  1. Excellent ! Thanks Jemel , I'll do just that πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
  2. Hello guys, I have set hands on a Two Bobs decal sheet for the CAS Viper and I'm wondering which kit can be used to render it ? I've understood that I need an F-16C block 25, can obtained it from the Tamiya Block 25/35 kit? Or do I need to search in the Hasegawa direction ? Thanks a lot for your inputs. Best, Stef (#6)
  3. Hello, I'm sorry I can't answer directly to your questions. However, I've been building this kit in the C version offered in the box and can point you to some issues. The turbine exhaust is protruding too much from the body opening. Add some weight in the nose, otherwise you'll get a tail seater (don't ask me how I know that πŸ˜…) The aerial atop body is too thick and should be redone out of plasticard. Otherwise a fine kit nicely detailed. To do the C version one should get armament from the old Revell/Monogram kit and make the cargo doors open.
  4. That's corrected. Thank you for the head-up, @Dafixer
  5. Hello guys, Here's my last completed model, the Zvezda, 1/48 Lavochkin La-5FN, white 22, from 2 GIAP (Aviation regiment of the Guard). The yellow scribing reads "Mongolsky Arat", workers of Mongolia, whose donation funded 12 aircrafts in the squadron. This the first of the Zvezda's "new tooling", and was build out of the box, decals from the Avalon range. Quite easy build but for the soft plastic and the engine cowling is a bit tricky, as there are lots of parts to align. Paints from the Gunze acryl range, various mixes of RLM76 as basis, with black and blue.
  6. Really nice job. and the tea bag trick is really smart ! πŸ™‚
  7. Hello, Here's my last completion, the Hasegawa 1/48 P-40E. Anice and easy kit, except that I booed the rear glazing , wrong cement. Hope you'll like her. Best, Stef (#6)
  8. Nice job, you nailed the color and weathering ! Spot on
  9. Hello, Top notch painting and weathering, these planes were taking a lot of abuse !
  10. Hello guys, Here's my last complete model, a P-38J 15 LO, from 1st Lt Clark Livingston, 392nd FS, 367th FG, seen at Juvincourt, France Dec. 1944. The Hasegawa kit is a bit of a challenge and has been fighting all the way. Paints used are AK extrem metal over a Gunze lacquer gloss black base, other shades from the Gunze acryl range. Hope you'll like her. As usual comments an critics most welcome.

    Georgeous! Even if this Su-17 is reputed having its issues and a dog to build, indeed that's a nice result.
