  1. I should probably not start another kit, but where is the fun in abstinence? This summer I had a visit from @Paramedic that gifted me some parts for a AJSH Viggen that I should work a little more with...that one is an even slower build than usual. But anyway. He also brought me a surprise gift in the form of a boxless Lansen! A few years ago, there was a few bagged variants on sale that just contained the parts and nothing else. @Paramedic managed to get some but I didn't even try. Now he wants me to build it! The box, if I had one would look like this This is actually one of the Lansens flying today (hence the reason for both Tarangus and Hobbyboss to have that marking option). It started it's life as a fighter but after being replaced by Draken in that role it soldiered on for many years as a EW platform. Still I don't have the decals for that one, so that goes out of the window, What I do have is this: The kit comes with resin exhaust and ejector seats: Some references: The small book (The enemy in the East) is one part out of three detailing how the Swedish Airforce operated during the Cold war. This book focus on the fighters and their use, the other ones are for Attackers and Recons respectively. Very interesting stuff! Who knew that the Venoms that we used as night fighters during the 50:s were deemed very ineffective as interceptor since it couldn't engage with Il-28 due to lack of speed advantage and serious risks from it's rearward gun turret? The Lansen in the fighter version cam about from the need of having a stop gap all weather interceptor before the arrival of more advanced system (Draken). Compared to the A32A version it got a new much stronger engine (Avon mk47 instead of mk21) 4x30mm Aden guns, better radar and a few other tweaks here and there. With three times the engine power compared to J33, the climbing time to 30000feet was reduced to one third. Top speed and range were not that much better than Attack Lansen though, since the aerodynamics didn't allow for more. 118 of these ones were build, and they served for a decade (basically from 1960 to 1970) before being replaced by Draken. Well, Since I didn't have any decals for it, Moose Republic came to the rescue: There are no resin parts for this kit, but I have managed to scrounge a few metal bits instead! That should keep me busy for a while! Or will it? Probably not, since I've been looking a bit on all sorts of walkarounds and finds all sorts of things that needs to be enhanced in some way or another. Let's fire up the CAD program and start designing bits!
  2. So here's something a bit different. Not from a kit, but it is plastic. Sorry if it's not the right place to post it. A friend at work recently learned to use our 3D printer, and for his first print was a (roughly) 1:72 SR-71 Blackbird. It was made from this model: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2381619 It started out looking like this: I offered to take it home, sand it (it REALLY resisted that!) and give it some paint. It was never meant to be totally accurate, but it was a bit of fun and an experiment into what sort of finishing techniques worked on PLA plastic. A few spare decals later, and here it is, painted up as an M-21 drone carrier (for which I didn't have a spare decal of the correct tail number, oh well): Sorry for the crummy phone photos. Hope you enjoy! Beggsy
  3. I´ve started to model an Avro Shackleton engine in 3D and I´m blogging about it at IPMS-Stockholm If you have any knowledge about the original, don't hesitate to point out any misunderstandings or if you want to follow a 3D project from start to printed model you are welcome!
