  1. Hi All! This is my latest finished build in 1/144 scale. Why ”NOTSnik”? Because of the Sputnik. In 1956 US Navy Naval Ordnance Test Station was developing various unmanned vehicles. One of them being air launched vehicle propelled by motors from SUBROC antisubmarine missile. Following Sputnik launch this idea was successfully sold to high authorities as simple and low-cost way of achieving satelite orbits. Originally known as ”Project Pilot” it quickly gained nickname NOTSnik. Douglas F4D-1 Skyray was assigned as a carrier, effectively acting as missile ”first s
  2. Moderators, if this is in the wrong forum, please advise and feel free to move. We've seen a number of 1/24 scale injection molded kits of popular World War II fighters and these appear to be quite popular. My internet research shows that there's been only one series of 1/24 jets, the Airfix 1/24 Harrier. Given that 1/24 appears to be growing in popularity, what would be the most likely 1/24 jet fighter or trainer kit to appear in the future? My guess would be one of the following: A-4 Skyhawk and F-86 Sabre. Both have seen world wide service and both open the possibility of a wide
  3. Dear fellow modellers, I would like to show you two models I finished last year. They are interesting parts of British Aviation history. The SR.53 was a Project combining jet Propulsion with a rocket Motor to bring the Aircraft quickly to a high altitude. The model Shows the Aircraft as it was during the first flights in 1957, when there was no armament. Later the SR.53 was equipped with some colourful rocket mock ups. As a matter of fact I built the old Airfix kit in the early 70s and I was happy to see this type produced as a contemporary kit, but.
  4. Here is my next project, it is the Profipack boxing of one of Eduard's first kits I believe. Great box art I reckon. I was intending just building the kit as is just for quickness, but in the end I couldn't resist adding some ribs and wires etc to the fuselage sides to complement the p/e supplied in the kit. Port, Starbord, The kit ejector seat was a little basic, I believe there was a resin one in the original boxing. Luckily Quickboost produce one intended for the Tamiya He162 was is near enough for me. With a bit o
  5. The ban on flying civilian hunters placed on them after the Shoreham crash has now been lifted, so they will be allowed to fly again although with the new regulations regarding maintainance and also not being able to do aerboatics, as with other classic jets. Hopefully this will liven up the classic jet scene a bit! http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/modalapplication.aspx?appid=11&catid=1&id=6886&mode=detail&pagetype=65
  6. It has been in the works long enough. Resin, vacu canopy and decals from Miniwing. Cannon fairings courtesy of Master. Brass by Shelf Oddity, which means it is the test article for the brass parts - an awkward way to promote our product and equally awkward way to excuse imperfections. First two photos with my trusty companion, who did the part chopping: and lent a helping brush: Now, the Attacker himself: "We there yet?"
  7. So to go with my Asas de Portugal Alpha Jet I'm doing a Patrouille de France one too! The kit is the standard Revell one - I've got a lot of these floating around and they make a decent Alpha. The decals come from Caracal which I believe gives enough for 2 complete aircraft. But I have 3 Alpha Jets and some other decals in a Heller anniversary box I got when I was a kid in France on holiday, so I may well do 3 in the end! Most of you are probably fully aware of the Patrouille de France. They're one of the best display teams (and my joint favourite) in the world. They'v
  8. Morning all, I picked this kit up as a break from the Revell A400M that i've got on the bench. For the first time I am relatively pleased with this attempt, having built two SHARs, one GR3 and one GR9 over the course of the last 2 years. It is also the first time where I am content with the level of post-shading (although I did have to clean up the upper wing surface when i forgot to dilute the wash that I use for the postshading and my airbrush started spraying out this fountain of black- reducing the effectiveness of the finish somewhat! ) Kit: Airfix 1:72 BAe Harrier GR7A/GR9A (from LM
  9. Good evening everyone, I picked up a Trumpeter 1:72 Tu16k-10 (Badger C) recently and I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of the badger's bomb bay or cockpit. Preferably, I would like to know about colours- what colours should I use for the cockpit interior and the bomb bay interior? I'm planning on fitting it with the AS6 Kingfish missiles on the wing mounting points, with a variety of bombs inside the bomb bay- was this a typical loadout or was the aircraft purely fitted with anti-shipping missiles? Many thanks, Sam

  11. Hello, i finished this model 2 weeks ago. I used the Salt technic (first time !) also i made a HUD. The model is painted with Gunze paints (H307,H306,SM04,MC214 and few others) I hope you'll enjoy !
  12. Hello glue-sniffers and ABS addicts. This thread is a split from http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234999580-airfix-vampire-t11-x-2/ Images are spoiler tagged for ease of page loading. If you have any issues with the photos, blame RobG. If you have any issues with the model, don't blame me. If you would like a custom-built version for your mantelpiece then dream on. I haven't built a model for probably 18 years, so I began with a pre-emptive strike on the box.
  13. Modern Jet Cockpit Instruments and Upgrades 1:32 Airscale Airscale have recently been expanding their range of cockpit details and bezels with some superbly crafted products. Peter has recently sent us four sets to review, three in 1:32 and one in 1:48. The Jet Detail and Upgrade sets contain the same parts si I will only write about them as one, the other two sets a small departure to Airscale, in that they aren’t etched brass, but sets of decals. The Jet Detail and Upgrade sets, (PE32 MOD and PE48 MOD) contains a single sheet of relief etched brass filled with a myriad of different i
  14. Good evening all, Just been to Bruntingthorpe's cold war jets day-superb stuff! Anyway the point is, I picked up a 1:48 TSR-2 for £28 and I was wondering what sort of things I should probably look out for in terms of building the kit (fit issues, etc)? I was thinking of not painting the kit (seen as it is moulded in white plastic) mainly because whenever I have sprayed stuff white in the past, thousands of dust particles suddenly appear on my previously white model and are trapped by the paint when it dries. So, what do you think of that? Is that ok for getting a decent finish on the model?
  15. Hello all, After a recent marathon build of a Williams Bros racer with loads of research and scratchbuilding I wanted to change tack and do something where all the detail comes ready-made in the kit box! I got the Trumpeter Mig-23 some time back with Xmas-present cash, and at a bargain price. I'd read good things about it, and seen some special builds (Arkady 72's on BM in particular) so pulled it from the (...one of the...) stash cupboards. There's a lot in the box, including many store options, surface detail is crisp and restrained, and there are some regular Polish AF decal options to
  16. Hello. As a warm up before my target projects I wanted to finish started some time ago small Hawk. During the build I came up with an idea to do it as "What if?" Polish Jet Trainer. So I build it, painted and started to put on decals. And.. Well. I've lost polish markings from other model. Decided not to buy any additional decals, which is a shame actually. Anyways. As it suppose to be a training jet I wanted to give it a real shine like on the racing jets. Everything was ok until I decided to put final coat of Enamel Clear Laquer on. That ruined completely canopies I ended up having milky c
  17. Hey, I'd like to show you my F-14D Super Tomcat in 1/72 scale. The kit is by Revell and overall pretty good. When I built this model in 2012 I wasn't that concerned about cleaning flash, filling or sanding - and thats very visible in some areas. I still hope you like it! Cheers, Tom
  18. Hi everyone, I'd like to present my ES-3A Shadow by Italeri. I just finished the model yesterday after a 10-month build. The S-3 Viking kit itself is ok, whereas the Shadow specific parts are absolutely horrible and don't fit at all. Im quite pleased with the result, of course some minor bits bug me, but in general I'm happy. I hope you like the model! That's it! Cheers
  19. Hi everyone! Today I started my next kit! It's the Revell 1/48 Rafale M! I will try to make posts with the step by step build, I am a rookie so bare with me! Also, kind of a slow builder due to my professional life, so sorry in advance! Let's carry on then! The kit and mandatory bath! My state of the art painting booth (maybe one day my wife will allow me a dedicated space!). Cockpit and ejection seat assembled! That´s all! Thanks for stoping by!
  20. This was a quickie done in an hour or two, built around two weeks ago. Not the best I've done but can't say I enjoyed building this kit either. Here we go: Regards
  21. Hi Folks, This is my first attempt at finishing a military model kit in several years. Yep, it's a grey, grey and grey modern jet but it's not one often seen in this scale. I usually prefer to build cars, bikes and surreal kit-bashed WHIF's but like most of us big kids, a loud fast jet gets your attention from time to time. A growing 'stash' of aircraft kits isn't helping either... The kit is OOTB, decals and all. The age of the moulds as well as modelling the kit in flight did test my patience somewhat but I'm happy with the end result. I only have two (totally wrong) 'military' shades of
  22. Hi Folks, This is my first full model aircraft build in a couple of years, I say full as I trashed the kit I was supposed to be building for this thread... I thought it would be better to learn to walk than to try to run, so I've chosen this seemingly straight forward simple kit to begin with. Hasegawa 1/72 F-16DJ Block 50 Well, not much else to be said apart from it's one of the less often seen twin seater's. A typically refined and well presented kit, this release has new sprue's that update it from its' mid '80's base kit. Box top: Nice photo, I'll be using this as a reference. Despite
