  1. Hi No offense at all, I’ve always questioned this Russian Cyrillic marking on a Ukrainian aircraft ! You confirm my concern. Anyway, it will remain as it is! thanks to all for your kind comments. Phil
  2. Hello folks, For my second "ready for inspection" post, here is my 1/48 Kitty Hawk Mig-25 finished in the lovely Ukrainian Air Force deco. All Barracuda resin sets have been used, namely exhausts, corrected nose and wheels, as well as Eduard sets for the intakes and cockpit. A lot has been said about KH kits and this kit in particular. True it's not an easy one but very rewarding when finished. Paints from MRP range, decals from the box and Flory models washes as a finish (I just love that stuff!). Hope you'll enjoy Phil
  3. Hi Nice kit of of a nice plane! Finally I get to see one of these Wingsy kit finished…..It looks very tempting. How did you get the mottles done? Looks like airbrush for the center and hand painted for the rest??? good job
  4. Hi to all, Thank you for the kind comments and the welcoming words! As you may have noticed, this paint shceme is the one depicted in the 1/72 Matchbox kit boxart… a true chilhood memory! I have a plan to make modern kits wearing old matchbox box art paint scheme, the next one on the list will be the Dooleybird Mustang based on the 1/48 Airfix Kit.
  5. Hi everyone, This is my first post in this section and I present you my last build: 1/32 Eduard 109 E-7 trop. The kits is oob and definitely not a straightforward build for me at least… wrapped front fuselage, hug gaps on the underside of the wing/fuselage joints, etc.. Paints are from the AK "True Colour" range and despite the ease or use, I am a bit puzzled regarding the tint of the Rlm 79 which looks too orange for me… but I'm far from an expert. A final word: it's my first 1/32 Emil since my childhood attempt on a Matchbox kit in 1978 (and I had more fun!) Thanks for watching Phil
  6. Hi Folks Nice build! I've just finished the E-7 Trop boxing and your fitting problems look very familiar…. Fortunately for you, you've decided to let the engine visible. Fitting the engine cowlings in the closed position is also an adventure… guess how I know.
