  1. Thank you. This was my first kit with a vacuform canopy. I glued plastic strips inside the canopy to recreate the framing. When the glue dried (ca) I used the strips as a guide to cut the clear plastic. René
  2. Hi all. Today I'd like to show another recently finished model. This time it's the Azur 1/48 Latecoere 298 floatplane. The trolley is a resin kit made by Sinifer. The fit of the kit if quite good but the struts are a flimsy. I had to put brass pins on the ends of them to to make a solid construction.. I used Gunze Aqueous paints over Alclad black primer. Weathering was done with Abteilung oil paint and pastel powders. On the trolley I used real wooden strips instead of painting the molded planks. Thank you for watching.
  3. Hi all. I recently finished the long awaited F-14D by AMK. It is a lovely kit with loads of oprions. The model was built straight from the box, apart from a Master pitot tube. Alclad black primer and Gunze Aqueous paints were used to finish the model and Abteilung oil paint for weathering. The decals and weapons used are included in the kit. Thank you for watching.
  4. If you search for Su-25UTG, images, you will see the photo of the original aircraft. The Red star and Bort numbers are quite bright compared to the faded paint. René
  5. Hi all. I recently finished KP's 1/48 Su-25UTG in the colours of the Russian Navy. On the internet I found photos of real aircraft with very faded paint on it. This is what I tried to reproduce. The resin cockpit is from SBS and I added extra panel lines, rivets and numerous scratch built details. I used Akan paints but all colours were mixed to match those on the photos. Weathering was done with Abteilung oil paints. Thank you for watching.
  6. Simply stunning. Nothing more to add.
  7. Thank you. Yes, it is a great kit. The engineering an detailing is amazing.
  8. Hi all. I recently finished AMK's fantastic MiG-31 kit. The detail and fit is incredible but I also used the Eduard pe set for extra details in the cockpit and inside the engines. The landing gear was detailed with 0,2mm brass rod to simulate hydraulic piping. As usual, I painted the model with Gunze Aqueous paints over a black primer from Alclad. Weathering was done with Abteilung oil paint and Tamiya panel liner. Thank you for watching. René.
  9. Oh yes. I started with the Monogram a while ago, rescribing, adding new rivets and semi scratch building the cockpit. But I think I will go for this set now. René
  10. Oh man. You have no idea how happy you would make many modelers around the world if you would start producing all those little gems of yours. again René
  11. Thank you for your nice comments Neil. Too bad the Paragon products are not manufactured anymore. I used the wingfold set for the Academy F-111 and the B-26K Counter Invader conversion set. Both are great sets and fit perfectly. There must be thousands of sets lying around gathering dust never to be put onto a kit. Such a shame. There are just too many collectors and too few model builders inmy opinion. René
  12. Hi all. My latest build is the Special Hobby 1/48 T-2E Buckeye. I choose the Greek Air Force camouflaged version. Especially the red and white striped rudder and tip tanks look very good in combination with the camouflage colors imo. Lots of rivets and panel lines were added. The model was painted with Gunze Aqueous paints over Alclad black primer. Thank you for watching. René
  13. Hi all. Today I'd like to show my recently finished Airfix Lynx. The kit is very nice with great details and fit. Only the windscreen needs some attention to make it fit properly. Eduard's photo-etch sets were used and some scratch built details. The model was painted with Gunze Aqeous paints over Alclad black primer. Thanks for watching.
