  1. Hi all... At the urging of the friend @Moa, I decided to rescue a scratch that I had archived for four years and get down to work again with him, and publish it here on Britmodeller. I hope it is in the interest of the community. A brief history. The former Stag Lane aerodrome, if we are located throughout the '20s, was undoubtedly synonymous with De Havilland. But in the previous decade another story ran in those grounds. In the context of the first months of the WWI, the confirmation of the aeroplane as a new military "tool", and the growing need for pilo
  2. Hello... I greet the community from Argentina. I see that I joined Britmodeller in 2015, but I never wrote anything... I can assure you that I'm not a ghost! ^ ^ I am a lover of everything that has wings produced between 1919 and 1939... I am also very tempted by the WWI planes, and the beautiful curves of any time (of some planes too). Although the interwar world is usually silvery with some well-documented colors, being a ghost can sometimes be very convenient at the moment of interpreting lost livery in b/w. I embrace this hobby from the scratch, drawings, and som
  3. Hi all, Here is my latest build, the 1/48 Bristol Bulldog kit from Lindberg. This kit traces its lineage right back to 1968, which makes the moulds 52 years old…! Extensive modifications were made to the kit, including reworking all of the external surfaces (the kit comes with horrible textured fabric surfaces all over and raised panel lines), scratchbuilding the cockpit (the kit cockpit is non-existent), correcting the underside of the nose, correcting all of the nose panels, adding the chin radiator, adding the under-belly panel and circular under-fuselage fairing, re
  4. It's been a while since I posted any progress on modelling work, due mostly to six weeks contract work away from home in London, followed by just over three weeks vacation in Japan. On my return I contracted a chest infection and just felt yuk for a while!. I'm well on the mend now and although I have a handful of projects on the go, I decided I needed a small new project to get my mojo going again. Some constant nagging gentle encouragement from the member for Bury St Edmunds, aka @Courageous, also had a part to play .................. and you will be pleased to know Stuart, I have also done
  5. Hello everyone. I'm still new here..., so here I'm trying my second message. These are my works in progress. For now, all suspended in different stages of construction, for some error that requires a major correction, for boredom, or because the stage that begins requires special attention, especially the development of engines... Anyway, now I am dedicated to some works that occupy me all the time, so necessarily there they will be waiting for the best moment to be finished. Artigau 'Coronel Pringles' ... it was an airplane of Argentine manufacture that f
  6. So as the two current builds reach the painting and waiting phase, I've moved on to the next attempt in stash reduction. Now, biplanes have always presented me with a bit of a problem, I've always struggled to get that top wing balancing properly and sturdily enough. So what better way to face this fear than to attempt building one a few most of those present in my stash. Since four are matchbox, I know from my previous fury build that someone's actually thought construction through and the central struts will be well placed and held be other parts. Since the others are Airfix and Frogspawn, I
  7. Hello fellow modellers, I hope you are having a pleasant weekend. I am building a 1/72nd scale Amodel Polikarpov I-16 Type 5. Unfortunately something strange happened to the canopy. It is no longer clear, it has gone a milky white and is now opaque. I live in Queensland Australia and had stored it in a little parts tin. I feel maybe humidity or some other factor related to heat caused this change, as it hasn't happened to canopies stored in normal kit boxes or zip-lock bags. It has probably been cooked! I have tried emailing Amodel and they cannot provide a canopy, only complete kits. I t

    Has anyone built the Contrail kits such as the Hinadi,Hyderabad,Virginia, etc. Anything i should look out for ? john
  9. Hi, have been slowly working on the CMR 1/72 scale DH 9A, and I’m finally getting close to decaling. The plane I’m going to model is the E-828 “A” of the 27 Squadron in India in 1927, and I’m wondering if the 27 Squadron has been known to use any underwing serials or letters during this period? Have looked through the Datafiles, the Profile on DH9A, and some other sources, but can’t find any clear pictures showing them. In some pics I could faintly imagine seeing the individual plane letter, but really hard to tell for sure. I’d be really grateful for any
  10. Yesterday I was possessed from the insane idea to explore the vacum formed stash and I found an old 1/72 scale Contrail Supermarine Scapa. Many years have passed since I assembled my last one but this kind of kit remain still my first love. I cannot face the resin kit without inconvenience while the vacs still give me strong emotions. Unfortunately the vacs companies on the market are now very few, But coming back to the kit I made the first little boring step, preparing the pieces. Now I have to plan the "interior design" and this is the real endeavour because What I was able to fid in the w
  11. Hobby Boss's new catalogue shows lots of lovely interwar tanks. http://scalemodels.ru/news/9588-katalog-HobbyBoss-2016-2017.html I need to stock up on more pipes, iron and brass paint, and gears; so many to convert to steam tanks!
  12. Hello! Here is my finished SM.79 Sparviero. The construction took half a year, actually I was tired at the end. As usual the Italeri's painting guide was false, and the camo. does not match on the two only shots what I've found about the 28-11, however are taken from the same side. So my camo are 'something like that'. I had the chanse to paint it to the 2 tona camo, but I didnt liked it. The flash light may show the colors lighter than these actually are. And here it is: And finaly, You can read the project in this topic. In some words, I
  13. Hello, I've been bitten by the bomber bug and wonder what kits are available in injected plastic and in 1-72. These are the types that I know about, can you add more?

  14. Avia BH-22 Czechoslovak Training Aircraft 1:72 Fly The BH-21 was a single-seat fighter aircraft designed by Pavel Beneš and Miroslav Hajn of Czech aircraft manufacturer Avia. Entering service in 1925, the aircraft became the mainstay of the Czech Air Force in the interwar years. A number of examples were license built in Belgium and used by the Belgian Air Force as well. Powered by a 304 HP V8 engine developed by Hispano Suiza, the BH-21 was capable of 152 mph and could achieve a service ceiling of over 18,000ft. Armament was comprised of a pair of .303 inch Vicke
