  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. 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
  3. Not content with the Matador and Fw190 multi build I joined the VSTOL group build with the intention of building the prototype V22 as the Italeri kit needs correcting to make a decent MV22. Since I missed the GB deadline I will move the build here. And this is where it sits at the moment
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. And here´s my dad´s next project. After the Hungarians recieved D Stukas, the B models were used for training and transitioning. DSC_0005 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0014 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0015 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  7. 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
  8. Hi, This is a project that has been at the back of my mind for well over 20 years, and now the moderators have kindly cleared it, then it might, stress might get done, and then again maybe not as you will see from my later posts as I seem to have aquired a second kit that might not need much work doing! I bought this 1986 kit back in the early 1990's, and it went into my stash. A few years later I saw the Film BAT*21 with Gene Hackman and got the kit back out with a view to building an EW one as seen in the film, but then found that the Airwaves conversion set was out
  9. 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.
  10. This was a birthday gift from my wife. Possibly a record in recent times for getting built within two months of acquisition and not suffering a diversion into the stash! On opening the box I was surprised and pleased to see the decals were for un-PC Rothmans rather than the boxart “Racing”. The real car is just down the road at Beaulieu if you want to go and see what its supposed to look like. . The kit itself is somewhat ancient, originally by Esci and having been reboxed by both Revell and Italeri over the years. Now I love cars with massive flared arches as much as the next ch
  11. hello fellow modellers, I want to share some progress of this project. so far it has been quite fun and enjoyable to build. I found very useful this post by Pappy (from 2008!) here's my first WIP
  12. 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.
  13. I don't build cars very often (and it shows - I hear you cry) so I decided to treat this one a little differently. As its moulded in nicely coloured plastic, I decided to build it without painting it. I'd imagine that this is how Italeri intended young modellers approach the kit. I may not be young any more, but I am young at heart Thanks for looking.
  14. It's time to start my next build of Italeri's desert Italiana. The Sahariana was specifically designed for desert use based on experiences with Scout and armoured cars. It's a very attractive and purposeful looking machine but a bit different from British and German equivalents. There's definitely a touch of Italian style in it. On one sand coloured sprues that's nicely moulded, crisp and clear with little signs of flash or seams. It's a fairly modern kit, according to Scalemates, it's an Italeri new tool from 2007. Straightforward instructio
  15. The VAL is done ! Scanning the stash for the next build is either a quick process - in case you have an idea in mind OR a long one - if you don't I did not - so picking this one took time and I'm not sure why I did or how it connects with the previous builds. The Covid-19 WFH period is nearing its end - so I hope I can still make progress with this build. It's a big one - I may need to re-order my shelves.
  16. Ok, maybe too late to finish in time, but I was so kindly invited I did't want to ignore it completely… As I just finished my latest project I can start with some very tiny. I'll try to convert this: into this: The famous MD 500 from the eighties TV series "Magnum, P.I."
  17. To balance off the power of all the Italian builds I'd better do something from the 8th Army so this one is up next. The Bishop was one of the first British attempts to make the 25 pounder field gun more mobile and protected by mounting it in a fixed armoured box on a Valentine chassis. Although this kit, according to Scalemates, is a 2008 Italeri boxing, it has its roots in a 1977 Esci kit. Three sprues, one the Valentine chassis and one the Bishop upperworks, both in typical Italeri hard plastic, nicely moulded and detailed, the other a grey sprue with the parts fo
  18. Next to drive onto the bench is this lovely piece of elegant Italian engineering, both in real life and model form. One sand grey coloured sprue. And the detail is lovely. This isn't one of Italeri's reboxing of an Esci original but a new tool from 2007. Instructions and transfers for 4 versions, 3 Italian and a Wermacht example. Off and going soon.
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. Hope nobody minds this post ...you have all seen this before, i was so happy with the Jagdtiger and the small base i did for it i decided to do the same for the Orphan...this is the result.
  22. The next Italian kit pulled from the stash is this. Initially designed as an anti aircraft gun, like the Flak88 it was also used as an anti tank weapon. This is is a simple kit comprising of a single sprue of not many pieces. The plastic is softish, not quite as soft as the old Airfix polythene figures, and it does sand, albeit it needing a fair bit of heft. And it is crisply detailed but I do worry about whether solvent will glue it together. And another sprue with 8 crew. Same plastic and it's just as well it sands as there are seams
  23. Next up is another Italeri offering, this time a Lancia truck with a 90/53 anti aircraft gun mounted on it. The Italians, like others in the Western Desert needed to get more mobility for their artillery and this was one of the options. The gun was used as an effective anti tank weapon as well as AA. The model is one of Italeri's fast assembly kits so it should go together relatively quickly but it does have a fair number of wheels to paint as well as a crew. There are three sprues, each of different plastic, the truck is typical Italeri hard and well moulded plastic,
  24. Introduction This thread was started intending to unite those interested in building the Fiat 806 based on thorough research and photogrammetry. See also the great Fiat 806 Gangshow build album. In the current thread there will be (at least I hope people will post) extensive research on the original car, photographs, drawings, literature and archives. Beside that the thread will feature scratchbuilding progress based on the findings. Perhaps in the future there could be exchanges of resin molded scratch parts, just like Vontrips kindly did with the tyres (for example: body panels / grille
  25. As you will see from the photos below this build is over the 25% rule so I have asked for permission to add it to this Group Build for a special reason. This kit used to belong to a fellow kit Modeller called Donald John MacKay, who lived locally in Oban and was a good mate of @Scimitar . Donald passed away recently leaving his family with an extensive stash of both books and models from a lifetime of collecting and @Scimitar real name Richard was a great help to the family in enabling them to get proper value for the items. This kit and others Donald never finished wer
