  1. Pff... Ordered my upgrades at the end of August and something happened with the shipment. All has been sent back without further notice. The courier only wants to give the info to the seller and now the package has been in storage for 3 weeks before it even gets there...
  2. So after the friendly reminder this one got on the workbench yesterday.. Started with the nosejob: the easy part, removing the original part along the panelline: and fitting the new part: So far so good, but the upper angle is completely different on the replacement part... so a check with the glass part is necessary: What I feared... Need to think a bit how to cope with this. But thinking about making a recess in the outside border to make the canopy fit. In the mean time I've glued the engine parts
  3. Not really, I've started working again in a new company after almost 6 months at home due to Corona... was also waiting for some scribing templates, but these seem to take forever to get delivered... Time to put this one on the bench to make some progress again... The rest will arrive some day...
  4. Decals on, worked perfect on one side(according to me at last...) on the other side, they slightly moved while using decalsetting... darn .... but I will leave it as it is... and so the rigging... for the first time, must admit it gave me some fear. First attempt with streched sprue. Made these as thin as I could, then cut some sections at length and glued these... Then checked with some friends for their opinion, which was unanimous... nope, not good... Next up, I've checked what I had at hand and found
  5. Also in for the ride... Seen some building reports and always baffled at what van be achieved with paper ..
  6. You are going all the way with these... Following with interest. Will you also add some canning to the surfaces while you are at it?
  7. Yesterday was a rainy day, and little on my hands, so a lot of modelling time...: An oversized picture of the Palash CIWS. In reality it looks more like this: the 100mm gun: The rest of the ship, just in need of a few touch-ups and an attempt to add some rigging and for size:
  8. splendid modeling, and learned something new about naval warfare
  9. Meanwhile the first one is in it's basecolor. These modern ships have beautiful lines, but on the other hand, are mostly pretty dull in colors... Dependent of where these are stationed, they have a darker or paler grey shade. On the other hand.. (maybe for the second kit included...) So I've choosen the darker shade for this one Looks pretty rough enlarged like this... On to paint the few details...
  10. That is some nice progress...
  11. I know someoneone in our modelling club who also loves this missile... Think he has almost the complete Hasegawa collection. This aircraft is of no particular interest to me, but we used to fly them, so I have a few to wrap in Belgian colors... So for a bit of laughter: And silence again..
  12. Thx, don't think I'm up to rigging etc yet, but these are "easy" ones to learn a few tricks. And I do love the clean lines of these modern ships... Elsewhere I was asked for the size: 96mm long and 16mm wide... Some progress: Most has been fitted, with exception for the parts I think I won't be able to reach for painting: The main mast was nerve wrecking: 8 pieces on a few mm's All attached with the tiniest amounts of PVA The result so far:
  13. The Karakurt class of ship's (also known as Project 22800) is the (for now) latest class of stealth corvettes for the Russian navy. They are meant to be more seaworthy then the Buyan-M-class which were designed for the littoral zone. With the hostillities in Ukraine, ssome larger projects were halted/pauzed and this is a cheap alternative for the Admiral Grigorovich class frigates... These ships are armed with 8 vertical launchers for Oniks/Calibr anti-ship cruise missiles, a 100mm A-190 dual purpose gun, 2 AK-630 CIWS (first two ships), Pantsir M CIWS or Palash/Palma CIWS.
  14. My kids want a cat for Christmas... Normally we do Turkey, but if it makes them happy...
  15. Finally it happened, the flightattendant asked "is there a doctor on this plane?" and I leaped up and said yes. Did a tracheotomy at 30000ft with a rasorblade and a ballpoint pen. He didn't make it, but the thrill was undeniable. Seriously thinking about going to the doctor school now...
  16. I'm eight days in self-isolation and it's very upsetting to see my wife standing at the window, gazing aimlessly into space, tears rolling down her cheeks. It breaks my heart to see her like this. I have even considered letting her in, but rules are rules...
  17. My choise of subjects is: Hobby Boss Mig-17C 1/48 (option) oob Eduard Skyhawk 1/144 (for sure, with scratched armament) AFV M24 Indochina war 1/35 (option) with the lack of wheeled thingies... But it will be hard to finish this one in the timeframe with two legend upgrade sets...
  18. My first order arrived (been more then a month on it's way, but it was well worth the wait: I've ordered the set for the Yak-130 and F-16D: Yak-130: F-16D: and a detail shot:
  19. Well, somebody pointer me to the fact that the IFR still wasn't good, too long, bends too small I reworked it. The brass broke with these angles but some hearing made it soft like butter. Maybe a few hours outside have the same result... That original stiffness is gone completely now On another forum somebody asked for the size: Almost 85mm ... The canopy... I've done a dryfit before, and all could be closed up... Not anymore... So I had to break it out, and you guessed it, a lot broke off along with the seat. (IFR, eject
  20. Last step before paint: the inflight refueling probe. The original kitpart is solid plastic of 0.5mm... very solid and presumably gone under 60 seconds... thought of replacing it with brass, a little stiffer than copper. Eduard was so nice to provide a template, unfortunately a little to big, and as it seems projected under a different angle than looking from directly above or below.... So the Middle piece was remover, a 0.4mm drilled to accept the brass part (plastic is 0.6mm, I need to have some body...) The brass was thinner at both sides and bent
  21. To hot to use the airbrush, So I rook a new kit from the stash... The Uran-9 a russian unmanned robot vehicle, Presented to the public in 2016, as a back up vehicle for military operations. It served far recon and firesupport while performing urban operations and anti-terrorism actions. The vehicle is 5.12m long, 2.53m wide and 2.5m heigh. It weighs almost 10ton. The armament consists of a 30mm 2A72 canon for ground targets and low flying aircraft, a PKT 7.62mm coaxial machinegun to engage lightarmored targets, 4 9M120 Ataka anti-tan
