  1. In LSP there was recently long discussion on Tamiya P-38 which wasn't announced on Shizouka, so I advice to take rumours with a grain of salt
  2. Thanks very much guys! I thought more about famous Jokers smile from Batman movies and comics Unfotunately I have one photo from build: When i'm building model I always mix weathering from many photo sources, not 1 particular. There is second photo which is showing same aircraft, when order to repaint all planes spinners (maybe for recogition purposes) to red colour was executed
  3. Spitfire Vc from very modified Revell MK II kit with entirely new ammo covers and bubbles, Vokes filter and canopy from Hasegawa MK V. Master gun barrels, resin wheels from Halinski, bronze legs from Eduard, Eduard etch, Montex Masks. Lots of small corrections, cockpit was changed too. With older buddy:
  4. New Chaika from ICM, nice kit, fast to build. I made conversion to early type - with spinner similar to I-16 or I-15 Bis. I think that it is prettier than late - but it is only my opinion. It looks like a cartoon plane, from Mickey Mouse comic book . After doing photo session i got info that metal parts of plane were light grey, so i corrected it and first two photos are with this change.

  5. Hi, Dora from Hasegawa with few corrections. Fast to build, easy kit. Needs a little bit of fitting but nothing hard to deal with. Side inscription means: "Sell my clothes I'm going to heaven!". List of modifications: - pilot seat - added seatbelts and Yahu IP - modified gunsight - Quickboost exhausts - Eduard Bronze legs from Revell F-8 - gun barrels / pitot tube / bottom antenna from syringe needles - pilot motto - shortened tail wheel - wings crosses from Montex Masks WIP: https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=74576
  6. Fly Hurricane with Montex Masks. Plane flown by Bert Houle - Canadian Ace. Kit is unfortunately not a pleasant experience. I recommend it only to a Hurri fans.
  7. Thanks guys! Thx. I used Gunze H59 IJN Green, for bottom I mixed white with grey. Exactly, it was one of my fastest and most pleasant builds. I wonder why i didn't started it before.
  8. Hasegawa, manufacturer name is in tag section.
  9. Hi guys!. Japanese Thunderbolt from the box, only seatbelts and few cables added into cockpit. Superb kit, in terms of fit as excellent as Tamiya. I forgot to add antenna wire, but 15 minutes of work will fix that.
  10. First painting with Gunze Procon Boy PS-289. I had HS Silverline Solo before that.
  11. I bought this kit few years ago, before Eduard made their Limited Edition P-47 set, but i lost my appetite for this big fish . Now i have new airbrush from Gunze so it was a good time to check how it works. I used these additions for P-47: - Eduard resin wheels, - interior PE set, - RB model gun barrels, - Montex masks/decals
  12. Thanks guys! Yes, like every war. There is many lies about this topic, I personally think that Francos victory was better option than government of Stalins puppets and destruction of minds and industry like it was in Poland, where I live.
  13. After a long battle Fiat is finished. Markings are my own work + old masks and decals from other models. Work in progress topic: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=69719&hl= My Spanish collection - Cricket, Rata and Stuka. All beautiful in their own way :
  14. Thanks guys! I wanted to build P-40 with shark teeths but on one of the Polish forums is contest about 10th anniversary. Go ahead with yours! Yes, yellow and bronze works well together. Dzięki bardzo!
  15. P-40 from Trumpeter. I made few corrections and added things to cockpit and engine. Tail wheel bay is bulit from scratch. Decals (mainly) are from Techmod and gun barrels and pitot tube are from Master. Unfortunately i broke pitot tube ending. WIP thread was on LSP: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=69082 I forgot about gunsight, so i did one photo with it. It is on the end of this post.
  16. Hi! I made a fast diorama with new PZL P.7a from Arma Hobby. I bought overtrees kit and builded it without any additions except dampers tapes. Support is from wood, cloud is a painted rock, air streaks are from cotton swab soaked with CA glue and number 7 is made from plastic plate. Kit is nice but needs cleaning and puttying some plastic recesses. After that work everthing fits perfectly.
  17. Thanks very much guys! Thanks . I made my own mixtures. For green i used Tamiya XF-5 as a base with white and black, blue is Tamiya Sky Blue X-14 with white. Black is Tamiya Black and faded black/grey is black with RLM 66 and white. My reference were profiles on Massimo Tessitori site about russian planes. http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/mig3/mig3.html#colors
  18. Trumpeter MiG-3 with Part set, resin exhausts and Montex masks. Inscription on the side means "For the motherland". Nice kit with, surprisingly, no major errors. I improved few things like a propeller blades - awfully thick in the kit. As a support for photos I used old cigarette case from Soviet Union when Saint Petersburg was a Leningrad. For Poland where I live, it was a dark and hard time. May it never come back.
