  3. The Build log is here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235070426-1350-hms-kent-county-class-cruiser-1941/ Thanks are due to Richard Dennis @dickrd and Jamie Duff @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies for their considerable input into the Colour scheme, which differs substantially from previous interpretations. I've made extensive use of 3 D printed items from https://micromaster.co.nz/ which IMHO have set new standards in small scale detailed realism
  4. Hi everyone This is the Trumpeter Tiger (late) kit with zimmerit. It's my first 1/35 German AFV and I've tried to incorporate a few new weathering and detailing techniques that I have learnt this year. It was painted with lifecolour acrylics and weathered with oils and pigments. I replaced the kit tracks with Dragon DS tracks, which were kindly donated to me by a friend. The plastic tracks that come in the Trumpeter kit have solid guide horns, which are not accurate for a late Tiger. The spare tracks are from the Modelkasten spare tracks set. I have kep
  5. I have also started another carrier build as I’ve decided to finish the RN Destroyers, Cruiser and Minelayer alongside the the two DKM Z classes during the wet season as I would more home bound during the wet season and be able to devote more attention to them. Hopefully once they are done a start on some DKM battle wagons as well. This HMS Ark Royal by Trumpeter in 1/700. I always said I would never go to back to Trumpeter after my DKM Admiral Hipper build, but now back have a crack at this one. I won’t be doing to much to this build in the way of PE, but just a enough to make i
  6. OK making a space for a long term build (Yes another one) but with a difference a sort of WHIF or WTF if you prefer. I,ll be using the Trumpeter 1/350 PETER STRASSER Aircraft carrier kit but going to bling it up with the INFINI detail upset for the Graf Zeppelin hence the title now Zeppelin was launched and used as target practice and evaluation by the Russians after the end of WW2 So this will just be my imagination going wild for some reason while doing a bit of research on this I found a build by Hyun Soo Kim based on the world of warships game and camouflage scheme bit like the d
  7. In a desperate attempt to get my build schedule back on track, I have just bought a kit specifically for this GB: I can't remember the last time I bought a kit to build immediately, and I mean immediately. It's not going into the stash, not even for a day. I'll start it later this afternoon.
  8. Let the whistle blow on this build - I've been accumulating pieces for some months. There's still not a dedicated etch set though White Ensign Models have heavily hinted. There are however, sets for HMS Cornwall that she shared most characteristics with. This Family of 13 Cruisers were built in the 1920's under the limits of The Washington Naval Treaty 1922, with an upper weight limit of 10,000 tons. HMS Kent was launched in 1926 and spent the pre war years largely on the China Station. She diiffered from others such as HMS Berwick and Cornwall with never having a seaplane han
  9. After the Graf Spee, what else could I assemble but the HMS Exeter. I got the kit several months ago, and have been adding some aftermarkets for a better experience, like: 1. Eduard Big Ed PE, 2. Infini models Brass Masts, 3. Scale Chain 4. Master Model 8" barrels 5. Master Model 4" barrels 6. Wooden base (same as used for the Graf Spee) it will be a waterline model The length of the HMS Exeter vs the Graf Spee surprised me, it does not seem too much shorter. Marco

  11. Having built small 1/72 aircraft & 1/72 armour in previous Blitzbuilds, thought I would test myself this time with a larger kit. So a rummage through the stash has produced the following. Will be built OOB with the exception of a replacement resin seat. Just to make it more interesting I will be folding the wings. The plan is do do the 'Other Option' starting on the Saturday. Aim is to get the sky on by end of Saturday to give overnight drying time before masking for the EDSG. The plan is complicated by the fact there is the Tour de France starting, the Belgi
  12. To paraphrase a certain UK TV Quiz Show, "I have started so I might as well finish". Having posted the intro for my F-100F Wild Weasel, here is the follow-up build. I am hoping to use some elderly but as yet unopened tins of Xtracolour enamel on 3 kits simultaneously as it might make more sense, but we will see. After the events described in the intro to my F-100F build, it soon became apparent that although the concept worked, the Hun was too slow to work effectively with the supporting F-105D Thuds. It was therefore decided to convert the F-105F 2 seater as a replacement. Like th

  17. Hello Everyone, The build is a MIG29SMT built into an Indian Air Force MIG29UPG taking off on a Wet Runway with Glowing Afterburners. The kit used is a Trumpeter MIG29SMT in 1/72 size. Most of the work done was on making the Flame look realistic enough. The flame is Clear Resin and is lit by using 2 White LEDs housed in the exhaust cans. The model is painted using the bare basic techniques of preshading and light coats of grey color to make this an IAF grey machine. Paints used were acrylics. This was a first trial run to make the Afterbu
  18. Oh, what the heck! Whilst I wait for some decs to dry for another GB I might as well set up my 2nd build. Years ago I built the Hasegawa F-100D and F-105D, but I have always fancied a Wild Weasel version and now I have a pair of Trumpeter kits released a few years back. As this was perhaps the first true Weasel, then I will deal with it first, with my usual tedious informative background story on the F-100 aka the "Hun" - presumably an abbreviation for hundred? The shooting down of Gary Powers' U2 over Russia in 1960 by a SA-2 Guideline AA missile came as a
  19. Russian T-62 Mod 1960 (01546) 1:35 Trumpeter The T-62 was developed from the T-55, and to the uninitiated could be mistaken for one. On closer inspection there is 115mm main gun with a longer barrel and improved penetration, which required the turret to be enlarged and the chassis enlarged in turn to accommodate the larger turret ring. Despite family resemblance and an almost identical layout there is little commonality of major parts due to the size changes that propagated out due to the change of main armament, which was a world first in respect of the smooth b
  20. A fun build for a change, no issues with the fit very little filler needed and no self induced screw ups. I don't normally build planes with the wings folded but it takes the eye away from the too flat canopy. I used a Print Scale sheet for a MiG killer flown by Ensign Frederick Weber of VF-31 in 1`950. These conformed really well without much in the way of solvent. Thanks for looking.
  21. Hi all Here is another shelf of doom build, which has been ongoing for a while. The kit is not too bad overall but there are some areas that need correcting. After seeing Basilisks excellent WIP on the same. I have shortened the nose shortened the front U/C bay behind the front wheel leg, added the vents just in front of the cockpit and corrected the air intake vanes. The Cannon ports are at an odd angle as they come so they have been altered. The main U/C bay is a Pavla item as is the ejector seat. The rest is out of the box. Model is brush painted using Humbrol and Revell
  22. It was my birthday a few months ago and I decided to treat myself With this BIG BOI https://i.pinimg.com/originals/b0/0d/6b/b00d6b8dd53ee1a7390ae6ab64e35ed4.jpg I was pleasantly surprised to see how neat the box was https://i.pinimg.com/originals/e7/26/af/e726afa47a6eb758b7a2b104bf41a202.jpg Everything was neatly packaged and the larger parts were in the small box which has it's own boxart which was a nice surprise. I started the tail end first, and man, this thing is massive! https://i.pinimg.com/originals/d9/b6/38/d9b638f3e5c457b17950c0f7d2e5283e.jpg H
