  1. So I was dinking around with my stash and realized that over the years, I had accumulated a variety of MiG-29 and Su-27 kits. Part of the issue of not starting them was not having any idea which scheme to do, but now that I have so many kits and decals, I thought, why not do a bunch at once? Presenting.... THE MIG-29 SINGLE TYPE SOLO BUILD!!!! There would be no time limit on this, and no limit to how many I will do. I might even add more as I go along (eg when the new MiG-29SMT kit comes out). I might not even do them sequentially, as I would segway into other projects to avoid burning out. Anyway here's what I have for starters: Nothing is set in stone, but I will most likely build a MiG-29N out of the Trumpeter kit, an Indian bird out of one of the Italeri kits, an Iranian bird out of the one one top of the box, either a Bangledeshi or Burmese one out of the Airfix, with the possibility of getting one of the new redbox Airfix kits for those awesome Czech markings. For the Condor boxings, I'l thinking of a Ukrainian ground attack example for the 9-13 aka MiG-29S, and maybe converting the MiG-29SMT into the UPG, if I can figure out the external differences. Of course being a Russian bird, I'll need on in Russian markings, so that's what the Zvezda kit's for. I also have an eye out for the newer, upcoming Trumpeter and Zvezda kits. I haven't figured out what to do with the UB yet, I'll have to see what cool schemes there are out there. Finally, I will likely do one more as a what-if (Finnish or USAF Aggressor maybe?) Anyway I hope I can maintain some steam on this very ambitious project. I'm also hoping this might get some of you guys to do the same. Construction starts tonight!
  2. Hi all, Well, here's (almost) the first duplicate entry into the Group Build - but Muzz has the decals for Red 40 (low-viz crest) whilst I've opted for Red 56 (Red / White crest) to be done as it was at RIAT 2015. To be made from the GWH Early boxing (which also contains the Late parts) plus some extras. First the box lid and the sprues and finally the goodies Eduard zoom cockpit set Caracal decals (now out of stock) Model Master turned brass static wicks Some Eduard Brassin pylons - much more detail than kit and aircraft was displayed with two empty pylons per wing A few resin bits left over from an earlier Eduard / Academy build Attack Squadron Polish detail set (resin aerials, cockpit extras and photoetch) This is going to be a busy time with From Russia and Made in Britain already ongoing, not to mention F-15 starting before this one finishes but hopefully I will get this finished by the deadline. Regards Mike
  3. AH-1W Super Cobra NTS HMLA-467 9/11 tribute the plan for the time being is to do the following mashine; AH-1W BuNo. 160820, HMLA-467 in tribute markings (FDNY 9/11 tribute scheme) Caracal decals provided the inspiration and will provide the decals I hope! (I still have to order them!! ) http://caracalmodels.com/cd48116.html http://www.rs.nato.int/article/news/tribute-to-new-york-fire-department-ladder-company-patrols-afghan-sky.html but I got hold of the necessary conversion set from Olimp models (NTS update and new exhaust shrouds), was a bit hard to find I have to say! Only Then! I got the kit locally in the store should have the 20mm cannon from Master somewhere in the stash... and then- there is nothing more out there that could complicate/ lengthen the build! not even PE from Eduard.... thanks Craig for some tips already in his thread (rotors turn wrong in the kit!!!!) already started to cut plastic and resin
  4. MQ-9 Reaper French Airforce 1/33 "Belfort" operation Barkhane 1/48 Kinetic kit reboxed by Revell decals: he excellent ones from Caracal Models WiP: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234992379-mq-9-reaper-french-airforce-133-belfort-operation-barkhane-148/ finally finished! was definitely more than a weekend project as initially planned! first, I identified the need to know a bit more about the Reaper, then I noticed that France operates a more modern version than the kit represented, then I needed to modify,....etc. you know this, don't you? but here you are all the necessary mods: , no photoshop, he! just natural sunlight reflection! thanks for comments! Salut, Werner

    JF-17 Thunder

    JF-17 Thunder 26 Squadron Pakistan Air Force – Peshawar Air Base 2014 I don’t often think about Pakistani stuff when it comes to modelling. However, having seen the two 26 Sqn JF-17s at Farnborough in 2010 I was moved to invest in a Trumpeter 1/72 kit. And a really nice modern kit it is too. It feels like a 1/48 kit reduced to 1/72 size – or at least that’s the impression when you see the level of detail included in things like the undercarriage wells, cockpit interior, etc. The original looks like a cross between an F-16 and a Grippen and is a genuine ‘4th generation’ jet from a joint Chinese / Pakistani project, with advanced aerodynamics, fly-by-wire and digital avionics. It is supposedly called a ‘JF-17’ to show that it’s one-up on the F-16! Be careful if you build one though. The kit is very ‘Chinese’ rather than ‘Pakistani’. I found that the Pakistani version has a Martin Baker Mk.16 seat rather than the Chinese seat in the kit. A pity, because most of the usable PE in the kit goes on the seat! I say ‘usable’ because much of the PE provided is supposed to make up the engine exhaust nozzle, but mine was in the bin in no time and I opted for the easier (and actually better looking) plastic nozzle. The JF-17 uses the same engine as the Mig 29 so there may be some resin stuff out there somewhere also. There is also some very fine PE for the HUD, which I did use. The instructions give the undercarriage legs and wells colour as ‘dark blue-grey’ which I found is OK for the Chinese version, but white seems the predominant colour for Pakistani machines. The stores are all Chinese also. I didn’t find this out until I had completed mine, but Pakistani drop tanks are Mirage III/V – like, with different fins from those in the kit. I used the Caracal decal sheet – and very nice it is too. It provides the only source of the 26 Sqn ‘Black spider’ fin markings displayed at Farnborough. Overall a very enjoyable project.
