  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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,
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Here's the finished article, my reminder of a nice day out... 🙂 And it's goodbye from me... Cheers, Dean
  13. This week's news at nearly 9 o'clock! The good news is that we have a Kinetic restock due this coming week! The Harrier GR.1/3. TF-104 Starfighter, Nesher and others will return, as well as a new boxing of the F-5A Tiger! Also due in this week, is Eduard's all new 1/48 Sptifre IIa Profipack! We're still waiting for the new Kinetic Pucara and Eduard Do17 though. As promised last week, the new Aoshima 1/700 ship kits hit the shelves this week. We've sold out the new HMS Jupiter kit but it's been re-ordered and will be back next week! More news next Sunday! https://mj
  14. Hello everyone, I'm thinking about making a weekly update starting now! The idea is to let you know about any new stuff we've had in, any future news and any bargains. New Stuff! - This week we saw the first batch of the all new tool AZ Models Bf109E. There's 3 different 109E-3's and an E-7/Trop to start with. They look a similar quality to the earlier releases of the Bf109F/G and K, so should be decent kits - https://mjwmodels.co.uk/az-models-172--kits-524-c.asp Future Stuff! - We've updated the future release categories on our website. We've updated the selection of Airfix
  15. Happy New Year all... currently on sale is the February edition of Airfix Model World magazine with my Lockheed Vega on the front cover. Here's a couple of teasers... 😉 Cheers, Dean

  17. So this was supposed to be no.16 for 2020 but i screwed the Paint up so had to do a quick recovery so this is no.1 of 2021 Eduards Newtool FW190A5 from 2018 supplied by duncan @BlackMike Models whether you are into 190's or not have a go at one of these kits they are just fantastic out of the box this is the first one I've done out of the box and its just lovely
  18. So here is my one of two kits i have that are eligible for the build Italeris Seahawk in 1/48 that I picked up at an open air swapmeet at Sywell aerodrome earlier this year. the to fuselage sides are off the sprue, but the rest of the kit is on the sprue.
  19. With a little bit of time between the finishing off of the Phantom and the Zero and waiting for the less than a tenner/ exactly a tenner GB to start I pulled this out of the stash that I bought from @BlackMike Models about a year or so ago, as a contrast to the old tool A6 i bult back earlier this year, this kit is an absolute peach tpo build and falls together, I started Boxing day about 13:00 and stopped just now as i was starting to make mistakes. firstly the interior detail is nowhere near as finicky as the original tooling, No complete engine or gunbays for a start, but this m
  20. Happy New Year from us @ MJW Models! Last update of the year now! We've had our final stock deliveries of 2020 now and we have the latest Eduard kits in stock, which are available to order from our website! These are the following 1/48 kits - Bf110G-4 Nightfigher Profipack (re-issue), Bf109G-6/AS Weekend Ed, P-51D-5 Mustang Weekend Ed and the 1/72 Fokker D.VII Ltd Ed Dual kit. I have to say, the new style Weekend boxes look very smart and they now come with 4 or 5 options on the decal sheet! We've restocked on some recent releases too
  21. So, as you all know, this is the only item I possess that comes under a tenner (it was the subject of hot debate and lively discussion on the last episode of Vaastav Tonight) . However, I have ordered a Roden Camel for 750 rupees (appx. £7.5) through contacts in Ukraine, so that maybe part of this as well. It won't be done immediately, as I currently am making a Tiger.
  22. well Its done and It's felt like a bit of a slog but I am just glad to have finished it, Its a cracking kit, fits well and builds up into what looks like a phantom to me So USS Franklin D roosevelt 1972 VF84 Jolly Rogers
  23. Happy Christmas from us @ MJW Models! Don't forget, our website is open for orders over the holiday period and we still have many bargains and cool recent kits available!

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.

  25. Well after the whitley its time for something a little different. So inspired by @mac1677 im doing an Academy F4J in a pirate scheme as it was supplied to me by one @BlackMike Models so it'll be out of the box apart from an eduard zoom cockpit The first thing I did was joined both bits of the fuselage floor together as that looks like its gaps waiting to happen otherwise. Then it was the cockpit with the zoom pe set. Again I'd never be able to paint this .
