  1. Hi all, Another off the production line, and this time it is my conversion of a Trumpeter F-105D to a B-model, allowing me to build another test machine, F-105B-5-RE 54-0107 (the 3rd F-105B built). She is built to depict her when she was operated by the ARDC as part of the Wright Air Development Center. At that time she was used for, at least, cold weather trials in Alaska in the late 1950s, and went on to spend her entire career as a test machine, finishing her days as a preserved machine at Lackland AFB, Texas. I recorded her there during a repaint in May 1979. She is still there, as far as I know. My build WIP is here for the background on how I got to where I am now with her. What did I do/use? Well: 1. Kit – Trumpeter F-105D 1/72 and nose from Hasegawa F-105B 2. Aftermarket – Aires seat and wheels, pitot from a Master MIG-21PF 3. Paints – All Humbrol - 27002 Polished Aluminium, 155 Insignia Red, 60 Scarlet, 3 Green, 130 Satin White (I had not Matt at the time), 140 Gull Grey, 33 Matt Black, 155 Olive Drab, 191 Chrome Steel, 121 Stone, 27003 Polished Steel, 226 Interior Green, plus ModelMaster International Orange. I have to thank @Giorgio N for his help producing the paint masks. 4. Decals – Xtradecal National insignia, a mix of kit and Microscale stencil and warning markings, Home printed the lettering and numbers (many thanks to @Rob de Bie) and the unit badges. Black walkway lining from Xtradecal. 5. Panel lining and general dirtying – Tamiya Weathering Powders and Flory Dirt. Again, like my Voodoo, I tried to dirty the NMF to show use and the grime picked up over time. Certainly there is one image on line showing her polished for an air show, but I wanted to show her as she would have been day to day. I’m not convinced that I got there, with the Flory Dirt adhering too much to the NMF in places. Unfortunately once done there is no way back other than a repaint! I guess I’m never 100% happy! I hope you like her. Certainly for any of you wanting a B-model this is an easy way to go. Martin

    1/48 RA-5C Vigilante

    Hi Guys, I will be trying to build the Trumpeter 1/48 RA-5C Vigilante with some goodies on it. The pictures will show you what I mean. the box top the content the extra goodies. and some different decals. I hope to start it soon. That is it for now. Cheers,
  3. I started this build as an entry to the Carriers Ahoy! GB, but as I am a slow builder, I didn't finish the model in the time frame of the GB. It didn't help to learn during this build that the Trumpeter kit unfortunately has more wrong than right. I don’t know why, but I do like the look of the Hawker Sea Hawk, so I have a go in building the Trumpeter kit in 1/48. And as I like the special markings used during the Suez crisis, I am building an FGA.4 from 810 Squadron flying from HMS Albion during December 1956. The aircraft is XE335. I found two pictures of this particular aircraft. On the first picture all looks like it should be. But the second picture, which shows XE335 from the other side, transiting through Istres in France in November 1956, has the number 4 for some reasons much wider! And here is the kit. As I would like to add some detail to the kit, I spent a bit of time researching the type and the kit - an activity I enjoy as much as building the kit . I read lots of reviews and build reports. But as this is an older kit, there are not too many online reviews on the WEB and build reports aren't plentyfull either. Some reviewer compare the kit in quality to Tamiya which I don’t agree with as the detail is a bit soft and not as refined as on a Tamiya kit. Fortunately the Sea Hawk is one of the better kits Trumpeter managed to make as the outline is to scale and captures the lines of the aircraft well. But unfortunately not the same can be said when it comes to details, so there is still ample of scope to improve. Some areas which I feel can do with corrections are: - The gun openings. They slant upwards and just look wrong. - The cockpit air intakes. - The Engine air intakes. The dividing plates aren’t strait. - The front wheel undercarriage cover is positioned too far back. - The air brakes. Even when closed they can be enhanced. In addition, I will replace the cockpit and wheel bays with Aires resin parts. Here is some of the information I found on the web: Reviews: Cybermodeler Modeling Madness - some great building tips IPMS Germany - in German Build Reports: ARC Forum Miniature-Arcadia Britmodeller Walkarounds: Cybermodeler - FB.5 at Duxford ScaleModels.RU - FB.5 at Duxford ScaleModels.RU - FB.5 at Gatwick ScaleModels.RU - FB.3 at Newark Net-Maquettes - Mk.50 at Den Helder IPMS Nederland - Mk.50 at Den Helder Prime Portal - FB.5 Prime Portal - FGA.6 Thunder & Lighning - Various Britmodeller - Various Certainly no shortage on Walkaround information, but If you know any other links, please share them here. Cheers, Peter
  4. Hello all, this is my first post here apart from my introduction in the new member-thread. I want to show you the progress of my current project. Initially started the kit about three years ago, but the project got stalled and forgotten. Recently I discovered it again and heaved it up to my workbench. The kit is an easy and straightforward build with a good fit of the parts. I was only disappointed by massive spruegates in some places, but otherwise there were no big problems at all. I build the tractor straight out of the box. It will get the color scheme that is depicted on the box. Most of the main components were already done, I only had to do the interior of the cabin, attach some small parts and the windows. Unfortunately I did not take pics during the initial building steps. The chassis was already sprayed in matte black. After finishing the interior and attaching the small parts and the windows I masked the windows with the enclosed adhesive masks and sprayed the components with light blue. (Gunze H 417 - RLM 76) This is the current status: This is how it looks like when all the components are stuck together: The next steps will be: - mask off the light blue areas - spray russian green all over - peel off the masks and paint the black outlines by hand I hope that this will work out fine. I'll keep you in touch, if you are interested. Any critcs and suggestions are welcome! Have a nice day Nick
  5. Hello! My contribution for this GB will be the F100F Wild Weasel I. I've had the deepest respect for all crews involved in the SEAD/DEAD mission (or rather, I remember how tricky it was in the good old PC flight Sim EF2000 back in the 90:s) During the Vietnam war it was clear that something needed to be done about the SA-2 threat on a more permanent basis, and the Wild Weasel concept was born. A fast(ish) two seater was needed, and suitable modded to pick up and and locate the SA-2 radar. Once found, they would then mark the target to lead a bunch of strikers to take the site out. The aircraft chosen was the old (that that time) F-100F because they were available, not because they were the best choice. Equipment were different radar detectors and homing devices and to deal with the threat it was then attacked with cannon, rockets or napalm. Unfortunately the F-100F was slower than the strike team the were supposed to protect, and after less than a year it was replaced in theater by the much more capable EF-105F and the F-105G, which had the speed, equipment and weapons to be a better Weasel. This little picture sums it up best: There is a lot more to read up on the F-100F and its Wild Weasel missions on the net, and I might add that to the reference thread later on. Anyway, the plastic I've chosen is this: Trumpys model is lovely detailed and has plenty of parts which is always nice. I know about the fin having the wrong sweep angle, cockpit being way too long and its also missing all the stuff to make a Weasel out of it. I do not plan to change the cockpit nor the fin, but will make an effort to scratch all needed ECM and radio stuff. Just to show that I haven't started yet, here are the runners: Since I'm almost unable to build models without some AM stuff, I tried to keep my AMS in check and have only got this: LAU-3 and napalm canisters will be taken from the old Hasegawa weapon sets. I can already say that I have no idea of how to paint the rear fuselage with it's massive heat distorted paint/metal but I look forward to experiment on it!
  6. Time for a new project; The 1/350 HMS Hood with some aftermarket add-ons; Artworx wooden deck; Flyhawk PE and Trumpeter after market set (mainly for the barrels; Eduard PE along with Northstar secondary guns mounts, Vickers MGs, searchlights and bridge equipment and White Ensign replacement turrets; It's going to be a long project and it's a bit hard to know where to start really - so started on the hull; Removed the moulded degausing cable and drilled the scuttles to give a bit more depth - some where filled and replaced using various photos as references along with the hawse pipe hull openings; Scrapped away the moulded chain and drilled the deck hawse pipe openings; Fore deck fitted with the bow full of filler - when it's dry I'll try and drill the hawse pipes to connect hull and deck openings. Never tried it before but if it doesn't work the anchors and gratings will cover it, so worth a go; Thanks for looking. Cheers Nick
  7. Long time Lurker, rare poster, but I'm coming up on my 40th Birthday, and mid life crisis. I'm looking at buying and building the M16 Gun Carriage from Trupeter, now I have read a few reviews and realise this kit has a few minor flaws. so i would like to get reference material, spare parts and tips to try and make My M16 better than just plain old OOB. also advice on painting this beast, would like to do a Winter Camo, also I don't have access to an Airbrush, so id like to know if it is possible to paint this with brushes and rattle cans. My birthday isnt till May 21st so i have a bit of time to get things organised, will be making a dedicated file to put this info in so electronic files and pics would be really good Many thanks Richard

    MIG 21 UM

    Mig 21um training aircraft 1/48 scale by Trumpeter
  9. I will start at the beginning,bought this model at a model show with parts missing,for only £10.The trader had tried everything.I tried one of my sellers on eBay,bingo, he was able to get the part.That was 2yrs ago.Bought extra aircraft cheap,yes like cheap.One of the boxes were SB2U scout bomber,the first monoplane aircraft to serve on Saratoga. The research started,first the etching from Eduard ,the bridge is upgraded to 1940,which mean I could put more modern aircraft on board. Sb2U-1 Vindicator x12 TBD-1 Devastators x20 F2A-2 Buffalos x12 F3F-1 x12 the biplanes are tiny when, compare to the modern aircraft. VS-3SBC x12 Next problem was a display box ,most were showing to be £200.Fainted .At another show in Aberdeen.there is a trader who will make then much cheaper.The catch he will not post any(too many were getting damaged),or bring to shows,not enough space in his van.I,m in luck because he lives in Glasgow, which is only an hour for me each way.Same price as postage,which would have been,when he did post.That's why it's taken two yrs to get round to making this monster 90cm in length,height 23cm and width 20cm.

    HMS Eskimo

    Well calling this one done Trumpeter 1/350 HMS Eskimo with few extras added A few firsts for me on this build using Enamel paints from ColourCoats @ Sovereign Hobbies Thanks to Jamie and his great work with these I am a convert Also adding so many aftermarket bits from Atlantic Models and Peter Hall thanks for the advice and information. And first try at a big north sea bow wave using silicone Any comments and critics welcome hope you enjoy I certainly did beefy
  12. I finally found one, and in Canada. Turns out a friend has 2 so it cost me a Trumpeter 1/48 VIIC U-Boat which I bought today and traded him for the 1/16 King Tiger and ATAK Zimmerit to fit. Both still sealed in the plastic bags and ready to butcher. I still have that 1/16 Jagdtiger coming that might get here before Christmas so it's getting interesting and a little cramped around here. My modelling budget is shot what with the car repair, etc but I couldn't turn this down. Hope Trumpeter doesn't release the 1/16 Panther too soon. Huge box and the option to have a clear or opaque turret or upper hull. Obviously I'll have some clear parts as spares. Metal sprockets and idlers and the tracks are individual links but they came pre-assembled. That's good as it was not fun assembling the tracks for that aborted Jagdtiger I started back in January.
  13. Hello Gents, Im starting my first large build project this week and thought I'd do an online build to maybe get some feedback. I purchased a Trumpeter 1/48 scale VIIc sub and plan to do some changes. The Trumpeter kit is modeled as U-552 with the standard Turm 0 conning tower. Personally, I prefer the look of subs with the late war Turm IV installed. The version with the twin wintergarten and 3.7 cm Flak 42/twin 2.0 cm Flak 38. I've been doing some research and will convert my sub to U-380 as she looked when commanded by Albrecht Brandi, returning from a 33 day patrol Jan 21, 1944. Brandi was one of only 2 Kriegsmarine members awarded the Knights Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds. The following parts will be used: Complete photo etch from Rcsubs.cz 3D printed parts from Shapeways, designed by Sasa Drobac/DeStefan 3D Designs Brass access hatches and FuMO30 radar from Boris Nakropin www.smallrivetsstudio.com Photos to follow U-380 leaving for patrol
  14. Hello Everybody, here's my little side project while the Tirpitz is on hold And what you get in the box is typical Trumpeter, many small parts and what surprised me the bridge is molded in clear plastic Next, a little size comparison: Arleigh-Burke-Class Udaloy-Class (and just for you Brits: Type 23 Frigatte) I gotta say this WIP will not be step by step like my Tirpitz build... But anyway, here are some pictures: fitment of the bulbous bow is far from good... needed a lot of putty and sanding... Also some problems on the bridge parts... the upgrade set includes nice doors a lot of sinkmarks had to be removed... now fast forward! this is my color reverence: decks painted and construction of the forward mast: And here's where I am at the moment: colors are: Main deck - Mix of Tamiya Linoleum deck brown (XF79), Hull red (XF9) and black (XF1) Upper decks - Citadel Skag brown (thinned with tamiya thinner and paint retarder) Lower hull - Tamiya Hull Red Upper hull and superstructure - Tamiya Light gray (XF66) over black Water pass - Tamiya flat white (XF2) Thanks for looking any comments welcome Konrad

  18. Silly me has decided to build a second beast for this GB and something a bit unusual. Enter the Trumpeters BTR-50PK, a rather odd beast and the forerunner to a famous line of AFV’s. This is a fairly simple model so it should be a simple build and with some extras. …and more Friulmodel tracks, I did go on a bit of a spending spree on these last year……I really must buy shares in the company! …and not quite the PE madness of the Voyager Model PE set this time, a little bit more subdued with the Eduard set this time. It maybe a few weeks before I can start this one as I have the F-14 to finish first, but I’m looking forward to this build and playing in the mad again!
  19. Hi everyone, I guess it is time for my first build here on the forums. So couple of weeks ago my family decided to get me a surprise gift for all the work i put into studying and it arrived today to my dormitory. The plan for this one is to make a diorama of crew at rest around the tank relaxing in a bit what if scenario. Maybe the countryside? or a dirt road by the field. I am not a big fan of my family wasting so much on me, literally spoiling me but I have to admit, I am impressed they know me so well and they picked all my favorite tanks from the second world war. The box itself is huge. It was at this moment it occurred to me that I might require a bigger desk than my current one. The box art in my opinion seems a bit minimalistic for Trumpeter but still looks neat. (The ruler by the box has 30cm) Upon opening the box I was greeted by a lot of plastic. The kit is made of more then 1500 parts and might take a while to build. First part of the build is the lower hull and the suspension. Just looking at the suspension assembly makes my head spin around, and tracks do not help either but i am still looking up for it as it will be a satisfying job. So here is the progress so far. There will be also a separate topic for the Takom Tiger II soon because i like doing 2 to 3 models at once just so I can breathe from one project working on another

    Trumpeter Ju-87A 1/24 - Canopy Mask

    Hi all, I've recently bought the Trumpeter Ju-87A 1/24 kit (02420) and naively(?) thought a canopy mask would be available, however after an exhaustive search I cannot find one. Does anyone know where I can get one, or does someone have one they can sell me please? NB. It MUST be the Ju-87A, NOT the Ju-87B as the canopy design was different, particularly the rear gunners part. I'm struggling to comprehend why Eduard or Montex didn't provide one for this kit! If you have built this kit, what did you use? I'm not an experienced modeler so please bear this in mind when suggesting a method. Also I use acrylic paints and hairy sticks, not airbrushing. I did consider getting the 1/32 masks and cutting/expanding these, or scanning to PC, scaling up in MS Paint and printing on a sheet of Kabuki, if available. If it comes to it I will mask by hand using 2mm tape and fill with a liquid mask which is what I expect others have done. Thanks in advance for your help. Paul

    Junkers Ju 87B

    Hi Folks My first of the year! This is a classic Trumpeter kit, i.e. 3/4 good, 1/4 poor/bizarre: the front end and wheel spats are wrong in shape and size, a detailed engine is provided which is too small and can't be seen anyway, a 1000kg bomb is included which is 4 times bigger than the Stuka ever carried, the wing mounted guns and gun blisters are included but absent from the instructions etc. etc... I've used the Brian Fawcett resin AM set to correct the front end forward of the engine firewall and undercarriage and I've robbed a 250kg bomb from my Revell Ju88. The 'Jericho Trumpet' is scratch built. Regards J A.
  22. Pz. Kpfw iv ausf d/e fahrgestell munitionsshlepper, in layman's terms, a shell loading crane for the massive Karl - gerat morters, a trumpeter kit with a decent amount of pe included an a couple of nicely milled metal shells, and a choice of link or band tracks, I should be making a start on this in the next couple of days Glynn
  23. Here is my Trumpeter 1:144 Chengdu F-7-II which I completed back in 2013. It's F-7-IIN "701" of No 5 "Arrow" Sqn, Air Force of Zimbabwe, based at Thornhill-Gweru AB, in the late 1980s. The Trumpeter kit was a real let-down which is surprising since, being Chinese, they should have first-hand information on the real machine, a derivative of the MiG-21. The tailfin was closer to that of the -III variant (the MiG-21MF copy), the underside fin was too shallow, the tailplanes were so thick they almost looked like cushions and the undercarriage was such that, had I used it, the plane would appear to be standing on stilts!! Other areas were also suspect and the fit of the thick parts was bad. Fortunately, I had the parts of a previously scrapped Revell MiG-21PF which came in handy to replace and/or fix the major errors, not without some extra work as in the case of the tailfin. I scratchbuilt some details for the cockpit, just enough to see something inside. The rear ends of the rocket pods were opened up. The kit was completely painted and varnished by brush and the decals came from a Berna Decals sheet. The tailfin markings lacked the black lines and I just about managed to paint them on. The end result wasn't great but at least I managed to complete it and get something decently close to this particular variant of the MiG-21 family. Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome Miguel
  24. Started on the 9th of December... Every year I try to do a 'clear the bench' build over Christmas, this year it was this one: Not sure why folks seem to shy-away from the Trumpy 109E kits almost all the completed ones that I have seen are from the Eduard and Dragon kits. Ahh well... I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this one. Perfect fit everywhere, lots of detail, excellent etch, decals and phenomenal clear parts. (not so excellent rubber tyres tho'). For a change I broke-out my enamels for the 74/75/76/04 colours, all of which I mixed using my preferred Mk.I eyeball method. Highly recommend this to anyone contemplating a 1:32 build and perhaps a wee bit put-off by the excessive parts-count and cost of some of the 'uber kits' around just now - I got this off a well-known on-line auction site from a Chinese based seller for just £16.50 !!!!! (that's as good as giving it away) even down here to NZ the postage was just ten-quid. So here t'is all done only addition is the kit specific Eduard Zoom set which includes the harness too; And I have to admit that I'm very pleased with it. Please feel free to hurl any criticism, ask any questions or make any comment at all. Thanks for taking the time to look and Happy 2019 to all here. Ian.
  25. Happy new year to the modelling world and builders!! This is my 1/32 Trumpeter P-47D Razorback with the Kits-world War Birds decals used. This kit went together well, even though there a few minor instruction issues, but nothing major to overcome. Painted with MRP paints...……….which are highly recommended! Built out of the box other than the decals. A bit about the man:- 2Lt Paul Ellison who was shot down by flak on 17th July 1944 while flying "Tipsy". After taking off from Picauville he was hit by flak just after bombing the bridge at Conde-sur-Vire. Bits of the wing started to fall away and Ellison bailed out at about 1000ft. He evaded capture and returned to military control on 2nd August. Now the machine......well, my version of it Hope you like it, id like some feedback on the prop as I tried for the first time, the salt weathering technique it simulate some weathering on the prop. Thanks for looking, all comment are welcome
