  1. Hi Here is my recently completed Tamiya M4A3 with improvised armour. It was painted with Tamiya and Life Color acrylics and weathered with oils and pigments. Scratch items: Timber armour - popsicle sticks Steel plate armour - .5mm styrene sheet, styrene rod (weld seams) and nuts/bolts from spares box. Tarp - lead foil from wine bottle Nails welded to hatches - stretched sprue (cut to scale at 4mm lengths) Cast steel texture - Tamiya putty mixed with extra thin cement Thanks for looking - Cheers, Greg Histo
  2. Hello everyone Here is my first post in the RFI gallery on this forum. It's Academy PBY-5A Catalina in 1/72 scale. A fine model, not too accurate though . Still, It's my favorite of the flying boats, and I always wanted one on the shelf. Now i find that one is not enough The colors are my mix, using the Mk 1. eyeball to determine the right shade from the available pictures, taking into account the scorching pacific sun. It represents one of the early airframes, so I wanted to give the impression that she was in theatre a long time. Thanks for looking
  3. This is an old Revell model. I'm very pleased with how it turned out in the end. They said only aftermarket. Here's the picture.
  4. Newbie here (to the forum that is). Signed up on the forum last year with the intentions of trying to spark the building again........but my lack of motivation over the past year or so has done me in. Modeling and Photography have been no existent. Woodworking has been a little here and there. Been playing a little World of Warships here and there and decided to get a kit, well actually a couple, and see if I can get motivated a bit. So I am going to be building this kit........guess it's a 1942 version. The kit instructions call out Mr Hobby Aqueous and Mr Co
  5. Hi everyone!

  6. Flying Kiwis over the Pacific 1:72 Rising Decals The contribution of some commonwealth countries to the overall Effort in WWII can often be over looked, as was generally the British effort in the Pacific. The contribution in modelling circles has also been somewhat lacking. This new sheet from Rising Decals brings us decals for 7 different aircraft used by the Royal New Zealand forces. These are split between 2 Corsairs, 2 P-40s and 3 Dauntless. The printing looks great everything is in register, there is virtually no carrier film and the white looks dense enough that t
  7. Hi all First post here, I've been building armor for the last 10 years but after having my eyes opened to the turn around from airfix in recent years I have bought a whole load of planes that I forgot I loved and with that have found a new fondness for the application of decals, in some cases I've spent two days applying decals to a 1/72 plane! (a nice change from 3 crosses and two turret numbers!) I've also found that I can get models finished in good time and don't seem to get bogged down with the inaccuracies of a kit (due to lack of knowledge). Not to mention kits are £5 each n
  8. Picture the scene: A sunny morning on a small pacific island. The groundcrew are preparing the F4U-1 Corsairs for the days operations. A couple of officers are discussing the plans before taking off. Could I use these figures in this setting?: https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/IT5618 I know it's the PT-109 crew, but wouldn't the uniforms be the same? Cheers Hans J
  9. To-day I shall be strong, No more shall yield to wrong, Shall squander life no more; Days lost, I know not how, I shall retrieve them now; Now I shall keep the vow I never kept before. -- A E Housman, A Shropshire Lad, XVI Both the victor and the vanquished are but drops of dew, but bolts of lightning - thus should we view the world. -- Death Haiku of Ōuchi Yoshitaka King am I, whatsoever be their cry; And one last act of kinghood shalt thou see Yet, ere I pass.’ And uttering this the King Made at the man: then Modred smote his liege Hard on that helm which many a heathen
  10. For some time now I've been thinking of doing this rather mad project - combining my love for flight simulators with kit building. My first sim was Hellcats over the Pacific, which I played on my dad's Apple Mac LCIII. It was released in the early 90s and at the time it was one of the most advanced and realistic sims available. Today, it definitely looks like a 90s game, but it still plays brilliantly. The game modelled just a single plane which was, unsurprisingly, the F6F Hellcat. It had a limited set of missions all set in 1943 in the Solomons. A year later, an expansion set was released c

  12. American Indian Artwork & Emblems / P-47's over the Pacific: 19th FS on Saipan (Reference book) Landscape Publications No.1 If you're a fan of reference and profile books, then you may well be interested in this. The first of what I hope will be many more to follow, this book focuses on two themes. The first being aircraft that wore artwork and emblems featuring American Indians and the second looking at the P-47's of the 19th Fighter Squadron based on Saipan. Presented in an A4 soft back landscape format you get 64 pages containing a mixture of beautiful aircraft pr
