  1. Good day! Here is my latest work, Kittyhawk's UH-1D Huey in 1/48 scale. The model itself is not as good as Tamiya or Edurad, but it is by far the best one in 1/48th scale. I had some minor problems during the assembly, but nothing that couldn't be fixed. The major drawback are the instructions, so keep that in mind if you want to build one. Referneces and photos are crucial with this build. I have to thank mr. Floyd Werner for all the provided photos and information. Without them, I would be lost. Enough talking, enjoy the pics. Model: Kitty Hawk 1/48 UH-1D Huey E
  2. You are welcome. I hope to see You on New Years Cup in Belgrade this December!
  3. Hi Nikola. Thanks for compliments. So... canopy. I clean it first with mild soap, then polish it with Tamiya rubbing compound (superfine) to make it really shiny. Masking: I usually just take the easiest way and buy precut masks - usually from Eduard. But I also mask the canopy from inside too. For that, I use tamiya tape and make an inside mask a bit larger than outside one. It is a tedious job. Painting: Remember to apply paint in really light coats, don't flood the canopy with paint as it could creep under the masking tape. So slowly build up layers of pain
  4. Well, not really as they come in pretty large segments. Preping the surface before applying them was the most tedious job as the surface needs to be perfect.
  5. Good day friends! Here is my latest work, Oldie goldie P-47D Razorback from Tamiya. Superb kit, no major fit issues. This is the first time I've used HGW positive rivets and although they demand some extra work (filling already made rivetholes on the kit), the result is well worth it in my opinion. I used Eduard PE set, Quickboost engine, CMK resin wheels, HGW seatbelts, stencils and positive rivets. Decals are from Kitsworld, although the insignias were airbrushed. All the paints used are from MRP, weathering was Ammo affair (oilbrushers, washes, dust effec
  6. Hi, here is the model I've completed last year. Tamiya's F-14 with added extras, Brassin cockpit and armament, some PE from Eduard and Furball decals. Painted with MRP paints, weathered with AMMO weathering products.
  7. From brassin range of missiles. It says that they are 9M's on the packaging.... Don't tell me this are wrong. I'm not touching this kit anymore...
  8. Not at all! It's always good to get a comment from an expert. And i actually found that missing tail antenna. Thanks! Didn't know about this either!
  9. Well, this is a mistake, but i guess only a couple of experts would be aware of. I hope you won't be a judge judging this model in a near future
  10. Thanks for poiting that missing antenna. Will fix that. As far as HUD goes, I didn't have the right PE HUD, so was forced to make it from scratch - so i guess it is not 100% correct, but I couldn't do it any better.
  11. Hello, it has been a long time since my last post on this great forum, but life is sometimes just too hectic to build models. But I've managed to finish this one off in under 7 months. Tamiya F-16C block 25/32 kit, with some extras: Aires F-16C/D wheel bays 4439, F-16C cockpit set 4364 and F-16c block 25/32 exhaust nozzle. Wheels are resin ones from wheeliant, armament and bombs are brassin items. I added Master pitot tube and angle of attack probes and HGW RBF tags. Model was painted with MRPaint colors, weathered with ammo products. Enough blabbering, here are the photos
  12. You will love this kit. I've built it a while ago and I've enjoyed every singe minute during the build. I actually wouldn't change the exhausts as they are really good from the box, but the wheels should be changed for the resin ones.
  13. You need a tripod. And You also need a camera with manual settings. I usually set Fstop value to 22, ISO as low as possible (160-200). Exposure time will be quite long because of those settings, hence the tripod. I actually have the remote control mounted on my camera, so it is perfectly still when i press the shutter button. If you don't have that, just adjust the shutter release delay to 10 seconds. I hope I didn't confuse you too much
  14. Hey! I'm really sorry for not posting anything for a while.... I finished Eduard's spitfire with ton's of extras. If you are interested, here is the Build log, but I think you are more interested in seeing photos of the finished build. Some of You might have noticed that this build was published in Meng Air Modeller. Here they are, enjoy!
