Completed 3D models
« on: March 27, 2017, 04:30:08 AM »
As it was said, here is a place for our 3D models
Sickening, weakening
Don't let another somber pariah consume your soul
You need strengthening, toughening
It takes a bit of dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
Ignite the fire within you

Grumman J5F-1 Pelican
« Reply #1 on: March 28, 2017, 07:42:55 AM »
The Grumman J5F Pelican was a natural follow-on to Grumman's earlier JF and J2F Duck series.  The Pelican used the same float/fuselage combination design as the Duck, but updated the design using the outer wings of Grumman's F4F Wildcat mated to a new center section,making the new aircraft a much more modern monoplane.  Power was supplied by the same Pratt and Whitney R-1830 Twin Wasp that powered late-model F4Fs, giving a 40% increase in power.

The Pelican was intended from the outset to be a more combat-capable aircraft than the Duck, and thus retained four of the Wildcat's .50 caliber wing guns, as well as mounting a dorsal turret carrying two more .50 caliber guns for rear-defense.  To improve the field of fire of the turret guns, a twin fin assembly replaced the Duck's single fin.

Pelican's served Navy utility squadrons in addition to being assigned in ones and twos to combat units as utility and search and rescue aircraft. 

1/72 scale, made from old (heavy rivet) Airfix Grumman J2F-6 Duck, with scratchbuilt wing center section and F4F outer wings from the HobbyBoss Easy Assembly F4F-4.  Engine and cowling from the same F4F source.  Turret from Academy PB4Y Liberator.

Bristol Bergen
« Reply #2 on: March 28, 2017, 07:51:39 AM »
In 1936, government officials in Norway were beginning to become concerned over rising tensions within Europe, and set in place an armament build-up scheme which included new aircraft for both the Army and Navy.  Naval air leaders were well aware that a new torpedo bomber and patrol aircraft was needed to replace the Douglas DT-2 and Hover MF-11 biplanes that then constituted the striking power of the Naval Air Arm.  Having studied several designs, and weighing capability, cost, and availability, they eventually contracted with Bristols to purchase a manufacturing license for a naval floatplane variant of the then-new Blenheim bomber.  The new development was renamed the Bristol Bergen and included twin floats and other naval equipment, and the ability to carry one Mk XI aerial torpedo, or 1200 pounds of bombs.  14 were built by Marinens Flyvebaatfabrikk between 1937 and the German invasion of Norway in 1940.  Shown is 54, which survived the German attack and later flew in RAF Coastal Command markings.

Kit was the new-mold Airfix Blenheim I with floats from a Junkers Ju 52/3mSee, scratchbuilt struts, and painted Norwegian markings (except the serial number).  The Torpedo came from the Airfix Swordfish.  All in 1/72.  Beaching gear is made from leftover roadwheels from a 1/35 Sherman.

Chimera Next Gen Destroyer

As a way forward to develop the wave piercing hull design, the Chimera was fitted out as a missile Frigate. Still in developement, there are teething problems, but the concept itself is showing some promise

Bonjour / Bonsoir mon petit cornichons!!

Ce mauvais garçon est fini.

Here is the Morane-Saulnier MS.480 Morse as used by the Flotille 53S Aeronavale, Hourtin, 1948








The fuselage and floats are from the Matchbox Walrus. The wings are from a B7A1 Grace. Propeller (front 1/2) is from a Spitfire Mk.21. The front part of the engine cowl is from the B7A1 Grace and the back is from a cut up 1/48 drop tank. I scratch built the engine mount.

Tamiya Spray Can silver overall.

Decals are from the kit and spares box.

Brewster Waterbufflalo MK.I in FAA service.

What can I say? You take one part Buffalo and one part water-floaty-thingies, mix, glue, psr, paint and bake for 2 weeks and viola, a Waterbuffalo is born.
