  11. My latest offering, built straight out of the box, this was a lovely little kit, not much filler needed at all. Well done Kovozavody Prostejov. I hope you all like it. Brush painted using Humbrol enamels, I am no good at doing camouflage with a brush sorry.
  12. To join the Cuban Mig-21s we already have in this GB I am going to add a Cuban Mig-23. I have had this KP kit in the stash for sometime and now seems like the right time to break it out. I understand this is a reboxing of the RV kits. I certainly hope so as I have ordered a Res-IM resin cockpit which I hope will fit. A few shots of the box and spures will follow shortly when Photobucket starts behaving. Dave

  20. Hello and thanks for your interest, here's another Lavochkin La-5FN from Kovozavody Prostejov. "Yellow 8" was flown by pilot P. Rakov in summer 1944 (according to kit instructions). I used photoetch parts (for dashboard, seatbelts and landing gear covers) from an old Extratech set. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel.
  21. Hello, here's my rendition of Kovozávody Prostejov's Piper L-4, dressed as General Patton's personal aircraft in France, 1944. Having recently built their new Mustang and Lavochkin La-5, I was suprised by the rough nature of this kit. It's a typical short-run affair with heavy sprue gates that extend onto the kit's parts, some oversized parts and poor fit, especially around the glasshouse and nose section. The wheels are a joke. They should be round - well, you know what wheels should look like. The items in the KoPro kit suffer from offset moulding and look horrible. Because of their relatively small size no replacements were found in my wheel spares, so I took the task of sanding them to shape as good as I could. The decals aren't the best either, they are relatively thick and have a strong carrier film that remained visible even after I've coated with Alclad Gloss. Plus, the Blue of the US Stars is too bright. Because of the small size on the fuselage, no replacements could be sourced from the decal spares box. To bring this kit up to modern standards you will need to invest a lot of time, effort and patience. I added the boarding steps from scratch. The model was painted with Mr.Hobby acrylics. I'm not very happy how this little model turned out, but on the other hand I'm grateful to KoPro for releasing a kit of this important military and civilian airplane. With best wishes from Vienna, have a good day! All pictures taken by Mr. Wolfgang Rabel of IGM Cars & Bikes.
  22. New 1/72nd LVG C.VI (?) kit in progress by Kovozávody Prostějov - ref.KPM7271 Source: https://www.facebook.com/kovop/photos/a.182240158636508.1073741828.182206638639860/480404745486713/?type=3&theater V.P.
  23. As this group build is a celebration of Edgar Brooks' life, and as there is still a month to go, I think I can squeeze in an early cannon Spitfire as I don't think anyone has built a Mk.Ib yet... The plastic is the same as the IIb kit I built earlier but with (obviously) different markings and different parts used for the underwing cannon bulges. Here is the box-art (excuse the shonky pictures please, it was pre-coffee very early this morning): The example shown on the front of the box is the one I shall be attempting to replicate. Here are the box contents: ... as noted above, the same as in all the boxings except the late Vb which has a slightly differently framed canopy. Therefore you can use this mask for the Ib, the IIb and the early Vb: So I'll make a start over the weekend... Cheers, Stew
  24. I never met Edgar Brooks nor corresponded with him directly but like many others on this forum and others I benefitted from his research and freely-given knowledge so I am glad of this opportunity to record my gratitude and honour his memory. I'll be building the new-tool Kovozavody Prostejov (KP from now on) Spitfire IIB: I'm not sure if I will build it as per the box or steal the underwing cannon bulges and transfers from the AZ models Mk.Ib: ... because I like one of the 92 Squadron options from that kit (with the black port wing underside) and am not particularly inspired by the KP markings choices - the KP ones (plus a third option shown on the front of the box): ... and the transfers: ... and the AZ Mk.Ib options: It's the top one I particularly like but for some reason the AZ kit itself does not really appeal, in fact it makes me think of hard work every time I look at the parts *shudder* - here are the AZ transfers - note the stencil set is identical for both: Incidentally I'm sure I have seen the new KP kit referred to as a re-box of the AZ Spitfire kits - I don't believe it is, although the tooling might have been done by AZ, the sprues are shown below - the AZ sprues are the upper set, the KP the lower set and the KP parts are noticeably more refined: I think from the look of the KP sprues you can build any cannon-armed Spitfire from a Mk.II up to a 'desertised' clipped-wing Mk.V - possibly a Mk.Ib too, but the underwing cannon-bulges on the AZ sprue do not match any parts on the KP sprues, though the KP does include a choice of two underwing bulges... however I cannot find a decent photo or drawing of the Mk.I cannon bulge so it is difficult to say if they represent the same parts; the KP ones are shorter and more kidney-shaped than the AZ ones. Here are the KP instructions and clear parts (including the gunsight): Finally, I will try to replace the kit parts with these: Like all the Master gun barrels they are so beautiful I get all teary-eyed just looking at them and can hardly bear the thought of using them on one of my models (I also have several packs of the .303s that I am saving for my Mythical Perfect Model) That's me then, sorry for the lengthy preamble and thanks for your patience if you are still reading Cheers, Stew
