  1. Was picking up some guitar related finishing supplies when I noticed a games workshop type place called "Entoyment" across from where I was parked. Popped and saw its was a good place for for paints , wet palletes etc. The kits were games workshop type dungeons and dragons affairs that don't call to me, but there was a small pile of aircraft kits and I picked this is up for a quick build and practice doing 1/72 mottling: Nothing much to shout about, I've built the 262, He-62 and 109E3 from this quick build series with good results. That said the prop looks unusual
  2. This one never made it to the stash but instead was joined at the bench by these references I've had for many years Sadly the HobbyBoss kit could have been better. A poor copy of the Italeri one at best with a few extra errors added for 'good' measure. I'll try to discuss these while working through them but since it's a tradition let's start in the cockpit... Here's what comes in the box Which is wrong and needed a bit of work to sort out As well as creating a rear bulkhead and shelf the cockpit tub has b
  3. Will appear here when I pay @BlackMike Models for it lol

    1/72 MS 406

    Looking more like a Sea Vampire than the Cyber Dragobby offering. Not many parts but a bit of clean up and scratching needed along the way. Canopy is devoid of any framing so masking areas in as near as dammit way. Yes that is dried blood and a plaster on my finger and I'm not even doing a 190.
  5. Got this pile as freebies to review for my Amazon Vine reviews membership, so its both the Hokeyboss kits as they list for under a tenner on the big H: Forgot sprue shots but as this is a quick build kit, trust me you're not missing anything,. The lower fuselage and complete wing is one big bit onto which the nicely detailed top fuselage clicks onto with large gaps as the filler shows. Did a pilot and scratched a better sight with reflector glass and lens. IP decal is from an Airfix 109, no sidewall detail to speak of. Need to wizz up some canopy mask
  6. Something different for me, but nice simple kit Amazingly it starts with the cockpit Seems to have painted up quite nicely. Peter

    Number 7 for the year so far is the insectoid Fieseler Storch. Nice kit, the only let down being the transparencies which are not the best moulded clear parts I've ever used, and a pain to fair in to the fuselage. Paints are from Gunze for a change, as they had the correct RLM colours, but I've painted it up as a modern restored warbird. The painting guide from HobbyBoss was woefully inadequate, so I had to use a lot of online reference for the camo scheme, and that's where I got my inspiration to do a modern representation. Walk around first:
  8. Started today, the old Tristar kit in the Hobbyboss box Work starts with the two sets of road wheels - steel rimmed for the front and rubber rimmed for the rear. I've left off the rubber rims at the moment - they can go on after paint Then on with the bogeys Then finally for the day, the drive sprockets This is a typical Tristar kit, a lot like Bronco - lots of detail, and tiny pieces but everything so far fit's really well. Peter
  9. We have Very Fire Model's latest detail-up set available on pre-order now: USS Alaska CB-1 in 1/350 scale for £185 https://www.sovereignhobbies.co.uk/collections/1-350/products/vf350006-very-fire-model-1-350-uss-alaska-cb-1
  10. Actually started this last week, but had a bit of a disaster with the kit seats, managing to spill glue all over them so I ended up with some Pavla Resin replacements So this morning - basic blocking out of the seats Then weathering with oils and finishing off Peter
  11. Finished this yesterday, took the final photos today in daylight. I like this kit - you get a lot for your money, though a few bits of the engineering could be better (specifically the engine / nose panels being in clear). Painted with Mr Color laquer paints (which I love), and weathered with Oils. Decals got damp and didn't play, so used home made masks for all the markings apart from the slogan which was hand painted, and I apologise in advance if the spelling / sentiment is wrong. Wip is available here
  12. Started the Hobbyboss 1/32nd IL-2M Sturmovik. Unsurprisingly starts with the cockpit Then slotted the bulkhead in place with the seat, but still need to add the belts and weather down later Peter
  13. The Hobby Boss 1/48 scale Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker B and Mig 31 Foxhound have just arrived and they are huge! I'm just blown away by the size and parts count of these kits. They really are great value for money and I can see one of these in my building pile very shortly. For more details head over to the website.

  14. Soviet BA-10 Armoured Car The BA-10 (Russian: Broneavtomobil 10) was an armored car developed in the Soviet Union in 1938 and produced till 1941. It was the most produced Soviet pre-1941 heavy armored car – 3311 were built in three versions. These versions were the BA-10, the BA-10M (improved version with new radio), and the BA-10ZhD (equipped for dual railway/road use). The basic BA-10 design was developed from the BA-3 and BA-6 heavy armored cars. It had an improved GAZ-AAA chassis and improved armor (up to 15mm at front and turret). It was intended that the BA-10 would be replaced i
