  1. This Hawk comes from Chinese domestic factory Trumpeter. The model was bulit almost straight out of box, except for modifications on wings. I removed the small wing fences that were intended for model Hawk 51, Hawk 60, Hawk 65 and Hawk 67, and added stall strips on the leading edge of wings. The model was painted with white and yellow primers, then painted with Super Italian Red. All paints used were from Gunze. Decals are thin and soft. Several layers of Gunze GX100 clear coats were applied before polishing and applying decals. A few layers of Gunze GX100 clear coats were applied over t
  2. Dear all, I am considering getting the Trumpeter 1/48 kit. Don´t know yet if it will be a C or D. I know, there is an issue with the intake, which is addressed by some AM companies. How good is the kit actually? Is it a) get a new intake, the rest is fine b) it has some issues (please tell me which) but builds into an accurate replica when corrected. c) get it only if you really need a 1/48 F-100 with recessed panel lines, otherwise go Monogram. There is a corrected tail fin for the C model and corrected 335gal drop tank noses. What ar
  3. What`s up guys? :) Here is what i got yesterday - this wonderful HobbyBoss kit in 1/48. The YF-23 is a very cool plane, but i plan to make it even cooler - for instance how it should look like as a serial F-23A Black Widow II. Of cource, i don`t plan to start it any time sooner. Yet check out this monter kit - so nice boundaries and continuities and curves and shapes... beauty beauty!

  8. Hi all! I would like to share my latest completed project, the 1/48 Great Wall Hobby F-15C from the MSIP II ANG boxing. I decided to build it in the fantastic splinter camo markings of the 65th AGRS circa 2013. The camo was done without a mask, using Tamiya tape and just kinda eyeballing it. I started by painting the gray, then masking and painting either the white or blue areas one at a time. Some areas were easier to paint the white over the blue, and others the blue over the white. I used some aftermarket on this one, including a Quickboost seat, Meng CATM Aim-9M

  11. I have two Monogram 1/48 AV-8B’s in the stash and as I am preparing to work on one of them I was wondering if it’s possible to make the other into a GR. 5 as they look very similar. Now I know the nose radome is different (which I have no clue how to rectify), there’s one more set of pylons compared to the AV-8B, and the instrument panel is different (was thinking the Airwaves PE could help with that) thatall need to be changed. Is there anything else that I missed? Is it even possible? I don’t have the budget to drop for another Hasegawa Harrier so I thought I

  13. Looking for an accurate aftermarket copy of the Stencil SEU-3/A ejection seat that was used by the USMC in the AV-8A's for my Monogram kit. I am fully aware there are several Stencel S-III-S (SJU-4) made in 1/48 and some manufacturers even advertise these as for the -A models however that is incorrect. Anyone have any ideas or should I just tinker with improving the kit seat?
  14. Hi all! I present to you my latest project, the 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-35S Flanker-E, "Red 08" in the unique Eggplant Dark Gray scheme of the Russian Air Force, circa 2014. This is really a great kit that has excellent fit almost everywhere, with the wing joins being the notable exception. The kit is not without other issues, however. The exhaust nozzles are molded in the straight position which would only be correct for a powered up machine, not drooped at rest. The stinger tail has flare boxes on the top, which is only correct for the prototypes and early production ai
  15. I have accumulated a few pre war aircraft but had not built any due to the biplane configuration and rigging. I had tried to build the Classic Airframes F4B-4 a few years ago and it didn't go well because I had not considered the difficulty of doing the rigging in advance. I just followed the instructions (what are those). Fast forward a few years and I have figured out that you have to plan the rigging in advance. I have purchased many of Yellow Wing decals to get a lot of different markings options and a lot of yellow paint. I tried not to duplicate any color scheme and that is where t
  16. Hi everyone! Back again after taking another break from building for awhile... So here is my latest completed project, the 1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18C Hornet in VFA-86 Sidewinders CAG markings circa 2006. I was drawn to the large orange diamond on the spine, much like the old A-7s of the same squadron in the late 70s, so I knew I had to build my first Legacy Hornet in those markings. Soon I will build a Corsair in the same "diamond spine" style markings. The decals I used are from Afterburner Decals "Snakes on a Plane" sheet. These performed flawlessly like usual. The ki
  17. It's been a while since I posted anything. I have finished quite a few so I will start putting them up here. Here is the first. Monogram's B-25J Gunship version. Out of the box except for the decals which date back to the 1985 IPMS/USA national convention. The first decal (the red and white strip behind the green) started fracturing when I put it on the model so I sprayed the rest with a thin layer of lacquer to seal them up before dipping in water. It was also my first try at using acrylic paints instead of my trusty Model Master paints. Hope you like it.

  19. Hey all, I have the 'Nam Tour of Duty Skyraider and I want to model the famous Navy Toilet Bomber Skyraider, What mods, if any, do I have to make to make it the Navy version? I've looked online, and the aircraft look visually the same.. Any help would be appreciated Cheers, Ian

  21. Hi all! I am back after a bit of a break with my latest completed model, the 1/48 Special Hobby AJ 37 Viggen from 7 sqd of the Swedish Air Force. The kit is actually very nice to build, and has some really nice detail. There are a few errors in the kit, all of which are well known here and other sites. I myself was not too concerned with these issues, as they did not bother me, and by doing an in-flight build was able to avoid two of the bigger issues (canard flaps droop on the ground and way too thin wheels and tires). That also did not keep me from making some mist
  22. Dear all when the MiG-21F-13 from Trumpeter was released, there was a thread here about it´s accuracy issues, IIRC. Using the search reveals nothing for me. Maybe I´m using the wrong key words. Does anybody has it still linked, or created it and can post the link? Many thanks, Thomas
  23. Hi all! Here is my recently finished model - the infamous F-23A Black Widow II, as she could have look like if entering into serial production. 🙂 The weathering also features quite a significant amount of "what if", but for the conversion i used all the unclassified pics and diagrams on the www.yf-23.net website. I tried to make this kit as correct as possible while sticking to the mentioned dimensions, angles, etc. - all the changes from the prototype version YF-23. As a base kit - it is the HobbyBoss's 1/48 kit and here is the WIP topic. (PS: the pics on the first pages are invisible... don'
  24. The beast has moveable landing gear and rudders 🙂 So this is the photoshoot only in a "parked" mod. Most of the pics are also on a direct sunlight, which helps make the Have Glass shines and reflections more pronounced. And of course - a big Thank you guys, for all the kindness, ideas and guidelines throughout this build! Here is the WIP topic and the "In-flight" Rollout. And now let's get started with some on-the-ground sillhouettes...
