  1. Hello, Here's another project of mine. 3 american aircrafts including 1 and a half under british management. Both are early Mustangs with différents armament and of course different wing. 1 MTO, 1 ETO and the last from CBI There's an Accurate min and 2 ICM, serioulsly they're almost identical. The first to be finished, I guess will be the MTO one a P-51A from an US Sqdn on loan to an brit squadron. The colours will be ... Let's say, unusual. One of my favourite game , you both should know the kind of remark "are you sure about the colours ???" I

  3. Hello all I finished this one yesterday, Eduard's FW-190 A4 shown as one flown by Siegfried 'Wumm' Schnell in Jan 1943. I was pleased with how this one went together and with the amount of surface detail, quite a big difference after my last two builds (Airfix Hurricane and Tamiya Spitfire Mk1s). I added more detail into the engine but this is covered up by the 'fan' behind the propeller- I know its there... This is largely painted using MRP paints which spray very well, I'm a definite convert, and certainly made the mottling easier. I also got a lot of silvering on the
  4. I've recently had to obtain some spare parts from Special Hobby and AZ/KP and in both cases the parts were either sent free or with a small payment of around 5 euros to cover postage, which has been excellent. However I also need a replacement canopy for my Eduard 72nd scale Spitfire VIII as I managed to break some of the parts whilst attempting to apply he canopy mask, so I assumed they would offer a similar service. To my astonishment they referred me to their on-line shop where I have to buy a 'voucher' and include details of the part in question, the total price coming to over

The box has 2 of what Eduard call small parts trees, all the common parts needed for all variants from A3 up to A8, there is an additional sprue for the F series which is mostly weapons. and 2 canopy trees, again cover all Fw190 variants A3 to F8 but has 4 main trees, one each of sprue C, G H and J. each one slightly different so you can build the Fw190 A5 light w

  7. Hi guys I will be building Eduard's 1:48 Mk.XVI Bubbletop in the box art markings for 17 Squadron based at Farnborough airbase in 1950. Review here. I picked this scheme for a few reasons. 1: It was the box art that sold me on the kit. The Spitfire looks great in NMF / Aluminium paint. 2: I worked at Farnborough (now airport for business jets) for nearly 4 years in one of the old hangers that quite possibly could have housed these back in the day. 3: Being a member of Farnborough IPMS model club it was the only choice. I will be doing this OOB with a little scratch building in the pilots
  8. Hello everyone. It’s about time I kicked off my first build in the WIP section. All of my previous’ builds have been in the Group Builds section but I wanted to do something different. (Mainly because the aircraft I am building falls out of the Battle of Britain GB remit) I will be building this: Eduard’s brand new 1/48 Spitfire. I will not post any sprue shots as many of those have been put up recently. To put simply, the kit looks lovely in the box and after a dry fit of the fuselage halves it appears to fit exquisitely too. I will be utilising t
  9. This little GB is guilty of a lot of things. Initially I had plans of joining up with just this with some decals from this set since I wasn't that much "into" Tornados but then Eduard released their Desert Babe boxing which _I just had to have. So then the plan changed.... But after a lot of chat with @Aigoreabout what kind of AM stuff to add to that one something strange happened. The German Tornado came back on track, since who cannot like a green mean machine? Yes, the Norm-83 wraparound colors does really scream Cold War doesn't it? But a

I've been gone for a while. Sorry about that. Fall was my favourite season once upon a time, before there was a plague running rampant and before I had children. Now it's just a reminder of happier times. A year ago, I was a month away from leaving for England. Now I h

Dornier Do-17Z 8./KG76 (F1+FS) Heitsch crew made a forced landing near Castle Farm, Shoreham, England Battle of Britain 15th September 1940 after a low level chase by two Spitfires from No.609 Squadron, Flight Lieutenant Dundas and Pilot Officer Tobin. The tremendous air battle fought between Fighter Command and the Luftwaffe on 15th September 1940 represented the climax of the Battle of Britain, and it has been celebrated as Battle of Britain Day ever since. The 8/KG 76 Dornier 17Z piloted by Feldwebel Heitsch was part of a force of about 100 German bombers which approached London
  12. Guys, as my Duck has come to a rest due to some parts went into orkus, so I need something in between, until the parts will arrive. Or maybe more, as I'm afraid I've lost a bit of rhythm in the Duck build, due to some work issues and consequently long breaks, so maybe some pause from that will turn healthy. As for this I will return a bit more on my homeground of WWI biplanes, and now it's for some classics as well. And I plan not to do only one, but two fishnets at once. Here's what's on the bench, waiting for some paint and glue: It's the Sopwith 1½ Strut
  13. Mi-24 Upgrade Sets (for Zvezda) 1:48 Eduard & Eduard Brassin The new Mi-24V kit from Zvezda is proving popular, and a lot of people seem to be picking them up to commit the old Revell Monogram kits to the back of the stash. Eduard haven't been idle during the Covid-19 crisis, and have been busy producing a number of update sets for this new kit to add extra detail to the new tooling. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE), smaller Brassin and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents a

  15. Hello again gents As my Hurricane builds are drawing to a close and there is still a month to go, I thought I'd go for one more attempt before closing time: It's the Eduard Bf110C/D from the Profipack edition. I've previously built three of these in the C-1, C-6 and D-0 variants (you can't build the C-6 from this boxing of the kit, there was a special edition which is still fairly widely available, and Eduard are releasing a new boxing shortly which contains the resin parts for the conversion as well as the standard C/D parts) and my memory of them is th
  16. My first 1/48 aircraft in about 7 years. Absolutely fantastic kit. Royal Eduard Dual Combo 1/48 with resin and PE details. Great fit and perfect amount of detail. This is a scheme seen many times before, but I need it to do mine! Bf 109F-4/Trop, W.Nr. 8673, flown by Hptm. Hans-Joachim Marseille F-4/Trop, CO of 3./ JG 27, in Quotaifiya, Egypt, in September 1942. He flew this aircraft about a month from August 24th, 1942 to September 25th. Flying this plane he was credited with 49 shots down of Allied forces aircrafts. This was the last Friedrich (F) he

  18. Hi all Started few month ago, finally I finished this kit last night The kit is beautifull and very well detailled espacially when you have exhaust pipe and wheels in resin parts I made an error when I painted the wheels bays. I inverted the colors but see my error too late. I have the royal class box and choose the "shark mouth" scheme I painted the shark mouth, roundels and letters for a best result. The weathering is light because I prefere a plane like this Other pics
  19. This is Eduard's FAA Hellcat Mk II in the markings of Sub Lieutenant Oscar Lorenzo, an Argentinian pilot. Out of the box, it's from the good value Dual Combo boxing. Any comments, criticisms or observations welcome. Pete

  22. Hi all. I received the 1/48 Eduard Hawker Tempest Series 2 kit from my folks for Christmas last year along with the book “The Big Show’ by Pierre Clostermann. Rather than let it sit in the stash for an extended period of time I thought that it was best to get cracking on it before the year is out. From recommendations from mates who had read the book, I knew the book was a good read. They certainly weren’t wrong. I’m still undecided on doing Clostermann’s 3 squadron machine or the D-Day striped 3 squadron aircraft JF-Z. I’ll let you know what I decide when the time come
  23. Hi All, Here is my attempt at Eduard's 1:48 Lysander. This is a reboxing of the Gavia kit circa 2001, and I had the 'Lysander in British & Finnish Service' boxing. Here's the WIP if anyone is interested: I chose to model as V9289 of 357 Sqn RAF, which saw service in Burma in 1945. Here's a photo of the actual aircraft (image copyright World War Photos): You may note that there's a fair bit of wear around the cowling and spats. I made my first attempt at using the 'hairspray' technique to replicate this wear. I made a few other improv
  24. VPAF MiG's, Part 3: MiG-21PFL 'Fishbed-D' (Eduard 1:72) MiG-21PFL 'Fishbed-D', '4127', pilot Dong Van Song, 921st FR, Noi Bai, 1966 Dong Van Song flew this plane often on the first part of 1966 - and two kills were confirmed by Noi Bai pilots with this airframe. On july 14th 1966 '4127' was shot down by F-4C (flown by Capt W J Swendner and 1Lt D A Buttell) using an Aim-9B missile. Pilot Ta Van Thanh was killed as the plane disintegrated over Hanoi, while he was chasing F-105s. The kit, new Eduard Profipack edition of the MiG-21PF. To my knowledge, di
  25. Hi all - This is the old Eduard La-7 in 1/48 - I struggled a fair bit with this one - I think it's been my longest build to date, not helped by my attempted modifications - adding extended landing flaps and few others additions. I had a few fitting problems which required many hours of filling and sanding, especially around the wing roots. I attempted to create a fabric wing effect with paint and weathering which I'm more or less happy with. I also needed to grind down the sides of the canopy to allow an open cockpit which I'd never attempted before - this came out quite nicely I think. I als
