  1. After completing my Tamiya Spitfire Mk.V tropical and with a view to continue getting me “back up to speed” on the modelling front I’ve delved into the stash and decided on this… HobbyBoss 1:48 Brazilian EMB-314 Super Tucano Having watched a YouTube video by Becker’s Models on his build… https: //www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMJsGOZ3fTI I decided to get the resin pilots he used, I don’t think I’ll be doing her “wheels up” but I liked stuffing a pilot in the Spitfire and as HobbyBoss don’t supply any I’ve order these KASL Hobby figures…
  2. I'm going to build the hobbyboss A-6E intruder, I'll be building it a a tram version that took part in operation desert storm with the tan and sand scheme, I've got 2 aires gruea-7 seats and eduard A-6E tram interior, and the A-6E tram exterior kit and masks the decals are by hi decal line, not sure how I'll have the wings as yet, Glynn

Kit - Hobbyboss Paint - AK & SMS lacquers Decals - kit Extras - Aires resin ejection seat, drop tanks & missiles from spares AMD Mirage IIICJ 119 Squadron IDF/AF Tel Nof Airbase Summer 1969 One of my all-time favourite aircraft from the the original Airfix 'Dogfight Double' box-art to my tiny die-cast toy when I was very young and on to 'The Aeronauts' TV series then finally seeing them 'in person' throughout the 1980's & 90's... I absolu
  4. This was my first Hobby Boss kit. I started it in earnest in the fall of 2012 and hit the first “snag” soon after. I had to repaint the seat several times to get the effect I wanted and stopped construction for several weeks. Then I took up the gauntlet again. The plastic in this kit was sort of odd; in some places it seems quite soft but it also seemed very brittle at times too. I broke several parts just removing them from sprues, and this sure wasn’t my first rodeo. The fore and aft sections of the fuselage presented the next challenge. There was a terrible fit between the two sections. A

  7. Hi all, Just completed this Hobbyboss sd kfz 222 - built OOB. Nicely detailed interior which is completely wasted if you close the vehicle up, as I did . Lightly weathered with some oils and pigments, but that's about it. I haven't built much armour, but am keen to understand where I could improve, so don't hold back
  8. Hello, Here goes another little bird in 72nd F-5E Tiger II Adversary - VFC-13 Fighting Saints Fighter Squadron Composite (VFC-13) Saints is a US Navy fighter squadron that provides adversary training for U.S. Navy air wings at NAS Fallon, Nevada. The unit's mix of 23 F-5E, F-5F and F-5N aircraft are all painted in a variety of colorful adversary schemes of blue, gray, or brown camouflage.

  9. That's South East Asian, most Skyhawks were seaworthy out of the crate From wikipedia: Due to the declining relationship between Indonesia and the Soviet Union, there was a lack of spare parts for military hardware supplied by the Communist Bloc. Soon, most of them were scrapped. The Indonesian Air Force (TNI-AU) acquired A-4 Skyhawks to replace its Il-28 Beagles and Tu-16 Badgers in a covert operation with Israel... The A-4 served the Indonesian Air Force from 1982 until 2003. Take one Hobbyboss 1/48 A-4E, add in some Airies resin for the Israeli extended exhaust and
  10. Greetings all, This rather large box somehow appeared on my doorstep this week - how these things happen I shall never understand... I love the 8th Air Force and the B-17 and B-24 in particular, so decided to have a go at the recent HobbyBoss release of the B-24, or the 'crate the B-17 was delivered in' if you spoke a B-17 crew. Not very fair really, especially when you consider it could fly farther, faster and with a greater bombload than the Fort. The kit looks fairly simple in places as has been discussed at length elsewhere, but that's just what I'm after at the mom
  11. Hi folk's, I thought it only right as I'm building an Aussie Beaufighter to pay tribute to New Zealand with an entry. I have a set of mint decals from a past Frog build for the Corsair so as I was ordering something from KK I popped Hobbyboss easy kit on too it's only a fiver and is actually a great little kit.Photos ASAP.
  12. Seeing as most of you are building stuff from the coalition I thought I would give you all something to shoot at or drop things on. I need this to be a fairly quick build due to other GB commitments so that means 1/72 scale and that drastically reduces my list of possibilities, no bad thing as it helps with focusing the mind. I ended up going for a HobbyBoss Mi-24 Hind D which I have had for a while. Now while this isn't as accurate as the Zvezda kit (hasn't got the anti-torque kink to the fuselage after the cockpit, just like all the other Hind kits) it looks good, has decent detailing, comes
  13. Another lynx, this time a Hobbyboss kit. This one will be a normal HAS.2, with a twist that will come apparent in the a couple days. As with all my recent lynx, I have detailed the interior a little bit. I made milliput soundproofing along with some detail to the seats. I kept the Cyclic (No collective in this kit) away from the observers position and tried adding something of a radar screen to the console, and some overhead console. I used some evergreen strips to try and make the door rails a bit larger like the actual lynx, although i could make them a bit thicker. O
  14. Hello to all of you.Here is one model I built OOB.It is a nice model to work on.I used tamiya paints and caracal model decals for the markings. Regards,Dragan
  15. Hobby Boss is to release in late January 2020 a 1/18th Messerschmitt Me.262 Schwalbe kit - ref. 81805 Source: http://www.hobbyboss.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=151&l=en V.P.
  16. In 2021 Hobby Boss is to release 1/48th CH-47 Chinook kits. - ref. 81772 - Boeing CH-47A Chinook - ref. 81773 - Boeing CH-47D Chinook More variants to follow? Most probably. To be followed. Source: http://www.moxingfans.com/m/view.php?aid=7201&pageno=1 V.P.
  17. As this one will not meet today's deadline, I'm going to keep working on it in this group build. The main airframe is at the decalling stage but weapons need painting, the rear cockpit displays need to be built (this particular aircraft was a dual control model) and the geometry of the main undercarriage legs needs some thought. Mike
  18. Hello Friends, This is a Build of the HobbyBoss Sukhoi-30 MKK in 1:48 size. I build this kit into a Su-30MKI in service with the Indian Air Force. The build is OOB with required additions or modifications. The mods include : 1. Making the LERX - Leading Edge Extensions alongwith the canards. I make this using plastic card and epoxy putty. Once the putty dried I sanded the thing to shape. The panel lines were rescribed with reference to the line drawings which are available on the internet. 2. I modify the tails as the ones used by the MKI are diff
  19. Dear Colleagues Enclosed is my last model of 2020. A year when society actually encouraged us to stay indoors and get down to serious modelling, not that we needed much persuading. In truth the BA-10 was more of an armoured lorry than fully functioning armoured car. A modest 50 HP was powering two rear axles only. On the plus side this was probably the most powerfully armed armoured car of the period and ran on solid tyres. The few that survived Operation Barbarossa probably had their small moment of glory in the November winter counter offensive in front of Moscow.
  20. My last work for 2020/ My goal was to do a Heller nose transplant on the Hobbyboss fuselage. Finally no real problem, everything fits easily. Here are the pics : The base real plane : the kit : one big issue anyway : the canopy...i had to vacuform another one, and i made many many tries before succeding... enjoy.
  21. In 2020-2021, HobbyBoss is to release 1/72nd Grumman F8F Bearcat kits. - ref. 87267 - Grumman F8F-1 Bearcat - ref. 87268 - Grumman F8F-1BBearcat - ref. 87269 - Grumman F8F-2 Bearcat V.P.
  22. So hopefully this will be a fairly short KUTA build. I originally started it back in the "Journey's End" GB - build thread can be found here. Since it's last outing the window masks went on and it got a coat of Alclad II Black Primer (or maybe it was Vallejo, it's a long time since I did it). At that point she was left to gather dust for some time. So after rescue it's been given a coat of Alclad II Gloss Black Base, but unfortunately this didn't come out as expected... As can hopefully be seen - there's a lot of texturing, now I'm not entirely sure

  24. Season's greetings all This is my take on Johannes Steinhoff's Me 262 'white 6', while he was flying with JV 44 at Munchen-Riem towards the end of the war. In April 1945, his aircraft hit a badly-repaired bomb crater on take-off, which damaged his main gear and threw the aircraft off line. In his own words, his aircraft was going 'too slow to get airborne and too fast to abort' and he received severe burns in the subsequent crash, which put him out of the war and in hospital for some time afterwards. He recovered eventually to play a leading role in the new Luftwaffe, as well a
