    SpPz 2 Luchs

    Luchs is done for, it's a lovely kit great detail for it's size.
  2. Hi, guys I'm about to start Tamiya's F-4E Early. My budget won't allow me to buy afternarket correct engine nozzles for it, so I'm looking for the Revell kit ones. I thought I had a pair of them in my spares' box, but could not find it. If someone has those parts and is willing to negotiate them, we can work something out, I have lots of parts and spare decals, in 1/48 and 1/32 . Cheers and TIA, Sergio :)
  3. Hi everyone! I just complete my 23rd model, the 1/48 Revell Panavia Tornado IDS in Luftwaffe JaboG 31 markings from Afghanistan deployment at Mazer-e-Sharif in 2009. Let me just start by saying this is not an easy kit to build, particularly the wings and intakes. This ranks up there with the Hasegawa Tomcat as the most challenging builds I have encountered to far. In addition to the tricky wings and intakes, the instructions are really not good at all. Even worse, however, is the nonsensical parts numbering and part placement among the sprues. The parts are just spread all over, with a sprue containing parts in the 20s maybe and other in the 40s 50s 60s 70s up to the 100s. The sprues are all lettered, but the instructions never call out a letter, only the number. So much time is wasted hunting down parts by the number and appearance only. And since the numbers have no organization on the sprues, you literally hunt by appearance then check to see if it is the right number. Maddening! But with all of that said, it really does build into a nice model. The detail is quite good, despite the fact they added an extra panel line at the nose before the nosecone or something. It's just not quite right there. I am very happy with how this turned out despite some flaws and alignment issues that have only become apparent after looking at the pics. I used the Wingman Models Luftwaffe Tornados Part 1 sheet for this, and I must say they are quite awesome. No issues at all and they performed flawless. There was a little bit of an issue with the stencil diagram with incorrect numbering, but nothing that was not able to be figured out with some thought and deduction. I recommend this to anyone looking to do a German Tornado! Kit: 1/48 Revell of Germany Tornado IDS Decals: Wingman Models WMD48006 Luftwaffe Tornados Part 1 Aftermarket: Pavla Ejection Seats, Hasegawa Weapons Sets C (AGM-88s), Master Model Pitot Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Tamiya Liquid White Primer (for marble coat), Gunze Aqueous FS 35237 Grayish Blue, FS 36375 Light Ghost Gray, FS 36320 Dark Ghost Gray, and FS 36173 Neutral Gray, Tamiya XF-24 Dark Gray, Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Green, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, Pale Burnt Metal, and Burnt Iron. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash. I am aware that some of the pics are kinda blurry. But I hope you enjoy!
  4. Hello, As the title states,I'm looking for the instrument panel and control stick from the Monogram/Revell 1/48 A-10 Warthog. If you've used a resin cockpit for yours and still have the parts and would be willing to let them go, I'd be more than happy to pay the shipping. Thank you! Justin
  5. Plastic model kit Revell Airbus A 380 Emirates. http://www.ebay.com/itm/252993102449?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649
  6. If anybody bought the revell re-issue with the VX-23 scheme are not going to use the decals, I could really use decal number 58 (x2), they are the blue "223" that goes on the flaps Thanks, Brent
  7. Hello, I am looking to buy this kit Super Stallion CH-53E Sikorsky CH-53E "Super Stallion" Revell - Nr. 04435 - 1:72 Either Boxing, Thank you, C 195 Man. Italeri - Nr. 081 - 1:72
  8. Hi guys, anymone here who has these 4 parts left over? It is the rocket launcher unit together with the pylons. Rocket launchers are not important to me as I only need the pylons for the flying bulls Cobra. Some busy guy had to cut off almost all weapon parts from the sprues and so also the pylons were gone. Idiot! When you look closer to the flying bulls Cobra you will see that the pylons are fixed to the small wings! Here are the part no.: 26 and 63 (2x each) - numbers are from the Revell reboxing, no. 04646 Thanks for looking!
  9. Hi all! Here is my 1/48 Revell F-15E Strike Eagle in 90th FS, Elmendorf AFB, Alaska markings. This build took me about 2.5 weeks, and I entered it into my very first judged contest. Won 2nd place in the "1/48 Multi-engine Jets" category. Very happy with that! I had heard the Revell F-15E kit was very nice, and boy was that right! This was easily the nicest and best fitting kit I have built so far (this is my 15th). I am very impressed, too bad there were no bombs included... I had to raid my Hasegawa Weapons Set D for bombs. I used a combination of Repli-Scale, TwoBobs, and kit stencils for this build. Here is what I used on this build: Kit: 1/48 Revell F-15E Strike Eagle Decals: Repli-Scale (main markings), TwoBobs "Anaconda Squeeze" and OOB (stencils) Aftermarket: Legend Productions ejection seats, Hasegawa Weapons Set D Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Tamiya White Liquid Primer (for pre-shade stippling), Gunze Aqueous H305 FS36118 Gunship Gray (overall basecoat), Gunze Aqueous H317 FS36231 Dark Gull Gray (cockpit), Gunze Aqueous H327 FS11136 Insignia Red (vert tail stripes), Tamiya smoke (post shading), and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, Pale Burnt Metal, Hot Metal Blue, and Jet Exhaust. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. MIG Deep Gray for panel washes. On to the pics! I hope you enjoy! Thanks for looking!
  10. Hey everyone I have an original Revell (not the nicer/better Reboxed Monogram) F-14 Tomcat and its missing a Radome I actually tried to fit some other Radomes on it from other manufacturers, no luck.. The academy might work and since Steel Beach makes a resin replacement for the Academy Tomcat nose, I thought someone may have a spare original lying around they could help me with PM if you can help, will pay (but not much, this kit sucks) :) Thank you for looking
  11. 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 attention until Columbia in '03. When the retirement was announced for the program, I figured it'd be a good idea to go see a launch, but being 16-17 when Discovery lead the return-to-flight, and only so many years left to catch a launch, having no car, and parents that were not ready and willing to travel across the state, it looked like a bleak outlook. Not long before the end of the program I had an older friend whose family was decided to go see the final night launch and invited me, and I think that's when it really started. I don't remember much, except that it was incredibly late, cold, and the launch scrubbed, and we couldn't stay for the next attempt because, what else, work and school. I attempted STS-134. I took a bus to Orlando, spent the week with an old friend who offered to drive to Titusville to see the launch with me. After being scrubbed and delayed, I had to once again go home disappointed. Then STS-135. I took off several days from work, took a greyhound bus to my Orlando friend once again. We trekked out to Titusville, among the hundreds of people on a muggy summer morning. It was incredibly overcast, and not looking good. The countdown comes, hold at 31 seconds, and our hearts sink expecting them to scrub again, my last chance blown. A few brief moments pass, and the crowd gets excited. 30 seconds! That day, far away in Titusville, I saw a tiny blip of light miles away liftoff, last for about 10 seconds, and then disappear into the low clouds . We waited for the sonic boom which came maybe 5 minutes later. And I was hooked. Fast forward two years, and I was fortunate to join some fairly new space-minded friends from college at the opening day ceremony for the Atlantis exhibit at KSC. It felt special, I was there for her final launch, my only launch (until MUOS-2 and MAVEN), and there to celebrate her in her new home. Atlantis was something special and I loved this orbiter. I've dabbed in models a lot when I was younger, but I wanted something that would be special to commemorate the grand interest and excitement in the space program Atlantis instilled in me. Then I picked up this 1/72 Revell kit in late 2011. I decided on having her displayed as she is at KSC, doors open and in flight. I saw Phil Smith's Discovery, with the medical tape and styrene tile strip and knew I wanted to emulate those techniques, but I didn't have much of a plan or patience. I don't have many pictures from this time period either. With a Red Bull payload for those long college nights. The medical tape looked pretty good, although the look of two pieces overlapping wasn't so great. Then she went into storage for a long time. I was burned out by the process of creating tile strips which I did totally wrong. I bought 2mm .010 strips of evergreen, glued them on, and THEN scribed them, as they were on the belly of the orbiter. They were crooked, they looked off, it wasn't great. I tried to do the scribing sheets and then cutting them, but the process of measuring and marking the lines on the styrene sheets was daunting. So into storage she went. Fast forward to August of this year. I had an itch to begin working on the model again, so I pulled it out of storage. It was a mess and I was unhappy with the state of it, especially after lurking on this forum and others and seeing all the improvements that various companies have made for the Revell/Monogram orbiters, 3D printed parts, decals, details, I knew I could do better in 2016 than I attempted in 2011. But first, she had to be completely stripped of the old styrene and medical tape. I tried various methods to remove the old tape and styrene, but in the end, it required scraping off. The medical tape was yellowed at this point, and the cockpit glass was cracked and hazed. This is mid-August 2016. The black was a krylon primer (following Phil Smith there), the white is the plastic underneath after scraping and sanding smooth. I decided against re-priming. The only thing that stayed was the nose cap of hardened and shaped putty. Firstly, I had to tackle the process of creating tiles. I had some A4 size sheets of .010 styrene, so I printed out a grid of squares that were 3mm on the sheets in a standard printer (note - don't use the thick glossy setting, it will shrink and warp the styrene!). I figured 3mm was smaller than the huge tiles engraved on the model, but bigger than what 'scale' should be but I could work with them easier than 2mm or smaller, and the larger size meant I should be able to finish sooner. It was a good compromise IMO. (The picture is actually of the cardstock thermal blankets in 1/4 inch squares, but I did the same for the styrene). After some careful planning, I went ahead and began laying the strips in the familiar alternating brick pattern. I decided to go for close to accurate, representational, rather than ultra-realistic, but still accurate to satisfy my want to get it right. I decided to try the textured cardstock that I read about here - I easily found it at the local craft shop and stocked up so I could make plenty mistakes. The gaps between the squares of cardstock will be carefully filled with Tamiya putty, another technique I read about here! This is fairly far along, the end of September-ish. This is today. I've had to go back and redo about 15% of the starboard side forward of the RCC wing edges. It's not completely finished. The bottom and top of the body flap. And some of the nose. I know it looks fairly rough, but I plan on going over the unevenness with some fine sandpaper, re-scribe any tiles missing, and see how it looks then. There's a lot to do, and a lot needs to be covered, filled, smoothed, etc Another note - For the nose and cockpit tile, I went ahead with 2mm strips instead of the belly's 3mm. Because the doors are going to be open, I used the tops of the payload bay doors and some of the side of the fuselage as practice for cardstock laying techniques, figuring out what worked, so it won't look all that great but should be hidden when the doors are permanently mounted open. Inside the payload bay, it's been completely been reconfigured. The Revell model is separated into 10 sections instead of 13. Using the cardstock and strips plus sheets of styrene, it has been overhauled and detailed with the junction boxes and other pieces associated with a busy, if empty, payload bay. I added strips for sidewall edges and pieces of hinges and other bits. The fore and aft bulkheads are covered with strips of plain tissue. The rear portion has that channel cut into it. I had to crack the super glue holding the payload bay in the fuselage of the orbiter to pull out the bay and perform surgery for this part. And that's it! For now at least. I have the AMP cockpit windows on order, and I'm thinking of resin engines - I really like the fisher set but haven't committed. The port-side fuselage needs to get 'thermal blankets', the cockpit needs to be tiled (waiting on the AMP windows), the OMS pods, vertical stab, and the aft end all need to be detailed. All the thermal blanket gaps will need to be filled. Some details need to be added to the payload bay walls, as well as the ISS docking module (undergoing fabrication using styrene and part of the kit parts from the spacelab it came with). And finally, raised and rough areas will be cut back, rescribed, primed, and painted when the time comes. Thinking about it, a set of decals would probably have been easier. But I think the texture of the orbiter should be noticeable at this scale, and seeing how others have approached the strips of styrene and medical tape/cardstock blanket method, I think it's worth it for sure. And if there's anything I've learned while working on this, is that if there is something that looks off to me, to just go ahead and redo it even if it means losing a week of progress and not be annoyed at it! There you have it - thanks for taking a look and reading my damn life story! I'll update this thread when there's anything to update. Next will be the completed repairs to the bottom, completing the tops of the wings, and thermal blankets on the port side.
