  1. 1/32 Trump MiG-29 Stuff

    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.
  2. Hello everyone, Welcome to another large purge from the stash! All of these kits have parts still attached to sprues and typically sealed in bags. 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. Because of the size and weight of the kits, don't be surprised if the shipping charges are north of $14-15. I'll only charge what USPS or FedEx charges. Payment can be via PayPal--friends and family is appreciated but not expected or required. Let's communicate via PMs, at least for the initial inquiry. That way I can keep track of when different persons contact me (first come, first serve). Because it's a purge, no trades at this time.

  3. Title pretty much says it all, I am looking to trade for a Trumpeter 1/48 F-100D Super Sabre. Any boxing will do, and I don't even need the box or decals, as long as the kit is otherwise complete and unstarted. I am in Florida, and would prefer to keep trades to the CONUS for shipping costs, but I will consider Canada and other places, depending on what you want in trade. My Trade list is below.

  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. Su-27 Red 04 scheme

    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
  7. I am pleased to announce our new line of 1/32 scale resin seamless intakes for the Trumpeter A-6 kit line. The set includes: Seamless resin Intake sets pressure cast in White resin Correct interior details of the engine tube protruding into the intake duct. Other brands do not have this important detail which is easily seen on this jet. Detailed intake fan stator has thinned blades and is designed to use the Kit PE fans provided by Trumpeter. Price is $25 plus shipping. Please see pictures of these exciting new products at our Web Site: www.gtresinproducts.com
  8. Hello partners Because of its design and its way of acting on the battlefield, I decided to build this battle tank. The model is the Stridsvagn 103 version C of the Trumpeter brand at 1/35 scale. Being a tank without turret, its low profile stands out against other models. https://youtu.be/p1NLEeblI1U Greetings and I hope you like friends

  12. Hello friends Here I show you the Chinook helicopter version CH-47A. I had to scratch a support to place the folded blades for not having enough space. The models are from the Trumpeter brand at 1/35 scale, which in my opinion comes very well detailed. If a partner wants details about the support of the blades he writes me. Greetings and I hope you like it https://youtu.be/cORriK4ePvk

  17. 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
  18. I have now got both of the existing 1/72 scale kits - the new one from Trumpeter (2017 release) - and the old one from Italeri (released in 1995) - so I thought I'd do a comparison.... these are just my personal opinions BTW..... The Trumpeter kit is typical from them - excellent packaging, crisp moulding and loads of weaponry and very expensive - but also some shape errors. It also represents the latest configuration - whereas the Italeri kit is of a Su-34 from about 20 years ago... Trumpeters excellent box art....... .... and superb packaging. But the nose is way off !!! .... compared to the real thing Italeri got it much better - all those years ago..... Italeri upper fuselage mated to Trumpeter lower.... Italeri lower fuselage mated to Trumpeter upper. Note the strakes on the Trumpeter kit (an addition since Italeri kitted their version). Trumpeter moulded the fuselage and wings as one part...... (but got the wingspan wrong - they measured the span WITHOUT the wingtip launch rails - so it works out at 208mm instead of the correct 204mm - Italeri is nearer at 205mm) Note also the sharp edge to the curved engine nacelles..... Italeri's nacelles are blended in better - much more subtle. Italer got their fins wrong - the early Su-34 prototypes had a taller fin taken from the Su-27UB - it was later replaced with a shorter fin taken from a single-seat Su-27. Trumpeter's fin (on the left) is better. Trumpeter provide the latest tailboom - with a built-in APU - but it is a half-hearted attempt - you have to cut out a recess and fit the intake grille into it. And.... they don't provide the APU exhaust flaps at the top rear of the tailboom.... Trumpeter (top) and Italeri tailbooms - Italeri is too long. More later Ken
  19. 1/72 Su-30MKI

    Hello ARC, Here's my latest... Trumpeter's 1/72 Su-30MKK with Naza Model Art's conversion kit and Begemot decals to make an Indian Air Force Su-30MKI. I painted the model with Mr. Color lacquers, which I mixed to match some photos I have from a recent exercise in the US. I am by no means a Flanker expert or know anything about the IAF, however It seems the more recent visits of these jets to the US and UK sport this darker shade of gray. It also seem that they have recently adopted the red/white Western-style ejection seat warning triangles underneath the canopy rail. So I just had to include them on my model... kind of an odd East meets West thing. The weapons came from multiple sources; the KAB-500L LGBs are from Advanced Modeling, the EL/L-8222 ECM pod is from Wolfpack, the Litening targeting pod is from Eduard, and the missiles are stolen from the Zvezda Su-33 (hint to what's next...). The stand was built from a block of oak and an aluminum bar I found in my garage. I posed the model as if it were just competing a rejoin on a tanker... IFR probe extended, throttles back (nozzles open), and the speed brake partially extended to stop the last bit of closure as the pilot matches airspeed with the tanker. Pre-contact, stable, ready... Hope you like model! Todd
  20. 1/48 Trumpeter Mig-3 Late Review/Preview

    This week we are back looking at another prop kit again, with Trumpeter's Mig-3 Late kit in 1:48th scale.
  21. 1/35 KV-2 in German Service

    Hey guys, quite a while back my friend wanted me to build him a monstrous KV-2. But instead of a typical Russian green, he wanted something unusual. A what if "German captured it, and repainted to their needs" The kit was quite a pleasure to work with, and after a few weeks, the beast was done.
  22. Hello, My name is David, I´m from Germany and I have been an aviation enthusiast for many years now, but this is my first post on ARC. As I am very interested in small air forces in general and in the middle east particularly, I have read a good deal of books about the Iran-Iraq-War. A few days ago, i opened the book "Iraqi Fighters" searching for inspiration for my next project, and I found a nice sideview of MiG 23BN #1428, No.29 squadron, Iraqi Air Force, as used in the very first attack on Iranian targets on the afternoon of 22 september 1980. The plane was armed with FAB-250ShN parachute-retarded bombs (M46 I think ?). I now have three questions: 1. Is the FAB-250ShN in any way different from the "normal" FAB-250 M46 ? Or can I use an ordinary one for my model, because I don´t know any firm which produces FAB-250ShN bombs in 1/48 scale. 2.Is there any information wether the bombs used were M46 or M54 ones, apart from the picture in the book which shows M46 (but the text says the primary bomb type was the FAB-250 M54) ? 3. Near the wing root of the MiG 23BN there is a small, oval "thing" which looks like a guidance pod of some sort. Was this "thing" ever built in on Iraqi MiG 23s and if so was it built in on both wings or just one of them ? Thank you for reading, Best regards David
  23. Cheers folks, I'd like to show you a few photos of my 1/32nd scale EA-6B Prowler, a scratchbuilt conversion based on Trumpeter's A-6A kit. This conversion required the whole bunch of techniques I have access to - CNC milling, laser cutting, 3D printing and classic scratchbuilding. The decal artwork was drawn by me and then silk printed in Czech Republic. I am currently working on a carrier deck diorama , USS Kitty Hawk's port stern section to be precise; this is the area at least one Prowler was typically parked. The Birdcage was fully scratchbuilt as it has nothing in common with its counterpart on the Intruder. The deck personnel is from Reedoak, the pilots were built using parts from several 'classic' resin figures. When will we finally get some up-to-date Naval aviators in 32nd scale?! Here's an early stage of the carrier deck section with the Prowler on top. If you are interested in seeing how the Prowler was built and if you want to see how the deck is being built, feel free to check out my Facebook page "Scale Navy Stuff"; you can find the link in my signature. If you have any critique, comments, remarks or questions, please don't hesitate to ask! As soon as the deck is finished, I'll take some better photos and post them here! Cheers Ben
