  1. 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. Unfortunately I didn't have RLM 66 for the cockpit interior so I mixed it using reference pictures, for the mix I used Pale grey and black (1:3 ratio approx.). I painted the cockpit details using a 10/0 brush with 50-50 water diluted paint, I used the photo-edged parts and actual pictures as reference. Ι don't like the "flat photo-edged parts, for some details I cut the decals and I applied them in the correct position. For the weathering I used for the first time AK's waterpencils, I really liked the final result. Also I used Winsor & Newton Wintor and Abteilung oil paints. Currently I have glued the 2 fuselage parts and the wing together. The fitting is not the best but I can fix it with some putty (picture will be uploaded later). I would like to ask if someone has pictures of a similar finished model or actual pictures. Any commend is very useful because I am relatively new in the hobby (This is only fourth kit, I have finished 2 spitfires and I have a F 16 on hold).
  2. For those interested in modeling their Tamiya Tomcat with a "down & dirty" wing, here ya go: http://www.redstarscalemodels.com/product-p/k48088.htm
  3. I was eagerly awaiting this chopper, but it was due out over a year ago and I haven't heard a peep about in many, many months. Does anyone know what the status is or is this one dead on the vine? Rick
  4. As the title suggests, I would appreciate hearing from those that have seen the actual plastic, as to what the differences are between the two boxings of ICM MiG-25 recon kits? TIA, Rick
  5. I just received the new injection molded Italeri 1 48th H-21C Shawnee. The kit is superlative, the detail is very nice and even includes cabin and radial engine detail. The kit decals feature markings for U.S. Army, Air Force & Marines versions, as well as a French version. There is even a p.e. fret that offers seat belts and screens for the engine compartment. Overall a very nice kit, which renders the F.M. and Special Hobby releases of this same helo redundant imo. Pictures to follow after the holiday.
  6. A much needed addition to all the recent Soviet/Russian stuff: http://www.cybermodeler.com/news/kitty.shtml I will be in for four or five! Rick
  7. It seems that HpH once released a 48th scale B-36, which is just crazy in and of itself! However, they now plan to re-release said monster, as an "upgraded kit" and it will probably retail for around $400! My dream would be to build one of these, along with an XF-85 Goblin parasite fighter. The only problem is that completed combo would take up my entire living room! Talk about a "man-cave." http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235010574-148-convair-b-36-peacemaker-fiberglas-kit-by-hph-future/ Rick
