  1. This kit I found on the internet for a very reasonable price. As I am very fond of russian airliners I had to have this cute bird in my collection. There seems to be no manufacturer name on the box...or at least I cant't read it. It looks more like a advertising giveaway by Tupolev,same as the IL-96 kits by Ilyjushin,that were later re-released by Eastern Express. The quality of the kit is as poor as the IL-96 kits.The shape itself is quite accurate but the fit is terrible. As the landing gear parts were full of plastic residue,I decided to make a desktop like model,using the included display stand. I also bought a new and more detailded decal set from PAS Models to add more life to the kit.The included decal sheet was very basic and also the colors looked a bit off. After hours of filling and sanding and rescribing, I was finally able to get on some paint. Almost a year has passed since I started this kit but by facing all these fitting issues,I put it away several times and concentrated on other models. But finally here she is... The TU-334 first flew in 1999 and was planned as a replacement aircraft to the TU-134. Unfortunately ,only 2 prototypes were built and the aircraft never entered production. Thanks for looking

  12. Hello Everyone, I was going to add a ship into this goup build, but I couldn't find a ship I liked the look off. I did think about the Typhoon, but ruled it out. I was then going to get one of the Sovremenny class ships as I have been playing alot of WarGame Red Dragon the last few days, but haven't been bothered to get one yet, yeah I know I am lazy. So looking at my stash, and I noticed I have lots of Russian things in 1/144. I haven't seen any Bears yet, which I really find surprising! So I thought I would join in with that, nothing fancy, just getting the bugger done OOB too. So onto the pictures... I bought this a little while ago after I came back to the hobby, I'm pretty sure this was in an end of year sale for ModelZone. I've had it stored ever since then just waiting for an excuse to build it. Horizontal split for the fuselage, haven't seen that since the Airfix 1/72 Buccaneer I built when I was 8 I think? Was part of a Gulf War set with the Jaguar. Anyhow, this kit doesn't look like it has too many parts to it. Shouldn't take too long to build. Wing tops and engine pod things... not much to see here. It is really strange the part breakdown of this model... I even have the raised copyright notice on the wings, gonna have to get rid of that. Still not 100% sure what version to do, although I guess they are pratically the same with little changed here or there. If I get this one done in time (which I will be shocked if I don't) I will add something else from my 1/144 collection. More to come soon! Kind Regards, Dazz

    Hi Gents and Happy New year !! The last one of 2016 for a forecoming issue of Wingmasters. The Russian copy of the Concorde. All the best Pierre
  16. The first soviet all metal passenger plane More about the prototype: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tupolev_ANT-2 1/72 resin kit from AirKits The kit is supplied with nicely moulded engine from Prop&Jet Let's get started. Assembled the cabin and deepened the door on the port board. Also deepened one of the two semicircle pilot access steps, need to find a better way
  17. I have some massive plans for this GB so let's get started with RusAir Tu-104B offering This seems to be an easy way to put a replica of iconic soviet airliner on your shelf comparing to AModel Indeed - put together 6 parts and the plane is almost ready
  18. Hi guys, I've bitten the bullet as I'm pretty confident I'm going to finish my Yak-6M for the other GB so I'm getting on board with this one too. I have a few Tu-154's up in the loft and I've been itching to build one for some time, so this is the perfect excuse. Will be finished using 26Decals as Balkan Airlines, LZ-BTW.

  22. Greetings form French Riviera

    Hello, I'm Nicolas from Nice, France, and I'm really glad to be part of this excellent forum I've been following for years. I've been doing model kits during a few years, 20 years ago, and I restarted just a few month ago. From now, I own about 20 boxes including Trumpy 1/48 SU-15, Airfix 1/48 TSR2, AMK 1/48 MIG-31, Bilek 1/48 YAK-23, Italian Kits 1/48 Piaggio PC7, and so on..... but I didn't finish anything yet (so I'm just a box collector for the moment). :/ I'm mostly interested in 1/48 experimental, rare, early and cold war jets, especially Russian ones (Thanks AMK for this marvellous MIG31, I can't wait for 1/48 Tupolevs and Yaks, too bad Amodel makes only 1/72), AND Schneider Trophy Aircraft. Looking forward to reading you, cheers ! Nicolas
  23. So with my Vietnam GB Phantom finished I've waded into my next project. Recently I've been getting into Soviet aviation and combined it with my interest in Cold War Bombers with this Tu22, which I purchased on here about a month ago. I'm quite interested in the aircraft, which has got a futuristic, unusual look to it quite in contrast to earlier designs and so have decided to go ahead with it. I will be building it in the Soviet metallic finish (as opposed to the desert camo Libyan/Iraqi schemes which are in the Revell kit of the aircraft). Here's the kit and what I've done so far: Not sure why the word Bomber is in inverted commas: Unboxing: Decals a bit minimalist: So I made a start by assembling the wings and the tailfins: Required a fair bit of cleaning up where the mould attachments were on the leading edges but with clippers and a file you can hardly notice tailfins were a lot neater and the wings are nicely detailed- the sticking-out bits (to use the technical term) make it look a bit different to the usual more empty wings that you see. Lots of clamps used and some tamiya tape applied to the wing fuel tanks (I think they are) to keep them together while they're drying. Overall it's come together quite neatly though. I also assembled the cockpit which I will be painting in the Soviet cockpit green, and then primed it: The dashboards- not massively detailed but then again it's quite literally physically impossible to see when the aircraft is closed up as far as I can tell anyway (certainly in the case of the rear one): These will be black and I'll use some drybrushing and so on to bring out the dials, should look ok. I went out to buy some green paint for the cockpit today after doing this- it's not exactly a common color to have in your inventory. Now, back to it! -Flash (P.S. General 'The Legend' Melchett, famous bomber maestro, is as many of you know a great fan and expert of the Tu22 (why I don't know, it's a right ugly aircraft- JOKING!) so hopefully he'll be having a look at some point and if that doesn't put me under pressure I don't know what will)
