  1. Hi All, Here's another completed build from the lockdown - the Revell 1/32 F/A-18E Super Hornet built (almost) out of the box for the In The Navy Groupbuild. Only the seat and GBU-38 bombs were aftermarket items, I added the HARMs from the Academy kit spares. Everything else, including the decals, came from Revell's monster kit. The word on the street about this kit was overwhelmingly negative apart from a very nice in-prog build by @infofrog and a very fair RFI summary by @Habu12. Most of the bad news was coming from another site (Big'N'Tall A
  2. 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
  3. RMS Titanic Easy-Click System with 3D backdrop (05599) 1:600 Revell There can’t be many people that have not heard of the awful loss of life that occurred when the Titanic’s maiden voyage intersected with an iceberg, causing huge rips in the side of the vessel and overwhelming the watertight doors, and confounding the belief that she was unsinkable. At the end of the day on 14th April 1912 she hit the iceberg and began taking on water. Less than three hours later she broke up and slipped beneath the surface with many of the passengers still aboard, and many more
  4. Hello Again, this is the second of my recent builds, once again built straight out of the box and painted with Tamiya acrylics. I'm not sure I've got the colour right I think it may be a little dark, also I'm not sure the two probes on the nose are positioned correctly and you will notice that the decals have silvered so overall I'm not totally satisfied with this build, please be kind. Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are welcome.

    Do-228 kit

    I know that there is a Revell Do-228 kit floating around, but I haven't been able to find it on Hannants. Also, since I plan to build it as an Indian Navy aircraft, I was wondering if anyone did decals for that & if that was also available on Hannants. Thanks a lot
  6. Precision Scraper Revell (39083) We all need tools in modelling for various things, generally for scraping we use the back or front of a knife blade, and while that works sometimes it is not the best. Tool makers have come forward with solutions to this and now Revell bring us their version. The scraper is made from high carbon steel the head is about an inch long and tapers to a point. The blade is substantial about 3mm at the handle end, but this also tapers down to the point. The scraper is very sharp and looks like it will keep its edge very well (so sharp I
  7. Hi all, I'd like to join this GB with a 1/72 Bristol Blenheim 1f. It's the Revell kit, which I believe was originally produced by Frog in 1969 - I built a few Frog kits back in my youth, but not this one, I think! It's a project I intended to do years ago but never got around to, with an Airwaves etch set to tart it up a bit and decals from an FCM set, depicting an aircraft from 25 Squadron in September 1940. Cheers, David
  8. These are two recent finishes for the Battle of Britain 80th Anniversary Group Build. I wanted to find a suitable subject(s) that had a link to NW England, and discovered that this action had taken place over the Liverpool area. This is my attempt in to represent two of the combatants involved in that action. The Bromborough Dock Incident The events took place after the height, but still within the timeframe, of the Battle of Britain on the 8th October 1940. That day the crew of a Ju.88 A-1, M7 + DK of 2/KGr.806 took off from their base in France heading for Liverpool,
  9. Slave 1 – Boba Fett’s Ship (05678) 1:88 Revell WARNING: If you've been trapped behind a wardrobe since the 1980s, there may be some spoilers ahead. You have been warned! We were introduced to Boba Fett the bounty hunter and his ride, Slave 1 in Star Wars Empire Strikes Back in 1980, when he was tasked by the Empire to hunt down and capture Han Solo, and to bring Luke Skywalker to an ambush, in order to tempt him to the Dark Side of the Force. We saw the ship for the first time when the Millennium Falcon detached from a Star Destroyer when they dumped
  10. Hello to all of you guys and girls on this forum.I present you my East German MiG-21f13.I built it OOB with the exception of the homemade seatbelts and the missiles and rails that came from the spares box.I used gunze and tamiya paints on this one.Enjoy it. https://youtu.be/r-jGsZITjSE
  11. AVRO Shackleton MR.3 (03873) 1:72 Revell The Avro Shackleton was a long-range maritime patrol, Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Airborne Early Warning (AEW) aircraft developed by Avro from the Lincoln (with a few elements borrowed from the Tudor), which in turn was developed from the wartime Lancaster bomber. Powered by four Rolls Royce Griffon engines driving contra-rotating propellers, the Shackleton possessed far greater range than its forebears, enabling it to stay airborne for over 14 hours, despite its higher gross weight. In the Maritime Reconnaissance role
  12. Development and design: The Atlantic is a NATO project that found its origin in the fifties of the last century. The first official order was placed on June 6, 1963. It comprised 20 aircraft for the France Naval Air Arm. Followed by 20 aircraft for the Federal German Navy. (Marineflieger) In a later stadium the France Navy ordered another 20 aircraft. These 60 airframes were all delivered at the end of 1968. That same year the Royal Netherlands Navy ordered nine aircraft, as a replacement for the decommissioned aircraft carrier Hr.Ms. Karel Doorman. Italy also joined the French-Germa
  13. Hi guys, I will be building a Heinkel He-111 P from Revell in 1/32 scale. I have some goodies for it. I will be using a mask set from Montex for a plane from 9/KG55. I will put up some pictures in the next few weeks. As I will be building this also for the He-111 STGB that starts in a few weeks and I will be host. Cheers,
  14. Is it me, or are the Zvezda 747-8 engines and pylons more accurate than the Revell ones? There just seem to be a lot of little differences that make them look more accurate but that just might be me not looking at the right reference pictures.
  15. Leopard 1A5 1:35 Revell The Leopard project started back in the mid 1950s with the goal of producing a modern tank to replace the M47 and M48 tanks which where then in use by the recently reconstituted Bundesehr (German Army). The specification called for a tank weighing no more than 30 tonnes capable of surviving 20mm rapid fire cannon and having a power-to-weight ratio of 30hp per tonne. The tank had to be capable of surviving on a nuclear/chemical contaminated battlefield. Armament was to be the then standard NATO 105mm gun. For this design Mobility was the primary co
  16. As part of my club's table for Telford, I undertook this massive build back in in June. It is finally complete! The water surface down to the sea bed is all scratch built and I've extensively weathered the platform and added some 1:200 scale figures to populate it. The whole thing is probably the biggest model I've ever built - 20£ wide, 10" deep and over 3 foot tall. Build thread here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235004743-1200-revell-north-cormorant-oil-rig/ I have no idea where I will put this after Telford, I don't have a shelf big eno
  17. Hi guys, I will be building a Heinkel He-111 P from Revell in 1/32 scale. I have some goodies for it. I will be using a mask set from Montex for a plane from 9/KG55. Here are some pictures The boxart and a box full of plastic. and some of the extra's I want to use As you can see is there the bomb rack from the H version. As I am making a later P version I need this. Also the exhaust are different and I use some from a H version. I have also got a set from Montex for the maskes including the masks for the 9/KG55.
  18. I started building 1/72 German WW2 jet & rocket models years ago and when I started building kits a few years back I got a Revell Messerschmitt P1099B kit. I saw some Luft 46 sketches of the P1099 built with just the upper rear facing guns and since the kit came with a rounded nose option I built it that way. I went on to start a Horton Go 229 kit as that aircraft always fascinated me. About half way through I started building 1/48 Cold War jets and the Go 229 got shifted to the shelf of doom. About 5 or more years ago I guess. Then recently @The Spadgent started his multi build proje
  19. Another tank rolls in. This time it's a late mark Crusader which brought the 6 pounder anti tank gun in a tank into the Western Desert. In the top opening box are two grey sprues and a vinyl set of tracks. Usual Revell instructions with the weird mixes for the paint call outs. Two 8th Army options but for some reason the transfers are missing. I'm sure they were there when I pulled it from the stash so I'll have to have a look in case I put it in another box. I thought this was a Matchbox re
  20. Camaro Concept Car - Easy click system 1/25 Revell (07648) The Camaro has been in Chevrolets stable since the first one was released in 1966 as a competitor to the Ford Mustang. Production of the then 4th Generation car ended in 2002. In 2006 Chevrolet unveiled a new concept car at the 2006 North American Auto Show, this was designed by South Korean born Sangyp Lee and based on the Holden GM Zeta platform. The 5th Generation Camaro would be based on this car. The Kit Here Revell have re-released their 2011 model of this car. As this is a
  21. Here is my Revell 1:144 Lockheed TF-104G Starfighter which I built back in 2004. It represents 28+31 of JaboG34, Luftwaffe, based at Memmingen, German Federal Republic, in the 1970s. It was built OOB, painted with brush and only the flat varnish was airbrushed. This was a delightful kit which has been fortunately re-issued by Mark I with new decals and schemes (so I have several in my stash ). Thanks for looking Miguel
  22. Me.262A-1a & P-51B Combat Set (03711) 1:72 Revell Believe it or not (most of you will), the technologically advanced Messerschmitt Me.262 and the P-51 Mustang did actually square off against each other in the skies over Germany. Not many P-51Bs would have still been in service, but even though there was a huge difference in top speed, the doughty Mustang shot down a number of these shark-like fighters, especially at the weaker points of their flight envelope during take-off and landing, where the low spool-up of the jet engines made them an easier target.
  23. Search and Rescue "Good Bye" Set 1/72 Revell (05683) For decades, the sea rescue cruisers of the Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Rettung Schiffbrüchiger (DGzRS) and the Sea King helicopters of the German Navy have been part of the Search and Rescue (SAR) service in all weather conditions on the North and Baltic Seas. One of the most enduring aircraft of the post-war period, the Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King flew for the first time in 1959. Although no longer in production, the Sea King continues to serve with air arms around the world, including those of Canada, Ge
  24. UH-60 Transport Helicopter (04976) 1:72 Revell More commonly known as the Blackhawk, the UH-60 was engineered to be a successor to the UH-1 Huey, and came into service at the very end of the 70s, with an early crash of one of the airframes proving the claims to improve survivability, with all crew walking away from a crash that would have made casualties of them all in a Huey. The aircraft had many modern avionics systems built-in when first released, and has undergone a number of updates to improve engine power, a fly-by-wire avionics system with glass cockpit t
  25. Hawker Tempest Mk.V (03851) 1:32 Revell The Tempest was an attempt by Sidney Camm's team at Hawker to resolve the promising Typhoon's main shortfalls, which although they were few, were important enough for them to warrant throwing a lot of time and money at their resolution. As far as attempts go, it was pretty successful, but it left us modellers with a fairly confusing array of designs that look substantially different from each other, let alone the Typhoon. The over-thick wing of the Typhoon had resulted in too much drag, so this was ditched and r
