    Polish Fokker E.V

    Yes, I used the decals I've painted the sides near the hub with a mix of Ochre and Red from Abteilung 502 oil paints.

    Polish Fokker E.V

    Thanks @Fin! Thanks @Ted! Thanks @JanuszPL! About your questions: 1. The kit fits very nicely, I didn't use any putty at all. The one difficult thing is conecting wing with the fuselage because struts are thin and delicate and also the "fitting squares" on them need to be a little bit reworked to fit the wing properly. This wasn't very difficult, though, but demanded some careful work. 2. The decals for propeller covers like 95% of it. It is necessary to paint the sides of wood near the hub. You have to find the proper colours by yourself. For me it was first time too All the best Stan

    Yes, they come with the kit. In Expert Set there is a medium photoetched sheet with wheels, guns and some other useful details. Stan

    Polish Fokker E.V

    Hi all! I would like to present my latest build. It is a quite new Arma Hobby's injection kit of Fokker E.V (Expert Set). The kit is really nice and Cartograf's decals can really do the job! This is a special build for me because Stefan Stec is known as an author of Polish white'red checker which is the official Polish aviation insignia. In 2018 it will celebrate its 100th anniversary! Time for gallery Stanley

    PZL P.11/I

    Thank you all for kind words. I'm glad that P.11 prototype caught your eye! Arma Hobby have so many to offer in that topic! RESIN 1/72: PZL P.1/I PZL P.1/II PZL P.6 PZL P.7/I-1 PZL P.8 PZL P.11/I + INJECTED PZL P.7a All of them worth their money And, of course, it's not their last word. Cheers Stan

    PZL P.11/I

    Hi Martin! Yes, this is 1/72 Thx for a good word! AK paints were quite good. There was no problem with application but I think it is necessary to use dedicated black base from XTREME series. I'm not sure how would they work on some other primer. Anyway after paiting they were easy to polish and hard to damage. I'd give them thumbs up. Cheers

    PZL P.11/I

    Hi all! Here is my latest work, and so far the only one this year It is a first prototype of famous Polish fighter PZL P.11. The prototype was marked as P.11/I, was left in natural colour of metal with differential shading clearly visible. Model is from great resin kit produced by Arma Hobby. It's really neat and building it is simply great. They have almost whole line of "PZL's" in their offer, check their site if someone is interested. Anyway, I hope you will like this rare bird Painted with XTREME METAL colours from AK-interactive. Cheers! Stanley

    PZL P.7a (Mastercraft 1/72)

    Few years ago the new P.11 was released by Azur. It is a quite good set, but still needs some work. Who knows, maybe someone will release new tool P.7. Now when 3D printing is getting more popular maybe there is a chance. I hope so Thanks for comments! Stanley

    PZL P.7a (Mastercraft 1/72)

    Thank you guys for kind words! I'm glad you like my P.7 For me the best thing is that it will go to the family of fallen pilot. It was really inspiring during the build. Cheers Stanley

    PZL P.7a (Mastercraft 1/72)

    I think I have sorted out the pics problem
  12. Greetings! Here is my latest build – PZL P.7a from very old (but only available) Mastercraft kit. Model was made in memory of pre-war pilot named Leonard Haber from the 112th Fighter Squadron of 1st Air Regiment from Warsaw. On 23rd of April 1934 he flew on training mission (sharp shooting) over the Rembertów area. Same time in the air there was a training flight o seven PWS-10 fighter led by lieutenant Kołodyński. Because unfortunate coincidence Haber found his self on the collision course with those plane and didn't know about that (it was sunny but foggy day). He collided with the last PWS from the formation which was piloted by Stanisław Ziółkowski. Both planes were destroyed in air and PWS caught fire. Both hit the ground with huge impact. None of the pilots tried to rescue on parachute. The model will go to living relatives of the pilot. The kit required a lot of scratch work. The fuselage was totally reshaped. Wing were sanded and re-scribed. Cockpit and engine was made in full scratch. I've painted in with Gunze acrylics. Cheers Stanley

    Grumman F6F-3 Hellcat

    Thanks alot guys! I'm glad you like it Chipping was made in very simple way. Firstly I've covered whole model with Alclad Duraluminium, then painted the camouflage and gently scratched the chips with sharp scalpel. It's a good and easy method which can give nice effects. Cheers! Stan
  14. Hello there! I would like to present my recent work which is Eduard's Hellcat build straight from weekend edition box US Navy is not my main topic but from time to time i really enjoy building something in those colours. Hellcat was a usefull build for experiments and to train some techniques which were new for me. Hope you will like it! Cheers Stanley
  15. Hello all! Today something completely different for me. My main topic is polish aviation but there is a new series called Wrzesień 1939 (September 1939) branded by "First to Fight" and I couldn't resist and had to take them to the workshop. Every number contains a vechicle model from polish defensive war era. Magazine is released every 3 weeks and gives you Polish and German armour in turns. Quality of models is very good, especially for that price (about 4 British pounds). If you want to know more about it, check out producer website http://www.wrzesien1939.pl/en/ Here are miniatures of polish armoured cars wz. 34 I and wz. 34 II in 1/72 scale (about 5 cm long). One is equipped with Hotchkiss heavy machine gun and second carries 37 mm gun. Hope you will like them With the rest of the family Cheers! Stan
