  1. Something different for me from my usual helicopter. getting the bench ready for the Sea king GB The decals looked alright when I applied them and when the Matt went on there was some silvering but as they say "Hay ho" The carpet monster has been well hungry with this and there a a few bit eg the Ariel s behind the canopy that have gone west Normal 5 ft looking distance It doesn't seem long ago that I was sitting down the lane at Yeovilton and putting the camera down because it was just a sea harrier or a Canberra or a hunter (sobs into hanky) Rodders
  2. Well I'm well and truly out of my depth in this one.....But I have, kits, glue and paint so I'm plunging in regardless! I'm still not 100% sure of: 1 - Which version I'm supposed to be building, presumably a D-3 Trop? 2 - Which versions I can actually build with the parts at hand.....I'm a Trackhead, these things all look alike to me! 3 - What the differences between the various versions are in the first place? Threfore my plan is to build a reasonably representative 1/72 Bf.110 in 'Iraqi' markings, it will be modelled in flight with my usual slightly daft aircrew aboard.
  3. M-108G 1:35 Italeri The M108 is an American self-propelled 105mm howitzer developed in the 1950's and first fielded on 1962. It uses the same hull and turret of the M109 howitzer along with some components from the M113 armoured personnel carrier. The M108 mounted a fully rifled m103 gun which was 30 calibres long. 87 rounds of 105mm ammunition were carried. The Aluminium armour offered protection from shell splinters and direct fire up to 0.50 calibre heavy machine gun rounds. No spall liners were fitted inside, and the gun was not fitted with an NBC system. In fact no heating/ventilati
  4. Hello gentlemen, One of the interest of Christmas hollidays (beside presents, that is), is the hability to complete sont some shelf queens. This one was begun this summer and is now complete. Straight out of the box, painted with Gunze acrylics, a tad of weathering and pigments and that's it. Supposed to be based in Italy, in 1942. Hope you'll like it, and as susual, comments and crits most welcome. Best, Stef (#6)
  5. The Mongolian's got around a dozen Mil-24's around 1990, however most of their aircraft were grounded after the end of the Cold War due to a lack of fuel and spare parts. As far as I can tell (using Google Earth), there are at least half a dozen of their Hind D's still based at Naliakh Airbase, along with a few Mil-8's and a bunch of derelict MiG 17's and 21's. In the couple of pictures I've seen of them, they have flat tires, so I doubt they get flown much at all. I'll be using Blue Rider decals and the Italeri/Tamiya kit in 1/72.
  6. Hi, Next German birds from my shelvs. A Dornier-217 family members. Different as much as possible (engines, cockpits, wings). One is Dornier Do 217 K-2, a long wingspan version used for anti-ship attacks using guided bombs. It is 6N+BD from Stab. IV Gruppe KG 100, South of France, 1944. She opearated on Mediterranean Sea war theatre. It is RLM 72/73 camo overpainted by RLM 76 "waves". The second one is night fighter Do 217 N-2 (scratch conversion from N-1 in box), 3C+HM, 4./NJG4 based in Junnicourt, France also in 1944. This is RLM 75 waves over overal RLM 76. Comments welcomed
  7. Hawker Typhoon 1b Updates (for Italeri/Hasegawa) 1:48 Eduard Italeri have re-released Hasegawa's well tooled bubble-top Typhoon under their own brand as a D-Day striped late model, and Eduard have sensibly re-released their Photo-Etch sets for it to take advantage of renewed demand for upgrades. All sets arrive in Eduard's flat pack with card backing, and the Zoom! set is presented in a short pack of a similar type. Typhoon 1b Bubbletop Set (49684) This set covers both the interior and exterior of the aircraft, and is presented on two frets of PE, one in bare brass measuring 10.5cm
  8. She is finished finally! tried to be ready before the new highly awaited Kinetic wonder! I especially like the AML exhaust! Iwill buy more from them in the future! (they released a pair for the Heller Mirage IV as well recently!!! ) it is looking cool, no? sunset was already some years ago for Brazilian Mirages! first the IIIs and later the stopgap 2000B/C (till what exactly? Gripen E in some years time!!) the in progress can be found here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234966501-mirage-iiiebr-148-aztec-decals-on/?hl=mirage thanks for comme
  9. One cannot have enough started kits I think,,,,, while one is drying, youcan always sand some parts, or rescribe something, or else,,, so I decided to do another Mirage with canards, this time it is set to be a Mirage IIIEBR of the Brazilian Airforce (FAB), or F-103E as they used to call them the kit will be the ancient ESCI/ Italeri kit for an Mirage IIIE, still mor or less the only choice out of the box. As I bought a Neomega resin cockpit once for it and also got an AML exhaust nozzle, I really wanted to build it once.... so here it is.... parts are already partially rescribed, the rai
  10. Goodmorning fellow modellers! First post in the Ready for Inspection corner! Been wanting to build a Mirage V in the lovely SEA camo for a long time. Only the fonderie miniatures kit with extra resin was available. But last year Italeri released a Mirage III pack which gave me the option to build a Belgian Mirage V. The Mirage is an early model, this particular Mirage crashed in Holland in 1977. I built the plane white/grey belly and SEA camo on top. The model is completely rescribed and further more a resin MB Mk.7 seat was added together with an Air Master brass pitot tube. Paints are Vall
  11. Photo Etch Details for the Italeri Sunderland Mk.III 1:72 Eduard Having built the Italeri Sunderland I, I was very impressed with the kit on the whole, bar perhaps the excessive panel lines which needed some work to tone down. The detail is pretty good, but Eduard being Eduard have released several sets to enhance the new Mk.III kit further. These sets aim to provide both internal and external enhancements as we'll see. Set 72583 Sunderland Mk.III Bomb Racks The Sunderland had a somewhat unusual arrangement for stowing the bombs. A pair of lifting beams locating within the wing s
  12. Agusta Bell Utility Helicopter (I=Italy) from Italeri The AB 204 helicopter, was in service by the Royal Netherlands Navy from 08 june 1962 until 17 march 1978. Operations: search and recue, transport,firefighters,communication. Crew: 1 or 2 pilots (1 officer-1 NCO) + 1 flight technician. They operated from the Naval Air Station "Valkenburg" and "De Kooy" with SQ 7. The turbine engine had a maximum trust of 1050 HP, cruising at 200 km/h, with a radius of 400km. Seven were on service, two crashed. These were replaced with two Agusta Bell's from the Vatican (Air Force) Sikorsky SH-34G/J
  13. hello everyone, this will be my second 1/32 planes to be build so far, in the market there are only 2 sabres in 1/32 scale, one by Hasegawa and the other by Italeri, between the two Italeri is the best so far in detail, but it have lots of problems with the molded pieces and some fitting issues, will see how it turns out. For this one i will use some AM stuff, all resin pieces, the cockpit, wheel wells,airbrakes, and metal pitot tube. I have found some injection problems in some of the big pieces, for example in the aft part of the fuselage some panel lines and rivets are almost invisible du

  15. Hi all, This is my first post of a completed model on Britmodeller so please be gentle with me! It is also my first time using photobucket so I apologise in advance if you get lots of copies of the same picture. This is Italeri's CH-47 built and painted as a CH-47J of the JASDF. I think the camouflage makes it look completely different, which is what attracted me to it in the first place. I hope you all like the end result.
  16. Oh-58b KIOWA light armed reconnaissance helicopter of the Austrian armed forces or Bundesheer Italeri 1/48, OOB with spare decals Its armament is composed solely of a 7.62mm minigun on the port side. It is still used as of today in this role and the only armed helicopter in Austria apart from the side mounted MG used in the Blackhawk it was recently seen quite a lot in international exercises often with fancy camouflage schemes! Her one is depicted in its more usual green brown: and a special one for patch enthusiasts:
  17. Hello once again from Greece! This time I built a Typhoon Mk.Ib Late from Italeri's kit, which is a rebox of Hasegawa's one. Painted with Tamiya acrylics and weathered with artists' oils and airbrush, hope you like it! More info and photos here: http://www.modellingnews.gr/el/%CE%BC%CE%BF%CE%BD%CF%84%CE%B5%CE%BB%CE%B9%CF%83%CE%BC%CF%8C%CF%82-%CE%BA%CE%B1%CF%84%CE%B1%CF%83%CE%BA%CE%B5%CF%85%CE%AD%CF%82/hawker-typhoon-mkib-late-italeri-148

  19. Hi everyone! I finished this one a while ago, but have not yet presented it to the Britmodeller readership. It's the Revell (Italeri rebox) A-10A, that was built under a strong influence of 'A-10s over Kosovo' book. While A-10 is in my top 3 US aircraft list, it is said to see so many A-10 models built with totaly unrealistic loadouts. In this case, I replicated the warload as it was on that fateful day, including the empty Maverick rail. For more photos and full story (I bet you are wandering what's with the green engine pod), click on the below photo. Thanks for watching!
  20. Italeri is to re-release the ex-AMT/ESCI 1/72nd Stratotanker kit as KC-135A - ref.1353. Source: https://www.facebook.com/ItaleriModelKit/photos/pb.454765391262753.-2207520000.1412880396./744625815610041/?type=3&theater Box art & profiles V.P.
  21. Hello Britmodellers; here's my latest model, Italeri's 1/48 Reggiane RE 2002 Ariete, in the markings of Major Giuseppe Cenni mount (supposedly) just before the armistice, August 1943. For this reason, all the "fasci" on the original AC were either cancelled or over-painted, as I tried to reproduce. Sadly enough, Major Cenni was shot down a few days before the official armistice date, after a chase operated by some Spitfires, in southern Italy sky. The kit is ... oh well, as Troy says, a real pig: inaccuracy and fit problems all over; I tried to correct something, such as thinning the wings
  22. This boxing and some extra seats I got off a member here. Want to do a medium sea grey over light aircraft grey scheme, Gulf 1 ish. Not too keen on the kit decals currently, need to have a look round see whats out there. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears for decals! It's a well known kit so I'm not going to go into detail on the sprues. Started with smoothing the airbrakes in. They're only designed to go in the up position and I don't like the look. Used strips of card to build it up and then filler to skim the gaps. A lot of work went in just to get it to this stage! Whe
  23. Hello Britmodellers; here is my first aircraft WIP on BM: it's the Italeri 1:48 Reggiane RE2002. The kit box: The only aftermarket I'll be using: First damage (while removing the excess resin): Easy fix, anyway, with some CA. See the difference with the kit fuselage spine: Quick dryfit test: There's going to be some work to be done on the wing-to-fuselage joins: Even more so here: Opened up the wing gun holes: And put a stop for the gun barrel: Some rescribing (wing gun doors): Opened the radio access panel and scratch built some details of the internal stru
  24. Hi all this will be the first time I have posted a build of anykind. I am taking a break from building 4 Airfix Lancasters (1 finished 3 half built) and decided that I fancied doing something a little different! The kit I have picked is this: Italeri's Stort Sunderland MkIII I love the box art and you can almost feel the releif from the bomber crew! I'm on a weeks leave and have decided to try and build it within the week!!! (No Hope) I am going to do it OOB with the only addition being Eduards paint masks. I have made a start on the wings and the floots and will post some pic's when the
