  1. The sun finally comes out, so I have the chance to take some shiney photos I took this photo for reference :-)Although I noticed in most case the undercarriage doors are closed when gears are down and locked
  2. 1/48 Short Tucano converted from hobbyboss EMB-312. The following parts are modified: 1\ the original three blade is converted into a four blade propeller 2\ jet pipes are moved to lower front fuselage 3\ the nose section is slightly modified to represent a smoother cross section on the Short Tucano rather than Embraer Tucano 4\ Added a frame and detonation cord to the original canopy 5\ Added the ventral airbrake, leaving it at closed position
  3. Finally realized that the airbrake is hung below lower fuselage rather than being integrated in to fuselage skin....so i made one out of placard Now it is finished
  4. A little update: canopy painted, decals applied. Detonation cords are made of some spare decals from other kits
  5. Really pleased to draw attention of those who know Short Tucano well. I did noticed that the ventral brakes are one of the difference between Short Tucano and Embraer Tucano. Unfortunately Hobbyboss kits represents the EMB-312 Tucano only, so there is no ventral brake on the kit. I simply decided to omit this airbrake, cuz I would like to build a Tucano with clean configuration (suppose it in closed position). Regards.

  7. As far as I know, there are two major versions of Brazilian Tucano: the EMB-312 Tucano basic trainer and EMB-314 Super Tucano(which is actually a light attack aircraft). Hobbyboss has released both versions. Brazilian EMB-314 Super Tucano (Hobby Boss - Nr. 81727 - 1:48) The conversion set you mentioned above would be suitable for this version https://www.scalemates.com/kits/hobby-boss-81727-brazilian-emb-314-super-tucano--227138 Brazilian EMB-312 Tucano (Hobby Boss - Nr. 81763 - 1:48) This is released in 2017, a new tooled injection kit for the Embraer EMB-312 Tucano in 1/48th scale. And this is the exact kit that I am working on. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/hobby-boss-81763-brazilian-emb-312-tucano--1021562 Short Tucano is licensed version of EMB-312 Tucano, which is bulit by Short Brothers. This type features a more powerful turboprop and a four bladed propeller. Unfortunately, there's perhaps no injection kit in 1/48th scale now....(Airfix has released decent kits for 1/72 modellers)
  8. Take a closer look at the cockpit

The following parts are modified: 1\ the original three blade is converted into a four blade propeller 2\ jet pipes are moved to lower front fuselage 3\ the nose section is slightly modified to represent a smoother cross section on the Short Tucano rather than Embraer Tucano 4\ I am going to add a frame to the original canopy
  10. thanks a lot! Literally it is a challenging kit. It does need a lot of putty and sanding. The fitting of its intake is a nightmare, haha.
  11. Hello, this is an old build finished in 2011. Built straight out of box.

  13. Hello ,this is my build last summer. I used S4804 (F-15C MSIP II flown by Jeff Hwang) but instead replaced its decals with Afterburners' 'Shogun Eagles'. Weapons came from difference sources( AIM-120Cs from Hasegawa's air-to-air weapon set, Sidewinders were from Tamiya's F-16C kit)
