ICM 1/35 Model T 1917 Ambulance (early)

I got this the other day from ICM in the Ukraine so that I could do a build review for The Modelling News; Today I made a start on it even though I have five other things on the go; This was after only a couple of hours work, any seam lines such as thoseContinue reading “ICM 1/35 Model T 1917 Ambulance (early)”

Fujimi and Hobbyboss 1/72 A-7 Corsair II’s

I finally got the decals on this week and today I put a dark brown pin wash on both models to bring out the detail; I wasn’t too happy with the quality of the Superscale decals as the white on the drop-shadow LV tailcode and 4450 TG number was poorly printed. I did have aContinue reading “Fujimi and Hobbyboss 1/72 A-7 Corsair II’s”

Hobbyboss 1/72 A-7K Corsair II

I got the decals on the two-seater this evening and they went on very well with no issues considering the age of the two Microscale sheets I used; As you can see it actually took decals from four sheets to finally get this particular aircraft, the Microscale sheets provided the numbers and stencils, the AirdocContinue reading “Hobbyboss 1/72 A-7K Corsair II”

Fujimi and Hobbyboss 1/72 A-7 Corsair II’s

That the gear bays, gear bay doors, landing gear, wheels and avionics bays sprayed and the masking removed. For a change I didn’t get any overspray on other parts of the models that didn’t have masking tape either; Now I can get on with putting the decals on and with a bit of luck getContinue reading “Fujimi and Hobbyboss 1/72 A-7 Corsair II’s”

Fujimi and Hobbyboss 1/72 A-7 Corsair II’s

While I’m waiting for the filler to set on the Revell Dornier 28, I masked off the wheel wells and gear bay doors on both A-7’s (along with both open avionics bays on the Hobbyboss A-7K). The wheel centres, gear, gear bays and doors will all be sprayed white, the avionic bays and doors onContinue reading “Fujimi and Hobbyboss 1/72 A-7 Corsair II’s”

Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2

The fuselage has been glued together and most of the extra work in the cabin is now hidden but at least I know it’s there lol. As you can see, the fuselage required a lot of filler for as well as the poor fuselage joint there are sink marks in four places so that willContinue reading “Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2”

Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2

I think that will do for painting the cockpit and cabin, I just need to stick the cabin windows in then I can get the fuselage closed up; The kit decal for the instrument doesn’t look that bad really and for what you will be able to see through the windscreen it’s enough…in fact forContinue reading “Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2”

Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2

I’ve finished scratchbuilding the cockpit and cabin as with the cabin doors shut you won’t see much of the inside once it is painted; Although I lined the inside of the fuselage with 0.005thou plastic sheet, I also made a partial roof for the cabin to hide where the wings fit. What very few interiorContinue reading “Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2”

Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2

Gawwwd this is basic….anyhow I’ve made a new instrument panel and centre console as the kit supplied items are dismal; After some work tonight, this is where I’m at so far; Because of the holes in the fuselage where the wings and engine pods locate, I decided to line the insides with 0.005thou (0.35mm) plasticContinue reading “Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2”
