  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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. Mike
  4. 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.
  5. Hello Friends, This is a Build of the HobbyBoss Sukhoi-30 MKK in 1:48 size. I build this kit into a Su-30MKI in service with the Indian Air Force. The build is OOB with required additions or modifications. The mods include : 1. Making the LERX - Leading Edge Extensions alongwith the canards. I make this using plastic card and epoxy putty. Once the putty dried I sanded the thing to shape. The panel lines were rescribed with reference to the line drawings which are available on the internet. 2. I modify the tails as the ones used by the MKI are diff
  6. Dear Colleagues Enclosed is my last model of 2020. A year when society actually encouraged us to stay indoors and get down to serious modelling, not that we needed much persuading. In truth the BA-10 was more of an armoured lorry than fully functioning armoured car. A modest 50 HP was powering two rear axles only. On the plus side this was probably the most powerfully armed armoured car of the period and ran on solid tyres. The few that survived Operation Barbarossa probably had their small moment of glory in the November winter counter offensive in front of Moscow.
  7. My last work for 2020/ My goal was to do a Heller nose transplant on the Hobbyboss fuselage. Finally no real problem, everything fits easily. Here are the pics : The base real plane : the kit : one big issue anyway : the canopy...i had to vacuform another one, and i made many many tries before succeding... enjoy.
  8. In 2020-2021, HobbyBoss is to release 1/72nd Grumman F8F Bearcat kits. - ref. 87267 - Grumman F8F-1 Bearcat - ref. 87268 - Grumman F8F-1BBearcat - ref. 87269 - Grumman F8F-2 Bearcat V.P.
  9. So hopefully this will be a fairly short KUTA build. I originally started it back in the "Journey's End" GB - build thread can be found here. Since it's last outing the window masks went on and it got a coat of Alclad II Black Primer (or maybe it was Vallejo, it's a long time since I did it). At that point she was left to gather dust for some time. So after rescue it's been given a coat of Alclad II Gloss Black Base, but unfortunately this didn't come out as expected... As can hopefully be seen - there's a lot of texturing, now I'm not entirely sure

  11. Season's greetings all This is my take on Johannes Steinhoff's Me 262 'white 6', while he was flying with JV 44 at Munchen-Riem towards the end of the war. In April 1945, his aircraft hit a badly-repaired bomb crater on take-off, which damaged his main gear and threw the aircraft off line. In his own words, his aircraft was going 'too slow to get airborne and too fast to abort' and he received severe burns in the subsequent crash, which put him out of the war and in hospital for some time afterwards. He recovered eventually to play a leading role in the new Luftwaffe, as well a
  12. While some of my other builds are at the fragile stage to be transported when I go to my local model club meet on a thursday night to still keep me busy I had started on this one but I will still be concentrating on getting the other two completed first. So here we have my first Hobby Boss kit and my first pre-Dreadnought HMS Lord Nelson and as some of you may know I try to keep to ships built in the area of my home town and this one fits the bill of being built on the river Tyne at Jarrow This is how far I have got after a couple of sessions at the club this will be mostly ou
  13. Hello to all of you.This will be my last finished model for the year 2020.I made new seatbelts,gunsight and pittotube for this one.The paints I used are ak real colors and the decals are from Hi Decal Line.If you wish to see the full build process follow the youtube link bellow. Happy holidays to all of you and stay safe.
  14. Hi guys, I finally finished this build. It's HobbyBoss Panzer I Ausf. A, kit No. 80145, superb kit, with great details and quite well engineered. There were few frustrating bits, like super small photo-etched parts (and when I say super small, I mean SUPER small), quite a lot of cleanup of indy track links, but it's worth the fun. You can find more about this build in the WIP section here. I decided to build DAK version, Vehicle number 833 from the Regiment 5, the one of vehicles that arrived with the first batch of DAK units and that participated in the first actions until it
  15. My entry will be ZE967, a Tornado F3 of 23 Squadron, based at RAF Leeming. This Hobbyboss kit was purchased at least five years ago and it's time it was built: The Xtradecal sheet covers this airframe, Mosquito FB Mk VI (Mediterranean Theatre GB), Lightning F6 (Interceptor GB?) and two Phantoms (RAF Leeming and Falkland Islands) - the latter are part of my own KUTA build. The Tornado won't get started for a couple of weeks at least as I'm also building two Phantoms for the Vietnam GB.
  16. Hi all You wait ages for a D-13, then two turn up at the same time This is my attempt at D-13 '>>' - photographed at Pilsen, Czechoslovakia at the end of the war, unservicable, partially stripped and (I believe) with the engine/power egg removed. There are two (possibly three) recorded D-13s, one is 'Yellow 10' and this is the other one. There is also a pic of a burnt-out wreck which was identified as a D-13, but doesn't really give much away. Considering that 'Yellow 10' and '>>' had consecutive W.Nrs (836016 and 836017), the differences in finish ar
  17. Hi I started this kit way back in 2018 but Mojo loss helped stall this build for a long time but I have been finishing some stalled builds this year and got the Mojo back for this one. The Kit needed to be modified due to the fuselage spine being too rounded and a wanted add for some canopy bits and some kind gestures by @Nick Belbin and @fightersweepre canopy parts and a generous trade with @trickydicky210 netted a Revell MkII for donor parts. Thank you guys. I also need to thank you guys on the questions about Spitfires thread especially @303sqn who provided some cr
  18. Well, it’s time I started to write up where I’ve got to with my first Tomcat build having spent the last few weeks pre lockdown, and the most of the time since lockdown, gathering information, drooling over others’ work and finally (I wish I had one)... set about and went and bought some. Intial (re) inspiration was an Airfix world mag article (Nov 2019) describing building the Finemolds F-14A as a Sundowners bird (was always my favourite) and it reminded me of when I’d made my last F-14A in “about” 1986 when I’d used some xtradecals to present the Hasegawa kit as a low viz sundowner. It suffe
  19. Hello all, Here is my first entry for this Group Build - 1/48 Hobbyboss A-6A Intruder, marked as BuNo 151585 of VA-75 in late 1965. This is a model I've been wanting to build for a while having seen many Intruders in museums across the USA and also having watched 'Flight of the Intruder' more times than I care to remember! Kit: Aftermarket: Will be using Hypersonic Models ejection seats, Eduard interior etch, New Ware masks and fantastic looking Furball 'Iron Tadpoles' decal sheet. A close up of the latter and sche
  20. HMS Agamemnon 1:350 Hobbyboss History HMS Agamemnon was the pride of the British Royal Navy and the last of her pre-dreadnought battleships produced. Because she was of a "bridge" design between the ironclad vessels of old and dreadnought ships to come, her design and her fate were already established before she was ever launched. Coming along just after the turn of the century, she survived long enough to see action in World War 1 (1914-1918) but very little beyond that. HMS Agamemnon was of a dying breed of ship, though a capable design she was, perhaps appearing t
  21. Leopard 1A5 MBT (84501) 1/35 HOBBYBOSS via Creative Models The Leopard project started back in the mid 1950s with the goal of producing a modern tank to replace the M47 and M48 tanks which where then in use by the recently reconstituted Bundesehr (German Army). The specification called for a tank weighing no more than 30 tonnes capable of surviving 20mm rapid fire cannon and having a power-to-weight ratio of 30hp per tonne. The tank had to be capable of surviving on a nuclear/chemical contaminated battlefield. Armament was to be the then standard NATO 105mm gun. For this
  22. Hobby Boss is to release in late January 2020 a 1/18th Messerschmitt Me.262 Schwalbe kit - ref. 81805 Source: http://www.hobbyboss.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=151&l=en V.P.
  23. I bought the Collect-Aire resin YF-23 when it came out, I think in 2002. Big price, big box and some big hunks of resin, it was awesome. Although well designed and molded it did require extra skills and I was fairly new to resin, I think at that point I had made a handful of resin kits including Collect-Aire's MiG-19, which was fairly straightforward. For those who never built any kits by this company the detail and quality differed substantially. Their YF-23 was good however, good cockpit, decent shape, metal gear, rubbish missiles and wheels and a good attempt on the decal sheet (it had dec
  24. I finally got a proper work station to build models on and I started with two easy kits, HobbyBoss 1:72 Soviet Tu-2 and HobbyBoss 1:72 Soviet Yak-3, I have to say having a place to work on models without having to bend over double makes for a much more enjoyable build. I was also able to paint my Henschel HS-129B, I decided to give it a tropical paint scheme using Humbrol Matt 63 as the top cover with Humbrol Matt 117 for the cammo patches. I used Humbrol Matt 23 for the underside. For the first model I've completely finished in quite some time, I didn't make a total balls-up.
  25. Hello all. My first 'desert' themed build - a HobbyBoss 1/48 Bf109F-4 in North Africa trim. I added a spare tropical filter from a Hasegawa kit, which needed some minor mods to fit, but nothing serious. Good fun kit to build (this is the second one I've done) everything goes together well apart from the canopy, which needs a bit of work to fit flush (mine still doesn't). The undercarriage doors are also ridiculously flimsy - I accidentally broke one in half, but it repaired ok. Painted to represent 'Schwarz 2' flown by Uffz. Hans Neiderhofer of 5/JG27 based at Martuba, Libya, 1942. Decal
