Modelling Projects / Ka15 ambulance
« on: September 07, 2021, 01:26:00 PM »
Next project. Kamov Ka15 ambulance produced by Amodel in 1/72nd scale.
It's the usual Amodel short run soft plastic; a bit fiddly.

Modelling Projects / Cheyenne
« on: August 10, 2021, 07:41:52 PM »
This is my next project - the Lockheed AH56A Cheyenne - first flight Sept. 1967. I think 10 of them were built and the project died in 1973.
The kit is 1/72nd scale by Miku in resin with some etched brass. This will be a slow build.

General Discussion / Website modifications

Are the modifications to the website complete yet?
I get an oddity with respect to too many images across the top banner which then compresses the main web page.

Modelling Projects / Westland Wessex

This is the Italeri as you can see. I think I will be doing the HC2 RAF version even though it's labelled as an HU5.
End box for those that are interested.

Modelling Projects / Lynx HAS3
« on: May 06, 2021, 03:11:22 PM »
Contrary to what it says on the box this is the reboxed Lynx HAS2 with new decals. This will be modified into the HAS3 using the Airwaves conversion kits shown (new orange crop radar sensors, BERP blades and Seaskua missiles).

Modelling Projects / Top Gun's Mil Mi-14PL
« on: April 08, 2021, 04:06:32 PM »
Here is my next project. I am waiting to go to Halfords on Monday for some white paint for the Sea King.
Anyway I think this one will be quite a challenge - all resin parts and plenty of them.

Modelling Projects / Hughes MD500D
« on: March 25, 2021, 03:23:36 PM »
This is a Profiline 1/72nd model. The mouldings are very clean. I'll be building the one on the box.

Modelling Projects / Another Seaking
« on: March 11, 2021, 03:04:37 PM »
Next one from the stash to do. Can't have enough Seakings.

Modelling Projects / F35B
« on: March 03, 2021, 01:51:06 PM »
And now for something a bit different. This arrived last Christmas.

Modelling Projects / Mil mi-4 with floats
« on: February 02, 2021, 02:44:50 PM »
Just started this. Having done a little research I can't find any photos of this beast. One photo I did find had different floats so this may have been a special Polish version ( I base that on the fact that the kit is Polish ). The chin radar and all the other fuselage additions appear to be authentic.
Mouldings are not bad - I think it is quite an old kit - don't when I bought it.
Cockpit interior minimal and added some detail.

Modelling Projects / Marines AH-1G Cobra
« on: January 17, 2021, 01:22:21 PM »
Thought I'd get another one started while waiting for the Ocean Hawk's glazing to cure.
The is a Special Hobby 1/72nd kit. They produced a whole raft of Cobras a few years ago. All the same sprues generally but with different instruction booklets.

Modelling Projects / AS 365 Panther
« on: January 13, 2021, 03:02:26 PM »
About to start this. 1/72nd scale DreamModel; first one of this manufacturer to make. The mouldings look good with some resin and brass.

Modelling Projects / Ocean Hawk
« on: December 26, 2020, 01:19:05 PM »
This is going to be an SH-60F Ocean Hawk using the Hawkeye Models conversion kit. I'll be using a Hasegawa SH-60B for the donor kit.

Modelling Projects / Kamov Ka126
« on: December 19, 2020, 02:02:54 PM »
This is the next one from the stash - an Amodel kit.

Modelling Projects / Westland Lynx AH7
« on: November 26, 2020, 01:55:02 PM »
This is a conversion kit from Air Graphic Models using the Airfix Lynx as the donor aircraft.
I think this ma y be a slow build. Plenty of resin parts for the conversion and the detail looks good.
