  1. Hello, Here are few photos of WH dragon which I finished yesterday. It's painted mainly with Vallejo and Tamiya range , with little help of AK silver. Every layer of paint was layed with "drybrusing". Only primer was airbrushed. There is a knight on this dragon, but there was a elf lord in box. I got rid of him because he looked like glam rock star, his saddle looked like throne and whole thing looked like cheesy fantasy metal videoclip scenography And finished...

  2. ORP "Warsaw" II - 1:200 - more that 40 years old :)

    It's possible but not likely When I bought ths model it had a ORP Warsaw number on the hull side but it had a missile launcher on front deck like Krivak-class frigates. Crew member couldn't make such mistake.
  3. Hello, Here is an oldie from me... In 2013 (I guess) I bought scratchbuilt model of polish ORP "Warsaw" II missile destroyer (type 56AE , in Nato: Kotlin SAM) . It's quite old, I guess 40 years at least. It means that it was build when real ship was almost TOP SECRET. The hull is carved from wood and superstructure is made of soldered cooper plates. I don't know name of the builder, but after examining the model thoroughly, I came to respect his skills. He build "Warsaw" probably from censored drawings and blurred photos, using any available materials like wires, plates, nails, meshes and achieved really nice result. I tried to rebuilt this model , to make it more like real "Warsaw" but I left it in "Box of doom". This time maybe I'll finish it. I photocopied paper "Warsaw" by Flymodel and I'll use it as a pattern for additional parts. After few years in box and few "do something, put aside" sessions it looks like on photos below. These are photos from these few years.

  4. Hello, On 10th of december my beloved wife asked me with very difficult question: -For 4 years I gave you 5 models as a gifts. Why you put together only one of them? Well, as you know, there is no safe answer for that question. Only one thing can be done...RUN!!! Well, not at all, nowhere to run...So...had to start this task. And below, you see result of first part. This cycle is painted with Tamiya and Gunze range, polished with Tamiya Fine Compound.

  5. Hello, Before any photos I have to make an introduction as some on anti - communist jokes (very popular in easter Europe) are hardly understandable for rest of the world. In '70 and '80 Radio Yerevan was a fictional news station , which delivered unreliable "hot" news. They were simply making fun of communist propaganda. There were tons of black humour and sarcasm. One of my favourite jokes is: Radio Yerevan informs: a group of chinese communists attacked soviet tractor, working on a field. Tractor defended itself by firing from few rocket cannons and flew-away toward Moscow. Ministry of Agriculture warns chinese commrades: if this incident will occur again , we will send harvesters on fields. This joke became title for my small vignette. Resin mech is from "Raging Heroes" company. Base is styrofoam covered with soil. Plow is scratchbuild as well as soviet border marker. Whole scene is weathered with AMMO and AK fluids. I used paints from Mr-Hobby,Tamiya and Vallejo range. As a "base for a base" I used photo-frame with scanned "Tribune of the people" newspaper (main pro-communist newspaper in Poland before 1989). I inserted fake news (in this case tractor-joke) with Microsoft Paint as a description/title.

  6. Hello! ES-3A Shadow is finished. It's a Italeri set in 1/48 but in fact that's really old ESCI kit with new parts. Main elements fit is good, but the extra parts not at all. The painting manual leaves some to be desired. I made some mistakes, mostly with thoughtlessness Model is painted with Tamiya and Gunze paints, shadowed in with blue. I used Wolfpack seats because kit seats were a nightmare. Best regards, Artur
  7. Hello, Just finished - P3C Orion by Hasegawa - OOB. Painted with Tamiya and Gunze range. DSCN3676 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr DSCN3677 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr DSCN3679 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr DSCN3682 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr DSCN3688 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr
  8. Some time ago I've decided to make models of all helicopters from the "Crow" program. Here is AH-64 Apache. Set is Academy, scale 1/48. I'll never buy Academykit again. An extremely vague instruction, tragic decals, form marks everywhere. Fit is not better. I'd be better buying a Italeri set. Polish markings, of course. Painting is Mr. Hobby and Tamiya. Weathering was dome using AK and Tamiya fluids.
  9. 1/48 Mig-31 NMF Completed.

    I dream about 1/48 Firefox very often. Sadly , too expensive for me Your Mig-31 is really cool!
  10. 1/32 Mig 29 a Revell

    Really nice model, It'll be very hard to pass it by on the contest.
  11. Not user-friendly set of a model of very interesting fighter... Kittyhawk Flying Flapjack is a difficult set. In fact , I'm not recommending it. Sprue gates in strange places, too long mounting bolts or even bolts in inadequate places etc. Anyway, I'm happy with result but sometimes I wanted to throw in out of the window. Painted with Mr.Hobby paints with help of Tamiya washes and AK pigments.
  12. I'll pick up one or two for sure. Never enough 1/32 modern jets😊 First as polish whiff, second as a USAF or IAF one😊
  13. ASF-X Shinden II Hasegawa 1/72

    Thanks She build up really lovely. You can finish it in two configuration of wingtips and nozzles. Also you have choice of underwing stores. Decals are beautifully printed and fit is really good.
  14. Hello, Here is my ASF-X Shinden II by Hasegawa in 1/72. Finished yesterday Painted mostly with Mr. Hobby and weathered with Tamyia paneliners and pigments. Finished in japan camo and markings.
  15. Shinmaywa PS-1 1/72 Hasegawa

    Sorry for bothering you with old stuff but I have this a/c on the bench now. Would You mind telling me what colors were used? I just love this bright scheme of your Shinmeiwa
