  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Just finished this kit, and really pleased with the outcome. No real issues with it, apart from the bonnet fit which was terrible.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. Greetings this is min first model in this forum, this is the MC 200 Saetta 1/48.
  19. 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
  20. #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.

  21. 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
  22. 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!
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. Hello all, Placeholder for my specialist GB build, the Lockheed Martin SR-71 Blackbird from the Italeri kit: Cheers, Mark.
