  1. Hello, my modeler friends! Now that I have finished this long task at last. A vintage Soviet WW2 Bomber Tupolev Tu-2S in 1/48 Scale from a Chinese company called Xuntong Models. I have never heard of this company until I found this kit and bought it. I think this is quite a young company and has only got a handful of aircraft model kits. The Tu-2 is the medium high-speed bomber of the Soviets during the WW2 and had large internal bomb bay. It can also be used as a torpedo bomber and can even match the speed of some single-engined fighters. It played a major role in the final offensive of the Red Army. The build I experienced is a bit challenging and complicated. Includes many details but they are not crisp like the Eduard's Pe-2 or the Dragon's Bf-110 that I built before. I used many PE parts and scratch upgrades. The major modifications are_ riveting the entire aircraft, cutting out the plastic part and installing the PE Landing Flaps, PE and scratch-detailed engines, scratch detailed seat belts and bomb bay. These are my first to experience this much modification of the original plastic kit. So, of course made some mistakes. But at last, although not perfect, it seems beautiful and I feel satisfied. Hope you guys like it. Happy Modeling!
  2. 1/48 Scale Yak-130 from Zvezda. Painted in Myanmar Air Force colors. OOB build. A well-detailed but a little sophisticated kit. Panel lines are a little over-scaled. Resin pilots are from Kitty Hawk Yak-130.
  3. Hello , I used Mr Color C119 (RLM79 Sand Yellow) and C115(RLM65 Light Blue) for the belly. Thanks.
  4. Hi there! This is my first output of 2020. Bf-110E2 in 1/48 scale from Dragon Models. A very nice kit with tons of detail. Fitting was not an issue. Built OOB. Oil drums and Jerrycans are from Bronco. A highly recommended kit!
  5. Nothing special done on them. Just masked to protect them from oversprays.
  6. Hello. This is my second chopper build and its in a big scale. 1/35 Trumpeter kit painted in Myanmar Air Force colors. OOB build with some scratch details added. Hope you like it.
  7. Excellent build. I have mine completed recently too.
  8. Hello Everybody! I recently finished the 1/48 Hellcat Fighter in the rarely seen scheme which is the British Fleet Air Arm version. OOB build but some scratch details like seat belts, gun barrels and engine wiring are added.
  9. There are still many F-7s in service. I don't think the Jf-17s are the direct replacement for the F-7s. And we got only 7 Jf-17s in the inventory.
  10. This is developed in joint by Pakistan and China. More like a copy of F-16.
  11. I totally agree with you. The kit has given an option whether to pose open or closed. I decided to go for an open petals otherwise I have to cut some parts on the root of these petal. After all, its a scale model. I assume that it looks more lively and beautiful this way.
