  1. Does anyone know what this kit is like? Specifically, does it have raised panel lines, or engraved? Is it any good or an awful shape/fit, etc?
  2. My eleventh build of the year comes in the shape of this German Air Force WTD.61 Sukhoi Su-22 M4 30918 98+14. This was known as the official "Last Flight Su-22" which had its service life extended in order for its last flight to RAF Scampton where it currently resides. 1/72 Bilek/Italeri kit. Pavla cockpit & Canopy. Airwaves etch. Scale Aircraft Conversions landing gear. Armory resin wheels. Master brass pitot probes & gun barrels Hi Decal & Propagteam decals. Ammo Mig, Hataka & Vallejo acrylics. Also many thanks to Andre "Hook" for the Aphid miss
  3. Italeri 1/72 Mirage 2000C with Syhart decals To be precise - French Air Force Mirage 2000C 103-LI 2010 Nato Tiger Meet EC 1/12 Cambresis. Had to use the relatively OK Italeri 1/72 kit but its nothing special so it was a slog to build as loads of things need cleaning up on the moulding. Sink marks filled, panel lines on the nose cone needed removing. Other panel lines on the upper wing rescribed, dropped the flaps, used a more accurate ejection seat from the Special Hobby F1 kit That Special Hobby kit is great as a donor for parts for other mirages, comes in handy. Al
  4. Ok silly me has decided to build another on for this GB, it wasn’t planned but I will have some time and it’ll help reduce the stash. Ok I got this at my clubs yearly auction last year. That stupid box was the first to go and the sprue was chopped up to fit into a smaller and sensible box, so I had to source another box photo! It’s actually not a bad looking model….especially for the prise I paid $10. Ok me being me some things needed to be replaced, exhausts and wheels. Being that there’s not a lot of difference betwee
  5. IIRC, I have read somewhere that ZE355/S only had the tiger stripes applied on one side of the rudder when it was at the Tiger Meet in Italy. Anybody out there confirm this? Also, did this have the back seaters periscope fitted at the time in question. Toying with doing this one from the ZM F-4J Marines kit as I have a pot of xtracolour X127 standing idle. TIA Chris
  6. First off I should start with a BIIIIIG sorry! O.k. please guys, beware! This one is really picture heavy, to be precise, it will be almost 140 pics heavy, so if you want to get out, better do it now! I thought some time about splitting this up between the WIP and the RFI sections but since the lady is already finished I thought it even more unpleasant to make the watcher switch between the sections. Hence I now decided to turn this into some sort of crude mix of WIP and Rollout. I hope this is not far too much and that I am not breaking any rules and that you bear with me. I just finished
  7. Hello Britmodellers, after a break (för mödellingör thö Viggen) now my latest Roll out for ModellFan Magazine. Was a Brit show stopper then in 1977... Cheers, Tom
  8. I'm calling this one done. I had major trauma with the decals and the paint underneath is waaaaay too thick but I enjoyed it and learnt a few lessons. Anyway here it is.
  9. Hello All, I'd like to join. Always fun to build a Matchbox kit. My CF-104 will be a Canadian Starfighter in Tiger Meet livery. I'm going to use a Hasegawa F-104 decal sheet because it has the tiger head for one of the Meets. The code will not be accurate. I bought the kit at a swap meet and it came is two wing tanks from an ESCI kit. (The original kit does not come with wing tanks.) So, I'm good to go. Here's a shot of the sprues, wing tanks and decals.
  10. ....and now for something completely different! The Eye of the Tiger This small rendition of the french superjet is by far the newest and best kit in 1:72. But there are surprisingly many faults and the jet is partly undersized. That did hurt and i spent 130 hrs on that. It was in ModellFan 2016/05. But everytime i look at, it i get some Tiger in my Tank!
  11. Hey again... Yep two finishes in as many days - definitely NOT the way I usually roll, but no matter. Kinetic 1:48 Alpha Jet with (outstanding) Wingman decals and no other extras whatsoever. Kit does have some 'build issues' most notably in the wing/fuselage join - so-much-so that in order to build it with the flaps dropped, you need to cut away a couple of milimeters from the inside edge of the flaps and re-profile them with a sa
  12. Well I’m first cab off the rank of this build, only because I though it was to start last weekend! Had all the photos and stuff ready as well. For this GB I wanted something nice and simple, I had the Eduard 2000C in the stash so all I needed was a new colour scheme as I didn’t fancy the ones supplied. The model is quite simple and really old, it started life in 1992 when it was released by Heller…..and it shows it! The panel detailing is quite nice but some of the other stuff! There are some nice extras with the model, some I’ll use
  13. Tiger Meet 2017. Brittany, Rafale, F-16, Rafale, F/A-18, Rafale, Gripen, Rafale, Gazelle, Rafale... And also some Rafale.
  14. Well she finally here, seems like ages since I proposed this GB! Ok after a few minor issues I think I have this one all sorted….even if I have a complete F-16 now spare, more on that one later. For this build I plan to build a Polish F-16CJ in 2015 Tiger Meet colours….well Grey in a tiger pattern! I’ll be using Tamiya’s lovely F-16 for this build, …and yes I know this one is a Block 50 and I need a Block 52, that’s why I now have a second one (and I know I should have just built the second one instead….but that would be too easy for me!).
  15. Well here goes, since I can't see anybody else showing us how this little beauty goes together I'm presenting my W.I.P. of my recently acquired simple set from the big H. I'm rather partial to Tiger Meet schemes so I was rather happy that Syhart re-released the two F-1C Tiger Meet Schemes, one from 1991 and the other from 1994 so I ordered them along with the Special Hobby F1C Simple set at a bargain price. Only lord knows how I made the mistake, I accidentally ordered two 1/48 sheets, so back to Hannants they were posted and the correct 1/72 sheets are now back in the post. The detail in
  16. Italian Air Force F-104S MM6825/53-06(cn 783-1125) "Tiger Meet 88" 21 Gruppo 53 Stormo Cameri in Nato Tiger Meet, 1988. Kit:REVELL 1/144 F-104G converted Decal:DIY decal

  18. The special scheme "Bavarian Tiger" of Luftwaffe Eurofighter EF-2000 Typhoon S 3009 (cn GS004/048) during NATO Tiger Meet 2014. Kit:F-Toys Euro Jet 1/144 EF-2000 Decal:Fully hand-painted with DIY decal
  19. This is the second 1/144 Tornado I have done in a Tiger Meet Livery. The other was a 2011 version. Both of these kits were easy to build and with plenty of detail. The plane depicted in this version was based in Lechfeld AB in 1994. In both kits, the decals were the focus of the build, so pretty much everything was OOB. And, Revell must be given credit as the decals behaved quite well with the Micro Set/Sol solutions. What distinguishes this kit from the other was the paint disaster that occurred in layering a top clear coat. The coat topside went on fine, no problems and I thought I
  20. My fascination with Tiger Meet kits continues with this 1/72 Rafale B from Hobby Boss. I have built some 1/144 and 1/72 Revell Tornados, but I am branching out. This is the first Hobby Boss kit I have ever built. I am wondering if the fit and design of the kit, plus the quality of the decals will equal Revell. I have chosen the second Tiger Meet scheme in the box. The cover depicts another Tiger Meet aircraft. Upon opening the box, I am very pleasantly surprised with the amount of detail to the parts and surface. This is a very nice kit. Now, I have to admit, I have no knowledge of p
  21. another one bites the dust.... Another out of my 1/144 scale kits. F-15E from Revell. Awesome little kit. And next to his big 1/48 brother.
  22. French Air Force Rafale C (113-HJ) and Rafale B(118-HT) at the NATO Tiger Meet 2013 in Ørland hovedflystasjon, Norway. Kit:REVELL 1/144 RAFALE M converted Decal:Hand-painted with DIY decal
  23. Had to take a bit of time off due to work, so to get back into the swing of things picked up a couple of 1/44 Revell Tornado Tiger Meet kits. Now, normally, I do WWII aircraft and in scales of 1/48 and higher. So this is a bit out of my comfort zone. But there is something a bit appealing about these kits. After I built this one and am almost finished with a second type, I am hooked on tiger meet aircraft. So now I have a 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32 kit in the stash. I can see the appeal of these kits. It takes very little time to finish them, the build was not difficult, you get a pretty nice
  24. Now this was a fun project. Rather than spend countless hours with fiddly photo-etch, I decided to spend countless hours with tiger stripe decals. In Braille scale no less! This is the ageless Hasegawa kit, showing its age, but still building into a credible replica. The decal sheet is from Leading Edge Decals in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, who have a fantastic collection of decals for Canadian aircraft. Paint is ModelMaster FS35237 (which seems a bit green to me, but maybe that's my old eyes). The tiger stripes account for the dark gray - nominally FS36118, although som
