  1. Today I want to present to you my finished F4U-1A Corsair Diorama. The work in progress pics are here: I had the idea for a propaganda-scene when I came across the figure of a cameraman from the US Navy of WWII in 1/35 and the Black-Sheep VMF-214 wooden sign in 1/32 scale from King&Country. The figures are a pilot out of the Kit, a director and a mechanic and a woman soldier of the Navy Medical Corps adoring the kill-marks on the plane. Especially the Ultracast figure of Boyington is beautifully sculptured. The airfield plates are from Brengun and the turnable plate from IKEA. The palms are handmade and come from a German Diorama Accessoires supplier. Thanks for looking. FullSizeRender.mov
  2. Here are some pics of the work in progress of my Tamiya Corsair Diorama depicting the aircraft of Gregory Boyington in a scene called „Propaganda Debriefing“. I want to share these pictures with you although I build the model and diorama already in 2017 so that you do not always see only my finished models. I will post some fotos of the finished model and diorama later in the finished works forum. Thanks for looking.
  3. 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
  4. 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. Flat coat is Testors Dullcoat.
  5. 1/32 P-47C/D Main wheels Barracuda Cast Catalogue # See article. Available from Barracuda Studios for $8.95 each Roy Sutherland at Barracuda Studios has sent LSM his latest wheel sets, this time for fans of accurate 1:32 P-47 'Jugs'. Wheels are a science in themselves, with numerous tread patterns being used in various theatres, periods etc. Barracuda have released THREE new sets to cater to all your Thunderbolt needs, and these are: Product # 32059 Block Tread Product # 32060 Diamond Tread Product # 32061 Cross Tread Barracuda Studios is based in Fremont, California and ran by Roy Sutherland, who is a very talented modeller. For those who are not familiar with Roy's work... He produces some very fine upgrade/correction parts for a few different kits on the market of different scales. The quality of his work has to be the best on the market these days and even better, I personally believe his products are worth more than you actually pay! But just don't mention that to him! One... well not just one, but three of Barracuda Cast latest releases are for the 1/32 Republic P-47C/D Thunderbolt kits that are currently on the market and suit either the Revell, Trumpeter and Hasegawa kits. All these kit's have the same problem, some worst than others and poorly detailed and incorrect tires and hubs. Each set has six beige/light tan resin parts and a full set of colour instructions, which is neatly sealed in a zip-lock bag and secured to the retail cardboard packaging. Each resin piece is elegantly casted and finished without any casting imperfections. The separate hub pieces are crisp and beautifully detail. Two types of hubs are offered, the plain cover or slotted options. The slotted option has a small amount of flash to be removed between each spoke. The three common tire patterns that are found fitted to the P-47 Thunderbolt are now available, which are the Block, Diamond and Cross tread patterns. With these three tread options now available to modellers, you can now mix and match the tread, as is commonly seen on many Thunderbolts. From left - Hasegawa, Barracuda Cast, Hasegawa, Trumpeter Treads So what do we think? My only complaint is that is no tail wheel supplied, would and nice addition if you're not a fan of the rubber tire that is supplied in Trumpeters kits. Otherwise the wheels are beautifully detailed, the low cost for the product...The best P-47 mainwheels in town, a must for any 32nd scale C/D Jug! Highly Recommend! Our sincere thanks to Roy at Barracuda Studios for the review samples used here. To purchase this directly, click the links in the review article. Dave J.
