  1. Hello, I am looking for a scan or even a photo of plan included in the Mando Models GAL.61 1/72 resin kit. Recently I got the smaller version of this kit - an 1/144 offering from Anigrand - and would like to update it a little. Kind regards, Marek
  2. These are not our products but we had a small share in their creation. Two brand new items from Brengun: - F-Toys Tempest vacformed canopy - Sweet FM-2 vacformed canopy plus two older ones: - F-Toys F-106A vacformed canopy - F-Toys MiG-29 vacformed canopy Keep 'em coming! Best regards, Marek
  3. A new PE set has reached our shelves: a small fret with three FuG 200 antennaes used in various Luftwaffe aircraft. Available now! Best regards, Marek
  4. There are a couple of new sets available now – two decal sets ... One set is thought as an add-on to our previous Hurricane sets – stencilling in two colours for the day camo and night machines. The second set makes another installment of our F-47 saga - two colourful USAF and ANG Jugs. ... and three new turned brass items from Master: Pitots for the early versions of Canberra (for two planes)... ... and for a pair of Czech jet trainers – L-29 Delfin: and L-39 Albatros: Best regards, Marek
  5. Gday! Last weekend the Shelf Oddity team have spent in sunny Czech Republic attending the bi-annual Modell Brno event. Organized by Eduard gathered a vast quantity of small scale models and modellers from many countries. Beside the all-time favourites like Revell's F-14 or Eduard's Super 144 line kits there was a significant number of a bit more unusual built stuff like A-model, Dora Wings, Eastern Express, Mikromir, Minicraft... the real 144 galore! The panoramic shots can give a nice comparison of size and shape between the models. Please excuse the number of the pics but it was hard not to photograph too much... Also, we would like to thank and send warm greetings to all fellow modellers and small scale producers we have met and talked with during the event. It was a real pleasure! Now, enjoy the pics! (courtesy by lejgo_inc and myself). See you next time! Kind regards, Marek
  6. As the La-5 update set shown on the pictures above is already available we would like to present a sneak peek of one of our next releases: Mirage IIIC/E for the Mark I kit. Stay tuned!
  7. The Beverley has landed! The new set is finally available in our store. It is accompanied by the mixed-media La-5 update set (PE+decals with stencils) and by the generic FuG 220 antennaes serving various late WW2 Luftwaffe planes. A few pics: All the best, Marek
  8. Hi Vincent, Thank you for the query and for your patience! I have a good news - the sets are already produced and packed. Just the finishing steps with the manual left to do. Hopefully this or next week it will appear in our webstore. Beside of the Beverley sets an update for KP La-5 kits and German FuG220 set will also be available. Best regards, Marek
  9. Thank you for the kind words. I am glad you like the small Vulcan. Best Regards, Marek
  10. Hello, This is my rendition of the early Vulcan B2 XH556 depicted as in No.230 OCU Finningley, ca 1962. The pic of the original is shown below. The Pit-Road/GWH kit and excellent Fundekals decal set inspired me to tackle the Vulcan subject. To portray the early B2 airframe the kit had to be backdated a bit - the nose cone and a tail-tip antennaes as well as in-flight refuelling probe had to be removed. Hopefully the coming GWH Blue Steel release will make things easier. The by-product of this build is the ShelfOddity PE set. MrColor GX Cool White and GX100 Super Clear III lacquers, which allowed for easy surface polishing, made the painting a relatively straightforward task. Finally – a big thank you to Leszek lejgo_inc for taking the photos. The mind-boggling task of preparing the final pics was my share. Beginning of 1960s, RAF Finningley. Waiting for the sunrise. The overall view. The bottom side – airframe from 230 OCU depicted here just started getting dirty. A couple of details. Thanks for viewing and best regards, Marek
  11. Thank you gents! I think JB-2 was only slightly updated version of the original V1. Russians went a bit further with their 10Kh aircraft. Hope that Brengun someday will scale down to 1/144 their offering of Chelomey 16KhA in 1/48. Regards, Marek
  12. Hi, We would like to start this thread with a small quiz. Could you tell which kit is going to wear the brass shown below? Best regards, Marek
  13. Hi, A small blast from the past. The model represents JB-2 Loon, #902 belonging to the newly formed USAF, Alamogordo proving grounds (later Holloman AFB), New Mexico ca. 1948. The launcher with RATO bottles, front propeller, finer surface details and engine pipe plus its front support were scratch built. The wing was also repositioned - moved to the rear a little bit. It was my first approach to the glossy white paint (Gunze Sangyo C series) and it is a bit overdone. The panel lines (in fact welds) on the engine were drawn with very sharp pencil on matt Olive Drab paint and then the whole thing was weathered with artistic oils. First, a photo of the original airframe: Source: The Internet A few shots from production hall... ... and the final result: Enjoy! Marek
  14. Remaining two decals sets from the last batch are finally in store. Post-war Thunderbolts used by Imperial Iranian Air Force and Armee de l’Air. Plus seven new releases from Master: MiG-15/15bis, MiG-21SM/MF/bis, MiG-29, Mirage IIIC/5, F-5E (conical and shark nose) topped by Gloster Meteor. Details of the MiG-15 set... ... MiG-21 pitot tube including ultra thin 0.05 mm brass PE fret with pitot vanes... ... and a pitot tube for already announced Mirage IIIC/5 kit from Mark I. Available now at www.shelfoddity.com! Regards, Marek
