  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. I managed about the same as last year, with 3 being rescued from the Shelf of Doom (all my 1/144 completions) which were my last 3 finished for the year, and one a strip and repaint of an older build. 5 were RAAF subjects for my club's delayed RAAF 100 display and a number of others for GBs around the Interwebs. Here they are in no particular order. 1/72 Airfix Ilyushin IL-28 Beagle, Finnish AF 1/72 Airfix North American RA-5C Vigilante, RVAH-12 USN 1/72 Hasegawa McDonnell Douglas F/A-18A Hornet, 77SQN RAAF 1/72 Hasegawa Lockhee
  4. Hello All, First build finished in many, many years. This is the Itaerli 1/72 RB-66 kit, built in markings for the 10th TRW at RAF Alconbury in 1964. I built this to hang on the ceiling of my boys' bedroom, since both were born while stationed at RAF Alconbury. Kids went nuts for it, so that made me happy. The Kit This is the only readily available kit for the any version of the B-66. It is actually quite impressive, as the kit comes with parts to make every major variant of the jet: B-66, RB-66, and EB-66. Technically, the EB-66 version sho
  5. That's an awesome HSAWC F-16 on the gallery. On other news, massive, massive 1/72 Hasegawa Phantom stash dump on eBay, just saying. No, it's not me, actually looking at a bunch.

  7. 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
  8. Can anyone address me to a book or publication with correct DeuxMille drawings? Thank you.

  10. Hi all, this is my scratch built 1/72 IAF LCA Tejas Navy prototype fighter.
  11. Greetings, I recently made this lovely 72nd scale Eduard Mig-21. It is a great kit, practically no filler needed, went together like a dream. I purchased a lot of aftermarket for it as well - resin exhaust (Armycast) and engine (Eduard), resin pylons and UB-16 rocket pods, exterior and interior PE (all of these Eduard), metal pitot tube (Master), and Slovak Air Force specific decals (Airdesign). This particular jet was manufactured in Moscow and first served in the Czechoslovak Air Force, and later in the Slovak Air Force until 2001 (maybe 2002?), when it was retired and placed
  12. 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
  13. I'm having a blast going back and forth with my current builds, of which there are currently 12 (3 of them being 1/48 builds, including one Viper). So I really wanted to build an F-16N for a while now. Adversary Vipers are just so cool. I get excited whenever I see one being built, but that doesn't cut it anymore. I have one kit in my stash ad my moms but the entire closet is so blocked by other stuff I simply can't reach it. I also really wanted to build something else than Hasegawa. It's been a long while since I build an 1/72 Viper not by Hasegawa. Perhaps even a decade! An

  15. Hey guys, Having no knowledge whatsoever about the C-130, I'm trusting you guys to help me on this one. 😊 I'm thinking about the possibility to convert the Zvezda 1/72 C-130J-30 into a standard C-130J, wanting to do the current Blue Angels "Fat Albert". I can see the fuselage has to been shortened, but how much and where? Any other things that needs to be changed/addressed? Are there any decals available for the current Blue Angels C-130J? Thanks in advance! Regards, Nick
  16. Hello gents, this is my proposal for the group build, the Academy 1/72 F-16CG kit converted to a F-16D Block 30 Barak using the CMK set. I know that the Academy kit have some issue, but hope to rectify them with the help of CMK resins and /or other alternative solutions. I've many Revell and a Tamiya kit in the stash, so I maybe can cast some bits frome these kits to improve the incrimined areas of the Academy's. Now some mandatory shots of the kit and the various AM sets. Some decals sheets to use, still not sure the S
  17. Looking for reasonably priced Heller 1/72nd E-3F/B (release with CFM engines).
  18. 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
  19. Posting another one I did very early in 2021 as one of my Covid lockdown builds. This is the 2006 Revell issue of the Monogram 1/72 X-15A-2, done up as the aircraft appeared for its last flight when Pete Knight set a speed record with it. The aircraft was covered with an ablative heat shield coating. It was pink in color, tended to come off in slivers and had an annoying habit of getting saturated with LOX, which could have "explosive" results. So the coating was covered in a flat white binder layer. The plane itself was a rebuild of X-15 ship #2, which was rebuilt following a bad crash on Mud
  20. So concurrent with my GWH 1/72 F-15C MISIP II project I'm also taking a look at the Hasegawa F-15C (shout out to @hemspilot for bringing it up). Although accurate this kit also features "simplified" air intakes with no inner details: I modified the kit fuselage halves and my 3D printed intakes for the 1/72 GWH F-15 and found that the resulting parts fit together not all that bad: That's the good news! The bad news is that the actual kit intakes all too predictively won't fit in any satisfactory way with the custom 3D printed part

  22. 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
  23. 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).
  24. 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.
