Only Dutch kit builders know how to strike such deals 😉
well to be honest, I didnt pay anything my dad paid them and just dropped them off at my place...... all kits were missing the decals so that I needed to solve. got most sorted now. but gives me the advantage that I can make any one that I want 🙂
Fifty kits for fifty Euros?! Here I thought I got a good deal once upon a time when I was able to purchase a batch of kits from someone whom typically didn't deal in model kits for $5 USD per engine. XD I built the Airfix Wimpy when I was in middle school and even at that time I wasn't impressed with it. Years later I built the Matchbox kit, I loved how they represented the geodetic construction, and when set side by side you could scarcely imagine that they were the same aircraft type. Of course my skills as a modeler were pretty rough in middle school though so that played a part.
yeah all 1/72, it included, halifax, hampden, lancaster, B50D, stirling, blenheim, beaufigher, marauder, horsa, 4 tempests, 4 mustangs, 4 thunderbolts, typhoon, macchi202, gladiator, 2 p38 lightnings, helldiver, skua, 2 lysanders, val, 2 mig3, seahurricane and some more
but all missing decals and boxes

yeah still need to finetune the tail though, not 100% happy with that but underwing it came out perfect
still happy I painted them, was scared to put a strut thru a decal
Almost done, should I add noseart yes or no? Got loads of nosart in my stash
If it's artistic licence go for it.
yeah got some ideas but will be nose art from other planes 🙂
Looking good 👍
yeah getting there al decals are on now just adding som custom bits I made myselfs
oh, this is looking good!
yeah the hoses on the float bags are looking very good, need to add the cannister covers next, they are drying
Great work Johan, always nice to see a Huey! Especially a Dutch one!! 👍
yeah happy with result so far, still need to cement the doors on and some small details

kingfisher not done yet, and will improve my diorama, this is my first one!
Your first one ? Really ?
first diorama, 10th model.
As Erik said, maybe the Kingfisher should be deeper into the sea ?
Yeah need to do that this is just a start
May 6, 2021
just had a bit too much cockpit green paint from my Tiffy project so started to do the inside of the "coming" project when the kingfisher and AB204 are done.

well the issue wasnt taking it apart, scalpel did that trick, just the fogged up windows due to that noob, now Im going to make the best of it.
Oh, I love restoration projects. Count me in!
Yeah well it started as a miss buy now its okay
At least it's not like the Airfix RAF kit I bought at a show one year. Opened the box at the snack/rest area and found it was basically an empty box of sprues, returned it and got my money back. Then came to the same show the next year and bought it again... this time only opening the box when I got home... :/
the last time there was the kit in the box?
here I was happy that at least all the bombs were in it so it was usefull never the less, but would have been very expensive bombs

and the B24, but more to come 🙂
Great scheme. Well done! Congrats.
thanks you stay tuned for the re-do of this one, not sure when need some parts for that
Wow Johan, you are certainly hitting the Coastal Command birds hard- is the Wellington going that way too?
yes but with a small twist
Nice build, especially considering the age of that kit. The Swordfish looks so sinister in black.
yeah RAF version
changed the nose art and the coding
Nice build 👍
yeah happy with it! my second build 🙂

Nice job on the Hampden, Johan. I have this kit and the Valom TB conversion to do someday...
it is fun, almost done, only needs serial and matt varnish now
although make sure you put the cannopies in when the pva is still wet of the guns, otherwise you wont be able to fit it with the gunner in place in the nose and belly turret
Nice scheme Johan.
yeah love coastal command, some more are on the to do list, just started one, and after kingfisher and AB204 are done will start another one! but thats deffinately not the end of my coastal command builds
Lovely build 👍
Nice Hampden !
Are you a Coastal Command fan ?
Yes!, how could you tell?
Great Coastal Hampton!
was fun to make, was a little disapointed that they didnt fly with that normal cammo top with coastal command, hence the all ocean grey top.
The fish clips in photo 12 make me happy.
Nice model Johan 👍
Some more pictures of the finished model would be great
well first need some decals, most models I got were without decals, need to find some RAAF ones
Yes, they would help immensely
for sure, hopefully I can find some WW2 RAAF roundels
Johan, good build but, reverse the undercarriage.
whahah that I didnt see that before 🙂very very bad fixing issue
That's how we learn. I really like SEAC markings having done a Buffalo and a Boomerang.
Yes, now you're finished. Is the Liberator your next build?
the liberator is a constant build for that 52yo kit, paint is done, nose is getting done, then paint arround the nose should be finetuned (of the cammo) then all need to be added to a diorama
Im building a kingfisher, B23,9 almost B24 and need to work on AB204 aswell, the decaling is still takes time due to me just starting to decal my "finished" projects 🙂
Nice build 👍

also testing how to put on decals on models, got a testbed for it (Im not a pro, broke the first 2 stars of the mig3) soon testing when the varnish dried on the P51B.
well old kits tend to find me, and I like building (nine in total so far) that B24 is a killer warped wings, missing parts (nose the worse missing part) and a toy like mold.
but going to do my best on it.
and I inherrited via via via via 50ish kits without decals off sprue but with instructions.
so learning to build with them. bought some I like on trade sites and a few new kits (to have something with some chances no warping etc)
got loads of colours (doing all painting by handbrush) and having really really fun.
still need loads of experience, did my first few decals today on a test model tested humbrol decalfix
tomorrow testing set and sol
so baby steps.
Still a fan of the hairy stick although jealous of the artists of the airbrush.
yeah its somewhat a choice, I really really like the painting by hand as a thing itselfs, although airbrushing gives a better end result and will cost more for me to set up. I will also loose that fun part of handbrushing.
only one model did not turn out as well as I wanted, but was also early build so that could also be the issue, now using that one to test decals, how to and what fits me best.
