  1. In hindsight a lot of work scratchbuilt interior, prop and undercarriage. New clear windows and homemade decals. But I think it’s turned into a great little model so worth it in the end
  2. Morning all, May I present my 2020 yearbook. Obviously it's been a mostly dreadful year in so many ways, but one positive I've taken away from it is a renaissance in my enthusiasm in modelling. I had rediscovered my mojo before lockdown hit, but being furloughed for two and half months, and subsequently working reduced hours has meant I've been able to dedicate so much spare time to the workbench. As such, I've managed 26 completions this year, a personal record since I got back into the hobby properly in 2008. I've found building to themes has helped maintain the enthusiasm; the 80th Ann
  3. Hallo again Here is my F-35B. The kit is from Kitty Hawk. Scale 1/48. The etched parts are from Dreammodel. These are the finest etched parts I ever worked with. Highly recommended. All masking was hand done. Happy modelling
  4. Hi All! This is my latest finished build in 1/144 scale. Why ”NOTSnik”? Because of the Sputnik. In 1956 US Navy Naval Ordnance Test Station was developing various unmanned vehicles. One of them being air launched vehicle propelled by motors from SUBROC antisubmarine missile. Following Sputnik launch this idea was successfully sold to high authorities as simple and low-cost way of achieving satelite orbits. Originally known as ”Project Pilot” it quickly gained nickname NOTSnik. Douglas F4D-1 Skyray was assigned as a carrier, effectively acting as missile ”first s
  5. Hello mates! Here is one of my Tiger Twins built 2004. These old pictures were on film and i apologize for the tarmac from the middle of Ural . That early dayglo VT-23 training Tiger 331 is converted with a selfmade short nose, IFR receptacle and no LEX as pictured in Detail and Scale. Don Hinton helped me a lot with great walkarounds shot by himself. Thanks, Don! Decals were custom printed by my Epson (RIP). It is an old kit, not with the resin nose Hasegawa added later on some. This resin nose is wrong (too short), because fuselage is sleeker from front LG on. Cheers
  6. I have always wanted to build the RMN Super Lynx. The Malaysian Navy owned 6 of these. They are of the 501 Squadron based in Lumut, Perak, Malaysia. Started this little project over the lock down period and voila it is now complete. As you can see, there have been many add ons, through scratch buildings. The base was additively manufactured (white pla) using Ender 5 pro. The frigate base was from coastalkits (bonded and blended with the base). The base kits were 1x HobbyBoss 1/72 Super Lynx (RN) and backed with a Mk88 (German Sea Lynx) to give me the 2 Sea Skuas/to create the fold
  7. Finally done. I see I started this around Christmas 2017, so it's been over three years in the making. There are lots of scratchbuilt mods and replacements, most of which are covered in the WIP, which can be found at: Just some are: Modified the main and tail rotor gearboxes and drives to more accurately represent their appearance Modified the attachments for the main rotor grips to give a more realistic appearance and provide a droop to the blades Removed the weird hump from the engine deck and scratched a tray in lieu Cut the engine up, placed joiners i
  8. @Hi All. Now the title may give this away but let me expand! I was driving home last night and thinking about FAA (Tony sea venom started this actually, so this is your fault Tony) and how many great subject there are and this made my thoughts turn to the tiny walrus's on my airfix HMS Belfast (that i haven't built).... this than made me think about a navy GB.... I cant remember on being done or put forward, but then i haven't been here that long. So the parameters of the GB: ANYTHING that has or is under the command of A NAVY....anywhere.... To
  9. Newbie here (to the forum that is). Signed up on the forum last year with the intentions of trying to spark the building again........but my lack of motivation over the past year or so has done me in. Modeling and Photography have been no existent. Woodworking has been a little here and there. Been playing a little World of Warships here and there and decided to get a kit, well actually a couple, and see if I can get motivated a bit. So I am going to be building this kit........guess it's a 1942 version. The kit instructions call out Mr Hobby Aqueous and Mr Co
  10. http://www.historichelicopters.com Take a look at the link XT761 ground running first time in 32 years. Fab stuff....not a sea king but close
  11. Hallo again This is Helldiver from ACC. With some etched parts from Eduard and masks from Montex, I did it. The ordinance is from aftermarket, but I had big troubles to get the HV rockets in a proper position on the wing. The key is the Wolfpack wing fold set. It is wonderful. Really a great design but not so easy to get along with it. This model was the star at our exhibition of: Naval Aviation at the IPMS-Austria model show in Vienna in 2014. Happy modelling
  12. The Barracuda Actually, it was the type of RAF a/c, which caught my attention early. No kit was available. At the beginning of my scale modeler’s second life, 25 years ago, the RAF was my focus. When Special Hobby released the High Tech version, so I wanted to build it. My wife got additionally the Mk. V and so a third kit of the early version shifted to me. Three kits I had. The target was the Tirpitz. By some asking, I got in contact with a person in New Zealand, whose father was part of the striking team. Therefore, I got access to operational data and original bomb loads. These models
  13. Hi guys, i am in need of a decent 1/48 US Navy "shooter" for an upcoming tomcat diorama. does anyone know where i can get just the one figure, or a set of deck crew
  14. ...and here I go with my recently finished Corsair, from HobbyBoss. Really great model kit ( but some exaggeration in the rivets ) , and a great fit. Have added a PE set from Eduard, and some scratch for the cockpit and the tiny antennas from the nose. And for the heavy weathering I used oils. Really happy with this one Ricardo.
  15. This is the Hasegawa/Minicraft 1/72 P2V-7 Neptune boxing from 1972 or 1973. I bought this second hand along with the Eduard PE and Mask set for it. Other than adding the PE, this will be an OOB build of the generic post WWII U. S. version in Navy Blue. I am hoping this to be an easy build as I need one after a couple of trying ones. Here is the box art and collection of sprues loose in the box It appears the fuselage halves have been taken off of the sprues and for some reason the locating pins have been sanded flush. I wonder if original owner didn’t realize what they were and thoug
  16. Hi, Yet another newbie question Can somebody please point me to a place where I can find more information about the name, size and construction of this antenna type used by the Russian Navy, as shown below? I would like to scratch built it for my next project. In case you have more information about how to build it, that would be even more helpful. Thanks! Cristian
  17. 1/72 Airfix Lynx built as the HAS.3 special fit as flown from the type 22 frigate, HMS Brave; along with a Bedford Tactical Refueller in Royal Navy Scheme. Some decals were poorly printed but overall not a bad build.
  18. Hello Britmodellers; here's my new project, the probably well known 1 72 Hasegawa F4-J Phantom II. I'm moving out of my comfort zone here, as I normally build in 1 48 scale, but I got this kit at bargain price and I decided (after a very challenging RE2002 from Italeri) to try with this. I intended to build this OOB, but then I got tempted along the way ... and I ordered the Eduard Pre-painted zoom set for the cockpit (hasn't arrived yet). Plus I sourced an old Eduard PE detail set at my local shop (sorry, forgot to take pics before starting cutting out pieces..) So I started with a
  19. Ok, my first attempt here… maybe complete nonsense to show the British one of the most British helicopters. But I'll give it a try. Part of Italeri's Falkland's war anniversary kit was this Westland Wessex HU.5. Scale is obviously 1/72. The decals came out of 5 different sheets, two were old Modeldecal ones… Vallejo and Alclad provides the colors, Eduard the PE-parts. To be honest, it was the first time I used that amount of aftermarket parts. I hope You like it despite my very modest skills… and the fact, that details are presented here in more than t
  20. I don't do RFIs very often but I'm pleased that I've finished this and its turned out not too bad. A couple of Airfix 54mm figures, some scratch building and some parts from the spares drawers. A Royal Marine Sergeant, circa 1805
  21. First one off the bench for 2016, Airfix new tool Wildcat. I waited for the Starter set as I preferred the colour scheme and markings in this boxing. A lovely wee kit to put together, the only fiddly bit being the gear on the gear down option, but well thought out by Airfix. Paints were Tamiya White and dark sea grey (slightly lightened) for the main scheme, and Vallejo and Humbrol for the detail bits n pieces. Decals were straight out the box, there's only about 18 of them. Weathering was with Flory's dark grey wash, acrylic washes and then pastels after the first Matt coat, these were sea
  22. Finished this a few weeks ago but only just got arounbd to uploading pics. Not quite the correct grey (which was totally my fault) but still looks ok. An enjoyable build, so much so that i have also bought the F version.
  23. So I was in Westfield Shepherd's Bush and saw the modelzone corner in WH Smiths which I had forgotten was there! Needless to say I went in, had a look, and got the new tool AV8 which I had been intending to get around to building, being a big harrier fan. I liked the look of the Spanish scheme so ended up doing that. I used Tamiya XF-55 Deck Tan for the upper side and XF-2 Flat White for the underside. I brush painted using the thin paint-large brush-lots of coats method and I think it turned out OK. I went for a clean job to bring out the transfers which I thought were rather nice!
