  1. It has been a while since I've built a Tamiya kit and wow, how nice it is to put together a kit that REALLY FITS! So many pieces just go in place and some I had to really work to get apart so I could glue them in. Sweet! Here is the box shot: I've opted for the extra decals from Tamiya to do the very interesting aircraft of 2nd Lt Shunzo Takashima of the 244th Air Group. Also some Eduard Brassin but at this point I'm not sure I'll use the wheels. The kit wheels actually look pretty good as it. And the Brassin exhaust is not hollow so I'll take a closer look with the kit pieces to either keep this an OOB build or go with the resin exhausts. Naturally the place to start is the cockpit and even in this small scale has a lot of detail. Sadly, there is only one option for the canopy and that is closed. Hmmm In a larger scale I would have thinned or replaced the gunsight glass but here I'm not sure how much you will actually see. The instrument panel is a decal and the details show up MUCH better in pictures than in actual size. But the detail is impressive! A little bit of silver dry-brushing on the right side switch panel and the right side of the instrument panel. Not a huge fan of the decal seatbelts but with the closed canopy, it was not worth going aftermarket. I'll hit them with some flat before installing in the fuselage. Interior paints are all Vallejo with the exception of use of Tamiya Buff on the seat back. There is some detail in the fuselage sidewalls: And with the radiator housing sides in place: The fit was perfect. And getting the fuselage together: Have dry fitted the cockpit which slides in from the bottom and now have the nose and spine pieces installed. The fit is perfect. More to come! Thanks. Chris

    T-55 Enigma

    Tamiya's Enigma built oob, lovely piece of kit!
  3. Pictures to follow, but I am in with Maverick's Tomcat, using Tamiya's F-14A, Fightertown 48077 and some other bits and bobs.
  4. Hello all This build started in 2005, back then I thought it was a good idea to include pictures of the sprues as a way to publish an in-progress report in a “formal” manner as I saw done with other modelers, so here they are along with an Aires’ cockpit set. While searching for references, I noted that some characteristics of the Corsair were, to my taste, oversimplified in the kit, like the exhaust tubes, tail landing gear and it's bay, radiator intakes, brewster bomb rack and to some extent the main landing gear. I guess Tamiya choose easy of build over accuracy, especially on the underside that is not seen most of the time. What is surprising to me is that, after 13 years, except for the Aires Main gear bays I don’t know of any aftermarket options for this items; Ultracast’s exhausts only replace the kit’s parts but won’t tackle the whole area. The decision was made to butcher the model to enhance the accuracy. Here are the pictures I took back then. Don’t remember why I stopped at this point but must have been a combination of missing references, hope for new aftermarket options and lost interest in the subject. Anyway, I decided it was time to continue. Carlos

    F-15E, 1/32, Tamiya. PARKED

    Hello again. :) This F-15E model is something like 2 models in 1, so enjoy this photo session in its second mode - the "parked" mode! For more - here are the links with the "in-flight" photoshoot and the WIP topic. No loadouts this time, to reveal more of the view....
  6. Some details of new PE set are installed on model. The set made of 0.05mm thick stainless steel and has many optional parts.

  7. What's the closest shade of blue, made by Tamiya , in rattle cans. I have no airbrush and have a huge dislike for Testors only because I have used their spray paints and they take years to completely dry. In fact I have Testors BAB in my paint locker. Tamiya lacquers smell to high heavens but dry in minutes. Also what's the best after market 1/72 Blue Angels F/A-18C decals.Thanks---John
  8. Little behind on getting these videos posted so am gonna try to get cought up today. Looking at a little different subject matter than I have been looking at in the past with Tamiya's 1/48th scale M8 Greyhound kit.
  9. Hello friends, here I bring you another German vehicle. The Panzer Kampfwagen IV Ausf.D made from the Tamiya house at 1/35 scale. The kit has included 3 figures which have been made included in the model. https://youtu.be/ab0IKGWWHsQ Greetings and I hope you like it.

    Russian Tank T34/76 Tamiya 1/35

    Hello friends, on this occasion and for a long time with enough desire I present you the T34 / 76, a medium tank of Soviet manufacture. Made of the Tamiya brand at 1/35 scale. It's the only Russian vehicle I have and I hope it's the first of many. https://youtu.be/FjFHh2L_3rI Greetings and I hope you like it
  12. Okay call me crazy but I picked up this Testors M3 Lee kit for a quick build. I need decals though for it (and have nothing in my spares that comes close) as it comes with no decals. I can use either option from the Tamiya kit or from the Takom or Academy kits. I just need something. ;) Happy to buy and/or reimburse shipping costs. Thanks, Lee
  13. 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

  16. Hello friends Here I bring you one of the best unions between sportsman and machine. The machine or rather the motorcycle is a Honda and the athlete definitely had to be Valentino Rossi. He dominated the 2002 season and achieved the 2002 and 2003 championship over the RC211V. This model manufactured from the Tamiya brand in 1/12 scale, one of my first models made. https://youtu.be/fJmtochZHr0 Greetings and I hope you like it

    Tiger I Tamiya 1/35

    Hello friends The Tiger I was the first tank to be equipped with an 88mm cannon which proved to be formidable on all battle fronts. I had to have it in my collection, from the Tamiya brand at 1/35 scale. Greetings and I hope you like it https://youtu.be/dkT7Twk7v7s

    Tiger I

    Hello folks this is Tamiya's early Tiger I in 1/35 with a RB model alu barrel, tamiya pe grills and a couple of accessories thrown in. There were a lot of ref shots of this exact vehicle (s.pz.abt.503 332 from east front) so wx and battle damage were done iaw them as much as i could. Finished it about a month ago actually but at the time ARC had forum issues so i am posting it now. Enjoy

    Ducati 916 Tamiya 1/12

    Hello friends I set out to show you one of the most beautiful motorcycles in history. Logically it had to be Italian, it's the Ducati 916. Its aesthetics marked with a multi-tubular chassis, a mono arm swingarm and double exhaust outlet under the tail was a novelty in its release to the market. The model is Tamiya brand 1/12 scale, is detailed inside because its fairing is removable. https://youtu.be/2HoNIGQRWxM Greetings and I hope you like it
  20. 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!
  21. I have the following kits for sale from Abilene, TX (79606). Since this is a purge, I am not interested in any trades other than a WingNut Wings Roland D.VIa (32022). All of my kits have all of the parts still attached to the sprues unless otherwise noted. I can accept money order or PayPal...'friends and family' is always appreciated but not required.

    filetless F51d

    just setting here with a dozen kit boxes beside me. One caught my eyes as the box art on the side was nearly identical to the Revell F51d built by IPMS Sweden. Well I Picked up the 1/48th scale Tamiya kit (a very nice kit by the way), and thought maybe it was an option. No it wasn't! Yet Tamiya shows it on the box. So I checked out the decals to see if they were in the box. It looks like Lou IV is all there, but not for the right airframe as depicted in the box. Strange!!! gary

    F-15E, 1/32, Tamiya. Finally ready!

    This Bunker Buster (WIP topic) is finally ready! Quite a challenge - my first 1/32 scale model, 3rd transformable model (with moving parts), definitely heaviest model (about 1.5 kg), my first entirely built model here on this forum and in LSP... i`m just so happy with the result, so far, cause it`s not actually completely ready. This is how it looks unweathered. Still a major further weathering should take place, at some point. A big Thank You to everyone involved with either comments, tips & tricks, advices, critics, etc! About the kit - i built it almost OOB, with the following additional parts included: - GT Resin sets - antennas, a pod, vents, missile rails, shimmy dampener; - Custom-made masks from DN models; - Eduard`s etched masks for the stencils; - A myriad of leftover PE pieces from other builds; - Almost every single door is packed with wires and cables - i used mostly 2 sizes of wires; - Paper tape for reupholstering the seats and for the pilots` suits; - Indefinite amount and type of plastic and wood parts, magnets, metal rods and other components for the moving parts; Well, there are no lights in the model (except for the lights i plan to include in the display case), but here is what can move/attach/or detach to allow a transformation between 2 general modes - flying and parked. I`m starting from the nose to the nozzles, by watching the model and trying not to miss something... * Openable nose cone; * The radar dish rotates and turns; * Openable canopy; * Retractable nose landing gear with a tire that rotates and openable doors; * 5 openable avionics nose bays; * Moveable intake ramps - all of them, including the diffuser ramps; * Openable bleed air exhaust ramps behind the intake ramps; * Openable gun bay door; * Moveable speedbrake; * Interchangeable weapons for the underwing pylons; * Retractable MLGs with tires that rotate and openable doors; * Moveable ailerons; I plan a serries of photoshoots. Here is the first one as it is right now - unweathered. In in-flight mode, with the 2 Bunker Busters as loadout, daytime pics. Hope you like it! Cheerz!
  25. 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
