  1. Greetings, comrades! On the "rubber" shelf has been added!) A Frenchman with Finnish nationality from the EaseKit set. The kit, by the way, is quite acceptable. Slightly reworked of course, couldn't resist. And so, what's done: redesigned a little the cockpit (the lantern is thick, you can not see much), corrected the geometry of the nose of the bonnet, finalized the propeller (the geometry of the wingtips and cannon), finalized VZ etching, made a bonnet sight, back and under the fuselage antenna, finalized the tail, the tail guard (restored the lost and cut the unfinished one), riveted, finalized the landing gear recesses and struts, manufactured the landing gear flaps, finalized the ski rear support crutch, manufactured the headlight, wing machine guns, the airfoil. Painted with brush and sponges: GSI Mr.Color urethane-acrylic, PC88 acrylic, Tamiya lacquers, futura, +plain pencil. Enjoy the view!
  2. Colleagues, thank you very much for the feedback! I've loved FROG-NOVO kits since childhood and will try to keep building them in a new hypostasis. I am currently working on the Republic P-47D Thunderbolt.
  3. Thank you very much colleagues for visiting and for the feedback! Sorry for the late responses, I don't visit the site often...
  4. Martin1962, thank you! No special paint has been applied. I mixed the shades of paint myself, looking at the photos. Shorty84, thank you! Yes, all the modifications are homemade... Linus, David Womby, colleagues thanks for the feedback!
  5. Comrades, thanks for visiting and for the feedback! Always happy to showcase something interesting... )
  6. A decree of the CPC of October 24, 1940, was issued to promote the aviation industry in a sporting direction. The country not only had to develop in the military and civilian spheres, but also to achieve heights in sports and racing competitions. In the first half of 1941, plant №1 named after Stalin, along with testing and debugging production combat MiG-3 were tested and two converted machines for sports. The engine was reworked to increase speed characteristics, which in turn resulted in minor modifications to the cowling fairings and air intakes. The weight of the aircraft was also reduced by removing an extra tank, radio equipment and weapons. To improve manoeuvrability, ailerons and elevator bars were experimentally fitted with additional bumpers. Slight changes were also made to the cockpit. But the sporting achievements could not come true, because the war broke out. Due to the difficult situation on the outskirts of Moscow, the decree of the GKKO No.741 dated 8 October 1941 and the next day it was ordered by the NKAP No.1053, which ordered the immediate evacuation of the plants. In this connection, in October 1941, plant No.1 was evacuated to Kuibyshev to the territory of plant No.122. Production of the MiG-3 was also transferred there in the first instance. That was the period when the traces of these flying machines were lost. As the country needed every warplane, most likely they were returned in operation and they have deservedly served the Motherland... P.S. This is what if...? (An alternative story woven into the real one. ) Thanks to our colleague Dmitry Lebedev for the "real photoshop", photo and sidebar! ) Painting and varnishing: urethane-acrylic GSI Mr.Color, acrylic PC88, varnish Tamiya, futura, + simple pencil. Enjoy the view! )
  7. BerndM, thank you! Sky Keg, thank you! I guess the translator is not quite correct(!?))), I think Val is exaggerating my modelling abilities... )
  8. Bertie Psmith, thanks for the review! This is my first WW1 model... ) Brandy, thank you!
  9. noelh, in this case, in relation to the model, it implies different small detailing on the fuselage, wings and tail. Also, different hatches and trim elements, antennas, etc...
  10. In this model, fabricated: -Pilot and operator cabs, -Propellers, -Nishties, struts, struts, wheels and landing gear flaps, -Imitation of wing mechanisation, -Rocket rails, -Light landing lights, -Keel BANO, -All kinds of antennas, -Exhaust nozzles. Of the modifications: -Cockpit lights, -BANO, -Burner, -miscellaneous air intakes, -Radar, -Cab, -Deflector hinges and linkages. Painting and lacquering with brushes. Paints: GSI Mr.Color and Mr.MetallColor urethane-acrylic, PC88 acrylic, Tamiya lacquer, futura, +plain pencil. Enjoy the view!
  11. wood and fabric effects are first class. Having scratch built an H-B CC flying boat I know how tricky the star strut arrangement can be to get right - you have got it just right. P Colleagues, thanks for stopping by and for the feedback!
  12. Colleagues, thank you so much for the visit and feedback!
  13. Greetings, comrades! Trying to embrace the immensity, and building models of different times and directions, I could not avoid the theme of World War I. In the closet was only this set, though the car without a lot of swings, but quite interesting. I mixed a few cans of wooden paint and a couple of canvas paints (two of which were already done). I assembled some material and literature, had some practice and experimented, built the model rather well and without too much effort. Had to putty of course, and work up, how-ever without it ...) The plane belonged to (Flik 41J, pilot Frank Linke-Crawford, Sežana, autumn, 1917). Painting and varnish: GSI Mr.Color urethane acrylic, Tamiya varnishes, + pencils. Enjoy watching!
  14. Colleagues, thanks for the feedback! Bertie thank you! Great video! Yes, I really like screenplays! )
  15. Greetings, comrades! Many have assembled and built this helicopter, some according to the manual and some quite interesting conversions. Out of the box is too easy for me, so I present my tuned conversion. The stealth technology, in my opinion, doesn't fit at all to the helicopter and is difficult to apply in essence. So, this model I perceive as more maneuverable and high-speed. And since authorship and Kamovtsami and Zvezda denied, renamed by own. Now on work on model: The cockpit was not finalized, I simply planted pilots. Took off all the surface shagging from the model, puttyed up almost all the patches and rivets. Cut new grouting in slanted style, which led to development of brand new camouflage scheme (called "Labyrinth"). Into the nose section, made a sighting station, refinished the gun barrels. I added ASO blocks, input and output devices of VSU, antennas, sensors and wipers. Reworked wingtips. Pylons from other kits and guns not by fenstyle. We paint and varnish with brushes. Paints: GSI Mr.Color urethane-acrylic, PC88 acrylic, Tamiya varnish, Futura. Enjoy your viewing!
