  1. It was in late 2007 when a new chinese brand called Kinetic released its first kit a new tool 1/48th Republic F-84F Thunderstreak (link) with the appropriate reference number 4801. This kit was later reboxed twice by Italeri in 2009 and 2011 (link). Kinetic is soon to re-release this kit under new ref. K48068.

  4. Good day! F/A-18 Hornet in colors of the Blue Angel squadron. It's only mater of taste of course, but in my mind this elegant fighter jet looks moore impresive in this color scheme. As for the model. It's my first experience with the Kinetic kit and i'm absolutely sure it's the last one from this manufacture. The only part with good fitting it's cabin, all the other...; - Two halfs of the fuselage, upper and bottom have a different lenghts. If make a suggestion that the model was developed using 3d modeling with CAD systems, so it's mystery for me, how it's may be. - Intakes.
  5. Hallo again This here is my third Kfir in 1/48. For cutting extra fine resin parts I use the US-cutter. So I can get out every resin part. For sawing I use japaneses saws, which reduce the volume of chips to 20% of the 100% to normal saws, you are used to have or we comonly buy. The first was an Italeri with a conversation set from Isracast several years ago
  6. AV-8A Harrier USMC (K48072) 1:48 Kinetic via Lucky Model The Harrier is an iconic (in the truest sense) example of what was possible when British Aviation was at its prime. It was a revolutionary design back in the 60s, and has seen many improvements and even a complete re-design in the shape of the Harrier II, which saw McDonnell Douglas get more heavily involved, giving the US Marines their much beloved AV-8B, and the British the Gr.5/7/9, all of which had new carbon-composite wings, massively upgraded avionics and improved versions of the doughty Pegasus engin
  7. Since today (May 6th, 2012) the Lucky Model website proposes the Kinetic 1/48th Northrop F-5A/CF-5A/NF-5A Freedom Fighter kit (ref. K48020) as pre-ordable. Kinetic being closely related to Lucky Model, such advertisement indicates usually a very soon release of the kit.

  10. F-104J/F-104DJ [2in1] Starfighter JASDF (K48092) 1:48 Kinetic Model via Lucky Model The Starfighter was another of Kelly Johnson’s advanced designs, although some might argue that at least initially it wasn’t one of his best. The initial design had problems with the ejection seat, which fired downward in early models, but its original remit was a high-altitude interceptor so that wouldn’t really have been an issue in all but the most extreme situations. When its role was widened this became a greater problem, as did its relatively high landing speed and comparat
  11. Hello Everyone, 8th October is celebrated as Indian Air Force Day. 2020 was the 88th Air Force Day for the IAF. I present the Mirage 2000 to commemorate this day. The Mirage 2000 was upgraded by the Indian Air Force and was re designated as Mirage 2000I. The kit is from Kinetic in 1/48 scale and is built Out Of the Box. The build is simple but Kinetic hasn't mentioned much in the instructions about which parts to use for the different variants which can be modeled from one kit. So you will need to refer your references for the particular version you will be building.

  13. Hi all, Here's my just finished Kinetic 1/48 Starfighter, which I have done as a Dutch RF-104G, using the boxing released for the Dutch market, and a Daco Orpheus pod. The markings come from a Dutch Decal sheet, and some from the kit. It's a very nice kit, and I thoroughly enjoyed building it. One small thing that needs to be fixed in the kit, is the missing centreline pylon, though. The kit comes only with the twin AIM-9 launchers for the belly, but all the options in the first release, and this boxing are for strike squadrons, which do need the centreline pylon for weapons. I got

  15. Hello, Here's my Kinetic 1/48 NF-5A in Royal Dutch Air Force markings. I started this kit in november last year, but it was put on hold for a while because I was waiting for some rocketpods that I wanted to put on the wings. Sadly, fate wouldn't let me have these, so I opted for some recycled Hasegawa Mk.82 Snakeyes instead, that I turned into inert ones. These kits came with a mold flaw in the clear parts, and the wingtip fueltanks are identical, not mirrored like the real ones. I emailed to Luckymodel, and they provided me with correct parts for a small fee. The instrument panel
  16. Hi Guys, Here is my Kinetic NF-5A, a nice kit but it requires some tlc! And some extra work is required to make it more like a real NF-5A, since the NF differed a bit from the the standard F-5. The LEF's needed an extra "edge" at the widest part, the ECM knobs on the tail differed in height on each side(and are of a different shape), and the cockpit IP needed a so called "Roller map", a system attached to a Doppler radar which consisted of a paper map, and a couple of other small details were added. I chose to give it the so called "zebra" scheme which some of the NF-5's recei
  17. Hello Britmodellers! Here's one of my lockdown builds, made for the In The Navy groupbuild. It's the Kinetic 1/32 kit (reboxed Academy) and one of the best jet models you can get. This one's mostly out of the box except the cockpit (Avionix), seats (Aires), chaff buckets (F4dable Models) and armament, which is a mix of Wolfpack (GBU-38) and Trumpeter (GBU-12). It's a really attractive two-sided scheme with the flag on the airbrake, excellent decals by Flying Leathernecks. I used Xtracrylix paint for the main scheme and Colourcoats
  18. Hi folks My latest build is an F-5B in 1/48 scale from Kinetic. -The kit shape is good but to me it was a little challenging in some parts. -Colors are Hataka and Gunze painted free-hand. -Decals are from Print Scale. -Resin ejection seats are from Wolfpack Design This aircraft entered in service with the Imperial Iranian Air Force in mid 1960's and the IIAF became the first Air Force to receive Freedom Fighters. The two-seaters were in high demand in order to train new pilots locally. Hope you enjoy Barzin 2020_06_14_IMG_8080 by Freddy Pilot, on
  19. Hello all, Here is my recently completed 1/48 Kinetic Su-33 Flanker D of the 279th Fighter Aviation Regiment, Russian Naval Aviation, on board the Admiral Kuznetsov circa 2016. The kit itself is very nicely detailed, but be warned the instructions are dreadful! Extras used included a Quickboost seat, New Ware masks, J's Work camouflage mask and Master Pitot tube. Paints are from Mr Paint (MRP-199 Su-33 Light Blue, MRP-200 Su-33 Dark Blue and MRP-201 Su-33 Grey) and weathering was done with a mixture of oils and pigments. The build thread is here

  21. After months and months of searching (basically since the aircraft was released for DCS in 2018,) I finally was able to get my hands on this beauty! Of course, the "bug" needs no introduction, currently flying for a number of foreign Air Forces. I apologise for having already started her before starting this thread, but the excitement was too great!
  22. Hello folks, The Tornado has just cleared the bench, I started a big beastie: Kinetic Flanker D. Some friends warned me this kit was a pain in the sub-tropical regions, some others told me it was a breeze, I had to see by myself. So. Paints are from Mr Paint. The cockpit details have been done using Posca ink pens. The instrument panel was a bit more entertaining: first a coat of laquer white, then Tamiya acrylic black. The instruments were masked with disks of tape (I love my DSPIAE circle cutter), then the panel was
  23. #1/2020 Let the new season begin! Kinetic kit, needs some filler, a molding issue appeared on the left side of the tail fin in the area of the leading edge. The tip tanks are one piece parts and molded both the same way, to say both for one side and not differently molded for different sides. Some work to make the "wrong" one fit, you may see it on the frontal pic, the tip tanks have a slightly different tilt. Used a resin seat from the Wolfpack edition of the Kinetic kit. Decals for the main markings from Print Scale, not that bad but took a while to losen from the carrier paper a
  24. After the IIAF T-33 is finished (gonna post it in RFI tomorrow), my father starts the next IIAF project. Because it still takes some time until the first ever 1/48 decals for an IIAF F-5E are released by Hi-Decal, we decided my dad should do an imperial F-5A using the Kinetic kit with Printscale decals.

  25. Last of my three recent finished models is this F-16 aggressor of the US Navy from the Eduard (Kinetic) kit. Difficult kit to build but looks the part when finished! Paint job was fun to mask too! I used AK paints for this build. Thanks for looking! Chris
