  1. 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
  2. Hello fellow modelers, This project had started from the April, but due to my limited time the progress was very slow and I didn't managed to post earlier. The kit I chose was Eduard's Fw 190 D-9 Late #8189 profi pack. I started assembling the first parts (cockpit, some gun bay parts, gears etc.) and then I continued with the priming. Afterwards I painted the cockpit and cockpits sidewalls with AK true metal silver, I used this layer as a base for the chipping. Then I painted using mostly AK's 3rd gen colors. Unfortunate
  3. Hello, I just received the new 1/48 Kinetic MQ-9, actually the original SkunkModelWorks with new decals. I will build it as one of the recently armed Reapers deployed by the French Armée de l'Air in Niger in support of Operation Barkhane. More specifically it will be 709-EH-132 Arnaud
  4. 17 years ago I emailed Flankerman and asked if he had any pictures of the 1988 Su-27M/Su-35 prototype that was later left at Monino. He very kindly got back to me with a goldmine. The reference photos he sent me were a game changer as he had discovered the disruptive scheme was mirrored underneath and had a bundle of photos to illustrate it. I loved the Ferris like camouflage but also the new Su-27M nose profile with the traditional cropped fins as later Su-27Ms had the squared tips. I did all the hard work expected of an Academy and Sol conversion way back then and put it away; i
  5. Incredibly this is my 8th finished model this year. This has been part finished for a good 15 years, but very happy with how it turned out. Only problem was the decals which were very fragile and cracked and shattered very easily. The yellow leading edge markings were especially bad and pretty much unusable. The date on the sheet was 2003, and they've been in the loft for most of the past 17 years so perhaps I shouldn't be surprised...…I ended up raiding the decals folder for some yellow markings from an old Tamiya F-84 Thunderjet Not perfect but pulled me out of a hole. The a
  6. Hello! I’ve always liked Aggressor’s scheme for the Eagles, so as soon I got a F-15C kit, I went after the right decal set for this scale. They’re from Two Bobs and everything else is OOB. I scratch built the ACMI pod from a AIM-9, so this bird is in the normal configuration for ACM training, with the pod and a captive AIM-9. Kit was ok, except for the rear compartment lid that had to be well sanded so the canopy could fit closed, even tough is not perfect. Hope you enjoy! Cheers
  7. Good day folks, My second post after a long long time in lurk mode. Kit is a Tamiya 1/48 f-16cj. Constructing the basic block 50 of one of the birds in Misawa. Has been done by people before me by the hundreds, but here is another. This first post of the WIP is some pics I documented up until now. The aircraft is waiting for further progress (ie. When the wifey takes a few days to do lady things with her friends). Off topic: she doesnt know I have an airbrush and compressor. Its hidden inside the bed on the side without the drawers. If shes here, no big paintwork.
  8. Hi all! Back again with my latest completed project, the 1/48 Academy Su-30MK2 Flanker-G of Tentara Nasional Indonesia Angkatan Udara (Indonesian Air Force), circa 2014. This model was inspired by my wife, Cicila, who is from Indonesia. This model is now proudly displayed in our living room and she is very happy with it! Having some issues posting this post in it's entirety, so I will break it up into multiple posts...
  9. I bought this sheet second hand a while back only to discover it came without instructions. Scan, hi-res photo or even a photocopy will do. Thanks.
  10. I just finished reading a great book that was suggested on these forums, Warpath Across the Pacific, and thanks to all those brave men that served in that unit. Anyway I want to try and build an example of a b-25 from each of the squadrons. I am finding that many of the marking from these units are out of production and available at ridiculous prices. Looking for a reasonable source for markings. By the way I have already done a B-25J gun nose from the 498th, so I just need the 499,500,501. Thanks Geoff M
  11. Number 7 complete for the year. This model sat, like so many of my stalled builds, partially assembled and covered in primer, probably for at least 5 years. The HobbyBoss kit is something of a throwback. I know there have been complaints about it's accuracy, which I won't comment on (as I don't care enough), but it reminds me of the classic Monogram and Hasegawa kits of the 80s. It's a big, chunky model, well detailed in some places, a bit simplistic in others. It goes together quickly and easily, but not necessarily well I chose to build mine as an in-
  12. Hello fellow enthusiasts, I have searched everywhere I can to locate the Caracal Decals CD48048, which is the 1:48 decal sheet for the YF-23 kit by Hobbyboss. No one has them in stock anywhere. If anyone has this sheet and wouldnt mind parting with it, I have cash on hand and would love to buy it off you. I am interested in the full sheet, but I will not hesitate to buy partials or partly used decal sheets. Anything helps! Thanks guys, JC
  13. Hellow fellow modelers. I am looking to buy a 1/48 F 4E Phantom II. My plan is to build a HAF F 4E AUP (as the one in the picture). I have troubles finding a F 4E in 1/48. Can I modify a different version in F 4E standards?
  14. Thought I should start this one, as a in-between-other-stuff project. More emphasis will be given to the external surfaces and I will try to stay away from any complex additions etc... So, I begun with adding a few panel lines and creating some stretched metal effect.
  15. I'm considering building an early, Cold War AH-64 using Monogram's old 1/48th scale kit. But this time around I'd rather not try to clean up Monogram's doughy, sink-marked AGM-114 Hellfire missiles. After some quick investigation, I think this Eduard kit can successfully represent early AGM-114s. Although it looks like I might have to use the Monogram rack and rails. Thoughts? Warnings? Advice?
  16. Hello everyone This is an Iranian Phantom from Hasegawa in 1/48 scale (OOB) presented In-Flight. This model represents a Phantom from 9th TFB in Bandar Abbass city at south of Iran during a CAP mission during war in 1980’s. Colors are Tamiya and Mr.hobby. Decals are from Print Scale. The stand comes from one of my vintage 1970’s United States Air Force F-4 Phantom II desk model. Hope you enjoy.

  17. So I finally finished this model. I was rather upset at how warped the kit was, but so be it. I had the Draw decals for the Cal Fire version and that's what got me to finish the model. I used a resin cockpit that didn't quite fit. I like white and red planes so this fits my little collection quite well.
  18. Hello All.... Old build .. Posting the pictures now.... Out Of Box build with no enhancements anywhere. The kit was a MCP kit so had to do basic primer and preshade to bring all the parts in one uniform color... Super kit to build... I love the color of this scheme just had to have one ... Love the F4 shape too ... So will be adding more to the Display.. ... ;-). Enjoy the pics.....

  20. I used to model as a child, and now I decided to get back to the hobby. For such I chose the GWH 1/48 Su-35S, I love how the Su-27 aircraft family looks, and Ive seen some awesome reviews of this kit online. To the point, mine arrived a few days ago from China, and as I wait for the rest of the stuff I need for the build to arrive, I figured I would start this topic, and adress some of the first questions that came to my mind regarding the build. Starting by some doubts regarding which joints are and wich joints arent panel lines: The joints that have BLUE lines paralel t
  21. 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
  22. Anyone familiar with this kit? Is it any good at all? Is the shape at least relatively accurate? I know it is an old kit and there are better kits but tis "may NOT" mean that it is still not a good kit. I have put together a lot of old kits that were still good models.
  23. Set for correcting the inlet cone of the Su-17/Su-22 model in 1/48 scale manufactured by Kitty Hawk/Hobbyboss. Cast from polyurethane resin. For photo painted silver and black.
  24. Set for correcting the shape and size of wing fences of the Su-17/Su-22 model in 1/48 scale manufactured by Kitty Hawk. Cast from polyurethane resin.
  25. I have been considering a new project: I want to do Lt. Lochridge's F6F-3 (#117, "Lolly") as featured in the most recent release of the 1/48 Eduard kit. The deal is that I prefer to use the Hasegawa model. I was wondering if anyone has the decals left over that they would be willing to part with. I would appreciate it! (Also posted in buy/sell)
