  4. I would like to show you the model of the jet that I love. A-6E Intruder from Trumpeter 1:32 scale as always, a model made straight out of the box. Therefore, some of the decals don't match the original. The Trumpeter A-6 model is one of the best models of this company in the 1:32 scale. Unfortunately, model it's quite complicated and demanding to build. However, this is one of those jets that you must have on your shelf. 1: 1 I 1:32

    HPH FW 189 Uhu

    Entering into the foray of my first full resin kit build, I decided on the 189 as its an unusual subject very rarely modelled in any scale let alone gods own 1/32. I have to say, I really enjoyed putting this together and while I did have a few issues of my own doing, generally, if the clean up is done correctly, it goes together well with few fit issues. The problem areas i encountered were around the following areas. Where the booms attach to the underside of the wings, a gap needs to be dealt with. The glazing at the rear of the fuselage where the tran

  9. This is a cool looking airplane, although it never made production or even a prototype was ever built, i fell in love because is something new and different , this is the first model produced by a new manufacturer, DAS WERK , and the wood texture decals were made exclusively for it by uschi van der rosten. When you compared to a P-51D, this was i really small airplane as you can see in the last picture. i call it the ancestor or the grandpa of the A-10 by the position of the pulse jet engines and the twin rudder Jorge

  10. It's me again with yet another 1/32Liberator build from HobbyBoss this time it's the 'D'. Built almost straight from the box, I did add belts, .50 cals from Master Models, National ingsignia Stencils from DN-Models and standard Stencils from Profimodeller. Painted with Gunze Acrylics and Lacquer paints and weathered with Ammo of Mig washes etc. For all the Facebook users who are bored of seeing me spamming this, sorry :D

  12. Hello all, I hope you all have been surviving lockdown by modelling-on.....I have. I set about Trumpeters P-47D bubble top version and I was pretty pleased with the kit, I have but the Razorback version and that game me a lot of issues, so this was a surprise and a pleasure. I attempted for the first time a natural metal finish (NMF), so I tried using extreme metal paint by AK and I found them very fragile and had to have a change of plan. I opted for the Mr metal colour paints by Gunze and these were fantastic and very durable when applied. I added a few aftermarket pi

    B-25J Air Apache

    This is my rendition of B-25J s/n 43-36199, as it would have appeared in late spring, 1945 in the Philippines. At the time, it was serving in the 501st Bomb Squadron of the 345th Bomb Group - the famed "Air Apaches." This group was famous for transforming the B-25 from a medium altitude bomber, to a low-level attack aircraft. With eight forward-firing M2 .50 caliber machine guns in the nose, and a potent bomb load, strafer B-25s savaged Japanese shipping all throughout the Pacific campaigns. This particular aircraft had its nose reconfigured to the strafer configuration in the fiel

    Bf-110F4 "ANA-WILLY"

    Hello friends, After a long period of inactivity, today I managed to finish a project started a year and a half ago. Again I chose a difficult path, because nothing is known about this plane, except for a photo with a brief description. But I hope I managed to bring this subject to life. As a kit, I used a Dragon, D / E variant, to which I added the superb set from AIMS, Radu Brinzan's decals for the Romanian crosses and masks for AW from my good friend Catalin Botescu, completely riveted with Rosie the riveter, FuG202 from Gaspach Models, machine guns from MasterModels, seatbelts from

  16. Here is my recently completed 1/32 Tamiya F4U-1a Corsair painted in one of Greg "Pappy" Boyington's purported mounts, BuNo. 17740. The Tamiya kit is an extraordinary state-of-the-art kit and doesn't need much to build up into an impressive model but I did take the liberty of adding a few aftermarket items: 1. Vector Resin Cowling 2. Barracuda Resin Wheels and Tires 3. HGW Fabric and Phototech Harness 4. Barracuda Cockpit Stencils 5. Montex Masks 6. True Details Resin Parachute 7. HGW Wet Transfer Stencils The complete build can be found here:

  18. I actually wrapped this one up today, and took some pics outside in the sun. It was a bit windy, so I may try some later without the white background when I'm sure it will be safe. As there is very little info available on these planes, I took some liberties. Here is the basic premise: - This plane (red 20, 196th IAP)) seems to be the only M-105 Klimov plane consistently depicted in model kits and renderings, though no photos of it seem to exist. I chose to do it because at least I am reasonably certain it actually existed. - As these were lend-lease aircraft, I assumed

  19. Italeri 1/32 F-104A Starfighter. Between 1958 - 1960 NAVY loaned 3 F-104A Starfighters from USAF to conduct tests of new Sidewinder missiles. Airplanes were based at NAWS China Lake - California. The kit was easy to build but a pain to get ready for natural metal finish I intended to make. Both fuselage halves had panel lines of different width and depth, surface was uneven and lot of sanding and polishing was required. The fuselage was initially sprayed with MR Surfacer 500 from a can and then sanded and polished followed by a layer of gloss white GX1. I used MRP metallic color

  20. April 28/20 With my KH Harvard put away in my display case, it booted my poor Spitfire down to share a crowded shelf with my Eagle. Oh well, that bright yellow sure looks good in there, but I really need to buy another display case, because I can’t just throw out the oldest model to make room like I used to. These are all keepers from now on! My next project is the 1/32 Special Hobby Hawker Tempest Mk V kit, which comes with many extra bits like lots of resin, cloth seatbelts, masks and a few photo-etch parts. For subject, I’m going with Fr

  21. Here is my 1/32 Kittyhawk OV-10A that I completed late last year. This model was built to represent the aircraft that Squadron Leader Graham Neil and Flight Lieutenant Ken Semmler flew during the Vietnam war on the 6 JUNE 1970. Both of these men were pilots in the Royal Australian Air Force and were part of the group of 36 that served as FACs under the USAF during the conflict. Graham was awarded a Distinguished Flying Cross for his conduct as a Forward Air Controller during this mission. I haven't had the chance to show Graham the completed model yet due to Covid19, but I was able

  22. Thought I'd dive in head first with what is probably my first LSP post! I've recently finished my Trumpeter 1/32 Harrier GR7 of IV(AC) Sqn RAF Laarbruch, Germany in 1994 (I served on this Sqn and worked on this aircraft) The kit is woefully inaccurate but with the help of serious amounts of resin extras (from a fellow modeller on BM) I hope I've been able to create a quite reasonable model of the real thing. Paints are all Tamiya XF-81 Dark green 2 RAF for the top sides and XF-71 Cockpit Green for the undersides. Resin or Brass: Nose section, BOL rails, BL755 Cluster Bombs, CBU8

  28. Hey guys, I know my Chico build is yesterday's news around here. However, I unfortunately used Future on Gunze acrylic paint back then and it resulted in fine noticeable cracks. Given the effort I put into Chico I wanted to go back and correct this. At there same time there were some bloopers on my original build, for example the windows on the Rockeyes I mastered were too large. The cracks were really deep so I had to sand down to plastic on the affected areas. For some reason the water from the wet sanding sort of silvered all decals that the sanding water came into contact with

  29. It is easy to get sidetracked when researching the A6M2. It will inevitably lead the enthusiastic reader to Canada, which it did in my case. I didn't know that Mitsubishi's competitor Nakajima built Zero's, or that there were subtle (and obvious) ways of knowing the difference. One of those differences, the white surround to the Hinomaru, was one of the major features I wanted to incorporate in this build, since it highlights the dark shade of the grey with which the Zero was painted. Then I discovered the concept of the Houkoku presentation number, and that became number two on the wish list!

    The Tommy in 1/32 scale

    Here is my latest scratchbuild, a Thomas Morse S4C, known as the Tommy. I think this is a significant plane as most WW1 aviators had time in one. This 1/32 scale rendering has a Vector resin engine and a turned aluminum cowling. Turnbuckles by Gaspatch and Eduard. Insignias painted on. Thanks for looking in. Comments welcome.

  32. Cheers everyone! Kevin was kind enough to separate the Phantom posts from the Tomcat thread. As I am planning to finish this one, it makes more sense to open a separate thread for it. I wasn't in the mood to work on the Tomcat landing gear, so I decided to resurrect another project from the Shelf of Doom - a QF-4S. Painting is fun! Cutting Edge conversion kit, cockpit converted to QF-4S standard. As there are no decals, all markings are painted...

Hi folks Eric from Aircorps Aviation who restored the real Lopes Hope 3rd has been in touch asking for some pictures for the current owner – I thought as I had them, I might share them as I haven’t done an RFI post It’s not actually finished yet as I am waiting for the display case to be built so it can go in there dust free and safe, but there are only a few things to do like aerials, fix the canopy parts properly & detail them, and the drop tanks & mounts The final pic is with a US aircraft compass to give a sense of scale

  35. This model was built to depict the F-100D flown by Captain Ronald Swanson during a ground support mission in 1968 whilst under the direction of Forward Air Controller, Flying Officer Macaulay Cottrell RAAF. It was whilst I was building Mac's O-1 Bird Dog that I had the idea to try and track down either of the F-100 pilots mentioned in the combat report written by the BLADE flight, and was successful in contacting Ronald. He agreed to be my subject pilot and this is the result. Additions: Aires Cockpit. Aires Wheel Bays. Aires Exhaust. Zactomodels Nose

  36. Here are some photos of the 1/32nd scale Trumpeter kit I finished two years ago. The surface details were completely redone, lots of rivet detail was eliminated, all groove lines rescribed and corrected, underwing pylons detailed & modified. The kit was a PITA to assemble, but I'd do it again - the Revell kit is no alternative. At least, this one looks more or less correct... Decals from Fightertown, Eduard PE parts, seat from Legend, nozzles from Aires, ECS vents & control stick from Aerobonus, wheels / seamless intakes from Rhino models IIRC, AIM-9X from Zactomodels, GBU-38 from Vide

  40. Here's a quick look at the first and probably only model I have finished in 2020, Academy's excellent 1/35th scale AH-1Z Viper. Probably the best kit I have ever built - excellent surface detail (raised rivets!!), perfect fit. The cockpit is a bit of a letdown detail wise, but nothing that can't be fixed with a bit of effort. Clear parts are a bit of a disappointment as well. The model was published in issue 6/2020 of German magazine ModellFan, so I can just post a minimum of photos at the moment. I am working on a little diorama which I'll show you once it's finished.

  46. Hello I am new here and will make my debut with a Mirage IIIE built from the Italeri kit in 1:32. The model took me more than 600 hours to build after some modifications, corrections and refinements were done. The italeri kit generally is a lot better, than the old Revell one, however the quality leaves something to be desired and it is not up to the standard of these days.

I need to add the shredded fabric to the rudder and the rudder trim tab pushrod and that's about it...So while neither model seen here is technically finished or complete, you'll get the idea of where Iv'e been going with this from these images. In this picture I'm testing my ability to get a damged (destroyed) nose cone glazing; The (nearly) final result. Both models still need detail work but these pictures give the feeling I was

He's been dead since 2000, so there is no asking him for info on this stuff, my mom is around but won't knot much about the Navy details so I am putting this together from memory and whats in the photos.
