  1. For my own amusement as much as anything else I've been comparing the three Tiger Moth kits which are now available. I thought I'd make a running thread of my musings on various aspects of the three but please feel free if inclined to add observations, comments, questions or ribald humour! Part 1 - THE KITS: The oldest of the three is the Matchbox one, first produced as long ago as 1978 in multi-coloured plastic (why?) then latterly re-boxed by Revell in 1997 in a light grey plastic: Matchbox/Revell is quite a mouthful and too much typing for me s
  2. We take a look at ICM's excellent 1:32 Gloster Gladiator Mk.I... From what I've seen/heard this is proving to be quite a popular kit! Have fun, Iain
  3. Hi everyone, I am making my ICM Mk I Gloster Gladiator as a J8. The kits cockpit was already started as it was my display model for advertising the AIMS cockpit detail set so trying to paint it up nice as an afterthought means it is by far my best work. There are some more bits to add to the right side but these cannot be added to until the halves are together. Also on the J8 the IFF control on the upper left side was changed to underneath the Flygradiostation type III device but mine was glued solid as had not intended making the kit! Anyway apart from my mistakes I hope you like. thanks.
  4. I've been going back and forth wether to participate in this GB or not. There are some trainers in my stash (e.g. the Bü 131) but my main topic is recon planes and therfor most trainers will be build as liaison planes. Speaking of recon birds: my FR IXc Spit is still sitting on the shelf waiting for completion... Anyway I chose a rather simple subject: A Polikarpov Type 10 in the (post war) colours of the Spanish Airforce. Some of the former republican Ratas were used as training aircraft at Moron airbase until mid fiftys! I bought the ICM decals some time
  5. We take a look at the Sea Gladiator variant of the excellent ICM Gladiator kits. Blue skies! Iain
  6. Hi all, Have posted a quick in-box review of the new ICM Stearman PT-17/N2S-3 Kaydet kit. Blue (and Yellow!) skies... Iain
  7. Hi, i started new ICM kit of this lovely biplane. I decided to convert it to early version - with other type of spinner similar to I-16. My choice of painting is red 29: but I can't find any photo of it : / Maybe you can help me? If i won't find it, alternative scheme is this one, with existing photographs: Engine is not a good side of kit, it looks like scaled 1:72 element, but it won't be visible much under engine cover. Wheel bays are unfortunately empty, maybe i scratch something there. Despite these disadvantages, kit is coming together very nicely and f
  8. Well I hope you are all well.

  11. Hi Folks, me again, just wanted to make another UK Gloster Gladiator decal sheet - I hope you do not mind? Sending this off to the printers in next few days. Will do my Finnish and Swedish sheet in next month or so. Thanks for looking.
  12. The ICM Gloster Gladiator "landed" on my work bench this morning, so work starts this afternoon! A few shots for starters of sprues, sample instructions and thoughts: Sprues: The detail on all the mouldings is very crisp and well defined. There's no attempt to portray a fabric effect, but this is often overdone when it's been tried previously. Drilling points for rigging are not given other than small raised squares by the struts. I'm pleased that all the control surfaces are separated so that you can "strike your o
  13. Hi everyone here is another Gloster Gladiator sheet coming in the near future, thanks for looking
  14. I was delighted to read Iain's recent review of ICM's newly released Bucker Jungmann. I love trainer aircraft but since they are not regarded as very "sexy" and have limited appeal we get very few of them, so well done ICM, more power to your elbow!! Box art: but you'll have to check out Iain's review for sprue shots etc.. Just down the road from me is Henstridge airfield where I did my Tiger Moth training. Annabelle Burroughes, one of the instructors, has a Jungmann which suffered an ignominious event in 2013: A cross wind caught her as she came in to land, and oop
  15. This is a short build thread for a ICM Bucker Bu131 in 1/32 scale. I haven't seen one finished yet but one or two threads were started. I have decided to do a Dutch training version. The plane I will model was captured by the Germans when The Netherlands were overrun. The overall color was a turquoise blue/gray shade. The aluminum parts appear to be a natural aluminum finish based on the photo. I have enhanced some details and will try to make the cowling removable to view the engine.
  16. Hi everyone - I have posted these before but with the ICM release perhaps it is good to have a fresh link to easily find. The album is on my AIMS FB page - enjoy https://www.facebook.com/pg/AIMS-1246247558760457/photos/?tab=album&album_id=2818460878205776&__xts__[0]=68.ARDfb4pheswdcJxud_PaAwqHlQwQisg8aM9MGhaNg9B1Ab0mQBTsbbmN_xk6xOWlS9Ym5sf35AgwaJt3JkfKK85ClUEUTuhzz9LN63CsbLidZdXkw_HxgNg0782EMwdGuttjAPqwJ2lzhUSdODMjY_mIePg8Tg_uf0cWvzfEyteBz0rzrki3O0p-aG9dH9VBegWi5DDfYLuu4fepvA1ekbqzGw_Ct_ZWUdvQH98OLJA3jC65hucttbxmOKkyy9XsZbA88J-kQCrTnkIc7drmXaQFXzIvDaD86HwBTqVOwKsAD0aqF8Vkkd38JJu6G
  17. G'day everyone. Here's my rendition of ICM's I-153. Very nice build. Good detail, nice fit, but their soft, flexible plastic made for interesting alignment of the long thin wings. It's built almost out of the box, eduard etched seatbelts (I wasnt a fan, and will stick to HGWs belts in the future), and Quickboost exhausts. Painted with MRP paints and rigged with EZline. Denzil
  18. Hi guys, This is my recent build. I was planning it as one week relaxing build and at the end it turned into 1 month Kit is really nice, however I noticed some problems with fit of the parts and many details are just out of scale or missing. It's compareble from buildabilty point of view to the Revell P-51D IMHO. I have added Eduard PE set and HGW seatbelts and some wires. Painted with Mr.Paint and Mr.Color. AMMO Washes, pigments and filters used as well. Not my best build overall, but I intent to use it as motivation recovery between the resin builds Thanks for lo
  19. New Chaika from ICM, nice kit, fast to build. I made conversion to early type - with spinner similar to I-16 or I-15 Bis. I think that it is prettier than late - but it is only my opinion. It looks like a cartoon plane, from Mickey Mouse comic book . List of additions and modifications: - new spinner - new exhaust tube on fuselage, smaller exhausts on engine cover made from solder - some cables in cockpit and engine - rigging from fishing line - hollowed air inlet - tubes from syringe needle pushed into gun outlets on engine covers - masks used for red 8 number WIP: https://forum.la
  20. We review a rather nice new release from ICM - the Bücker Bü 131D Huge number of schemes for this one, civil as well as military - and really nicely done too! Have fun, Iain
