  1. Hello all Today I would like to present one of my older models, the DUKW from Italeri. I tried to simulate beach dust and OD faded by salt water. Unfortunately, details like the dashboard are (still) missing (decals got lost) and some things are not correct like the slits in the side rails. These things I will improve in the future, because I got the Tankograd 6003 Technical Manual for christmas I also got a second kit from Airfix - two are better than one Have fun! MD
  2. Hi everybody, back to a propeller build and in 1/48, after a few jets in 1/72. At the beginning of WWII, the Regia Aeronautica acquired a number of JU 87 B-2 to equip its dive bomber wings; these were nicknamed "picchiatelli" (plural, the singular is "picchiatello") by the Italian pilots, referring to its role (dive bomber in Italian translates into "bombardiere in picchiata") but also to the fact that "picchiatello" means "slightly mad", 'cause you had to be like that for the job ... . I'll provide more info as I go, meanwhile here's the boxart the doc
  3. I find myself in a bit of a quandary. When I started this GB I intended to build 3 planes, but have so far finished 5 with 2 more at the painting stage and there sre still almost 2 months left before the GB ends! Normally that would not be a problem as I would be involved in at least 2 and sometimes even 3 GB simultaneously but there is something of an hiatus at the moment - I will start one plane in the Gulf GB at the weekend and another in the Africa GB next month but the lockdown means I am building more quickly than usual, and so whilst I am waiting to do a bit of airbrushing, and then fo
  4. So ,,, with my Zvezda Panther on long-term pause: ... I decided on Friday evening (yes, two nights ago!), that it would be wrong to to not complete a kit for this GB. To cut a long story short. I chose the Italeri Jagdpanther. I never got this ESCI original back in the day: Of course, back in the day, this would have had single-piece flexible tracks. The Italeri boxing is of the ESCI/ERTL version, with "upgraded" hard tracks: As time was of the essence, the tasks had to be done in the optimum order. So first up, paint the wheels Dunkelgelb 43, and then
  5. So the Christmas of 2020 was a little of a strange one, and the most of the year was no better. Constant home schooling and only essential shops being open. For most of us it was a good time to get plenty of bench time, and make out ways down the pile of kits in the stash. for me? It was a time to start fresh, go back to the basics of modelling, learn new techniques and above all come back to Britmodeller. For Christmas I asked the wife for just one thing, as the title suggests, yes a big tornado. For many years I have wanted to build a large scale tornado, and have all the
  6. Hello to all of you.I present you my latest finished model.I hope you like it. https://youtu.be/2taa1w4awNE
  7. Been a while since I posted here, hah. Completed this a little while ago (and it unfortunately accumulated a little bit of dust). Built OOB with a bit of additional wiring detail on the exhaust, some reflective film from an AFVClub tank periscope set, and some aftermarket decals and masking. Base used some Brengun tie down PE. Thanks for looking, Gaz
  8. Hello! This is my first gallery in this forum. To the MC.205 Veltro 1:48 Italeria I added a few additives in the form of resins and plates. I also used paints dedicated to Italian aviation from bilmodels company, so far these are the best paints I have had a chance to work with. As always with valorization, not everything fits perfectly, there were a few places where I had to think a little bit how to put it together. In summary, the construction went smoothly. Below are pictures of the finished model. Maybe somebody will like my sweats.
  9. An MTO GB without a Savoia-Marchetti 79? Don't think so! We must give all those Spits and P-40s something to shoot at, right? Anyways: had my eye on this one for a while and this GB fits nicely. Got some extras for it: I predict some cutting and splicing is going to take place... As the title says, this one will be the Panterellia based 278 Squadriglia one: Here's the original, seen on Panterellia. The fortress like structure was built against one of the hill slopes on the airfield.
  10. Hello everyone, at the end of the year, the work on the completion of the started projects is accelerating. Aside from the Hobby Boss standing in my stash as ultimate mold for A7 in 1/72, I couldn’t help myself, and must finish (if nothing else the one for sentimental reasons) this “old man”. With all the "inaccuracies" and sometimes poor fit, this is one of my favorite ESCI / Italeri molds. Additionally some details added in cockpit, resin pilot seat..etc, and more complicated task to make full length intake from the polystyrene sheet, it turned out a little awkward, but still
  11. Hello everyone, I'm new here and my English is poor. In order not to bore me, I start with a workshop. This is not my first model, I have already built a few. I like Italian machines very much. Model MC.205 "Veltro" in 1:48 scale with a few accessories.
  12. I seem to have been trying to build most things that the RAF painted grey & green and there is a kit of in 1/48 scale (and one I scratch built). Now I thought the Canberra PR.9 was going to be the biggest until I saw that an old version of the Italeri Herc was an H / K version with RAF markings for XV200. Now the engines are wrong - too short. So these got moved forward with a plug section behind. Not the resin solution so not perfect, but good enough for me. And the kit is for a grey underside paint scheme. So of course I wanted wrap around camo & a refuelling probe. And the ki
  13. I've made a start on a new model which will be something I never really do - a diorama of sorts but really it's two model aircraft. I've had to depart from my preferred 1/48 scale for this for various reasons but let's simplify it down to kit availability. The ultimate aim is to try to recreate a scene like this: I expect the readership is well familiar with the USAF's Combat Search And Rescue (CSAR) efforts which really came to maturity during the Vietnam war. The Sikorsky S-61R model in USAF service as the CH-3 was modified with long range tanks, refuelling prob
  14. One of the two Sea Harrier models I managed to finish this week - 1/72 Italeri (ex-ESCI) BAe Sea Harrier FRS.1 ZA177 "77" of 800. Naval Air Squadron, HMS Hermes Air Group, Falkland Islands, June 1982. Old ESCI kit is simple and needs some work, but it's quite accurate. I`ve used Eduard PE set (poor), Pavla resin air intakes (awful) and exhaust nozzles (awful), Pavla resin gunpods (even more awful and innaccurate), Pavla resin MB.10H ejection seat (poor), Airfix AIM-9Ls (good after some work), Master Pitot tube (nice) and DP Casper/Xtradecal/Airfix decals. Painted with Gunze Mr.Colo
  15. Hi there I got a bit carried away and started this before I took some pictures. The Fantasy Printshop decals will be used to make this Starfighter a bit different. Regards Toby
  16. It may be strange, but in my "Falklands War model collection" Sea Harrier is still missing! That's why I decided to make two at once. To make it more interesting, they will be models from two different manufacturers - Airfix and Italeri. They are most popular kits of SHAR in 1/72 scale on the market (so far) and are well known, but I`ll try to compare them on this occasion. Airfix kit is from 2011, meanwhile, the Italeri is a rebox of the old ESCI kit, which comes from 1983! It would be logical if Airfix was better, but as you know - it is not. So let`s see both kits.
  17. I hope so - because in contrary to what I said earlier - it seems that I still have to do a Phantom in addition to a MiG for this GB Oh boy, why I always do this... Italeri F-4 Phantom is the subject, Esci moulding from 1982. World has seen better Phantoms since for sure (not that I have done much research on them but I'm guessing) - but I've always had a soft spot for Italeri/Esci kits. Let's see what this kit includes: Some instructions and nice big decal sheet by Cartograph. Clear parts. Look pretty clear to me.
  18. My entry for this group build, the Martin B-57B Canberra operated by the 8th Bomb Squadron out of Bien Hoa AB and then Da Nang AB in 1964/65. It didn't take the Canberra long to become well-known on the tactical scene and they picked up the call sign 'Yellow Bird' based upon the squadron colours (the sister13th BS were 'Red Bird'). I am building the 1/72nd Italeri B-57B Canberra OOB and it will be finished in aluminium. I will be using the decals from the kit. I will also 'ghost' build a second B-57B which will be in the later SEA camouflage scheme coded as 'PQ'. I am looking for a straight f
  19. I have always wanted to make a spitfire with Israeli marks. Although the old Italeri model, I still like it today. By the way, this year is the 19th completed model. Here's the picture.
  20. As follow on to the 2019 thread. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235050263-italeri-2019-catalog-new-reissue-repop-rebox-etc-in-2019/ The Italeri 2020 catalog should be available in late January. Wait and see. Announced in January 2019 and expected in January 2020 is a re-edition from the Fujimi 1/72nd North American F-86F Sabre "MiG Killer" + Super Decal - ref. 1426 Source: https://nowosci.plastikowe.pl/aktualnosci/zapowiedzi-italeri-grudzien-2019/ Box art V.P.
  21. Next cab of the KUTA rank is a C-130J to be finished as a RAAF machine. I started with an AC-130H kit and stretch it and filled the 'AC' specific holes. This was an original AMT mould that Italeri reissued with some updated parts a little while ago. It also had the advantage of having recess detailed compared to the standard Italeri E/H/J kit, so I did not have to rescribe it. I have added J specific antennas and configured it as one of 2 RAAF aircraft currently fitted with a satellite WiFi receiving antenna and long range tanks. Some more
  22. Having finished my Tamiya Chieftain it has been sugested that my next project should be the Italeri M32 which is in the stash. If anyone knows of anything I need to be aware of please shout out. Box and sprue pictures as soon as I liberate said kit from the loft insulation. Thanks for looking in - work starts soon Roger
  23. Hello, everyone ... a quick shout out to anyone that was following the original thread to my 806 build, ... well, it's done - well as done as it's ever going to be. There is a myriad of details that could be fettled with, and yes lots of prototypicality issues. But this was only ever an exercise in building the Italeri kit, and in my case using it as a means of illustrating an amusing backstory that I'd concocted. Apologies are perhaps in order because the photo's I include are literally just drive by shots taken to let my head know that it's all done, finished and I can guilt free
  24. I've been thinking of doing some USAFE stuff in 1/48 for a while now, and after a recent holiday to Suffolk, including a rather hot walk in Rendlesham Forest right up to the old fence at Woodbridge (and the obligatory trip to LN!) what better way to start than with the legendary A-10 Warthog. After some excellent advice on this site, I decided on the Italeri one. I'm sure all the kits have their pros and cons, but this seemed the best for my subject. Of course I'll need to find the right decals as this Hog will be a Bentwaters bird from circa 1986/87. WR tailcodes a must!
  25. Italeri is to release a new tool 1/32nd MRCA Tornado GR.4 kit in 2018-2020 - ref. 2513 Source: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235015790-news-italeri-2017/ V.P.
