    Hi there,
    I'd like to show my recently finished Tamiya Spitfire Mk. IXe in the colors of 101 Squadron, Israel Defense Forces, 1949.
    I used some Quickboost and Barracuda aftermarket sets and the 101 Squadron badge is from a Techmod sheet. I had some serious trouble with the techmod-decals (Star of David, tactical no.) had to remove them and had to paint the markings using masks made from Tamiya-tape. I used Gunze Mr. Color paints.
    After building lots of Luftwaffe-subjects, it was a good change to build an Israeli plane and the Tamiya Spitfire builds great!
    Comments and critique welcome:

    Recently finished up on this model.  It's the Hasegawa Bf 109G-14 kit converted using the Werner's Wings set.
    I have long wanted to do this subject in my favorite scale, but previously the only conversion was the older
    set from ARBA.  I was pleased when this conversion set came out, and jumped on one immediately upon release.

    Here is the Pacific Coast Models 1/32 scale Spitifre XIVc.  I did replace the scrawny kit landing gear struts with SAC white metal struts.  On viewing the photos of the completed model, I have raked the landing struts a few more degrees forward.  The elevators were cut out and positioned with downward deflection as seen in almost all photos of Spitfires at rest.  This is the third PCM Spitfire kit I've built and I appreciate the low parts count and resin and color photoetch provided.  Finished as VL-P of the No 322 (Dutch) Squadron in March 1944, using the excellent kit decals that are printed by Cartograph.  Weathering was limited to panel line wash, lots of oily residue on the belly, exhaust stains, minor wear of the wing root, and grunge aroudn the wheels and landing gear.  Note that I did NOT paint the crowbar red.

    Kitty Hawk's wonderful kit of the Bronco.
    I did a little bit of extra work in the cockpit, rest is OOB.
    Fit was a bit off in places, but no major problems.
    This is an aeroplane that I have always had a fascination with, not sure why, but it has a great look to it and I am really glad that there is now a big scale kit of it
    This model will be featuring as a review in a magazine soon.

    SinuheH reacted to Kyrre in My Big Fast Greek Dog - KH F-86D   
    Sooo ... I have a thing for Greek stuff. With Kitty Hawk's release of a Sabre Dog I was hooked and had to start it almost as soon as I got the kit delivered. 
    Now, a few things about my approach to modelling, having done this for 35 odd years:
    - Cockpits. Don't like'em, don't like replacing them with resin or etch, but will do what it takes to do them "nice enough". Will cheat, will omit parts, as long as it looks busy enough. 
    - Fuselage. I like my kits to look representative - and will not open up stuff unless it was a typical feature of that plane. So, in this case, dropped slats are a necessity (as on a Bf109), opened air brakes? Not so much. You don't see many pictures of these aircraft flashing their innards, unless they just landed.
    - Exposed engine? Yeah right. See last paragraph.  - Research, yes, accuracy, yes, but if it takes the fun out of the build - screw it. If the kit looks right - it is right. 

    So, without further ado:    The cockpit is quite okay straight from the box. I have no idea about accuracy. There should probably be some more seatbelt-stuff in there, but they will be painted greyish and then with a bit of added shadow, that's it.    The cockpit decal is nice, but I thought I'd get into trouble if I tried applying it over the relief molded panel, so I cut them out and applied a coupious amount of Micro Sol, followed by some Future for the "glass". I gave the radar screen some typical cathode ray colour, I have no idea if this would be correct.     With a bit of sanding and dry fitting the air brakes are a tight fit. Nice one, Kitty Hawk.     As mentioned earlier, I have no interest in displaying the engine, so I attached the front and rear halves respectively, using some strip plastic to ensure that I got a fairly smooth joint when viewed from the outside. Worked quite well - shouldn't be much of a step along the fuselage. .    That's how far I've come. I am enjoying this build immensely and have not encountered many issues yet - though a lot of time has been spent dry fitting before committing.  Thanks for watching - oh, and do give feedback on any issues you might see with the build! I appreciate constructive criticism.

    Hi Mates,
    As promised, here is my last (but not least !) model. There is only one of this experimental camo (see photo) and also the same scheme with 3 gray tones called "Flipper".
    This is the Trumpeter kit + Verlinden resin kit for electronic bays + PE for external, cockpit and armament. A part of the canopy (front) is from Squadron. Lot of scratchbuilt and some modifications too.
    TwoBobs Decals. Not an easy kit.... started 3 years ago with lot of breaks ! Not for unexperimentals modelers.
    Hope you enjoy it.

    Had no real trouble with this one exept fo landing gear which is very weak and hard to put in right place unlike Hasegawa. Everything else went on realy trouble free

    A little more on this model.  The Israeli A-4 modifications I added were a resin coversion set from "Wolfpack".  Some very minor surgery to the kit is necessary to add these very detailed parts. The parts fit was perfect and required very little putty to fill the join lines.

    The actual plane breaks at the mid-body allowing the tail to be removed to expose the engine for maintenance.  I detailed the engine and painted it suitably to show it off.  The insulation on the exhaust pipe came from a cigarette package.

    Hi Guys,
    I've posted my other IDF/AF Skyhawk models here and I have to say, I can't seem to get enough of this beautiful plane, so here's another.  This time I used the Trumpeter 1/32 A-4M which is far and away more detailed than the Hasegawa kits I've built before.  No kits are perfect and this one is no exception.  I have to say though, it was a pleasure to see it finished and I'm showing the result here.  It took about 2 months of on and off modeling time to completion.  It's painted in the colors of Israeli Air Force #115 squadron, "The Dragons" .  The squadron currently flies F-16A "Netz" aircraft as an aggressor squadron for the rest of the IDF/AF.  
    The model is painted in the colors of the Dragon squadron as it would have appeared during the first Lebanon war in 1982.  I've armed the plane with a HOBOS 2000lb glide bomb and an AIM-9D sidewinder missile.  The bomb was detailed a bit to bring it up to the rest of model detail level.  The cockpit is "Aires" resin for the A-4M.










    Hope you all liked the the model !

    Hi time to put this one on the display shelf so here is my RFI pictures
    First – Bit used :-
    True Details Resin cockpit
    Apart from the minor problems with the seat this was very good and didn't need any adjustment to fit. Just lots of dry fitting to check as you go.
    Flightpath PE
    I found this industrial thick and a real pain to cut! Didn't use all of it just some bits, jet pipe, main wheel wells and the flaps being the major bits. I couldn't get the flaps to fit at all which was very annoying, as it took me ages to make them and I did like their looks! The instructions are very vague and IMHO not very clear at all but the main wheel wells look pretty good!
    Wouldn't bother with the Flightpath cockpit bits, as the True Details Cockpit is so much easier to deal with and will give you better detail for far less pain.
    Masters Pitot Tube
    This looks very nice and is a step up from the kit part. The only thing was mine had a very slight bend in it! But I managed to get it pretty straight, not perfect but it will do for me! As know one has noticed unless I point to it.
    Main coloures are all Humbrols new UK paints with some other parts painted in my first adventure into Alclad. All finished off with my depleting supply of MM Semi and Matt varnish.     
    The kit is okay, had some fit issues (some coursed by me) but some of it could have been designed better by Revel which would have made the construction a lot easier and give a better finish – The build can been seen HERE.
    Right from the off, when I bought this kit I wanted to do something different to RAF Green and Gray as I have quite a few kits to come in these colours – so I needed some verity! Doing the research I had come across some references to the Rhodesian Hunters and their uses. So as these, in the beginning, carried no national markings I thought it would be a challenge to try and make a convincing looking surface without any roundels which IMO is when the model starts to get a real look and gives the surface some interest. I also found obscure references to both Sidewinders and a ‘home made reconnaissance pod' made from a wing fuel tank. I tried to find some more info on these but couldn't find any. So went with making it up from some educated guesses.
    So anyway enough of   lets get to the pictures!!!!!
    I wasn't sure if I could pull off the camera pod so from the outset I made the pylons so that I could swap around the ordnance – So first with the SNEB Pods





    Then swapped out for the small wing tank and camera pod.


    Now with the cover of the cameras

    Did a lot of work in the wheel wells - Flighpath and Scratched

    A shot off all the bottom bits

    Okay - got some more to poat so back in a mo
    Taff -
