  1. Thank you Lolo! Hoping to not break the forum rules, this is the link to the complete WIP of my 326 - CLICK! You can find all of my works here! or on our FORUM (sorry but Modeling Time is in italian language). Hope you will enjoy!
  2. I didn't know that Red Roo makes aftermarket for the 326.... maybe OzMods? I purchased the wing flaps from OzMods... and the quality is very poor. For this reason I choosen to made it from scratch... MB.326-22 by Valerio, su Flickr Beautiful aircraft the SF-260... the Ferrari of General Aviation! Is this the Planet Model kit?
  3. Thank you so much for you kindly comments!! The jet pipe is an Evergreen Tube (item #230) that has 7,9 mm of diameter. Inside the pipe I added the four thermocouples (made with copper wire) and the exhaust trimmers (made with plasticard). Inside an half of fuselage I added two main ribs: the left serves to block the long jet pipe. MB.326-51 by Valerio, su Flickr MB.326-50 by Valerio, su Flickr To reproduce the conical fuselage fairing of the exhaust I used a complex process: I cut a piece of plasticard sheet of 0,2 mm thickness and I've "crumpled up"it to obtain a conical shape. Then I fixed it onto the second rib using so much cicyanoacryliclic glue... outside the cone I added a palsticard stripe to reinforce the structure. At this point I glued the fuselage together with the new "plasticard cone".... and I used sandpaper 600, 800, 1000 and 1500 to obtain a "perfect" conical shape of the piece. Also cyano glue and Milliput were needed to complete the work!

Using a thermic gun I flattened the intake duct leading edge to obtain an "oval" shape... then, with the same gun, I curved the piece. The new ducts has been glued into the wings with cyanoacrylic glue.... and grinded with an electric mini drill to reach the right thickness of leading edges.

  4. Good night to all! I'm back with my last work, an Aermacchi MB-326 G from the old ESCI (now Italeri) kit in 1/48 scale. The only two aftermarkets that I used are the Neomega cockpit (very poor and inaccurate)... and the 300 litres fuel tanks from SkyModels.

  5. Thank you all for the appreciations! Sure! I can send you the cutting file. Send me a PM!
  6. Good morning to all! I'm glad to present my last work... a restoration of an old Hasegawa A-4 that I built ten years ago. I decided to put it back to workbench due to the "crack" of the fuselage: 21616109_10210113589216277_2086911637920727775_n by valerio, su Flickr While I was at it, I scratchbuilt a new UHF dorsal hump (the one in the Hasegawa kit is wrong in dimensions and shape) using the cutting plotter: A-4SU Restoration_11 by valerio, su Flickr A-4SU Restoration_10 by valerio, su Flickr There was other details to fix, like a small naca intake on the main right engine intake, but the model was almost assembled and was very difficul to add this new parts. This is the final result! the decals are from Miliverse - many thanks to Mark (the owner) for his advice and pics!

Cheers from Rome, Italy.
  7. Quoting Toniosky, more or less 2 mm to high. Pay attention to the main landing gear, you also have to "trim" it to obtain the correct balance.
  8. Thank you again to all! Exactly! I modified the angle of front landing gear fork.... a recognised problem of the Eduard kit. Mirage III - 78 by valerio, su Flickr Mirage III - 96 by valerio, su Flickr Hi Habu! I'm not agree... looking at the pictures ot the Mirage 259, I never seen a dirt or weatherd aircraft. For example: Thanks to G.Antìc e G.Kuntz for the images. I chooed the Semi Gloss Mr.Paint... but looking at the pictures, I should have done it chrome!
  9. Thank you to all for your appreciations! it's always a pleasure taking so much compliments.

  10. Good night to all! here the last birth directly from my workbench... an israeli Mirage III CJ! Base kit is the Eduard, but I used the resin set for cockpit and wheel bays from SBM. Other details are from Eduard photoetched set, pitot from Master. For the natural metal finish I used the Aclad Lacquers and Mr.Paint semi gloss for the final coat. The decals are a mix from the kit and Isradecal set. Hope you'll enjoy. Cheers from Rome, Italy!

  11. Hi Richard! exactly, the decal sheet is provided in the box. Printed by Cartograf. The decals are very big but has a good quality and good adhesion. If you use the Mr.Mark Softer liquid (not the Microscale) you can reach a superb "painted on" effect!
  12. Good evening to all! I'm back with my last work... an Italeri Tornado IDS with a very special livery to celebrate the 60th birthday of 311° Gruppo - Reparto Sperimentale Volo. The model is OOB with the only add of the True Details ejection seats and the Master pitot tube & AOA. Hope you enjoy!
