  1. Just finished the Trumpeter 1/32 SU-27UB , its the 2nd time I have built this in this camouflage pattern, it doesn't get any easier. So its an OTB build, the only extras are the static discharge’s, and Quinta studios cockpit decals, I also used Foxbot masking , but as a template then cut mine out of Tamiya masking sheets, and HATAKA acrylic paints enjoy.

  2. Hi thanks for your comments, as I have mentioned in previous post the Client gets what the client as asked for. I understand what your saying. Mike
  3. thanks for the comments I started the build in November 2020 and finished it around January, evenings and weekends, the client decided he didn't like it. so I had it on my shelf for a year, then it got snatched up by a tornado pilot, I just had to finish the base and do the figures, hence the finished pics Mike

  7. This is the 1/32 Italeri Tornado GR4 I made last year, but just got round to getting the base and figures made, ready for her new home, enjoy.
  8. The Boeing F/A-18E and F/A-18F Super Hornet are twin-engine, carrier-capable, multirole fighter aircraft variants based on the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet. The F/A-18E single-seat and F/A-18F tandem-seat variants are larger and more advanced derivatives of the F/A-18C and D Hornet. Let me present to you the 1/32 Revell F-18E hornet, with reed oak figures painted with Hataka paint set.

  11. This is the best F-16 kit out there in my humble opinion, I did use a few after-market bits though, Reset exhaust nozzle, the wolf pack jamming pod, the Aires undercarriage, the main tractor is Aero bonus, and the other trucks are verlinden, and my favourite figure are from Reedoak decals are from Afterburner 64th Aggressor Squadron Mission To prepare warfighters to win in air combat against any adversary. Vision Respected, requested, required air combat adversaries. Lines of Effort Know, Teach, Replicate Personnel and Resources The squadron operates 30 F-16C/M aircraft, providing realistic, threat-representative, near-peer adversary air for high-end US and coalition training. History The Aggressor program began in the fall of 1972 with the activation of the 64th Aggressor Squadron. This program started as a direct result of the high air combat loss rate experienced in the Vietnam War. A professional adversary force conducting a program of intense dissimilar air combat training was identified as the best means to remedy this result. This new training replaced pilots flying the same type aircraft in mock combat at their home bases with Aggressor pilots and controllers flying and employing tactics that emulated the former Soviet Union and other potential adversaries. Over the years the Aggressor Squadrons have flown the T-38, F-5, F-15C, and currently F-16 aircraft. As a result of defense budget cuts, the last Aggressor squadron was deactivated in October 1990 and reformed as the Adversary Tactics Division under the 414th Combat Training Squadron, or Red Flag. After twelve years as the professional adversaries for Red Flag, demands began to exceed the reduced Aggressor charter. The 64th Aggressor Squadron was reactivated on Oct. 3, 2003. The principal testament to the value of the Aggressor program is the consistent dominance of our Air Force during recent conflicts.
