  1. Hello all! As the Frog Squad Group Build draws to a close I need something else to pass the time. With one of the limited run AML P-36s in the stash I decided to give this a bash. Box contents as below: I may need to acquire some decals as the ones here aren’t in the best of condition. I plan on doing an RAF version in the US equivalents of the Temperate Land Scheme. This is my first proper multimedia kit so it should be a good learning experience! Any advice or comments please don’t hesitate! Cheers, Ash
  2. This build was completed as part of the P-40 STGB and was my first limited run, multimedia kit. WIP here: I picked this one up knowing all about its flaws as a kit, but with a bit of patience it can be turned into a lovely replica. Mine is modelled as an aircraft of No. 5 Squadron RAF, based in India in 1942. Decals were from LPS. Hairystick painted using Colourcoats enamels and given a panel wash using a Mig wash. Exhaust and gun staining was achieved using a pencil. Paint chipping was done with a relatively dry brush and revell acrylic aluminium. After I had finished the build I dropped it... so if you look closely you will notice on the left hand side a piece of the undercarriage fairing is missing as well as the undercarriage being wonky... Cheers Ash
  3. French H75C-1, has been restored to flying condition by The Fighter Collection at Duxford, United Kingdom. It is flown in French camouflage with markings on either side, for the same example (n°82) at two different periods in its career. Pics by Mark Mills Pics by Martin Lawrence
  4. While plugging away on other recent bigger projects, I've been spending some time working on an old 1/72 scale Monogram P-36. I thought it might be interesting to not just mention that aircraft, but some of the other, related builds done with the same kit over the years. I'll begin with a plain old out-of-the-box, kit decals and no-mods build I did many years ago. Out of the box, you actually get a P-36C. Mine looks like this, I think, painted with Metallizer, but I can't remember for sure: There you go, just a clean, simple out-of-the-box build. Of course, there are other things you can do with the kit. With a little hacking and slashing and a little plastic card, you can make a passable XP-40 from it. Mine was also done eons ago, with spare bin decals and Floquil Old Silver, as was the standard in those days. Also fairly standard back then, was that when you had chopped and sanded a conversion to the death, you normally didn't bother with re-scribing lines, etc. That is a more modern convention. Anyway, here's my old P-36 conversion to an XP-40, done much the same way that Curtiss did on the real thing: She's not all high-tech and modern, but I'm proud to have her in the collection. Speaking of High-tech and modern, here's my newest addition. By dint of removing the wing guns and filling in the ejector chutes (and leaving off the cartridge collector boxes), and adding a different style antenna, you can come up with a P-36A version out of the same box. Mine is painted with MM enamels, and Alclad II metallic and gold colors. Various stripes are decals from the spares box. I have added the Starfighter P-36 upgrade, featuring engine, cockpit and wheel wells. I have also opened the cowl flaps, which ended up being such a major work that I wish I had documented it! Done in the markings of the 18 Pursuit from Hawaii, I used two sets of kit decals to make the numbers and letters, adding an extra leg to the "P" to get an "R" for instance. The unit emblem was from a Starfighter I think P-12E set of decals IIRC. Anyway, here's my high-tech and modern P-36A: Please forgive the variations in pictures, as I am experimenting with the camera... And, finally, all three together: See boys and girls, what fun you can have with a few boxes of P-36 on a rainy day? Ed

  6. Time to start another GB. My entry for the Less than a Tenner Group Build will be the SMER Curtiss P-36, 1/72 scale, in the colours of Hærens Flyvevåpen (later RNoAF) in the spring of 1940. It's actually a sort of Whif but more about that later. I will build it without any extras except for maybe homemade decals or paintmasks. Ok, the pictures: "Flashy" sprue.. This is the colour scheme I will be using. Just have to wait til the start is announced.
