  1. Many Thanks everyone. . . . Glad that you like it. . . . 😉
  2. Hello Everyone, My first try at making ocean waves. I use my old Hobbyboss 1/72 Sh-60 Jayhawk kit and I modify this by adding rudimentary pilots, open door and a winch wire. The Rotating blades are made by using Clear Acrylic sheet which was masked and painted with RED White and Yellow Stripes. Black was Painted on the bottom in a fading stroke. The waves are made using silicone rubber and Baking Soda. I put two layers and I think it did a good enough job. The base is basic plywood and topped with foam and acrylic putty. Paints used a
  3. Hello Friends, Just finished the F-15DJ of the JASDF in the Aggressor Color Scheme of Sand, Brown and Black. Academy F-15E Strike Eagle kit has been used as a donor kit and built into this F-15DJ. The model is built OOB and no mods have been used. The paints used are locally available acrylic paints. It has taken me around 20 days to build this model and I feel that it still is incomplete. Specially the decals and the stencils. Due to the pandemic I haven't been able to get my hands on the Relevant F-15DJ Decals and Stencils. Thus for th
  4. I agree with you . . . I have had a hard time too . . What I have accepted is that a lot depends on the photo settings as in the camera settings and the light on the aircraft . .. so I have made peace with accepting an average colour on the aircraft colours and stick with it . . . . Hope it helps. . . . 😀
  5. Hey Thanks for that. !!!! I didn’t know that about the missile hardpoint . . . Thanks. . . .
  6. Hello Everyone, 8th October is celebrated as Indian Air Force Day. 2020 was the 88th Air Force Day for the IAF. I present the Mirage 2000 to commemorate this day. The Mirage 2000 was upgraded by the Indian Air Force and was re designated as Mirage 2000I. The kit is from Kinetic in 1/48 scale and is built Out Of the Box. The build is simple but Kinetic hasn't mentioned much in the instructions about which parts to use for the different variants which can be modeled from one kit. So you will need to refer your references for the particular version you will be building. The
  7. Hello Everyone, The MIG-21 Bison (MIG-21-93) is primarily used by the India Air Force and is an upgraded version of the Later Mig-21s. The aircraft has a new radar and integration of modern avionics and weapons. The donor kit is a Trumpeter MIG-21 MF and is converted into a -93/Bison with various changes and scratchbuilt parts. A new Vac Form cockpit was made at home using a clear sheet. The overwing avionics bays were casted in resin from scratchbuilt masters. The spine is also corrected as the Trumpeter spine is too flat on the top side curve. this was a
  8. Hello Friends, Presenting the Sa315B of the Indian Army. The kit is from Heller and is of the SA313 in 1/48 size. This was modified into the Sa315B. The Model is 100% Brush Painted using locally available acrylics. Stretched Sprue was made using discarded pieces of the kit sprues and was used extensively for the detail and scratch-building. The rear fuselage skeleton was chucked away as it was too thick for this scale. This was made with stretched sprue. More detail was added to this using the same stretched sprue. Cockpit was bare with littl
  9. Hello Everyone. . . Just did a Trumpeter 1:48 scale MIG-27M Flogger J in the Indian Air Force colors. . . . the kit is a decent build but with a few flaws and is a tad bit inaccurate . . . Mostly Trumpeter is making the most of the common moulds . . . The kit is built OOB with added hydraulic lines and adequate modifications to represent the upgraded Mig-27 of the Indian Air Force. Paints used were locally available acrylics. Two glaring problems are the bulgy nose and the same main landing gear carried over from the other Mig-23 kits and not having
  10. Hello Everyone, This is the Hawk MK132 used by the SuryaKiran Aerobatic Team of the Indian Air Force. I have used he HobbyBoss Hawk Mk127 as a base kit and did little modifications to complete this as the Mk132 version. The kit is good with not much fit issues but it is inaccurate in some places. 1. the Nose tip is sharp and has to smoothend out for the correct shape 2. The wings are from a Hawk Mk 1 i think as they have 4 wing fences moulded in ... . HobbyBoss trying to make use of the single mould for all the versions. 3. The The exhaus
  11. Hello Everyone, The build is a MIG29SMT built into an Indian Air Force MIG29UPG taking off on a Wet Runway with Glowing Afterburners. The kit used is a Trumpeter MIG29SMT in 1/72 size. Most of the work done was on making the Flame look realistic enough. The flame is Clear Resin and is lit by using 2 White LEDs housed in the exhaust cans. The model is painted using the bare basic techniques of preshading and light coats of grey color to make this an IAF grey machine. Paints used were acrylics. This was a first trial run to make the Afterbu
  12. Thanks Guys. . . Glad you liked it . . . Do suggest some more diorama ideas with Aircraft. . . Would love to try my hand . . .
  13. If the hole gets big. . . Then put a dab of superglue On the locating pin of the pylon and let dry. . . Now the pylon becomes friction fit
  14. Pylons Friction Fit . . . Drill a smaller hole on the wing . . As in just big enough to take the locating pin of the pylon. . . . Works for all scales IMHO . .. 🙂
