  1. John R, Thank you! The screen glider could fly over any surface: snow, earth and water. It needed space, so it could not go around obstacles sharply, it was designed for fast, direct travel. The comb-over devices in front of the wings are the air jets blowing under the wing. There was another engine in the nose for blowing air. In the stern (garrotte) was a marching engine.
  2. Thank you colleagues for your attention and appreciation!
  3. Alan P, Thank you! Used all sorts of model plastics and sprues... Martin, Thank you! Yes, such a machine existed and flew very well. )
  4. Greetings, colleagues! I present another homemade model from the range of experimental screen-planes of Alekseyev design. Painted with GSI Mr.Color urethane acrylic, Tamiya lacquer, + simple pencil. Pleasant viewing.
  5. Spitfire31, thank you! Flaps and rudders cut out. Colleagues, thank you for visiting and appreciating!
  6. Greetings, comrades! I open this year with the namesake warhorse, which in the final stages, gave me a few surprises in the painting and skinning. But let's not speak of sad things, the tasks have been solved more or less successfully and Thunder has proudly taken its place on the shelf. ) The aircraft (86th FS, 79th FG USAAF, Italy, 1944) (''The Trojan Warhorse'' code X65). I will list some of the manufacturing and refinements: - cockpit and mechanics of the shifting canopy, - visible part of the engine, - exhaust systems, - outboard tank with catches, - bomb pylons, - niches, struts, fore/aft landing gear flaps, - BANO, keel BANO, traffic light and headlight, - RAP, - cowl "collar", - flaps, - antennas, - separated rudders, - stripping and different riveting, - machine guns, - forekill, - tail "cooler"(? ), - hinges and all sorts of hatches. Glazing - Sword, wheels - from Evenger, bombs and bazookas - Revell, decals - Eagle Cal. Paint and varnish with brushes: GSI Mr.Color urethane-acrylic, PC88 acrylic, Tamiya lacquers, futura, +plain pencil. Enjoy the view!
  7. Greetings, comrades! A new addition to the shelf and one of the iconic planes has been painted. I think there is no point in telling about the kit, it has been known to many people since the old days, it looks fine to me... Since the decals in the kit were fictional, I decided to train in painting by choosing a prototype I came across a long time ago. Model modifications: made cockpit, door, sight glazing, finalized engine cowl (intake, machine guns, flaps, coupler, nozzles), finalized propeller, made landing gear recesses, finalized struts and wheels, made PVD, swashplates, BANO, aileron and tail loops. Painting: GSI Mr.Color urethane-acrylic, Tamiya lacquer, futura, +plain pencil. Decals from kit. Enjoy the ride!
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. Thank you very much colleagues for visiting and for the feedback! Sorry for the late responses, I don't visit the site often...
  11. 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!
  12. Comrades, thanks for visiting and for the feedback! Always happy to showcase something interesting... )
  13. 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! )
  14. BerndM, thank you! Sky Keg, thank you! I guess the translator is not quite correct(!?))), I think Val is exaggerating my modelling abilities... )
  15. Bertie Psmith, thanks for the review! This is my first WW1 model... ) Brandy, thank you!
