  1. Yeah, I had bought this kit over a decade ago all the way from New York City. The store was supposed to be the sole hobby shop in Manhattan and although the selection wasn't that spectacular, I chose this kit since at that time I had been reading a lot about the Eastern Front and I knew this was supposed to be a nice kit with all the interior details like its bigger Trumpeter cousin. I also had read the fit wasn't necessarily that good and that many parts would have flash on them. That really was the case. Through the years I had tried to start this kit several times but to no avail. I still read about the WWII and now that my 7 years old son is interested in armour (we've watched movies like Fury and Saving Private Ryan and of course B of B TV series and he plays World of Tanks) I finally had the urge to tackle with this kit. This is actually my first proper tank model after chilhood's Matchbox armour. No AM parts were used but for the first time I used several MiG (or AK) weathering products. I also tried to achieve some streaking effects with oils - for the first time as well. My goal was a pretty fresh machine but with some obvious signs of use in dry summer conditions - somewhere in the Eastern Front. The only scratched additions are in the fighting compartment and in the engine bay. The diesel lines and some wiring and cabling were added here. Oh, and the antenna and its spring mount was made from wire. The turret was completely smooth on the surface so I used liquid glue to soften it up and then used an old toothbrush to achieve that harsh look of cast steel.
  2. Now that the Tamiya Tony is in the case, time to start on the next project which I picked up in Chattanooga in January, The Hasegawa 1/48 P-39 along with a beautiful wooden base from Bases by Bill (picture coming!) with the nametag of the Soviet P-39 ace Alexander Pokryshkin. Picked up the kit as a package with the nice wooden base and name plaque, and the Eduard PE bits for the interior, placards and flaps. I'm more used to Eduard's really nice P-39 kits which are mostly out of production now, but the Hasegawa kit has a nice level of detail and the Eduard PE just adds to the detail. Name tag from Bases by Bill: Here is the cockpit floor, with some of the Eduard PE bits attached: Debated on using the Eduard PE seat, but it is so much thinner than the kit set, and has much better detail. Still have some work to do but got it together. Have to close some gaps. The Eduard PE rudder pedals: Here is the kit IP, on the right, sanded down and the angle parts cut off, to take the Eduard PE color IP, which has already been sandwiched using Formula 560 clear glue. Will paint the exposed part with Interior Green or black as appropriate. Here is the IP all together, with the PE machine guns: Base coat of Model Master Acryl Interior Green. Nice detail showing up on the seat (and bits still be to be added). The floor shows where the tweezers were holding it during painting. Should be behind the seat-back and under the equipment shelf. Probably will touch it up with a brush anyway. Used a drill bit to open up the holes in the canopy frame. The Hasegawa kit is pretty good so far. And a couple of the black bits painted - lower instrument panel with the two slots for the PE knobs, and the radio which goes behind the seat. Will address that seam on top: So just getting started, lots of details still to be painted. Stay tuned! Chris
  3. Hello Fellows, Does anyone know what happened to RedStarScaleModels out if Atlanta GA? Their Facebook domain expired and it seems they just disappeared. Any insight? Many Thanks, afoxbat
  4. Hi guys After about 4 years no finishing a kit, finally found something attractive enough for me to start with. Yes it's the new ICM 1/48 MiG-25RBT, my favourite MiG-25 variant rather than the interceptor type. And what's more awesome is that ICM even chose my most favourite RBT scheme, the very famous and honored 47th GRAP "Red 46" which is very famous for her nice performance during Chechen–Russian conflict in 2001. Simply cannot resist the "Hero of Soviet" mark and the colourful communist badges! As being said for the error ICM made unfortnately in the kit, is that the nose cone is actually an early RB but not the RBT, I started with the nose correction. Please be noticed that not ONLY the bulge you need to add, but also you need to flat the right side light panel to smooth, then add some panel lines with rivets. Pictures could tell more easily: After several rounds of reshape/sanding, scribe the panel lines then spray the surfacer for check. To be honest I'm still not satisfied enough about the result since the bulge seems too narrow. But since it's underneath, I chose to live with it somehow.
