  1. Good Evening Ladies and Gentleman, Greetings from COVID Stricken Prague, mater urbium. As an employee on air travel and cargo industry I have a lot of time now, so after long time of persuation I decided to return back to scale modeling for the time being as a sidequest from Wargaming - you can see some of our gaming endeavours in gallery and blog. Introduction is behind us, let's talk about the models. The Crusader will be my 2nd model after as long as 15 years I believe. I found out that the hobby changed a lot. As a figure painter you do not need all those fancy photo-etche
  2. 1/72 Airfix C-47, Air America, Bangkok, Thailand 1971 Anything, Anywhere, Anytime, Professionally. Air America was a covert operation run by the CIA which delivered items, goods, people and whatever else was necessary to places that the US Military could not openly go. Built using the Airfix D-Day C47 Skytrain kit. Airbrushed using Tamiya acrylics and lightly weathered using Flory dark wash. Wolfpak decals for the Air America scheme. I am delighted with how this has turned out - better than I imagined.
  3. Another started way back last year and finished earlier this week. EB-66 Destroyer, 42nd TEWS, 388th TFW, Korat RTAFB, 1973 Italeri mould, airbrushed freehand with Tamiya acrylics, Flory wash and Xtracrylix flat varnish. Builds into a cracking sized model, was difficult to photograph especially in lousy light (have tried different settings on some frames). Has great presence on the shelf.
  4. Hello Britmodellers! While the Vigilante is under the leisure sanding work, I decided to build and paint some figures in parallel. Actually, I was a big fan of the Dragon’s «Nam» series back in the late ‘90s, so it’s not a surprise that I chose this kit. I’m not so hurry with this build, but I want to have some fun and recall my painting skills. The box art: An «instruction» along with the painting scheme: Sprue A: Sprue A (backside): Looks not not so bad in comparison with the Dragon, I think it’
  5. Hello, Britmodellers! Last night I finished the work with the «Patroling» kit from Master Box and decided to put the final photos here, instead of the «Figure Ready for Inspection» section. I made an attempt to build a small vignette with only the two figures from the kit and some diorama materials. Actually, this was my first work with a diorama in the last 20 years and my first ever work with a pigments. Anyway, I hope you’ll like it! View 1: View 2: View 3: View 4: A closer look a
  6. Having started land and waterborne elements of the Vietnam war, it was inevitable that I would want a flying machine as well. And in my view nothing symbolises the Vietnam war more than the ubiquitous Huey, the UH-1. Ideally I'd like to do a slick, as the real Hueys I've seen have all been the longer body version. But apart from the Panda/Dragon effort, I'm not aware of any slicks in 1/35, and the Pandagon versions are seemingly both as rare as rocking horse poop, and reviews are not very complimentary. Kitty Hawk bottled out and went 1/48, so the field is still.open for someone to step up. Ho
  7. Over in the armour forum I started a thread on my current Vietnam war builds. However the PBR feels out of place there, so this thread will follow the PBR build. There might be a hiatus while I crack on with the M151 on the other thread, but as a taster here's the bits before I begin work: Untitled by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr Untitled by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr
  8. I wasn’t sure where to put this, since it’s a thread with both military vehicles and a boat! (And if Kittyhawk ever release their UH-1 in in 1/35 it might end up with a chopper too!) 1 by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr The Vietnam war was still underway when I was born, and growing up our local library was a source of endless fascination – I don’t remember all the titles but among them there was Air America; another book about a Brit serving in the US army, and many others. The poignancy of many of them was probably lost on me as a kid, bit as I grew older I read other works,
  9. 1/72 Trumpeter North American RA-5C - Vigilante, RVAH-13. USS Enterprise 1972. Task Force 77. With the increasing U.S. military involvement in Vietnam after 1964, RVAH-13 was added to the mix of RVAH squadrons participating in combat operations in Southeast Asia. In conducting pre- and post-strike reconnaissance, the RA-5C would incur the highest loss rate of any U.S. Navy combat aircraft during the Vietnam War, and RVAH-13's experience would more than reflect this. On 28 December 1972, during Operation Linebacker II, RA-5C BuNo 156633 was lost in combat when it was shot down
  10. When the 353rd TFS & 355th TFS of the 354th TFW deployed to Thailand for operations over Vietnam, their aircraft retained all their identifying unit markings, which seems to have been fairly rare among units in Southeast Asia. There are a couple of items regarding these markings that I'm still unsure of, but I'm sure someone here knows what I'm trying to find out. Basically, I have two questions: (1) The aircraft displayed a red or blue band at the top of the fin, which typically identifies the squadron within the wing, but which was which? (2) The
  11. Hey everyone, I'm thinking about building a few 1/144 kits for the first time in my life. I did some random googling and I was pretty disappointed due to the inaccurate shapes of the kits. Some looked more like cartoon drawings of the airplanes than realistic models of it. Which are the most accurate kits in 1/144? I prefer Vietnam era fighters but I'm okay with bombers (as long as it's something like an Intruder, not a B-52) and later eras as well.
  12. Hey everyone, I have two quick questions about Vietnam era UH-1Bs. What colour would you use to paint the helicopter? According to the conversion charts, Italeri suggests 887 (I use Vallejo, that's "brown violet"). However, I find this a bit too light compared to some of the pictures I have found (for example this http://www.globalsecurity.org/jhtml/jframe.html#http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/systems/aircraft/images/uh-1c-p273.jpg||| ). I tried 889 ("US olive drab") which seems to be too dark compared to other pictures. According to a discussion on a different f
  13. Hello Guys, Below are the images of my "Final Reveal" for the Tamiya 1/48 Douglas A-1J Skyraider. After the images, I will include some notes regarding this build; my opinions of the kit in terms of quality, cost, value for money etc and any points to look out for if you decide to buy and build this kit. I hope you like the following views, and, forgive me for all the photos, but I always have a problem trying to decide what to show! I bought this kit for $32.00 from Hobbylinc.com last year, but it is now for sale from their website at $33
  14. Tamiya M48A3 depicted as US Marines in Vietnam. The kit is from the 1970's with part of the the Legend M48 Stowage Set added and the AFV Club Indy Track (the black stuff). Weathering with MiG Vietnam Earth pigments
