  1. Hi guys! Here's my next project, Italeri's Mirage IIIE with aftermarket decals to paint it as an Argentinian machine. The decals I'll be using are Condor Decals 48054. The Italeri kit comes with the extended fairing for the empennage as a not for use piece, but I'll use it to make this kit as a IIIEA. I'll be painting this aircraft as I-007. I'll also be my first three coloured camouflage aircraft. Paints to be used will be RLM 79, 71 and 70 for the upper surfaces, and white for the lower surfaces. I'll be picking up the kit this Friday, so pics of the contents will be posted on Friday's afternoon. Photo of the real machine. As you can see, it doesn't have the yellow rudder shown in the profile of the decal sheet.
  2. Hello guys, while I wait for the last parts of my 109 to dry, I decided to take the first photos of my first 3D printed model: Kosmosur 3D's A-4B in 1:72. The model came with decals from Calcas del Sur for a bare metal or camouflaged aircraft. Here's a photo of the model. More photos soon. The brown patch was painted by me to test if the paint would stick to the surface.
  3. Decided to revisit the first Argentinian aircraft I built (2018). Originally, the slat bays were painted in RLM 02 because I didn't have red. Photo of the real aircraft. You can also see that the inner portion of the flaps were painted in camouflage colour:
  4. Hello guys! Today I received this awesome kit, Kitty Hawk's DB Super Etendard in 1:48. As you can see, the box is full of plastic, most of that plastic is dedicated to the weaponry and fuel tanks. A small photoetch fret is included with the kit. Because I don't have a very good experience with Chinese decals, I bought two sheets from Calcas del Sur for the Kinetic SuE, but I assume they'll work just fine with this kit. Anyways, I hope to be able to post regular updates for this kit (I haven't seen many build reviews of KH kits on the internet).
  5. Hello guys, this is my first Kitty Hawk kit and, in spite of some fit issues and big ejector pin marks, it won't be my last. I'm eyeing their T-6/SNJ Texan to build it as an Argentinian aircraft. This SuE kit was the alternative to the scarce Kinetic model. The decals I used, from Calcas del Sur (48001), were very good, absolutely no issues when using them. They're a good alternative to the Aerocalcas and Condor Decals sets. Here are the photos.
  6. Hello guys, It's been a while since I posted anything. Today I bring you this A-4AR Fightinghawk of the Fuerza Aérea Argentina. It wears the scheme of the 100 years of the FAA.
  7. Hello to all of you good people. I present you my finished Pucara in 72 scale. The kit itself is really bad and requires a lot of work to be finished to a satisfactory level. I upgraded the seats a bit and left the rest as is.The paints used are gunze and Tamiya. The decals are OOB and were a real pain to apply. Really thick and did not respond to the usual chemical threatment.I also made a YouTube video build and if you like you can watch me how I build it form start to finish. Regards,Dragan https://youtu.be/cMoB44z5ENY
  8. I'd like to start my first WIP to share my progress with all of you here on this project, inspired by Moggy and hgbn's threads on their builds of this classic plane. Slowly but surely, I've been building up my collection of the types that fought in 1982, and I knew at some point, the Hasegawa Neptune in 72nd was a must. My intention is to model the famous "2-P-112" aircraft in the following scheme, and try to replicate the war-weary finish of these birds that flew sorties until they gave up the ghost: Last week I started re-scribing and riveting the entire model, to varying degrees of success. I also intend to correct some of the kit mistakes as pointed out by Moggy in his superb thread, and since add my own scratch building or 3D printed parts in certain areas. The fit is quite good for a kit of this vintage! The tail has been rescribed and riveted. You'll note my scribing needle punched off a piece of the hard Hasegawa plastic (and punctured my index finger in the process ). I'll take care of that later on. Nose wheel well enlarged and moved. This area still needs loads of work. I'm unsure whether I'll build the new interior from styrene sheet or just bite the bullet and design a new drop-in well in Fusion and print it. Testing the interior fit. Quite good! I've cut off the center console and will be adding my own 3D printed bit there. Work on the interior was very fun and not too hard once you get the hang of Fusion, especially since most cockpit elements have simple shapes. Some interior and detail bits printed out: Instrument panel and side consoles, assorted radios/gizmos, yokes, seats, flame holders for the jet engine pods, flight deck/observer seats and a hydraulic tank (?) for the main undercarriage bay. I'm quite proud of the seats actually, they are very delicate and a great improvement on the kit's seats, IMO. That's all for now! I've got some more days of sand-scribe-putty-sand-rivet sessions. Thanks for reading
  9. Hello guys, I want to build Special Hobby's IA 58 Pucará. I know it's a short run kit, so I was wondering, what are the major issues of the kit (fit etc...). I remember building Airfix's rebox of the SH kit a long time ago, but I can't remember if I had issues building it. Thanks!
  10. Hi to all! Here is HobbyBoss 1/72 F9F2 Panther in colors of Argentina. On kit are used Quickboost aftermarket, nose, wheels, wheels covers and jet pipe. Painted, weathered and washed with Ammo Mig colors. Thanks for watching! BR
  11. Hi to all! Here is my latest finished job and this is first time posting my job on this forum. So, model is Airfix A-4B Skyhawk, 1/72 scale and in Argentina colors. It's wonderful Airfix kit and it's pleasure to working on it... Take a look.... Thanks!
  12. Hello guys, it's been a while since I posted in the forum. Here's a photo of my latest model, Trumpeter's F9F-2 Panther in Argentinian colours. I used an Aerocalcas set, 48005, to get these markings
  13. Hello guys, I finished my Super Etendard yesterday. I used Revell acrylics and a brush to paint the model.
  14. Hello guys, it's been a long time since I posted a WIP. I'll be building the most recent boxing of Academy's Super Ètendard in 1:72. I'll be using Aerocalcas's 72004 decal sheet to make this SuE as 3-A-202. The aircraft will be painted with Revell acrylics, with EDSG for the uppers and white for the lower surfaces.
  15. Hi all, Thought that I would share some pics with you all of one of my latest completed models. Built as part of the ongoing (and excellent) Corsair STGB it is Hasegawa's 1/48 F4U-5NL built as an aircraft operated by the Argentine Navy during their 1963 (unsuccessful) revolt against their government. Still a nice kit to build despite getting on a bit it does have a few issues but nothing drastic. I used an old set of FCM decals and they performed very well indeed and certainly seem to be accurate to the pictures I have seen. Enough waffle here are the pictures; Thanks for looking and as usual all comments and criticisms are gratefully received, and for those of you wanting to see any more here is a link to the WIP. Craig.
  16. Hello guys, here's my latest model, Hobby Boss's Mirage IIICJ with the markings of the Fuerza Aérea Argentina. I used Condor Decals decals for the insignia.
  17. Hello guys! After nearly three months without scale models to build, I was able to snatch this one from a Facebook seller, Hobby Boss's Mirage IIICJ in 1:48. I won't be using the kit decals, I'll use the ones printed by Condor Decals (of Argentina). The final scheme will be of a Mirage IIICJ based at El Plumerillo Ait Base, Mendoza, 1986. Here are the obligatory box, sprues and decals shots:
  18. Hello... I greet the community from Argentina. I see that I joined Britmodeller in 2015, but I never wrote anything... I can assure you that I'm not a ghost! ^ ^ I am a lover of everything that has wings produced between 1919 and 1939... I am also very tempted by the WWI planes, and the beautiful curves of any time (of some planes too). Although the interwar world is usually silvery with some well-documented colors, being a ghost can sometimes be very convenient at the moment of interpreting lost livery in b/w. I embrace this hobby from the scratch, drawings, and some projects that revolve around them. My English is very bad, so I apologize in advance. If the subject be up to my knowledge, and I have time, it will be a pleasure to participate in Britmodeller. Saludos Matías
  19. Hello guys, this is my latest project, Hasegawa's 1:48 F-86. It was an awesome kit to build, without issues.
  20. Began another Airfix kit last week. This one has really thick spruegates, so some parts ended up with some damage. Box: Sprues (the clear one is not pictured): Decals (I'll paint the Argentinian flag instead of using the decals): First assemblies. In order to reduce weight, I cut off the exhause of the exhaust pipe and glued them to the aircraft (not pictured). More photos soon.
  21. This exquisite little gem from the works of a one-man-in-a-room enterprise in Argentina is a refreshing and beautiful piece of the local aviation history. With a super-clean cast, delicately mastered parts, and fine detail, it is up there with the best in resin releases, and no doubt a product at the very top of cottage industry. If you compare this resin kit with most of what you see in the market (and I have built -and still have in the stash- many), you may feel the urge to trash some of the ones lurking in your stash, which compare extremely unfavorably with this one. The kit portrays a small training plane built in quite large numbers -that is for a country with an aviation industry that had its ups and downs-, that went into the civil and military market, being provided to the local aeroclubs as a way to encourage aviation by the government. It started as a pre-war endeavor, but had to wait until the 50's to be built in series. It still flies today, in some remarkable numbers, which says something about the design and construction, especially given the constrictions many times suffered by South American countries. This is not a kit for the beginner, and it's better if you have built a couple of simpler resins before, but it's a very noble kit, that requires of course care, a delicate touch, and some skill (as the kit box itself states). This release offers alternate parts and decals for four different machines. The decals are home-made and can be used, but Arctic Decals has printed a more professional set. I found no defects, whatsoever, in any part. Some of the detail parts are tiny and require mindful handling. The engineering is very sound and the approach intelligent. It took only a few days to build it, even in parallel with several other projects, but it's a build that you don't want to rush, given the delicate detail and small parts. It made for a short and pleasurable build, as you can see in the WiP: I wish other cottage industry manufacturers will take the hint and up their game. This kit demonstrates what skill, care and love for the hobby can do, even in less than ideal conditions for the maker. So next time you get one of those resin blobs, with pinholes, bent parts and dubious (if any) detail, here is a bar to compare against. Waiting now for the next kits that are soon to be released by this able, dedicated and meticulous manufacturer. Fantastically done, 72Topia!
  22. I finished the Corsair today, and there wad enough light in my room, so I was able to take some photos of the finished model. The canopy didn't fit at all, it's too narrow in the end and just hangs above the canopy railing. I also lost one of the gun mounts, and had to fashion a new one from one of the pieces.
  23. Hello guys, here's a glimpse of what will be my next model, an F4U-5 from the Argentinian Navy in 1:48, the kit will be Hasegawa's F4U-5N with parts for a night fighter, but also for the daylight fighter. I'll use Phoenix decals as the only aftermarket. I bought two sheets in case one fails me, but both sheets look ok. All the options are for daylight aircraft, which carried a Light Gull Grey upper colours and white undersides, together with white landing gears and wheel hubs. Click the follow button if you'd like to see how this build goes!
  24. I had bought this kit in a discount from Dukel Hobbies, they were selling it with aftermarket decals and the paints for 2500ARS, cheaper than buying the kit and decals from Hannants. Finished the Canberra yesterday. The kit has some issues, such as the huge gaps when attaching the wings, the wheels that don't have a positive fit on the main landing gear, the cockpit floor that is warped, etc... The only thing I don't like about how I finished it is the demarcation line on the nose, I painted it with different lengths on the right and left sides, and it sorely shows. Anyways, here are the finished photos: You can see ny mistake by comparing this photo with the right side of my model:
