  1. This is the Revell boxig of the Hasegawa 190 D-9. I finished this one quite some time ago (ahem this time last year), so here are some rather poor, very late photos of its best side...
  2. So after an 11 year break, this was my first model that I had a go at and luckily it got me back into modelling, but I made so many mistakes whilst making it. My biggest problem is rushing near the end of completion and not letting things dry, but I have learned my lesson and on my last model which was the Pirelli Golf it turned out really well. I was really pleased with the paintwork on this, but I reckon by the time I had finished its had 2 full rattle cans on it, but it had a lovely shine once I polished it up, and the decals sat pretty nicely on it. So this is not perfect by a long way, but it made me fool in love with a hobby that I had been doing on and off for over 40 years.
  3. While working on Academy F-18F 1/72 I'm posting pictures of few months old build of F-101B Voodoo (Revell kit 04854, mold from '91). OOB build, Vallejo acrylic paints.
  4. Hi all, Here's my place holder for the GB. I'll be doing the Matchbox or Revell 1/72 Supermarine Stranraer. As I mentioned previously I've got both versions......well nearly, so as they say 'pick the bones out of that!' which is what I'll have to do!: and to quote Wikipedia: "The Supermarine Stranraer was a 1930s flying boat designed and built by the British Supermarine Aviation Works company principally for the Royal Air Force. It entered operations in 1937 and many were in service at the outbreak of the Second World War undertaking anti-submarine and convoy escort patrols." The only work completed so far is to replicate (vac form) the lower wings from one kit (Revell) to enable me to build the second (Matchbox) kit: So the question is will I do one or two examples of the 'whistling Sh!£house' Cheers, Mark.
  5. Here is my Revell 1:72 Mistel 5 (He 162A-2 & Arado E.377a) which I built back in 2003 representing a fictional operational combo of 6./KG200. This was a reissue of the Dragon kit. Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome Miguel
  6. Here is the first of three Revell 1:144 Hawker Hunters I built back in 2007 using decals from the Xtradecal sheet. It is Hunter FR.71A 734 (ex-RAF XF317), of Grupo 8, Fuerza Aérea de Chile, Antofagasta, Chile, in early 1990s. Apart from flattening the nose tip for the camera port and adding the aerials specific for Chilean Hunters, the rest was built OOB. The kit was painted by brush and varnished with airbrush. Thank you for looking and all comments are welcome Miguel
  7. With the broadening of the criteria for eligible countries one of my favourites has now become possible to build and that is Yugoslavia. I have been interested in the Yugoslav Air Force for a while, not least because of it's very interesting mix of aircraft it has operated from a variety of different sources including Western countries such as the UK and USA and also the USSR, not to mention aircraft which were captured by partisans from the Germans and then used against them. Another source was aircraft given to them as a form of war reparations payment and the example I'm going to build falls into that category. The individual aircraft has had a very interesting life as werk number 610937 was originally built as a G-14 but was then re-built as a G-10 and was used by either the Luftwaffe or Hungarian Air Force from Austria at the end of the war where she was found abandoned at Zeltweg and was ferried to Bulgaria along with a lot of other 109's by Bulgarian Air Force pilots to be used by the Bulgarians to equip some of their squadrons. It did not remain in Bulgaria long as in 1947 she was sent to Yugoslavia along with quite a few others and became part of the Yugoslav Air Force where she was flown by either the 83rd or 172nd Fighter Wing based at Cerkje airfield and may well have taken part in defensive patrols during the dispute with Ital over Trieste. After 3 years service she was retired (with only 35 hours 15 mins on the clock) and sent to a technical school in Belgrade. She then went to Yugoslav Aviation Museum in 1978 but was then sold to Doug Arnold in the UK in 1984 and then sold again to Evergreen ventures in Florida where her old skin was removed and scrapped (!!!!!!) and re-skinned and re=painted as an aircraft flown by Eric Hartman and she is on display in the USA, whew, what a journey! I will be using Revell's old (but still good) 1/48 Bf-109 G-10 which has come in various boxes over the years including being boxed as a K-4 which is the boxing I will be using; I bought this kit second hand a few years ago and a lot of the parts are off the sprues and some painting has been done to the cockpit area but nothing has been glued together, yet! Here are a couple of pics of all the bits as they stand at the minute; And the all important decal sheet from Lift Here of Serbia; And the options that can be built from the sheet; If you couldn't tell, as all the other options on the sheet are not G-10's, I will be building the 3rd option down which happens to sport a very nice and unusual colour scheme which is correct as I have seen pictures of the aircraft before it was butchered in America. I'm really looking forward to this build and this GB . Thanks for looking in. Craig.
  8. I am far from an expert on Tornadoes, and I've found in my stash the Airfix GR.4/GR.4A kit. This has some pretty old looking parts for the majority of the airframe, and what is clearly a couple of sprues of newer parts to add on to make the GR4/4A version. From everything I have read, the Revell GR1 is by far the best option for a Tornado in 1/72, so my question is... Is it a viable option to use the newer Airfix parts to convert the Revell GR1 to a GR4? Is there any advice anyone can offer on things to look out for if I go down this route? Are there are any other changes I'd need to make to the Revell kit, besides adding the various parts from the Airfix kit? The other option is to simply build the Revell kit as is, possibly as an Op Granby aircraft, but I'd quite like to convert it to a GR4 and use a Model Alliance Op Telic decal sheet I seem to have acquired years ago and forgot all about.
  9. Hi, I am trying to build the Revell Titanic and it has simple rigging on it. I have got to a part where I have to thread two pieces of he supplied cord through one 0.5mm hole. I am really struggling to do this and am wondering if anyone has any tips. I ave to thread two cords through one hole in the deck in order to support the masts :-) Apologies if there is already something on the forum about this but I cannot find it. Thanks A frustrated modeller!
  10. Hi All, I don't normally build in this scale but this is an Aircraft I have always liked, and I have never done Work in Progress either so I thought I would combine the two. I'm really sorry but don't know how to create a link (it would be great if somebody could tell me). I did a WIP so that I could use it as a learning experience and wow did I learn. I wont ramble on about the build as those who are interested can check it out. All I can say is that I nearly lost the will to live with this one and more than once it nearly ended up in the bin of doom. Anyway here's the finished product. Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are welcome.
  11. Revell Eurofighter in 3 Squadron anniversary scheme. Kit built OOB and not the easiest of kits to build. The decals were from Xtradecal and were an Ebay win, but they turned into a nightmare to apply due to them breaking up, presumably from age or poor storage. To cover the terrible transfers i dirtied the plane up a little using crushed pencil graphite.
  12. Hi all, If you've been following my WIP thread on this, you'll know the trials and tribulations I've gone through to get this finished. The cockpit walls had to be detailed, the flaps lowered and scratchbuilt, a new windscreen home made after the original disintegrated, problems getting the gloss coat to set, decals which wrinkled and refused to respond to MicroSol...you name it. Anyway, here it is after 67 hours work, in the best trainer scheme the Hawk ever wore in my opinion. Excuse the photography, natural light has been hard to come by today... Now, what's next..? Cheers, Dean
  13. Hi All Here’s my latest completion, the Revell 1/48 Chinook HC.Mk.1 depicting ZA671 with artwork celebrating the 75th anniversary of 7 Sqn back in 1989. This one was chosen from the stash by sister who was visiting from the UK and who is well used to the sound of these things whomping away in the distance back home…..thanks Sis ! After the marathon of the two SEAC B-24s of last year, I was hoping that this one would be a little quicker and easier. But while the kit itself didn’t present too many problems, it did still take me about 4 months to complete. Years before I bought the kit, I’d snapped up the Italeri detail set at a pretty good 90% off; I used the relevant parts of this with much of it invisible in the cockpit unfortunately. I added a couple of bits of wire to the searchlight, hoists and hooks, and weathering is pretty much restricted to replicating a dusty floors, tyres and steps. I didn’t get around to fitting the rear ramp actuators, and that suits me fine because I prefer it with the ramp door poised semi closed to show the Chinook shape off a bit better. So, here it is, comments good bad or indifferent welcome as usual. Cheers Gaz Thanks for looking in
  14. The 109 build continues. Firstly the old Revell Bf109G-10. Nice simple kit but goes together quickly and easily. Finished with Xtracrylix RLM 74,75, 76 and with Model Alliance decals from sheet ML489028 1. 2. 3. 4. Next, a Hasegawa Bf109K-4. Very nice kit. Finished in RLM 76, 75 and 82 and with the it decals. 1. 2. 3. 4.
  15. Hi Guys, this is my first attempt at a Work in Progress. I thought would give it a shot not because I have anything to offer by way of modelling skills, but hopefully some of you more experienced builders may be able to give me some tips along the way. This is not the scale I normally build in I prefer 1/72, I always feel that when things go wrong in this scale the fault tends to be magnified. So this is the beast I intend building. I have acquired. a fondness for jets with recent builds and picked this one up at a bargain price at my local Hobbycraft. I had already made a start before I decided to do a Work in Progress. I normally like to display my aircraft models in flight but this one will sit on its wheels for a couple of reasons one being its too big to display in flight, and the other being I don't have a suitable pilot to put in it. So a little more detail was required with cockpit and this is where we at. Straight out of the box with the addition of some Tamiya tape seat belts. Some preparation paint work on the fuselage halves. Now came the fun bit attaching the completed cockpit to the fuselage halve. Well its in but it wasn't pretty, I initially tried to fit it to the other side but there was no way it was going to sit in there with the back of the tub lined up at the back, and the console lined up at the front. So out it came with a lot of cussing and swearing, this was not a good start. I looked at Lord Riot's build thread and found that he and other modelers had encountered the same problem, I believe it was because the base that the tub sits on is bent. Any it became a step by step gluing process and with a lot of patience it is in! Now all that I have to do is glue the two sides together, after quite a lot of test fitting I came to the conclusion that this was not going to be straight forward, very little lined up and the plastic in some places was quite flimsy. So I decide a little assistance would be necessary. In this and the previous image you can see that I have added some additional tabs to try and give it some structural stability. Well the fuselage halves are together and I can already see that there is going to be quite a lot of filling and sanding in my future, it took a long time to get them anything like lined up and without the additional support I put in I think it would have been a lot worse. Now, the ironic thing is I started this thread so I could throw out questions like is it tail sitter? and guess what i forgot to put any weight in the nose at all so it might just end up in flight after all! Watch this space .
  16. So... The project AIRBUS A300-600ST BELUGA that was started in Sep'16 is completed now. Original body: Airbus A300-600ST BELUGA Model: Revell 04206 Scale: 1/144 Aftermarket parts: no Livery: Airbus Beluga first roll-out and flight color scheme It was challenging project, but not all things I kept in mind was realized here. Anyway, to be honest, I like the result . Initially, it was quite old mid-quality Revell kit and ordinary livery in the box (as for me). Of course, white modern Airbus home livery is good but do not expect you'll get bright model on your shelf after completion... Looking for detailed photos of Beluga, I've found some interesting pics of first roll-out and flight and finally decided to make my model with this painting scheme! I've collected almost all photos of Beluga from that time period. At least, all available in inet . It is just 8 pics, +2 videos. That is all I had for start... Link to build (WIP):
  17. And for my first post I give you something you've all probably seen a million times over A bit of background, I got the modelling bug when I was about 8, received my first kits, an F-5 and an ME262, both Airfix, back then I produced some pretty nasty pieces of work, although it's to be expected at that age. I then stopped for a bit after the age of 11, dabbled with certain kits at certain times as and when I felt like it, and the bug came back to me when I was 16, just over a year ago. The particular kit I am about to show you is one which I have had for most of this time, and I'm thankful that I did. because I don't think I could look back on such a model, but enough drivel about the past, lets get on with the kit, and the project: I am intending to create a lineup of at least 3 F-16 models, I only have one for the moment, however I will get more when the time comes, hopefully the gap between each build isn't too long, however I suppose you never know until it happens... The first of the models is this one: It's Revell's boxing of the F-16AM, in Tigermeet 09 livery, which I've always been too scared to touch because I want it to be perfect, however it seemed the perfect model to practice airbrushing with as the paintjob itself is pretty simple, the rest is just decals. The boxart is quite nice... Obligatory sprue shot, note the bent decal sheet as they didn't actually fit in the box... (You're going to have to excuse the sideways shot there) Unfortunately it had some loose parts too: I started building with the tail, seems like a good place to start, What got me was how where the small pointy bits were (If anyone could shed some light as to what they are that would be wonderful), there were, what appeared to be scratches which looked slightly like lightning... Only on one side however... The instructions stated to put this bit in where the L shape is inside the chute pit (I'm really bad with the whole terminology thing you're going to have to excuse me here), however I found that putting it above the L shape made it more accurate, otherwise it would seem too low: And the final picture for today, the main gear well has been constructed, fun times. (The flash exposed the ejector pin marks, I shall clean them up in just a bit) That's all for today, hopefully I've got everything right with regards to forum standards and everything Any comments, criticisms, advice, you name it, is welcome, and I look forward to getting involved with this forum. Thanks for reading.
  18. VF-17 "Jolly Rogers" F4U-1A White 3 - Lt Frederick "Big Jim" Streig Bougainville 1944. This is the Revell kit brush painted OOTB. At 1/72 scale it provides a lot of nice detail at a low price. A few fit issues were overcome during the build, and it was an enjoyable project. TFL Cheers Greg
  19. Hello all, Laid low with the lurgy at the moment, so I thought I'd get round to updating you on my latest build...the Revell 1/32 Hawk: Note the Argos stock label on it - like many of us probably, I hot footed it down to the local Argos when these first came out as I believe they were one of the only places stocking it. Then it's sat in the stash ever since. That was 2010! About time I made one... I'd also splashed out on the Xtradecal stencil sheet, and their squadron markings sheet, as I didn't want to build a Red Arrows jet: I've always had a fancy for the late seventies RAF trainer scheme, ever since it first appeared in the Airfix catalogue when I was a kid, so I'll be doing this scheme: One difference - the nose ID number 164 will be in white, not black, as I prefer it that way. Luckily I found a photo of this airframe with the number in white, so it will still be accurate. The cockpit is reasonably well detailed, and the instrument decals do their job well enough, settling down well over the raised bezels: The only place the cockpit falls down is on the sidewalls, which are devoid of ANY detail whatsoever. All of this had to be added from scratch: Adding a couple of resin seats completes the ensemble: I'd ordered the early style headboxes on the seats, as you can't get much earlier in the Hawk's career than this! Then it was on to the notorious short-shot undercarriage. I added various bits and pieces to replace the missing compression struts, and also added brake lines and tie wraps: I filed flats onto the tyres, and painted everything up. The wheel centre caps have still to be added here, and according to some references the main wheel rims were painted yellow so I'm still deciding whether to do that with mine: The wheel wells were well detailed OOB, so I just used a wash to highlight things: One notable problem with the kit is that there is no facility to have the flaps dropped, which is how Hawks are ALWAYS parked. I sliced off the flaps from the wings, scratch built them to an aerofoil section, and added the intermediate strip and supports using the mk1 eyeball and much poring over of reference photos. I'm hoping it'll work out ok: Before the fuselage halves could be joined, there was the little matter of all the glaring ports in the fuselage which would open onto the bare plastic interior. There are about five of them, which all had to be dealt with using a short length of tube glued to the inside of the fuselage to give depth, and then blanked off. So, ready to close the fuselage - oops, no, the forward cockpit bulkhead is a completely different shape to the interior of the fuselage at that point! It left a gap of about an eighth of an inch between the halves, which no amount of filler would solve. I had to file off quite a bit of the bulkhead sides to get the fuselage to close: The rest of the seams weren't too bad, apart from the ones on the inside of the intakes - which due to the engineering of the kit means they CAN'T be assembled before adding them to the airframe, and makes sanding inside them that much more difficult... More when I've sorted out the photos, Dean
  20. Built a couple of years ago and a foray into 1/32 scale, here is my Revell Fw 190 F-8. I used an Eduard cockpit picked up cheap at a show, Eduard wheels and HGW belts. The kit was a bit of a disappointment after all the excitement of a new large scale Wurger - details are a bit heavy handed and the fit around the cowl was difficult. All in all though, an enjoyable kit. I preferred not to show the engine which, although quite well detailed, was a little heavy handed. The aircraft modelled was found abandoned in Southern Germany at the end of the war. It had originally been built as an A-8 but converted, possibly after battle damage, as an F-8. A couple of photographs exist of the machine with no canopy and, since I prefer the old style canopy and taut antenna wire, I used artistic license and surmised that the canopy was an old style one scavenged from another wreck. Markings were from EagleCals and the RLM 76/75/83 colours were courtesy of Gunge Mr aqueous hobby colour. As can be seen from the photographs, I didn't quite get the circular swirls quite right on the nose. Cheers Malcolm
  21. Afternoon all, My second effort for the GB will be Revell's 1/48 Stearman PT-17 Kaydet: The contents and the colour plan for my intended victim As you can see the contents are moulded in bright yellow shiny plastic and although there is some very nice fine detail currently its almost impossible to see: I can't wait to get some boring grey primer on this baby! Cheers, Mark.
  22. Here’s my first entry... Looks like a neat little kit. Hope to make start later. Dave
  23. At my son's request my next build is Revell's 1:72 Avro Lancaster B.Mk.III. I have just finished building a Shackleton, so it is going to be great comparing the kit's and aircraft. The iconic Lancaster bomber has rapidly become one of my favourite military aircraft, whether it is watching the BBMF displaying or visiting the haunting Mk. I on display in London, the sheer presence of the aircraft is thrilling. Anyway, back to the build! I am planning to build Lancaster B.MK.III, No.100 Squadron from RAF Elsham Wolds, 1945, with landing gear up. It will be a straight from the box build with the exception of Vallejo acrylic in place of Revell and a home made display stand. The box includes, detailed instructions, a set of decals and small clear sprue. There are also 6 white/grey sprues with little to no flash and a nice amount of detailing. Time for the fun to begin.
  24. Boeing B17F Memphis Belle Revell 1:72 The B17 Flying Fortress probably doesn't need an introduction, but it's professional to write one so I will ! It's birth originated from a competition with Douglas and Martin to supply a contract for 200 bombers to the USAAF in the 1930's. This was in part due to it's 4 engines configuration that gave benefits such as load capability and engine out performance, which as we know, would prove to be life saving in it's combat career. Early B17's had the slim rear fuselage with no rear turret, however, combat experience with the bomber proved a lack of effectiveness in the daylight offensive role, particularly with the RAF who used it early on in the war, so further development was required to learn from this experience. The E model introduced the more familiar shape with a much larger tail and rear gun position, new flush transparencies and more powerful engines to cope with the extra weight that evolution had brought upon it. From this was born the F model that was modified to increase combat range and payload. The B17 numerically was mostly employed over Europe by US Eighth Airforce in daylight attacks into Germany. It was realised here that the F model had inadequate firepower in the nose area as the German interceptors made good use of head on attacks. This experience brought about the infamous G model with a chin turret to fight off such attacks. The B17 was liked by it's crews due to the amount of punishment it could receive yet still get home. There's many images available showing B17's flying and back at home with huge sections and engines missing as a result of combat. The later variants had no less that 13 guns to fight off enemy attacks. Whilst it can be compared to the Lancaster, in many ways, it was very different. It was more heavily armed, but carried a much lighter bomb load due to it's primary role in daylight bombing unlike the Lancaster fighting it's war mostly at night. The kit The first thing you will notice is the huge box that the kit comes in with it's striking image of the infamous Memphis Belle across the front. Inside there are 8 light grey frets and a huge clear fret wrapped in 4 plastic bags. The fuselage and wing detailing utilises recessed panel lines. On first impressions these look to be a little heavy, but with paint on, they will tone done somewhat. I'm saying this based on completed models of the earlier G models that I've seen. One of the strong points of the modern Revell kits is the vast amount of interior detail you get and this one is no exception. Right through the fuselage, each compartment is nicely populated, the nose, cockpit, bomb bay, radio compartment, waste gun area and tail all have detail candy that not only adds interest, but increases the rigidity of the kit when it's glued together. The amount of detail is reflected in the instruction booklet that has no less than 86 steps to assemble the 235 parts together ! The B17 bristles with guns and turrets, so it's important that these areas are well represented. Revell has succeeded admirably with this. The guns are nicely detailed with dimpled barrels and the turrets all have plenty of detail in them. The wing spar is incorporated into the bomb bay assembly creating a rigid centre box on which to assemble the fuselage around. This is an area in which Revell have been clever in recent years in that you can leave the wings off until the finishing stages of your build then literally just slide them on to the spars at the last stage without having to worry about filler to blend the roots in. Another feature that stands out to me is the detail in the wheel bays. Fuel tanks and super charger ducting is visible. With the flaps dropped, the bomb bay open and the detailed wheel bays, it's almost a shame to stand the finished aircraft the right way up ! The only fault I've come across on my review is that one of the upper wing halves is warped. I don't think it will be a problem when mated with it's opposing half, and I'm not sure if it's a one off. There was a small amount of black residue on the kit that looks like oil or mould release agent, so whether there was an issue in manufacture on this kit I don't know. The Transparencies On the whole, this fret is impressive, but with one big let down that I'll come to shortly. The fret appears to be a universal one in that it provides parts for both the F and G models. Most of the parts are crisply moulded and will allow that glorious detail to be on show where they reside behind windows. The F model didn't have protruding cheek windows like the G did, instead it had flush windows, which in modelling terms are better because they will show off the interior detail better. What I like about the Revell kit in the cheek windows is that they are part of a larger clear piece so that you can fit them without the risk of spoiling them with glue, another well thought out feature. The ventral gun position in front of the tail can be modelled open or closed as can the waist gun windows. What I have noticed is that on the G model, the upper turret appears to sit too high to which there has been debate. Looking at the picture of the assembled model on the instructions here, this doesn't seem to be the case with the turret used on the F model. Indeed, the turret dome isn't as high as the G turret and the proportions look 'right'. Now for my only complaint on the clear components. The nose blister is far too thick. Having built the old Hasegawa one years ago which is excellent in this area, I feel the Revell part is very poor and I'm not quite sure why they let this happen. The nose blister is a prominent feature of the B17 and if fitted as standard, you will get a thick luminous ring around where it mates against the nose (as per their box photo). The only two options I can see here is fit an after market part if available or paint the rear surface to eliminate the luminous glow before fitting (or live with it !). The Decals Whilst the Memphis Belle is historically an important and infamous aeroplane and hence a great scheme to use for Revells marketing, it's quite a dull option as far as building a model is concerned unless you really want to build the Memphis Belle. This is where I'm really pleased with what Revell have done. They've provided a fantastic second option - The Shamrock Special. What I like about this is that it has the USAAF insignia's with the red surrounds and nose art, not just on both sides of the nose, but on the tail as well. I'll be building this option ! The decal sheet is in excellent register and the colours vibrantly printed. If you like your builds to have the stencils added, Revell have catered for you very nicely. Conclusion On the whole, this is a great kit. Revell have continued their trend of applying great engineering to a highly detailed model to provide excellent value for money. The interior is amazing, the open / closed options on gun positions, bomb bay and flaps is well designed and in general, the transparencies allow for the excellent interior to be shown off. Apart from the wing warp, the only let down in my opinion is the thick nose blister, however I've no doubt that this will be a success for Revell. Revell model kits are available from all good toy and model retailers. For further information visit
  25. So I have now finished the Golf and I must admit I am pretty pleased how it turned out, its not perfect but after an 11 year break it was a great little model to get stuck into.
