  1. With a bit more room here, I was thinking about suitable types for a STGB. One aircarft type which crossed my mind was the Junkers Ju 87 Stuka. There are great kits out there in all the scales and an upcoming new release from Airfix in 1/48 and I couldn't see it listed in the completed GB listing, so it looks like it was never done before. Also the type flew from the Spanish Civil War up to the end of WWII and was operated in many different colour schemes by all the Axis Air Forces plus captured examples. And with its 3.7 cm canons, it was the closest thing to a flying tank. Any takers to put the name on the list? 1. Basilisk (Host) 2. Arniec 3. Caerbannog 4. jrlx 5. SimonT 6. Knight_Flyer 7. John 8.

  2. Dear Fellow Modellers, This is my rendition of Revell's 1/72 Ju 88A-4, in the scheme used in Sicily, in 1941. It was my entry to the Ju 88 STGB. Unfortunately I didn't managed to finish it in time, even after an additional week was given to finish the GB. The WIP thread is here. Anyway, it was finished last night and here are a few notes, before the pictures: It's my first two-engined bomber model and my most complex model until now It was super-detailed using Eduard's BIG PE set, with details for the interior, exterior and surface panels The kit's engine exhausts were replaced by Quickboost's resin exhausts, much better detailed I scratch built the inner ribbing structure of the tail section, using strips of plasticard, and the instrument boxes and wiring on the back of the instrument panel, using pieces of plasticard rods and very thin copper wire Masking of the transparent parts was done using the pre-cut masks in Eduard's BIG set The kit has a few important fit problems: the join of cockpit underside and top parts, the join of the front fuselage and nose glazing, the join of the wing tips with the rest of the wings, the insertion of wings in the fuselage and the join of the the wings' leading edges and fuselage Painting was done mainly with Gunze acrylics and a few Tamiya, all airbrushed. Alclad Aluminium was used for a few NMF parts Alclad's Aqua Gloss was used as clear coat before decaling and the wash, and Alclad's Flat Klear was used as finishing coat Weathering was done with Vallejo's washes and pigments using period photos as references Now, the pictures of the finished model. 1.

  3. Hi here's a few pics of a build finished a little while ago. Pretty simple kit of an unusual (to me) subject. Used Blue Rider decals (what few there are) to represent a Bolivian machine of the 1920's Thanks 20200125_154030 by bryn robinson, on Flickr 20200125_154021 by bryn robinson, on Flickr 20200125_154005 by bryn robinson, on Flickr 20200125_153950 by bryn robinson, on Flickr 20200125_153937 by bryn robinson, on Flickr
  4. Here's my ICM Ju 88C-6b in 1:48. The decals on this kit are of the ones that stick at first contact with the surface. I lost three of the main decals and had to improvise.
  5. Hello guys. As the title explains, are ICM's decals of the sticky nature? I don't want to find out that after having my model all gloss coated, only to find out the decals stick firmly to the surface as soon as they are placed. TIA!
  6. This is the special edition of the Hasegawa kit, which includes some white metal parts for the 20mm cannons, flame damping exhausts and the different antenna for the top of the canopy. As usual the Hasegawa kits go together without much fuss with the decals and detail being just fine for this scale. I did add some seat belts to the kit though. The aircraft depicts one of Nachtschlachgruppe 9 in Italy that carried out night harassment raids against the allies. Camo was done free hand.
  7. Finished this Stuka yesterday as part of the Ju 87 GB, which ends in April. This plane was also my first entry ever into a group build! It's not a bad kit. The clear parts are the worst parts, they're narrower than the cockpit opening, so they don't sit properly over the opening.
  8. Don't ask me what it is... AZmodel is to release a 1/72nd (Junkers ????) kit - ref. Source: https://www.facebook.com/azmodelkits/photos/a.478840912140523/2598691176822142/ V.P.
  9. Hello all! Here are some photos of my recently completed model, Revell's Ju 88A-1 in 1:32. It was a fight from start to finish, some pieces, such as the rudder pedals, didn't live to see the end of the project. I take all that to my own poor construction methods. I won't build another 32nd bomber again.
  10. Decided to start a side project, apart from Airfix's 1:48 Bf 109E. This photo is from earlier today. And this one is from today's evening. The camouflage has been outlined with a pencil. I had glue remaining just for the left engine cowling, I'll buy more tomorrow, if I can.
  11. Ju.290 Update Set (BRL72187 for Revell) 1:72 Brengun The Ju.290 Seeadler was a huge maritime reconnaissance aircraft that could also be pressed into service as a transport. It was chosen as a candidate for development into the proposed Amerika Bomber project that eventually fizzled out as the situation in Europe deteriorated. Less than 70 were built and none survived long after the war. Revell’s kit in 1:72 is as nice as it is large, and with its heritage beginning in 2003 it is a relatively modern tooling, but could do with some upgrading of the finer details to match modern standards and satisfy those interested in detail. This Photo-Etch (PE) set from Brengun is designed to improve on what Revell have given us by adding extra detail in all the right places. It arrives in a compact flat pack with a red Brengun themed header card and a sheet of black paper showing off the PE within. There are two frets of nickel-plated PE, plus a small slip of clear acetate with the instrument panel and gunsight on the mid-upper turret. The instructions are found behind the black paper, and construction begins with the rear turret, with interior detail in the canopy as well as within the opening into the fuselage, including a new set of ring sights at the tip of the barrel. Flipping to the front, the cockpit has a new set of instrument panels with the acetate rears depicting the dials, a new coaming, throttle quadrants, rudder pedals and other instruments on the sidewalls. The seats also get belts and a stowage pocket behind the right seat. The mid-upper is decked out with a brand new turret basket after removing the simplified tube that is provided in the kit, including instruments around the lip, ammo feed, and upgrades to the gun with the aforementioned gunsight. Externally, the main gear wells are adorned with a new bay skin, plus a new set of laminated bay doors and brake hose parts, while the airframe is given a make-over by replacing most of the antennae dotted around, including the whisker antennae on the nose, which will improve their look immensely. Lastly, the engines are fitted with a circular inner skin that gives the impression of depth and the cylinders behind the prop boss. As an aside, the picture of the PE wasn't taken in black and white, but came out looking that way for reasons best known to my scanner and how it reacts to the light reflecting off the metal. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  12. Ju.52 Update Sets (For Revell) 1:48 Eduard Revell have recently re-released their still excellent Ju.52 Tante Ju kit (reviewed here), and Eduard have reciprocated by re-tooling their sets for the modern modeller. Eduard's new range of sets are here to improve on the kit detail in the usual modular manner. Get what you want for the areas you want to be more of a focal point. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. Update Set (49987) Two frets are included, one nickel plated and pre-printed, the other in bare brass. A complete set of new layered instrument panels, throttle quadrant and radio gear plus a new engineering panel are the primary parts on the painted set, with new rudder pedals; racks & brackets; controls inside the fuselage; machine gun and ammo can details; and even some bracing to the nose-mounted engine's exhausts are also supplied. Zoom! Set (FE987) This set contains a reduced subset of the interior, namely the pre-painted parts that are used to improve on the main aspects of the cockpit, as seen above. Whatever your motivations for wanting this set, it provides a welcome boost to detail, without being concerned with the structural elements. Seatbelts STEEL (FE988) In case you don't already know, these belts are 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. As well as lap belts for the rest of the crew, the pilot has a four-point harness, and the rows of sideways-facing passenger seats have new lap belts added after removing all the moulded in representations from the whole aircraft. Passenger Seats (49988) This larger bare brass set two frets with a large floor skin for the passenger compartment, which is then decked out with two seats at the rear with recessed tops to accommodate parachute pack wearing crew. A set of grab handles are fitted to the inner fuselage sides, and two sets of twin seats are made up to line the sides, adding a substantial improvement in detail, and begging to be used in conjunction with the seatbelt set. Masks (EX655) Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the canopy, with extra masks for the side windows and other glazing parts. In addition you get a set of hub/tyre masks for all the wheels, allowing you to cut the demarcation perfectly with little effort. Review sample courtesy of
  13. Hello guys, as per the title, does anyone have any building tips for Revell's Ju 88A-1 in 1:32? Especially around the cockpit area. My first attempt at this model ended up with horrible gaps around the nose and cockpit area. With the second model, I learnt from my mistakes and managed to evade any issues with the cockpit. Sadly I had to trash the model after a shelf fell over it. Now, this will be my third attempt to build this plane, and I would like to receive some building tips. I plan on finishing this third model as my second one, B3+DR from KG54. Any building tips will be helpful, especially any tips regarding the fit of the cockpit and the sidewalls to the fuselage halves. I already have SAC's white metal landing gear to replace the plastic ones from the kit. Thank you very much, Francisco.
  14. Trumpeter is to release a 1/24th Junkers Ju-87A Stuka kit - ref. 02420 A test build was on display at the All Japan Model & Hobby Show 2016.

  15. Hi! Here are the photos of my latest work. It`s the ICM kit,which despite having received a lot of "flack" builds up into a beautifull model. It has several issues, mainly with the cockpit, but, after the glass work was installed, this modeller can live very well with it. paints utilised: Vallejo Model Air e acrílicos Mig. detailing sets: Eduard interior and exterior set If you have interest, you can find in my blog around 90 fotos with all the building and painting process explained. http://josepiresmodelismo.blogspot.pt/ This model was part of Airfix Model World mag, December 2017 issue.
  16. Junkers F.13 Conversion Set (MX 7222.07) 1:72 Master-X The Junkers F.13 was an all-metal, cantilever wing monoplane that was one of the most advance aircraft in the world when it first flew in June 1919. It was in production for 13 years - an incredible feat given the stupendous pace of aeronautical development throughout the early twentieth century. The aircraft was built around an aluminium alloy frame, with stressed skin in the classic Junkers style. The cockpit was only semi-enclosed, but the passenger compartment, which was fitted out to accommodate four people, was fully enclosed and heated. Over 322 examples were produced, with a great many different power plants finding their way into the airframe. This conversion set from Master-X is designed for the Revell kit - a stone cold classic from the German firm's 1990s purple patch. In the plastic bag, you get a replacement upper fuselage, horizontal and vertical tails, ailerons, wheels, propellor and lower cowling. The standard of casting is high and the rendering of the surface details means it will be a good match for the original kit. Of course the parts will need to be cleaned up prior to assembly, but from what I've seen, I wouldn't expect construction will present too many difficulties. Decals are included for the intended subject, an example used by the Eurasia Aviation Corporation in China in 1931. The colour scheme is a striking black, red and aluminium number. Conclusion This is a well-designed and nicely made conversion set which opens up new possibilities for Revell's excellent kit. The inclusion of decals is a necessity given the nature of the conversion, but one which makes this into a nice little project. An absolute must for fans of interwar aviation.

  17. Afternoon everyone. For my next project, I'd like to try and replicate the Ju88r found at the RAF Museum Cosford (formally at Hendon) in 1/72 scale. This particular airframe has a fascinating history, I'm sure many of you know already know it, and I'd like to try and get as close as possible to this, but alas know very little about the differences in specifications of the Ju88. Extra information on the aircraft can be seen here: https://www.rafmuseum.org.uk/cosford/whats-going-on/news/german-bomber-wings-its-way-to-the-midlands/ I already have the Revell Ju88C (as here: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/revell-04856-junkers-ju-88c-6-z-n--176229) and wonder what I would need to do to get as close as possible to the RAF Museum R model? I'd really appreciate any tips, guides or information anyone has on this! Thanks in advance Matt
  18. I used to build a lot of WWI planes, some of them were vacforms . Time to have a go at one, no rigging on this one. Decals Three sprues of flashy parts, and there is some very little parts. Have assembled the engine and cockpit ready for paint tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by. Stephen
  19. As already announced in a ICM general thread ( http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234974439-icm-148-junkers-ju-88a5dornier-do-17z/), the Ukrainian brand is to release a new tool 1/48th Junkers Ju-88A-5 kit in 2015 - ref.48232.

  20. For my second build which i will be doing consecutively with my Ju88 s-3 to enable painting to take place at same time (to save time ) i have chosen another 88 from low down in the stash pile ,the oldish Dragon Ju88 G-6 . I understand that this can be a tricky kit to build but i feel forwarned ! I will be using the Aims decal sheet Ju88 G-6 , mistel collection. I have chosen this one as i have a built Hasegawa Morgenstern and hope to have a more typical G-6 later in the coming months. have assembled a small selection of resin I have some CMK seats and Quickboost exhausts to come. I have made use of the "less than 25% built rule" to do some pre preparation on the kit prior to the start on the 7th may. basically iv removed and cleaned up some of the larger parts , suprising how long this can take The rest of the parts Now only the main course to get on the table
  21. Hello! Here is my Anigrand Craftswork 1:144 Junkers EF.130 medium jet bomber project which I built back in 2008. It is in fictitious markings of 1./KG6 of the Luftwaffe. This kit was one of the bonus kits with the Horten Ho.XVIII kit, and it was my first all-resin kit build. Apart from the work in cleaning up the parts and getting them to fit, I added a couple of details to the cockpit and thinned the undercarriage doors considerably. The scheme was inspired on a real one I found on a Ju 188 of 1./KG6. The kit was mostly painted by brush with some varnish applied by airbrush. Thanks for looking Miguel
  22. Here is Anigrand Craftswork's 1:144 resin kit of the Junkers EF.132 bomber project which I built in 2002. Markings are for a fictitious KG200 machine in the Luftwaffe. It was built mostly OOB with only the guns being replaced by thinner items. The undercarriage doors were thinned. It was all painted by brush except for the matt varnish which was applied with airbrush. Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome Miguel
  23. My first experience with the Wingnut Wings kit is finished and I must admit it was a pure joy! I`ve used TaurusModels engine goodies and my own hand-carved propeller with a resin hub by ProperPlane. Painted mostly with Tamiya acrylics.
  24. Hello, So it happens that it`s the first WnW kit on my bench. I`m also going to build Bristol Fighter WnW with Aviattic decals simultaneously with this one. What can I say - it's simply awesome!! Love every second of the time I spent building it so far. The box picture is by Artro modelling (too lazy to take one on my own).
  25. Ok the idea for this build is a bit of a mash up of a couple of builds I have wanted to do, but didn’t the time or the motivation for at the time. One has been running around in one form or another in my mind for quite a while now. I have come close a couple of times to starting it, (a Ho-229 was to be the base for one) and I sort of did with the Turbo-Prop Arado, but it still wasn’t quite what I had in mind. I have two similar projects on the go but they're on the back burner for a bit. The second was that I have a Planet Models Ju-388J nightfighter (Jumo 213 version) sitting in the stash that I have been dying to build and have never had the excuse to. So after seeing the Ju-88 STGB I finally had the idea of how to killer two birds with one stone and bring these two ideas together! So the plan is…… If the war had stretched into 1946 we would have seen some interesting aircraft and technologies in service, especially so with radar technology advancing as quick as is was. By the end of the war we were already seeing the next generation of radar systems which operated in the Centimetre band, like the RAF’s H2S and US H2X radars and the German FuG-240 (Berlin) & FuG-244 (Bremen) units. A few of the Ju-88’s were fitted with the FuG-240 and it was found they recovered their original speed which had been lost with the earlier radar units and their large antennas/antlers! It would have been only to be a matter of time before the use of the FuG-240 (and later versions) would have been more widespread, with it being fitted to newer aircraft models as they became available. With the venerable Ju-88 reaching it’s peak in the Ju-388 family this aircraft would have been a prime candidate for the new radar system. Well that’s the plan, chop the nose off a 388 and fit a new nose, simple really, but……….. I want it to be as believable as possible and not too whiffy which will make it a bit harder. So this will be the base, Planet Models Ju-388J-3 with Jumo 213 engines, of cause I reserve the right to add lots of other stuff as I go along, it wouldn’t a normal build if I didn’t throw in heaps of extras! The 388 is actually quite a nice model the only thing that may give me issues is the wings, they are very slightly warped and getting the dihedral right will be fun! The nose is just a resin cast of the long radome version, it looks a bit better in my opinion than the shorter version. Well best to start by cutting off the nose, luckily there is a very convenient panel line to follow for this. Strangely enough this happens to be almost perfectly round which will make life much easier as we go to fit the nose. Ok first fit, it doesn’t look all the great, I’ll need to move it forward a bit. That’s looking a bit better, so I’m going to have to add a bit to get the profiles right, I have a plan for that! First I’ll make a ring using plastic card, working with plastic will make this part so much easier! Next to fill the gap I’m going to use plastic strip like so. I just keep adding rings till I get the right diameter. Then add a disk at the back the size I require and the first part is done, only a small amount of filler required for shaping. Ignoring the joint gap for the moment I now have to decide how I want the new nose to sit, sort of inline with the horizontal axis or a bit dropped down? I like the inline one as it looks good, but I have to remember the flying attitude of the 388 (and 88 for that matter) was slightly nose up, they didn’t fly truly level! So I may need to have it slightly drooped down so the antenna face would be lined up to the vertical axis. Have a look at how the antennas were mounted on 88’s and you’ll see what I mean. Well I’ve made a start, there’s only a couple of hours work (I needed a brake from the Ta-152 as I was getting annoyed with it!) and the project is a goer. I’ve actually done the filling of the nose now as well and it’s looking good! This won’t be a full time project, just something to work on when my other builds frustrate me and I need a break from them. I can’t promise I’ll be finished by Xmas either as I’m bound to do other mods on this as I go along. This should be an interesting build!
