  1. My first armor model in ten years and if I am not mistaken, only third in my "modelling career". Zvezda 1:72 - the fit is great and so are the details, it is only a shame that Zvezda doesn't offer the current versions as well (this one is operationally used only by Kazakhstan).

  2. Excellent Tamiya model, which made me a few problems at the start of the build, but luckily, I could remedy the problem. First time using Quinta 3D cockpit decals only to realize, that there is no option of open cockpit. Oh well, at least the canopy has the clearest clear plastic I have ever seen in a model.

  3. Second addition to my Battle of Midway 80th anniversary build. After some excellent 1:700 ships (and supposedly 1:72 armor), Flyhawk released their first 1:72 aircraft and they nailed it the first time. There are a few minor things like open dive flaps (upper part should be closed), wrong stencils font and supposedly slightly wrong shape of the upper cowling transition towards the windshield, this is still an excellent first effort and just yesterday SBD-2 was announced. The model represents Richard Best's aircraft just before flying to his first mission of the day, when
  4. Thank you very much, Greg! This new tool kits with their sharp moulding and panel lines, indeed appear bigger than they are.
  5. Excellent Arma Hobby model. John S. Thatch's aircraft after the first action of Battle of Midway where he shot down three Japanese aircraft. Mostly out of the box model, with just a few scratch items and a riveting job.

  6. Love it! Really sharp build, especially with tricky colours and such a mod. But you've done it perfectly!
  7. How about making a diver's (surface marker) buoy? Thus you'd have a line down attached directly to the diver.
  8. There is a payment system, that works in a similar way to paypal, that I've seen several Russian modelling companies using now. The name escapes my mind though.
  9. Thank you! Thank you! Too many other projects in queue to start on them. But I'll probably build another TBD sometime in the future, in a dive, releasing the bomb and all weathered up! As for the weathering - not much. I just did light postshading with base blue colour + some lower grey and if the effect seemed too pronounced, blended it with diluted top blue grey. Other than that, a little bit of oils just to pop up some panel lines and tie together the markings and the paint.
  10. Here they are, both finished. I'll post them in the Gallery, as soon as I finish a simple base and some figures.
