  1. 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
  2. And my dad started the next seaplane. Don´t know which scheme yet. DSC_0007 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr cockpit in progress, RLM02 applied DSC_0008 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0009 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0010 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0011 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  3. My second build(of recent times) is a MH47E SOA chinook in 1/72 scale and made by Italeri. I got this from my folks for Christmas(beats socks any day of the week) and after completing the Merkava i immediately got straight onto this. Finally after 14 days of hands on work, i had the chinook completed! Its not been the most enjoyable build i have done due to parts not lining up and parts easily broken or lost, but worst of all was cutting out a whole bottom section to replace with another, when the manufacturer could have just had it in the first place! It nearly kind of broke
  4. Here is my first kit of the year, finally! It is Italeri's 1:72 Lockheed F-104A-20-LO Starfighter. It represents 4221 (s/n 56-0799 - ex-USAF), of the 3rd Tactical Fighter Wing/8th Tactical Fighter Squadron, Republic of China AF, Ching Chuan Kang Air Base, Taiwan, 1961. This was the old Esci kit re-released by Italeri. It was a pretty basic kit which I decided to build very much OOB. All of the parts needed cleaning up due to some flash, ejection pins and sink marks. Fit wasn't bad but nearly all joins needed work and in some places there were steps to deal with. I on
  5. Hi Pals, I finish working with this model. I have seen that it is a fairly simple kit, without major problems for assembly, with acceptable instructions. As a bonus, you can make several versions, just before the Paladin appears. Although this is an old kit, modestly I think that you could still get a good result, (I am reasonably happy with it), the only thing that gave me headaches were the main pieces of the turret and helmet, as they were crooked , I imagine that by the passage of time, and the worst, the tracks, which when they were already in place, split, where the hardest (in
  6. Hello again My minisub compulsion strikes again! I have another itty bitty sub for your entertainment. The Italeri SLC 'Maiale'. A simple uncomplicated build that amused me for a couple of weeks. We'll start with Tony and Emilio showing off their diving suits. The figures are very well sculpted and the suits are just black rubber dry suits. I understand the the rebreathers were also used by the Royal Navy after a few examples had been captured. I am assured that Italians are not quite so orange in real life. There must be s
  7. Alongside the single-seat 1983 Italeri A-4M, I will be building the 1998 two-seat OA-4M variant, which shared as much of the A-4M tooling as as was possible. Markings are included for two USMC H&Ms (Headquarters and Maintenance) aircraft.
  8. Another placeholder. This kit was first released in 1983, but it was a few years before I bought it, in what seems to be the original box style: I will probably build the more colourful of the two subjects (VMA-331), as opposed to the toned-down aircraft from VMA-214 "Black Sheep" on the front cover. The VMA-331 aircraft has the early fin tip. There is nothing supplied for the outer wing pylons, so I will rustle something up from the spares box:
  9. During a discussion on here the other week about this kit, I promised to post up some pics of mine. Turned out that I had taken some pics of this and a couple of other older builds back in the summer which I haven't posted yet, so fortunately have some decent images of it since I am unable to take any at the moment due to the weather. This is originally an Italeri kit, but this one is a Revell AG rebox from about 15 years ago. I bought it at the time and probably started it about five years later. However I messed up the bonnet as when gluing it to the hinges, the polystyrene ce
  10. Hello Everybody, this is my latest offering, the Thunderbolt II or 'Warthog'. I wanted to build this one just because it was different and I wanted to attempt the colour scheme. It was built straight out of the box with just the addition of a pilot. I made work for myself because I wanted to display it flying, and obviously the wheels do not fully retract, also I decided to show it with the flaps / air brakes closed and that went horribly wrong ! I ended up virtually rebuilding that part of both wings. top and bottom with plasticard, in fact the whole thing was retrieved from the bin twi
  11. 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
  12. Another one for my Falklands War collection - 1/72 Westland Wessex HU.5, XS486, 848. Naval Air Squadron, Flight A, RFA Regent,Operation Corporate, May-June 1982 r. Italeri kit + PE parts from Eduard. Wessex XS486 (produced 1964, serial WA160) served in the Falklands as a machine to transport equipment and people between ships and units on the islands. After the end of the war in June 1982, it took part in Operation Keyhole (aboard HMS Endurance), the purpose of which was to retake of the South Sandwich and South Georgia islands. Most of the XS486's fuselage has survived to this day
  13. I find myself in a bit of a quandary. When I started this GB I intended to build 3 planes, but have so far finished 5 with 2 more at the painting stage and there sre still almost 2 months left before the GB ends! Normally that would not be a problem as I would be involved in at least 2 and sometimes even 3 GB simultaneously but there is something of an hiatus at the moment - I will start one plane in the Gulf GB at the weekend and another in the Africa GB next month but the lockdown means I am building more quickly than usual, and so whilst I am waiting to do a bit of airbrushing, and then fo
  14. Back in the more innocent days of the 1980s, when East and West had thousands of nuclear missiles they’d thankfully never use pointing at each other, the USAF had no less than six squadrons of the brilliant A-10 based in East Anglia. These were a regular sight as pairs or fours of Warthogs flew low over the countryside, brightening up many a family holiday in those halcyon days for a young aircraft enthusiast. A-10A 80-0206 was assigned to the 81st TFW’s 92nd TFS, and based at Bentwaters, not far from Snape Maltings and Rendlesham Forest. It is almost certainly one I would have photo
  15. Hi. I always liked the delta wing configuration of the Mirage 2000 and wanted to build one. Been 1/72nd my preferred scale there are not many kits to choose from and they are all quite old. This Italeri one was released in 2016 for the 25th anniversary of the Gulf War, but is just a re-box of an old 1992 one and it really shows its age!. Besides the odd elongated shape (the actual aircraft is a bit shorter) it had many incorrect panel lines and missing detail. The main error was the lines in the radome, that I filled up and sanded. I've added some scratch details as well as the rivets. F
  16. Hello my friends.I present you my latest finished model.A mig-21 I built as a present for a friend of mine.The kit represents an ex Iraqi mig-21bis stuck in Yugoslavia when the desert strom 1 broke out.Around 1991-1992 it was flown with our national insignia.According to all the available reference material the weathering had to be at a minimum and the paintjob was brand new so that is why I coated it in semiglos varnish. Enjoy the photos
  17. I've been on a major lockdown Hawk binge this year so far, with more to come. This one is a heavily modified T-45C Goshawk based on the Italeri kit, plus Caracal decals for the eyecatching Redhawks scheme worn by a US Navy/Marines aircraft of VT-21 at NAS Kingsville, Texas. I bought the decals to do one as a Strike Test aircraft supporting the F-35 programme, but this was just too good to miss. Main changes were the underfuselage strake, new wing tips, new tailplane tips and the addition of full length Slats. I also dropped the flaps. Things I didn't do - raise the fin/rudde
  18. I was "503'd" when I posted the original and it now seems I have made a duplicate - please ignore!
  19. My first Italeri model and it’s a SAAB Viggen. A little research and I had my doubts about this kit with it being an ESCI moulding with tales of bad fits, poor detail, and wrong tail etc. Having made it it came together better then I thought. The kit has both tail versions for the JA and AJ and with raised panels on a relatively old kit the details are lacking but it’s not the worst. All the parts did need a good rework for rough edges etc. Made OOB and brush painted. Model did need a lot of additional research for colour confirmations, positioning etc as instructions are not the
  20. A close inspection from the soon to be released 1/32nd Italeri's Mirage IIIC sprues pics (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234975571-132-dassault-mirage-iiic-by-italeri-box-artdecals-release-late-september-early-october/?p=2112443) show clearly the typical MIIIE wheel brakes as an option. A new variant in view? Time will tell. V.P.
  21. Hello all Today I would like to present one of my older models, the DUKW from Italeri. I tried to simulate beach dust and OD faded by salt water. Unfortunately, details like the dashboard are (still) missing (decals got lost) and some things are not correct like the slits in the side rails. These things I will improve in the future, because I got the Tankograd 6003 Technical Manual for christmas I also got a second kit from Airfix - two are better than one Have fun! MD
  22. 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
  23. My second lockdown completion and another Wessex, this time a HAS3, it is the 1/72 Italeri kit with the Rotorcraft correction and External fuel tank and pylon from Air Graphics, markings came from the kit and various Modeldecal sheets some of the markings are a best guess as HMS Londons Wessex 3 seems to have been a bit camera shy and I could only find two very poor pictures of her including one that showed the name 'Cockney Rebel' but I'm happy with it _IMG9032_1 by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr _IMG9029_1 by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr _IMG903
  24. Italeri is to release a new tool 1/48th Lockheed-Martin F-35B Lightning II kit - ref. 2810 Not a bad news considering the only other available 1/48th F-35B kit is the Kitty Hawk one. Now we just need a better F-35C. Source: https://www.italeri.com/uploads/news/AY8p8Mc4VebT1GVJ5SVhR0wRFuvMlyG6nbu5dgSD.pdf Box art V.P.
  25. 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.
