  1. Hi everyone, This is the Revell 1/32 F-4E kit with some aftermarket help from GT Resin in the form of exhausts, belly strap and intakes, new nose from Sierra Hotel, Aim-9Js from Cutting Edge and a cockpit from Legend. The aim was to depict a late 70's USAFE jet from the 50TFW at Hahn AFB using AirDoc decals, put her in-flight and add some lighting to bring her to life. This was sort of a learning project for me, picking up on the excellent tips found in this forum, trying out some new techniques and learning from my mistakes (of which I made a few - see build for details!). In the end it took 2 and a half years to complete so the ratio of builds to acquires is way out of kilter. Anyway, on to the pics... And with lights on... Overall, a challenging but fun build of the impressive Phantom! Build thread is here ... https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/58988-132-revell-f-4e-what-could-possibly-go-wrong/&page=1 Many thanks for looking!
  2. Hi, My name is Richie and I love the smell of burnt kerosene. Having spent many hours viewing the absolute masterpieces on this site and trying to hoover up as much inspiration as I can, I’ve decided to take the plunge and commit my effort to the wider community in an attempt to improve my game. As way of background I suffer from: a - an over-ambitious build programme that would require the invention of time travel to complete my collection. b - a lack of resistance to nice new shiny decals (that adds to the first issue). c - an inability to recognise that OOB is just fine in most cases. d - the view that 50 Shades of Grey is the epitome of panel weathering. e - a lack of sufficient minutes in the day to fit everything in (work, family, plastic fettling etc) I am also an Optimistic 80%er. By that I mean I will endeavour to add detail/changes when it makes a noticeable difference but lack of skills / patience may ultimately limit my AMS ambition to a level of ‘Good Enough’. And so to the challenge, a 1/32 Revell F-4E. This is going to be only my 2nd 1/32 effort, the first being a Revell Hawk T1, but my first on-line build. Not entirely sure of the markings yet but it will probably be an early USAFE bird in Vietnam c/s. True to form I have acquired more aftermarket stuff than I really need including: - GT Resin Intakes and Exhausts - SH replacement nose - CE Aim 9J/P - Legend F-4E Cockpit - Eduard PE - Master Details Pilot figure - Master Pitot Probes As if first night nerves wasn't enough, it will also be the first time I have used a lot of this stuff and just to make it more interesting I’m going to put her in flight and light her up. This may get ugly. For those who like their builds quick and dirty, sorry but this is going to be a slow burn (but probably dirty!). Very happy for comments, suggestions, advice etc but don’t be offended if I do something different or not quite true to life, as they say art is in the eye of the beholder. Oh, and as a cautionary tale to others I will also be keeping an catalogue of errors of all the mistakes I make. Lets hope it stays in double figures! Game on.
  3. Hello- These are pics of my Tamiya A6M2 1/32nd scale Type 21. My model depicts the aircraft of NAP1/C Tsuguo Matsuyama during the 2nd strike of the Pearl Harbor attack. The kit took me a long time to build, mainly due to life's interruptions, such as going back to college for a master's degree, and other situations. Anyway, it's an excellent kit, the fit is great unless you add too many details (I found that out during the build and it slowed me down) but, in the end, the kit fits together easily (typical of Tamiya), and it was a lot of fun. I used mostly GSI Mr. Hobby Colors for the build, along with Taiya paints, Alclad II lacquer, Vallejo acrylics, lots of Future, and even some blue food coloring . The tires and drop flaps were aftermarket resin, I added wiring in the cockpit and on the engine, and the seatbelts are the ones included in the kit, which are probably the weakest part of the model. Overall though, I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Thanks for looking!

    Spitfire MK.IIa

    "So what to build next?" I ask myself. After finishing the CT-155 in the colour me blue Group build I have been pondering what is next. Having followed the amazing work from Peter on the 1/18 Spitfire Mk. XIVe - Race #80 I found myself further inspired. My son of 11 has also proclaimed the Spitfire as the best aircraft ever but I don't have the heart to tell him it was the hurricane . Not that I want to start any fights on LSP either but the spitfire is a beautiful aircraft. So I picked up the 1/32 Revell Spitfire MK.IIa to hopefully build something respectable and that he can keep for himself. I have not settled on the whether to build it out of box or get some aftermarket. I will also need to poke around to see if there is a specific aircraft that I should be modelling it after. I will also be mining LSP to see what other great builds have been done and the areas I need to watch out for. Any comments and criticisms are definitely wanted as this helps me to improve my craft. I am also quite confident there are dozens of exerts on here that will keep me on the straight and narrow. Some initial shots of the box and AC parts. I also started to clean up and drill out the instrument panel and various other parts. Thanks for reading. Gord

    Franz Von Werra Bf-109 E-4

    This aircraft is built for the 1/32 Eduard kit straight out of the box, only personal addition is the map in the cockpit and a set of Air Masters canons. The Messerschmitt Bf 109E fighter of Franz von Werra, shot down over England, where he was taken prisoner in January 1941. Von Werra was sent with other German prisoners to Canada, where possibly he became the only German airman to make his escape from there, returning to Germany via the still neutral U.S.A. Von Werra was also a skilled fighter pilot, although his results weren’t anywhere near those of the Luftwaffe’s top guns. He most frequently flew as a wingman of Hauptmann Erich von Selle, the commanding officer of his unit. In this role, he scored four victories during the Battle of France – a Hurrricane, two Breguet 693s and a Morane MS.406. Despite this initial success, von Werra’s tally did not advance any further during June, July and larger part of August, despite the fact that operations against the RAF were being flown almost daily. Then suddenly, on 28 August, von Werra returned from a mission claiming 9 aircraft destroyed. According to his report, he first shot down a Spitfire during a general melée, then became detached from his unit, spotted three Hurricanes on a landing circuit and destroyed them one after another. Lastly, he zoomed low over the airfield, setting additional five Hurricanes on fire. Then came the day of 5 September, when von Werra was shot down. On that occasion, II./JG 3 was flying as an escort to a bombing raid on Croydon. On the return leg of the raid the bombers were attacked by a swarm of RAF fighters. Hauptmann Von Selle, leading the thirty escorting Messerschmitts, gave the order to attack. At the exact moment when Selle rolled his aircraft to starboard to initiate a dive, another gaggle of Spitfires jumped them from behind, their guns blazing. Von Selle’s aircraft avoided the bullets. His wingman, Franz von Werra, did not have such luck; a well-placed burst damaged the engine of his Bf 109 and knocked off his radio. Without engine power, the German pilot was unable to shake off the attacker, which followed him in a dive, squirting the Messerschmitt with a series of short bursts. Ultimately, von Werra had no choice but to make a crash-landing. This he did, putting down his aircraft wheels-up but otherwise intact on a field at Loves Farm, Marden, Kent. The identity of the victorious British pilot remains the subject of debate until this day. Some researchers claim that the pilot who was responsible for the shooting was F/Lt John Terence Webster of No. 31 Squadron. Others believe it to be a shared victory by P/O George Bennions of No. 41 Squadron and P/O Basil Gerald Stapleton of No. 603 Squadron. Yet others have attributed the same achievement to F/Lt Paterson Clarence Hughes, an ace of No. 234 Squadron with a victory tally of 14. Officially, the credit originally went to ‘Stapme’ Stapleton, but Hughes final DFC citation in the London Gazette of 22 October 1940 awarded him a half credit for the same (The spitfire site n.d.)

    Revell Bf-109 G-6 Early

    This is my reproduction of a Bf-109 G-6 Werknummer 160717, it was flown by Gruppenkommanduer of II/JG 51. Hptm Karl Rammelt. When his unit moved to Romania during the second half of 1943 the white fuselage band was painted over in a lighter version of RLM74. It was at Nisch in Romania when the wooden club was painted on to Hptm Karl Rammelt's aircraft by his ground crew. Not much I can really expand on the with the kit itself, but I built it straight out of the box expect for the seat harnesses. All comments welcome, oh and yes, the sun does come out in Scotland lololol
  7. Happy to announce hollow, 3D-printed Merlin engine exhausts, optimized to fit the new-tool Revell P-51D-5 kit, are now available. They can be adapted for other 1/32 scale Merlin-powered Mustang kits. The exhausts are left- and right-handed, feature nut detail, and are printed in "Frosted Extreme Detail" acrylic plastic by Shapeways. They sell for $7.36 USD per pair. Link: http://shpws.me/Q8P5 For the last four years, Model Monkey has been specializing in 3D-printed products for ship and armor modelers. This is the first design for aircraft modelers.

  8. 'Morning ladies and gents, lads and lassies, Let me give it to you, straight. The Mustang was never one of my favorites. Something to do with the snobbish side of me, never wanting to love a plane everybody loves to love. It's sooo uncool to like a pretty face, right? That is until some months ago, when stranded in a foreign land and estranged from my trusty desk and rusty tools, all that was left for me to do was some virtual modelling on the internet. That is when I read about a new Revell release associated in some way with Radu Brinzan. I knew the name and respected the modeller. I was intrigued and read on, the previews, the reviews, the WIPs ... and soon before long I was hooked. I wrote to my friend in Belgium to buy a kit for me and in anticipation, I myself ordered an Eduard interior set. Thus, months later upon my return to my trusty desk, I was ready to join the fray. For my subject, I chose Art Fiedler's HELEN, a P-51D-5 of the 325 GR in Italy 1944. Seen here in static simulation And in simulated video The main reason for this choice is an opportunity to airbrush the famous yellow-and-black checkers and the various markings using Frisket film. I know it shows my age but what the heck? Secondly, this particular machine is retro-fitted with the dorsal fin fillet DFF found on later versions of the P-51D. So it will give me the chance to try my hand at the controversial 'swayback' fillet as these field-installed mods were known. Just what I needed to spice up an all-too conventional build... or so I thought at that time 'Nuff said. The ride is about to begin, ladies and gentlemen, all aboard. Cheers, Quang
  9. Guys, I’m building the new Revell Mustang (like everyone 🤓) and am enjoying it so far until... ...a few days ago I lost the after-deck part to the carpet monster. I’ve sent Revell a request for a replacement but I don’t count too much on it. So I decided to replicate it in plasticard. Looks like it’s not too complicated to do. But then I need to understand what I’m trying to replicate, details like the part in silver and the engraved semi-circle ... Can you, Mustang experts inform me so that I could go on with my build? Thank you all Quang
  10. Hello! Finished my first piloted LSP build, a Caudron 714 in gaudy colours. Time to start a new build. Another prop with another odd paintjob. How about a North American Texan in the Heart of Darkness? Just one word: Biafra. A lot of darkness, indeed. And some small aircraft. Regards - dutik
  11. Hi, I now have a limited number of revised and improved 1/32 scale Norden Bombsight kits ready to sell online. The kit makes one 1/32 scale Norden Bombsight that can be built in a number of configurations appropriate for the HK B-17 E/F/G, HK B-25J and the forthcoming HobbyBoss B-24. Purchase at my website: www.robertmrozowski.com
  12. 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
  13. Hello modeller friends, FLY Models caused quite a stir when they released their 1/32 Hurricane in April 2016. By a general consensus on the modelling forums, it's the best Hurricane on the market: accurate shape, good dimensions, adequate surface detail and unbeatable bang for the buck, etc… One question remains: HOW DOES IT BUILD? Strangely there are but a very few WIP's (one on this very forum) on the internet for such a popular model. Furthermore they all stopped still after a few instalments. What happened? Is there a monster glitch out there waiting for the unwary modeller? I decided to find out and share my experience with you. Before starting up, let me tell you that I've never been interested in the Hurricane as a plane and that I've never built a Hurricane in all my modelling years. That is before a friend showed me the FLY kit he just bought . I was unexplainably drawn to the box and before long I was cutting up the sprues, dry-fitting the parts … and buying the kit back from my friend. So let the build begins. First, the box with the 'meh' painting... … and the all-important documentation, excellent references I got from another friend. Most of it sadly OOP: Next episode: Dry-fitting the parts Until then, Cheers, Quang
  14. Since a topic appeared on the Trumpeter Ju87D, I'm curious about the two subject kits and I thought I'd start my own topic rather than subject that topic to scope creep. Just for my own knowledge, how does the Trumpeter Ju87D stack up to the Hasegawa Ju87D (or vice versa); the latter being somewhat difficult to acquire and expensive if found. For that matter, how do the kits fall short? I know there's no such thing as the perfect model but since I have very little knowledge of the Stuka, I'd be interested to know the pros and cons of both kits. For the sake of arguments, lets keep personal opinions out as much as humanly possible.... This is NOT, repeat NOT a manufacturer/kit bashing thread. If it turns that way, I'll ask the offending replies to be deleted and if they continue, the thread to be locked, depriving myself and the community of what I think would be beneficial information. I'm only interested in comparing and contrasting the two kits against each other and to the original article. If claims can't be backed up by credible evidence (no hearsay), I'd rather it not be brought into the discussion. I'd really like to avoid the distasteful, caustic and thread-locking replies and will ask that any such replies be deleted by the moderators (As we all know, they have the final say on the disposition on any reply). Accuracy, fidelity of details, overall fit, etc. are all good topics. Disagreement is to be expected but if it's not presented with respect, I'll also ask that it be deleted (again, if the moderators have not already acted). If there is merit in the reply, I may (again, through and at moderator discretion) ask that the author edit the post and remove the offending text and allow the rest to remain. In the end, I want the best available information distilled from the community that I can get should I decide to purchase a Ju87D kit. I have but one or two references on the 87 and they're very basic at best. I've come close to buying the Hasegawa kit a couple of times but begged off at the last second. Maybe it was for a reason? Let's hear what the you all have to say....
  15. 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
  16. Since Gaz asked me to add photos of my P-40F, as I was searching my "man-cave", I ran across this build I did a while back: [ [ The kit's pilot was not good as good as a 1/48 scale figure in a Monogram Mustang. But at the time I did this one the very nice AM cockpit and harness detail sets weren't available. [ Once again, since I had no airbrush at the time, it was painted with Testors enamels and MM acrylics, hand bristle brushed.

    Revell 1/32 Grumman F3F-3

    Hello Forum, "within the build is before the built" I read some in the world wide web - I think somewhere aftmost left. .Some minutes before I was able to lay my hand on this beauty - also I payed much too much for her* burt I will plan much more that i jumped in with the Camel F.1. So this'll be at the very beginning a research thread swinging to a building an asking for help thread later on. Here the technical drawing for those who are interested in such stuff: And there is certainly a question of the colour sheme - I love this "British Post Red" as I remember it from my London trip once up on a time called it. Is this the "right" red - or is it too dark? Now to my questions - and as a newby I've got a lot of this I can't figure out when these coloursheme was used - okay before 1940 (then I found pictures in the pacific darkblue and sky light grey pattern). a) Is it right when I'll call her "1445" after her number on the tail? Or is the hull's side number "5-F-1" crucial? The coloursheme of the Revell kit semms to be the same as her's and the squadron symbol might be the same. What is the right Squadron my beauty belongs to? Was theirtimes there a sqaudron-colour or was it a a carrier-colour? c) If I say - okay red is nice but I want to bring the VB-2 "Big bad Wolf" on here hull - what do I have to do at the markings and to her colouring? I just learnd by http://wp.scn.ru that this was a Bomber Squadron not a VF for Fighter one So there apearce onn the far horizon the question if there might be a biplane Helldiver Curtiss SBC 1/32 kit... ...or if not - is it possible to built the SB2C back to a biplane? Could I take the measurements from the 1/72 Heller or the Matchbox kit? Thanks for your intrest and patience with a questioning greenhorn in here! ____________________________ *but with kits it seems to be like with kids and women you falt in love to...
  20. Well, after seven months of work, Tamy's 32nd scale Birdcage Corsair is finally done! There's been a lot of praise over this kit and I can only echo everyone's words! What a lovely kit overall! For the general painting, I used a mix of acrylic colours from Mig Ammo, AK Interactive, Vallejo and Hataka as well as Aclad for the engine. The camo was done with colours from Hataka's Late US Navy paint set and weathering was achieved with oils from the Mig Ammo oilbrusher set and pigments. The model will be placed in a small vignette but that will be done a bit later in the future! Again, I thoroughly enjoyed this model from start to finish not just because of it's excellent engineering but also because it was a project I feel tested and pushed my skills to a higher level! A big thank you to all of you for your continuous encouragement but most important for sharing your feedback and suggestions with me at every stage of the build! I dedicate this model to my lovely fiancee who bought this kit for me as a birthday present and who has been so supportive of my hobby!

    Tamiya 1/32 F4U-1 Corsair Birdcage

    Hello guys! Having finished the F-104 I've now moved on to Tamiya's 1/32 kit of the F4U-1 Corsair Birdcage. This is my first WW2 bird after a veeeery long time. The kit is also very special for me as it is my fiancee's first ever model kit present to me (more came later)! I'll be building it almost straight out of the box with just the addition of Eduard's fabric seatbelts, Barracuda's resin wheels and Eagle Cal decals. I started with the cockpit and was impressed at the number of subassemblies that were required to complete it and how everything went together perfectly! The fabric seatbelts were a pain to put together but I'm pleased with the end result and may use again in future builds! The cockpit was airbrushed with interior green and all raised details were highlighted with the same colour lightened with white. Smaller details were brushpainted their own specific colours. For the tail wheel area I made my own mixture from brown, red, white and yellow. Chipping was done with a small piece of sponge dipped in aluminium. The green I used may be a bit controversial although I've seen examples of built models and all had the same colour. Anyway, I'm content with this one! More to come later!

    1/32 Special Hobby Yak-3

    This kit is a tough build (typical limited run) but if you want a LSP Yak, well, this is your only choice. Places to watch out for are the wheel bays, canopy, forward upper engine cowl, and the wing/fuselage attachment (none of them fit!). I was originally going to do a ton of weathering on this, but after all the fit problems, massive putty, and sanding, I pretty much lost interest and just wanted to finish the darn thing. Painted with MRP (aka Mr Paint), which is exceptional paint, AMT-7, 11, & 12. Done OOB with kit decals.
  23. I waited for the Roden 1/32 O-1 Bird Dog with much anticipation. When it finally arrived, I wasn't disappointed: a simple, no-nonsense, accurate, well-moulded kit albeit a little scarce in interior details. This latter point didn't bother me a bit because I like to detail cockpits and interiors. IMO the one thing the kit lacks is an M-16/ AR-15 assault rifle which is closely associated with the Bird Dog and the FAC missions it was renowned for in the Vietnam conflict. The O-1 is a little bare without it. The problem is that M-16's can be easily found in armor modelling in 1/35 but none in 1/32. So what to do? Build one from scratch. This is how I did it. The reference is a profile view taken from the internet et reduced to 1/32 scale. The material: plasticard and brass wire. The pictures say it all. In situ Hope you like it. Cheers, Quang
  24. Hi there! With the Texan coming to an end I had no idea what to build next So I opened just the big blue box that has been looking over my shoulder during modelling for some years. Look, there is an Uhu inside The well known Revell kit with some goodies It has to be a quick build, so I kept the AM parts to the bare minimum. Precut masks. The mandatory correction parts for the radiator outlet. Also resin seats to overcome the issues of the kit seats. Added PE for the wheel wells because the wheel wells are large, wide open and very empty. The bird will sit on a high shelf when finished... SAC UC? We shall see. Revell has the build broken into some independent subassemblies. While still painting the cockpit interior you may build up the wings, engine nacelles and wheel wells. Two each. Also rudders and elevators. Just beware that some parts have to be glued around some kind of hinges so check this before This will become the A-2 from the kit, 1./NJG-1, with the black undersides. Regards - dutik
  25. Hi everyone. After chatting to Jennings and seeing he had interest in Wessex decals, I've had a thought about doing a set of Wessex 5 and 2 stencil decals. Seeing as the three main colours would be White (for pre 82 High Viz Wessex 5's) Black (for post 82 Low Viz and RAF Yellow Mk 2's) and Yellow for the HF antenna, B for the Beacon location and possibly for the yellow circle Exhaust warnings. See Jennings set here... http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=59683&hl=%2Bfly+%2Bwessex Would anyone be interested in this sort of thing? I'd even consider doing a joint 1/32 and 1/48 set if space permitted on the sheet? Your reaction is greatly received. Do you thin a need is there, what else would you want on this sort of set? Cheers The Woo.
