  1. Hi all, First of all, many thanks to @Col. for letting me join in, and I hope this build will be a treat for all of us! Meet the Icelandic Fine Art resin Bucc in 1/32. Fuselage is cast from resin/aluminium matrix while the rest of the kit is polyurethane resin. It's a very limited run kit (I believe @Icelandic Fine Art only released 35 complete kits as it's basically one solitary genius [also called Alan!] who's toiled on this for 20 years!) so I'm very glad to have got one and this might be among the first ones built if I can maintain my concentration for the whole th
  2. Hi folks this was going to be the base for one of my aircrew. However I cannot find anything except the torso. Can you identify which kit it’s come from?. Once I find out I’ll put a wanted thread out. 685B86E8-7EA0-405B-AC64-675066CC32FA
  3. Hi folks This is Hasegawa's P40E done as a Kittyhawk 1a. Nice kit but spoiled by the various fuselage drop-in sections designed to allow them to get as many variants as possible from the one mould - none of the joins are on panel lines so if you don't like filling, sanding and scribing keep away from it. For anyone wondering about the yellow-ringed roundels under the wings, a Google search of '112 squadron RAF' will bring up a picture of FR440 showing just this. Shark mouth and serials all hand painted.

  5. As seen at the International Air Tattoo, Greenham Common 1986. Build thread HERE for those interested in the Flightpath detailing set. Revell 1/32 kit with Flightpath detail set, Paragon ejection seats, AMS resin nose, Hobbydecal probes and a variety of deliberately obtuse decal sets! I was really disappointed with the decals, really put me off finishing the model. You can't really make it out from the photos, but most of the stencils and insignia went on rubbish. A real labour of love like most Revell big-scale aircraft, phinally phinished with phl
  6. Hello everyone, I hope you all are keeping safe. I've just completed the 1/32 Tamiya F16CJ and thought I'd share a few pictures of it, i swapped the static dischargers for the superb Master set (AM-32-084) as the kit parts looked a bit too chunky, MasterCasters Soft FOD inserts, other than that...its out of the kit box. I'll try and get a few outdoor pictures added soon as the weather allows All c
  7. Hi All, Here's another completed build from the lockdown - the Revell 1/32 F/A-18E Super Hornet built (almost) out of the box for the In The Navy Groupbuild. Only the seat and GBU-38 bombs were aftermarket items, I added the HARMs from the Academy kit spares. Everything else, including the decals, came from Revell's monster kit. The word on the street about this kit was overwhelmingly negative apart from a very nice in-prog build by @infofrog and a very fair RFI summary by @Habu12. Most of the bad news was coming from another site (Big'N'Tall A
  8. 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.
  9. I have been making threatening noises about this build for some time now - and now it's time for me to make a start. I have been gathering materials and resources over the last few months - still a few critical items to lay my hands on but I think I have enough to make a start. A bit of history: A few years back I was lucky enough to be given the job of redesigning an original Pullman carriage. The owner wanted it to run on the tracks again and after a spate of rail crashes in the UK, rail regulations were tightened considerably. This carriage was originally a wooden bodied carriage
  10. Hallo It was finished in 2012. I bought the kit in Tokyo some months before I started it to build.. The kit is not so easy, the weapon installation at the engine are tricky! Every ZM kit is very differnt to other labels in the modelling field. The gear is accurate and unusual for installation. The build is not satisfying me- Maybe you like it. Happy modelling
  11. Hi guys, I will be building a Heinkel He-111 P from Revell in 1/32 scale. I have some goodies for it. I will be using a mask set from Montex for a plane from 9/KG55. I will put up some pictures in the next few weeks. As I will be building this also for the He-111 STGB that starts in a few weeks and I will be host. Cheers,
  12. So with a week to go I thought I'd set out my placeholder... I'll be building (and hopefully finishing this time) the Eduard Bf109E-3 in 1/32 using the markings for Black 11+- of 5/JG3 based at Brombos in early August 1940 which are part of the Kagero Battle of Britain Part 2 set and which were very kindly sent to me by @Silver Fox and for which I would like to record my gratitude: thank you Andy Trying to dig out the history of this aircraft and the pilot has produced very little apart from a few pictures on Asisbiz, so any further information about either would be g
  13. Sopwith Pup "Gnome" Wingnut Wings 1/32 This is WnW's Gnome engined version of the Sopwith Pup, and it's the first kit of theirs that I've built and way out of my comfort zone, being an AFV and Sci-Fi modeller generally. The kit went together without any real issues, although handling it become more difficult as the build went on and a few repairs were needed along the way. The single biggest job was the masking for the stripes, although I simplified it as much as possible by breaking the painting down into stages, rather than trying to mask and spray the whole th
  14. Hi guys, I will be building a Heinkel He-111 P from Revell in 1/32 scale. I have some goodies for it. I will be using a mask set from Montex for a plane from 9/KG55. Here are some pictures The boxart and a box full of plastic. and some of the extra's I want to use As you can see is there the bomb rack from the H version. As I am making a later P version I need this. Also the exhaust are different and I use some from a H version. I have also got a set from Montex for the maskes including the masks for the 9/KG55.
  15. We've lowered the price of Meng's (ex WNW)1/32 Fokker DR.1 triplane! There's a couple left at £54 each! https://mjwmodels.co.uk/mmqs-002-132-fokker-dri-triplane-red-baron-ex-wnw-kit-7261-p.asp Don't forget we've still got a ton of 1/72 and 1/48 offers on our homepage! https://mjwmodels.co.uk/ thanks Mike
  16. The armoured cuirassiers were the 'shock troops' of their day, ready to smash through any weaknesses in the enemy line and win the victory. None were more famous than the French, with the image of thousands of them pouring over the field of Waterloo as one of the most instantly recognisable in military history. 6e Régiment de Cuirassiers 285 men The regiment nominally consisted of four squadrons each of two companies, each company having 100 men. Blue short-tailed coatee. Facings of orange collar, blue cuffs, orange cuff flaps, lapels and turnbacks for 6th regiment. Pewter buttons, silve
  17. MPM SH32049 boxart: http://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=97&t=71717&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a translation: Main parts from short run and small details from metal mould.
  18. I'm toying with the idea of converting the Revell/Matchbox Tiger Moth to a Fox Moth. Apart from the new fuselage. centre wing section and tweaked u/c legs, my research indicates that not much else needs changing. Does anyone have any other views to the contrary? Anyone have any scale plans?
  19. Hi everyone I know its another Tamiya Spitfire but after seeing @shortCummins rather splendid build I thought I'd show mine as I'm pretty close to where John is with his build. I should say that I started this back in 2018 and for some reason or another I lost interest and put it to one side but now I'm building for my best mate who has been a real rock to me over the past few months and who has a thing for Spitfires. So my plan is to build the Spit and incorporate it into a diorama, I have an Austin Tilly and Willy's Jeep going Spare plus a 1/32 Pilot and ground crew any he
  20. Well, it's been a rollercoaster for the last 15 months or so. I never said I was quick... Presented for your delectation is HKM's Great Big Lancaster. Build log is here. I decided to do an approximation of R5868 as she is now in Hendon, so that means the groovy two-tone squadron codes, paddle blade propellers (handily, they come as an option with the kit) and some extra radar kit over and above what the version of R5868 the box builds is equipped with. Again, the parts are in the box; I augmented them by removing the moulded antennae and replaced them with wire. Thi
  21. Hi Everybody, this is my Arado 196B bought for me as a gift, not the subject matter I would have chosen and certainly not the normal scale I build. But I have to say it was a thoroughly enjoyable build and went together like a dream. The only difficulty I had was with the glazing, made a complete mess of the sliding canopy, that was purely down to my own inexperience and lack of skill, I now know how I would have done it differently. Built straight out of the box the only addition being some E-Z line for the rigging and painted entirely with Tamiya acrylics. As I said not my normal p
  22. Hi folks ICM's kit completed as the Shuttleworth Collection's Gladiator 'K7985' using the Aerocraft decals (unfortunately slightly out of register). Regards J.A.
  23. I recently saw a good friend who is also an excellent modeler. Whenever I see him he always gifts me old models and things. Amongst the box of stuff he gave me was a partially started kit. He has a habit of using the rudder to open and close things such as bomb bay doors or canopies. This particular kit he told me, he ended up giving up on because of the way the canopy pivots open. So I've no hope in getting it to work. Below is a picture of what he'd already done to the seat I then noticed the air brakes have been m
  24. Hi fellows, Let me show my Spitfire Mk. IXc. I've included some pics during built. I found some issues, but were due to my inexperience!! The kit is the well known Tamiya 1/32, no aftermarket, and all the paints were also Tamiya (only some oils were used for weathering). I hope you enjoy it, and wait for your comments. Thanks!
