  1. Hello everyone. By no means a recent kit, but another from the loft which really hasn't fared well. Fitting the upper wing was always a problem and sure enough a recent look inside the box showed that after its' last showing the wing had come away, together with struts and a tangle of nylon monofilament. I don't think I have the patience to re-build it so it stays in its box until another day. The photographs will have to suffice - fortunately I took quite a few, including a record of the construction. I'm a bit sad about it really as I was pleased with the result. It was a nice kit, in spite
  2. It's been a while since I did a WIP (mainly due to only having time for sporadic modelling) but here's my latest challenge: Should be an easy build. No wait.... That come later. This is going to be pretty much OOB, but with these additions: So lets make a start. Cockpit bits assembled. I've removed the ejection marks from the cockpit floor. And then everything necessary received a coat of Tamiya XF-69 Nato Black, followed by X-22 Clear. Now to leave it alone for a bit to allow the varnish to harden, then a little detail painting followed
  3. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Tamiya P-47D in markings of 509th Fighter Squadron, 405th Fighter Group, Belgium 1945, flown by Lt. James R. Hopkins. Built from the box with addition of Montex decals (K72008), painted with Tamiya & Gunze acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thanks for your interest! Best greetings from Vienna, Austria. Roman

F-111C Aardvark RAAF Academy upgrade boxing 1/48 -Cutting Edge seamless Tripple Plow I intakes - Eduard seatbelts - Eduard detail for the nozzle shrouds (for the HB kit actually) - Montex masks - Academy BRU rack with Mk-82 bombs (from the E model kit ) Eduard Mk.82 bombs here: work in progress I made the swing wings work, against the general opinion here that model kits should not be toys.... that is alright, but the F-111 looks fantastic with wings spread , in comabt postion and swept back, especially t
  5. So, after some late decision on joining in , and after all the necessary content has arrived today, I am ready to present my share for this GB! sorry for those who think we have enough C models already but, that is the one it will be! no chance of finishing the F model also in the stash with Paragon wings imho..... maybe large model STGBs should be extended a bit F-111C Aardvark RAAF Academy 1/48 -Cutting Edge seamless Tripple Plow I intakes - Eduard seatbelts - Eduard detail for the nozzle shrouds (for the HB kit actually) - Montex masks

  7. Hi everyone. My Tamiya 1/32 Spitfire Mk XVIe built as TD240, 302 Sqn (Polish) Germany 1945. I used the rather brilliant after market sets from Barracuda, with additional detail added using Airscale decal sets. I did a little scratch building in the cockpit by adding wires and valves as well as adding some more detail to the engine. Those eagle eyed amongst you will see that I added Rolls Royce rocker cover logos, I know that these are wrong as the motor was built under licence by Packard,but it was too late to try and remove them. The kit was painted with Tamiya acrylics with all the round
  8. I know I should just keep my head down and get on with building models the way the instructions tell me to but..... I'm currently at the painting stage of an Eduard 1/48 Fw190D9. I didn't want to do the colour scheme supplied with the Weekender Edition so looked around and found decals and paint masks for Red 18 of either I/Erg.KG(J) or a later incarnation. The particular airframe is Werk No. 211115 which makes it an early mid production Focke Wulf Marienburg built one, so far so good. The problems started when I looked through some of my books to try to identify which type of canopy would
  9. I'm slowly working my way through the first kit I've made in some 35 years - an Airfix 1:48 Javelin. Having made a mess of the canopy (trying to cut a mask and ran the scalpel deeply across the 'glass') I'm waiting for a replacement sprue from Airfix and I've bought a Montex mask to prevent a similar disaster. My question is how easy are they to apply? I have visions of trying to line up the inside ones and getting them all messed up. If I position wrongly can I move them or are they a one-shot thing? You can probably tell that I'm a little scarred from my experience! TIA Matthew
  10. All, We all agree that there is nothing better than nice, straight and even Canopy lines. I just wanted to canvas your thoughts on the pros and cons between Eduard and Montex Canopy masks. I have used a number of Eduards masks, however I am starting to find them both a tad pricey and on a few occasions slightly too large (just a smidge - but enough to make a difference?). I have now noticed that Montex make a growing range of Canopy masks, however these seem to be made of a different quality tape. Has anyone had any experience with using Montex masks? They seem to be almost half the price
  11. Welcome back my friends, to the show that never ends... Here we have Trumpeter's 1/32 SBD-3 Dauntless, which has been keeping me very happy for the past 3 months. I have noticed a whole bunch of Trumpeter bashing going on relating to their prospective new Venom; all I can say is that this Dauntless, and the Me-262 that brought me back to the hobby, have been joys to build. I used Montex masks for the first time, and was really happy with how they turned out... much more than I was with a set of Yellow Wings decals, which were basically the wrong size, and too fragile to work with. I
