  1. Hi guys. I want to sho you some pics of my recent project, the EE Canberra T.Mk.11 from AMP. The kit is based on the S&M Models Canberra, AMP added some etched parts and two different noses for this version. I will build one of the two possible swedish aircrafts. Like most aircraft builds it starts with the cockpit. It´s niceley detailed and the seat from the box are okay too. The clear part fitts not very well, I think it´s my fault, dry fitting was not so bad. First nose test, I think i will build 8-02 with the round one and the dayglow markings at its fin. Cheers Daniel

  6. Westland Dragonfly HC.2 1/48 AMP via Mikromir The Westland Dragon Fly was a UK Built licence built version of the Sikorsky S-51. In the UK these were powered by an Alvis Leonides radial engine developing 500hp. While the Dragonfly was mainly used by the Royal Navy a few were by the RAF in the Casualty Evacuation role. These were designated HC.2 (2 built) and HC.4 (12 built); the earlier type with wooden rotors, and the later with metal ones. It is good to see companies bringing us kits of early helicopters as the are lacking. The kit from AMP (A Mikromir company) arrives on 6 sprues of plastic, four clear spures, a sheet of PE, a set of masks and resin parts for the rotor head. The plastic is more of the short run type but much better than seen before, there is little flash and the detail is better. The clear parts look a little cloudy in the pictures but its deceiving, a little polish up and they will be good. The small white resin parts seem to be made of a more durable material, the type I have seen Eduard use for tail wheels before. Construction starts in the cabin. The seats are made (3 off) and added to the cabin floor. PE belts are provided for the pilots seat. The read cabin bulkhead is then added. The instrument panel and pilots controls are also added. Next up the extensive glazing for the cabin is made up. The front bubble is actually two halves which attach to a central part, The sides are then added. The complete part is then supposed to slide onto the competed fuselage, though I suspect many modellers might tray a different approach. Next up the base for the rotor head is built up. The cabin floor and base rotor head can then be put into the fuselage and it closed up. The glazing is then slid on. The main landing gear is added at the sides along with the entry step rail. The tail rotor is then added. In picture of WF311 it can be seen there is a tail plane with an oval end plate on the opposite side from the tail rotor, however this is missing in the kit. It will not be that hard to make. Next up the full rotor head can be built up. This is quite complex so care will be needed. The blades can then be added. Last up for the main airframe is completion of the nose wheel. Lastly the side paniers to carry the casualties are made up and added. Decals A small decal sheet provides marking for one RAF Machine WF311. The instructions show this as being at RAF Yeovilton 1950. We know this is RNAS Yeovilton, and as the airframe was delivered in 1950 I would suspect this was delivered there, or could be at Westalnds site? The aircraft was used by 194 Sqn RAF (Far East Casevac Flight) and was written off on 16/3/53 when the engine failed. These airframes were fitted with external panniers for carrying the casualties. Conclusion This is something which is overdue, the kit is welcome addition to early Helicopters from AMP. Highly Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  7. Hiller YH-32 Hornet (48005) 1/48 AMP via Mikromir Hiller Aircraft was one of the early pioneers of rotary winged or Helicopter aviation in the US. The company was formed in 1942 to develop the Hiller XH-44 for the US Army. The company would be renamed Hiller Helicopters in 1948. The YH-32 was an attempt to produce an ultra light helicopter and as such was to do away with a conventional engine. Hiller's solution was to mount two ramjet engines on the tip of the rotor blades. Another benefit from this design was that there was no need for a tail rotor and its associated equipment thus saving weight. However in practice the design had a few flaws. The rotor have to be subsonic and ramjets do not work well at these speeds. This resulted in poor performance, high fuel usage, and a poor range. The ram jets were also very noisy, and importantly for military operations were very visible at night. Versions were produced for the US Army and Navy but did not progress past the prototype stage. It is good to see companies bringing us kits outside of the main stream and the YH-32 certainly qualifies for this. Despite being 1.48 the kit is diminutive as was the real thing. The kit arrives on two sprues of plastic, a clear spure, with a sheet of PE and a set of masks. Construction starts f with the cabin. The main base is made up from mainly plastic parts, There are a couple of PE parts including the pedals and the seat frame. The seats follow with PE belts. The base is then added to the skids after they are made up. The rear body and tail assembly is then made up and fitted to the base. The large clear bubble is added along with a wire part which the modeller has to make, there as a template for this on the instructions. Finally the rotor assembly with the tip mounted ramjets is made up ad added on top. Decals A small decal sheet provides marking for 2 US Army & ! US Navy machines. Conclusion This is something which we never thought would be produced in kit form, it is one of those oddities from early Helicopter innovations that never took off (if you can excuse the pun), the kit is welcome addition to early Helicopters from AMP. Highly Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
