  1. Good morning everyone… My first RFI for the year. I present to you my 1/72 Eduard MiG-21R based on the MF kit. The Recon pod is Eduard Brassin resin, the wingtip SPO-3 antenna’s are scratch built. This was built in the MiG-21R single type group build. Bort #2111 was received from the factory in the USSR in 1972 and served until retirement. She was one of 36 R-types used by the Polish Air Force. Pictured alongside my 2nd RFI an EA-18G Growler from the Hornet STGB. Yes they're the same scale. Please feel free to visit my build thread. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235105935-polish-mig-21r/ Dennis
  2. Hello everyone … Seeing as my Cessna build is now in a holding pattern (decals). I thought I would throw my next two high wing builds into the mix. If you’ve listened to me chat over the four years I have talked about a Polish Air Force collection. Not quite the oldest planes in my collection that honor goes to a Nieuport and Albatros D.V In 1920’s Polish A.F. markings. For the P.7a I will be using the Arma kit. And the P.11c is the Azur kit. Please feel free to ask questions, post comments or add thoughts. Dennis
  3. Built this one OOB.I did no add anything extra.The great eduard kit.It fits almost perfect making this a quick build.Paints used are gunze.The varnishes are vallejo and ak.
  4. On holiday this past week so managed to complete another model. Been wanting to build one of the Polish Tiger Meet F-16's for quite a while now, so I got on with it & started the kit earlier in the year. The kit is my go to, for any 1/72 F-16 subject. Goes together with no problems & has a few extra parts for different variants. For the conformal tanks I used the Attack Squadron resin items. These had to be heated & bent to fit the fuselage as they were a bit banana shaped out of the box, but I eventually straitened them out by running scolding hot water over them, which did the trick. Also I knicked a Sniper Pod from the Tamiya kit. The F-16 I've got planned for that kit hasn't been seen flying with one! Everything else was out of the box. I ordered the Model Maker tiger masks for it as they had elements to cover the conformal tanks, but the only parts that stuck were the stripes for the underside & thankfully the Tiger heads on the tail fin, which worked perfectly. Everything else i used Tamiya tape, drew then cut out by hand using tracing paper from the masking set as a guide. I had to use a seperate Model Maker decal sheet for for the markings & stencils, which also came with markings that were applied to the intake & exhaust blanks so I thought it would be a crime not to use them. The blanks also hide the rough innards of the crude Revell intake & featureless insides of the kit exhaust. Paints used were from Ammo Mig. Thanks for looking Martin
  5. Hello Straight from the ‘60’s NATO Group Build. This is a Bilek 1/72 Mig-21 Fishbed “D”. It is in the markings of the Polish Air Force circa 1967. This was the 2nd build for me in that group, the first was an F-102. I will post that later today or tomorrow here in the RFI. Heres a link to the build if you're curious. If you have any Questions, comments, or jokes feel free to post. Dennis
  6. Hi guys. I want to show you my latest build, it´s Kinetics 1:72 F-16D in polish colors. Poland operates a total of 50 F-16C/D, two of them as instructional airframe for ground crew training. The F-16D Jastrzab, Hawk in english, was special painted in this discreet scheme for the Nato Tiger Meet 2011. The Kinetic kit fits well but got not the same quality as Tamiya. I used some extra stuff from Attack Squadron (nozzle, wheels, sniper pod), Quickboost (seats) and Decals from Techmod. The model is mainly painted with Gunze Colors. Daniel
  7. I'll be building the new Kitty Hawk release of the Su-17 Fitter which will be built as a Polish Air Force Su-22M-4 from 8.elt. I have ordered Model Maker decals and I have the Hataka paint set specifically for this aircraft. I also have some Armour wheels, Master pitot set and a few other bits n bobs but I'm not sure what will be used yet.
  8. Hello to all! I'm back with a Mig-29G of the Polish Air Force (ex Luftwaffe) based on Malbork Air Base. Academy kit with much scratch & extras: Neomega resin cockpit. Aires wheel bays, airbrake and exhaust. Brassin wheels. Eduard photoetched set. Dream Model brassed pitot. Quickboost antennas & sensors. Techmod decal sheet. Finished with Gunze & Tamiya paints. Hope you like my Fulcrum! Cheers from Rome, Italy.

  9. Here is my take on IBG's recent release RWD-8 kit. An initial trainer rather like Britain's Tiger Moth, the parasol-winged RWD-8 was made by two manufacturers, DWL for the civilian market and PWL for the military and civil markets. The main difference, sfaik, is in the undercarriage, and the kit helpfully includes both types. The components were quite fine and hard to remove without breaking but overall the build was quite intuitive and went well. The decal option was a little disappointing (a single rather drab civilian flying school example rather than the military version illustrated on the box) so I did some research online and found a crashed example, serial 34-73, which I was able to mock up using my spares box. The Polish chequers on the rudder are undoubtedly too big and the underwing letters/numbers are a litle ropey but passable if you don't look too closely. Overall, a nicely-moulded kit of an attractive little aircraft and an enjoyable build.
  10. These images (amongst the thousands I have) were taken at the Polish Air Force Museum in Krakow in the Fall of 2002. It was a private tour (it helps to speak Polish) but I could use assistance in identifying the aircraft and if they are replicas. I spent most of my time on the WWII - Modern exhibits and picked the staff's brains for those. Aviatik C.III (is it a replica?) Regards,
  11. These models are made up of the Airfix single seater MiG-29A and the Heller two seater MiG-29UB. The build of the aircraft was not modified from the kit, and the decals are from Caracal Decals. These decals are superb and the fit of the parts to make up the circular decal on the spine were brilliant. Any comments are welcome. I am not sure what happened with the last couple of pictures, I think that the battery in the camera was running low, so I will try and get some more when the battery has been recharged.
