    HobbyBoss B-24 Liberator

    Hey folks, I'm normally a lurker here, I don't tend to post outside of my regular sites just read other peoples stuff. But I've been told I should post this over here so here I am, cap in hand showing you my finished bird. It's out the box and yes I'm fully aware of all the shortcomings of the kit, Davis Wing, Turrets yardy yar etc etc I've put Master Model Barrels on it and some RB belts, not that you can see them, but other than that she's El Naturel Finished in Alclad, Gunze and Ushchi metal powders, weathered with Mig products. Thanks for looking and be gentle......... Gary

    Trumpeter Su-27 1/32 finally finished... I tried to build heavy weathered Flanker based above polar circle with units called “ Guardians of the North”. I used Zacto intakes, nosecone, missiles and pylons. Aires Cockpit, wheel wells and exhausts. Armory resin wheels. Front windshield is a scratch build as kit part was really bad in shape. Colors - MRP paint including silver primer, transparent paints and metalizers. Tamiya panel liners and weathering Masters used.

    Hi everyone, This is the Revell 1/32 F-4E kit with some aftermarket help from GT Resin in the form of exhausts, belly strap and intakes, new nose from Sierra Hotel, Aim-9Js from Cutting Edge and a cockpit from Legend. The aim was to depict a late 70's USAFE jet from the 50TFW at Hahn AFB using AirDoc decals, put her in-flight and add some lighting to bring her to life. This was sort of a learning project for me, picking up on the excellent tips found in this forum, trying out some new techniques and learning from my mistakes (of which I made a few - see build for details!). In the end it took 2 and a half years to complete so the ratio of builds to acquires is way out of kilter. Anyway, on to the pics... And with lights on... Overall, a challenging but fun build of the impressive Phantom! Build thread is here ... https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/58988-132-revell-f-4e-what-could-possibly-go-wrong/&page=1 Many thanks for looking!

    BIG 1/18 Fw190 *scale photo added*

    Hi All, Here’s the rather huge Hobby Boss 1/18 Fw190. It’s a much maligned kit - not enough detail, over simplistic etc. However It’s actually excellent in lots of ways; it’s pretty cheap for the size of kit, I picked this up for £65 and yes, it is simple and lacking in detail for the size, but it makes up for that in quality of fit and the surface detail is exceptional, so it’s basically a great canvas for detailing and paint. I had fun making it. This thing is huge! Guy Build thread here:

    While I was at Nationals, I saw some nice 1/32 resin display bases from ZM and Squadron, and it got me inspired. I bought one of the PSP bases from Squadron, because it was big enought for my P-38, and I could finish it myself; plus I knew I could never make my own that well for the 22 bucks it cost me to buy it. Not to disparage a company I respect, but frankly, I was not really happy with the detailing or the texture on the ZM bases, especially the carrier deck one. So I picked up a couple sets of the PE US Carrier deck tie down strips from Tom's Model Works, ordered some 3/16" plastic channel from Plastruct, and set about making my own base when I got home. After a lot of trial and error, here are some quick shots with my phone of the final product, with my Hellcat on it as intended. What do you guys think? Tim

    Swiss F-5E

    Here are some pictures of my recently finished Kittyhawk F-5E in Swiss markings. Despite the shortcomings that have been mentioned about the kit, I enjoyed the build and would call it a good kit overall. I will be building more of Kittyhawk's F-5's in the future. The model was build straight from the box, with LED's added to the landing lights and Swiss decals and masks that I drew using the Matterhorn Circle 1/48 F-5 decals as a guide. Thanks for looking!

    P-51 B Mustang III

    Here are a few photos of my newly built Trumpeter P-51 B Mustang III, built straight out of the box, except for seatbelts. I was wondering how this kit would build (bought for less than 30 euro) after reading so much about it. It built quite easily. Most enjoyable, actually! And in time to take the kit to Telford in 3 weeks time. I hope you like the result; the pilot seems to be quite happy to pose for a photo next to it... I hope to get another 1/32 kit ready for the deadline, but not sure I will make it... Thanks for watching ! Nic

    ME-262 Trumpeter 1/32

    Hi Guys, Here is my completed Me-262. A not so easy project eventually so I'm happy it's done. This is one of the two Rudolf Sinner's aircrafts with this original camo pattern. I chose to paint it 70/82/76 to match the high color contrast that can be observed on the photos. Wheels are form Barracuda, seat from Quickboost, the rest is straight from the kit. Cheers Tristan

    Bf-110G4 Night Fighter.

    I have had a thing for this machine for longer than i cam remember! I was planning to upgrade the old Revell kit when along came Dragon & AIMS. The AIMS set is an absolute dream to use. All the parts are designed to be "drop in" with no surgery is required, the parts needed to modify the 110 to a G4 just replace the kit parts. The Master turned brass aerials are included in the set along with a very extensive etched set. I didn't use the etched seat belts, instead I used a set from HGW. Initially the set came with a vac form rear canopy, but AIMS now do a clear resin part which is very nicely cast. I used Xtracolor RLM matched paints for the colour scheme. Thanks for looking, Angelo

    Hi guys, I am proud to present my recently completed 1/32 A-4K Skyhawk. I used the Trumpeter A-4F as the base for my build. Added a Wolfpack resin cockpit and used the Eduard exterior photoetch set. Airbrushed with custom mixes of Tamiya acrylics. Decals are from my own KMNZ Decals custom range (available for purchase worldwide via KMNZdecals@gmail.com).

    1/32 Tamiya F-16CJ

    Finished photos of my TAMIYA,Inc. 1/32 F-16CJ. Built with AMS Resin ECM pod and L/h HARM pod, Eduard Model Accessories SNIPER pod, MASTER Static Dischargers, AIRES HOBBY MODELS wheels, GT Resin R/h targeting pod pylon and VideoaviationGBU-38s. Decals were a mixture of kit and Astra Decals. Painted with MRP & Mr Hobby. Seat belts are scratch built, Bomb rack is robbed from the Academy Hornet. I was planning on using the Quickboost seat and Aires wheel wells but they both were far too small! Massive thank you for Joe at Yellow Cake Models for sending my a new lower fuselage after I butchered mine and Fanch at Fancherello models & photos for cutting me the stencils for the tail.

    1/32 Marauder

    Hello there. Maybe you know this phenomenon. I have several more or less unfinished models lying around. And then, something completely new comes to mind. Some months ago, I was thrilled by the idea of a 1/32 Marauder, and despite my other builds, I started to work on a 3d-model. I already printed some major parts. I now have some days of leave of absence, and hope to make some progress (as well with my other unfinished projects). But who knows when I get distracted with something completely new again Propellers and engines are lent from a free 3d-model for visual demonstration only. Here is a picture of an early stage, where you can see how the wings are made of several segments: The main fuselage is divided into three sections due to the maximum build-volume of my 3d-printer (about 20 cm). The left and right halves are 0,5 mm apart, with a recessed line in the middle. The three sections are first glued together. This approach helps to keep alignment. Otherwise, gluing six separately printed fuselage parts together while keeping alignment would be a nightmare. On the fuselage, I already scribed the panel-lines, with the drawing in the Warpaint book as a reference. The fuselage is now more or less ready to be sawed apart into left and right halves to get access into the interior. The most important "tool" when doing this kind of modelling: Cheers Alex

    A-4N Ahit 1/32 Trumpeter

    Hi guys, I would like to present my other project, A-4N Ahit tail number 389. I used the Trumpeter A-4M kit with Wingman Models A-4N upgrade set, AMS corrected intake, wheels and refueling probe, Aires cockpit set with homemade upgrades to N version and Eduard exterior, flaps and slats set and Isradecal decals. I used MRP paints and Ammo of Mig washes and Oilbrushers as usual. As the source of information and pictures, I used Double Ugly Book A-4 in IAF service. Thank you for all comments...

    When I had to spend some time in the ICU earlier this year I made a promise to myself: Should I get out of this somehow, I would build and COMPLETE a model as soon as possible - and I did. It's the Trumpeter A-4M kit with IsraCast conversion and IsraDecals. Colors are Gunze. Hope you'll like what you see. Lothar

    Hi all, I've been chomping at the bit to get my hands on the new kit from HobbyBoss - and have splurged out for two of the beasts; one to do an RAF Coastal Command Liberator Mk.VI (which will be the subject of this thread) and the second to convert to a Privateer. The Coastal Command bird will be my entry into the Multi-Engine Group Build starting Jan 1st - and I'll move this thread over when the time comes. In the interim, with all the interest (and controversy) around this new release, and in parallel with writing up the review for LSP, I thought making a start on some of my planned fixes would be in order, and not debar it from entry in the Group Build. Some place-holder images for now... And that wing cross section that's caused so much comment - as said elsewhere I have a plan, which I think will work and, tomorrow, I'll post a comparison of the kit cross section with a 22% Davis B-24 type airfoil - watch this space! I'm hoping this thread will be like the one where I built/corrected the Revell He219 - with the LSP community chipping in with thoughts/ideas/reference material. All input appreciated - but no hyperbole please - keep everything constructive eh? Have fun! Iain

    hello I'm working on a pair of Tamiya's superb kits: a Mustang and a Corsair, both being built together as a Black&White project. I've been waiting a biy before sharing those as I wasnt too sure how this would turn into. The Corsait will probably be Ira Kepford's second Corsair which is very well pictured on both sides, the Mustang will be the famous Lou IV both for the fun of tackling the blue/green color issue on my way and because this plane and his famous pilot had their fatal fate not very far away from where I live. The Corsair has been started by using Brassin's set, the pit is superb, the engine too...but i'm making a step back with the latter as it doesnt allow a clean closed display with the provided cowlings. I'm now working on the kit's engine and will keep the Eudard one for a separate display. I've added a HGW harness set that I've been whitening to keep in the topic. I've been working on the Mustang the same way with personal work on he engine: casing texturing, wiring and bits. I also worked the wings and tried to replicated some worn puttying by working layers of surfacer. I used two tines of surfacer to help controlling that. As sanding is feathered, actually filled rivets extend a bit further that the surfacer color. The cockpit is done with some Barracuda add ons and I used some RBrinzan's etched templates for the floor. so now I'm working on the Corsair's kit's engine and the Mustang wheel wells ! bye Fanch

    Cheers everybody, it looks like I have found my next big project after finishing the big Viking - something pretty much out of my comfort zone. The CH-53E / MH-53E is a more than fascinating aircraft and among my all-time favourite helicopters. Based on a free nicely proportioned and correctly dimensioned Sketchup model I have found a few years ago, I have spent hours making the file printable on my newly acquired Creality CR-10S FDM printer. Over 100 hours of printing later, I have an almost complete CH-53E fuselage in 1/32nd scale: The fuselage was printed using PETG; my first trials with HIPS were not very successful as I've experienced enormous warping and bad layer adhesion, despite rather high temperature settings and the enclosure I've built for my printer. PETG does not sand as nicely as ABS or HIPS but is very easy to print and much easier to sand than PLA. The rotor will be more difficult as the CAD data is not complete - most of it will have to be scratchbuilt. There is no interior either, so all of this will have to be made from scratch as well. I have to admit I am not yet 100% sure if I will build a CH-53E or a MH-53E as both of them are impressive and important aircraft. The CH-53E will be easier to build as I have the sponsons and external fuel tanks; the MH-53E is a bit more tempting as it is even more special than the CH. Time will tell. In the meantime, if anyone has the 1/48th scale Academy MH-53E in his stash, I would be very interested in getting high-res scans of the instructions and the decal sheet. Would be great if someone could help me with that. What do you think - CH or MH? And no, Airforce versions are not an option and building both of them is not really an option either...

    My precious place

    After I changed the house, I was able to set up my showcases for models. However, I have not yet managed to arrange my work space. I hope I can do that soon. At the moment, the exposure space looks like that. The contents of the showcases will change over time, but at the moment, the whole space is busy. Florin

    Well there she is. A bit late in the weekend, but finally had time to take pictures and post them here. This is my latest build. I started this build in June 2016 but it stalled due to becoming a father again, so the better part of 2017 was a lost year for modelling. Anyway, it doesn't matter, because I finished the bird! When I first heard of this conversion I had to have it. I had seen pictures of it as a kid and it always struck me as such an advanced design, almost alien like. I bought the excellent book about this plane from Cristoph Vernaleken and Martin Handig. These men have done a lot of research on this subject and their book and website http://ju388.de is invaluable if you want to model this plane. But I have to say, the book is not written with the modeler in mind. So I think that about 30/40% of my time went into research. John form AIMS did a stellar job in researching and creating the conversion, but there was still room for improvement.. With a lot of searching on the web, visiting several obscure forums, and with a little help from people here, I had enough info to make the most accurate representation of it to my ability. In the process you learn a lot about your subject which is one aspect I like about modeling. Anyway, I'm not going to repeat all the steps I have taken in the build. If you're interested you can visit my WIP-thread here on LSP: Link. But I'll give a short summary of what I used for this build. Model: Revell Ju88 A4 Conversion: AIMS Ju388 L-1 Aftermarket: Henri Daehne propellers Anttena: scratch build with Albion Alloy fit and slide tubes Instrument panel: Designed and 3D printed instrument panel Painting: Mr. Paint (primarily) Weathering: AK Interactive Paneliner So, there you have it. Without further ado, here are the pictures. Please feel free to ask questions or give critique (don't hold back, I can take it). Wouter

    1/32 Trumpeter SU -27UB

    Hi Guys This is the , OTB the only addition are the resin ejector seats. the kits come together rather well, and I used the Hataka paint sets, which are superb, also I have 2 reed oak figures, 7 more to add, also used fox bat masking stencils , but the adhesive is very strong, so I ended up making my own. hope you enjoy. The Sukhoi Su-27 (Russian: Сухой Су-27; NATO reporting name: Flanker) is a twin-engine supermanoeuvrable fighter aircraft designed by Sukhoi. It was intended as a direct competitor for the large United States fourth-generation fighters such as the Grumman F-14 Tomcatand F-15 Eagle, with 3,530-kilometre (1,910 nmi) range, heavy aircraft ordnance, sophisticated avionics and high manoeuvrability.

    Hi guys, This is old Hasegawa kit representing F-16A Netz of Israeli Airforce. it's one of the two kits I have build together as a double build. Her twin is a F-16A Netz #107 AIrcraft F-16A Block 10 S/N 78-0336 was delivered to Israel in Jan 1981. Originally assigned to 110Sq. "The Knights of the North". It finished it's service at Ovda AFB with 115 "The Flying Dragon" Sq. aka "Red" Squadron. The kit itself is very old Hasegawa mold with raised panel lines and rivets. I had to scribe and rivet whole surface and wings. Hasegawa plastic is hard and brittle so this part of the build was a nightmare. I gave up to rescribe the bottom of the fuselage and decided to use airbrush and weathering in my favour. I used following extras during build: True Details cockpit for F-16A... . Glareshield is too wide to close the canopy so I had to build both kits with opened canopy. KASL exhaust for Academy kit Aires wheel bays for Academy kit Scale Aircraft Conversion metal landing gear for Academy kit Isradecal Wheels Center tank from Tamiya F-16CJ kit Sidewinder register - converted from Tamiya's F-16CJ AIM-9M AMS Resin AN/ALQ-119 ECM-Pod Tailart and insignias are airbrushed using my homemade masks. Other decals are from Isradecal. Paints: Mr Paint colors and Mr Paint washes Thanks and regards,

    Well we finally are finished,after a few setbacks and rebounds...Big thanks to Roden for designing and producing this kit...no one else would have done it.

And thanks for the pic Barney. 1954..an early one.

    The model that reached me the day before the new year. I couldn't wait and decided to take him to the workshop right away. The model F-5F from Kitty Hawk is a typical model of this manufacturer, definitely I not recommended to people who don't like fighting with matter. Cut without sense, with disappearing rivets and dividing lines. As I mentioned a typical KH model. I chose different painting versions than in the set using the Two Bobs decal. Model made straight from the box So much talk, time for the model: F-5F VCF-111 Kitty Hawk 1:32

    1/32 ZM Horten 229 / Eday 2018

    Hello gentlemen, Have been quite busy lately with EDay IPMS contest and being on leave, and just got round to post this. The kit is the Zoukei Mura 1/32 Horten 229 and it was my first kit from ZM and one of my planned contest entry for EDay 2018. In all honesty i was really positively pleased with the engineering and the fit of the parts on the kit and i have since added a couple of the ZM 32nd kits to the stash and am looking forward to building them. To the basic kit i have added HGW textile harnesses, Master brass barrels, ZM resin weighted wheels and UVDR woodgrain decals. The initial plan was to have the wings displayed on a trestle which i had scratchbuilt but did not have time to properly paint and weather in time for the contest in Prague. Scratchbuilt items were added to the kit in terms of wiring and some missing items. All paints were MRP and tamiya, metallics were Alclads. The exhaust heatshield metallic plating was done by foiling (thanks @Out2gtcha). Weathering was done using Ammo MIG products including filters, washes and pigments, and prismacolor pencils. I finished the kit one night before the deadline and managed to pack it safe and sound for the two leg trip to Czech Republic. To my total surprise, the Horten won best aircraft of show in the hobby category scale 1/40 and above! Happy days! Thank you for checking the post Karim On Brian's suggestion i have added a WIP section on the blog at the following LINK

    Short Sunderland MkII

    First of all I'd like to wish all fellow LSPers are happy, healthy and prosperous 2019 This is my contribution to this fantastic group build: the ID Models (now Tigger) 1/32nd scale Short Sunderland MkI/II: IMG_0639 by Thomas Probert, on Flickr The plans above are laid on our kitchen table - along with an A3 cutting mat for a sense of scale - and as you can see she's a big old brute of a kit. As usual with kits of this type, only the outer shells are provided for the main components in vacuformed plastic, and the rest is going to be made from scratch. I plan on a fully detailed flightdeck, as well as opening up the bomb windows on the fuselage sides to add some visual interest. With no landing gear bays, undercarriage or bomb bays to have to scratch, I'm hoping that a year will allow me enough time to get this completed for the end of the GB. I do plan on doing the beaching gear, and I already have something up my sleeve for the engines. John (aka Tigger) has already done me a beautiful set of transparencies, so I'm all set. I'm currently cutting out and rubbing down the fuselage halves and opening up numerous portholes in the fuselage, so I'll give a decent pictorial update over the next day or two. Until then, good luck everyone with their builds! Tom

    P-40M Hasegawa reliefed from the SOD

    I pulled this kit from the SOD where it has been rotting for at least 4 years. It's the really nice Hasegawa kit with some Eduard etched parts, CMK resin bits (weapons bay), kit decals (except for the national markings for which I used home made masks from Tamiya tape), paints used were Gunze throughout: I hope you like what you see. Modelling isn't as easy as it used to be, hands have become shaky and eyesight is diminishing, but I still enjoy it. Lothar

    F-86F Hasegawa 1/32

    I've used the Hasegawa 1/32 Canadair Sabre Mk.6 kit to build this F-86F on the beginning of Dec 2018. I was interested in exploring the visual expression of Natural Metal Finishing type of aircraft. I've used the Alcled II lacquers for the painting. With the limited colors and experience I have, this is best I can do at that time. F-86F Sabre 40, Hasegawa 1972 kits, rebox on 2005, 1/32 with raised panel lines.

    So finally managed a couple of days bench time over the Christmas period to concentrate on adding all the fiddly bits and pieces and I'm now calling my G-4 finished. I really enjoyed this conversion and super happy with the results, also I would like to thank everyone for their help , support and comments throughout this build. I will try and get some RFI pictures up later this weekend. Regards. Andy
