  1. Hello guys, while I wait for the last parts of my 109 to dry, I decided to take the first photos of my first 3D printed model: Kosmosur 3D's A-4B in 1:72. The model came with decals from Calcas del Sur for a bare metal or camouflaged aircraft. Here's a photo of the model. More photos soon. The brown patch was painted by me to test if the paint would stick to the surface.
  2. Decided to revisit the first Argentinian aircraft I built (2018). Originally, the slat bays were painted in RLM 02 because I didn't have red. Photo of the real aircraft. You can also see that the inner portion of the flaps were painted in camouflage colour:
  3. Hello fellas! As I was reading the book of Sq. Ld. Jerry Pook and learning more about the almighty mud movers actions during the 'South Atlantic' conflict in 1982, Kinetic released it's long-waited 1/48 Harrier GR.3, so I have no other choice than proceed!! Hahaha... A very very enjoyable kit to build. Definitely -in my opinion- several steps forward on comparison with their previous Harriers. About the ordnance, and discarding the Sidewinders, the RN rocket pods on the outboards pylon and a CBU BL-755 on central pylon appears to be more accurate with some of the Falklands actions. A flight of Harrier GR.3 with rockets made a decisive and fatal blast on the last push on the ground battle for Goose Green. No aftermarkets where used on this kit, but there are only 2 variants to it: the addition of a 1/48 Tamiya pilot (from an old A-10) and a slightly customization of the ADEN 30 mm cannon pods drilling the vent holes. So, enough talking, let the photos show you my tribute to this legend. Next one will be the F-5 Tiger III of the Chilean Air Force (FACH). Best wishes from Chile and happy modelling to all! Cris
  4. Hello there! Next on the list of the Falklands/Malvinas serie I picked an Italeri SkyhawkA-4E and decided to adventure myself on a conversion to a A-4 "C"... using some spare parts from the Hasegawa kit (mainly the cone shape). Also it was the first time I intended to replicate a piece with POXIPOL, a plastic cement very popular in South America, in this case for the dorsal radome (different shapes between the naval "Q" and the FAA "B" and "C"). I saw a technique on the web using silycone as a mould, and POXIPOL as main element. It worked! I used the decals that come with the Hasegawa kit... still waiting for the Aztec decals I ordered in August... COVID has certainly change delivery schedules! About the armament, I know that the A-4 "Charlies" used one english MK-17 1,000 lb (484 kgs) bomb early in the South Atlantic conflict on the central pylon, later using 3 spanish BRP. 250 kg EXPAL bombs. I decided to use one MK-17 and two Mk.82 under the wings, as they are very similar to the spaniard bombs. So, enough talking, let the photos show you my tribute to this loyal and legendary "scooter" jet. Next one will be the Harrier GR.3 by Kinetic. Cheers from Chile! Cris
  5. Hi there! After almost a 20 years hiatus... I returned to this beautiful youth hobby a few months ago, and decided to give it a go with some old WWII kits (Tamiya's Wildcat, for instance). However, during the reading of the excellent book written by Commander Nigel David "Sharkey" Ward about his experiencies flying the SHAR during the 1982 conflict between UK and Argentina, I decided to build several British and Argentinian aircraft on a "Falklands/Malvinas" serie. To start the fires, I chose the Kinetic 1/48 scale BAe SEA HARRIER FRS. 1. Here are some photos of its process and the final results. PS: this was the second jet that I painted with acrylics... and I loved the results! Cris. PS 2: SuE is on it's way!
  6. Continuing with the "Falklands/Malvinas" serie, the Super Etendard was the follow-up to the SHAR. It was my first Kittyhawk kit build. A nice kit in general terms, no big issues, a little bit of puty here and there but nothing terrible. Excellent decals! The main con about the kit was the vague and poor instructions. But with a great deal of patience and time (ohmmm) it worked out OK.
  7. I think it is the right place and time to post my recently finished kit here. It is the FMA IA-58 Pucará which 38 years ago was a part of Falklands war. I am glad to have it in my display cabinet besides other kits related to Falklands. Especially it is nice to see the difference in size between the Pucará and Sea Harrier. For more pictures and details about the build and this plane, please visit my full article here: http://72insight.com/en/pucara-1-72-special-hobby/ Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
  8. My fellow modellers good afternoon. As promised during the presentation of my previous work, the HMS Invincible, I just finished today my last tribute to the Royal Navy at the Falklands War. For this work, I used a 1/700 scale 25th anniversary of Falklands war Premium Edition Dragon Kit, that, as you know, is provided with photo-edges for railings and radar, that are still a pain for my eyes and put a strain on my nerves and my building skills. This kit was built together with the HMS INVINCIBLE, as my previous intention was to representing them together on navigation, leaving Portsmouth. But I wasn't sure they left the Royal Navy base the same day, and it turned to be represented separately. For this kit, I tried to imagine the last moments before she was hit by an Exocet missile during her navigation on the Falklands sea. Here what I have realized, I hope you like it: IMG_20190324_135652 by Franco Segato, su Flickr IMG_20190324_135801 by Franco Segato, su Flickr IMG_20190324_135920 by Franco Segato, su Flickr IMG_20190324_135947 by Franco Segato, su Flickr IMG_20190324_135957 by Franco Segato, su Flickr IMG_20190324_140011 by Franco Segato, su Flickr IMG_20190324_140021 by Franco Segato, su Flickr IMG_20190324_140044 by Franco Segato, su Flickr IMG_20190324_140130 by Franco Segato, su Flickr IMG_20190324_140159 by Franco Segato, su Flickr IMG_20190324_140214 by Franco Segato, su Flickr Now she's resting with the other previous ships/work on the display case: IMG_20190324_140533 by Franco Segato, su Flickr ...and ...down with another project! Thank you. Franco

  10. Hi guys West Middlesex Model Club was contacted recently asking if someone could build an Airfix Vulcan for a guy who used to be a flight engineer on these before the Black Buck missions. He had been bought the kit many years ago and he has never got round to it. For some crazy reason I put my hand up and volunteered. I must be a glutton for punishment and it has been maybe 20 years since I last had a go at one of these. I will probably end up rescribing the beast as the horrible raised details will not survive the clean up required. I know this kit has many issues quality and accuracy wise which I am not fussed about. Really looking forward to a quick build and getting to the paint stage which I am looking forward to. Hopefully I can do a good job on this. Looking to mount on a wooden base at the end. I will need to do some research for a hard stand concrete base replica thing to mount to the wooden base. It could be interesting finding one big enough. Childhoodmemories. IMAG1442 by Mark Inman, on Flickr Here is where things are so far. IMAG1443 by Mark Inman, on Flickr Not much left in the box.

  11. Is there any aftermarket source for these weapons? I've google searched but found nothing apart from a thread here that gave approximate dimensions. I have to say I'm bloody disappointed with the Kinetic Mirage V Dagger boxing, they just threw in some new decals and made ZERO effort in terms of armament and drop tanks for Falklands War Daggers. The same goes for Hasegawa in their A4-C boxing. If not, I might have to try and bash a Mk 82 into something that looks like the Expal weapon.
  12. Hello all This is my first time posting on Britmodller, I have a work in progress Falklands War diorama I aim to have a rear cross section of HMS Hermes deck in 1/72nd, which I have roughly measured out from the ships specifications, I know what Ive got is not even remotely accurate however, since I don't currently have the resources for that 1/72 Aircraft-wise, so far I have: 2 Sea Harrier FRS.1 - 1 Italeri, 1 Airfix 1 Harrier GR.3 - Italeri 2 Wessex HU.5 - 1 Italeri, 1 Matchbox 1 Wessex HAS.3 - Italeri 1 Sea King HAS.5 - Revell 1 Sea King HC.4 - Dragon Figures are from Italeri. My extremely quickly thrown together hangar. RFA Tidepool's Wessex HU.5 In 1/350th, in the background I have Airfix's HMS Illustrious, (very) hastily converted into Invincible with plasticard and Milliput. The water was done with Plaster of Paris. This was thrown together speedily to take part in an Air Cadets wing level modelling competition, I now plan on constructing the section of Hermes from wood as originally planned, rather than cardboard and gaffa tape
  13. Hi mates. Here's my latest work. It's the 1/48 Hasegawa a-4C Skyhawk in FAA colors and marking, during Falklands war in 1982. It was built straight from the box with the only extra the FAA Skyhawk antennas that were included in Condors decals set. It was painted with Gunze acrylics and Humbrol enamels. The antennas on the tail fin are scratchbuilt. I hope you like it. Sorry for the bad quality of the photos, they've been taken from my iPhone. Thanks for your time and interest, guys! Cheers!
