  1. I'm starting this build thread as a tribute to my Uncle, Sgt P C Brown.(later promoted to W/O 2 ) I only recently found out some detailed information about his wartime RAF service. The key to unlock the records was his middle name. I found his record card in the National Archives after my late father told me his middle name was "CORIN". This build thread i've decided to start up as a WIP. It's the Revell 1:32 Hawker Typhoon V kit. The reason I chose this was that my uncle flew this type in March/April 1945 in Northern Germany. I'm intending to use the Hataka Paint
  2. From an aircraft with its problems both in real life and in kit form, the Supermarine Swift, to its much more successful contemporary both as an aircraft and a kit, the Hawker Hunter. 1/72 Revell Hawker Hunter FGA.9 #4168 According to Scalemates a 2008 rebox of a 2006 Mould OOB save for a Master pitot. Homemade harness from Tamiya tape and ejection seat pull cords from wire. Colours from Xtracrylix (Dark Green, Dark Sea Grey and Light Aircraft Grey) Comments. 1. Well known and well reviewed. I can see why. Nic
  3. Morning all! Well, my second topic for this fine forum....A friend of mine has commissioned me to build him a BAe Hawk T.1 as part of his on going projects for his artist page. https://www.facebook.com/mrlongtheartist/ I've previously built a 1:32 scale Mk.IIb Spit for him, which features in his piece "with the sun at my back" as reference points for him. In his next project, the BAe Hawk is the subject of choice, and here is the build log for it.... DSC_1179 DSC_1180 A decent full colour instruction manual
  4. Another fine thoroughbred from the Hawker stable. I’m going back to 1/72 for this one, fancy something smaller to go with the Meteors, Javelin and Vampire on the shelf. Plus, I’d like to test out my new gloss green/grey spray before using it on 1/48 jets. Nice box art. Very simple sprues, especially after the Kinetic Harrier! The kit includes tailpipes for the F6 and an FGA9. I’ll be making the F6 version as on the box. Nice decal sheet, glad it includes instrument panels. I like the 66 Sqn markings with triangular roun
  5. I started this kit about two years ago and have seen various fellow modellers experiencing copious grief with the tracks. Even YouTube experts seem to finish up with gaps. I've been putting off trying to finish the model for months now because of the tracks issue. This is my first attempt at link & length tracks (A Tiger II is probably not the best place to start) I don't really want gaps if I can avoid them............. I've completed the wheels and cemented the idlers in place leaving the sprockets free as per some advice I found on t'internet. (This was be
  6. Revell's old kit from the early 80s, rehabilitated with a modified Trumpeter cockpit and Wolfpack ejection seat, Reskit wheels and lots of scratchbuilt details. Painted with MRP lacquer paints (wasn't sure about the shades, but it looks better after the decals and gloss coat). The decals are all from the kit, Revell's recent releases have brilliant decals and take a lot of the fear factor out of that part of the build! The subject aircraft was a 20 Sqn wing commander's aircraft based at RAF Wildenrath in 1971. It was lost in an accident the same year. There'
  7. Hello all! Up next is my all time fave aircraft - the F-15E. For this build, I`ll be doing a Lakenheath `mudhen` with nose art worn during operations against isis targets circa 2018. I will also build groundcrew, equipment & an R-11 fuel tanker to place around it.
  8. Time for the next project, and one with a bit of an overblown name. With that sort of name you'd expect some hugely overpowered convertible, maybe some sort of uprated Corvette. What you actually get with the Chevy SSR is a retro-styled convertible pick-up. This will be my first commercial vehicle (in the very loosest sense of the word) but don't expect me to do a weathered example - as with the rest of my display it will look qutie clean unless I make a real pig's ear of it. So, on with progress to date. I should say that so far it's just been spraying which I did over summer and
  9. I have 3 of these kits, plus an Academy (ex-Hobbycraft) 'J' kit. The Revell kit was first issued in 1991 (at least that's the year on the mold stamp), and I would have bought it not long afterwards: While obviously a very nice kit for its time (and superior to the Hobbycraft tooling IMHO*), the German-printed decals were not the best, so I left it in the stash. *Although Hobbycraft issued a much wider range of variants. Fast forward to 2013, and the kit was reissued with Cartograf decals, and I eagerly bought two of this release: I am
  10. (25.02.2021) Slight change of plans I won't be able to finish the F-101B on time due to geospacial abberations. However I will try and build sonething completly different it may even foreshadow a certain GB coming later up this year... MK Hi all, I will chip in with the Revell F-101B Voodoo the aircraft which epitomises to me the idea i of an interceptor. As I already build the Matchbox version, it will be interesting to compare bith of these kits. Btw. the Matchbox Voodoo is in Canadian colours, but the kit didn't co
  11. Hi All, I'm ready to tackle this beast finally! I've wanted to do a flaps and slats down version for as long as I can remember. In fact, the white (yellowed) plastic in the pics are from Circa 1987/88 Anywho. I - very carefully - cut the flaps and slats with the intention of making an internal structure for the wings. And of course, the wing halves immediately pancaked. So I ordered a third model once Revell Germany re-released the kit. With the intention of making a "buck" of the inside of the wings, I reckoned I co
  12. The Beast is done - for a long time now. The slender two engine is racing gracefully to completion. Work-from-home is was fun, then it was gone and now back again. Bench time was ample, then gone, and maybe coming back. It time for the next one: This one comes with a whole lot of plastic: So, frets cleaned up, transparencies soaked in future and drying, workbench is being organized. Hope building will start soon. Ran
  13. Hi, It's time to add another couple of build threads. This is the pretty neat Revell kit. There are two kits in the picture...I've read that the standard load-out for ALARM Tornado's had three missiles and there are only two of them in the kit. I have in the past tried to build the really nice Flightpath ALARM's with the delicate PE fins. I'll build my ALARM Tornado with the kit missiles. The fins are fatter, but they're all there and not bent. You may notice that the top box has a 5€ price tag...I bought that one at a swap meet in 2012.
  14. Hi folk's a marker for a future build once the BBMF Spitfire and Tempest are done,finally got the right kit sent after the Technik version was sent in error(yes I know I should have said nowt and kept it) but really all that light and sound isn't really my thing. Anyway Revell;s mk ix was picked up on e-bay for 20 quid including postage which is a lot of kit for your money.I then looked for something a bit different scheme wise as I did with their Mkii This scheme screamed to be built,now I know someone is bound to point out no photo evidence exist's of it's origi
  15. During a discussion on here the other week about this kit, I promised to post up some pics of mine. Turned out that I had taken some pics of this and a couple of other older builds back in the summer which I haven't posted yet, so fortunately have some decent images of it since I am unable to take any at the moment due to the weather. This is originally an Italeri kit, but this one is a Revell AG rebox from about 15 years ago. I bought it at the time and probably started it about five years later. However I messed up the bonnet as when gluing it to the hinges, the polystyrene ce
  16. Hi Folk's with my 1/32 year kicked of with Trumpeter's Spitfire Vb and Me 109 (both nearing completion) next is another Spitfire in the form of Revell's Mkll.This is my third crack at this nice but not without faults kit.I wanted to steer clear of the traditional BoB schemes but the later day fighter scheme's require a lot of correction's in the form of wheels prop's etc as a non rivet counter I'm not really bothered but for this build I am replacing the wheels with a set matching those of the flight's Mkll and finishing her in the 1997-99 277 air sea rescue squadron sc
  17. Well my take on this ship after a 4 month build period trying some new techniques grinding the hull to get the oil-canned effect some people said they thought I was mad going at it with a Dremel but I think it came out OK. Used the new Vallejo coloured water gel jury is still out on that one and used the Big Etch set from Eduard added some needed details I will be adding some figures later when I can get round to finding the ones I used on my LSM build from Shapeways but the prices looks like they have gone up a fair bit.
  18. "Three, Two, One. Now!" 1:144 Revell Concorde (British Airways) Hi everyone! After a pretty hectic start to 2021, I've now got a little bit of time to spend on modelling. My attention has been drawn to the majestic swan of the skies, Concorde, for the past few months. Unfortunately the 1:72 kits have been just outside of what I'd be prepared to pay for the kit (and I gather that the kit requires a lot of work too)- so why not get a smaller Concorde and use the money saved to get some extra PE/resin? I had toyed with the idea of modelli
  19. On display in the Revell stand at the Nurnberg Toy Fair 2020. Revell is to release a new tool 1/48th Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird kit in 2021 (or later as Revell is not famous for the respect of such deadlines).

  20. Hi again, Britmodellers! Kicking off the first new build of 2021 (yes I know I'm supposed to be doing the Buccaneer, but!) with a subject I haven't seen since the early 80s. Shiny new BIG box with included paint and glue! (Plot twist - I'll be using my own ) I think the '50 Years' refers to the age of the kit rather than the aircraft itself. It's infamous for being designed from the pre-prod Harrier GR.1 XV278 which was at Gatow in West Berlin. The kit as produced means you can make that one unique airframe unless you are willing to make some modifications
  21. I've got myself two of this kit, because I'm interested in building Construction Number 650 at two very different moments in its life. This aircraft was part of the Junkers Spitsbergen Expedition of 1923, registered as D-260. It spent the next decade knocking around Germany, Russia, Estonia and north Norway under various registrations, before ending up as the property of Nord-Norges Aero in 1932, registered as LN-ABH. Passengers were flown on sightseeing trips by Norway's famous aviatrix, Gidsken Jakobsen, until June 1934, when it "lost its engine" near Balest
  22. Maverick's F-14A Tomcat (03865) 1:48 Revell The Tomcat was a much-loved and capable aircraft that had a unique look, and was brought fully into the mainstream media by the original "Top Gun" in the 1980s. It has its origins in the late 50s and a need in the 60s for a replacement to the (also much loved) Phantoms with something more agile and adaptable. After much faffing about (does all defence procurement do this?), a Grumman proposal was picked for development and to avoid any further flip-flopping by the then US Defence Secretary, building of a prototype was di
  23. Following on from my A319 build it’s time to go up in size just a little... This is the new A321neo kit from Revell. Unlike the new A320neo Revell kit this one has an undercarriage and I’m hoping they release a version of that kit with an undercarriage but I’ll eventually build it even if it has to be on a stand. This kit comes in the Airbus ‘house’ / prototype livery which is fine but my set was damaged in transit and Revell never did send out a replacement. Having a look around I came across a nice set from Nazca Decals for the Azores Airlines livery. You can choos
  24. During the past few weeks I’ve rescued a long ago shelved kit, Revell/Monogram Do.217 E in 1/48 scale. The initial work I had made in the kit focused the cockpit, since I had replaced and added a few radio and comms devices using resin parts. Also moved some areas of plastic, added ammo boxes and other miscellaneous parts. A base coat of RLM 66 was also applied. Inside the box also came resin flaps and a very bad Verlinden set for this kit. Only two things Were to use from this one- the elevators, simply because I wanted them slightly dropped, and the rudder pedals. So b
  25. Revell is to release two new variants/boxings from its 1/32nd Eurocopter EC-145 kit. Source: http://www.plastik-modellbau.org/blog/revell-neuheiten-2016/2016/ - ref.04927 - Eurocopter UH-72 A Lakota - release May 2016 - ref.04948 - Airbus H145M KSK - release December 2016 V.P.
