  1. Hi all! hope you’re all coping well with lockdown, looking for some advice please, currently working on a AA Trident, looking to do the speed jack BEA scheme, I’m just stuck on what shade the tail should be, as it’s quite a strange blue shade looking at reference photos. any advice would be amazing please, both rattlecan or paint mixture for airbrushing would be fine thank you
  2. This is my completed Gene Hooker Vacform 1/72 Vickers Vanguard, in BEA livery G-APEP, which has taken me a while to finish, and is the only model I have fully completed this year in 2014, I hope you like Build thread http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234924057-172-vickers-vanguard/
  3. Having a soft spot for all things Postwar Vickers aircraft, I thought I would try my hand at this Vacform model produced by Gene Hooker of USA, I think originally the moulds may of come from a Travel Agents desk model as the kit is not supplied with any props or wheels, but looking at the plans I have it looks quite accurate. This shall be a challenge as I intend to have the passenger doors open with scratch built steps, I shall be constructing the front part of the engines and making resin moulds from these, also the Aeroclub props are from the Britannia which will be modified, all the window
  4. Hawker Siddeley H.S. 121 Trident 1C G-ARPC, British European Airways, early 1970s. Airfix 1:144 kit with decals from a TwoSix Decals sheet. Although I am mostly a military aircraft modeller I sometimes make incursions in other fields. This is perhaps my most serious attempt at an airliner so far (the second) and a project I really wanted to do since I was given this kit back in 1990s. Fortunately Two Six released a sheet covering the livery I wanted instead of the British Airways scheme that came with the kit. I built this kit in 2013. The white was airbrushed but the remainin
  5. I finished it! Dog of a kit, but very satisfying to complete such a beautiful aircraft. I made this as a father's ay gift for my dad. I wanted to make it in flying jack (my favourite BEA livery) but it turns out my dad hated it! (though it clearly looked better on the Trident) Some of my earliest memories are of us going round the Vanguard at Brooklands. Stand arrived a week after this was completed too thanks to Humbrol digging through their warehouse. They don't make them like this anymore!
  6. Hello, C/N 61143 was the first S-61N - rebuilt from a S-61L in 1962! As far as I’m aware 61143 was one of the longest serving commercial S-61 ( I think the oldest was an S-61N C/N 61032). C/N 61143 is unique in that it is the only Japanese-built S-61N in the world. Apparently Mitsubishi were going to set up an S-61N production line for the Asian market. This helicopter was built as a demonstrator in anticipation of a healthy demand. The orders were not forthcoming and this was the only one built by Mitsubishi in the end, Mitsubishi gave it the C/N of M61-001. 61143 was purchased by BE
  7. Hi to all this is my little airfix Vanguard. colors by extra colors (dedicated BEA enamels) decals by Two six sweating and swearing by me (with the clear parts, using them was clearly a mistake!)http://http://i84.servimg.com/u/f84/16/03/74/40/img_2010.jpg BBCode thks for watching
  8. This is the newly-boxed kit - same 60s tooling but with new box art and decals. I suspect the moulds have been cleaned up a bit though as the parts fit very well on the whole and the styrene was nice and shiny... I re-scribed it, replaced the windows with clear resin and added a few details here and there.
  9. Hi guys Here is my S&M Models 1:144th Vickers Viscount that I was given at my club West Middlesex for a six month challenge competition. I have used Two Six Decals BEA Red Square scheme and BlurProps. This was a simple little build that I worked on and off this year recently completing and winning the club competition. The picture in the frame is a vintage postcard of G-AOYN that I found on evilbay. Finished in Tamiya, Vallejo and Halfords appliance white rattle can. I am not totally happy with the pictures but I have limited time these days so they will have to do. I hope you all enj
  10. I have been trying to complete a number of long standing builds and this has been on the back burner for quite a while. I finally completed it a couple of days ago. It's the S&M Models kit and I have used Two-Six decals. I hope that you like it, next up will be the Airfix MiG-15 which I will be working on between my MiG-21 builds for the STGB.
  11. This is the superb but tiny Dragon Rapide kit by Aeroclub. I have been trying to get it finished for a friends birthday so it will be winging its way over the weekend. The aerial mast is over scale but I could not get it any thinner without it bending when tensioning the wire, any suggestions on how to achieve this in 1/144th scale would be very welcome. Any errors are due to this modeller being ham-fisted when putting the kit together. Now to get back to my STGB build. Thanks for looking
  12. Je suis un rock star Je avais une residence Je habite-la In the sarf of France Voulez-vous Partir wiv me And come and restez-la Wiv me in France. Nope. I'm not building a Concorde. Or a hovercraft (that would've been cool!) But BEA's on strike. There's no planes flyin'...
  13. Junkers Ju-52 in BEA colours Revell 1:48 The Ju 52 was similar to the company's previous Junkers W33, although larger. In 1930, Ernst Zindel and his team designed the Ju 52 at the Junkers works at Dessau. The aircraft's unusual corrugated duralumin metal skin, pioneered by Junkers during World War I, strengthened the whole structure. The Ju 52 had a low cantilever wing, the midsection of which was built into the fuselage, forming its underside. It was formed around four pairs of circular cross section duralumin spars with a corrugated surface that provided torsional stiffening.
