  1. Thanks guys! Actually they come with the kit - it's a special edition of Revell Spitfire with 2 Eddies and 2 variants of decals - either this Aces High or the stage version that Iron Maiden are using on current tour.
  2. I don’t normally build ww2 era planes and even rarer you can find 1:32 subject on my desk. But having Revell release this kit about 6 months before my good friend’s birthday, who is (surprise surprise) a huge Maiden fan, the ever present “what to buy for birthday” question was solved then and there. I am happy how she turned out and the Spit brought the new proud owner to the brink of tears and a huge bear hug 😄 Anyhow, Up the Irons!

  3. Thank you, Ken! Like the Facepalm but I guess it could also be called Flop 😄
  4. New model in my X-plane collection Full review article and gallery: https://vvsmodelling.com/2020/04/28/ilyushin-il-102/
  5. Thanks Ken! Glad you like my work so far. I've spent quite some time trying to figure out the colours. The instructions suggest Humbrol codes but I don't use enamels anymore. As I am painting exclusively with Mr.Paint lacquers now, I was searching their catalog. Blue shouldn't be a problem as I have a bunch for different Flanker variants - in the end, AMT-7 WW2 underside blue seemed a good match. Black was no brainer, dark Green I've decided on SEA Dark Green. Sand, I was searching in their catalog and found a good match - will write it down when I finish the kit in the article. Mid green I used Swedish AF one for the Viggen camo.
  6. Here she is. Took a while but I am satisfied with the result.
  7. Model is now primed and almost ready for painting. Why almost? Because during the photo shoot, I noticed a small crack appeared in the nose, which I have to fix first! The aircraft is a real behemoth. Compared to the MiG-21, it looks like it’s a bigger scale. I imagine its size wouldn’t be an advantage over the battlefield either. Armament to be mounted on the aircraft.
  8. a rather poor out of focus and underexposed photo and details about 10times bigger than real may not be actually representative of quality.
  9. With some time off, being on home readiness every second week, but parenting still taking a considerable chunk of it, I managed to move forward with my Il-102 build. K-36s painted up and ready for installation. Il-102s heavy wings and tail design scream of a tailseater. Combination of lead fishing weights and Uschi van der Rosten Three Green in the nose will hopefully do the trick. Instead of adding engine pods after the fuselage is closed, I'd rather install them before that, thus easily pressing them together against the fuselage surface and minimize the possible gaps. The fuselage is together and cleaned, and I am now working on smoothing out the tail connection to the fuselage.
  10. There's two narrow aluminum strips on the canopy centerline extending from the rear frames for both pilot and RIO about 2/3 forward - crew protection from lightning strikes. If there's a single line through the whole canopy in a scale model kit, that's the result of moulding process and should be eliminated.
  11. Since I started using MrPaint paints, I don't gloss anymore... no problems with silvering, even without polishing.
  12. My first 2020 project finished. The model itself was finished in the last days of 2019 but I needed a bit more time with accessories and the base. In progress shots: https://vvsmodelling.com/2020/03/07/zvezda-172-mig-29smt-fulcrum-build-article/ Built article and full gallery: https://vvsmodelling.com/2020/03/08/mikoyan-mig-29smt-fulcrum/ Some photos for the flavor 😉
  13. The cockpit and gunners position are reasonably detailed for the scale and the decals nicely printed to bring out all the little details. The rear gun assembled and painted and waiting for installation into the rear turret. And the infamous K-36 seat. Anyone that built recent Modelsvit kits have come across one of these. 23 parts for a seat in 1:72! You may have asked 23? He must have made a mistake! No, here's a sprue photo next to a completed one. All those parts go into one seat! But it looks damn fine out of the box.
