  1. KP Mil-8/17 kit with scratchbuilt cockpit armour and winch and KP decals. Two Mil-8s were used to train Afghani crews but have now been disposed of. Steve
  2. Kovozávody Prostějov (http://www.kovozavody.cz/) is to release a new tool 1/72nd Avia S-199 kit - ref. M72?? & M72??. Source: http://modelweb.modelforum.cz/2014/06/09/kovozavody-prostejov-novinky-cerven-2014-2/?lang=CS Two boxing. Release expected June 2014 V.P.
  3. VPAF Shengyang J-6 (MiG-19S 'Farmer-C'), '6066', 925st FR, Noi Bai, 1974 Shengyang J-6 was the Chinese license built version of the MiG-19S 'Farmer-C'. Even if MiG-19 was the first supersonic fighter to go into mass production - it is overshadowed by it's predecessor and replacement. One reason is because it had quite short life span, just filling the gap between MiG-17 to MiG-21. Even if it had better performance than it's US counterparts - for example MiG-19 had superior rate of climb when compared to F-100 Super Sabre - the type was plagued with all kinds of technical problems,
  4. Joining in this GB, if I may, with a couple of entries - first being the 1/72 KP Mil-4 Hound. I developed a fondness for this aircraft after a visit to Moscow and a ramp tour around Chernoye re-work facility with two of the beast lying around in a state of dis-repair! Have had the kit a few years and its not a bad shape in my opinion. Uniformly moulded with indented panel lines, possibly a little bit simplified around the numerous vents holes, grilles, ports etc . Will be a well used military example and the decals look OK for a few option plus I have a set from Hi-Life to give a load of other
  5. Recently completed as part of the P-51 Mustang STGB is my interpretation of a Mustang III using the 1/72 KP kit. Built mainly OOB with the addition of some DIY belts and a DIY vac canopy as I like my subjects to have the canopy open. Painted with a mixture Tamiya, AK paints with the main scheme being Colourcoats enamels. Kit decals with the markings of 133 (Polish) Squadron, RAF, Coolham, 1944. Build log here: Stuart
  6. Hello, I didn't find any topic via search function about, so delete if already available. Here are first pics of the new double seater CS-199, with is coming in October (if I am correct, coz my czech is not that good). http://www.modelarovo.cz/avia-cs-199-172-rijnova-novinka-kp/
  7. Next Kovozávody Prostějov kit is a 1/72nd Letov -20. Release is expected in late September 2014. Source: http://www.modelarovo.cz/letov-s-20-azmodel-master/ The box art and more V.P.
  8. A relatively quick build for my doing (under two weeks!) of the old KP Avia that I found in an online auction. No build report or anything, just a fun model of one of those kits that I always liked but never got around to actually building. It was nice to open the mail and see that awkwardly stapled box with the thin cardboard lid and the colourful (albeit somewhat yellowing) boxart. Finally I have one! Basically it was build OoB, but I just had to add some extra detail. It received a cockpit interior, a radiator interior, a new rudder and pitot tube. Also the undercarriage was shortened
  9. Hi all, First completed model in three years. Following on the heels of many here, I've decided I need to tackle my shelf of doom box of unfinished bits. Here's the first completed resulted. I gave up on this two years ago. It's the KP kit, which was also boxed by RV Aircraft, the KP variants coming with no resin bits or photoetch. And as I discovered, the KP kits come with much poorer quality decals - they're suitably thin and go on well, but the majority of mine were massively out of register and the stencils are completely overscale. The bort number and squadron award dec
  10. Hi Here is my latest build - P-51B by KP. Flown by John T. Godfrey This is OOB build so you would probably notice a few things - a big one is missing pylons. All Mustangs are suppose to have 'em but KP for some reason decided to not include it in this kit but sell separately. Well, not a nice move, KP. Paint - Tamiya acrylic
  11. Hi All. Decided to put my 2p's worth in here with KP's offering of a Mk.III Obligatory shots: Sprue 1 Sprue 2 Options for three aircraft and closed canopy, pity. Do we look at these... Three options. Haven't decided yet but I'm leaning away from yellow/ black spinner as getting that right scares me, so it's either D-Day or not. Haven't researched any of this, so I don't know about kit accuracy and I've never built a KP kit. Stuart
  12. Kovozávody Prostějov (http://www.kovozavody.cz/) back with two 1/72nd Zlin C-205 & Z-226M kits - ref. M7201 & M7202. Source: http://modelweb.modelforum.cz/2014/04/11/kovozavody-prostejov-novinky-duben-2014/?lang=CS V.P.
  13. Aero Vodochody L-159A ALCA (Advanced Light Combat Aircraft) 212 Squadron, Czech Air Force Caslav Airbase, Czech Republic, 2019 (Still haven't worked out how to centre photos!) My inspiration for this one came from an air show in Slovakia this year where two of these arrived at an incredibly low altitude (way below what would be allowed in the UK) and put on a spirited display complete with flares. This is the 1/72 KP kit built from the box except for some added detail on the ejection seat and some Sidewinders and launc
  14. Hi all - first post here, and thought I'd do something a bit different: This was great fun to do...conventional model painting rather went out the window, and I used mainly homemade decals drawn with dip pen and acrylic ink. This was inspired by a real life aircraft in Katowice, of which there are plenty of photos on the usual sites, eg: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/5788170 Seeing as I bought the KP 3-pack, I think I'll do a clean one next!
  15. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's the new KP Ilyushin Il-2M, a re-box of the Smer kit with new parts added. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Hope you like my result, best greetings from Vienna! Roman
  16. Another Zlin completed. This time, it's an early type of the whole line "x26". It was really relaxing and fast build without upgrading the model or correcting the kit. I made just a few small necessary upgrades. This Zlin flew at nearby airfield - Olomouc Neředín, that's why I chose it I hope you'll like it, enjoy. Cheers, Andrew S
  17. How unwise would be of me to pretend even the most superficial knowledge on this machine, given the fact that this report is presented in the land where it was born. What else could be added to what have been said about the excels beauty and the graceful lines of this design, or the feats accomplished by it. I will just add that because of my unquenchable love for this plane I have built a number of DH88s, from Airfix ancestry and from the beautiful and exquisite resin cast offered also in 1/72 by the Hungarian firm S.B.S. Model: SBS Model models:
  18. Here comes my newest finished model - the Hillson Air Baby from KP. I started this build in October, thinking of fast 'n' easy build, but I was sooo wrong. The kit is quite tricky to complete and I added some trickness with detailing and upgrading the kit. I like the Czech colours and markings but the British silver-blue Hillson is my favourite. My friend helped me with the new code letters, which have now right shapes and dimensions - Thanks Pavel! I did my best and I hope you'll like the result. Cheers, Andrew S.
  19. Hello everyone, Further to my "Three Spitfires against Japan" post from December I present another KP 1/72 Spitfire Vc Trop! This time the model depicts BS201 ZP-Q of 457 Squadron RAAF as based at Livingstone Strip south of Darwin in 1943. This particular aircaft had a long career with 457 from the end of 1942 until early 1944 when it was damaged in a landing accident and subsequently converted to components. Flight Sergeant John R. Jenkins was flying BS201 when he scored one of his two confirmed victories on the 28th of May 1943 over the advanced airstrip at Milingimbi 270 miles (
  20. KP (Kovozávody Prostějov) is to be congratulated for their increasing line of very appealing civil subjects, bringing refreshing variety, color and a different, more uplifting scene to the modeling continuum. I have been aware of this little cute monoplane since more than ten years ago and I compiled information on it with the purpose of scratching it, so I was very happy when KP released it in a couple different boxings. This is a nice kit, fairly priced, that will only require some cleaning and adjusting to render a nice model. For the more adventurous and those with access to deca
  21. Another beautiful little kit from KP to add to their increasing line of refreshing, attractive, and significant civil planes. The Praga E114 was conceived and built in Czechoslovakia during the mid and late 30s and developed into a whole family of two-place, side by side sports and touring planes with changes in the power plant and details regarding it’s control surfaces, landing gear and glazing, among other minor modifications. There is abundant information on the Net for this one, should the modeler wish to look up for details and background history, as well as -for the more adven
  22. A build from more than a year ago of a cute little kit of nice quality, with many livery options. How refreshing and pleasing is to see manufacturers releasing civil subjects, and more so when they are significant, appealing and colorful. Congratulations to KP for this little nice kit with multiple livery options and a good level of detail. The kit needs attention in a couple places, but otherwise builds well. I liked the lines so much that I scratched its somewhat different predecessor, the Avia B.H. Exp. Here t
  23. Here's my KP 1:72 Yakovlev Yak-23 "Flora" Yellow 16, of the Polish Air Force, in the early 1950s. This was one of the original boxings of this kit. I built it very much OOB in 2000. Thanks for looking Miguel
  24. Hi peeps, Here are my last completions for the year - a trio of 1/72 Spitfire Vc's all depicting subjects used against the Japanese: First up we have the Sword kit depicting SEAC based MA292 KW-D "Verna June II"of 615 (County of Surrey) Squadron RAF as flown by Flying Officer "Lawrence" Weggery RNZAF during 1944. Mostly OOB although I used the Rotol prop and wheels from the Tamiya kit further down and the cannon barrels and stubs are by Master. Paints are Humbrol throughout: Next up we have Dar
  25. I know Tony O'Toole has done this one in 1/48 but I've fancied doing one in 1/72 for a while and, since I've found some suitable SAAF B-type roundels, I'm going to give it a go. Here's the profile: and the kit I'll be using: The sprues, in the bag: and out of the bag: I've made a start, by clipping the wings: because KP give you the bits for the clipped wingtips: and painting some bits with Humbrol 33: You have to remember which holes to drill for the cannon bulges: I'll be assembling a
