  1. In 2021 Hobby Boss is to release 1/48th CH-47 Chinook kits. - ref. 81772 - Boeing CH-47A Chinook - ref. 81773 - Boeing CH-47D Chinook More variants to follow? Most probably. To be followed. Source: http://www.moxingfans.com/m/view.php?aid=7201&pageno=1 V.P.
  2. LKW 7t MIL GL Truck LARS2 Hobbyboss 1:35 (85521) In the 1960s the Bundeswher was looking to replace its fleet of vehicles which stemmed from the birth of the modern German Army. They wanted a fleet of 2, 3 & 4 axle vehicles in the 4 to 10 tonne payload range which had to be amphibious. As it was a large task it was suggested that bidding companies form a common development company for a unified project. This was set up under the leadership of MAN and included Klockner-Humboldt-Deutz, Bussins, Krup, and Henschel. The specification agreed was for a cross country
  3. Hi all, Since I built my Defiant I’m now on a turret roll, so I’m going to drag myself kicking & screaming from my OOB comfort zone and attempt to build Hobby Boss’ “British Fleet Air Arm Avenger MkI” as an FAA Tarpon. From what I can tell, Hobby Boss have taken their “standard” US Avenger kit, sourced a new set of decals, made up a couple of paint schemes and issued it as an FAA version. All of the shortcomings and errors of this version of the kit have been well documented – thanks to @tonyot, @85sqn, @trickyrich and others for easing my journey of discovery with their excellent and
  4. That's South East Asian, most Skyhawks were seaworthy out of the crate From wikipedia: Due to the declining relationship between Indonesia and the Soviet Union, there was a lack of spare parts for military hardware supplied by the Communist Bloc. Soon, most of them were scrapped. The Indonesian Air Force (TNI-AU) acquired A-4 Skyhawks to replace its Il-28 Beagles and Tu-16 Badgers in a covert operation with Israel... The A-4 served the Indonesian Air Force from 1982 until 2003. Take one Hobbyboss 1/48 A-4E, add in some Airies resin for the Israeli extended exhaust and
  5. This was my first Hobby Boss kit. I started it in earnest in the fall of 2012 and hit the first “snag” soon after. I had to repaint the seat several times to get the effect I wanted and stopped construction for several weeks. Then I took up the gauntlet again. The plastic in this kit was sort of odd; in some places it seems quite soft but it also seemed very brittle at times too. I broke several parts just removing them from sprues, and this sure wasn’t my first rodeo. The fore and aft sections of the fuselage presented the next challenge. There was a terrible fit between the two sections. A
  6. Hello all. Another one completed this weekend, the Hobbyboss 1/72 F-14A Tomcat. A pretty straightforward build OOB. It may be a little oversimplified in places compared to say Hasegawa or GWH but simple suits me fine as it means i can crack on with the next model! Painted with Xtracrylix and then W&N Galleria Matt varnish to finish. Had a disaster at the final hurdle with the canopy as it cracked right down the centre while trying to clean some paint off, so i replaced it with a Pavla vacform one (i hate cutting vac canopies and can never s
  7. HobbyBoss is to release a 1/48th Lavoshkin La-11 "Fang" kit in 2016-2017 - ref.81760 Source: https://www.facebook.com/TrumpeterModel/photos/a.103538733138062.8169.103526326472636/537476479744283/?type=3&theater V.P.
  8. Hi folk's, I thought it only right as I'm building an Aussie Beaufighter to pay tribute to New Zealand with an entry. I have a set of mint decals from a past Frog build for the Corsair so as I was ordering something from KK I popped Hobbyboss easy kit on too it's only a fiver and is actually a great little kit.Photos ASAP.
  9. LvKv 90C Anti-Air Vehicle (84508) 1:35 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd Based upon the original Combat Vehicle 90 (CV90), this anti-aircraft light tank uses the same chassis with a 40mm Bofors autocannon in a new turret, which is guided by a Thales radar unit perched on top of the turret in a cylindrical housing. LvKv stands for Luftvärnskanonvagn, which translates to self-propelled anti-aircraft weapon, with the 90 representing the decade of its birth. It can fire programmable proximity-fused fragmentation or armour piercing rounds, which coupled with the com
  10. After completing my Tamiya Spitfire Mk.V tropical and with a view to continue getting me “back up to speed” on the modelling front I’ve delved into the stash and decided on this… HobbyBoss 1:48 Brazilian EMB-314 Super Tucano Having watched a YouTube video by Becker’s Models on his build… https: //www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMJsGOZ3fTI I decided to get the resin pilots he used, I don’t think I’ll be doing her “wheels up” but I liked stuffing a pilot in the Spitfire and as HobbyBoss don’t supply any I’ve order these KASL Hobby figures…
  11. I've been working on some fairly challenging (well for me) limited run aircraft kits and happened to see this kit going very cheap (A$ 10) at a local hobby shop while looking for some paint. I figured it might be a good fun quick build while working my way through the tediousness of masking and painting canopies for my Hampden. Not much to it. Straight forward instructions. So a straightforward quick build right out of the box. First a bit of weight in the bottom of the hull.
  12. Hi gang, here is my first finish of 2021, it's the Hobbyboss 1/72 TA-7C finished as the prototype in overall gloss white (courtesy of a rattle can from Halfords). The only after market bits apart from the decals are the ejector seat handles which you can't actually see in the pics. The kit fell together, I finished it with a light wash and it's displayed on a chopping board from ebay with a Corsair sticker also from ebay. Looking forward to building more to use up the after market decal sheet. SLUF#1 by tony_inkster, on Flickr SLUF#2 by tony_inkster, on Flic
  13. Hi all, Just completed this Hobbyboss sd kfz 222 - built OOB. Nicely detailed interior which is completely wasted if you close the vehicle up, as I did . Lightly weathered with some oils and pigments, but that's about it. I haven't built much armour, but am keen to understand where I could improve, so don't hold back
  14. I'm going to build the hobbyboss A-6E intruder, I'll be building it a a tram version that took part in operation desert storm with the tan and sand scheme, I've got 2 aires gruea-7 seats and eduard A-6E tram interior, and the A-6E tram exterior kit and masks the decals are by hi decal line, not sure how I'll have the wings as yet, Glynn

  18. Hello, Here goes another little bird in 72nd F-5E Tiger II Adversary - VFC-13 Fighting Saints Fighter Squadron Composite (VFC-13) Saints is a US Navy fighter squadron that provides adversary training for U.S. Navy air wings at NAS Fallon, Nevada. The unit's mix of 23 F-5E, F-5F and F-5N aircraft are all painted in a variety of colorful adversary schemes of blue, gray, or brown camouflage.

  19. Greetings all, This rather large box somehow appeared on my doorstep this week - how these things happen I shall never understand... I love the 8th Air Force and the B-17 and B-24 in particular, so decided to have a go at the recent HobbyBoss release of the B-24, or the 'crate the B-17 was delivered in' if you spoke a B-17 crew. Not very fair really, especially when you consider it could fly farther, faster and with a greater bombload than the Fort. The kit looks fairly simple in places as has been discussed at length elsewhere, but that's just what I'm after at the mom
  20. Seeing as most of you are building stuff from the coalition I thought I would give you all something to shoot at or drop things on. I need this to be a fairly quick build due to other GB commitments so that means 1/72 scale and that drastically reduces my list of possibilities, no bad thing as it helps with focusing the mind. I ended up going for a HobbyBoss Mi-24 Hind D which I have had for a while. Now while this isn't as accurate as the Zvezda kit (hasn't got the anti-torque kink to the fuselage after the cockpit, just like all the other Hind kits) it looks good, has decent detailing, comes
  21. Another lynx, this time a Hobbyboss kit. This one will be a normal HAS.2, with a twist that will come apparent in the a couple days. As with all my recent lynx, I have detailed the interior a little bit. I made milliput soundproofing along with some detail to the seats. I kept the Cyclic (No collective in this kit) away from the observers position and tried adding something of a radar screen to the console, and some overhead console. I used some evergreen strips to try and make the door rails a bit larger like the actual lynx, although i could make them a bit thicker. O
  22. Hello to all of you.Here is one model I built OOB.It is a nice model to work on.I used tamiya paints and caracal model decals for the markings. Regards,Dragan

  24. As this one will not meet today's deadline, I'm going to keep working on it in this group build. The main airframe is at the decalling stage but weapons need painting, the rear cockpit displays need to be built (this particular aircraft was a dual control model) and the geometry of the main undercarriage legs needs some thought.
