    Dassault Super Mirage 4000

    Once again, thank you! Glad you like her!

    Dassault Super Mirage 4000

    Thank you guys! Unfortunately it does - the open display at Paris museum doesn't do it much justice.

    Dassault Super Mirage 4000

    Thank you guys! The red chevrons are painted, the blue ones are decals. Well, they are short-run technology, so some additional work is required. The only real problem I had was when I wanted to close the canopy, it wouldn't fit - in the end I had to cut the whole avionics bay out of the model and shorten the behind the seat ledge... everything else was quite standard - a smear of putty here and there, nothing drastic. Yeah it looks to me like a cross between 2000 and Rafale with a Mirage IV tail. Wow, I'm a bit envious for that. I remember a VHS tapes my dad bought me in the late '80s and there was some airshow footage on there, including the Mirage 4000 performance. So this was in a way a childhood memory build.
  4. Hi everyone! I've finally finished Modelsvit's 1:72 Mirage 4000.
  5. Thank you, guys!
  6. Here she is finished! The brand new Eduard 1:72 MiG-21MF 'Fishbed-J' kit.

    Yak-130 'Mitten'; Zvezda 1:72

    Thank you! KittyHawk will release it, probably sometime this year, in 1:48 scale. Thanks Terry. Regarding the MDC line. It was the first time for me painting it. Actually I almost ruined the canopy on my first try and had to polish it and dip in Future to regain clarity. In the end, I used photoetched piece from ModelDesign PE fret, which dissapointed me on the oversized parts for the cockpit, but worked here... It was still a chore to get it bent, though.

  11. Hi everyone! Here's my first finished build of 2018. Yeah, I'd normally have 3 or 4 finished by now, but life got in a way a bit You can find the full article and photogallery at my modelling blog.
  12. Hehe Ken, was it Santa or Ded Moroz? Got the kit today as well - will start on her right after I finish Yak-130

    Sukhoi Su-17M3 'Fitter-H'

    Yes unfortunately he's more or less the only choice on Soviet/Russian aviation subjects in English language. I am not aware of any other Fitter books, though there might be some in Russian language.

    Sukhoi Su-17M3 'Fitter-H'

    Thanks, guys! Glad you like her! Martin, Mr.Gordon made quite a few mistakes in this book, including with the short paragraph on the Azeri Fitter. Colours are way off in that pic as well.

    Sukhoi Su-17M3 'Fitter-H'

    Thank you, guys! You can see the step-by-step photos, including the 23-piece ejection seat here: https://vvsmodelling.com/2017/12/06/modelsvit-172-su-17m3-fitter-h-build-article/ It's in the Azerbaijani Air Force markings - rather obscure scheme with only 4 airframes painted like that and put on reserve soon after that. You can see one here: https://vvsmodelling.com/2017/12/07/sukhoi-su-17m3-fitter-h/ Problem is though, that there are just a few photos available and colours vary quite a bit between them, especially the tan.
