Posted by pedro.negron on October 23, 2014 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)


Tamiya 1/32 Scale Vought F4U-1A Corsair Kit

 

This is a highly detailed model recreating the F4U-1A variant of the highly popular Corsair model. Newly-designed parts are included in the kit to accurately capture the modifications which distinguish it from the original F4U-1. The F4U-1A drew on the experience of Navy and US Marine Corps pilots' experience with the original aircraft, making modifications to further improve the performance of this legendary bird.

 

This 1/32nd scale model captures the upgraded form of the F4U-1A variant with precision, including the semi-bubble canopy and raised pilot seat. This required newly-designed cockpit interior parts. Details such as new instrumentation panel and console designs are also depicted.


More than 450 parts in grey plastic (plus 11 for the two figures); 49 parts in clear (includes 22 limited edition clear cowl parts); four black plastic pieces; two frets of photo-etched metal; one self-adhesive metallic name plate; a self-adhesive masking sheet; two vinyl tyres; two metal rods; one screw; one nut; one small screwdriver; one poly cap; two decal sheets with markings for three schemes.

1:32 Dornier Do-335 B-2 from Hong Kong Models

Posted by pedro.negron on May 16, 2014 at 12:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Coming very soon (hopefully for IPMS VIRGINIA NATIONALS) a incredible new version of the formidable plane that didn't make it (thank's God) to fight in WWII, the Dornier Do-335 "ARROW" version B-2. Hong Kong Models rise the standards of building planes in 1:32 when they brought us the B-17 Flying Fortress and the B25 Mitchell. We can't expect less of this  new beauty. 

The Dornier Do-335 is not a new theme in modelling, but is new in this scale, so what we can expect? Well, for starters a recounting of rivets!, highly detailed cockpit compartment, engine, landing bay, etc.  Here are some picture to see the quality of this work. 






Dornier Do-335 "Arrow"

The Dornier Do 335 was a fighter aircraft of the German Luftwaffe during World War II. Developed by Dornier aircraft had unusually, each a motor front and rear. The aircraft was the fastest piston engine-powered aircraft in the world at the time of its first flight in 1943. The Dornier 335 took no more active part in the hostilities in World War II in part. By the end of the war, only 28 machines of the pre-series (A-0) and 11 of the first production aircraft (A-1) were completed. 50 more machines were already in an advanced stage of construction.

 

Of the planned B-2 series (Destroyer variant), there were two prototypes M13 (W-Nr. 230013) and M14 (W-Nr. 230014). These machines possessed also has two MK 103 automatic cannon in the wings, and a new and reinforced windscreen of the cockpit hood.

 

The Do 335 was with her unusual drive a top speed of 730 - reach 770 km / h (depending on version). Another special feature of the aircraft was the ejector seat. The aircraft was officially called the "Arrow" because of their long nose and the long-legged chassis design.

 

Scale: 1:32

 

Wingspan: about 431mm

 

Length: about 443mm

 

Features of the B-2 variant as modified cockpit glazing and MK-103 machine guns in the wings and a reinforced chassis bug

 

Two variants of building land:

M13 (W-Nr. 230013 - ID RP + UP) - Optional vergößerter wing surface to 41m ²

M14 (W-Nr. 230014 - ID RP + UQ)

1/16 Sopwith Camel F1 WWI from Hasegawa

Posted by pedro.negron on April 3, 2014 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)


LOOK AT WHAT HASEGAWA Sopwith Camel ! Its huge 1/16!

The Sopwith Camel was first flown by the Royal Naval Air Service's No. 4 Squadron in June 1917. A late addition to Britain's World War I arsenal, the Camel proved to be a formidable foe against Germany's Albatros. It was highly maneuverable and incredibly fast, so it was a perfect choice for nighttime air raids. Today, the Sopwith Camel remains one of WWI's most iconic aircraft. This structure model kit features new tooling, museum-quality details, all-plastic construction, silver metal-plated cowl parts, functional rudder and flap parts and realistic rubber tires.

1/32 Revell Germany Messerschmitt Bf109 G-10 Erly #04888

Posted by pedro.negron on March 6, 2014 at 12:25 AM Comments comments (0)

Product ID: 80-4888

Overview

Skill level: 5

Scale: 1:32

Length: 284 mm

Wingspan: 310 mm

Parts: 147

Description

Top pilot of all time

 

Erich "Bubi" Hartmann shot down 352 enemy aircraft. He was, is and most likely always will be the top scoring fighter ace of all time. His plane's famed livery, with the black petals streaking back from the prop, was so feared that Soviet pilots would avoid conflicts with him at all costs. The intense power of the Bf 109 favored his quick strike tactics, allowing him to strike and be gone before Russian planes could react. Kit features lots of details and options plus decals for two of Hartmann's aircraft.

Detailed flight deck

Detailed main cabin with five supplemental fuel cells on mounts and one supplemental oil tank mounted to the deck

Detailed aft compartment

Positionable flaps

Positionable ailerons

Positionable elevators

Positionable rudder

Positionable landing gear

Movable forward dorsal turret

Can be armed with three torpedoes (included)

Markings are included for two examples:

 

Fw 200C-3, W.Nr.0099, KE+IX, Germany

Fw 200C-3, W.Nr.0034, ex F8+GW, in Soviet service








they are good reviews on this particular one, having already the venerable Revell version. You may take a look:
