  1. SS Xantho, Western Australia's First Steamship. St George's Terrace is the main business thoroughfare of Perth and every 20 metres or so along its length, embedded in the footpath is a plaque similar to the one shown below. Each plaque commemorates a year in the history of Western Australia and the most eminent person in the state that year. There are some names you may have heard of; Allan Bond, Dennis Lillee and Bob Hawke for example - I note that Rolf Harris's one has recently disappeared!? But most of the names are those of administrators, academics or business
  2. Hello Everybody... I was reading a post by @modelling minion in one of the Corsair STGB Threads. He made a comment that we could do a group build on Kiwi Corsairs and the lightbulb went off. Is anyone here interested in a group build based on the ANZAC History ? Im talking anything to do with Australia and New Zealand be it civilian or Militarily. From the day they started as Colonies to them becoming Independent Nations. Wether in there own defense or as part of the Commonwealth service, in both Peacetime and at War. I believe their were Australian and New Zealand crewed Ships in both World w
  3. This build started as a "rescue" kit that came to me partially built, as explained in the step-by-step posting: It is a companion of the recently-completed Lan Chile Junkers: My thanks once more to friend, fellow modeler and Ornithopters' member Sönke for kindly donating the rescue kit. My gratitude also to those who helped providing useful information during the build, especially Günther Ott of ADL in Germany. Any inaccuracies in the model are entirely my fault. Last but no least thanks to Mika Jernfors of Arctic Decals, who warned me about the stagger of the seat rows and wi
  4. Hi, Anyone got any ideas where I can get the dimensions for the bigger span oz F111 wings ? Like to build one but im not shelling out 50 60 70 quid for one,cant be to difficult to sandwich a couple of pieces of plastic card together and etch out some details
  5. I went to the Tyabb airshow this Sunday - as usual, a nice collection of beautiful warbirds. I'll post photos here from time to time as I get round to processing them, for now here is the RAAF Museum's recently restored CA-18 Mustang being put through its paces. Thanks for looking Julian
  6. I have an old Microscale decal No.353-International Mirage. One of the markings is for an Australian Mirage IIIO belonging to 75 Squadron. One of the markings for this aircraft is large yellow triangles on the wings. I have not found any pics showing those markings. Does any body have pics they can post or explain why they were used for?
  7. Myself and my camera wandered down to the Avalon Airshow here in Victoria yesterday. Its a biannual airshow, and I usually try to attend on one of the trade days Shooting conditions are notoriously bad, with the harsh sun in your face, heat haze and lots of gunk in the air. Anyway, managed to capture these images. I'll hopefully have a few more to add after Thursday. I have also added a link to my full album Cheers Bruce and a link to the album here https://www.flickr.com/photos/131700029@N03/albums/72157678971013968
  8. As well as modelling, I also enjoy doing a bit of photography. This link will take you to some shots that I took at the recent TAVAS Great War Flying Display at Caboolture airfield here in Queensland. Unfortunately, my DSLR is out of action at the moment, so I was using my wife's bridge camera hence why there are no in-flight pictures. Ross
  9. Ok I wont take the credit for this one but the original idea for a RAAF GB really grabbed me for some reason!!! To make it a bit more appealing and a wee bit more inclusive I thought to widen it to include not just the RAAF but to include all Australian and New Zealand service men (and women) and their equipment, be land, air or sea, throughout the years. So I would like to propose an ANZAC in Service GB. I know ANZAC was a term originally used to name the army corps of both countries during and after the Gallipoli landings but it has grown to include all services and is something of grea
  10. I don't know if this has been posted before but it is worthwhile listening to. In 1942 the Japanese were bombing ports in the north of Australia, ranging all the way across the top of the continent from Western Australia to Queensland. Several of those raids were on the city I live in now, Townsville. As it happened one of Australia's great war correspondents, Chester Wilmot, was passing through Townsville on his way to New Guinea and was doing an interview with an American pilot when the third of these raids occurred and was able to capture the sounds and give a commentary. This is from th
  11. One of my friends, displaying a touching if unrealistic faith in my modelling skills, has asked me to build a Mosquito for her ex-RAF Grandfather for his 90th birthday later this year. I understand that he was with 618 Squadron when it was in Australia working up to attack the Japanese Fleet at Truk and has recollections of the PR XVI photo-reconnaissance Mosquitos which operated with it. By way of parameters, I will be working in 1/72 and trying to keep down costs for my friend as much as possible, so any low-cost, spare part or recycling options would be warmly appreciated. To help me, I h
  12. We are pleased to announce a new relationship with Creative Models Australia who were Colourcoats stockists previously. We now have agreed a restock which we are compiling and shall be shipping imminently. Creative Models Australia shall be able to supply customers within both Australia and New Zealand. http://www.creativemodels.com.au/'>http://www.creativemodels.com.au/
  13. Something new for my Korean War aircraft collection - 1/72 Hawker Sea Fury FB.11, serial VX 730, number K 109, 805. Squadron Royal Australian Navy, HMAS Sydney, Korea 1951. Built with Trumpeter`s kit, Eduard`s Zoom PE parts for cockpit and Pavla`s resin propeller. Some modifications were made (for ex.: 3mm longer gear struts, bigger wheels, area behind the cockpit aligned to fuselage, opened step on port side, exhaust pipes, pitot tube etc.). Decals are from AIMS decals set "UK & Commonwealth in Korea". Painted with Gunze C.
  14. Here I present my second AFV build, the Airfix 1/76 scale Matilda finished as a vehicle from 2/4 Armoured Regiment, Australian Army, New Guinea, 1944 (see here for details from the Australian War Memorial, also some great photos here from the same site). Intended as a long weekend quick build in time for Australia Day - and I managed it! The basic kit needed some modifications to make it look more like one of the Australian Matilda's, including cutting down the height of the commanders cupola, the addition of some scratch built stowage boxes and some wire mesh to cover the rear hull - my firs
  15. Vickers Wellesley, one of those forgotten types from the unfashionable side of modelling. Here's the very first boxing that I will be using for the build: Typical Matchbox kit, basic but accurate to the eye. I'll add a few details but won't be going rivet crazy - actually theres very few rivets in the design as it is a smaller brother to it's more famous stablemate the Wellington and shares it's fabric covered geodesic structure. As befits the simple kit it's appears a simple build: Schemes are two similar green/brown birds differentiated by their engines. Option 1 is a standard short
  16. Wow everyone is quick listing their builds! Ok for this GB I’m doubling up, not just the colour scheme is Australian but the aircraft was designed and built here as well! So here she is Not the prettiest aircraft ever build but it was Australia’s first combat aircraft to be designed and built here. Initially it was designed as a fighter but it lacked speed and high altitude performance to take on the Japanese fighters. But it was easy to fly and quite agile along with its heavy armament meant it was a good light ground attack aircraft. It featured extensive armour plating over an airfram
  17. http://www.panoramio.com/user/7396952?comment_page=1&photo_page=1 9 Pages of RAN, RAAF, RAF, RN, RMAF. Something for everyone. I found the link on hyperscale.com. Enjoy Pete
