Matchbox 1:72 Dassault Mystère IV A.

Pretty simplistic kit in many ways but still pretty fun build all things considering. Simple weathering/definition with Flory Models Brown Wash. Straight from the box apart from the pitot tube. Painted with a hairy stick using Vallejo Model Colour and Model Air paints.

Heller Caudron C.635 Simon, took about eight hours out of the past 26:

1-CCB648-C-D7-AD-48-CA-9-F8-F-0-C2937-D6

477-F1508-CF56-492-C-9-DC1-24819-ED87192

C20-CCCF8-8-E23-4-D06-B9-D6-DC34-B8-B6-D
 

The kit is brilliant and I thoroughly recommend it in its new release with super decals. The only piece I added was a bit of sprue for a glimpse of an engine cylinder. I made the side windows from glue film, which bit me, so I’ve made six windows for four frames! WIP is here if you are interested.

 

Thanks for a great GB - always good to have an excuse to just get on and build!

 

Regards,

Adrian

I think this may be the very first Avro Vulcan in a Britmodeller Blitzbuild, it’s the 1/200 kit by Cyberhobby/Dragon. I built it with a fair few modifications for accuracy reasons and the decals were printed myself with the exception of the lightning bolts as I finished my version of the design too late to print for this group build. As this is a blitzbuild, I have done it as if it were fresh from the paintshop. I will most likely revisit this model in a few weeks and add a wash and some exhaust stains, but for now a clean Vulcan is fine.

This is my 5th build of the kit, and I thoroughly recommend it, although a little Vulcan knowledge is necessary to get an accurate model as there are some errors in the kit of varying significance.

Kit was built OOB.  2004 repop of a kit originally released in 1968.  Stand was modified from a stand included with a 1/72 Tamiya X-1 I built for another Blitzbuild a couple years ago.

Airfix 1/72 PR XIX.

Built straight from the box, this is my third attempt at a Blitzenbuild, and the first time I've finished within the allowed time.

My first Blitzen build which I only spotted on the evening of the 27th. 299 mins of modelling later and the kit is complete.

It is the venerable 1/72 Heller BF108 kit with some replacement decals, airbrushed with Vallejo ModelAir paints and then hand mottled.

Airfix 1/72 Tiger Moth of No.12 Local Air Supply Unit (LASU) Kiarivu Airfield PNG Aug '45

 

Started about 10:30 on Sunday 27 Dec and finished about 16:00 on Monday 28 Dec,  About 12 ish hours of hands on and waiting for things to dry, a hair dryer helped considerably.  No rigging however, I can't do rigging -sorry.

So this might seem completely random... and it is... but these are two year's worth of my local club's Group Build models and it somehow made sense for me to combine them into some Frankenstinien kit.

 

So I present a 1/24 scale model of Herbiski the Crush Bug. Its a 2/3rd scale recreation of a Soviet tank on an old construction tractor with a fibreglass Beetle body fitted as the driver's cab. You can see it crushing cars on the fairground circuit all year long, driven by Jordan 'Jesus' Jamerson.

 

Built mostly in a 12 hour shift, most of which was filling my crude cuts to blend the Beetle into the tank. Sprayed and decaled today in the second 12 hour window.

 

I might need more alcohol. Or less. I'm not sure which would be better.

Thanks for another great Blitzbuild.

 

This is OKB Grigorov's 1/700 Lockheed IX-529 "Sea Shadow". Gunze Lacquer paints and homemade decals. The "sea" is plywood, watercolour paper, acrylic modelling paste, acrylic paints and acrylic gloss gel. The boat needs some details painted and the sea and boat need to be better joined together.

Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome the Unicraft 1/72 Gudkov GU-VRD to the Gallery.

 

It has been quite a challenge as you can imagine to get this one finished in the 24 hours of this Blitzenbuild GB, but thanks to your support encouragement and humour, here it is.

 

If you look really carefully you may just be able to make out some of the original kit parts under the filler !

 

Cheers Pat

Glide your tank right onto the battlefield. That was the idea behind the Baynes Bat. And to research this idea a 1/3 scale mock-up was made and flown. This is the subject of my 1/72 scale kit from the Jach company. 

I bought this kit a while ago, just out of curiosity, and this group build meant it was built !

1/72 Airfix Bf109E-4, flown by Helmut Wick in November 1940, prior to his death in combat with John Dundas of 609 Squadron.  The build took 10hrs and 10 mins in total (I went for the three-day option).  I went with Airfix's colour calls which should explain the not-very-accurate paint shades.

Thanks very much to everyone involved in the running of the Blitzenbuild - it's been great.

 

Cheers,

It was Dave from Devon's cereal box SE5a that inspired me to build this tiny 1/159 scale kit. I happened to have the right Xtracolour paints (still not dry!!) and some roundels. I'm particularly pleased with the fin flash which was a combination of blue paint and a red and white decal cut up from a 1/32 Matchbox Tiger Moth - oh and my lovely lady donated a few strands of her hair for my rigging.
