  1. Ok, i’m hitting the go-button on this. the kit has some interesting quirks (a clear cowl? For Gawds sake why?!?!) and i’ve heard of some fit issues here and there, along with the whole internal-mechanics-that-will-never-be-seen thing. but ya know, I need a good excuse for a drink every now and then! so - box is open, and i’m digging through and making notes... Doog did a later version of the kit and i’ll lean heavily on his experiences and notes as i work through my own process. i’m building this as Wicked Wacker Weegie, as it existed the morning of May 12, 1944. On that
  2. So, just something to prove I have actually being doing some building recently and not just commenting on everyone else's. I'm not very good at WIPs as my bench time tends to be sporadic and I'm a crap photographer but anyway here's where we are. Everyone knows the kit and it's faults. I'm correcting some and ignoring some as it'll only be going in my cabinet and no-one else who's likely to see it would even have the foggiest what a SLUF is meant to look like. In terms of AM, I'm going with the following Fox Two books A7E/H in Hellenic Service which is great. Some lovely p
  3. This is what happens when you don't pay close enough attention to kit options... So my P-47 build is of the P-47D-5 series, which has different cowl flaps than those included in the kit. When i first looked, I saw multiple cowl options in the kit and somehow translated that into a mental image of both the earlier straight flaps as well as the later cutout flaps. Well, no. My bad! They had every *other* conceivable option for the different iterations of the D-series razorback, so why not these? So... Yes, my assumptions made an ass out of me. So - has anyone seen a replaceme
  4. As we're into the first weekend of March Break here in Canada, I've got a bit of time on my hands. So rather than do the logical thing and work on something already on my bench, I started something new. I've been in correspondence with Mitko from DN Models about some custom masks for another project so that sort of planted the idea for this build. I decided to do the kit pretty much OOB and closed up. I won't try to fix the twist that the engine box has in real life. It'll be more about the tiger stripes. One thing that stalled this hitting the bench was the ResKit
  5. Hello to you all with the start off a new year im going to start a year project before its ready I have found somthing intresting will i whas in search for some info about another plane I liked the idee and saved the pic Many weeks later and more searching on the net i said yes go for it It will not compleet exact the same like in the pic but you will have the idee off the concept what i have to start it so let the fun begin for the hip im going to change the windows and remove some lumps iff it looks close enough i
  6. I'm gonna be naughty and post my quarter scale Wimpy here. I just move house to about 500meters from a Wellington Crash site. Through a good friend I obtained an engine cowling flap from this particular aircraft and Eduard was so kind to send me the Eduard Big Ed set. May 4th 1943. The RCAF 428th Ghost Squadron Wellington Mk.X returned from a successful bombing raid on Dortmund and, when almost home free and the dutch coastline in sight, was suddenly shot down by a German Nightfighter Bf110. Here's a pic from the plane. The only one I could find in the local museum where crash

  8. 1:35 Russian T-80UD MBT Trumpeter Catalogue # 09527 The T-80 is a third-generation main battle tank (MBT) designed and manufactured in the Soviet Union. When it entered service in 1976, it was the first MBT in the world to feature a powerful multifuel turbine engine as its main propulsion engine. The T-80U was last produced in a factory in Omsk, Russia, while the T-80UD and further-developed T-84 continue to be produced in Ukraine. The T-80 is similar in layout to the T-64; the driver's compartment is on the centre line at the front, the two-man turret is in the ce
  9. 1/48 de Havilland DH.110 Sea Vixen FAW.2 Trumpeter Catalogue # 05808 The de Havilland DH.110 Sea Vixen is a British twin-engine, twin boom-tailed, two-seat jet fighter flown by the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm during the 1950s through the early 1970s. The Sea Vixen was designed by the de Havilland Aircraft Company during the late 1940s at its aircraft factory in Hatfield, Hertfordshire. It was developed from an earlier first-generation jet fighter, and the Sea Vixen was a carrier-based fleet air-defence fighter that served into the 1970s. Initially produced by
  10. 1:48 Fairey Firefly Mk.1 Trumpeter Catalogue # 05810 The Fairey Firefly was a British Second World War-era carrier-borne fighter aircraft and anti-submarine aircraft of the Fleet Air Arm (FAA). Designed to the contemporary FAA concept of a two-seat fleet reconnaissance/fighter, the pilot and navigator/weapons officer were housed in separate stations. It was superior in performance and firepower to its predecessor, the Fulmar, but entered operational service only towards the end of the war when it was no longer competitive as a fighter. The limitations of a single e
  11. I cracked this open mid summer '16 with hopes to finish by 7 Dec for 75 anniversary. Pearl Harbor P36, P40B, A6M2b. As usual, life, family and another wrecked knee kept my bench-time to a minimum. My bench is configured as a standing bench and the wrecked knee dictated my time to something like 30 minute sessions. Trumpy's P40B with all it's known short comings. Will address cockpit, wheel well, fabric and rivet issues. P40B "White 300" based at Bellows Field 7 Dec, 1941. This Bellows Field post 7 Dec P40B has seen better days.
  12. Trumpeter 1:32 Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat VF-4 USS Ranger (CV-4) Atlantic Early 1942 The Grumman Wildcat began service with the United States Navy in 1940. First used in combat by the British in Europe, the Wildcat was the only effective fighter available to the United States Navy and Marine Corps during the early part of World War II in 1941 and 1942; the disappointing Brewster Buffalo was withdrawn in favor of the Wildcat and replaced as units became available. It had a top speed of 318 mph (512 km/h), the Wildcat was outperformed in the Pacific theatre by the faster 331 mph
  13. Hi all, I thought I'd post some photos of my 1/32 Trumpeter Ju 87A, done in Condor Legion colours. The markings are custom masks, as is the emblem on the spat. The model was built with Eduard extras, and the paints are from MRP (Mr Paint, Slovakia). In all, a trouble-free project. I modded the cowl to correct a couple of anomalies but didn't bother with the lower spat shape. I could live with that. This model and build article are in the latest edition of Military Illustrated Modeller, which should be in the shops right now.
  14. 1:32 Junkers Ju 87G-2 Stuka Trumpeter Catalogue # 03218 Available from Hannants for £52.99 The Stuka is hardly an unknown amongst us modellers, and until recently, we only had the Revell/Hasegawa kits to choose from in 1:32, with the exception of the not-so-easy-to-source Ju 87B/R from 21st Century Toys. If you wanted to build the later, and sexier looking Gustav, then it was the Hasegawa and Revell (ex-Hasegawa) that were the order of the day. However, over the last three years, Trumpeter have stepped up to the plate and have released a whole range of Stuka versions, including
  15. Messerschmitt Me 262A-1a/U3 built with AIMS resin conversion and decals Why do I do this? Ok, there will be an update on the 1/32 Fw 189A-1 in the next days, and this is on the runway for completion in a few weeks. Despite this, I still have an open topic for the Sea Hornet that I'm hoping to make progress on in the next months......BUT, how about an infill project? Converting the 1:32 Trumpeter Me 262A-1a fighter into a reconnaissance machine, Me 262A-1a/U3. These were rare machines, with many being converted from standard fighters at Cheb airfield in the Karlovy Vary
  16. Here is Trumpeter's 1/32 Mig 29K built straight from the box. Really no problems building this kit which made it quite enjoyable. Thanks for looking Bevan
  17. So, here's my Trumpeter 109G-6 done as a quick build for a workshop with Jamie Haggo the other weekend. The workshop was crackin with loads of new techniques picked up and a chance to see the master in action! Winter whitewash was the theme and this was my attempt. Anyway, I finished it off this week and knocked up a base to set a winter scene. Aaron
  18. Hi folks, Started building a Mig 3 a couple of years ago. After a couple of years on the shelves (cause building planes is sooooo stressful) I picked this one up and here some wips pics. For some reason (probably cause it's so cool ) I decided to finish it in bare metal, wood & green primed aluminium. But hey listen up, I'm not that much interested in historical correctness and just want to have a fun ride. So we go with some pics. The status as it was a week ago on my desk: Painting the wood starting with masking. Primed it white and applied a pre-shade
  19. 1:35 German Armoured Train PanzerTriebwagen Nr.16 Trumpeter Catalogue # 00223 The Panzertriebwagen No. 16 (Skr. PzTrWg 16 or PT 16) was a German heavy armoured train, powered by a Voith 550hp hydraulic transmission diesel engine, and built by the Berliner Maschinenbau-Gesellschaft Actien vormals L. Schwartzkopff, in 1942. This vehicle was based on a locomotive design for an armoured train (WR 550 D14), and then encased in further armour and equipped with two armoured artillery positions, at both ends of the train. These were initially armed with two 20 mm anti-aircraft guns (2 c
  20. Hello modelling friends, Diving into the unknown here, does anybody know of any good books etc to help me not so much build the kit but to help me paint and weather it. Just love the Russian jets, they get nice and dirty just the way I like 'em . Thankyou for any input. Cheers Bevan
  21. Another of the production line recently - I had hoped to have completed it by the 60th anniversary of the Lightning's first flight (4th August) but I didn't quite make it! This is the Trumpeter 1/32nd scale kit, with the addition of an Aries cockpit set, MasterCasters wheel upgrade set and Xtradecal transfers. I also removed 2mm from the main landing gear legs, as I felt 'out of the box' the tail sits too high - the real aircraft has a slightly tail-down attitude, captured so well by Echelon's kit. A final touch was a homemade air intake cover to add a splash of colour. All paints were
  22. As promised, here are a few snaps of my finished MiG-3. As those who followed my build thread saw, this was a nice, pleasant build with only some minor "modeling skills" required to improve a few areas. And, for those who prefer, it turns out there are some aftermarket sets now available to provide replacement control surfaces and prop blades, which can make things even easier. For this build I tried to replicate "Red 02" seen in a photo taken in March 1942 on the occasion of the 120 IAP, responsible for Moscow air defense, being "promoted" to the 12th Guards. Analysis of this aircraft
  23. So this is going to be my first entrie in the the Pacific GB... F6F-5, "Death n Destruction", BuNo# 72534, Ensigns Donald McPherson, Bill Kingston, Jr., and Lyttleton Ward, VF-83, USS Essex, May 5th 1945. I will be using Trumpeters F6F-5 Kit and Avionix Cockpit set
  24. Evening All, Now that my global headquarters is more or less settled, I thought I would chuck my hat into the ring so to speak! This is my attempt to build a small vignette with Trumpeter's 1/35th Soviet Aerosan NKL-16 + one or maybe two figures using the amazing new Precision Ice & Snow product reviewed by Jeroen Peters here: http://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/1760-review-precision-ice-and-snow/ I really hope I finish this one !!!
  25. 1/35 Cockpit Detail set for Trumpeter Mi-24V Hind E Helicopter Part Photo Etch Poland Catalogue Number S35-017 Available from JADAR-MODEL.s.c. for USD$15,40 Part, a Polish PE manufacturer for all scales and genre's of scale models, make PE sets for many kits and are well respected in the world of modelling. I have heard of them being described as the Aber PE for aircraft? There's no pre printed parts or self adhesive parts, but the sets they make are very nice indeed. The Trumpeter kit, number 05103. It's one of Trumpeters best large scale kits available in my opinion.
