    “DORA”

    Hello Everybody ... My latest build Tamiya’s 1/72 Fw-190D. I was kind of inspired to build this because of @Shelliecool‘s Recent 190 Dora. I used the kit decals but opted to go with a change in colors. I like the look of the late war two tone green uppers of RLM 82/83 over the RLM 76. Not entirely accurate but i can live with it. Ive got several builds in the works currently, but some are stuck for paint. So sooner or later i will have more to show for you. Without further talk i give you “Dora.” Please feel free to question, comment, or joke, I hope you like it. Dennis
  2. Hallo again This is my Spitfire Mark XVIe from Tamiya in 1/32. Wonderful kit!. All painting and insignia are as explained in: Stencils are Wet transfer from HGW. Happy modelling
  3. As my other builds approach the finish line, it's time to start another. I'll be using this kit: with the transfers from the Airfix kit To do this: Here's the obligatory sprue shot:

    Whispering Death

    For those of you who don't know what the title of this build is referring to "whispering death" is the name given to the Bristol Beaufighter by the Japanese as it wrought havoc on their forces in both Burma and in the Pacific. For this build I will be building an example flown by the RAAF which was used to great effect over the islands of the Netherlands East Indies. I will be using the 1/48 Tamiya TF.MK.X kit which I believe should have all the parts I need to reproduce one, here are the box and contents shots; As you can see the kit is still sealed in it's original bags. No decals for it yet but I'm planning on getting this set from DK Decals which has a nice one on it in the TSS scheme; http://www.dkdecals.cz/48016 RAAF Twins 1_48_1ZS.jpg It could still end up being one in the all over foliage green scheme but I prefer the one shown above. I won't start on it yet as I have too many on the go but once the Buffalo is done I should start it soon afterwards. Thanks for looking in. Craig.
  5. Wow I hadn’t thought this GB would come around so quick! I have way too many GB’s on the go at once but this was one I really wanted to join. This is one of my all time favourite aircraft……even if Tom Cruise “flew” one! I’ve only ever build older 1/72ndscale Airfix versions and have always wanted to build a big beastie to be part of a “Swing Wing” collection. I was super lucky in finding this one, Nup it's been replaced full of goodies and even white metal/rubber wheels, though these will be replaced. ….which some nice person happened to have included the Aires Cockpit set.. and so has this.. and Quickboost wheels all for a price quite a bit cheaper than some of the other Hasegawa F-14’s on evilBay. the wheels stay Plus as my usual I wanted to build something different so I acquired an Avionix’s F-14D Bombcat conversion set. ...and not using this either Plus some Super Scale decals for a VF-31 CAG aircraft. Yeah still using this I won’t be able to start on her straight away, but once I get a couple of the other builds out of the way…….
  6. Hi Folks I managed to pick p the Tamiya Perkasa at Telford, thinking being it would make a good comparison with the WWII boats I've built. Many of you will know the Perkasa along with three others was built for the Malaysian Navy. This was a spin off from the Brave Borderer/ Swordsman which got me wondering . . . . . Is it possible to convert the Perkasa to Borderer? Modifying above deck would seem ok but there seems to be conflicting info about the hull dimensions. I have found that there is a difference in the depth of the transom platform Borderer 2' 10" Perkasa 4' 4.5". Your thoughts and info would be appreciated Kev
  7. Hi everybody; last August I was in California for a big family holiday/vacation and, among other things, I got the chance to visit the The Flying Leathernecks museum in Miramar, right next to the Marine Corps Air Station and just outside of San Diego. After the visit, we walked into their gift shop and my youngest daughter insisted on buying this kit, so that she and I would have built it together once home. Was I supposed to disappoint a 9 years old cute little girl? Not really! So I bought it and, after finally completing my 9 months build of the Italeri A-10A Thunderbolt II, I got started with this: Here's the airframe on display at the Flying Leathernecks: and there's an excellent walkaround of it from Bill Spidle on PrimePortal: http://www.primeportal.net/hangar/bill_spidle4/f4d-1_139177/ Since my daughter is actually participating into the build, it will be mainly OOB, even though I already have in mind a couple of ... improvements to be done along the way. Anyway, the kit looks pretty simple, only two sprues plus the transparents: The windshield and canopy are crystal clear form the box, but having recently experienced how tough and resistant to masking (even when leaving the masking tape on for a loooong time ... ) the Aqua Gloss coating is, I dipped them in it and left to cure overnight: This is the scheme I'm going to go for: it's a Marines airframe, of course, as a tribute to the museum and the great time we all had visiting it. Here's the decal sheet: although admittedly, one of the improvements I have in mind is to cut my own masks for most of them I hope you'll enjoy the build, please feel free to add any comments/pointers/tips any time Ciao
  8. Kit - Tamiya 1:48 Paint - Tamiya acrylic & AK Xtreme Metals Decals - Superscale 48-1176 & 455 Extras - Eduard etch placard set & Zoom Set, Ultracast resin seat. NA P-51D-5 Mustang Assigned to Capt. Freddie Ohr 2nd FS, 52nd FG Italy late 1944 Just completed for a Group Build on another forum. Straightforward and effortless kit from Tamiya, been a while since I built a 'D', but as ever it was a joy. Feel free to make any criticism, comments or ask any questions. Hopefully see y'all at the IPMS New Zealand Nationals this weekend if you aren't going to Telford.?. Ian.

    A Clowder of Wildcats

    I have always had a spot spot for the Wildcat, but to date have never built one. The Wildcat always struck me a rugged, purposeful little fella. I hope to put this right with this group build. My proposed builds are 1/48 Hobby Boss F4F-3, with yellow wings. 1/48 Hobby Boss F4F-3S, the Wildcatfish 1/48 Tamiya F4F-4, with Wolfpack Designs folded wings. If it ok with the host, I would like to document the builds in a single WiP, as I plan (ambitiously) to build them simultaneously.
  11. #25/2018 Besides the recently posted Swiss G-6, my dad also built a Swiss E-3. Switzerland purchased 80 E-3 in 1939 and built 8 further aircraft as a licence version which were delivered in 1944. The aircrafts stayed in service until December 1949. Tamiya kit, crosses and stripes painted (Montex masks for the crosses), Eduard seatbelts, EZ line for aerials. brake lines and landing gear indicators with plastic rods. Gunze and Tamiya acrylics used, aircraft number and rest of decals from Cutting Edge and Tamiya. The Swiss Emils differed slightly from the German originals. All differences are mentioned in this Hyperscale feature from Randy Lutz http://hsfeatures.com/features04/bf109e3swissrl_1.htm My dad made not all changes. He removed the fuselage MG bulges and added new ones with plastic pieces, he made a new seatbelt arrangement, used a spadegrip control stick from an I-16 kit, changed the cowl panel lines and used 2cm wing guns from a Hasegawa A6M7 kit for the Oerlikon wing guns.

  12. "Britain’s position is hopeless. The war is won by us. A reversal in the prospects of success is impossible." -- Generaloberst Franz Halder, diary entry for 22 July 1940 Oh, it has its triumphs, but look at its countless defeats, missed blows, and repeat attempts! -- Wislawa Szymborska, "On Death, Without Exaggeration" "My experience over Dunkirk had taught me that when attacked the best counter was to go into a right turn. In this manoeuvre, the Spitfire was infinitely superior to the Messerschmitt, and so long as one remained in the turn, the enemy pilot could not bring his guns to bear. And this I did, as the German pilot flashed past, turning as he did so to get behind me. But it was I who finished astern of him. The rest was easy." -- Flight Lieutenant Al Deere, 54 Squadron As you may know, I have something of an interest in the Battle of Britain, and so I thought for my next build I would try something simple and easy and make it only slightly more complex. It's widely-acknowledged that the ICM 1/72 109E is eerily -- some uncharitable souls might say suspiciously -- similar to the 1/72 Tamiya 109E, but for fuselage halves of the correct length. How similar is it reputed to be? The kit parts have been said to be interchangeable. I decided to test this theory. The fuselage halves sure seem to fit the wings well! I painted the interior Colourcoats RLM02 with RLM66 detail bits (and like an idiot, managed to spill almost all of my brand-new pot of RLM66, which is almost impossible to do with Colourcoats tins unless you're an idiot, and guilty as charged Some speculative test-fitting suggests the Tamiya cockpit interior will fit without difficulty in the ICM fuselage. I'm using Xtradecals from their Battle of Britain 70th sheet (because both Tamiya and ICM decals are crap) to build Bf109E-3 "Yellow 15" of 3./JG52, flown by Unteroffizier Karl Wolff, which crash-landed in Calais on 30 August 1940. Wolff survived, only to be shot down and captured on 30 September 1940, a day of particularly heavy Bf109 losses for the Luftwaffe. The aircraft in question was photographed quite a bit, and as we can see, it received heavy field-applied mottling along the sides of the fuselage, in addition to having a white snout.
  13. 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.
  14. OK, here goes my version of the popular Tamiya F-14A Tomcat. I'm doing it in the markings of VF-142 Ghost Riders in their 1981 low-vis scheme from the old Microscale Decal sheet 48-217. Controversy and confusion kick off right from the get go! Microscale, with their usually vague painting instructions contradict each other in how the jet should be painted! I thought an ancient copy of Scale Aircraft Modelling June 1983 Vol. 5 Number 9 page 403 may have been of some help.................... ..........but the article seems to copy Microscale's instructions! The problem here is that I believe both Microscale and Scale Aircraft Modelling have got it wrong in their illustrations. The scheme in question appears to be the then brand new (for 1981 that is) low visibility blue/grey scheme of FS. 35237 top, FS. 36375 mid section and FS. 36495 underside. This very scheme has been slightly better documented by a couple of VF-143 Pukin Dogs Tomcats as seen below. https://deskgram.net/p/1825662876444855523_3230508708 So, the search began for any colour photos of Bu No. 159452. My initial search, several months ago, found nothing. But a more recent search uncovered a very poor quality colour image that seemed to confirm my hunch. https://abpic.co.uk/pictures/view/1048472 But, there are still unanswered questions! If anybody else is able to source any more colour photos of this particular jet I'd really like to see them. Anyway, so on with the build....... The cockpit is good enough out of the box. All that really needs adding is aftermarket seats. I'll be adding Quickboost seats from set number QB 48-754 for the EA-6B Prowler. As far as I'm aware they are the same seat as fitted to the early F-14A Tomcat, and you get 4 seats obviously, so enough for 2 Tomcats! I'm trying to build the kit in a way that avoids as much masking as possible. So I have painted the inside and outside of the nose section before gluing. This way I'm hoping I won't have to mask off the cockpit and undercarriage bay. Part number H6 the cockpit frame was painted Tamiya XF-85 Rubber Black, then dry brushed with light grey. This will simply slot in to place once the nose section is finished. An example of ease of use and speeding things up a little can be seen here with parts D18 and K1 and K2. I assembled K1 and K2 then glued them to D18, then went about cutting off the antenna and cleaning up the join line. Doing it this way made it all a lot easier to handle. Next the unit will be sprayed FS. 36495 and glued directly to the model. The panel on the side of the jet was filled with a styrene and Tamiya glue mix, then sanded. Perfect! Also take note of the fuselage mold line that needs to be removed prior to painting! More filling required on the nose section. This time using Mr Dissolved Putty. I really like this stuff and can highly recommend it. Also, there are two more sections of mold line that need to be removed. As indicated by the black marker and red arrows.............. On the intake ramp parts I glued part E13 to part D4 whilst holding parts D4 and E10 together (not glued) with mini clothes pegs. This aided painting later on. Parts G56, A5, A6 and B12 were all added to the lower fuselage section as well as the two E13 & D4 glued parts. This entire unit was then painted Stynylrez white primer. K14 and K15 were glued to their respective intakes and sprayed Stynylrez white primer. This section (not glued yet) is a drop fit onto the lower fuselage section. Such is the quality of Tamiya engineering! Next will be completing the front fuselage section and painting the lower fuselage FS 36495 in its various sub assemblies. Cheers Richard.
  15. Deep breath, swallow your pride and just post the pictures!!! So........ Hi everyone! I've been hiding in the shadows admiring the amazing skills on show on this forum and have finally decided to share my partial WiP Mk1 Spitfire. She started life as a Tamiya Mk1 Supermarine Spitfire, purchased from Duxford in support of The Blenheim Society: Whilst I have carried out some minor additions to the pit, and have painted and weathered it, I forgot to take pictures!! So she miraculously jumped to this..... the wings fitted nicely without much fuss. This will be the first Spitfire I have built with an open cockpit so a steep learning curve for me!
  16. So, I have been away for a month or so on business and whilst I was away I got a little self indulgent present delivered After finishing my previous model I decided to challenge myself with a NMF finish and so got the 1:32 Tamiya P51-D Mustang with which to have a go. As I am still a relative newbie I am doing this OOTB..........baby steps....NMF is my next goal.........maybe scratching will come later. I have never attempted NMF before, have purchased some Alclad II black gloss primer along with airframe aluminium and dull aluminium to use on select panels as it seems people like to break up the panels to make it look more realistic.....we'll see how it goes. Got an old Nimrod model that I intend to use as a paint mule and see how easy (or not) it is to get the desired effect. If all else fails I can always go back to the Tamiya rattle cans. So, having had a week or so of very intermittent bench time I have the pit done, still needs to be weathered but I'm reasonably happy with it so far. Also got the engine done and just about ready to join the fuse halves together. Model has gone together well so far, no fit issues so hoping this trend continues as I have had very few fit issues with Tamiya (except those self imposed by not looking at the instructions properly!) So here is how she stands now..........as always, comments and critique most welcome.
  17. Hi all, you may have spotted this in the backaground of my recent post of the Panther. Really fun kit to build following my Hobby craft rule and only £16. It’s an old kit and feels like it but goes together really nicely, better than the Panther did. So built straight out of the box and then finished with Tamiya paints, weathering powders and oil paints. Painted with hairy sticks and built up with three coats of heavily thinned color. Used humbrol gloss and matt varnish. I’ve got an Panzer IV Ausf J, broke the hobbycraft rule for the upcoming group build, really looking forward to it. Also working on a King Tiger in the works, still not happy with the Tiger 1 pics so will be doing them again before posting.
  18. "What General Wegand called the Battle of France is over,I expect the Battle of Britain to begin.Upon this battle depend's the survival of Christian civilisation.Upon it depend's our own British life and the long continuity of our Empire and institution's" Winston Churchill 18th June 1940. Right that's the historical bit,I love Aircraft and since the eight year old me was taken to see The Battle of Britain have been enthralled by event's during the summer of 1940.I bought Johnny Kent's account of his career in the RAF last week and now plan to read Geoffrey Wellum's account when I borrow it off my eldest.I have a terrible track record in this section with the last four or five project's either dead in the water or still half finished! I'm aiming for a end of year finish so no rushing Tamiya's two old but still very good kit's,Box scheme for the Luftwaffe tribute not sure on the Spitfire yet be a week or so before I get a start.

    Tamiya easy 8

    My new project, although this is a slow burn as it has to contend with my 7 month old son! I'm building the M4A3E8 depicted in this photo below as its a bit of an unusual subject (photo used for discussion only). The unusual things that have attracted me to building this are the use of empty jerry cans as additional armour, the early style turret and the the angled plates on the suspension bogies. I've never seen this last detail in any other photos of HVSS suspension shermans or can find any information mentioned in books or online about their purpose. If any of the experts on this site know their purpose, please let me know! for the build I'm using the Tamiya easy 8 as the base kit but with numerous additions. The main issue with the kit for this build is that it has the late style turret with the oval loaders hatch so I've used a dragon turret from their M4A3 76 kit that I've previously taken the lower hull from for another project. I've also used parts from an eduard PE kit and a DEF model barrel. ive cut away the fenders, these will be replaced by PE fenders so that I can wire the cans to them. The footsteps are also missing on the original tank so I've not added these and will be adding details to this area. the original photo doesn't show the barrel style, so given that it has the early style turret, I've used a barrel with thread protector to match that and make my E8 a bit different to the usual ones you see. I've added the stowage rails around the turret to match the photo and used mr surfaced 500 to add the cast detail back in in the joins. I added the strange angled plates from pcard with some meng bolt heads. next job is the fenders to add.
  20. Afternoon all from the land of the Long White Cloud. This started life about a month ago as an experiment - First time using Ammo of Mig acrylics and first attempt at the 'modulation method'. So because I don't want to bore everybody here at BM with the intervening steps, here's what it looks like all finished-off, (apologies to folks with slow broadband as it's quite photo-heavy !). Built straight from the box with no additions, I will be getting a set of the MiniArt British tank figures to group around and in the model in the near future. Weathering after the main paint modulation, filters & decals (in chronological order) - Dirty brown oil pin-wash, chipping and scratches, streaks & stains, heavily thinned dirty grey acrylic on the lower sections & wheels to simulate road dirt and finally pigments & mud splashes. Please feel free to make any comment, ask any questions or suggest anything I can improve upon. This'll be the last armour project for a while as I've got an F40 to finish and I'm also about 50% of the way through a 1:48 P-51 (both Tamiya). AFN Ian.
  21. Tamiya kit with Revell decals. Fit was perfect. The Revell decals were rather thick. The ones on the upper surfaces went down OK after I applied some Vallejo decal softener, but the lower wing roundels refused to conform to the panel lines. I´ll have to find Microsolfor the next time. The bombs were painted Revell 66 Olive Grey, which was said to be Olive Drab on Scalemates, but it looks too grey.
  22. Hi All, Finally. I'm calling this one done. I managed, after some considerable time just sitting in the 'to complete' pile, to finish this at the weekend. The build wasn't without its problems. Like the fitting of the wheels was a bit of a nightmare. They kept falling off! In fact one fell off this morning! I finally finished all the little bits, like the roof-rack and mud-guards and so on. I was trying to think of the best way to attach these to the car. I considered CA glue, but I didn't have any and I don't like CA glue very much. I seem to stick the thing to myself rather than the intended destination... So anyway, here it is. The 'Monte Carlo' plate is a lot wonky. The problem was I used Mr Setter setting solution, and by Jove, did it set it! It wouldn't budge. So I gave up and left it where it sat! It's even more obvious here! On the whole, I am pleased with the outcome. Another one to add to the car park. Sorry about the background. I need to set up a proper photography set up, but don't really have any to put it. Thanks for looking, Alan.
  23. This is a Cromwell Mk.Vllw, a welded Cromwell, converted from the Tamiya kit, using parts from Accurate Armour, SKP, RB Models and a bit of scratch building. A WIP can be found here. The base was made from balsa wood and filled with off cuts of laminate flooring underlay, a fibre board type of material. It was then painted black and fixed to a photo frame. The terrain was made with a hump in the middle so that it would display the displaced road wheels and tracks, and then covered with flock and clumps of grass. It could probably do with toning down a bit as it appears (to me) to be a little on the bright side. The big boots in the title refers to the fact that these tanks had 15.5 inch tracks as opposed to the 14 inch normally worn by Cromwells. I need to do a little bit of work on the mound, to bulk it up a bit. Anyway, I hope that you like it and thanks for looking. John.
