  1. Hi, This has taken ages and has been really fiddly - bits keep dropping off! I'm pleased with the result although the finish could be better
  2. Hello all, After arriving home from a great weekend at RIAT, I was delighted to see that the 1/48 Tamiya F-14D kits that I ordered had arrived! A very excited 28 year old was the result. Won't be able to wait long to get started, so first up will be marked as 163894 of VF-2 'Bounty Hunters' during Operation 'Iraqi Freedom' in 2003. BuNo 163894 was delivered in 1990 and originally served with VF-124 at Miramar. The aircraft was transferred to VF-101 in 1994 when VF-124 was disbanded, before entering service with VF-2 in 1997. The aircraft became VF-2's colour jet in late 2001. During 'Iraqi Freedom', 163894 dropped 49 LGBs and a further 10 GBU-31 JDAMs. After OIF, the aircraft was transferred to VF-101 after VF-2 transitioned to the F/A-18F. I believe the aircraft was later sent to AMARG and scrapped. To those that have built one, the Tamiya kit needs no introduction. The new tooling for the D model looks just as nice and comes in a slightly larger box. The inclusion of intake masks and vinyl stickers for the boarding step reinforcement plates are very welcome. Check your references for the latter, as not all F-14s had them. Aftermarket: I'll be adding a pair of Quickboost NACES seats and a Master brass pitot tube. I've also some resin canopy mirrors in the spares that will be included. Scheme and decals: Will be loaded with 2x AIM-9s, 4x GBU-12s, the standard 2 fuel tanks and the LANTIRN pod. References: If you can get your hands on the Bombcat magazine, i'd recommend you do so. A very good read with plenty of good pictures. As for the other kits, i've plans for them already. The next one will likely be BuNo 164601 of VF-31 during OIF. Then in no particular order; VF-213 last cruise, VF-31 last cruise and i'll throw a VF-154 F-14A in for good measure! Fightertown's new decals are superb, with a couple more sheets to come later in the year. A good time to be an F-14 fan. Dave

    Color help

    Hello friends havent posted in quite a while but need some advice. Now that Testors has for the most part eliminated their MM line of enamels I find myself in the land of acrylics, where my problem has been the fast drying time for an old man who paints slow and deliberate. Anyway, my question is what Tamiya color is closest to MM dark glossy blue, or 15042 if I remember the FS number correctly. I want to do a nice dark glossy sea blue on a circa 1945 Hellcat. If I have to start using acrylics then a basic spray job is in order. Are acrylics ever glossy, or is a gloss coat necessary? I know that the vast majority of you guys have been using acrylics for years but this old dog needs to learn a few new tricks out of pure necessity. Well, any help would be much appreciated. Cheers SA
  4. Hello guys; After my last model built (Bf109E7 1/32 Eduard), I spent a little time working in this beautiful kit. I used interior and surfaces sets by Aires, Barracuda mainwheels, flaps by quickboost and Mastel PL barrels. Xtradecal decals was used. Cheers!
  5. This will be my first build of two l hope . (i will try and load the pic`s later !!!)
  6. Hi guys This will be my offering from the Tamiya 1/48 kit, I've gone for the steed of Lt. Paul Conger 61st FS-56th FG out of Halesworth Dec '43 Any tips or links to ref pics welcome
  7. G'day all, This the latest off the bench, my quick down and dirty Tamiya Spitfire Mk1a OOB, brush painted with Humbrol and Tamiya enamel paints. Another one to hang from the ceiling. Cheers, Devo
  8. Hi guys going to build a 1/48 tamiya bubbletop. Meant to be a nice kit was tempted with Eduard photoset have but don't fancy splashing out plus all the kit detail looks top notch. Have bought some amdg decals which are in the post. Going to build this one, (I just posted the link for the image so hope I'm upsetting anyone copyright wise) I like colour scheme as it's OD over NMF with the upper wing invasion stripes painted over. So should be good fun with weathering. There's also a shark mouthed razorback on the sheet so maybe another later... Look forwards to starting Joss

    Honda S600

    Now that the Cuda is finished, it's time to move onto my next project. I'm not sure if there will be much interest in it - my MO is to build straight from the box and take a long time over doing it. So this weekend, I made a start on Tamiya's Honda S600. Well, that's almost correct as since the weather warmed up I have been doing the necessary spraying of the body and other body coloured items. But this was the weekend when I made a start on assembly, albeit a very slow start. From what I can gather, the kit has a good reputation, and I can't really disagree. But what really strikes when you first open the box is that this thing is tiny. To demonstrate, both the Corvette and the S600 in the pic below are 1/24, and the rear end lines up on both cars. IMG_6396 Closer examination reveals very little in the way of mould lines, so I presume they are concealed within the chrome strips which will run along the body. What mould lines there are are generally pretty small and not very noticeable. So not noticeable in fact that I completely missed one that runs along the corner of the boot lid until after I'd primed the body. Having resanded that bit, I had to respray the back of the car which has meant that instead of having the body in the intended colour, that and the bonnet will have to wait a couple of weeks. Other body colour items have the colour coat on now, so hopefully I can get the clear on before too long. IMG_6395 This is where things stand at the moment, very early days. I still haven't even got the second coat of aluminium paint on the enginem and only have the block glued together. Not a lot else really, so I guess this is a good point to leave it.

    1.48th P-47D Razorback

    Started Today, a nice relaxing build, an lovely Tamiya Jug So today, made up the cockpit - probably the nicest OOB cockpit i know Peter
  11. As I've slowed down a bit on my Panzer II due to the fiddly etch, I decided to start another project. Couldn't resist putting together the basic chassis and gun. First order of business I think is the PAK, so I've been cleaning up the kit parts and adding the photo-etch parts. I'll be using this picture as a reference, as the Eduard instructions aren't clear where everything goes. (Though I hope mine won't look as ropey as this does in places) Luckily, there are loads of images of this gun online, so I have an idea of where things go.
  12. After a longer pause, my dad has some free modelling space for a little tank build now and already started Tamiya´s new Churchill, doing the flamethrower version. As expected it seems to be a troublefree quick build.

  13. Hi everybody, Been busy the last weeks and made an other one, was the first model i bought and kept it untill i had the feeling i could do it because it wasn't a easy model to make... I only make Tamiya for the moment as they fit wonderfull and are a easy task but the paint job was difficult... I hope you can enjoy and as always, feel free to let me know what you think as i can only learn from it but keep in mind this in only the third model i have made... Now started with the Tamiya Corsair... As always the paint i used was only Tamiya and painted it with my airbrush, otherwise straight out the box...
  14. This is my entry. Tamiya's 1/48th scale P-47D build as a D-20 from the 19th Fighter Squadron. The decals are from the very nice Thundercals sheet, Razorback of the PTO part 4. I'm going to use Ultracast wheels and seat and the excellent Vector P-47 upgrade set.
  15. Just putting my marker down, will add pics etc in the morning. Looking forward to this one!
  16. Hi all, I hadn't planned to do a WIP thread but I changed my mind part way into the build. So, this won't be a detailed thread, just a collection of pics as I go. The main reason I got back into modelling is because I really wanted a really detailed F-16 on my desk, and I thought it was as good an excuse as any to get back into the hobby properly. I could have paid one of the many pros to do one for me and the results would be 10x better than I could ever achieve, but I wanted to do it myself So, off to the LHS I went I bought two Tamyia kits. When I saw the options, I knew immediately which example I wanted to build - #83-1144, I block 25 ANG F-16C. The reason? It is the livery/scheme shown on the box art of the flight sim I have been studying/flying for 20 years, Falcon 4.0. Neither of the above images is 100% accurate for the jet it represents, but it's close enough to show the airframe I'm modelling AIRE4364 Aires F-16C 25/32 resin/PE cockpit set QAB480025 Aires AIM-9L/M Seeker Cover and RBF tag set I was going to get the Tamiya detail up set too, but decided to scratch build the strengthening plates instead On to the build! Landing gear bay is nicely detailed, but lacking some details. I'm not too fussed about everything being perfect, but the cockpit tub (ICP and UFC in particualar) is surprisingly lacking for a Tamiya kit. Undercarriage I can live with though, and will beef it up a bit with wires etc later on. Sadly though, there are many injector pin marks, some in obviously visible areas, so they will need to be filled. Thankfully, many are raised flashed edges, so they can be scraped off without the need for filler. The next thing I wanted to tackle was the engine intake. I've built F-16s before and am aware of the 'challenge' of getting a nice seam free assembly AND somehow paint it. It went together well, but I had to get creative with tools to get the innards smooth and seam free. Getting there... More on this later. Next, I turned my attention to the cockpit tub, as I was looking forward to taking advantage of the details. It takes LOTS of fiddling and plastic/resin removal to get it to fit. The photos aren't up to date, but at the time of writing I have it about 95% ready to fit, before all the filling starts. The PE parts are tiny! Cockpit painted, ready for gloss and wash: Side walls aren't fitted yet, but they're painted and ready to attach (not photo'd). As you can see, there are lot of gaps that will need addressing. I have since scrape away the lip at the front that forms part of the canopy seal. I have scratchbuilt a part to bridge the gap, and the rest will be done with putty. Whilst the oil wash dries over the week, little bits of sub assemblies have come together. I've joined together the main upper parts of the fuselage, filled in panel lines that don't exist, and started scratch building some strengthening plates that were fitted to the block 40s and older to keep them going to 8000 hour rating. These were just mate from the flat bits of sprue that are stamped with tree labels and branding etc. A little rough around the edges, and not as good as PE part but I've spent far too much on this hobby over the last month so I had to draw the line. Once they're cleaned up and primed, they'll just look like part of the kit. To be continued...

    Type 64

    My latest model tank, the Chinese/Taiwanese Type 64. The model kit is Tamiya's 1/35 scale M41 Walker Bulldog, which was originally released in 1975 as a remote control toy & has been in production ever since. It can be bought really cheap & is recommended to any beginners because of its simple & easy construction. Because of how common this kit is I decided to do something a bit different & convert it into the rather obscure Type 64. Which was an upgraded version of the M41 developed in Taiwan in 1964, it featured a new engine, extra armour bolted onto the turret sides & new side-skirts. Only two prototypes were built, one was destroyed on a firing range & the other is currently displayed in a museum. The extra turret armour was made with plastic card that was warmed up & bent into shape, the side-skirts are made from aluminium cut from a drinks can & the ROC insignia I printed myself. As this kit was originally a motorised toy it is full of holes for the electronics which I filled in & sanded smooth. I also scratch-built several extra parts that aren't included in this kit, such as the third exhaust, support bars over the fenders & all of the vision ports were drilled out & replaced with new clear parts. When I started this build I thought it would be quick & simple but it turned into a bit of a chore & I felt rather drained after. So much so that it's taken me two months to get around to taking pictures of it. Note: There are actually two different tanks called Type 64, the other (& better known) Type 64 was a hybrid of an M42 Duster hull & a M18 Hellcat turret. This "hybrid" Type 64 was build as a stop-gap design after development of this Type 64 was cancelled.
  18. My latest completion, Yes, another Spitfire! The now quite old Tamiya kit is a very easy and satisfying build. Mine is straight out the box and was a really relaxing and satisfying model to complete. This is option 2 from the kit - 92 Squadron RAF November 1940. I like the half black wing id reintroduced in the wake of the BoB along with the tail band marking and the light coloured spinner. I also have the newer Airfix Mk 1 in the stash and am keen to see how the Airfix kit builds compared to the Tamiya example. Of all the Spitfire marks the Mk 1 is my favourite, and i think this kit caputure the look very well. Thanks for looking, Cheers Greg
  19. After seen fotos from Matilda A12 tank in use by Wehrmacht at Crete during 1941-44, http://beutepanzer.ru/Beutepanzer/uk/A12_matilda/a12creta_matilda.html I decided to built Tamiya Matilda 1/35 kit from my stock. About the kit : Excellent detail, great fitting, no filler! Pattern : Caunter scheme with white balkenkreuz Colors : AK real color set No 10 (colors used : RC041 Portland Stone, RC038 Silver Gray, RC039 Slate) The real color set supposed to be the same as the real ones. From the colored foto of the link I think that are ok. All comments are more than welcome ! Thanks!!!
  20. #16/2018 After P-40 and P-47, here´s my dad´s next USAAF subject, the first Malcolm hooded P-51 for our collection. Tamiya Mustang Mk.III kit, main markings are from Kits World Decals, the rest from Aeromaster and the kit. Vallejo Metal Color Aluminium for the NMF, Gunze and Tamiya acrylics for the rest, brass wire for the whip antenna. To get closer to the original my dad filled the wing panel lines with putty, partly it broke out again, guess that happend on the real aircrafts too. The kit has several flaws. The only correction my dad did was to shorten the ammo bay panel covers, didn´t turn out perfect but it looks ok. Build thread here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/ind ... -fs-usaaf/ The model shows the Mustang of 1st Lt Ralph "Kidd" Hofer, 334th FS 4th FG, in 1944. Hofer was shot down and killed on July 2nd 1944, either by Hungarian 109s or AA fire.

  21. Hello to all, After the amazing saga my last build has been (a vintage race car, the Fiat 806 Corsa at 1/12 Italeri, see if interested the summarize here: https://www.google.fr/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=6&ved=0ahUKEwif_vra5cnXAhUGuhoKHYo9BJIQFgg4MAU&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.britmodeller.com%2Fforums%2Findex.php%3F%2Ftopic%2F235028933-fiat-806-corsa-112-a-true-to-original-replica%2F&usg=AOvVaw35SjHJwOHWiadD7NM-4lu3 ), I begin a new build, very different (I am used to alternate a vehicle and an aircraft up to now). Of course, many builds have ever been dedicated to the Tamiya P 51D Mustang, especially on Britmodeller... I saw particularly the Squibby one, begun very recently and very nice, that will be definitely a source of inspiration. But as every build is different and personal, I decided to dive again in the Brit bath! I must precise too that I will take a good part of my inspiration in the great Juan Manuel Villalba DVD, for which I made the translation in french for the subtitles. Juan is a very famous modeler and a real gentleman, who learnt me a lot in model making and photography, he is a master and a friend, even if we couldn't meet up to now (we live far away one to the other one, pity...). Before beginning the build, a word of history: John Brooke England was born in 1923 at Caruthersville, Missouri. His service number was O-739263 and he joined the 362nd FS of the 357th FG in April 1943 as a 1/Lt meaning that he was part of the original cadre that left the ZI in November 1943 for the UK. He was promoted to Captain and then to Major. He took command of the 362nd FS on 25 August 1944, while he was only 21. He served two tours with the 357th FG for a total of 108 operational missions giving a total of 460 hours combat flying time. He was the second highest scorer in the 357th with a total of 17.5 victories. England finished his second tour and rotated home on 26 January 1945. He remained in the service after the war and was killed in an F-86 crash in November 1954 in France. I began my build logically by preparing the parts of the section 1 and some other ones, placing them in a box with compartments, that I got in the Italeri's kit (one of the best part of this kit, definitely ): N.B: I just made the photo, so the radio compartment is ever begun... After the parts preparation, I began the cockpit by removing some details to replace them by new ones (arrow 1, and the radio). I didn't use the Eduard P.E part 47, too thin, and replaced it by 0,3 mm thick tin wire (arrow 3) I must precise now that, differently with Juan, who made the radio by total scratch (amazing), I used the very recent Eduard photoetched set for Airfix kit (ref. 49853), that I had to adapt to the Tamiya kit: N.B: here too, I just made the photo, some parts have been removed and ever used. The screws on the side were made from very small portions cut in 0,2 mm thick tin wire (Juan cuts in stretched plastic). The tabs come from another Eduard PE set. N.B: I had to adapt the A 17 Tamiya part to the Eduard 42 one, smaller (for Airfix) and accidently, I cut a portion of the floor and radio support. Of course, I will do the necessary correction... IMPORTANT: I have decided (lately, I had to edit my posts) to number the pics: - the assembly pics will be numbered in yellow - the docs will be numbered in black (white if the background is black). The different versions (enlargements, fe) of a same doc will have a letter a, b, c... after the number. So, it will be easier to mention a pic in the debates we should have. GLOSSARY: this glossary will refer to the numbered docs. Of course, it will be actualized along the way... - 108 gallon paper tanks: 20a, 23, 23a, 94, 94a, 95, 96, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 113, 114, 115, 116, 119, 128, 129, 131, 132, 133, 134a, 137d - radio compartment and fuselage tank: 1, 1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, 2, 3, 4, 4a, 4b, 6, 7, 8, 9, 9a, 10, 11, 12, 15, 26, 30, 65, 66 - outside, rivets: 90, 97, 97a, 97b, 98, 98a, 98b, 99, 101, 102, 103, 103a, 104, 104a, 117, 118, 137b c d, 138a b c, 139 - gear strut and wheels: 23a, 23b, 106, 106a, 120, 134a, 137b - tail wheel: 121, 122, 123, 124, 125, 130, 138b - John England: 24, 24a, 24b, 24c, 25, 106 - joystick: 46, 49b, 62, 70, 71, 72, 73, 75, 76 - Missouri Armada: 20, 20a, 21, 22, 23, 23a, 100, 106, 118 - left panel: 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 57, 58, 58a, 59, 60, 60a, 74, 84, 85, 88 - right panel: 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 88 - pedals: 52, 79, 80 - cockpit floor and details: 46, 46a, 47, 48, 48b, 49, 49a, 49b, 61, 62, 62a, 64, 67, 68, 69, 70, 80, 81, 82, 83 - seat, seat support, cushion and seat belts: 5, 5a, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 18a, 30, 31, 32, 33, 33a, 34, 35, 36, 37, 37a, 38, 39, 40, 137c - instrument panel: 87, 88 - canopy and rail: 18a, 18b, 19, 27, 28, 29, 89, 90, 91, 91a, 92, 92a, 93, 101, 118, 137a - radiator area: 77, 78, 86, 137d, 138a - helix and nose: 104, 106, 118, 134b - landing gear wells: 138a N.B: Lately, I have abandoned the idea of numbering the docs, for several reasons, among others : - some docs that I first considered as very important had finally to be not good. It is the case for example of the ones showing the rivets lines 97 and 98. - it is difficult (and sometimes unfair) to decide that such a doc is more important than another one. - numbering the docs is time consuming and we can refer easily to a doc by mentioning the post#. - small and small, a lot of docs and infos have been brought in the thread, which has turned in a real reference one, thanks to the contribution of experts on the matter. Thank you for your comprehension, I hope you will enjoy the thread...
  22. The MK I is nearly complete, so I decided to move on to the MK Vb. This is another model I had built many years ago and never painted. I'm using Stynylrez for the first time.
  23. As I'm back from my holidays I suppose I'd better register my entry for this GB. My plan is to use Tamiya's 1/72nd Bubbletop to reproduce a post-war French P-47D-30-RE of the 3ème Esc de Chasse based at Trèves near Lyon in 1946. It's an NMF aircraft with a black stripe along the fuselage and stripes on the wings, I'll be using Model Art decal sheet 72-042 although I'm going to have to paint the pesky stripes... ...have to give that some thought I'll post pictures at the weekend once I've got myself sorted out.
  24. Mentioned after the Kodiak Lumina, that my next car build would definitely not be any sort of race-car, so here's Tamiya's gorgeous little 1966 1300 Beetle wearing Tamiya Mica Red & Light Gunmetal (TS-42). Decals are from the RoG Beetle and are superb. As ever please feel free to make any comments, hurl any abuse or ask a question. Next build will have wheels, but will also fly, so probably won't be seen here in the Vehicle Modelling forum. Until next time... Ian.
  25. My dad´s US bird builds continue. A Malcolm hooded version is still missing in our collection. Gonna use the Tamiya kit and do a shiny version, not yet decided which scheme. DSC_0009 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
