  1. As far as I remember, Romania got 12 Ju-86 (E5 and E8) in 1944. The now defunct Romanian magazine Modelism had an article in one of its issues (no. 6/2004 according to a search I just did) with 3(?) photos of no. V. I think I have it, but I won`t have access to it for a good while. I`d expect there to be an entry in the Illustrated History of Romanian Aeronautics book, but, again, I can`t check right now. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235036577-illustrated-history-of-romanian-aeronautics-1909-1948-book-review/ In an old discussion from a Romanian forum, someone was of the opinion that the Ju-86 sporting the romanian roundels (i.e. post 23 August 1944), as no. V for example, would have been painted in the "Romanian" dark green: http://www.cartula.ro/forum/topic/1440-ju-86/page__view__findpost__p__21398 If that is true then it would probably mean a scheme similar to late Romanian IAR-80 machines. Try posting a thread here: http://www.cartula.ro/forum/forum/3-aviatie/ and ask about it. It`s a pretty obscure subject, but maybe others have studied it more in the meantime.
  2. Thank you very much! That is really helpful.
  3. Could someone tell me what the walkways on the wings of the PZL 23 are made of? Are they just a patch painted black/anthracite or are they actually a rubber surface? Also, what is that dark ring on the landing gear legs? Is it leather, rubber or just dark/black paint?
  4. Is there any further word on the re-release of the Henschel HS129B? I saw it mentioned on the first page of this thread.
  5. Where did you take the inspiration for that? Icaerodesign recommends RLM 64 afaik. EDIT: Ok, I now realize, yours is the build present on their site and in the magazine. Cool!
  6. That`s awesome! What paint did you use for the upperside?
  7. Congratulations, that`s a really nice model! Wish Hobby Boss would have released this in 1/72 scale too...
  8. Great looking model already! Also, thank you for this tutorial! It`s really helpful. May I ask, what are these two things? By the way, since you`ve used the Quinta interior, is there a reason for not using their vacuformed canopy too?
  9. Does anyone know if the grey paints used on the digital camouflage of the Ukrainian MiG-29 and Su-25 are identical?
  10. Any idea if the kit includes decals for the digital camouflage or masks for it? Also, does anyone have experience with ModelMaker decals? By the way, I know some Trumpeter jets (I have the Su-27 Flanker B ) have an issue with a crest along the canopy which does not seem that easy to remove. Is this one fine in this regard? Just wondering if I should plan ahead and look for a vacuform canopy.
  11. I think I am in the fortunate position to answer my own questions: - the Trumpeter kit is perfectly fine for a Ukrainian Su-27. Ken made a very nice one out of it: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234961613-flankeris-digitalis-su-27-in-digital-camouflage/ If only those Authentic Decals woud still be available.. - the reason of that kit combination I`ve exemplified above is the differences between the standard Su-27 and Su-27SM, which is well explained by Flankerman here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235022010-172-su-24-su-2733/&do=findComment&comment=2754946 Basically, if you start with a Su-27SM kit and want to make a standard Su-27, it`s easier to use some parts from a UB instead of scratch building them yourself. Are you talking about the Trumpeter kit?
  12. Thank you! I was not aware ICM has one with Ukrainian decal options. Hasegawa had a box(02166) for the digital camo too, but both seem hard to find now though. Failing these, the Trumpeter Flanker B would be ok, right? https://www.super-hobby.ro/products/Russian-Su-27-Flanker-B-Fighter.html The build I was refering to above is this (pictures are not appearing here no BM so I found it on another forum): http://www.cartula.ro/forum/topic/9911-ce-am-mai-facut-si-eu/page__st__100__p__236914#entry236914 Can`t figure out why that kit bashing was necessary. I was thinking that maybe because the Ukraining aircraft was upgraded, but maybe it`s because he started with a Su-27SM as a base?
  13. Could someone tell me what 1/72 kit would be best for recreating the Ukrainian Su-27 no.58 and what additions/modifications it would require (decals and camo aside)? I`ve seen someone here apparently combining elements from two kits to make this one and I`m wondering if he was restricted by what he had or if indeed, there is no straight out of the box option. Thank you! https://www.airliners.net/photo/Ukraine-Air-Force/Sukhoi-Su-27P/5093223/L?qsp=eJwtjUsOwjAMRK9SeQ0LQHzUHVwAFlzAciyIWpLIdgVR1btjInZPb0YzM1BOxh%2B718LQgzIKPWEFBQVfCv0MA9d3luAM0yAYU8TU6bTeHrv9yZuaxS7V04DGZyIuxuHvrxJYfhErtdGHn2wcWG6NYXdwH6KWEdsGG8YRluULk4gyiA%3D%3D https://www.airliners.net/photo/Ukraine-Air-Force/Sukhoi-Su-27P/5091705/L?qsp=eJwtjUsOwjAMRK9SeQ0LQHzUHVwAFlzAciyIWpLIdgVR1btjInZPb0YzM1BOxh%2B718LQgzIKPWEFBQVfCv0MA9d3luAM0yAYU8TU6bTeHrv9yZuaxS7V04DGZyIuxuHvrxJYfhErtdGHn2wcWG6NYXdwH6KWEdsGG8YRluULk4gyiA%3D%3D
  14. Great news! By the way, it should probably say 2022 (as opposed to 2021) in the first post.
  15. Awesome models! That`s exactly the P.11F I want to build. Could you please say what paints you`ve used and if there`s anything to watch for when assembling this kit?
