  2. Eduard Grumman F4F-3 Wildcat Profipack Edition Part No EDK 82201 History The Grumman F4F Wildcat is an American carrier-based fighter aircraft that entered service in 1940 with the United States Navy, and the British Royal Navy where it was initially known as the Martlet. First used by the British in the North Atlantic, the Wildcat was the only effective fighter available to the United States Navy and Marine Corps in the Pacific Theatre during the early part of the Second World War. The disappointing Brewster Buffalo was withdrawn in favour of the Wildcat a
  3. Eduard Aftermarket accessories for the F4F-3 Wildcat Part No.s EX878, FE1290,3DL48076,48106,648777,644172,648779,648767,648766,648769 Hot on the heels of the rather nice Eduard wildcat kit, comes some of the aftermarket sets that will enhance the kit, Now this is all subject to taste, budget and enthusiasm, but some of these sets will transform an already very nice kit into a really nice model. So lets start EX878 T/Face canopy and wheel masks, a repeat of what is already in the Profipack kit for those who buy some of the overtrees or a weekend kit
  4. Hi Guys, QUESTION: I have one of these in the stash... ...along with the commensurate Eduard Big-Ed PE set, and a bunch of ResKit resin extras (main and rear rotor hubs, engine intakes). I was THINKING (and I emphasise THINKING ) about trying to sell it as I admit it is looking unlikely I'll ever get around to building it - my ambition over-rode by ability when I bought it nearly a decade ago. Couldn't find any examples on evil-bay to get any idea of what might be the current going rate. The sprues/runners are all still sealed in their original bags etc, so it's "brand new
  5. Evenin All This is that young Indian fella's fault, the one building the Sturm Tiger Every time I read his posts, I look up on the shelf at the Tiger sitting there and keep thinking, mhhhhh.... I'm not the biggest fan of German WWII armour, but I am a big fan of Tigers The original Tiger 48th scale Tamiya released was the first 48th kit I built, so time for another one hey This one is the late production variant and I have the lick & stick Zimmerit decals for it too... I'll upload some more pics tomorrow
  6. 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.
  7. Time to bite the bullet. Back in May I was asked by a friend of mine to build a Tonka for him. There was one on 56Sqn that he worked on regularly and that's the one he wants built, but could I actually do 2. 1 for him, 1 for someone else on the Sqn. "Not a problem" Said I. "What scale??" Errrrrrr. I'd like So big, Right, 1/48. Never having built that scale, this is going to be fun. I managed to track down 2 and was about to go extras shopping when the offer of the Eduard kit happened, so now, I have 3 - 1 for me! So, here we go! The last Revell I build was their 1/72 Lancaster, and I
  8. 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

    Tamiya 1/48 Austin Tilly, HQ Company, 10th Armoured Cavalry Brigade, 1st Polish Armoured Division, Falaise Sector, France, August 1944. Built almost straight from the box - I swapped the Division sign from Polish 4th Infantry to Polish 1st Armoured, using 15mm decals from Plastic Soldier Company. Akan, Hataka, Tamiya and Citadel paints and inks. Andy
  10. Eduard Tora Tora Tora Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero over pearl harbour Dual Combo set 1/48 scale Part No 11155 History, I don’t think anyone hasn’t heard of the Zero but for those who haven’t here we go.The Allies' main opponent in the Pacific air war, the Zero is the most famous symbol of Japanese air power during World War II. The fighter first flew in April 1939, and Mitsubishi, Nakajima, Hitachi and the Japanese navy produced 10,815 Zeros from 1940-1945. Zeros were produced in greater number than any other aircraft. Its distinctive design and historical impact make th
  11. It's about time I did an update! First of all, our website's homepage is crammed full of kits and paint sets at bargain prices! These range from 20% to almost 50% off UK RRP! Some of the bargains are ones were we are down to the last example, so when they sell, the offer is over. Also there's also new offers we add too, so what's on offer will change, depending on what we can get in. There's plenty of Eduard kits in particular with 20% (usually more!) or more off UK RRP - 1/48 and 1/72. Don't forget, our regular discount on kits and paint sets is still 15% off UK RRP! New Stuff. We'

    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
  13. HMS Enterprize was the lead ship of the Enterpize class of 1770. The class was designed by Sir John Williams with a gross dimensions and tons of 120’6” (gun deck), 99’6” (keel), 33’6” (beam), 11’ (depth of hold) and to carry 200,men.

A pair of paintings of the ship by Joseph Marshall in 1775 is held by the Scien
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Will appear here when I pay @BlackMike Models for it lol
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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,
  24. 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
  25. 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
