  1. Junkers F.13 Conversion Set (MX 7222.07) 1:72 Master-X The Junkers F.13 was an all-metal, cantilever wing monoplane that was one of the most advance aircraft in the world when it first flew in June 1919. It was in production for 13 years - an incredible feat given the stupendous pace of aeronautical development throughout the early twentieth century. The aircraft was built around an aluminium alloy frame, with stressed skin in the classic Junkers style. The cockpit was only semi-enclosed, but the passenger compartment, which was fitted out to accommodate four people, was fully enclosed and heated. Over 322 examples were produced, with a great many different power plants finding their way into the airframe. This conversion set from Master-X is designed for the Revell kit - a stone cold classic from the German firm's 1990s purple patch. In the plastic bag, you get a replacement upper fuselage, horizontal and vertical tails, ailerons, wheels, propellor and lower cowling. The standard of casting is high and the rendering of the surface details means it will be a good match for the original kit. Of course the parts will need to be cleaned up prior to assembly, but from what I've seen, I wouldn't expect construction will present too many difficulties. Decals are included for the intended subject, an example used by the Eurasia Aviation Corporation in China in 1931. The colour scheme is a striking black, red and aluminium number. Conclusion This is a well-designed and nicely made conversion set which opens up new possibilities for Revell's excellent kit. The inclusion of decals is a necessity given the nature of the conversion, but one which makes this into a nice little project. An absolute must for fans of interwar aviation.

  2. Here is my latest bench blocker, My second Revel FAA Corsair in 1;72 scale. In a break with tradition and against all common decency I have not posted the obligatory sprue shots or any of the decal set or the Eduard Zoom fret, mainly because I didn't take any. Having built one already I was aware of the immediate action remedy's on the wings, mainly fill the wing tip join gaps, fill the lights on the underside of the port wing and create another light and chop out the wingtip lights. I also fitted the stall vane outboard of the guns on the starboard wing. The radiators need a bit of shimming to fit nicely...…. The seat got some detail and the armour got some bolts and a new head rest.....Oh and the prop got reworked too. I made up the two fuselage vents side vents, these get cut down severely, and I gave the cowling a good reaming...... A bit of a rescribe and a shot of primer followed by Zinc chromate and gloss coat then Flory wash...……. Eduard Zoom...…………..frustrating as hell! This is during the build...………..before the really delicate and quite frankly invisible stuff! Pilots seat and bulkhead ready to go...…….. The lump all buttoned up...……. More of the Zoom set, the throttle quadrant was very flimsy, so I filled it with GatorsGrip which worked a treat! Parts of the Under Carriage were not great, they were a bit short, so I slid a thin length of brass tube inside another and cut two piston like lengths, using the original parts as a guide, I drilled a hole to accept the thicker end in the UC leg and put a dab of CA there then when I fitted the gear I extended the inner tube and CA`d the other end! That went in the win column! There was a bit of "Handbags" on here earlier in the week regarding FAA Corsairs and bombs, I wouldn't let it lie as usual, but it all got sorted, as usual members had all the relevant gen, the upshot is I need a couple of british bomb carriers, I still dont know weather they`ll go on this kite or not yet, it means getting a Swordfish for the relevant parts which will hold up the build...……………….. But there is another Corsair in the stash she`ll be a really late bird ! Radiator doors scribed and a shot of primer...…………… The lights on the starboard wing have been drilled out, they will get acrylic crystal treatment, the new port wing light will get a punched clear plastic lens. Armoured windscreen primed...…………. Bomb fairings after a scribe...…………...I have seen fots of these missing altogether and the hole plated over, or in place with the fittings for ordnance or tanks covered with the curved fairing as they are now. Canopy masked Here`s the Prop main wheels and the modified tail gear...……. all ready for the next sesh! Ta for lookin` no "G" Granto
  3. I`m got my second Revel FAA Corsair On the bench, having been through all the corsair related stuff on here and given myself square eyes searching for relevant images I cant find any real detail regarding the ejector fittings for FAA BPF Corsairs, I have a couple of nice British Bombs, since I read that the FAA used British rather than US Ordnance, from an Airfix Tiffy which look suitable, however the "gubbins" from under the Tiffy wings for hanging them is much longer front to rear than the relevant fittings under the Corsair wings. Now I know that Revel have supplied the wrong drop tanks, since FAA Corsairs used the Brewster centre line one not the much later smaller pair often seen on US aircraft, but the pylons, for want of a better name are correct to a degree. Anyone got any polite suggestions? Granto
  4. 1/32 Revell F4U Corsair is done Im doing for a customer and he want no decals, he will add his custom ones later And the color is his own choice Hope you guys like my latest work https://flic.kr/p/2etHxeX https://flic.kr/p/2fN5CrE https://flic.kr/p/TJp1fG https://flic.kr/p/2eEV7Rs https://flic.kr/p/TJp1nA https://flic.kr/p/2fN5CGQ
  5. Revell's Boeing 707 kit has also many decades on its shoulders and had countless re-releases over the years. It represents more a 707-100 but Revell marketed it as AWACS,Air Tanker and in various Airline markings that are mostly 707-300 versions. They even released it as a United Boeing 720 ! Despite that,it is a nice little kit that can build up into a model that looks like a 707,although the fit is not the best. The worst part are the wing halves.For some unknown reason,Revell decided to split the wings right through the flaps which makes it very difficult to fill and sand the seam without erasing the engraved lines. For my build I used the AWACS kit,as I was unable to find the original Lufthansa boxing for a reasonable price. I wanted to build it in the Lufthansa scheme as a childhood reminder of mine. The Revell 707 was amongst my very first attempts as a kid in airliner modelling.The result was less than stellar but I had lots of joyful playtime with it back then. This time of course,I wanted to build it properly,so that the Revell Lufthansa 707 will finally find its deseved place in my collection. Its very difficult to find decal sets that actually match the Revell kit,and in my strive to rebuild it mostly out of the box,I had to find an original Revell Lufthansa decal set. Luckily I was able to track an almost pristine set down on ebay. The cabin windows are printed on the blu stripe but they are not very straight aligned.I used new windows from a 707 detail set that i had to apply individually to cover the kits ones. The cabin doors are taken from an Airfix 727 set and the rest comes from the detail set or spares. Painted entirely with Revell enamels, Enjoy
  6. Hi all...... I've got two of these old kits at home, and I'm planning to build one of them as a Spanish Navy example. AFAIK, Spain received both Sikorsky and Westland made machines, under the MAP program. Now the questions: Given the fact of its age, is it an accurate kit???? Not talking about detail or lack of it, but about general shape. The interior comes absolutely empty, except for some spurious cockpit detail, raised rivets (golf balls, in 1/48 scale), and a set of very weird looking wheels....So a complete sanding and rescribing will be mandatory, as well as some scratchbuilding for the cockpit and the starboard fuselage crane. So far, i've just got a few pics of the "Pepo", as they were nicknamed in Spain.... The tail boom is absolutely straight, and I've seen some models had a "twisted" tail...I suppose that's right for early H19B models, but not sure about it....the "twisted" tail was introduced from the H19D onwards, I think....It's a question of choosing a straight tail example, or doing major surgery..... Any info will be very helpful.... A late friend of mine used to say: "Pepos don't really fly.....they're so ugly that Earth repels them". TIA and best regards from Tenerife....
  7. Eurofighter TYPHOON (Twin seater) Revell 1:144 The Eurofighter EF2000 Typhoon started out as the EAP programme in the 1970s engineered entirely by BAe, but was later joined by a number of international partners due to an allegedly common requirement, with the partnership changing over time to end up with Britain, Germany, Spain and Italy remaining, while France went their own way with the Aerodynamics data to create the Rafale, which has a similar general arrangement. Delays and cost overruns seem to be a common factor in modern military procurement, and the Typhoon suffered many, resulting in the Germans taking delivery of the first airframe in 2003, Italy in 2005 and the UK in 2007. Operational airframes have since taken part in operations in Libya and under Italy's control in Albania. After the British Typhoons were initially ordered without guns, then with guns but without ammo, which was again overturned in due course, they were grounded in 2011 due to a lack of spares, which required the RAF to cannibalise grounded airframes to keep flying. The two-seat variant is used for training and conversion, although it is capable of going to war if needs required it, having all the systems in place to make it viable. The Tiffie is a great airshow crowd pleaser due to its agility at all speeds, and the impressive tearing roar of its twin EF2000 jet engines that propel it forwards with an impressive 20,000lbf of power per engine with reheat engaged. The Kit Revell have already given us Two Seat Eurofighter Typhoon in 1/32, 1/48, and 1/72; now its time for this excellent kit to be available to the 1/144 scale modeller. The kit arrives in a standard open end Revell Box (same size as their 1/72 Spitfire sized kits), inside you get 5 sprues of grey plastic and one small clear sprue. The parts are well formed with great detail for this scale. There is no flash on the parts that I can see. Construction starts with the cockpit, and as this is the two seater you get two. As the kit is obviously set up for both a single & double seater you do have to make both cockpit tubs. They are not difficult though. There is an instrument panel, control column and ejection seat to add to each. The seat can not be described as the best, and only bears a passing resemblance to an MB.16 even in this scale. All detail on the instrument panels and side consoles are provided as decals. Once the cockpit tubs are assembled, they are glued into the fuselage, and then the fuselage halves can then be joined up to complete the top section of the main fuselage. The next step is to install into the now completed top fuselage, the large plate section which forms the roof of the engine intakes. The lower section of the intakes can then be placed inside the lower fuselage section. This can then be joined to the top section to complete the main fuselage. The engine exhausts can then be attached to the completed main fuselage, as can the main wings which are single parts in this scale. The radar dome and pirate sensor (If building the RAF version) are then added, along with the console which separates the two cockpits. The aircraft spine is then added next, along with the front canards. The next steps involve flipping the model upside down and concentrating on the underside. The main gear, front gear and gear doors are all added at this stage. They appear quite fine in the sprue and care will need to be taken. Even though no stand is included the gear doors can be placed in the closed positions with the removal of a couple of mounting tabs. The last section involves the addition of the underwing pylons and flap actuators. Revel have done a good job here in providing the modeller with an array of weapons to fit, even if they have the names wrong (AIM-7L Sidewinder anyone?). You are provided with 2 x Fuel tanks, 4 x AMRAAM, 2 x AIM-9L Sidewinders, 2 x IRIS-T, 2 x Tarus Pods and 2 x Stormshadows. Once you have fitted your Eurofighter out the last thing to do is add the canopy and your model is complete. Canopy The canopy is clear and molded with no flaws. It can be posed open or closed as needed. Decals The decals are printed in Italy for Revell and its no surprise in this scale that the sheet is small. It is however packed with markings & stencils for both the airframe and the multitude of weapons supplied in the kit. It is good the weapons markings are there as a lot of manufactures miss these out. Decals are supplied for two aircraft. Typhoon T.3 of No.3 Sqn Royal Air Force, RAF Coningsby 2013. Eurofighter Jagdbombergeschwader 31, Luftwaffe, Norvenich, 2009 Colour call outs are given in Revell colours colourmixes. Its worth noting that the German aircraft have the radome and dielectric panels in the same colour as the RAF & Italian machines (British Colours) as these were moulded in that colour. Not as per the Revel instructions. Conclusion This should make upto a good looking model of the Eurofighter Typhoon. Its good to see a small scale kit packed with detail and weapons. Overall highly recommended. Revell model kits are available from all good toy and model retailers. For further information visit
  8. Hi Everyone, Here is my biggest completed project of 2014 so far. This is completed build number 8 for 2014. This is a Revell Red Arrows Hawk T.1A painted using Humbrol Acrylic Signal Red paint. I enjoyed this build as it was one of the most challenging for a long time. Anyway onto the pictures. I have just realised whilst looking at these photos that I have left the fuselage serial numbers off, so will have to correct that. Anyway comments welcome. Thanks as always for looking. Rick
