  1. I purchased the 2014 rebox of the '72 scale Italeri F-5N Tiger ll as I think the aircraft looks great in aggressor colours. The box schemes also give an option for a Swiss F-5 which are also use for dissimilar air combat training. Buried away I had an old Airfix F-5E kit that I'd made years ago. I cleaned this up and repainted it in the Swiss scheme. F-5N Tiger ll US Nvy VFC-13 "Saints" NAS Fallon Nevada 2012 F-5N Tiger ll Swiss Air Force Fliegerstaffel 19 2008
  2. Two Seat Harriers TAV-8B and Harrier T.2 Both of these were built in the early 1990s. Both are 1/72 scale. The TAV-8B is the Italeri kit built to represent Bu No 162747 coded SD 626 of the US Naval Air Test Centre which took part in the 1988 Farnborough show. The RAF machine is the Heller / Humbrol 'Bobcat' kit with quite a few modifications to represent XW267 / T of 233 OCU based at Wittering in the early 1980s
  3. Be gentle with me. First model built in over 20 years. Baby footsteps up to the stirrups at the momentn let alone getting back in the saddle. Look forward to your input. Colours not perfect. Be it in reality or through the camera lens.
  4. Hi Pals, al last I finished the model, and IHMO, I think it has been to my liking. I was pleasantly surprised, to see that even being such an ancient mold, still has a very good level of quality (I think even better than some models Tamiya of the time, and that time, were twice as expensive or so. ..) Once finished, you see a pretty powerful tank, a whole "Heavy metal", precursor of the "beasts" that would follow. On the other hand, the kit has a fairly simple assembly, no major problems to solve, if you want to OOB, although I have had two delicate enough, the hull and turret were twisted,and it was difficult to bring them together, and the tracks that are degraded by the passage of time and broke. Perhaps now come of better plastic quality. Here is a link to the WIP section, in case you want to see it. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235004000-the-olde-general-m47-patton-135-italeri-item265/ Thanks to all who have followed the assembly and finishing kit, and have supported and encouraged me with your suggestions and comments. Regards to all Pals And some shots on detail....
  5. A group build on A FB page got me started looking at the stash & eyeing a TR-1 kit I picked up a while back. I saw a U-2R take off & display at Mildenhall in the 80s (could well be 85) so I needed to make her a serial number who had at least visited the UK, even if they were never officially assigned to RAF Alconbury. Just to prove a point a U-2S visited a Mildenhall today. Anyway I got the HAS out at the weekend and tried to get some shots as the sun went down & cast long shadows. Hope you like them. And a couple on her own
  6. C-130J Engine Nacelles (BRL48123 for Italeri) 1:48 Brengun The large scale Hercules from Italeri has been around in many guises over the years, with the C-130J having popped up this side of the new millennium and most recently in 2014. It's a kit that is of a certain age now, but as there's fat chance of anyone issuing a new one in 1:48 scale, we have to take it as it comes with some elements that are less accurate than others. The J is the latest model of the Herc, and the only one still in production with upgraded Rolls-Royce turboprop engines and sabre-like Dowty props differentiating it from the previous marks externally. Those aren't the only upgrades, as the whole avionics package has been updated with new cockpit and countermeasures, plus improved range and performance. The J in kitform has a few challenges, one of which is the engine nacelles. This set is designed to address that, with resin parts that can far exceed the capabilities of plastic in terms of finesse and detail. The set arrives in a cardboard box that is sealed by its label and inside are found twelve large parts in grey resin, plus another twelve small parts in groups of three on the same pouring block. It's a Herk. In 1:48. So it's large. The parts are large too as you'd expect, and each nacelle comes in two parts with the front separate from the body so that a very crisp and thin leading edge lip can be achieved on the upper intake as well as the lower chin-scoop. The parts have a little engraved line where you should cut, and the front slides inside the lip of the nacelle, with the new prop boss slotting neatly into the front, allowing you to choose your preferred orientation. You'll notice that there are no blades included with the set, as Brengun consider the 6 blades on each engine to be up to the task – that's 32 - no 24 blades in total Chris (in-joke). The remaining parts are two antennae for under each nacelle, and a small cooling vent for the rear of the lower intake, which conveniently hides the blanked off exit. To install the engines on the wing, just remove 2.25mm from the inner nacelle roots and glue them in place with CA or epoxy glue as you see fit. Incidentally, you may notice the smaller parts have little extensions at the top of each high-point. These are bubble "traps" that should be cut off before you apply the parts, and are used to avoid inconvenient bubbles in delicate parts. Conclusion Well cast with only one or two bubbles in trailing edges, but these are easy to fix with some styrene rod or filler. The low part count is a boon, and everything fits together neatly, as you can see from the example above, which is only held together with a piece of Blutak behind the spinner. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  7. 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 the curve), although I was able to rectify it quite well. I have chosen to make a version in Vietnam, because although the kit does not bring that option, I saw some photos (which I include) about this, I liked it a lot. Thanks to my box of spare parts, it was not a problem. I thank as always all fellows of the forum who have accompanied me in the assembly process and encouraged me with their comments to improve / continue. I include a link to the WIP section, in case someone is interested in seeing the post. I wish you all a Merry Christmas! (If possible ... lol) Some shots in detail.... And some pictures of real model in Vietman (ALL PHOTOS ARE ONLY FOR INFORMATIVE PURPOSES, AND ALL LEGAL RIGHTS BELONG TO YOUR LEGITIMATE OWNERS)
  8. This is quite a basic kit by Italeri with custom masks made for the current aircraft that flies out of Goodwood in West Sussex, UK. I did quite a lot of scratch building inside the cockpit, and the overall finish reflects the tiredness of the current scheme, including the crazed and opaque windows panels. She is due a new scheme over the winter months which should quite striking.
  9. Hi, This is the very pleasant to build (and underrated) Italeri kit. Everything comes from the box except for the very efficient dual barrel MG81Z specific to the A-5 version, handmade seat belts and other details. The top RLM73 comes from the Real Color range. Quite a good range but it stinks and I find it maybe more fragile than the Gunze range. Thanks heaps for looking ! Antoine
  10. Joining you with this Italeri RF-4 Phantom. Which I'm intending to build as the Luftwaffe Splinter camp option. This kit cost me £8, at Gloucester model show earlier this year.
  11. G'day All, Another one done to hang from the ceiling. Had this one in the stash since about 2004, 1/48 Italeri kit #2634. (Shock, horror, raised panel lines) I lost the cockpit somewhere over the years, hence the black canopy treatment. Its all OOB (except the pitot, I busted that, so a sewing needle was used). All hairy sticked using Humbrol paints. The pictures I took are a bit ordinary.....but you get that. Regards, Devo
  12. My latest completion a long time in the making spent about 12 months on the shelf of doom just didn't have the mojo to finish it. Italeri H-19 with the Rotorcraft Whirlwind HAR9 conversion and a few scratch aerials specific to the HAR9 operated on the Endurance. IMGP2706 by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr IMGP2698 by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr IMGP2700 by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr Alongside its HMS Protector HAR1 stablemate IMGP2710 by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr Thanks for looking
  13. Just finished this kit, and really pleased with the outcome. No real issues with it, apart from the bonnet fit which was terrible.
  14. Hi all, This is a build blog of the very nice Italeri Starfighter in 1/32. I'm building it as a commission/present for a work colleague's father who flew them for the Royal Netherlands AF in the late 70s/early 80s. It's quite a familiar and popular kit and there are many builds of it available online. Mine's not intended to be an "event build" but just a simple step-by-step to see how a big, nicely-produced kit like this can be built and adjusted without resorting to masses of expensive aftermarket bits! This is the intended subject: LINK to original copyright photo - F-104G D-8300 of 311 Sqn based at Volkel. It was the pilot's favourite aircraft - apparently it had a good crew chief who kept it in top operational condition. So what's in the box? First, lots of nicely detailed plastic: There's a whole J79 engine included which can be displayed separately on a provided trolley à la Tamiya F-16 if required. The kit provides decals for eight different versions from various European air forces and one RCAF option. There's also an option in this release to produce a recce RF-104G version. Even at the relatively steep price you can't complain about the bang for your buck! So, on with the build! Alan
  15. Italeri / Accurate miniatures Douglas SBD-5 Dauntless. Built As a A24B of Groupe de combat 1/18 "Vendee" France 1944 lovely kit, went together well, used some of a eduard zoom kit painted with my usual mix of acrylics, and using mission model paints for a first time, very impressed with them. Airbrushed with my new airbrush, first time i have used a double action one for over 20 years, happy with the result. thanks for looking.
  16. I may be biting off more than I can chew with other group builds going on, but I need an excuse to a least start her! Going to be OOB with a bit of rigging and attempted weathering. I know that another window needs adding starboard at the front? Any other corrections to the kit may be suggested but probably won't be undertaken! Anyone know if the colour scheme is correct as a search on the 'net hasn't revealed this particular aircraft in photo's of the real thing?
  17. Dear all, Last months I've been working on an Italeri Wessex HU5 in 1/48 scale. Some info on the Wessex: Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westland_Wessex The kit from Italeri is not too bad, but also not really good. Details are soft, especially on the top. And some basic details are lacking. The fit is ok-ish. I used the following: 1. Italeri Wessex UH5 kit no 2720 (the 'UH5' is an error by Italeri. It should be HU5...) 2. Eduard mask 3. Eduard interior PE 4. Paints from Gunze for airbrush and Vallejo for brush painting 5. Weathering products from van Gogh, 502 abteilung (oils), AK Interactive line with e.g. grease, oil, dust etc 6. Uschi van der Rosten rigging wire 7. Some copperwire and evergreen for some of the details I've added I decided to portray the Wessex in the form of 84 Squadron, based in Cyprus (according to the kit info) in 1987. Here are the pics. You can see the build log here. I will now be starting on a Hobbyboss 1/72 Tomcat. Cheers! Jurrie
  18. This is the Italeri kit of the M4A1 Sherman which I’ve depicted as a Sherman lla of the 2nd Dragoon Guards, The Queens Bays, in Italy in 1944, crossing the Rabbi river. I've added some foliage to the hull and turret. The WIP can be found here; Thanks for looking. John.
  19. Another 70's classic oldie but goodie from Italeri... I'm quite enjoying these old Italeri kits as they have all the basics of a decent kit, just in need of a bit of updating and TLC. She's had a full rescribe, adding in more historic detail than was present on the rather sparse original raised panel lines, I've also added a fair bit of scratchbuilding, including an accurate cockpit, flap levers, dive brakes, P/E guns, sights and brass barrels. Anyway - as always, all feedback and constructive criticism is much appreciated... so please fire away chaps!
  20. Afternoon all,I always like to support as many GB's as possible but subject wise the 80's Asia GB had me at a loss,not really much in my modelling sphere of interest.Well I found this little Italeri kit had marking's for the Royal Australian Air Force display team the Roulettes.A simple if basic kit but builds well can't say the scheme was fun but after a few hiccups got near enough in the end.Many thanks for looking in.
  21. So as we’re clear, this has nothing to do with the Jewish religion or a Scottish poet, it’s a river in Italy. I built this model a few years ago, before I joined BM, so it’s never been on here before as a WIP or even an RFI. At the moment, I’m experiencing some problems with a certain black dog, which is making modelling something which I have no interest in, but I’m using this build as something to get my interest going again. I still have my notes and some photos of the build, so bear with me and I’ll post the build bit by bit over the coming couple of weeks. I saw a photo in a Concord book “British Sherman Tanks”, of a Sherman lla of the Queens Bays crossing the Rabbi river in Italy and thought that it would make a good model subject. I had in the stash, Italeri’s M4A1 76mm, and although an old kit, it was according to what I read about it, basically accurate. Steve Zaloga did an article for MM some years ago and said just that. With any luck, I'll get on and start posting the build tonight or tomorrow. John.
  22. Released: Italeri's 1/72nd Bell 206A Jet Ranger - ref.1372 ESCI OH-58A kit repop (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234975536-italeri-2015/page-3) with new decals and more? Source: http://www.italeri.com/scheda.asp?idProdotto=2484 V.P.
  23. Hey everybody, is there room for one more? I would like to build this: in these colours: As a twist I’m debating building it as G-SHWN that’s currently on the air show circuit, including the civilianised interior and possibly the invasion stripes! Chris
  24. Afternoon folks - been on something of a Tonka project this year and this one is a Saudi Air Force version built straight out of the box from Italeri in 1:48. I think I have the measure of this kit now and enjoyed the build with no real issues. The main bit to watch out for is swing wings and the front section where the fit is a bit off. I used Tamiya and Mr Color paints with some Alclad. The Tonka looks great in that desert wrap around camo I reckon and it goes with a similar scheme I did for a Lightning a couple of years ago.
  25. Greetings this is min first model in this forum, this is the MC 200 Saetta 1/48.
