  1. Here is the model completed in its National Parks Airways livery, not at all a casual choice. National Parks are not real estate for sale. The model was modified as you can see in the building post here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235026972-modified-boeing-247-williams-bros-172nd/& by the addition of a restroom, cargo area and door, more bulkheads, nose cargo area and hatch, pilots hatch, some cabin detail, and other details, plus of course commissioning a special set of marks from Arctic Decals. I am really fond of the 30´s appearance that the
  2. Some designs just seem to embody the Golden Age Divine Proportion. I know we all have our favorites, I have many, but the Gamma is one I keep going back to. I have built it first a lot of years ago following the original boxing: But more recently I went for seconds and thirds, incapable of resisting the need to extract more flavorful modeling juice from it, building it in some of its more exciting incarnations: I have now the Arctic Decals/Dekno resin/decals set that was released after my build, to do the Conqueror Cochrane again (you need
  3. William's bros 1/48 corben super ace. I love William's bros kits, great subjects and models that need building, these are not models to build straight out of the box. Scratchbuilt cockpit, except the seat which I modified, scratchbuild bottom half of the engine, as you can see it in the radiator cut out. Rigged with ez line. The cowling is gloss black, it looks blue in some photos, something to do which my phone I think?? I forgot to paint the scallops on the undercarriage fairing. Thank you for looking.
  4. Another shelf of doom rescue. This was a nice little kit, went together with no problems.
  5. I've really enjoyed going the extra mile with this great old kit. I was steered in the direction of the Skytruck books etc and came across the exotic wonderland of South American Aviation. WOW! Spoiled for choice, I finally decided on CP-1267 with Transportes Aereos Bolivar, opened some of the doors, dropped those magnificent flaps and got some movement on the elevator and rudder. Hand painted decor over the Ali foil and finished with laser printed decals. This was my first attempt at this, and I am well pleased with how they went on. An acknowledgement to f
  6. Back in 1924, I believe, the U.S. Army Air Corps decided to fly around the world as a demonstration of air power. This was NOT non-stop, but went from point-to-point, often laying over for days to weeks at each stop. Nevertheless, it was exciting stuff for that era. The Army Douglas World Cruisers (there were 4), were modified versions of the Douglas Torpedo Bomber (DT). One of them, named the Seattle, crashed in Alaska, but the other three, named Chicago, Boston, and New Orleans made it all the way 'round. My model represents the New Orleans. It is a 1/72 scale Williams Bros kit,
  7. Williams bros 1/32 Caudron renault C.450. Airframe no. 6910, As flown by Helene Boucher, before the 1934 paris airshow. Lovely kit, Detailed the cockpit, rescribed the plane, painted with vallejo french blue acrylic. Coated the decals with liquid decal film, but the red, white and blue bands broke up. left the canopy loose. hint for anyone building this, the under fuselage joint is long and very weak, so you need to reinforce it. thanks for looking'
  8. Williams bros 1/72 Northrop gamma I love williams bros kits, they need work but always come together nicely. detailed the cockpit and engine. rescribed it!! The decals are the ones that came it the box, so about 35 years old!! coated with liquid decal film and they worked really well. Massive thanks to @JWM for the canopy after i snapped the kit one. thanks for looking.
  9. I like the Martin B-10, from the age of 8 or so when I was given a book about the history of the US Air Force. It had some pictures of a tour of Alaska by a flight of them which looked way ahead of anything else at the time. It would have been fantastic if the pics had been colour; I assume then they would have been olive green/brown with yellow wings; later in the 30’s the USAAC went for blue fuselages – and highly polished gloss finish too. Whatever the colour scheme the B-10 was the state of the art on introduction, influenced most of the turreted bombers of WW2 and indeed was still in f
  10. Hi, Something what I just finished, not the archive one. Northrop Gamma 2E, China markings from second Sino-Japan War, Hankow 1937 (till perhaps 39?) I started this about two years ago and was standing unfinished for a long time. I will try to explain a bit why it was going so slowly - but first I would like to present the photos: Here I realized, that some mud or dust must be added on w wheels, so I added: The model is scratch conversion of Williams Bros Northrop Gamma 2a/2b kit Here is a couple with another Gamma from my shelves - the Spanish one
