There are now two such kits as single kits and dual kit 'Royal Class' boxing affording the modeler to build several of the Scale Aircraft Conversions (SAC).</p> <p>The SAC gear provides the modeler with a replacement while metal landing gear set, including the main gear and the rear tail strut. One great advantage of the SAC metal gear is their ability to be bent where necessary to more accurately sit on the gear.</p> <p>My first task was to remove the visible seam lines, using small sanding sticks and no. 11 blade scalpel. I then primed each piece, using my standby Mission Model black primer, which allows me to easily see where I might have missed when I sprayed the final metallic paint. Although this was primed and painted with an acrylic, I still apply a coat of clear gloss and let it set for several hours. Then I applied a light coat of burnt umber wash to bring out the raised details and recoat it with a matt clear finish.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/tempest-mk-v-landing-gear" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/tempest-mk-v-landing-gear#comments Aircraft Details Mon, 11 Nov 2019 04:19:17 +0000 Dave Morrissette 8609 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org USAF B-1B 34th BS "Thunderbirds" https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/usaf-b-1b-34th-bs-thunderbirds <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/usaf-b-1b-34th-bs-thunderbirds" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/usaf-b-1b-34th-bs-thunderbirds/academy_b-1_boxart.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Academy Model Kits is adding to their 1/144<sup>th</sup> scale bomber fleet with the addition of a Rockwell B-1B Lancer.

This time they turn their attention to the classic British Battleship, HMS Rodney. If you are familiar with these titles, a ship is rendered in full color, 3D illustrations. Each of these super drawing books provide a short overview of the ship in question specifications and a summary of its operational history before plunging into the illustrations. Kagero also provides a black and white fold out plan of the HMS Rodney.</p> <p>If you are not familiar with these publications, the illustrations cover the features of a ship from stem to stern. They focus on the bits and pieces that are normally found scattered on the deck of a warship. As in previous titles, the illustrations are well rendered and provide the kind of details that a ship modeler will appreciate. The illustrations only provide external details; they do not go between decks or in the superstructure. The illustrations concentrate of the Rodney's configuration in 1942.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/battleship-hms-rodney-1942" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/battleship-hms-rodney-1942#comments Ships Publications Mon, 04 Nov 2019 04:38:30 +0000 William O'Malley 8602 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org AF-2S Guardian "Submarine Killer" https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/af-2s-guardian-submarine-killer <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/af-2s-guardian-submarine-killer" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/af-2s-guardian-submarine-killer/sh48135_boxtop.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="Box Art " width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>I have a love for the unusual Naval airplanes - ones without the glitz and glamour of things like the F-14 Tomcat or F-18 Hornet.

There were actually two planes used for this job- one to carry the large (at the time) radar and detecting equipment and a second plane to carry weapons to destroy the sub. This particular kit is the "Sub Killer" and would carry the weapons. The Guardian was the largest single-engine piston-powered carrier aircraft to see service. Around 200 were built.</p> <p>Let's look at the kit- Special Hobby is a limited run kit consisting of seven gray and one clear sprue, a single colorized photoetched sheet and lots of resin parts with a nice decal sheet representing two aircraft:</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/af-2s-guardian-submarine-killer" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/af-2s-guardian-submarine-killer#comments Aircraft Kits Mon, 04 Nov 2019 03:20:07 +0000 David Wrinkle 8601 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org Battle of Berlin 1943-1944 https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/battle-berlin-1943-1944 <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/battle-berlin-1943-1944" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/battle-berlin-1943-1944/battle_of_berlin_book_cover.jpeg" alt="Product Image" title="Front Cover" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>This fine book is yet another in Osprey's Air Campaign series.

In production since 1954, the C-130J is the latest in a long line of models. The landing gear was designed for rough field operations, with large, low pressure main landing gear tires and a pair of low-pressure nose wheel tires. The original brake design was for a single disk (like in a modern car) and has been upgraded to a multi-disk unit. The brakes look the same once mounted onto the gear's axle.</p> <p>The kit comes with 10 pieces molded in grey resin, and is meant for the 1/48 Testors/Italeri C-130 kit. There are many fine details with the castings. A nice touch is the "Goodyear" emblems and the valve stems and groove lines molded into the tires to represent the spaces between the treads. The only disappointment I found was with the brakes - I wish the back of the main landing gear tires was "hollow" so that the brake details would sit inside, just like on the real aircraft.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/c-130-tires-and-brakes" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/c-130-tires-and-brakes#comments Aircraft Details Fri, 01 Nov 2019 04:37:07 +0000 William O'Malley 8597 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org C-130 J Engine Nacelles https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/c-130-j-engine-nacelles <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-region-pr-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/c-130-j-engine-nacelles" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square imagecache-linked imagecache-review_cover_square_linked"><img src="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/review_cover_square/reviews/c-130-j-engine-nacelles/engine_nacelles_boxart.jpg" alt="Product Image" title="Packaging" width="150" height="150" class="imagecache imagecache-review_cover_square"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Attack Squadron from Poland had been producing some lovely resin kits and aftermarket items.

Their product range is primarily made up of 1/35th scale resin kits, conversion sets, and accessories which are vacuum cast from polyurethane resin. Their products may be purchased on line through their website and <a href="https://www.modelchoice.net" rel="nofollow">www.modelchoice.net</a>. </p> <p>A new addition to their line is a set of resin wheels for the 1/72 Williams Brothers C-46 Commando kit. Each wheel is individually cast along with an outside hub cover, and a tail wheel, on casting blocks. The tires are appropriately flattened, but the tail wheel is independent of the support assembly. Some minor surgery of those kit parts will be necessary.</p><p><a href="https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/wheels-c-46-commando" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/wheels-c-46-commando#comments Aircraft Details Wed, 30 Oct 2019 10:25:53 +0000 Doug Cole 8595 at https://web.ipmsusa3.org
