  1. Let the whistle blow on this build - I've been accumulating pieces for some months. There's still not a dedicated etch set though White Ensign Models have heavily hinted. There are however, sets for HMS Cornwall that she shared most characteristics with. This Family of 13 Cruisers were built in the 1920's under the limits of The Washington Naval Treaty 1922, with an upper weight limit of 10,000 tons. HMS Kent was launched in 1926 and spent the pre war years largely on the China Station. She diiffered from others such as HMS Berwick and Cornwall with never having a seaplane han
  2. The box has been sat on the floor of my office taunting me for a week or so now whilst I've worked on the Harrier, but as that's basically done I can now start contemplating this monster The decks have been cleared( or at least as clear as it's likely to get) so tomorrow is a new day and a new build...
  3. Hallo Now a very different WIP. Different in many ways. I finished last week my RE.8 from WW1. Here I got to a climax in my ability, which satisfied me really. This was the impetus to change the subject, to jets again. And here to continue in my MIG series. After 15 , 17 and 19 and a batch of 21s. The challenge for me is to get the right touch on the external paint. This is a grey with a metallic shine. Like on so many MIGs. Ok, so I took this challenge and tried something. I knew, all I did in the past did not meet the subject in a satisfying way.
  4. Hi folk's,my build fits in with my 1/32 groove at the moment and an aircraft I had never seen or heard of before, a nicely molded kit and one of Trumpeters early releases it scales out about the size of a Spitfire seems to be a straightforward breakdown of parts too.I'll crack on with this then if time permits I have the mighty SR 71 Blackbird in the stash waiting to be built.
  5. The Build log is here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235070426-1350-hms-kent-county-class-cruiser-1941/ Thanks are due to Richard Dennis @dickrd and Jamie Duff @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies for their considerable input into the Colour scheme, which differs substantially from previous interpretations. I've made extensive use of 3 D printed items from https://micromaster.co.nz/ which IMHO have set new standards in small scale detailed realism
  6. Happy New Year, guys! Inspired by the work of the esteemed Rob, I began to build my version of the heavy cruiser HMS "Berwick" based on Trumpeter's "Cornwall". Doing Berwick for November 1940, before the battle at Cape Spartivento. I would like to make a stormy sea typical for this time of year. Like my previous projects, I plan to use a mini aftermarket details and everything that I can modify myself (I have nowhere to rush!). I also want to make my own crew figures. I think it will not be as difficult as it seems - firstly, in fresh weather there should not be many sai
  7. Hello fellows, Let me show you my new project. The Trumpeter P-47 Thunderbolt, bubbletop, "2 Big and too Heavy", in 1/32 scale. As you know, this Tumpeter's model has a lot of interior details, which I'll try to made visible...(at least some of them). And here some pics...; this is the real bird, and the Trumpeter art box. As usual, I've started with the cockpit: As aftermarket, I only bought the Yahu Instrument panel. In my opinion It's worthy,
  8. The long expected 1/48th fighter-bomber variants from the "Flogger" are in the 2015/2016 Trumpeter programme - ref.05801 - MiG-23BN "Flogger-H" - ref.05802 - MiG-27 "Flogger-D" - http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234996487-148-mig-27-flogger-d-by-trumpeter-released-nose-correction-set-in-design-by-cold-war-studio/ - ref.05803 - MiG-27M "Flogger-J" - http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235004894-148-mig-27m-flogger-j-new-variant-by-trumpeter-released/ Source: https://www.facebook.com/ScaleModels.ru/photos/a.632237406802735.1073741827.1293105
  9. Making a spot for the start of this build HMS York heavy cruiser got the kit for a bargain at the last show Bolton I managed to get to before everything fell apart. Since then I have acquired a few extras ( The BIG BOY'S came around honest ) to go with it mostly for her sister ship Exeter but sure I can make them fit and very inspired by @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies and @robgizlu builds I will be attempting the same camouflage as the box art a bit like Rob's HMS Berwick build light grey and dark grey 507C and 507B I think I have that right.
  10. Trumpeter is to release a 1/24th Junkers Ju-87A Stuka kit - ref. 02420 A test build was on display at the All Japan Model & Hobby Show 2016.

  11. Hello everyone, I have been a long time lurker, but I've just plucked up enough courage to post one of my own builds, H.M.S. Cornwall by Trumpeter, and Eduard's Big Ed kit, chinese barrels and wooden decks. I know there will be discrepancies and mistakes made not just by me, but Trumpeter and Eduard too, but this I'm not here to discuss them just now. Oh and this is the first model I have made for about 15 years and the first time I've ever used P.E.! I have to say I did really enjoy building it, even though, at times i found the PE kit incredibly frustrating

    Rooikat

    Hello, I'm very excited by this GB, and my first entry will be Trumpeter's Rooikat AFV in South African service. The vehicles are used for reconnaissance and in the tank destroyer role. They entered service around 1990 and took part in the South African and Botswanan 1998 intervention in Lesotho. About 250 of these decidedly strange looking vehicles are still active. The Trumpeter kit looks pretty nice, but these tie downs on the turret could use replacement...or at least some kind of camouflage netting to conceal their solidness. Im not lookin
  13. After the Graf Spee, what else could I assemble but the HMS Exeter. I got the kit several months ago, and have been adding some aftermarkets for a better experience, like: 1. Eduard Big Ed PE, 2. Infini models Brass Masts, 3. Scale Chain 4. Master Model 8" barrels 5. Master Model 4" barrels 6. Wooden base (same as used for the Graf Spee) it will be a waterline model The length of the HMS Exeter vs the Graf Spee surprised me, it does not seem too much shorter. Marco
  14. Quite surprisingly still no trace nor rumour - even from Chinese modellers homepages - about the Trumpeter catalogue 2021-2022. V.P.
  15. Hello. This is my second chopper build and its in a big scale. 1/35 Trumpeter kit painted in Myanmar Air Force colors. OOB build with some scratch details added. Hope you like it.
  16. Hallo So, actually almost finished. The areal is not done yet. The goal was all spraying, and no use of any decal. Well, let me know what you think about this! Happy modelling
  17. My next build is Trumpeter's 1:72 British Wyvern S.4. I'm quite excited about this build as it will be my first kit made by Trumpeter, and it looks fantastic. The box art is stunning, and entice you right in. The instruction booklet is large with clear and beautiful pictures, as is the colour scheme/ decal sheet. There are 5 grey sprues with a nice amount of detail and no flash. There is a small clear sprue, and large decal sheet which contains a film piece for the instrument panel. I plan to build it straight from the box, using Vallejo acrylics, with the
  18. While forced to stay at home, time to build is available rather abundant. So, a new kist has been opened after finishing the M1 gun (see The first carrier is ready to receive it's base color:
  19. An exercice of style with this oceanic vignette made in a GB initiate in my modelling club of witch i'm a recent member. I was very curious of making such a stuff. the trumpeter kit is stunning and i had just replaced the masts. It was a pleasure to paint and weathering it. There is some scratch work on the Glen. Most of all, i'm very proud of the albatross And the final result : See you ! Fabrice http
  20. Hi everyone This is my 1/72 Su-24 by Trumpeter. The kit has nice recessed panel lines and rivets. The fit was good apart from the intakes and the nose which had a bit of sanding required. The landing gear were well detailed as well as the landing gear bays which had raised rivets and structure. Ak real colours Mig 31/25 was used for the grey and white primer for the underside. The decals were good but the stars and bull wouldn't conform to the panel lines and rivets even after many applications of micro sol. In the end, I just pushed the decal into the rivets with a needle. I mixed black
  21. Hi folks, Firstly - I'm aware of the great build threads (with fix observations) that have been posted here on BM - the some excellent thoughts and input - you there Bill? What I'd like to get together here is a definitive list of errors - with dimensional/photographic proof. So - looking out for theories/physical measurements/photographic evidence... Reason - I *really* love the Lightning and I doubt we'll ever get another in 1:32. And IMHO there is a lot that's good - we've got injection moulded 1:32 Lightnings for one! Sooo - am looking at making up some 'corr
  22. Hallo Now this is a matter of a big project. Because 3 Panzer IV with interior are in my stash. I want to build them starting with Bergepanzer from Trumpeter, and Ausführung J from MiniArt and after that from RFM. The MiniArt kit is the guideline. Because this kit from MiniArt is the best of all. In detail and color instruction. Also the website is also a marvelous guideline. The Bergepanzer will have the same color pattern as the late version J. So, actually I intend to build my Bergepanzer in a late version. After 1943. With one book about the versions of Panzer IV I hope to g

Trumpeter is to release two new 1/32nd variants from the North American F-100 Super Sabre. - ref. 02246 - North American F-100F Super Sabre - ref. 03221 - North American F-100C Super Sabre Source: http://www.ipmsdeutschland.de/Ausstellungen/Nuernberg2020/Bilder_AT/index.html Box art on display at the Nurnberg Toy Fair 2020.

  24. Hello All, I have been looking at all of the group builds on Britmodeller the last week or so thinking what ones can I join (I would like to join a few but I must be realistic). My modelling time has been short of late as in August I was made redundant from my job when the 80% furlough scheme finished (yeah - funny that!) and I then started another job 3 weeks later (yes I know I was lucky there). I have thanked my old place of employment for playing for my holiday with my redundancy money and the deposit for a new car (70 plate Nissan Juke if you must know). I now work for the
