    F-117 Trumpeter 1:32

    This time the model F-117, the model is very simple to fold and very difficult to paint. I tried to make this model many times I took it off the shelf and put it back. Reason? One question: How to make a black model wouldn't just be black? I build models straight from the box and so I always try to focus on painting. I often make models that are a bit too heavily damaged, dirty but in my opinion is the only way to give them a bit of life. F-117 Trumpeter 1:32 the model is very easy to fold and you will not have any problems. At the begining few photos 1

  5. Hi Everyone, Time to call this one completed. I enjoyed building the kit as it was a completely new airframe to my clumsy hands, and most of the details were adequate enough to feel that I could go without buying AM parts. The too-short spinners are a well known flaw, but easily fixed. The tires are overly large and much of the surface detail is a little trench-like. Other than that, the only things I would change if I were on the kit's production team would be to add a second, simplified canopy in two parts, and correct placement of the foremost pins on the Wf.Gr 21 ro

    Well, being a "two seater" fan, i received this one today: I'm too busy with "real life issues" at this time, but i'll try to get a review out, but don't hold it against me if it's not within a couple of weeks..... Jack.

    1/32 Marauder

    With all the weight in the engine cowlings/nacelles to prevent tail sitting, this tourns out pretty heavy. The first printed main landing gear parts are definitely not strong enough, especially since those were mounted in a scary angle on the real plane. I'll try another approach, this time, the straight part of the leg is hollow with a 2 mm strong hardened stell rod inside, which sits deep (but not accurate) inside the wheel well. But the bent part (wheel fork or however this is called) is still critical Here is the experimental construction (the green one on the left is the original but too

  9. I'm back in the hobby room, upper wing halves stripped clean and repainted...Good old Tamiya paint pulled through and did the job once again. I masked and painted the upper wing markings and feeling creative, I used a method previously proven to paint the shark mouth on another kit I ruined the decals on early in the build...but we wont go into that here. I marked out the shape I needed on note paper, cut it out, placed it on the model, wet it down with a eye dropper and paintbrush till it lay flat and snug on the model and shot my paint over it. Basically a wet paper mask.

    New HpH DC-3 Pics up!!

    I really hope that HPH have spent some time building this model that they plan to sell so that they can experience what the customer has to deal with. Having completed a HPH kit (which BTW is one of my favourites in my collection) and having relegated their mega expensive Concorde to the Shelf of Doom, they are complex kits which require a little too much resolve to build for the price paid. Whilst I am comfortable modeling my way out of most problems, I found myself scratching my head at most stages of the builds thinking ‘WTF are these guys thinking!’.... you really feel as though the test

    PZL.37

    Thanks, Kev! I haven't forgotten my older started but still unfinished projects. With my new printer (Anycubic Photon), I thought it was time to print some "raining iron", which was the motto of the group build. I made some "100 kg Z wz.31 destructive bombs" (according to my reference). The PZL.37 could carry 16 of those within the wing bomb bays (and aditional bombs in the center fuselage bomb bay, which is closed on my model) - pretty impressive for such a comparatively compact bomber of 1939. I also continued with the actual bomb bays (old school: cut and drilled styrene plate

  20. Hi Guys Back again with another installment!...have had more distractions than you can shake a stick at but found some spare time again to try and continue with this build! I managed to complete both port and starboard Oxygen and Glycol tank bays which are under the floor of the radio room.A bit difficult finding photos of said area but I found a diagram giving the positions of the tanks and decided to roll with that! So here we have the areas prepared for the tank installation....both port and starboard..........

    Truer words never spoken IMHO. I do like HpH kits a lot.....but sometimes they can really sap your modeling will because of certain aspects of the way the kit has been chosen to be engineered.

  30. I am happy to say the machine gun work is finished, both wings. The LH wing turned out as good as the RH wing. That's a relief. No pics; would be repetitive. So the goal here of course is to complete whatever is required such that the upper and lower wing halves can be joined. All the work either creates something that is missing, or modifies something that is inadequate. For nearly all the wing sub-projects, they can be divided into work done prior to wing half join, and work done post wing half join. So far, most of the work I have done on the wings is needed prior to win

  31. Nope... you're not the only one. I've seen the same Panzer III footage invading Poland, Invading France, Invading Russia, and hastening to the defence of the Normandy coast in one WWII documentary series. I've seen the same footage on other docos, too. That's one busy, and long-lived little Pz III. Gaz

I just picked the nicest looking option from the kit decals as I have scant knowledge of the men who flew these. Got a birthday party today. Hopefully I can squeeze in some work with the oils. Thanks for looking! Gaz

  47. Inspiration. I dug out my Mk-1 kit last night and started fitting an Aires cockpit in it. I had a mid night conference call and had some time to kill before the call happens last night. I have the awesome the Fundecals set for this kit as well. William did a cracking job on his build. One of my favorite Spit builds. The kit is nice and slender. The wing looks great too. Hope me we can find the pictures too! Sorry. Back to the Tamiya acknowledgement! We need a Mk-1 Spitfire please! Troy

  48. It wasn't fun to remove the canopy at this point indeed... but this was way worse back in the day: The canopy recovery was a success indeed. I think it looks acceptable now. I could then finally do what I had initially planned when I discovered the cockpit catastrophe - fitting the outer wing sections. That's a pretty big step for me and for this project in general. Next step: detailing the wingfolds, preparing small parts like pitot tubes, finishing the Buddy pod and the other ex

  49. Hi all, I think that's about it for the cockpit. ‘Barracuda Studios’ Wicker Seat and cushion (BR32332). ‘HGW Models’ Sopwith Camel seat belts (132590). Copper micro-tubes for fuel supply to engine, main and auxiliary fuel tanks, fuel contents indicator and fuel tank pressurization. Brass micro-tubes for a pipe 4-way union, pipe connectors and fuel filter. Lead wire for gun trigger cables and engine ‘blip’ switch. Rigging wires with turnbuckles for cockpit side frame, under shield and floor bracing. Flight control cables with turnbuckles for Ailerons, rudder, elevator

  50. How about the Super Tiger, the one that lost to the F-104 in the European Fighter Competition? You know, 'cuz of the bribery and all that. With a J-79 engine, it really looked the part!!! It may be a niche model, but I'm betting the folks here would buy it. I would.
