  1. Serial number 4082 to be built using the Kinetic kit (and decals). Part of the appeal for this particular airframe is the fact that parts of the special livery vinyl overlays were lost en route from Poland to Orland - so I'm aiming to finish one side as it left Poland and the other as it arrived in Norway! As usual, Eduard cockpit etch and seat belts and I think there are some masks lurking around too: Back in a week or so, Mike
  2. Entry No.2 will be built from the Kinetic F-16DG/DJ Block 40/50 kit - originally purchased at a very good price as I wanted the CC sprues (Harm missiles + pods). When it arrived those sprues were no longer included and had been replaced by two MER + Cluster bomb sprues. However I've since managed to do a swap to get a Harm sprue. Although this kit only has parts for an F-16D, I can take the unused F-16C parts from my Polish C/D boxing and build this as 92-0920 in the (Two Bobs) 2015 special livery reflecting 50 years of Wild Weasel operations: As the decals i
  3. BAe Hawk T.2 (03852) 1:32 Revell Originally designed as a replacement to the Gnat advanced trainer by Hawker Siddeley, the Hawk first flew in 1974, and started life as a private venture, much like a number of other widely known and loved aircraft. It was designed from the beginning for the training arena with two seats, but the ability to carry offensive armament was also important both for weapons training, and for the improvement of export sales to developing nations that couldn't perhaps justify or afford a single-roled aircraft. It entered service

  6. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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.

  7. I've got a few kits in the nearly finished category and this one is the one I started most recently. Finished first probably because it was such an enjoyable build. Built out the box with Hataka Orange line paints.
  8. It was a strong rumour, now confirmed by R. Chung, the Kinetic boss himself, in ARC forums. After the Sea Harrier FRS.1 (link) & FA.2 (link), the two seat Harrier T.2/T.4/T.8 (link), Kinetic is quite logically to produce 1/48th Hawker Siddeley/BAe Harrier GR.1/GR.3 kits. So time to open a dedicated thread, I think. Source: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=287539&view=findpost&p=2798826 V.P.
  9. Completed yesterday & a tail sitter despite adding lots of Liquid Gravity in the nose. Not a great kit with a mix of sturdy & well moulded parts combined with a flexible fuselage around the wheel bays. Weapons are from the box & are chunky. Decals also from the kit, with many not mentioned in the instructions so I resorted to online searches and following other builds on here. Overall a frustrating build of what could, or should, be a simple kit. Edge

  12. For the 2001 Airshow at Leeuwarden AFB, F-16A (MLU) of the Dutch Air Force was painted with a special tail scheme depicting 323 Squadron's badge of Diane (the hunter). In latter years it has carried several other tail designs (most of which are available from Daco Products). The only photos I could find of this airframe from 2001 had rather boring loadouts but I did find an undated one where it has live GBU24s and AIM120s (though with a plain tail - so I've wielded my Modeller's Licence to produce this combination) It was bu
  13. Hi everyone, here is my recent completion for the Interceptors group build. It’s a Danish CF-104D made from kinetic’s 1/48 release and is OOB except for some (rubbish) decals that all silvered badly. Starboard side is going through a process of fixing that issue but Port side is shown here, with lesser but still present silvering and all. here’s the build thread: and it’s based on this airframe... And here with her older sister-
  14. Sooooooooo Not heard much from Quack for a bit Wonder what he's been up to Oh Lordy! It looks like he's been mashing a perfectly good Kinetic 1/48 Alpha Jet........poor thing...... Hope he's got a VERY good explanation for this...... Errrr, well, it's like this, y'see .......... I'd finished the 74 Sqn Phantom FGR.2 which I was quite pleased with - then looked around for summat else t'build. I've got a Revell 1/48 Tornado GR.4 which I want to finish as a Granby GR.1, but frankly it scares me a bit and it's likely
  15. Howdy, Something a little different from me. I'm not a huge fan of modern aircraft, but I'm a big fan of Australian Aboriginal art. This aircraft was painted to commemorate WO Leonard Victor Waters, a member of the Worimi people, and Australia's first indigenous aviator. WO Waters flew 95 combat missions with the RAAF in the southwest Pacific. On account of intense discrimination against Aboriginal peoples in post-war Australia, WO Waters was unable to find support for his efforts to launch an airline, and was not even allowed to practice as an automotive mechanic (even

  19. FMA IA 58 Pucará (K48078) 1:48 Kinetic Model via LuckyModel Originally named the Delfin in prototype stage, the Pucará is a indigenous ground-attack and COunter-INsurgency (COIN) aircraft developed by the Fábrica Militar de Aviones, Argentina’s main aircraft manufacturers. It was designed to operate from rough fields if necessary, and was powered by two turboprop engines in nacelles in the wings. That, coupled with the long landing gear legs gave it adequate ground clearance when armed, even on the aforementioned rough fields. If first flew at the end of the 60

  21. Hello friends Some of you may have been following my build report. Now it's time to hire it here at the RFI. It was different and was a lot of fun. So I am satisfied. I am open to constructive criticism.
  22. Perhaps I’m posting in the wrong spot - please move me along if this stuff belongs in the armour section, but I’ve always been very fond of these little support vehicles, and the collection’s filling up nicely. The NC-8A was built for a Miramar A-4 Mongoose diorama, the lovely little Tamiya Moto tug will go with a Late Corsair one day. The aftermarket companies are making some cracking accessories these days, the ALBAR is from Brengun and the chocks are Wheeliant iirc, amazing detail, the chocks actually slide along the bar and the ALBAR is articulated too. The Vel
  23. XV778 was delivered to the RAF in April 1970 as a GR1. It was converted to GR3 standard in the early 70s when it received the updated Mk103 Pegasus engine, before receiving the laser nose and tail RWR by 1977. This Harrier served in Belize and later took part in exercises in Norway during its time with 1 Sqn at Wittering. The Kinetic kit is absolutely fantastic, fitting together well and with great detail and superb decals. I’ve depicted the Harrier as an early GR3 pre laser nose. Huge thanks to @NG899 for the brilliant and very helpful extra info on the kit and the Harri
  24. Having just finished reviewing this new kit from Kinetic, which was sent to us by Lucky Model in HK. You can read the review here, and I'm afraid that I caved in last night and began building it I started with the cockpit, expecting to get the seats done before I went in for tea, but I ended up building the cockpit, the sidewalls, and many of the other assemblies glued together so that it will be ready for sanding and painting as appropriate. The cockpit goes together well, with enough parts to make for a detailed rendition, although I would have liked to have seen some decal
  25. Harrier GR.1/GR.3 2-in-1 (K48060) 1:48 Kinetic via Lucky Model The Harrier is an iconic (in the truest sense) example of what was possible when British Aviation was at its prime. It was a revolutionary design back in the 60s, and has seen many improvements and even a complete re-design in the shape of the Harrier II, which saw McDonnell Douglas get more heavily involved, giving the US Marines their much beloved AV-8B, and the British the Gr.5/7/9, all of which had new carbon-composite wings, massively upgraded avionics and improved versions of the doughty Pegasus
