  1. Source: https://vk.com/doc-29859496_526077927 - ref. 7321 - Lockheed C-130H Hercules In the picture a C-130J from 86th Airlift Wing /37th Airlift Squadron - Ramstein AB To be followed V.P.
  2. Zvezda is to release in 2020 a 1/48th Mil Mi-24V/VP "Hind-E" kit - ref. 4823 First 3D renders pictures in the new catalogue. Russian forums and posts from Zvezda representatives evoke a future Mi-24 family of kits D/V/P etc. A included? That's the question. Sources: https://vk.com/zvezdamodels?w=wall-29859496_2488861 https://www.facebook.com/Zvezda.ModelKits/photos/pcb.2042464635856330/2042462482523212/?type=3&theater V.P.
  3. I'm calling it finished...... It's a great kit - if a little 'over engineered', but it looks good when finished..... Close up of the bridge and two missile launch tubes... The bow - with optional open torpedo loading hatch.... The rear end - with replacement 3d-printed props.... It's a big beast - and is being upgraded and kept in service to replace the too-expensive Typhoons. The Delta's are named after Russian cities - in this case Tula - note the city crest on the front of the bridge... Excellent replacement propellers from Michael Fuller..... The WIP thread is here -
  4. The latest 1/350 scale submarine kit from Zvezda is the massive Delta IV (Delfin) class of Russian SSBN.... Moulded in black plastic, the lower hull is made up from three sections - two lower vertically split sides plus a top.... The twin five-bladed propellers each have to made up from a central shaft - to which are attached the five separate scimitar-shaped blades The missile casing is also separate - made up from two side panels (below) and a top section (above)... This complex hull construction would allow (I think?) for a waterline build - although the vertical fin/rudder would have to be modified... (lower section cut off?) Internal bulkheads are included to stiffen the hull - but it remains to be seen how good the many joints are.... This sprue contains the various masts/periscopes, hatches for the two missile tubes, dive planes and doors for the topedo-loading hatches. Zvezda include a display stand - depicting a rocky sea bed..... The decal sheet is well printed and includes the white waterline stripes and depth markings, plus the town emblem after which she is named - Tula.... It also contains the boats pennant number - K-114 - and the name Tula (in Latin and Cyrillic) in gold to go on the display stand.... The painting and decal placement guide gives Zvezda and Tamiya colours... (and you can learn a bit of Russian while you are at it....) Lastly - the four-page construction sheet is 'busy' - but readable... I have already got a Delta IV SSBN in my collection - from Alanger........ So it will be interesting to compare the two models....... Interestingly, the hull breakdown suggests - as well as a waterline option (although not mentioned in the instructions), the fact that it has a separate missile casing - could they make the earlier Delta II & III from the same hull moulds?? This needs investigating more... This is a very welcome new kit from Zvezda - more power to them. Ken

  11. Logging my Zvezda SU-33 build. I am doing a Yellow 13 themed build instead of the standard blue/gray Russian naval paint job. For those who do not know, Yellow 13 is the main "boss" adversary in the Ace Combat 4 video game. In the game, his (and his squadron's) planes are listed as SU-37's, but in reality they are SU-33's. All glued up and in major need of putty and sanding all over the place. The belly, complete with intakes... The intakes will need a fiar bit of putty and sanding to get them looking right. Bit of a rushed job on the cockpit. Did not feel like putting the pilot figure in and completely forgot to put decals on before gluing the pit into the fuselage. We will see how/if I can fix this major snafu. Pretty happy with how the exhaust nozzles came out. I like the weathered look that came from overbuffing them. Makes them look used and abused. Need to seal them to avoid further wearing. Another view of the Exhaust. Again, pleased with how they came out overall. Inside was a mix of Alclad pale burnt metal and a dusting of MM metalizer exhaust lacquers. More to come once main wings are placed, sanding and puttying are done, and painting begins. Any tips, tricks, or suggestions on this kit, or my theme are welcome and greatly appreciated!
  12. Zvezda's T90 in 72nd scale #5020 built oob, lovely piece of kit, very very good. single length tracks are a bit problematic but still manageable. Enjoy
  13. Hi everyone! Here's my first finished build of 2018. Yeah, I'd normally have 3 or 4 finished by now, but life got in a way a bit :D Here's the link to the in-progress thread: More about the model and full gallery at my blog: https://vvsmodelling.com/2018/03/25/yakovlev-yak-130-mitten/
  14. Hi everyone! New project on the bench - Zvezda's 1:72 Yak-130. I wanted to build a model of this aircraft since I first saw it at MAKS, and luckily Zvezda fulfilled my wish. Inspecting the instructions, one can see that the construction starts with the rear of the aircraft and it's quite complicated - at least on paper. On the other hand, the complex break down ensures the correct shapes of the full length jet intakes among other things. Double S-curvature of the intakes (vertical and lateral) is faithfully reproduced along with the turbine blades. I have only filled the front - visible part of the seam. Lower part of the intakes serves also as the main landing gear wells. While nicely detailed, only little will be seen through small apertures. Unfortunately due to the design of the wheel well doors (most are closed and open only during the transition), main landing gear struts have to be attached before closing the fuselage sides.
  15. Hello friends Wanting to expand my collection of the Russian Navy I decided to make this model. It is of the Zvezda brand at 1/350 scale which in my opinion comes quite well done. I really liked making this model for all the details that have been made. https://youtu.be/t-zOHhYKNNE Greetings and I hope you like it
  16. I would like to present you my latest model: Su-33 Flanker D made of Zvezda kit. The kit is really nice: perfect fitted, with nice details, but with few minor issues (coarse surface on engine cowlings, wide and shallow panel lines etc.). Generally work was just a real fun. This model was commission build, so I had to prepare the stand on my own. I used board from carpenter, then I painted it, prepared masks for text, painted it, and then inserted plexi rods, curved in boiling water. For this Su-33 I used Gunze, Tamiya, Alclad and Mr. Paint paints, no additional afetrmaked have been used. Enjoy.
  17. haven't been able to do anything worthwhile for the past month due to heat waves, now the temp is going down i am slowly picking up pace. this is zvezda's 3632 bmw r12 with driver and officer boxing. lovely kit, no issues. fuel drum and jerry cans are from tamiyas german fuel drums set, the grass is cut from modelscene's early summer with calc stones matting, earth is tamiya's earth paste. tiny amount of washes and pigments as usual. enjoy
  18. AKA The Queen Of The Skies. Kit is from Zvezda in 1/144, very good engineering and fit but with very bad decals which doesn’t fit the kit in most places due to the intricate nature of the aircrafts paint scheme.
  19. Hi everyone! Here's my latest project done. This is the excellent Zvezda 1:72 MiG-29 in S model (izdeliye 9.13) built in the markings of aerobatic group Strizhi (Swifts). The model was built for "Build a Bear Group Build" currently running here at ARC. You can access full article with photogallery here: https://vvsmodelling.com/2016/10/23/mig-29-9-13-fulcrum-c-swifts/
  20. Hi everyone Here's the first blog post of my current project, Zvezda's 1:72 MiG-29 9.13 in the markings of aerobatic group Strizhi (Swifts). Link to he blog: https://vvsmodelling.com/2016/10/12/mig-29-9-13-swifts-pt-1/
  21. After finally finishing the MiG-25RBF conversion, I've finally gotten around to building Zvezda's 1/72 MiG-29. I don't know if it's just me, but this kit practically snaps together, and with little seam lines to show for it. It seems like it'll need a fraction of the filler than your usual kit needs, let alone ICM's MiG-29 9-13. I don't know how it compares to Great Wall Hobby's 1/48 9-13 (mine is still collecting dust, sadly) but this kit is a breeze so far. I haven't seen much in the way of completed builds, though. Probably not looking hard enough.
