  1. Thank you for the reactions! I'm looking forward for the quarter scale version of the kit - please Eduard! - planning to build 2 single seaters and the dual too...
  2. Latest addition to my collection: Avia S-199, 1/72, Eduard kit. Only deviation from OOB are the painted markings. Comments are welcome.

  3. I can only hope for early versions and two seaters... and dream about prototypes in red, blue or yellow...
  4. Any other P.11 version (a,b, f) or a P.24 would be just fine for me in 32nd scale… but the Karas seems more plausible…
  5. Already bought their 11a, 11b (twice), 11g and for sure will have a couple of 11f… I can only hope they will consider the same version on the big brother (1/32); please IBG!
  6. you're right, the outboard pylon has the additional APU-13 adapter for R-3S or R-13 missile; the inboard ones are APU-7 adapters for RS-2US (as on my model)
  7. The modification was done in maintenance facility; I do not have detailed information on how was done but I lean more towards adaptation of the original PFM wing. Same facility performed – again as one-off – same kind of modification on a MIG-17F, by adding inboard wing pylons, somehow similar to Polish Lim’s.
  8. The "fin cap" was most of the time painted the same as the rest of the airframe on PFM version, at least on Romanian ones. The radio-transparent green was specific to latter versions, M, MF, etc.
  9. MIG-21 PFM out of the Eduard kit with some accessories (also from Eduard), slightly modified by adding 2 outboard wing pylons (same type and position as on latter versions, M, MF, bis, etc) it was a one-off Romanian “upgrade”; the plane was in service within Fortele Aeriene Romane till late 90’s. Decals (roundels and tactical number) are from spare box; painted with Mr. Color enamels. Any comment is appreciated.

  10. If I want to use the FM F-4E kit as a base for an F-4F what would be the best choice for wing LE replacement? Will the Revell kit do the trick?
  11. Congratulations for your work and thank you so much for sharing those photos. Sharing the hobby with your father is quite special. I’ve always considered gliders/ sailplanes as a neglected field in the world of scale aeroplanes. Of special interest for me is your Slingsby Type 4 Falcon 3; I’m working on a RC model of this type and was looking for a color scheme – something more than translucent dope; I’m seriously considering yours – are there photos/ books showing that scheme?! I’m only aware of a dark underside view from Martin Simons book. Looking forward for the follow-ups in your collection
  12. Covered roundels are Romanian ones - blue/ yellow/ red - the type of id used before the introduction of the crosses (May 1941) For chipping I'm using same method since starting to weather my models. The corresponding surfaces (e.g. wings, aft fuselage) of the model were first painted aluminium and left to thoroughly dry before applying the camouflage colors. Once the camouflage dry I'm using a scalpel with a new blade to localy remove the colors; using different blade geometry allows you to create various effects. The method works better if the alu substrate is enamel (not the case here, I've used acrylic overall).
