  1. Hello Everyone, The build is a MIG29SMT built into an Indian Air Force MIG29UPG taking off on a Wet Runway with Glowing Afterburners. The kit used is a Trumpeter MIG29SMT in 1/72 size. Most of the work done was on making the Flame look realistic enough. The flame is Clear Resin and is lit by using 2 White LEDs housed in the exhaust cans. The model is painted using the bare basic techniques of preshading and light coats of grey color to make this an IAF grey machine. Paints used were acrylics. This was a first trial run to make the Afterburner Flames, so I hope this becomes a step in producing more of such models. Do Enjoy the Build. . . Cheers . . . . 🙂
  2. I'm building Trumpeter's 1/48 MIG-21UM and broke a canopy in half. I emailed "Joanna" at Trumpeter and received this cryptic response: I'm very sorry that due to the epidemic, flights to various countries are reduced, so the delivery of EMS express is very slow, and it needs to wait for 2-3 months.But you can choose to use fedex, but the cost requires you to pay the freight. What does that mean? How can I go about ordering the clear canopy sprue? How much will it cost? From whom can I order it? And how shall I pay for it? Has anyone else ever ordered replacement sprues from Trumpeter before? Thanks.
  3. Well hello! 🍓 Let's build that beast! This is my second model in this scale and after the B-2 in 1/72 - everything in it looks ginormous. 🙂 I somehow found out after the B-2 that the bomber planes have a slightly different structure and shape from the jetfighters, and i liked it too.... in a different way, but still i like it a lot and that's how i decided to build the Nighthawk. This F-117 kit is giant. It has metal landing gear, PE intake screens, rubber tyres and canopy with thin flat sides - almost like windows with no blurs or distortion whatsoever, while the decals are only a few: This is what i got for the improvement of this yet high-quality kit - the AFV Club's canopy with anti reflection coating from the inner side, the unused in my F-15E model tyre+wheel set by GTR, and a piece of PE screen for the sensors. I only need to get a pilot figure. So, the landing gears are first and i'll start them these days. I plan to make the model in 2 modes again - inflight and parked. With everything that can move - moveable 🙂 but in full stealth mode so the antennas, the RCS enhancers and the lights will not be added. That's it for now. Thanks for following along!
  4. Hopefully I am doing this right... I have a few high end kits with the "BigEd" goodies. I would like them to go to a good home. I have a Trumpeter F-6F-3 (1/32) w/BigEd, Kinetic S2E (1/48) w/BigEd. I am a disabled veteran with bilateral Acoustic Neuroma (s). I will probably never get to them -let alone finish them. Anyone interested? Hopefully I posted this right! Of course I will include pics etc., But before I put a lot of effort into this, I wanted to check interest?!? Thanks all, take care of you and yours. -Tom 267-410-9164

  6. Hello friends, here I bring you the flagship of the Russian Navy, the aircraft carrier Kuznetsov. Final touches are made, planes and helicopters are placed on the deck, elevators are detailed and the roof is painted. The model is placed on a wooden base with water simulation. Greetings and I hope you like it
  7. Hello looking to acquire your spare afterburner can from your Trumpeter C kit (2838). The AB can I need is the bulbus type, not the smooth external type. The spare can is located on the sprue with the lower wing parts, I do not know the number on the sprue. The AB actually came off the F-102 engine and was used on F-100 D and F ANG aircraft only. So if you have the spare part in your box, or not planning to use...I will certainly help the environment and recycle this part. Thank you for looking!!
  8. hi everybody! this time i'm gonna break the rules and publish on this forum section rather than the "display case" which i deem to receive little attention in our forum. hope that i won't get a stick hit on my fingers... yeah, my guys, i have built the thud and with her i have completed my 1/72 "century series", which makes me, modestly, PROUD! the previous project, the super sabre, was a former step in this achievement, but the lack (!!!) of the warning red stripes on the decal sheet -i am waiting stripe decals to be delivered as aftermarket item- make her labeled as "incomplete", thence i will publish the album only after she will receive her due warning stripes. both kits are trumpeter's, and i might say that, decals accidents apart -i also had ro resort to a set of xtradecal's stars and bars as the blue of the original ones was too light and somewhat metallic- they both did build with plain pleasure, with the due challlenge of complex steps, but what i got from those two projects was truely, even in the most hazardous passages, just pure fun. i confess that i had never tried trumpeter before, but if the going is this, i'd dare to compare the quality of detail and engineering with -let me add an "almost"- tamiya! the thud is a true war machine, born to bear at supersonic speed a nukeload in her bellly, and bare metal like this she's even more warlike and deadly than with the s.e.a. camo and the pure wild force of tenths of iron bombs hanging. i know that someone's brows will rise up and fall back to their naps about the type of green i choose for the fuselage. actually, i feel the need to tell you something about the apparently eccentric whim that brought me to choose f.s. 34102 euro 1 dark green for the green area. i had used that paint only once in my life when building the a-10 warthog, enjoyed the euro camo effect, and stowed it away with the rarely used paints. when it came to thiis thud's green, i had something dark in the back of my mind, and now i know what it was: the black spine of the monogram "action" thud artwork of my childhood. thus i tested a lot of different greens that could be, from vallejo nato green, to mr. hobby field green, to f.s. 34079 -which btw, also looking at some pics, should have been the "right" one- but each and everyone looked too light and a somewhat faded green. in search of a darker and "greener" green i tested also r.l.m. luftwaffe's schwarzgrun, and usmc green. no way: too gray the former, too dark the latter. eventually, the classic "lightbulb" went on in my head, i did some archaeology and brough to the light the euro 1. i tested it. it was definitely not the green that appears in most of the pictures i had seen, though there seem to be there exceptions, but IT was the color i had had in my brains for so long: not black (that btw was on the very early thuds) but dark and green enough. hit! i will be happy to get your comments if you will have a look at google photos album here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/4wjoisCWz2FWKNbAA yeah, the fuse and the canopy have different hues, rather densities. this is due to a stupid accident that brought me to paint gloss aluminum the canopy apart in order to latter mask the yellow seals...only to realize, seals masked and done, that i should have painted it green! by then i had already discarded the eduard masks so i masked again, but only along the frames limits using my "maketar canopy survival kit" -i recommend it!- and micro tapes, and handbrush painted green. unfortunately, the model master acryl fs 34102 is particularily sensitive to air or hand brushing, so there's a difference. perhaps someday if i get inspired i will pass a coat of heavily thinned paint hoping that it would end out lighter... it might be that i've gone out of my head, but i'm even sure that this paint is no extravagancy albeit the true color! and i'm not the only case... it seems that this indulgence is more diffused among the modelers than one could expect, for i have seen several thuds in all scales that had been painted with a dark and green spine, not the faded green (fs 34079, and various shades of o.d.) which should be canonically perfect for f-84 and -a tad darker- for f-86. best ciaos, my friends, season greetings to all, and...happy modeling! bobo.
  9. Dear all, I am considering getting the Trumpeter 1/48 kit. Don´t know yet if it will be a C or D. I know, there is an issue with the intake, which is addressed by some AM companies. How good is the kit actually? Is it a) get a new intake, the rest is fine b) it has some issues (please tell me which) but builds into an accurate replica when corrected. c) get it only if you really need a 1/48 F-100 with recessed panel lines, otherwise go Monogram. There is a corrected tail fin for the C model and corrected 335gal drop tank noses. What are the issues in these cases? Nit-picking or serious shape issues? Thanks for your help! Thomas
  10. Exhuasts coming soon. These were made by modifying and adapting the exhausts Alexander made for the MiG-29M/K kit (also used for the Zactomodels Revell correction set). They are now full depth. I'm working on instruction the sheet and production molds and expect to release them soon.
  11. Anyone here who knows/build it?.. It looks fine in first quick wiew 😊 What aftermarket should i get?
  12. I am missing both the decal sheets and canopies to my two kits. Just missing these things to complete them. If anyone has these items please let me know. I’d even gladly take canopies off an older built kit that is now spares. Thanks, Lee
  13. Dear all when the MiG-21F-13 from Trumpeter was released, there was a thread here about it´s accuracy issues, IIRC. Using the search reveals nothing for me. Maybe I´m using the wrong key words. Does anybody has it still linked, or created it and can post the link? Many thanks, Thomas
  14. Greetings, I am currently about to start work on Trumpeter's 72nd scale Mig-31BM, however there is a huge mis-mold on the inner front part of the canopy, as shown in the pictures below (linked from Britmodeller forums) Sanding and polishing seems like the obvious way, however since it's the inside and there is a lot of detail around, I was wondering if anyone knows a "safe" way or some trick to do it. Thanks
  15. Hello folks, this is Trumpy's Chinese Army Type89 120mm anti tank gun built oob. kit was almost ok until the very last moment where the vinyl band tracks were a good 1cm short, so i had to move both idler wheels back and strengthen first and last road wheels due to the vinyl being not elastic enough. Still a pleasant build, after going tru some ref shots from the interwebs i decided to ramp up the dust, believe me this is very much restricted versus the real life shots these behemots being covered almost entirely in wet mud somehow (concealment?!)... Enjoy.
  16. Just finished - the excellent Trumpeter Su-34 kit in 1/72 scale........ Trumpeter missed a few things - the curved fillet between the wing L/E and the ESM pod (when fitted)..... ... the Blind Flying curtains inside the cockpit..... .... and the APU exhaust outlet on top of the tailboom... Ken
  17. Hello friends, the engine is completely painted and finished in its support on the transport car. This has been a very entertaining work because of the amount of pieces made to scratch and all the information gathered to make the model as real as possible. https://youtu.be/4pa5DXsmifI Playlist of the entire montage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qH4NLRAHfk4&list=PLR6SGGlMyWrezl_Al_Bc2pkKFYrMp6HXL Greetings and I hope you like it
  18. Hello friends, here I bring you the flagship of the Russian Navy, the aircraft carrier Kuznetsov. It is of the brand Trumpeter at scale 1/700 which comes very well detailed. I really liked to make this model for all the details that have been possible. https://youtu.be/aCEIS_ukdSk Greetings and I hope you like it
  19. Hello friends, in this third part all the engine components are finished and painted for later assembly. If you have not seen the other parts here I leave the link: Part 1: https://youtu.be/qH4NLRAHfk4 Part 2: https://youtu.be/P8wTD-OVy2s Greetings and I hope you like them.

  21. Following the 'comparison' thread - I have made a start on building the Trumpeter 1/72 scale Su-34..... I won't post pics of the sprues - they are available elsewhere and here - just progress photos of the build. The cockpit is quite comprehensive - with a separate door in the rear bulkhead..... but note those ejection pin recesses in the structure behind the seats. Similarly, the nosewheel bay looks accurate - complete with two-parts for the sliding access hatch..... The K-36 ejection seats are quite simplified - I would replace them if the cockpit was open - but they are acceptable given the closed cockpit... Trumpeter even provide the rudder pedals and very nice control collums - decals are provided for the front and side instrument panels - although the starboard panel curled up on me and I couldn't get it straight... Note the rear door - which I have posed open. The nosewheel bay in place - although not mentioned in the instructions, the front access hatch can be clicked in place and made to slide open..... Open.... Closed.... View into the wheel bay.... note the sliding front hatch. Top and bottom fuselage halves glued together..... I have made an attempt at re-profiling the nose to make it sharper - with moderate success...... It isn't 100% - but it looks much better - I might shave a bit more off to make the 'beak' sharper - but without going through the plastic!!... Re-shaped Trumpeter nose compared to the Italeri nose.... More later... Ken
  22. Updated 2/27/2018 Hello everyone, Prices do not include shipping, and I'd recommend keeping this in the USA because of shipping costs. However, if you really want a kit and are willing to pay for the outrageous shipping charges, we can talk. Payment can be via PayPal--friends and family is appreciated but not expected or required. Money orders will also work.

  23. This isn't a bad kit, although I believe the conning tower is a bit inaccurate. It makes up into a reasonably sized model that looks pretty good. I decided on a North Korean submarine after seeing some picture of Kimmy boy riding on one. I liked the green top colour, I have no idea what the anti-fowling paint colour was, but a wine red colour seemed plausible enough. I had a bit of fun with weathering, I figured these things would be pretty battered, they are over 50 years old afterall.
  24. Hello friends, in this second part the assembly of the engine is continued, painting of interior parts, manufacture of external components to scratch, realization of pipes and much more. We also continue to move forward with the transport car and the support for the engine. If you have not seen the first part here I leave the link: https://youtu.be/qH4NLRAHfk4 Greetings and I hope you like it
  25. Hey guys, I am building su-27 1/32 from trumpeter. I also bought linden hill decals and want to build red 04, which visited Sweden and was newly painted before this visit. Copyrighted material removed (Admin) Edit: Removed was the link which was displayed directly as the picture...here the link again, not sure why would be a link copyrighted.. http://img.wp.scn.ru/camms/ar/652/pics/1_10.jpg Now linden hill has only side views for this scheme plus a top view for a standard scheme, which was completely different, so it's useless. I was not able to find anything that would give me a better idea about the scheme, Would there be somebody able to help me? Please? Thanks
