    SBD-3 done

    A scouting 10 SBD-3 from Enterprise, October 1942. In the Battle of Santa Cruz this a/c, along with another, surprised the Zuiho with successful attacks and got away scot free. One of Trumpeters better kits. After market items are Eduard seat belts (thanks Andre!) and the rear guns which are brass that I bought many years ago and used on a Matchbox SBD build. I do not remember who made them. I also took the wheels from the Matchbox kit and used them here. The armor plate(s) were scratch built. Paints used were Colourcoats for the exterior and Model Master for the interior (mixed to suit my eye
  2. Our club sponsors a 'Build the Same Kit' contest every year, which includes aircraft and armor options so thought to try something different I'd take on a small project : the Trumpeter Bradley M2A2 but dressed in WWII Camo scheme. The kit was very cheap, so why not? The obligatory box art shot: Not a lot of parts to the kit, but a fair amount of interior detail considering the scale and most of it will be covered up: I have interior shots SOMEWHERE but no clue where they went. There are a LOT of seats inside one of these things, but unless you put the read door down and open
  3. Finally some new releases from Zactomodels! For the new Trumpeter MiG-29A and UB kits: Exhausts - These were made by modifying and adapting the exhausts Alexander Rogal made for the MiG-29M/K kit (also used for the Zactomodels Revell correction set). They are now full depth. I slightly revised the shape of the outer exhaust petals to have a more accurate shape. This is closer to the original part that Alexander made which I had to modify to fit, but didn't quite nail the shape. Top is the new shape. Lower is the previous version that had too much curve on the petals. S
  4. Hello all, Ive been working on this for a while between projects as it took a fair amount of time to get the 'snow-flage' right, I think I got there in the end. I have recently swapped paint to Mr Colour lacquer's, I must admit I was a little on edge using them, but they are fantastic to work with. Only added extras to the kit are the seat belt from eduard, as ever, its built to look right so please forgive in-accuracies' in my work or the kit. All comments are welcome.... P.S. I apologise about the white background, but I could find anything else to cover the bac
  5. I cracked this open mid summer '16 with hopes to finish by 7 Dec for 75 anniversary. Pearl Harbor P36, P40B, A6M2b. As usual, life, family and another wrecked knee kept my bench-time to a minimum. My bench is configured as a 36" (91cm) tall standing bench. The wrecked knee dictated my time to no more than 30 minute sessions. Trumpy's P40B with all it's known short comings. Will address cockpit, wheel well, fabric and rivet issues. P40B "White 300" based at Bellows Field 7 Dec, 1941. This Bellows Field post 7 Dec P40B has seen better days. The cockpit is short so I
  6. Hello all, I thought id try something a little ambitious on this 109 as I had three sets of decals for a Fliegerkompanie J-371 Bf-109 E-3, I guess I swung away from doing it before as the size of the decals was a little scary. So I painted it up ready for the decals knowing I had a degree of safety having three sets to get it right............hmmmmm! I gave up,and then broke out the masking tape for a masking marathon ​. In hindsight, it was the only way to get this scheme done and I am pretty happy with the overall result. All comments are welcome
  7. This is a my second build in a few days that I have completed while I'm trying to get my mo-jo back for the ju-87 I am building. The model kit is from Trumpeter kit and builds quite well, only issue I found was the correct seating of the undercarriage. The way the undercarriage is built up is a bit of a strange approach and doesn't exactly help the modeller and once complete, it isn't the strongest 'set' I've come access, other than that, a good build. Built out of the box and painted with Humbrol paints except for Mr Hobby for the RLM04 yellow. Hope you like it, all c
  8. Hello guys, I took these photos of a former VNAF Skyraider on display in Saigon. Incidentally the propeller blades on this plane are mounted backwards (back to front). Should they be mounted properly, I wouldn't have noticed this curious detail: a small angled 'ledge' running lengthwise on the trailing edge of the blade. Now that I know it's there, I can see it on several other Skyraider photos although it's hard to notice since the 'ledge' is located on the back of the propeller. Can you A-1 experts shed some light on this curious detail? Thank you Quang
  9. Hi guys, I'm currently building the 1/32 A-1H Skyraider from Trumpeter. Can you tell me about the stick-like ordnance these A-1 are wearing? I read somewhere that they are practice dummies. I'd like to know more about them and maybe get a link to some close-up photos. Can you help me? Cheers, Quang
  10. Hello I was wondering what your thoughts on the Trumpeter MiG-29 UB. In general what aftermarket do you think it needs? I was looking at Aries aftermarket exhaust if the kit needed it? For example. What decals are available? How are the north star quality for the Wheels early and late? Thanks in advance Danny
  11. Now here is a serious release of an oft-neglected subject: http://www.trumpeter-china.com/index.php?g=home&m=product&a=show&id=3059 If I'm not mistaken, this is a more recent kit, and has no reviews on it???? Anyone here know about it? I mean, it has to beat the old 1/48 Special Hobby no-locating-pins/mixed-media release, and the local price is not bad...
  12. Hi everyone! I've been a lurker here for far too long! For years. I've learned so much from all your builds and got heaps of inspiration, so thank you! On the bench the past few weeks, (started 15ish years ago) is my Trumpeter hog. I'm building a 1991 Desert Storm 23rd TFW. To me, it's the classic hog. Growing up in the 80's, this was my favorite jet and I loved watching them at the local air shows. The Trump kit has a strange mix of old and modern detail, so there's going to be a lot of mods to backdate it properly. I've got all the usual aftermarket goodies lined up for it: Cut
  13. P-40 finished. I made few corrections and added things to cockpit and engine. Tail wheel bay is bulit from scratch. Decals are from Techmod and gun barrels and pitot tube are from Master. Unfortunately i broke pitot tube ending. Edit. As always I forgot about something. Gunsight added: Works in progress thread: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=69082
  14. Hi, my new project is a Trumpeter P-40B/Tomahawk in African RAF colors: Photo of my plane: It will be mostly from the box. Now i'm doing the cockpit. I found an easy way to correct it's too high position. I cutted the support for floor and i putted it under the back plate: After this i added an rib extension to cover a hole which appeared: I know that this is not entirely correct but for me it's good enough.
  15. Trumpeter MiG-3 with Part set, resin exhausts and Montex masks. Inscription on the side means "For the motherland". Nice kit with, surprisingly, no major errors. I improved few things like a propeller blades - awfully thick in the kit. As a support for photos I used old cigarette case from Soviet Union when Saint Petersburg was a Leningrad. For Poland where I live, it was a dark and hard time. May it never come back.
  16. Well, what do you do if you have to wait for parts for your other projects being milled or 3D printed? Easy, get one of your most expensive kits out of your shelf and start hacking it into pieces, add some styrene and make it look even uglier than before, just for fun. Well, that's not exactly how it was. While it's true that I cannot proceed with my other projects as I am really waiting for essential parts to be produced, I was planning to build an EA-6B since the Trumpeter Intruder was announced. The only problem was - the kit was just too expensive. Having spent a few hours on the net
  17. Well it seems like i have not done a WIP for years , so heres one from me. This is my all time favourite kit. The 1/32 TBF-1C Avenger from Trumpeter. Its a great kit crammed with detail. I have built a few of these in the past so i am going with RNZAF Avenger "Plonky". The build will be mostly OOB. Heres my progress so far. I have assembled the interior. The forward section is my own mix of greens to get the bronze green colour , the rest of the interior is again my own mix of interior green. Everything fits great. I decided to go with the HGW belts. There is not a set for the Avenger so i w
  18. Hi guys, Having actually started this model instead of just looking at the parts and then putting the box in the cupboard, I thought a thread recording the build might help keeping me on track. Trumpeter Swordfish. Out of the box, it makes up into a very impressive model. There are quite a few aftermarket sets for it, most of which I seem to have added to the stash! Like all kits though there are plenty of areas that could be improved upon, so I thought I'd give it a go. I have also started a bit of web site at www.flyingstart.info, but I suspect I'll get the progress pics here before updati
  19. Hi all, I thought I'd post some photos of my 1/32 Trumpeter Ju 87A, done in Condor Legion colours. The markings are custom masks, as is the emblem on the spat. The model was built with Eduard extras, and the paints are from MRP (Mr Paint, Slovakia). In all, a trouble-free project. I modded the cowl to correct a couple of anomalies but didn't bother with the lower spat shape. I could live with that. This model and build article are in the latest edition of Military Illustrated Modeller, which should be in the shops right now.
  20. Hello! I am in with Trumpies well-known F4U-4 kit. With Snake! - markings of course Have the kit on the to-do list for some time. I want to build it OOTB, only adding a little bit of AM to overcome ejector pin mark jamborees around the UC and to correct a few omissions of Trumpeter; mainly seat harness and prop shapes. So I will go with the kit and: - Aires wheel bays - SAC UC legs - Eduard interior PE - Quickboost visier - Rutman prop blades - Rutman wheels Next stop: Stashdiving to locate Jerrys resin parts... - dutik
  21. After finishing my first full resin kit for the Eric Brown GB (HS-123), I needed a good fitting kit for a change. As I just finished reading Flyboys from James Bradley (an excellent book) about Avenger pilots being shot down over Chichi Jima (150 miles from Iwo Jima), one of which being George H. Bush (who was rescued by a US submarine), I decided to finally build the Avenger in which '41 was shot down over Chichi Jima. I had this kit in the stash for a while and had slowly collected AM for this build. I am not aware of decals for the President Avenger so I will go the paint masks route, than
  22. The “Bismarck†was the first of two Bismarck-class battleships built for Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine. Named after Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, the primary force behind theunification of Germany in 1871, the ship was laid down at the Blohm & Voss shipyard in Hamburg in July 1936 and launched in February 1939. Work was completed in August 1940, when she was commissioned into the German fleet. Bismarck and her sister ship Tirpitz were the largest battleships ever built by Germany, and two of the largest built by any European power. In the course of the warship's eight-month career und
  23. Hi, A new project for me. I had the Trumpeter kit starring at me for years, and i was looking for a reason to not to. With release of a Mig-21 Lancer from Icaerodesign, it was just to much to resist. This conversion looks very nice at the first sight, and i must say that it's even better when you start playing with, at least for the cockpit (i only started the cockpit so far). The fit is really excellent and it's a simple replacement of the kit parts. No surgery needed. It's designed to build a Lancer C, the air to air version. There are also a strike version and a 2 seater A and B
  24. Hello folks, I start a new project. This is the bad (very bad) Trumpeter Lightning F.6. I know, this kit has a lot of mistakes from Trumpeter. But I really like this Big, Monster Britain Jet !!! I will add a Aires cockpit and exhaust. The decal sheet is from Xtradecal. Ok, maestro :
