  1. Thank you for kind words. Seb, answer is 'yes' - all of reference material will be available to all visitors of our site. Sincere regards, Srdjan
  2. Dear friends and modelling coleagues, It's a pleasure to announce official forming of IPMS organisation in Serbia, Europe. Founded on June 9th 2011, IPMS Srbija is officialy registered national modeling society within IPMS community. Our main goal is to promote kit modeling as a hobby in Serbia, with the implementation of high standards of IPMS. We are in a process of organizing and updating our internet site, as well as preparing material for galleries of our kit models, reference galleries, and modeling articles. This 'initial' period of work will include gathering and compiling reference materials and articles during upcoming summer and autumn, with aim to establish our site as one of the main sources of references for ex-Yugoslavian and Serbian history. Please, feel free to visit us on following URLs: http://www.ipmssrbija.com/ http://www.facebook.com/ipmssrbija In behalf of IPMS Srbija vicepresident Srdjan Radosavljevic
  3. I sanded a bit these styrene "add-ons", and recoated with Surfacer, but didn't make new photos as I want to make some more progress... Quite busy at work in recent days so no much free time to spare :( Thanx for following anyway ;) Regards, Srdjan
  4. Thnx Deacon. Here are the photos of some progress.. I've glued cowling, and sprayed Mr. Surfacer over areas where I did some interventions... Canopy on my example of this kit was distorted in right side - lower frame had shape of sinusoide - so I've cut that frane off and levelled it with sanding stick... Also, on right side, glass had some texture - consequence of bad mold probably - so I've managed to polish the outher side, but inner side is not reachable for polishing so I left it as it is... but still, looks better than it was! I've made new lower frame of canopy from styrene sheets - maybe it doesn't look so good as original frame, but I'm satisfied... Canopy is here just dryfitted to see whether fits good onto new frame - gap visible on photos should've dissapear after applying Kristal Klear on this joint... Next step will be painting remaining parts of cockpit, and glueing canopy...
  5. After long break, I've continued work on this one... First, I must make an appology for not taking a photo of decals as I promised in my previous post, but I will do it! Anyway, here are the photos of progress... Upper parts of wings and horizontal tails are glued to the fuselage, and almost all joints are puttied with Mr. Surfacer I've rescribed missing panel lines on bottom of cowling and also the hinges on it. Some panel lines on bottom part of fuselage are also scribed... Exhaust pipes are drilled with hobby knife... I've also drilled gun barrels and small intake in front of guns... Cowling is glued together with spinner base, and underfuselage fuel tank is also ready to be glued... There are few more lines to be rescribed/repaired, and I'm getting nearer to the primering phase...
  6. Spit1A, your CF-18 turned out very nice in the end - you matched the upper blue-grey shade used on Canadian Hornets, while spotlight is a real "cherry on the top of the cake" :P I've only once used LEDs on model kit, but it was the Peterbilt truck, so it was easier to install the wiring :wacko: Good job, cheers! Srdjan
  7. I'm not sure whether I had to post photos of finished model in this topic or in original topic with in-progress photos, so, here are the photos of finished model here too <_< Comparison with my favourite "reference object"... Regards, Srdjan
  8. I'm not sure whether I had to post photos of finished model in this topic or in original topic with in-progress photos, since there are no replies in that topic, so, here are the photos of finished model here too <_< Photo with my favourite "reference object" And "group photo" with its Canadian brother... Regards, Srdjan
  9. Thommo, I think that these are thin ones - they are old Airfix decals. I've seen decals in new Airfix boxings and I'm not impressed at all with them - they look quite glossy, thick, and printout is "rasterized" Anyway, I have quite a few ideas if decal glue is weak <_< but, let's wait until I reach decaling phase I'll make a photo of decals in my next "photo" post, so we can all try to judge them... Thanx for advices anyway! Srdjan
  10. Thanx for the warning Shaun, but I don't have so much other choice than these decals for D-9, especially as I would like to stick to the "Out of Box" slogan Maybe I have som other decals, but somehow I would really like to do the Oskar Romm's machine as it had pretty colourful look - all thos RLM colours, while bottom of the wings go in 3 colours, so... pretty challenging for masking too. I hope that decals are not missprinted as Heller decals per example can be - now that is awful to see! <_< Regards, Srdjan
  11. After finishing two Hornets for "On Canadian wings" and "Centennial of Naval Aviation" groupbuilds, I'm getting back to this one :D In the meantime fuselage halves were assembled, and today I've glued lower wings and engine cover on fuselage. There will be some sanding and puttying... Regards, Srdjan
  12. Few photos of details.... Comparison with my favourite "reference object"... And "group photos" with its American brother from VFA-115...
  13. Thanx for kind words Charlie and Phantom Today I can say the work on this project is finally done! I've finished some small paintings and glued tiny details in recent days, and also weathered kit with Tamiya Weathering D set (exhaust nozzles with burnt orange and blue, and few oil stains on wings and on the bottom side of rear fuselage) Enough words, here are the photos! I hope you've enjoyed this build of mine as much as I did Thanx for reading and please do comment Srdjan
