  1. 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!
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Thank you for the kind words. I am glad you like the small Vulcan. Best Regards, Marek
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Such an interesting event it was! Plenty of small scale models (sorry for the amount of pics!), very nice meetings and brilliant (bright and spacious) venue. Once again a big Thank You to JBr Decals and Miniwing for possibility of having a joint-stand! Onto the pics (courtesy by lejgo_inc and myself). First a few views across the 144th scale contest table... ... and a glimpse of our ShelfOddity stand (with JBr's models on the horizon) : What exactly was on the contest and the club tables? A lot! First, two photos of the same F-14A: A super-detailed F-14D on one of a club stands: The newest Eduard 144th scale kit portfolio - MiG-15UTi in the livery present in the ticket-set... Its camouflaged colleague from East Germany: And an absolute gem - a Bulgarian machine (check the riveting!): Some more jets: Back to propeller era: A different kind of propeller: Of course passenger liners were displayed too: A lonely Tupolev... ...in the Boeing county: A tad smaller (1/200) but nevertheless interesting Lufthansa 737-200: The highlight of the displayed collections was this gathering of machines used in Czechoslovak/Czech AF: Best regards, Marek
  11. Hi all! We would like to present the models in 1/144 scale we have seen during different model shows. Let us start with Gatow event organised by IPMS Deutschland. The first weekend of September we had a really nice day of meetings with fellow modelers, looking at models and comparing them with their 1/1 scale counterparts exhibited in Berlin's Gatow Museum. Relaxed atmosphere, very friendly crew and brilliant surroundings – it is a place definitely worth coming back. Please find a couple images of models in our favourite scale (courtesy of lejgo_inc): Best regards, Marek
  12. Thank you Vincent! The Beverley photoetch is planned for SMW Telford. During E-day a few more new decal sets were shown, this time jets: F-15E in various markings: A rather special Skyray... ... and a few early Tomcats: Available soon! Regards, Marek
  13. Hello, Please see some new items prepared for coming E-day event - a propeller ones. A bunch of pitch-black Hurricanes... ... and a T'Bolts selection: In case the the markings are not enough we have a T'Bolt stenciles too: Available soon! Regards, Marek
  14. An utterly amazing build! If one takes the sheer size of 1/72nd scale Spruce Goose into account, the attention to the detail is simply amazing! Skin wrinkles, hollowed and thin-walled air intakes, perfect glazing, realistic lights and a perfect paint coat! A museum quality model, congratulations! The build process photos are also worth looking at! I second that! Regards, Marek
  15. Hello there, As we mentioned in our sub-forum header we like our aircraft models to be a bit unusual. Our preferred scale is 1/144 but with time we may ourselves wandering into other areas too. Our main scope of activity are decal and photo-etched sets. At some stage we have combined those two areas and we prepared sets of the most popular air-to-air missiles. The 700th scale items are tad more different but we will keep that for later on. We are based in Poland but our webstore and Facebook profile are available worldwide. Please take a look on our aviation products released so far... ...and stay tuned for more as we are in final stages of new sets preparation! Best, Marek
