  1. 1/35 Dragon JSU-152

    Thank you
  2. 1/35 Dragon JSU-152

    Thank you ! The tracks are link to link out of the box, and they are (as always to me) a pain to assemble...hours messing with the glue and sticks to maintain the form. Its a nice model, a bit old but i think it's still nice. Only issue is that the hull is a bit low, so the tracks touches the fenders. I had to put some plastic to rise the hull a bit.

    Thank you guys!
  4. Good night fellow modelers Made this JSU-152 in Berlin. I m happy with the overall result, but it could be better, there are some thing that should be better...maybe if the cannon was face front with the ruins... Next one will be better...Always learning, and learn always... Regards, JMendes

    Hi Jan, As KP is a great sorce for new molds of WW2 Soviet fighters, as the La-5 family in 1/72 (great models, congratulations !), why don t you consider the MIG-3 and Lagg-3?. These fighters were great in WW2 and are beautiful machines, aesthetically speaking...and the model market simply doesn t have any modern molds of this planes. I can t understand why no company has pick up on these planes. Regards, JMendes
  7. Thank you guys!! Always a pleasure to hear good words!
  8. Thank you fellow modellers!
  9. Thank you all !! I had to cut the Indian to make it conform! I became a fan of the P47 ...beautiful plane!
  10. Fellow plastic companions ... Just finished the Academy 1/72 - P-47D Bubbletop Thunderbolt. I think its a little nice model, but the decals are so bad...especially the big front ones, they re thick and they simply do not "glue" or adhere to the model. Next time i ll just buy other decals. I was my first "metal finish" model and i really learned a lot, i conquered my fear of the metal paint and next one will be better. I just could nt control myself with the weathering, i though of a light weathered model...but in the end it came out a bit beaten, i simply prefer a weathered model, even if its not historically realistic. Final photos: I think it doesn t look awful in the shelf, maybe ill do a little base later to go with the weathering. Regards, João Mendes

    A great "clean" job...Beatifull model !
  12. Thank you for the kind words... Here you go...pics of the StuGs rear: I realised that i only have these two...i guess normally we only focus on front and sides to show pics. I m taking notes for more pics of rear, from subjects, in the next build. Thank you for making me realise another thing to improve !! Regards
  13. Thank you Pete. I had to study and decipher some steps...but overall is a nice model.
  14. Thanks for the kind words !
