  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

  4. Special Hobby is to release a 1/32nd Lockheed T-33 T-Bird kit (rebox Czech Model kit http://www.hyperscale.com/2010/reviews/kits/czech3203reviewbg_1.htm). The first boxing subject will be the T-33 over Europe. The decals are said in design. More details soon.

  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.
  7. Before I started on my Hobbycraft 1/48 RT-33A, i was wondering if any company had plans/aspirations to do a new tool 1/48 T-33A, or even better yet (for me) an RT-33A? I did a search on the forums, but maybe my "search-fu" is weak. Larry
  8. Using any viewpoint you choose the T-33 is one of the most important planes in whole aviation history. Being the most numerous variant of the most advanced WW2 jet (P-80) and the most numerous jet trainer of the Western World it is the "must have" in any aircraft model collection. Nevertheless I cannot find the answers for several questions that have arisen during the preparations to build a USAF machine: Did any T-33s used in the Korean War sport OD uppersurfaces (like the RF-80) and yellow lettering or overall pale grey camo (like early P-80A/Bs) ? Were there any USAF T-33s used

  11. Hi all, Here is the third and last (for now) AT-33A of my current series of Latin T-birds. Like my previous Uruguayan and Dominican builds she is the excellent Platz kit. As I said previously, this kit goes together perfectly with little filling or fit issues. She is built as “TF-808”, an AT-33A and operated by the Escuadron de Combate 2112, Fuerza Aerea Ecuatoriana (Ecuadorian Air Force) based at Taura Air Base near Guayaquil. The Ecuadorians acquired 36 T-33s from 1956 onwards. Eventually the remaining machines were camouflaged and finally retired in 1995. Like all my builds I try
  12. Here is the second in my line of Latin T-birds. I still have two Platz T-33s in the pile! As you can see she is depicted as “3304” of the Fuerza Aerea Dominicana (Dominican Air Force), and was one of four machines acquired in 1956 and operated briefly (until 1958) by that force. The US Mission withdrew them in 1958 and they were supplied to Brasil. The Dominicans went through the same again in 1967 when they acquired two ex-USAF machines and those, too, were withdrawn by the US for similar reasons. With the FAD during the time of my model they were operated by the Escuadron Ramfis from Tr
  13. Hi All, Finally, I managed to complete the first model for this whole year. Somehow finding time for hobby was especially complex. Hopefully I will now gain some speed and would be up to my building plans next year And it looks like there has been a lack of T-birds recently on this forum so here is another one! This time it’s Canadair CT-133 Silver Star in its earliest version of RCAF markings. Model is built from Sword kit combined with excellent Leading Edge decals. Sword kit requires some effort to allow for clean assembly. The worst thing in Sword’s kit
  14. The NT-33A, USAF s/n 51-4120, was a variable stability in-flight simulator. It was owned by the Air Force Flight Dynamics Laboratory and, later, the Air Force Research Laboratory. The aircraft was maintained and operated by Calspan Corporation of Buffalo New York, under contract to the USAF. This T-33A was modified in the late 1950s for flight controls investigations and simulating the flight characteristics of other aircraft designs. Schedule permitting, the aircraft was sometimes made available for contractor or foreign government evaluations, usually to correct anomalies found i
  15. Ok I’ve been asked to post these by a fellow member. This is Academy’s T-33. I built this kit when i first got back into the hobby in 2014. Its not the best work still needs harness’s but I figured why not show it. I built the kit to represent a generic S.A.C. Hack aircraft circa late ‘60’s or early ‘70’s. Hope you like it. The only real problem i found was the lower rear fuselage. The wing to Fuselage joint and the seams were a bit troublesome. The Decals from academy just vaporised when they came into contact with water. So I pulled a hodgepodge of decals f
  16. Hi all! Well the next one rolls out of the paint shop in the form of a Lockheed AT-33A Shooting Star, depicted as she was when operated later in her life with the Fuerza Aerea Uruguaya (the Uruguayan Air Force). Over time the FAU operated 11 of these machines from Durazno Air Base in the centre of the country, with 2 more acquired for spares. “207”, originally a T-33A-20-LO, she was 53-4919 in USAF service and was operated in Uruguay from 23/07/1969 to 05/06/1997. She went on to be one of the last that was operated by the air arm. The T-33s in Uruguayan service had many schemes. O
  17. Does anyone out there have a definitive list of the T-33/AT-33s operated by the FAE. I am interested in the early serial range only. For example "AT-799" is a known machine. I ask because from the only image I can find of an operational T-bird in the old scheme and serial system it depicts "TF-868", which is listed on the web as an F-80C! Does anyone know the truth? Thanks. Martin
  18. Hello friends, I am continuing to make aircraft used in the Yugoslav War Air Force. Lockheed T-33A is familiar to all of you. This is old Hasegawa, which is very nicely folded and there are no problems for work. Here's the picture. Enjoy.
  19. T-33 Update sets & masks - For Great Wall Hobby Kit 1:48 Eduard The new Great Wall Hobby kit is a good one, however Eduard are along as always offering their update sets for the kit. Here we have 3 sets; Update, flaps and seatbelts. Update Set (49796) This is one brass fret and one nickel one. The coloured parts on the nickel fret are mainly for the cockpit including the main instrument panels, side panels and controls.

  21. Lockheed T-33 1:72 TanModel The T-33 is a jet trainer developed from the P-80 Shooting Star by Lockheed during the late-1940s. Initially intended as a trainer variant of the P-80 fighter aircraft, the T-33 was created by lengthening the fuselage of the P-80 by approximately three feet and adding a second cockpit. Over 7,000 T-33s were built in total, far outstripping production number of the original fighter aircraft. In total, over 30 nations have used the T-33, many of which were supplied via the US Foreign Military Assistance programme. As well as being one o
  22. Hi all, I have another build underway and it is for an overall "international orange" USAF T-bird. I use Humbrol so is their 209 appropriate? I would undercoat/primer with white. I'd appreciate your advice. Thanks. Martin
  23. Here's what I've got to work with (haven't found the rest of the Monogram bits yet): I'm using this particular F-80 purely because it is the only one I can get my hands on at the moment. The plan is to make a T-33 out of the F-80, which will involve cutting it in front of the wing and separating the "removable" tail cone, adding a 1/4" ring. True Details cockpit, and whatever is needed from the Hobbycraft/Academy T-33 to get the job done. Now, I know there's a rule about "25% started", but I submit to you that if you consider that I'll be making more parts that need attaching than were p
  24. I have no specific theme to my collection. I photographed this Canadian Forces 410 Sqn CT-133 (T-33) around 1978 as it visited Goose Bay, NL. I am told the dayglo orange would have originated from the Canadian Navy Squadron VU-32 or VU-33 based in Shearwater, NS. The model is Academy and paints are either Tamiya or Model Master and decals are a combination of spares box and some home made ones. Lou
