  1. Building period Aircraft: 5 months (Dec 2021- April 2022) Accessories and diorama: 3 months (April 2022- July 2022) Aircraft mostly OOB except D&W landing gears, resin nozzles, Master metal dischargers. WIP thread:
  2. New tooled Italeri kit in 1/48 scale - F-35B. Will be released in August 2022. Decal for 6 aircraft - US Marines, RAF UK, Marina Italy.
  3. Announcement from Arma Models - Kamov Ka-52 Alligator in 1/48 scale. It is not yet clear whether this will be a plastic model, or resin molded using technology. Expected in September/October.
  4. Dear Modellers I finally managed to get this shake and bake kit together. Was a loong shaking period, thats for sure. Tamiya Kit in 1/48 scale. Eduard Cockpit inside with Quinta Decals, Reedoak Pilots, KA and Reskit exhaust mix. Nose cam and probes aftermarket, Eduard Missiles Models. Tamiya and Gunze acrylic colours and a lot of oils on top of it. No washing worth mentioning Enjoy Oh, it isn`t dead on accurate, but i don`t care (edit: anymore) I just wanted a grimey, grey Tomcat with the Skull n Bones-Scheme, since my wish for a Tomcat model
  5. *PENDING* For one of the following: Tamiya 1/48 F-14 (any variant) Hobby Boss 1/48 F-111C/D or FB-111A Great Wall 1/48 F-15C
  6. Good Morning Eagle fans! Inspired by my latest decal release I have to start an F-15C from my favorite USAFE Air Base Bitburg. I choose the 80-0013 or balls 13 of Captain Greg Clasen "The Claw" because our last names are quite familia and his Eagle was full of stencils and panel numbering. As for the stencils and panel numbers I will use this set: All decals or just the stencils are available here: https://www.pkproductions.de/shop/
  7. 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
  8. Hi all! Back again with my freshly completed 1/48 Hasegawa F-22A Raptor. So when considering building a Raptor, two things usually come to mind before starting: How to handle the metallic "Raptor Sheen" and "Gold Iridium" tinted canopy. I have seen various approaches to solve these issues, with varying degrees of effectiveness. But since I like to experiment and try new methods, I decided to try techniques for both that I had not yet seen done. For the "Raptor Sheen", I decided to paint the normal camo colors (non-metallic), and then add a light coat of Alclad Air
  9. Good day to you all, It took a while, but finished (a while ago, but haven't posted until now) - 1/48 Tamiya F-16CJ (14FS Misawa). I threw all the goodies at it I could and scratch build areas where applicable. Goodies included: Eduard BIG set Eduard aim-120cs, aim-9x, sniper pod, agm-88 Eduard wheels Meng satellite guided bombs (for the gbu-31 v3) Speed Hunter Graphics SEAD Specialists Master pitot and aoa probes Master static wicks KA models exhaust GT Resin left hand side ecm pod I may have left some out and w
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. A quyick build to get the year started. Monogram golden oldie built quickly so I can start an F-16 for the group build that is starting. Monogram 1/48 F-15A #5801 Caracal Decals F-15 The Early Years Pics
  14. Hi! I am looking for a GPU-5/A in 1/48, for example of the Hasegawa Aircraft Weapon Set C. If anyone has this set and doesn't need the pod, I will gladly take it (decals are not needed). I live in Austria, so it would be preferably from someone in Europe to keep shipping costs low 😉 Kind regards, Markus
  15. Simply the BEST Flanker kit in any scale: Great Wall Hobby GWH Flanker family, with adequate detail level by easy+straightforward building experience. I simply hate those over-engineered mode kits(if you still call them model kits) because it's simply waste of my precious time and energy. Afterall the final effect is up to your skill, not the so called "details" from kit part number!! Will definitely build more of GWH Flanker kits. Have a nice weekend~
  16. As a kid I often saw A-10s from the first operational squadron flying up and down Myrtle Beach, SC. Years later when out working near Ft Bragg I frequently watched A-10s doing gun runs with their 30mm GAU-8 gatling gun and it's bizarre, ear tickling sound (Pope AFB at Ft Bragg had the Flying Tigers based there for a spell). The kit is the old Tamiya as it was based on the early preproduction aircraft and lacked many features on production aircraft (chaff/flare launchers etc) and other bumps that featured on production aircraft. It's old but a pretty good kit, accurate shape and pan
  17. HELLO AND GREETINGS FROM ALGERIA ! 😀 I present to you my 1/48 Trumpeter Sukhoi Su-24 M, known as the copycat of the F-111. The Fencer is used by the Algerian Air Force since the '90's and had three or four overhauls since. Algerian Fencers had also upgrades; especially in their electronics. The kit was a little disapontement; It needed a lot of correction works , the exhaust part is wrongly built by Trumpeter. The kit was improved with the SU-24 Exterior PE made by Eduard, added a metal nose antenna from Master Model and some home made decals (cockpit dashboard, instruments, insign
  18. 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.
  19. Hello guys, Here is my last completed build and the first of 2022. This is the Italeri reboxing of the Kinetic kit. It's a plane from the french AF Escadron 3/3 Ardennes during Operation Musketeer (Suez canal crisis, 1956), based in Akrotiri, Cyprus. The ID stripes are not the usual Yellow/black but rather midstone and white/black. The number of allied aircraft on base (over 200) led to a lack of yellow paint and use of replacement hues. As usual your comments and inputs are most welcome. Stef (#6)
  20. Something a little different and not quite out of the box. I took Revell's (Monogram?) A-6E, Steel Beach KA-6D conversion, Quinta KA-6D 3D decals for the cockpit and AOA Decals to create a KA-6D Intruder. The Steel Beach kit was designed for the Kinetic kit but it worked fine with the Revell kit. I used AOA Decals 48-006 to model a KA-6D from VA-196 Main Battery from the 1972-73 time period. Hope you like it. Thanks for looking Geoff M
  21. 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)
  22. Hi all! Does anyone have a source for either an original or replacement canopy (more precisely the sliding hood) for the 1/48 HASEGAWA F4U-4? The original in my kit was damaged when removing it from the sprue tree and a Falcon replacement I received from an eBay user last year was crushed in the mail. The kit is mostly built with the ancient Verlinden cockpit and flaps set and some True Details wheels. I just need the canopy to get it painted in GSB and wrapped up with decals. Thanks in advance! Mike B
  23. Hi everyone! As painting is impossible in my modeling room currently (30 Celsius in the evenings nowadays), I set aside my Phantom project for a while and restarted an older project - Italeri Super Hornet. Many people wrote reviews about this kit's flaws and inaccuracies so I won't go into the details. We know this is not a Hasegawa offering, period. I decided to spice it up with scratchbuilding some details. Planned things: cockpit and canopy details, gun/radar bay, opened nose cone and extended radar equipment, avionics bays, folded wings wing and dropped flaps. I started this model years
  24. Hi folks. Apparently, when it comes to Hornets, all the fuss is about the new Meng kit (and to some extent Hobby Boss kit). And I'd love to build them both (even better, along the Revell, Hasegawa and Italeri kits). However, I noticed I have a lot of good to say about the Hasegawa legacy Hornet, even being as good as much more modern Kinetic kit. Considering I've built one and a lot of time ago, I suppose its finally time to put my money where my mouth is, right? And it just happens to be a time when I ran out of stash storage space so I need to get rid of some boxes! The
  25. Hi comrades! Here is my take on old kit. Lot's of aftermarket used, some corrections were scratch-built. Thanks for looking
