  1. This is not the scale or subject I usually build... Every year the modelling club i'm a member of, the South Australian Plastic Modellers Association, at the December meeting get members to bring an unwanted kit wrapped up and everyone takes a number and that's the kit you receive. As there is no January meeting, the idea is to have them built for the February meeting. Kits vary from unwanted, to being a bit on the crappy side. So I ended up with this 1:144 scale F-16. Firstly this is not my scale. I am a devoted 1:72 builder and the aircraft I normally build would be u
  2. The 1:72 Zvezda kit of the Mi-8T built in Indian markings. Build was generally ok. A bit of filler needed in places. Some of the cabin windows fell out, so ended up using Kristal Klear. Overall Model Master 1730 grey. Used Begemot Decals sheet No 72-012. Build Progress Video
  3. The 1:72 Heller kit of the Me-163B built as an aircraft captured and terst flown by the Russians. A quick and easy build as the Heller kit is a simple build. Colours used are Model Master 1730 grey on the underside and SMS PL77 green on the upperside. Decals used are some Hobby boss MiG-15 decals from the spares file. Build Progress Video
  4. Nice build. didn’t know GWH were venturing into 1:72 scale land... Thought they were only interested in 1:48 scale. will have to look out for one of these.
  5. The 1:72 Eduard kit of the L-39 built in Armenian markings using decals from Linden Hill. Only real issue with the build was the gap between the upper side of the wing and fuselage was hard to get at due to the position of the intakes. Underside colour is Model Master 17.30 grey, upper side colours are SMS PL92 brown and SMS PL31 green. Yellow parts are SMS PL05 yellow. Yellow is not an easy colour to work with and posed a few problems and came out looking a bit thick. Decals are Linden Hill Decals sheet No LHD72009. Generall no issues with the decals, but s
  6. The 1:72 Trumpeter kit of the later model Su-15 built in Soviet markings. This kit did pose a few issues around the cockpit and the underside of the fuselage. The rest of it was generally ok. Overall SMS PMT09 aluminium. Decals are the kit decals which went on ok. Build Progress Video
  7. The 1:72 Hasegawa Su-27 released in a limited edition Ukrainian Digital Camouflage boxing. The main reason I got one as I thought doing that scheme with decals made for the kit would be my only hope of trying to do that scheme. Quite a nice build and fit is generally good. Painting the AA-10 Alamo missiles had it's moments... Masking the fins was a bit problematic. the AA-11 Archer missiles are from the spares box as the kit ones had separate fins which proved too fiddly. Painted overall SMS PL79 blue. The decals posed no real problems, although a couple of
  8. I have built the single seater. Link to video below. Build Video
  9. The 1:72 Hobby Boss kit of the two seat MiG-15UTI built in Cuban markings using Aztec Decals sheet No 72-047. A nice simple build, but beware it needs a lot of nose weight and there isn't much room for it. Overall SMS PMT09 aluminium. No issues with the Aztec Decals decals and the wing walk decals off a leftover Airfix MiG-15 sheet. Build Progress Video
