  1. The Type 87 Self-propelled Anti-aircraft Gun is a Japanese air defence weapon built around the Oerlikon 35 mm twin cannon system as used on the Gepard self-propelled anti-aircraft gun. The system uses a modified Type 74 tank chassis. It is also nicknamed by field officers as "Guntank" after the similar-looking mecha in the Mobile Suit Gundam series.
  2. IBG Models Focke Wulf FW 190D-15 Torpedo Bomber 1:72 scale , Part no. 72540History, I'll skip the potted history as the FW 190 is one of the best known fighters from WW2. Suffice to say that the D series turned into probably the best versions of the aircraft one the inline Jumo 213 engine was put into the aircraft, much to the initial horror of fighter pilots who couldn't believe that a bomber engine was being used to power a fighter, nevertheless the Dora's became probably the mest medium level german fighter of the war (performance really dropped off above 20,000ft) the D-
  3. Having accumulated a few 1/72 Tempests their construction shall be collectively gathered into this thread. My collection thus far comprises of: 1 x Academy MkV (WIP) 1 x Airfix MkV 2 x KP MkII 1 x KP MkVI
  4. This has apprently been in the works for a while but the box art has been updated as it is topical. Announcement on the IBG Facebook page: We would like to present one of our news for 2022 - the Ukrainian BTR-4E in 1/72 scale! When the work on this model started around 1,5 year ago we didn't even consider that Russian army might invade Ukraine and that we'll be finishing the work on the model while watching shocking reports from the frontline... We fully support our Ukrainian friends in this fight, when the kit is ready and comes out in June/July we would like to donate part of the pro
  5. Now Luft '46 isn't really my bag but as a nod to a departed modeller I'm prepared to make an exception. I'll add these to my range with a decent wedge from each sale going to the Midlands Air ambulance. Thinking a fiver a pop So... looks pretty straight forward http://www.luft46.com/heinkel/helerche.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinkel_Lerche Anyone have any better references or drawings?
  6. A bit more than a year since the bench, stash and tools all went off in a truck into storage and while I’ve been busy printing for other modellers I’ve not actually made one of my own kits yet. It’s probably long past time to remedy that Barest possible set up of a multitool, stanley knife, sandpaper and superglue to start with (I’ll try and get some filler and paint this week) The parts (I could have sworn there was a pitot in there a moment ago) Removed from supports with two breakages (the lack of side snips is being sorely felt) First bits of fuselage bein
  7. For some this lock-down was a good reason to build more models than ever before. For me was a disaster! I totally lost my motivation. Started many, finished none! I hope this one is the turning point. I intentionally selected a model that has not cost me a fortune, so if the lock-down depression hits me again, I will not hesitate to send it to its first real flight out of the window... Leftovers from PE sets have been used to add some more realism. I tried to put more effort on painting and less into adding more details
  8. Please read carefully! All the kits are complete and unstarted. Payment by Paypal only. UK post is £3.75 for kits under £20 and £4.75 (tracked) for kits over £20. Tracked airmail is a lot more.

  9. 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'
  10. I've previously drawn up a basic digital model of the Miles M.52 - scaled at 1/72. Nothing very fancy but the overall shape is there. My 3D printer is a pretty basic (<£200) machine which doesn't really deal well with small detail so I had that in mind. Plan now is to take this design, refine and add detail s suitable for running off on a more sophisticated resin 3D printer which would be able to cope with fine surface details and undercarriage. So... as a first post here is the start point of my old model The digital drawing: First go at a kit of parts: With th
  11. This is an RF-4ETM from 173 Filo 'Safak', in the then new disruptive camouflage scheme. This particular aircraft was shot down by Syrian air defences above the East Mediterranean on June 22nd, 2012. Basic kit is the Revell RF-4E because I could get one, and reviews suggest it is a decent compromise between accuracy, detail and ease of construction; better than the Italeri and a fraction of the price of the much better Hasegawa. Research suggests the ETM upgrades were largely internal to do with systems and electronics so I should be OK with the basic kit if we agree to ignore the instrume
  12. I was browsing the interwebs as you do, looking for something and I came across an interesting image. That lead to a specific Google which gave me a little more info and then a search of the Big H which told me the whole project was feasible. This is what I'll be doing, an F6F-5 of the post WW2 Uruguayan Navy: Uruguayan F6F-5 I'll use the Eduard Weekend kit, as everything I've read tells me it's a good one: We have sprues. There are enough spare parts to make sure I can get things wrong several times over (three engine cowls and two sets of tyres - and that's if I don't mix and
  13. Gannet Scale Models Miles M52 1/72 Scale The story of the Miles M52 aircraft is an intriguing tale of what might have been. In September 1946, The Engineer published a feature based on details that had recently been released by the Ministry of Defence. Just a few months earlier, the British government had cancelled the programme due to budget constraints, despite the design of the supersonic research aircraft being almost complete, and the construction of the first of three prototypes well underway. Miles Aircraft of Reading had been tasked with building the turbojet-powe
  14. If anyone is interested we've got just 1 of Airfix's new tool 1/72 Vulcans in stock - our price is £51 here's the link to it https://mjwmodels.co.uk/air12011-172-avro-vulcan-b2-7272-p.asp thanks Mike

  16. Got jolly excited and dashed off an order asap for this as the Sh/Eduard looks a bit overengineered for my tastes and sanding off cannon bulges etc from an E-3 is not appealing to the lazy me What I received this morning was this: If fact all the vendors are labelling this as a Messerschmitt Bf-109E-1/4/7 but the actual contents are their E-3 with cannon wings and both types of canopy as the box art suggests so caveat emptor or wait for the SH/Eduard as I should have done. That said the kits are lovely with nice stencils and lots of spares, even separate armoured
  17. Airfix Bristol Beaufort 1/72 The Type 152 Beaufort was a product of the Bristol Aircraft Co to a pre-war spec. for a twin engine aircraft capable of launching a torpedo. Superficially similar to the Blenheim, the Beaufort was found wanting due to being underpowered and although something of a mainstay with Coastal Command, aircrews did well to survive a tour of ops flying them. The notable aviation author and historian Roy C. Nesbit used to run regular articles in Aeroplane Monthly and I found his tales of ops on the Beaufort (and other types) very fascinating. His variously published boo
  18. Hi All, this was a review build for Scale Aircraft Modeller this month I just though I'd show it here as the article says not the easiest build but its done Painted using Gunze paints
  19. Dear chaps and chapesses, I was out for a walk today and having an amble around a local cemetery came across this long row of 21 matching wartime graves. I knew of the crash site generally but not the specifics A flight taking ferry crews out for the return journey sadly crashed on one of the local hills and these are where most of the crew and passengers are laid to rest. https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/25050 There is a display locally about the crash which sadly has a picture of the wrong scheme and mark of Liberator and a Shackleton!? I’d been thinking abou
  20. 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
  21. After all the of limericks and haikus on another thread I was almost tempted to try and do a build thread as a poetic Edda filled with kennings but as it is the middle of the night and my brain is being slow that’ll have to wait for another day (or @Walrus to show me how it is done properly) With the house move being slowed up by the volume of other people also trying to move house this Autumn it looks like it’ll be the new year before we can be on our way. That being the case it seems a shame for my modelling stuff and bench to languish in boxes (& to be honest I’m a bit bored) so...
  22. 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
  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. This is a new project that is in its final completion stage, an all resin airliner kit, I will keep modellers updated on the completion date.
