  1. Hi all. In the 3rd installment of Vaastav's T-series in India, we have the T-72A which was operated by our army for some time before we upgraded. They saw quite a bit of action as they participated in UNPKF operations in Somalia and Congo as well as in Sri Lanka during Op Pawan as part of the IPKF. I am as yet undecided about exactly which scheme I'll do, but let's see as the build progresses. The box art. The box itself is the same length and breadth as the T-90, but is taller. Inside, there is a smaller box with some of the smaller/more delicate sprues. There are enough parts in
  2. Good evening ladies and gentlemen, today on the second installment of Vaastav's Indian tanks (and stuff) is Trumpeter's Indian T-90S known as Bhishma. This particular boxing shows the older model with cast turret (the newer ones have welded turrets) I intend to do this one in parade dress as well, like the T-72, link for which can be found here. These are older models (cast turret) and roughly the scheme I will do. Onto the kit The box is top opening (nice) and the box art is well done. Upon opening the box, one is greeted by a busy scene. T
  3. So i did this as a pre-empt into building the rather lovely Great Wall Hobby SU35S as I wanted to practice a few bits and pieces before I did and for the most part get where i wanted to get where i wanted, I still need to get the engine sections right and that will be the next one. the Trumpeter kit is a peach of a build (i'm not sure how accurate it is, It looks like a two seat flanker to me) I bought the Kit when Richard @RWG686 was having his stash clear out along with the Zvezda SU27 SM I now have a slight addiction to these aircraft oops

    My First Jet

    Hi all, now that the July issue of Airfix Model World has finished selling, I can finally show you this... Last year whilst on holiday in Australia, I finally managed to get a jet in my flying log book. It's an L-39C Albatros belonging to a company at Archerfield Airport in Brisbane, and I managed to hire it for a while along with a pilot to keep an eye on it while I played with it. Returning home, I built a copy of it as a keepsake, using the Trumpeter 1/48 kit as a base, but incorporating scratch built parts, self made decals, and masks for some of the markings cut by my mate Nig
  5. Evenin all... Well how about something a bit different and just a smooch bigger than 1/48th 😬 This has been hanging around for a while, since 2008 actually. I was going thru a rough time with my divorce and wotnot, and i wanted a cheer me up.These were just released so why not go big😬 This was at the time when i didnt have an airbrush, (nearly all my AFV's were hand painted) and I made a valiant start on it, but to be honest, its a big bugger and its a mission to use even big hairy sticks (never really used rattle cans on tanks, dunno why) and of course my head was not in a go
  6. Due to unprecidented democratic will, next up With Verlinden Cockpit set Aires Electronics Bay Assembled the resin parts before priming - checked they actually appear to fit without surgery (beyond removing a locating tab) Then painted up - the Ammo Clear on the dials is still drying so not quite clear. Used airscale decals for the dials, which looks lovely, but is a real pain to do. Peter

    Sea Fury

    Hello all, I'm back. Did you miss me? I've been unable to show anything new since about last August as I've been busy building stuff that can't be shown before publication. Just finished something for myself though, the Trumpeter 1/48 Sea Fury. Yes I know it's got a lot of inaccuracies, but I wanted something basic after all the super detailed stuff I've been doing lately. Here it is... Cheers, Dean
  8. Trumpeter 1/32nd P-47D Kit with the Eduard Etch for the cockpit and seatbelts and Montex Masks for the markings (mix of decals). Really enjoyed this, second big Jug from trumpeter and it's a pretty good kit. The cockpit does need the help, and all the ducting is never seen again, but no major vices and ends up pretty nice. Painted with Mr Hobby Colour / Aqueous Color and Tamiya thinned with Mr Levelling thinner, and weathered with Oils and pigments. Peter
  9. Not a bad model from Trumpeter, but definitely one that can be improved upon. The nice things about the kit are; adequate detail in the cockpit with photo etch seat belts, lots of weapons with clear inserts for guided weapons seeker heads, plenty of detail if you want to leave panels open and a nice decal sheet. Metal undercarriage legs are also included along with plastic. Shortcoming of the kit are; difficult to eliminate seam in the engine air intakes and exhaust (unless you use covers like me). Trumpeter completely forgot to include the outer hard points for the air to air missile
  10. Started this last weekend, with a couple of extras Montex Masks Eduard Cockpit Etch Eduard Belts Assembled the cockpit, and weathered it down Peter
  11. 1/48 de Havilland DH.110 Sea Vixen FAW.2 Trumpeter Catalogue # 05808 The de Havilland DH.110 Sea Vixen is a British twin-engine, twin boom-tailed, two-seat jet fighter flown by the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm during the 1950s through the early 1970s. The Sea Vixen was designed by the de Havilland Aircraft Company during the late 1940s at its aircraft factory in Hatfield, Hertfordshire. It was developed from an earlier first-generation jet fighter, and the Sea Vixen was a carrier-based fleet air-defence fighter that served into the 1970s. Initially produced by
  12. 1:48 Fairey Firefly Mk.1 Trumpeter Catalogue # 05810 The Fairey Firefly was a British Second World War-era carrier-borne fighter aircraft and anti-submarine aircraft of the Fleet Air Arm (FAA). Designed to the contemporary FAA concept of a two-seat fleet reconnaissance/fighter, the pilot and navigator/weapons officer were housed in separate stations. It was superior in performance and firepower to its predecessor, the Fulmar, but entered operational service only towards the end of the war when it was no longer competitive as a fighter. The limitations of a single e
  13. I started this kit in 2014. It's actually the reason I was put in touch with White Ensign Models' liquidator - I had just bought the kit from WEM but was going to buy the paint later, then they announced they had ceased trading a week later! I've never run any threads on this, just chipping away at it on and off in my own time. Due to WEM's demise I bought Flyhawk's detail-up set and their resin turrets to go with, but ended up needing a WEM set later when they were back in production. The deck is from Pontos Model and that was a liberation from Sovereign stock also. As we all know, I did
  14. Finished today, Built OOB, painted with Mr Color Laquers. Liked this kit, fit mostly really good, the only real niggles the gun bay doors. Peter
  15. The Trumpeter kit isn't too bad. Fit is pretty good, detail adequate and the decals settle own nicely. One negative about the kit is the weapons. You get 3 drop tanks, more than a few Mk 83's, two MER's and two AGM-12's. It's is a little bit limiting as early in Rolling Thunder, thuds normally carried 6 Mk 117 bombs on an MER on the center line mount, but you get no centerline weapons mount either. For aircraft venturing into the more dangerous RP's, a QRC-160 jamming pod and AIM-9B were carried for self defense, neither of these are included. Thus I used Hasegawa weapons sets and scratch buil
  16. This isn't a bad kit, although I believe the conning tower is a bit inaccurate. It makes up into a reasonably sized model that looks pretty good. I decided on a North Korean submarine after seeing some picture of Kimmy boy riding on one. I liked the green top colour, I have no idea what the anti-fowling paint colour was, but a wine red colour seemed plausible enough. I had a bit of fun with weathering, I figured these things would be pretty battered, they are over 50 years old afterall.
  17. Hi all, its time for a winter project so I've picked this beauty, As those who know me are aware, I have a soft spot for MiG 21's and when i saw this for sale at Milton Keynes and couldn't resist. the version I'll be doing will be the box art version. from the North Vietnamese Air force, so i have to do a passable natural metal finish. As i picked up the kit for a reasonable sum £30.00 (i think) i decided to buy a couple of bits for it 1st Eduard steel seat belts and some nice brass parts 1 a pitot tube with etched fins 2, A nice Brass
  18. Trumpeter 1:32 Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat VF-4 USS Ranger (CV-4) Atlantic Early 1942 The Grumman Wildcat began service with the United States Navy in 1940. First used in combat by the British in Europe, the Wildcat was the only effective fighter available to the United States Navy and Marine Corps during the early part of World War II in 1941 and 1942; the disappointing Brewster Buffalo was withdrawn in favor of the Wildcat and replaced as units became available. It had a top speed of 318 mph (512 km/h), the Wildcat was outperformed in the Pacific theatre by the faster 331 mph

  24. Hi all ... It is my firm conviction ... and has been for a LONG time ... that Trumpeter and Hobbyboss have made some outstanding kits. Too be sure, there are PLENTY of goofed up releases ... stories of "over-engineering", "Grand Canyon-styled" panel lines, excessive riveting, accuracy issues (both major and minor) ... Because opinion will always reign supreme in this hobby ... I have made it a point to try to separate opinion from fact at every opportunity while researching which kit to buy ... THANKFULLY, there are some reviewers out there that can still list genuine good and bad aspects
