  1. B-2 Spirit / 1/72

    Aigore, Thadeus, Thanks much! :) Perhaps just the landing gear should open and close.....
  2. B-2 Spirit / 1/72

    Buongiorno gents! This is one ginormous kit for its scale and quite iconic as well. The B-2 Spirit built by Northrop at the end of the Cold War era, still majestic today, and a plane that i`ve always admire: The oob decals let you choose between 3 airframes, i`ll probably choose the Spirit of New York. And i just open this theme, but will not start building it, cause i have to first finish my other Northrop masterpiece - the F-23A. About the kit - there are several great reviews here and there, so check out only the glimpse over the content: The packing is flawless and fortunately that`s the box design that i liked the most, the black one. About the size of this beast - i`m speechless....

    The big updade is going nicely... So besides from the major edit (conversion) of the upper fuselage, a couple of small things are done too. The IR pod with the sensor and the transparent covering. It is yet to be tinted and the fraime to be painted, nevertheless:

    Warrup guys! :) The main stage of the conversion is done. Finally. A couple of pics after the filling with a concoction of CA glue, shavings of 2 types of plastic, and dry kit powder. It dries slowly, but the waiting is worth it - it becomes one with the rest of the surfaces, solid, and thus easy for sanding. after the first major sanding:

    I doubled the thickness of the intake lips from the outer side, first to lmake them ook a little bigger and two to have more space when sanding the insides. And i also scratchbuilt the infrared provision under the nose section. Still a little bit more sanding and polishing to come:

  12. F-23A Black Widow II

    The engine nacelles are basically prepped. Still some more fillings and sandings, but the overwhelming part is done. Here are the gaps right infront of the nozzles filled with stock, and the nacelles are untouched: Then after alot of sanding and filling and sanding... And here they are prepped - smoothened, rounded, shiny: Now - the negative curves between the nacelles...

  14. F-23A Black Widow II

    A little up on the intakes - the reshapement from the outer side is done. The lips recieved a small extension, which will be cut in a zig-zag pattern, and then the diffuser cones will enter on the upper side. Here are these parts separately: ... and a couple more angles testfited:
