  1. Hi guys, most of the time I´am into aircraft modelling but after more than ten years I gave another try to an tank. It´s the Trumpeter Strv 103C in 1/72 scale in typical swedish splinter camo. I was fascinated by the so called S-Tank since a long time because of his unusual design. The tank itself was built oob except the towing cable, the infantryman was converted from a modern Zvezda GI. The trees are my first attempt in building them from stranded wire, fleece and Noch-scatter-material.
  2. Last summer I bought Academy's 1/72 P-51B during a visit to Canada, and subsequently painted it before realizing I didn't really know what markings I wanted to put on it. Since then, it sat back in it's box. Over the past few weeks, I've started to go back through unfinished kits so that I can finally get them done. Using some Swedish roundels that came from a Microscale Texan sheet, I decided to finish the P51B as J-26 #26001, the first Mustang in Swedish service. The aircraft came into Swedish hands after an American pilot landed it there in the spring of 1944.
  3. I'm gonna regret this. I have the Renwal's Fabulous Flying Machine kits and got the "bright idea" of building the Bleriot as a Thulin model A as it was a modified Bleriot. I started with the stabiliser. The material used looks oversized. But I need some material to sand down in to the shape I want. I was curious on how the Aeroskin work so I started on the bottom of the wing. The instructions told me to lay the aeroskin on the wing and brush liquid glue on. It would seep through the skin and melt the plastic that would go into the pores o
  4. LvKv 90 Anti-Air Vehicle (84507) 1:35 HobbyBoss via Creative Models Ltd. Based upon the original Combat Vehicle 90 (CV90), this anti-aircraft light tank uses the same chassis with a 40mm Bofors autocannon in a new turret, which is guided by a Thales radar unit perched on top of the turret in a cylindrical housing. LvKv stands for Luftvärnskanonvagn, which translates to self-propelled anti-aircraft weapon, with the 90 representing the decade of its birth. It can fire programmable proximity-fused fragmentation or armour piercing rounds, which coupled with the comp
  5. Hi All, I have just posted the final pictures of my 1/48 Special Hobby (Tarangus) Saab Viggen in the Nordic Group build so I thought I'd share them here as well for the non-group builders. This is the original boxing with no resin additions, only the sidwinders are extra. The RB04 anti ship missiles are converted Hunter drop tanks using plastic card and sprue. Decals are aftermarket items. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. More views on the WIP thread. here Colins Saab Viggen WIP The mod
  6. Hi there. Just finished another swedish jet a few days ago. It´s a conversion from Hasegawas J35F to a S35E using a lot of Maestro Models nice stuff. I used etched parts for the cockpit, a new nose and extra fuel tanks, a KB pod, the RWR pods under the wings and the complete tailcone. From Pavla came a new vacu formed canopy, from Pilot Replicas the pilot and from Hasegawa the ground crew member. The ladder is also an etches part from Maestro.
  7. Hi guys. I want to show you my latest finished build. It´s the Special Hobby Do 27 in 1:72 scale, a realy nice and well made kit. My modell shows the swedish version, Fpl 53, a Do 27A-4. Sweden got five Fpl 53 delivered in 1962. Three of them were lost in accidents, the remaining two were retired in 1991. The fitting of the kit is nearly perfect and the details are very nice. I only added the seatbelts and some foil for the cabin lagging. The steps from the kit, the exhaust pipes and some antennas were also replaced. The modell is painted w
  8. Hi guys. I want to sho you some pics of my recent project, the EE Canberra T.Mk.11 from AMP. The kit is based on the S&M Models Canberra, AMP added some etched parts and two different noses for this version. I will build one of the two possible swedish aircrafts. Like most aircraft builds it starts with the cockpit. It´s niceley detailed and the seat from the box are okay too. The clear part fitts not ve
  9. I got a Heller SAAB J 21A out from the stash. I decide to try another approach attaching wings to the fuselage. The wings are three parts, one large bottom and two parts for the top so I started by building them together as I always done before. But when I got to the fuselage I only glued the part in front of the cockpit and let it set. Then I glued the fuselage to the wing assembly leaving the rear of the fuselage unglued. This way I could press the fuselage out to the wings leaving no gap to be filled. When the glue had set I glued the top of the rear fuselage together. N
  10. In 2012 I started on these: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234931616-a-pair-of-dc-9/ and finally I have finished them. SAS DC-9-20 I used LN-decals for it. They were hard and a bit brittle, I don't know if they are old. I have had them for some time now. Finnair DC-9-50. TwoSix decals was used on this one. They were soft and flexible but a little bit on the thick side.
  11. I have managed to finish some old kits this summer. Boeing 727-200 A rather quick build. Less than two month. Decals from 26 decals. Well not a Swedish plane but Denmark is close enough. I have wanted a Sterling 727 since the 1970's and finally I have one. The Caravelle's wasn't as fast to build. I thing that I started on them around 2006. Decals from F-DCAL But I should have bought new engines for it but I didn't want to dig in to references so I built it out of the box. Not a Swedi
  12. I had a Minitunnan going: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235024842-scrambled-eggs/ It has been finished. I decided to cut the front of the Tunnan canopy and combine it with the Lancaster radom. Decals are from a Revell issue of the Matchbox kit. I had to replace the roundels as they now was to big for this plane. I gave up on the thought of adding landing gears and put it on a Matchbox stand as I thought it looked better "flying".
  13. It's been a long time since I actually wrote something here on Britmodeller, but here I am... :-) I'm going to build the new resin kit of the Swedish Air Force fighter J 22 in 1:48 scale from Planet Models. The FFVS J 22 is probably not very well known outside of Sweden. I'm not going to tell the entire story behind this little neat looking aircraft. For those who wants to know more I can recommend this site: https://web.archive.org/web/20120213150808/http://www.hobbybokhandeln.se/j22/index.htm Back in 2008 I visited the "Spielwarenmesse" in Nurembe
  14. For the 50 year anniversary of the first flight of the Viggen I built two Lansen's used in the test program. First out is a A 32A Lansen "Gamma" used for tests of the Radar and some electronics. It is a Heller 1/72 kit with "Gamma" parts from Maestro Models and decals from Moose Republic (ex. RBD decals) Next is a J 32B used for ejection seat tests. Also a Heller kit that was converted to the Fighter variant J 32B using the conversion set from Maestro Models. I had to scratch build a new cano
  15. I have been building Viggen prototypes The first one is the full scale wooden mock up that SAAB built before the actual prototypes. 37-0 Airfix 1/72 conversion. Next is the first prototype 37-1 Also an Airfix kit. Built with the canards pointing upward like they were initially. Second prototype 37-2 Also an Airfix kit. Canards in the normal position. The first two Viggens had green cockpits and since the Airfix kit was bare I made some paper cockpits for them. Frontal view of 37-1 and 37-2
  16. Yesterday it was 50 years since the first flight of the Viggen so I built myself another viggen to commemorate this. Heller 1/72 SAAB AJ 37 in early configuration. It means using the small twin intakes in front of the external fuel tank and the larger fin under the tail. Same as the two seater. Armament are two Rb 05 missiles and two 30mm gun pods.
  17. Ending 2016 with another Draken Since it was an US boxing from MPC I decided to build it American. I rescribed the panel lines drilled out some air intakes and tried to make the kit look a little more modern without adding any extra money into it. I have been tinkering with paper cockpits for my Viggens and decided to draw one for the Draken as well.
  18. Swedish submarines I had earlier built the HMS Gotland in 1/350 from OKB Grigorov and started a search for the other Swedish submarine that have been made as a model. That was the HMS Västergötland from Sea Wolf. The searchtook a couple of year but finally I got one. It isn't a very large kit in 1/350 scale. The finished kit. Two of the submarines in this class got modified with Stirling engines and I wanted to build one. I was lucky to find a second kit so I could start one. This conversion fought m
  19. The Hasegawa Draken is one of those kits that is just a joy to build: accurate form, good fit, great surface detailing. This one is augmented with Eduard J-35 Draken details (mainly cockpit and wheel wells) and masks. The downside with Hasegawa kits of this era are the decals: thick, with the white rendered in ivory and the Draken is no exception. I had been planning to build this as an Austrian J-35O (with an IPMS Austria decal sheet) until I picked up the Flying Colors Aerodecals J-35F/J decals. This sheet is a big improvement on the kit decals and enabled me to build this as a J-35F2 in
  20. Heller 1/72 with Maestro's fighter conversion and etch. Sadly there is no towing equipment available for the B-version. There is one for the D.version but that is a completely different winch. I started to build the Del Mar winch using Phoenix missiles cut in two different lengths. That will give me a stronger bond so that I don't brake it while sanding. The start of my Del Mar winch is at the bottom right. The rest are a MBV-2S winch with two counterweight bombs that I will use on a J 32D version sometime.
  21. After the Sea Fury and Meteor Target tugs it is time for a SAAB. It will be an Heller/Matchbox combo. The F-model had an after burner and that made the rear "fatter". I decided to use the Heller J 29E and add the engine fairing from the Matchbox F-model. To cut both kits exactly the same is hard so there were large gaps needed to be filled between the parts. I used plastic strips for this. I decided to use the Matchbox cockpit as well as it is more accurate. I didn't like the seat so I removed it and added the Heller seat instead. I made a new rear wall
  22. Now I call it ready. It only took 10 years. It is an ex Danish AF plane operated by the Swedish firm Svensk Flygtjänst. Build:
  23. Next month this one has been sitting on the shelf for ten years. I took it out as I'm in at "Tugger mode" right now. I wasn't sure on how the masks of the canopy would react after this long time so I tried to remove it. When that worked I decided to restart on the build. When I left it I had just realised that I had made the target winch to small and received more information about the towing equipment. I started to build some of it with thin brass strips. and finished the paint job. Then I built a new winch. Much bigger than the last one. Now
  24. The Draken lost out to the Mirage III for a Swiss interceptor but here is how it might have looked in Swiss colours. I built it using pictures of the prototype for a Swiss Draken as inspiration. Since it was an early Airfix issue it had the initial canopy so that made the conversion very simple. Redo the fin into an early variant and remove the IR-sensor under the nose. I used old decals from Esci's Mirage set and Revells F-5E but they were to old to work good so I had to brush paint parts of them. Painted with the new Vallejo metal paint that worked
  25. Thought I might challenge myself for my post-Wellesley build and pulled out the Matchbox Dornier 28D. Original 1984 boxing The kit iself is fairly simple so to add a bit of 'OMG why did I start this?' I thought why go for the standard Luftwaffe scheme when there's an allover white option that I can go nuts on.. SE-EDT, Swedish Red Cross, Biafra/Nigeria 1969 But...cabin internals...? Any ideas of the layout? If I can't find anything on the original (all external shots so far) I was thinking something like: The door is to the rear of the side facing seat (where the lip is), and I'll
