  1. Hi again, Soon after the Harrier comes this project that's been sitting gathering dust in the loft for many years now: Looks pretty familiar, the old Revell GR.1 kit which has now been not so much surpassed as smashed into the Stone Age by the new Italeri masterpiece. This will be a conversion to the F3 using Heritage Aviation's resin conversion set as a basis. Thought I'd better get on and do it before Italeri release an F3! (I hope!!) The set includes a limited decals set with those all-important walkway decals! Also using the white
  2. Why are Revell's F-16 two seater so hard to find and overpriced in the USA?
  3. Those who have followed my recent builds will know of my affinity with the 747. Whilst my current 747-436 tribute build is stalled (I'm still waiting for replacement decals), I thought I would turn my attention to some more modern 747 kits. Hopefully they will be far less hassle and go together much more easily than the venerable Revell 747-400! The only modern version of the 747 is the -800 variant. Both Revell and Zvezda have 1/144 versions of this aircraft, but which is best? There's only one way to find out - build them both! To start, here are the two boxes:
  4. Having recently finished the Mig-29, I was looking for something different and a little bigger. After a lot of deliberation I settled on the Trumpeter 1:35 Mi-17 and promptly ordered one before Easter...By Friday all I'd heard was that the order would be shipped when it was complete, which I took to mean they didn't actually have it in stock! The weekend was looking dire weather wise so I was going to go stir crazy with nothing to work on A lot of model shops shut at 1300 on Saturdays in Germany, but there's a shop in our nearest city(Trier) so having persuaded the missus we needed
  5. I managed to finish this RAF1:48 Eurofighter Typhoon today depicting a special scheme worn in 2014 'TP V'. The Revell base kit is pretty good, I added Eduard photo etch set along with resin intakes. Thanks for looking
  6. Time for the next project, and one with a bit of an overblown name. With that sort of name you'd expect some hugely overpowered convertible, maybe some sort of uprated Corvette. What you actually get with the Chevy SSR is a retro-styled convertible pick-up. This will be my first commercial vehicle (in the very loosest sense of the word) but don't expect me to do a weathered example - as with the rest of my display it will look qutie clean unless I make a real pig's ear of it. So, on with progress to date. I should say that so far it's just been spraying which I did over summer and
  7. Hi All I have been working in this for the last few months. I have always wanted to build a Target Tug . Being a brush painter made things interesting. I use Humbrol enamels and thin them slightly. The model is the Revell 1/48 Lockheed Ventura and I have made this as an RCAF GR-V TT from British Columbia. The scheme is very striking for obvious reasons and believe it was referred to as the Oxydol Special. The decals are from the excellent Aviaeology set and there is some fantastic information and photos, I do like their decal sets. I would also like to
  8. Hello everybody. First, many thanks to Brad for organizing this GB . Also, my thanks to TonyW, rob Lyttle and JOCKNEY whose enthusiasm for the Connie "helped" (you know what I mean, guys) me choose between two subjects I'm really fond of. So my entry is Revell's 1/144 Lockheed L.1049G Super Constellation in TWA markings. The most elegant airliner of all times IMHO (the Concorde ranking second). I decided on the TWA markings because they're intended for the "long nose" version I prefer and I will put the plane on a stand, gear up, to emphasize it's sleek silhouette. If I could
  9. Well making a start on this just for something different to do and because there is a very nice gentleman on this site @stevej60 who very kindly gave me some kits he was wanting to clear out from his stash He would not take anything for them even though I tried so I will be making a donation to the Northumberland and Borders Childhood Poverty charity to help out the underprivileged children in his name. Wanted a simple OOB build to do while waiting for some bits to arrive for another project and had been liking what I had saw that @ChrisSC has been building lately on here First
  10. Hi folk's my stalking for another subject has paid off and also taken me in another new modelling direction,build number two will be Revell's Space shuttle which is my first spacecraft subject since Airfix's Lunar module back in the sixties. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/revell-04544-space-shuttle-atlantis--237843 No idea what is in the box but it should be fun.£12 on e-bay secured it.
  11. Hello all! Up next is my all time fave aircraft - the F-15E. For this build, I`ll be doing a Lakenheath `mudhen` with nose art worn during operations against isis targets circa 2018. I will also build groundcrew, equipment & an R-11 fuel tanker to place around it.
  12. Mirage IIIE No.501 / 3-IB EC1/3 'Navarre' Nancy-Ochey, France, June 1985 This was built from the old Revell 1/72 kit from the 1970s. Not the best Mirage kit out there nowadays by a long way but it's been in the stash for so many years and it was time to build it. The inspiration was that Modeldecal sheet with those attractive EC1/3 anniversary markings. The French are usually very good at anniversary schemes, and though this one is quite simple it's also very French and looks good. The kit was basically OK. It gave the impression that it had been scaled down from t
  13. "Three, Two, One. Now!" -1:144 British Airways Concorde Hi everyone! As a bit of a distraction over Easter, in amongst studying, I thought I would have a go at a Revell 1:144 Concorde. My first encounter with the Revell tooling was a number of years ago, and whilst it built up quite nicely, there were plenty of areas where I felt I could do better. So this time around I brought along some extra "goodies" to help, namely the combined PE/resin set from Metallic Details, and the BraZ resin windscreen. The PE fret was relatively straightfo
  14. Couldn't decide which scheme to go for, so had no option but to build two. This is an AT-6 from 1980 which puts it right at the start of the Contra rebellion against the Sandinista government in Nicaragua. Based again on the Revell issue of the Heller kit, with decals by Blue Rider. I wrote this intro second, so less daft comments. Sorry This one has two tone olive wrap around camo, with the upper wing schemes being unknown so it looks like I have free reign to muck it up as I see fit. This is what I'm aiming for though: Going to be fun carv
  15. Sd.Kfz.9 FAMO Revell 1:72 The FAMO was a large, 18 ton half track powered by a 270hp, 11 litre Maybach petrol engine (fuel was obviously much cheaper in those days!). The Famo could tow loads of up to 28 tonnes, making it suitable for moving medium tanks such as the Panzer IV, and artillery pieces such as the 17cm Kanone 18, the 21cm Mörser 18 and the huge 24cm Kanone 3. The Kit The Revell Famo was first released in 2004 and has been periodically released since that date which shows it must be a good seller. The 2015 boxing comes with new decals.The kit is made up of 6 sprues of beige
  16. "Three, Two, One. Now!" 1:144 Revell Concorde (British Airways) Hi everyone! After a pretty hectic start to 2021, I've now got a little bit of time to spend on modelling. My attention has been drawn to the majestic swan of the skies, Concorde, for the past few months. Unfortunately the 1:72 kits have been just outside of what I'd be prepared to pay for the kit (and I gather that the kit requires a lot of work too)- so why not get a smaller Concorde and use the money saved to get some extra PE/resin? I had toyed with the idea of modelli
  17. This was a shocker... I was aware this Revell kit had its issues, but it fought me all the way... despite that quite happy with the final look (from a distance).. despite my ineptitude to get the fuel tank fins on the right way round (too late now to do anything about that).. She's been enhanced with a resin cockpit and a few other bits and bobs off the pylons.
  18. I started this kit about two years ago and have seen various fellow modellers experiencing copious grief with the tracks. Even YouTube experts seem to finish up with gaps. I've been putting off trying to finish the model for months now because of the tracks issue. This is my first attempt at link & length tracks (A Tiger II is probably not the best place to start) I don't really want gaps if I can avoid them............. I've completed the wheels and cemented the idlers in place leaving the sprockets free as per some advice I found on t'internet. (This was be
  19. Hi friends My fingers are itchy for another F-86 Sabre. I want build a Revell/ Hasegawa Canadair CL-13B Mk.6 Sabre in camouflage scheme of the 2./Jagdgeschwader 71 ,,Richthofen,, stationed in Ahlhorn near to Oldenburg 1962. But first i want ask the Sabre experts here. Can i build this model out of the box, except the aftermarket stuff as what i show here on the pictures? Or do i have to improve something more? Is the Aftermarket material shown right for a german version? Thanks
  20. The build was filled with enthusiasm from the start. I have a big heart for the Tornado and so many great schemes to choose. Things started to feel heavy though before the paint was applied. Anyone who has built this kit knows the pitfalls. Because of the shape of the aircraft, fuselage in particular, knows the moulding limitations in manufacturing the kit. Pressing on, little things seemed to go wrong for me but I wanted to continue and not leave it for that shelf of you know where. Vallejo Air paint and Eurodecals with India Ink accenting of the panel lines. A slight deviat
  21. I'm starting this build thread as a tribute to my Uncle, Sgt P C Brown.(later promoted to W/O 2 ) I only recently found out some detailed information about his wartime RAF service. The key to unlock the records was his middle name. I found his record card in the National Archives after my late father told me his middle name was "CORIN". This build thread i've decided to start up as a WIP. It's the Revell 1:32 Hawker Typhoon V kit. The reason I chose this was that my uncle flew this type in March/April 1945 in Northern Germany. I'm intending to use the Hataka Paint
  22. I've got myself two of this kit, because I'm interested in building Construction Number 650 at two very different moments in its life. This aircraft was part of the Junkers Spitsbergen Expedition of 1923, registered as D-260. It spent the next decade knocking around Germany, Russia, Estonia and north Norway under various registrations, before ending up as the property of Nord-Norges Aero in 1932, registered as LN-ABH. Passengers were flown on sightseeing trips by Norway's famous aviatrix, Gidsken Jakobsen, until June 1934, when it "lost its engine" near Balest
  23. This is the old Revell kit build from the box, just with the addition of spares folder decals as I bough her second hand. A simple kit with minimal interior detail, but I did like the surface detail and it looks quite nice built up. I went hard with the weathering as these aircraft tended to get pretty filthy. Not a modern "uberkit" but still a nice build.
  24. After 6 months since I've started this model, finally today I've finished it! This was actually the first model I've put all my effort and decided to take it in a serious way until the end. During the whole process which you can find on this topic: I've learned so much. also from feedback from other members here. Some errors were made but I've also learned with them and I will try not to repeat them on the next models! I will leave you with the pictures of the finished product. Hope you all like it!
  25. This is my recent build of another Airbus. I had actually planned to finish it in the BA anniversary year but for some reason I had only a slow progress on this model as I chose other models to finish first. Well,now I finally managed to get this little Airbus over the finishing line. Not much to say about the kit and the build,as its the well known Revell A319 wirh British Airways and Germanwings markings. Troublefree build all around. The decals come from 26decals and worked great. The details come from the extensive Revell decal sheet. Paints used a
