  1. Tu-128 'Fiddler' Kit: Trumpeter Tu-128M Fiddler (#01687) Scale: 1/72 Paints: Vallejo Model Air, Metal Color & Model Color Aftermarket: Eduard PE- parts, CMK figure, DIY base with Noch & Vallejo basing materials Weathering: Oil paints, Flory Models, Vallejo, Tamiya & Ammo Mig Trumpeters huge Tu-128 'Fiddler' had a little accident - it didn't like the enamel thinner I used to remove Tamiya panel liner. I've found out that Ammo Mig enamel thinner is much more gentle, Revell makes the paint surface all flat and has a risk of removing paint. And of course I picked up the wrong bottle. But it was a happy accident as it goes - I decided not to waste all the hard work I've made with the model - I had a moment of inspiration to go all in with the weathering and tell a s tory of a neglected museum bird. The guy with the bucket and cloth seems to be woefully unprepared for the cleaning task at hand! Tu-128, the largest and heaviest fighter ever in service was purpose built by Soviets to defend the 5000km long northern air front. Huge size meant it could fit huge fuel tanks which led to over 3 hour endurance and 1500km range. Armed with four heavy R-4 missiles, usually a mix of radar guided and IR versions. Tu-128 was a two seater plane, radar operator sitting in the back. Despite being a 'fighter' - or interceptor to be more precise - 'Fiddler' flew like a bomber. It was certainly not meant for manouvering but to engage targets at a distance and turn away. Maximum G-limit while loaded with missiles was only 2.5G's. Tu-128 came operational in the late 60's and remained in service until 1990. I'm not quite sure where one draws a line between a display base and a diorama - but I hope this is in the right place. If not, moderators feel free to pop this in the right place Anyway, here's the model with the base - hope you like it!
  2. A 1/48th Tupolev Tu-128 "Fiddler" resin kit is in project by Jetmads - ref. 412801 Sources: https://www.facebook.com/JETMADS2016/posts/760241394898148 https://www.jetmads.com/product-page/1-48-tu-128-fiddler V.P.
  3. Time to make a commitment and decide on my subject choice. This particular machine has always been a firm favourite for me and when Trumpeter announced their 1/72nd scale kit of the worlds largest and heaviest fighter I held out hope it'd be one of their more accurate. From all the reviews and reports I've ready it thankfully is.
  4. Trumpeter is to release in 2017-2018 a 1/72nd Tupolev Tu-128M "Fiddler" kit - ref.01687 Source: https://www.facebook.com/md11mdster/posts/1578854138797554 V.P.
  5. This is my Tupolev Tu-128 "Fiddler B" Red 01, unit unknown, of the IA-PVO, Russia, USSR, which I built in 2012. It's a 1:144 resin bonus kit of the Tu-22K Blinder-B boxing (one hell of a bonus kit!). Built mostly OOB, correcting the position of the main undercarriage legs and putting the doors as they should be as opposed to what was suggested in the minimal instructions. I added various aerials and lumps from stretched sprue and scrap plastic as well as missing u/c retraction arms or struts. The kit was completely painted and varnished by brush. Thanks for looking and all comments welcome Miguel
  6. In a fit of either bravery or insanity, decided it was time to tackle something which has been lurking in the stash for a while.... Reference materials downloaded to Kindle.... "... we're going to need a bigger desk...." .
