  1. Hi everyone! I'm Robbert, or C1Rob, 27 and I'm from Zwolle, The Netherlands. Like a lot of new users I recently re-found the hobby of scale models. I did some car models when i was around 15 but these turned out horrible haha, mostly because of lack of patience... Recently i picked up one of the stranded models (a 1/24 revell Chevy Malibu hotrod) which i used to practice a little bit. I found it fun and stress relieving which is good It will need some more work, but that will come with time. I had previously purchased one of those tiny air compressors from china (the nail airbursh things...) and used that to "paint" the malibu. It turned out ok but I decided that if i wanted to airbrush i needed something better. As a late/early birthday present my girlfriend bought me an Airbrush compressor. Its awesome and makes me want to practice some more. Its a Fengda AS186A (has a 3 liter airtank and start stop system). Im still using the airbrush which came with the earlier china thing but im lookin at some other Airbrushes soon. (Ultimate apex seems to be at the top of my list). My main interest had always been cars, but recently ive been looking into military models and im really starting to appreciate them alot! My dad had tried to build a dutch navy westland lynx with me from a 1/72 revell kit about 18 years back but that didnt turn out to well. I still have the box but cant find the parts haha. I really like the look and feel of helicopters and i feel its going to be my main go to although I do intent to build aircraft and armor aswell (both modern and older) Because of this I got a little over enthusiastic and bought a 1/32 Revell Westland Lynx to do up as the dutch navy version. When i received it I decided i might have taking up more than i could manage for now(over 150 parts) so decided to ground that until I have some more experience. Which made me look for something else. I then took up even more than i can manage by buying a 1/48 Gallery models Sikorsky HH-34 also to do up as the dutch navy used to fly them. Awesome model, great quality and has some nice PE parts included. Over 300 parts though hahaha. In the end I bought 2 cheap and simple kits this weekend to start and build up some experience: 1/72 Revell Bell UH-1 SAR 1/72 Revell Leopard A6M The stash right now(plus the 2 above) The 97 camaro and the integra are doomed. The Mr2 has a broken a pillar but might be fixable(has some questionable mods done to it though...) and the 70s Camaro is fixable: My Workspace so far(a little bit older picture, the "nail airbrush" is on there next to the laptop): And the goods(an old first aid bag my colleague at an old summer job threw away, i knew it would come in handy some day haha): I have some questions but I will post those in the correct sections. (one of the here) Sorry for the Long and picture heavy post! I've been enjoying lurking around here and I knew it was only fair to start of with lots of pictures in return hahaha(I put most of them in the spoiler tag to save some unaware 56k people. I hope to learn a lot here and hopefully share some of my projects and progress. Thank you!
  2. This was my Christmas gift from the family 2014 I'm not going to lie about this model , For a 1/48 scales this is a monster beast. This will start in about week or two . Enjoy Rick Big Ed's eduards photo etch set This kit is so big . I had to get a plastic tub out to was parts off ..
  3. SimPlai


    Hello to all. My name is Simon (SimPlai) live in Italy and I thank you for accepting me in the forum. I did modeling for about 35 years, I built mainly planes and helicopters 1/72 and 1/48 modern. A few years ago (I think 7), a light earthquake brought down the windows that contained all my models. I stopped doing modeling. Then, about two years ago, I decided to start a project I had in mind in 1991, when I served in the military. I hope will please you and I would be honored for your opinions. Thank you again.

    Hiller HT-2 1/48 Model kit

    Hi, did anyone ever produce a model kit of the Hiller HT-2 training helicopter, or is it a case of "If you want it, scratch it?" I know Special Hobby produced a 1/72 kit that could be used for an HT-1. Cheers

    Helicopters with UNPROFOR 1992/3

    Hi I'm thinking about dioramas, and was wondering who, if anyone, operated the Twin Huey in Bosnia during the early UN operations. I've found this photograph but I can't be sure of the helicopter's operator... any help would be much appreciated
  9. Here's my latest completion - the old KP kit built up as a Ugandan AF Mil Mi-17. I'd long ago promised this to a friend, who unfortunately passed on before I could complete it - it was delivered to his widow. My first whirlybird in over twenty years, and took much longer than I'd expected. Hope you appreciate it. With the availability of the HobbyBoss kit, this is definitely 'one the hard way', but it's what I had, and short of the major problem with the windscreen (which I didn't feel I had the skill to change), is not that bad a representation.
