    Revell 1/144 AN-124

    Nice build. Seen that very aircraft at my local airport last year.
  2. The Airfix kit of the MiG-23 built as a an early Soviet MiG-23M Flogger B in the overall grey scheme, These early aircraft quite often were armed with AA+2 Atoll as there were early problems with the new AA-7 Apex and Sa[fir radar. Build wise it's a simple kit with no problems, but I ended up on the touching up the paint merry go round for a while. Overall colour is Model Master 1730 grey. Decals are some RV MiG-23 decals from the spares file.

    What other hobbies do you guys and gals have?

    Other hobbies apart from building models: Tinkering with computers, especially getting them to read data off weather stations, the roof top solar etc. I also have an ADS-B set up to feed Flight Radar 24. Have an an interest in observing the weather and keeping records on the daily Min/Max temp, rainfall etc with a weather station set up in the backyard. Spend many hours at the local airports photographing interesting aircraft that come in and out. Also travel around a bit to visit airports and fly on various types of aircraft and airlines. When the weather is favorable fly my quadcopter.

    1:72 Amodel MiG I-270 Soviet Union

    The 1:72 Amodel kit of the MiG I-270 rocket powered interceptor prototype. Again with it being a short run kit, fit wasn't too bad. Overall Tamiya X-11 Silver. Silver paint is very unforgiving in that it shows every scratch etc in the surface. No issues with the kit decals.

    1:72 Amodel I-302P Soviet Union

    The 1:72 Amodel kit of the I-302P rocket powered interceptor prototype. As this appears to be one of the earlier kit from Amodel, it is a quite basic kit, but not too bad for a short run kit. No major issues with building this one. Underside is Model Master 2033 blue and upper side Model Master 2122 green. While the kit decals went on ok, I did notice some silvering, Build Progress Photos Build Progress Video I-320P-39 by Ryan Hothersall, on Flickr I-320P-40 by Ryan Hothersall, on Flickr I-320P-41 by Ryan Hothersall, on Flickr I-320P-42 by Ryan Hothersall, on Flickr I-320P-43 by Ryan Hothersall, on Flickr
  12. The 1:72 Heller (reboxed Airfix) MiG-23 built in the earlier overall grey scheme and Hungarian star markings. Build wise, no issues as this is a fairly basic kit. I only added some different pylons for the AA-7 missiles and found some missiles that looked more like the newer R-13M version of the AA-2 Atoll. Overall colour scjeme is Model master 1730 grey. Decals are from a MiG-23MF sheet from RV aircraft.

    Su-27IB - 1/72 scale Su-34 prototype conversion

    Another nice conversion.
  14. The second kit out of the Dual MiG-17 and MiG-21 boxing from Hasegawa. The MiG-17 built as a MiG-17F in Czech markings. A simple kit with no major issues, although the resin intake included to make the MiG-17F variant took a bit of sanding to make it fit. Colour used is Tamiya XF-16 Aluminium. Decals are a mix of kit and from the spares box. The various different decals went on without any problems.

    pics/info for American MiG-29's

    My understanding is this one is one of the ex Moldovan MiG-29s. It’s at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum.
