  1. My entry for this group build, the Martin B-57B Canberra operated by the 8th Bomb Squadron out of Bien Hoa AB and then Da Nang AB in 1964/65. It didn't take the Canberra long to become well-known on the tactical scene and they picked up the call sign 'Yellow Bird' based upon the squadron colours (the sister13th BS were 'Red Bird'). I am building the 1/72nd Italeri B-57B Canberra OOB and it will be finished in aluminium. I will be using the decals from the kit. I will also 'ghost' build a second B-57B which will be in the later SEA camouflage scheme coded as 'PQ'. I am looking for a straight f
  2. Hi everybody, back to a propeller build and in 1/48, after a few jets in 1/72. At the beginning of WWII, the Regia Aeronautica acquired a number of JU 87 B-2 to equip its dive bomber wings; these were nicknamed "picchiatelli" (plural, the singular is "picchiatello") by the Italian pilots, referring to its role (dive bomber in Italian translates into "bombardiere in picchiata") but also to the fact that "picchiatello" means "slightly mad", 'cause you had to be like that for the job ... . I'll provide more info as I go, meanwhile here's the boxart the doc
  3. Hello, everyone ... a quick shout out to anyone that was following the original thread to my 806 build, ... well, it's done - well as done as it's ever going to be. There is a myriad of details that could be fettled with, and yes lots of prototypicality issues. But this was only ever an exercise in building the Italeri kit, and in my case using it as a means of illustrating an amusing backstory that I'd concocted. Apologies are perhaps in order because the photo's I include are literally just drive by shots taken to let my head know that it's all done, finished and I can guilt free
  4. It may be strange, but in my "Falklands War model collection" Sea Harrier is still missing! That's why I decided to make two at once. To make it more interesting, they will be models from two different manufacturers - Airfix and Italeri. They are most popular kits of SHAR in 1/72 scale on the market (so far) and are well known, but I`ll try to compare them on this occasion. Airfix kit is from 2011, meanwhile, the Italeri is a rebox of the old ESCI kit, which comes from 1983! It would be logical if Airfix was better, but as you know - it is not. So let`s see both kits.
  5. A couple days ago I started working on the Italeri S.79, and before I knew it, I got this far already. It's a simple kit with not that many parts, but still reasonably detailed. I sprayed the interior with Tamiya XF-20 and used some of that Tamiya panel line wash. The instrument panel is just a decal, and since you won't be able to see much inside the cockpit when it's all closed up and all, I'm fine with that. I don't bother with seatbelts either. And now with the fuselage closed and the lower wing in place. It'll probably be ready for paint b
  6. Hello everyone, I'm new here and my English is poor. In order not to bore me, I start with a workshop. This is not my first model, I have already built a few. I like Italian machines very much. Model MC.205 "Veltro" in 1:48 scale with a few accessories.
  7. As follow on to the 2019 thread. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235050263-italeri-2019-catalog-new-reissue-repop-rebox-etc-in-2019/ The Italeri 2020 catalog should be available in late January. Wait and see. Announced in January 2019 and expected in January 2020 is a re-edition from the Fujimi 1/72nd North American F-86F Sabre "MiG Killer" + Super Decal - ref. 1426 Source: https://nowosci.plastikowe.pl/aktualnosci/zapowiedzi-italeri-grudzien-2019/ Box art V.P.
  8. Hello to all of you good people on this forum.I present you the Italeri YF-22 that I finished last week.I rescribed all the panel lines,added home made seatbelts hud and the pittotube.Painted in Ak real colors.I hope you will like this one.
  9. As previously posted in the 'What have you bought recently' section of the best area on Britmodelller another Transit is on the bench and is undergoing surgery, indeed as usual most of it will not end up being used or not being cut into pieces The most important tools are on the box and have been weilded at the big bits already. I decided on the Police version for a change and thought there may be some items that could be used on other projects. I'll also be turning into a Mk.2 Phase 1 which requires mods to the grille, lights and indicators. If any Transit officianados know of any other difer
  10. Having finished my Tamiya Chieftain it has been sugested that my next project should be the Italeri M32 which is in the stash. If anyone knows of anything I need to be aware of please shout out. Box and sprue pictures as soon as I liberate said kit from the loft insulation. Thanks for looking in - work starts soon Roger
  11. An MTO GB without a Savoia-Marchetti 79? Don't think so! We must give all those Spits and P-40s something to shoot at, right? Anyways: had my eye on this one for a while and this GB fits nicely. Got some extras for it: I predict some cutting and splicing is going to take place... As the title says, this one will be the Panterellia based 278 Squadriglia one: Here's the original, seen on Panterellia. The fortress like structure was built against one of the hill slopes on the airfield.
  12. Italeri is to release a new tool 1/32nd MRCA Tornado GR.4 kit in 2018-2020 - ref. 2513 Source: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235015790-news-italeri-2017/ V.P.
  13. When you're up against deadlines and have a bench full of incomplete GB models, the only sensible option to get going again is to start another one. I don't currently have a completed 109 in the collection, so this is a chance to rectify that. This Italeri kit is a rebox of the Academy kit that was a re-pop of the Hobbycraft kit from the early 90s. I've built a Hobbycraft 109G so I'm hoping that will stand me in good stead for this one. I'd bookmarked the kit because of the markings but wasn't mad keen to get one at full price. Jadlam came to the rescue - they had it in their clea
  14. Here's the latest model off the bench - Italeri's 1/32nd F-35A Lightning II. This was built out of the box, with the exception of Eduard's seat belt and cockpit set. The kit itself goes together really well, with the only filler being needed on the fuselage to wing join which wasn't the best. There's lots of nicely moulded detail in the landing gear and weapons bays, which with some careful painting comes up well. The most time consuming part of the build was the painting process - it took hours, and hours, and hours, and hours... you get the idea... of masking the RAM
  15. Hi all Moving straight on from my Eduard Fw190 A4 build onto the latest delivery from Mr.Postman, the Italeri rebox of the Hasegawa Typhoon. I haven't done a WiP before so not sure how exciting this one will be but i'll try to keep progress ticking along- I state my intent now! To be fair though the small part number should help speed things along. We'll see how I get on with the infamous fuselage inserts- seen a few different ways of tackling this but watch this space. I've also a few extra goodies to help with the final look
  16. #25/2020 Here´s my dad´s latest model, the Italeri B Stuka. The kit is ok but has its issues. Built oob with HAD Decals, EZ line for the antenna wire, painted with a selfmixed RLM65, Tamiya XF-82 Ocean Grey, XF-5 Flat Green and XF-10 Flat Brown. With previously built Stukas my dad did some extra work and simulated the inner canopy frames with masking tape. This time he did it without and painted all frames with the exterior colours. Build thread here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235079876-getting-trained148-junkers-ju87b-2-royal-hungarian-airforce/
  17. And here´s my dad´s next project. After the Hungarians recieved D Stukas, the B models were used for training and transitioning. DSC_0005 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0014 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0015 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  18. Hi, Having built my first Hurricane in the BoB GB, I'm so happy with that model that I'm keen to build some more. Troy Smith provided me with some good advice during my first Hurricane build and I'm aware of some of the weaknesses of the Italeri kit. I'm going to build this one now before I become too knowledgeable in Hurricanes. I'm not going to attempt to correct the model and the markings will be the well-known 17 Sqn aircraft with the "Popeye" nose-art. Cheers, Stefan.
  19. Not content with the Matador and Fw190 multi build I joined the VSTOL group build with the intention of building the prototype V22 as the Italeri kit needs correcting to make a decent MV22. Since I missed the GB deadline I will move the build here. And this is where it sits at the moment
  20. I don't build cars very often (and it shows - I hear you cry) so I decided to treat this one a little differently. As its moulded in nicely coloured plastic, I decided to build it without painting it. I'd imagine that this is how Italeri intended young modellers approach the kit. I may not be young any more, but I am young at heart Thanks for looking.
  21. This is another kit I built way back in 1981, when both subject matter and kit manufacturer would have been very exotic to me. To the best of my knowledge, this kit was never upgraded with "hard" tracks under ESCI/ERTL. More than that, the vinyl tracks are actually "Matchbox" style, meaning no glue required. Italian AFV colours are something I have no real knowledge of, so I'll just have to muddle through.
  22. This was a birthday gift from my wife. Possibly a record in recent times for getting built within two months of acquisition and not suffering a diversion into the stash! On opening the box I was surprised and pleased to see the decals were for un-PC Rothmans rather than the boxart “Racing”. The real car is just down the road at Beaulieu if you want to go and see what its supposed to look like. . The kit itself is somewhat ancient, originally by Esci and having been reboxed by both Revell and Italeri over the years. Now I love cars with massive flared arches as much as the next ch
  23. I've made a start on a new model which will be something I never really do - a diorama of sorts but really it's two model aircraft. I've had to depart from my preferred 1/48 scale for this for various reasons but let's simplify it down to kit availability. The ultimate aim is to try to recreate a scene like this: I expect the readership is well familiar with the USAF's Combat Search And Rescue (CSAR) efforts which really came to maturity during the Vietnam war. The Sikorsky S-61R model in USAF service as the CH-3 was modified with long range tanks, refuelling prob
  24. Hi, This is a project that has been at the back of my mind for well over 20 years, and now the moderators have kindly cleared it, then it might, stress might get done, and then again maybe not as you will see from my later posts as I seem to have aquired a second kit that might not need much work doing! I bought this 1986 kit back in the early 1990's, and it went into my stash. A few years later I saw the Film BAT*21 with Gene Hackman and got the kit back out with a view to building an EW one as seen in the film, but then found that the Airwaves conversion set was out
  25. hello fellow modellers, I want to share some progress of this project. so far it has been quite fun and enjoyable to build. I found very useful this post by Pappy (from 2008!) here's my first WIP
