  1. We've just had a small delivery of stock, we wanted to get more but don't have the funds at the moment, so we got what we think people would want the most. The kits are as follows - Eduard 1/48 Malta Spitfire V double kit, Eduard 1/72 Fw190A-8/R2 Weekend, Arma Hobby 1/72 P-39N. Sword have also re-issued their 1/72 Spitfire XIV and Strikemaster kits. All these are 15% off UK RRP on our website now! Eduard have also re-issued in 1/48 the Fokker DR.1, one of the Hellcats and one of the Bf109F kits, there's also a French Air Force 1/72 Mirage III from Special Hobby (easily now the best Mirage
  2. The title pretty much says it all! We have both Kinetic Sea Harrier kits, an Israeli F-16 and the Global Hawk drone in stock, plus one ICM Beaufort kit. Check them out now on our website! https://mjwmodels.co.uk/ thanks Mike
  3. Just to let you all know we've got several Kinetic 1/48 kit bargains on our website. The Harrier GR1/GR3 is just over 25% off UK RRP and the Kfir C2/C7 + Israeli F-16D are now 20% off UK RRP! https://mjwmodels.co.uk/ thanks Mike
  4. Pretty much all Eduard kits have gone up in price now but we @ MJW Models will hold prices on existing stock and only increase our prices when we restock. This affects loads of kits in both 1/72 and 1/48, the Ltd Ed kits, Profipacks and Weekend kits. This means most of what we currently have in stock is now 20%-25% off the current UK RRP! Some might be more. These pics are just a few examples of what we have in stock, there's many more on our website homepage. Hurry if you want any at the old cheaper prices, as we've only got one in stock of most of these kits! https://mjwmodels.co.uk/
  5. We've had a restock today with more bargains and we've also added even more 1/72 kits into our 1/72 kit sale. Of note we now have a few Meng 1/35 bargains - their Jeep is about 40% off UK RRP at just over £17. We have got their King Tiger back in stock, it's only 15% off UK RRP but at just over £28, I think it's a bargain for a large and excellent looking 1/35 tank kit, as it is. We've also got the Leopard 1 A3/A4 for just about half price! The ICM 1/48 Ju88D-1 is half price at under £25! We have a few large Hobby Boss 1/48 kits, like the Osprey, Growler, F/A-18E Super Hornet,
  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. 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
  9. An eternity ago I built Hasegawa's 1/48 F-104C Starfighter straight from the box in a Puerto Rico ANG scheme. I soon discovered that the 1/48 decals by Eagle Strike (48-239, "Starfighters 1") weren't really scaled well. The Puerto Rico flag for the rudder was way too large, as were the U.S. insignia. So I opted to build it as 0-70929 as seen on this photo on Airliners.net: http://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Air-Force/Lockheed-F-104C-Starfighter/170101 You can see that the ragged edge of the anti-dazzle panel on the nose is accurate and not because of a lack of masking capabilities! I
  10. 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
  11. Well this is going to be close as I have an online racing league every Sunday from next week and a week's holiday coming up abroad so I make it 3 weeks roughly to build this, I guess everyone thought someone else was going to build a Shar, but we can't have a falklands build without one so here goes. The kit is Kinetics 1/48, and contains decals and parts to build any FRS 1. I'm thinking one of the 809 NAS aircraft at the moment. Any way onto the obligatory sprue shots
  12. ICM have done most of the range of 4 wheeled German armoured cars - I have the Tamiya re-box of the 222 as a future project. This is an odd one though; take a standard Sd.Kfz 22x, remove the turret and all armament and replace them with lots of radios. Then stick a great big pole aerial on the roof and use it to talk to the Luftwaffe. There were only 36 ordered and although more were produced, the total production run of both radio cars (the 261 had a 'conventional' bedframe aerial for talking to other ground troops) was only 483. I can only assume this one was intended to liaise with Ju 87s a

  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  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

    Austin Tilly

    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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  22. 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. Armament was 24 x 9 pound guns on the upper deck, 4 x 3 pound guns on the quarter deck, and 12 swivel guns. She was ordered in January 1771, Keel laid on September 9, 1771 at Deptford, launched August 24, 1774; hulked in 1791. Twenty-seven ships composed this class. A pair of paintings of the ship by Joseph Marshall in 1775 is held by the Scien
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
