  1. Following on from the 1/48 A-12 and YF-12A builds i did last year i have a new commission. This project was also to have been in 1/48 but a lack of available resin conversion parts meant that we swapped over to 1/72 scale. The plan is to build 4 airframes as follows. A-12 Oxcart using the stock 1/72 Italeri Kit with Kiwi Resin Conversion. M-21 with Drone, unlike the kit offerings out there this will be properly represented on the two seat A-12 not the SR-71 using the Kiwi Resin Conversion set and the stock Italeri kit. YF-12A Interceptor using the stock 1/72 Italeri Kit. SR-71 using the stoc

Well here she is all complete, i may remove the RBF tags from the cockpit but other that that i am happy enough. No more text just a few pictures, i hope you enjoy.
  3. Finished a while back now but forgot to post it, i had to scratch build the intake tubes as there were none, if i was going to go through all this resin effort then that would have to change. Made the mistake of using Hannants Xtracrylic, forever unblocking my brush, never again. Lightly covered in a filter of Tamiya Smoke then Grey filters applied on the panels, not to much as it seemed from my research these schemes did not last long before being painted over. Build took the best part of 3 months and after many hours she was done, no text just a few pictures. I hope you all enjoy. " I was g
  4. Well guys I am calling these four done, just over 9 weeks from start to finish and I have to say this is one commission I wish I could keep. Each airframe has been based on a specific image/images as per my customer¡¦s requirements, we must have exchanged a few dozen emails since then ironing out specifics. All four are based on the standard 1/72 SR-71 and YF-12A kits with the addition of various Eduard etch detail, Wolfpack Seats and the Kiwi Resin Conversion Sets for the A-12 and M-21. Hope you all enjoyed the WIP reports. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234957317-a-12-
  5. Hi all this is my latest build and for once it is for me, just over 2 weeks work This is the 1/48 Hobby Boss YF-23, the only extras for it are the Caracal Decals, these are essential as the kit ones are total nonsense and an Aires resin Ejection Seat. The kit itself went together perfectly, really quite impressed, the join between the two halves of the fuselage was perfect, just the smallest application of liquid filler and that was it. For a 1/48 kit she is huge, not 100% sure of Hobby Boss scaling here but I like big. (430mm/17” long) The cockpit is nicely done and is a good likeness for
  6. This was just meant to be a quick stash reduction job before restarting the Blackbird commission and the last 3 airframes. I will kick that off again on the 1st of July, up until then I will see how much more of this I can get done. Swift Protar 1/9 Ducati 748SP Revell 1/9 Ducati 916SP x2 kits Revell 1/9 Ducati 996 Superbike All 3 bikes are based around the origonal Ducati 916SP, there are various versions of this bike but I will specifically cover the 748, 916 and 996 World Superbike version. All these bikes are basically the same, they just vary in bore and stroke, the 748 has smaller rear
  7. Well this is my latest build completed, another commission and a very challenging one at that. This is the Stargazer Models 1/144 scale Discovery 1 from 2001/2010, the kit has a total length of 30"+. One of the biggest challenges was making the modifications for the bespoke lighting rig as there are no resin spares so I could not afford to make any mistakes. I was not going to light the engine bells as I thought it was too risky but I gave it a great deal of thought and took the chance. Back to year one apprentice bench fitting and my trusty Tamiya razor saw. The lighting in the Command Modu
  8. 1/32 Trumpeter Mig-29K Well it has been a long time coming but she is done, I started this last summer but with commission work coming in at a steady rate I did not manage to get allot done. I finally got stuck back in to it a couple of weeks ago. The only additional parts for the kit where the Aires burners, very nice they are too. Not entirely sure if the internal depth of the flame holder is correct but much better than the standard kit ones. I did buy an AIRES quick boost seat but it is too wide for the kit tub and not just by a little bit. I also added a set of intake covers and burner
  9. The next leg of my Blackbird commission has been completed with the addition of the two Training aircraft SR-71B and A-12 "Titanium Goose". This is the build thread. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234961256-titanium-twins-sr-71b-and-a-12-titanium-goose-wip/ Titanium Twins Completed.(SR-71B Trainer and A-12 Trainer "Titanium Goose") Thanks for looking. Danny.
  10. With the completion of the first part of the project I have moved on to the SR-71B and the A-12 Trainer the Titanium Goose. I will only do a couple of WIP's for this as it will mainly be focused on the A-12 Goose, the SR-71B will be a lot of repetition of the previous birds already completed. The Titanium Goose A-12 Trainer 2nd cockpit is quite a bit different to how the SR-71B looks so I needed to scratch build a second canopy. This is the SR-71B, note profile of the 2nd cockpit, it is much slimmer and blends in with the lines of the airframe. The angle from the rear cockpit is quite shallo
  11. When i first started modelling back in 2003 theese where my 1st builds, i am particularly proud of the Whitestar, this was done with Tamiya Acrylic and automotive metallics. I could have gone for the aftermarket decals but that felt like cheating. Need to get em dusted. Regards Danny Attree
  12. I have had to take a small pause from my current project to undertake a small commision, dont get to many but this one i really did enjoy. A great little kit with amazing detail. Honda ST-70 Dax, 1:6 scale. Regards Danny
  13. 1/350 Polar Lights Re Fit Enterprise. I started this commission back on the 12th November, and it was finally finished yesterday. It is a beautiful kit but a real pig to build if you are going to light it, 90% of the lighting is bespoke with a small PCB for the flashing lights and the deflector array. The kit was sprayed with Tamiya Pearl White with Tamiya Pearl Lacquer on top, the original studio version was pearlescent white. I decided to try and replicate this, it was not the easiest way to do it but the end result was well worth it. The base was a saga on its own, seemed to take forever t
  14. Well after just about a week she is done, although not quite as detailed as the 1/12 Tamiya kits straight out the box I have to say that as the build went along I became more impressed with the quality. I certainly will be adding a few more of these 1/9 Revell kits to the collection, decals were a challenge, I was expecting this but lots of patience and Microset/sol got the job done. This is the WIP, http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234955110-19-honda-rc-211v-revell-wip/ Model finished in the late Daijiro Kato scheme. Thanks for looking Danny
  15. This was my 1st completed build of 2013, what a great kit, the finish was a challenge but it was good practice for my upcoming 1/32 Academy F-16I SUFA. 1/32 Academy Block 42 F-16C Arctic Aggressor. After seeing the Tamiya version of this in 1/48 I knew I would really like to do the same on a larger scale. This however would not turn out to be as straight forward as I thought, surprise surprise. 1st of all the admissions that should save any holes being blown in her. The 1st obstacle was the choice of kit, I did some research on F-16.net and found that the Tamiya 1/32 F-16 Thunderbirds woul
  16. Next up, i think i need to get these cleaned up and transfered to the dustproof cabinet, bummer. Regards Danny Attree

  18. This was another commission and my first complete build for 2014, I was asked to restrict the weathering to represent a relatively new a/c. I had heard allot about this kit and I have to say for such a small scale the detail is stunning and it was a real pleasure to build, a very well thought out kit. This is also being picked up today.

  19. 1/32 Tamiya F-15E Strike Eagle. Additional parts Squadron Signal F-15 Eagle Walkaround, a real waste of time, most pictures are in black and white, about as useful as a chocolate fire guard. Wolfpack Design, AN/AAQ-33 Sniper XR Pod. Quickboost/Aires Seats. Eduard Ejection Seat detail set. N:B, The Aires seats do not come with the ejector seat guide rails so the original ones from the Tamiya parts have to cut off and glued in place, the Eduard set makes up for the missing seat placards, warning signs and ejection handles. I had waited quite a while until I built this kit with the hope I woul
  20. Up until now I have always made the 1/12 Tamiya kits, the main reason being they are well designed and very detailed. I have seen a few other scales but I knew the detail was not in the same league and the accuracy on some was grim to say the least. However I really did fancy a larger scale kit so I snagged a few on eBay and took a chance, the following is the 1st. As always I started with the engine, the detail is less specific and where there were a number of different parts in the Tamiya kit they tend to just be one larger moulding in this kit. Still very good detail but just a bit trickie
  21. Well after the best part of 6 weeks my 1/350 Polar Lights Enterprise kit from the original series is complete. This is a Commission and built OOB with the Polar Lights Weathering and Lighting Set. Kit mechanics went together very well with the exclusion of the lighted shuttle bay, lots of time and effort spent here, not very easy at all. The lighting kit itself on paper seems a really simple and well thought out package but in reality it is let down by the push fit LED strip fittings. One minute they work the next they dont, the contact points are very light and you have to be oh so careful
  22. Well i have stepped away from my usual 1/32 comfort zone and delving into the smaller scale of 1/48 , specifically the 1/48 Testors YF-12A I bought this kit about 6 years ago and it was pretty rare then but you can not accurately turn the standard SR-71 into a YF-12A, there are too many differences in contour and shape in the forward fuselage section alone. I have to admit this it was with some reservation I broke the sealing film on the box as there is no way back then. I could hear the collectors cries from my study, I calmed myself with the knowledge I buy models to build not to horde in
  23. This is my latest commission, its a 1969 1/48 Monogram Typhoon. The last propeller model I made was when I was 14 years old and 1/48 scale is a tad small for me With a kit this age I was expecting trouble but I have to say the fit quality was superb with little or no filler required. As expected the surface detail was very limited but not bad all considering. Of course in the process of finishing this I have seen the New Airfix Typhoon and I have to say there could well be another prop in the future. I have a few days now before the next commission so I can jump back on my longstanding Trum
  24. This posting brings me up to date, i did it directly after the YF-12A, it was finished last week. Well after just over two weeks pretty solid work she is now done, got to say I am happy with the result. Model is sprayed with Tamiya acrylics the same as the YF-12A. I have another one on the shelf but that will be built as the standard SR-71, I do not think I have it in me to build 3 on trot, another year I think :-) There have been some real challenges along the way especially with the assembly and finish of the resin, but I cannot grumble about that, patience, hot water and plenty of Tea.

  25. AMT, U.S.S. Defiant Just as the 1/32 Trumpeter Mig-29K Fulcrum was coming along nicely untill a commission dropped in my lap, not that I moan. I have done a fair bit of Si-Fi over the years but never a Star Trek kit. The lighting rig is bespoke and took a bit of tinkering, it is a mixture of LEDs and Fibre Optics all based around a 12v DC Supply. The less said about the kit the better as I think it is by far the worst I have come across and took allot of time and effort to get it looking like this. The stand is ok but I chose to change it as little as I knew over time it would drop with th
