Just finished - after it was put aside for a while - the Amodel kit of the elegant Italian Piaggio P-180 'Avanti'..... Two marking options are given in this release - a Spanish-registered charter turboprop EC-LPJ - or an Italian Marina version.... I replaced the ill-fitting clear cabin windows with black decals - printed onto clear decal sheet using my inkjet printer. Because of the decal windows, I left out the fully-detailed cabin interior (which can't be seen cleary even if the clear windows are used). The Avanti is typically Italian - like a flying Ferrari - although I have heard some people say it is ugly??? I think it's gorgeous. Ken PS - Some more photos - plus sprue and build shots.... here.
Finally finished - my conversion of the new injection-moulded Amodel Be-10 'Mallow' into the proposed missile-carrying Be-10N (it never actually flew) The radar nose is from a 1/350 scale nuclear submarine - and the K-10BS anti-ship missiles are scratched from plastic knitting needles and plastic card. More photos - including WIP - here. Ken
I couldn't post this earlier - because of the ARC server upgrade....... This is the new 1/72 scale Amodel kit of the Soviet-era jet flying boat - the Beriev Be-10 'Mallow'. Box art..... Probably due to mould size limitations, the fuselage is in front and rear halves - which might make for an interesting joint !! The third part of the fuselage is the tail gun position - plus the centre section and wing fences. Upper and lower centre section parts.... Upper..... .... and lower wing halves.. There is quite a lot of flash present - but the engraved panel detail is well executed Ken
