  1. More Italians finished in between the Great Game in Glasgow.
  2. Tamiya posted a photos of 1/72 Tony on twitter. https://twitter.com/tamiyainc/status/939350619827052545 https://twitter.com/tamiyainc/status/939350619827052545
  3. Hurray PZL.42 was a experimental Karaś with twin tail. By the way, Karaś means "Crucian carp". (I hope they check plans, not like with RWD-8)
  4. Have been manipulating a few 1/72 plastic figurines. Example, I amputate an arm and then relocated it to make another gesture. However there are gaps at the point of fixture. What can I use as a gap filler?
  5. I don't think there is need to make a separate thread for each new plastic model in 1/72, because it is not that popular like aircraft, so I will run one thread to aforementioned company. First of all, catalogue for 2016: http://www.ibgmodels.com/2016_IBG_cat.pdf New models for 2016. Otter Light Reconnaissance Car Chevrolet C60S with Holmes breakdown Stridsvagn m/38 Swedish light tank Stridsvagn m/39 Swedish light tank Stridsvagn m/40 K Swedish light tank Stridsvagn m/40 L Swedish light tank TYPE89 Japanese Tank, Early TYPE89 Japanese Tank, Mid-production TYPE89 Japanese
  6. In short, I've started building an airliner (Eastern Express 737-300, to be precise). Both fuselage halves are slightly warped, but just enough to not fit together properly. I've tried heating them in hot water, then holding firmly in the 'straight' position, and cooling them in cold water to lock the shape, as was recommended on another site. It seems the plastic is too firm/resilient, as precisely nothing has changed. Any suggestions on how to fix the problem?
  7. Good evening everyone, I have two rather troublesome questions which have been plaguing me for a few weeks now, the first is regarding the Airfix Vulcan. I have finally plucked up the courage (and money!) to have a crack at an Airfix vulcan with the White Ensign Models (WEM) photo-etch kits, consisting of a bomb-bay, cockpit and airbrakes/exterior details. The question is, how should I present it so the cockpit detail can be viewed-should I have only the canopy as a removable item? Should I have a removable panel on the side? Should I just cut a cut-away hole in the side and leave it open? (
  8. Hi, this is my finished Tamiya Mosquito B MkIV (1/48 scale). technically this kit isn't finished as i haven't painted the cockpit frames yet as i have to wait for the masks to arrive, but i didn't think it was worth putting it in WIP just for that. this kit was a dream to build, as the only fit issue was a small one with the fuselage halves, which was solved by the removal of the rear firewall/bulkhead. the decals however were a big letdown. they had lots of silvering (i didn't apply gloss varnish as previously i have never really had any silvering on the cartography decals I've used) and eve
  9. Good day to everyone. First of all, I apologize for my English. I bought this set in February 2013. I saw a very unusual kit on the site hlj.com and I ordered it immediately. This is 1/20 scale model, it is a large size, especially in height. I would like to warn those who will buy - you will need shelf more than 25cm tall Kit itself is of the excellent quality, all parts fit together without fitting, many of the details do not require glue and remain mobile.
  10. Hello, I've been bitten by the bomber bug and wonder what kits are available in injected plastic and in 1-72. These are the types that I know about, can you add more? Martin MB-2 Martin B-10 Douglas B-18 H.P. Hampden A.W. Whitley Hawker Hart Vickers Vimy Bristol Blenheim I Fiat Cicogna S.M.79 and 81 CANT Z.1007 Tupolev SB Tupolev TB-3 Amiot 143 Potez 540 Bloch 200 and 210 Heinkel He.51 Junkers Ju.86 Junkers Ju.87A Heinkel He.111B, ecc. Dornier Do.17 Kawasaki Ki.48 Mitsubishi G3M Aero A-100 Admittedly I know very little about the single engine types.
  11. UPDATE 1: Hey folks, This will be my first WIP thread on this forum. I picked up this cheap kit for a quick build. It's a very old tooling so I'll try and do what I can to improve it somewhat. I plan to practise my weathering skills using my airbrush. I'm quite new to airbrushing.. only dug the equipment out of the garage a few weeks ago and have had to replace the needle, etc. This will be one of my first projects that won't be brush-painted. Just something to bare in mind. Moving on, I did actually own a late 70s rubber bumper MGB GT once (in 1:1 scale) so that was another reason for pick
  12. Beechcraft SD17S Staggerwing (Patrol Floatplane) 1:48 injection moulded kit from Roden The Beechcraft Stagger wing is a popular aircraft and during its 16 year production run (1933-49) 785 examples where built in various guises. Roden has issues the Staggerwing in 1:48 scale previously and the review for the GB-2 (traveller) can be seen HERE, and the D-17S (civil) version can be viewed HERE. Roden has now issued a third version, this being SD17S float plane and this version has three decal options, 2 being USAF, and the third a RAAF aircraft. Most of the plastic is the sam
  13. Hi guys ive been off the scene for about 6 months due to various reasons but im back now and wanted to share with you what i think is exciting news. I do not know if this has already been broken on here but there appears to be a new 1/144th scale plastic injection moulded avro vulcan which for me is fantastic news as im sure it will be for many who think the airfix is too big or the dragon too small.(i think not for either but anyways) this model looks fantastic to me here is a link to the test shot models http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?scode=TOY-SCL2-14156 I have just picked 1 up
