      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

  1. After a great deal of thinking about which of my (many) Soviet aircraft to build for this GB I decided to do something a little smaller than my current project, ICM's Mig-25, I have finally settled on Hobby Boss' Mil Mi-8. As the topic says you cannot build a straight Mi-8 T from the box despite what Hobby Boss say, you can build an Mi-8 MT/Mi-17 and the kit is nicely detailed and accurate for such, just not a straight Mi-8. The problem lies with the engine housing on the top of the fuselage, as that (as well as the tail rotor location) is the main difference between the 2, fortunately Pavla make a correction set so i will be using one of these. Here is the ubiquitous box top shot. And the contents. And the Pavla correction set. And a nice decal sheet from Begemot. And the scheme I have chosen. The black and white picture doesn't quite do it justice so here's a picture of one in the same scheme, sunglasses at the ready! I plan to do her on a similar small diorama, snow too! Well at least it's smaller than the Foxbat! Thanks for looking in. Craig.
  2. MiG-25RB Foxbat Cairo West 1971 ICM 1/48 Begemot Decals As pre-ordering a kit was a first for me , I had to immediately(ok, Christmas holidays were not possible) start it in the meantime it is also clear which version is in the kit see other BM threads for more info please.. I want to do a very early Foxbat, a Soviet Union operated one that actually saw action! not so many options here so I am going to build one I was inspired by the Arab MiGs book series by Harpia publishing on Foxbats operated in more or less secrecy over Sinai Israel/ Egypt by the Soviet Union. Tto gather intelligence and to test their new promising fancy Mach 2.8 equipment operationally, 4 planes (2 Rs and 2 RBs) were sent. They were operated initially with Egyptian markings! (that did not withstand the heat of prolonged super sonic flight well and had to be repainted often) Additional info and clearer photos are available in Yefim Gordon's MiG-25 book. Begemot Decals provide adequate markings , not that there is much of them though... some changes have to be made to the currently boxed sprues in order to build a very early R/ RB namly the intake lip has to be shortened and the para-brake housing changed. The nose provided is the correct one so here is what I got: parts to be modified: nice oob IP detail: and some clean up operations done : I am impressed so far!!! compared to my AMX Ghibli dwarf on the right: to be continued!
  3. My first entry into this excellent GB is one from the "other side" of the Iron Curtain and a very iconic Cold War beast it is, ICM's new 1/48 Mig-25 RBT. Now I have been watching a couple of excellent WIP's of this beast and it seems that OOTB it is more akin to the RB version, that suits me fine as both RB's and RBT's were used by GSFG during the 1970's. Equipped for very high speed bombing missions (it's where the "B" comes from in it's version) as well as the usual reconnaissance missions they formed a vital part of the the WARPAC military machine. An excellent overview of their operations can be found here; . This website is excellent for info and photo's of Soviet aircraft in Germany during the Cold War. Here are the ubiquitous box + contents pictures. The box. It's contents. And the only extras I have for it (so far!), the excellent decal sheets by Begemot. I was very tempted by the Bulgarian option but I don't think they started using them until the 80's, so Soviet it shall be. I'm not sure exactly when I shall start this as I'm in the middle of an F-16 for the STGB at the minute but I can't see me holding off for long. Craig.
  4. Here is something new. The Russian Begemot company has released a comprehensive decal sheet for the latest generation of Flanker family the Su-35S. The decal is for the 48th scale kits. Well OK we still have to wait for the plastic kits but as far as it is know they are on the way. Begemot has provided a full history of the Su-35S all the way from the first examples to the latest flying schemes. The biggest problem is how to make our choice, which aircraft would we want to build. The decal has 3 sheets, each 16 by 22.5 cm. The instruction sheet is 8 pages of A3 size sheets with one additional small sheet of side views. Printing is excellent just as we used to from the company. To ensure perfect register the “board numbers” are given as a separate base colour (the frame colour) and the different version of the numbers red, blue or some black examples. Not only the main numbers but the smaller tail numbers are also given in several sizes. Of course the Russian AF legends and the registration numbers which go with it are also catered for in different styles. Stencilling is provided for an aircraft which takes a full sheet but then again another sheet is crammed full of markings for the very wide range of weapons. I did not count them all but there are almost 400 individual decal styles inside this latest package from Begemot and since to some individual stencils, numbers, stars several or even a dozen decals apply this means that in all there are somewhere around 2 or 3 thousand markings are packed on to the sheets. It will be a lot of work to put them all on the kits! The decal is as up-to-date as possible. It has a small addendum sheet with details of the Su-35’s which took part in the Sirian conflict. Mission markings are included. The premier of the decal sheet will be this weekend at the Moson 2017 show. This is the first time it will be available for the modellers. Have fun with it! I would like to thank Kotey for the decal and wish him a perfect show at Moson. I am sure he will be more than glad to meet with modellers and exchange views on present past and future project. Best regards Gabor
  5. So I was dinking around with my stash and realized that over the years, I had accumulated a variety of MiG-29 and Su-27 kits. Part of the issue of not starting them was not having any idea which scheme to do, but now that I have so many kits and decals, I thought, why not do a bunch at once? Presenting.... THE MIG-29 SINGLE TYPE SOLO BUILD!!!! There would be no time limit on this, and no limit to how many I will do. I might even add more as I go along (eg when the new MiG-29SMT kit comes out). I might not even do them sequentially, as I would segway into other projects to avoid burning out. Anyway here's what I have for starters: Nothing is set in stone, but I will most likely build a MiG-29N out of the Trumpeter kit, an Indian bird out of one of the Italeri kits, an Iranian bird out of the one one top of the box, either a Bangledeshi or Burmese one out of the Airfix, with the possibility of getting one of the new redbox Airfix kits for those awesome Czech markings. For the Condor boxings, I'l thinking of a Ukrainian ground attack example for the 9-13 aka MiG-29S, and maybe converting the MiG-29SMT into the UPG, if I can figure out the external differences. Of course being a Russian bird, I'll need on in Russian markings, so that's what the Zvezda kit's for. I also have an eye out for the newer, upcoming Trumpeter and Zvezda kits. I haven't figured out what to do with the UB yet, I'll have to see what cool schemes there are out there. Finally, I will likely do one more as a what-if (Finnish or USAF Aggressor maybe?) Anyway I hope I can maintain some steam on this very ambitious project. I'm also hoping this might get some of you guys to do the same. Construction starts tonight!
  6. - The weather is quieter for a while so , the photos can be taken ib the openb at last -One of the main mistake of the Trumpeter kit is the bad shape of the rear fuselage. The first photo show the kit OOB This one is the real thing now the KZ About Begemot decals ,the Su 24 sheets are wonderful and I couldn't resist to the sharkmouth. The transfer is very large and so, difficult to settle around the nose gear well, door and nose both side probes. The instruction sheet says nothing about this . I've been obliged to resort on a hand painting job I cannot do better unforetunatly. notice the forgotten masking tape on the laser range finder and on landing lights; THe weathering is very heavy according to Begemot but Ididn't know to what extent I may have been heavy handed
  7. I won't make a big introduction this time, as this deadline will kill me. But I was thinking should I jump in or not? And here I am... I made one back in 2000 or something, as bort "43". Maybe I could dig a picture of it. Still not sure about bort number and weapons, but one thing is for sure: I HATE THIS NEW GREY CAMO !!! Basic Italeri mold + few scratches planned + Eduard PE + Pavla cockpit + AKAN paints I'm missing joysticks from Pavla - never got them Pictures are talking for themselves...
  8. Hi Folks! The latest product of my sick leave - 1/32 Revell MiG-29UB with Zactomodels upgrade set (3x more than the kit cost) and Eduard exterior PE. Finished in Xtracrylix with Begemot's amazing decal sheet. For info on using the Zacto set, the build thread is HERE Usual high quality pics taken outdoors in the dying sunlight.... Happy to answer any questions, comments etc. Al
