Reini78 posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - Aircraft#23/2016 The first of two new opponents is finished. Hasegawa kit with Techmod decals, Gunze and Tamiya acrylics except Azure from Model Master, Eduard seatbelts. The model shows an a/c of the Royal Egyptian Airforce that participated in the Arab-Israel war and was captured by Israeli troops in December 1948.
I picked up this long out of production single-seat 1/32nd MiG-29A cheap recently, and fancied doing a Polish version so also ordered a set of Decals from Techmod. I built this more or less out of the box, but did close the upper air intakes with plastic card, made some FOD guards for the exhausts and intakes, and added a seat belt set from Eduard, but kept the cockpit closed as it's fairly basic for this scale. Paints were from Xtracolour with varnish coming from Humbrol. I thought about coating it in gloss, as the Polish MiG-29s are very shiny and clean, but decided to do more of a satin coat for a better scale effect. The Revell kit is actually a MiG-29A version, but after doing a little research the differences between that and the G version very mainly internal so I could get away with it without too many problems. MiG-29G, Polish Air Force, 41st Tactical Fighter Squadron, Baltic Air Policing, 2012. With the new Trumpeter kit hitting the shelves, no doubt a few more of these will be sold off - hopefully I can snap another one up at some point. Tom
Reini78 posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - Aircraft#4/2016 In autumn 1944 a Hungarian fighterbomber group, the 102nd, was built up with former Ju87 and Ju88 pilots, filling two squadrons. In total they received about 78 used and new Fw190, mostly F-8 but also a few F-4 and G-8. It wasn´t easy for the pilots to transfer from the slow Stuka to the potent 190, so besides battle losses they also lost a/c and pilots in accidents. Nevertheless the Hungarian pilots had some success against the advancing Red Army but had to retreat more and more to the west. On March 27th 1945 the 102nd entered Austrian territory and was stationed in the area of Wiener Neustadt and flew sorties in the Vienna and St. Pölten area. On April 10th the flew their last combat sortie and retreated with the last 7 remaining aircraft to Upper-Austria where these a/c were destroyed on the ground on April 16-17th by strafing USAAF a/c. The Hungarian personal and their families then marched on foot to Pocking/Bavaria where they became POWs of the US Army. Hasegawa kit with Techmod decals, painted with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics, aerials with EZ Line. Model shows an a/c of 102/2 fighterbomber squadron. The book "Hungarian Fighter Colours" by Denes Bernad and György Punka was used as reference. and the whole MKHL gang together
