  1. Besides the Russian Beriev in progress, my dad starts the next seaplane. A Mongram classic....the kit dates back to 1966!! This is the HighTech version with PE parts released in 1993. DSC_0005 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  2. Kit: Monogram Paint: All enamels Decals: Old Models Decals 0799, Aeromaster generic RAF roundels Extras: Eduard pre-painted seat belts. NA Harvard III 2 FTS, Woodbourne, New Zealand Late 1943. This is an original 1979 issue of the Monogram SNJ kit that I've had sitting in my stash since there were Brachiosaur's roaming around . Built in just over three weeks without instructions - lost those so many years ago - I've finished my Harvard as the same a
  3. I did most of my growing up in Chicago in the 1980s. My first few years were in Poland and later West Germany, but I didn't really build models at that very young age. We had a great hobby shop in my part of town, and I would go there with my uncle and we'd both get Tamiya and Italeri (italierie back then) tanks. They were about $5-10 back then. I remember when my uncle got a Tamiya churchill that was over $20 and it seemed like a fortune. Time permitting, I'll revisit one of these early tanks, bit first some unfinished business... Around 1990 I became interested in aircraft models
  4. Hello All, This is a kit I bought many years ago and it has sat in my stash until I was finally motivated to build it when I saw a friend of mine build his. I acquired it when I lived overseas but realised building it there would create a monumental transport issue when getting it home. Even so, building it at home also posed some storage challenges so I decided to try and address that in the build. It is an interesting kit as it was repackaged by Hasegawa with decals from Aeromaster. The aircraft was Rattle n Roll of the 6th Bomb Group. Being a "vintage" model, it has some flash
  5. This kit has been part of my life for a long time, it seems. I started the build thread back in September 2020; it's been a challenging journey in places, partly because of the design of the kit and partly because of the decisions I made during the build process, but I think the end result was worthwhile. Why did I get this kit? I've always loved 1960s GT cars - Jaguar E-types, Ferrari Lussos, Aston Martin DBs and the like - but I'd sort of forgotten about the Maserati until different examples popped up on Jay Leno's garage, Fantomworks and Chasing Classic Cars all within a coupl
  6. I feel a bit bad about starting another build, but I'm struggling to find enthusiasm for the Airfix Aston Martin (it's the moulded plastic one-piece wheels and tyres) and having had a bit of a setback with my metal TVR (I wasn't happy with the paint finish). This kit has sat tempting me for a few weeks. The funny thing is that I came buy this almost by accident; I love classic 1950s and '60s GT cars, they are so stylish and redolent of a more glamourous age (a world that was probably mostly a creation of books, films and television). It happened that three of my favourite car sho
  7. Out of the box except brass rod for the pitot tubes on the tail. Superb Caracal Decals. Tamiya white and Xtracolor International Orange for the main paints. Great old kit.
  8. Hello everybody, Here is another double build I finished recently: the Accurate Miniatures reboxings of the old Monogram F-4D kits. I built both kits largely out of the box, adding only some wiring to the backseater's IPs, gunsights and spare PE mirrors. Construction was pretty straightforward, but filling and sanding is required, especially around the intakes and exhausts where fit is somewht problematic. Open airbrakes and lowered flaps are options in the kit. Despite their age, I really enjoyed building these two classics: the level of molded detail in the cockpit and around the
  9. This is my Monogram Phantom in 1/48 scale. It took me quite some time to finish. Especially the intakes took quite some filling and sanding. It's more or less OOB, but I used a decal sheet from Caracal (ANG Phantoms) and an an-alq119 from the Italeri RF-4E kit. Paints I used were mainly Vallejo and Mig Ammo acrylics. Some oils for washing and weathering. When kit has raised panellines I use nail buffers to remove the paint from the panellines. O, and I added some RBF tags from Eduard and scratchbuilt rear-view mirrors and some other stuff for the cockpit. Hope you lik
  10. Monogram kit, OOB with Caracal Decals and five miles of tape.
  11. Well as a result of looking for references for @stevej60's potential A-1E build and after seeing the simply fantastic job that @SoftScience is doing on his Tamiya A-1, not to mention our Glorious leaders ( @trickyrich ) brilliant looking 1/32 resin A-1E I fell into the trap of getting caught up in Skyraider research, a truly dangerous trap for which there is only one way out, build one! So off to the stash I went and I pulled out an anonymous looking cardboard box; The keen eyed among you may well be able to read what has been written on it by it's previous owner, Skyrai
  12. My next build is a factory sealed Monogram P-51B: This was a "sorry I goofed up your order" gift from an ebay vendor. I initially wasn't too interested because of the raised detail and all, but now I think I can tackle it and maybe do it a little justice. I'm not a rescriber -- it just looks terrible when I do it, so I have other plans, but more on that later. Can you imagine spending 99 cents on a model? I felt weird taking the shrink wrap off what I figured to be about a 45 year old kit. But, I did it and here's what I was gre
  13. Hello Dears, Did I have mentionned this building ?? The Monogram Dash F has been started in 1988 or so.. Will search where the Bushmasters are stationned at the time, but I think it was Bentwaters... I read a book about the projected nuke war, they told about the Squadron, There was a Mk 7 nuke for each bridge of the Vistule river, would have 3 or 4 eyed fish For god's sake they both stayed quiet or almost, no mushrooms Modifications on the pylon for the Mk 7 The Tamiya one is a more recent start, 6 or 7 years ago I think. She is retro modified, f
  14. Hello All, Thought I'd post some pictures of my completed 1/48 Monogram F-4C. This kit dates back I think to 1979, this is the most recent Revell boxing. It looks every bit the Phantom to me. I did not do much to it at all really...but being an older kit that brings it's own challenges. The paint I used is Tamiya acrylic as a primer as it adheres very well to washed plastic and the the colors are Vallejo Vietnam set. I really like this combination of paints. The gloss coat is Pledge (formerly Future) and the Matt is Vallejo. The exhaust area is Vallejo metallic which look r
  15. For some strange and inexplicable moment I obviously don't think that I have enough on my plate already so here goes with build number three in the GB. Following hot on the heels of my Skyraider comes another Monogram classic in the form of the A-4 Skyhawk, this has been boxed in a variety of slightly different forms over the years and can basically be built as either an A-4E or F out of the box, my boxing is for a Blue Angels F; Fresh from a certain internet auction site the very blue plastic came still sealed in it's original plastic bag; Upon opening the
  16. Hi, the very old kit from Monogram, converted it from a "A" to a "B" model Cheers Macki
  17. Having given it some thought I have decided to enter a second build in this GB. The original boxing of the 1/48th Monogram He 111 from the late 90s. It's a lot simpler than the ICM kit, lots less parts but here is the box and contents along with a few extras that I have collected over those 20+ years that it has been in the stash. The 4 grey sprues are in two plastic bags and the two clear sprues are separately bagged. I still need to get a canopy masking set for this and I have ordered some CMK resin bombs to replace the kit items. No wonder the Germans had problems bombing targets
  18. A 1/48th Monogram F-15A Eagle painted in the very early and short lived air superiority blue colour scheme. Humbrol enamel paints applied with an airbrush, decals by Caracal models. The kit dates back to 1979. I have always wanted to build an F-15 in this scheme and despite a few small mistakes I am very happy with the result. 20200819_141334 by Ghostbase, on Flickr The story behind this bird is interesting. She was F-15A serial 71-0284 and she was the fifth full scale development Eagle. She was used for armament development including the rotary cannon and when her test career ended
  19. Two thing's were a certainty for this GB,I'd do more than one subject and there would be an oldie involved.I was determined to build Monogram's kit which was a KK buy in a Revell box,it is for it's age beautifully molded with fine raised panel lines and clear well defined glazing looking forward to this one. Number two was an e-bay buy which was part of the seller's Grandad's collection which I got for a reasonable £13 still factory sealed so I'm determined to do this one justice,again nicely molded but not as refined as the Monogram offering but with some o
  20. Hallo again This time I did a break on vehicles, and I am back on a/c. This particular a/c is a good example of learning aerodynamics. The area rule is applied, to reduce drag by flying speeds exceeding Mach 1. The angle of intersection of fuselage and wing surface is more than 90°. As the Me 262. This also reduces drag. The delta wing concept also reduces drag, because the surface of the elevator is omitted. The kit is an old one, with all the negative accounts, but something else after the newest plastic tank kits with interior. Now I start the F-102. Happy modelling
  21. Hi there A few years ago I built the B-36 FIghter CONveyer using a Monogram B-36 and an Italeri Thunderflash. An interesting concept for lomg range reconnaissence that required the B-36 to transport the Thunderflash part of the way to the target, release it and then allow the Thuderflash to dock onto a trapeze sytem and be recovered. This was done afew times back in the 1950`s. When fully loaded there was 6’’ of ground clearance to the Thunderflash fuel tanks. The other clearance problem was resolved after take off by lowering the Thunderflash on its trapeze so the B-36 undercarria
  22. My next build, as chosen by my two boys, is Monogram's 1:72 Twin Mustang F-82G. It appears to be a Revell kit, reboxed by Monogram. I plan to build the kit straight from the box, using Vallejo acrylics in place of Revell. Lets get down to business and see whats in the box. The box art is pretty basic, and once open there is again a basic black and white instruction sheet. There is a small decal sheet with the option of 2 liveries. There are 5 grey sprues, these have some flash and some detailing (most of the panel lines are raised). I have already given the sprues a
  23. Ready for inspection is my Monogram 1:72 Twin Mustang F-82G. It is built straight from the box, using Vallejo acrylics. Being an old kit it had plenty of flash, raised panel lines, and needed some coaxing to get it to fit together. However, with lots of patience and plenty of filler and sanding the problems were overcome. I have really enjoyed the challenges this build has thrown at me and hope I have done it justice. Thanks for looking.
  24. AV-8B Harrier II VMA-214 'Blacksheep', Yuma, Arizona, 1992 This is the old 1/48 Monogram kit built straight from the box except for decals, which were Microscale. This was unusual for me in two ways. Firstly I normally stick to 1/72, and secondly I would normally spend a long time re-scribing a kit that has raised panel lines. In this case I went for a quick build (is there ever such a thing?) as the kit only made its way from the attic because I needed the drop tanks from it to finish off my old UPC Skyray which I posted onto this site earlier. So it was lying around and I th
  25. Hi there! I've recently been drawn towards dioramas. I've always found them to be super cool - and as a kid I started a few but they never got finished. Found Warhammer games instead and off I went. Anyways, I've been back in the hobby for year and a half now, making quite a few airplanes which are my passion. But like I said, recently I've picked up interest in the dioramas again and wanted to try to do one. I got couple models on the post, but I wanted to start with something that I already have. And I have this: I don't normally do 1/48 - so
