Pollyjolly123's 1/72 scale military collection

Hi guys, I was inspired by ANA Mohican to do this.

Here are a few overview shots of my 1/72 collection of both plastic models and diecast.



Here is half of my first shelf, from left to right, US Air Force LT-6G, US Army Air Corps Mosquito PR Mk XVi, and the nose of my WIP F-117


Here we have the before mentioned Work in Progress F-117, the F-105D, and the F-104C


below them we have an US Navy SNJ-5, and a US Marine Corps F4U-1 Corsair


and now the mother of all the 1/72 planes I have buit or collected so far, The Tu-22

Nice collection so far!

Funny thing is I got into collecting 1/72 military because of ANA Mohican too.

US Army Air Force Mosquito PR Mk XVI 802nd Reconnaissance Group, D-Day, June 6th 1944



Quoting Wikipedia:
"The de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito was a British combat aircraft that excelled in versatility during the Second World War. It was known affectionately as the "Mossie" to its crews[3] and was also nicknamed "The Wooden Wonder" or "The Timber Terror" as the bulk of the aircraft was made of laminated plywood.[4] It saw service with the Royal Air Force (RAF) and many other air forces in the European theatre, the Pacific theatre of Operations and the Mediterranean Theatre, as well as postwar.
Originally conceived as an unarmed fast bomber, the Mosquito was adapted to many other roles during the air war, including: low to medium altitude daytime tactical bomber, high altitude night bomber, pathfinder, day or night fighter, fighter-bomber, intruder, maritime strike, and fast photo reconnaissance aircraft carrying out aerial reconnaissance. It was even used by the British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) as a transport. It was also the basis for a single-seat heavy fighter, the de Havilland Hornet."



In the above picture you can see the photo the cameras facing down towards the battle field. This aircraft was invaluable durring the invasion of Normandy for its ability to photograph German installations from a comfortable altitude seeing as this version of the Mosquito was pressurized.

1/72 Corgi Vought F4U-1 Corsair, United States Marine Corps




Quoting Wikipedia:
"The performance of the Corsair was impressive. The F4U-1 was considerably faster than the F6F Hellcat and only 13 mph (21 km/h) slower than the P-47 Thunderbolt,[27][28][29] both of the two other fighters also being powered by the R-2800. But while the P-47 achieved its highest speed at 30,020 feet (9,150 m) with the help of an intercooled turbosupercharger,[30] the F4U-1 reached its maximum speed at 19,900 ft (6,100 m),[31] and used a mechanically supercharged engine.[32]
Carrier qualification trials on the escort carrier USS Sangamon, on 25 September 1942, caused the U.S. Navy to release the type to the United States Marine Corps.[33] Early Navy pilots spoke disparagingly of the F4U as the "hog", "hosenose" or "bent wing widow-maker".[34] After all, the U.S. Navy still had the Grumman F6F Hellcat, which did not have the performance of the F4U but was a far better deck landing aircraft. The Marines needed a better fighter than the F4F Wildcat. For them it was not as important the F4U could be recovered aboard a carrier, as they usually flew from land bases. Growing pains aside, Marine Corps squadrons readily took to the radical new fighter.[35]"



Once again quoting wikipedia:
"F4U-1 (Corsair Mk I Fleet Air Arm): The first production version of the Corsair with the original cockpit seat height and "bird cage" canopy.[N 5] The differences over the XF4U-1 were as follows:
Six .50 in (12.7 mm) Browning AN/M2 machine guns were fitted in the outer wing panels, displacing fuel tanks.
An enlarged 237 gal (897 l) fuel tank was fitted ahead of the cockpit, in place of the fuselage armament. The cockpit was moved back by 32 in (810 mm).
The fuselage was lengthened from 31 feet 11 inches (9.73 m) to 33 feet 4 inches (10.16 m).
The more powerful R-2800-8 Double Wasp was fitted.
150 pounds (68 kg) of armor plate was fitted to the cockpit and a 1.5 in (38 mm) bullet-resistant glass screen was fitted behind the curved windscreen.
IFF transponder equipment was fitted.
Curved transparent panels were incorporated into the fuselage behind the pilot's headrest.
The flaps were changed from deflector type to NACA slotted.
The span of the ailerons was increased while that of the flaps was decreased.
One 62 gal (234 l) non-self-sealing auxiliary fuel cell was installed in each wing leading edge, just outboard of the guns.
A land-based version for the USMC, without the folding wing capability, was built by Goodyear under the designation FG-1. In Fleet Air Arm service the F4U-1 was given the name Corsair Mk I.[92] Vought also built a single F4U-1 two-seat trainer; the Navy showed no interest.[93]"


Notice the uncharacteristic "birdcage" canopy on the F4U-1, something not seen on the later models.

The Italeri 1/72 Tu-22 Blinder



Quoting Wikipedia:
"The Tu-22 entered service in 1962,[4] but it experienced considerable problems, leading to widespread unserviceability and a number of crashes. Amongst its many faults was a tendency for skin heating at supersonic speed, distorting the control rods and causing poor handling. The landing speed was 100 km/h (62 mph) higher than previous bombers and the Tu-22 had a tendency to pitch up and strike its tail on landing, though this problem was eventually resolved with the addition of electronic stabilization aids. Even after some of its teething problems had been resolved, the 'Blinder' was never easy to fly, and it was maintenance-intensive.
Pilots for the first Tu-22 squadrons were selected from the ranks of "First Class" Tu-16 pilots, which made transition into the new aircraft difficult, as the Tu-16 had a co-pilot, and many of the "elite" Tu-16 pilots selected had become accustomed to allowing their co-pilots to handle all the flight operations of the Tu-16 except for take-off and landings. As a consequence, Tu-16 pilots transitioning to the single-pilot Tu-22 suddenly found themselves having to perform all the piloting tasks, and in a much more complicated cockpit. Many, if not most of these pilots were unable to complete their training for this reason. Eventually pilots began to be selected from the ranks of the Su-17 "Fitter" crews, and these pilots made the transition with less difficulty."



This is one of the largest models I have ever built, but now that the 1/72 B-1B has arrived, it wont be the largest for long.

I got impatient waiting for my paint today, so my girlfriend and I drove over the the local hobby shop and bought two 1:72 kits, A B-26G and a UC-64A Norseman, photos of the boxes and the progress on the B-26 below, I'm letting my girlfriend build the Norseman.
