  3. G'day everyone, @mozart asked if I'd post some pics of this build, so here are the pics I have! I'm on a bit of a trainer kick at the moment so when I saw this for a good price on internet auction site, I decided to add it to the collection. Typical short run kit, plastic is very carvable, with fine recessed panel detail oh, a small sheet of photo etched, injection molded clear canopies with pre-cut masks and a nice selection of paint schemes. The kit makes you work with lots of carving and cleaning up of parts, gaps to fill and lots of interesting fit issues to s
  4. New release from Elan13 Miniatures RAF Pilot With Dog WW2 1/32 resin figure £15.00 www.elan13.co.uk
  5. I feel I’m on a roll at the moment so the above kit has come down from the high shelf stash. I’ve no shelf of doom builds or almost finished builds to get done. It was a coin flip between the Harrier, or an A-10. Both come with fairly poor rep’s, but I’m ready to give them a fair crack of the whip to create a couple of good lookers. To the Harrier first, I’m utilising some Wolfpack-D Extras. Cockpit, external parts, and using the model alliance decal sheets for ZD433 of No1 Squadron. I’ll be adding some AM weaponry too, later down the line. I know about the poor shapes of th
  6. Hi everyone it is figure day! Picked up my painted Hans-Joachim Marseille (32F002 £12.00) last night and this morning received preliminary photos of my painted Rev Keymer (32F003 £12.00) and also this morning received the renders of my RAF / FAA pilot - 1950 flight suit sculpted by Greg Girault which I share now for the fist time. This figure will be in 1/72/148/132 and 75mm. I will post when it is ready. Email me at aimsmodels1@gmail.com if interested, thanks, John
  7. Hello again, all. After a couple of non LSP kits, I decided I'd get back to the Master Scale. My lovely wife bought me the MkVIII Spit for Father's Day, so I thought I'd get right to it. I just have to say, this is, as we all expect from Tamiya LSPs, a beautiful kit. It could be built straight out of the box and look fantastic. So, naturally, I bought a bunch of after market . Actually, as I'll discuss later, I think I may have actually bought too much aftermarket (is such a thing even possible?) I went with HGW seat belts, Barracuda decals and cockpit upgrades, the Eduard ex
  8. This year I aim to be building mainly RAF subjects and/or Great War subjects*, and here's one that's both, as my subject was from post-April 1918. As it happens, I had a clear workbench on the 30th December last year, and nothing on the Shelf of Doom, which is a first for me in a long time. So what to start my centenary-inspired RAF-fest with? I decided on the RE.8, so without further ado, I seriously devalued the kit in my stash by cutting the fuselage and wing parts from the sprues. There is not much progress so far. I've identified the wooden parts, and painted them, now I'm
  9. 1/18 scale Hafner Rotabuggy flying Jeep Willys Royal Air Force 1943 Solido diecast conversion & scratchbuilt The Hafner Rotabuggy (formally known as the Blitz Buggy or Malcolm Rotaplane) was an experimental aircraft that was essentially a jeep (actually a Willys MB) combined with an autogyro. It was designed by Austrian born British designer Raul Hafner of the AFEE - Airborne Forces Experimental Establishment after their development of the Hafner Rotachute enjoyed some success. The prototype was built by the M.L. Aviation Company at White Waltham in 1942.
  10. Hi everyone, Here's my quickest built I ever did a few years back, took me 5 weeks, almost OOB except for the True detail pit. A very affordable hasslefree kit , hope you like. Dan. More to come... Dan.
  11. Hi there I finished this some 4 weeks ago and have not had the opportunity to photograph it. Now I can ruin a decent model in one click and as you can tell it's not my thing!. I bought this at Telford SMW 2017 and it was one of those I had to have it as I normally buy 2nd hand kits. It goes together quite well and I'm pleased although it's tiny in scale and I had doubts at the beginning but I have vowed to leave 1/48 to the experts, I simply find it too small to make it an enjoyable build. Anyway some crappy photos to humour you with. Ignore the base as it's 1/32 and the only one I've got. IM
  12. Here it is, my first WIP thread on this site. I've been back in the hobby for a little over a year after a couple of decades layoff, and have been working in 1/48 exclusively and posting on FSM mostly. This will be my first 1/32 build, and I will be taking it slow since it's such a huge kit. I will be eventually painting and marking her up as one of the Amiens raiders from 464 Squadron. First picture is just the kit in box in my newly reorganized workspace. Also pictured is my brand new homemade spray booth. I think I'm going to start tonight and will post some pics once I
  13. Happy new year all. I've just acquired the Tamiya 1/32 Phantom F4j and am thinking of converting this to the UK version. I know that shortly after the Falklands war the UK bought 15 retired “off the shelf†F4j' s from the USAF. Any Phantom experts out there with advise on how much work would be involved to fo the conversation. Also any help sourcing RAF markings would be appreciated.
  14. Folks - did a search on the site here but didn't find the answer. A web search also turned up an amazing number of mixes and comments about what are the 'right' and 'wrong' colours... SOOO - my friends, what are the 'proper' colors for WWII Roundels for a Spitfire (I am assuming the colours were standardized, but just in case...) Mk IXc? I'm building 2 1/72 Spits and have decals, but am trying to practice using masks hence my question. I see lots of comments about decals having the wrong colours so rather than just trying to mix a match for the decals I thought I'd ping this knowle
  15. So, this is my 3rd attempt at scratchbuilding a 1/32, aviation related vehicle. It has been in making for quite some time, but now it seems to come together rather well... I initially bought the new Airfix 1/48 Bedford MWD kit, to use as a guide for this build. 1.5 x 1/48 = 1/32 The chassis is scratchbuild using different parts from the spares box (engine, gearbox, rear axle) Fenders are made from milliput using a Humbrol paint jar as template... The grill on the bonnet sides, was quite a challenge, but after 3-4 trials I finally was sa
  16. I know this may be a stupid question, but when I was a kid, this Mustang was very popular in the UK thanks to the Matchbox 1/72nd Kit. At the time, Dooleybirds upper cockpit surround were always shades of blue. Nowadays though, they seem to be invariably yellow with an OD anti-glare shield. Is this based on anything concrete, or simply Back and White Photo translation? I can understand why the OD Glare shield is now common currency, but having seen this plane in profiles and models which have DF loops which the original did not have, I am just trying to figure out if there is anythin
  17. Here's my Spit, which I began over two years ago, with an extended break in between... (The WIP is here) This was a kit of firsts for me: My first camo paint job My first use of aftermarket decals, resin, and photo etch parts It would be no surprise for me to report that it was a well engineered kit and any fit problems I may have experienced were of my own doing... Further, I was delighted for the most part with the resin parts, especially the engine rocker covers, the pilot seat, and the cockpit hatch... I am not sure I would purchase the cockpit add-ons, other than the photo etched co
  18. Hi folks, I've been working on this little project for a while, my first injection moulded kit, subject the T31 training glider used for several decades by the Air training Corps gliding schools. I've done pretty much all the kit design, including decals, and have had several 3D printed sets of parts made to check assembly. I'll have these on show, with some CAD images, at the forthcoming ScaleModelWorld show at Telford. If you are there, do call by and have a look if you can. Scale is 1:32 so it will match the Revell glider kits, and a whole lot more besides! Kit will be injection moulded
