  1. The Tiger I was constructed first and was thematically a straight follower of my previous tank, HB T-34 in 1/48. This was clearly a Tamiya kit and went together easily (as opposed to the HB kit) and had crisp details and flash free parts. It comes with a metallic chassis which, according to some modelers, simplifies parts of the suspension details. Could be, but most of it will be hidden behind the typical German multi-wheel chassis assembly anyway. I wanted a machine used on the Eastern front and I wanted it in Tank Gray. TS-4 was used as a base paint and weathering was done with oils, enamel
  2. Hello, I am looking for either the Caracal 48034, or SuperScale 48-1201. I am looking for the Arkansas ANG jets, with the Razorback noseart and engine pod art. If you have either one that you are willing to part with, please let me know. Thanks in advance, A T Lee
  3. This is my recent project. A very nice kit, without any issues, except for the clear parts for the Maverick missiles; they just don’t fit into their places. Used Eduard canopy masks and PE for the cockpit, and metal pitot tube/cannon. Only thing I’d change would be the rubber tires. I mean, they’re ok, but if they had resin, for instance, those would take a better weathering. Decals were also good. Hope you enjoy. Cheers! George
  4. This is my 1/48 Hobbyboss F-14D. It straight OOB with Fightertown decals. My goal was to make it look super weathered. This particular plane wasn't quite this filthy but I'm happy with how it turned out.
  5. MH-60M 'Mike' medium assault (not DAP) JSOC, any build or conversion recs for 1/35 or 1/48?? At last check, JSOC uses 50% of its helos in the MH-60M "medium assault" configuration and is their essential "workhorse" Surely there is some avenue to reproduce this workhorse in either 1/35 aor 1/48 scale, I realize that Cobra Company had a MH-60M upgrade, It may never reappear unfortunately...any ideas, thought, recommendations? What is the closest? the UL airframe was the closest to the one MH-60M uses, not the K or L model Can something be done with the UH-60 / MH-60 B
  6. Today I ordered these decals. What kit do I need to make this happen? Don't matter the company, but a good one will be sought out to use. IE - Hasegawa Any F-16C Block xxxx Hasegawa Kit # XXXX Thanks for the help. Cheers
  7. 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.
  8. Hi there, This my recente project, one of those very nice Eduard Migs 21. Used canopy masks, interior PE and metal pitot tube. No issues at all and, despite being a little bit worried about the “tiger stripes” decals, they turned out great. Very thin and went well with Mr Softer. These aircraft had this commemorative painting only for a relatively short period of time, so I decided to weather just enough to show the dirt that comes from normal flying, i.e., didn’t degraded the paint to have too many scratches and/or chipping. Hope you enjoy! Cheers!
  9. Hellow fellow models!!! My name is Thanos, I am a mechanics student from Athens, Greece. One of my passions are airplanes. I spend the most of my day in home, due to the corona virus outbreak. So, I started scrolling in YouTube and I found lots of aircraft modeling videos. I didn’t waste any time and I bought my first kits, (2 Eduard Spitfires (1/72) and a Kinetic F 16 Block 52+ HAF (1/48), which are actually my favorite aircrafts), paints and an H&S Ultra 2 in 1 airbrush. I had almost no experience in scale modeling (only a Revell A320 and a Revell Leopard 2A6, almost 5 years ago)
  10. Hello, This is my Corsair, a well known and excellent kit from Tamiya. Everything OOB except for the masks for the canopy. No issues at all and the decals were really good. Hope you enjoy. Cheers!
  11. Hello! This is my first finished project this year, the very well known and praised Tamiya P-47 1/48 kit. Nothing to add, really, a superb kit. Only some small stencils did not behave well and…disintegrated. C’est la vie! Since these especific birds didn’t operate for too long, war ending in Europe was months away, I kept the weathering at a minimum, just some dirt from the airfields, but not too many scratches and chipping… Canopy masks from Eduard, guns from Model Masters and seat belts from scratch. Hope you enjoy! Cheers
  12. Hello, This is my last build model - EA-18G from Italeri in 1/48 scale. Model stright from the box, only aftermarket are "Afterburner Decals" and pilots from Hasegawa set. It shows Growler BuNo166856 from VX-9/ September 2008. I hope you like it... All comments are welcome.
  13. Hello Everyone Adi here . . . I wanted to make a Snowy Base for the Finnish AF Hawker Hurricane which I just completed. To make the base I use Plywood and cover this with acrylic putty. I use baking powder to sprinkle the base for the Snow Effect. I make trees using wooden kitchen skewers and single strand wire. For the branches I used dried grass as I did not have access to Woodland Scenics Sea Foam. I make my own flocking using a sponge and I churn it in the mixer. I make two different shades of green. I spray the trees with diluted PVA Glue and sprinkl
  14. Hello Everyone, The Tamiya Hawker Hurricane Mk.I is a Superb kit, although its an Italeri rebox. The kit is a simple straight forward build and its a New tooling for the Hurricane in 1/48 scale. The detail is great out of the box for this scale and the panel lines are not overdone. The overall fit is great too. Decals provided are great with lots of options, a bit thick IMHO. I really liked the Finnish AF colors. The kit is built OOB and no mods are done. The paints used are locally available Acrylics and are airbrushed. For the c
  15. Hi all! Here is my latest completed project, the Hasegawa F-14B Tomcat of VF-103 Jolly Rogers aboard the USS Dwight D Eisenhower in 1998. This project is the only one I have ever started that I did not finish straight through. I finished the cockpit put then put the build on hold as a deadline for an IPMS club contest approached, so I moved on to another project that fit into the theme of that contest. It stayed on hold for over a year before I decided to go back to it as part of an F-14 Group Build on Scalemates. As you know, this is the notorious Hasegawa Tomcat.
  16. F-8J Crusader - VF-24 "CHECKERTAILS" Commander aircraft U.S.NAVY Feb.1974 - kit from Hasegawa in 1:48 scale After a long time I finally managed to finish work on this model ... I hope that it is not bad with it and despite the "mistakes" you will like it ...

  18. Gday everyone, first build post from me in a LOOOOOONG time. Let's see if I can finish this one! Roden's T-28 came up cheap on internet auction site, and was promptly added to the stash. A current mood mojo of 1/48 trainers saw the trojan making it's way promptly to the bench. The kit is.... rough. Very nice detailing, albeit buried under plenty of flash. HEAVY scribed panel lines, ordinary fit and the decals. Ugh the decals. More on them later. I'm using photo bucket for pic transfer and I'm not sure how the quality of the pics will be on these pages. Com
  19. Hi there! Just finished this nice Tamiya kit. Everything OOB and the only real flaw was one of the decals sheet, the smaller one, most stencils. Without exception, all of them cracked as soon as I tried to move them. I used warm water, cold water, decal solution, you name it, with no success. In some cases I was able to join the pieces and have them in place. But, as I said, a very nice kit. Hope you’ll like it. Cheers!
  20. Anyone have one of these they would be willing to part with (full or partial sheet)? I would prefer to buy, but if there is something you're looking for maybe we can work it out. PM me or you can contact me at gocoogsgo(at)yahoo(dot)com. Thanks.
  21. I’ll be building my next Tamiya cat as one of the first in the fleet - VF-1 Wolfpack’s second 101 bird, which has been modeled a lot. Research is one of the things that really appeals to me in modeling, and this project has given me a lot to learn! For instance: the first VF-1 plane to be painted as NK-101 was this one, BuNo 158627. I believe it was a Block 65 machine. Note the radome without a tan front section, long gun muzzle trough (short cover), the black skunk stripe over the canopy and spine, completely white nose gear doors, pin striping around the NACA intake on the ventr
  22. Hi Everyone! Back once again with my latest completed project, this time the 1/48 Hasegawa A-7E Corsair II in VA-86 Sidewinders markings circa 1978 aboard the USS Nimitz. I have always been attracted to this scheme ever since seeing it in the movie "The Final Countdown". Really love the huge orange diamond on the spine aft of the cockpit. Used the Aires cockpit on this, and the fit is pretty much perfect. Highly recommended for this kit. Also used the Meng Short Range Missiles set for the Sidewinders, Hasegawa Weapons Set A for the mk. 82s, and Hasegawa Weapons Set
  23. Hello Friends, Just finished the F-15DJ of the JASDF in the Aggressor Color Scheme of Sand, Brown and Black. Academy F-15E Strike Eagle kit has been used as a donor kit and built into this F-15DJ. The model is built OOB and no mods have been used. The paints used are locally available acrylic paints. It has taken me around 20 days to build this model and I feel that it still is incomplete. Specially the decals and the stencils. Due to the pandemic I haven't been able to get my hands on the Relevant F-15DJ Decals and Stencils. Thus for th
  24. Hello Everyone, 8th October is celebrated as Indian Air Force Day. 2020 was the 88th Air Force Day for the IAF. I present the Mirage 2000 to commemorate this day. The Mirage 2000 was upgraded by the Indian Air Force and was re designated as Mirage 2000I. The kit is from Kinetic in 1/48 scale and is built Out Of the Box. The build is simple but Kinetic hasn't mentioned much in the instructions about which parts to use for the different variants which can be modeled from one kit. So you will need to refer your references for the particular version you will be building. The
  25. 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.
