  1. Hello, Here, finally, are the finished pics of George E. Laven, Jr.'s FIRST P-38E, #41-2076. This model presented a difficult problem about exactly how is should be finished and weathered. The base colors were O.D. and Neutral Grey. The problem is, it served in the Aleutian Campaign of WW II, and was subject to harsh weather and volcanic dust and mud -- but only for a fairly short time. The aircraft was moved to the Aleutians somewhere between June and August, 1942. After registering two kills with this aircraft in September and November of 1942, Laven was allowed
  2. Hello everyone. I'm back with a rather repetitious build of the RS Aleutian P-38E. Cookenbacher did one a while back, which is worth referring to: Cookie's P-38E I also did one, representing Laven's second P-38E, #80, with some vagaries about it's color: Laven's 2nd P-38E Unfortunately, when I did mine, Cookie's pictures were missing, so I didn't have that to help out. Thankfully for all of you, he has restored them. I am building yet another of these, for two reasons: 1) my endeavor to build one of each type of aircraft associated
  3. Hello everyone! This will not be a "normal: WIP, because the model is already built. However, I feel that certain aspects of the model deserve some comment. Without further ado... I was researching the colorful aircraft flown by Col George Laven (mostly his F-104C and F-84E and F-100C aircraft), when I began to uncover more of his interesting story. While he didn't get the first kills in the Aleutian campaign, he did get two early ones, in 1942, flying in his P-38E "Itsy-Bitsy", buzz #76. (His F-100C had the same buzz #, which is why he "adopted" it as his own). He als
  4. Right so I've been getting myself back into the swing of things with this since the end of Jan/early Feb. I brought this little set last year sometime: I wont be using the Hobby-Design engine transkit though as I believe its designed after the evo IV-VI engines which were turned around 180 degrees compared to the evo I-III. The decals for the '93 Portugal event are yellowed somewhat: So I took a root around in my Decal stash and decided on these for the 1993 Monte Carlo: The only noticeable difference between the Monte and Portugal cars, aside from the obvious livery changes is that
  5. Was a bit of a struggle at the very end but I'm calling it done. Build thread here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234998472-mitsubishi-lancer-rs-1993-monte-carlo-rally/ Kits built oob apart from the addition of the spare wheel and the lowering of the ride height. Pics ahoy: Thanks to those that have followed the build and as always comments are welcome TTFN Ashley
  6. Well she's finished save for a couple of small details. WIP here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234987216-ford-escort-rs-cosworth-group-a-rally/ Kit was Tamiya's Michelin Pilot version with Shunko decals to build the Monte Carlo 1993 car. Slight troubles with the decals mainly on the bumper corners but from a distance it looks good. Will weather in the future when those skills have been honed a bit more. Anywho pics Ahoy: Thanks for looking and to those that have followed the build. As always comments are always welcome lol TTFN Ashley.
  7. This build started about 2 years ago and after a number of mishaps was shelved until this month when I finally got the motivation to complete it. The kit came with a set of 555 logos to "correct" the livery to build the New Zealand 1993 car. However the decals weren't completely accurate. So seeing as the original Hasegawa decals were perfect except for the rally plate one, which was yellowed. I decided to build it as the Tour de Corse 1993 car. I used plain flour as flocking for the seats and applied Kevlar decals to the backs. The seat belts were a first for me and the first mishap was the
  8. Well as a classic car enthusiast, I've grown up in a household very dedicated to Classic Ford's (I'm different however, building a Classic Mini ) My Step Dad has 2 Mk1 Capri's... He has had this model sat in a wardrobe for many years (dated 1987!) and handed it to me last night to build for him to go on his desk at work I've tried doing a bit of reading up on it, but am unable to find much information about the model If anyone has any info that would be brilliant! It has an Optional Electric motor which powers the rear wheels, but I do not know if I will use it, as it will only be
