  3. Hi all After the Miles Master, I decided to stay in the british wings This time, I choosed a airplane a little modern the well know Hawker Siddeley Harrier, the "Jumpjet" I have a little preference for the "long nose" version : the GR3 I bought severals month ago a box of the AV-8A version, the US version of the Harrier It was in "promotion" and because I wished use an after market decals, it was a very good deal for me If the kit has an update for the fuselage sprue from GR1/3 box, the GR3 nose is in this box. The decals sheet I didn't arrest my choice for the red or white tails option I have a little time to make my choice
  4. Hi all, Here's my latest 3D printed kit update, this time for the Kinetic 1/48 Sea Harrier FRS1 and FA2 (they may also fit the Harrier Gr1/3 and T-Harriers). The update consists of two parts, including the prominent fan and then a representation of the compressor. As can be seen, there is an enormous improvement with these parts, when compared with the original kit part! Kinetic intake fan, selling for £6 plus £2.50 postage. See also, upgrade for the Hasegawa kit (will also fit kits that use the Hasegawa plastic - Revell & Hobby 2000). 3D printed upgrade featuring a two-piece fan. Hasegawa intake fan, now selling for £8 plus £2.50 postage. Cheers! Ben
  5. After the Sea Harrier FRS.1 (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234990951-sea-harrier-frs1-148/) and FA.2 (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234968544-sea-harrier-fa2-148/) Kinetic is to release a 1/48th BAe Harrier T.2/T.4/T.8 kit - ref.

  7. My (hopefully first) contribution to not feeling deserted by participating in this GB will be Kinetic's 1/72 F-16I Sufa. This is a rare 1/72 kit from Kinetic - I heard the CEO Kinetic interviewed on the Plastic Model Mojo podcast the other day say that the company had decided to specialise in 1/48 military jets. Maybe this kit, despite the stunning box art, didn't sell to expectations? Inside the (side-opening) box were eight individually wrapped sprues (one of which I realised after taking it is missing from the photo): As you can see the kit is generously supplied with external stores: LANTIRN and Litening pods, AXQ-14 datalink pod, 2 x Delilahs, 2 x AGM-142 Popeyes, 2 x Rafael Spice, 2 Python 4s and 2 AIM-120s (plus external tanks). I'll have to do some research on realistic fit-outs (and does anyone know why Kinetic included an AXQ-14 datalink pod but no GBU-15s?). Apparently it builds together quite nicely - I suspect building the airframe will be the easy part - painting and building the stores will be where the time goes. Surface detailing looks a little soft and deep though? But I'm sure it will look fine under paint/clear coats/weathering etc. Decals, by Cartography, look excellent. The instructions, while clear, look they were printed on the office laser printer, and on the paint guide it's hard to discern between the light green and tan camouflage colours. Plus there's no instructions for the external stores painting and decaling (nothing that a bit of Googling shouldn't fix though). Think I'll finish mine as a 119 'Bat' Squadron jet - TBC. Finally, for a bit of added detail I've bought a Kelik 3D decal set for the cockpit, and a Reskit resin exhaust is on its way. As I'm trying to stick to one substantive build at a time I won't really crack on with this for a while, until my Spanish F-4C for the Southern Europe GB is much more progressed. But I've been looking forward to this GB since it emerged from the bunfight - it's always fun to get down and dirty in the dust! Cheers, Gerard
  8. This is my Kinetic NF-5A in 1/48 scale. In the eighties I spent quite some time along the fence at Twenhe airbase (NL). This colour scheme was always my favourite on the NF-5's. The kit is not perfect, but very good and especially the decals are great. I used mainly Vallejo acrylics and some oils and pencils for the weathering. Hope you like the result. Comments and critics are welcome. Regards, Gerben
  9. Hi gents, Well... I've started to be bored with my current projects and as an Israeli GB has been opened in my "brazilian modeling forum"... I couldn't resist and opened another box... The kit Some help: The progress so far:
  10. Hi all I present my latest build Kinetic’s 1:48 T-Harrier (K48040) as with a lot of my models I wanted to do the kit in something other than the kit supplied markings so chose to do a Indian Navy Harrier. Well this has been a build of ups and downs a certainly nearly beaten me on more than one occasion but I was determined to get if done (well almost) I may revisit it at some point to finish some minor details but for now I’m done with it. anyway this was another kit picked out of the stash by my wife as this has been the theme this year. I purchased some aftermarket bits for it. Eduard Big ED set containing sets (48945)(49882)(EX576)&(FE883) Master brass pitot (AM-48-069) Model Alliance Decals BAe Sea Harrier pt.1 (MA-48153) Tmayia paints used throughout windsor and newton gloss and satin varnishes flory dark dirt wash and Abteilung Starship filth oil paint thanks for looking and happy modelling
  11. Hi here is my F-104 STARFIGHTER by Kinetic I stared this back in February and only just finished it due to my mojo waining and a few issues with the build along the way so wasn’t enjoyable as I’d of hoped. I brought this kit sometime last year and what seems to be a theme this year so far my wife picked this out of the stash to build next! I purchased a few aftermarket items for this build. Qunita Studio Interior 3D decals (QD48201) and very impressed with them MasterCasterS resin Martin-Baker Mk.Q7[A] Ejection Seat (MST48065) Master brass pitot tube (AM-48-044) Eduard TFace Canopy Masks (EX830) I decided to try Ammo-Mig paints with is build and this where I had the problems with paint peeling off with masking tape Tamiya and Vallejo paints also used thank for looking and enjoy
  12. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Kinetic is buzzing... Something really new (I think so as a little birdie tells me...) or something out of the pipeline (MIIID/B, Harrier GR.1/.3/.4, A-4 Skyhawk, C-17, F-18C etc.)? Wait and see.

  13. Here is my 1:72 Lockheed Martin F-16D Block 52+ Jastrząb, no. 4084, Polish Air Force, 2014. Kinetic kit with Eduard PE set, Attack Squadron resin fuel tanks and exhaust, Hasegawa missiles, Master metal Pitot tube and static dischargers. Decals by Model Maker (main) and Techmod (stencils). Painted with Gunze Mr.Color C series. Thanks for watching!
  14. Next Kinetic's 1/48th kit project will be, after the F-18 Hornet, another (USN?) classic naval fighter. All bets are off - Douglas A-4 Skyhawk? - LTV A-7 Corsair? - Vought F-8 Crusader? - Lockheed S-3 Viking? etc. or a Grumman F-14 Tomcat... I would prefer a Grumman F11F Tiger, a North American FJ-3 Fury, or a McDonnell F2H-3/4 Banshee. Not a fighter but also in my 1/48th wishlist is the North American AJ-1/-2 Savage...

  15. Hi folks and friends, may I present to you my latest release: An F-104A (late) set for the Kinetic F-104A/C kit. The parts in the kit don't contain any A parts but with this resin set you can actually build and accurate late type A, after ejection seat upgrade to the C-2 seat. Included are are lower fuselage insert piece, a fuselage panel with staggered vent louvres (with cutting template mask), fuselage side doubler plates (printed extremely thin), control stick and throttle, "A" specific instrument panel and a couple of aft canopy braces. Many thanks!! Jeffrey
  16. Hi folks, been looking forward to this GB for a while! I have an ungodly amount of Israeli aircraft in the stash to pick from: A-4s, F-16s, Spits- even a Vautour. I'll definitely try to get a few builds done here. Starting off with a Kinetic Nesher however as October marks 50 years since the Yom Kippur War- with the Nesher scoring 115 kills during the war. I picked up the Isradecal book on the aircraft and found a great photograph of Nesher '33' of 144 Squadron after a sortie in which it downed 2 MiG-17s. This Nesher would also down a MiG-21 later in the war. I like this aircraft for 2 reasons: 1. It was prior to the identification triangles being applied and 2. It has the red/white rudder markings of 101 squadron who operated it before 144 squadron was formed. I also got the Reskit Shafrir 2 missiles as the kit only has AIM-9s as well as some Eduard remove before flight tags. The decals supplied are fantastic, printed by cartograph and designed by Isradecal. I'll just be using different numbers and the 101st striped rudder from my spares. The kit is essentially the same as the Kfir Kinetic offer which I build recently and enjoyed more than I thought I would. The plastic in this boxing is much softer than the Kfir which is a relief as at times it felt like I needed a hammer and chisel for that kit. Very much looking forward to this build, have a few builds on the go currently but if I give myself a kick I should be able to get them pretty much wrapped up by the time this starts. Thanks for looking in!
  17. Here is the model I recently finished - 1:48 F-104S Starfighter, serial M.M.6869, no. 51-01, 51º Stormo, 22º Gruppo Aeronautica Militare (Italian Air Force) in occasional livery on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the unit in 1989. Kinetic kit (very nice to build) with PE set by Eduard, metal Pitot tube by Master, 3D-printed ladder by LP Models and decals by WandD (nice but very thick). Thanks for watching!
  18. Here is my 1:48 Alpha Jet E of French Air Force aerobatic team "Patrouille de France" as I saw her on Radom Air Show in 2011. Kinetic kit "out of the box" + some scratch. Nothing special, because the kit itself isn`t very good. Painted with Mr. Hobby C, polished. Thanks for watching!
  19. Since today (May 6th, 2012) the Lucky Model website proposes the Kinetic 1/48th Northrop F-5A/CF-5A/NF-5A Freedom Fighter kit (ref. K48020) as pre-ordable. Kinetic being closely related to Lucky Model, such advertisement indicates usually a soon release from the kit.

  20. Hi all, built this Kinetic Kfir as part of the Dassault GB. I'd had the kit for a while but it sat in the stash as I'd heard some stories about Kinetic kits but I'm glad I had a go at it as it turned out to be quite a nice kit. The WIP can be found here: Overall this was an enjoyable build, had a few fit issues most notably the intakes and the fuselage join at the tail but nothing too bad. My biggest criticism would be how vague the instructions are at times, the undercarriage was especially vague and as this kit can be built as a C.2 or C.7 some diagrams were quite cluttered with a plethora of options and different variant specific parts. Nevertheless though this was a fun build and I can definitely see myself building more in the future. Kinetic's decision to have Isradecal design the decals was a great move and the kit options are all fantastic, though I used some spare decals to build this as a Smashing Parrot Kfir. Painted with Vallejo acrylics and a Vallejo panel line wash, stencils are from the kit with the squadron insignia and numbers being Isradecal. Here are the photos: And it's also just turned a year since I built my first kit, a Kfir as it turns out! Thanks for looking in!
  21. Hi all, I did intend on building a few Mirages for this GB but ended up not building anything for a while- recently finished a skyhawk and built a mustang for the blitzbuild so I'm back in the swing of things. Was planning on building this for my Israeli Adventure project but its just sat in the stash for a while now, I'm wanting to build it so thought why not try and get something done for this GB. I'll be building this in the air superiority grey scheme (should be faster than the desert scheme), the kit decals were created with input from Isradecal so look fantastic. I do have a fair few spare decals and numbers so I'm leaning toward building this as a Smashing Parrot Squadron Kfir. Made a start today, painted the cockpit and assembled the wings and intakes- some minor difficulties with fit, definitely going to be some filler needed with this kit but nothing too bad...yet. Thanks for looking in!
  22. I bought this when it first came out so thought I should get around to building it. Although it looks great int he box, there are some issues to watch out for. The mold slip means every part needs to be cleaned up, especially mating surfaces. The nose cone is too wide for the fuselage. I fixed this by sanding down the mating surfaces of the nose cone parts, the fit you see in the kit has not been touched at all with sand paper. Thinning down the mating surfaces of the wing just behind the trailing edge gives a much better fit. Test fitting the air intake covers will reduce the amount of filling and sanding you will need to do. It's also worth cutting off the locating pins on the drop tanks for a better fit and making all attachment holes of the bombs and drop tanks larger, otherwise they won't fit the locating pins. Decals are very nice, I did apply over 100 stencils, but they gave no trouble at all. Everything is OOB, but I decided to try and use the RBF tags I bought. They are nice, but fiddly; there is a very small photo etch pin in the top of each, you can barely see it....I can barely see it but I know they are there!
  23. My entry, the most modern subject in my stash, a MQ-9 Predator. Going OOB with the Texas ANG example because as prints show there are a lot of web images of this one, including with live munitions. Hoping that with no pit I can finish this during this GB and a F-4 in Classic Japan GB at roughly the same time. Chris
  24. 1/72 MQ-9 Predator Completed in current Reconnaissance and Scouting GB Kinetic kit and decals; no aftermarket. Main paint Humbrol enamels, some Tamiya acrylics for tyres and stores. W&N matt varnish. Finished as current-ish Texas ANG 147 ATKW fully loaded with LGBs and Hellfires as seen in photos of live fire exercise. Shown with a F-16B from Oregon ANGB in 1991 for comparison. WIP at link: Chris
  25. Completed the Kinetic S-2. It was actually boxed as a Mirage 2000 so imagine my surprise when I arrived home.... An ok kit built OOB with the exception of seatbelts, spotlight and external wing braces. The decals were very thin and I gave up trying to use them so painted my own markings for VS-30 and used decals from the spares box. Enjoy.
