  1. Hello Britmodellers, having finished my stölth swedish Viggen pröject (psst, later), here some older stuff built 1993: My tiny little Mach Buster from my favourite brand Tamiya. Breaking a rib, later the Soundbarrier, Chuck Jäger Yaeger made the grade at Edwards AFB, CA, October 1947.... Cheers, Tom
  2. Hello mates, that´s my 1:72 model, built in 2001. It came in the big astronauts box with the NB-52, which i have still to make (shame on me). Except more details, it is quite OOB. Stencils are Verlinden. The faster, the hotter for a oldie speedfreak like me. This is the ultimate hot ! A classic Oldtimer, that made 4.520 mph!!!!! I hope you like it. Cheers!
  3. Before i make a short break to visit friends, here the Crimson Test Tube, a Navy jet in full polished color! 3 speed records but lost Mach 1 race against X-1. I love it. As in April/May 1947, before cockpit conversion. Cheers!
  4. This resine kit is the least worse under the worst. But, per aspera ad astra, i love this plane. William Holden in the movie Towards the Unknown lovingly touched her skin at Edwards AFB, happy guy...
  5. On a rare occasion I do finish a model. This time it came out like that: (some last adjustments:) and here we go: Ok, enough. Off to the scrapyard Full story can be found here http://www.kampfgruppe144.com/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3271. Short story: Panel lines (Matchbox-style) were removed, some brass bits from upcoming Shelf Oddity set added. And then there was miserable process of filling and sanding and filling and sanding and filling and sanding and filling and sanding and... which seemed to have no end. But finally I got to dust off my airbrush. Metal parts are AK Xtreme Metal (easy and foolproof). Kit decals turned out to be excellent (save for NACA tail band), panel lines were reinstated using pencil and shaky hand and this is it.
  6. Now I have finished my Flying Banana and Komet this is going to be my next project: This was first tooled in 1955 but I have the last reboxing from 1994: This explains why the decals look so nice: Here are the sprues: Note that the kit also includes a dinky little tractor. The clear parts look quite good: I won't be using the stand though. The instructions are a nostalgic reproduction of the originals: The mouldings helpfully (not) feature raised areas to aid decal placement: All the panel lines are raised of course so a big part of this build will be all the rescribing required. Considering the age of the tooling, the detail and quality of the mouldings look to be pretty good though. In line with Revell's practice at the time this is made to "box scale" which turns out to be 1/65th. It looks like russ c has build this but I don't think anyone has posted a WIP on this, so let's build.
  7. I´ve Googled all I can and I think I found every bit of web based info there is about the SAAB 91 Safir that was used by Nihon university for STOL research. Some of the most interesting sites out there are in Japanese and the Google translate is more confusing and amusing than really helpful so now I turn to Britmodeller and Hyperscale. Is there anybody out there with detailed info and hopefully high resolution pictures of this machine? the end result might be a 1 /48 scale conversion Thanks! /L
