  1. Thank you, there’s still a bit of fun with the camouflage painting.
  2. The painting of camouflage continues.
  3. This time I approached the camouflage a little differently, first it went yellow and after masking it grey on the underside. Then mask and green at the top and the sides went. Of course, the colors that correspond to the Italian camouflage of the Bilmodels palette.
  4. Yesterday it was possible to put together the interior of the cabin and the model. As I wrote, I did the glazing of the cabin myself with TAMIYA tape.
  5. Hello! I know I haven’t been in the forum for a long time, but that’s how it is with me. We started a little weekend project yesterday. My wife is happy because another box is disappearing on my closet. “Saetta” straight out of the box and without additives. Only these masks I make myself for the glazing. So far, only the contents of the box. It’s a pity there aren’t any extras. The studio isn’t finished yet, so the photos are completely finished. The glazing is beautiful and transparent. Painting is also chosen.
  6. Assembly is in progress and it's going on at best. And I have to admit that the fit of the parts is perfect, everything fits and nothing needs to be fiddled with to fit the parts. All you have to do is to follow the instructions and look how the pins are positioned. The model is almost ready, and by the way as the "Falco" is put together I would like to ask how the camouflage came out? I ask because it is my first 32.
  7. Some of the masks removed, no touch-ups, paint is superbly adhered to the surface. Now flash, tracing paper, masks and assembly.
  8. I managed to put the last camouflage color, it was fun to paint and you can see the effect in the picture. Slowly the end and next models are waiting in the queue.
  9. The fun continues, with another color of camouflage applied.
  10. The engine cover was riveted and put together. Except of two side covers which will be next to show engine. Camouflage colors were applied but not all of them. Same goes for the chassis, one built up and the other with covers removed to show the resin wheels with beautiful CMK camouflage.
  11. I don't know how it is for you, but I sometimes take the model to work and there I can build it. Being at night I was able to improve the camouflage painting. The only disadvantage is that I can not take good pictures there as well as now at home due to renovation.
  12. Another camouflage color applied, but there will be one more coat. Because on this one the shading shows through too much after drying.
  13. Not all parts of the model are in the photo, but all of them have already been painted with the bottom color.
  14. I haven't had the chance, but I'll brag about another addition to "Falco" and that is the resin wheels from CMK. The wheels have realistic tyre deflection, replicated lettering on the tyre and corrected rim. CMK also offers wheels for the Fiat G.50 and these are the same wheels, only without the deflection, I also have the G.50 and I will start it soon. In order to show such a beautiful wheel I will make one undercarriage shin closed and the other open. The model will gain in attractiveness. The next step was to paint the tyre and its masking to be able to paint the rim. While masking, the cabin cover was also masked. As I wrote earlier ICM has included in the instruction a template for making the masks, but due to my laziness I did not use it and made the masks myself.
  15. It's been a while since the last post and construction has slowly moved forward. As well as the renovation of my new workshop. Returning to the model ICM has very nicely done a replica of the double star engine, also interestingly ICM has solved its assembly by hiding the mounting pins cleverly and which are also intended to catch the geometry and proper assembly of the engine and its cowl. The engine can be made in a closed cowl as well as in various combinations of open. With the open option we have to put covers on the cylinders. In the cylinders there is a hole where the plug should be and I used it and made the plugs. I painted engine parts in appropriate colors and completed them with EDUARD plates. Two side covers will be removed so something will be visible. As you can see on the pictures I painted the parts separately and then put them together. Thanks to the pegs it can be put together without any problems.
  16. I laid down primer and painted a white cross on the rudder and a red stripe on the fuselage. Then masking and primer again.
  17. Already the model is slowly taking on the shape of an airplane and the trusty lego blocks I use to catch the geometry.
  18. Riveting continues, there is still a lot of work to be done and two "Tunnan" are already waiting.
  19. I have to brag because I have still new from FLY 32022 - SAAB J 29 F "Tunnan" in 1:32 scale. FLY has released "Tunnan" in B and F versions and I managed to get both of them and both will be shown here. For this model FLY has also released masks to paint cabins (artm32011) and wheels (artm32014) which I also have. This is a quick in-box of the kit. I will do rest of in-boox pictures as soon as I have some time.
  20. I have to brag because I still have a brand new 1:32 scale SAAB J 29 B "Tunnan" from FLY 32023. FLY has released "Tunnan" in B and F versions and I managed to get both of them and both will be shown here. For this model FLY has also released masks to paint cabins (artm32011) and wheels (artm32014) which I also have. This is a quick in-box of the kit.

  21. Beautiful looking both 305's, great work and mine are waiting in line to be built.
  22. Work in the cockpit is almost finished, I have added missing cables and wires. With the clocks I made the base from YAHU and added some elements from EDUARD sheet. I also made the sight glass. Now I have to close the fuselage and start further construction.
  23. The cockpit equipment continues. After the belts it is time for the clocks. I have got not only the company kit but also the EDUARD plate and YAHU Models kit. I have chosen YAHU kit and added some EDUARD parts to it. Now I am putting everything together.
  24. The EDUADR kit comes with tinted pilot stripes that you have to ink yourself on the reverse side. I have to paint them on the other side so that after forming I don't have a bare sheet of metal. The seat cushion is a bit more fun as I had to glue it with a piece of plastic to the right thickness and then, like with the belts, also retouch it with the right color. Such a small detail but how happy.
  25. I laid the primer and then continued the work. I wanted to make natural looking exposition marks in the cockpit, so I painted the places where there would be bruises and scuffs in the same color as the primer and then applied a coat of hairspray and then the base color for the interior. I used the hairspray so that the base color could be easily used to make paint chips on used surfaces.
