  1. I would like to enter this GB with this Bf 109, that flew over the Agäis December 1943. Cheers Jes
  2. Here's a quick build, bit of stash busting and refresher while I wait for decals for something quite a bit bigger. AZ Models 1/72 Bf 109G-14 Wr.Nu.462919 "Weisse 7". I find the blotted out insignia and no frills scheme (no colourful ID or unit markings at all) to be quite menacing in its monotone. Erla mottling is quite hard to execute in this scale though, at least my wife likes it and calls it my "leopard print plane". Anyway, for a "quick and dirty" project I'm fairly pleased with the outcome, any tips are welcome I would also like some colour feedback please. For some time my
  3. Possibly not the most approrpiate build to post on VE day but it's Bank holiday and I have time to take pictures, so here it is: my recently completed Bf 109G-6 of the Royal Hungarian Air Force "Red Puma" squadron. Couldn't resist the colourful tail on this one! The kit is 1/72 AZ Models "Danubian users" boxing but I adapted the camouflage and ID markings as I was suspicious of the box art instructions showing a non-standard scheme I could not verify. So here it is in standard German (WNF) pattern. I had some slight mishaps with sections of the vinyl mask lifting where the canopy is curved so
  4. Now this is a bit different. I picked this up several years ago on a visit to Hannants at Colindale as I noticed one of the liveries provided was for a Royal Navy glider. I recalled that I had it a few days ago and thought if I could dig it out of the stash it would be a quick build and get done now I'm almost finished my other contributions. It's only got 11 parts and a canopy, pretty much one colour, no etch, no resin and only 4 transfers to go on. So it was found in a pile on the top shelf and out it came. A simple simple set of instructions on one pag
  5. Hello all, After my bit of silliness with the Mustang, I'm back to a serious build again. I was recently asked if I would build a replica of the two seat Spitfire T.9 named Elizabeth, which can often be seen in the summer months fulfilling peoples' bucket list ambitions by getting them in the air in a Spit, flying from Headcorn or Sywell. Here she is, photographed by the talented Ian Amis: Ultimately this model will end up in the hands of Keith Perkins, the owner of Elizabeth, so I'd better make a good job of it! I used the AZ Models T.8/9 kit i
  6. Here is my third contributio, AZ Model's version of the first FAA model of the Martlet/Wildcat. These were aircraft redirected from Belgian and French orders for, at that time, the new Wildcat. They differ in they were engined with a Wright Cyclone engine and on arrival in the UK had to have their equipment changed to British equipment. Three options offered, including an erroneous RAF version, I'm also not sure that this livery is correct and the serial is definitely wrong. I'll look in the transfers stash and see if I have something more accurate.
  7. I have wanted to build an FAA aircraft with folded wings for a while, originally I fancied a Barracuda but I came across the AZ Models Fairey Fulmar which a bit of research and some very helpful info from Britmodeller members told me was an ex Revell mould with some updates. Hannants do the Airwaves folding wing etch for the Revell Fulmar and I decided to take the plunge. The box art is a little underwhelming not a patch on the original Revell box art and I dont think a Fulmar ever flew in a emerald green camo job. IMG_20200302_114736924 by Stuart, on Flickr I was
  8. I'm going to step cautiously into this one with what I hope will be a simple build (said that before!), just have hardly got any modelling done so far this year. I have a few of the ' -'hawk' series but fancy doing this one. Haven't fully decided which scheme, erring towards the Green/ Dark Earth one, but I'll decide as I go. The obligatory box and sprue shot's, hopefully should be getting going very soon, not child-minding Grandkid's this week!
  9. Ah entry of mine over in the P-40 (and relatives!) STGB. Built OOB, not too bad to put together, very nicely detailed, especially the panel lines. Just usual lack of clear placement instructions and tricky fit, re; undercarriage and clear parts. Vallejo ModelAir used throughout, I think it looks quite good in Dark Green/Dark Earth over Medium Sea Grey (?colour call out on the instructions, couldn't confirm this but went for it). 'Klear' gloss coat with Vallejo matt finish. Didn't attempt to scratch build the ring and bead gunsight, not with my shakey hands! looks the part I recko
  10. I have finally finished the pair of Pfalzen. The first, an ICM E.IV was built a few years ago and got damaged during my relocation. I decided that the restoration would be more interesting if I took the AZ Models E.I out of the stash and built that alongside it, so that's what I did. They are both 1:72 scale, and both heavily modified from the basic kit. The E.I has scratchbuilt wings and tail surfaces, while the E.IV's are heavily modified kit parts, and both have scratchbuilt undercarriage. Part PE was used for the E.IV guns and the E.I has a MiniWorld gun. Here's the build log for anyo
  11. Due to summer 'distractions' this is not going to be a quick thread, but I'll try to keep you amused with occasional updates. The starting point is an Airfix 1/72 Chipmunk T.10 that I built way back in 1969, shortly after the kit was released; WK574, Cambridge UAS, c 1952 by Philip Pain, on Flickr I have never been happy with the look or accuracy of this kit, but at the time my skill only ran to doing something to correct the canopy, substituting the 'canadian option' windscreen which doesn't have an external frame at the front (it is internal on the real aircraft). WK574, Cambridge UAS
  12. Hi all, Not very often I get to post two new builds in a week, but here goes...at the Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar, Spitfire MJ772 has recently been restored and repainted in new livery, prior to its return to flight. I was recently asked to build a model of this particular airframe for Greg Davis, the chap who runs The Two Seat Spitfire Page on FaceBook, who has a growing collection of 1/72 Spitfire T9s. As per usual, the AZ Models kit was used in the absence of any other available kit, and just a few minor tweaks were made. The rear canopy bow is moulded way too thic
  13. This is my 1/72 AZ Model's Douglas X-3 Stiletto. This is another kit that is not for the faint of heart or the easily discouraged and for more details on my trials and tribulations you can see my WIP entry at To summarize nothing that is supposed to go into the fuselage interior will fit and nothing on the right side of the fuselage lines up with the corresponding thing on left side. Including the canopy which is one piece. But it still built fairly quickly and I am happy with the outcome. So on to the pictures I am not sure why the canop
  14. I don't usually do WIPs, but since this is a new kit and it has received some negative reviews: http://www.kitreviewsonline.de/douglas-x-3-stiletto-im-massstab-172-von-az-model-az-7597/#more-41416 I thought I would do one so that those are interested can see my trials and tribulations. First the sprues of which there are 2: Just ignore the Sidewinders, they are for a what-if boxing. There isn't a lot of flash but there is some and it is in awkward locations, like the slot for the wings Next the transparency, which is...transparent: Decals, whic
  15. Hi folks, Those of you who followed my build thread on this will know that it was built from the AZ Models 1/72 kit of the two seat Spitfire, and it was painted up and had custom decals and masks made to replicate NH341, otherwise known as Elizabeth. It will shortly be in the hands of the owner of the real thing, but I thought I'd take advantage of a sunny half hour this morning to photograph it before it goes...
  16. Hello everyone. This is Messerschmitt Bf 109G-12 Yugoslav version, 15/9615, 83 Fighter Regiment, Yugoslav Air Force, Cerklje airfield, Slovenia, Yugoslavia, 1948-49. 1:72 AZ Model kit with Kora resin conversion set. Following the Second World War, Yugoslavia received some standard two-seater Bf 109G-12s from Bulgaria. Needing more, they converted a couple of one-seaters. This conversion visually differs from the original G-12 in the rear cockpit section where an Erla Haube canopy was used instead of the special G-12 rear canopy. As soon as I found out about this variant I went l
  17. I have just finished this badge of 109's, which is no. 211-215. It is the Az model of the F and G. Build out of the box, with aftermarked decals. Cheers Jes
  18. 3 builds into my return to plastic manipulation its time to build a Spitfire or two! The 1st Spitfire will be a deviation from my primary theme of aircraft flown from US bases in Essex during WW2 in 1/72nd scale, but still has an Essex theme, a 131 Squadron MkVII Spitfire flown by Ft Lt C. 'Pete' Bearman. He was a close friend and colleague to my Grandfather at Essex Police before he volunteered to join the RAF . The 2nd Spitfire will be an Eagle Squadron MkVb Spitfire based at North Weald. I will be making the decals for this aircraft Onto the kits - No.1

  20. Hi all. I have been away for some time due to some major building work I have been having done and doing myself . This is still ongoing, but now I have modelling time too. I have been busy on this little beauty which is a limited run kit. I have also used the rather nice Marabu photo etch set which is quite comprehensive. The fit is not to bad at all although lots of testing is required along with some fettling. The kits comes with various resin items such as seats although I have used the PE ones, Engines wheels etc. I am doing an overall aluminium painted Royal N
  21. Here's a Messerschmitt Bf109 you don't see that often, the G-1. The G-1 and G-2 were the first of the G series (obviously) and the G-1 had cockpit pressurisation but the G-2 did not. AZ Models make a reasonably decent series of 109 kits, many of which you can't get from more mainstream manufacturers, so far 109 fans, these kits are brilliant. This one is from JG54 'Grunherz' and I believe it's one that Walther Nowotny flew. thanks Mike
  22. Just thought it might be timely to start a reference thread dealing with the Saunders Roe SR.53. Homebee has already started a thread advising us of the soon to be released AZ 1/72 kit here - I've attached a link to 17 relevant photographs c/o the Airliner.net website - http://www.airliners.net/search?aircraft=43331&display=detail I was just hoping that other BM members could contribute with any additional information / magazine articles to help us all make this most of this exciting new release. As far as I can see, there's not much around so any additional informat
  23. Hello, Having been a long time lurker I thought I would take the plunge and post some of my efforts. They are nowhere near as good as some of the masterpieces that appear on here but I enjoy building them and each one is a little bit better than the last (or a I buy something which means I can do something that I couldn't previously!) First up is the AZ Models Bf109-G2, finished as Hans-Joachim Marseille's 'Yellow 14'. OOB apart from the aerial wire which is EZ-line. Paints were Vallejo Model Air applied with a brush over a white primer. Photography at my desk after dark with
  24. Just finished this one fra AZ, build out of box, ok kit had some resin parts that did not fit well, brush painted witm Modelmaster paint, clear/mat lacquer with airbrush, decals from kit. Photo dok. from internet. Cheers Jes
  25. Hi all! As a break from cramming detail into Matchbox biplanes, I embarked on one of my Telford buys, the AZ Chipmunk - on the suggestion that I needed a bit of a rest and a mojo restorer! It's quite a nice kit, with very delicate surface detail and a well-detailed interior. It's rather lacking in some of the finer details however- I added tie-down rings, actuator jacks for the flaps, pitot probe, catches for the sliding portion of the canopy, two blade aerials, a scoop on the cowling, the little strakes on the wing leading edges, brake lines, etc, plus drilling out the exhaust and all
