I have picked up this 1/144th Mark1 boxing of the twin seat Starfighter. The box contains two kits and has decals for a Danish CF-104D, and a Norwegian TF-104G which will be my second subject choice for the Group Build. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
Hello everyone! Here is my FE Resin 1:144 Mikoyan-Gurevich I-250 (MiG-13). This was a mixed-propulsion fighter design with a piston engine and an air reaction compressor jet or motorjet that first flew in March 1945. Only 12 pre-production machines were built and an initial order of 50 MiG-13s was placed. Trials were carried out until April 1948 when the design was cancelled. This kit represents a pre-production machine used for tests by the 176th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment of the 324th Fighter Aviation Division, PVO, from October 1946 onwards. This machine was also tested by the Soviet Naval Aviation at Riga from October 1947 to April 1948. I built this tiny resin kit in 2009. I added a seat in the cockpit. The main undercarriage parts and the propeller had to be replaced from parts taken from my spares and sanded to shape in the case of the propeller. The canopy was a vacform part. I also added the radio mast and wires and the wing probe from stretched sprue. The kit was fully painted and varnished with brush. Thanks for looking Miguel
Dear fellow modellers, I've started new "mini challenge", a Revell 1/144 Alpha Jet. Kit itself has a slight issues with correct shape (especially tail is "banana" shaped) and canopy is too thick - to be replaced with vacuform part. I won't deal much with inaccuracies, rather it will serve as a practice for glossy finish Let's start with wings: Clearly, some touch ups are needed on left wing. And still not sure if mixed blue color isn't too dark (on photos definitely, otherwise it's not that dark). Next, horizontal stabilizers: I've also glued fuselage together and applied putty. Waiting to fully cure before proceeding. Will keep you updated Best Regards, T
