  1. Thanks Thank you. Big job indeed. Thank you. Thanks. Mine was lying on wardrobe so warps were stock, free gift from Revell Many thanks Thank you. Revell is giving maual hot to cut decal for better adhesion but...well...I've decided to not give it a try Thank you very much. Well, the age of this kit is pretty visible and it can't be compared to any modern, even 1/35 Huey kit. Thanks. Surfboard was a must
  2. Thank you Thank you "I mean I'm not afraid to surf this place, I'll surf this whole fu***ng place!" Thanks "You can either surf, or you can fight!" Thanks That board just had to be there
  3. 1/24 UH-1B Huey from Revell (Monogram) was finished today. Model is really old-first Monogram edition was released in 1969. It's age is perceptible while building. Wrapped parts, weak details, transparent elements needed to be polished. Building was a little longer than I planned because I've decided to make little corrections. Instrument board is modified, along with seats. Rear troop bench is scratchbuild. Upholstery is made with baking paper. Also cooling vents are new, with wire mesh cover. Instead of sharkmouth decal I used self-made masks. Surfboard is made of thin plank. Painting is done with Tamiya.Gunze,AK and Vallejo. Chipping is AK Fluid and weathering is AMMO MIG, AK Interactive, Vallejo and Tamiya pigments, washes, fluids... Hope you like it :)
  4. Many thanks Glad you like it Well , box of rigging line says 0,3 mm. Perhaps I've stretched it too much so it's too thin. I have thin cooper wire (but thicker than AMMO line) but I had more control glueing rigging line than wire. Thank you Glad you like it. Rigging is like defusing a bomb-one wrong move and you have your pieces everywhere. In this case you have glue everywhere Thank you This set in Poland is like Yeti. You heard that it exists but no one knows where to find it And if you find it and you see the price then you want it to dissapear I had similar problem with landing gear. Changing knobs to metal ones helps a lot
  5. Model of 1/32 Grumman F3F-3 by Revell (Monogram) is a very old one - it appeared on the market in the ' 60. For its time it was a great model: it had a retracting landing gear, movable control surfaces and closing canopy. It certainly doesn't look awesome today, but despite the age it's nice one one. Purchased a few weeks ago F3F-3 was finished today. I painted the model with Mr. Hobby, Tamiya, Vallejo and Ak.paint range. I've scratchbuild gun camera, instrument panel, seatbelts and wires on the engine. Antennas are AMMO product. Landing gear is retracting but some work was needed to make it work. Weathering is AK products. I've learned much from this build, for example: -old model means old styrene. Old styrene means fragile styrene. Smaller the part, more fragile then -bigger model, fewer details -people at Monogram were clever. Check documentation (especially photos) before blaming anybody for decal error -people at Monogram were also lazy. One new part doesn't make different aiplane Check your documentation often. Some things aren't difficult in shape and can be built from scratch in no-time -check fit before sanding, sometimes flash is really something important -there is no such thing as thin enough plastic profile to restore raised panel lines. If you think is thin enough then it needs to be thined more -water-based putty doesn't harm paint. Watered cotton bud used for putty polishing does -all mechanisms are working better when knobs are metal or made of new styrene profiles -sometimes montage sequence in instruction is logical -aluminium foil from yoghurt seal is perfect for seat belts
  6. Many thanks It's still in shops around the world. Of course in Revell box. I think Revell re-released it in 2019 or on the beggining of 2020. You should have no problems with finding it This is out-of-the-bottle Mr.Hobby Aqueous H14, without any mixing. Then MIG Track Wash which is brown, I didn't coated it after painting so no gloss varnish etc.. Wash was used as soon as paint was dry. About rescribing...It's not my favourite form of excercise I can say that with RB Productions Scribe-R I was able to finish it and not throw X-1 through the window with subsonic speed
  7. Thank you very much Thank you. Well , never again. Original Nichimo in Nichimo box anytime but copy? No, thanks
  8. Bell X-1 Revell/Monogram 1/32 I think this one is much older than me :) Painted with Tamiya and Mr. Hobby paints. Weathering is done with AMMO MIG and AK INTERACTIVE. Base is made with AK Crackle Effects. I've modified hatch lid, rescriber raised panel lines, added a few wires behind the instrument panel and basically that's all. Hope you'll like it :)
  9. U-boot U-107 type IXb Fada Xieda (Nichimo) 1/200 Painted with Tamiya+Mr. Hobby+Vallejo+Ammo Mig Weathering: Ammo Mig+Ak Interactive A horrible model, a lot to improve or to be scratchbuild, nevertheless can be put together with a CA , putty and hammer :D
  10. Hello, Straight from the bench - T-70 X-wing from the last trilogy of "Star Wars". 1/50 model produced by toy company Revell straight from the box looked terrible. Since I didn't liked the movie colors at first sight, I decided to paint the fighter in the style of earlier versions. I also made some details for the cockpit. The model is painted with Mr Hobby and Tamiya paints. Chipping is made with help of AMMO Chipping fluid and Vallejo light gray applied with a sponge. Weathering is mostly AMMO products and Tamiya pigments . Stand is made of what was lying around. I don't recommend this model, but I'm quite happy with the effect after repainting.
  11. Hello AMT Batwing is old set , released close to 1989 Burton's "Batman". Not bad at all but with some fit problems and strange "peeling" plastic. I've removed all styrene gun barrels and used brass tubing insteag. Vulcan gun is from Master. Whole model is finisched with Mr.Hobby paints and Ammo Mig weathering products.
  12. " Batman is human too..." final version. Scale 1/25 AMT + a bit from scratch. Seatbelts are made by Eduard, gun barrels from Aber , ammo belts from Tamiya. Trees and grass are from Freon. Painting with Mig and Tamiya + Mr. A Hobby. Weathering with MIG only. Guns are removable (magnets). https://i.imgur.com/1UiVAZ2.jpg[/img] Uffff...That's second batvehicle out of four that I have...Hope you'll like it...Now onto Batwing
  13. Sooo...another Batmobile, this time legendary one Of course seatbelts: ...and new gun barrels: Let's begin First upgrades on seats with metal net: Kit guns were more like a dampers without springs but thanks to one of my friends I have Academy Brownings: With Aber barrel it looks like...err...gun And here is finished cockpit: Now I'm waiting only for Joker figure and ammo belts from Eduard.
  14. And it's finished. Animated Batmobile will be changed for the one from 1989 movie when I'll finish it
  15. Hello, Bad news...I have working smoke generator but I couldn't fit it into car. Too much wires and there wasnn't enough place for it. But after weekend (well I hope so) I'll get back to it and get it done. Now one photo of finished dio, from phone camera - sorry for that, more photos from normal camera and with working lights tommorow.
