Batman, scooter and the skynight.  Sounds like a superhero movie!  Whats the story with the gray batmobile?

 

EDIT: just realized thats a Futura not the batmobile.  But it was the base for the batmobile no?

Thanks,

John

Nice to see armor, planes, cars - and lots of skill.

Some great work shown and cool subjects.

Thanks to this site, I have been joining group builds which I have actually completed more models in six months than what normally would take me two years.  

Roden 1/32 SE5 kit, this kit tried my patience, but I learned a lot.

Keavdog  and everyone else .

 you are correct .The " Batmobile " was once one of the most loved in the "FORD" " Cars Of Tomorrow Exhibit "  ! It was also in a Movie with Glen Ford . A long time ago . It fell on hard times , was sold to Barris , sat in front of his shop for a few years then became the Base for that totally distasteful remake to the Batmobile .

 I always thought , like the FORD LEVA Car , that it belonged in MOMA for what it foretold in auto design . All I can say is after I got mine at Kresge's ( I bought two )For 98 cents  each . I got three more as gifts from relatives .It really must've hit a chord with the grown-ups cause my LHS couldn't keep them in and all the buyers were adults ! That along with the Pontiac Club De Mer were some of his top movers . Along with  the FORD Country Squire in 1/25 scale  . All these by REVELL .

 Now the originals command ridiculous prices on the collecters market ! If you can find them .

    Now , I have to say . After all these gorgeous models ( The 57 and Tweety ) and all else . I am overwhelmed and Ashamed . I lost all postable stuff and am starting over , be patient please ?

I just make them up on paint.net and transfer them to office to then print them off on some card. The flags and badges were just downloaded and then resized and i have downloaded different fonts, such as USAF, RAF, Army, German and so on.

I saw a couple of other guys doing somthing similar a few years back and so just adopted it to what i wanted.

Thanks. I've wanted to own a Scout for as long as I can remember. I live in an old IH town, and you still see Scouts here. If I ever hit the lottery...

This particular one caused me quite a bit of headaches, as the color I wanted was from Humbrol, but I discovered the hard way it didn't play well with my thinner. I am happy with the final result though. Since that picture was taken, the antenna managed to get broken and has been replaced with a piece of guitar string, something I will do as a matter of course in the future. Just a better scale look in my opinion.

The picture is better on that one, because I was using my old Canon digital camera, which unfortunately seems to have died very recently. It served me well, making multiple long distance trips and surviving through deployment to Kuwait, among other fun things. The other two were taken with my phone's camera. I may be able to get some better pics from it with better lighting, but I do want to upgrade to a DSLR.
 
As to subject matter, I agree with you, and I look for things that catch my eye. That explains why my stash has so much variety!

Thanks. I was just looking for a bright 'kick winter in the tail' scheme suggestive of rum and tropical breezes.
 
The real lucky stroke was finding a little cheapo set of 6 Testors acrylics in fluorescent colors, in those little hinged-cap dispensers. The colors were a perfect match for the color photo on the airline's website!

Thanks Steve, my could be better, especially the figures. But as 90% of my builds are dioramas, its hard to leave them out.

Nice work Bish.  Hard to do winter camo on figures and yours look great.  Dig the phantom as well.  Haven't done a sub in years.  Interesting color variations. 

Thanks,

Thanks John. I was a bit woried about doing the winter camo as i had not done it before, but i was pleased with how the uniforms turned out. And the sub i just gloss coated it, then masked and added a clear flat coat just top break up the black finish.

Very nice builds everybody and hope you all had a Merry Christmas.

Some of you all know me to build WWII aircraft but during the last few years I've ventured off into automotive world. Maybe it's my automotive repair and hotrodding roots that resurfaced...I don't know. It took sticking with it for nearly four years till I was comfortable with my automotive finishes but it's sure been alot of fun and I've learned alot along the way.

The first two builds are tribute builds to the 1980's Revell "Street Demons" series:

1956 Ford F-100 "Demon II" built from a Revell Foose kit:

and the '41 Willys Built from the Pro Street kit released in 2001:

and the last one of the year that I built for a friend of my sons (Jonathan) who saw my builds and wanted me to build his '59 AMT El Camino that he got for his birthday this year. My son and I delivered it just in time for Christmas:

Thanks Jay Jay – Alclad 119 is amazing
Ogrejohn – really nice armor!  Really like the Stryker
Gregbale – Sub looks great, cool base.  The Trimotor is beautiful and the SPAD… wow.
GM – nice looking builds of interesting subjects.
Mustang1989 – wow – I think you figured out the whole auto thing.
Crown – glad to see you back online.  I got the buffalo as part of the Secret Santa build – hoping mine turns out ½ as good as your build (though I’m doing a British bird).  Meteor looks great and the easy eight looks really good.
Great builds here!

Thanks,

John

Well here goes nothing. My skills are pretty rusty being away from the hobby so long. It also doesn’t help that I’m still trying to find the sweet spot with my newer airbrush still.
 
1/35 Tamiya Tiger I Early
  
This kit had been hanging around a few years with some missing parts. Thanks to Dragon kits having an abundance of spare parts I was able to source the extra parts from the Dragon kit. This was my second try airbrushing late war German camouflage in six years. It’s a really clean build, just not ready to try out shading and filters as of yet.
 
Takom 1/35 St.Chamond Early
Far from perfect but I’m happy to have it. Originally I started one of these before my hiatus and the half built model got tossed out in a move. Felt the need to finally finish one and glad I need. I went out of my comfort zone and added mud and “attempted” a wash. Learned my lesson to use a gloss coat before doing a wash as it flows much better.
 
Tamiya 1/35 Panzer III Ausf. L
Not much to say about this. I built one of these a few years back and sold it along with many other kits both built and still in the box to a collector to help pay from my father’s funeral. So this is the replacement that I built all those years ago. The tank commander isn’t great still pretty rusty at painting figures.

Lots of great stuff!  Modelcrazy's RAF wing countering Bish's luftwaffe.  Nice armor GreySnake.  Bit a bit slow the start of this year but here's the three latest

Minicraft 1/144 EC-121 from my fathers squadron (553rd recon wing)

This is a 1/48 F4F-4 Wildcat from Tamiya.  Nice kit

This little 1/48 Tamiya F2A/B-339 Buffalo was given to me for last years secret santa exchange.  I tried alclad clear and flat for the first time and while it covered well it was tacky for days and attracted every piece of lint and cat hair - paint is a bit of a mess in that regard but here she is

Edit:  wanted to mention Tamiya panel liner didnt get along with the alclad glosscoat...hence the heavy weathering  

Thanks,

John

I am really impressed with the level of craftsmanship I see in this thread. The finished subjects are second to none.... Here is my meger contribution for my last three.

1/16 Kubelwagen by Tamiya: (Group Build)

The kubel was built mostly out of the box except the fuel line and transmission shifting rod. The tarp rolls were after-market resin. The kit driver was not used and a 4 figure multi-piece resin kit was purchased from the after-market, slightly modified, and detailed with other PE and lead foil straps. 

 

1/350 HMS Roberts by Trumpter: (Group Build)

This was my first ship on over 20 years. I went all-in with the wood on the deck and boats, metal barrels, and countless PE. I gained new respect for boat builders after this one was done.

 

1/35 Swedish MBT103-S Tank by Trumpter. (Group Build)

The Swedish splinter camouflage scheme was painted freehand with a hairy stick. Just wanted to see if I could pull it off versus buying the masks and using the AB.

 

1/48 Apollo 11 "Eagle" Lunar Lander by Monogram: (Group Build)

Adding a 4th as it was being finished near the same time as the MBT-103. Other than the actual leg post and foot, all of the decent module was scratch built (kit parts were lost). In kind, much of the acent module was modified for accuracy based on many sources. The lunar surface came with the kit, but the two astronauts were also after-market (lost too). The lunar test equipment was all modified based on photos of the actual items.

As I said before, the skills shown in this thread are simply fantastic! Great job EVERYONE!

Those 144 kits are just getting beyond nice, saw a couple of Spits a while back and the pits (what you could see of them) were amazing. Lovely looking Sea King, take away the penny and you would swear it was bigger.

Thanks, and I couldn't agree more about the new crop of 1/144 kits available.

I love the Sweet Sea Kings...I've built a handful of them...but the new-tool AFV Club versions in the same scale are even more impressive, with better and more complete detail. I've got some (they come two complete kits to the box), but I haven't started them yet: I wanted to 'clear the decks' of the last (at least for the moment) Sweet version in my 'warehouse.'

Frank, dig the clippers.  Frankenpanzer, I have to try one of those toon tanks and the AF MP car is awesome.  Never seen that subject built.  What did you start with and where did you source the decals fromlm?

 

This is a replica of a U2 chase plane from the 1990's. 

The base kit is the Revell 1/25th scale 1990 Ford Mustang LX. 

My inspiration.

Since that photo was taken I have spoken to retired Air Force friends who confirmed the shape of the antenna. I carved it from a piece of sheet plastic to obtain the airfoil shape.  

I found a sheet of "US Air Force" markings in various sizes. Don't ask from where, I cannot remember. LOL! I picked one that looked correct. The serial number is strictly fiction and from the same sheet.

Really nice stuff dlh.   Interesting subjects and well executed.

Crown, cool little bike with the tiger.  The sea fury is my favorite British plane.  All nicely done, really like the liberator in that scheme. 

Thanks,

Usually I model airplanes. However, sometimes I get burned out building airplanes. When that happens I model cars. My last three builds are a 1/48 Monogram B-24J in Bare Metal Foil and a 1/48 HobbyBoss P-38 in Bare Metal Foil. In between those two builds I built a 1/24 scale hot rod.

Thanks for the comment regarding the BMF. The P-38 is my eighth model finished in BMF. The wheels on the car came with the kit, a '37 Ford coupe. I looked on Revell's website and they have very few car models.

A T-33A of the Florida Air National Guard. An old AMT/Hasegawa 1/72 scale kit.

An F-106 as it appeared in the 1972 Willian Tell event. Again, an old Hasegawa kit.

The drones were used a lot for testing the early AAM's, both free flight and guided. That's a situation where a piloted tow aircraft was just too risky.

The only problem I had with it was attaching the wings. The entire wing, which is quite heavy, sits on 4 small struts in front of the pilot. The other struts on the side don't provide any support. There are 2 N shape struts that connect these two struts to the wing and they are very flimsy and they both broke as I was cutting them of the sprue. Managed to glue them together but they didn't fit at all. The machinegun is attached to the sprue at 3 places and it broke at those three places very easily. Other that that, it is a good model to build.

There are some WIP photos in the "eyes in the sky" GB. The kit is by ICM.

Cheers.

Some very impressive work going on in this thread. I haven't posted anything in quite some time so I guess I'd better get on the ball.

I don't move particularly fast with my builds but I did manage to get three finished this year. The Arado 234 took 3 years to build . It was one of the most difficult builds that I've completed to date.

 

Completed in March---AMT C1500 454SS:

Completed in July--Arado 234 "Blitz":

Completed a few days ago--General Lee....ish Charger:

John, those are 3 very nice looking gbuilds.

I can't see Steve's at the minute, will check those out tonight. But i know his water builds are top notch. I have a German amphibious tank i want to going into a river, so i am keen on ideas on how to do the splashing water.

John, Hmm, I'd have to give that one some thought....It might involve resin.

Bish, here is my PT-76 in a river I made in 2018, it may give you some ideas. My techniques have changed some since.

Just got round to checking Steves out, impressive water effects once again Steve. And as much as it pains me to say it about an Imperial vehicle, thats very nice. If only i could do that to a Spitfire.

As some of you know, I have just joined the forums in the last week or so.  Having just got back into model building, I don't have 3 "last models" to share, but here's my first attempt at it after a break of many years.  Nowhere near the caliber of most of the models here, but for my first try after being away so long, I was happy with it.  Just trying to learn all the new things out there WRT paint these days.  Thank goodness for forums like this, and you tube!  So without further adooo, here's my 1/72 Hawk SBD Dauntless....

Thanks John. I finished the BTR last spring/summer, so it’s been awhile. The X-Wing in late Fall when I was going stir crazy at having all my stash aNd supplies pretty much packed to move. All my other builds last year were armor, so that’s why I kicked off this year with the A-7.

I can remember just two of the last models I attempted to build back in the late 80's before I stopped building them.

  • 1:35 LAV-25 Piranha
  • 1/18 Scale APC Vehicle (Aliens)

I remeber melting a long section of the plastic tree in order to create the long antennas for the LAV

Templar - is that an Opal Blitz?  Built a 1/72 version ages ago.  Very nice.  I've always thought the BMP was a cool looking vehichle nice work.  And man, that Olympia has seen better days ;)  Really nice work on the heavy weathering

Mark - Seaview looks super - really like the base.  That voyager probe is on my wish list and it looks like you got the PE kit as well - fantastic.

John

Sorry Dog don't know about the Blitz. The Olympia was a attempt to copy a sculpture of it that I saw in Ca. Just hit me as a static object subjected to time.It's posted. Thanks for the comments.
