  1. Well, after some problems I couldn't leave behind, I made a slight progress by trying to do something with that tank. So, is this acceptable, or should I paint it again?
  2. Thanks Usman! I am struggling a bit with tanks, to be honest. What can I use for steaking? Did those tanks had any streaking at the desert? Also, did dust or mud stayed between track links or on the hull? I mean, in thedesert there is no rain, so what can I do to weather it?
  3. I painted the kit with Gunze H313.
  4. Hellenic Air Force A-7E

    Hellenic Air Force had both types. The difference is that the H type didn't have the air refuelling capability. Also when the H type arrived in Hellas, the camo at the fuselage went all the way down. It didn't stop at one point where the Light Grey starts, as at the E type.
  5. I was very disappointed with the value for money for this kit. The colour and the detail of the turret looks like it's made from an other company. Eastern Express or Heller! Actually, I think it is. The turret is from AMX-13. So if a company has already produced an AMX-13, then Dragon might have taken the sprues for this turret. The DS tracks are longer and I had to cut away one track link and it still looks if I must cut another one. I will see after painting. In my opinion, this kit should cost about 40 euros the most. My first Dragon kit was a Panther G with zimmerit, which is a whole lot better than this Sherman and costs 60 euros. Next time I'll wait for a proper review...
  6. It's the new Sherman kit from Dragon. Simple and cheap (I think) kit, with one-piece DS tracks and not in individual pieces. The detail is very good. The Egyptian Shermans were the M4A4 type with the diesel engine of A2 and the French FL-10 turret with autoloader. If I remember well, they were all destroyed in the Six Day war. I have started building it. It looks very easy to build.
  7. Oh I forgot! In about 5 months a second baby will come! If it is a boy, then a PRU Blue Spitfire will take its place on the shelf!
  8. Trumpeter 1/48 MiG-19PM Farmer E

    Nice effort with the reshaping. I would leave the nose as is in my kit, if I ever get a MiG-19 from Trumpeter. I have the HiPM kit of Shenyang J-6/F-6 to built a plane from Indo-Pakistani war.
  9. HobbyBoss 1/48 F-14D

    Very nice work at the intakes! As for the Millenium Falcon, I think you are right!
  10. RAF Grumman Tomcat FGR 1

    A desert pink Tomcat! Great idea! Is that 1/48?
  11. Never stop building Spits! When my daughter was born, I built a pink PR.MkIG. Then I built a Mk.IX flown by John A. Plagis and in my stash there are a Mk.Vb of Steve Pisanos and a Mk.Vc of a Greek pilot, George Plionis!
  12. Stuka

    Lovely work! The preshading was done with black and white paint?
  13. 1/48 Airfix P-51D Mustang

    I really like the interior. But I think that you have overdone the drybrushing at the black area behind the seat. I have the ICM kit and I see that Airfix has done a very nice job!
  14. MiG-25RBF, ICM 1/48

    I bought AKAN lacquer 63024. It's a dark green. I will mask number 20 and some stencils with liquid mask, in order to repaint the grey. From the repaint job I will lose some stencils, but I don't care. I will also lose the stars, but I already have replacements.
  15. Su-33, Kinetic 1/48

    It's longer than the MiG-25!!!
