  4. 2018 builds I haven't posted any work on here this year so best to get something done Hobbyboss Spitfire Vb in Malta homebrew colours. Then we have a Hasegawa fw190A-8 abandoned in Sweden 1945 from JG300 Sneaky 48th up next but biggest thing I've built to date. Revell boxing of Monograms PBY5a converted to a Canso in RAF coastal command markings Finishing the year with a Trumpeter 109G-6/R6 nightfighter from JG300 Currently working on Revell P-51D HK Lancaster and HB B-24J new arrivals and builds for 2019.
  5. 1/32 Me 262B-1/U-1 Nightfighter Revell Catalogue No. 04995 Whilst there was a rush to not just develop a viable jet engine, by both Britain and Germany, with various airframe prototypes being constructed by both sides, the final accolade must go to Germany for being the first country to introduce the world’s first operational jet fighter. The Me 262 seemed to be beset with problems from the very outset, stemming from logistical issues with raw materials and engine supply, to there not being an appetite to use new technologies to forge Germany’s military destiny. Th
  6. 1/32 Revell P-51D Mustang TEST SHOT First Look I've been asked to build a test shot of the forthcoming P-51D from Revell. This will be for TMMI, and be finished in the kit decals for LOU IV. Permission has been given for me to publish these images of the test shot here on LSM. Please remember though that there are quite a few scuffs on this model as they aren't treated with the same kid gloves as a production standard kit, and the plastic is also darker, harder and a little more brittle than what you will see in your own kits. So, take a look at what we have here
  7. Hi all, I recently finished another rush build for Tamiya Model Magazine International. This time it was the new tool Fw 190A-8/R11 in 1/32. I built the F-8 2 or 3 years ago and loved it. This has the same fun factor. I also fitted it with numerous Eduard PE and resin sets. Paint is MRP. Look out for this one in the December issue of TMMI, out on November 16th.
  8. Evening all The latest off the bench is Revell's new 1/32nd Spitfire MkIXc, which as I'm sure you know follows their release from a few years back of a Spitfire MkII and thus the breakdown of the kits is almost identical. This was a very pleasurable build and it went together relatively trouble free; the only filling needed was as the wing root fairings where the moulding was slightly short - I've seen this on many other builds and know it wasn't just my kit which has this issue. The simple solution is to add a small plastic card shim to each fairing and smooth it in wi
  9. Had to replace a warped part. After filling out the online request I was asked to submit the original UPC code. Revell USA received UPC code from me 24 March. New part arrived 4 April. I also received confirmation from Revell USA on receipt and status. It was a painless experience. Kudos Revell USA Customer Service! Now, if they would just get to work on some Ju88 variations. 388, 188, C2...
  10. Here is my newly completed Revell Mk IX in the markings of Dutch wartime pilot A. Homburg. Building it was a pleasure. Hope you like it. Cheers Cees
  11. I picked up this long out of production single-seat 1/32nd MiG-29A cheap recently, and fancied doing a Polish version so also ordered a set of Decals from Techmod. I built this more or less out of the box, but did close the upper air intakes with plastic card, made some FOD guards for the exhausts and intakes, and added a seat belt set from Eduard, but kept the cockpit closed as it's fairly basic for this scale. Paints were from Xtracolour with varnish coming from Humbrol. I thought about coating it in gloss, as the Polish MiG-29s are very shiny and clean, but decided
  12. 1/32 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IXc Revell Kit No. 03927 The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries before, during and after World War II. The Spitfire was built in many variants, using several wing configurations, and was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft. It was also the only British fighter to be in continuous production throughout the war. The Spitfire was designed as a short-range, high-performance interceptor aircraft by R. J. Mitche
  13. Finished this one before June last year and was intended for the 1945 group build here but never made it. Great kit and goes together well. I used some of Barracudacast's resin bits including small wheel bulge inserts, exhausts, spinner, blades, main wheels and the little cowling vents. Also one of Roy's decal sheets as well. Thanks for looking Bevan
  14. I fancied a quick and easy project and seeing Spitfires overhead daily during the summer months (I'm under the approach to Biggin Hill) I didn't need much inspiration to dig this one out of the attic This model simply fell together and was an absolute joy - construction of the main airframe only took a few evenings and I only used a smidgen of filler at the wing to fuselage join. Decals were from EagleCal and I also added the MDC corrected spinner and oil cooler,to more accurately replicate a MkIIa. The model depicts P8088 of 118Sqn during April 1941.
  15. Hi there. I would like to share my latest build of the Sea Lynx Mk 90B (RDAF) End of june I was visiting Helicopterwing Karup i Denmark, and had a tour of their facilities. They are keeping the RDAF fleet of Helicopters in shape for their duties. Today the fleet concists of Aerospatiale AS-555 Fennec (12), Agusta Westland EH-101 Merlin (13) SH-60 Seahawk (3) 6 on order. And of course the Westland Sea Lynx Mk 90B (8) So I just wanted to do this build of the danish Lynx before they are being taken out of service. Manual on the Lynx... Aftermarket from Eduard, p
  16. Revell He-162 with Aires cockpit. The cockpit was a bit of a bear to get "seated" despite the fact that I scraped away all existing kit side wall detail to such an extent that I left the fuselage at near-paper thinness. RLM76 underside and RLM02 wheel wells painted with Vallejo Air (my first and last time using them). I know others love them but i just couldn't get the hang of them; I experienced constant airbrush clogging with them. In fairness though, the finish was quite good. Decals were from the kit and were excellent. I'd like to build this kit again but completely OOB. I also added a bi
  17. Evening all, I've just finished building this as a mojo-mender as with a few long term projects on the go, I'd become bogged down and in need of something that went together without problems - this 1/32nd scale twin-stick MiG-29UB proved to be just the medicine. I picked this up at Telford for £25 which proved to be very good value for money. It's quite simple kit but in truth that's why I chose it - the cockpit lacks detail and the undercarriage bays are very basic, but the overall fit and construction is excellent and I encountered no construction issues at all. I used the decal
  18. This is my first completed build for 2016 - the 1/32nd scale Heinkel He 111 P-1 from Revell. I started this back in the summer of 2015 as a 'pick it up and do a bit as you fancy it' build, and I've been working on it on and off for the last 6 months or so. I have built it more or less out of the box, but I did add some Eduard detailing for the seatbelts and instruments etc, as well as some brass barrels for the guns as the kit's are undersized. It was an absolute joy to build and went together beautifully - very little filler was needed and it proved to be a completely trouble-fre
  19. Date 24th October 1940 Location Gilze-Rijen Airport - The Netherlands Squadron 3./NJG2 Pilot Fw. Hans Hahn Hans Hahn was born on 9 February 1919 at Rheydt in Rheinland. Hahn trained as a bomber pilot and was assigned to a Kampfgeschwader in January 1940. In May, he sank a 4,000 BRT freighter off Dunkirk. Shortly thereafter, Hahn transferred to the Nachtjagd. Hahn was posted to NJG 2 on its formation in September 1940. Feldwebel Hahn was assigned to 3./NJG 2. He gained his first victory on the night of 24 October 1940 on an intruder mission over England shooting down a RAF Whitl
  20. Hello fellow GBer's, joining in with Revell's 32nd scale Erla G10. Cockpit is completely out of box apart from the belts. Painted with Tamiya Xf24 with highlights added then sealed with clear. For something different I gave the pit a liberal titanium white oil wash to try and get a more worn/faded look then re cleared. Next a pin wash with black/burnt umber oils to bring out the detail. Detail paint with Tam and Humbrol enamels. Belts made out of lead foil with the buckles from an Eduard seat belt set, painted with Tam buff enamel and washed with the black/burnt umber oils.
  21. Here's the latest project to cross the finish line - the 1970's original issue 1/32nd scale Spitfire MkI which has been used as the base kit to produce a Spitfire PRXIX using Grey Matter's conversion set. I chose the original Revell kit rather than the latest release due to the far superior surface detailing (and the fact that it was picked up cheaply at an airshow!) and although it has an issue with the lack of the gull wing effect on the underside I found that far easier to live with than the ridiculously over-scale trenches and rivets seen on the latest Revell offering. The convers
  22. Here's my entry to the build. Its the same one I was going to do for the Junkers GB but ran out of time. Revells 88A-1 AM bits for it New AM bits just added! CMK exterior set (I want to show the dinghy to break up the black) Profimodeller's ladder and pitot Revells boxing of the ICM kit (same model half the price!) Vulcans Motorcycle and sidecar And finally Tanks figure which is pretty close to the pose in the pics! I started last weekend and will post up the progress pics where I'm up to later on Aaron
  23. Hi folks, I've kept this one pretty much away from LSM simply because of the limited time I've had to build this for publication. From start to finish, this was built over 3 weeks, with only about 2 weeks of that really being used. This is a test-shot of the forthcoming 1:32 Focke-Wulf Fw 190F-8, from Revell, finished in kit decals. Watch out for this next month in Tamiya Model Magazine International.
  24. 1:32 Spitfire Mk.II instrument panel Yahu Cataloge # YMA3201 Available from StoryModels for £5.19 I remember having real fun when I built the test shot of the Revell 1:32 Spitfire Mk.IIa last year. The kit isn't perfect, by any means, but one quirk I had to deal with at the time was the rebuilding of the instrument panel which was reversed. Revell actually fixed this and made quite a nice job of it, but if painting and super-detailing instrument panels isn't one of your preferred tasks, then Yahu have come up with a solution. This, with some minor plastic surgery, will give
  25. With the Do-335 cleared out of the way I think it's time to finally tackle one of my all time favorite subjects. The He-219... I could have bought the ZM one but I chose not to. Why? Because the kit is over engineered which causes a lot of AM companies to ignore it. Thinking it doesn't need anything. Revell's He-219 is cheap and basic. Yeah yeah, i know about the engine shape and canopy and I don't care. CMK, ProfiModeller, Eduard, HGW, and more companies have released juicy upgrades. This enables me to indulge in my favorite activity.... AM-hunting!! Waiting for some shipments no
