  1. Hi everyone, My next project will be a GWH 1/48 T-33 in a scheme similar to below image. The plan is to practice the faded dayglo look, so this is the challenge. The goal is to achieve similar effects to a posting here on britmodeller from a while back, although this will be a hard act to follow. I will give it a shot nonetheless. I am referring to this build: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235050709-mrc-gallery-sikorsky-hh-34g-148-german-navy/&tab=comments#comment-3266318 I will be using the GWH kit.
  2. Hi, Please find my latest completion, the 1/48 GWH T-33 in RNLAF markings. For those interested....... Below is the link to the WIP thread, discussing the build. Made some picks with canopy open and canopy closed. Hope you like it. Just wondering what 50's/60's Cold War subjects are still missing from the c
  3. Sword is to re-release its 1/72nd Shooting Star kit - ref. SW72105 - RF-80C "over Korea" - ref. SW72106 - P-80A/B Sources: http://swordmodels.cz/cs/home/123-sw72105-rf-80a-over-korea.html http://swordmodels.cz/cs/home/124-sw72106-p-80ab-.html V.P.
  4. If I may, this seems like a good time to build this. What do you mean, 'tidy your room'? That's time I could spend building. Nice bits. A fair bit for flash, some of it a bit thick, such as that around the fin. But, lovely resin wheel well and seat. Plastic is cut:
  5. Naval T-Birds (7012) 1:72 Iliad Design Iliad have sent us some of their latest releases, this one being for T-33 trainers used by the US Navy & Marine Corps. The Navy designated the T-33 the TO-2 which changed to the TV-2, now this is nt to be confused with the Navalised T-33 the T2V SeaStar The USN & USMC used the TV-2 in the training role, as hacks; and also as colourful drone controllers. Arriving in a ziplok bag, each set has a set of profiles as the cover page, with the decal sheet visible on the flipside so you can readily see what you'
  6. Seen at the 55th All Japan Model Hobby Show 2015, (Pit Road stand?) a new variant from the Great Wall Hobby 1/48th Eagle kit, the McDonnell Douglas F-15I "Ra'am" - ref. L4816. Topic here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234989178-55th-all-japan-model-hobby-show/ And behind in the picture... Some T-33 T-Bird/Shooting Star CADs. Next 1/48th GWH kit or family of kits? To be followed. Source: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1206169876076618.1073741833.275708712456077&type=3 V.P.

  8. Based at Suwon (K-13) during the Korean War in 1952, "Evil Eye Fleagle" was a Lockheed F-80C Shooting Star serial 49-547 assigned to the 36th FBS (Fighter Bomber Squadron) under the 8th FBG (Fighter Bomber Group). The Lockheed Shooting Star was a first generation jet and as the Korean war progressed the type struggled against the MiG-15 however performed sterling service in the bomber role in a very harsh environment. This is the HobbyBoss 1/48th kit of the F-80C, it can be built as "Evil Eye Fleagle" or the equally well-known "Saggin Dragon". I chose the first aircraft as it was
  9. Hi all, Seeking a bit of advice from anyone who knows. I want to build an F-80 in 1/72 and the choice that I have is either the Airfix kit or to bodge an Airfix nose on to a Sword RF-80. Having matched the two up their are very clear differences, apart from the obvious (RF- nose ). Any ideas which is best to go for? I am tempted to think the Airfix is better but I'd bow to the collective knowledge out there. Thanks. Martin
  10. Well 'ere 'tis Airfix F80 Shooting star, very average but its kinda finished...was going to put it on a wire stalk over a picture of the 5o something parallel but meh....maybe later and anyway the sloppy link is not present!
  11. Hey Everyone! Here's my latest video, a simple film that shows how to mask some straightforward shapes on a model aircraft. It's not groundbreaking as such, but will show you how I do things for Model Airplane International projects and in particular, the very new Great Wall Hobby T-33 Shooting Star, which I will show you once complete in a week or so's time. I hope that you like it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2tyki3A5zE
  12. Hey all Soon I'm going to be building the Hobby Boss 1/48 F-80C Shooting Star as "Evil Eye Fleagle" with the big shark mouth as seen over Korea. The kit provides the "P-38 Style" and "Misawa" wing tip tanks as well as the P-51 looking underwing tanks. The question I have is; did the F-80 have a third style of wing tip tank? Looking I pictures I see tanks that are slimmer than the "P-38" style, but shorter than the "Misawa" style. These are the "P-38" Style Tanks: These are the "Misawa" style tanks: And here are the ones in question: Could these be some sort of shortened version
  13. As a spinoff of my "[more] accurate T-33" attempt in the "Lesser Built Air Forces" group build, I'm also going to be converting Hobbycraft T-33 and probably Monogram F-80 parts to make the first prototype, now enshrined in the National Air & Space Museum. It'll probably be a week or two before things really start happening, but I think I've got the answers I needed (and haven't thought of the next questions yet!) I'm looking forward to this one, and I've had some great help already, most notably Tommy Thomason (see post 3 below, and see his link) so far, but others to join the roll of ho
  14. OMG, I'm doing a plane and it's part of our Group Saturday Build Club so I'll only be working on it for 4 hours every other Saturday so, this should be interesting as there are technically only 4 more Build Saturdays between now and the end of this GB, that's 16 hours (because if they happen to clash with Club Night, also a Saturday, we don't have them!). A few of the Club members get together to build without interruption from family etc and it goes quite well. Now, some will say the kit is wrong, it needs this or that but this will be strictly 'out the box' Early construction seems to
  15. 1/48th Lockheed F-80C Shooting Star by HobbyBoss in 2013 - catalogue ref.81725 and also - but not in the new catalogue - a F-80A - ref.81723 and a RF-80A - ref.81724(?) Source: http://scalemodels.ru/modules/news/img_5748_1358082281_fe7282025aafa40f1fabea15ab64034f79f0190e.jpg.html V.P.
  16. There's a new batch of Hobby Boss kits now available. In 1/48 there's a Recce version of the P-80 Shooting Star, the F-84F Thunderstreak, and an A6-A Intruder. In 1/72 there's an easy build A6M2 Zero. If anyone wants any of them, let me know, we'll have the Shooting Star and Thunderstreak in stock tomorrow and can get more in for next week, is more people want them. thanks Mike
