  1. Hello everybody, here comes my Eduard 1/72 Hellcat. The decals are by Xtradecals and the resin flight deck is a product from redog.uk. The quality of the Eduard kit is well-known by now. Really an enjoyable built. I was at first a bit sceptical about the resin deck, but painted and weathered it looks very nice to me (and it was quite cheap compared to other producers). You can find a short WIP focussing on the painting and weathering here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235079704-hellcat-eduard-172-and-resin-flight-deck/
  2. Hi everybody and welcome to another episode of "unnecessary complicated paintjobs", I haven't finished my Canberra yet (https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235067090-canberra-b1516-akrotiri-strike-wing-172/&tab=comments#comment-3566276), but decided to do something simpler and faster in between before finishing this big short-run kit. I won't bore you with the built of the Hellcat; the Eduard kit is well known and it really is a fine kit. Instead I will focus on the weathering. That is a field where I like to experiment and try out new thing even though in the
  3. This is my last Hellcat of the Eduard Dual Combo in 1/72. In the colours of the Argentinian pilot Oscar Lorenzo Sundt.
  4. Encore Models has just released a 1/48th Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat kit (plastic from Eduard) - ref. EC48007 Sources: http://www.squadron.com/Encore-Models-1-48-F6F-5-Hellcat-EC48007-p/ec48007.htm http://community.squadron.com/new-arrivals/the-cat-is-out-of-the-bag/?utm_source=bm23&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Map2&utm_content=Introducing+the+Next+Encore+Models+Release+-+The+F6F-5+Hellcat&utm_campaign=April+New+Products V.P.
  5. Here’s my latest completion, Otaki’s aging F6F Hellcat kit in1/48. The subject is one of the first Hellcats that went to 800 Sqn FAA, HMS Emperor, and participated in the Royal Navy strikes against the Tirpitz, while she was anchored in Norway. This Hellcat accounted for 3 FW-190’s. The Otaki kits were great in their day, and still serve as a good basis for detailing and scratchbuilding. – Detailed gunsight, True details cockpit, scratchbuilt rear bulkhead and armour plate based on photos, replaced machinegun barrels, and exhaust with aluminum and brass tubing. – Canopy is Squadron va
  6. Here's what I hope to build: It's the Profipack boxing of Eduard's F6F-3 Hellcat. By all accounts it is an excellent kit and those I know of who have built it have been very positive about it so I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes for me. I also have the F6F-5 Profipack as well so if this one goes according to plan I might sneak a second build in before mid-July Here are the box contents; instructions and transfers: ... the sprues: ... and the clear parts, etched frets and mask s
  7. Good afternoon, gentlemen! Let me present you my next model.
  8. Hey guys, after quite long time i m back here with some WIP thread I found out, i have problems with time-limited builds, with my inconsistent time for modelling So it is hard for me to follow the group builds here on BM, as much as i love to be part of these ( But.. the irony of fate strikes again and i want to build something as a bday gift for my soon-brother in law as he is big fan of WW2 airplanes.. which is, obviously, nothing less than time limited build.. again.. I would have enough time (1-2months), but still i wanted to chose some nice kit, so i chosed one of the Eduard´s gem
  9. Hey guys, one week ago i have finished this kit (built as a birthday gift), but i did not have time to create the RFI till now For anyone interested, some quick WIP is here http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235002039-f6f-hellcat-148-eduard/(i was rushing to finish the kit in time so i did not take that many shots during the build). The kit is totaly great and amazing, well recommended to everyone interested in building the Hellcat in 1/48! I have added some details here and there, mostly scratched (tank infront of cockpit, reworkded cockpit, opened and reshaped flaps)
  10. Hey guys, i would like to show you my last finished kit - this time it was just OOB quick build of the Eduard´s overtrees version of F6F Hellcat. The decals are from spare box. I did not make propper WIP here on BM as it was quite fast build, but for those interested in few shots of the painting progress, here it is http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234984891-f6f-3-hellcat-just-the-paintingweathering-stage/ As i said, the hellcat was built mostly OOB, i only made new exhausts and gun barrels from needles and new position lights from clear plastic. And here are few shots
  11. Turned Hellcat Machine Gun Barrels 1:48/1:32 Master As if it wasn’t enough producing new sets for barrels in 1:350 and pitot probes in 1:48 Master Models have also released a raft of barrel sets for the Grumman Hellcats in both 1:48 and 1:32 scales. The sets are marked F6F Early, so I presume a -3, F6F Late, presumably a -5 and F6F Night Fighter. It’s quite interesting seeing the different styles of barrels used for each of these marks. As is the norm, the kit barrels will need to be cut off and a small hole drilled into the wing to accept the new brass barrels. All have a drilled out muz
