  1. A white-metal 54mm kit of a 10th Century Viking. Some parts were missing when I bought it and I added some extras I started this for the BM 10th Anniversary GB two years ago. I found him hiding in a small plastic box on one of my MU shelves. Since the end of the GB I had done some more painting and last night I did a lot more detail painting and got him on to the prepared base.
  2. Hard to believe there isn't a newer 1/72 tooling of the S-3 than the 70s Hasegawa kit. It's still really nice though, and the fit was amazing. I added a little bit of cockpit detail, mainly replacing the kit seats with resin items, and re-scribed the model. The engine intakes looked a bit narrow compared to photos so I widened them a touch. Markings are a combination of masking/painting, kit, and home-made decals.
  3. Got the groundwork painted last night, and attached the viking and some foliage and 'her er' - Finished. Really enjoyed painting this little chap, he is so full of character and nothing tricky to paint at all. Pretty much 1:1 scale view; Larger views; Thanks for looking in.
  4. Hi all, Am also jumping in with a 'Hoover', this oldie from Hasegawa in 1/72. Will be built OOB with decals for VS-33 Screwbirds. Photos to follow this evening. Good luck with your builds! Cheers, Dermot
  5. This is my take on the Revell 1/50 scale Viking Ship. I know next to nothing about Norse Long Ships, but the model looks a lot to me like the 9th Century Gokstad ship displayed at the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo, Norway. The kit matches that graceful design pretty closely, right down to the hand made look of the clinker-constructed hull planks. After the quick hull assembly was a lot of less-than-exciting parts clean up: 64 shields, 32 oars, a two-part mast and numerous other assorted bits... but this really is a nicely designed kit. The dragon head, for example, is appa
  6. Viking (IX Century) 1:72 ICM The latest figure in ICM's popular series of 1:16 figures is this ninth century Viking. The ninth century was, of course, the period in time when the Vikings rampaged through ancient Britain, subjugating most of the seven ancient kingdoms before having their progress halted by King Alfred, the great king of Wessex (now he would make a great figure). The kit is spread across two sprues of grey styrene. One holds the figure itself, while the other holds the armour, shield and weapons. There is a separate black pedestal. The par

  10. The ES-3A Shadow was a spin off from the Lockheed S-3 Viking which was designed as a specialist in Anti Submarine Warfare. The ES-3A was developed for Long Range Electronic Reconnaissance (ELINT). 16 S-3's have been converted to ES-3A with numerous antennas and specialized equipment. ES-3A's replaced the aging EA-3B Skywarrior and joined the US Navy in 1991. ASW and ELINT where used less and less and the ES-3A's quickly had another task, airborne refuelling station. A rather expensive solution. Only two squadrons where formed, VQ-5 Sea Shadows and VQ-6 Black Ravens. VQ-5 was assigned to Pa

  14. Hi everyone, I'd like to present my ES-3A Shadow by Italeri. I just finished the model yesterday after a 10-month build. The S-3 Viking kit itself is ok, whereas the Shadow specific parts are absolutely horrible and don't fit at all. Im quite pleased with the result, of course some minor bits bug me, but in general I'm happy. I hope you like the model! That's it! Cheers
  15. Hi All, whilst review my stash recently I came across a Hasegawa Viking kit (1/72 scale) bought at an air show For some reason there is no cockpit canopy in my box (either I've mis-placed it or it was missing when i purchased the kit) Does any one have any suggestions how I could get a replacement? I know there is a Vac formed one available in 1/48 scale but not aware of 1/72 Thanks for any suggestions!! E

  18. S-3A Viking 1:72 Hasegawa The Lockheed S-3 Viking was developed in the late sixties as a replacement for the piston-engined S-2 Tracker in the anti-submarine warfare role. As Lockheed had little experience of developing carrier-based aircraft, Ling-Temco-Vought (LTV) was invited to join the project in order to help develop parts of the airframe such as the wing fold mechanism. The resulting aircraft flew for the first time on 1972 and entered service just two years later. In total, 188 examples were completed. Unusually for a front-line combat aircraft, the S-3 Vikings design deployed
