  1. I'm going to be building what is for me one of the most beautiful aeroplanes ever designed: The wonderful Hawker Fury. https://vintageaviationecho.com/flying-the-hawker-fury/ The Fury I entered squadron service with the RAF in May 1931, re-equipping 43 Squadron. Only relatively small numbers of Fury Is were ordered, the type equipping No. 1 and 25 squadrons. At the same time, the slower Bristol Bulldog equipped ten fighter squadrons. The Fury II entered service in 1936–1937, increasing total number of squadrons to six. Furies remained with RAF Fighter Command
  2. This will the first of what I hope will be two, perhaps three entries for the Trainers GB. Ever since I received my Silver Wings Tiger Moths I've been impatiently waiting to build one, the review promises a cracking kit but I hope that what I wrote comes to fruition! https://www.largescaleplanes.com/reviews/review.php?rid=2317 Mine will be finished as a trainer of No. 28 Elementary Flying and Training School, Mount Hampden, Southern Rhodesia circa 1943: The badge of the Rhodesian Air Training Group:
  3. 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
  4. Max Williams takes a look at the new resin Tiger Moth kit from Silver Wings. Many thanks Max! Iain
  5. Well just for change I'm doing (another) Silver Wings Fw44 Stieglitz! This one I'm very happy to say is a commission build for the lucky chap who owns and flies this beauty: It took Richard 5 years to restore this one, and he's actually restoring another original Luftwaffe one right now, but the model will be depicted as D-EMNN. We will be using the swastika on the model rather than the Focke-Wulf logo on the plane. Having recently completed one Stieglitz I'm thinking about bits I struggled with, techniques used and order
  6. At last I've had the time and the weather to get out to take some pictures of my Stieglitz, just in time really because I see that I started it on 2 January of this year! Like all the Silver Wings kits it is beautifully produced and a real pleasure to build. I hope you like it as much as I do!!
  7. 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
  8. I may come to regret this, but after the intensity of finishing my AIMS conversion Bf110G4 in the "In the Pale Moonlight GB", I feel that I need a more "simple" build to get my head straight and before getting involved in the Multi-engined GB with my Anson. I bought this kit early last year and have been itching to build it ever since: The Fw44 Stieglitz (goldfinch) was one of the main training aircraft for the Luftwaffe in the 30s and 40s and was flown by Peter Spoden, a former Nachtjager and gentleman who I've been privileged to meet:
  9. After a long battle Fiat is finished. Markings are my own work + old masks and decals from other models. Work in progress topic: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=69719&hl= My Spanish collection - Cricket, Rata and Stuka. All beautiful in their own way :
  10. Finally it's done ! I've started it more than one year ago, but most of the time it stayed on my bench half built and untouched. I restarted it a few weeks ago, and was very happy to meet this model again. It was a pleasure to build for a resin kit, with a very good fit and a very few issue (maybe the only issues were my fault). The painting was not easy though, as i had to cut masks for everything, and the yellow wings also ask for a lot of masking. Yellow is definitely not an easy color to paint. It is almost translucent, and even the tiniest bit of dust is visible. The olive drab
  11. Hi guys, I am happy to present here my finished Stearman from Silver Wings WIP build thread you can find here Overall it is a nice kit, which comes together really well, with no fit issues. Even though that I planned this build as a quick one, in the end it took me almost 3 months to finish and despite a few minor obstacles described in the WIP I really enjoyed this building. And although it is not perfectly built, I am happy with the result Painted mainly with Gunze C, weathering stuff from AMMO. and thanks go to Steve for his valuable advice and recommendations during the build.
  12. Hi guys, was thinking about easy project to run it together with my bigger projects just to relax a little bit and be able to complete the model rather than a few months and because Steaman is one of my favourite aircraft I have decided to start Silver Wings all resin beauty my aim is this one... Just some snap shots of kit content Im plan to build it OOB except to HGW seatbelts. For smaller part CA glue will be used, for main parts HP epoxy, and Gunze C paints and some subtle weathering for finish have started with engine, upper wing and cokpit so far gre
  13. Hi all, Here she is. All finished. The resin Silver Wings 1/32 Fokker D.21. Started this kit on april 29 and finished today. So about 2,5 months. A joy to build. Great fit but challenging instructions. Take your time and you'll be fine. I added: • Master barrels turned brass gun barrels (2 sets). • Some minor details on the door (locks, hinge, etc..) That's it. Used Gunze paints all over and AK interactive panel washes. Also AK Interactive lense crystal clear and transparent red and green for the navigation lights. The aerial is EZ-line. Build log here: http://foru
  14. Hi all, Right in the middle of building the Silver Wings Fokker D.21 kit I reviewed recently. The fit is great. The instructions can be challenging. Instrument panel with Ammo Crystal Clear: Rudder controls, stick and floor boards: Some fitting: The Bristol Mercury engine: More pics here: http://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/3688-silver-wings-132-fokker-d21/ Cheers, Jeroen
