  1. No, they will switch now to a complete different airframe, to be announced at Nürnberg fairs...
  2. Thanks everyone for comments! Natter: glad you like the book, many thanks for kind feedback! Cheers Libor
  3. Hi folks, this is the Vautour IIN no.67 nicknamed "Cyclon" built in his late-carrier guise. The Azur kit is quite complex with lot of filling and trial fitting, but I enjoyed it anyway as the result is an unique monster within my collection. Built out of the box with addition of Kora resin drop tanks (I guess Special Hobby includes them now as well). Painted with Gunze Aqueous as per instructions. Cheers Libor
  4. Thank you gents! Cheers Libor
  5. Thanks chaps, appreciated, glad you like them. Cheers! Libor
  6. Hi folks, my modelling output last year in pictures, 20 pcs in total. All in 1/72 scale:-) Cheers Libor
  7. Cheers gents! The canopies actually required carefull fitting and also some filling around them, so they needed to be restored with fine polishing and a coat of Future. Steve: no problem Steve, just let me know when needed, I may have more on this topic. Best wishes for 2017 to everyone! Libor
  8. Thanks chaps, glad you like them! Mike: got it to the stock recently, but it will follow later on... Done with Fokkers for the time being:-) Cheers Libor
  9. Hello fellow modellers, this is a couple of Finnish D.XXI's of the Wasp Junior powered 4th version, built with earlier slot-less (FR-125) and later slotted wing (FR-129). The Special Hobby kit needed some extra work to adress too short cowling, which was extended by 1.5mm thick strip and the fabric on the landing flaps was sanded down as these were all-metal. Otherwise, pretty nice build with just few adders here and there, especially around the engine and in the cokcpit. The FR-125 markings for 2/LLV 30 machine depicting it in early July 1941 as flown by T.Mattila came from the box, while the markings for FR-129 representing mount of the most succesfull pilot of the Wasp powered D.XXI , V.Karu (6 kills), was assembled of decals coming from Stratus book on Finish AF, and partially from the kit. Public thanks must go to Kari Stenman for his invaluable help with the markings of the latter kit. Cheers Libor
  10. Thanks chaps once again for kind comments! Darren: just give it a go, at least you'll have the most expensive Sufa in the world:-) Cheers Libor
  11. Thanks everyone for comments! 128fiddler: that's correct. the shape of the cooling intake should be vertical, but the Litening is placed on correct place (right side). Hasegawa set seems to be either incorrect or it is a different version of the pod. Cheers, Libor
  12. Hi fellow modellers, that's my take on the IAF Sufa built from Hasegawa kit. As the base kit is rather ascetic as far as the underwing stores go, I went for Skunkmodels Workshop IAF Weapons set which sourced out the Pythons 4 and Delillah 2. The Litening II and Lantirn pods came from Hasegawa weapon set no.12, while the AIM-120's and fuel tanks are from the kit. The kit was further enhanced with Aires inlet ducting, wheel bays, the exhaust pipe and Eduard Zoom etched. All in all not a cheap affair, but I enjoyed the build as the kit went together without problems. It was painted with Gunze acrylics as per instructions except light green which is applicable for older IAF types like F-4 or Vautour. The actual shade should be more pale, so I went for slightly darkened H74 Sky instead. The plane depicts one of the "The Negev" squadron machines. Be warned tough, being not a hopeless IAF nut I may have missed some features, so please excuse my ignorance:-) Cheers Libor
  13. Thanks guys, glad you still like her, it is almost a year it has been posted. Hello BM, I'm sorry I haven't properly recorder this build, it was a sort of quick build over short vacation period. I remember I did not follow the instructions, because that particular brown colour was introduced later, so I went for my own mix using Gunze H66 and H310, plus possibly few drops of other browns to match the photos. Unfortunately, don't remember the exact mixing ratio... Cheers Libor
  14. Let me show it on a picture from the other build: the pigment thinned with Pigment Fixer loaded on the brush is splashed on the surface using the airflow from the airbrush. Cheers Libor
  15. Thanks chaps, glad you like them! Jerzy_Wojtek: pozdrawiam, yes, Mörkö is in the pipeline too, hopefully not at so distant future... AndrewCJ50: The greens are H405/H74 for MS.410/406, respectively. The "hair spray" technique is correct, although I used that AK fluid instead of my wife's hair spray can:-) Cheers Libor
