  1. 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
  2. Italeri is to release a new tool 1/48th Lockheed-Martin F-35B Lightning II kit - ref. 2810 Not a bad news considering the only other 1/48th F-35B available kit is the Kitty Hawk one. Source: https://www.italeri.com/uploads/news/AY8p8Mc4VebT1GVJ5SVhR0wRFuvMlyG6nbu5dgSD.pdf Box art V.P.

  4. My second lockdown completion and another Wessex, this time a HAS3, it is the 1/72 Italeri kit with the Rotorcraft correction and External fuel tank and pylon from Air Graphics, markings came from the kit and various Modeldecal sheets some of the markings are a best guess as HMS Londons Wessex 3 seems to have been a bit camera shy and I could only find two very poor pictures of her including one that showed the name 'Cockney Rebel' but I'm happy with it _IMG9032_1 by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr _IMG9029_1 by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr _IMG903
  5. Hi all, I just joined the forum after finding lots of useful info on Coastal Forces here. I bought the Italeri Vosper MTB kit mostly on a whim, fancying building a kit and assuming a larger scale would be easier to pick up, though I now appreciate that the smallest part in any kit will be similarly sized to the smallest part in any other kit. Anyway, I have picked up some tools and glues and have made a start on parts which I’m fairly sure I can carry on with without firmly committing yet to which boat I will actually portray. The only thing I am certain of is that it will not
  6. 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
  7. And my dad started the next seaplane. Don´t know which scheme yet. DSC_0007 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr cockpit in progress, RLM02 applied DSC_0008 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0009 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0010 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0011 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  8. As previously posted in the 'What have you bought recently' section of the best area on Britmodelller another Transit is on the bench and is undergoing surgery, indeed as usual most of it will not end up being used or not being cut into pieces The most important tools are on the box and have been weilded at the big bits already. I decided on the Police version for a change and thought there may be some items that could be used on other projects. I'll also be turning into a Mk.2 Phase 1 which requires mods to the grille, lights and indicators. If any Transit officianados know of any other difer
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Hello to all of you.I present you my latest finished model.I hope you like it. https://youtu.be/2taa1w4awNE
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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
  25. 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.
