  1. Thank you, SERNAK! Speaking about buying the kit, I recently checked Italeri's website and seen that they upgraded the kit's fuselage. The non-existing airbrake is removed and they corrected the shape of those intakes (?) above the engines too. I have to fix these myself on my 20 years old kit. Regards, Zoli
  2. Hello everyone, time for a little update. Aigore, thanks! Gianni, thank you! Your Eagle is incredible! One day I want to learn some tricks from figure painters to be able to make as nice cockpits as the one in that F-15. Elmo, thank you! TBH, you are one of the master modelers here on ARC I try to learn from. It is always a jaw-dropping experience to see how detailed that Intruder is. Back to the update: I still do not know the exact name of the door I mentioned before but I tried to add all (correction: most of) the deta
  3. Hello everyone, time for a small update. Aigore, Major Walt, thanks for the kind words. Today I replaced some oversized details on the radar. When I built it the 0.5mm soldering wire was the thinnest I had, looks ugly. That is all for today. I will continue with the door the gun is reloaded through - I do not know the official name. On the inner side there are a lot of stuff, actually I am collecting the images. I hope you like this. Cheers, Zoli
  4. Hello everyone, time for a little update... Yeah, I do the same - building 1/24 Lamborghini models, mainly during the Xmas breaks. So, the updated Vulcan model that cannot be seen at the end 😉 That is all for today. I hope you like it. Next I will update the radar a little bit too. Cheers, Zoli
  5. Well, do it then! I like scratch building topics... 🙂 But after having a long scratch building session I feel the opposite thing: the urge to build something totally OOB, just cutting, gluing and painting. No search for reference photos, no measuring, etc. Speaking about long sessions, the "refurbished" M61 Vulcan is almost finished, hopefully tomorrow I can post some images of it.
  6. Hello everyone! Szia Polo, nagyon köszönöm! Igyekszem mielőbb megépíteni, régóta vár már a befejezésre. So - I finished another chunk of details on this beast. The gun bay door is detailed. Again, not fully accurate, but gives the "busy" look. I hope you like it. The next will be detailing the M61 Vulcan that I already built when I started this project (photos can be found on the first page of the topic). Not much will be visible of it at its final place, but I like the id
  7. Hello everyone, next victim is the gun bay door. This is the basic shape. I will continue with boxes and wires here. QUESTION: exactly what is that fabric-looking "box" under the gun (between the meshes)? Is it a big bag, is there some electronics in it (on some pictures it looks like cables are attached to it)? WARNING: if you try to copy this mesh creation method, do not use the actual curtain in your home, it could be harmful... 😉 I hope you like this.
  8. Hi Aigore! Thank you! Yes, adding details / scratch building is one of the best parts in modeling, I agree. You start it by adding small details (on the landing gears, ejection seats, ...). And next time being overconfident you want more - cutting the whole model into pieces (exactly what is happening to me here 😄 ). Only to realize later how big and time consuming even a small detailing task could be... I can just hope I can finish this bird one day. To me it is still almost unbelievable that there are people on this forum who work on - or even fly - these incredible
  9. Hello everyone! Thanks, Aigore! 🙂 I continued the build with the gun/radar bay. As I mentioned in the first image, there was virtually no reference material for this part. I googled for "super hornet gun", "super hornet radar", "gun bay", "radar bay", "nose compartment", "gun maintenance", many other combinations - no real success. Got a lot of pictures but the real thing was hidden on most of them. Searched videos on youtube - found some legacy Hornet related material about
  10. ...more pictures... I hope you like it. Cheers, Zoli
  11. Hello everyone, it is time for an update after another long scratchbuilding session. I can just hope you will like the end result. Aigore, thanks for the kind words! I am regularly checking your Viggen build, those 3D printed parts look amazing. Probably my other hobby (computer game development) can be connected to plastic modeling, printing the virtual 3D models as real ones... tomfomes, thank you! So, as I mentioned in my last last post, let's play with plastic again: front wheel well...
  12. Hi all, again, a little avionics bay scratchbuilt content. 😉 Thadeus, thank you! I hope I can finish this bird one day. 🙂 Flight Line Media, thanks for the kind words! I managed to finish avionics bays on both side. I am sure these boxes and details are not accurate but it captures the look of the bays full of tiny details. (here you can see that the other side is also finished, the "hedgehog" like boxes from my previous post got their wires bent to shape) I hope y
  13. Thanks, Janne! That is exactly what my father used to say when he sees my display case! 🙂 Thank you, Night Owl Models! Patience: I realized that if I put only one (or just a half) hour a day into the build, it will be ok... 😉 Hi Thadeus, thank you! No, I did not know most of these problems. And now I am hesitating tossing this model into the trashcan - just kidding! 😄 We can find similar problems on most of the models we build - some of them are corrected, some of them we live with - modeler's life. Anyway, I cannot explain why, but I
  14. Hi everyone! I can't really believe that the last time I added something to this topic was 7 years ago. Life, other hobbies, other modeling projects, etc... Anyway, after finishing some Lamborghinis, an Academy 1/48 F-14A (sooner or later I will create an "in-progress" topic for it) and a Hobby Boss 1/48 Hellcat I wanted to resurrect this bird from the shelf of doom... 🙂 In my last post seven years ago (OMG) I mentioned the avionics bays - let it be then. As I created these boxes many years ago, the sides of them are already yellowed - I can just hope they will not br
  15. Hello Slartibartfast, I guess by aero boy racer stuff you mean the LP5000 version. TBH I got a diecast model of an LP5000 as a child, and my love to Lambos is based on that one... Anyway, nothing is better/faster than than Starship Bistromath, isn't it? 😉 Cheers, Zoli
