  1. Part 1: Part 2 Part 3 part 4. Languishing nearly forgotten and neglected as decoy, what was left of MJ271 still looked like a Spitfire and therefore was an attractive option for a small war museum in Delfzijl, the Netherlands. It was sold for one Guilder (as a symbolic amount - can't have the Air Force giving away stuff after all, it's taxpayer money!) and displayed on the grounds. Enterprising youngsters quickly employed it as a climbing rack, so to spare the worst the aircraft was moved to the roof. Not that it really worked.. A first restoration attempt fizzled out in the mid-70s due to lack of interest. The second attempt was more successful however. By this time the museum had closed, and thanks to the efforts of Spitfire aficionado Harry van der Meer it was sold to the National Air Museum Aviodome at Schiphol in 1978. MJ271 being dismantled from the old location @ Delfzijl - Image courtesy strijdbewijs.nl MJ271 was restored by Harry (now curator at Aviodome) with the assistance and help of Fokker trainees and KLM, and instead of the standard RAF Grey/Green the decision was made to make this Spit a bit more unique. Dutch Spitfires served with 322 Sqn in the Dutch East Indies where they were repainted in Jungle Green & light blue. Suitably redone, MJ271 now assumed the identity of another, MH424/H-53 and as such she would be part of the exhibition up until 2006. However, the move from Schiphol to Lelystad Airport in 2003 meant declining visitor numbers, and to recoup some of the losses, MJ271 was sold in 2006 into long term storage. Unfortunately, that didn't do her much good and prospects for restoration were dim. Until... Some enterprising chaps decided it was a good idea to fly a Spit around the world... MJ271 was purchased by the Boultbee Flight Academy in 2016 and was offered to the Aircraft Restoration Company (ARC) at Duxford for restoration and to make her airworthy again. That process took nearly three years, and in preparation a newer engine, larger oil tanks and extra fuel tanks were installed. June 2019 saw her first post-restoration flight and with the civil registration G-IRTY started her travel around the world on august 5th 2019. And the rest, they say, is history. Harry van der Meer and Matt Jones @ Lelystad Airport, the last stop of the epic journey. - image via Aviodrome
  2. VPAF MiG's, Part 2: MiG-17PF 'Fresco-D' (AZ Model 1:72) MiG-17PF 'Fresco-D', '4721', pilot Lam Van Lich, 921st 'Sao Do' FR, 3. February 1966 'First Nightfighter Kill' MiG-17PF, the uglier (?) radar equipped brother of the legendary MiG-17F. Even with the limited qualities of the radar, it gave VPAF some night fighter capability. Directed to the target area by ground controller and turning the radar on at the last possible moment to surprise the enemy. This tactic was pioneered by Lam Van Lich who took of alone in the evening of february 3rd 1966 to intercept Skyraiders. At the target area he detected and fired upon two Skyraiders - and got credited the first VPAF night kills (US sources do not confirm these kills). Getting started with the VPAF builds, here is the second one: Back of the box. The stuff we're gonna use - contents of the box and some aftermarket enhancements (atleast I hope they are enhancements). Little bit of resin, which should make Rich happy. We'll see how we marry this to the plastic fuselage. Hoping that those white spots are just dust and not cracks. Detail is bit soft on some places but in general it's pretty decent for a smaller manufacturer. I think we can make a good looking MiG out of this. Aftermarket stuff were gonna use. Masks, metal guns & pitot and resin ejection seat. Here's the scheme and decals - more info about it at the top of this post. My other MiG's: VPAF MiG's, Part 1: MiG-17 'Fresco-A' (Zvezda 1:72) VPAF MiG's, Part 3: MiG-21PFL 'Fishbed-D' (Eduard 1:72) VPAF MiG's, Part 4: MiG-19S 'Farmer-C' (KP 1:72) VPAF MiG's, Part 5: MiG-21F-13 'Fishbed-C' (Modelsvit 1:72)

  8. Now that I've finished a Group Build Corsair and waiting on parts to print for my other current build got me to thinking what to build next( I know that's hazardous)? So I came up with something in the same vein as the Corsair.... AZ Model's Kawasaki KI-48-I Type 99 "Sokei" Lily WiITH! KI-148 I-GO-1 Missile and trolley. Might as well admit up front, this will not be an OOB build I'm going to see what and how much I can stuff into this little plane. So if you feel like tagging along Welcome aboard! The bar is open and comfey seating abounds. As always all comments, suggestions, kibitzing and general catcalls and mayhem are welcome. So without further ado lets get this party started, shall we?

  10. Hi all Hope you are all well and able to stay safe. I have had this one on the shelf of Doom for a while and inspired by others on here with their shelf of doom builds I decided to finish this off. I started this last year as part of the Flying Boats and Floatplanes GB II but did not finish in time. This is the AZ \Model 1/48 Grumman Gosling. Here is the link to the started GB thread Built OOB with the addition of new scratch built seat frames, Consul above windscreen with throttle levers, Aileron actuator levers, ring aerial, hand grabs and cleats. The kit is brush painted as usual with Humbrol enamels and washed with Oils. The rigging and aerial wire is invisible thread. For a limited run Kit it was an enjoyable build. I was going to do the props as they would have been in wood below however did not think this would have been like this at the time used by the FAA I wasn't happy with the colour of the roundels being a bit too bright, but did not have anymore and I have already bought too many goodies recently !!! Apologies for the dust , it happens when you are doing building work unfortunately. Hope you enjoy Stay Safe and all the best Chris
