  1. Yellow, yellow, YELLOW! Great collection
  2. Great painting & weathering! Congratulations!
  3. Thank you Colleagues for your kind words It motivates me to build next gliders
  4. Taking advantage of the "opportunity" (COVID isolation) I completed the model of the DFS Rhönbussard glider. The base was CMR resin. Attention! The set hull is too short by 4 mm. Apparently not much, but in this scale and with the size of the model it's VISIBLE. Fortunately, I was able to add the missing part This glider (reg. SP-125) was taken over and reconstucted in Poland after II World War and served 3 years. I tried to show as many moving wing elements as possible and the structure of the airfoil. I hope you will like the model
  5. Today I want to present you genuine carrier-based aircraft - Grumman Wildcat. (Un)fortunately as usually it's a "cat" without uniform Based on few photos from the Internet (easy to find - use registration number) I added some details & decals to Arma Hobby 70033 kit and tanks copied from T-33A kit. As a result agricultural plane appeared (the original was used by Butler Aviation, Redmond, Oregon in 1957-1960). I hope that you'll like the efect
  6. Great surfaces! Probably cost you a lot of work. Congrats.
  7. Looking for inspiration for a new project I found photo of Texan used as a crop duster. Searching for next photos resulted info, that this same airframe was used as... air tanker. For me it was obvious that I have a topic for a new project I bought a HobbyBoss Easy Assembly kit (sorry - only this was available), planned "some" changes and after few days (easy kit ) I can present to you my try to build Tanker #8 And at the end
  8. Colleagues, answering your questions: This particular set has some signs where ribs are BUT due to quite old forms not on every surface they're visible. For gliders produced by PZW (Sęp, Bocian, Gil, etc...) it is characteristic that spaces between ribs are... raised. I've decided to do not fight with that, not fill all surfaces but "underline" this structure by double color painting. For some other gliders (especially resin kits) I have no even this kind of support so yes, I'm using plans from books. Main are: - for gliders developed in Poland: "Konstrukcje lotnicze P
  9. Next glider finished After almost two years from start (read: it's not so complicated kit; just the modeller was lazy....) I've finished model of first Polish post-war glider: "Sęp". Model shows a prototype which is easy to distinguish from serial ones - has no air brakes on top wing surfaces. The source :
  10. Hi, I've tried to summarize my notes about airborne lifeboats. I hope that you can add / correct something : Fairey Barracuda carried 17.9ft airborne lifeboat Lockheed Hudson ASR III aircraft carried Mark 1 Uffa Fox 24ft (?) long Airborne Lifeboat Mark IA - 23ft long Vickers Warwick ASR I carried 27ft airborne lifeboat Avro Lancaster ASR III carried some different boat types (SARO 3 ?) Avro Shackleton carried SARO 3 airborne lifeboat (30ft long) Boeing B-17 carried A-1 airborne lifeboat Boeing B-29 carri
  11. I've it on my desk and I know how tiny it is! Superb!
  12. Yes, it's not a S-F model Yes. In 2019 they released "Piper Pa-25 Pawnee over Australia" - this same kit with changed decals. I'ts xMas time. Ask Santa Sorry, Moa I've only one photo where some scratch & cuttings are visible (btw: shape of tail is filled; in kit tail has rounded shape). All colleagues - thank you for your comments
  13. Today I want to present a Piper Pa-25 Pawnee miniature. The base was Kovozávody Prostějov kit in 1:72 scale. One of the decal set is for SP-ZSG but in a different livery. Also some scratch was needed to liken kit to "DUSTY". In the end I have a tug for my gliders
  14. Finished. Finally. It should take me two or three times less time, but... The most important is that I'm quite enjoyed at the end. Enjoy watching. WiP thread is here.
