  1. Evening All! I attended RIAT last year and saw the incredible display from the Ukrainian Flankers. As soon as I saw the scheme I knew I had to do it. Luckily, Foxbat do decals and paint masks for the Ukrainian digital scheme. The Academy kit was used as the base and I added the Neomega cockpit, canopy from Yufei (haneto), Quickboost nose and traffic cones, Aires exhausts, DAN models FOD covers and the NorthStar Models towbar. I decided to do it as it was at RIAT 2017 with the famous blue cones. Overall, the Academy kit wasn't too bad, however with the amount of AM I had added, blending everything in took many attempts. The nose cone was too large for the kit and the canopy took lost of blending (I'm sure it was down to my poor cutting of the canopy and not the mould!) I aded the blind flying hood to the canopy from stretched sprue and tissue paper. The scheme was painted with the AKAN Ukrainian digital camo set, however I found most of the paints to be way too dark and had to be lightened extensively. In the end, the scheme was actually quite easy to paint after having a couple of arguments with the masks. The NorthStar models towbar was great and fell together. I think it's a nice addition to the scene. Here's a few photos. Hope you all like.

  2. So you took the plunge and got one! This is looking really exciting. If you need any spares (extra tailplanes and the like) I can bring whats left on the sprues of mine to the club one night for you to rummage through. Looking forward to seeing how this one progresses. 'Typhoon' Phill
  3. Thanks everyone! Jean, I used Vallejo model air for all of the RLM colours including the yellow. Undercarriage and the spinner are Tamiya acrylic.
  4. Cheers Mark, I've got the 1/24 Tamiya rally pit crew as my ground crew. They're pretty much the closest you can get to WW2 RAF overalls in 1/24 but will probably need a little fettling and putty to remould certain features.
  5. As a massive Star Wars fan I was delighted when Bandai started doing these kits. Loved putting the kit together and posing it exactly as I wanted. Hope you like.

  6. Another one of my recent builds, this time it is a Bf 109E-3 of 9/JG3 in France 1940. It came as a profipack and is OOB apart from the marking being painted with Montex (told you I was converted). The fit on this kit is supreme and it pretty much fell together. Only place you have to do some fettling and dry fitting is around the engine cowling and cannon area.

  7. Long time lurker on here so I thought I'd post up some of my recent builds. Here is my 1/24 Typhoon that I recently finished. Whilst it was a marathon build, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Additions are the Airscale instrument decals, HGW harness, Master Models rockets, Eduard wheels and cannons. All markings were painted using Montex Masks. This was the first time I had used them but I've got to say I'm converted! Hope you like.

  8. Here's a few photos of the Frogfoot I've just finished. It's done in the colours of the Czech AF airshow 'Frog' colour scheme. All of the spots on the aircraft were sprayed freehand. Sorry about the photo quality, they were taken on my phone. The model is currently packed away as I'm in the process of moving.

  9. Having played DCS A-10 quite a lot, I have come to hate/fear/respect the Shilka and it's annoying buzz on the RWR. So when I saw this I relished the thought of making one. It went together really well and then I went to town on the weathering. This is the first model I've posted on here (been lurking for a couple of years!) Hope you like.

  10. It's your choice mate. Just adds another twist to the story of your diorama. Thanks for the welcome, I've been lurking on here for probably a couple of years but just haven't posted anything up till now.
  11. In that case don't bother with it. I also had that explanation in my mind aswell. I'm not in the business of making more work for people because I know what I'd do if I were in your position...
  12. Just read all the way from the start of the build and I think its amazing. I really like the variety you have achieved with the 3 P-40s. I can believe they are the same kit!. One small thing that you can have a think about... On the new aircraft, would the tiger heads be free from exhaust stains as the aircraft might not have been flown since painting them on. This could definitely be the case with the one on the right hand side as it is still a WIP.
