  1. Very nicely looking. I love red color in the technical units .
  2. Thanks for the comments. I am very pleased to be here. If only because of the fact that through contact with some members I can touch some great stories. Eternal glory to our grandfathers and great-grandfathers!
  3. Let me present to you the next model from my series of soviet aircraft of World War II. I consider it necessary to note that this aircraft (prototype I-200) was actually the brainchild of a talented air constructor Nikolay Polikarpov (not only Mikoyan and Gurevich). In 1939 Polikarpov was sent on a mission to Germany. In his absence, the plant manager Pavel Voronin and chief engineer P. Dementyev separated from the part of CB (Constructors Bureau) units and top designers (including Mikhail Gurevich), and organized a new experimental design department, and in fact - the new CB, under the leadership of Artem Mikoyan. Remarkable is also the fact that Artem Mikoyan agreed to become the head of the new Bureau only on condition that his deputy will be Mikhail I. Gurevich, who unlike Mikoyan, almost the only "advantage" which was consanguinity with Anastas Mikoyan, was indeed a competent professional designer. Kit from Hobby Boss is typical "easy kit" with very poor cabine detailing. But this kit is better at this moment among other MiG-3 in 1/72 scale. I had to mill the entire cabin and primitive imitation to acceptable thickness of wall less than 1 mm. Cabin made entirely of an additional set of resin parts from "Goffy Model". Also used rubber chassis from the "Elf" company. Shields chassis also is resin. Added wiring rack, re-did the pitot tube, rods chassis plates, indicators of the harvest, guns and exhaust pipes. I distinguished the landing flaps, hatch radiator. Dashed off a fairly long riveting. Wasted a lot of holes of air intakes. Antenna cable out of the nylon thread. Sliding canopy - squeezed again (because the native canopy has nonscale thickness). Landing light - is rhinestones. The navigation lights on the tail made from stretched clear sprue. Stabilizers of rockets (named “RS”) was made more thin. The prototype is selected from "air war" № 115. HB offers another aircraft of the same IAP and boring "white five" owned russian ace Alexander Pokryshkin. Colored with acrylic Tamiya, varnishes Tamiya X-21 and X-22. Washing with MIG. The numbers on the tail fin painted in black marker by hand. REFERENCES: 1. War in the Air 115 - MiG-3 2. MiG-3. The first high-altitude tactical fighter (Bear A. Khazanov, DB) 3.

  4. The idea of ​​an underwater aircraft carrier was born in the minds of the Imperial Japanese Naval Staff in a few months after the war in the Pacific. Postpoit suggests the submarine, surpassing all created before - especially for transport and launch strike aircraft. The flotilla of submarines was to cross the Pacific, just before the select to launch their planes, and then plunge under water. After aircraft attack they had to go to a meeting with aircraft carriers, submarines, and then depending on the weather conditions dri rescue crews. After this fleet again submerged. For more psychological effect, and the eccentricity was placed above the physical hold harmless, method of delivery of aircraft to the goal should not have been disclosed. Model gathered in one spirit. This is purely tamiya model without repacking. Minimum filling, assembly very easy - russian saying "clicked on." Of improvements only antenna cable. Despite the fact that the plane was experimental, it seemed boring to model museum. Decided to "kill" the Japanese in the extreme.
  5. I made the metal surface by chemical from Alclad. And the decals are solid with sheets on the wing and pieces on the fuselage .
  6. Let me tell you the small secret - this is not camo, this decal! Fine Molds gives several such models with ready camouflage. You need only to carefully weld them to the surface. I used Tamiya Mark Fit for this.
  7. Many thanks for your comments. I forgot to remove scotch with viewing windows! What about hanging bombs - all perfectly true - I'm little frivolous approached this issue. I came here to learn how to do correctly. 2 years I studied with russian modelers, now I moved on to a higher level, I hope)). Thanks again for taking the time to comment. This is photos with "chiping"
  8. Hello, colleagues! In assembling this kit as a whole does not present any problems. Very "for amateur" deep seam panels and the same riveting - so washing was abandoned altogether. No aftermarket was used (in the set have a terrible photoetched details). The machine guns was slightly refined, made braces and antenna cable from the nylon thread. After attaching decals mismatch width tricolor on the tail - had to inflate his own top deck. Ground off all the edges are separated petals skirt hood. Navigation lights made from transparent color plastic. Added straps for traction flaps, belts on the chair from tamiya tape and wires (native etched details likes a railway sleeper rather than belts). Metallic paints - Alclad and Model Master. In set color scheme mess as always. Italy offers FS 36118 and FS34096. And when you look even b/w photos - in contrast shows that the standard scheme is stupid. Through long survey, I was painted upper surfaces with Revell 32174 and 36145. To achieve the desired contrast - adjust them accordingly under the FS 36118 and 34159 Dark SeaGrey Light Slate Grey (not dark). For authenticity, naturally, I can not guarantee - that's my vision. Lacquers - Pledge Futura and Tikurilla. Exhaust - Alclad. I did chipped on the band of engines. But it was a mistake. I've fixed it, but I did not made the new photos. References: 1.

  9. Hello, colleagues. I present to you my latest model. I have not any problems with assembly. I used the set of etched parts from Eduard intended for a similar model from “Dragon”. I must say, the set came in like a glove, very little has been reduced in the cabin section and cut a pair of projections. Plastic was hard, like Hasegawa’s plastic. I'd add the antenna cable from nylon thread, wing lights from colored plastic and hydro supply to the chassis from copper wire. Drilled shafts of machine guns on the hood. Colored with Alclad and Tamiya. Lacquers – Pledge Futura and Tikurilla.
