  1. Very nice Stuka. In Italy we called it "Picchiatello", a play on words because "picchiata" means dive (i.e. dive bomber = bombardiere in picchiata) but picchiatello also sounds like "little crazy". Picchiatello was also the italian name of a Jerry Lewis character The italian translation of group is "Gruppo" Just for the sake of my language, I apologize in advance if I should appear pedantic
  2. Hi! Merry Christmas and Happy holydays to all This year I finished 5 models, here they are in chronological order Iraqi Air Force MiG-21MF Eduard 1/72 Hellenic Air Force T-2E Buckeye Wolfpack 1/72 US Marines VMF(N)542 F6F-5N Hellcat Eduard 1/72 US Navy VF-21 Freelancers F-14A Tomcat HobbyBoss 1/72 Italian Cavalry Regiment "Savoia" Centauro Trumperter 1/35th with resin wheels and aluminium barrel
  3. Thank You @Col. and @Dansk F-14 engine nozzle "parking" position From "Home of M.A.T.S." I like symmetry so, if I have a choice, I choose this option however there are photos of parked planes in every configuration. I did another tomcat with the open nozzles because I had seen it like this in the picture
  4. just done Grumman F-14A Tomcat VF-21 Freelancer BuNo 161603 Hobby Boss 1/72 Thank You https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235099422-hb-172-freelancers-ex-wolfpacks-f-14a/
  5. Thank You all after having assembled the definitive missiles and having opacified where it was needed, I can call this model done Grumman F-14A Tomcat VF-21 Freelancer BuNo 161603 Hobby Boss 1/72
  6. Thank You I know that it is not considered a vehicle up to the standard of other armored vehicles and that it has several critical issues, but I must say that it has some style, as a good Italian. seen live is very beautiful (my pic)
  7. Hi it should be almost done. I just have to give the satin coat, make 2 aim-7 missiles and redo the aim-9, I don't like the ones I put
  8. Thank You @CT7567 You are completely right. Fortunately I am within the terms of the other Group Build I am participating (simply called "Gulf War" in an Italian modelling site), because it includes the entire period from 2 August 1990 to 28 February 1991 I also have the decals for the VF-154 CAG but the same subject was already built by another participant
  9. Hi! Some time has passed since the last update, in this time I have completed an armored vehicle that has been waiting for a long time link but I have also almost finished the tomcat! after having mounted the air intakes without problems, I started painting preshading : paint job part 1 At this point I decided to change the subject because in reality I have already done a tomcat of the VF-1 and that's what I like best I still had to choose a plane that had participated in Desert Storm and I chose this one from VF-21 So.. Paint job part 2 Decaling
  10. Hi! This is one of the first times that I show a model in this section of the forum because I mostly do airplanes and some airplane related AFV I made this armored car to remember a friend who served in the corp it belongs to, the Cavalry Italian Cavalry Regiment "Savoia" Centauro Trumperter 1/35th with resin wheels and aluminium barrel
