  1. This one's for Martin! This is my current Tamiya Spitfire build. The plan is to do it as JE-J jr with her infamous ModXXX beer barrels. Profimideller make a conversion set for this but they make you assemble the barrels from individual staves. Not being a cooper, i couldn't make that work for me so I found some wood barrels in a suitable size: Much easier. JE-J Jr is a IXe so I had to modify the wing armament to match. AML make a suitable conversion set so I used that. Cannon barrels are from Master. The engine all assembled and rea
  2. Ok I guess it's time I started a thread on this build since it's gone beyond just a set of tracks. I picked this up since it looked like an interesting kit and both and the Modelkasten tracks were on sale. Knowing that the tracks would be the stumbling block, I decided to start with those. Modelkasten gives you a jig to help assemble them. You remove the track links from their sprue, palace them in the jig and then insert the individual pins into each one. To make things easier, the pins are on those long sprues and once glued in place, just trim them off. Ot
  3. Hi, am just back off holiday and ordered these for my first ever group build. I was looking for inspiration and found this photo, it was taken in Italy, but I am transplanting to Normandy. I will park the Carrier to the rear of the house. Really looking forward to the build. I just have a few bits to finish on two others and then this is next on the list. Cheers Kev
  4. I definitely need at least a couple for my kids as they've knocked over a bottle or two of cement. Of course I've knocked over a bottle or two of cement at some point so maybe I should get a few... Link for ordering: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10660542 Carl
  5. Well it seems I have a bad case of squirrelitis as I've pulled yet another kit out of the stash and I'm, started it. The plan is to do it OOB and just get her done from start to finish. Well, that's the plan. Carl
  6. Taking a break from some "therapeutic" resin builds and conversions I decided to go smaller scale with this Mossie. Will build as PR variant. Current WIP's SH Tempest Mk.V, TAM A6M2b and TRU P40B tucked away while I tackle this project.
  7. Salut les messieurs, get your Gauloises between your lips and enjoy some Camembert with some vine rouge , its time for some French feelings with the build of this early war beast. After finalizing my Dottie Mae, I decieded that it is time to finish some kits which where lurking in their boxes for a long time. Some years ago, back in Berlin, I build the Char B1 and it was completely tamiyaesque, meaning great. What makes the kit even better than most others by the brand, are the single link clickable tracks, which are fully moveable and durable enough for painting and weathering. The
  8. Hi gents, started this proyect some years ago and now I'm ready to finish this amazing tamiya kit, cheers! Antonio. this is my progres with the cockpit so far.
  9. This is my first completed build of the year, it was built as part of the Grumman GB. This build was originally planned to be a Hasegawa F-14D with Aires Cockpit and Avionix’s “Bombcat” Update/Conversion kit. But as luck would have it I won the monthly raffle at my local IPMS and took home Tamiya’s awesome new 1/48th F-14D!! I can’t rave enough about this model, it’s truly beautiful and without doubt one of the nicest models I’ve ever built. I had planned for her to be an OBB but she needed a few extras to her just to finish her off. The OEM wheels are rubber/metal and rubber w
  10. I am sure most of you are in the same position... Trying to finish those last projects for 2018! I just managed to knock this one off a few moments ago that I started back in March. As per normal.. Family life, work and another round of back surgery have keep me busy. Having some free time today, I picked this one up an managed to finish it was it was pretty much weathering that I had to complete. It's my 4th Tank I have ever built. Tamiya's 1/35 Jagdpanzer IV /70 Lang. Built from the box, but I did use Kaizen tracks. Painted using Mission Models Paints, Camo was painted free hand. and we
  11. Buenos Dias, friends of the tool heavy workbench, I have a very special relationship towards photoetched parts in modelling. I love to work with metal, enjoy the enhancement of detail and after applying PE sometimes I whish, it would not be necessary to paint these parts because of the luster shine. On the other hand PE can be a real PITA and has the tendency to unify itself with the carpet monster even more than plastic parts. Over the years I used lots of tools for working with PE, there were bending tools, rolling tools, pliers and tweezers and all of them were helpful, but there
  12. Tamiya A4e 1/32 skyhawk kit converted to RNZAF A4k skyhawk NZ6209. Currently on static display at Ardmore Warbirds hanger Auckland. Aires cockpit, seat, wheel wells. Scratch built instrument panel A few bits and pieces moved around, tail straightened Scratch built intake covers Ladder by Profimodellor Custom decals by Simon Hutton at KitbuilderNZ
  13. This is my 1st post with LSM. This project was a commissioned build for a customer in CA, USA. I had built a 1/32 Trumpeter AVG P-40, and a 1/32 Tamiya F4U-1A. So he needed to have the nemesis to these 2 birds so hence came the Zero project. It was built OOB except for the add-on decal sheet by BERNA decals. I have included many of the build photos in this post so you can get an idea of the progression in this build with several of the techniques used. He enjoys WW2 aircraft that are heavily worn and beat up so this build was not exception to that desire. We had a difficult time findin
  14. Haven't posted any progress on this to date but have been beavering away for the last few weeks. The kit, which I'm sure all are familiar with. Goes together like a dream with very little problem and very little seam work. This is the current state of play. Cockpit done and installed but didn't manage to get any pictures at that stage. Used the HGW seatbelts and painted and weathered everything using Ammo's RAF cockpit set. First time I've used the HGW belts and although fiddly they weren't too difficult. I followed the tip I've seen mentioned on a few forums to leave the
  15. Quick blast to get this finished before the holidays. My wife's Xmas nights out have made for good bench time to get this completed. Aircraft I was basing this on was 307 from the First Fighter squadron from the early 2000s. Not perfect but close enough for me. Out of the box but with PWMP tail fairing from J-P van Regenmortel and Isracast Python 4s. Paints are in the main the Ammo Desert Aircraft set with Tamiya acrylics for detail and weapons. Weathering with Ammo panel line washes and filters, etc. Sorry about the hand! As always, comments,
  16. Just to show I haven't just been lurking on here since I finished the Eagle a few weeks ago. This is the Tamiya F-16CJ kit which I'm going to build as an Israeli F-16C Barak as I want to try some scratch building and the Isracast conversion now seems to be extinct. I have a copy of the instructions from the set and I'm going to try and replicate it as best I can using Evergreen stock. This is the airframe I'm hoping to build. A First Jet squadron aircraft from the late 1990s with a loadout of JDAMs, Python 4 and AIM-9L. I've started as the instructions indicate with the engine.
  17. Hello all ! First WIP for me here on LSM, very happy to start this build with you. I choose the well know Tamiya Spitfire IXc . I will do this scheme. See you soon for the first step. Clostermann
  18. So I was clearing out some rubbish from the Garage and I found a Mk.VIII Spitfire that I started back in 2010 when the kit was first released by Tamiya... Looking at its current state, I cocked up the paint masks... thinking back this was probably the first time I tried to use a multi part mask. Its nearly finished and it won't require much work to get it back to workable state to complete it! Looking into the pit area... I have used the kit parts and added my own wiring, placards, Eduard Harness and Master barrels.. So it will be a shame for it to sit and rot away
  19. Hello, the beauty is finished ... I love the Mosquito as one of the most beautifully shaped airplanes ever.... she has a kind of elegance in her shape ... Kit is from Tamiya in 1/32 with many, many parts, great fit, great quality, great details, great manuals, great ..... a fantastic kit of a huge model! I have added some photo etched parts from Eduard, some new decals for the stencils and markings (Canadian Airforce with beautiful nose art) and some resin parts. Painting was done with Lifecolor-colors mainly, plus AK Interactive. Weathering wit
  20. The second kit of my summer '16 start with hopes to finish by 7 Dec for 75 anniversary. Pearl Harbor P36, P40B, A6M2b. Life hit the fan and bench time kept to minimum. My wrecked knee kept me from working at bench as it's 36" (91cm) high and I stand to do my work. Tamiya's very nice A6M2b will be base kit for my Pearl Harbor subject. IJNAF pilot Shigenori Nishikaichi's A6M2b "B11-120" will be the subject. I've always been fascinated about the story of the "Niihau Incident". Nishikaichi crash landed his aircraft after receiving damage during the second wave attack at Pearl Harb
  21. hello to you all the next kit i will start is the mosquito from tamiya yes another one I hope to make a start soon on this one Mark
  22. So here are the finished pictures: Decals were Uschi van der Rosten WGSF48-C (Fine Veneer Plywood), WGSF48-B "Knotless Birch) and Ho-229 Special Edition (1 of 6). There were more than 160 individual pieces in total. Metallic parts were Vallejo Air Silver, Aluminium & Steel. Eduard belts, radiators & intake mesh. Master Model brass machine gun barrels. Little Lenses in various positions. Acetate reflector gunsight. Lead wire brake pipes. Brass tube pitot head. A bit of scratchbuilding in the cockpit. Apart from that OOB. It's another great Tamiya kit. Build thread here:
  23. 1:32 F4U-1A Corsair Engine Bay (for Tamiya kit) Grey Matter Figures Catalogue # GMALB3203 Available from Grey Matter Figures for £26.40 In actuality, this new set from Grey Matter Figures isn't an engine bay set, but what it does provide is the hardware to the rear of the engine bulkhead panel, on Tamiya's new Corsair releases. Tamiya does a good enough job of the engine anyway, and of course, there is an Eduard Brassin release, should you want to go the full aftermarket route. Up until now, however, you've had to option to open things up further. Let's take a look at this set and see what
  24. I was tinkering away with this one in between other builds. It's a straight from the box 1/35 Tamiya kit and although a little long in the tooth now, stands up pretty well, except for the figures, they aren't the best when compared to Dragon.
  25. This is my first attempt at a large scale figure and I admit to practicing on the head more than a few times, even so my face painting is nowhere near as good as some I see, but I figured after several years of the headless fighter pilot being in the cabinet, it was time to finish it off. Brush painted with Vallejo and the base was made from an old model show trophy, some dirt from the back yard and MiniNatur grass tufts.
