  1. The 1:72 Airfix Mi-24 bui;t in the modern overall green Polish markings. Not a bad build for an older airfix kit. Overall SMS PL77 green. A good test for this new paint brand. Decals used were Techmod No 72154. Numbers in particular wanted the fold over, so posed a few problems.

  2. Why aren’t you looking at your stash of Flanker kits deciding which one to build next?.
  3. Nice build. I have a few of the Trumpeter I’ll-28 kits and the Nigerian decals, but that camo scheme has deterred me.
  4. The new 1:72 Airfix MiG-17F built in Polish markings using ModelMaker Decals MiG-17 in Polish Service part 2. Will be built as No 1912 which is today preserved at the Ashburton Aviation Museum on the South Island of New Zealand. I visited the museum on 8 September 2018. MiG-17F-2 by Ryan Hothersall, on Flickr It is good to have a reasonably priced and fairly easy to get kit of the widely used MiG-17F as I plan on building quite a few. First one of these I have built, so a couple of little things I will have to improve on the next one, a small gap in the intake splitter etc. Generally a good build and but needs a lot of weight to stop it being a tail sitter. This one has just enough weight in it. ModelMaker decals went on without any major issues, but getting individual number decals lined up was a bit fiddly.

  5. The old 1:72 MiH-21MF kit from KP built in Hungarian markings. Build is what you expect from an older kit, fit isn't the best in places, and on this kit the canopy and a piece broken off, so the kit part was not usable and meant a dig around in the spares box... Ended up using a spare Eduard canopy, hence not the best fit. I did try a vacform canopy on something else a while ago and never ever again. The AA-2 missiles and rails are kit parts, the AA-1 missiles and rails are from Eduard. With Model Master now becoming hard to get here in Australia, I decided to try some locally made paint from SMS (Scale Modellers Supply) which in acrylic lacquer vs the enamel I'm more used to. I was surprised how easy this paint is to use, no thinning, quick drying, but I need to find a different way of masking as the blu tack sausage method did not always work as I wanted it to. Colours used were SMS PL-89 blue grey on the underside, SMS PL-32 brown and SMS PL-31 green on the upper side. Decals went on without any issues. A mix for modern KP stars and HAD Deca;s for the numbers from the spares file.
