  1. Next Kovozávody Prostějov - KP (http://www.kovozavody.cz/) 1/72nd kit is a new tool North American P-51B/C Mustang - ref. Source: https://www.facebook.com/SAMEditor1 V.P.
  2. Lavochkin La-5F, 126 IAP, Cpt. Petr Nikiforovich Beljasnik, July 1943 - Kursk area Kit: KP Lavočkin La-5F "Esa" (KPM0175) Scale: 1/72 Paints: Vallejo Model Air, Vallejo Metal Colour Weathering: Tamiya weathering products, Vallejo weathering products, New tool La-5 by Kovozávody Prostějov is rather nice kit. Some fiddly parts inside the cockpit but other than that quite delightful build with good details. Decals were bit brittle, but they went down very well with the help of Vallejo Decal Fix & Softener. Painted with Vallejo M
  3. Hi. A couple of weeks back I mentioned that I was thinking of entering a Mig-17, but had a problem with decs. Well I have ordered a sheet but have yet to decide on exactly which version and country. This is the kit, an old KP one issued in 1974. Since then a number of other Mig-17 kits have been entered, but I guess that is hardly surprising as this plane, like the Mig-15 on which it is based, is robust, relatively easy to maintain being Low Tech, has a decent performance and was of course relatively cheap even when purchased new from the former Soviet Union, and even c
  4. 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
  5. Hi all I have just finished this little kit, a nice kit but I didn't fancy the kit options so did one I liked from an image search on Google. The kit is quite a nice kit, although I had to add some bits of my own. The bracing between the struts and the wings, the mirror, the chin spoiler, landing light aerial mount, rear visible framework under the tailplane rudder actuators and aileron actuators. Red flashing beacon and mount and the Exhaust were also scratch built. Rigged with invisible thread and brush painted with Humbrol enamels, the black pinstripes ar
  6. 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!
  7. Photo from Clintonville Public Library (Clintonville, WI) In 1939 the Four Wheel Drive Auto Company (FWD), a major manufacturer of four-wheel transmissions and heavy-duty trucks based in Clintonville, Wisconsin, opened a flight department and traded a company truck for a Waco biplane for their company's use. In 1944 company executives decided to start an airline named Wisconsin Central Airlines, and service began between six Wisconsin cities in 1946. This led the company to buy two Cessna UC-78 Bobcats, and, soon after, three Lockheed Electra 10As. In 1949, the familia
  8. 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 boxings. Release expected June 2014 V.P.
  9. Hello all Finished alongside the IL-14 Last week (I build in batches) is my MiG-23UB. On first looking into the box the moulding and detail looks quite reasonable. On closer inspection it became apparent that other than the pitot there were no aerials or probes supplied with the kit!. Why???. Regarding the build the fit was poor and the decals were out of register. The front wheel guard was too small and was discarded. I made the aerial and probes on the nose from brass and plastic card. The seats are from Pavla. This was the first time I’ve used Blutack worms for a five co
  10. 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,
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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/
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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:
  24. 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.
  25. 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 (
