    Hi all - I needed a mojo restorer and this kit really worked for me - a great kit in my opinion. Seat belts from aluminium foil & etched buckles from L'Arsenal of France Flightpath wheel chocks & Fire extinguisher. CJP
  3. Another one that's been ticking over for a few years now. The hold up was decals,namely serials and unit codes,until a couple of weeks ago when I had a conversation with Paul Brown about printing your own. Paul asked if I'd got artwork of what I wanted,so I sent him a scan of a 1/32 decal sheet and explained that I was looking for unit codes,underwing and fuselage serials,Paul said he'd see what he could do. Sure enough a week later he PM'd me with a photo of a sheet he'd created and printed with the required on it. A few days later,an envelope turns up with the
  4. Eduard Camel and Co. 1:48 Scale Dual Combo Part No.11151 History The Sopwith F.1 Camel was a single-seat fighter biplane powered by a rotary engine (various engine types being fitted, the most common being the 130hp Clerget). It was equipped with two forward-firing synchronised machine guns mounted just ahead of the pilot’s cockpit under a raised fairing, which is said to have inspired the name Camel (initially used as a nickname, but subsequently adopted as the official name of the type). The type was highly manoeuvrable and popular with its pilot
  5. Hello all, Like many of us of a certain age, I grew up watching Space 1999 in the 70's. Looking back at it now, it's pretty cheesy, but the classic design of the utilitarian Eagle Transporter endures. I was smitten as a kid, and had the Dinky Eagle, in lurid green paint, and restored one a couple of years ago. I also got hold of the old Airfix 1/72 kit a few years ago, but when the 1/48 scale MPC Eagle kit was announced, I just had to have one. I was saving it for my retirement, so now's the time! Here's the box: ..and for those interested, here's the
  6. Eagles Call Supermarine Spitfire Mk. V Dual Combo Limited Edition kit 1:48 Scale Part no.11149 As far as Spitfire history is concerned, I’m sure that everyone has heard of the Supermarine Spitfire and I’m not going to throw myself under the bus by getting something wrong! The kit: Right well apart from the Mk.1 has there been a spitfire that’s been kitted as much as the Mk. V? as far as I can remember just about everyone has produced one in 1/48 over the years the Mk. Va and b that is………………… Not quite so common however is one of the more overseas
  7. Will appear here when I pay @BlackMike Models for it lol
  8. No more GBs!!! why am I in 2 at once? With a recent bout of illness and mojo death behind me, I got cracking on this one. (Think this in now 5 in some form of incompleteness) Finally got up close and personal to the real life subject of this build at North Weald. Had a little start at the ICM kit, and I'm shocked that unlike other kits there are no locating tabs on the fuselage etc. Means you gotta be precise when assembling. Not many pixs on this one so far. I've got some extras on the way, data stencils and a little PE etc, just to enhance.
  9. So here's where it starts, an original boxing of the Airfix Vixen and on opening the bag after buying this from @Gorby a few months ago I am very pleasantly surprised the plastic is nice and hard, panel lines are fine on first looking I'd put this on a par with the 48th scale lightning and 48th scale Spit 22/24 which I still consider the high water mark for Airfix. Mark had put an Eduard Zoom set in the box (thank you). I looked and the eduard set didn't include any seatbelts and on looking at the Airfix seats they are good in fact very good for injection moulded seats they aren't a patch on r
  10. Eduard 1/48 Scale Focke Wulf FW 190A-8/R2 Weekend Edition Part No 84114 Also, Space 3D decal and Photo Etch set Part No. 3DL48027 History, Well the FW 190 is one of those aircraft that should need no introduction and if you want a full history, please have a look at my review of the 190 A4 Profipack set HERE. Suffice to say that the version we have here causes a bit of confusion as some give some of these versions the A-8/R8 suffix and some giving it an R2 suffix, either way this is one of the most heavily armed variants of the type that was developed as a bomber i
  11. Hi all, you didn't think I'd actually build a Spitfire did you??? So here is my contribution to this ere group build, a kit I've built before and enjoyed more than the eduard Spitfire Mk.viii I built at the same time. Colour scheme is up in the air at the moment but watch this space. To me the Seafire iii is the best of the bunch for ww2 Seafires (unfortunately the Mk. XV was just too late) and did everything from artillery spotting on D day to attacking Truk at the end of the war. It was still a bit of a hodgepodge with various mods being made along the way. Anyway here's the
  12. so in @Mad Steve's evenings entertainment thread i mentioned i was working on a Flanker, this is it I'm building Trumpeters 1/72 scale SU30MKK which I bought from the Laird @RWG686 earlier this year. I'm mainly doing this for practice on engines etc in preparation for building Great wall hobby's wonderful 1/48 SU35 now i'm still playing with the exhausts and other bits and it looks noyhing like the example i'm going to model but I'm quite happy but the blue needs darkening off a lttle (ill use a sepia filter) so heres where I am so far And heres what I'm practicing to build,
  13. Stug III Ausf B, StuG Abt. 203, Russia, summer 1941 Tamiya 1/48 kit blitz built OOB, painted with Vallejo, Tamiya, Akan and Citadel acrylic paints and inks. And finally a penny shot for scale (but only if you know how big a British penny is). Andy
  14. Hong Kong Models 1/48 Avro Lancaster B Mk I The Avro Lancaster needs little introduction, other than saying it was one of the most significant of heavy bombers used in WWII in the Allied strategic bombing campaign against Germany. Modellers have several 1/72 kits to choose from and of course Hong Kong Models released their monster in 1/32. The 1/32 Wingnut Wings kit appears now to be in a state of limbo, leaving modellers wondering whether or not it will ever see the light of day. In 1/48 the only game in town is the now elderly Tamiya kit (first release was in 1975), which in some respec
  15. Yep you read it correctly, a 1/48 B-52! RRP is a paltry £999.99, com on you happy shoppers, form an orderly queue!
  16. Hello all, this is my first build to be posted in the In Progress of aircraft. My main forte is armour, and I just finished a T-72 which can be found here. I got this Italeri Apache recently, along with a Caracal Decals set including an IAF version (we got Apaches just last year) I will however be doing it as an army one, which are painted black.. So that's the twist. The box art. Box itself is of the type approved by the International Modellers' Soviet (top opener). Opening the box disgorges parts, decals and instructions. Rivets are raised and plastic feels like
  17. Meng 1/48 F/A 18 E Super Hornet Price: approx £63.00 History The Super Hornet is an evolutionary redesign of the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet. The Super Hornet's unique wing and tail configuration can be traced back to an internal Northrop project P-530, c. 1965; this had started as a substantial rework of the lightweight F-5E with a larger wing, twin tail fins and a distinctive leading edge root extension (LERX). Later flying as the Northrop YF-17 "Cobra", it competed in the United States Air Force's Lightweight Fighter (LWF) program to produce a smaller and
  18. Time to get started on the next build for my mate Tom. Another type he did avionics systems on. Frustratingly I'm still waiting on the actual tail no. and sqn etc, but i know he wants it green. So that's a help. Sprues are in good fettle, nice clean and crisp. I started on the seating and the floor of the load area. Problem is, I started this in the good weather of the late summer, and memory of the colours used are iffy, but i know i used an AK metalic for the runners. Red seating, and I've used hemp as the belt colour. Mainly this way they'll show up in the closed load area.
  19. Just a quick update from us @ MJW Models! Firstly the Easter Hols are here and our next posting day is Tuesday 6th April, so anything bought from now until then, will be posted on the 6th at the earliest! We've also had some deliveries in time for Easter. We have the brand New Eduard 1/48 Spitfire Mk I 'early' profipack in stock (think 2 blade props!). Also the latest boxing of the Bf109G-6 Weekend is here (G-6/G-6/Trop), plus a Pfalz and P-39Q Weekend. Also finally back in stock is the Mustang weekend edition and Bf109G-6/AS. Other new kits include the latest Airfix 1/48 Tig
  20. This is almost finished, so it's going to be a quck photo montage before I write up the final stages. Tamiya give you three schemes, the box top is 502 Heavy Tank Battalion, Leningrad, spring 1943. The others are a North African tank and an overall grey Herman Goring regiment one. I'm bored with painting sand/dark yellow so fancied the grey but the markings are boring. A bit of research showed 502 got grey Pz. IIIs in August and September 1942 to work with their first Tigers and they got some rough and ready winter camo over that so that was the choice made. Box: M
  21. Should have a trader section soon but I’m in the process of setting up Gannet Scale Models to offer my printed kits from mid-May (hopefully) Plans so far: - 1/72 lasercut Hardened Aircraft Shelter kits in ply (via a EBMA hobby in Germany and UK versions, another to follow) - Miles M.52 - Armstrong Whitworth AW.58 (2 versions) - RAE Proposals for Mach 2 interceptors from their 1952 report An Investigation into an Aircraft to Fly at a Mach Number of 2, Aero. 2462 (2 types) - English Electric P.8 - Fairey Large - DeHavilland DH.117 - Saunders Roe P.187
  22. Apart from our Ebay woes which are in another post, here's some news. We got some of the new Eduard kits this week, including the Ltd Ed 1/48 Dornier 17Z kit. This is a reboxing of the excellent ICM kit with the usual Eduard resin/mask/etch etc. The kit allows you to make a Z-1, Z-2's, Z-3 and Z-5, all Luftwaffe except for a Finnish Z-3. What I like in particular is the Z-2 in Desert Camouflage and Z-5 in night camouflage. Our price is a mere £41.70 (15% cheaper than Hannants) and we have 2 left. It seems to have disappeared from the Hannants website, so it might be discontinued already
  23. Greetings everyone! It's our weekly news! First off, I posted earlier about the Meng 1/32 Fokker DR.1 - we have our last one priced at £48 to clear - we won't restock it. The biggest news this week is that we have ordered the late arriving Eduard February kits as well as the March releases - they should be here in a few days. This includes the reboxed 1/48 ICM Do17Z-2 Ltd Ed kit, new Fw190A-5 Profipack and the 1/72 Du Doch Nicht set amongst others. Special Hobby are releasing a new series or Mirage III and 5 kits in 1/72. The first of which (Mirage IIIC) has been added to our Sp
  24. After the disaster area that is the AMK F-14 and the Grant, i need to finish something. Nearly went Tamiya but ended up with the Eduard Spitfire Mk VIII Rattling through this quite quickly, as want to get something finished, and they do more or less fall together Peter
  25. Time for some news! We finally had the Eduard 1/48 Spitfire Mk II Profipack in this week! It's sold out but we have more on order for next week, so watch out for them arriving. We've also had the brand new Hobby Boss 1/72 F8F Bearcat in stock this week, it's an easy build kit but it's still more detailed than those that have gone before! We also had the Kinetic restock this last week and although some kits sold straight away they are on order for this coming week, so again look out for them! As for future releases read on! We're expecting Kinetic's 1/48 Pucara at some point soo
