  1. Offset Scale Models is to release a 1/48th Russian naval tow tractor resin kit. Source: https://www.facebook.com/Offsetmodels/posts/102451561264857 https://www.facebook.com/Offsetmodels/posts/145126646997348 V.P.
  2. At last I finally completed this offering from Unimodel
  3. Here my early MIG collection. MIG 15 from Tamiya and Revell. MIG 17. Kit, oh I do not remember! MIG 19. Here, the kit I do also not remember!
  4. Su-34 Fullback (KH80141) 1:48 Kitty Hawk The Sukhoi Su-34, known by the NATO reporting name 'Fullback' is an all-weather strike fighter, designed to replace the ageing Su-24 Fencer in Russian service. Despite being based on an existing design (the Su-27), the type endured an extremely protracted development, punctuated by the collapse of the Soviet Union. Eventually, 200 of the type are expected to enter service, replacing approximately 300 Su-24s. There are many differences between the Su-27 and the Su34, principal amongst which is a completely new nose, which ac
  5. Hallo This is my way to get a little distance from modelling aircarft. This famous truck is my first of many. The AAA I also did. In a few days I show you this truck too! Happy modelling
  6. Hi everyone This is my 1/72 S-300PMU by Model Collect. This is my First AFV model so sorry if I refer to parts of the vehicle wrong. This was a good kit, but the instructions were a bit unclear and did not have all the parts listed where they would go. The kit came with two small PE parts which was nice even though it did not say where half of them went. The fit was good on most of the parts even though most of it did not have locator pins for example on the missile tube which made it difficult to get parts in the right place. I struggled with putting the cab on as it did not fit but I th
  7. Hi everyone This is my second su-30sm by Zvezda. I thought I would do a second one so I could correct the mistakes I did on the last one. The kit had nice details and Shallow panel line. I was going to add rivets but I could not find blueprints which h showed them so I only applied some on the metal bit in front of the gun as I could see them clearly in pictures. The kit did not need much filler and went together easily. I saw this camo online and thought that it would be fun to try and recreate. is first sprayed the engine colours before painting the whole model as it was easier than doi
  8. Hi This is my 1/72 MI-24P by Zvezda. This kit has great detail for a 1/72 kit as it had the options for the maintenance hatches to be open so you can see the gear box and Engines. The kit had realy good fit but it was a tight fit with the cockpit and front part of the fuselage. It was nice for it to come with the rotor blades pre bent to the shape that they would be when on the ground. The kit had an option for a dark grey scheme and this camoflauge one which i decided to go with. I used the Hataka Russian helicopter paint set. Panel lines where very shallow and didnt hold the wash i mad
  9. I am hoping that someone here may be able to answer my question on W.W.II Russian Hurricanes that were converted into 2 seaters. I am particularly after info for the rear seat's gun and mount. I've found pictures and a few builds of this aircraft type, but nothing that really gave me some insight into that rear position. What type of gun was used? gunner's seat? how was the gun mounted? If anyone can shed some light on this for me, I'd appreciate it.
  10. Hello guys, here are the photos of my most recently completed model, Trumpeter's Mig 3 in 1:48.

    Su-57

    Sukhoi Su-57 Su-57 from Wiki in English This aircraft I can call the best a/c ever built. After getting details of this a/c and getting through all the properties, this is an accumulation of all refinements of today’s aero-design. Beside the aero-design, the jet propulsion belongs also to the latest developments. The electronic, avionic and weapon technology fulfills every desire you may have today. Why is this development such a glory? Well, the way up to the sky is not a straight one. Very bumpy with many setbacks. The Russians learned. Each design can becom
  12. This kit somehow found its way into my car when I was at Modelkraft Model Show at the weekend. I had never heard of this type but looks rather interesting. First some 'fluff'. The Russian Shavrov SH-2 was an amphibian aircraft in a sesquiplane design that was developed in the 1930's for use as a trainer, fishery protection, patrol and an ambulance. The SH-2 was made primarily of wood and was powered by Shvetsov M-11L 5-cylinder air-cooled radial engine, driving a 2-bladed propeller that was capable of producing 100 hp. Being an amphibian, the SH-2 was fitted with wheels that could be
  13. After reviewing this kit a while back here, I figured I'd give it a go, cos I do rather like these Russian side-by-side two-seaters, and I've not built anything modern for a while. I've built a few Kitty Hawk kits over the years, and found that as long as you test fit and keep your wits about you, they build up into pretty good models. So, with as many wits as I can scrape together, I set about building it, which is nice I'll try to flag up any gotchas so you don't have to find them out the hard way, but there's always a better way of doing things, so I reserve the right to be wrong at an
  14. Soviet Road Signs WWII (35601) 1:35 MiniArt via Creative Models Ltd. If you're travelling unfamiliar roads you need a little help to find your way, which is where road signs come in, and with the size of Russia and the likelihood that most of their troops weren't used to being away from their home villages, it's hardly surprising that signs became more important once the Great Patriotic War began in earnest. This set is full of signs of this nature, and includes military signs to guide their troops to rally points, service areas and so forth as they didn't have t
  15. Hello everyone I'm new here, and I'm already impressed by the worldwide modelling contingent (that I hope include men AND women). Was wondering if any of you can point me in the right direction with respect to finding out the actual uniform colours for modern military Russian pilot uniform? I've carried out a lot of searches online, but to no avail!  My immediate plans are to build a collection of Sukhoi aircraft, commencing with (possibly, haven't fully decided) the 1/72 Su-24 from Zvezda. Tiny figures (bought some from Pavla), I know, but what
  16. These are all old builds, and in retrospect should have been posted at the beginning of these series. They often represent the first, hesitant steps on scratchbuilding. Here is another from 2007, 12 years ago (original text as posted then): The flying parable of Boris Ivanovich Cheranovsky. The BIch 7a is the predecessor of the BICh 14: a twin engine transport, also a parabola wing design, being the 7 a bit smaller (could carry just two comrades). Yes, it flew, having some trouble with the engine but otherwise pretty good in performance. Not much came out of it,
  17. These are all old builds, and in retrospect should have been posted at the beginning of these series. They often represent the first, hesitant steps on scratchbuilding. Here is another from 2006, 13 years ago (original text as posted then): Some times Russians don't make just planes. They make flying poetry. Boris Ivanovich Cheranovsky dreamed about the half-moon gliding on the frozen surface of the lake. And he created a series of planes with a charm that is hard to ignore. The daring design created some stability problems, but most of his planes at least flew, and some t

  19. Sukhoi Su-34 Fullback Italeri 1/72 This is a bit of a blast from the (not to distant) past. It's the first model I built on getting back into the hobby in early 2012. At the time I hadn't really built a model in 20+ years apart from a couple of AMT Star Trek kits in the mid 90's and this build marked a number of firsts for me. 1st time using an airbrush, 1st time using acrylic paints (Vallejo in this case), 1st use of Alclad and 1st time using an after market etch set (although in the end, I hardly used any of it). I was aware that there were a few issues with the kit but I didn't want to g
  20. Hallo again This is the Trumpeter 1/48 kit. I used etched parts from Eduard and stencils from Bregnun. The Su-24 was for me a challenge. I never saw this a/c in real. Yes, most a/c I know in reality, also the old birds. This one not at all. So I had to use just the web and my own feeling. A new and in this case the very first experience to me. No literature I could rely on. Yes, sometimes it is fun, just to guess. Well, finally you may find out if my guess was good or false. Happy modelling
  21. T-18 Light Tank Model 1927 Hobbyboss 1/35 It occurred to me recently that, what with all the Bandai Star Wars kits I've been doing recently, it's been a while since I've done an armour build on here. In fact I think the last one was the SS-23 and that was over a year ago. Time to change that then, and something Soviet and inter-war seems like a good idea. This is the new Hobbyboss T-18, which was the first all Russian tank, albeit heavily based on the French FT. It's a pretty standard Hobbyboss kit, moulded in sand coloured styrene with non-working indi links and a splash of PE. T
  22. The Weathering Magazine - Special Iron Factory Ammo by Mig Jimenez We have now seen a few weathering magazines from Ammo this publication is longer at 114 pages and is in effect a book not a magazine. As the title would suggest this edition concentrates on painting & weathering techniques for tanks/AFVs. Different products are show , though as the title suggests Ammo products feature. This book deals with Soviet equipment in conflicts since WW2. The book features; 2S3 SPG from Afghanistan. BMP-2 from Donestsk. BTR-70 from Afghanistan. T-
  23. While waiting for some scratch building materials for my Mig-3 project I decided to do this Trumpeter IS-7 kit I had laying around, because I find Trumpeter 1/72 kits are always a pleasure to work on. I did a few modifications for added detail, but overall the kit had the nice detail that I have come to expect from these 1/72 Trumpeter kits. The last one I did was an STRV-103 from Trumpeter that I loved building, so I was hoping this would be another reasonably priced gem. Although it was missing a few details that were present on the model shown on the package, it was pretty much just as good
  24. Hi guys and girls, You can find the built thread here on the site. I finished this one having some issues here and there, most of my own making. The engine didnt fit too well. Needed some surgery to convince it to stick in reasonable. Lesson learned, more dryfitting even or maybe because my own scratch detailling. I had few problems with the landing gear, a first . With enourmess trembling hands I attached the antenna wires, they could be thighter but I take it. The canopy parts had disstortion and scratches otb. I was affraid to repair them, an error I will live to regret. Next
  25. Can someone tell me what the basic colors of this aircraft would be? or where I can find more info. on this particular aircraft?
