    assuming this is about the 1/72 F-5E Hobbyboss kit a remark that the kit has one serious error: the windshield is about 30% too short! Look my webpage here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/f5-72/f5-72-6.htm Correction is possible.
  2. as a general rule, I never airbrush - any paints in a cold environment (<18 degrees C) or to hot ( > 28 degrees). - acrylics when humidity is high (so not on rainy or thunderstorm days).
  3. Agree, Scalemates is the best source to see what kits are new, old reboxed kits, brands that use other moulds etc. It is always my first source to check this. (sometimes I also add some comments and boxes on that site). link: https://www.scalemates.com/
  4. ESM 2019 has ocurred and was a big show. An almost 1 hour video is on You Tube giving a great impression about ESM 2019, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hL85_arY-hk
  5. when attempting to improve the old 1/72 ESCI/ ERTL/ Italeri Tu-22 Blinder, have a look at my old page at https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/blinder/blinder.htm may give some extra suggestions.
  6. indeed quite different. There is a 1/72 resin kit of the M.346 from ScratchAeronautics. Though a bit expensive....
  7. The pattern on a SU-33 may indeed vary a bit. The Zactoman link with drawings is very good. For those who want a large 1/32 conversion, look at my modelling SU-33 project here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/su27-32/su27-1.htm This model will also be on display on the IPMS NL EURO SCALE MODELLING show in Houten , The Netherlands on Saturday November 23. It will be part of the SIG Eastern-Europe display with this years' theme "Eastern Block Naval Aviation".
  8. Sure, all welcome to come. Saturday November 23 is the day of EURO SCALE MODELLING 2019 edition. See for the very long list of participants, clubs, traders, SIGS etc the big list at: https://euroscalemodelling.nl/handelaren-2/ A big bonus is that also second stuff is sold by individuals, so you may be able to find that particular kit Halls will be opened from 10.00 till 17.00.

  9. Fed.Std colours listed are correct. But also check out the IPMS Nederland website KLu F-16 info at: https://www.ipms.nl/artikelen/nedmil-luchtvaart/vliegtuigen-g/vliegtuigen-g-gendyn-f16 The different paint brands are also listed there in the "kleuren tabel". For understanding the Dutch text, use Google Translate.

    As Rob noted, use the "download link" in message above to see the C-130H article PDF. In addition have a look at the IPMS.NL walkaround of the C-130 that includes the Royal Netherlands Air Force (KLu) aircraft: https://www.ipms.nl/walkarounds/walkaround-vliegtuigen-props/546-walkaround-c130 and also some info about the KLu operations at: https://www.ipms.nl/artikelen/nedmil-luchtvaart/vliegtuigen-l/vliegtuigen-l-lockheed-c130 (Articles are in Dutch so use Google Translate for your mother language)
  13. Even more F-105 walk around photos can be seen on the IPMS NL site: https://www.ipms.nl/walkarounds/walkaround-jets/565-walkaround-f105
  14. I have made a few 1/72 Condor kits of the MiG-25 (which is the same mould as the later Zvezda). For an impression look at my site pages here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/soviet/mig25.htm
