  1. GWH Su-35S building

    Well, I thought this kit is is not yet released and that this is a test build before releasing it, but I saw it in stock on luckymodel. I can see on those pictures at lucky model that this line across the fuselage is a bit more visible than others, it might be the light though. Well, it does botters me a bit, but not so much to skip this beautiful kit. I'll go grab one

    generally no, it was more for the practice. you can see some traces of it when you look through the door :) I mostly use tamiya dark brown wash, sometimes combined with light brown. I also use alclad dirt&grime wash, for some effects - but this wash is very very light, and can be used for some interesting effects. First, when I bought it I wanted to throw it in the garbage, but from time to time I found use for it - for very subtle wash effect, and sometimes good as a filter. Now I can't live without it :) I rarely use pure black, although it might look like black somewhere, but It isn't. black would look a lot blackier :)) Thank you all, glad you like it!
  3. 1/32 Mosquito Tamiya wip

    Hello everyone, here are some new progress pictures. I've used Eduard brassin set, but with replacement barrels from master model and also I've used Baracuda ammo chutes, since I've found them to be nicer (there is really no need to buy extra chutes, but I had these from before because at first I didn't plan to use eduard set. However it is huge improvement. I will paint barrels at the end. I've also decided to open the area with radiators. One will be mounted, and one will be on the base. Bye for now!
  4. Yet another 1/48 Tamiya F-14A (updated 21 Feb)

    Yes, they are pretty different, for different effects. I don't think that the dark brown is a light brown simply darkened with black. You shoud get both, you'll find it useful for different effects And great, clean work so far. Makes me wanna continue mine... Thanks for the grey wash pic. I avoid it since I thought it was too light
  5. 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-35S Flanker-E, Russian Air Force, 2014

    Beautiful work!! I like the engines covers and nozzels, very artistic. I am waiting for GWH one, but seeing this one I am considering KH now. Seems like it has nice surface details. Generally I like KH kits, no matter what some other might say.
  6. 1/48 Zoukei Mura HORTEN 229 finished

    yeah, you are right I am aware, in fact there are quite a few other things that could use more love, besides the ones you mention. but beside that it was acceptable in my head, as is, that's why I've put it in the display section the only thing that wasn't acceptable in my head is that tab for loose engine, but I've noticed that too late, after constructing the frame which is very fragile, so I passed. but then again, I tried to justify that to myself by saying that they must had some tab for engine frame, maybe it was just like this one thanks all again, glad you like it
  7. 1/48 Zoukei Mura HORTEN 229 finished

    Hi, thanks pete. The kit is stunning. I did add/modify few things. I've opened the hatch over the aux gearbox, to the left of the cockpit, also opened those two tiny oval hatches in front, and those two hatch also, that have covers near them. I've added wooden triangle planks, on the rear, as a part of the inner structure. If you are considering to display without one or both engines, you might wanna engrave the lines on the inners side of the fuselage, since it is quite visible. I've added various wires to the engine and on the frame wortk This kit is insanely engineered (in a good way :)), very complex, but all you have to do is follow instructions, and don't skip steps, and of chourse double check and dry fit before you glue in place.
  8. Hi, here are pictures of Horten 229 in 1/48 scale. Well, it is not in fact finished, I still need to do some cleaning and add bits and fix some parts. I didn't still add hatches and brakes, since I had an accident with one brake and one hatch leg, so need to fix it. Upper part is glued but only on some points and very lightly, so it can be removed. Inner areas are completely engraved since it came with no details. those wooden planks at the back are scrathcbuilt. Hope you like it, cheers, Marko
  9. Sorry, wrong subforum, please delete. Thanks

    Hi, here are some fresh photos of current progress: Thanks for watching!
  13. 1/32 Mosquito Tamiya wip

    Hi shan, yes mostly the are. For some I knew where they are, so I improvised with the shape. There are quite a lot of wires and cables on both sides, I wouldn't be wrong if I add more. and thanks allfor compliments
  14. Hi, here are some progress pictures. I've added the wires (streched sprue). Instrument panel is from the kit. I' ve received the eduard brassin engines - that has to be the best set I've seen, and I've seen a lot. Cheers!!
