  1. Hi again, This is my latest build. It's looking like my camera skills haven't improved one bit, I need to figure out a better location/setup to take photos of my models, sorry about that. Anyway, this is the build: Kit: Revell F-89D/J (No. 4568) Model: Northrop F-89D Scorpion (USAF) Scale: 1/48 Aftermarket: None Paints: Vallejo Model, Air & Metal Color Weathering: Oil paints, Flory Models Wash The kit was by no means perfect (it's from the early 90's) - nor was my build of the kit ( I can point out dozens of mistakes.
  2. As ESCI #8300/8301/Italeri #7031 Leopard 1A2 kits are impossible to find for years I'd like to know your opinion about the (similarly rare, though a bit cheaper) Airfix 1/76 Leopard #02306. Is it really so much smaller and so rubbish that putting it on the shelf among various Modelcollectl and Trumpeter 1/72 cold war tanks would make whole collection looking odd? Same question applies to the Airfix #01320 FV101 Scorpion as the ACE #72417 is also unobtainable for some time already. Would the Airfix (called 1:76) Scorpion really be too small and ostentatiously primitive when put along
  3. Just for a change, I thought I wouldn't do a helicopter for a group build (although there's a Puma waiting in the stash that I might start next!) - so my pick will be the Scorpion which I've had for quite a while without quite finding the inspiration to build. As far as I can see it dates back to 1975 (hence the 1973 decal options) so should be quite eligible. So, obligatory box and sprue shots: I probably won't do too much extra to it for this build, and I'll probably represent a fairly early Scorpion, and I have the Osprey book for reference, and photos of a few real ones, i
  4. Alvis FV101 Scorpion. Ex RAF Regiment example at Cosford. Pics mine.
  5. Good morning, after the Rafale something a bit older... the F-89 Scorpion was a typical member of the first generation of jets. Straight wings, subsonic, a very classical layout. The most noteworthy thing was the nuclear air to air missile AIR-2 "Genie", which was only tested on the Scorpion. Other aircraft could carry it as well, but never fired a live one. The kit is apparently good from what I read, some minor sink marks, a decal sheet slightly out of register and the horrible silver plastic, but nothing which can't be handled. Tanks were slightly bent, so I used the old trick to get the
  6. The latest - and last addition to my collection of 1/72 scale F-89 Scorpions - the Hobbycraft kit of the F-89H..... I wanted to show the GAR-1 Falcon missiles both retracted and extended - so I did the port pod with them deployed ready for firing, and the starboard side all closed up. I know they wouldn't be like that in real life - they are deployed symetrically on each side - but I am claiming 'artistic licence' - it is on display at an airshow and the extending mechanism has be overridden by the display crew. The 'clean
  7. Building the Academy 1/72nd F-89D scorpion and the paint instructions are... well, a bit pants. Trying to work out which shade of red to use for the 61st FIS 'Texan A' scheme - quick trawl of t'interweb shows some pictures with a dark humbrol 60 shade of red, while other pictures show more of a day-glo orange humbrol 209 shade of red. Any pointers which sort of red it should be ?
  8. HMS Scorpion Atlantic Models 1:350 HMS Scorpion was an S-class destroyer of the Royal Navy, the eleventh of her name, commissioned on 11 May 1943. Initially she was to be named Sentinel, but this was changed following the loss of the Dragonfly-class river gunboat Scorpion in the Bangka Strait in February 1942. Scorpion joined the 23rd Destroyer Flotilla of the Home Fleet at Scapa Flow on 11 May 1943 and was deployed on patrol in the North-western Approaches. On 20 October she joined an escort group of nine destroyers, a Norwegian corvette and two minesweepers which sailed to the Kola Inl
  9. Hi, calling this done. Built for a GB over on Flory Models. Academy kit SFTB Skylancer decals - 54th FIS, ADC USAF, Ellsworth AFB South Dakota, June 1958 AK Extreme Metal paints Kit went together ok with no real dramas other than me being an idiot and not putting enough nose weight in (hence the stormtrooper lending a hand!). Beast of an aeroplane! Thanks for looking FF UntitlUntitled byUntitled by bryn robinsUntitled by bryn robinson, on Flickron, on Flickr bryn robinson, on Flickred by bryn robinson, on Flickr
  10. Hello and welcome to build number 7 since getting back on the modeling horse. When I get a dozen done I'll stop counting. Sadly, at the rate I'm going it's that's not happening until the end of 2015! So what do we have here and why? After build 6, which was a satisfyingly dirty ARTF 'pink' Op Granby Jaguar GR1 in 1/72nd, (go see if you haven't. Shameless plug. : http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234953776-172-italeri-jaguar-gr1-op-granby-build-no6-and-counting/#entry1519222), I decided to do a shinier, cleaner and more colourful build, which would also hopefully be a
  11. F-89D/J Scorpion 1:72 Revell The F-89 stemmed from a USAAF technical specification for a jet to replace the P-61 Black Widow. Northrop originally submitted four different designs. Initially the XP-89 made its first flight in August 1948, with the first production being authorised in 1949. The F-89A had an AN/APG-33 radar with 6 x 20mm cannons. Two 300GL fuel tanks were permanently fitted and underwing racks could carry 16 x 5 rockets, or up to 3200lbs of bombs. The major production variant was to be the F-89D. This first flew in October 1951, and entered service in 1954. Here the USAF
