  1. To complete this story, just tested VEB Plasticart custom print mug , given by the Lift Here as a present. Rooibos, with drop of rum. Thanx Dragan.
  2. Being impatient , and since paint and decal clear base ( Future a.k.a. PRONTO in my part of the world) are dry, i started and finished decalling this evening, And complete ILYUSHA , Ready for inspection, here :
  3. VEB PLASTICART - DDR , Ilyushin IL-18 1:100 , restoring project. First one in 2018. WIP here :
  4. With some trouble related to plastic-paint/clear cote reaction and some re-sanding and repainting, after the upper part of the fuselage was masked, coat of silver paint was sprayed, in two tone/shades, lighter for the airframe, bit darker to control surfaces and engine nacelles . and dayglo orange wing and horizontal stab tips painted, Now, few days of drying and ready for decalling .
  5. VEB Plasticart kits plastic is brittle and hard to engrave , also, very prone to orange peel effect , if used cellulose or acrylate thinners . Ask me how i learn this :-) Even Mr Surfacer 500/1000 thinner cause some damages on the plastic, and i leave it to dry thoroughly for a few days and completely wet sanded all the surfaces, and primed again with gray enamel paint. After this, vertical tail and upper fuselage was painted in Revell Gloss white. After drying and masking, rest will be sprayed with Aluminium/silver enamel.
  6. Well, Trencher, in seventies & eighties in my part of the world, both eastern and western kits are common on the toy stores shelves, VEB Plasticart, KP and even Frog-Novo from the east and Airfix , Revell and especially ESCI , 'cause ESCI boxes were printed in former Yugoslavia. But VEB Plasticart was first choice for beginners , and i enjoy this restoring work on IL-18 . All the main parts glued, filled and sanded, Coat of filler sprayed, and now, few days for the drying, before another fine sanding pass, and paintwork on the list.
  7. Just started restoring an old VEB Plasticart IL-18 model , for a friend, with idea to bring it to the AEROFLOT livery from 1964 , depicting a plane which sadly crashed near Belgrade , hitting the ground 600 feet below the peak of the Mount Avala , due the missed approach procedures in foggy weather. Passengers were Soviet WW II veterans traveling to Yugoslavia, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the liberation of Belgrade , including high ranked marshals and generals , like Marshal Sergey S. Biryuzov and General Vladimir I. Zhdanov https://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=19641019-0 http://serbianna.com/analysis/archives/3570 Aeroflot livery,IL-18V CCCP-75668 , from postcard Decals were prepared by Lift Here ( https://lifthereserbia.wordpress.com/ ) and printed on clear decal sheet, on home laser printer , sealed with clear cote. Originally , kit contents looks like this, And this model was in bits, ready to be restored, Windows were blanked with styrene sheets from inside, Fuselage halves glued and left to dry and filled with super glue and microbaloons & talcum powder, More to follow, Happy New modelling year
  8. Not exactly scale up, but parts layout are more or less similar , same plane, same disassemble logic.
  9. Thx, G2A Galeb (Gull) or J-21 Jastreb (Hawk) were never considered, there are rumours about research and initial work started on few other regional producers, so, i will stay out of these , for now. J-22 Orao was planned, even decals printed, but looks like IcarAeroDesign from Romania, works on this kit in 1/48 scale, and i was supposedly, late to the party. RGDS
  10. After four years of work, with multiple announcements and delays , Soko G-4 Super Galeb , 1/48 scale resin kit by AEROPOXY is finally ready. First kits will be presented at Belgrade model Show, "10th. New Year's Cup", december 16.-17. at Belgrade Aviation Museum. Hope it's well worth waiting for and kit will satisfy mr. Poloticni Komisar too.
  11. Tiger Moth to Fox Moth

    Dear Sir, Sorry to hear about your health issues , I hope you get well soon. Regarding drawings source you asked, DH 60 Gipsy Moth drawings are from June 1977 Model Builder Gipsy Moth article and Fox Moth drawings you mentioned are scan from KIWI resin kit instructions , downloaded from the internet , from old Aussie modeller Forum topic. Being small, (600 pix wide) i resize it in Corel and print it in 1/72 scale. Clear enough ?
  12. Tiger Moth to Fox Moth

    Sorry to hear this, could you reconsider this statement , after look at these photos , taken during scratch building the Fox Moth parts for Aeropoxy kit, way back in 2008. I'm not even aware of such the Fox Moth Vacformed kit existed , in time i do master parts. Hope you will accept my explanation. RGDS Nenad/Aeropoxy
  13. Difference is in center engine exhaust, without thrust reverse ( early) and with trust reverse (late). Also, engine nacelles are different, as well, some series have T-tail cone , some not. There are also some minor details, like antennas and hatches , differ from series to series, but not depicted in kit parts layout. Only these sprues are different in kit packing, Early Late RGDS Nenad
  14. It should be, its re-pop of YUMO, in different media (resin) with simplified sub-assemblies , some details improved and surfaces smoothed , new decal options (LiftHere/BOA), new MB MK10 seats , vac formed clearencies and die cut canopy frames & airbrushing masks.
