1/32 Hasegawa Bf109K-4 Weisse 8
Thunnus posted a topic in Works in ProgressI'm going to see if I can keep two builds going at once. I'm almost to the halfway point on the Corsair build and once the wings are complete, painting will begin and I think that is a good time to have another project going. This is the Hasegawa Bf109K-4 kit. I've not built this one yet but having built the Hasegawa Fw190D-9 three times, I feel a sense of familiarity as I look at the sprues on this kit. I'll be adding some aftermarket to this build including, in no particular order: 1. Eagle Editions 109K-4 Resin Cockpit Set 2. Henri Daehne 109G/K Resin Prop Set 3. RB Productions 109K-4 Wheel Well Detail Set 4. RB Productions 109G/K Erla Canopy 5. Barracuda Studios 109G/K Resin Wheels 6. AIMS Late War 109s Decal Sheet 7. Eagle Cals 109K-4 #32-74 Decal Sheet 8. Airscale Luftwaffe Instrument and Placard Decal Sheets 9. MDC resin ammo chutes 10. Eduard masks The aircraft I will be modeling is White 8, Werk Nummer 332884, which was captured in this striking color photo: It's represented in this profile painting by Claes Sundin: And also recently by AIMS Models on their Late War 109s decal sheet: Since I have Silhouette Portrait cutter, I will be using the AIMS decal sheet to produce masks for the major markings. The only decal I will be using from the AIMS sheet will probably be the "Gabi" inscription below the canopy. The Eagle Cals 109K-4 sheet will be available for stencils. I am going to try and use the AIMS and Eagle Cals decal sheets to produce masks for the spinner spiral.
1/32 Zoukei-Mura Ta152H-0 White 7
Thunnus posted a topic in Works in ProgressThis is going to be my next project. A large scale Tank fighter... a Ta 152H-0, which I will be backdating from the Z-M Ta152H-1 kit. I am planning on utilizing a few upgrades including: 1. Henri Daehne Ta 152H-1 Resin Prop and Spinner 2. RB Productions Ta 152H Photoetch Cockpit set 3. Zoukei-Mura Photoetch Exterior Set 4. Zoukei-Mura Photoetch Landing Flaps 5. Zoukei-Mura Metal Legs The subject will be White 7, which has the W.Nr. of 150007. It was Ta152H-0 converted from the prototype designated CW+CG. I also have some other photos and a nice color profile of White 7 in Thomas Hitchcock's Ta152 book. I tried source a set of H-0 wings and was unsuccessful so I will have to do the modifications manually, which I believe are restricted to the wing bottoms. This will be my first large scale Z-M kit. I've heard many good things about the unique mindset that Z-M uses in designing model kits and it will be interesting to see how if fits with my no-panels-open approach to building. The instructions look like a vintage pilot's manual and offers a combination of rendered drawings and photographs... very unique! This particular boxing, which was the only Ta152H kit available at the time, is based on an anime series but includes everything in the original H-1 release including a full sheet of decals. The decals seem to be well printed and include decals for the instrument panel and the cockpit side panels. There is a smaller decal sheet with the anime-specific markings, if you want to go that route. Also included are what appear to be pre-cut canopy masks. I'll be taking a look at the kit sprues and some aftermarket goodies next.

Wackyracer posted a topic in Ready for InspectionCalling this one done. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the build. Learnt some new techniques including my first rivet job and also learnt hairspray and masking tape don't mix no matter how long its been on! 1/32 Hasegawa FW190 A-8 Aaron
RB Productions - Yokosuka MXY7 Ohka Type 22 - **FIN!**
Out2gtcha posted a topic in Works in ProgressWell, with the fury of the Nationals over-with, one tends to go in 1 of 2 directions; "I need a break!" or "I need to capitalize on this!" I spent WAY too much money, but had WAY more fun than Ive ever had at a model contest, and the LSPers that showed were the reason. It was a blast. I am in that last category, and really wanted to capitalize on the feeling of modeling momentum I had at the end of the NATs, and get back to the bench ASAP. I had thought long and hard about what I wanted to start next, and have plethora of things in the stash, but I wanted something OOB and unique. Since the gear were missing from my OV-10 that I wanted to start, and the scheme I wanted to use for my N1K2 was not in the boxing I have, and I wanted to do a refreshing OOB build I went in a different direction.................. This is the RB Productions MXY7 Ohka Type 22 anti-shipping kamikaze attack aircraft in full resin. The little Ohka fit the bill for a lot of reasons. Its got a TON of cool stuff in the box, so no real need for AM anyway, since its a resin kit, and the molding and details are superb. Its also something else I was looking for.................SMALL. After toting around the BIG Russian girl over the weekend, I realized that if I intend at ALL to go to Phoenix next year, I need to keep the size of the models Im bringing in check, as Ill likely be banzai driving there. The little Ohkas were also pretty much used once and thats it..........after the "BOOM" there was nothing to recover, so I really wont have to do any real weathering to speak of either. I will likely contain my weathering to some washes, and some black basing, with some finish variation to the paint job for interest. This will be STRICTLY an OOB build. Lets get started!!!! The nose of the Ohka was packed with explosives, and with a top speed of 500mph+ no Allied aircraft could catch it. However, it was the slow lumbering cumbersome Betty bombers the Ohkas had to be carried in that were extremely vulnerable to Allied fighters, and in the end the Ohka was not considered a folly, but it was not a success either. It was not a very big 1:1 aircraft, which means the 32nd scale model isnt either. The RBP Ohka is REALLY well molded with a lot of PE and extra details. Radu ships the little Ohka in a sturdy removable top cardboard box: You can see with my last build sitting on top of the box for scale reference, the Ohka is not a big aircraft by any means, and its box reflects that: The instructions can be downloaded after purchase on Radus site, so I printed them off in glorious color, made up a custom cover, and 3-hole-punched the instructions, and put it all in a 3-ring binder: The little Ohka box comes packed full will with resin and PE: The main bag of resin, has some glorious looking parts in it, including the rocket turbine fan: Here you can see the wings, with separate flying surfaces. As tiny as they are, they are dwarfed by the horizontal stabs on a lot of other 32nd kits: Radu provides a really nicely cast resin wind-screen and x2 copies of a very nicely vaced canopy. I normally would have an issue there, but these vac pulls are very nice, the framing around the canopy is crisp, and I will have the canopy slid back to show the nice details in the pit, so I am not worried about trying to make sure it fits 100% snug w/the wind-screen: Clarity on the resin is excellent: MORE................................

G-ASJV Spitfire IX. LSP made me do it !
Hubert Boillot posted a topic in Keep it CivilOk, I am a strong proponent of this GB, and feel my fellow modellers should sometimes be ready to move out of their comfort range of guns-and-bombs-bristling-camoed-WWII-fighters ! I therefore hope this thread will be an encouragement for them to try something different, just as I am doing here. If you know me, or have read some of my posts, you will know that I have always professed NEVER to build a Spitstang or Messerwulf, and that my stash has more resin and esoteric injected plastic than most would consider lawful But only fools never change their mind, so here is (another) entry from me in this GB, AND my first Tamiya kit ever , AND my first Spifire ever! Now if this is not a proof of the bad influence of LSP on my firmly-set beliefs, what will be ? So here is my entry, with the compulsory "starting shots" and comments, more to take a date, as I have another one to complete in the "Jurassic Plastic" GB first, but I am now commited : Tamiya's (gorgeous, I reckon, from fondling the sprues) Spitfire Mk IXc It will be built as the famous MH434, in its G-ASJV silver, white and blue livery. No guns, not a hint a Dark Green or Ocean Grey or Medium Sea Grey ! ( I am willing to "compromise" my standards, but not to that point, guys, besides the explicit GB rules ! ) And even though it can be built OOB from all the threads I have read here, i have added a few AM, that I hope will improve on the fantastic kit base: RAM decals RAM32-002 "G-ASJV" decals sheet - that was the minimum for the entry anyway Yahu Models YMA3220 Spitfire Mk IX early instrument panel, which is the absolute bees knees when it comes to finesse of details some BarracudaCast replacements : the rock covers with the Rolls_royce logos, the 4-slot maninwheels, the door with the separate crowbar (which was possibly red in G-ASJV livery times ), the seat with leather backpad, the starboard cokpit sidewall, and finally the cockpit upgrade set with finer-than-the-kit details such as the control stick or throttle quadrant and finally, a RB Productions Sutton QS QL QP, which I conjectured would have been fitted on G-ASJV when she was sporting her blue/white/silver livery. And finally, if you ask about my "Spirit of Africa" build thread here as well, it is not forgotten, and will be continued. I felt however that interjecting an "easier" kit could be a good boost to my modelling time and possibly to the interest of this GB for my fellow LSPers. (As as side comment, I just hope that life will be more gentle for my modelling than the last week (although it looks pretty grim right now) and will spare me some bench-time in the near future. and btw, my Gee Bees build on the "Jurassic Plastic" GB has progressed, but I need to oragnise and write-up the description of this update, and that will not be before another 10 days I suspect) Thanks for enduring my ramblings !
