  1. Joining you with this Italeri RF-4 Phantom. Which I'm intending to build as the Luftwaffe Splinter camp option. This kit cost me £8, at Gloucester model show earlier this year.
  2. Part of the reason I bought and built the Lynx (RFI coming soon, honest) was to get my head in to the right space for building helicopters and hopefully do a better job of the Chinook as a result. I have the Italeri HC.2 / CH-47F kit which is a bit of a weird thing even before the get go, because (if I understand it) the HC.2 was the UK version of the D. Except for the Netherlands D, they had the analogue cockpit instruments. The CH-47F in contrast was the basis for the HC mk 6, which had the glass cockpit. I guess you could build either ( but not both!) from this kit, although it only comes with decals for the analogue cockpit so... Anyway The plan is to build ZA-712 ER of 7 squadron during its green HC2 phase. It features in the superb model alliance decals as an HC1 in 1991 / op Granby, but I want to make an HC-2 and I don't think I could pull off the black "scribbling" over desert pink camouflage. So I'm going to model the same aircraft, but from a later date when it was painted green, which means that I'll be using a combination of kit and Model Alliance decals. The reason I picked this aircraft is because 7 squadron is part of JSFAW which supports the UK special forces, meaning that I can include the beautiful miniguns that I bought from Live Resin. So, onwards. Cockpit first. The rear wall of the cockpit needs some detail removing and slightly bulking out the area where the PE goes as it doesn't quite look big enough. You can see it here. I added some PE to the cabin bulkhead, but I've read / seen that mostly the LHS is covered by soundproofing and often the RHS is too. I've ordered some clay "stuff" to make the sound proofing. In some of the pictures I saw the heater is partially exposed on the right, so I might go for something like that. More PE. It looks quite smart before it's painted black However, after painting it loses some of the detail. I tried to help by picking some of it out in a semi-gloss... Also, being all black makes it double-hard to photograph. Apparently. The PE instrument panel came out ok though Lastly it was on to the cargo floor which I did with the usual 2 shades of grey and a dirt wash. I'm hoping the wash will settle down a bit when I give it a coat of clear matt because I think I went a little bit over the top. Anyway, that's everything for now. Thanks for looking.
  3. Italeri is to release a new tool 1/32nd MRCA Tornado GR.4 kit in 2018-2019 - ref. 2513 Source: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235015790-news-italeri-2017/ V.P.
  4. This is the Italeri kit of the M4A1 Sherman which I’ve depicted as a Sherman lla of the 2nd Dragoon Guards, The Queens Bays, in Italy in 1944, crossing the Rabbi river. I've added some foliage to the hull and turret. The WIP can be found here; Thanks for looking. John.
  5. Dear all, Last months I've been working on an Italeri Wessex HU5 in 1/48 scale. Some info on the Wessex: Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westland_Wessex The kit from Italeri is not too bad, but also not really good. Details are soft, especially on the top. And some basic details are lacking. The fit is ok-ish. I used the following: 1. Italeri Wessex UH5 kit no 2720 (the 'UH5' is an error by Italeri. It should be HU5...) 2. Eduard mask 3. Eduard interior PE 4. Paints from Gunze for airbrush and Vallejo for brush painting 5. Weathering products from van Gogh, 502 abteilung (oils), AK Interactive line with e.g. grease, oil, dust etc 6. Uschi van der Rosten rigging wire 7. Some copperwire and evergreen for some of the details I've added I decided to portray the Wessex in the form of 84 Squadron, based in Cyprus (according to the kit info) in 1987. Here are the pics. You can see the build log here. I will now be starting on a Hobbyboss 1/72 Tomcat. Cheers! Jurrie
  6. So as we’re clear, this has nothing to do with the Jewish religion or a Scottish poet, it’s a river in Italy. I built this model a few years ago, before I joined BM, so it’s never been on here before as a WIP or even an RFI. At the moment, I’m experiencing some problems with a certain black dog, which is making modelling something which I have no interest in, but I’m using this build as something to get my interest going again. I still have my notes and some photos of the build, so bear with me and I’ll post the build bit by bit over the coming couple of weeks. I saw a photo in a Concord book “British Sherman Tanks”, of a Sherman lla of the Queens Bays crossing the Rabbi river in Italy and thought that it would make a good model subject. I had in the stash, Italeri’s M4A1 76mm, and although an old kit, it was according to what I read about it, basically accurate. Steve Zaloga did an article for MM some years ago and said just that. With any luck, I'll get on and start posting the build tonight or tomorrow. John.
  7. Released: Italeri's 1/72nd Bell 206A Jet Ranger - ref.1372 ESCI OH-58A kit repop (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234975536-italeri-2015/page-3) with new decals and more? Source: http://www.italeri.com/scheda.asp?idProdotto=2484 V.P.
  8. Hello folks, inspired by my friend Francis who recently built an M47 Patton, I decided to present the Croatian Balkan War version called “AZDAJA”, that means “DRAGON”. Look the real tank...these are the only two photos about AZDAJA that I found. Note that the tank does not have the headlights: and have the T80E1 links.... For this project I will use the M47 Patton from Italeri, kit number 6447, and I will added a set of photo-etched and resin parts from DEF Model, code 35024, plus the set of metal tracks T80E1 type from Fruilmodel, code ATL-145, and decals from Star Decals 35-C 1085 M47 Patton Balkan War and Peace. I agree with the others modellers that despite its age, this M47 is one of the best kit produced by Italeri, and it is a great platform for improvements. Well, first I assembled the bottom of the hull, the rolling train, I added some missing bolts (only 68) in the most notorious parts of the supports of the oscillating arms: Then, I added casting detail and foundry numbers in the hull and turret, and I replaced the support for the .50 machine gun and added rear lubrication points too: After that, I scratchbuild seven triangular hooks and added more 4 bolts over the rear plate, plus I made corrections in the gun lock: That's all for now...
  9. Hi all, This is a build blog of the very nice Italeri Starfighter in 1/32. I'm building it as a commission/present for a work colleague's father who flew them for the Royal Netherlands AF in the late 70s/early 80s. It's quite a familiar and popular kit and there are many builds of it available online. Mine's not intended to be an "event build" but just a simple step-by-step to see how a big, nicely-produced kit like this can be built and adjusted without resorting to masses of expensive aftermarket bits! This is the intended subject: LINK to original copyright photo - F-104G D-8300 of 311 Sqn based at Volkel. It was the pilot's favourite aircraft - apparently it had a good crew chief who kept it in top operational condition. So what's in the box? First, lots of nicely detailed plastic: There's a whole J79 engine included which can be displayed separately on a provided trolley à la Tamiya F-16 if required. The kit provides decals for eight different versions from various European air forces and one RCAF option. There's also an option in this release to produce a recce RF-104G version. Even at the relatively steep price you can't complain about the bang for your buck! So, on with the build! Alan
  10. Hey everybody, is there room for one more? I would like to build this: in these colours: As a twist I’m debating building it as G-SHWN that’s currently on the air show circuit, including the civilianised interior and possibly the invasion stripes! Chris

  12. A close inspection from the soon to be released 1/32nd Italeri's Mirage IIIC sprues pics (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234975571-132-dassault-mirage-iiic-by-italeri-box-artdecals-release-late-september-early-october/?p=2112443) show clearly the typical MIIIE wheel brakes as an option. A new variant in view? Time will tell. V.P.
  13. Afternoon folks - been on something of a Tonka project this year and this one is a Saudi Air Force version built straight out of the box from Italeri in 1:48. I think I have the measure of this kit now and enjoyed the build with no real issues. The main bit to watch out for is swing wings and the front section where the fit is a bit off. I used Tamiya and Mr Color paints with some Alclad. The Tonka looks great in that desert wrap around camo I reckon and it goes with a similar scheme I did for a Lightning a couple of years ago.
  14. Just finished this kit, and really pleased with the outcome. No real issues with it, apart from the bonnet fit which was terrible.
  15. Greetings this is min first model in this forum, this is the MC 200 Saetta 1/48.
  16. 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 probe, pilots' seat arm, winch and some defensive guns and became the HH-3E, nicknamed the Jolly Green Giant. They didn't and couldn't work alone though. They were still relative sitting ducks to ground fire, expected to fly into a hover in an area where a fast jet had been shot down. They flew in pairs, a high ship providing cover and a low ship which went in to pick up the downed airman/airmen. They usually had an escort of around 4 Douglas Skyraiders which flew under the nickname of "Sandy" which would provide heavy suppressive fire support for the helicopters. The whole operation was initiated, supported and coordinated by the crew of the Combat King however - the HC-130P would patrol and listen on the US military's radio frequencies monitoring ongoing air operations. As soon as they heard communications that suggested a friendly aircraft was in trouble the CSAR machine was warmed up. The Combat King crew would direct the rescue aircraft to the scene but also provided refuelling services to the fairly short-ranged Jolly Green Giants. The models then - I'm using a Whirlybird kit of the HH-3E which is almost entirely resin with a fret of photoetched brass. Unlike their earlier S-61N conversion which used a Revell donor kit, the HH-3E is a complete kit. Good then. The HC-130P is going to be provided by Italeri, with HC-130P conversion parts from David J Parkins' Flightpath, with photo etched details (mainly to get the flaps which, as can be seen above, were normally extended to allow the big Herc to fly slow enough for the helicopter to keep pace and take on fuel) and the correct Alison T56-A-15 engine nacelles from same. I still need the air to air refuelling pods from Flightpath and they're not available right now but David, if you're reading, I'll be keeping an eye on your website for them coming back into stock. It'll be a while before they hold up proceedings though. Never one to be content however, I have decided to attempt to make this much more difficult. I've never been impressed by clear plastic discs with blurry blades and the like, so to try to get a good impression of movement, I've decided to electrify this little ensemble. That's going to be easier said than done... Apart from any thing else, when you've actually seen things like the helicopter (or at least are familiar with its family members) things like relative RPMs begin to matter, within fairly broad reason. When photographed, the relative blur achieved by an camera will be more telling than just looking and since most people will see this through the results of a camera, I wanted to make a reasonable effort during the parts procurement process to try to get it close-ish. I've known 3 Hercules pilots, and have no way of contacting any of them so I've had to guess at what is probably a sensible propeller RPM for a C-130 flying straight and level with flaps down - and my guess is that 1200 RPM isn't going to look out of place. I ordered 4 of these for the Herc: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DC3V-1200RPM-Micro-Mini-6mm-Planetary-Gear-Reducer-Motor-Precision-DIY-Robot-car/254151008187?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2648 These are approximately 17mm long and 6mm in diameter. The solid resin engine nacelles are, I believe, a benefit here since I can drill the nacelles in my pillar drill and get all the motors and thus all 4 propellers on the same axis. It would look dreadful if they all had different up/down/side thrust. Everything needs to be straight and aligned properly. On to the helicopter for now though. I needed to measure up what I had to work with, and that meant cleaning up the fuselage halves: The fit is pretty good, but there is a mismatch on the top of the fuselage to deal with later - but it doesn't affect what I need to know now: I have a bit of space to work with for the main rotor, but still the smaller the better - I don't really want a huge silver monstrosity gleaming through the cabin windows: The tailrotor however is a real issue: I have better data here (I think) about what speeds I want, but in truth that probably makes me less satisfied with whatever I get in the end! I have my father available who was licensed on the Sikorsky S-61N and has all of his Sikorsky course notes. I'd love to show some of the amazing reference material inside, but Sikorsky never miss an opportunity to sue people and the course notes have prohibitions on unauthorised disclosure all over them, so you'll have to take my word for the rest. Not knowing any S-61R drivers, but believing the powertrain to be very similar to the S-61N, my dad's course notes state that 100% on the mainrotor is 203 RPM. The same drawing shows that the power take-off for the tail rotor runs at 3030 RPM at 100% and that the 45deg gearbox at the bottom of the pylon is a 1:1 gear ratio. The final drive gearbox to the tail rotor itself has a ratio of 2.4375:1, making the tailrotor run at 1243 RPM at 100%. The best I could find that would fit in the fuselage for the mainrotor was this 242 RPM geared motor, measuring 16.5mm long by 6mm diameter: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/253771137237 That's at 3v so I've also ordered some little potentiometers to, hopefully, tweak that down a touch. Compromise is the key here. I considered asking someone to design and 3D print me tiny bevel gears and sit a motor in the pylon coaxial with where the transmission shaft would be on the real thing, but then I found these: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DC3V-3-7V-4-2V-Ultra-mini-Coreless-Motor-3-2mm-12-2mm-Vibration-Vibrating-Motor/283101330780?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=583506556671&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 They are tiny little things 3.2mm x 12.2mm overall including the shaft which has a vibrating counterweight attached, so I've ordered 2 of them incase I ruin one. This should just fit in there. I expect it spins far too fast for what I want, but I will mock it up first with a potentiometer and see how low I can get it - but really I think I'll just need to take what I get as this really seems to be the absolute bottom end of what's readily available on the market just now. Since I had the stuff out, I made a move on the sponsons. Whirlybird provides sponsons with separate end plates; one with floats for the HH-3F "Pelican" used by the Coast Guard, one plain as used on some of the CH-3C utility versions and one with the pylon for extended range fuel tanks. The fit isn't great unfortunately. I spent a while trying to make sure the pylons were aligned and looked like they would be at the same angle of incidence as each other - I don't want one fairly long, spindly fuel tank pointing up and one down! I've had this stuff for a while but have never used it, so thought I'd give it a go It's like Milliput but seems a bit softer and easier to knead/mix than my packets of Milliput. That said, my Milliput has always been quite old whenever I've used it - mixing epoxy putties always seems a real faff so I'll use solvent types normally. For resin here though this is probably more suitable. Thanks for looking in. This won't be fast paced - and indeed I need to wait for motors to arrive, but I will work away at it along with my other projects. I'm not always in the mood for shaping / painting / photo etch / sanding / scribing so I like having different models at different stages of build and pick up whichever I'm in the mood for. I'm not a linear person.
  17. Hello all, for my entry I will be building Italeri's A10. The kit come with four decal options 2 European green schemes and 2 low vis grey schemes but one has the shark mouth and the later the snake teeth options. I haven't decided which on to build as yet as the kit is not right for a or c model. Just found the Print scale decal sheet which has an experimental camo with warthog tusks and nostrils, 3 tone brown camo looks unusual. Now that the Blackbird is finished I can get started on this one. IMGA0746 by neil Connor, on Flickr
  18. #18/2019 My dad hasn´t done 1/35 in over 20 years. But this scale was the only chance to build one of the GMC trucks he drove when he did his conscript time in the mid 60ies in the Austrian army with the Panzergrenadierbataillon 11 (Ausbildung). Like other European countries, also Austria used US "leftovers" from WW2. All common versions of this truck were in use in our Bundesheer, 353, 352, hard top, soft top, wooden bed, steel bed, compressor, shop version...main version was the 353 troop carrier which was slowly replaced with the Steyr 680M truck towards the end of the 60ies. Used the old Italeri kit with decals from the company Schefczik, sadly both are no longer in production. The decals are selfmade style and I advised my dad to secure them, which he didn´t, so there are some minor damages to them. The little numbers were printed very tight together on the sheet which gave some trouble. That´s why the "3" decals came from a different source and are therefore in a wrong style. For THE Austrian army colour RAL7013 olive-grey my dad used a selfmix of Tamiya XF51 and XF62. Furthermore he did some scratchbuilding like additional turn signals and rear lights. The distance poles on the front fenders are metal parts from RB Model.

  19. Modified with DEF resin wheels (since Italeri still boxes their Humvees with the wrong type), I finally finished these two and incorporated them into my Division 2 diorama, found here I did consider camouflaging them, but thought I'd give the plain green (as they appear in the game) a go Thanks for looking Gaz
  20. Nowadays it is common practice for Airlines to paint one of their Aircraft in a so called "Retro Look" to commemorate former successful times. In 1952 the Scandinavian Airlines System, short SAS, went another way. They painted one of their Aircraft, in this case a DC-3, in a future livery, . But when the new paint Job was shown to the bosses, they were not amused. They did not like it at all and ordered to repaint the Douglas immediately! As Michael J. Fox said in "Back to the Future, part 1": You guys are not ready for that, but your kids are gonna love it! So this Aircraft never flew in this beautiful livery, what a pity!
  21. Hi, Does anyone have pictures och the Italeri Junkers Ju 88 038 "Torpedobomber" kit? Wonder if the ventral fuselage hatch is a lose part or if is moulded with the fuselage? I have an Ju 88 G7 kit made with parts from the Ju 188. But still have solve how to make the ventral hatch. Cheers / André
  22. This is gonna be my dad´s first 1/35 build since over 20 years. He will try to recreate one of the GMC trucks he drove during his conscript time in the Austrian Army in 1966. Our Jimmys had steel beds, so the Tamiya kit wasn´t an option. Between the Italeri and the Heller kit, my dad chose the latter one because it includes a canvas for the rear.

  23. Afternoon all, Here is my entry for the 'Specialist' Group Build, Italeri's 1/72 SR-71 Blackbird, pretty much out of the box all bar a brass/resin pitot set and the addition of some astronauts left over from a recent Airfix Lunar Module build. The paint has been weathered using oil paints. The decals aren't that bad and conformed well with set/sol the silvering is purely down to me getting the gloss coat badly wrong with my first use of Alclad II Aqua Gloss. It is not a stellar kit with some loose and ill defined fitting of the major airframe assemblies plus some well documented shape issues mainly around the nose/cheek chine profile. However, that being said I enjoyed the build and am now glad I took the opportunity to add one of my favourite looking aircraft to my collection. Cheers, Mark.
  24. Hello all, Placeholder for my specialist GB build, the Lockheed Martin SR-71 Blackbird from the Italeri kit: Cheers, Mark.
  25. So, here we are. I'm not ready after more than a year of waiting. No point in having an extensive discussion of the Italeri M47 kit here; it is almost as old as I am, and has been around the block a few times. That said, it holds up well compared to any other armor kit from the 70s, and is still a good model today. Someone at Italeri poured a lot of love into this model box then, and it still shows. Here's a look at just a few of the boxings of it out there through the years.
