  1. Changed back to default and everything is ok.
  2. The 1:72 scale KP kit of the MiG-15 UTI built as a prototype trainer the Czechs thought they would need to train pilots for the radar equipped MiG-17PF. Only two aircraft were modified and the project was cancelled. Since it is the old KP kit, so the fit isn't the greatest, and the modifications I made needed a lot of filling and sanding anyway. The new intake and radar came off a KP MiG-17PF which was given to me in a box full of various broken bits and pieces, so the nose of the MiG-17 was sawed off and attached to the MiG-15, the new intake was a larger diameter than the MiG-15 one, so needed a fair bit of sanding to make it fit. Overall Tamiya XF-16 Aluminium. Decals are from the spares file. Gad to make the serial number up from individual decals.

  3. So the paint will still be made, but no distributed internationally, so jere in Australia I will have to find something else. Is that correct?.
  4. I hope it’s this fake news rubbish that’s doing the rounds these days. I quite like the Model Master enamels, easy to use, once dry doesn’t come off under tape etc. easy to clean the air brush.
  5. I’ve got the original Esci/Italeri one, both boxing’s of the Modelsvit But not the Trumpeter yet.
  6. The 1:72 Eduard kit of the early MiG-15 built in Czechoslovak markings using the kit decals. This kit was given to me second jand in a partially built state. No real issues encountered. Overall Tamiya XF-16 Aluminium. Kit decals used, They were ok until one of the wing walk decals moved and when I realized this, tried to move it and it started to break.

  7. Photos from the 2019 South Australian Plastic Modellers Association model expo held on the weekend of October 12-13 2019. Flickr photos. Youtube slideshow.
  8. Nice report and photos. Been helping out with the setup for the South Australian Plastic Modellers Association’s yearly model expo today. ours will be this weekend.
  9. The 1:72 Amodel kit of the Alexeyev I-215 interceptor prototype built in Soviet markings. One of the newer Amodel kits, so moulding quality was better and went together good for a short run kit. Colours used was overall Model Master 1731 grey. Decals are kit decals and while one star did start to break apart, the rest went on ok.

  10. Yes I’m in a similar position. I find the MM enamels spray well and don’t leave a big mess which makes cleaning a simple Paasche H series airbrush easier to do. since they discontinued the Russian colors first, I’m running out of options. I have read many horror stories about acrylic, so I’m wary of it.
  11. Nice build. I have that decal sheet too. Not game enough to try it though.
  12. Photos from the 2019 Props. Jets & Rotors Model display held at the South Australian Aviation Museum on the weekend of August 24-25 2019. Model display photos.
  13. The 1:72 scale Dragon kit of the Shenyang F-5 (Chinese built MiG-17F) built in Albanian markings. A nice simple kit, went togetther without any mahor issues. One thing to watch out for is this is a determined tail sitter. Even with the nose crammed with weight, I had to use a wire prop. Colour used was overall Tamiya XF+16 Aluminium. Decals are Blue Rider sheet No BR219.
