  1. Thank you..! Hai trovato la foto di Bellgambi seduto nel cockpit dove si vede il "francobollo" verniciato al contrario? è a pagina 164 del libro "Caomouflage and Markings of ANR" di D'Amico e Valentini.
  2. Sorry for the delayed answer! On the wings I used the Patafix (or UHU Tac) technique... no freehand or cardboard masks.
  3. I've made some masks with my cutting plotter, one of this for the wings leading edge. I've applied it on the model using two or three little "balls" of Patafix.
  4. Thank you for the appreciations Dov. To apply the mottles I thinned the Gunze Sangyo (the acrylic version) paints at 80% with nitrocellulose thinner (I use a normal nitro thinner for the bricolage works, I buy it in my local hardware store), but if you have the Mr.Color Thinner you can use it. I setted the air pressure to 0,5/0.6 bar. The airbrush that I normally use is an Iwata HP-CH with 0.3 needle. If you have any other questions... I'm here!
  5. Good evening to all! this is my last work from the Eduard's Bf.109 G-6 kit (converted to G-14 standard - all the parts you need are already in the box). This particular Gustav was the personal aircraft of Maj. Mario Bellagambi of the Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana, during march 1945. Aftermarkets used: Brassin cockpit and wheels. Eduard PE set. Quickboost propeller and corrected spinner. STORMO! decals. Master guns & pitot. Fuselage/upper wings balkenkreuz and yellow 1 masked and painted with self made mask, camo painted with Gunze Sangyo paints. Hope you'll enjoy. Cheers from Rome! Valerio.

  6. Thank you all for the appreciations! Thank you Albert! I've seen many time your Tzefa, searching for infos and food for thought. Some others pics of the finished model. Thanks all again!

  7. Hello to all! After 11 months of work I can finally declared ended my last project: an israeli AH-1 Cobra (Tzefa). This is the old Revell/Monogram kit dated 1986 with a lot of scratchbuilt details. Some parts are made by 3D printing, others are home made turned brass (like the cannon's drum, the M-197 barrels are from Master). I also used the Isradecal conversion and decal set. The viper on both side of the model is painted, like dì the stars of David. The positive rivets come from the Archer transfer sets, the disco ball IR jammer from Fireball Modelworks. Painted with Tamiya, Gunze and AK Real color, washing made by oil colors. Hope you'll enjoy. Cheers from Rome! Valerio.

  8. Hi Mark...! 1) I've used a primer.. the Mr. Finishing Primer 1500 White Gunze. This is not the first time that I used it and I fell good with this product. I add Levelling Thinner Gunze at 80% so I can obtain an homogeneous surface... moreover this primer can be sanded with 1500/2000/3000 and 4000 grit papers to reach a very smooth finish. 2) The last pic is referred to the model still in construction (at that time I hadn't added the tailerons yet). Unfortunately that was the only moment where I could take a picture of the under surfaces... with canopies and VHF antenna on the top of vertical stabilizer it's impossible to turn the model.
  9. Good night to all, I'm glad to present my last work, a T-38 A Talon from Wolpack. I've built the kit OOB except for some scratchbuilt addictions in the cockpit (i.e. the separation glass of the central frame) and in the wheels/airbrakes bay. I also added the positive rivets from Archer on the exhausts zone. Pilot's name decal on the rear canopy taken from the Fundekals sheet. Hope you'll enjoy... take care and stay safe in this difficult moments. Cheers frome Rome. Valerio.

  10. The cockpit is based on the previous set for Hasegawa "adjusted" for Tamiya kit. It need a lot of work to fit inside the fuselage...
  11. Good evening to all! I'm glad to present my last work, the F-14 A Bu.No. 160390 that killed a Sukhoi-22 during the Gulf of Sidra incident of 1981. Tamiya kit with Aires cockpit (the best cockpit I've ever used as quality of details, the worst as difficulty to put it inside the fuselage) and exhausts, Brassin wheels, Kokopelli ladder, and Furball decals. Finished with Gunze and Alclad paints. Hope you enjoy.... cheers! Valerio from Rome, Italy.

  12. 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!
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
