  1. Hello all - I began this build a while back, and ran into a bit of a stall mid last year. I figured I might post my progress to date, and perhaps I can find my mojo again to finish this once and for all. This is the new(ish) Trimpeter 1/32nd offering, with a few additions from Eduard, Airies, Quickboost, AFV club and a gaggle of various scratched bits here and there. As many here likely already know, the kit is relatively accurate in size and form, if not sadly underdetailed in the cockpit and wheel wells. Those areas were about the only places where detail was present on the jet, so I ha

    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
  3. This was a quick project, I wanted something easy before tackling another helicopter project that's going to require quite a bit of work. It's the only 1/48th RAH-66 out there that I know of and (therefore great) it's got more right about it than wrong and with a real effort it could be made into a great model. Basically I made what I figured a third prototype might look like adding more details I noticed the 2 prototypes eventually received, external vents, aerials, steps, modified the tail planes, improved the oversimplified cockpit and instrument panels, filled in some inappropriate panel l
  4. Kamov Ka-58 Stealth Helicopter (03889) 1:72 Revell There isn't much one can write by way of introduction to a fictional subject, save for the fact that this kit is supposed to represent what a modern, Russian stealth helicopter might look like. The model follows the general design ethos of the Kamov design bureau, with a contra-rotating rotor and winglets to hold an array of armament options. For some, the idea of a model of a fictional subject will hold little appeal. For others, the application of coolodynamics will prove irresistible. I certainly re
  5. Overall incredibly pleased, very good kit, there were a few tricky bits where I had to do some DIY but overall very solid and easy to build. Expensive kit though! I studied a lot of photos of the B-2 and pretty much each of the 21 aircraft is different(Different panels, shapes, shades of grey…) So I didn’t outright copy one plane, I kind of created my own finish on it using lots of inspirations. However I did go for a more ‘patchwork’ finish rather than going for a plain finish. Have a look at these photos of the B-2: http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/18410/usafs-controver
  6. Hello mates, not yet british, but at least a Frightning II ( in matters of cost , not in this wonderful classic brute force as the electric trick) No it's no Boeing: But 747 was the first real one at 33 FW: F-35A first official operational jet. Colouring was quite difficult, but after all testing and mixing the thing looks like the big one to me. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you all, see you in 2018 again! Cheers, Thomas embedding please!? OMG thats really stealthy!!!!!
  7. I've attached a link to an interesting story. Ronald Reagan apparently offered Margaret Thatcher the opportunity for the MOD and RAF to be involved in the development of the F-117 for the RAF. I'm getting the whiff of Whiffery!! https://ukdefencejournal.org.uk/ronald-reagan-offered-britain-f-117-stealth-aircraft/#comment-367082
  8. Hi everyone, In the mid 90's I was stationed at RAF Colishall when an F117 on detachment in Holland somewhere was playing games trying not very hard to penetrate the UKs radar defences developed engine trouble. For some unknown reason the jock forsakes the options of Mildenhall or laken health a few more minutes "up the road" and annoyingly diverted to us at Colt. I was on the station reaction force at the time and was "knocked on" by my colleagues of the much loved RAF Police to join the " Aircraft guard" The yanks were still very touchy about the jet in them days. So I dutifully drew my w
  9. A fairly pain free build, A good one for anyone who wants to get their mojo back! Here she is... Kit: Academy Scale: 1/48 Type: F117a Stealth fighter Extras used: Two bobs decals Paints used: Vallejo and Tamiya
  10. Aviation Week has a couple of articles on the classified RQ-180 program: http://www.aviationweek.com/Article.aspx?id=/article-xml/awx_12_06_2013_p0-643783.xml&p=1 http://www.aviationweek.com/Article.aspx?id=/article-xml/awx_12_06_2013_p0-643786.xml The RQ-180 is an unmanned aerial system (UAS), designed for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, and is the likely successor to the RQ-170 Sentinel. Cheers, Bill
  11. Hi folks, I started this last November and did most of the initial construction and painting in a week or so - not bad. But it's taken at least two or three times that long to actually finish it, and strictly speaking it isn't entirely finished - I haven't done the bomb seeker heads yet. But it's a nice day and I thought I'd take some pictures to share: (click for bigger) My first finished modern jet (although I've started one before) so I learned a lot: All the final assembly stuff is surprisingly tricky - I was slotting one of the bomb bay doors into place and using a little f
