  1. I really like this. Super clean finish! Well done! 🙂
  2. Hi! I´m making my way back to the hobby after a long break and thought I´d share my latest completion with you. The 1/72 Special Hobby Do 27 in Bundesluftwaffe Norm 62 colours. I love the "day-glo" on these schemes as it provides such a nice contrast to the drab of the camouflage. Built straight out of the box and painted with Tamiya and Gunze paints except for the flourescent orange which is Vallejo Air. I also added belts from Tamiya tape cut in strips. Such a nice kit, thoroughly recommended. Just take care that the glass (front canopy and roof observation window) are thoroughly sealed before painting. Otherwise some paint-dust is bound to get inside and cloud the glass from the inside. Making it tricky to correct. Don´t ask me how I know. 🙂 🤦‍♂️ Kind regards! Emil
  3. Hiya mate! Not sure you remember me. we had some discussion on russian jets several years ago. I´ve only just returned to modelling after a loong break. And thought I´d say hi. 🙂 This is such a nice model. Is it still mostly brushpainted? I know you´re a master with the "hairy-stick". Love the detail work. Especially the visible engine. Kind regards! Emil from Sweden
  4. Looks great Dragan! Even if the kit gave you trouble, the results are wonderful! Cheers! Emil
  5. This is coming along really, really well Jan! I think this is a super good build from a guy that´s "no car modeller" You will find that the clear looks awesome after waxing. I´ll be here watching mate! Emil
  6. Hiya! Great job there Janman! I´ve built a quite a few cars recently and I think I´m starting to get the hang of it so if it is something you wanna know about painting or polishing or something else just shoot me a PM or reply in the thread. And I´ll keep looking at this modelling masterclass. A car I built not long ago.......Very much recommended If you wanna have another go! 1/24 Fujimi Ferrari F430 Spider. (Iknow It´s missing the rearview mirrors I´ve added them now) :D Cheers! Emil
  7. Thanks guys, most appreciated! Emil
  8. Hiya! Is there anyone on here who know where to find pictures of the Cockpit and any prominent features on the Italian twin seat starfighters as I´m soon gonna start a bird from the 4th stormo, 20th gruppo of the AMI. Especially ones showing the sidewall detail of the cockpit would be appreciated . My 1/48 th Hasegawa bird is pretty bare there. Thanks! Emil
  9. Hi! I´m not sure which Mr. color paint you´re using so I´ll provide altternative for both. Regular (Nitro) Cellulose thinners works just fine to thin Mr. Color lacquer paints and surfacer.It should not be hard to find in your hardware store. Here where I live you can buy it in litres and 1 litre is about 8 bucks US. If you´re using the Acrylic version you could go to the pharmacy and get some IPA (isopropyl alcohol) they should know what you want. IPA is the same stuff as Tamiya X-20A thinner but without the retarder. If you want to these paints can be thinned with the above cellulose thinners as well. Hope this helps! Cheers! Emil
  10. Hi! Wow guys thanks for the help! The reason that I asked was that I was gonna order some kits and supplies online and wanted to know if the A pit would fit because they had a Blackbox set at a good price. But after reading your replies I decided against buying it so I just bought a pair of Aires Aces II seats for the kit. (I know there is only one seat in the F16 but having a spare is never bad :blink:) They did´nt have the complete set for the Tamiya kit in stock so I figured I could just scratch some things for the sidepanels and use the seats as most other things seem fine..... Again, thanks for helping me out! :D Cheers! Emil
  11. Hi! Since there is alot of experts on the type on this forum I thought it´d be the best Pace to ask. Im looking at building the new Tamiya F16 C and was thinking about using the Blackbox cockpit set for the Hase F 16 the only problem is that the Blackbox set is for the A version and the Tamiya kit is a C, will it be OK to use the A cockpit in the C without being that wrong......or do they differ alot? Thanks! Emil
  12. What can you say....this is so good you could cry. Can´t wait to see some weathering on the ol´kitty. Keep it up, your work truly inspires! Cheers! Emil
  13. Hi there, master of brushpainting! ;) So, you´re converting to spraycans. I sort of gave up on painting large areas with brushes and joined the dark side (airbrushers) a while back. The difference really is rediculous (for me since I´m not superhuman like some :lol:) , what you fight so hard with to achieve with the paintbrush you can achieve with the airbrush in like an instant. Not regretting my desicion at all. After some fiddling around, I did this in 30 minutes with Tamiya acrylics and an Aztek A470. Not hard at all even for a beginner :) I can´t comment on this really but from looking at the swatches in the catalog I can imagine that it´s pretty much spot on. TS-61 Nato green is a dead on match for the armour green the russians used. If nothing of these works you could always look into something like this. I guarantee that it will make everything alot easier. And its pretty cheap if you don´t like it so it won´t "be a big pill to swallow". HTH! Emil
  14. Thank you very much Murph, for taking your time and helping me out! Much appreciated! Cheers! Emil
  15. Hi! I have a 1/72 Hasegawa BAE Harrier Gr. 3 that I´m thinking of starting soon. When looking at the sprues in the box I saw the cockpit is lacking alot of detail so I´m planning some mods. The only resin stuff seems to be for the later marks and the US. AV8 Harrier II. So PE seems to be my only option besides scratch, which leads to my question. Can I use PE parts for the Gr. 5 in the cockpit of the Gr. 3 or do they differ alot? I´m thinking of using this Eduard set. Ps. If anyone know if there is any AM decals avaliable for the Gr. 3 aswell please tell me, the ones in the box is crap basically:D. And I have trouble finding any Ds. Thanks and Cheers! Emil
  16. I´ve been thinking of getting a pair of those too. They seem useful. :) Not making it easier to choose. :lol: I´m sure It will turn out nice whatever you choose. Cheers! Emil
  17. What tool do you use to cut small pieces like these? I always struggle with them. Needless to say, the kitty looks great. Have you decided what scheme you´ll do yet......... wolfpack.........wolfpack ..... ;) Emil
  18. Great Hun Terry! Too bad about the silvering, but if you had´nt said anything i would´nt have noticed. Cheers! Emil
  19. Hi! Been thinking of getting an Iwata airbrush soon and when researching the different models I´ve come across some models that have the MAC valve. Is it useful or just a gizmo? Tell me your opinions! Cheers! Emil
  20. Looks very promising Quiddy! I think you made a smart move in choosing an AM seat for your Volksjäger since the kit seat is very fragile and breaks very easily. And it´s easy to mess up! Looking forward to seeing more! Cheers! Emil
  21. Tja Johan! Grymt snygg cockpit, riktigt bra gjord! Ska bli kul att följa fortsättningen. Kul med en svensk till här också! Ha de gött! Emil
