  1. Hello to All Some little steps - I have slightly improved the side walls of the cockpit, just the bare minimum: some hydraulic pipes, some electric cables, internal lights and a lever that is placed in front of control panel, this area is all black with gray drybrushing. The engines areas are in aluminum at the front and gun metal in the back, same thing for the inner covers - Here the cockpit: I just added hydraulic pipes, seat belts and painted buttons and switches; I'm not very happy of result, but I can assure you that as a short run it is annoying to set up and detail Se you soon Ettore
  2. I'll be back soon guys, I've been visiting my mother in Sicily, and many more work commitments ............ but don't abandon the Fouga Magister Ettore
  3. Hello Wez You're right, because one of my old photofiles of a Fouga Magister CM 170,and not 175, had the seats as you say: dark bakelite color structure and black padding, but another airplane seen by me in Italy had black seats and padding. A French modeller in the Wing Master magazine made them black with reddish brown padding, and this is not wrong; so as you can see, you're not wrong if you choose between these three combinations Ettore ..................
  4. Goodmornig to All Finally I start this GB - First step I had separate the cockpit pieces and I added some electrical cables behind control panels - Later, I sprayed black, H77 Gunze, and glossy white only on oxigen bombs This afternoon I hope to do a light grey dry brushing into the cockpit; I have also prepared, with a gray primer, the area of the engine and exhaust vents; these will have two shades of metallic color ......... but unfortunately you will not see anything from the outside Ok for this morning is all, the shower aspect me ! Ettore
  5. Yes, it's true! It is necessary to do it very calmly and to construct some small pieces that easily break, the belts not present will be taken by a French D.H. Vampire. Ettore

    Hello RoB and welcome back I wait a your signal , a small summary: Goodmorning To All I have Just two little questions: - An Aero L-29 trainer (Eduard 1/48 weekend kit) in Tiger meet version is eligible? -........or an Aero L-39 trainer-attack( 1/48 Special Hobby kit) in Thay color is also possible ? Thanks Ettore @Ettore The Tiger Meet L-29 is a bit of a difficulty- I'm inclined to allow it given that it was a trainer/light attack type in a fighter squadron, so was most likely used as just a trainer (and Tiger Sqns tend to take 2 seaters with them to Meets if they can), but I'll have to try deeper research when I'm home from work; chasing esoterica such as this on a phone is a problem. I'll give you a definitive answer late in the week. The Thai L-39 is OK as long as you build the 101 Sqn example (at this point). 101 is their Aviation Academy, 401 is Light Ground Attack and 411 is Fighter. The L-39 is the only type that both the other squadrons seem to operate, so I can only surmise that that's what they're used for. Again, I'll dig deeper when I'm home, but 101 Sqn is definitely OK. I'm a fan of the L-39 and love the Thai colours, I may have to get one for myself! If you have more information that you can link me to to support either of your choices, it would aid me considerably! Hello Rob I read both notices; the L-39 Thay is of 101 Sq. passed at 401 and marks are of this last squadron. But are eligible an Algerian and a czech airplane. L-29 Tiger meet airplane is at limit, but the slovak is good. If you have time, you can read the notices on Eduard web site..... I have also a third option: a Fouga Magister CM 170 Zephir 1/72 Special Hobby kit; this machine was used to training pilots to landing French carriers Ettore first choice L-29 Tiger meet, is always a plane born as a trainer second choice a Slovak L-29 third choice a CM170 Fouga Magister I wait Ettore .................
