  1. A new Clearprop Model project, Baykar Bayraktar TB2 plastic injected kit. Source: https://www.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=3286542031628273&id=2155509878064833&m_entstream_source=feed_mobile See also Big Planes Kits (BPK) similar project thread: link V.P.
  2. Hello! Let me show you the assembly of a recent novelty from the Ukrainian company Clear Prop Models: the model of Turkish UAV Bayraktar TB.2 (kit catalog number CP72034) in 1:72 scale with Ukrainian identification marks and beautiful cormorant on its nose. In addition to the kit, I used the Clear Prop Models CPA72087 masks and photoetched set. First things first, let’s see what’s inside the box. Sprue A contains the main parts of the airframe. Sprue B/C contains all the other parts needed for assembly. Interesting is that the front landing gear strut is provided in two variants, thus you can choose a simpler, or a more complex, but more detailed option in case you have purchased the PE kit for this model. Some parts from this sprue are not required, they are there because the kit is unified for various series of the drone. The assembly guide shows all the above clearly. Transparent sprue This sprue has two different types of suspended equipment. Only one of them is required. The second part is for the other modification Decals There are three cormorant options. One is given as a single decal, the other two are divided for easier application. Moving on to assembly. To be honest, I have never worked with such a simple model before. Minimum parts, excellent jointing, comprehensive sectioning. The assembly guide is clear and simple, all the stages are described in details. I will show you the main stages of the assembly. I have detailed photos of this drone that helped me to modify the front landing gear niche: Don’t forget to put weights in the nose. The guide requires 1 gr. I've put 0.4 gr. and this is more than enough for the stability of the model. I replaced the main landing gear struts with scratch metal ones. This is the only way to ensure sufficient strength of these parts with correct scale thickness: I haven’t painted them so they have natural metallic color. I also modified the nose gear strut with PE and other materials: Then I worked on the suspended equipment and bombs: Nothing to tell on the fit of parts. Everything goes together perfectly: For the base paint I used Mr.Color paints. Unfortunately, there is no ready-made color solution, so I had to mix the color myself. I used the following recipe: Mr.Color 308 - 75% Mr.Color 73 - 25% The prototype has a pronounced glossy finish. But taking into account the scaling of gloss, I used Mr.Color 181 semi-gloss varnish as a topcoat. I would also like to highlight the main decal of this kit: Despite the complex surface, the proper division of the decal helps to fit it onto the model easily. But in my opinion, softening liquids for decals are mandatory. These were the main stages that I would like to focus on. If you are interested in seeing the assembly in more detail, please follow the link. Here is the final result: My conclusion: I can recommend this model to all modelers interested in the topic of drones, as well as to those who simply want to build a high-quality model quickly. The concept of “weekend model” fits this kit like no other. Personally, I'm pleased with the result, although I made a couple of minor mistakes. I am sure that this drone will not be the last in the manufacturer’s line of models, you may follow the news on the official Clear Prop Models page on Facebook. Thank you for watching.
  3. Greetings! In this blog I will try to cover in detail all the assembly stages of the new ClearProp kit - Bayraktar TB.2 1/72 scale. I have detailed photos of this drone and therefore I plan to make various modifications into the kit. Unfortunately, I can't show these photos publicly for security reasons, so you won't be able to compare the modifications against the original. Nevertheless, I think that this assembly will still be interesting for you. Let me show you the kit in detail first. Sprue A. Sprues B and C. Transparent parts. Decal I also plan to use ClearProp kit # CPA-72087 with photoetched parts and masks for this build. I started the assembly with some modifications to the front landing gear niche. The kit provides a schematic imitation of landing gear strut retraction mechanism. The niche itself is assembled from two kit elements - parts B25 and B34. In fact, the top wall of the niche on the Bayraktar is structurally absent. If you look into the landing gear bay from below, you will see the inner surface of the top airframe skin. Therefore, I removed the top part of the niche, leaving only the area where the strut is attached. Further, considering the photos I imitated various rods and mechanisms, wiring, blocks of equipment, which can be seen through the front door of the niche. It looks like this: As for the weights, I’ve put 2 pieces of lead, approximately 0.4 grams. I can say it is more than enough for the stability of the model. As you can see on the photo, I modified the attachment area of part B17 in such a way that the part B33 will be glued on the final stage of assembly. This way it will be much easier to assemble and install the "ball" of the hardware unit. To be continued.

  11. I guess most of us modellers prefer good, old piloted aircraft, but, like it or not, UAV or drones are here to stay and we will see more and more of them. However, I am a bit perplexed by the apparent success of relatively slow propeller-driven drones in recent conflicts like the now famous Bayraktar TB2 in the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan 2020 and currently against Russia. Another case are the (supposedly) Iranian drones used by Houthi rebels against high-value targets deep inside Saudi Arabia. I can understand that slow, propeller-driven drones (like MQ-1 and MQ-9) were effective when used over Afghanistan where there was next to no air defence, but I wonder how similar slow UAVs can survive against (ostensibly) more sophisticated air defence systems like those of Saudi Arabia or Russia. Of course, these drones are small and made from composites, but they are not that tiny. In addition, I wonder why the data link connecting the drone to the ground station does not seem to be vulnerable to jamming. Can anyone shed light on this matter?

  13. Bayraktar TB2 Tactical UAS 1:24 Tanmodel The Bayraktar TB2 is a medium altitude long endurance unmanned aerial vehicle/unmanned combat air vehicle developed for the Turkish Armed Forces. They class it as a Tactical UAV in order that it is not seen as a competitor to the Turkish Aerospace Industries Anka UAV. The vehicle has been jointly developed by The Kale Group and Baykar Technologies. The UAV can fly up to 22,500 feet and loiter for more than 24 hours. In trails it reached a record 27,030 feet with a full payload. As well as sensors the unit can be armed with the ROCKETSAN smart micro munition, The UAV has a blended wing/body design with an inverse V tail, and a rear mounted pusher engine. The structure is primarily carbon fibre the machined aluminium parts. There is a triple redundant flight control system with autonomous taxi, takeoff, cruise, landing and parking capability. As well as units produced for Turkey Qatar has signed a contract for 6 units. The Kit This is a new departure for Tanmodel but as they are a Turkish Company it is no surprise to see them working with Turkish Industry to produce a model of this new UAV. Indeed the scale is reported to be the choice of the industry partner. The kit even though 1.24 scale is not too large, it arrives on 4 sprues of grey plastic with a clear spure & a display stand. A good inclusion for the kit is a full size clear spure Construction starts with the rear mounted engine, The radiator is built up and installed in one half of the engine casing, the rear bulkhead with the engine face has the propeller and spinner attached and this is also inserted in the half of the engine casing, Once in the casing can be closed up and put to one side. Construction then moves to the inverted V tail. The sides are put together then the A shape at the top is made, these join to form the tail. Once together the tail booms can be added. The wings are they made which consist of upper & lower halves for each side. These sub assemblies are then put to one side. The sensor ball is the made up with decals providing the sensor surfaces. This is then encased in its turret, and the turret then mounted into the main fuselage bottom half. The turret can fully articulate once in place. The tail booms and tail are then added to the main upper half of the fuselage along with the wings, following this the fuselage can be closed up. If you are going to have the model freestanding then 15 g's of nose weight will be needed. The engine casing can the be added onto the fuselage. Next up the missiles and their pylons are made up and added to the airframe. The landing gear is now added. The nose wheel has a conventional gear bay where as it looks like the mains stay fixed. The wheels are well detailed with brake hubs on the wheels. If the modeller wishes the UAS can be displayed on the excellent stand contained in the kit. Decals The decal sheet is small as they dont carry much in the way of markings. Mainly national insignia and a company logo. 4 different serial numbers are available. There is no idication of where they are printed, but they look to be in register with no issues. Conclusion Without the participation from industry its doubtful this kit would have come to market. However I am informed its been selling well in home market and abroad where sold. It is definitely something different and well worth hunting down. Highly recomended. Review sample courtesy of
