  1. Greetings this is min first model in this forum, this is the MC 200 Saetta 1/48.
  2. Hello all, for my entry I will be building Italeri's A10. The kit come with four decal options 2 European green schemes and 2 low vis grey schemes but one has the shark mouth and the later the snake teeth options. I haven't decided which on to build as yet as the kit is not right for a or c model. Just found the Print scale decal sheet which has an experimental camo with warthog tusks and nostrils, 3 tone brown camo looks unusual. Now that the Blackbird is finished I can get started on this one. IMGA0746 by neil Connor, on Flickr
  3. #18/2019 My dad hasn´t done 1/35 in over 20 years. But this scale was the only chance to build one of the GMC trucks he drove when he did his conscript time in the mid 60ies in the Austrian army with the Panzergrenadierbataillon 11 (Ausbildung). Like other European countries, also Austria used US "leftovers" from WW2. All common versions of this truck were in use in our Bundesheer, 353, 352, hard top, soft top, wooden bed, steel bed, compressor, shop version...main version was the 353 troop carrier which was slowly replaced with the Steyr 680M truck towards the end of the 60ies. Used the old Italeri kit with decals from the company Schefczik, sadly both are no longer in production. The decals are selfmade style and I advised my dad to secure them, which he didn´t, so there are some minor damages to them. The little numbers were printed very tight together on the sheet which gave some trouble. That´s why the "3" decals came from a different source and are therefore in a wrong style. For THE Austrian army colour RAL7013 olive-grey my dad used a selfmix of Tamiya XF51 and XF62. Furthermore he did some scratchbuilding like additional turn signals and rear lights. The distance poles on the front fenders are metal parts from RB Model.

  4. Modified with DEF resin wheels (since Italeri still boxes their Humvees with the wrong type), I finally finished these two and incorporated them into my Division 2 diorama, found here I did consider camouflaging them, but thought I'd give the plain green (as they appear in the game) a go Thanks for looking Gaz
  5. Nowadays it is common practice for Airlines to paint one of their Aircraft in a so called "Retro Look" to commemorate former successful times. In 1952 the Scandinavian Airlines System, short SAS, went another way. They painted one of their Aircraft, in this case a DC-3, in a future livery, . But when the new paint Job was shown to the bosses, they were not amused. They did not like it at all and ordered to repaint the Douglas immediately! As Michael J. Fox said in "Back to the Future, part 1": You guys are not ready for that, but your kids are gonna love it! So this Aircraft never flew in this beautiful livery, what a pity!
  6. Hi, Does anyone have pictures och the Italeri Junkers Ju 88 038 "Torpedobomber" kit? Wonder if the ventral fuselage hatch is a lose part or if is moulded with the fuselage? I have an Ju 88 G7 kit made with parts from the Ju 188. But still have solve how to make the ventral hatch. Cheers / André
  7. Afternoon all, Here is my entry for the 'Specialist' Group Build, Italeri's 1/72 SR-71 Blackbird, pretty much out of the box all bar a brass/resin pitot set and the addition of some astronauts left over from a recent Airfix Lunar Module build. The paint has been weathered using oil paints. The decals aren't that bad and conformed well with set/sol the silvering is purely down to me getting the gloss coat badly wrong with my first use of Alclad II Aqua Gloss. It is not a stellar kit with some loose and ill defined fitting of the major airframe assemblies plus some well documented shape issues mainly around the nose/cheek chine profile. However, that being said I enjoyed the build and am now glad I took the opportunity to add one of my favourite looking aircraft to my collection. Cheers, Mark.
  8. Hello all, Placeholder for my specialist GB build, the Lockheed Martin SR-71 Blackbird from the Italeri kit: Cheers, Mark.
  9. So, here we are. I'm not ready after more than a year of waiting. No point in having an extensive discussion of the Italeri M47 kit here; it is almost as old as I am, and has been around the block a few times. That said, it holds up well compared to any other armor kit from the 70s, and is still a good model today. Someone at Italeri poured a lot of love into this model box then, and it still shows. Here's a look at just a few of the boxings of it out there through the years.
  10. I haven’t finished anything since the Tilly, so I dug out some of my early builds. This one is from about 10 years ago and is the Italeri Crusader Mk.lll. I did a bit of detailing on it such as replacing the slats at the rear with thinner card, adding the fuel line from the auxiliary tank and used the etched set from Eduard. I also replaced the main gun with one from RB models. It’s painted in a plain G3 green (I think) using Tamiya paints, and is based on a tank of the 17th/21st Lancers in Tunisia in 1943. Thanks for looking. John.
  11. After a brief hiatus the Hunter is done, and I must say I was very impressed with the Italeri kit. For my standard of modelling I certainly don't need to spend Airfix prices. This was built OOB apart from aftermarket decals, plus I used a spare 1/48 seat from a Canberra kit as the Italeri one is 1/72. I also cut up and expanded the cockpit to accommodate this correct scale seat, and cut the rear fuselage to make it shorter. All detailed in my WIP: XG228 was delivered to the RAF in October 1956, and remained in service until 1984, serving with 1 TWU from the early 1970s. It was sold to the Zimbabwe AF in 1987 and now resides in their museum. The 79 squadron Hunters were a familiar sight over Wales and the south of England during the 70s and 80s, training RAF pilots in weapons delivery and tactics. All comments and suggestions for improvement welcomed! ...
  12. Hi All, Just to show that I don't only do cars and bikes, I present the Italeri Douglas A-26C. It was bought for my son many years ago, and he had built it to a high standard, but had not completed the painting or decaling. I didn't have to do much to finish it, and it languished on the shelf for three or more years without wheels and still with all the masking on. Anyway, I finally made the last push, put the undercarriage and bomb-bay doors and wheels on, and here we are: On the whole, an enjoyable build. My son enjoyed what he did, but A-levels and a degree got in the way, and he hasn't got back into the hobby yet. I'm afraid, I can't claim all the glory for this one. Thanks for looking, Alan.
  13. Italeri 1/48 C130K - Markings are mainly Xtradecal I flew in XV185 during an RAF Lyneham family day back in the eighties. They used to take the kids up for a flight and how some were not lost out the back when the ramp came down is still a mystery. Current status on XV185- scrapped This was built over a decade ago and was badly damaged in transit from the UK to Oz. Not flak as such, just over stressing the airframe due to my packing. Fuel tanks detached, fin partially detached. Now partially repaired with undercarriage raised. It's a bit big so stands on its side on a shelf in the den. Today has been such a beautiful autumn day I thought I would give it an air, although I found the direct light a bit harsh for photography.
  14. Agusta A129 Mangusta If you could ever call an armed attack helicopter pretty, then the A129 is that. It’s certainly Italian in looks. If the Apache is a Chevy Camaro, the A129 is a Ferrari Dino. This is the 1/72 Italeri kit built out of the box, including kit decals which is a rare thing for me. I only added seat belts. A really enjoyable little build
  15. Hi, I'll join with this kit; It's Typical 90's Italeri kit, raised, and simple details, based on prototype of the Tiger. But, a good friend of mine gave me this kit, and what way to honor him better than to build it, right? The build is straight forward, and coming rather quickly. After the cockpit and few sub assemblies I thought.yhis going to be a quick build But a dry fitting session afterwards proof the otherwise This gonna be fun.. Cheers, Mario
  16. Just finished this one, Italeri's 1/72 SR-71. Built OOB with PJ Production French High Altitude Flight Crew which are excellent, even used the kit decals for the most part worked well. The kit had raised panel lines which I have rescribed, a first for me but went quite well. As its built in flight it only has 38 parts, very low for such a large aircraft. Finished in Tamiya paints.

  17. Hi all, After having had a bit of a hiatus, this is my second posting within a few weeks so I can get on with it when I put my mind to it This time round, I chose a kit I've had in my stash for a while - the Italeri Hs 129. This is actually the first Italeri kit I've built and apart from the odd bits here and there that took more effort, the kit went together well and I think it has really good levels of detail for 1/72. I bought this kit because the Hs 129 has always intrigued me - purely because of it's shape - as it has an almost triangular fuselage which is very unusual. There was also a good choice of schemes to complete the kit in - a couple of Eastern front schemes, a Romanian version and then the one I chose which was Hs 129 B-2 - 4 (Pz.)/SG, Castel Benito, Libya 1942. I was drawn to the mottling for this scheme used to blend the aircraft into it's surroundings in the desert environments. I've never done any amount of mottling before so decided to bite the bullet and give it a go - hopefully I've done it justice So here goes - my Libyan tank buster - hope you like it and as always you're feedback and comments are greatly appreciated. Kris
  18. My entry will be Italeri's C-47 finished as an aircraft operated by Buffalo Airways using the Leading Edge decals.
  19. So for a change from the WW2 subjects I have been working on so far this year I have started the Italeri SR-71 Blackbird in 1/72. IMGA0767 by neil Connor, on Flickr Its a 2011 rebox originally released in1985 so has fine raised panel lines, I haven't decided if I am going to re-scribe it as yet. It will be built in flight for 3 reasons, first it won't fit in my display case on its wheels and needs to be at 30 degree angle, secondly the wheel well detail is minimum and I don't want to buy the etch set as I only paid £10 for the kit and thirdly the Harrier GR3 I did in flight turned out pretty well so I thought I do it again Started on cockpit and undercarriage doors, will order a couple of pilots as the kit doesn't have any. IMGA0768 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0769 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0770 by neil Connor, on Flickr The front undercarriage doors needed some sanding to be flush but otherwise fitted well. IMGA0771 by neil Connor, on Flickr And a quick comparison with the Zero I still working on.
  20. Morning folk's,second build for the Dakota GB is this Italian schemed version from the 1960's,two thing's I usually avoid are white or silver scheme's! Anyway Halford's white and Humbrol silver from rattle can's were used and turned out OK the kit is getting on a bit now but still build's well the only issue I had was the decal's as the white hasn't a lot of density,as I had two set's I was able to "double up" which helped a lot.Many thank's for looking in.
  21. Just finished this 1/72 Italeri jaguar GR3 for my grandson. Depicted as the final flight from Coningsby in 1990 (although Sgt Vernon's name on the side comes from the final taxi at Cosford I believe?), The kit is very straightforward but the decals are a bit 'challenging' so buckets of microsol were required! Pilot figure is an awful Sword (I think?) figure from the spares box, but all I had at short notice unfortunately.
  22. Saved from the shelf of doom, I started this kit couple of years ago under rather funny circumstances. It all started with me having a go at the rather modern Hobby Boss F-5E only to discover its biggest glaring issue - the windscreen being way too short. To remedy the problem, I bought a water damaged Italeri kit off of eBay mostly for its clear parts. Seeing that the Italeri had the right shark nose and squared off LERXs seen on most US aggressor aircraft, I wondered if the HB kit was worth proceeding with. Eventually, I used the Italeri canopy as a basis to form a new windscreen for the HB kit and decided I would do a twin Tiger build. Long story short, I ran out of steam midway and both kits were packed away after reaching primer stage. Fast forward to 2019, I was looking for something to 'finish off quickly' and came across these two again. I decided to just focus on completing the Italeri while I used decals from the HB boxing. I made some minor mods to better represent the subject aircraft, nothing crazy. Modifications made were - Seat headrest changed to improved style (using putty to build the headrest buttress), scratch built the canopy lift mechanism and fashioned an ACMI pod using styrene pipes. The canopy lift feels like an absolute must have for anyone building 1/72 F-5s and took the most time on my build to get right. This is quite characteristic of the F-5 and I have no idea why kit manufacturers decided to leave it out. This was finally finished off over the last week since so much work was already done. I was too lazy to use blu tac on the camo and ending up free-handing it at 1 bar psi. I think it turned out OK. Hope you all like it.
  23. So, Italeri F4U-4B Corsair. The model is well known with all its advantages and shortcomings, however, i'll briefly list them. Pros: - availability and low price; - the only model that allows you to build"honest" cannon-armed F4U-4B; - acceptable accuracy; - Decal for three "Korean" options. Cons: - detailing to date poor; - the wing of the model is unified with other Italeri Corsairs and depicts the all-metal wing of the F4U-5 and other late versions; - thick cockpit glazing; - panel lines in some places inaccurate; - too shallow chassis niches; - The decal has inaccuracies. When building this model, the goal was not to build an absolute copy, true to the last rivet, so the comparison with the drawings was more of an optional character, the main emphasis was placed on improving the appearance. In addition, when building the model with rare exceptions, the aftermarket was not used. Fuselage. The fuselage contours generally correspond well with the drawing, so no large-scale modifications were made. Absent panel lines on vertical tail were added, the incorrect ones of the forward and, to a lesser extent, the tail section were corrected. After that rivets were added. Horizontal stabilizers The missing panel lines and rivets were added. Wing This part required the most labor. The following works were made: - incorrect panel lines were corrected and missing ones were added; - rivet lines were added; - the sagging of the fabric coverof the wing panels was imitated; - redesigned (deepened) wheel wells; - corrected the position of holes for ejection of spent cartridges.
  24. Italeri 1/35th scale General Motors DUKW with Master Box 1/35th scale World War 2 era women and Tamiya 1/35th scale World War 2 British soldiers: More photos and build info on my web site: https://everardcunion.com/plastic-models-2/plastic-models-land-vehicles/plastic-dukw/
  25. This is my first entry for this gb: an Italeri's 48th scale A-10. I will build it in old camo scheme. The box some bits to detail my model ciao Ale
