  1. Inspired by Thunnus amazing 109G-6/AS build earlier this year I've taken a deep breath and started my first advanced conversion build. First cuts and all fits spot on. Reaver prop to go with the conversion = perfect match! Added the Aries radio set for the open hatch at the rear. Designed for the Hasegawa kit it fitted without issue. Cut out the hatch and replaced with the pe. Thin
  2. After the pink panther I found this bird in the same book This set a flame to model it as the image is in colour and I have done a PRU blue bird yet. Having secured 2 more Revell IXc boxings I pulled one out and set about working out the best way forward. I then turned to our forums for more inspiration and help and discovered this thread and comments. Has anyone tried the Alleycat Spitfire PR.XI conversion?? So now
  3. Hi everyone, Having eventually completed the F-4E, the desire to actually assemble a model rather than admire the contents has returned. The subject of the next labour of love is the old Revell F-15 which I am going to attempt to construct as its 'B' version. I'm not sure why I've gone for another Revell kit other than they are relatively cheap in comparison to the alternatives and this one is nearer to a B than converting say the Tamiya E (I also have some spare parts for this kit if I screw something up!). That said I will inevitably blow this reasoning out of the water by buying more a
  4. Hi all I am new to this Forum and I hope you don't mind e posting this , but I have a model I have just finished last week. I have been building the model initially for a group build but in true form I did not finish in time !!! I have enjoyed the kit very much and was provided much encouragement, support and references by Max known on here as @mozart, so I would like to say a big thank you Max, your help and support was very much appreciated. The kit is the Revell venerable Matchbox Tiggie and I picked it up second hand for just a fiver at my then local model s
  5. Well, since Duchess Arlene is getting close to wrapping up, time to start a new build! This time found a completely NON-NMF Mustang in one of the kit's marking options: Capt Hershel Pascoe's Desert Rat. Can't really remember if I've ever done a 'D' model that didn't have some NMF on it so this will be fun. Looking forward to working on faded finishes. Notice in BOTH of the pictures below how glossy the wing is. In both pictures you can see the reflections from the fuselage markings. Something to keep in mind for the finish... Also have collected a rather insan
  6. I have the Revell Bf 109G-10 Erla in 1/32 that I am getting ready to start. I got some extra stuff with it as a package deal which includes the A.M.U.R. Reaver Bf 109G-10 Erla Correction Set. My question is this: Did all G-10 Erlas have the bulged profile that the correction set portrays? Or, just certain ones? The correction set looks to be a really nice bit of kit, but I am not sure I want to tackle something that complex just yet. I have seen this set installed and it looks great, but then I also see quite a few of the Revell kits built as is without the correction and not much is
  7. As part of some upcoming large scale, 3D-printed aircraft cockpit upgrade designs, very happy to announce a model of the World War Two-era "Set, Complete Radio 522-A" ("SCR-522-A") used by the US Army Air Corps, Royal Air Force and Royal Australian Air Force. In RAF and RAAF service, this radio set was known as the TR.5043. This model is available in 1/32 and 1/24 scales. Other scales are possible. Often referred to as a "Signal Corps Radio", the SCR-522-A was installed aboard many aircraft types. For example, the SCR-522-A was a conspicuous feature of the P-51D and P-51K Mustang fighter
  8. Hi all, I took my sweet time, but finally finished another build. This time the Revell Me262B-1 nightfighter. I wanted to do another wheels up build. Luckily I had some pilots from my ZM He219 lying around waiting to get in the air. So I did a pretty quick build of the cockpit because not much will be seen with the pilots in them and the canopy closed. All in all it was a pretty tight fit. The rest of the build is pretty straightforward although I had some trouble closing up the gundeck. There are some pretty large gaps and steps to be filled and sanded. The same with engine covers
  9. Hi all! One reason why my Corsair build has slowed down is that I have taken part in a Facebook group build. The subject is the world famous F-4 Phantom II. For my build I decided to use Revell's 1/32 F-4F kit to depict a worn out Greek F-4E SRA with I will also be using the following aftermarket detail sets: Legend's resin F-4E cockpit Real Model's resin slatted stabilizers GT Resin's exhausts DEF Model's resin wheels and FOD covers Eduard's placards Airscale's dataplates and instruments
  10. I've been working on this on and off for the last few months and have finished it off this week. I've used the classic Revell 1/48th B-17F kit and coupled it with Koster's vacformed beautiful early Fortress conversion set. This comprises a new rear fuselage with the distinctive 'shark fin', a new early nose and cockpit transparency as well as other various vacformed clear parts, along with some additional air intakes for the early oil cooler set up - all in all a very comprehensive conversion set. You have to undertake other mods to the Revell kit such as shortening the nose (the
  11. So, we are still on quarantine here in Manila, Philippines, so I decided to start a build. I have the OLD revell harrier GR1, and I have had this kit for almost 10 years in my stash, along with a resin nose conversion to a GR3. I totally forgot the one who made this, but I want to give a shout of thanks! Anyways, here we go. The resin nose fits perfect, and provides that characteristic look of the snoopy nosed harrier. Generally the Revell harrier is correct in "outline", but requires corrections and added details. Foremost is the exhaust blister fairin
  12. another kit finished this afternoon :
  13. Hi everyone, coming soon a small and inexpensive way to decals 1/32 Fw 190 A/F/D oleo legs with the markings not included in the Hasegawa or Revell kits. The sheet also contains one 'off-topic item' - a manufacturers plate for the control stick. There are two complete sets of markings plus some alternative markings. Thanks for looking
  14. Hello guys I finished another Messerchmit BF 109...what else This is 109 Nr. 13 in my collection and its a Revell kit with mix of Eagle Calls and Hasegawa decals. Unfortunaly I had problem with EC decals, both number 7 decals along with two fuselage crosses just disengrated when put in the water. Luckily for me had Hasegawa boxing with same markings so I used those . That's why there is a slight difference in decal color. As for the model itself this is my third Revell Bf 109G-6 finished along with one G-10 and I really starting to hate that landing gear and prop assembl
  15. Well I hope you are all well. I have been ill and not going to post office for a few more weeks so not taking orders but want to share with you a number of products that are available and can be shipped once I am feeling better. 32P021 Gloster Gladiator Export parts for Norwegian and Swedish J8 /J8a £12.00 Coming soon - 32F002 Hans-Joachim Marseille £TBC 1/32 Ju 88 A-1(F), A-5(F) and D-2 rear bomb bay camera fairings Thanks for looking and stay safe. As we modellers are all used to social distancing and wearing masks and latex gloves everything should be business as usual!
  16. Here is the next build coming onto the bench. This kit means alot to me i purchased this kit the day my youngest daughter was born some 3 years ago so that i could built it with the UK scheme with the HUGE heart on the belly. This is also a reminder of how time flies by so fast! The Kit : Revell Revell BAe Hawk T.1A Markins : XtraDecals XX245 or XX307 208(R) Squadron, 4TFS RAF Valley, 2009 Display aircraft I started unpacking the kit yesterday and glued some of the cockpit teaching my oldest daughter how to cut parts off the sprues. I was hoping to ge
  17. Hello All, As promised, here are the first instalments of my own thoughts on the new Revell 1/32 Spitfire IIa kit. Following in the sure footsteps of Iain Ogilvie and Jenn Wright, this will be very much my own opinion of the kit as I wanted to personally find out for myself what all of the fuss was about and was therefore determined to buy a kit ASAP in order to do this review. Apart from giving the kit a 'once over', the other reason for this assessment and review was to do something that all of the members here have been asking - tell them if there are any anomalies, and more importa
  18. Hi Guys, Back with another project that's going ahead at a cracking pace. I was at the Essex Model Show a few weeks ago and saw a Dragon 1/48 Mistel 6 on the shelf of one of the traders. So out with the fivers and I'm now the proud new owner. The week after was the Avon Show and I was on our club stand (Wiltshire Scale Modellers) and met up with Wunwinglow who took the kit with the intention of scaling up some of the parts and making them in 3D. Also got my hands on the new Revell Me-262A single seater courtesy of Andy Hills at Antics Models, another club member. I had already
  19. Old build I did at the beginning of 2019.
  20. I've just cleared the bench of a completed build, treated myself to new self healing mats, deep cleansed all my tools, brushes, airbrushes, etc. Excitedly grabbed that next box from the pile which happens to be the old Revell AH-64 Apache. Start to empty sprue bags and check out the Flightpath photoetch set. All is good until I get to the clear sprue. Yes you guessed it, its carnage in there. Bits all over the place, and THIS. https://flic.kr/p/2icFqR6 Has anyone any suggestions other than pack it away and look for another kit on eBay going cheap?
  21. Hello, while I wait to get back home to keep building my Ju 87G, I'll be posting photos of my Do 335 from Revell/Monogram. The kit is actually 45 years old, but it still holds up well when compared to its Tamiya counterpart.
  22. Here it is http://www.ipmsdeutschland.de/FirstLook/Hersteller_News/Revell_News_2020.html There are no completely new tool aircraft except for a snap-together F-18, though I suppose the 1/32 F-18F will be as welcome as it was inevitable. There are some welcome reissues and reboxes of kits from other manufacturers, notably the Special Hobby 1/32 Tempest and the Dragon 1/48 Ju 188A-1.
  23. New build had some fun getting the covers to fit. Lots of messing around and trimming etc. Ordered some pe rudder pedals, extra instrument panel and resin control stick for back seat area. Have a nice selection of images of this plane in various states of decay/scrap/souvenirs so need to decide what level to work to. May well make a little dio.
  24. New little sideline project whilst waiting for paint to dry/things to arrive on the Liberator. Spent the afternoon assembling the railway gondola to check the He162 fitted!
