  1. Hi All, Quick question, does any one have any experience with parts from Big Blue Boy? I've a 1/350 Hood in the 'stash' and keep an eye out for buys for her while I work on other stuff. I've seen a resin turret set to correct the awful trumpeter ones from a company called Big Blue Boy, it includes turned barrels and blast bags. I've had a look on the Hood website and a search on here but can't find any real reviews as to if they're worth the money. The only other thought was Fkyhawks turret set but I'd then need to find turned barrels to fit blast bags, An
  2. After my brief flirtation on the Frog group build(Who am i kidding,I loved building 1/72 scale aircraft) I have returned with a couple of Alien figure re-paints,figures are about 4.5 ins tall,cast in resin,all base coated and re-painted Base colours based on the film of origin. Alien 1979 Aliens (1986) All together with the Alien 3 creature
  3. This set convert Revell Bf109G-6 into Bf109G-6/AS with standard oil cooler. The set is cast from polyurethane resin. For the photo is painted Tamiya AS-12.
  4. Finally finished my Resin Prentice, Aluminium with flat, Bright spark decals and spare serials. the miscellaneous stenciling silvered even on glossy paint!! the buckled and did the canopy framing with painted masking tape, lets see how long it lasts!!The orange tinted canopy parts were painted in local craft glass- hobby paints. All brush!!. the cockpit came with lots of details, all of course gone now!!
  5. So, I've had this kit from the 90s, a kind Englishman was involved I think!!. Lots of flash, so here are some initial shots.
  6. AIM-120 AMRAAM 1:32 Zactomodels The AIM-120 was developed as a longer-range all-weather air-to-air missile with Beyond Visual Range (BVR) capabilities, entering service as the A model in the early 1990s with the US Navy and Army, as well as a substantial number of other foreign operators. It was upgraded to the B with improved electronics, and later on it was further uprated and fitted with clipped winglets to allow it to fit within the stealthy internal bays of the then-new F-22 Raptor. ZactoModels have taken it upon themselves to create
  7. I have never built a Resin kit and I have bought some from Russia. I have paid for them and have heard no more!!!!!!!! If and when these kits turn up I would like to have built a resin kit so this will be the first. I wonder if Moa has built one of these? Box and instructions. Decals. Kits bits still in their plastic bags. I will take some better shots when the parts are removed from the bags. Thanks for stopping by. Stephe
  8. Hawker Hunter Brass undercarriage set (for Airfix) 1:48 AeroCraft Models By now you've probably noticed there was a Hunter theme going on yesterday. We reviewed the flying surfaces here, and the corrected pylons here, and now it's time to finish the triple with the landing gear, or undercarriage as we sometimes call it. As usual with AeroCraft sets, it arrives in a ziplok bag, with the brass parts within a smaller one to prevent chaffing between the disparate materials. Inside the bag are five brass parts and one resin part. The main gear legs are o
  9. Hawker Hunter Underwing Store Pylons (Airfix) 1:48 AeroCraft Models We've got a new Hunter from Airfix, and it's very nice thank you. It does however have a few foibles, as do all models. If you're planning on using the weapons pylons on your build, you might want to know that the kit pylons are a little undersized and have some top and bottom "flanges" missing from out of the box. You can either fix those yourself if you're minded, or pick up a pleasantly inexpensive set of resin pylons from Ali, which should be pretty much a drop-in fit once you've removed th
  10. Hawker Hunter Ailerons, Flaps and Air Brake set (for Airfix) 1:48 Aerocraft We've finally got a new tool Hunter in 1:48, and it's from our local (British) model company too. What could be better? Well, a bit of extra detail is always welcome, especially if you're planning to mess around with the flying surfaces. The kit parts are fine for what they do, but if you're popping them out to "dirty up" the airframe, there's a bit of detail missing. Here comes Ali with a new set to correct just that omission. The set arrives in an unassuming ziplok bag, a
  11. Since my admission back into the Xavier Ward for PTSD at St John of God Hospital in Nth Richmond Sydney NSW, the staff has ask if I could leave one of my model ships for display? But since a couple of these a going to form apart of display, “I said I do something a wee bit special which would link in with the work done here on the Xavier Ward and why the Xavier Ward is here in the first place.” So I selected a Daring Class Destroyer by OzMods in Resin 1/700. HMAS Vendetta was the only ship of its class in the RAN to see active service and fire it’s guns in anger. It seen active service with th
  12. Hi folks Been a while since I posted anything. Not been doing much but have worked on a couple of figures. This is the latest completion, and I shall add others as they get to the finishing line. Those of you who've been watching Game of Thrones should recognise this little guy... In the flesh, in front of the television cameras: ... and here's the basic resin parts: and partway through the (very straightforward) build: and the final result: and some close ups
  13. Hi mates, Having just finished one folded wing project (my Fairey Firefly TT.4), and having not learned any lessons by doing so, I decided to jump head first into another! And in resin to boot! This time it's the de Havilland Sea Venom in fabulous 1:72 scale. The build consisted of the basic Sea Venom kit, plus the optional folding wing set, both from those master craftsmen in the Czech Republic, CMR. I love CMR kits - the level of detail is astounding. This project is a tribute to Steve Long (NAVY870) from the Camden Museum of Aviation in Australia. Steve was such a bi
  14. I wasn’t sure in which forum to post this, Sci-Fi or Figures, so I flipped a coin and here I am. This is a resin and metal kit I found on eBay and as I wanted a break from my current build I thought it would be a relaxing interlude...wrong! It’s quite an involved build with a lot of tidying up to do on the resin and metal parts, and then there was the drilling and pinning of the parts to contend with. It’s painted with a mixture of Humbrol enamels and Tamiya acrylics (applied with brush and airbrush) with a final coat of Humbrol Matt varnish to seal it all in. I’ve since noticed that on
  15. Scale solutions resin model of the Derelict from Alien,a fairly hefty chunk of nicely cast resin,No air holes and a reasonable fit,Have been watching this kit for a while,However the company is based in Australia,so,with the initial outlay,along with postage and tax,it seemed unlikely I would ever get one,However a partially built one came up on E-Bay and I was the proud owner of another "Grail " kit.The seller was grand too,chucked in some miliput and styrene wire as well. As you can see,the two main booms had been already built. A little space jockey figure can
  16. My entry will be a Kiwi Resin Models CT-4A from 1 FTS, RAAF Point Cook, Victoria. They were knick-named 'Plastic Parrots' in service due to the yellow/green delivery scheme. Later they were painted in an orange/white 'Fanta Can' scheme (one the kit box). This will be the scheme I will be building. It is a full resin kit with a Falcon vacform canopy. I will be doing one of the aircraft I flew in as a Navigator trainee back in November 1990. I managed a whole 7.6 hours in 4 flights, the last log entry includes a landing (for lunch) at the halfway point (Horsham, Victoria).
  17. Hello, While working on my YF-105A (over on W.I.P.), I managed to misplace the canopy. After checking my two backup kits, only one kit had the canopy! As these kits are rather hard to come by (Revellogram F-105D) these days, I decided to explore my options. First I check around, looking for a vacuform canopy for the 1/72 F-105D. Nada, which is not surprising, considering the "ear flaps" and thinness of the original. Next, I looked for resin canopies. I found a really great one, but only in 1/32nd scale, and after all, we modelers must maintain some sense of propriety and not s
  18. My first GB of the year and straight into it with a big resin monster, Fisher Model & Patterns 1/32nd Sea Fury! I’m a huge fan of these guy’s, they turn out some of the best resin models available anywhere! I happen came across this model by chance and at a price significantly cheaper than normal so I couldn’t resist. The box is packed full of very carefully wrapped bits of resin….warning the photos below are pure hardcore resin porn!!!!! The fuselage is a one piece hollow cast thing of beauty with the only mould line being on the
  19. While this is not a model, some may still find it of interest. How I went about casting clear resin replacement canopies for some current and future builds, using two different molding procedures: Clear Cast Resin Canopies A few pics of the finished product, except for final clean-up and painting: Thanks for looking, Ed
  20. Finished my self imposed one month posting and forum hiatus but still got this one done for April and my seventh for the year: A sweet but full of casting /moulding flaws kit from Anigrand. I scribed and riveted the surface, Alclad and Mr Color for a "Man in the High Castle" vibe. Decided that post war the victorious Luft '46 boys would have dumped the camo and gone full shiny. Scratched an exhaust and throttle body to distract from the strange oval hole Anigrand presented, then made up some aerials for radar/drone use and drove myself crazy gluing 0.1mm nickel rod. Decals from various Skys sh
  21. Say what? Well that's what it says on the box: Another one of those wacky end of the war flights of fancy that the German air industry became obsessed with. seeing as I have a workstation free, I thought its high time I did a resin kit so pulled this one out of the stash. Looks simple enough, there's plenty of prep to do on various moulding glitches etc (yup, resin dust is more toxic that a Justin Bieber song: face mask, spandex body stocking and total immersion of self in warm custard will be observed) First job is to run this through the ultrasonic clean
  22. Hey my modelling guru's, I need some info on using resin upgrades, and I have not been able to find much via YT. Partly because I am in a new house and haven't been able to get my internet hooked up yet, so I have to buy load on my crappy phone, and its REALLY SLOW, plus, most of the videos are based on full resin kits in Gundam or something, not really the kind of upgrade kits we face. Anyway, I am pretty sure I got the cleaning resin part, using respirators when sanding/cutting (what ever happened to the old highschool shop class, where lost fingers were a thing of pride, we are
  23. This is my rendition of the Planet Models' Republic XF-91 Thunderceptor. This may look kind of generic at first glance but, a closer look will show it has reverse taper wings with both the chord and camber being larger at the tip then the root, with the wheels folding into the tips and a V tail (they called it a "butter fly" tail but to me it looks like donkey ears, so I'll go with V). This is my third Planet Models kit and while I was very happy with the first 2 this one was a bit of a disappointment. The castings looked very goo with no flash, but as soon as I started sanding I w
  24. A little Dujin resin from a couple years ago: We modelers are truly grateful for the small/cottage kit industry. They release kits that are a joy, different, out-of-the-beaten-path and frankly delightful -and civil-. They do not posses or have access to all the resources that big industry has, so they do their best. Many times their standards are really high, and sometimes they are not really quite there. But without them, we may be condemned to a dull, repetitive endless stream of the same-old-same-old. So, to all of them, and in this case the late Monsieur Dujin, o
  25. Happy New year all,Hope you had a good Christmas,my astonishingly wonderful wife got me this beauty. The presentation and casting are top notch. quality bit of kit Goes together straight out of the box The Semi-Transparent alien egg is a nice touch The only real drawback is that John Hurts estate didnt OK his likeness,but with a bit of lighting I think it will look OK.
