  1. Completed today, Last entry for my Kosciuszko Squadron aircraft, unless someone knows of a 1/48 Spad 51. This is the Eduard Albatros D.III OEFFAG 253. Painted in Gunze colors and final coated with Mr Hobby Semi-Gloss. The decals are from a Polish supplier ,ModelMaker. These decals were fantastic. No bleed-through on the white, settled into panels and were not fragile in any way. I can't say enough about these decals. I did however ignore the recommendation for using a SWORL scheme on this aircraft. My sources say No SWORL. I used Cerami
  2. My build for this GB is this kit I found on Ebay while looking for something I'd never come across before. Should be an interesting build, I think. I've also got myself a PE set from Part in Poland, and a Yahu control panel as another option. Not too many parts, and they look pretty good. Not sure about the deep lines on the floats though...a bit "padded cell": Also not many decals for a 1/48 kit. 1930s aircraft had fewer markings though, I guess. Only one page of instructions, along with a black and white paintin
  3. 318 (Gdanski) Squadron was one of the last Polish squadrons to be formed & was named after the city of Gdansk, after the custom of naming fighter squadrons after cities & bomber squadrons after regions. It performed the vital, dangerous but unglamorous work of army cooperation in support of the 2nd Polish Army Corps in the middle east & Italy. It saw intense action at Monte Cassino. Image from Polish Squadrons Remembered. This is my fourth Eduard Spit IX, detail is great but the engineering is over complicated in some ares. I can't understand wh
  4. * "ORP Sokół (Polish: Falcon) was a U-class submarine (formerly HMS Urchin) built by Vickers-Armstrong at Barrow-in-Furness. Shortly after launching in September 1940 she was to be commissioned by the Royal Navy as HMS Urchin, but instead was leased to the Polish Navy due to a lack of experienced submarine crews.[citation needed] A sister boat to Dzik, both boats operated in the Mediterranean from Malta, where they became known as the 'Terrible Twins'." * 1/400 scale Mirage kit contains PE and resin upgrades. Only resin part is nose. And it does not fit well. So it needs alot of filling a
  5. Hi everybody, Just finished this nice seaplane. It is a Mirage Hobby kit that has been around for quite a while. I was in between making the land or the sea version, but in the end floats won. A simple kit, few parts count, but it does take some extra effort to build, especially the alignment of fuselage, support struts and floats. I used some photo-etched bits and pieces, and the Yahu instrument panel for Lublin R-XIII (funny brass color). A bit of scratch-build for lights and the cockpit. The model is finished with Tamiya and Akan paints, and Microscale Flat varnish. It has an im
  6. Hello folks. It's time for a mojo restoring, refreshing build. Pleae indulge me in a little background. Last year I started no less than 13 models, some made it to unfinished WIP threads here on BritModeller, some just quietly made it to my 'pending' pile. A couple made it to my 'DoD' zone, the Drawer of Doom . Yours truly found himself mainly bed-bound for the latter half of 2016, attempts to builld from the bed failed. Then, the old health thing improved a bit and kit building looked a distinct possibility. Yay . Then Mrs. T was off
  7. Well she finally here, seems like ages since I proposed this GB! Ok after a few minor issues I think I have this one all sorted….even if I have a complete F-16 now spare, more on that one later. For this build I plan to build a Polish F-16CJ in 2015 Tiger Meet colours….well Grey in a tiger pattern! I’ll be using Tamiya’s lovely F-16 for this build, …and yes I know this one is a Block 50 and I need a Block 52, that’s why I now have a second one (and I know I should have just built the second one instead….but that would be too easy for me!).
  8. Hullo, I was thinking of doing a Polish Air Force F-16C Block 52, and I was wondering if all single-seat Revell kits had everything I'd need in the box (aside from CFTs and the bulged gear doors)?
  9. Armoured Hussars Images of the 1st Polish Armoured Division 1939 - 47 Helion and Company This new book published by Helion and Company and written by Janusz Jarzembowski is a pictorial history of the unit from 1939 to 1947. The books one hundred and forty seven pages are packed full of period photographs, documents and diagrams. Each photograph is well captioned, usually including some background to the photo as well as detailing what they show. These photographs were collected by the authors Father during his time with the Polish Army and were stored in albums, un
  10. I managed to finish my Tamiya RAF Mustang III over the weekend. I used an Eduard photoetch set for the P-51B, Montex masks (which I found hard to remove and which left quite a lot of residue), and aftermarket Aeromaster decals which were far nicer than the overly thick Tamiya ones. I also used a set of resin Brassin wheels.
  11. Here is another one I've made after Messerschmitt. It's Spitfire Mk IXc from Polish Fighting Team (also known as Skalski's Circus). I decided that brush painting does not give me satisfying results so I've purchased an airbrush / compressor set. Model has been preshaded with black dry pastel (I found this method better for me than airbrushing along panel lines). It was then airbrushed with Vallejo Air paints. It was my first airbrush job ever and I had to do it twice on the bottom because I've applied too many layers and preshading disappeared. I've preshaded it again and painted it once mo
  12. Here is my latest one I just finished. Built for my brother in law as a present for his 40th birthday. He's obsessed with Warsaw Uprising of '44 so I've decided to make him B-24 Liberator from 1586 Special Duty Flight - a Polish squadron delivering supplies for the fighting Warsaw in August and September '44 from Brindisi, Italy. Front of the plane is a little inaccurate as the Liberators from that squadron didn't have front guns but I kinda liked this side window and the guns so I've kept them. Again, some Photoshop work to blend the diorama with the background photo. Tha
  13. Hello all, After a recent marathon build of a Williams Bros racer with loads of research and scratchbuilding I wanted to change tack and do something where all the detail comes ready-made in the kit box! I got the Trumpeter Mig-23 some time back with Xmas-present cash, and at a bargain price. I'd read good things about it, and seen some special builds (Arkady 72's on BM in particular) so pulled it from the (...one of the...) stash cupboards. There's a lot in the box, including many store options, surface detail is crisp and restrained, and there are some regular Polish AF decal options to
  14. Well, 2014 was a bit of a bust for me modelling-wise, as I didn't actually finish a single thing. Fortunately 2015 is shaping up to be a bit more productive (actually infinitely more, if you're a stickler for math.) Hot off the bench is the good old Tamiya Spitfire Mk.Vb, pretty much OOB. The only things I did to it were: - Refined the wing trailing edge a bit to fix the well known shape issue - Refined the shape of the nose a bit to make the rocker covers a bit less "broad shouldered" looking - Drilled out the canon barrels - Drilled out the exhausts And that's it. I didn't even add a s
  15. Hello. As a warm up before my target projects I wanted to finish started some time ago small Hawk. During the build I came up with an idea to do it as "What if?" Polish Jet Trainer. So I build it, painted and started to put on decals. And.. Well. I've lost polish markings from other model. Decided not to buy any additional decals, which is a shame actually. Anyways. As it suppose to be a training jet I wanted to give it a real shine like on the racing jets. Everything was ok until I decided to put final coat of Enamel Clear Laquer on. That ruined completely canopies I ended up having milky c
  16. Well I finally completed the Spitfire IXc from Pacific Coast Models. I'm now going to try doing a base and figure for it as well, but at least the aircraft is complete. And for saying it was such a beast of a kit to build, it's turned out quite nicely. Build pics are here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234934724-pacific-coast-models-132-spitfire-ixc/ Pics of the squadron aircraft suggest that they were late getting the IFF aerials, if they ever got them, although they had upgraded to VHF from HF radios. Hence no aerial wires anywhere. Some subtle exhaust staining...
  17. Hello I thought I'd do this group build. I recently discovered my local model shop and have been 3 times in the last few days. Today I bought this kit for £5 - and it's entirely complete. I was pretty suprised to be honest but happy with it. The only thing I want to do is get different decals - I hate having generic USSR decals so I might get some Polish ones or print my own. This is the last kit I'm doing entirely by hand I hope (airbrush should be coming soon) but the first I'm going to build extra detail for - including printing cockpit details, making some joysticks and such from spare p
  18. These images (amongst the thousands I have) were taken at the Polish Air Force Museum in Krakow in the Fall of 2002. It was a private tour (it helps to speak Polish) but I could use assistance in identifying the aircraft and if they are replicas. I spent most of my time on the WWII - Modern exhibits and picked the staff's brains for those. Aviatik C.III (is it a replica?) Regards,
  19. Morane Saulnier MoS.30E.1 1:48 Special Hobby History Morane Saulnier had designed and built two new fighter prototypes in 1917. These were the high wing MoS 27 and biplane MoS 28. The high wing MoS 27 was powered by a 9 cylinder Gnome Monosoupape 9Nb rotary engine and equipped with one machine gun. This allowed the aircraft to reach 8000m. The trials of the new fighter were carried out in the summer of 1917 and proved successful. One month later the MoS 29 equipped with two machine guns was trialled. Eventually both versions were ordered for production. The company gave the ty
  20. I recover this one from the bin of doom in this state Depainted with oven cleaner And refubrished it to this, it's far from perfect but it's better than it was before Hope you like it Saludos!
  21. Hi, some quick shots of a recently built Tamiya Mustang III, one of Horbaczewski´s mounts. The paints are a mix of Tamiya sprays, Humbrol and Citadell acrylics while the decals are a mix of Tamiya´s and AJ Press "Polish Mustang Units". I managed to destroy the correct decals for bombing missions so had to use the ones for Horbaczewski´s other Mustang though....
