  1. Hi comrades! My build of Classic Airframes kit is approaching the painting stage And now, my question is: how the prop was painted? In different references (mainly profiles, so I'm not really sure about them) the prop is painted different: solid black, black with thin white line, red and white, blue with white line... Which one is true for start of 1943 when BW-393 had temporary winter camouflage? Thanks a lot for help!
  2. Hello everyone... I present to you Finnish hawk CU-581. Quoting @vppelt68 the history of this plane is. The model was built in the Nordic Group Build. “CU-581 was an ex-French AF plane, bought to Finland in 1943 and assigned to Lentolaivue 32 in July 1943. Written off in November 1944 - though the plane was already destroyed by AA-fire 24.6.1944, while strafing Soviet landings in Tuulos on the Laatokka. Kapteeni Veikko "Vede" Evinen, CO of 3./HLeLv 32 and a six kill ace, died of his wounds the next day.” There isn't much to say beyond that. Sad to know the pilot lost his
  3. Hi, Beriev MBR-2 was one of the most numberous small flying boat of WW2 and the basic such machine in Soviet Union. This type apeared in 1930. initially with open canopies and M-17 engine, later (as MBR-2 bis) with pilot cockpit closed, a closed turret, added flaps and redesigned tail as well as M 34 engine The Avia/Eastern Express kit of Beriev MBR-2 bis looks in box very promising. However after careful look and comparison with drawing and photos some flaws became obvious. Among them the most important are too deep and unrealistic parts of wings and tail covered by fabric and too
  4. Hello All... I would like to present my Finnish Air Force Bf-109G6 MT505 from 1950. I am of Finnish Descent and am happy to finally have a representative model of my ancestral home. I also have a polish Mig-21 that is complete, and a PZL-23 waiting to be built. The colors are Dark olive over grey the White stripes(not the band), are indicative of participation in war games. Here is the WIP for the model. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235052872-my-finnish-“mersu-”/ I would like to thank @vppelt68 as this kit was a gift. I photographed the build on
  5. Hi folks, this is the brand new SBS Model kit I picked up at the Moson show and built it over past couple of weeks. It's resin kit with etched and white metal parts, all done to high quality we have come to expect from this company. It was pretty much straightforward affair except few joints here and there to be addressed with little putty, but nothing really excessive for a resin kit. I replaced the markings for O.Tuominen machine (1/LeLV46, autumn 1941) and followed the coloured profile and pictures from Finnish Fighter Colours book by MMP. Maybe not every scratch or paint t
  6. Just received my pre-order copy of this booklet: Yep, that's a 2€ coin there. The subtitle says "Messerschmitt Bf 109 G in the Finnish Air Force" and that sums up nicely what this book is all about! Larger than A4- format, 400 pages, 479 b/w- and 6 original colour photos, 24 colour plates by Karolina Holda and Thierry Dekker, 32 line drawings in 1:72 and 1:48 scales. All the plane histories, kills and losses... What am I doing writing all this, I should go reading! Available in Finnish, of course from here http://www.koalakustannus.fi/kirjat/kirja.php?id_prd=233 V-P
  7. Hi there. I've recently started this kit and thought why not share it. This is one of MPM's boxings of the DC-2. The kit has been released under various options, and I chose the Finnish one as the serial code is the same as my initials. This kit has also been built there. http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/Gal11/10601-10700/gal10630-DC-2-Attard/00.shtm First up box art, which doesn't show the one I'm doing. As this is basically a short run kit, get ready for a lot of planning/test fitting/filling/sanding. You get 3 plastic sprues, a sprue with clear parts and a bag of resin and PE. The
