  1. Hobby Boss is to release in 2019-2020 a new tool 1/48th Boeing Bell MV-22 Osprey kit - ref. 81769 Source: https://www.facebook.com/TrumpeterModel/photos/pcb.1159171700908088/1159171487574776/?type=3&theater V.P.
  2. I've been encouraged by a respected member of this forum to provide some of my work for others to see. The last number of years I've struggled to finish and complete a kit. My building started in the 70's and the 80's and 90's, completed many and reaching a quality level that I was really pleased with. I have a good feeling working on this kit, I do see the finishing line relatively speaking. The LTV A-7 aircraft has been a favourite of mine for some time. And 2 seat versions of normally single seat aircraft as well a favourite. Yes the Hobby Boss Corsair has its warts, but I don't
  3. Hi to all! Here is HobbyBoss 1/72 F9F2 Panther in colors of Argentina. On kit are used Quickboost aftermarket, nose, wheels, wheels covers and jet pipe. Painted, weathered and washed with Ammo Mig colors. Thanks for watching! BR
  4. Everything else is heading to decals & weathering so time to start he next kit. Going with the Hobby Boss M4 HST (most likely in straight OD). It may eventually have something to tow (thinking a captured 88mm AA unit). Usual box art/sprue shot to start
  5. A-26 Invader (83213) 1:32 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd The A-26 Invader underwent a confusing change of designation to B-26 Invader after 1948 by the US Air Force to confuse us (mainly me), and later on back to the A-26 just to complete my befuddlement. It was developed a little later than the Marauder and despite using the same engines it was designed totally separately from its more rotund colleague. It was designed to replace the A-20 Havoc, but it was initially less than popular in the Pacific theatre where its poor cockpit visibility due to the canopy
  6. 1/48th Sukhoi Su-27 "Flanker-B" by HobbyBoss in 2013 - catalogue ref. 81711 Source: http://scalemodels.ru/modules/news/img_5748_1358082281_fe7282025aafa40f1fabea15ab64034f79f0190e.jpg.html V.P.
  7. Su-27 Flanker-B Russian Knights (81776) 1:48 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd The Su-27 and sibling Mig-29 were developed as a complementary pair of heavy and lighter fighters to combat the F-15 that was in development as the F-X at the time. It first flew in 1977, but encountered serious problems that resulted in some fairly spectacular crashes, some of which were fatal, but with persistence and successive rounds of improvements it came on strength with the Russian air force in 1985, but was still plagued with problems that prevented it from being seen in oper
  8. German 3.7cm Pak 35/36 auf Pz.Kpfw. 35R(f) (83895) 1:35 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd With a chassis originally designed by Renault, the R35 was a light infantry tank used by the French army in their unsuccessful defence of their homeland at the beginning of WWII, after which it remained in service with the German forces as a beutepanzer, where it was either used in second line service, or heavily converted to a makeshift gun carriage and used as a self-propelled howitzer. There were almost a thousand R35s in service at capitulation, and they had been found b

  10. Messerschmitt Me.262A-1a Fighter (81805) 1:18 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd The Schwalbe had the distinction of being the first jet engine fighter to see active service, and was respected by the Allies due to its speed and manoeuvrability, care of the advanced axial-flow engines that burned brightly, but not for very long. It came too late with too few airframes entering service due to delays with the engines, and the German high-command's insistence that every aircraft should have a myriad of variants sporting different configurations that brought with them
  11. Corsair Mk.III (80396) 1:48 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd 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 optimistic and highly demanding specification that required not only high speed but great war-load carrying capability and 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 w
  12. A6M5c | Hobby Boss | 1/72 W.O. Takeo Tanimizu, Pilot, Imperial Japanese Navy, 203rd Flying Group, 1945 I finished this on 10/13/2020. This is the Hobby Boss A6M5c, which I built to replace the Hasegawa boxing of Tanimizu's aircraft which I built in late High School and whose molds date to 1972 (according to scalemates). I love the double cannons in the wings, it just looks dangerous! Although in reality the extra weight without a more powerful engine made it a dog. But it looked cool. Of the 1/72 offerings of the 5c, the Hobby Boss was the one that had very f
  13. I recently bought this kit and now I found this GB so I thought it would be a good idea to join and try to actually build the thing! I like it because according to Wikipedia this type's first flight took place on the day I was born - I feel a connection already As I've said elsewhere, I have only returned to aircraft modelling a short while ago and am still very much in the learning stage, so please don't expect any miracles. Mind you, it will be a small miracle if I actually finish the model. I will probably have to ask a few questions as I go along, if that is all right. This i
  14. I've built helicopters in the past (Airfix Scout and Puma, Matchbox Cobra and Hasegawa Huey linger in the memory), but not for a long time. I'm also way too fond of a terrible pun, so this build just had to happen. I'm really sorry This is what I will be building. Like all my build threads, it is waiting on my long suffering postie to deliver the actual box before I can get started. I'm stealing the national markings from this Begemot sheet I have for the Mi-8, they're the interesting red and yellow roundels in the bottom left corner between the Indian r
  15. Found in the Weibo from one of the most talentuous Trumpy Boss Chinese illustrator, Yiming Zhang: a Pilatus PC-21! The next Hobby Boss secret project after the 1/48th Embraer EMB-314 Super Tucano ( http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234948314-148-embraer-emb-314-super-tucano-by-hobby-boss-released-avm-usaf-conversion-set/ ) ?

  16. Greetings! Here is my entry to the STGB, Hobby Boss Corsair II. It has two FAA options in camouflage scheme, which i am usure of its accuracy, anyone with any knowledge of such matters please pitch in or i will blindly build it OOTB as per the instructions. I have taken photos of the colour profiles listed below.. This kit was purchased after i read the book The Kamikazi Hunters (cover pic below) which was a really good read. The FAA certainly deserves more recognition of its exploits during WW2 particularly at the final stages in the Pacific. A
  17. In late December 2019, Hobby Boss is to release a 1/144th Shaanxi Y-8 - ref. 83902 Source: http://www.hobbyboss.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=149&l=en V.P.
  18. Greetings all Here's my attempt at the widely-documented Fw190D-9, 'Blue 12', surrendered at Furth in May 1945. The Hobby Boss kit is generally excellent and a lot of fun to build, but I still managed to mess it up in places Paints are from Vallejo and Mig. Markings are Montex masks, with the kit decals being used for the 'E9', the octane triangles and W.Nr. There is also a 'guest appearance' from the Tamiya ground starter cart, which I threw together a few days ago (that's also a great little item). Managed to get some pics this morning before the thunder storms (which are n

  20. Just made a start on this Hobby Boss 1/48 Ta 152 C-11. The 152 'C' was not thought to have reached front line service before the end of WW2 (at least one commentator believes that two of them did see action before the end of hostilities), but even if they did see action then it would have been very limited. I've also got the Italeri/Dragon 1/48 'H' model in the pile, but I'd like to see how this turns out first, before making a start on that. So this is almost - but not quite - a 'what if'. Needless to say, decal and unit options are limited for the Ta 152 in general, but espe
  21. HobbyBoss is to release in late June 2017 a 1/72nd Douglas C-47 Skytrain kit - ref. 87264 Source: http://www.hobbyboss.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=88 V.P.
  22. US M911 C-HET With M747 Heavy Equipment Semi-Trailer (85519) 1:35 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Any army requires transporters for their heavy equipment, and in the US this is abbreviated to HET, which stands for Heavy Equipment Transport, so you hear the use of the phrase applied to a number of heavy-haulers. Tank transport is particularly heavy, with your average M1 Abrams weighing in around 60 tons. The M911 tractor unit was a product of the 70s and was initially paired with a trailer that had previously been used with the M746 that the M911 replaced. During
  23. Hello guys, here's my latest model, Hobby Boss's Mirage IIICJ with the markings of the Fuerza Aérea Argentina. I used Condor Decals decals for the insignia.
  24. When all is up in the air, concentrate on something familiar and re-assuring - like a Sea Hawk model! This is the 1/72 Hobby Boss kit, with Modeldecal transfers to correct some anomalies in the kit markings. At least I hope they "correct" ! What a marvelous little kit this is, even allowing for the age of the Airfix one that I am more familiar with. Its only real issue is the intake vane arrangement, which is too prominent. I did cut this one's vanes back, but clearly not far enough. I have 3 more in the stash to build and looking forwa
