  3. Hello to everyone. I really sorry about so quiet so long time. Family stuff, changin my work ets take some time. Much longer than i thought. But i finished fist of two "Fallos" fighters. The some pictures, and more pictures to go very soon .
  4. So, this is it, guys! Are you ready to spent some money? OSCAR EW 5894 1/72 and 1/48 decals! You can buy in from here: https://ctamodels.com/decals or here: https://www.ebay.com/sch/novokits/m.html 1/48 perfectly fits to Arfix kits A05123 or A05124
  5. Garfield is a toy. I think decals will not be enough. It will look too flat from differend angles.
  6. Guys, i have some good news for us all Folland Gnat "Hot Shots" decals in 1/72 and 1/48 scale already in progres. Release date in late december or early/middle january. When it's done - i tell you where to buy
  7. Firstly, I'm a big fan of the movie. Especially the first part. A fan so much that I just can not watch Top Gun - before my eyes there is a moment out from Hot Shots!. When Gnat appeared, I decided to make a diorama, in which funny moments from different parts of the movie will be collected: the beginning, the training flights and the preparation for the operation. But, as I wrote above, there is a delay with decals. In order not to lose time and work out the painting of the figures, I decided to make another moment from the film, which was not so difficult. I used a Trumpeter model in 1/48 and figures from Hasegawa. From collectors of railways took a painted porcelon for imitation of trees.
  8. Next case is to finish this one Much larger, with two planes, truck, many figures and a dog http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234984908-hot-shots-airfix-148-folland-gnat-aka-oscar-ew-5894/#comment-2048342
  9. Clear rods is Tamiya's Clear Plastic Beams. They have two or three different sizes - 40sm long, and 3mm, 5mm, 8mm wide.
  10. In this diorama i used Trumpeter 1/48 T-38C Talon, and couple Hasegawa's figures from Hasegawa 36006. Model is painted with Vallejo acrylic colors. On the diorama I tried to reproduce this moment.
  11. This diarama is temporary freezed due to decals in 48 scale But i'm created anothe one ;) http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235022308-eyewintess-based-on-the-movie-hot-shots/ To this diorama I will return very soon. I found someone who can draw and print decals to me.
  12. About three years ago, after Airfix released "Folland Gnat" in the 48th scale, I had an idea to create a diorama based on the movie "Hot Shots!". And I even started working on this topic. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234984908-hot-shots-airfix-148-folland-gnat-aka-oscar-ew-5894/#comment-2048342 But there was a problem - there were no decals. And I had nowhere to print them. So I decided to freeze for a while diormau with "Folland Gnat" and decided to make another, less large-scale, but no less ambitious. So, the diorama based on the film "Hot Shots!" named "Eyewitness".
  13. Thanks to everyone, i'm glad you liked my work Unfotunatly, i don't have photo step-by-step of painting process. But it's quite simple. I have only used Tamiya's acrylics. First silver for chipping, than XF-4 as surface primer imitation. Next Nato Blak for preshading. Next Olive Drab. Next salt on lines only. Than i mixed Olive Drab With Flat White in 5 to 2 maybe 3 (no more) proportion. Next remove salt, and paint finished. Sorry for my english.
