  1. I'd been modelling for about 5 years When i built the revell shuttle with boosters ,a christmas present in 1980 or 1981 ,i loved sci-fi and space back then and it was a temporary distraction from aircraft ,it wasn't my best or one of my most favourite builds but i remember it lasted amongst the longest on my shelf ,and i was always moving it around to accommodate the next best model,usually a ww2 fighter or a light bomber in 72nd scale, i always wanted to have a go at refurbishing it,but its long gone now ,broken down for a kit bash i remember(badly). So I'll have another go at build
  2. Ready for inspection is my Revell 1:72 Nieuport 28 C-1. I built the kit straight as it came from the box, using Vallejo acrylics. I brought the kit at a model show a few years ago, and it is fair to say it was old and battered. That said, apart from removing excess flash, and an ill fitting top wing, it went together nicely. The colour scheme was a treat to airbrush, lots of masking for the red and white striped fuselage which really makes the aircraft stand out. Thanks for looking.
  3. Hi all This has been a bit of a long build which started in 2015 as part of a Group Build. Needless to say I did not finish, as building the Loft conversion I have been doing at home for the past 3 and a half years and work, family got in the way. However seeing all the fellow BM'ers doing shelf of doom builds I got inspired to do a few shelf of Doom builds myself. This is one along with the 48th Westland Whirlwind I posted in June and a 48th Seahawk which is still ongoing but has also been receiving lots of extra correcting etc. The WIP for this build is here
  4. First serious bit of modelling I've attempted in about forty years – so guess that makes me a newbie! My first experience of photoetch, acrylics, airbrush... you name it. So I wanted to do a subject I felt a connection to, and something that would stretch me to the max. So it's Revell's 1/32 Schnellbomber which will assume the guise of 4D+DH 'Dora Heinrich' of 1.KG30.
 This Ju 88A-1 fell to the guns of 603 (City of Edinburgh) Squadron on 16/10/39 during a Luftwaffe raid on RN ships in the Firth of Forth. 'Dora' was the first enemy bomber downed by the RAF over the British mainland in WWII, a
  5. Hi folks, This is my attempt at building the 1/24 McLaren 570 from Revell. I have used the Plamoz wheels and also their detail-up set (resin engine hood, PE parts). Painted with Tamiya lacquer paints (LP20 for the body and a mix LP5/LP19 for the darker parts like roof and side scoops). 2K clear cote from ZP. Interior color is a Ferrari leather color (cuoio) from ZP. Alloys sprayed with Tamiya primer/ Tamiya black / Alclad polished aluminium. I reworked the ride height and wheel alignment because the kit is way off in my humble opinion. I am quite happy with the result.
  6. My next build is Revell's 1:72 Nieuport 28 C-1. This is a vintage kit I picked up at Abingdon airshow a couple of years ago. This kit was the choice of my son who has recently been paying War Thunder on his xbox, flying various biplanes. Its been a while since I have built a biplane, and I had forgotten how small and minimal they are. The box is a little battered, and has pictures of the various schemes available to build. There are minimal instructions, a small decal sheet that shows its age, and 2 small brown sprues. These have varying amounts of flash on them, as you
  7. I really should not be doing this as I already have 3 kits on the go and another 2 lined up for the Spitfire/Seafire GB, and the Buccaneer STGB is looming on the horizon but what the heck. This is the first of maybe 2 builds for this GB. As a teenager in the 1960's it took a while before I became aquainted with Italian aircraft from WWII. In fact I think it is true to say I had no knowledge at all until I started buying the fighter volumes 1-4 from William Green's series "Warplanes" published by Macdonalds starting in 1963 with Vol 3 Japan and Russia. Coincidentally I saw and bough
  8. Hi folks I have the Red Arrows boxing of the Hawk kit which is missing the whole glasing spruce. I’ve heard that you must quote the latest product code (The black hawk). Could somebody please provide me with the part numbers for the whole clear sprue from the black kit, so I can try the Revell spares request. Steve.
  9. To fill in some time for when the heron is put to the side (although it will be coming back shortly), I decided to start a kit that I had heard good about, and that is the Revell 1/144 F14 D 'Super Tomcat' Im not the biggest fan of fast jets, but i decided to give this a go. I had always thought that the F14 was a little over rated, but now i know why, it is an absolutely gorgeous aircraft. Despite the small scale of this kit, the engineering of this is fantastic, no fitting issues, no filler (apart from filling in some heavy handedness from my blade) and not hardly any join
  10. Hello forum, I'm embarking on a modelling project and was looking at the Revell 1/96th scale Spanish Galleon (Revell H-367) and the current 1/96th scale Revell Man O'War (Revell 05429). However, they do not seem to be in scale with one another? Am I missing something here?
  11. I see that Hannants has finally received stock on Revell's new 1/72 Ju.88A-1 kit. The cost of shipping to Canada is rather prohibitive so I'll have to wait for a retailer in Canada or the U.S. to get them in. Even though I will not be getting one of these kits as quickly as I'd like, it has not stopped me from examining pictures of the parts. No surprise that Revell has used their A-4 kit with the appropriate changes for the A-1 variant. The one thing that I am wondering about are the exhausts for the engines. I wonder if Revell has erred in this regard? I have not
  12. Lancaster B.Mk.III LM739 'GROGS the SHOT' No. 100 Squadron R.A.F. Elsham Wold April 1945 Here is my entry to the Avro Lancaster STGB, built from the Revell kit with some PE for the interior along with a couple of bits of scratching, replacement resin wheels and gun barrels. I amended the radiator intakes slightly and the same with the wing dihedral. Overall not a bad kit at all but with some contentious shapes here and there; I chose to replace the mid upper turret and fairing with parts from the Airfix 'Dambuster' kit. Weathered with oil paints and Tamiya powders.
  13. Unfortunately it seems my ego's writing checks my body can't cash... Picked this up from ebay the other day, what a superb kit and amazing value for money! Why am I trying to to shoehorn this into the final month before the GB deadline? As usual there's a story behind it (very short, and can be found in this thread): So basically, this got moved to the top of the pile and has to be built! The previous Hornet I just completed took just over a month, so it's definitely possible with the lockdown still in force. Was thinking of building Maverick'
  14. Here is the second of my Hunters, again the excellent Revell 1/72 Hawker Hunter F6 kit built OOB. Hawker Hunter F6 of 14 Sqn, RAF Gutersloh from 1962. Additional decals from Xtradecal and as usual, painted using mainly Xtracolor enamels finished with Humbrol satin cote. Here's a few pictures of both of the Hunters together......
  15. Finally got my mojo back after a couple of recent disappointing efforts and decided to do two Hunters at the same time. Here is my Hawker Hunter FR10 of 4 Sqn, RAF Gutersloh from 1969. I used the excellent Revell 1/72 Hunter FGR9 kit with a Quickboost nose which I whittled down to try and get the correct shape. I don't think it's come out too bad, maybe not the most accurate but it doesn't look too bad on a 1/72 kit. Xtradecals and decals from the stash used and painted mainly using Xtracolor enamels with the Humbrol satin cote over the top.
  16. Already posted in the vehicle section, but the diorama aspect posted here too... Revell 1949 Mercury rust rod, posed against a scrcatchbuilt street and wall. The base is a Hobbycraft frame, cut to size. The wall is made from foam board with the outer card layer taken off then marked up. The road surface is 1200 grade wet and dry paper. Phone booth from Doozy in resin is superb, and the LED lights are from smallscalelights.co.uk, who I highly recommend. Street light is scracth built from brass & plastic tube, with a 'bag stud' used s the shade and LED light from the same sour
  17. Hello everyone , i just finished the Uh-1 from Revell . In 1/24 Scale ! Amazing beast, very huge. Gotta say im very satisfied with the result. Gotta need a bigger place to put it on. The model overall is very nice , good fit. I paint the model with Olive drab color from Mr.Color number 304. And add some White to the mixture to lighten up the model. Decal is the hardest part, but only the shark mouth decal. If you cut the decal in half , it will be better to control it. And the decal on the slide door is tricky, you must apply the decal first then glue the handle on. And the rest is easy.
  18. Time to bite the bullet. Back in May I was asked by a friend of mine to build a Tonka for him. There was one on 56Sqn that he worked on regularly and that's the one he wants built, but could I actually do 2. 1 for him, 1 for someone else on the Sqn. "Not a problem" Said I. "What scale??" Errrrrrr. I'd like So big, Right, 1/48. Never having built that scale, this is going to be fun. I managed to track down 2 and was about to go extras shopping when the offer of the Eduard kit happened, so now, I have 3 - 1 for me! So, here we go! The last Revell I build was their 1/72 Lancaster,
  19. This is my version of the great Revell Lockheed PV-1 Ventura, the plane that replaced the Hudson. Apparently much reviled by the RAF (unmaneuverable and under-armed) , it was put to wide use by the USAAF (amongst others). This is BuNo 48891, flown by Lt. ‘Butch’ Mason, based in Attu, Alaska, 1944; part of numerous bombing sorties in the Pacific, the plane was finally lost at sea in 1945. Revell’s kit is a fantastic build - large parts that fit together cleanly, unfussy engineering and a decent degree of detail. It was nearly all OOB, with just the addition of an Airfix pilot and
  20. My latest completion and I must admit I am a bit chuffed with it Revell 1949 Mercury that I was originally going to do a replica of the Badlands film car. However after a coat of black it looked a bit dull, so I re-thought it and decided to do a rust rod. Painted with MIG rust tones/hairspray/grey/varnish/hairspray/green/varnish to get the result. I then had a rush of blood to the head and thought lighting would be a good idea, so got some LED 's from Smallscalelights.co.uk which were great (and the service was excellent). Base and wall are scratchbuilt as is the street lamp (wi
  21. My first build is still on a slow plane from Japan, so I needed something else to keep me out of mischief. I fancied the Tamiya 1/48 Su-122 but a bit of research revealed they weren't built in huge numbers and didn't serve very widely or very long, so I had to quickly cobble together plan C. Revell had an Su-100 available. A bit of cross referencing revealed it was a rebox of the old Zvezda kit that reviews say is simple and basically accurate. What sealed the deal is the Revell boxing includes decals for a three colour Syrian example from 1970. Sold!! Once again the k
  22. Kit: Revell (Germany) B-17G Decals: Lifelike, Kits World Paint: Alclad, Gunze/Mr.Hobby Interior shots here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234921988-boeing-b-17g/ A full detailed build review will be featured in the next edition of IMPS Austria's "Panorama" Magazine. Thanks for looking. Roman
  23. "Take her to sea, Mr. Murdoch. Let's stretch her legs." Captain E. Smith. My favourite quote, and scene, from the 1997 film set aboard the RMS Titanic which was the largest ship afloat on 15 April 1912. She was a beautiful greyhound of her time and her incredibly sad fate still captures our imagination today. This is the Revell 1/570th scale kit of the RMS Titanic, it was first released in 1970 and my parsimonious wife snagged it for £10.50 from M&S on Boxing Day, 2012. It isn't a detailed kit but I have enjoyed building it as one of my 'Covid-19' projects with very few scale m
  24. Hi all, I follow the forum as guest for a long time, but now decided to sign up and participate. Here's my latest build. MIG-25 doesn't need any presentation. For the kit itself is a very nice one. Made it OOB. . First thing i build from the kit was the wheels to do that comparison, lol. Thx.
  25. The kit is intended to simulate meshes on aircraft models F/A-18E/F in 1/32 scale produced by Revell. Made of steel with a thickness of 0.05 mm.
