  1. Hong Kong Models 1/32 Avro Lancaster B Mk.1 01E10 Limited Edition (Bonus Clear Fuselage) This review is intended to help you through the forest of small Lancaster modifications that were made in both field and factory and (as with the Spitfire) can be quite confusing. We have already shared photo’s of built examples and the first plastic that was available to us, so now it’s time to see what’s wrong and what is right. History of this kit Approximately five years ago Large Scale Modeller spoke to HK Models at the Telford (UK) show and heard of the plans to
  2. Hey guys, Been a while since I posted here, but I wanted to share my attempt at correcting the look of the B-17 around the windscreen/cockpit area. I haven't given up on my C model, as you can see, and I won't be progressing any further with this one for a while as I'll be moving overseas shortly, but I wanted to try a trial just to see if it could be done..... I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, even at this very rough stage! Cheers, Craig Cheers, Craig
  3. It's time for me to stop whinging about whats missing on the HK kit and start to add what's missing instead. The missing pockets down the side of the raised Skippers floor has always bugged me. So I made some. They are basically made of 10 thou plastic card, sanded square and, in this pic, held on with Blu tack. Next will be the trim "wheels" sitting in front of and above the trim whel next to the Skippers seat. I'm currently searching for images of what should be under the raised area. In the kit is a solid wall visible at the rear of the bomb aimers area. This surely isn't correct?
  4. Lancaster B Mk.I, R5868, PO-S (S-Sugar) It's been a week or so since I tool delivery of the test shot for HK's soon-to-be-released Lancaster kit, and despite some pretty crap illness last week, I made some headway this weekend and snipped some plastic. Most of what you see here is dry-fit, with a very small number of glued components. I've read on another site that this model has soft detail and soft edges. Perhaps that's the impression my photos gave, but actually having the plastic here, I know it's not the case, and is no better/worse than recent and contemporary re
  5. 1/32 Paint Mask Set for Avro Lancaster B Mk.I (Numbers and Insignia) DN Models Catalogue #32/827-027 Available from DN Modelsfor $21,99 Introduction Today we take a look at a ‘complete’ mask set for the HK Models Lancaster, which ofcourse will also be applicable for the future Wingnut Wings Lancaster. The brand behind this mask set is new to me, but as the logo states has been around since 2013. Founder and owner Mitko Nikitov sent us these masks after we came into contact through his HK Models Lancaster review. His website shows an extensive ra
  6. Here is my build for the GB.. Do-335 B-2 V13 (RP+UP) Not sure what Aftermarket I am going to add just yet... But I will be adding the following for sure - Brassin Wheels Brassin Exhuasts HGW Harness
  7. Hi just got the HK Models beautiful Lanc. Interested to know, what is the status of the accessories for this like fabric seat belts, dash boards, Instrument panels, barrels, wheels, Bomb sight, H2S radar etc..?
  8. 1:32 Avro Lancaster B Mk.I Hong Kong Models Well, it’s almost here. After a few short (some would say long!) years of delay, the gargantuan Hong Kong Models’ 1/32 Avro Lancaster B Mk.I is soon to hit the shops, and is in final production as I write this. In a few weeks, the decals will be printed, as will the instruction manual and glossy box with its artwork by Piotr Forkasiewicz. There’s no doubt that this will be an impressive product, and certainly one that will make many a heavy-bomber fan very pleased indeed. HK’s kit has 817 parts, a wingspan of 972mm and a lengt
  9. 1/32 de Havilland Mosquito B Mk. IX / B Mk.XVI Hong Kong Models Catalogue # HK01E16 Available from MJR Hobbies for £139.50 The Mosquito was probably one of the RAF’s most versatile aircraft designs, and indeed, an aircraft that we may never have had at all if it wasn’t for the perseverance of its designer, Geoffrey de Havilland. It was actually the simplicity of de Havilland’s design that could well have seen the project being stillborn. To meet Air Ministry requirements for a high-speed bomber, de Havilland proposed a new airframe, composed mainly of
  10. I'll take part with a Meteor F.4 from the (then) Dutch Air Forces, as they were still part of the Royal Army at that time. The Air Force only became the Royal (Netherlands') Air Force in 1953.... In any case, the Dutch Meteors weren't the most colorful variants to ever see the skies, but hey... There aren't many photos of the F.4 around on the internet either, so you have to make do with some early ones, BEFORE the introduction of squadron and base-colors. www.strijdbewijs.nl www.gahetna.nl / fotocollectie Anefo, J.D. Noske The second photo is from September 28th, 1949, sh
  11. Hi there, BIG... WIP will focus on a first stage : the internal sub-assemblies. The ball-turret is on stage followed by the dorsal turret / set of parts. Please feel free to ask questions or leave comments. Thanks for checking-in. Cheers, Laurent.
  12. Ladies and gentlemen, Within a couple of months, or thereabouts, the new B-17E/F will be released by HK Models. I sort of get the impression that this is the one that everyone wants to see, as Memphis Belle can be built from this (and will be included in the decals), plus there will be an option to build another as yet un-named famous machine (with specific glazed part), and parts will be there to build standard E and F variants. Jeroen will be doing a more thorough assessment of the kit, along with Cees, within the next week, so my post here will just take a look at the new parts in this
  13. Many of the people who look here will already have seen this work on another forum. As I am no longer a member of that particular forum, I thought I'd put up some of the work done here. I will start by saying that this thread is not a kit bashing rant or intended in any way to disrespect the work of HK Models. We are all aware that there are issues with the kit and we are also aware that many people are happy with the way it looks out of the box, I for one am not happy with the appearance, so I am pulling out all the stops to correct it and make it a little more pleasing to my eye. I w
  14. Hello Gents ! Will be in with the Dornier Do335 ; one of my top-3 favorite German airplanes. AM : Eduard Brassin wheels, Eduard masks, RB productions seat-belts. Nose engine panels removable, guns hatches closed, cockpit open, 2 aft engine panels in open position for current ground maintenance. Bomb bay closed. I usually build my models out of war context, and this one won't be an exception. No svatiska and no guns, just a beautiful and powerful Dornier Do335. Most likely and partially bare metal, with a home drew Nose Art inspired from ESHER's work :
  15. Hi All, Finally finished the cookie monster! Basically a test shot that misses the fabric patches surface details and didn't include decals. I used Mal's perfect masks for the codes, roundels and No Step indications and also the ProfiModeller stencil decals. These include some typo's and are huge in numbers, but they definitely add some life to the otherwise dull surface of the wooden wonder. I took my time with the weathering part. Using a grey sharp colour pencil for scratches and a silver Prisma pencil for the scratches on aluminium parts, like the cowlings
  16. Hi All, Here we go! Yet another Mosquito being build here on LSM while the kit is not even on the shelves yet. This kit arrived wrapped in bubbles, no decals and no instructions. Got these in PDF from Jim to help me out, since I'm not big with puzzles. Having already seen the sprues and kit at Telford the shock of all the slide mouldings wasn't big, but still impressive... Borrowed a few Mossie books from Cees (since I'm not an RAF expert) and just bought an HGW Sutton harness. My plan is to start with the instrument panel (some Airscale will help me out here) and see where I'
  17. 1/32 Mosquito Mk.IV Series II HK Models Catalogue No: 01E015 Available from all good model suppliers priced £149.99 Anyone who, like me, saw this kit at Telford 2014 will have been awaiting this kit with baited breath. Well its here and all I can say is Yes, its as good as one hoped and from handling at Telford expected of this release from HK Models. A certain Japanese company has also announced a Mosquito so its soon to have some company but I think it'll stand up to that if only for some of the major assemblies and their quality. More of that later. The kit arrives in a very
  18. Hi gang, I actually started this model a few months ago, but in light of a workshop disaster on the production line, I've decided to put it to the front again and accelerate the build. As you might be able to tell, this kit isn't yet released by HK Models, and as far as I am aware, this is the only 335A-0 test shot that exists outside of HKM. I will build this for Tamiya Model Airplane International. For this build, I'll complete it as the machine currently on show in the NASM, but in American colours, as she was evaluated at the end of WW2. This will need the new Eagle Editions decal
  19. Hello Gentlemen, Decided to start here on LSM in the coming couple of weeks this amazing kit. This will be my second 1/32 build. And believe me, It's going to take time ! I opened the nice box while drinking the second morning "Dharkan" coffee. Yeah, conclusion was that i had a very nice gift in my hands and that it deserves my greatest full attention. She's one of my favorite German airplane. I usually build my models out of war context, and this one is no exception. No nazi svatiska, no Luftwaffe attributes and no guns, just a beautiful powerful Dornier Do335 B-2 with Mercedes D
  20. Morning folks! I've been busy beavering away on the HK Models Mosquito for the last week. This has been an exercise in understanding how the 350 parts go together. Thats right...I have no instructions Ideally, I want to build the version which carries a cookie, and also one with shrouded exhausts. Another thing I'd like to include are the invasion stripes. Matt suggested this: This is a possibility, but you'll notice un-shrouded exhausts. That's no big deal, but if anyone can suggest additional schemes with cookies and stripes, can you post here? I promise I'll includ
  21. Hi folks, Behind the scenes, LSM have been very proactive in working with HKM. Mostly on the Lancaster, but we have had a reasonable input to the forthcoming Mosquito kit too. If you'd like to see what we've been up to, then here is the box art, featuring my model, with the rest being done by LSM's graphic than division ( ) Pleased that we can finally announce it. Hope you like it!
  22. Hi guys and gals, The Mosquito is now finished, and all material submitted to Brett for publication in next month's Military Illustrated Modeller. A great kit to build. Pure fun, and no fussiness. Do yourself a favour...when this is released, buy it and share your work here. Here's mine, complete with Miracle Masks markings:
  23. 1:32 Do 335 detail sets (For HK Models kit) Profimodeller Catalogue # see article for price and code Available from Profimodeller I was lucky enough to recently build a test shot of the new Dornier Do 335B-2, from HK Models. This was, apart from an HGW seatbelt set, an entirely out of box experience which was published in issue #43 of Military Illustrated Modeller. It had to be an OOB build, simply because there were no specific aftermarket sets out for it at that time. That's the beauty of working with test shots. However, the first company, to my knowledge, to release upgrade/det
  24. It is a pleasure to start my new airplane now.... I built some other stuff (ships, military, ...) in the past days that's why I wasn't here onlie with news for longer time .... but now I received a pre-serial sample of HK-Models brand new DO-335 monster in 1/32 scale. Together with the brand new metal parts and photoeteched parts by profimodeller I will build the airplane with all hinges open...... Daimler-Benz DB 603 - Engines of the DO-335 First of all I glued together all the engine parts before paintig it all in black. Then I painted the details with a paintbrush before adding some o
