  1. Hi all, Here is my latest completion, the 1/72 scale Albatros D.Va from Airfix. This kit’s moulds date from 1957, making the mould around 63 years old! (that's 24 years older than I am...). This is the boxing from the early 2000s, picked up for $4 at a swap and sell. With this build, I wanted to re-kindle that child like feeling of building something for fun, with minimal modifications, and not a care for accuracy. To correct the ancient Airfix kit's flaws would be to scratch build an entire model. So, in the spirit of fun, I wanted to keep this one largely

    Eyelet

    Eyelet I will now explain how to do the one-end turnbuckles or eyelets. We need these parts for every rigging point in WW1 modelling. · As prime material, we need copper wire of 0.1mm. This wire you may get from AliExpress https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?catId=0&initiative_id=SB_20181117000435&SearchText=welding+wire+copper+0.1 · as soldering wire. You may get 200m on a spool. On the other hand, more expensive from Aber, in small quantities. · As second, you need a steel wire of 0.2mm to make a handsome hook out of it.
  4. I bought this kit in November 2018 at Telford the first year that Wingnuts attended. TheY brought with them a selection of kits some of which were damaged and this is one of them. It was about half the retail price at the time. It was marked WD on the box and on closer inspection it did have a crack in one fuselage side but not much else. This is the cracked fuselage side with a lot of stress bends. Here are the contents of the box with the box with the three A4 sheets of lozenge decals. This will be a pleasure to do and am looking forward to it a
  5. B-Type Military Omnibus of the 91 Army Service Corps MTC. Ypres Spring 1915 Introduced in 1910, when most buses were still horse-drawn, the London General Omnibus Company (LGOC) B-type was London’s most successful mass-produced motor-bus. After the outbreak of war in 1914, London buses, along with their drivers and mechanics, were commandeered for the war effort. The buses were used to transport troops to and from the Front Line and were put to use as ambulances and even mobile pigeon lofts. Nearly 1,200 LGOC vehicles went on war service, most to France
  6. It appears that Roden are to release the B type bus as the pigeon loft version kit no. 737. Markings for B2125 (1918) & B2132 (1916). Link to images...... https://shop.1-72depot.com/miniatures/1-72/vehicles-1-72/roden/roden-737-type-b-bus-pigeon-loft/
  7. Hello all, I am planning a project depicting Indian soldiers in the trenches of France in the First World War. However, the problem is that I haven't really been able to find anywhere that sells these figures and ships to India. Help please
  8. This is my first attempt at a Work in Progress so please bear with me on this one. After my last couple of tank builds became somewhat bothersome at the track stage I thought it was time to build something without tracks. I was going to build Miniart's B-Type lorry but I found the bus too tempting with plenty of scope for different weathering such as broken glass windows and worn down to the wood paint work etc. I think I will need to work on my figure painting skills as this is crying out for some war weary soldiers to be added in a small diorama. I will need to
  9. Doing it again I'm afraid..... Will hopefully turn into a cleaner version of this.
  10. After seeing this little beauty at Old Warden aerodrome and wanting to have a crack at scratch building something I decided it was time to dip my toe in the water. _V5A6869 by Richard Williams, on Flickr The first hurdle was making the cowling, I don't have a rotary tool so making cylindrical shapes is somewhat challenging. Luckily the top of an Encona Hot Pepper Sauce bottle is pretty much the perfect size. Bristol Scout 1264 Cowling by Richard Williams, on Flickr A bit of thinning with a milling head in a pin vice and removing the raised grips
  11. Hello everyone! My Wolseley armoured car.... ....is finally finished! I got tired of waiting for the headlights to dry, and ripped out the microscale Krystal clear (after about 7 coats it was like pork-pie jelly) to replace it with Gorilla clear glue - much better! ...a bit too clear if anything. The saga will continue at the WIP with horses, figures and a diorama base (inlcuding AA box), but for now the car is complete. thanks for watching!
  12. Here I post this British 18pdr, built and painted by my father. I found the camouflage and made the pictures . Not many first world war kits in 1/35, so when we saw this in a model kit exhibition at just 5 € we snatched it. Sad that the crew is just 3, five would have been more like it. Placed upon an improvised diorama. The kit is very simple, but looks quite good all the same. If all were so simple, we would have a few thousands more in house!
  13. First effort at posting some drawings. I'll build it bit at a time if it works. Any feedback more than welcome. RAL First one's a bit contrasty for a pencil drawing?
  14. The Aviatik 30.40 was a prototype Austro-Hungarian interceptor from 1918 and this is my build of the Alliance Models 1/48th limited run kit. I have always thought this to be an attractive little aircraft especially with it's interesting two tone grey low-vis camouflage. There only being a few parts in the kit I was hoping for a straight forward build, but as is often the way with limited run kits there was a lot more work than there appeared to be at first glance. I added as much detail to the cockpit as I could based on photos from similar Aviatik aircraft from the perio
  15. Morane-Saulnier type 'N' Bullet. 1/32 Special Hobby The Morane Saulnier Type N first flew in May 1914, well before the outbreak of the Great war and was designed as a racer rather than a combat aircraft. Although a fairly modern looking machine, it lacked ailerons and used wing warping instead. The tailplane was all moving and only the rudder was hinged on the fin. It was fitted with a Hotchkiss machine gun which was not synchronized to fire through the spinning propeller, rather it used two large steel wedges to deflect the bullets off it. Thus equipped, a s
  16. This is my build of the Hobby Boss SMS Seydlitz. For Some reason this kit has largely been ignored by the aftermarket manufacturers. There is now an imminent release of a full detail upgrade set from Infini, but this was not available at the time I started this build. A a result this is almost a straight box build with Infini mast replacements and the gorgeous Scaledecks laminate decks. An unusual looking ship, and that was the attraction along with the prominent red rear funnel. This is a selection of pictures of the build so far...
  17. Kick-off Hello, I have spent the last 6 months working on a scratchbuilt Mig 15 and that project is now drawing to a close. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235012524-mig-15-scratchbuild/& Consequently, I've been thinking a lot about my next project and after much deliberation, including considering a very, very wide range of possible subjects, I have decided to try something completely different to my usual aviation related fare. I am going to try to build His Majesty's Australian Submarine AE2. This is a project that I h
  18. Hallo again In summary a nice model, a real challenge. A good kit from WNW, with some surprises included. My last WNW model. I choose spraying the camouflage, to prevent working with decals. You never know, if there are troubles with decals, it is too late. I learned my lessons already. Never trust any instruction! At the very end, surprise, surprise! How to install the gun? Because the holding D18 prevents rotating! It is so foolish. The cramped front position with the bombs vertically, no space left, and the gun looks tangential outboard! The kit part D18 is a flaw. The l

    Rigging

    Rigging As rigging material, I will promote today only these materials, which succeeded after two decades. All other materials I do not mention. As material I use today the product from Modelkasten. http://store.modelkasten.com/shopbrand/rigging/ https://hlj.com/search/go?w=modelkasten rigging&view=grid The 0.6 and 1.5 elastic rigging I use. Rigging has two faces. One is static, the other ones are control cables. The static rigging we will watch first. Here check the landing gear wires. Look for the proper rigging points. If yo

  21. Hallo again Enjoy the photos! Happy modelling
  22. Hallo again This is my DH2 from Roden in 1/32. Here is the rigging a particular thing. I designed the strut support plates, on CAD. In cooperation with Cooperstate Models, they produced these parts. I did this design work voluntarily. It was the idea, to create for all WW1 model a/c these strut support plates. To achieve easier rigging. Moreover, to prevent drilling the wing. On the same way, I did the Be2c in 1/48 and the DH2 in 1/48. However, in the state of assembling the DH2 the troubles did not show up. The strut support plates I glued with CA on the wing. As I need them, for th
