  1. I picked this up at SMW back in November so it's a quick build for me getting a biplane done so quickly. I didn't think the RNAS had Dolphins but there are two mentioned in Sturtivant and Page's Royal Navy Aircraft Serials and Unit 1911 -1919 and this is one of them. Finished as C3785 based at RNAS Dover in 1918. Completed out of the box and brush painted with Hu103 Cream for the doped linen and Revell Olivgrun for the PC10. The grey is Xtracrylix Camouflage Grey. Transfers, including the sharkmouth from the kit. Nice build and nice detail on one of the first multi gun fighters.
  2. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Kovozávody Prostějov Ilyushin Il-2M, built with the addition of Quickboost guns and pitot tube. Painted with Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. This is a re-box of the Smer kit with new fuselage and some small parts. Parts are well cast with good engravings, and fit is okay. I replaced the kit's gun barrels with resin parts from Quickboost (QB72182). The QB set also includes the pitot tube, which is missing on the sprue. KP also overlooked the prominent rudder horn on the fin. I made a replacement from stretched sprue, dipped in white glue to form a 'drop' shape. I fabricated a sling seat for the rear gunner from a piece of photo-etch. It's barely visible behind the defense gun: I was not too happy with the kit's decals. Maybe I should have stored them in a cooler place (my flat gets hot in summer). Silvering is evident on close-ups. The delicate aiming device in front of the canopy is a photo-etch piece stolen from an Eduard Set for the Tamiya kit (there's two included!). Here's my home-made rudder balance which is missing in the kit. In this close-up, you can see the Red Star decal broke when I gently pressed it into the recess. Weathering on the undersides was done with artist oils from Winsor & Newton. ... and here's his squadron mate from Black See Fleet, which I built in 2019 when the KP kit was released: Thank you for your interest! Best greetings from Vienna, Roman

  17. My entry will be the Kovozávody Prostějov 1/72 Piper L-4 with Brodie Hook. The Brodie landing system was a method of landing light aeroplane devised by James H Brodie, a Captain of the United States Army Air Forces during World War II. The method of landing involved catching a hook attached to the plane with a sling which itself was attached to a cable. The idea was the system could be fixed to small ships and also proved useful in landing aircraft in normally unsuitable terrain, such as the jungle or in mountains, and also afforded good camouflage. The aircraft used Piper L-4 and Stinson L-5 light observation aircraft. The following video on Youtube give you some more information. The box. The rear of the box shows the marking options, I am taken with the Yellow-Orange trials version. Won't be able to start for a while as I need to progress my entries in the Bristol Airplane Company and French Fancy GBs.
  18. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Kovozávody Prostějov Lavochkin La-5 from 4th GIAP, flown by Y.Dimitri in summer 1943. I painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, decals are from the box. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. This is the updated version released by KP in 2020, which differs from the original 2015 boxing by finer surface details. The pitot tube was replaced by a piece of steel wire. I also replaced the tail fin antenna with stretched sprue. The sharkmouth was problematic to apply as it did not want to conform to the engine cowling. I had to use copious amounts of setting solution, pressing the decal onto the surface repeatedly with cotton buds. I was still left with some slight wrinkling. Thank you for your interest, best greetings from Vienna! Roman
