    Supermarine SWIFT FR5 Aifix 1/72

    Great work as always Silvano
  2. As I said, this is an awesome kit, but requires careful work on the fuselage / wings junction, especially on the lower surface, where a small gap must be filled with AC glue or a thin strip of plasticard. I suggest you do a patience dry fitting job before gluing the parts together. Another delicate point is the separate front lower section (with front undercarriage and guns fairings), good dry fitting test are required also here. I love this kit, i have 8 of them
  3. Great choice, i'm building UTI version right now. The kit Is very accurate with nice details, but not so easy to put together I'll follow you

    Finnish MIG-15 UTI Mukula

    So, i'm ready to use Alclad black primer to prepare a good base for matallic paints. After some tests, i decided to use Alclad White alluminium for entire surface and a mix of polished alluminium and airspeed alluminium to overpaint some panels, according with real Mukula pics. Oriskany
  8. Yes, F-47 with Italian markings are not very often represented by modellers. If this will be the choice, i'll start from Jugs over Germany Eduard's 1/48 edition (with a lot of resin and PE sets inside), with Tauro decals regarding 5th or 51st Stormo at the beginning of the fifties
  9. Probably i am in this GB having a small choice of correct subjects:Danish RF -84, Italian F-51 Mustang or Italian F-47 Thunderbolt...

    Finnish MIG-15 UTI Mukula

    Hi everyone! this is my subject for this edition of KUTA GB. I started the Eduard's kit some months ago, abandoned it for a long time, and now i think is right occasion to finish the model. I would like to rapresent one of the four Finnish MIG-15UTI in service as a trainers for MIG-21 fleet, Eduard provide very high quality decals for MU-2 (mukula, chubby in Finnish) airframe. Kit is awesome but not very easy to put together, careful works are needed to assembly wings to fuselage and for the lower front section. This is the starting point: i finished plastic works on the fuselage and wings, i must rescribe some panel lines and rivets before primer. Happy Christmas Oriskany

    Easy 8 - Tamiya 1/35

    Thanks Ozzy! I have used metal tracks many times, they are very realistic and quite easy to assembly. They are a little bit difficult to paint than plastic tracks, but you can use a good burnisher, oils and pigments to have a good effect. Unfortunately, the main problem is their cost...

    Easy 8 - Tamiya 1/35

    Hi guys I'm in this great STGB with a beautiful Tamiya East Eight dedicated to the European theater. I'm going to use some AM, like Eduard's PE and Friulmodel T66 tracks. In the next days i'll think about final markings, now i'm building it like generic Easy 8
  14. Hello everyone I would like to show you my last completed model, a Eduard's 1/72 Spitfire LF Mk.IX in IDF markings. The build is complete OOB, except for the engine cover, replaced with resin part It was a very enjoyable work, i'm thinking about realize another one in USAAF markings
