  1. Hi everyone, available soon is my replacement upper cowl part with much flatter top and wider gun-troughs. You would not believe how much doing these two adjustments tricks the eye into thinking the whole engine cowl is much wider! This is what you could call a cost-effective compromise correction haha! £TBC

    Building a Revell P-51D

    So after lurking for so long, and with certain responsibilities being met, I decided to start a build. It's been a long time since I last built a kit (4 years ago?!?!). I got the new revell kit, and started cracking on it. I'm not sure for markings yet, but I'm leaning on Lt Donald Emerson's P-51D. So anyways, here's photos of the build.

    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

    Yes, another Mustang

    Hi Guys, I'm supposed to be building six FW-190D models but I got myself into a bit of a challenge with other modellers who are building the Jerry Rutman P-51B resin kit. Now I've already built the Revell D and rebuilt the Trumpeter B (as a C) and fancied another build but can't find the JR resin for love nor money and certainly didn't feel like another Trumpeter kit. So I decided to do a conversion of two Revell kits, the newer D with the spine of the old (read: ancient!) B. Here's how the fuselages line up. Not bad. Here's my proposed changes to the wings, new panel lines and shorter ammo boxes. Not exact yet, just fibre penned to guestimate what I need to do to it. Where to cut the old B fuselage. The B fuselage parts cut out and the marked up chop on the D Well, can't stop now else that's two kits ruined! All taped up to cement the spines to the fuselage halves. And what I've got at the moment. As you can see, it's a start but there is lots and lots of graft and elbow grease needed still. Regards, Bruce Crosby
  5. Hello ModelMakers, Here is a kit that i did 2 years ago. Revell 1/32 Panavia Tornado, OOB, paint is Gunze I hope you guys like it
  6. 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!

    P 51 D REVELL

    hello all , my last kit , another mustang .... (sorry ) : voila voila
  8. Ok, I'm taking a quick break form the B-25s since they're not done and the Iron Rain GB ended. Don't worry, I'll get back and finish them. So in their place, I thought I'd do a simpler build. I looked at the Hobby Boss Spitfire kit but it seems to need a bit of work. Reading up on the recent Spitfire II kit, many noted it was much closer to being a V so I thought that it would be a nice starting point. Especially since it was already in my stash With the box contents dumped out. Ignore the McLaren parts that you might see. Thanks to the wonderfully useless side opening boxes, I'm in for the haul now as there is no putting it away. So in that note, here's the cockpit bits starting to come together. I'm going to swipe some leftover Tamiya bits to detail the cockpit but don't plan to get too crazy. As for scheme and markings, it'll be the middle stone over azure blue for camo. I haven't made a final decision beyond that though. Carl
  9. 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.

    Revell Ju88A-4 TECHNIK

    Just received this from Lucky Model. http://www.luckymodel.com/scale.aspx?item_no=RE 00452 Looks like the Ju88A-4 is being reboxed with motors and lights as their TECHNIK series. Assumption it's Revell Germany.
  11. Hi everyone, Here's my quickest built I ever did a few years back, took me 5 weeks, almost OOB except for the True detail pit. A very affordable hasslefree kit , hope you like. Dan. More to come... Dan.
  12. Well I managed to find myself a Revell 109G at half price during the swap and sell over the weekend, but unfortunately I was unable to find any decals, so the exact aircraft is still to be decided, but the Revell kit looks pretty nice. I may do a JG 300 Wilde Sau aircraft, or if I can find them, the Finnish used the G-6 as a night fighter post war.
  13. This is my second Revell SPAD XIII - its cheap, but oh man the flash, flash, flash.... What was I thinking? But really wanted to do Eddie's aircraft so off we go. Using Tamiya tape to create the masks for the camo pattern: Taking full advantage of 'white-basing' to create a faded effect to the paint on the aircraft. There are lots of different pictures, and drawings, of this aircraft but I liked the ones I've seen that seem to indicate a metallic front end to the aircraft so this is gun metal with PE engine vents. Thought about using the 'printed wood' paper from the craft store but the raised dials on the IP made that just too difficult to take on at this point. My first attempt at masking tape seat belts. The seat was painted in wood to start, then over sprayed with copper (yeah, copper!), then hit with a clear flat coat. Black wash applied randomly with a brush, then dry brush with burnt umber, finally a little bit of lightened brown for some highlights. Looks better NOT close-up. That's my story anyway... Tomorrow looking to lay down the light green, and maybe the dark green. Then on to that really bad propeller.... Chris

    MiG-29 "blue 05"

    I'm putting up some photos of my old builds pre-LSP membership. This is a Revell kit purchased for a few £s'. I absolutely love MiG-29s' since the arrived at Farnborough many years ago. I wanted to build something different so this is taken from the Yefim Gordon book and it's representing a testing squadron akin to Boscombe Down or Edwards. The book was a great reference aid and a few changes were made but you can spend a fortune on AM. The intake covers are scratch built and the canopy cover is paper mache.

    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
  16. Hello folks, well, here I am, my first RFI thread on my first ever LSP build I used the gray and rainy sunday to finish the last details on my Arado Ar 196 B. It took me quite a while to finish, I started it last september. It has A LOT of flaws (which I have hopefully hidden well with my subar photography in my impromptu 'towel studio' ), but it looks quite nice from a meter away AM I used was the Eduard Interior Set and the HpH resin canopy. I really learned a lot on this build and sometimes even had fun between all the cussing Hope you like it! Greets, Jonas
  17. '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
  18. Hello folks, here comes my first WIP thread featuring Revell's Arado Ar 196 B! The Ar 196 A was the standard catapult plane of German warships during WWII and was equipped with two floats, the B version was equipped with one large central float and two small ones on the side: The set lets you build D-OVMB, which is the fourth prototype of the Ar 196, that was tested in Lubeck and Travemünde in 1938. Unfortunately, the plane crashed during a landing accident in december 1938 and was lost in an engine fire. The kit gives you a lot of options for open panels and cowls, wings can be shown in flying position or swept back, etc... Since I am relatively new to the modelling business, I will have everything closed and the wings in the forward position, as this seems the easiest. I am however using some aftermarket parts, namely the HGW seat and seatbelt set and the Eduard photoetch interior. I 'had to' (ok, I wanted to ) order the Eduard set, because I ruined the kit decal for the instrument panel and it was beyond my ability to paint it in any way that would look acceptable. The HGW set was ordererd, because the kit seats with the seatbelts moulded on joust wouldn't stand, they are hideous! Unfortunately, due to 'inexplicable reasons', the parcel with the Eduard set was sent back to the vendor TWO TIMES (thanks for nothing DHL ), so I'm still waiting on that, it should finally arrive tomorrow! I don't think that I will use all the parts as I was already quite busy painting the interior and am quite happy with how some of it turned out. We will see... So, what have I been up to? Well, mostly painting interior parts for now. Here's the cockpit floor with the two sides of the tubular steel frame: I added some wear to the cockpit floor before I realised that the aircraft was only in service for eight months before the crash and probably wasn't heavily worn, will see what I do about that (maybe they just flew A LOT during those eight months ). Here's some cockpit bits and pieces including the radio set, the HGW seats, control column and seat adjustment: And here is proof that the kit seat really is not the way to go and that the 12 Euros for the HGW set are a good investment: Closeup of the radio set (have to admit that I'm a bit proud of how that turned out ): Another thing that I've nearly completed is the engine, a very nice little kit all in itself: I hollowed out the air intakes and the exhaust tips with a drill bit and a knife. All that's left to do here is to weather it a bit (oil wash and some light chipping on the crankcase) and to find some sort of mesh to cover the air intakes. Those sould normally be linked by some kind of actuator rod for a flap inside the intakes, but the intakes are too short and hence there isn't enough space to replicate that... I do have one question, hopefully there is some expert on board that can answer it: The HGW set features a third resin piece that I can't make sense of: There isn't any kit part that looks remotely like it and it is not mentioned in the instructions. Does anyone have any idea what that's supposed to be? If not, it just goes in the spare box to probably never be looked at again. That's all for now, thanks for your attention! Greets, Jonas Edit: The images seem rather big, shall I further reduce the size in future posts?
  19. Hi gents, I'm currently working on the Revell P-51D-5NA kit and would need your expertise concerning the following detail. This early version of the P-51D still had fabric-covered elevators and rudder. As far as I know, fabric-covered areas usually had drain holes to evacuate humidity trapped inside the surfaces and prevent them from rotting. My question is: did such drain holes exist on the Mustang? Where were they located? Thank you very much for your help. All the best, Quang
  20. So for those with the actual kit in hand, and especially those who have built the kit, what is your take on Revell's job on their early Mustang? Some reviews say its terrific and the build threads here show some amazing detail especially in the cockpit. One of the new vendors here has posted his resin parts with descriptions of how bad various kit parts are, especially the flaps (which may or may not be a problem with individual kits so perhaps a production quality consistency issue?) and now the engine cowling as well as the machine gun fairings. I have the kit, have not opened it up yet, but am interested in hearing what those of you WITH the kit think? How are your flaps and cowling,etc? Thanks (and lets keep it civil, ok?) Chris
  21. 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

    1/72 Focke Wulf Flitzer

    A little Luftwaffe '46 for today, the very nice Revell 1/72 Focke Wulf Flitzer. Believe it or not this aircraft actually made it to the wooden mock up stage, but never progressed further. I've equipped mine with a pair of 21cm mortar tubes from a 262 and two X-4 wire guided air to air missiles as a bomber destroyer. The little tractor is from Academy and the base was made from scrap plastic and the base of an old trophy.
  23. Copper State decals applied, time to finish this puppy and move on to the Revell Mustang and a 1/72 Bradley (don't ask...). The build thread is here, just the typical Revell build - dealing with lots of flash, and that funky wing strut thing Revell does on this kit. For me this is just a fun build, love the colorful SPADs and for a WWI exhibit I wanted to add an American hero. (And just noticed I forgot the tail plane rigging!! Damn photos!). Vallejo Model Air, with a final white wash by Flory including dragging down the sides of the fuselage (along with a bit of brown wash). Thanks for following along! Now to rig that tailplane....

  24. Hi guys, I finally finished this one Overall it's nice kit and great value for such a low price. painted with Mr. Color, Alclad II and Mr. Paint, weathering done with MIG prod. and AMMO of Mig Jimenez stuff. AM used: Eduard interior and exterior sets Brassin wheels and prop Zoukei Mura decals HGW seatbelts You can find WIP thread here thanks for looking and all comments are welcome jan

    Heinkel He219 A-0

    Hello! This is Revell's re-issue of their Heinkel HE219, with new parts to make it as the earlier A-0. Built virtually out of the box, except for some Eduard etched seat belts. I used Xtracolor enamels for the camouflage. Straight forward kit, no real pitfalls, but it needs a lot of nose weight to keep it off it's tail! Thanks for looking, Angelo
