  1. Some time ago in a fit of charitability, I bought an old Heller 1/50 (clearly not 1/48, how very Gallic) Puma helicopter from Newark Air Museum on an Open Cockpit day. I don't know why as helicopters are not that interesting to me - I think it was £8. So this GB is an ideal way to hopefully get rid of it! Having seen superlative builds of RAF Puma HC1s with all the detailing around the cockpit, rear interior and various external antennae fits, not to mention rotor heads in Britmodeller builds - I won't be going there! This will be OOB: I will try
  2. Grans Models is to release very soon a 1/72nd Airco (de Havilland) DH.4 Puma kit - ref. PGM72001 Based on the Pegasus plastic injected kit + resin parts Sources: https://www.facebook.com/groups/169809153136743/permalink/3343551529095807/ https://www.facebook.com/christos.koutalianos.9/posts/3541111409287253 V.P.
  3. I said I might build this, and I am. Here are my scan of the original Matchbox cover. I think I built this Christmas 1981: This is the Revell boxing that I'm building: I imagine the build phase might get done rather quickly once I start it, which should be today or tomorrow.
  4. SPz Puma German Infantry Fighting Vehicle 1/35 HOBBYBOSS via Creative Models The German realised back in the 1970s that the Infantry needed a Fighting Vehicle as opposed to just a troop carrier and the Marder was developed for this purpose. It was then realised the Marder was getting long in the tooth so development began for a new vehicle. The Schutenpanzer of new IFV came through a process of looking for the replacement. The new vehicle feature modular composite armour, a 30mm auto canon and a Spike LR missile launcher with 2 missiles. The optics and sensor are fully
  5. Hello, I would like to present my 1/72 SA.330 Puma in Bristow’s livery. Based around Sumburgh, Shetland & Dyce, Aberdeen circa 1979. Airfix kit with Whirlybirds resin conversion for the radar and sponsons. Decals were a mix from my spares. Certainly not my best effort but I am pleased with it. Thanks for looking Aaron
  6. Scaleworx is working on a 1/48th Aerospatiale SA-330 Puma resin kit based on the vintage 1/50th Heller kit. Good luck...

  7. Hopefully I will have time for a second entry in this group build - and it's a kit I picked up for all of £2.50 in the RAF Museum at Cosford's shop last year. For that money I wasn't even expecting it to be complete, but it was, so with my notional savings I splashed out on the Rotor Craft composite rotors for it, and I'll be adding those for this build. I also have some spare Merlin HC3 photoetch, which will probably contribute at least the cockpit seatbelts, and some left-over Sea King HC4 bits (if I decide to do an HC2 the armoured seats might be right? need to check that). I will be build
  8. Hi guys, here are the final pictures for the Rambo 2 diorama. In the movie, Rambo's Huey gets shot up by the Hind and a fire with lots of smoke erupts in the back left side of the heli. I wanted to recreate the smoke, so by using a product for RC boats I was able to achieve the correct look. Obviously I started out only wanting to build the Hind/Puma conversion model, then I realised I had the correct Huey that was in the movie and things just snowballed into this mega giant diorama that is no way going to fit on anybodys shelf LOL! The plan is that I can take the helis off the diorama and tak
  9. Just finished this one of a Puma HC2 at low level. Spent my spare time during December and January on this one for someone. Not as big as the normal sized paintings. This one's A2 oil on canvas. Cheers Bob.

  11. Hi guys, well I fancied building the Russian helicopter gunship that was flown in the Rambo 2 movie, it was supposed to look like the Hind, the Puma was modified for the task. I picked up this 1/32 Revell kit as the basis for the build, lucky for me I got it off eBay for only £15 including delivery. It's a pretty rough kit, very basic and crude in some areas but not too bad in others, but it's more than adequate for this project. I will have to scratch build the wings and pylons but thankfully the weapons are available from Trumpeter. Hi guys, just a quick upda
  12. Hi guys, this is my first ever kitbash and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I'll now be building a 1/35 Dragon UH-1N Gunship that Rambo flew in the movie, as this build is going to be part of a diorama which I mentioned in the work in progress. I've also added some screen captures of the actual Puma that was in the movie for comparison, which was converted to look like a Russian Hind helicopter.
  13. Pics from my mate in prawn land the other day via whatsapp. Painted white, off on a UN support mission to the Congo he reckoned. Note ferry tanks on rooivalk. Perhaps these may be of use to someone?
  14. Hi folks As my airfix Gazelle is nearing an end I thought I'd post the next aircraft for my Dad's retirement project. It will be, if you haven't guessed, an S.A.330-J puma presented in Sultanate of Oman Royal Flight livery. Not entirely sure when my Dad first started work in Oman. I know my Granddad was out there prior to my Dad (think my Grandad worked on strikemasters). I was born in Oman, 1984; so probably sometime just before then. After I was born we traveled back and forth from the UK to Oman but finally settled in the UK permanently around 1991 or 1992 (I do remember some adventur

  16. Hi everyone, I finally finished my kit, and I would like to share it with you. I have been taking pictures with a Reflex camera that has given me my brother, so I myself have been a little surprised at what can a good lens . Anyway, I think the images, being already on the website forum, should suffer some kind of compression algorithm (logical), for when I zoom on my pc, the level of detail is incredible before pixelate.Still I think you look great (recommend the max resolution of your monitor). Hope you like it, comments will be coming, Greetings to all Added link to assembly post http:/
  17. Hi folks, i started to build this kit/model. and I would like to share with all, it's a oldie from italeri. the assembly, be funny or a punishment? ... I'll see what kind of surprise becomes ....shelf or bin ??? Cheers, Pals Thx for watch and comment, cheers
  18. I wanted to depict the two main aircraft in Northern Ireland in the late 1970s/ early 1980s. The Wessex is HC.2 XR498 'X' of 72 Squadron. This is the Italeri Sea Horse kit for the square windows, with the Heritage aviation conversion kit and Modeldecal decals for a Swift bird. Next up is the 33 Squadron Puma. This is the old Airfix kit OOB with the addition of PJ productions' Vietnam Helicopter Crew. My reference photos showed the Pumas to be fairly filthy so I tried to replicate that here. Thanks for looking

  20. One of the benefits of volunteering at Classic Air Force is the opportunity to photograph visiting aircraft as well as the museum residents. Here is a selection taken during the last few months. None of these were taken 'airside', they were taken from public areas often using my trusty stepladder.
  21. I cycled out to the Derwent Valley today to see the two Lancasters perform a couple of flypasts over the Derwent Reservoir. Followed by a very low flypast from an RAF Puma. Here's a few of my photos. I missed the Hurricane and Spitfire as I wasn't in a position to take photos but it was great to see them.

  22. Italian Puma 6x6 Armoured Vehicle 1:35 Trumpeter The Defence Vehicles Division of IVECO developed the Puma family of 4x4 and 6x6 light armoured vehicles to meet the requirements of the Italian Army. After extensive trials with prototype vehicles, the army placed a contract with IVECO in 1999 covering the supply of 540 Puma vehicles. The first vehicles were completed in 2003. Of the 540 vehicles, 320 will be in the 6x6 version with the remaining 220 in the 4x4 configuration. The 6x6 version of the Puma will typically be used in the armoured personnel carrier (APC) role, while the 4

  24. Hello everyone, This is my first Work in Progress on here, I will update this as and when but don't expect this to be built as fast as some other modellers. I personally blame that world famous annoyance known as "work"... blah! Anyhow, I got this model about a year or two ago at Modelzone when it was on a sale for the grand price of £1.99. Wished I had gotten two now but nevermind, it's been sitting in my stash since then while I have worked on the "cooler" models like the F/A-18, AV-8B, Typhoon. I've started it now as I fancied a change and it's been bugging me. Well onto the picture
