Here post 1-2 images of previous builds of GB-subject models. You do not have to be a member of this GB to do so.

If your model has a build thread on UAMF (old or new), then please include the link.

Here's the first time I built a 1/72 Aoshima/MRC Curtiss P-36.

Image

This kit is older than the Beatles' "Revolver" LP and despite features like poseable ailerons and flaps, it can be made somewhat presentable.

Image

In the alt-history, teething troubles with the Hurricane led to them being built under license by the Reliant Co. for the RAF who called it the Robin.

Here I present you with my Mistercraft MiG-15, that was originally released by the brand Ruch, which later became
ZTS Plastyk. This kit is a rip-off of Airfix old tool MiG-15.
I added some extra left-over bits from a KP MiG - I wanted to avoid a see-thru effect from the nose right to the exhaust :grin:
The air intake splitter part was plied off from the base of an old Frog stand, and cut to fit in!

Actually it was real fun to build it, I only needed a minimum of correction fluid (tipp-ex) as a filler.

PM (probably still called Pioneer 2 when I bought it) 1/72 Yak-15 the canopy is so thick its at least half the it's own depth

Image

PM 1/72 Expediator C-45

Mixed trenches and raised detail in some perverse mockery of a Matchbox kit but with none of the charm.

Better to fettle than to fill

In 65 or so years of modeling, I'm sure there have been some doozies, but the most recent has to be the Frog Gloster Whittle 'Pioneer' that I built for our SMW 2009 display. I drew the short straw that year -- I am not, repeat not, doing another.

Image

Those familiar with the kit will remember that among other accuracy and molding issues, the fuselage and wings were two different scales as were the two included pilots, one seated, one standing.

Should my Skyhawk come out about half as good as yours, I´d be quite happy!
I´ll build her wheels-up, too - saves some time on the build!

The worst model I've ever built was the Glencoe Albatros DIII. No parts aligned, engineering was extremely poor, and major parts were warped and twisted. It was nearly impossible to build and the final results so-so at best. This one is still in my cabinet, but if I were to "accidently" drop it onto the floor from a great height, I don't think I'd be too upset.

The Airfix Widgeon a kit to avoid at all cost :shock:

Goes together really nicely and I really enjoyed the build but very inaccurate when compared to the Zvezda kit.
