  1. A-10C Thunderbolt in 1:48 Su-22M-3 in 1:48 Fiat G-91R1/3 in 1:48 and 1:32
  2. My friend Matthias Becker finished this excellent M2000C in 1:32 with the Hataka Orange line paints. The colors are looking very close to the original.
  3. Two weeks ago, I got a bunch of sets from this new manufacturer and I confirm, that the quality is very good. He also is a reliable trader. He pleased me to confirm, if anything was o.k., which actually was the case.
  4. Where is this damned kink in the wing? 🤓 No, this model is looking in a word superb! I am looking forward to get it here in Germany. G.W.H. is my favourite kit manufacturer now and also looking forward to the single seater. Nice!
  5. Looks fantastic! I am looking forward to both kits, one and dual seaters!
  6. May be a hint to the next G.W.H. project after the Su-27?
  7. Yes, this is very true! I am just reminding to the fantastic Kecskemet Air Show 2013 with the Russian Su-27 team display twice during the weekend, on Saturday evening and Sunday noon during excellent weather conditions, unforgettable! I have hoped for another show there since then, but unfortinately it never took place. Now, I got some hints about the reasons behind. If Eday can not be held this year, I am hoping for another Moson Show next year. Even if the future is looking not so bright at the moment, I am pleased that such fantastic products, like the G.W.H. Su-27 h
  8. Yes, the mistake in the transistion from the engine ducts to the wings is obvious, but it is not that fundamental making the kit worse or unbuildable. I only have realized it with the direct comparison from the original and model photo. Apart from that, probably I never took notice from it. Anyway, it can be remedied with a bit of sandpaper and putty without too much work. I just realized, that Kinetic will rerelease the F-5A kit in 1:48 soon. It is a pleasant little kit and hopefully, they will improve the quality of the clear parts in the new edition.
  9. I am very sad about this, but fully understand the decision! Now, I can cancel my chamber in a hotel in the nice city of Györ. Hopefully, the circumstances for Mosonshow 2021 will be much better and it can shine as bright as the shows in previous years. Kind regards Christian
  10. This is true! Since Zvezda has opened their line of modern Russian fighters and helicopters in 1:48, they are a likely candidate (among others) for replacing the Trumpeter kits.
  11. After I was badly disappointed by the Revell 2020 newslist a couple of minutes ago, this is really good news! It seems, that the jet modellers have to rely on the new manufacturers from Far East for really new kits, rather than the classic ones, like Revell, Hasegawa or Airfix. And there is another one announced by Kitty Hawk. Looking forward to the new G.W.H. Su-27UB!
  12. A new mold A-10C Thunderbolt would be nice! 😄
  13. I am pleased to tell that I am a happy customer from Danny since his first efforts in 1987, when I bought a set of Belgian AF F-16 markings in 1:32 and 48 at the IPMS-Belgium National Convention in September 1987 at the Brussels Aviation Museum. Since then, I purchased a lot of DACO decals, books and conversion kits. I never regret any Belgian Franc and Euro spent in his poducts, which are a state of the art and beside this, he his a nice guy to talk with! Sometimes, he needs some more time for R & D, which can cause delays, but the customer will get a product which is well res
  14. This is good news, because details about the MiG-21bis are not that well published. The -MF is much better unfold, the excellent WWP books spontaneously coming in my mind. If I would be aware in the 80s and 90s, that I will become a serious modeller some years later, I should have done a lot of close up pictures then, but I didn't. I only made general shots of military planes and traded the slides with a couple of collagues in Germany and abroad. Shown on the pictures below are the two camouflaged MiG-21bis, which accompanied the yellow 1904 during the display at t
  15. This one showing yellow 1904 returning from the display with two regularly painted MiG-21bis from Turul Squadron This shot was taken in the morning on the Taszar flightline prior to flight activities Almost exactly one year before, I visited Taszar Air Base for my fist time. Gladly, the MiG-21bis were operational and 1904 has flown as well, albeit in tactical camouflage colors.
  16. Thank you Gabor and thank you Eduard for this kit and the decal option fo the all yellow Hungarian "Capeti"! One of my long lasting modeling dreams now can become true. I already got the initial Eduard MiG-21bis when it was released, the corrected Coldwar Studios nose section, decals from HAD and Camel decals from a car modeling source. The HAD decals are one of the earlier releases by SZEGEDI Ferenc and not really satisfying by todays quality standards. At this year' s Mosonshow, while having a 1:48 "CAPETI" in mind, I got two sets by Hungarian numbers from HAD, which I have carefully selecte
  17. @ Raymond Chung: Is a F-104S planned for a later release as well, which was operated by the Italian und Turkish AF?
  18. Shapwise the OEZ/ KP is much more accurate than the Monogram one.
  19. To avoid the much feared paint lifting, only use low tack masking tapes, like Kabuki. You further can reduce adhesion by stick and remove it from the forehead or nose and repeat it one or two times after the tape is no longer sticking, just adhering slightly.
  20. Hello Vitaly Thank you very much for your reply. I try to add more step-by-step photos in the future, but I must confess that I sometimes forget about during the building process, when I am feeling myself always in a state of trance Here, I have compiled some step-by-step photographs and informations about the previously described painting method. At Britmodelle, I recently did the same.
  21. A rought paint : thinner ratio of the "witches´ brew" is: 1 part Hataka Red Line paint 1 part MRP Acrylic Thinner 4 parts Mr. Levelling Thinner 2 parts Tamiya Lacquer Thinner For the future, I will buy more Hataka Red Line sets and hope, that the line will be expanded. There are still some serious gaps to fill, like modern French Armed Forces and Swiss Air Force paint sets to name but a few. Please try this for yourself and share your experience here. Have fun! Here two more pics which show the nice results, which took just a cou
  22. The result is looking convincing and was achieved in a very short time. The "witches brew" is very nice for fine line work with the airbrush and cloggig does not happen at all. It also can be used for large area painting, but due to its low viscosity it does not cover well and many coats are necessary. However, the finish is very smooth and adhesion on plastic is very good. Since it contains some thinners of the hot type, one might assume that the fumes will smell aggressively, but it is not the case fortunately.
  23. Here the result after lifting the masking tape. Please note the misty thin coat along the edges, which shows the demarcation line quite easily for the next step. The ingredients for the following treatment are visible on this picture too. Now, I want to achieve a realistic smooth blending of the light and darker grey tones. With the original Hataka Thinner this is very tricky and time consuming job due to the feared tip clogging. I have experimented with a lot of thinners and fluids recently, but the new MRP Thinner changed life significantly. Now, I am using a highl
