    Why no Tupolev SB-2 bomber in 1/48?

    Vedran thanks for the update. Looking forward to building one.
  2. Had no idea these were used by the Chinese. Very nice build.

    Peter thanks for the offer but my track record with vacform kits is pretty dismal. Sooner or later we’ll see one in injected plastic.

    Why no Tupolev SB-2 bomber in 1/48?

    Picked up the March issue of Scale Aviation Modeler today and was reading over the new kits (and repops) releases for this year. I can’t understand why the SB-2 hasn’t been kitted in 1/48 by Zvezda, Dora Wings or Special Hobby. Lots of appeal in SCW and Soviet markings. Great hardbound book came out a few years ago with lots of GA drawings and drawings from the period manual. I saw one kit on the web released by a Chinese firm a few years ago, perhaps a test shot, that apparently never got into production. Seems like a ‘no brainer’ for a former Eastern block kit company. Maybe be next year....?

    Airfix new Ju 87 B-1 in 1:48

    So...I told myself no more models until I reduce some of the backlog and shelf queens and was doing great until I saw your Stuka. I’m a sucker for SCW aircraft and your build is outstanding. Needless to say I now have an Airfix 1/48 Stuka coming my way. Thanks.

    Monogram 1/48 F-80C Shooting Star

    Beautiful work! I blew up the photos and didn’t spot any issues. I’ve not tried this method of doing a NMF so I have even more respect for your efforts.

    Lanchester Armoured Car

    After looking at this beautiful build I have a Lanchester coming tomorrow. Now painting the ICM AFS Ford Model T ambulance what a nice kit it is. Hopefully tackling the CSM car next.
  8. Excellent work as others have commented. I’ve got several SCW aircraft in the stash to build. I’m working on He51 and plan to to a SCW 109 next. Do you recall what brand and colors you used?

    Flashback Aviatik D.I 1/48

    I initially laid down the tan color and streaked on the green using oil paints and turpentine. This was sealed with a flat finish (probably Dullcote) and the used the Micron ink to replicate the numerous dot patterns. I’d work on the dots for a while and come back the following day and do more. Probably only took a couple hours. Although the ink is water proof it will smear if handled so another coat of Dullcote was airbrushed on to seal everything. It’s a shame this kit hasn’t been reissued as there’s lots of interesting color schemes for it.

    1/72 Airfix Wellington IC

    Very nice work, the colors look great. I see no reason for you to be critical with your efforts.
  11. Here's a Flashback I finished a few years ago. The color profile for this model is in the JaPo book on the Aviatik D.I & D.II page 98. The prototype photo is on 87. I used a Micron brown pen to add the numerous dot pattern and the sealed it an added the streaking.
  12. Beautiful model hard to believe it’s not 1/32 or larger!

    Modelling aids for the older modeller

    Bill I lost my eye sight in my right eye due to a detached retina and stopped modeling for 6-7 months. I finally bought a couple strong lamps to better see what I was working on. I still have issues with depth perception but just work slowly. At 67 I don’t waste my time on poorly designed models as poor fitting parts take the fun out of the hobby. Example was a C.A. Heinkle 112 that I binned after a couple evenings.

    Wonderful build, you don’t see many of these finished. Congratulations!
  15. Great build - very realistic finish. Congratulations!
