  1. Hello, I had a hard time deciding which livery I wanted for my Eduard 72nd scale Mig-21 MF. Then I decided for a russian aircraft with one of those complicated camos with several coulors. I found an interesting aircraft in white 17. It is a 5 + 1 colour camoed aircraft (+1 being the emerald green patches which might be repair works or touch ups…) This actually is a Mig-21 SM (SM being basically being the domestic version and MF beig the export version). White 17 belongs to the 1st Squadron ou the Fighter-Bomber 18th Regiment – 303rd Composite Air Division base
  2. Hi there. I'd like to share with You my current little long term project. It begun with me wanting to build a few models with a common theme - Variable Sweep Wings, all 1/72. It begun with a huge box that cluttered my stash with a 1/72 Revell Tornado diorama I got second hand some time ago. Next one was a Su-24, and I begun looking at a MiG-23... With currently running Tomcat Group Build I figured a Tomcat would be a nice addition. Adding to that mix a Su-20 and Su-22 was really only natural. No sweat here, as I did not set myself a finish date, and I plan on doing a fe
  3. Hello, These are my little Mig-29 9-12s in 1/72nd scale. Story started a few years ago when I built my first Mig-29 in 1/72nd scale. At the time best choice was between the Italeri and Airfix models. I thought the Italeri kit was a better starting point and proceeded with my project. I actually was not very satisfied with that first try for 2 main reasons : I missed to correct the angled position of the main landing gears (Italeri gives them vertical…) I left the upper auxilliary intake doors open – they normally are closed when aircraft are parked and id
  4. Greetings Everyone, Trust you are doing well. . . My recent work of HobbyBoss 1/72 Dassault Rafale. The kit is very simple with few parts, but they have adequate detail for this scale. Weapons provided are also adequate except the kit could have included LGBs but its ok for a kit this old and with this price. The model is painted with locally available acrylic paints. As it was a commission build I got to build 2 of these . . . . 😉 Do enjoy the build . . Best Adi youtu.be/RR0Z3wv0bas · on
  5. First off, thanks to some of you for the light pushing to post a build thread. I wasn't feeling ready for it, I'm more of a "wait for the thing to be done, and then write about it" kind of guy but here we go! A brief background - I've always been somewhat removed from the space program. Never really paid much attention to it (one of those 'it's so routine that it's not exciting' things), saw some launches in elementary school in the early 90s, I remember being in 4th or 5th grade when John Glenn went into space. Moved to Florida (from New Jersey) in 2001, and continued to not pay a
  6. This is my second Mig19/J6. Its from Plastyk. There's a reason why its under USD 10. Cheap and rather nasty. Requires much more filling and sanding as compared to my earlier Smer J6. Still, I'm rather satisfied with the outcome. Overall shade was Mr Hobby MC 218 Aluminium. I used a 4B pencil for that different tone of silver. Works better after putting on a matt finish, o find. Markings were from leftover Smer J6 decals. The Plastyk ones looked a tad thick and "sticker-esque" (see last photo).
  7. Gents, if anyone has unused sprues with those chin pods that they do not need I am willing to take them over. I have a couple of Academy F-4Js that would like to make land based. Thanks all.

  9. Adding the iconic soviet fighter to my to-do series, which is the best 1/72 kit series. Thanks.
  10. So this is the Smer 1/72 Shanyang J6. Basic kit, with decent panel details albeit raised. Also plenty of flash and not much in cockpit details. Anyway, this was a quick build done in 3 days ( 2 if I had not done some "rhinoplasty" to fix the sunken nose on the left and right sides of the nose cone due to excessive glue). Overall a fun built. In fact, so fun that i decided to order another one from Plastyk - this time a Mig-19.
  11. After 9 months, it's finally done. ---------------------WARNING------------------ Huge amount of pictures below ----------------------------------------------------- I edited some newly took photos of the completely finished diorama with tractors and figures.

  12. Hi all, here is my 1/72 Revell BONE build in progress. I have done some scratch building on Main Wheel Bay and the Bomb Bays. Started this project a month ago and I hope I can finish it some time later... I did away all the raised panel lines and rebuilt them with 0.15 Tamiya panel engraver. Then added rivets to the panel line. Cut out the original bomb bay for scratch built bomb bay Used reference pix and blueprints found on the web as well as Willy Peeters' B-1B book to scratch build bomb bay and main wheel bay.
  13. Thanks to Covid I got back into doing the odd Aircraft in the last year. I have been unaware of any models over the last ten years or so. My main interest is finescale UK model railways, in October 19 we moved into our new home, the intention was a new hobby room for me, this is very much approaching on the horizon, so Ian will soon have by the year end I will have a 5m x 7.5 m model hobby room self contained, only draw back I have to build it and extension! So the odd Aircraft can occupy me when I have down time during the build. I have been assembling a f
  14. Hi there, This is my recent project, a nice Airfix kit. Not my usual scale, but this bird in 1/48 just won’t fit my space here. Except Eduard Masks, a must for all these clear parts, everything else OOB. Fitting is nice in general, except for the clear parts that build into the tail gun structure being too narrow for the fuselage, which causes a step. Also, after glueing the fuselage halves, I ended up with a gap right in front of the windshield. Despite this, the clear part for the “canopy” structure fitted well with the gap. So, instead of forcing the halves to join, I just
  15. Just a long shot, but I am looking for an F-16A ADF tail, at the moment the ADF kits I have run across seem to be a bit steep. Thanks for looking RJ
  16. Has anyone seen the actual resin parts for the Blackbird Models BMA72009 HC-130H set? Is it for the USAF HC-130H version or the USCG version? Hannants does not show a photo, but has a few in stock. The Blackbird Models website is also blank. I'd like to order a set, but want to know what i am getting before I commit. K/r, Dutch
  17. My 11th and last build of 2020 is a Vietnam War-era A-4F Skyhawk. I added the APS-107 RHAW sensor under the nose and armed the Skyhawk for the SAM Suppression mission which the US Navy calls 'Iron Hand'. Decals are from Superscale. Painted in acrylics and given slightly heavier weathering with oils to depict a war-time bird. With fellow CVW-21 stablemate from VF-211 Checkmates. NP-103 wears markings from 1968 however. A full build log and more photos can be found on my s
  18. Hello Everyone, My first try at making ocean waves. I use my old Hobbyboss 1/72 Sh-60 Jayhawk kit and I modify this by adding rudimentary pilots, open door and a winch wire. The Rotating blades are made by using Clear Acrylic sheet which was masked and painted with RED White and Yellow Stripes. Black was Painted on the bottom in a fading stroke. The waves are made using silicone rubber and Baking Soda. I put two layers and I think it did a good enough job. The base is basic plywood and topped with foam and acrylic putty. Paints used a
  19. The are several incarnations of both kits from multiple manufacturers, Italeri, Zvezda (more than one), Dragon, Hobby Boss (I believe). Which one is the closest to an operational machine in 1/72 scale? Thanks.
  20. Whith the first two F-15EX on the Boeing final assembly line, it's time for a decent kit. which one is best to update among Academy, GWH and Hasegawa?
  21. This started as as a P-3C and was modified to a P-3B config of the Argentinian Navy using reference pictures. I filled the sonobuoy tubs, added Eziline HF wire antennas, and updated the antennas to reflect the Argentine fit. The model was also rescribed. Paints are mainly Gunze acrylics and SMS lacquers. Decals are the From DekLs sheet.
  22. Good evening, I'm going to be building a Luftwaffe Alpha Jet, and I would like to hang a some LAU-51 Rocket pods underneath. Does anybody have any in the spares box that they would be willing to sell or trade with me for? Thank you very much! Hoops
  23. Hello Everyone, The build is a MIG29SMT built into an Indian Air Force MIG29UPG taking off on a Wet Runway with Glowing Afterburners. The kit used is a Trumpeter MIG29SMT in 1/72 size. Most of the work done was on making the Flame look realistic enough. The flame is Clear Resin and is lit by using 2 White LEDs housed in the exhaust cans. The model is painted using the bare basic techniques of preshading and light coats of grey color to make this an IAF grey machine. Paints used were acrylics. This was a first trial run to make the Afterbu
  24. Anyone familiar with me, especially here on ARC, knows that I’ve been tinkering around with building a 1/72 Saturn model for the better part of five years. (Yes, five.) There have been many starts and just as many stops, all with long stretches of time in between. During that time I’ve learned a lot of new techniques and have been able to produce some 3D models of the Saturn that I’m quite satisfied with. The problem is I didn’t have anything physical to show for all the work, and producing it would be extraordinarily expensive, especially at the resolution that would produce the detail I’m l
