  1. You al know how it is. Once in a while, it doesn't matter that the stash is filled to the brim, that there's no more room on the shelf of doom, and the modelling table is filled with 1,2,3 - many ongoing subjects, sometimes you just need to clear everything, and take the latest and greatest purchase and go with the flow. In my case this happened with the enormous Typhoon. I've never built anything in larger scale than 1/48 before, and there was nothing in the stash of that sort either, but it didn't matter. I needed it, badly. It wasn't possible to resist a view like: Trying to battle the AM
  2. Thats it, now I'm finally finished with the beast. Built with Airscale cockpit placards, Eduard Cockpit etch, RB Productions seatbelt, SAC white metal landing gear, Eduard Brassin wheels and painted markings from Miracle Paint masks. Work in progress can be found here: But now, over to the all the pictures I started it in November 2014, and finished yesterday, august 2016. The kit is nice, the the constant scraping of mold seams isn't. Will I build the Car-Door version? S
  3. Hi all, In a fit of madness I decided to build four 1/48 Phantoms at the same time. Here's the first: Hasegawa's 1/48 F-4E from a 2001 boxing in the kit decals. Paint is Mr Color and applied freehand. The seats and pylons are True Details resin. The engine exhausts are from an Academy F-4. A full description is written up here: https://jonbryon.com/hasegawa-1-48-mcdonnell-douglas-f-4e-phantom-ii/ Comments welcome and thanks for looking. Jon
  4. Hi all, Here's my just finished 1/48 Special Hobby Fairey Firefly Mk.IV, done as a Dutch Naval Air Service one, based at Biak in New Guinea in around 1960. Not my best ever build, but at least I managed to finish a Special Hobby kit this time. Previous ones always ended up on the shelf of doom for some reason. It was painted with Humbrol and ModelMaster, decals from the kit and a gun sight from Quickboost. Thanks for looking, I hope you like it. Pete
  5. Just wanted to share an Italeri Mustang I completed a month or so ago. Had a lot of fun building this kit, and am pretty certain its a Hasegawa rebox by Italeri. Although it builds up well, I much prefer Tamiyas offering of the P-51. I bought this kit at Flying Legends 2016 as I'm a fan of the sharkmouth P-51 that currently resides there, hope you like it. A pic of her in the cabinet with some of my collection The real thing at Flying Legends this year
  6. Hey guys, after few centuries the miracle happened and i have finaly managed to finish a model.. Well, sort of.. The kit is the "new tooling" Eduard 1/48 Bf 109G-6. It was in shelf of doom´n´shame for some time already and as i have moved the box here and there, i have lost some of the little parts (antene column, aileron counterwights and more) and managed to damage the back part of the canopy. So i have decided to finish the kit in what-if scheme - in the end it is an Australian shark I wont bother you with some background storry, so making long storry short - plane w
  7. Hi to everybody! First posting for me at Britmodeller, a kind of symbolic, I may say. This is a recently built 1/48 Italeri (Special Hobby reboxing) Spitfire Vc , representing a Royal Hellenic Air Force Sharkmouth Spitfire, immediately after the return of the RAF Greek squadrons to Greece (hence the mixed-bag markings - fuselage Greek, wings still RAF). It wasn't exactly a problem-free build, but with the help of Eduard photo-ethed and the recently published RHAF decals from our native LM decals, I tried to do my best. Hope you like it. Dimitris
  8. Hi gang, right time for another build. I've had this in the stash for a while, and bought the excellent Aviaeology decals when they came out. http://www.aviaeolog...m/aod48003.html I mean a Tiffie with a sharkmouth? - what is not to like? I also bought a truck load of Ultracast parts to enhance the build at the same time. Then I hit what I thought was as tumbling block, and put the whole thing on hold...until recently when a chance discovery in the spares stach, tipped of by a post on here, re started the project. Little needs to be said about the Hasegawa Typhoon. Apart from the cockpit
  9. Hey guys, one week ago i have finished this kit (built as a birthday gift), but i did not have time to create the RFI till now For anyone interested, some quick WIP is here http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235002039-f6f-hellcat-148-eduard/(i was rushing to finish the kit in time so i did not take that many shots during the build). The kit is totaly great and amazing, well recommended to everyone interested in building the Hellcat in 1/48! I have added some details here and there, mostly scratched (tank infront of cockpit, reworkded cockpit, opened and reshaped flaps)
  10. One of my first kits I recall completing to an adult competency was a bagged kit of a 1/72 Monogram P-40. I don't recall too much of it, besides the glossy tan and chocolate "dessert" camouflage it wore, and the ravenous maw slathering for more victims. I built it with my friend in his basement while he worked on some 1/24 pick up truck nonsense. He was so enamored with my awesome results he begged me to crank out the lindberg sea king kit next. To which I obliged. Of course, all this excitement and new found modelling mojo was quashed by the demeaning scolding I received upon showing my old m
  11. Hello! Time to start another build and continue the African theme. This time I’m going to build an Ivorian SU-25UB used by the Ivorian Air Force (FACI) in 2004 against rebel forces and I’m planning to build red 20. The kit is KP's SU-25UB/UBK and it's their Masterline version so it comes with a really nice multimedia cockpit too. Here's a good link if you're interesting in reading about the SU-25 in FACI service LINK. Lastly I’ll round of with a picture of the nice shark mouth of a FACI SU-25 and a couple of pictures of the cockpit that I have painted. Feel free to comment!
  12. Hello, everyone! Here I am with a simple enough question (the answer, however, so far proves to be elusive) - could anyone provide a credible source (picture, article, anything) on whether the aforementioned airplane (Messerschmitt Bf 110E G9+JM) had a sharkmouth nose artwork or not? My search ended with only a single picture of that airplane in action and that specific detail isn't visible (Murphy's law, gotta love it)... If my understanding is correct, this plane was a regular all-black Nachtjager and was only painted with RLM72 for a specific channel dash mission in 1942. Whether sharkmout
  13. Hi guys, some questions for any of you who've ordered or used decals from Aero Imageworks. First off, and most importantly, are they still around and active? Their website doesn't have a news posting later than late 2012. Secondly, how are the decals? Are their 1/72 "Shark Attack" Spitfire VIII decals worth the $29.95AUS plus shipping price? Lastly, anyone know of any sellers for them outside of the antipodes?
  14. Just finished painting and glossing a Revell (Heller) Vampire in the RAF Germany camo and pru blue scheme. This was on old boxing (scalemates says 1991) not the newest one so the decals were old, out of register and the wrong colours. I also had an Airfix sheet from their 1998 boxing. The register on these was even worse so they went straight in the bin. I have asked Revell if I can have a replacement sheet from their newest boxing However if they say no, is there an AM sheet including the 112sqn Vampire with the Sharkmouth? It will be part of a small 112 sqn collection with the Tomah
  15. Just wrapped up this Hase F-4F for the ARC 'Toom group build today while "working from home". Made a number of mistakes, including forgetting the slime lights and the little loops above the ejection seats. C'est la vie. Please excuse the photo quality, I use a cell phone camera, and right now the sky is falling here in Chicago.
