  1. I'd like to start my first WIP to share my progress with all of you here on this project, inspired by Moggy and hgbn's threads on their builds of this classic plane. Slowly but surely, I've been building up my collection of the types that fought in 1982, and I knew at some point, the Hasegawa Neptune in 72nd was a must. My intention is to model the famous "2-P-112" aircraft in the following scheme, and try to replicate the war-weary finish of these birds that flew sorties until they gave up the ghost: Last week I started re-scribing and riveting the entire model, to vary
  2. Hi all, Thought that I would share some pics with you all of one of my latest completed models. Built as part of the ongoing (and excellent) Corsair STGB it is Hasegawa's 1/48 F4U-5NL built as an aircraft operated by the Argentine Navy during their 1963 (unsuccessful) revolt against their government. Still a nice kit to build despite getting on a bit it does have a few issues but nothing drastic. I used an old set of FCM decals and they performed very well indeed and certainly seem to be accurate to the pictures I have seen. Enough waffle here are the pictures;
  3. Hello guys, here's my latest model, Hobby Boss's Mirage IIICJ with the markings of the Fuerza Aérea Argentina. I used Condor Decals decals for the insignia.
  4. Hello guys! After nearly three months without scale models to build, I was able to snatch this one from a Facebook seller, Hobby Boss's Mirage IIICJ in 1:48. I won't be using the kit decals, I'll use the ones printed by Condor Decals (of Argentina). The final scheme will be of a Mirage IIICJ based at El Plumerillo Ait Base, Mendoza, 1986. Here are the obligatory box, sprues and decals shots:
  5. Hello... I greet the community from Argentina. I see that I joined Britmodeller in 2015, but I never wrote anything... I can assure you that I'm not a ghost! ^ ^ I am a lover of everything that has wings produced between 1919 and 1939... I am also very tempted by the WWI planes, and the beautiful curves of any time (of some planes too). Although the interwar world is usually silvery with some well-documented colors, being a ghost can sometimes be very convenient at the moment of interpreting lost livery in b/w. I embrace this hobby from the scratch, drawings, and som
  6. Hello guys, this is my latest project, Hasegawa's 1:48 F-86. It was an awesome kit to build, without issues.
  7. Began another Airfix kit last week. This one has really thick spruegates, so some parts ended up with some damage. Box: Sprues (the clear one is not pictured): Decals (I'll paint the Argentinian flag instead of using the decals): First assemblies. In order to reduce weight, I cut off the exhause of the exhaust pipe and glued them to the aircraft (not pictured). More photos soon.
  8. This exquisite little gem from the works of a one-man-in-a-room enterprise in Argentina is a refreshing and beautiful piece of the local aviation history. With a super-clean cast, delicately mastered parts, and fine detail, it is up there with the best in resin releases, and no doubt a product at the very top of cottage industry. If you compare this resin kit with most of what you see in the market (and I have built -and still have in the stash- many), you may feel the urge to trash some of the ones lurking in your stash, which compare extremely unfavorably with this one.
  9. I finished the Corsair today, and there wad enough light in my room, so I was able to take some photos of the finished model. The canopy didn't fit at all, it's too narrow in the end and just hangs above the canopy railing. I also lost one of the gun mounts, and had to fashion a new one from one of the pieces.
  10. Hello guys, here's a glimpse of what will be my next model, an F4U-5 from the Argentinian Navy in 1:48, the kit will be Hasegawa's F4U-5N with parts for a night fighter, but also for the daylight fighter. I'll use Phoenix decals as the only aftermarket. I bought two sheets in case one fails me, but both sheets look ok. All the options are for daylight aircraft, which carried a Light Gull Grey upper colours and white undersides, together with white landing gears and wheel hubs. Click the follow button if you'd like to see how this build goes!
  11. I had bought this kit in a discount from Dukel Hobbies, they were selling it with aftermarket decals and the paints for 2500ARS, cheaper than buying the kit and decals from Hannants. Finished the Canberra yesterday. The kit has some issues, such as the huge gaps when attaching the wings, the wheels that don't have a positive fit on the main landing gear, the cockpit floor that is warped, etc... The only thing I don't like about how I finished it is the demarcation line on the nose, I painted it with different lengths on the right and left sides, and it sorely shows. Anyways, her
  12. After finishing my Spitfire with the Watts two bladed propeller, I decided to begin my biggest project to date, Airfix's Canberra in 1:48. My goal is to have one MIIIE, a SuE, an A-4, a Canberra and a Harrier for the South Atlantic War (see guys? My interests also go beyond German Luftwaffe). Spitfire, boxart and decals. I made several test fits of the cockpit to the fuselage. The floor of it is warped, making it a bit difficult to place. The model also needs 100g minimum of weight to keep it from being a tail sit
  13. I found aftermarket decals for the Argentinian Dagger with the much-loved scheme. the painted over yellow stripes with green (ending up being torquois) to cover the American SEA camouflage. The Only game in Moscow in 1/72 was a bagged Novo Mirage III, the nose of which was tapered down and a new under nose pitot added. I painted the drop tanks in sand camo as they had been borrowed from the Chileans. I then placed it next to my other Novo Mirages of the RAAF and Israeli Air force (Shahak). The base is homemade.
  14. A build from 10 years ago: Another jewel found in the AAHS Journal (Spring 1968), the Argentinian Gresci (or Greschi, or perhaps even Grescci) helicopter imposes its towering beauty upon the unwashed modeling masses. Only two photos can be found in the Journal, of the blurry/grainy quality type, but hey, better than nothing. I found nada on other sources on this very obscure subject, including the ever-providing Internet. Mr Gresci, as stated in the Journal, also designed the 50 hp rotary engine that was supposed to propel the artifact, but apparently choked and died in t
  15. And the last for today, an Argentinian design! (Model built in 2009) Argentinians are very creative people. They have a knack for food, dances and…aviation. Being myself originally from Argentina, let this be an homage to those pioneers that far away from the then centers of development nevertheless dared to dream. Mr. Federico Correa, an engineer, was one of the many pioneers that contributed and propelled aviation in the country from the early days. Of his innovative design only one photo seems to be available, which I saw published in the AAHS (American Aviation H
  16. Hi guys, I will be building a A-4Q skyhawk in 1/48 scale from Hobby Craft. There are some decals to build a B, but also decals for a Q version that where operated at the start from the Falklands war at the aircraft carrier Veintcino De Mayo There are some different schemes in the box. I could do a original painted one with grey and white in high visibility scheme or later in the war when they were operated from land base. Here are the pictures of the box and it's content. The content of the box the decals and the colour schemes. These a
  17. And now the smallest model I`ve ever made - 1/72 scale Beechcraft T-34C Turbo Mentor, Argentine Navy`s Air Force, Falklands 1982. The kit is quite old short-run, one of the first Sword`s kits (definitely not for beginners). Some self-made additives were used (new canopy, new propeller, antennas etc.). Decals are combination of DP Casper and Xtradecal "Falklands War" sets. It was quite difficult to match the right colors, because on most photos we can see them faded, so it`s only my interpretation. The final result is below my expectations, but it was all that my skills allowed me to do with
  18. Here is my A-4C Skyhawk in 1/72 made from Fujimi kit, converted to Argentinian version (mainly self-made antennas). I also used Pavla resin ESCAPAC ejection seat. Decals are mix of DP Casper, Xtradecal and Condor Decals Falklands War`s sets. The rest is out of the box. My inspiration was this well known photo: Most probably it`s A-4C number C-313 of Teniente Jorge Casco in it`s last flight on 9th May 1982. This day C-313 crashed during combat flight, pilot died. Jorge Casco was buried 27 years later (7th March 2009) on Argentinian Military Cemetery, Darwin, Falk
  19. In 1997 I had an impromptu holiday to Argentina (not quite a Withnail “we have come on holiday by mistake” but not really planned). What followed was one of the best trips I have ever had.. Lovely people, lovely country and great food and wine. I also remember seeing lots of rather tired looking retired Argentine airforce planes outside rather tired looking airforce bases....in particular some rather battered looking meteors. Anyway I finally build one of those meteors a few years ago from a nice MGM kit and have been looking for follow up Argentine builds since then.
  20. Hi all, Yet another project! Does anyone know the font for the Argentine naval fixed wing machine, specifically the Neptune and the Tracker (both old schemes)? I need to reproduce the "ARMADA" and serials. Thanks in advance, Martin
  21. Hello, Here are a few photographs of a Mohawk hiding away in a suburb in Buenos Aires. If you are there, go hunt it down; the museum is great and you won't regret doing so. Walkaround and info on Argentine Mohawks here: http://warbirdswalkaround.wixsite.com/warbirds/single-post/2016/12/19/Mohawk-Over-the-Pampas-The-OV-1D-in-Buenos-Aires
  22. Here`s another model from my Falklands collection - Argentine Super Etendard in 1/72. Made from old Academy`s kit. Eduard`s PE set was used. Some modifications have been made: nose is a little longer and has a bigger angle, Exocet`s pylon is taken from Heller`s kit, ladder and the electronic pod under the fusselage were self-made, flaps were cut off etc. Decals are mix of Academy, DP Casper and Xtradecal sets. It`s my interpretation of Super Etendard number 3-A-202 before Exocet attack, May 1982. Best regards, Alex
  23. I would like to share my current project here, it's a pair of 1/32 Trumpeter Skyhawks one A-4F to be converted into an A-4Q and one A-4M to be converted into an A-4AR A-4Q A-4AR Is quite a challenging task, specially the A-4Q which needs a new smaller nose, smaller intakes among other things. In this image you can see the different noses and intakes in the E/F and A/B(Q) Skyhawk versions. I started improving the cockpit with a homemade punch and die tool and some wire. Then I started to work on the nose, used a block of balsa wood trimmed to the basic shape Once I was satisfi
  24. Well, I always wanted to build aircrafts of Falklands subject, and after a 1/48 Sea Harrier from Tamiya, I decided to build a T-34C Mentor, used by Argentina during the war. Unfortunately, the two available kits of Mentor in this scale are not good, so I made a lot of scratch work to improve the kit. The complete build pictures and comments can be found here, at IPMS-Rio de Janeiro website: http://www.aprj.com.....php?f=8&t=3036 Some pics during the battle: The finnished model: I hope you appreciate !
