  1. For my next build I have gone modern day and will build the Great Wall Hobby 1/48 MiG-29 Fulcrum C 9-13. I don't think this kit needs too much introduction as it has been widely reviewed and many great builds have been completed. Hopefully I can do it some justice! I intend to build a modern Fulcrum based on the Linden Hill Decal sheet 'Pavlov's MiG's', these aircraft are depicted as they appeared in 2015 and sport typical MiG-29 grey/green camouflage and markings for contemporary MiG 29's. I addition these aircraft sport quite interesting individual markings after they were blessed on there
  2. Hi, I am new to the scale modeling. Currently I am working on three different projects (2 1/72 Eduard RAF Spitfires and a 1/48 Kinetic HAF F 16). I am pretty familiar with modern jets (camo and variants), but I have almost no idea on WWII airplanes. So, as the theme says, I would like to ask what finish did the RAF Spitfires have MATT or Gloss? I am building two Mk XVIs one with PRU scheme and one on standard day fighter scheme. As you can see I am trying to paint the airplanes with different wear grades. The day fighter was in service for more time.
  3. Hey. Thought I'd share some pics of my current project, the Bandai 1/72 BTL-A4 Y-Wing Starfighter This is my first kit and build in close to four years, and the first I've ever tried to weather up/varnish etc, so any feedback would be welcome Not yet complete, of course. The cockpit section isn't fully seated because it'll be easier to weather the back panel with it off, heh.
  4. OK guys, I have hit a point where I am tired of waiting to get all the new tools and supplies, I want to stop being just an observer and start being a builder! (again) I have not built a kit since the late 80's, things have changed and I have already learned so much, thanks to many of my fellow modelers here on BM. I had planned to build a pair of ( )H-6J's, but do to a goof on my part, I needed to start from scratch. My replacement kits are on the way, but will take a least a month to get here. So I decided to build this Tamiya #6424 1:48 F-15A. As you can see from the
  5. Hi. I am starting a Tamiya 1/48 Fairey Swordfish Mk. II, and I will make a series of videos of the full build. The first video is about the cockpit. Here is some pictures of the cockpit as of now: You are all welcome to participate and help me out. Thanks.
  6. Hi everyone this is my first post on here (I accidentally posted this on the wrong discussion earlier but haven't found a way to remove the post) and I thought I'd share my first build in years. Revells 1/48 Tornado Gr4. It's thankfully gone together with no issues, I was assuming it was going to be a headache but so far so good! Also if anyone has any tips on highlighting panel lines or weathering in general I'm all ears as I'm useless at it. Also can anyone recommend a good clear matt? Ive tried Humbrol and Mr Colour and they even after being stirred thoroughly were coming out gloss. Any

  9. great downloadable instruction book on high level gundum building and modification. its a pay what you can thing, from $1 to $25 , i paid 5 bucks personally felt thats about right seeing how its only digital. heres the link to website. https://www.joshuadarrah.com/zeta-plus-wip-book
  10. Hey guys, finally got my MiG together. The Zvezda tooling is actually turning out to be quite nice, although looking a bit rough around the edges. The kit is quite nicely detailed. The instructions and decals are awful, they don't include all the parts and the decal sheet includes no stencils and are about as thick as the box it came in. The only problem with the plastic that I have encountered is that there are no discernible roots for the wings or stabilisers so setting them correctly was tricky. Other than that only a minute amount of filler at the base of the tail and wing roots and the k
  11. Hiya guys! Just posting to ask for some C&C on this WiP (still needs a lot of detailing and some covering of the white paint still showing through) paint scheme... this is the first time I've painted 28mm Brits. I think I've got the colours just about right but I'm scared the mini is too dark... I thought I might put a dry brush/highlight of some desert yellow over the top just to make the details pop? I've two pictures under a lamp and one picture in natural sunlight (I figure the latter is better for gauging how it'll look on the tabletop). With WW2 miniatures I'v
  12. How dull it is to pause, to make an end, To rust unburnish'd, not to shine in use! -- Alfred, Lord Tennyson, "Ulysses" 'They might say, it seems to me, "you are rich; we are poor...You have had the past; let us have the future." Above all, I fear they would say, "you are weak and we are strong."' -- Winston Churchill, 16 November 1934 Mr Edward Heath (MP for Bexley): Can the Secretary of State be certain when confrontation over Indonesia will end or when the certainty of the independence of Malaysia can be assured? Mr Dennis Healey (MP for Leeds East): No, I cannot be certain
  13. Hello all, This is my first WIP thread but is my second 1/48 model to hit my workbench. I have been really looking forward to getting into this bad boy. I will be using the Eduard "Danger Zone" Hobby Boss F-14 reboxing. The kit is absolutely beautiful and even with some dry fitting everything just clicks together and even has a lack of release pin markers that plagued their F/a-18d. For this built I will be pulling out all the stops as well as all the ports that the kit comes with...and some! Still undecided as to weather I will fix the wings extended with all the flaps and slates showing
  14. So I thought I would pick up something nice and simple to keep me going until my SU-33 & MiG 29 arrive from China. Browsing around the many excellent stalls at Bolton model show I decided upon this gem (£16): I have a 1/32 Eduard Bf109 E-4 on the bench which kind of swayed me to this kit, as I have found the Emil a nice model to build, apart from the shocking fit of the lower wing to the fuselage. ( I have had to strip the paint off the Emil as I found that Humbrol clear over Gunze Sangyo Aqueous is a non starter , I will probably paint both together to save on paint / time) Not know
  15. Hello, i started my new project. After my B-17 I am back to my love - 1/350 ships Here are some photos of box content: And some work from past few days: That is all for now
  16. Boulton Paul Defiant Mk.I. No. 264 Squadron, Martlesham, Suffolk, England, July 1940. This is the new 1/72nd scale Defiant from Airfix. I will use an Eduard Zoom set for the interior detail, Set No SS525. For the camouflage colour paint, I have Hannants Xtracrylix. The markings will be the standard kit decals. For weathering and panel lines I intend to use gouache. Thank you for looking, Joe.
  17. Gentlemen. If you'll allow I'd like to share my current WIP with you. I've decided to start 2015 with a build that's a bit more ambitious than I'm used to. I was getting to the point where I felt like I needed to try a ZM kit. I thought for sure it was going to be the Horten, but a lot of WIPs of those have popped up around the web. On top of that, I had wanted to do the Revell Uhu last year, but opted for something else. Anyway, I wound up with this kit after the holidays, so here I am. This is a massive undertaking, and it would be easy for my obsessiveness and ADD to make things messy, so
  18. Good afternoon everyone! First of all something needs clearing up, the vulcan build will not be proceding in the immediate future due to my realisation that I had made the whole thing wrong, I won't go into detail but I will consider that practice for scratchbuilding :| Anyway, let us begin on this build! I came across this large kit at the Cosford model show, only a few days ago, and as it happens I had purchased a book on the Tupolev Tu-22 "Blinder" as I am very interested in "the other side's" technology and aircraft. While the Tu22 may not have been the most prolific aircraft in the Sovi
  19. Du mußt herrschen und gewinnen Oder dienen und verlieren, Leiden oder triumphieren, Amboß oder Hammer sein. [you must rule and win or serve and lose, suffer or triumph, be the anvil or the hammer.] -- Goethe, "Geh! Gehorche meinen Winken" "...Another example is the hammer and the anvil, now always used with the implication that the anvil gets the worst of it. In real life it is always the anvil that breaks the hammer, never the other way about[.]" -- George Orwell, "Politics and the English Language" Having delayed a planned Blenheim build with an errant foot, I have decided to take upon
  20. 't becomes still more difficult to reconcile Japanese action with prudence or even with sanity. What kind of a people do they think we are? Is it possible that they do not realize that we shall never cease to persevere against them until they have been taught a lesson which they and the world will never forget?' -- Winston Churchill, 26 December 1941 Hello again, I'm pushing my luck and trying your collective patience now, I know. I'm going to be building Liberator B.VI KH283/B of 159 Squadron based at RAF Digri, Bengal, in the Southeast Asia Command. KH283 was often flown by B Flight comman
  21. Now is the winter of our discontent Made glorious summer by this sun of York; And all the clouds that lour'd upon our house In the deep bosom of the ocean buried. Now are our brows bound with victorious wreaths; Our bruised arms hung up for monuments; Our stern alarums changed to merry meetings, Our dreadful marches to delightful measures. Thread title not a reference to the cuddliest-looking Prime Minister of the last fifty years: Awww, look at him! Who wouldn't wait at the church for him? In any event, I've made all the usual New Year's Resolutions: be a better, more loving husband; tidy
  22. What am I getting up to? Okay, I realize you don't care, but a strange impulse compels to me want to write every now and then (not only am I a failed graduate student, I'm also a failed writer*), and also I have a bizarre urge to complete as many builds as possible each year. I reckon my fear of failure** will impel me to keep on building and babbling. But possibly not! I'm inconsistent and unreliable, that's part of my charm. Blah blah blah. I'm wrapping up work on the AZ Spitfire IX Joypack; I decided to do all three at once, because otherwise I would have only built three Spitfires this ye
  23. Hi All, Just thought I would create a thread for my first ever model in progress. It's a 1989 MPC Darth Vader TIE Fighter (the one that needs loads of sanding and filling ) Apologies for the slightly poor quality pictures, they were taken on my phone. Regardless, I hope you all enjoy the updates. Steps completed over the last few days. Primed Yesterday I primed all the main parts of the fuselage Lighting test I also tested my first ever LED lighting circuit. Obviously, the fuselage is not stuck together here I just wanted to get a
