  1. Part of the reason I bought and built the Lynx (RFI coming soon, honest) was to get my head in to the right space for building helicopters and hopefully do a better job of the Chinook as a result. I have the Italeri HC.2 / CH-47F kit which is a bit of a weird thing even before the get go, because (if I understand it) the HC.2 was the UK version of the D. Except for the Netherlands D, they had the analogue cockpit instruments. The CH-47F in contrast was the basis for the HC mk 6, which had the glass cockpit. I guess you could build either ( but not both!) from this kit, although it only comes with decals for the analogue cockpit so... Anyway The plan is to build ZA-712 ER of 7 squadron during its green HC2 phase. It features in the superb model alliance decals as an HC1 in 1991 / op Granby, but I want to make an HC-2 and I don't think I could pull off the black "scribbling" over desert pink camouflage. So I'm going to model the same aircraft, but from a later date when it was painted green, which means that I'll be using a combination of kit and Model Alliance decals. The reason I picked this aircraft is because 7 squadron is part of JSFAW which supports the UK special forces, meaning that I can include the beautiful miniguns that I bought from Live Resin. So, onwards. Cockpit first. The rear wall of the cockpit needs some detail removing and slightly bulking out the area where the PE goes as it doesn't quite look big enough. You can see it here. I added some PE to the cabin bulkhead, but I've read / seen that mostly the LHS is covered by soundproofing and often the RHS is too. I've ordered some clay "stuff" to make the sound proofing. In some of the pictures I saw the heater is partially exposed on the right, so I might go for something like that. More PE. It looks quite smart before it's painted black However, after painting it loses some of the detail. I tried to help by picking some of it out in a semi-gloss... Also, being all black makes it double-hard to photograph. Apparently. The PE instrument panel came out ok though Lastly it was on to the cargo floor which I did with the usual 2 shades of grey and a dirt wash. I'm hoping the wash will settle down a bit when I give it a coat of clear matt because I think I went a little bit over the top. Anyway, that's everything for now. Thanks for looking.
  2. I have the Italeri CHinook HC.2 kit on the shelf and as the Lynx WIP is ticking along nicely, I've started thinking about what I want to do with the Chinook. I'm thinking of ZA707, which in HC2 form seems to be all over green rather than the black/sand mottled pattern that would be "interesting" to paint (phew). So I have a question about the cargo space. The rear seats in the kit seem to be moulded with support legs at the front of the seat, connected to or resting on the cargo floor. Presumably the RAF seats were capable of folding to make room for, oh I don't know maybe the Landy that came with a certain Lynx? In the case that they were folded up out of the way, what happens to these legs? I can find pictures of the seats folded, but I can't match them with what's in the box. Where do the legs go? Have Italeri got it wrong, or am I looking at the wrong pics?
  3. Hi, I'm building the Italeri 1/48 Chinook at the moment and was wondering if anyone has the dimensions for the later type rotor blades so i can have a go at modifying the kit ones, a drawing would be nice as well. All the best Dave.
  4. Many of you may have seen coverage of the transfer of Concorde 216 G-BOAF, across Filton's now disused runway, from its resting place since 2003 to the new Aerospace Bristol collection. Last Wednesday a smaller member of the collection arrived to take up permanent residence. After missing out on capturing the Concorde moving in, one of my colleagues was given a heads up that on the 8th a Sea Harrier was going to be moved by Chinook from temporary storage in the Brabazon Hangar to the new Museum. Taking advantage of this bit of intel we waited at the end of the runway to capture the last flight of Sea Harrier FA2 ZD610. Just after 09:30 the remaining spots of morning rain started to clear and Chinook ZD575 arrived, made a quick circuit, landed behind the Brabazon Hangar then collected the Harrier and transported it down the runway to a spot near the new Concorde building. Here's a few samples of the pictures I took during the transfer: Arrival in the drizzly morning: Lift-off: Travelling down the runway: In its natural element for the final time: We're going thataway: Touchdown for the very last time: Heading back to the Brabazon Hangar: Off to the next task after a good job done: Thanks for looking. Hope you enjoyed the photos. Jonathan
  5. Hi Folks, I've finally completed this. It's for my nephew for Christmas so I have to work out how I'm going to wrap it!! Anyhow, WIP is HERE if anyone is interested. Cheers Nigel
  6. Hello, A place holder for now. This has been shouting at me from the stash and although I have quite a lot on the bench and not enough time as it is, and I thought why not add another. I've been wanting to build a civvie chinook for a while and this GB is perfect. I can always build it out with the GB; but I quite enjoy taking part in GB's and I've got until November which should hopefully be enough time. I'll be attempting to build a civvie chinook (Boeing Vertol model 234LR in British Airway livery). I'm pretty sure this type of aircraft would be allowed? They where used to transport rig workers to the further reaches of the North Sea way before my time. A few guys I work with remember flying to the Brent field in these. Incidentally, I'm building an AB212 Bristows chopper that was based around the Brent field... Kit will be the italeri 1/72 MH-47E kit with the whirlybirds conversion set. Also, some Eduard PE and CMK cockpit set. The photo below includes the whirlybirds interior set as well but I think I will give this a miss for the GB as I know what I'm like and I'll get bogged down on the details. So, this one will be built with the airstair door closed but I plan to build another, in time, which will include the interior. photo of the bits Whirlybirds decal placement / instructions and a photo of the real thing. Hope to start soon. May get a chance to start the cockpit in the near future. cheers Aaron
  7. Hi Everyone, Here are some of my photos from the Eastbourne airshow, I've tried to pick my favourites out of the almost 1,000 photos I took, but still this is going to be very photo heavy. If you want to view the full 135 photos, they are in an album on my facebook, linked here : https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.488656594634727.1073741851.100004711722357&type=1&l=0724244a56 Anyway lets kick off the photos, I hope you like them. I'm trying to persuade my missus to let me go to either Bournemouth or Shoreham airshow (preferably Bournemouth) this weekend. Chinook Jet Provost Breitling Wingwalkers Typhoon Spitfire MiG-15 Grob Tutor Bulldog Sea King Eastbourne's Tamar class Lifeboat (At High Speed) Hawk T.2 Blenheim Norwegian Vampires P-51 Mustang "Ferocious Frankie" Vulcan XH558 Dakota Patrouille Reva The Blades Red Arrows Anyway, thats all of the photos I'm going to post. You can view the rest on the facebook link at the top. These photos were all taken with a Canon EOS 20D DSLR body with a 100 - 400 mm canon lens stuck on the front of it. Boy was that heavy without a tripod, but made life easier when tracking the planes. They have all been edited to improve colour balance etc. Please let me know what you think. All the best, Rick
  8. Am having a go at my own WI, its going to be is a Royal Navy Chinook, my thinking is with the new carrier's there will be plenty room for these big beasts, but in another we twist I wasnt to do it in junglie white camouflage! would also like to thank a fellow member "skids" for gifting me a few royal navy decals ! like this,
  9. The first week of November has seen some interesting movements at Newquay Airport. Unfortunately I missed the Italian Army Do.228 and Avanti which along with the Czech C-295 visited in connection with 'Exercise Arrcade Fusion' which is being held at RAF St Mawgan. Chinook HC2, ZA679 came in on the 30th Oct and stayed the night after developing a problem. ZH899 arrived on Saturday 1st Nov with crew and equipment to repair ZA679. ZA679 ZH899 Czech AF C-295M, 0455 Cobham Falcon 20s, G-FRAL, G-FRAF and G-FRAJ
  10. Hi all, This is my first post of a completed model on Britmodeller so please be gentle with me! It is also my first time using photobucket so I apologise in advance if you get lots of copies of the same picture. This is Italeri's CH-47 built and painted as a CH-47J of the JASDF. I think the camouflage makes it look completely different, which is what attracted me to it in the first place. I hope you all like the end result.

  12. Hi Everyone, I just thought I would share some of my photos from today's visit to the Eastbourne Airshow. These photos were taken on a pocket digital camera, a Nikon Coolpix L25, so unfortunately the quality of the photos is not as good as if I was using a larger digital camera. I intend to purchase a better quality digital SLR with a variety of lenses etc, if anyone has any recommendations for me, please feel free to comment. Anyway, onto the photos. The photos of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and Red Arrows are my favourites out of the photos I got. Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight - All 3 aircraft BBMF - Lancaster Chinook :- The Red Arrows :- The Red Arrows :- The Red Arrows :- The Red Arrows :- I didn't get any photos of the Typhoon unfortunately and the Sea King and Lynx AH-7 cancelled their displays and didn't show, which annoyed me no end. Several of the other displays were only watched by me rather than photographed as I was walking around the trade stalls etc at the time they were on. Full album is available on Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.199430156890707.1073741836.100004711722357&type=1&l=3d34ba4505 Thanks for looking, I hope you like the photos even though they are not of the quality most photos on here are. Cheers, Rick
