  1. HH-60G Pave Hawk, S/N 89-26209, 33rd Rescue Squadron at Kadena Air Base, Japan Kit: Kitty Hawk KH50006 Scale: 1:35 Decals: Werner's Wings Pavehawks Combat Rescue Pt 1 and 2 + few kit decals GAU-18s: Live Resin LRE-35333 Seat belts: Eduard Paints: Mostly Hataka C-series including Gunship Gray plus MRP, Tamiya, Gunze, Life Color, Vallejo, MM An additional MH-60L sprue G has been purchased to get FRIES. Comments: Pictures taken with DSRL in a light tent (5700K LEDs) except few taken outdoors which have slightly blueish background. I will likely do another session outdoors soon because the gunship grey looks better in daylight and it’s easier to fit the whole aircraft in the frame. Overall the kit came together pretty nicely except the fuselage halves. Next time (MH-60L) I will sand the cockpit/cabin walls at the very beginning and dry fit. There are some instruction errors but easy to catch. More pictures on Pbase and Flickr https://pbase.com/danwolo/hh60g_final https://www.flickr.com/photos/97358250@N06/with/49880664952/

  6. Hi all, I'm currently working on my KH 1:48 AH-1Z, and am in the process of adding some detail to it - I've never liked having open photoetched screens with nothing behind them, and on the Cobra, there are a couple that are particularly obvious, because you can see daylight through them. As such, I want to avoid having an empty hole on my model, so I'm looking for photos of what's behind these particular grates: I don't necessarily need extreme detail, but I'd like to at least get an idea of what's behind them, particularly the general location of the structure inside (e.g. is it a small "boxed-in" compartment, or part of a larger open bay, and if so, what's the general arrangement of the "floor/walls" etc.). I've scoured the web and the usual walk-around sites, and found a few photos, but mainly just ones where you can see that there's *something* behind the screen, but not what it actually is... Again, not necessarily looking for extreme technical details, etc (though I wouldn't mind that as well), but more just looking for a general idea of how to "fill" the space so they're not just empty black holes...
  7. So on Facebook tonight I see Kitty Hawk has announced a 1/48 UH-1N in dark blue US Navy markings. Obviously will be based on their UH-1H right? New dog house and new fuselage halves. ot sure what else would be required, well cockpit obviously. Will be good to have so I can use it for my Canadian Twin Huey and not have to work with the Italeri kit which I have been struggling with for the last few years and probably why it sits on the shelf of despair.

  11. Cop

    SU-17 M4

    Been a while since I posted here. But this kit seems so controversial, I thought I would post it up for you all to see. After all that’s been said about this kit, I’m going to nail my colours to the mast and say I like it, and enjoyed building it. It’s not a perfect kit and needs some modelling input to get it right. But I enjoy that sort of thing. For me it’s not so much about the destination, but the journey there. There’s a lot of aftermarket in the finished kit. Eduard internal, and external etched sets. Master Barrels pitots, static wick discharges and cannon barrels. HAD shock cone and wheels. Neomega ejection seat and front wheel well. Which was originally intended for the old Kopro kit. The only thing that is a necessity out of that lot, is the shock cone. The other parts were down to personal preference, and wanting to enhance the level of detail. It was all topped off with a dollop of Mr. Paint. Enjoy Nige.
  12. Hi all! I present to you my latest project, the 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-35S Flanker-E, "Red 08" in the unique Eggplant Dark Gray scheme of the Russian Air Force, circa 2014. This is really a great kit that has excellent fit almost everywhere, with the wing joins being the notable exception. The kit is not without other issues, however. The exhaust nozzles are molded in the straight position which would only be correct for a powered up machine, not drooped at rest. The stinger tail has flare boxes on the top, which is only correct for the prototypes and early production aircraft. Luckily for me, I wanted to do an early production Eggplant Gray aircraft so the stinger tail is correct OOB for my build. If one wants to do a current in-service aircraft, this would not be correct. Aftermarket used were the AMUR Reaver thrust vectoring nozzle to fix the droop issue, and Begemot Decals. The Begemot Decal sheet includes all the needed stencils for both the aircraft and weapons. The weapons are all OOB, and they are very nice, although I am no expert on the real ones, so I cannot comment on accuracy. But they look pretty accurate to me. I think this kit includes pretty much every Russian missile, bomb, and rocket pod currently in use. This will be a nice addition to my weapons bin ( The KH Fitter was the same way, so I am set with Russian Ordnance for a while!) I used copper wire for the static wicks, some thin scrap parts for the 4 straight probes near the nose cone, and a piece of scrap clear sprue to simulate the interior of the IRST. So, one of the things I really wanted to concentrate on this build was the metalwork. The real aircraft have an amazing array of colors from the heat-stressed titanium, and I am quite pleased with how that turned out. It does look a bit exaggerated in some pics, but in person the look is about perfect. The AMUR Nozzles are quite nice and are easy to remove from casting blocks, clean up, paint, and assemble. Very happy with these. I really enjoyed building this kit, and recommend it to everyone. I know the GWH Su-35 is coming, and I will be getting that one as well to do a blue camo in-service jet. But for someone wanting to do the splinter camo prototype or an early batch Eggplant jet, I would say get this kit. Hope you enjoy! Kit: 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-35S Flanker-E Decals: Begemot 48-039 Su-35 "New Generation of the Flanker" Aftermarket: A.M.U.R.

  14. Here is my latest the Kitty Hawk AH-6J. Mostly out of the box. It has the Werner’s Wings downturned exhausts which will be available shortly. I did scratch build the ammo chute attachment points. I also used the sail antenna from a Dragon kit. It will eventually get a FLIR and mount. Decals were sourced from Werner’s Wings and AOA Decals. Werner’s Wings is trying to put together a Gothic Serpent decal sheet since we have new information, especially on the Little Birds, like the exhaust and the black markings. We are also working on the FLIR and mount, as well as, an update set for the avionics above and behind the seats. Stay tuned. Now the model. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it as much as I did building it.

  16. Hi all! So I have been working on the new Kitty Hawk Su-35S and thought I would share my build experience here since I have not seen any others being built elsewhere. I know the GWH Su-35 is coming, but this really looks like a nice kit, and is correct for the version I want to build. I will be getting a GWH Su-35 though, it looks really awesome too, and build a Syrian service jet some day. I plan on doing the Eggplant first production batch, so this kit is correct with the stinger configuration. I am also using the A.M.U.R. Reaver exhaust nozzles, which are fantastic. Also will be using Begemot Decals. So here we go!
  17. Hi all, back again! I just wanted to share my latest completed project, the much maligned Kitty Hawk Su-17/22 Fitter. The boxing is for Su-17M3/M4, but as I understand it, the Su-22M4 is externally identical to the Su-17M4 so that a 22M4 can be built from this box. So I chose to build the new Polish Air Force gray camouflage scheme Su-22M4 Fitter-K. I am sure by now you have heard much about this kit. But this is what I can tell you, from my experience... The engineering leaves one to scratch their head often. Lots of sprue gates in poor locations, 6 piece fuselage, and of course the intake and the shock cone. An aftermarket shock cone is an absolute must. I used a HAD Models one, and it is really nice! I highly recommend it. The lower fuselage has an odd banana shape that is not quite right... But that doesn't really bother me as I loaded it up and added the KKR-1T pod underneath. The instructions are ok, but not fantastic. There are some parts numbering errors to watch out for, although I can't remember them exactly. On the positive side, the detail is just fantastic. The cockpit detail is one of the best OOB ones I have ever seen. The fit of parts is actually mostly quite good. The wings are really well done, near Tamiya-like engineering and fit there. And here is the kicker, for me... I did actually enjoy building this. Now, granted, I built the Revell Tornado just before this, and that thing is a monster to build. This was a walk in the park compared to that. So I may have been a bit influenced by my previous build. I used ModelMaker decals for this, as they are the only ones available for this scheme. Actually, I only used the numbers from ModelMaker. The Polish insignias did not have crisp edges, so I sourced those from a Techmod MiG-29 sheet. Also, the ModelMaker decals came with no stencils. The stencils for this scheme are different colors than the old scheme, so I did not have those. So I had to just find Russian/Polish stencils from kits and decals in my stash and use ones that looked to be the right color and shape and place them according to what I saw in pics. That made the stenciling of this a major pain in the butt. And I hate stenciling period. LOL There are some very good pics online of this scheme, and they all seem to be kept quite clean. So I kept my weathering to a minimum here, unlike my previous few builds. Anyway, enough jibber jabber, I hope you enjoy! Kit: 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-17M3/M4 Decals: ModelMaker Polish Fitters, Polish Insignias from Techmod, and random stencils from many Russian/Polish subject kits Aftermarket: HAD Models Shock Cone, Master Model Pitot Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Tamiya Liquid White Primer (for marble coat), Gunze Aqueous FS 36375 Light Ghost Gray, and Dark SeaGray, Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Green, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Hot Metal Violet, Hot Metal Blue, 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.
  18. If anyone isn't using the US Navy markings from the Kitty Hawk Seasprite kit, I could sure use them. I can purchase or we can look to trade. PM me if you have them and are willing to part with them. TIA
