Luftwaffe placed and order for 200 CR.42 LW, these were optimised for night harassment and operations against partisan forces mainly in the Balkans. The LW featured underwing racks for 4 50kgs bombs and a flame dampened exhaust. Of the 200 ordered 150 were built with 112 being accepted into service. The Kit This is a new tool kit from ICM, the original release was for the Italian Air Force, now followed up with this Luftwaffe release. The parts are crisp and well moulded consistent with ICMs modern tooling. Construction starts with the cockpit, as with most fighters of the this era this is a tubular affair which sits into the fuselage. The base of the seat fits to the floor with the flight controls going in. The front bulkhead fits to this with the rudder controls attached to it. The rest of the frames then builds up around this with the back of the seat going in.

We now move onto the wing. The lower wings are two part left and right, with a single upper wing split top/bottom. There is one set of struts from each side of the fuselage, then two sets per wing. All fit into positive locating points. The top side ailerons are separate parts with their control horns being added. Once the wings are on its time to fit the propeller and fixed under carriage. Here the two different decal options feature slightly different parts so the modeller will need to pick their option. If going for the first decal option the long flame dampening exhausts will need to be added as well. If the bomb racks are to be used hopefully you opened up the holes in the main lower wing! The racks and their four bombs can now be fitted. Decals Two options are provided for on the decal sheet: 2./Nacht Schlacht Gruppe 9, Luftwaffe, Turin April 1944 Nacht Schlacht Gruppe 20, Luftwaffe, Strasbourg, October 1943 The decals look nicely printed with no issues. The Figures. Adding figures to a model gives it scale and realism that is hard to otherwise achieve, and often this is done with resin figures that are both expensive and for those not too keen on resin, this can be off-putting. Styrene figures however are simple to deal with, and with advances in sculpting and moulding techniques they are becoming more detailed and realistic as time passes (unless I paint them!). This new set from ICM, who have an excellent reputation for injection moulded figures, depicts a group of WWII Luftwaffe pilots stood relaxing. It arrives in a top-opening box, with the usual inner flap on top, with a single sprue of medium grey styrene inside, together with a sheet of instructions on glossy paper. The figures are moulded very crisply, and at 1:32 they are large enough to show off subtle details such as zipper pockets, boot details, insignia and other badges. Couple this with the breakdown of parts, and you will have a highly detailed figure once you have assembled them. The moulding seams are minimal, with slender sprue gates that also won't need much clean up, and the parts join at convenient breaks such as waists, trouser seams etc. One chap has his hands out in front of him, which necessitates his arms being separate from the elbow down, so a little filler may be needed there, but precious little if any should be required elsewhere. The two capped figures have their heads moulded as a single part, while the pilot with a peaked cap has a two part head, split at the cap brim, and each pilot has a side arm in holster that should be glued onto his waistband. Two of the figures have moulded-in life vests, while the third does not, instead having a ¾ length coat with fleecy collar turned up around his neck. Each of them have their faces turned subtly skywards as if they are watching their colleagues return after a mission, having already landed themselves. The instructions show the part numbers and paint codes on the same diagram, which relates to a table on the rear in Revell and Tamiya codes with the colour names in English and Cyrillic text. Conclusion It is great to see ICM releasing new tools of aircraft like this in 1/32, the addition of the figures makes for a good all round package.

  4. Hi all, Fair to say that naval aviation types figure a lot in my builds, whether jets, props or rotors. And I've always had a soft spot for the Grumman C-2 Greyhound - it's the white van of the US Carrier Fleet, bringing anything from post and passengers to spare parts and jet engines to and from aircraft carriers, wherever they may be in the world. Not the prettiest,. Or the fastest. But one of the most important types I think. And sadly lacking in kits for such an important type with a service career dating back to 1965 and only being replaced this year with the Osprey Kit wise, there's Kinetic's lovely recent 1/48 issue and some 1/144 resin offerings. I built the OzMods conversion a couple of years back and while I really enjoyed it, I wanted something in 1/72. There is RHVP's epic resin conversion for the 1/72 Hasegawa Hawkeye (on which the Greyhound is based) but I don't fancy raiding the kids' rainy day fund just yet - besides, I need it for a Bandai PG Falcon someday. So when the chance came to get a Falcon Vacform conversion & donor kit last year, I decided why not - I'll never build a vacform but at least I have a Greyhound in 1/72!. And then...I went and built a vacform Super King Air for the Maritime GB here. With being at home for the immediate future (and waiting on some paint orders to finish some other builds), I thought...maybe it's time to tackle the Greyhound. So here we go, sandpaper and swear words at the ready! Falcon_ Grumman_Greyhound_vacform_1 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Cut out from the Falcon set and lined in marker pen liner..

Thanks for looking, Dermot
  5. Hi all and just finished up this one - I've always wanted a Grumman C-2 Greyhound in 1/72 and felt lockdown was the time to build it! Full build thread plastic bodging is here but to recap: Kits: Falcon 4605 C-2A Greyhound Vacform Conversion with Fujimi E-2 Hawkeye donor Build: Conversion! Extras: None - 30G of nose weight in the kit courtesy of 1c coins Decals: Mix of Fujimi stencils and spares. Painted tails for VRC-30 'Providers' Paints: Halfords Primer, Tamiya Acrylics, Kear, Flory Models Wash, W&N Satin Varnish This is the 2nd vacform I've built and I'm very happy how it turned out. Yes, some goofs along the way and some finishing issues I need to get better at but proud of how it looks. Falcon_Fujimi 1_72_C2A_Greyhound_(9) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Falcon_Fujimi 1_72_C2A_Greyhound_(11) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Falcon_Fujimi 1_72_C2A_Greyhound_(3) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Falcon_Fujimi 1_72_C2A_Greyhound_(4) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Falcon_Fujimi 1_72_C2A_Greyhound_(8) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr If I was to sum up the conversion into pros and cons, i'd probably go with... Pros - Hey, it's a 1/72 Greyhound! - Overall dimensions look right - Plenty of space behind the cockpit for that nose weight - Did I say it's a 1/72 Greyhound?! Cons - Very little surface detail - I drew it on with a pencil because I was scared to scribe it - Kit-supplied bulkhead templates just don't fit (too small) - Kit-supplied Vacform canopy nice and clear but fitting was a bear. - Fujimi donor kit is very basic (no u/c gear detail) and tailplane will need correcting But after all that, I still love it and is one of my favourites. In COD we trust! Thanks for looking and happy modelling. Dermot
  6. Hi! Im Fredrik and im new to this forum. Great to be here! I just picked up modeling together with my brother and father (we made a hobby room for dad as a 60 yr gift). Last time i built something was when I was 12. Iron eagle has always been one of my faviorite movies as a kid (still is kind of) so building a F16 was an easy decision. Looking for comments about what to improve techniquewise for my next model. Hopefully I can add some images of the result in daylight when I get back to our hobbyroom . I put the images in the post below.
  7. Amodel is to release 1/72nd Dassault Falcon 50 kits - ref. 72293 & 72307 Source: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234997175-amodel-new-172nd-1144th-kits-in-2016-update/ V.P.
  8. I was luckiy enough to grad one of these when they briefly came into stock at Hannants. This is the Revell distributed version. The only difference in the box is a small revell sticker on the back , otherwise its the premium edition of the Bandai kit with the leds and etched parts. Its a Beautiful kit with spectacular details. I made life a bit easier for myself by removing alot of the push fit connections and using Tamiya extra thin. Its a real time bandit , especially the paintjob with hundreds of tiny decals all over , and i still have not added them all yet. If you are a Star wars Fan and are thinking of getting one , do it!

  10. Late last year I went on a Viper rampage. Here's the first of them. Kit is the Revell F-16C kit which has all the bits for an early F-16C. The famous Rammstein Dragon is one of the most colorful of all USAF Vipers IMHO and I have always wanted to build it. The decals came from a Superscale set but all the stencils were swindled from an old Revell F-16A boxing, one of the few places one can get hi-viz stencils that were the norm up until the Gulf War (hey decal makers, what are you waiting for?). The aircraft was an early Block 30 which still had the narrow intakes. Gunze paints were used throughout (except 36118 which was Tamiya XF-24) with some light weathering with enamels. I decided to build the Viper unarmed aside from AIM-9s. More Vipers coming soon...
  11. And finally, the last of the trio of Vipers that I finished recently. This is an Academy F-16C Block 42 in the super attractive new Have Glass scheme. I used, for the first time ever, Mr Paint. It went on beautifully although I would have liked it to be a bit darker. I would strongly recommend MRP to anyone else, my only impediment to using more of them is living in a relatively small place in London where ventilation is an issue (it's lacquer-based) and yes, it smells bad. The much-maligned Academy kit has its major issues, namely a nose that is too straight and which shows when looking at it sideways. It comes in either Block 40/50 or 42/52 boxings with different intake/exhaust combos. The Block 40/50's wide intake is horrible, looks like the grin of the Cheshire cat. However, the narrow intake is much better, although I think it is a tad bit too small (about 1mm); still, it looks ok next to the Revell. On the plus side, the Academy is the only Viper kit in 1/72 that includes the holographic HUD that is standard on the Block 40/42s. For that reason alone, I felt I had no choice but to use it, rather than base it on the Revell kit which aside from the HUD also requires the bulged wheel covers, etc. The Academy also has much better fit than the Revell, with less fiddly bits to worry about, like the landing gear which can get tricky on the latter (I have yet to build a modern Revell kit that does not have some landing gear issues). Block 40/42 need strengthening plates, and these were taken from a vinyl set. The decals came from the Caracal sheet which is good... except for the fact that the walkway lines are too short. WAY too short, like 3-4cm more needed to cover the whole airframe. This is rather annoying, coming from a sheet that costs £13.99, it was not that hard to have added enough for two aircraft. I therefore had to mask the missing section (the part beneath the national insignia on the starboard rear fuselage) and paint with Gunze 36495. You won't be able to tell the difference unless you really really look (the painted line is slightly wider than its decaled opposite). Weapons came from the kit. Masking the JDAMs was a bit annoying but looks great in the end (note the instructions do not tell you that the tail of the JDAMs is usually grey too). The kit has a nice assortment of pods too. I left the aircraft with a satin-ish varnish even though it looks flat in the pictures. I need to find a way of replicating the metallic sheen seen on these birds... Finally, for some reason Academy does not want you to build this with an open cockpit, however, this is not too hard to arrange yourself, I was just too lazy and wanted to take pictures of it first. Later I'll find a way of leaving it open. Thanks for looking!
  12. Part II of the late 2017 Viper spree that I just finished off recently, here's another Revell F-16C with markings of "Wild Thang", a Desert Storm bird from Shaw AFB. This was a Block 25 and so had both the narrow intake and P&W engine. A few other bits and bobs had to be corroborated with pictures since Revell's instructions do not account for a Block 25 or 30/32 despite these being the only C blocks that the kit gets right! The aircraft depicted is from the 363rd TFS from Shaw AFB with nose art "Wild Thang". The decals came from an old Hi-Decals set that I had since ages ago. I am not a huge fan of Hi Decals. They are quite thick and register in not that great and so avoided as many as I could (only the unit code, serial, and nose art), with all the other stencils coming from an old Superscale sheet, alas they are not made for the Revell kit and are quite incomplete, notably on all the underside bits. Note that the Shaw birds during Desert Storm did not have the walkway lines painted which saved me some trouble. Paints were all Gunze except 36118 (Tamiya XF-24 instead). The centerline pod and the bombs were taken from a Hasegawa weapons set, as was the TER. Although Vipers use a special TER set, it should be noted that in Desert Storm many of them carried the standard types. I also tinted the canopy with a mix of Tamiya transparent yellow and smoke. So mostly was just to have a Desert Storm viper on the shelf. Looks good anyway!
  13. Hi all I recently purchased the Bandai 1/144 falcon and I’ve been looking into using the shapeways cockpit but I’ve never used shapeways before, does anyone have a link to them as I don’t even know where to start looking Sam
  14. Yet another master series Falcon from me. I have lost count of how many of these i have built. Nearly straight from the box but with 3d printed radar dish. Weathering is being a bit washed out in the photos. weathering not 100% movie accurate but this is my Falcon so im not too bothered. Still a great kit.
  15. When: 7th January 2017 to 9th April 2017 Hosts: trickyRich, Neu Before anyone mentions it, yes we have had one of those before in 2012. But seeing as the STGB calendar is full up until 2017 there would have been a nice break since the last one and so it must be time to do it again! This is one of "those" aircraft you never really get tied of, almost a perfect design, and really successful design at that was used throughout the world and still is very much in use! Plus the nice thing is there is a huge range of models for this aircraft from 1/144th up to 1/32nd and covering ever variant.

  16. I've not finished the base, but here's my take on the Force Awakens Falcon. The model was primed in Citadel black from a rattle can, with a couple of light base coats of that rare beast Tamiya AS-20. For the panelling I used the supplied water slides, with lots of coats of Microsol. Everything else was completed with multiple pin washes in brown & black, with a couple of spots of soot airbrushed on (it was my first time using an airbrush, so be gentle!), and finally the streaking was a built-up mix of brown & black Gundam real touch markers (these blend up so well, and are very forgiving if you have an incident!). Looking at some of the other builds of this kit online, it seems to be all too easy to end up with a model that's a little too dark, so I tried to keep the weathering subtle to keep the overall base colour bright. Adding a touch of brown to any black washes also helped to keep the tones warm after the harsh black primer coat. Anyway, I hope you like the results!

  18. AIM-4D and AIM-4G Falcon Missiles 1:72 Eduard Brassin The AIM-4 Falcon was designed by Hughes Aerospace. It was the first operational guided air-to-air missile of the USAF. The AIM-4 was a not liked in the USAF it originally had a small warhead and was limited by lacking a proximity fuse. The missile had to hit to kill. In addition limited coolant meant the missile was useless on the rail after only two minutes. The AIM-4G was the Infrared seeker version of the Super Falcon as it was called which replaced the original AIM-4C. The AIM-4D was the final version of the missile which entered service in 1963. This was a lighter smaller airframe with the improved IR seeker head of the AIM-4G. Both sets of missiles from Eduard come as a four set, the missiles are one part moulding with the rear on the casting block. Once removed there is a phot-etched part fo the detail on the rear of the missile. Both sets come with a small sheet of decals for the markings. AIM-4D AIM-4G Conclusion The casting on these missiles is first rate and they will enhance any model you choose to hang them off. Highly recommended. AIM-4D AIM-4G Review samples courtesy of

  22. Miles M.3 Falcon, Pics thanks to Mark Mills.
  23. Scalemates lists the Dujin kit, but also the unknown to me A-A Model, in 1/72. However, there are no more details in the page, not even a photo of the box. http://www.scalemates.com/products/product.php?id=203791 Anyone knows if this kit is still available? A Miles Falcon would be great news from Airfix! (dreaming is cheap...) Carlos
  24. Hi All, I have a few questions about the F-16F Desert Falcon (UAE Air Force) which I hope you knowledgeable types out there might be able to answer? 1) What kind of wheels does it have? Are they the same as the Block 50/52? 2) What is the laser targeting pod they carry? It looks different to the Sniper XR, is it a new type and is it available in 1/32? (yeah right! ) 3) Do the UAE F-16s carry standard wing tanks or can they also use the 600gal tanks? 4) Any clues as to the air-to-surface load they would typically carry? Do they have JSOW, AGM-130 or SLAM-ER? Otherwise do they use the same JDAM GBU-31 or -38s as US forces? 5) Does the backseat have any flight controls? Thanks very much, and that's probably just for starters!! Al
  25. Finished yesterday, had a few fitting problems and I messed with decals a bit but am still pleased with the result. Regards
