    Vulcan B2 - 1/144 GWH+Shelf Oddity

    Thank you for the kind words. I am glad you like the small Vulcan. Best Regards, Marek
  2. 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

    JB-2 Loon - 1/144 OWL Resin

    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

    The preview of the new projects

    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
  5. 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

    Gatow Model Show 2018

    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

    Hughes H-4 Hercules 1/72

    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
  12. 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

    German Type XVII B submarine 1/350 Mikro mir

    Just a small suggestion - there is no U-boat type XXIII in 350th scale on the market. AFAIK only this and types X ('cruiser') and XVI ('milk cow') are missing from WW2 U-boat portfolio. The documentation is widely available - would you consider preparing such kit by any chance? Regards, Marek

    Speaking of 144th scale RAF D-type roundels decals - Mark I comes to the rescue. Avialiable also at Hannants. Regards, Marek
