  1. Beautiful collection Paul! Something very different and eye-catching.
  2. Very much looking forward to this release. Are there any updates?
  3. They are tanker aircraft. True long-range attack capabilities when paired with Rafales, Su-35s, and other MiG-29s. The Su-35s are on the way. I've read that Saudi Arabia paid for these new acquisitions, but that is not confirmed. Nice new equipment for the Egyptian Air Force!
  4. Hello everyone, In the photo link below, there is a line-up of Egyptian MiG-29s in two different camouflage schemes. Does anyone have any info on the aircraft in the background which seem to feature darker shades of gray? I have read that these aircraft ARE NOT MiG-35s, but rather a later variant of the MiG-29 (possibly MiG-29M/M2). Any help would be appreciated.
  5. Could you please tell me what book that is? I would very much appreciate it. Try these two links: https://www.google.com.eg/search?q=مصر+ميج-21&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwjE99Hc97vvAhWHAjQIHXQrBIQQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq=مصر+ميج-21&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQA1D9igNY_YoDYP-OA2gAcAB4AIABUYgBUZIBATGYAQCgAQGqAQtnd3Mtd2l6LWltZ8ABAQ&sclient=img&ei=YGBUYMTHDoeF0PEP9NaQoAg&bih=729&biw=1218 https://www.google.com.eg/search?source=univ&tbm=isch&q=egypt+mig-21&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjr1ILX97vvAhXBGTQIHZDuB6AQjJkEegQICRAB&biw=1218&bih=729
  6. That is the best looking 747 ever. I've read that these will replace Austria's Eurofighters. They are capable of carrying 532 Sidewinder & AMRAAM missiles. This is complimented by 16 30mm canons in the wings. Can't wait for the Xtradecal sheet.
  7. Thank you once again Dora and PLEASE keep your excellent releases coming. That is a great looking kit and you can count me in for a purchase.
  8. An absolute gem Libor. I love seeing aircraft in lesser-known markings. That's a very nice Russian P-40!
  9. I would absolutely love a new tool Il-4/DB-3. Any news on their Do-23? That's another kit I am very excited about.
  10. Impressive! Stunning! Wow! Might be the best looking Pe-8 I've ever seen. I absolutely love this aircraft. Was the camo airbrushed free hand?
  11. Very nice build. What is the title of the book in that photo? Looks very interesting.
  12. Had my hopes up but this is a really bad way to start off my Saturday. That 1/32 Hanriot would have been really nice. Can only hope that Roden's new 1/32 WWI birds will sell well so that they will continue to offer new releases every year.
  13. Thank you Dora for all of your interesting subject matter - I love the variety. I'll definitely pick up your Norseman. Any chance of including Israeli Air Force decals? I also support the suggestion of a Max Holste Broussard. There are many privately owned Broussards with beautiful schemes.
  14. Thanks much Dave. Yes, the above explanation will help me out a lot. It's now just a matter of doing it and learning along the way. Thank you very much for the above tips. Cheers and happy modelling.
  15. That looks amazing! You're one of the few modelers I've ever seen to pull off the dreaded mottling schemes from World War I. Looks like the "torn kitchen sponge technique" may be the key. Do you have any more tips concerning the paint work - beside the use of torn kitchen sponges, cotton buds and small brushes - that you can give us? Thanks much for sharing.
  16. Modeldecal produced a very nice sheet of French roundels with separate anchors. The sheet number was 62. See here: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/modeldecal-62-french-modern-cocardes--157389
  17. Somehow missed this the first time around. Another beautiful piece of work. Love the markings - what brand are they? Also, how did you make the wing lights and the small light just behind the canopy?
