  1. I have it in my stash and will do next year.... or maybe in two years.....
  2. Hi Guys, I would like to introduce my Great Wall Hobby P-61A. The kit is some kind of Mr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde... Some parts are great, some parts are not. You have to take your time when assembling, it´s ab bit tricky closing the fuselage. You can see my attempt doing this kit here: pk76scalemodeling.blogspot.com Please let me know your thoughts about my built. Cheers Peter
  3. Installed the landing gear this evening. You only need a little pressure and it's slipping in.
  4. Yepp... good question... This is something I will sort out tomorrow evening..... I´ll keep you posted..... Thank you! Great to hear you like it
  5. I am still working on it Hope to finish mine next week. Cheers Peter
  6. Closing the fuselage parts will be tricky - take your time! I really like your progress so far and will follow with interest. Peter
  7. Hi, I am doing currently also a GWH Black Widow. Be careful when closing the fuselage. You can see mine here: https://pk76scalemodeling.blogspot.com/2019/05/p-61a-virgin-widow-great-wall-hobby-148.html Cheers Peter P.S: It´s written in German, but I have a translation available
  8. Hello, built oob. Painted with Revell Auqa Color. cheers Peter
  9. I started painting the MIG, but have not jet decided which color scheme this bird will have. The dashboard looked nice after a coat of matt black. I was very happy with the result . Trumpeter made a nice gunsight, but I wanted to have a more detailed version. Evergreen made it easy to realize this part. The new gunsight was also painted in black, still have to add the glas and some wiring I painted the cockpit parts with a mid grey. First I have used the Russian blue/gray/whatever color but André told me, that I was wrong with my first
  10. Hi all, this is my new project. In my opinion it is a nice kit with good details. Maybe not 100% correct, but still good. You can have a closer look at the kit and some information about the real fighter in our "New kits in the cave"-Site. I decided to build this one out of the box. Only adding things I have like left over PE or bits found in my household. Starting the kit I started thinning the plastic in every opening or intake, Here is the already reworked part Looks much better than before, right? A lot of holes can be found
  11. Hi all, this is my P-51/D "Mustang" I always wanted to add this bird to my collection. I was looking for an unusually "stang" and found this "blue nose". Parts used for this model: Hasegawa P-51D True Details Cockpit Aires Wheel Bay Ultracast Porpeller Ultracast exhaust stacks Ultracast landing flaps If you want to see the built steps, please visit "Work in Progress" After all I have to say, the Hasegawa Kit is still a great kit but needs some help with the details Thanks for watching! Pete
  12. Started building the Cockpit. I used Quickboost seats cause of the great details they provide. Aires aftermarket cockpit would be a great choice, but I didn´t manage to get one. The Hobby Boss details ar not that bad, so I used the kits office..... A few weeks later the Hornet was done. I had some fit issues and in my opinion it is not a beginners kit. I used Revell Aqua Color for painting. For the red outlines on the landing gear doors I use a red Edding pen. Well... worked nice but I will use brush and paint the next time.
  13. Hi, really lovely work! A friend of mine made so pictures of the Beluga: The pictures were taken in Manching. Pete
  14. Hi all, A good friend made some incredible pictures from German Aircrafts in Neuburg and Manching.

  16. 25 years ago the airport "Franz-Josef-Strauß" opened near Munich. Since then, the airport has been expanded again and again. The airport is one of the most important German airports. He had a great influence on the city and the surrounding area. In order to celebrate this anniversary, the airport invited a large party. Altogether, four days were celebrated with current artists and musicians. There were also a number of aircraft to visit. Among the exhibits were a DC-6B, Catalina, Beech Electra, Puma, Ha-200, Li-2, Eurofighter Typhoon and the impressive A-400M. Please visit for more: Pete´s man
  17. Hi all, she´s done, hope you like it You can find more pictures and some information about the real plane in my Blog: Pete´s mancave All the best Pete
  18. Hi Guys, While working on my P-51´s I thought I need something different and I started to paint the superb Academy F-4 pilots. Looking thru my stash, my eyes spotted the nice looking T-38A from Trumpeter in 1/48. It took only a few seconds to check the fit of the two guys in the new cockpit. A new projekt was born! More pictures can be found here: http://petesmancave.blogspot.de/p/trumpeter-t-38a-talon.html Hope you like! Pete
  19. @Crossofiron1971 Great you like it, thank you very much, sir!
  20. Hi Guys, this is the second P-51 i startet in October 2016 for last Mustang Group Build... Here is the starting post: Accurate Miniatures P-51B I will finish the build log here. The P-51 in 1943 was a workhorse and much of the aircraft looked heavily worn. There was only a limited time between the next mission. I wanted to put this into a hopefully realistic way. I started with chipping the Cadillac with a sponge and a thin brush After that was done I started with the wheathering. I applied to individual panel filters made of oil paints...
