  1. Today I want to present "civilian" version of TBM-3 - Tanker 74 Model is based on Hobby 2000 TBM-1C (#72010) kit, decals from Draw Decal (No. 72-TBM-1) with some scratch added (to be honest - some decals are home-made too; Draw Decals set have not enough digits to make a complete miniature). There's no WiP from that build but if someone will be interested in short story - I've some photos in backup Some data (and photos) about this Tanker you can find e.g. HERE. Back to model (LARGE photos - click on miniatures)
  2. I want to present report from work on my new project - Tanker from "Always" Steven Spilberg's film. I base on Italeri kit - quite old, but not vintage. I hope it's better base than Airfix kit from '70 Unfortunately plastic used by Italeri wasn't too good and a lot of parts have rounded edges (even in places where you'll expect square ones). I have a decal set for "Tanker 59" from Draw Decal, but I plan to build "Tanker 57" - she had a nicer tank on board. Because tankers are most interesting on the bottoms I started some works on landing gears and their wells.
  3. Scratch-built, with decals from Arctic Decals of Finland. There were several models and modifications. I scratched this model a few months ago, posting some images of it still without decals here in Britmodeller in the "British Heinkel" post: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235025835-the-british-heinkel/
  4. Morning all! This is my quick OOB (almost) build of the Roden VC-10 K3 1:144 kit. Nothing much more to say so lets get on with it : Kit: Roden VC-10 K3 1:144 (From my LMS- Mike's Models) Paints: Vallejo Model Air custom-mixed grey (based on reference photos) Vallejo Model Air black, Model Color silver Washes: Vallejo Model Wash-dark grey Additional Details: Refuelling basket (inside the central refueling pod) made from rolled up tissue paper Spare RAF roundels had to be used on the side of the fuselage due to an error made by myself Flaps were produced, cutting out the kit's flaps
  5. The Roden Vickers Super VC10 K3 Type 1164 Tanker Jet Model Kit has now arrived, furthermore the Vickers Super VC10 Type 1151 BOAC kit is now back in stock too! For full details, please see our newsletter.
  6. Roden have a nice bit of kit coming soon; the 1/144 RAF Vickers Super VC10 Type K3 1164 Tanker! For full details, please see our newsletter.
  7. Hello! This is the first 'proper' build i've done for a few years, I'm rusty but back with vengeance. Far from perfect re: paint job, but it's a notorious kit to build. I've neatened up the cockpit and airbrake since I took these pics too. Can't wait to get my hands on the new tool Airfix kit! Up next: 1/200 Vulcan in anti flash. If anyone can tell me what image extensions i can use here, i'd be grateful. They all reject for me! In the meantime, pics here: http://postimg.cc/gallery/2lgjzw3xg/31c2f0a1/ Chris

  9. Hi all, I ordered an Italieri KC-135A Stratotanker today for £32.50 (bit of a bargin I thought) and was looking for some background to get me in the mood etc. Does anyone know what the airborne deterrent formations of B52s and KC135s would consist of? (How many of each, where they would be based, what their routes would be and so on). Advice on the kit would also be much appreciated! Many thanks.
  10. Russian GAZ-66 Oil Tanker Trumpeter 1:35 History The GAZ-66 light utility truck entered production in 1964 at the Gorky Automobile Plant, where it replaced the earlier GAZ-63 on the lines. Originally produced for both civilian and military use, the military versions gradually became paramount. The overall design follows the usual Soviet guidelines of relative simplicity, strength and versatility. There are no design frills on the GAZ-66 as it is an orthodox forward control design capable of being produced in, or modified into, many different versions. This truck had been produced for
  11. GMC CCKW 750 Gallon Tanker Model: HobbyBoss 83830 Born into battle during World War 2 this warrior fought it's way across Europe with the 3rd Army and kept the Army Air Corps fighters fueled. But, as with all old warriors and with the wars end it was put out to pasture. It's now 1949 and along comes Army Mechanic PFC Alvin King, demobbed from occupation duties and now an ex-GI looking to use his GI Bill to start a business. So, he looks for a truck to keep the locals back home supplied with fuel oil. On going to a surplus sale in Memphis he picks up this old tired tanker. She needs a lit
  12. Been off the scene for a while sorting things out following my Redundancy (a good thing actually!) So, here we go with a new build using the recent HobbyBoss release of the GMC 750 Gallon Tanker. Over the last few days I have been putting together this really good kit This is a busy kit! And has plenty of parts but, there are NO rubber tyres (I know some of you hate those) There is quite a detailed engine which is an integral part of this build and you can't get past this. The chassis has 17 parts + the engine which in itself comprises 20 parts This construct is very stable
  13. All, I've never done any maritime modelling before but I'm looking for some kits of modern tankers to build for the office where I work. I've been doing some aircraft for a while and thought it might be an interesting project to have a crack at. That said, I can't actually find any kits of modern tankers anywhere? Do such things exist? I see that Revell do a T2 tanker that seems rather difficult to come by, but I can't find anything else. Any suggestions, tanker or other merchant ships, would be appreciated. Cheers, Richard
  14. Dodge L-700 Tractor Unit with Chrome tanker or Box Van Trailer 1:25 Plastic kit from Lindberg Models The Dodge L700 is a medium duty truck manufactured by Dodge trucks in the USA using components from there A100 light duty trucks. The L-700 was available with either a Dodge, or Cummins V8 engine.

The Dodge L-700 was available as a tractor with a very short 89inch wheelbase, and a steering angle of 50o for great man
