  1. Hi guys Here I will post some photos from the Spitfires, I am currently building. I would like to ask for some advice, since these are my first builds (alongside with a F 16). Unfortunately, I don't have photos from the early stages. I used the Spitfires mostly to gain some experience using airbrush. For airbrushing I used a H&S Ultra airbrush, for the PRU schemed airplane I used AK's 3rd gen acrylics, while for the day fighter I used Humbrol Enamels. Both models were primed with Mr Surfacer 1200 and preshaded with black color, for the metallic base I used AK's True Metal Silver. I manage to get a better surface quality using AK acrylics. A lesson that I've learned while painting is that "never chip before masking". I think that both of them look over weathered. For weathering I used some Winsor & Newton and Abteilung Oil paints (Ivory Black for smoke, Raw umber for fuel leaks, Raw umber + dark rust mix for oil leaks, Raw umber + zinc white mix for the dust effect) and AK's paneliner for Grey and Blue camo. For the decals I used Tamiya's Mark Fit Strong and Softener. For the PRU Spitfire I also used the same oil paints but with a much cleaner finish. Currently the F 16 is on hold because I am waiting the shipment of a resin exhaust nozzle, but know I feel more confident to continue the F 16.
  2. 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 looking for. I do think that it will be an option in the future, especially since SLA Printers are becoming a little more affordable. I guess it would be prudent to start squirreling away some cash for that eventuality … but right now, Johnny wants a rocket. For the past few months, I’ve been building a couple of 1/72 Saturn Vs from Dragon kits. I haven’t been quibbling too much on the horrid inaccuracies, I’ve just been building. Mainly to try to recapture the enjoyment I get from constructing these things, but also to actually have a couple of really cool display pieces for the study. Mind you, I have been adding a few details here and there, but I’ve been mostly just building it OOB and I do have to admit that it’s been a very enjoyable experience. One will be the Skylab 1 launch vehicle and the other, I’m thinking, will represent the Apollo 16 launch vehicle. It's like Michoud on my desk. So far building the two Saturn Vs simultaneously has been a pretty easy affair. You make two sets of parts, then apply two sets of parts. I’m closing in on having both S-ICs ready for final assembly. I’m hoping the S-II will go together in a similar, relaxed fashion … I don’t think it will, but let’s hope. So here’s the crazy bit. I’ve got three Dragon Saturn kits that I’m using for these builds. Since I’m almost completely redoing the way the S-IIs are constructed, I’ll be using a couple of the third kit’s skirt sections to rebuild the forward skirt areas. This is going to leave me with a lot of 5.5” dia. tank sections and other parts. So rather than let those go to waste, I was thinking that I’d build something that was somewhat ludicrous, but really, really cool – a Nova C-8 as proposed for the Apollo Direct Ascent plan. Most tube diameters coincide with schedule 40 PVC/ABS pipe sizes available at the Home Depot, so This may never actually happen, but it would be epic. So yeah, three rockets – I’m going to give it a go. I’ll post soon to catchup to where the build is currently, but in the interim … imagine the eventual end-product looking something like this. Ceiling tiles.
  3. Hello, I am new in scale modeling. I used this kit (Dual Spitfire Combo) to gain some experience in airbrushing and basic techniques (I had an accident with one of the roundels but actually looks good). For painting the PRU Spitfire I used Tamiya and AK 3rd gen acrylics (camo). For weathering I used Winsor & Newton and Abteilung oil paints (raw amber for fuel leaks, ivory black for smoke, dark rust for oil leaks and zinc white + raw umber for dust effect), also I used AK's paneliner for grey and blue camo. For the metallic base for chipping I used AK's true metal silver. I pre shaded the model with black color. I would like to ask for some advice since I am new to the hobby. Now I can restart working on the Eduard's 1/48 Fw 190 D9,I also have on hold a 1/48 Kinetic F 16 Block 52+. Bonus Pics:

You can see that I tried some chipping (Never chip befor masking.....), for its base I used AK's true metal silver. I pre shaded the model with black color, but I post shade the darker colours with lighter tones. I would like to ask for some advice since I am new to the hobby. Now I can restart working on a 1/48 Eduard Fw 109 D9 (I will make a thread later I have a lot of questions about it as I have almost no idea for wwii airplanes) and I have also on hold a 1/48 Kinetic F 16 Block 52+, I am waiting for a resin exhaust nozzle.

  6. Dear ARC Colleagues A few photos of my Academy F-8E from VF-162 based on USS Oriskany in 1967. Lets see if my photos work here?? Regards Andrew
  7. 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
  8. Good Morning, Attached are the first few photos of my next work in progress, this is a bit of kit bash between these two kits and both are being built parallel. 20200105_134423 by J Hooper, on Flickr The fist subject will be a new F-15SA (Saudi Advanced), still being flown by Boeing for flight test and integration purposes. Inspiration for this build can be seen in the link below: https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/21755/f-15sa-bristles-with-a-dozen-aim-120s-missiles-during-star-wars-canyon-run The second subject will be a Israeli Defense Force F-15D, it will be one of the aircraft seen recently at Waddington, but with a different load out: Flickr Image (not mine!) The Great Wall Hobby kit is a Strike Eagle out of the box, where as the Hasegawa kit is really an F-15D with some extra parts thrown in. The Hasegawa kit is still, good, but it shows it's lineage, and there are still some steps that need to be taken to make it an accurate Strike Eagle. For that reason I will take advantage of the kit's individual qualities, to make the best out of both.
  9. There's a correction article somewhere for the 1/72 Monogeam F-16XL kit, but I cannot locate it. Also does anyone know of a reliable scale 3 views profile. Thanks.
  10. Hello, This is Eduard's Mig-21MF Profipack edition kit, built with some additional aftermarket goods (resin exhaust, external PE set), in Romanian AF markings. Very beginner friendly kit, goes together like a dream. Brush painted with various colors from AKAN, Ammo Mig and MRP aqua based paints. Apologies for my "potato camera" picture quality. Thanks for looking.
  11. Dear Fellow Modellers There maybe a thread you can direct me too, but what is the consensus on who makes the most attractive F-14 Tomcat in 1/72. I think I last made one from Airfix in the early 1970s (oops) Thanks Andrew
  12. Hi all, I have the Hasegawa YF-16/ CCV kit but other than the smaller forward fuselage that may or may not be correct, everything else is very basic. What would be a good kit to complete an early bird? Kursad over at Caracal Decals is about to release an awesome 1/72 decal sheet for the early Vipers and I would like to put it to good use.
  13. One last request for now ... Looking for a copy of the Testors 1/72 XR-7 Thunder Dart at a reasonable price ? Thank You for looking !
  14. Hello Is there anybody to share one of the scheme in the Camouflaged B-29 Iliad #7203 decal sheet? I have an old Airfix kit to do for a friend of mine who gave me the box. Patrick
  15. Anyone heard any news about a manufacturer making a 72nd Raptor? I heard Hasegawa was making one about 5 years ago but I haven’t heard anything about it since. I was wondering if one of the newer manufacturers like GWH had one planned or if Hasegawa is still working on it?
  16. Here is a 1/72nd scale E-ing kit that I make. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QJ66gsy3oviXuhePD5_jZdFG-3rUXLi1/view?usp=sharing
  17. This one has been halfway built for about a decade, I finally got around to finishing it up. It's a pretty good kit considering how long ago it was released. Lots more pictures and comments at: https://www.kgwings.com/mirage_iv/mirage_iv.html Hope you enjoy, Keith
  18. Hi guys, Long shot I know, but I'm looking for the following decal sheets if anyone has them to spare: 1/48 TwoBobs 48026 - F-15E 'Mountain Home Avengers' 1/72 Caracal 72058 - B-52H Stratofortress  If anyone can help, please drop me a PM. Thanks Dave

  23. What is the best F-18E or F out there?
  24. Hi gentlemen, this will be my first WIP thread on ARC,I will try to show something from my (non-existing) skills through a build of my favourite helicopter and I will learn a lot from your advices too,I hope.I always wanted to start a build here but for a few months I was forced to stay away from modeling because of familly issues.Nothing special...I mean it is very special:I am a daddy of a 8 and a half months old babygirl. :coolio:/> She is in the centre of our interest since her birth but slowly we will have the time to make another activities at least in the evenings...sometimes...I hope. :rolleyes:/> Anyway,I am in love with her.Just to understand my feelings,take a look at her. She is the best model I've ever made. :thumbsup:/> Back to the story.The truth about the building that I've started it at least one year ago,but I did not succeed to go that far in the building.I glued together the seats and a table from the cargo bay. I did some painting job and make some internal detailing around the cockpit with Eduard BigEd for the MH-53. I did some scratch in the fuselage halves also.We are before wash and drybrushing,I need to add some tiny bits also. The plan is to make the internal wiring and put some accessories into the loading bay and keep it open,otherwise I would like to fold the whole helicopter into storing position.That's why the tail of the dragon is missing. Next steps will be some external detailing to keep myself interested in the build. It will be a long road,please join me. Sorry for the poor quality. Any comments and advice are welcome. Regards,Laz
