    a very old kit but i like this : [/URL
  3. With my small scale 109 99% finished and my group build entry a little stalled (waiting for a 3D printed part) I'm ready to start something new. I picked Hasegawa's Bf 109F, which was my second LSP kit ever bought ca.7 years ago, from my stash. Here's the project inventory: So what's the plan? I'm not going to build the 1000000th Marseille 109 but a quite interesting alternative: Red 2 from 8./JG 27 which has some really heavy mottling on the fuselage and wings. There's some pictures of the original and some profiles (not sure about copyright, so link only). Eagle Cals suggest a usual RLM74/75/76 scheme overpainted with RLM79 on the upperside and followed by heavy mottling with RLM80. Not your usual 109 Trop for sure! I've collected some aftermarket stuff for this build: - MG17 tips from Master - the MG FF barrels will be used on my 109E build. - Brassin exhausts, I hope they'll fit since they're meant for the Revell 109G-6 - CMK wheels, cheap (~4€) and a slight improvent over the kit parts - Aires cockpit, at first I wanted to go for scratch building the cockpit details but then there was one post in the LSP discussion indicating that this Aires set is one of the rare examples of good fit. I'll see.... That's the whole plan for now, building might start at the end of the week. So long Joachim

    Kit Bash Stinger

    Every year the IPMS FAME CITIES Ed Kinney Chapter sponsors a contest theme for – ‘Anything USMC ‘- in memory of Ed Kinney. This year I'm determined to have an entry. With the parts from spares and the Academy kit supplied by red dog and Dragon plus a detailed review of The Designers page I think I'm ready to turn Hasegawa's prototype F-18 into a Desert Storm F/A-18A! I picked up an Avionix cockpit and tail modification kit, got some stainless screens from AMUR.Reaver, now I just have to decide which Flying Leathernecks decal sheet to buy. I've got to have it ready for the September meeting. I've spent the last couple weeks pouring over Pete's Scale Hornet guide so I'm totally psyched. This will also be my first big effort at weathering so please feel free to throw out any guidance as we build this one together 😆

    Focke Factory II

    Hi Guys, Last year I posted Focke Factory in this forum where I built four of Hasagawa's Fw-190D9 models at the same time. Now I've looked around to see there are SIX more D kits hanging around, with a few bits that have disappeared. So I thought "why not?" and here we are with Focke Factory II. When I built the original engine inserts I actual made seven, all painted ready to go, so that's only three more to build and paint. And I bought another Jerry Rutman D-13 conversion, this one will get chopped back to a D11. It's essentially the same as the D13 but omits the nose cannon and adds two MK108 cannons just outboard of the undercarriage legs. One D9 will have a broad chord Big Tail, the one that was going to fit late D series and all of the Ta-152 series. There were only two documented Big Tail D9s so this time I'm going for the one that hasn't got much documentary evidence, having already built the well known one! The engine inserts ready to paint. Note three completed ones at the top, left over from the original builds. The first mini bulkhead in place. Only another 11 to cut and fit. Kit seat on the right, all thick and nasty! Thinned down one on the left. The seat itself is sheet metal, not armoured. Armour was fitted to the bulkheads. Mass production of tailplanes. Turn on the TV and just do it! Building tails. Two of the Big Tails on the left will eventually work their way onto a coupe of PCM Ta-152C kits. It's a start! Regards, Bruce Crosby

    F-86F Hasegawa 1/32

    I've used the Hasegawa 1/32 Canadair Sabre Mk.6 kit to build this F-86F on the beginning of Dec 2018. I was interested in exploring the visual expression of Natural Metal Finishing type of aircraft. I've used the Alcled II lacquers for the painting. With the limited colors and experience I have, this is best I can do at that time. F-86F Sabre 40, Hasegawa 1972 kits, rebox on 2005, 1/32 with raised panel lines.
  7. With my entry in the Multi engine group build being full of etch addition, I just knew that I would need a distraction without all the trouble, so I went to the stash to pull out a trouble free build. This one caught my eye Ok opening the box I found it wasn't completely OOB, but somehow I like to do PE flaps. The weels should be no problem I will be doing it in the colours of Walter Nowotny - second from the bottom. Classic - I always liked that scheme

    RAN A4G

    Hi All - I,m a newbie on LSP and thought I would post up my restoration of an old Hasegawa 1/32 Skyhawk kit that was gradually losing bits and succumbing to damage sitting on a shelf. I actually have a current post for the WIP on Britmodeller and have only recently discovered some Skyhawk models on LSP by GDW and Anthony in NZ that got my admiration - as it is a 1/32 model I thought I would post the WIP here as well. The link to the Britmodeller WIP is here - https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235027738-ran-a4g-skyhawk/ The photos below show where the restoration is up to as of this morning. This is a shot of where she will sit in the display case next to my Fisher Sea Fury - might even be able to squeeze a 1/32 Sea Venom with folded wings in there too one day & maybe the Fisher Firefly! regards CJP

    Fieseler Fi156 Storch

    Hi all, before starting with my Multi Engine GB I figured I would build another simple kit first. Looking through my stash my eye fell on the Fi156 Storch from Hasegawa. It's a pretty simple aircraft and well up for it's task in the day. It's VSTOL capability made for an excellent liason, recon, ambulance aircraft. So out it came from the stash. As it's a pretty old kit (1978 according to scalemates) it lacks some detail, mainly in the cockpit area. So I acquired all the AM for it (which isn't a lot), to get it up to date. Eduard PE set, HGW seatbelts, Master Model gun barrels and a Yahu cockpit. Nothing to complicated, but the end result should be much better than an out of the box build. So far I've build and painted the little Argus AS10 and started adding the PE to the cockpit. Till next update. Wouter

    F/A-18A Desert Storm

    This build was for our local clubs Marine tribute in honor of past club President, avid modeler, and Marine Ed Kinney. I wanted to do a Desert Storm Hornet from the Hasegawa F-18 kit I had. Going through all the options I decided on a stinger from VMFA-451 because it received a purple heart for damage incurred from a SAM missile to the sidewinder station. The Warlords frlew out of Shaikh Isa AB in Bahrain. The Warlords were also the first Marine unit to attack Iraqi locations in Desert Storm so there was alot of history here to model. This has been my most involved build, which ended up taking 6 months to complete (although there were a few family interruptions and that leaking 2nd floor bathroom lol but that's another "remodeling" story). Forward dating the model, which was essentially the prototype AC, was a chore helped along by 3 great LSP'ers. A big round of applause to RedDog, Dragon & Dandiego who donated parts from their stash, the Academy kit(a special note, that's RedDog's belly tank you see), and some aftermarket resin! To this I added the Avionix cockpit and tail resin F/A-18A conversion set, AMR Reaver screens and vents, Flying Leathernecks decals, TwoBobs ordnance decals, a Navy pilot from my stash plus alot of scratch building. My logic on weathering was that since this stinger was in action my first time weathering efforts would be ok if they were a little on the heavy side. I learned as I went along, practicing on the Haz parts I didn't use before doing the real thing. I used The Scale Hornet by Jake Melampy for reference. My WIP page has all the details on scratch buildings and techniques used to complete the project. Check it out! Let's start with some main profile shots and then I can add some details in second post (Note the flap and tail position are set for the takeoff orientation I use on the stand).
  11. Hi guys. I have a friend who wants to build an A8 but only has the A5 boxing. There are some pretty clear differences such as gun cowel and some hatches but are there any other less obvious changes that need to be made. Any info will be greatly appreciated. Cheers Bevan

    Speed build: Hasegawa P-40E

    Good day, gents. A little while ago, I decided to participate in the Multi-Engine Group Build. Since my entrant will be the HKM B-17E built to be the Swamp Ghost, I need to clear the bench to make room for the big, four-engine beast. So, I knocked out the Trumpeter F4F-4 last weekend and plan to have the Hasegawa Ki-84 Frank done by this weekend. Being on a major early Pacific war kick right now and, being something of a glutton for punishment, I have decided to tackle the Hasegawa P-40E before the end of the year. Thus, this WIP thread, the speed-build of the Hasegawa P-40E. Here's to hoping I can get it out the door by 12/31/18 because I fully intend to start the group build B-17 thread on 1/1/19. That said, I made some good progress this weekend. The cockpit is done and, if I get any time at the bench tonight, I should be able to close up the fuse halves. The cockpit of the P-40 is complete. Painted with a hodgepodge of Tamiya, Alclad, and Vallejo Model Colors. The interior green is a custom mix of Tamiya paints that I came up with. I believe it is 1:1 flat yellow and flat green. The only aftermarket item here is the seatbelt harness. The shoulder harness is from an Eduard kit in the spares box. The lap belts are Tamiya tape cut to length and painted. The buckles come from the same Eduard set as the shoulder harness. I realize it may not be perfectly historically accurate, but I figure it's close enough. Everything else is straight from the kit. Chipping was accomplished by using Micro Mask as an undercoat before painting base colors. Parts were weathered with oils and Tamiya black panel liner. The seat was washed with Tamiya's brown panel liner. I used a drop of Future on the two gauges to give them a glass lens appearance after picking out the dial face with a silver Prismacolor pencil. The hard-to-see hydraulic fluid leak on the emergency hand pump lever is Abteilun 501 Engine Grease oil paint. The pilots left-side panel. Chipped with a silver Prismacolor pencil and weathered with oils and Tamiya panel liner washes. Pilot's right side panel. Chipped with a silver Prismacolor pencil and weathered with oils and Tamiya panel liner washes. The instrument panel, all straight from the kit and hand painted as I've never had much luck overlaying decals on raised details. The dial faces were picked out with a silver Prismacolor pencil while the rest was painted with various Vallejo paints. The glass effect was achieved with a drop of Future into the molding for each dial. All in all, pretty happy with the final results.
  13. Please enjoy my completed Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate (キ84 疾風 Gale). I happen to love the late was Japanese aircraft and the chipped paint they carried on their aircraft. I use "rattle can" buffing aluminum as an undercoat and I use tape, steel wool and toothpicks to get the desired look. enjoy! This is an OOB build. I used a tiny bead I got from Michael's for the insulator on the antennae, which is ez-line. The cockpit is OOB.

    By George!

    Hi Guys, A straight 18 day build with time off for Telford. A simply lovely kit that's well engineered and goes together with hardly any filler at all. Hope you like it. Regards, Bruce Crosby

    By George!

    Hi Guys, After building a WNW Junkers D.1 and a WWI resin Daimler Marienfelde truck for Aviattic, I needed some modelling me for me. The first thing that shouted out to me was the Hasegawa N1K2 George kit so just before the Telford Show I opened the box and started cutting plastic. Box Art: Test fit of the wings: Test fit of the fuselage halves: Cockpit parts painted and odds and ends of the Eduard etch set added: Regards, Bruce Crosby
  16. Hi Guy's this is my latest project - Well almost ready for inspection... Finally I got around to do some work on this one, restarted 3-4 years ago trying to bring this old kit up to some speed. It's another one of those old kits tucked away in an cardbox in the attic from 40 years ago... Hasegawa's 1/32 Messerschmitt Me 262A1-a Werknummer 111711 by Messerschmitt AG test pilot Hans Fay. I wanted to do one of the Me 262's without no paint job, trying not to get the aluminum to get too 'shiny' The photos of the original, shows a very worn, puttied surface that I tried to replicate my way. Painting: Alclad aluminium, sanded back and some very matt putty mixed from primer paint. RLM 76 in some places. Some extra detailing was done to show one of the engines, the MG and radio compartment. Aires cockpit and Eduard PE. Tell me what you think, I'm thinking of adding even some more putty??

    Big Tail Butcher Bird

    Hi Guys, Here we go again with another of 2017's Focke Factory build. This time it's Black 6 which was built with a Ta-152 style tail, which was due to be fitted to the 190 and 152 as a universal tail. It's Hasegawa's lovely kit with the usual mods from me: QuickBoost exhausts and guns and control column, HGW seatbelts, Yahu IP, Henri Daehne prop, E-Z Line aerial lead, added brake lines from plastic rod and lead wire, home made brass pitot tube, some TLC. The aircraft had minor changes prior to capture, the stbd aileron was a different colour.

    Captured Butcher Bird

    Hi Guys, Another model from last year's Focke Factory. This time it's a captured D9, partially rebuild by the Russians and repainted with Soviet stars. The original German markings were obliterated with possibly grey paint, you can never tell with old stuff like this. My prime reference was Captured Butcher Birds and the decals are from Eagle Cals. Interior is painted with various Gunze, Tamiya and Vallejo paints, the exterior is all MMP. Detail changes include: QuickBoost guns, exhausts and control column, E-Z Line for the aerial, home made pitot tube from brass tubing, Yahu IP, thinned down seat, HGW seatbelts, brake lines from plastic rod and lead wire, Henri Daehne prop, added cooling flap actuator rods. Probably a few more things but can't remember! Regards, Bruce Crosby
  19. Here's my entry, first in progress work and GB on here so go easy please. Hobbyboss as the main kit and canopy and filter from Hasegawa Selection of decals and masks (kit was second hand and decals missing from box) AM And reference And finally the aircraft
  20. I bought this kit few years ago, before Eduard made their Limited Edition P-47 set, but i lost my appetite for this big fish . Now i have new airbrush from Gunze so it was a good time to check how it works. I used these additions for P-47: - Eduard resin wheels, - interior PE set, - RB model gun barrels, - Montex masks/decals
  21. Hi, Dora is finished, not as pleasant kit as I expected, but still decent piece of plastic. Side inscription means: "Sell my clothes I'm going to heaven!". List of modifications: - pilot seat - added seatbelts and Yahu IP - modified gunsight - Quickboost exhausts - Eduard Bronze legs from Revell F-8 - gun barrels / pitot tube / bottom antenna from syringe needles - pilot motto - shortened tail wheel - wings crosses from Montex Masks WIP: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=74576
  22. OK, this predates Maverick and Goose by a few years. The original aircraft was lost in 1984, and the decals portray the aircraft as it was in 1977. The intention is to build "white 40" in three shades of blue from the Hasegawa kit I dug out of the loft. It has been started, but not by much: The wings are glued to the fuselage, the nose panels for the gun stuck in place, some Milliput to cover ejector pin marks, so less than 25% I'd say. Planning to use the Black Box cockpit and a pilot and mount it in flight, trying to wax some Tomcat crew's tail. The mouldings are sharp and the canopy very clear, so the resin cockpit will be an improvement here. Jens

    fw190 A-8 Sweden 1945

    Calling this one done. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the build. Learnt some new techniques including my first rivet job and also learnt hairspray and masking tape don't mix no matter how long its been on! 1/32 Hasegawa FW190 A-8 Aaron
  24. So this is my next build on the bench 30.04.45 - FW 190 A-8 W.Nr 739 136 'White 15 + -' of II.(Sturm.)/J.G. 4 'White 15 + -' took off from Parchim, north-west of Berlin, piloted by another Estonian, Oblt. Anatol Rebane. This FW 190 was scrapped in Sweden in 1946. Anatol Rebane lived in the West after the war, and after leaving the United States in 2002, now lives in Estonia again. Found Claes Sundin's profile on his website and fell in love with the late war appearance. Then found several images of the plane which are perfect for an accurate build (hopefully)! Hasegawa kit for the build Eduard PE for the pit And started on it, whilst the paint dries on the Kolibri
  25. 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.
