  1. Today I've applied primer - Mr. Surfacer 1500 Black Cheers, S.
  2. I'm glad I could be of some help Torbjorn Keeping fingers crossed for your work - doing a good job so far, can't wait to see it finished. Cheers, S.
  3. I am not really sure whether this shape of wings was real on this example of Bleriot, but OLUJ was Bleriot XI-2 Genie, if it helps to resolve the issue. Me friend made the kit of this example few years ago, but unfortunately, he left the hobby for unknown period of time, and subsequently deleted all of his accounts on forums and photo-sites, so I can not access to his photos of finished kit, neither do I have information about changes he made to tha basis of kit We're not in touch already few years, so I can't contact him for some info about the wings, but if I find s
  4. I've finally finished adding bits to Matilda, so we're ready for the primer now... I wasn't happy with how blankets on the turret rack stand, so I added two belts made from thin metal foil to "hold" them. Cheers, S.
  5. After a pretty busy week at work, I've finally found some time to start some inital work on this plastic. Not so much for the first "in progress" photo, but it should speed up soon, as I'm working on few more kits in various GBs... I've added few etched bits for the start, so next steps should take care of other wheels... Cheers, S.
  6. Good evening mates, I'd join this GB with this Revell kit in braillescale. Here are some aftermarket add-ons I will use too... First "in progress" photos will come soon... Cheers, S.
  7. Actually Pete, I think these etched ones are his elder product - resin ones have remark "new tool" and are dated back to 2014, and as I remember, I bought these etched tracks years before that. Anyhow, the challenge is at the desk - I'll try my best to assemble them as precise as I can, so hopefully they won't look to odd/awful Cheers, S.
  8. Thanks for the advice Pete, although these OKB Grigorov tracks are photoetched ones. As I remember from some earlier builds with Grigorov etched parts they are possibly a bit harder than for example Eduard or Extratech etched sets. So maybe I will have to temper them first over open flame to make them a bit softer for bending. It will be a challenge to do for sure, as I never worked with this big etched parts before, so cheering is very welcome Cheers, Srđan
  9. Thanks a lot for the support mates. I'm glad to be part of this little family of kit modellers from all around the world I'll do my best in this GB. Cheers, S.
  10. Good evening mates, I will join you with this small oldie - Somua S35 in braillescale. I will also use some aftermarket add-ons which will improve some details - small etched set for hull and turret, metal barrel from Armo, and best improvement (if I don't mess up assembling of it :D) - OKB Grigorov etched tracks (rubber ones from kit are REALLY ugly!) Well, see you soon with in progress photos... Cheers, Srđan
  11. Well here we are with some "in progress" photos finally... Tracks were not so hard to apply (having on mind they are rubber ones), but they were a link or two too short, so I had to superglue them to the area that won't be visible after putting sideskirts on their place... Some ejection pinmarks on those long "planks" above the wheels were filled with circular cutouts of thin styrene. Metal barrels of main gun and machine gun are very nicely made and they really bring this part of kit to life. I'll kee
  12. A little update - kittens are primered (Mr. Surfacer 1500) and preshaded (RLM 66). Tails and fins on F-14A "Final Countdown" and F-14D are painted in black... F-14A, VF-84 Jolly Rogers ("Final Countdown" movie) F-14A, VF-142 Ghostriders F-14D, VF-101 Grim Reapers Cheers, S.
  13. A coat of primer (Mr. Surfacer 1500 Black) is applied... Regards, S.
  14. Good evening mates, I'd like to apply with this oldy - Italeri rebox of an old ESCI Matilda in braillescale. I will represent boxart Matilda from Malta, 1942. Here are the parts and some additional stuff... See you soon with some update... Cheers, S.
  15. Being busy with so many other projects, I've finally took some time to pass the hardest hurdle - assembling the tracks. I've heard from various sources that these Zvezda tracks make some problems around wheels, but it was almost like an Kinder Surprise toy. Maybe problem arises if you want to make tracks free-falling around the wheels, as they are very tightly made to stand like this - straight. Anyway, I am now glueing small parts around the hull, so hopefully it's not too long until primering phase... Cheers, S.
