  1. I received a surprise in the post this morning, it was a package from my fellow modelling buddy and all round good 'egg' @Hockeyboy76. Inside the box was this 1/144 Platz boxing of the Thunderchief, along with some very nice edible packaging. Cheers buddy, I hope that I can do them justice and I know that Mrs N and I will enjoy the Stroop Waffles and Welsh Cakes. In the box are two kits with a choice of three colour options. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr Cheers. John
  2. My next build will be the 1/72 FS T-2Kai from Platz. This was a special version of the T-2 trainer to support the F-1 fighter. The rear cockpit was filled with all kinds of electronics and had a cover under the canopy. I've never build a Platz kit before, but it looks like a good kit, with plenty of detail. It kinda reminds me of a cross between Hasegawa and Eduard. A few stencils are provided, along with a couple of different marking options.

  10. Hi all! Well the next one rolls out of the paint shop in the form of a Lockheed AT-33A Shooting Star, depicted as she was when operated later in her life with the Fuerza Aerea Uruguaya (the Uruguayan Air Force). Over time the FAU operated 11 of these machines from Durazno Air Base in the centre of the country, with 2 more acquired for spares. “207”, originally a T-33A-20-LO, she was 53-4919 in USAF service and was operated in Uruguay from 23/07/1969 to 05/06/1997. She went on to be one of the last that was operated by the air arm. The T-33s in Uruguayan service had many schemes. Originally they were flown in natural metal finish with the usual national insignia and a unit badge on the port side, for the Grupo de Aviación Nº 2 (Caza). This unit continued to operated them in US-style SEA camouflage, and then Green and Grey camouflage (like US ‘Lizard’). The last machines received were operated in the ADC grey that they had on arrival, and at least one (“209”) flew with “US AIR FORCE” titling still visible on the nose. For this build I have tried to get as close as my old hands would allow to this: I used a little “modeller’s licence” for the camo pattern. The kit is the excellent Platz T-33A kit. I made some errors because I was rushing but I think I got away with it. She is pretty much OOB apart from the markings and the seats. So, what did I do/use?: Platz T-33A Shooting Star kit 1/72 True Details resin seats Mimicked the guns with half round 0.8mm Plastruct rod I added wing pylons from an Airfix F-80 The paints used were Humbrol enamels throughout – the regular 116/117/118/28 (Green/Green/Tan/Grey), plus Black, Flat Aluminium (27001), Gunmetal. Mattcote overall. The decals are Aztec (T-37 wing roundels). I printed the serials, the checkerboard, the unit badge and tail flag on a mix of clear and white decal sheet. Other stencils etc were from the kit and a Microscale Latin Air Forces set for the T-33. From the image above the serial font appears more RCAF than USAF so I went that way, right or wrong. Weathered with Flory Dirt and Tamiya Weathering powders I hope you like her. Thanks for looking. Martin

  12. Here is my Platz 1:144 North American P-51D-20-NA Mustang which I built back in 2007. It represents 44-72218/WZ-I "Big Beautiful Doll", flown by Lt. Col. John D. Landers (78th FG CO), 48th FS, 78th FG, 8th Air Force, USAAF, from November 1944 to May 1945. The kit was built OOB and fully painted and varnished with brush. As I have mentioned before, these Platz kits are a real delight with great finesse for this scale. Eduard has released these same moulds under their label. Highly recommended. Thanks for looking and, as always, all comments are welcome Miguel
  13. Here are a pair of Platz 1:144 Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden-Kai (Late) "George" which I built back in 2007. Both kits were built OOB and fully painted and varnished with brush. Both are from the 343 Kokutai (Wing), the only one to use the type, but from different Hikotai (squadrons). The first one represents C-343-45, 343 Kokutai, 701 Hikotai, Imperial Japanese Naval Air Force, Matsuyama airfield, Japan, in April 1945. The second one represents B-343-30, 343 Kokutai, 407 Hikotai, Imperial Japanese Naval Air Force, Matsuyama airfield, Japan, in April 1945. Thank you for looking and all comments, as always, are welcome Miguel
  14. Here my entry for this weekends Blitzbuild, no complicated camouflage scheme or Bi-Plane rigging, just a simple two colour build with a single aftermarket item. Oh! and definitely no silly challenges from the wings like 'Why not build both' I'm looking at you @Enzo Matrix and @Hockeyboy76, that way I hope to finally finish something for a Blitzbuild. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  15. Here are a pair of Platz 1:144 Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden-Kai (Early) "George" which I built back in 2007. Both kits were built OOB and fully painted and varnished with brush. Like the P-51D I posted last week, these Platz kits are a real delight with great finesse for this scale and are highly recommended. It's just a shame the type is limited in terms of schemes since all machines flew with the 343 Kokutai (Wing) and the only differences being the fuselage bands for each squadron of the wing. The first one represents "91", a prototype at the Kawanishi factory, Japan, in December 1944. The second one is "15", 343-15, 343 Kokutai, 301 Hikotai, Imperial Japanese Navy Air Force, flown by squadron leader Lt Naoshi Kanno, Matsuyama airfield, Japan, April 1945. Thanks for looking Miguel
  16. Here is my Platz 1:144 North American P-51D-15-NA Mustang which I built back in 2007. It represents 44-14888/B6-Y "Glamorous Glenn III", flown by Captain Charles 'Chuck' Yeager, of 363rd FS, 357th FG, 8th Air Force, USAAF, in summer 1944. The kit was built OOB and fully painted and varnished with brush. These Platz kits are a real delight with great finesse for this scale. Eduard has recently released these same moulds under their label. Highly recommended. Thanks for looking Miguel
  17. On display in the Platz stand at the recent Shizuoka's UAMC 2018 was what looks like a 1/72nd (?) Nihon Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation NAMC YS-11 test model.

  18. Here is the He 219 A-0 G9+FK. Continuing my Night Fighter series. I wanted to replicated as much as possible the original plane, I'm am pretty satisfied I achieved this. The Platz (Dragon) in 1/72 is overall a very good kit to build, there were some fitment issues with the wings to the fuselage and the undercarriage, I'll know what do next time! For those interested in this kit the Platz kit comes with weights and p.e which is extra over the Dragon offering so I suggest go with this one at least for the weights. I think it still needs to be heavier in the nose so I will add more weight at a future date. The original flown by Ernst-Wilhelm Modrow 2./NJG1 with FuG 220 SN-2 and Fug 212 Germany 1944 Anyway here she is, love to here your comments. Took a few more pics after adding the antenna cable
  19. Hello everyone Here is my Platz 1:144 Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-12/R14 (early) I built in 2013. Inspired by one of the unbuilt variants of the Fw 190D family illustrated in the Valiant Wings book, I made this rather simple conversion from a D-9 to a torpedo-carrying D-12. The forward cowl had the gun bulges and troughs removed and smoothened out, the wing bulges removed, the supercharger intake enlarged, a cannon hole made in the propeller tip and the blades sanded to a more rounded shape. The torpedo came from a Minicraft He 111 and I added the pylon clamps to hold it and the torpedo's tail wing. The tail of the D-12 was supposed to be of the Ta 152 type but that was beyond my skills so that is why it's a D-12 (early)!! The kit represents "Blue E", KG200, Luftwaffe, in 1945 (fictitious of course) with a scheme of my own making. The kit was painted and varnished with brush. The decals came from various sources. Thank you for looking and all comments are welcome as always Miguel

  21. Hello All, My last finished product, a Platz 1/144 RF-4E in German guise. The platz kit is very nice and went together without too much grief OOB. Thanks for looking Ian
  22. I posted my earlier attempt at this kit earlier, but as there are two in the box it would be rude not to build both. So this one is a machine of the Squadron commanders bird from the 87th FIS. Both together Thanks for looking.
  23. New from Platz to be announced at the 58th All Japan Model and Hobby show in late September. It does not say if it is or not a newly tooled kit, just new. http://www.platz-hobby.com/products/7236.html Robert
