    I don't know if anyone else has spotted it but Airfix are giving away a MiG-17 (Lim boxing) kit with orders of £40 or more and their MiG/17/A-4B Skyhawk double kit is really cheap right now. That means they'll be on their way to me soon. That's made me crack open my existing MiG-17 kit from Airfix. I'm planning to do an Egyptian one with no ordnance and thought maybe do another one as a Czech aircraft. Did the Czech MiG-17F's ever carry the rocket pods or the other rockets you get in the kit? I fancy putting some ordnance on one of the models at least. thanks Mike

  7. Hello. Another oldie from Revell (H-202). Some modifications in the cockpit, but unfortunately I didn't take photos during assembly, and my camera can't get close enough to get good images now that the model is finished. I added the spotlights (built from scratch with pieces of clear sprue). The squadron code is fake (sorry, L-O-P were the red letters I had in the decals spares box, I figured with the RAF roundel they would form the word "LOOP" ). Hope you like it.
  8. We've reduced a few prices on our bargain kits - some of which we are down to the last one and we can't restock at the cheap price Aoshima 1/700 HMS Kent - now only £25 - RRP £40! Eduard 1/72 Avia S-199 (ex Bf109) Bubble Canopy - Last One! Only £10.80 - RRP £16.30! Hobby Boss 1/32 Spitfire Vb Trop - Last One! now only £27 - RRP £46! Hobby Boss 1/35 Leopard 1A5 MBT - Now down to £30 - RRP £53! Meng 1/35 Merkava Mk.3D MBT - now only £39 - RRP £65! AS you can see, these are all bargains compared to the RRP! We've still got plenty of other kits on offer, on our home
  9. Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. I humbly present here some photos of my recently completed A-7A Corsair II, I hope you like them. Of interest in the assembly, I sanded down the raised panel lines on the wings and redid them as recessed (mainly because the contours of flaps and ailerons - and rudder - were also represented as raised panel lines). I scratch-made the refueling probe and its "seat" on the fuselage, the original Revell parts weren't very pretty. Recessed lines of the dive b
  10. We've got several 1/48 aircraft kits that are better than half price! Yes that's right, better than half price! We have the Hobby Boss Su-27 Russian Knights Flanker kit of just over £26,it's RRP is around £55 - if you don't want to use the decals in the box, this is a very cheap way of getting a 1/48 Flanker B - handy if you have aftermarket decals. We also have the Hobby Boss Chinook A and D kits for a few pennies under £40 and they're RRP is £83. In addition we have a home page full of kits and paint sets with 20 - 40% off UK RRP in the categories below 1/350 Hobby Boss
  11. A venerable kit picked up as makeweight in a swap a couple of years back and has been lurking in the stash since. Always near the top but never quite making it. Am taking it easy for a bit so this got promoted as a fun, no hassle build. Built as XG607 on HMS Victorious, 1959 on Blue Jay testing duties. Small serial numbers are missing as dealing with minuscule individual letters and numbers didn’t fit the definition of either “fun” or “no hassle” Decals mainly from generic sheets and scraps
  12. In the 1940s the Admiralty had an idea that rather than land using wheels jets might be able to land on a rubberised sprung deck. Airfix DeHavilland Vampire FB.5 1/72 converted into a Sea Vampire F.21 for landing trials e.g. Again I decided against the tiniest serials and I didn’t have the large VG701 I needed for underwings so that is as far as it is going to get for now
  13. Straightforward out of the boxish build. Only quirk is that XE601 was used for chemical weapons trials from Porton Down. Underwing tanks are modified 230 gallon drop tanks for the simulated spraying of chemical weapons. XE601 would fly at low level and high speed over troops on exercise to test droplet size, dispersal and their reactions to attack and effectiveness and response times for donning protection In hindsight I should have put some white behind the fuselage roundel decals as the stripe shines through but as a fun, easy build it did the job
  14. I was recently(ish) given a built up 1/72 Supermarine Attacker. No idea of what kit it is but seems fairly vintage but decent quality. Frog? Displaying isn’t really my thing and I have a more modern Attacker kit in the stash anyway so… what to do? Fortunately the Attacker fuselage seems to have been repurposed into umpteen prototype or experimental aircraft so there were lots of options to reuse and reshape this. To whit, the Supermarine type 510, Britain’s first swept wing jet aircraft to fly Prebutchery while I compared Mystere wings After initial butchery, tracing of
  15. Hi all This is my latest model completed. Promodeller 1/72 kit. Photo Etched seat belts, everything else out of the box or scratch built. Follow this link for the W.I.P. All critics and comments are very welcome! Cheers

  19. As finished as she is going to get for now. I had planned to do very thin black line decals for the flying surfaces and fuselage break between the cockpit and engine sections but they disintegrated so here is the 1/72 Avro Z.101 as she stands while I contemplate scribing. Derived from the Blue Steel nuclear missile the rocket powered Z.101 was intended to be air dropped by the Vulcan bomber reach mach 3.5 and very high altitude as a test plane. Due to the very high approach speed (200mph) and nose up landing anticipated a parasail recovery and landing was considered. A slightly
  20. In search of a very high speed & altitude research aircraft Avro proposed a cunning plan The Z.101 manned Blue Steel A couple of variations on the theme were proposed including landing by parasail A scaled(ish) drawing and a mix of donated parts and scrounged bits from the scrap box

  22. Two Builds will be attempted… Got to be a tomcat of the famous squadron with a tomcat in its logo! Here is my submission - not built a fujimi kit yet. However because its me it has to be low viz and a line jet. A splash of colour will be provided by having the flaps and slats deployed. This carpena sheet fits the bill perfectly. 1989/1990 jet. Build will have aftermarket weapons, wheels and exhausts. Also Quickboost pilots in seats to go with the wings out and their helmets should add a splash of colour too. Not sure on paint brand. Have the choice of several
  23. 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.

  24. Hunter fans please avert your eyes, this is not going to be pretty I find that an Airfix Hunter in my possession is sans wings and wheels so having also scavenged a tailplane from it for my Supermarine 510 it is entirely lacking in flying surfaces. Enter, stage left. The Hawker P.1091 Still elegant looking but a bit different from the normal Hunter fare Prebutchery and then post a bit of light butchery
  25. Got this in a pile of Amazon freebies for reviewing. Was going to enter into the under a tenner GB as it cost me nothing but figured that it wasn't in the spirit of GB. BRXM Review here Nothing much to speak of, apart from everything fits beautifully, IP decal perfectly matches raised details, nice. Fuel filler and spine landing light not OOB. Gunsight glass was replaced with rounded one after these were taken. Under primer
