  1. First of all I'd like to point out that I've been a long-time lurker that has gotten a lot of information on large scale aircraft here and figured it might be time to send something back. I'm actually a mostly 1/72 modeller, but after finishing a beautiful WnW Fokker D.VII as my first 1/32 kit in ages, I kind of picked up the bug again. My last 1/32 somewhat modern aircraft was a Revell F-14A in VF-1 markings that I put on the television back then -until my mom dusted it off and it fell off, despite the rubber grippy tires! As it would fit nowhere near on a modern TV I guess that tells so
  2. I’ve been a little in the doldrums modelling wise for the last few weeks. My Harrier has stalled and made its way to the Shelf of Doom for a little while, I just can’t seem to get the mojo to get into it properly. This year and it’s madness has seen me forced to sell all my camera equipment to keep up with bills, as I had no wedding bookings for the entire year, leaving me with virtually zero income, and an uncertain future right now. Add into all this that I had a rude awakening with my health recently which means I’ve gotta commit a whole heap of time to exercising to improve that si
  3. This is the day I've been looking forward to since the day I started on this project in March, 2019. Our full rivet replacement kits for the SBD are finally bagged and ready to ship to LSP members exclusively at a $25 savings. The retail on this is $195.95 but your price is $170 plus shipping. The link to buy is HERE. You can see a full SBD-5 build using this kit HERE. Photo © Brett Matthews
  4. I had hoped to record building the Flightpath Houchin GPU unit as well as the Harrier, but it was by far the hardest thing I've tried to assemble, and I never really knew when I'd finished each stage as I had to keep re-doing everything. Oh well. Displayed on 2x Coastal kits vinyl bases. Only extras used on the Harrier were some Airscale decals for cockpit gauges and Flying Leathernecks det cord. I’m aware the loadout is inaccurate for an RAF Harrier, particularly Snakeyes with laser Mavs. I’ve never seen an RAF Harrier without fuel tanks but it’s my favourite mount in DCS (those w
  5. Hi all After lurking in the shadows, I've eventually got my act together and am starting a post regarding my first build here on LSP . I've built quite a few kits, but this one is going to be my first in the public domain.....I know that there is an "In the Navy" GB going on, but I'm not sure I'll make the deadline for that GB, so didn't post this there. It's going to be a kitbash of the Hasegawa and Trumpeter Hellcats - if it goes that far - but my plan is to use the Hasegawa fuselage mated to the Trumpeter wings, as both kits IMO have their good and bad points. I've got a fair bi
  6. OK - want an excuse to build this - I have a hellcat (trump) and 2xTamy corsairs (all already on show here), but this is stinking up my stash... I want to build it 'in flight' mode using the 'blur blades' and using the Tamiya pilot and stand. That way I don't need to worry too much about the cockpit, and tires... ;-) Also experimenting for the first time with paining masks from Montex - this is my first GB or Build on LSP - so be kind ;-)
  7. Afternoon/evening everyone! Hopefully, everyone enjoyed the New Year. Here is my finished build of Trumpeter's 1/32 SBD-5 Dauntless. I've modeled this after the planes the RZNAF used in World War 2 for a 3 months by 25 Squadron before being returned the US, and switching to F4U Corsairs (thanks Alan!). After starting the 1/32nd world with Tamiya's Corsair, this was a bit of a change! Thankfully, even if it's not super crisp like Tamiya, it still built up quite nicely. Aftermarket includes the following: Archer Fine Transfers complete resin raised rivet
  8. Hey guys, how about a big Flanker...? Sorry I'm late, but still, there is plenty of time for that big bird..... not planning to do fancy stuff nor scratch... for now.. I'm going to use Wolfpack pit, Linden Hill decal, Aerobonus pilot and maybe I'll try some Reskit after market like their Exhaust and twin store carrier.... . Had that huge box on my top shelf for over 10 years or so..... Wasn't sure about doing the version in the kit, until I got my hand on that Linden Hill sheet from a resaler at Ajax contest. The ''George and Dr
  9. Hello everyone, my name is Woody and I’m a rivet counter. Before we get started, a little more about myself. I started building models “seriously” in the late 80s, but building a business doesn’t leave time for much else so the last time I actually finished one was back in 1996. Keeping in mind that I’m now 72 with cataracts developing (surgery is scheduled) and hands that are slowly turning into boxing gloves - onto the build. The Wildcat would never have been something I would choose to build, but in the course of developing our line of aircraft rivet sets I figured
  10. Hi all! Hope everyone is doing well! With the JASDF F-4EJ done, I will now be moving on to my next project. This time, I have decided to build Trumpeter's 1/32 MiG-21UM in the Czech Stress Team's rather eye catching livery. Aftermarket sets for this kit are limited but I will be using the following: CAM KM-1 resin seats Quickboost FOD covers HAD resin wheels Master Model metal pitot tubes Some scratchbuilding in the cockpit and wheel wells will also be required. I'm aware of the kit's shape and dimension issues, however, I'm not
  11. I'm also working on the Trumpeter 1/16 Panther G. I am building a late war (Feb 45) version with the early version kit, since the late version only comes with the steel wheels. To do this, I am adding the following from the late version kit: —crew heater (added after Oct 44) —flame dampener exhausts —late idlers (only the Daimler Benz Panthers kept the early idlers late war) —one set of steel wheels Fortunately the early version includes the chin mantlet option (introduced Sept 44) already. Now, I did mess up when I contacted Trumpeter's customer service
  12. Hello, everyone. This is my completed vignette that I’m calling, “The Avengers of Guadalcanal.” During the long, grueling campaign for the Solomon Islands, Allied and Japanese forces threw themselves at each other for months. Pitched night naval battles, furious aerial melees, and bitter ground combat were the brutal hallmarks of what I feel was truly the turning point in the Pacific War. By November 1942, American forces were desperately holding on to Henderson Field on Guadalcanal in an effort to keep the Cactus Air Force flying. One of the many units fed into the grinder w
  13. I know I'm kinda late to the party here, but there's still plenty of time left. I just went and ordered myself some intake covers for this kit because I've read that there's a nasty seam in the engine/air intakes so those should be nice and covered now. I did mean to start this a couple of months ago, but I came down with the flu, then my gallbladder issues, then I had a penicillin allergy when I came home (broke out in itchy hives) and after all that, I got a sinus infection. On the up side I did win $2 on a scratchy lotto ticket, so hey things are looking better! Here she is. I p
  14. When the test shots cam out a few years back some drooled others were rivet critical and a few thought that this would be the ultimate Tomcat kit. There is no denying that as a package this model kit impresses before you open the box. A box which is so robust and protective that they even provide a carry handle built in so you can transport it like a piece of luggage. I've built several Tamiya and Revell big cats over the years and both of these had their good and bad points so I was eager to see what Trumpeter had come up with. The first thing to hit you is the packaging inside, e
  15. Hello all, I hope everyone is keeping safe in these crazy times. While I have been off due to this enforced lockdown I started the Trumpeter ME262 A-1a heavy armament kit and wanted to do it in the colours of yellow 3 from KG(J)54. The kit decals seemed a big 'off' so I invested in Eagalcals #95-32 sheet and the colours seemed much better than the kit originals. I have been my best to get the scheme right, but even I will admit that its not quite right, but I think it looks pretty good, certainly a good learning session for sure. Painted with Gunze Sanyo (
  16. 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
  17. Hello, This is my first finished job on this resource. The model was built for a long time, with long interruptions and many improvements that he did on his own, without resorting to an aftermarket. He deepened the lining and added riveting on the wings. Modified the interior of the cabin. Modified screw and screw sleeve. Chassis racks are made 80% anew. I eased the creepy and ugly mounds to simulate the canvas on the steering surfaces. He painted with Mr.Color paints, two satin finish varnishes (made himself from Future + Tamiya Flat Base) and a dull matte from Testors. Regards,
  18. Waiting for some parts for F-16, I decided to reanimate project which was started some time ago. Actually I was suprised when I checked tho initial photo dates: December 2013. I've put this model to box for a while and almost 7 years passed, so I think it would be nice to finish it. First some photos takes in other era: . . . . Mostly out of the box with only Aires cockpit and some bombs/missiles. But first thing first - engine. Nice, but won't be visible at all, so it was time to play with some Alclads: . . And fitted: Next addi
  19. Wow! The 1/32 Trumpeter F-100F looks set for release this summer! http://www.trumpeter-china.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=183&l=en Wanted to build a Connecticut Air Guard camo'd example since 1979. So, there's still hope for the Devastator then! (Though frankly, I hope enthusiasm for Century Series might give us a Six and Deuce) Tony

  21. Guys, i'm back! This time not with something in 1/48 or smaller. That thing... It's the Trumpeter kit, my second 1/32 scale model, and it's quite huge It's so ever slightly bigger than the F-15 in lenght and even in wingspan, which impressed me a bit. Alright, let's do it. I plan a rather slow and longer build. Some may know very well the quality and what's in the box, but i'm gonna make a thorough review these days whatsoever. Here is just a quick glimpse: And of course, i'll take advantage of the AFV Cl
  22. I almost never work on two kits at once, especially when they are big. However, I simply could not wait to share the other build I have been working on, the Slovakian MiG-29AS in digital camouflage. I have had the Trumpeter MiG-29A kit for several years now and have collected some aftermarket: Scale-Pro Digital Camouflage Stencils Quickboost Nosecone Quickboost Ejection Seat Eduard Cockpit Set Eduard Canopy Mask Mastermodel Pitot Tube Tamiya "Bird Slicers" IFF antennae I could be mistaken (certainly not the first time), but I believe the ai
  23. A lot of time passed since my last post here, I promise I'll try to be more active. Since my MiG-23, I finished 4 birds, I'll present one of them here, next will post in a few days. My Nighthawk was made almost Out of the box, I've changed only wheels for Eduard ones. Base was inspired by last flight box by Academy. Biggest problem was with exhaust painting, I did some research, but it is so hard to find a decent photos, so it is my vision of exhaust. Watch and comment - and please, be gentle. . . . . . . . . . . .
