  1. The quickboost fans are far far far superior to the kit fans and I’d highly recommend as they are such a visible part. I didn’t have too much of an issue with the Qb fans but some sanding was required to make it flush so it’s not a perfect drop fit. Some photos of my 1/48 Italeri A10 I completed in 2020 with the quickboost fans
  2. Thank you for the kind words everyone
  3. Hello everyone Here is my gwh MiG29SMT finished after 3 months. Aftermarket used was a resin metallic details K36DM ejection seat , metallic details exhausts , Quinta 3D cockpit , reskit wheels , mini world metal pitot tube and begemot stencils. I also cut out the thick plastic static dischargers and replaced them with the much more accurate MiG master model ones made of metal. I used maketar masks to airbrush the red star insiginias and added some lead wiring for the landing gear. The camo was painted using the MRP MiG29SMT colours and the metallic r
  4. This is my mig29 smt at its current state after painting prior to post shading. I do agree the green is bit on the darkish side but the real ones also had significant variations
  5. Hi I am currently doing a MiG29SMT. The colours you need for the splinter camo are MRP284 - light grey (for lower surfaces) MRP 287 - light green grey (for upper camo) MRP288 - dark green grey (for upper camo) If you wish to use Akan it’s 63051 for the lower grey and 63093 for the upper green grey. Personally I will use the MRP paints even though I have the Akan since I find MRP to spray better and is more resilient. Hope this helps.
  6. Hello everyone. Just finished my 1/32 Me 262A from Revell which is the first for me in this scale.The kit has nice overall detail but the fit of a lot of parts is very poor. Aftermarket used were eduard PE , resin wheels , master pitot , quickboost Revi gunsight and HGW belts. Using the new 1manarmy masking set I masked and airbrushed every stencil and insignia on the kit. Paints used were mostly MRP. Regards from India
  7. Thanks for the tip. I thought of doing that by using the kits pitot and inserting the master pitot. The other company which makes a pitot is this one from mini world. Anyway I decided to order the quickboost nose , the mini world pitot and a new gwh mig29 9-12 early kit. The plan is if the resin nose fits I have a full mig29 kit or else I’ll just use it for spare parts for this build. Costly mistake to make i know.
  8. Nope , I rushed the process and thought I can sand the tip of the nose to make it more “pointy” to accommodate the smaller master pitot which is meant for the academy kit. anyway I was hoping if anyone here had the quickboost nose cone and if it fit the gwh fulcrum. Which leads me to another question , is the nose cone for the smt the same as the A version ?
  9. Hello everyone While trying to sand the radome on my mig29 smt to integrate the master model pilot I sanded so much that the radome is unusable. I tried the spare part route with no luck as gwh doesn’t respond to any enquiries Before I splurge on buying a new kit to get spares I noticed there’s a quickboost resin nose for the MiG29 meant for the academy kit. Has anyone used this on the gwh kit ? thanks
  10. Hi I’m no expert but I’d say you are using way too little thinner . Couple drops of thinner specially for mr hobby is not enough. I generally mix 50% levelling thinner to 50% paint which would result in the paint being the consistency of skimmed milk and airbrush around 18-20 psi Like you I did struggle with the same issues and I found my paint was not being thinned enough. And mr color / mr hobby paint I find is quite thick out of the bottle and hence needs a lot of thinner
  11. Has anyone here got their kit ? I ordered mine from luckymodel via slow boat so I won’t see it till 2021 I think would love to hear opinions about the kit from those who have it
  12. Hi guys I have seen a few of my favourite hobby retailers stocking the Quinta 3D decals. They look quite interesting and definitely more “3D” than the flat eduard pe Before I go splurge , I was wondering if anyone here has seen these in person and if so what their opinions are.
  13. I doubt we will see this kit or any new kits till this pandemic stops
  14. I am definitely curious. If they are indeed as good as they look I can see a lot of business for him. I hope he considers expanding to more aircraft
  15. Thank you ! The italeri kit is horrible in the cockpit area and a resin replacement is mandatory
