New arrivals this week.

Although I’m trying to avoid buying kits I actually added two more to the stash because I am weak; Even though my interest in WW2 German stuff is waning the Tamiya Kettenkrad was put to the top of the wanted list when it was announced as I liked the fact Tamiya had based the figuresContinue reading “New arrivals this week.”

How I spent a Saturday afternoon…

By being quite busy actually! I got an old Matchbox 1/72 English Electric Lightning F.6 out of a box with my other ‘to-do’ stuff with a view to spraying it with Tamiya AS-11. Unfortunately it (A) started raining and (B) I noticed gaps in the wing roots so these were filled with Milliput, smoothed outContinue reading “How I spent a Saturday afternoon…”

Hasegawa 1/72 CV-22B Osprey

Work is progressing slowly but it’s getting there. Before gluing the upper fuselage in place and engine nacelles together I blanked off the insides with black plastic sheet then sprayed the interiors black so that you couldn’t see through to the cabin windows; Before spraying the upper fuselage I added a small square hole eitherContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 CV-22B Osprey”

Hasegawa 1/72 CV-22B Osprey

Before the decal session on the ICM 1/48 O-2A I made a bit more progress on the Osprey.

Fit of parts was pretty good so far, the only gripe being the gaps around the tail andContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 CV-22B Osprey”

ICM 1/48 O-2A late production

I was ALMOST at the end of this one but when putting the decals on tonight, one of the red circles decided it wasn’t playing; Once I got it on the model it just would not move into position. I probably compounded it by applying Micro Sol to loosen the decal but it just seemedContinue reading “ICM 1/48 O-2A late production”

Hasegawa 1/72 CV-22B Osprey

I’ve added some more bits to the model tonight including the RWR’s (Radar Warning Receivers) on each side of the forward fuselage; The rear fuselage resembles a ‘mock-Tudor’ style building with the addition of plastic strip; This is to represent the strengthening strips that are seen on the reference pics that I found. They lookContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 CV-22B Osprey”

Hasegawa MV-22 Osprey

Soooooo…….I didn’t MEAN to start this one, all I was doing was having a look at what was needed to turn into a USAF CV-22B Osprey as although sprue J in the airforce version of this kit provides some of the external bits, there has been some changes since that kit came out a fewContinue reading “Hasegawa MV-22 Osprey”
