  1. I think it is time to queue up my next LSP project. I want to get out of the 109/190 groove and try something different (for me anyway) and I've settled on a Luftwaffe jet fighter, the Me 262. My subject will be this aircraft... Lots of cool visual features on this aircraft.... the hard mottle on the tail... the blue and white checkers... the yellow numerals... the bold skull badge... so the painting and markings should be fun to do. Here is a profile by Tom Tullis that shows what the entire plane may have looked like... I'll be using the Tr
  2. My fascination with Soviet Cold-War military hardware continues unabated. The Hind is arguably the most iconic helicopter gunship ever conceived. Sure, it has been technically surpassed by now, but not before striking fear into the hearts of all who tried to run or hide from its near alien presence! Given the pivotal role the Mi-24 played in Afghanistan, it is hardly surprising that at the same time it would end up in another supposed Cold-War proxy - Angola. It was flown by Russians, Cubans and Angolans (and possibly even East Germans) during some of the most intense
  3. Well, it's the first weekend of March Break here in Canada so I thought I'd start something new. We'll see if I can get it done before the end of next weekend when the kids gonna k to school. I've decided to skip most of the AM on this build, hence the optimism about getting it done. Also because the ResKit rocket pods are damaged from shipping and unusable. I will however use the DN Models paint masks for the tiger stripes and canopies. Carl
  4. Herewith, as promised on WIP, some more photographs of my Angolan Mi-24. Should you be interested in the build here is the link: And just to spice it up a bit, a companion from Angola - this is a MiniArt T-55.
  5. Having finished almost finished my revell P-51D, I decided to go for the Trumpeter Warhawk. Of course, the kit does have issues. After looking at the kit, 2 things strike me. One, the nose IS misshapen, already addressed is the side profile, with that huge bulge going front, but one thing no one seem to notice is that on top profile, the nose actually is wide. Second is the intake. Just. Ugh. Being a short tail, I needed to convert it to a long tail. So I got me a Grey Matter 1/32 Long Tail conversion, normally for the Hasegawa kit. I also got me the sprue for the exha
  6. I’ve just picked up the Trumpeter English Electric second hand. I was wandering if anyone on here has built one and if so any comments to concerns with the kit? Also , What am bits might be worth adding? Any advise would be appreciated .
  7. Just finished this one. This was on the shelf of doom for quite a while. I had purchased the kit for quite cheap and, due to the shape issues of the kit, it ended up being the last Bf 109 in my kit stash, so I figured I would go ahead and build it. However, I managed to destroy the canopy/windscreen parts before completion and also started to be really annoyed by looking at the shape issues, so I just shelved it. I finally decided to use a vac canopy from my spares and modify it to fit. I also sanded down the huge sharp corners that come off the trailing edge of the wing root fairing, into the
  8. Hi, i decided to show my new project which is older version of Thunderbolt. I will add Eduard etch for cockpit and cut out a panel on side to show guts behind engine. Trumpeter provided many interior goods so it's really a shame not to present them. Painting will be Pied Paper or Passionate Patsy, unfortunately Kagero done decals only for Bubbletop Patsy, so i have artwork only, without serial number on tail (problem) or code on side (smaller problem). Does anybody have photo of Razorback Patsy with 3 downed planes? I have seen model with that but have only photos where plane
  9. So there I sat, staring at the 4 (!) Poorly organized sprues that are the Revell 1/48 B-17. Looking at all the flash, the poorly fitting pieces, and the struggle of fitting all the aftermarket, I sighed, put everything neatly back in the box, and put off my cutaway B-17 yet again. Looking for something not too challenging, a little different, and that wouldn't take too long, I pulled this kit off of my shelf. Perfect. Not too many parts, good details right OOB, and a colorful pre-war paint scheme. I started as per instructions with the cockpit, which goes together nicely after clea
  10. Cheers everybody, it's bee a while since I finished my big Prowler - buying a new background for my photo booth was a good opportunity to finally take some photos of the finished model. For those who haven't followed the build, here's the link to the WIP thread: https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/57040-how-to-destroy-an-expensive-kit-with-just-a-few-cuts-or-prowler33/ Photo quality is not ideal, I've been playing around with the photo settings but I am obviously not a good photographer... Anyway, comments, questions and critique are welcome
  11. 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
  12. Trumpeter's MiG-29A is a great model to build, and I'm sure the C will be too. Unfortunately it suffers from some shape issues, and in this build I set out to correct them. It took a while. Here is the build thread should you be interested: This is MiG-29G 29+04 in NATO colours, serving with "Erprobungsgeschwader MiG 29". I was drawn to the subject by the wonderful conflict of ideals it represents. The aircraft is a symbol of how the re-unification must have been in a way, wearing a cloak of Norm 90 J grey, but peeking out from underneath, the original radome c
  13. Hey everyone, long time no talked, Since I built that baby OOB 4 years ago, I always wanted to do a NAM Raider a bit different than the usual one we mostly see.... And had that one stalled in my stash for quite a while.... And then came AOA came with this sheet........ hummmm, why not peanut.. And most particularly this one... Ohhhh YES...... Iron rain you asked, Iron rain you'll get....lol. with a touch of heat..... Didn't get all my goodys yet and still have some more to order but want to keep it a very simple, built and no fancy scratch at

  15. A job has been on and off for 2 months since June 2018. It's one of my satisfied work in my personal US Naval Air Force builds. I have added the smoke on the photos and called it Visual Diorama.
  16. After completing the second of the two P-47D, I couldnt help myself with the title of this post :-) This aircraft is 42-75242 which was flown by Capt Michael Quirk flying for 62nd FS/56th FG, Halesworth. Now the two Jug's together...... Jug #2 can be seen @ Thanks for looking at me Jugs
  17. Started on the 9th of December... Every year I try to do a 'clear the bench' build over Christmas, this year it was this one: Not sure why folks seem to shy-away from the Trumpy 109E kits almost all the completed ones that I have seen here are from the Eduard and Dragon kits. Ahh well... I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this one. Perfect fit everywhere, lots of detail, excellent etch, decals and phenomenal clear parts. (not so excellent rub
  18. Happy new year to the modelling world and builders!! This is my 1/32 Trumpeter P-47D Razorback with the Kits-world War Birds decals used. This kit went together well, even though there a few minor instruction issues, but nothing major to overcome. Painted with MRP paints...……….which are highly recommended! Built out of the box other than the decals. A bit about the man:- 2Lt Paul Ellison who was shot down by flak on 17th July 1944 while flying "Tipsy". After taking off from Picauville he was hit by flak just after bombing the bridge at Conde-sur-Vire. Bits of t
  19. So here's my first entry to the GB. JG300 Red 12 Bf 109 G-6/R-6 Bonn-Hangelar 1943, a great messy scheme to work with. Using the Trumpeter kit as a base simply because I can open the engine up and its fully riveted already. Got the owl PE acoustic pipes and a Reever prop. HGW fabric seatbelts via Eduard (slightly cheaper option) and Makatar masks.
  20. Hello all! Having recently purchased the 1/32 Trumpeter MiG-21 MF kit, I started to compare it with my 1/48 Eduard MF, just to see if fuselage dimensions were similar after enlarging them 150%. I noticed the front fuselage was off and turned to a good scale plan and published dimensions of the fuselage length. The plan is from Wings and Wheels Publications and more dimensions came from the Docavia #33 on the MiG design bureau and has much information. Photos show the problem. The nose is short 8mm. It also looks shrunken. The error is
  21. here is a kit that we do not see much, it is under finishing for the moment : voila, there is still a lot of work to finish it
  22. CLICK HERE to view and/or buy $12.95 Shipping: $2.70 U.S, - $9.95 elsewhere Includes tracking and insurance. Sheet contains placards and instruments that fit the kit parts with minimal modifications. Because these are dry transfers (applied wet) there is no clear film so the placards fit over and around kit details precisely. Comes with highly detailed illustrated placement instructions which show where the placards and instruments are to be placed on the kit parts. This product is not intended to be a doctoral thesis on Wildcat cockpits. This product is i
  23. Looks like Trumpy are catching up with some of their back catalogue... http://www.trumpeter-china.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=139&l=en P-40F out this Autumn. Does that mean the F-100F isn't far behind? Tony This will be edited to activate the link

  25. I am feeling some strong urges to tackle the Trumpeter A6=A in USMC Vietnam-era colors (land-based or carrier-based is equally OK). Can one of y'all provide a list of all the AM things I should include? Spare no detail. Thanks in advance.
