  1. What a coincidence! How did you feel about this incident during the crazy cold war time?
  2. On the September 13, 1987, the soviet Su-27's vertical tail cut one engine of norwegian P-3C while intercepting over the Barents Sea. We can't insure the incident was a "brave pilot with superb skill" or "flight accident caused by pilot negligence". From my point of view, this is a fascinating topic to present. We can find two version of this incident: damage on the left or right vertical fin. After comparing the details of two side, I prefer the latter one. These pictures were released by norwegian military which shooted by P-3C, notice the R-27T fins were in different color The following is my work: Thanks for watching!
  3. This kit goes......not well, needs lots of putty except for main fuselage.
  4. I found these picture too, but I considered it as the same one, just in different peroid . So two individual aircraft shared the same code truly happened in russia!!?? haha~
  5. Let me point out some of the differnce between in service(top) and retired(down),I was so cofused while building it.....
  6. YaK-141(initially called YaK-41M),the first supersonic vertical takeoff fighter of the world. Compare with YaK-38, which is absolutely more comprehensive. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Yakovlev was fund by Lockheed Corporation, which was developing the JSF X-35. Unfortunately it never went into service in the end. Right side is present as retired condition, there is so many differnce between in service condition. Does anybody knows why? Thanks for watching!
  7. At this point I want to see how far the acrylic paint can go, but I will try to use oil paints after have more budget for modeling, thanks a lot for your suggest!
  8. My works almost coloured with normal acrylic paint and some Vallejo, weathering by thin acrylic paint and poster paint, then apply clear coat spray as finish, all done by paint brush except for finish.....not a mainstream modeling technique.
  9. As I can see this is 100% real one, absolutely stunning work!
  10. I confess that I intended to collect pictures which look dirty enough as reference for practice stronger weathering @@
  11. Rafale must be one of the most elegant fighter of the world, may be due to this fact, it's rarely to see a dirty looking work. As far as I am concerned, there is no clean marine plane on the earth, so this is what happened...... Rafale can carry two MBDA apache like this, however it seems that uncommon showed on any loadout chart....... By the way I'm not sure whether the fuel tanks can carry like this...... I didn't glued the fuel tanks thus the pattern can be changed, but it's not very stable though="= Thanks for your watching!
  12. I used nEOiMAGING4 to desaturate and blur the photo. Take picture outside seems to be better than indoor.
  13. Owing to the front portion within the Warsaw Pact. East Germany received advanced version of soviet weapon to against NATO. Ye-6T-3 as one of the canard nose intake jet (another one is Ye-152M), canard increased lift and improved agility. However may be it also caused some flight control problem, after the prototype was crashed, the project had been canceled. Just let me assumed that the problem was solved and exported to East Germany and piloted by Sigmund Jähn, the first german in space (such a complex ´_ゝ`). The modification was based on Revell 04346, which is plenty of indented rivet and recessed panel lines,a very brilliant kit indeed. Coloured with black acrylic paint first, then applied Citadel ironbreaker. It's matt texture, but at least way better than lame normal metallic acrylic paint@@. Add the canard with plastic sheet. I applied the right bottom wing roundel in wrong direction, so I had to repaint it. How dumb am I? Seriously =..= Here is the result: I heard that sunshine is the best light for take picture, maybe it is true...... I tried to make a spy satellite style image, just for fun...... Thanks for your watching!
