  1. Not only a F2H-3/-4 "Big Banjo" - ref. KH80130 - (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234946848-148th-mcdonnell-f2h-3-4-banshee-by-kittyhawk-in-2014) but also a McDonnell F2H-2 Banshee in 1/48th by Kitty Hawk -ref. KH80131. V.P.
  2. SWORD 1:72 F-2H-2P Photo Banshee One of my more recent purchases. I'm currently working on Hobby Boss's F9F Panther and thought it could use a friend. Colour schemes. This will be a Navy bird, most likely. Decals. By Eduard, as it seems. It's a short run kit, for sure. Not saying that is a bad thing - I mean the details are pretty nice for the most part, but you can also see that there will most likely be a lot of sanding & fitting included.
  3. Next out of the gate for me is the early '90's boxing of the Hobbycraft F2H Banshee: I've had this kit in my stash since my mid-90's buying spree. I always liked the Banshee and it's older sibling the FH-1 Phantom. When I was in elementary school and my school library was selling "old" books they didn't want anymore, I snapped up 2 books about airplanes: one about transport planes and this one: My dad was a WWII airplane modeler and I had lots of them on my ceiling, so this was my first real taste of the jet-age, so to speak. Truth be told, I
  4. Hello everyone! Here is the Airfix 1:72 McDonnell F2H-2P Banshee BuNo 126678 “2” of VMJ-1, USMC in Korea, 1951, which I built back in 2000. I opened up the solid-moulded camera ports in the nose, scratchbuilt some cameras and glazed the openings with Kristal Klear. The kit was fully painted with brush. Thanks for looking. Miguel
  5. This is my 1/72 Hobbycraft F2H-3 Banshee. The F2H-3 was the all-weather fighter version of the F2H with a nose radar, increased size and fuel load, and horizontal stabilizer relocated to the fuselage from the rudder. I was pleasantly surprised by fit on this kit and while not a Hasegawa or Tamiya it was certainly better than Italeri. The only after marked part used was an Obsureco seat left over from my last build The kit came with decals for a all blue, anodized aluminum or gray over white finish. After much vacillating I went with the anodized aluminum. This is my first NMF in almost a year,
  6. Coming in 2014 from KittyHawk Model is a 1/48th McDonnell F2H-3/-4 Banshee kit - ref. KH80130 The "Big Banjo" is my favourite. Source: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234946847-kitty-hawk-asks-f2h-34-what-you-think/ V.P.
  7. F2H-2 / F2H-2P Banshee 1:48 Kittyhawk The McDonnell F2H Banshee was a single seat carrier capable Jet Fighter developed by McDonell from their FH Phantom aircraft. The new aircraft was to use the newly developed Westinghouse J34 turbojet. The J34 would have 3000lbf thrust compared to the J30’s 1600lbf. It was originally the idea that the Banshee would use much of the Phantom design, however due to changes in required fuel and armament loads this was not to be the case. At this time the US Navy recognised they would have to move away from the WWII .50 Cal Machine gu
  8. F2H-2 Banshee Update sets & masks - For Kittyhawk Kit 1:48 Eduard The new Kittyhawk kit is a good one, however Eduard are along as always offering their update sets for the kit. Here we have 3 sets; Update, flaps and seatbelts. Update Set (49809) This is one brass fret and one nickel one. The coloured parts on the nickel fret are mainly for the cockpit including the main instrument panels, side panels and controls, and cockpit sils. Inside the canopy new rails are provided. Other parts in the set include new back plate and foot rest for the ejection seat.
  9. HI folk's,if you are not of a certain age this won't appeal,there are some kit's long gone now which I built in my youth which among the many stick out in the memory as I thought at the time "This is my best build yet",the Airfix Banshee was one which I think must have been about 1979/80 just before Booze,Bikes and the ladies took over! When it arrived from King Kit and I opened the box I remembered how small it look's in the box but what we have is a nicely molded kit with delicate raised detail and despite the 1987 date useable decal's,there is a choice of a Marines reco
  10. This is it! Build twelve since I restarted this modelling gig. I . Can. Stop. Counting! And it only took me 22 months to do 12. But what a choice. You SNEAKY Sword... Lulling me into a false sense of security with your nice little Spitfire kits that went together with little problem. Making me think all your kits are like that. SILLY me. This one was definitely in the check fit, file, check fit, rinse repeat category. I'm sure more experienced modellers would have no problem, but I'm glad I did the shake and bake Airfix Vampire before this. I don't think I'd survive doing
  11. Just a quick note to say, we will be stocking the forthcoming Sword Lightning T4 and T5 models. Price TBA but we're usually a couple of £'s or so cheaper than Hannants. Please let me know if anyone wants either kit and how many and we'll see what we can do! Also, a quick reminder we have Sword's new Banshee kits already in stock if anyone wants either of them. thanks Mike
  12. We've just got Sword's latest pair of kits in stock today, the F2H-2 and F2H-2P Banshee. Both kits look very nice in the box and come with some resin parts and colour photo etch parts. http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/sword-172--kits-142-c.asp thanks Mike
  13. The Dauntless and the Banshee were in effect the same aircraft. The army Banshee did not have a tailhook and had an pneumatic rear tyre instead of a solid rubber one. This aircraft was built as an A-24B but restored to look like the Navy Dauntless. Pics by Chris.
