  1. Boeing 747-8F Cargolux LX-VCF “Facemask” (03836) 1:144 Revell A very topical issue from Revell featuring their 747-8F kit in Cargolux’s “facemask” livery, including a real facemask with the Revell Logo. Just what you need for the next trip to your local model shop! The 8F is the freighter version of the 800 series of the 747, with a shorter upper deck bulge than the passenger variant, and no windows in the fuselage sides other than 3 either side in the ‘bulge’. The 800 series is the largest of the 747's featuring a fuselage extension of 18 ft, wi
  2. Why are Revell's F-16 two seater so hard to find and overpriced in the USA?
  3. 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
  4. After some months of work (if you wanna check the WIP topic, here it is: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235087386-revell-boeing-747-200-swissair-converted/) I've finally finished this 747-200. In general therms this kit wasn't very problematic: The main fitting was reasonable okay and everything worked just fine! I just regret the very simplistic lines and some gear doors and minimal pieces didn't fit as I wanted, including the wing antennas). But that was only a minor issue. The Swissair livery left the aircraft with a very beautiful retro look. I don't regret the
  5. This will be my first car as all my previous efforts have been AFVs, tanks or military aircraft where I can disguise my poor modelling skills as “battle damage.” This is a bit of a special project for me and I have been putting it off for some time to practice my skills on other more basic models. My aim is to make a scale model of the 1989 Trabant Kombi that I own. The Trabant has had a terrible press over the years for being basic, badly designed and poorly built. I am biased, but I think the Trabant is a very well designed little car that suited its market when it came out in 1
  6. Hi again, Soon after the Harrier comes this project that's been sitting gathering dust in the loft for many years now: Looks pretty familiar, the old Revell GR.1 kit which has now been not so much surpassed as smashed into the Stone Age by the new Italeri masterpiece. This will be a conversion to the F3 using Heritage Aviation's resin conversion set as a basis. Thought I'd better get on and do it before Italeri release an F3! (I hope!!) The set includes a limited decals set with those all-important walkway decals! Also using the white
  7. Hi folk's,unboxed,tidied and sadly had to bin a few 1/72 build's boxed up a few years ago,these three I was glad to be able to save as I love both the Revell and Academy offering's,thank's for looking.
  8. Being a London fan I just couldn’t resist the 1/24 scale Revell kit of the London double decker or AEC Routemaster. The model depicts the longer RML type of the bus with an additional small window in the centre of the bus. That increased the capacity of the bus by eight seats. This kit is perhaps the biggest construction project I've so far embarked upon. The fit of the parts and decals were very good but it took a suprisingly long time to finish the double decker due to the big number of parts and the multiple sub-assemblies inside the bus (the chassis, the engine, the bodywork, the driver's
  9. Hi there from St Catharines Ontario, along the southern shore of Lake Ontario in Canada. I have been a big fan of Britmodeller for a number of years and enjoyed the variety of kits and fantastic workmanship demonstrated. My main areas of interest of classic aircraft kits from the 60's and 70's and also scifi from the same era. Here is a Revell Spitfire Mk 1 1/32 scale the kit is from 1967. The decals were cracked so replaced them with Eagle Edition decals. The paint is Tamiya. If I was to do it again I I think I would use Humbrol. The fancy stand is from flight pose.
  10. This is my personal interpretation of the Bf 109 G-10 called Rosemarie. It was a really dirty and weary G-10 U4. The Revell kit is good but uses some baffling shortcuts. Unreal rivets on the cowl, low details on the horizontal stabilizers, cockpit rear armor integral with the fuselage and more… As usual I used Gunze Sangyo Acrylic colors, RLM 76, 75, 83 and a mix of 76 and 75 for the lighter gray of the fuselage. Decals are from HAD, 72086 sheet. Cockpit interior is from Aires resin set. Weathering done with MIG powders and Carbhotello pastels. The colors of this aircraft h
  11. The approaching (Ford) Mustang STGB got me taking a peek at another car kit in my possession. Sure, I should be finishing the Gulf War F-15C instead of this, but (and there's always the but) in no time I found myself removing the body side trim completely and making other small modifications here and there. Then it occurred to me (as I don't usually build outside group builds) that this might still make it to the Unarmed GB, how about it our dear hosts? No kit parts have yet been glued together or painted. My plan is to build her as a retro/resto street car, with a minimalist look
  12. Jaguar E-Type (07668) 1:24 Revell The E-Type is perhaps Jaguar’s best-known type, and was one of their most successful too. Based on, but very different from their D-Type racer, it introduced a number of modern features that we take for granted today, such as a monocoque-type body that removed the weight and bulk of a ladder-chassis, adding disc brakes, a powerful engine, and a modern steering rack that gave the driver excellent feedback on which to judge their performance. It was beloved by purchasers, and even competitors, one of whom rated it as the most beau
  13. This was just meant to be a cheap fill in whilst waiting for the Mi-17 to arrive but actually was quite a nice build in the end. The fit of some parts was as you would expect from a 1982(or possibly earlier, Scalemates say 1972!) model whereby it fitted where it touched! But other bits went together nicely. Detail is a bit sparse and there are lots of inaccuracies for an in-service aircraft but if you look past that then for 30€ you can't really complain. The decals were OK but the large roundels on the intakes had to be sliced into sections to get them to mould to the shape even with Mic

  15. Hello everybody. First, many thanks to Brad for organizing this GB . Also, my thanks to TonyW, rob Lyttle and JOCKNEY whose enthusiasm for the Connie "helped" (you know what I mean, guys) me choose between two subjects I'm really fond of. So my entry is Revell's 1/144 Lockheed L.1049G Super Constellation in TWA markings. The most elegant airliner of all times IMHO (the Concorde ranking second). I decided on the TWA markings because they're intended for the "long nose" version I prefer and I will put the plane on a stand, gear up, to emphasize it's sleek silhouette. If I could
  16. Despite the box-art, this edition of the Revell 1/72 Junkers F13 includes all the necessary parts for the F13W floatplane version. I used it as my basis for a model of Construction Number 650 "Biene", which was temporarily renamed "Eisvogel" when it was part of the Junkers Spitsbergen Expedition of 1923, registered as D 260. I used Master-X resin replacements for the kit ailerons. I intended ordering one of the Master-X conversions and scavenging the ailerons, but once Lumír at Master-X found out I only wanted the ailerons, he just sent me the ailerons
  17. 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
  18. This is therapy after my most recent builds. Injection kit, of something that flies - I've not built anything like that since the end of March (2021). This Revell 1/72 Me262A, bought from Andy Pack Models in 2000, for the sum of £3. Here the parts, very similar to the Revell Me262s that I built during the Interceptors GB. And the instructions and decals, all the same scheme, so no decision about which option yet.
  19. Bit of a last minute entry, I'd been planning to do this in the GB but hadn't managed to start till now, let's hope I can do it in a week and it doesn't end up in the KUTA build! It's typical Revell instructions, A4 booklet... The kit is pretty low on parts (not always a bad thing)... The cockpit is a sparse affair, but at least it comes with a little pilot, not my greatest painting but probably be difficult to see him anyhow... So in order to make life difficult (probably) I've decided to attempt to model the plane in flight, sometimes a
  20. Place holder as yet again a GB caught me by surprise and my entries are still in the post. This is the fourth reboxing by Revell of the original Heller kit. I'm going to assume there are accuract issues but working on the basis that the kit is a) cheap as chips and b) looks more like a T-6 than a Tiger or the Tirpitz I'm happy. This is what's outside, what's inside will be as much of a surprise to me as you Working on my usual basis that you have to be a good modeller to make a plain paint scheme look good and interesting I've found something
  21. Latest build is a Tornado F3 from XI Sqn. Configuration from Gulf War 2 as requested by the back-seater.. As ever all comments welcome. Sweaty
  22. This build is of the same airframe (Junkers Construction Number 650) which I've already modelled when it was registered as D 260 and participated in the Junkers Spitsbergen Expedition of 1923. That build is here: After coming back from Spitsbergen, it knocked around Germany, Estonia and Norway under various registrations before ending up under the ownership of pioneering Norwegian aviatrix Gidsken Jakobsen. Unable to obtain a licence to operate her company Nord-Norges Aero as a commercial airline, she flew the aircraft on sight-seeing trips around Balestrand on the Sognefjord. Here it is
  23. Eduard is to rebox in June 2021 the Revell's 1/72nd MRCA Tornado IDS/GR.1 - Gulf War RAF "Desert Babes" - kit - ref. 2137 Schemes: ZA452 - Gulf Killer, No. 20 Squadron, Tabuk AB, SaudiArabia, 1991 ZA465 - Foxy Killer, No. 16 Squadron, Tabuk AB, SaudiArabia, 1991 ZD715 - Luscious Lizzie!, No. 31 Squadron, Dhahran AB,Saudi Arabia, 1991 ZD719 - Check Six, No. 9 Squadron, Dhahran AB, SaudiArabia, 1991 ZD739 - Armoured Charmer, No. 9 Squadron, Tabuk AB, SaudiArabia, 1991 ZD809 - Awesome Annie, No. 617 Squadron, Muharraq AB, Bahrain,1991 ZD890 - No. 9
  24. Hi All I have been working in this for the last few months. I have always wanted to build a Target Tug . Being a brush painter made things interesting. I use Humbrol enamels and thin them slightly. The model is the Revell 1/48 Lockheed Ventura and I have made this as an RCAF GR-V TT from British Columbia. The scheme is very striking for obvious reasons and believe it was referred to as the Oxydol Special. The decals are from the excellent Aviaeology set and there is some fantastic information and photos, I do like their decal sets. I would also like to
  25. Well making a start on this just for something different to do and because there is a very nice gentleman on this site @stevej60 who very kindly gave me some kits he was wanting to clear out from his stash He would not take anything for them even though I tried so I will be making a donation to the Northumberland and Borders Childhood Poverty charity to help out the underprivileged children in his name. Wanted a simple OOB build to do while waiting for some bits to arrive for another project and had been liking what I had saw that @ChrisSC has been building lately on here First
