  5. 1/48 HobbyBoss MiG-31B/BM Foxhound

    Nice work. Making me want to get stuck into my AMK kit.
  6. Su-33, Kinetic 1/48

    Very nice!
  7. Cheers. Cotton buds and dampened kitchen roll.
  8. This kit looks fantastic, thanks for your posts Gabor! I'd love to see GWH do an MKI/MKM/MKA. Dave
  9. Productive day off work. Panel wash went on first thing: Off after about 30 minutes: I then set about adding the landing gear, ordnance, tail fins, seats and some antennae: I do like the look of a fully loaded Flanker! I've the canopy and windshield prepped so these will go on next, followed by the stabilisers and exhausts. More soon. Dave
  10. Decals on: FOD covers also added. All decals sealed in with a top coat of gloss. Will hopefully get the panel line wash on at the weekend. Also need to add some metallic variation to the cannon area and exhaust panels, but will do this with pastels and dry brushing once a flat coat is on. More soon. Dave
  11. Most likely an F/A-18E/F and/or an F-14 from me
  12. My builds this year

    Cheers folks.
  13. No updates as i've been away on a short trip, but found this picture this morning and thought it was superb: https://i2.wp.com/su-27flanker.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/11223951_10153873075824156_7562769714502036822_n.jpg
  14. My builds this year

    Hello all, Here is this years output, not too bad really! All 1/48 except for the diorama, which is 1/35. First up was Tamiya's wonderful F-14A, marked as BuNo 159610 of VF-32 'Swordsmen' in 1989: This was one of a pair of F-14s that downed 2 Libyan Mig-23s. The Tamiya kit is just superb, the best fitting 1/48 kit out there at the minute. Fightertown decals and some resin bits used. Hasegawa F-16D Block 52+, 343 Mira, Hellenic Air Force: Quite a lot of aftermarket used on this one -seats, exhaust, FOD cover, CFTs and RBF tags. The IRIS-T are from a Revell Eurofighter and the HARMs are from a Tamiya F-16. Kinetic F-16F, UAE Air Force, Inherent Resolve, 2015: OOB except for the seats and FOD cover. SAS & LRDG 'Desert Rendevous, Libya, 1942': Both old Tamiya kits with a lot of extra kit and some Masterbox figures thrown in. Hasegawa F/A-18E, VFA-31 'Tomcatters,' Inherent Resolve, 2017: Plenty of aftermarket on this one too - FOD covers, cockpit, decals and ECS pipes. Eduard Mig-21MF, Czech Air Force, 1998: OOB except for the seat and decals. GWH Mig-29AS, Slovakian Air Force: GWH base kit with a few parts and decals pinched from an Academy AS boxing to turn the GWH kit into the a Slovakian example. Eduard Mig-21BIS, Croatian Air Force: Had a major issue with the decals for this one. The majority of them broke up, so had to order a second sheet. As you can see, the square pattern is the wrong shade of grey. GWH Mig-29A, Hungarian Air Force: OOB except for the seat, FOD covers and decals. Revell F-15E, 89-0487, 335th FS, Inherent Resolve, 2016: Revell base kit with a lot of parts, including the ordnance, pinched from an Academy F-15E. Wanted a heavily weathered jet, so used a combination of washes, dry brushing etc to get this. Thanks for looking. Dave
