  1. Hi! Here my latest work. Additions-Xdecal, Eduard brass, Pilot pitot, Armory wheels, Quickboost small intakes & antennaes I tried to make the faded appearance. Hope You like it
  2. Just arrived from Microscale the new FCM decals for Super Lynx, both in 1/72 and 1/48 scale. These two decals offer seven versions among brazilian (3 versions), portuguese (2 versions) and british (1 version), with enough stencils for one of each country (three complete models). The 1/48 decal is suitable for Airfix kit 10107 and HobbyBoss kit for 1/72. The versions are the same in both scales. FCM 48050 FCM 72048
  3. A 1/24 scale F6F Hellcat... No, I didn't miss-type that scale 😮 (and I will be getting a couple)
  4. My first airliner build that I did for a little Group Build challenge over on Airliner Civil Aircraft Modeller. I used the stand from an Tamiya Spitfire and decals from Airliners Unlimited that I got from Hannetts for less than 2 quid. As you can see I had a little trouble with the tail decal, I had to cut out the name and apply it over the painted tail as the decal shattered. I also masked and painted the cheat line rather than use the decal supplied. I also think airliners just look better 'in flight'.
  5. Hello dear modelers, I've just built this premiere kit recently released by Airfix: Giovanni is me while Francesco is my 8 years nephew. He helped me a lot building it. I.e. he did the aluminium color aerography. The model was a present I gave him some time ago. The kit was built OOB in four days and actually just misses the pitot. Must say I love Airfix that offer us a kit of such a striking subject for a price of about 11 Eur. Here some pictures: I warmly recommend this kit to all. Bye Giovanni & Francesco
  6. So, as this is the year of the SoD clean-up, I pulled this 'gem' from the pack. This is the original 1966 Craft Master release. I got it as a freebie thrown in on a purchase a while back. It was started and rough. I got the seams cleaned up after much putty and sanding. The prior builder used a combination of Squadron Green Putty and super glue for the seam work. Also, the nose had been chipped to the point that they added some super glue and styrene to rebuild it. I trimmed that, puttied it and cleaned it up. That's where she stands. Our very own Ken J. was kind enough to answer my call for decals. I am using an option from the Italeri kit. I just have to source the upper wing roundels from my spares. I think some 1/48 single-engine fighter roundels ought to work. I test-fit the wings to the fuselage. The fit is so good that I will paint it sans wings and then glue them on when it's finished. Much easier to mask off the camo pattern! Sadly, I also discovered that I’m missing one of the ailerons for one of the rear horizontal stabs. So now I am on the hunt for one. Later, Lee
  7. I started this for the Recce Birds, Part Deux GB back in July last year Build thread here . After seeing @Nanook's thread on his Revell build I dusted mine off to continue with it. So I will continue the build here (until I lose interest again ) Hmmm.... 8 months on the side table of doom, not bad! As in my usual manner, I see @Nanook building the same type as me (different scale in this case) I decided to drag mine off the side table of doom (no room on the shelves at the moment) and see where it is at. As I recalled I had to confirm some nose antenna placements and stopped there. Out came the kit and the Pe and I decided to finish installed the antennas. I pretty much sorted out the positions of the antennas and fitted them. Then I realised why I had stopped, the PE antennas in the conversion set are too big, they almost look 1/48 rather than 1/72. I could live with it along the fuselage but they looked far too out of place below the radome. So there placement under the nose was short lived and I replaced them with smaller plastic replacements. They need some cleanup and final shaping after the glue sets. This meant I could use the oversized ones elsewhere. The conversion set is lacking a few extra antennas that have been fitted since it was released. I also added some more plastic replacement on the lower rear fuselage since I found it easier to make replacements out of strip and fit them. I also carved ou the lower surround of the front port door and added a PE part, hinges and door handle have to be installed as well to this and rear port door in due course. Looks like the area needs a tidy up as well. More soon.
  8. Updated 2/27/2018 Hello everyone, Prices do not include shipping, and I'd recommend keeping this in the USA because of shipping costs. However, if you really want a kit and are willing to pay for the outrageous shipping charges, we can talk. Payment can be via PayPal--friends and family is appreciated but not expected or required. Money orders will also work. Because it's a purge, no trades at this time. ---1/24 SCALE KITS--- Airfix Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib bubbletop 19002 -- $120 ---1/32 SCALE KITS--- Academy F/A-18C Hornet Operation Iraqi Freedom 12102 (includes extra decals from original #2191 boxing) -- $90 Revell/Monogram Hawker Hunter FGA Mk.9 04670 -- $20 Tamiya F-16C Block 50 60315 -- $110 PENDING Tamiya F4U-1A Corsair 60325 -- $100 PENDING Trumpeter MiG-23MF Flogger B 03209 -- $70 WingNut Wings DFW C.V late 32057 -- $95 WingNut Wings Felixstowe F.2a Early 32050 -- $220 WingNut Wings Salmson 2-A2 "USAS" 32059 -- $95 WingNut Wings Sopwith Camel F.1 & LVG C.VI "Duellists" 32803 -- $175 ---1/48 SCALE KITS--- Great Wall Hobby MiG-29 Fulcrum early 4814 -- $55 PENDING ---BOAT STUFF--- 1/72 Revell of Germany U-Boat Type IXc 80-5114 -- $75
  9. Hello All, I'm looking for a set of the Airfix kit decals of FX F. If someone can spare a set we can talk about a trade or something. Thanks Moe
  10. built these two a while ago. I have always been fascinated with the captured aircraft markings from WWII. The Messershpit is the Tamiya MkVb with fusion resin conversion set which I have to say is superb and caused me very few issues. I also added a Yahu instrument panel and Eduard harness. Painted using Vallejo in the 'alternstive' scheme to the main stream thinking, but has a strong possibility of being correct in terms of the blue underside. The BF 109 is an OOB from Airfix club edition. Again lovley set!
  11. Hello partners Here I show you a set of models that belonged to the German military force sent to North Africa. There are 4 different brands of models, trumpeter, tamiya, italeri and airfix. A greeting friends
  12. SPITFIRE MK XII - SUSSEX, ENGLAND 1943 (AIRFIX 1/48) Spitfire MK XII - Airfix 1/48 For the first time in more than 25 years I've built an 1/48th scale model. This was a Kris-Kringle present and I decided to build it despite not being my preferred scale. So here we go! This new tooling Airfix kit is really very nicely done, excellent details and fine and crisp engraved panel lines. Also the fit is just perfect and I haven't use putty at all. The decals has two options and I decided to do one flown by South Australian RAAF Flight Lieutnant Donald Smith. Don Smith was the Squadron Leader and it was his personal aircraft. References: The model: Until next time! Cheers
  13. I find my interest in all things Soviet and Russian has waned for the time being and would like to convert some of my stash into cash for future projects. I've got a small selection of kits but most come with aftermarket detail sets / parts all are 1/48 scale and are unstarted. See my listings here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/ant_phillips/m.html?item=182477901650&ssPageName=STRK%3AMESELX%3AIT&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 Thanks for looking and happy modelling. Ant
  14. Sorry! Posted in the wrong forum Moved to: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/300098-spitfire-mkxii-sussex-england-1943/
  15. Here's the Airfix Opel Blitz and PaK 40 from an MPC boxing. The Blitz has some acetate windows plus I masked and applied multiple layers of primer to define the bottoms of the window flaps. The kit piece just had them blend into the rest of the bed cover, I suppose so the part would release from the mold. Paint is Tamiya sand over Vallejo Panzer gray, revealed by the AK chipping fluid process. The Pak had the muzzle brake drilled out and the channel in the mount that the gun slides on in recoil whittled out. Paint is Model Master. Both are weathered with pastels.

  18. Hello gang, My entry for this GB will be Airfix's new Whitley bomber done up as a coastal command sub-hunter. The Whitley had a quintessentially 1930s British design aesthetic, meaning it wasn't the prettiest aircraft in the hangar. The type was designed for night bombing, but was obsolescent by the start of World War II. They were retired from front-line service in early 1942, but continued as paratroop transports, early ECM platforms, and in the long range maritime patrol-bomber role. The example I am building is of an aircraft from 502 squadron, which flew North Atlantic patrols from the Northern Ireland in 1942/43. A real beast! I began work with the engines. There are some nice details, but fit is not spectacular. Also, be careful. Instructions suggest fitting the radiator faces after gluing the two nacelle halves together, but it works better to install them into one half first.

  20. Back to real subjects this week with Airfix's 1/72nd scale P-51D Mustang kit.
  21. Newly announced at Telford for 2017, an RN Spey engined Phantom in 1/72 With the Fujimi kit all but impossible to find in the UK at least, it should have a good market http://bit.ly/2fDN2FJ Shane
  22. Hello all, I'm currently working on the Airfix Lynx, and doing it as a German Navy Mk.88A. Lovely kit, for the most of it, but I'm a bit underwhelmed with the door gun, especially the barrel. It wasn't straight, and it doesn't have any detail at all. Does anyone have a good suggestion for a decent replacement for it? I believe the real thing is an M3M, but I'll take anything that looks like it. The kit barrel is 19mm long, if that helps. Thanks in advance.
  23. Looks like Airfix's next release after the Walrus will be a new P-51D. www.airfix.com%2Fuk-en%2Fnews%2Fworkbench%2Fnew-wwii-classic-in-148th-scale%2F&ref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.network54.com%2FForum%2F149674&title=Plane Talking - HyperScale's Aircraft Scale Model Discussion Forum%3A Airfix Facebook page hinting that a new 1%2F48 P-51 to be announced. nt&txt=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.airfix.com%2Fuk-en%2Fnews%2Fworkbench%2Fnew-wwii-classic-in-148th-scale%2F
  24. Hello All, So, here is my completed Canberra in the colorful ESSA livery (before becoming NOAA). This old Airfix kit required a lot of work to bring it to "modern" standards, but I am happy with the results, although not entirely satisfied with the engine inlets leading edge which are a bit too fat... Note also that none of the Airfix (old or recent) kits seem to have properly captured the attachment of the horizontal stabilizer to the fuselage, and that would have been too much work for me to correct. The WIP is available in the In-Progress section of the forum. Now, enjoy the pictures... I hope you like it ! PS: Decals are homemade (including yellow stripes) and I have couple of sheets available for sale... ;-) Best regards from Montreal, QC Alex CL-215 Forever
