  1. I tripped across this kit looking for carrier deck parts and thought it would be a unique build. Did some reading up on the drone and found out an interest combat proven history in recent conflicts. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northrop_Grumman_MQ-8_Fire_Scout This Brengun kit in 1/48th on first look has nice surface detail it will take some careful cutting to get the parts off the carrier sprune. Plans are very straight forward should be a good build I havent done a kit like this in a non traditional format.

  4. Art Chesters JEEP brengun 1/48 resin kit the chester jeep was built for the 1932 national air races in the USA, it raced up until the 1948 cleveland air races and unlike alot of racing planes of that era it still survives. the brengun kit is lovely, goes together really well, the only problem i had was the vacform canopy, but that might have been me and my 'love' of vac form canopies. i have taken some photos next to a airfix spitfire PR19, just so you get an idea how small this plane really is. thank you for looking.

  10. AV-8B Resin Accessories for Hasegawa Kit 1:72 Brengun Hasegawa's AV-8B Harrier has been around for a good while now. It represents classic Hasegawa in the sense that it provides everything you need to build a high quality Harrier while never going over the top in terms of engineering or detail. The kit has also been re-released by Revell on at least one occasion. Now Brengun have released a swathe of resin goodies to update and upgrade an already impressive kit. AV-8B Nozzles (BRL72183) This set provides nicely detailed hot and cold exhaust nozzles. Aside from the crisp detail, the parts are cast in one piece which will negate the need to spend ages tidying up the two-part kit items. I've used similar sets in the past and found them to be far superior to the kit items, as well as being much easier to use. AV-8B Cockpit (BRL72182) This set contains upgrade parts for the kit's cockpit. Unlike many upgrade sets, which contain a complete replacement cockpit tub, this set is designed to be used alongside the kit parts. Included in the set are sidewall details and consoles, a choice of instrument panels (for Night Attack and... um, Day Attack versions) and a fret of photo etched parts, most of which are upgrade parts for the kit's seat, as well as other bits and bobs. I personally would have preferred a resin seat, but that could still be an option as there are many of those available. AV-8B Night Attack Nose (BRL72184)] If you don't have the Night Attack version of the Hasegawa kit, with the FLIR bump built into the nose cone, then you can simply stick this bad boy on the front and hey presto. The resin is beautifully cast and nicely detailed and, thanks to the design of the Hase kit, you don't even need to saw off the old nose to use it. AV-8B Wheels (BRL72185) This set includes replacement wheels for the kit, including the outrigger wheels, as well as a replacement for the lower part of the nose gear leg. There is a tiny fret of photo etched parts that includes scissor links that can be added to the kit legs as well. The resin is nicely cast and includes fine detail on the tyres that is absent from the kit parts. Conclusion Hasegawa's AV-8B Harrier II is an excellent kit and I'm sure it will remain a popular choice with modellers for quite some time to come. While these sets join a somewhat crowded marketplace, the quality is sufficient for them to be able to hold their own and provide a useful option for modellers looking to upgrade their kit.

  19. Yakovlev Yak-1b 1:72 Brengun Prior to the outbreak of WWII, the Yakovlev Design Bureau was best known for designing and building lightweight recreational and sporting aeroplanes. Starting with the Yak-2/Yak-4 light bomber, Yakovlev used this experience to create a sequence of successful, lightweight aircraft which used composite construction to reduce weight. The fighter aircraft produced during this period were largely compact and highly maneuverable. While the development of the new aircraft was not without difficulty, by the time Operation Barbarossa got underway over 400 Yak-1s had ben constructed, although not all were operational. In contrast to the MiG-3, the Yak-1 excelled at low altitude combat, with just 17 seconds required to perform a full circle. Although lightly armed by western standards, the Yak-1 was popular with Soviet pilots. It went on to be developed into the Yak-7, Yak-9 and Yak-3, with over 37,000 examples constructed in total. Brengun are a manufacturer of limited run kits from Brno, the Czech Republic's second city. They first came to my attention via their Hawker Typhoon kit back in 2013, but their catalogue is diverse, including kits and aftermarket parts in a range of scales. As befits a dimunitive aircraft, their Yak-1 arrives packed into a small, end-opening box, inside which are three frames of grey plastic, a small frame of clear parts, an even smaller fret of photo etched details and a sheet of decals. There are around sixty parts in total, excluding the photo etched details. The cockpit makes extensive use of photo etched material, with parts for the instrument panel, seat support arms and cockpit floor all rendered in metal. Plastic parts include the seat itself, the control column, oxygen bottles and medical kit. The sidewalls are nicely detailed and include the characteristic internal steel framwork. Once complete, the cockpit and the pin for the propellor can be fixed inside the fuselage halves. The upper deck and cowling is moulded separately to the fuselage, and includes nicely recess for the 20mm ShVAK cannon. Assembly then turns to the flying surfaces. The rudder is moulded separately to the fuselage and connects via to slots to the vertical tail. The lower surfaces of the wings are moulded as a single central span, while the upper surfaces are moulded as separate parts. The main gear bays are pretty nicely detailed and should be of sufficient depth. Each of the engine exhausts is moulded in four parts, all of which connect from the outside of the airframe. The undercarriage legs are accurately represented, with the same excellent level of detail as the rest of the kit. Each leg is made up from four parts excluding the wheels. The canopy is moulded in seperate stages to allow it to be finished in the open position. Decal options include: Yak-1b, 586 IAP (Women's Fighter Group), 1943; Yak-1b, 910 IAP, flown by Nikolai A Kozlov, February 1943; Yak-1b, 3 GIAP, flown by Lt. L.P. Savkin, Baltic Region, 1943; Yak-1b, 291 IAP, flown by A.F. Lavrenov, 1943 Each of the schemes is finished in the same green and black over pale blue camouflage. Despite the lack of variety, the decals look nicely printed. Conclusion There can be no doubt that Brengun's Yak-1b is a limited run kit but this doesn't mean it's any less appealing. It is nicely produced, has plenty of interior detail and captures the look of the real thing very nicely. The surface detail is delicate and the fabric over the rear fuselage is particularly convincing. Overall this looks like a really nice little kit that should be enjoyable to build. Recommended.

  22. I saw a new member (I think?) showing off his finished example the other day, and you know what a sucker for silly and unusual things I am. I picked one in 1:48 up from Brengun off eBay for as cheap as Cheapo McChips, and treated it to a PE set from the same brand because that cockpit with be SO visible won't it? Anyway - I thought I could use some of the paints from my Triebflugel build here to speed the process along, and as it's tiny weeny, it shouldn't take long to get done (famous last words!). I've put the cockpit together with its PE frippery, and scribed a set of lines in the cannon feed to give it a bit more detail. I've also lopped off the rocket exhaust pipe, as it was a bit soft, so I hollowed it out and fitted a length of aluminium tubing to replace it. I've added a backstop inside from strips of styrene, and will perfect the shape of the aft fuselage once it's together. I've also got a Master barrels Mk.108 barrel on the way too, as the kit barrel is a bit... stick-like. here's a quick shot of the parts laid out ready for primer on the cockpit and fuselage interior. Don't worry, I'm not abandoning the Spinny-thing just yet
  23. AN/ALE 47 Countermeasures Dispenser (BRL48122) 1:48 Brengun Modern aircraft that must face attacks from missiles similar to the ones they themselves carry need to defend themselves accordingly using chaff to confuse radar and flares to distract heat seekers. You often see the flares popping off at air shows, creating a point of immense heat that simulates the exhaust signature of a jet engine. The chaff doesn't show up so well, and cleaning-up the pieces off an active runway means they're seldom used other than in combat. The dispensers are usually found on the fuselage or wing roots of aircraft, and the AN/ALE 47 system is common on NATO aircraft, installed in recessed bays in boxes that can be triggered as needed by connected electronics. The dispensers fit flush with the skin of the fuselage to minimise drag, and once used the individual slots are clearly open to the elements – do they whistle at speed? The system is closely integrated with the aircraft's threat detection systems, and can either fire autonomously or at the request of the pilot, which is handy for airshows. Coming into service in the late 90s, they are seen on many of NATO's aircraft of that vintage. Other chaff and flare systems are available. The set arrives in a small flat(ish) package with three resin pouring plugs full of 30 different versions and complements of partly used, empty and full packs for you to use in your models. You can either cut the moulded-in kit depiction from the model and insert the boxes flush with the skin, box in the aperture and show them being installed or removed from the location by ground crew or, if you need to add the system where they don't already exist, fit them into your newly created dispenser. I'm sure there are other situations where they'll come in handy too, and they are easy to fit and use with a bit of minor surgery the only likely task to enable them to fit. They are much more crisp and detailed than any of the moulded-in systems I've seen on my travels, so it's a great way to add a little extra realism to your model. Highly recommended.

  24. C-130J Engine Nacelles (BRL48123 for Italeri) 1:48 Brengun The large scale Hercules from Italeri has been around in many guises over the years, with the C-130J having popped up this side of the new millennium and most recently in 2014. It's a kit that is of a certain age now, but as there's fat chance of anyone issuing a new one in 1:48 scale, we have to take it as it comes with some elements that are less accurate than others. The J is the latest model of the Herc, and the only one still in production with upgraded Rolls-Royce turboprop engines and sabre-like Dowty props differentiating it from the previous marks externally. Those aren't the only upgrades, as the whole avionics package has been updated with new cockpit and countermeasures, plus improved range and performance. The J in kitform has a few challenges, one of which is the engine nacelles. This set is designed to address that, with resin parts that can far exceed the capabilities of plastic in terms of finesse and detail. The set arrives in a cardboard box that is sealed by its label and inside are found twelve large parts in grey resin, plus another twelve small parts in groups of three on the same pouring block. It's a Herk. In 1:48. So it's large. The parts are large too as you'd expect, and each nacelle comes in two parts with the front separate from the body so that a very crisp and thin leading edge lip can be achieved on the upper intake as well as the lower chin-scoop. The parts have a little engraved line where you should cut, and the front slides inside the lip of the nacelle, with the new prop boss slotting neatly into the front, allowing you to choose your preferred orientation. You'll notice that there are no blades included with the set, as Brengun consider the 6 blades on each engine to be up to the task – that's 32 - no 24 blades in total Chris (in-joke). The remaining parts are two antennae for under each nacelle, and a small cooling vent for the rear of the lower intake, which conveniently hides the blanked off exit. To install the engines on the wing, just remove 2.25mm from the inner nacelle roots and glue them in place with CA or epoxy glue as you see fit. Incidentally, you may notice the smaller parts have little extensions at the top of each high-point. These are bubble "traps" that should be cut off before you apply the parts, and are used to avoid inconvenient bubbles in delicate parts. Conclusion Well cast with only one or two bubbles in trailing edges, but these are easy to fix with some styrene rod or filler. The low part count is a boon, and everything fits together neatly, as you can see from the example above, which is only held together with a piece of Blutak behind the spinner. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  25. RQ-7B Shadow UAV (BRS48009) 1:48 Brengun The RQ-7 Shadow is a tactical unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developed the AAI Corporation. The requirement for such a tactical UAV capable of battlefield reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition had been identified by the US Military and originally the RQ-6 Outrider was developed for this, however this programme was cancelled after 3 years of development. AAI looked at their existing RQ-2 Pioneer and developed this design into the Shadow. The small UAV with a length of 3.4m and a wingspan of 3.8m weighs in at 170kgs loaded. It has a 6 hour endurance, stretched to 9 with increased endurance wings. Take off is from a pneumatic assisted launcher, and landing are automatic with a ground mounted arrestor hook system. The improved RQ-7B arrived in 2004 with an increased payload capacity of 45 kgs and new "wet" more aerodynamic wings. Avionics have been improved and a new radio relay communications package installed to allow troops to communicate in locations in which radio would not normally work. Further developments of the system are to be introduced which may include IED jamming and ability for troops to see directly what the UAV is seeing. Arming the UAV was looked at however the USMC ran out of available development funds and the US Army had shown little interest in this. The shadow is currently in use by the US Army, US Marine Corps, and the US Navy. Overseas operators being Australia, Italy, Romania and Sweden, The Kit This is a re-boxing of the Attack Squadron kit by Brengun which first came out in 2017. The kit is all resin with a small PE fret and a small decal sheet. There is one block with the wings, one with the fuselage and tail booms, one with the inverted V tail, and two with all the other small resin parts. Construction is fairly simple. The wings attach to each side of the main body, underneath the sensor turret is added. The engine then fits onto the rear of the main body, you then have a choice of a resin, or PE propeller. At the rear the twin booms extend out to the inverted V tail. The basic sprung landing gear is then attached, as are some aerials and the control horns for the flying surfaces. As the kit is resin all the joints are butt type, so some care will be needed to get everything aligned correctly. The Decals There is no printers name on the decals, so could be in house? They appear to be glossy, and in register. The decals consist of serial numbers and warning tests only. The UVA is painted overall in Ghost Gull Grey (FS 36375) with patches of Dark Grey (FS 35270). Conclusion This is a great kit of this diminutive modern UAV. It is good to see more models of UAVs. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
