  1. Suitably inspired (nagged!) by my 9 year old son Cameron to dig out our respective B-17 projects, I thought I ought to put a stick in the ground and post a thread here. Cam is a huge B-17 fan (especially the 'Memphis Belle) as so last year we got him the old Revell 1:48th 'F' kit. He was very excited - and then a little put off by the complexity of it all so I had 'another bright ideaTM' and suggested that if he had a go at his, I'd dig my 1:32 monster from the loft and we could build both in parallel. This weekend just gone Cam has called 'in' on the deal - so, well, here we are!
  2. I had a thoroughly good time building the HK Models Mk. IV Mosquito, with the RFI here: It's a great kit, with a one piece forward fuselage, rear fuselage, and wing, and a great fit. The HK Mossies have been the subject of several criticisms, but to me the most obvious one is the orientation of the nose windows. The top edge of each should be aligned with the top edge of the nose blister: Or a different perspective: Compared to the real aircraft: I know that there have been other criticisms of the HK Mossie kits,
  3. Finally this build has crossed the finish line - Kit: HK Models Mosquito B Mk IV. My goal was to depict one of the planes used by the RAF Film Production Unit (FPU). These Mosquito's were used to document some of the daring low level operations, mostly done by 2nd TAF. These cameraplanes participated in some of the famous operations against german targets, Gestapo Headquartes, Amiens Prison Break etc... In the beginning these planes were modified, to carry a cine camera mounted in the nose. Later 35 mm handheld camera's were being used and by the summer of 1944 they were fitted with an add
  4. Greetings all; Here is my contribution to the MEGB, the HK Models B-25J as "Vestal Virgin" from the film Catch-22. I'm not going crazy with AM stuff, just the "necessities" for this big gal, mainly the G-Factor bronze landing gear legs, and I have an extra set of Master B-17 .50-cal barrels to use in place of the kit plastic. Also a set of Eduard masks for all that glass. The KitsWorld decals will be ordered later today. Photos: The obligatory box shot: The AM goodies: I don't yet have the decals on hand, but here are so
  5. First go at a group build here on LSP. My entry is the rather large HK B-25H Mitchell. I started this late 2018 but it's only just started so suitable for this GB. Looking forward to this - got a few after market items; Eduard Brassin wheels Eduard fabric seatbelts Eduard interior etch I'll post pics as soon as figure out how to Martin
  6. Greetings all, After lurking for a year+ on this site I'm going to take the plunge. This kit marks my return to modeling after more than three decades away. When I first saw this massive kit, and then later, what the excellent modelers here were doing with it, I could no longer resist joining in! And frankly, I can use all the help I can get! It will be my first attempt at anything not right out of the box, spraying anything that isn't in a rattle-can, so amateur fits. All tips and suggestions are welcome, constructive criticisms too. Some background... I've been working on this kit pe
  7. G'day guys, Since this topic seems to come up about every 3 months, I thought I'd show you what can be done if you want it badly enough These parts are just a rough trial, but my initial impressions are that it improves the look of the kit immensely. It also *should* be compatible with most of the existing kit parts once I've got it properly cleaned up, apart from a new instrument panel/#3 bulkhead of course and the cockpit glazings.... Anyway, I thought I'd share it here in case you miss my build. Cheers, Craig
  8. G'day Guys, Well I'm doing something I've tried for a long time not to do; have two build logs going at once. The difference, aside from them being 2 different versions of the B-17 (I have 3 all up), is that for a while, this build will exist mainly as a virtual one. With so much discussion about the shape of the nose and what HK did or didn't get right, I've decided to embark on a quest to see if I can come up with a decent rendition that has the right "look." My aim here is NOT to produce an aftermarket correction set to go on sale to the masses, more so to investiga
  9. So Here is my entry to the great 20th anniversary group build! I picked up the HK Models kit last June at a swap and sell for a mere $150 Aussie dollars, the seller even included the Zotzs Heavenly bodies decal set!! Then came the aftermarket! Oh well I saved on the kit so no worries! All motivated I began construction and completed a wheel bay (figured that if the build got shelved then it could go back in the box and not get damaged). Well shift work returned and I started on my HpH macchi M5 so the wheel bay is as far as I got, well under 25%. With the Wingnut lanc
  10. My Mosquito project, stalled a bit because of the B-25J "Old Ironsides III" project A lot of research went into this project, getting the details right... Aftermarket...

    HK FB page has cad and says test shot example hopefully by January and release February March!https://www.facebook.com/hkmmodels/photos/pcb.1928004717449144/1928004267449189/?type=3&theater
  14. Hi folks, I was looking at the instructions on the B-25 kit and it says that everything inside is interior green. Is that correct or is it like the B-17 where different sections are different colours? Also, is it Zinc Chromate Green or something darker? Thanks in advance. Carl
  15. Hi all, This is my HK Models Meteor F.4, converted into a T.7 using the Fisher Models resin set, incorporating the narrow chord intakes that are specific to the majority of T.7 aircraft. I've also added a smattering of Eduard stuff around this build, for landing flaps, seatbelts, wheels and mudguards etc. It's a little worrying when you hack off huge sections of your expensive model kit with a razor saw, but this one built up just beautifully. I've used MRP (Mr Paint) for all colours, such as Sulphur Yellow, Basalt, White Aluminium, Lemon Grey and Syrian AFV Yellow-Brown etc. Also some nic
  16. So this will be my first "online" build. And i will be sharing my build progress here on LSP... Project: B-25J-2 "Old Ironsides III" based at Alesani Airbase, Corsica 1944-45. 12th Air Force, 340th Bomb Group, 488th Bomb Squadron. Photo of "her" around september 1944, supplied to me, by Dominique Taddei (Author of USS Corsica) Kit: Hong Kong Models 1/32 B-25J Aftermarket: Profimodeller, Eduard, Brassin Wheels, HGW Seatbelts, Scale Aircraft Conversion Metal Landing Gear, Montex Mask etc... I have to
  17. I have been hesitant to post my progress on this one as I haven't had the best record on finishing my large scale projects, but here it goes. This is the HK Models Do 335 B-2 kit. I have been working on it on and off since last fall. I have the Eduard Brassin wheels and muzzle brakes as well as the HGW seat belts to add to the kit. The rest of the details that I will add will be scratchbuilt. I plan to do it in the following whatif markings that I found at http://www.inpayne.com/whatif/whatif4.html. I am hoping to be able to make my own masks for the major mar
  18. Here is my rendition of Hong Kong Models Gloster to which I've also added a Profimodeller RR Derwent in the left wing, and a cockpit detail set from Eduard. The model has taken me about 3 months to finish and I'm pleased with the result. I hope HKM or another quality company will produce some more of these early jets as they are a fascinating subject and there are lots of gaps in available kits. More on this build can be found under the "Works in Progress" forum. http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=62862 Cheer
  19. Hi folks, I've just finished the HK Models Mosquito test shot and submitted my build article/photos to Brett for next month's Military Illustrated Modeller. Such a nice it to build. Non-fussy, and very tactile. An engineering triumph too Here she is, in her cookie incarnation.
  20. As suggested by Ron and Kev, I've started a new thread on the build of my HK Mossie kit so that it'll be easier for everyone to follow. This is going to be built alongside the Tamiya kit. Here it is with its bench mate.
  21. I've been working on this project on and off for the last year or so, and finally applied the finishing touches this weekend. The HK Models kit needs no introduction and was for the second time, a joy to build. Having seen a few of these kits made up as war-beaten WWII aircraft, I wanted to do something a little different, and thus decided to build this version as a modern day warbird. Most preserved Forts in natural metal gleam like a mirror - something that terrified me, so I went instead for the Experimental Aircraft Association's 'Aluminum Overcast' which is operated from Oshkosh, Wisc
  22. Hi Guys, In the meanwhile I've been working on the new HK Models Mosquito. I haven't shared it here before, because I wanted all the turmoil and negativity that clouded this release to pass over. I'm building this kit out of the box with the only additions being: • ProfiModeller stencil decals • Masks for the markings • HGW seat harnesses • Profi Modeller pitot tube • Metal mesh for the radiator guards It's a lovely kit to build. For my next build I might 3D print new spinners with a slightly more accurate shape. Not because I think it needs it, but because it's fun.
  23. After two months of not building im going to restart the building. A fresh start with a fresh kit. Last week i recievd this one and evry day im looking in the box,so now i have to start this. I dondt know much about WW II planes but you are all out here to help. I will use Brian hese build on lady Lil for a guideline. This is the kit. Whats in the box. I hope i can make a start this weekend. And yes this one will be foiled. Mark
  24. Hi guys and gals, You've no doubt been following Kev's excellent build of the Do 335B-2 which is soon to be released. Some of you mentioned that you were wanting to see the other versions to, such as the two seat, and the fighter without the wing cannon. Well, the 335A-0 has already landed with me here, so it looks like we should see other versions sooner, rather than later. Two new sprues are included in this kit. A clear one which has no blisters or the armoured panels, and of course a sprue with a new forward leg/wheel/mudguard, wing inserts without blisters, bomb and new instrumen
  25. Hi all, Over the last 10 days, me and my friend François have been busy doing a quick build of the Do-335 Pfeil by HK Models. It is a late test shot we built for TMN. Here is a photo of it, a link and a little cartoon I made. I hope you like it! Nic http://www.themodellingnews.com/2014/09/full-build-of-hk-models-do335-pfeil-in.html#more
