  1. Hello all, this is my little attempt at another 109. I've been trying to expand my techniques with this one and a few of the experiments have worked pretty well.....i think?! For the first i have really gone down the post-shading route and add to that more oil paint weathering, i had always been disappointed with my oil weathering but i found the flaw in my technique....its wasnt done on a matt finish, so problem solved me thinks. Painted with Gunze Mr Colours paints and MRP matt varnish to finish, so let me know what you think on the weathering, did i get it to work better?

  3. 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

  5. OK making a space for a long term build (Yes another one) but with a difference a sort of WHIF or WTF if you prefer. I,ll be using the Trumpeter 1/350 PETER STRASSER Aircraft carrier kit but going to bling it up with the INFINI detail upset for the Graf Zeppelin hence the title now Zeppelin was launched and used as target practice and evaluation by the Russians after the end of WW2 So this will just be my imagination going wild for some reason while doing a bit of research on this I found a build by Hyun Soo Kim based on the world of warships game and camouflage scheme bit like the d
  6. Hello friends! Just looked at the @Alan P‘s resurrected thread and decided to post some pictures of my Vigilante. I bought this kit some time ago for my friend and feel no rush to build it - just putting some bits together from time to time... The box is large and sturdy: And all the details are well-packed there: The Runner A contains the two fuselage halves (very big, I must say): The wings and protected intakes are on a Runner B: The Runner C with control surfaces: And D with a pylo
  7. 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:
  8. Here is my entry to the group build. Fingers crossed for a good result as this is a quite complicated kit for my skill level. I am planning to finish the model in Syrian Air Force markings but it will probably just the markings as I don't really care about the accuracy much and have no idea if Syria used this Mig-23 variant or not.
  9. T-28 was the main soviet medium tank of the pre-WWII era. It has no bright victories to speak of, but gained some success during the Soviet-Finland war. It is mainly known for been the only production 3-turret tank with more than 500 units built. Very nice Trumpeter kit. I used NO putty at all. Painted with Vallejo acrylics (4BO main color). The only addition was the photoetched gunsight for the anti-aircraft machine-gun on the main turret. And I made lens for the headlights from scratch. Next Trumpeter T-28 kit (this time with conical main turret) waits to be assembled.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. I have been making reverse progress, taking apart and fixing the mess that I made at the start of the year. My first post about this kit around January or February went very wrong quickly. I mixed up the decals for the cockpit and then I gave up for a while. Then, back in February, I built the rear fuselage of the aircraft, including wings, which was a terrible idea, I didn't build it right or I don't know but it was full of gaps, especially in the gear bay. First thing I did was take the decal off the rear part of the cockpit and replace it with random bits and pieces from unused
  13. This is my recently finished 1/48 Trumpeter Hawker Sea Hawk. The model went together quite well, although the wings took a bit of work to attach. It would have been nice to have a better way of showing the wings folded. Built OOB except for a bit of work on the seat and I painted the invasion stripes in preference to using the decals. Tamiya acrylics were used. Primer was XF-2 with a touch of XF-1. The main colours were XF-54 Dark Sea Grey and XF-21 Sky. Weathering was with grey and grime washes and Abteilung 502 smoke and cream brown oils. The aircraft represents a Seahawk

  15. 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
  16. Hello to all, Another of my last year builds: this is my 1/32nd scale Mig-21 LanceR C. I used Trumpeter's Mig-21MF kit and Icaerodesign conversion kit which is very nice and add the much necessary bits to complete conversion for upgraded variant used by Romanian AF. Painting was done with Hataka paints, orange line - RoAF paint set. This subject is well documented, so reference for it were in abundance. The kit itself is nice enough to keep you going, details are there but it's starting to show its age (i.e. wheels, landing gear bays and so on). Nevertheless it was an enjoyable build.
  17. It was my birthday a few months ago and I decided to treat myself With this BIG BOI https://i.pinimg.com/originals/b0/0d/6b/b00d6b8dd53ee1a7390ae6ab64e35ed4.jpg I was pleasantly surprised to see how neat the box was https://i.pinimg.com/originals/e7/26/af/e726afa47a6eb758b7a2b104bf41a202.jpg Everything was neatly packaged and the larger parts were in the small box which has it's own boxart which was a nice surprise. I started the tail end first, and man, this thing is massive! https://i.pinimg.com/originals/d9/b6/38/d9b638f3e5c457b17950c0f7d2e5283e.jpg H
  18. Hi everyone This is the Trumpeter Tiger (late) kit with zimmerit. It's my first 1/35 German AFV and I've tried to incorporate a few new weathering and detailing techniques that I have learnt this year. It was painted with lifecolour acrylics and weathered with oils and pigments. I replaced the kit tracks with Dragon DS tracks, which were kindly donated to me by a friend. The plastic tracks that come in the Trumpeter kit have solid guide horns, which are not accurate for a late Tiger. The spare tracks are from the Modelkasten spare tracks set. I have kep
  19. Not in the new Trumpeter's catalogue but in the IPMS Philippines homepage. Trumpeter is to release in 2016 2020 a 1/48th Chengdu J-20 kit - ref 05811 To put alongside the Hobby Boss 1/48th YF-23 kit, I suppose? http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234934034-148-northrop-yf-23-black-widow-by-hobby-boss-released Source: http://ipmsphilippines.com/test-shots/testshot-trumpeter-148th-chinese-stealth-jet-j-20/ V.P.

  22. I have also started another carrier build as I’ve decided to finish the RN Destroyers, Cruiser and Minelayer alongside the the two DKM Z classes during the wet season as I would more home bound during the wet season and be able to devote more attention to them. Hopefully once they are done a start on some DKM battle wagons as well. This HMS Ark Royal by Trumpeter in 1/700. I always said I would never go to back to Trumpeter after my DKM Admiral Hipper build, but now back have a crack at this one. I won’t be doing to much to this build in the way of PE, but just a enough to make i
  23. In a desperate attempt to get my build schedule back on track, I have just bought a kit specifically for this GB: I can't remember the last time I bought a kit to build immediately, and I mean immediately. It's not going into the stash, not even for a day. I'll start it later this afternoon.
  24. Having built small 1/72 aircraft & 1/72 armour in previous Blitzbuilds, thought I would test myself this time with a larger kit. So a rummage through the stash has produced the following. Will be built OOB with the exception of a replacement resin seat. Just to make it more interesting I will be folding the wings. The plan is do do the 'Other Option' starting on the Saturday. Aim is to get the sky on by end of Saturday to give overnight drying time before masking for the EDSG. The plan is complicated by the fact there is the Tour de France starting, the Belgi
  25. To paraphrase a certain UK TV Quiz Show, "I have started so I might as well finish". Having posted the intro for my F-100F Wild Weasel, here is the follow-up build. I am hoping to use some elderly but as yet unopened tins of Xtracolour enamel on 3 kits simultaneously as it might make more sense, but we will see. After the events described in the intro to my F-100F build, it soon became apparent that although the concept worked, the Hun was too slow to work effectively with the supporting F-105D Thuds. It was therefore decided to convert the F-105F 2 seater as a replacement. Like th
