  1. Twins, and especially twin-tail twins, are delightful machines that usually captivate modelers. I have built, as examples of the type, Amelia's Lockheed Electra: The Mitsubishi L3M1: And the Fiat BR20: What occupies us today is a smallish, yet equally handsome Beechcraft 18, that was born in the late 30's but saw ample use, service and production for many long years, on wheels, skis and floats.

  3. F4U-1 Propeller 1:32 Eduard Brassin - For Tamiya Kit Propeller (632110) This is a new prop unit. The blades are individual and seat into the top of the hub via a provided jig. When this is removed from the pour block the modeller will have to drill a locating hole in it. Review samples courtesy of
  4. Greetings all, Does anyone know what type of propellers where used on the 'original' civil DC-3's equipped with Wright Cyclone R-1820 engines? Although I'm sure they are not correct, however to my eyes, the prop and spinner that comes with the 1/72 Matchbox Lysander look quite similar. I have posted a separate 'wants' post for a spare prop here if anyone has one - http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234966944-matchbox-172-lysander-prop-spinner-any-condition/ Failing that, does anyone know of any aftermarket props that are available in 1/72 scale. Cheers and thanks for l
  5. There are many threads and questions about Spitfire propellers and which should be fitted to what mark etc. There are some great references here on Britmodeller already. This post is intended to publicise the different propellers and spinners available for Spitfires in 1/48 scale from Ultracast. All info from Ultracast's own site: Weybridge 2-blade propeller - Ultracast 48197 This propeller was installed on the first production Spitfires (K9787 to K9863) De Havilland 3-blade propeller and spinner - Ultracast 48112 This is the prop & spinner mostly commonly associated with the Mk I
  6. This is my tutorial on how to get a good weathered finish on the nose cap of a model plane. There will be no pictures sadly because I don't know how to get them from my phone to the forum. This is intended for beginners and people who need or want to finish a model faster. 1. Start with a black base coat. Just paint the nose cap black, and make sure the whole cap is painted the color. 2. Get any color you want or the one assigned in the painting instructions and paint the color from the top of the nose to the bottom. One or two coats is the best for this, because you still want to keep the w
  7. Hello everybody, just another question that came across my mind recently: what are the reasons behind the different developments of propellers on German and British fighters in WWII? Both the Spitfire and the Bf-109 started their career with a two-bladed fixed-pitch wooden airscrew. On both aircraft, these were quickly replaced by two-bladed, then three-bladed variable-pitch propellers. With ever increasing engine power the Spitfire soon used four propeller blades (Mk. IX onwards), five blades (Mk. XIV) and eventually even a contra-rotating prop with 2x3 blades (some Mk. 21 and the last Seaf
  8. Focke Wulf 190F-8 Propeller 1:32 Brassin (632 069) Although the general feeling is that the Revell 1:32 Focke Wulf 190F-8 is pretty well detailed straight from the box, it seems Eduards intent to replace almost every bit of detail other than the main fuselage and wing components. With this in mind they have just released a replacement propeller set. The set comes in the hard blister pack that Eduard/Brassin parts are usually found. On opening there is a small etched template under a card backing, three dark grey resin propeller blades and four light grey resin parts, protected by foam inse

    Propeller Blades

    I have notice that it seems fashionable to weather blades by chipping the paint and shoing silver along the edges. I always thought the following: Spitfire and Hurricane - wood with plastic strips on the edges painted black yellow tips Mossy and other RAF - Unsure but same as above German - Wood painted green or black Japanesse - wood painted black USA - early - wood painted silver in from and black facing pilot USA - late - unsure Anyone care to enlighten me Thanks Sean
  10. P-51 Mustang Propeller blades Red Roo Models 1:32 There seems to many a variation in the style and shape of propeller blades used on the NA P-51 Mustang. Not all of them are supplied in the various kits currently released. Meaning it’s been the tasks of the modeller to either modify what’s been provided, or buy in aftermarket propellers. To this end, Red Roo Models have released three sets of propeller blades to give the modeller more options on which 1:32 scale P-51 variant they wish to build. Each set includes four individual resin blades for both NAA and CAC built aircraft. Th

Rotol Equipment for Spitfire Mk VII, VIII and IX plus (X, XI & XVI) Aircraft Pictured above as photographed by Royal Air Force (RAF), Official Photographer, Flying Officer (F/O) L H Baker is an unidentified 241 Squadron (Sqn), RAF Merlin 63 powered Spitfire FIX (probably MH653, RZ-U*), being serviced by Aircraftman (AC1) Jim Birkett of B Flight and Leading Aircraftman (LAC) Wally Passmore of Maintenance Flight at Canne, Vesuvius, Italy during 27 January 1944.

  12. I am looking to build a specific RAAF Mustang with the new Airfix kit, namely A68-766 in 1946. According to the source I have Mustangs with serials in the range A68-600 to 813 were P-51D's. Is anyone able to confirm (or not) that I am safe making use of the kit's provided cuffed HS propeller. I cannot find any photographs of the said aircraft, but I have found some artwork which would indicate a cuffed propeller is OK. Many thanks in advance. Cheers Simon
