  1. Seatbelts IJN Fighters STEEL (FE857) 1:48 Eduard In case you don't already know, new Eduard seatbelt sets are now all made from Photo-Etch (PE) steel, and because of their strength they can be etched from thinner material, which improves realism and flexibility in one sitting. Coupled with the new painting method that adds perceived extra depth to the buckles and other furniture by shading, they are more realistic looking and will drape better than regular brass PE. This set contains eight sets of belts, four for Mitsubishi aircraft, which had only lap belts until near the end of the war when a single shoulder harness was added; two for Nakajima aircraft, which had lap belts only throughout the war, and two more for Kawanishi aircraft, which had lap and shoulder belts throughout the war. As usual, the diagrams show the attachment points on the (generic) seats to assist you with fitting them to your model. Review sample courtesy of
  2. Ready for inspection is my 1:72 Mitsubishi A6M2b 'Zero' by Airfix. This has to be one of the easiest and straightforward kits I have built, no flash on the sprues, fits nicely, and just enough detail. Paint was a slight issue, Humbrol being famously terrible to airbrush, but I overcame this by mixing my own off white/green for the top coat of the aircraft. All in all a nice little kit, I hope it does the aircraft which was declared the best carrier fighter aircraft in the world when it first flew justice. Thanks for looking.
  3. Hello gentlemen, This is my entry for the Flying Boats and Float Planes GB. Tamiya 1/48th scale. Aichi M6A1 Seiran. Kit Number 61054. This kit was first released in June 1997 (20 years old at the time of writing). There are 65 parts to the aircraft. This includes 2 crew members, 2 different windscreens and 2 different gunsights depending on which one you select. There is also another 18 parts for the trolley. The decals are by Invisa-clear. Tamiya went through a stage of putting these high quality decals with their kits around this time. I've used them before, and found them to be very good. The only draw back was, when I used a set which were about ten years old, they stuck like glue to the backing paper, and could not be used. I'm hoping this was just a one off as this set I intend to use could be 20 years old. I intend to use Tamiya Acrylics for the majority of the painting. With a Flory wash for the weathering, and a brown gauche on the trolley to represent the grain on the wooden components. As you can see on the box lid, I bought my example from EDDY'S in Helston in Cornwall for £15.99. Unfortunately, EDDY'S are no longer in business. This is the art work for the original release. The kit was released again in 2007 with a different box art. The kit is typically Tamiya, very well engineered with recessed panel lines. I've chosen this subject because I wanted a simple build, and hopefully I should finish it within the time span as I don't want fail to finish in yet another group build! Below is a link to Wikipedia should you wish to know more about the Aichi Seiran. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aichi_M6A The aircraft was designed to operate from submarines of the Imperial Japanese Navy. The link below will explain more about the submarine aircraft carrier. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/I-400-class_submarine Thank you, Joe.
  4. Hello Gentlemen, this is my next build on Britmodeller. FineMolds 1/48th scale Mitsubishi A5M4 "CLAUDE" Imperial Japanese Navy. The Mitsubishi A5M Japanese Navy Type 96 Carrier-based Fighter was the worlds first monoplane shipboard fighter to enter service and the direct ancestor of the Zero fighter. It was designed by Jiro Horikoshi who is the subject of the The Wind Rises which is an animated historical drama film. The model comes on three main sprues. Spure A contains the wing sections, B contains the engine & cockpit details with sprue D the fuselage halves. F is the transparency and P contains 2 poly caps , only one of which is required. The decal sheet has 3 colour schemes. No 1, 14th Naval Air Group, China, 1940, No 2, Aircraft carrier Kaga Naval Air Group, Japan, 1939, & No 3 Naval Third Carrier Division, 1942. There are 68 parts in total (2 of which are not used) 1 transparency & 2 poly caps. The box art. Construction stages 1 to 9 Construction stages 10 to 15 & paint chart. The three colour scheme options. Sprue A. The wing & undercarriage parts. If you look at the surface of the upper wing, you will notice the different shades of plastic. You can see it more with the naked eye. It shows the different panels very well. It will be interesting to see how they look on the finished model after the paint has been applied. Sprue B, The fuselage, engine & cockpit detail with the decal sheet. The transparency is in the decal bag along with the poly caps. I hope to start the kit in the next week or so. I will first remove all the major parts from the sprues and tape them together to get some idea of the fit. Thanks for looking, Joe.
  5. Mitsubishi A5M4 Claude, Imperial Japanese Navy, I N J Kaga, Finemolds 1/48th scale Click on WIP to see the build thread. The kit contained 67 parts, and apart from the seat harness, was built straight out of the box including decals. It was painted with Aclad II, Aeromaster & Tamiya Acrylics. Thanks for looking, Joe.
  6. Hi Guys, while I wait for bits of my 747 build to dry, I thought I'd put these out for you to peruse. Many years ago I went to Tokyo and took some rather bad photos of at that time the only surviving Yokosuka D4Y dive bomber. Today there is a second at Chino. Like I said, the pics aren't brilliant, but the aeroplane was a good 'un. Take a look here for a walkaround: http://warbirdswalkaround.wixsite.com/warbirds/what-s-new
