  1. I went yesterday to the Museo Nacional de Aeronáutica in Buenos Aires. It was cloudy and began to rain as soon as I got there. The visit was worth it, because I was able to see the two restored IAI Dagger C-432 and the Douglas A-4C C-322. Grupo de Restauraciones Aeronáuticas started restoring the A-4C months after the Argentina vuela 2022 (which took place in the platform of the museum). Here are the photos of the restored plane in its Malvinas/Falklands colours, with a bonus photo of the plane in its post war scheme. Post war scheme: Restored scheme: Bonus question: Why are the engines removed when the aircraft are sent to museums?
  2. Hello everyone, After some time off the bench, I come back with a new model. Well, two, but I'll be making a separate thread for the second one. It's a new 3d printed model from Kosmosur 3d, the A-4P Skyhawk in 1:48. Markings will come from the Aerocalcas decal sheet 48011, which comes with options for A-4P C-214 and 236. I'l be building 214 in Malvinas/Falklands markings, with yellow bands. Here you can see both airframes assembled.
  3. Hello guys, I'm proud to present my third Mirage in 1:48. This is the Italeri Nesher/Dagger, which itself is a rebox of the old ESCI kit from the 80s. That being said, it's certainly a product of its time regarding fit, cockpit detail and panel lines. However, it's a really buildable kit if you pay attention and test fit multiple times before gluing the parts. Cockpit detail was just a tub and instrument panel with decals for the instruments. Panel lines were raised on the fuselage and a mix of recessed and raised panel lines on the wings. The model was painted with Revell Aqua acrylics by brush. Decals came from the kit. Also, some of you may remember my topic on the Cold War jets forum asking for the measurements for the extended triangle of the Italeri Mirage IIIC in 1:32. I'm proud to say I got it moulded for me. So expect a Mirage IIIEA from Italeri in 1:32 in the distant future.
  4. This is my first foray into 3D printed models. I watched a video on how to smooth out PLA plastic with nail polisher, but it didn't work. I used Calcas del Sur decals to make C-207 as it appeared during the Falklands War. Enjoy! Here are both of my A-4s in 72nd, left Kosmosur 3D and right Airfix. I'm now tempted to buy the Airfix kit and paint it as C-207 with its bare metal scheme of 1969.
  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. Hi, next product from my little factory. Hobbycraft 1/48 - edition "Falkland". Added: Aires - cockpit Aires - Wheel bay Canopy - my vacu production MER - Eduard Mk-82 Snakee - Eduard Paint scheme and decals from the box, basis on the authentic photographs of "3A-309"
