  1. Hello All, This is the build I have been looking forwards to this year. It will be of the most flamboyantly liveried Hurricane from my Grandad's squadron, which had an RAF roundel on the spinner and a lightning strike down the side of the fuselage. It appears the squadron rotated several times between Tangmere and Exeter during the Battle of Britain and the clearest photo I have seen comes from Exeter: The photo below is linked from another Britmodeller thread This is the kit I will be using: IMG_20200707_102503_658 by Outcast
  2. Old 1975 tooling of airfix fouga magister. For such an old model surprisingly good fits and still good decals!
  3. Anther warbird with this SeaHurricane build in 2018 an painted during the lockdown. Lot of memories as watching the Airfix’s logo… I added somme missing détails but the kit is a good base. I took a real pleasure in painting the camo and wheathering it See you! Fabrice https://www.facebook.com/Fabrice-Simon-104518141316306
  4. So this was my other project to get me back into modelling after a short break. I purchased this one from Aldi last Christmas but it came with the wrong decals, I did contact Airfix and to be fair they did send out the correct decals. This is my tribute to the Tuskegee airmen ( I love that film), I don't know whether this is a re-tool but as with my previous Mustang it went together like a dream. I had two problems with both builds, having completed both builds I gave both models a couple of coats of Pledge multi surface polish and then airbrushed Tamiya Matt to the Spitfire and Semi Gl
  5. Howdy Sherman fans - WARNING... ....this post contains a very small and very basic kit from around 1961... I've been building this in the Vintage Airfix GB - but wanted to share it here too - where I might get some more comments from the 'proper' AFV 'experts'... It started out as a Sherman Crab - with a flail attachment - but I'm going to use that on something else. It was a very naïve kit with a few challenges that I as a newbie hadn't tackled before - like rubber tracks. I messed about wi
  6. Another finish for 2018: the not so delightful Airfix 1/72 109E in the colours of Hans Ohly of JG53. Some artistic license re the over-painted swastika and I always wanted to see what an 109E would look like with a pointy spinner. A bit of silliness with a home made stand and tiny magnets as I hate drilled holes in models. Finally still getting to grips with my Nikon D850 and photography in general, will update these with better shots when my tired brain can comprehend more. WIP here
  7. Hi folk's,as mentioned in chat It's been a good six month's since I did a 1/48 scale kit and nearly as long since I did anything other than a Matchbox or Frog aircraft kit.As a lover of Airfix's newer tool 1/48 kit it was a logical choice for this GB and a return to this scale. Love the box art on this issue,the kit is well known to most now and there are a few incarnation's in this GB,I want to take my time with this one and won't start till the Hunter's done which will be a week or two.
  8. Hello fellow modellers. Here is my 2nd build. It's the Airfix 1/72 Hurricane Mk I in Belgian colors. This one is a gift for my father who is no modeller but still for a good part responsible for me coming back to the hobby. Thanks Dad, I love you. It’s an OOB build as per instructions except for the later type exhausts (as all Belgian Hurricanes had been retrofitted with these before may 1940). No weathering as my father prefers everything to be neat and tidy (a bad excuse for my laziness, isn’t it?). I used Eduard superfabric seatbelts (RAF early set). Not as rea
  9. This may be a foolish move but as my Eduard Fokker E.II appears to be approaching the finish line and we still have some time to go I thought I'd do another build for this GB. Inspecting the stash brought this kit to the surface. I picked this up for I think £15 recently from the Works. I have never actually modelled a Japanese aircraft before but the Zero is a fine looking plane so I plan to give it a go here. Its a starter set so only one schemes offered being a plane flown by Lieutenant Saburo Shindo from carrier Akagi at Pearl Harbour on December 7th 19
  10. My next build will be my first (but not last) from the Xtradecals X72117 'RAF Battle of Britain' sheet. Having completed the Hurricane (WiP here) from this: the next obvious selection is the Spitfire. Confusingly the box depicts 'Sailor' Milan's Mk1a but the instructions refer to a MkII so I shall put my fingers in my ears, go 'la la la'* and carry on, continuing my ignorance. Which scheme? I really like the white / night on K9867 but fear that it's capture on 23 May '40 make it too early. Next on the sheet is K9899 and I've read Robert's thread with interest... that's off the list then as
  11. Hi everyone. It is my first posting. I thinks, airfix new 1/72 scale airplane series are fantastic kits It work in 2013 summer. I hope you like this
  12. So here is my entry for the GB. Its the new tool Airfix 1/72 Fw-190 A8. This one is the gift set version, so has different markings, and I picked it up for the extortionate sum of £4.99 in Aldi a couple of weeks ago. Its going to be built OOB except for a couple of additional decals on the tail plane.
