  1. This is the Hasegawa kit in 1/72. It's not a bad model, although I did have some issues fitting the engine nacelles that required a bit of filling and sanding, otherwise things went together well. Chinese markings come from the spares box with the fin flash being masked and painted. Surprisingly, the colour picture which my build is based on shows the aircraft in a reasonable condition, thus I chose not to highlight all the panel lines, just those around the engines as they appeared a bit grimey. I am lacking some white numbers on the tail, I couldn't find small enough decals in the spares.
  2. Our club sponsors a 'Build the Same Kit' contest every year, which includes aircraft and armor options so thought to try something different I'd take on a small project : the Trumpeter Bradley M2A2 but dressed in WWII Camo scheme. The kit was very cheap, so why not? The obligatory box art shot: Not a lot of parts to the kit, but a fair amount of interior detail considering the scale and most of it will be covered up: I have interior shots SOMEWHERE but no clue where they went. There are a LOT of seats inside one of these things, but unless you put the read door down and open
  3. A little Luftwaffe '46 for today, the very nice Revell 1/72 Focke Wulf Flitzer. Believe it or not this aircraft actually made it to the wooden mock up stage, but never progressed further. I've equipped mine with a pair of 21cm mortar tubes from a 262 and two X-4 wire guided air to air missiles as a bomber destroyer. The little tractor is from Academy and the base was made from scrap plastic and the base of an old trophy.
  4. So having all these builds (B-25, F-4E, PR XI Spitfire) I thought I'd throw in something different. What is it? Zoids are a Japanese Sci-fi series from the '80s and' 90s. Basically they're armed cyborg dinosaurs that have lots of guns, rockets and, a shopping basket... Gotta have a shopping basket for all your extra ammo. Similar to most Bandai kits, it's a press fit and glue isn't a must but definitely handy in certain places. The biggest hurdle is the paint scheme since pretty much every color is a custom mix of Gunze paints. So I stated with the main colors which are
  5. This is a nice little kit. The Belgium markings offer a nice change of pace to RAF markings and the decals settle down nicely under some Mr Mark decal fluid. I had read of some issues fitting the fuselage to the wing, but some clamping solved any problem there and the fit is actually quite good. I've been buying quite a few of these new Airfix kits and I'm quite pleased with them.
  6. I can't seem to make any headway with my two 1/32 Sopwith Camels - the rigging just has me in knots (Ha ha, that was a LITTLE funny, right? ). But I've found some enjoyment in some of the 1/72nd kits and the Eduard kits are just a joy to build. Fit and detail are amazing for kits in this scale, instructions are very clear - and they don't take up a lot of space. Ok, so why twins? I purchased a Profi-Pack kit of the Spitfire Mk IXc, and knowing I have many different decals to play with, purchased an Mk IXc OVERTREES set to go with it. My first Overtrees - which is simply a sprue-o
  7. Our club does an annual 'Group Build' called Build the Same Kit. This year its the Hellcat and mine is the Eduard 1/72 kit. I chose Lt. Stambook, VF-27 from the USS Princeton as my subject (kit decal options) since it had that nice mouth on it (can't really say its a sharks mouth). Already in progress using mostly Vallejo and Model Master paints. This is the Profipack kit, so it has the PE parts for the cockpit (color photoetch). For the first time I was able to get all of the various switches in place and the PE seatbelts. I've seen a few different light blues on these aircra
  8. Hi All, In between (still) continual pattern making, I have decided to have a go at making a smaller model and attempt to try and have it completed for the IPMS Newark and Lincoln Expo competition in October (something I last did 16 years ago!). I am not confident that I will achieve my target as I have got a lot of other things coming up to stop me, but I will give it a try. I have selected the Heller 1/72 AMD Mirage IV A kit as my first attempt at 'rehabilitation' back into normal modelling again (whatever 'normal' is measured as!). The first thing to tackle is the cock
  9. I started modelling in the late 60's, with Airfix, Frog and Heller "Musée" kits, all in 1/72. Then came Matchbox, with their fast-paced release of 1/72 kits, molded in garish colors, and still remembered today for their famous "trenches" recessed panel lines. Their range was not only wide, it was full of original subjects, and it was available through a wide array of stores. The tobacconist near where my parents lived soon received regular visits from me, to buy the last Matchbox kit. With my modelling buddies of the Geneva and Savoie area, we have a yearly "challenge" for fun, to be
  10. Before Lewis Lynch served as a Navy Medic in San Francisco, caring for wounded arriving from the Pacific Theater, he worked at the Martin Aircraft Plant in Omaha, Nebraska... He grew up in the Sand Hills of Nebraska and to survive the deprivations of the Great Depression, he and several members of his family migrated to Omaha to scratch out a living in the Martin factory... It was at the Martin facility in Omaha that the B26C Marauder was assembled and later the B29 Superfortress... Lewis was involved in B26C builds... In March 2015, Lewis Lynch will turn 93, and as celebration of his birthday
  11. Not a bad little kit, although the decals were pretty thick and detail is sparse. I masked and painted the fuselage red and white along with the anti glare panel and the wing leading edge. I really should have painted on the roundels too. This aircraft was armed with two 40mm HO-301 cannon designed to knock down B-29's, but in reality, the weapon was just as lethal to the pilot as the B-29 due to the low muzzle velocity. Pilots had to get dangerously close to open fire with any accuracy.
