  1. US Pilots & Ground Personnel (Vietnam War) ICM 1:48 (48087) Figures This new set from ICMs is no doubt designed for their new upcoming 1/48 scale kits, but can be used elsewhere. There is two pilot getting ready for flying, one carrying as helmet. Also in the set is another officer figure (possibly maintenance) also with two ground crew. The uniforms are Vietnam era and the sculpting is up to ICM's high standards. Conclusion This is another great set from ICM and looks like a direct add on for their new kits (
  2. Hello to all of you guys and girls.I have finished the old Italeri F-117A as a quick and pleasure build.The kit itself its quite nice and the fit is really good.I have rescribed the panel lines.I did add some simple cockpit details like some knobs and seatbelts.The decals used are for the only f-117a to be lost in combat and the decals came from balkan models set for the downed ac over yugoslavia.I have made a video build that I have posted on my youtube chanel so if interested feel free to look it up on the following link. Regards,Dragan
  3. Hello to all.I made this kit in the span of 7-10 days.The fit is almost perfect.A really top quality hasegawa plastic.It has decent details.I only added homemade seatbelts and toned the canopy.I painted the model with Hataka, ak real colors and tamiya acyrlics.The decals are a bit diffucult to work with but in the end I managed to use them effectivly. Enjoy the photos
  4. Hello guys.This one I built OOB for a customer of mine.The fit is not the best but not the worst I have seen.The plastic is a bit soft but it is easy to sand.The panels are pretty shallow and wide but with a light pass of the rescribing tool can be made much deeper and able to hold a wash.I painted it in ak interactive colors and the clear varnishes are from vallejo. Enjoy the photos .
  5. Dear All, Tamiya's interpretation of F-16 is an outstanding kit with pretty fine details and easy build. Added only resin ejection seat and PE from Eduard, painted with Mr. Color. The plane stationed in Japan, a few years ago I had the opportunity to see it and walk around at Yokota Air Base (friendship festival). (Some of the static dischargers were broken off, need to replace them.)
  6. A.M.U.R. Reaver released a new resin set to improve 1/32 aircraft such as F-15, F-16, F-111, A-10, CH-53, Swiss Hawker Hunter F.Mk.58. Set will contain four standard dispensers and four with double-sized cells.
  7. 1/48th Eduard P-400 Air-a-Cutie Hello all, After much procrastinating, I've finally finished my first P-400. It goes without saying that the decals were the reason why I wanted to build this kit. Would've loved to find the original Eduard/Hasegawa kits, but these seem to have vanished off the surface of the earth, so I had to settle with some aftermarket decals for the pin-ups, serial numbers and insignias, at a rather expensive price, but excellent quality nonetheless... The other decals were provided from the original Eduard Kit, which means I'll have lots of other op
  8. Hello to all of you guys and girls of this forum.I present you my 1:48 t-6 Texan II of the USAF.It is a quite nice kit to work on.Fits almost without any major problems.If you are interested in the build process follow the youtube link bellow. regards,Dragan
  9. Hi gang, I have tried AK Real colors and I am satisfied with their easy airbrushing. But as usually, are colors rather correct ? Or out of any range ? I believe that RAF/FAA/USAF and Japanese are okay, since Nick Millmann was involved, I guess that also RLM shades are okay due to Jurgen Kiroff. But what about others ? Russian, modern an other nations ? If not, are there any generally acceptable paints in general for particular nations ? Thanks for your inputs...
  10. USAF Aggressors Blue Colors Paint Set (A.MIG-7235) AMMO of Mig Jiménez The USAF operates Aggressor Squadrons to train pilots in air to air combat. Often the aircraft used are painted in schemes that resemble Soviet/Russian aircraft. This six-paint set arrives in a clear clamshell box with a card header with some colour use suggestions on the rear. Inside are four bottles each containing 17ml of paint that is dispensed by a dropper that is found under the yellow screw-top cap. Inside each bottle is a little stirring ball that rattles when agitated.
  11. Hi! A few days ago I finished the F-15E from the Academy. Easy construction, very good detail. I just changed the nozzles to Aires. Main color painted FS36118 from AK RC. I also used Tamiya, Gunze, Vallejo and AK Xtreme metal paints.
  12. I started a build of a KC-135A on another forum for a GB and while I was tinkering with bits ended up with 3 on the go... So I decide one would be an RC-135V or W since you don't see many (any?) of these completed. There are a couple of things I need to sort out before progressing. I am thinking about a take off config for this build and need to decide if I start chopping open nose gear doors. If not then some nose weight has to go in. The other issue is; will I use the kit TF-33s or steal some CFMs from another kit to make it a curren
  13. Well what else could a Minion do? I tried to resist for as long as possible but I am a truly weak willed Minion at the best of times, and as we all know this isn't the best of times! So in the ebst Minion style I reached into the stash and pulled out a BANANA!!! No not a large bendy yellow herb but a 1/72 Italeri Piasecki H-21 Shawnee or as it is usually referred the "flying banana". I really like the early helicopters and this has long been a favourite of mine, in fact this will not be the first time I have built one as I built a RCAF machine in a rather fetching red, white and bl
  14. Hello! This is my post Korean F-86F from Hasegawa. Very nice kit, no issues at all. Since the decals were quite old and “yellowed”, I got a new set from Aeromaster. Metallic paint were automotive types and the rest from Gunze acrylics. Hope you enjoy! Cheers!
  15. Hi! Little fast project on the side. Completly no problem build - 100% OOB. Model was painted with AK RC, Tamiya and Gunze paints, small details with Vallejo and Model Master. Weathering I made with oil paints for artists.
  16. Like many on this forum I remember the excitement of queueing up at age of six for the Cinema (Gants Hill Odeon I think) to see Battle of Britain with my Dad. And again a few weeks later to see it again. At the time the main thing my friends and I remembered was the endless parade of German bombers at the start proving “we” didn’t have a cat in hell’s chance; and the bomber crew’s goggles filling up with blood when attacked! Gruesome, but that’s a six-year old for you. That must have been the time the Airfixing started, initially with Dad but quickly progressing to my own work and painting
  17. 1/72 Academy F-8 Crusader, 422d Fighter Weapons Squadron, USAF, Da Nang AB, South Vietnam, 1969 Well then, certainly not one for the purists.... I absolutely love the Academy Crusader - must be one of the best '72 kits ever made. I have built 4 of them now, 3 of them in their traditional grey and white. I do like throwing my own ideas into the mix now and again and have wanted to do a USAF Crusader for ages. So, here it is...! Depicted as an aircraft undergoing test and evaluation but on the front line of CAS missions in South Vietnam - why let the Marine
  18. Hello! I’ve always liked Aggressor’s scheme for the Eagles, so as soon I got a F-15C kit, I went after the right decal set for this scale. They’re from Two Bobs and everything else is OOB. I scratch built the ACMI pod from a AIM-9, so this bird is in the normal configuration for ACM training, with the pod and a captive AIM-9. Kit was ok, except for the rear compartment lid that had to be well sanded so the canopy could fit closed, even tough is not perfect. Hope you enjoy! Cheers
  19. This build was cursed. That is all. Problems were mostly caused by my own clumsiness, not the GWH kit, which in terms of fit and surface detail is fantastic. Dropped the model, breaking a stabiliser and meaning I had to redo the first camo colour during the large-scale masking work… then a gear leg snapped and I had to drill the stumps out and brass rod repair job the thing, the AK colours I used for the first time on this kit didn’t react well to Mr Leveling Thinner, separating during spraying so that each cup sprayed different shades which meant my usual shading technique was i
  20. A few months ago I was discussing the TSR2 with a fellow club member that it was a shame it never made it into service and that I had been looking for a TSR2 kit for a while when he had one which he would let me have, an Airfix 1/72 still in the original box. My idea was do make as a what if the USAF had taken them instead of the F111 in use in Vietnam circa 1970's, in SEA camo and a full load of mk82 snakeeye bombs. I have got a set of Print scale decal for the correct period F111 based in Thailand and will use the F111 paint scheme as a guide. I will have to source the bombs and MER's at som
  21. Howdy all, Just finished my attempt at making an Early Vietnam era F-105D from the old 1/48 Monogram kit Finished to represent an aircraft of the 334th TFS/355th TFW, Takhli RTAFB, Thailand, circa 1964/65 Had to make a few mod`s to the base kit, including: deletion of the gun compartment vents, deletion of the afterburner cooling air scoops, deletion of the fuselage spine, enlarge the tail air intake, removed various scab plates from the air frame, gun camera and nose antennas. Noticed in photo`s that the Aluminium Silver Paint they were finishe
  22. Hi all, I'm oping to depict the Italeri F-100F as the a/c below, only this is the only picture I can find of it. Any tips welcome. Where can I obtain the MicroScale decals from the late 1970s?<
  23. USAF Flight Line Maintenance (198232) 1:32 VideoAviation.com Aircraft dont fly and generate sortie without correct maintenance. Flight line maintenance kits and figures can add an essential touch to any diorama and this set from VideoAviation is an update of a previous set. The Kit It arrives in a clear plastic bubble box, and inside there are a substantial bundle of resin parts, all in bags and protected for their safety. There are two figures, one standing as if about to start marshalling and the other fixing some thing a pilot no doubt broke
  24. Hallo again The EF-111 is the 1/48 kit from HB. I used the etched parts from Eduard and I think this was all. The a/c is for me interesting in the navigation aids, as terrain following and stellar navigation. The kit is not so difficult; the aerodynamic of the open wing was for me the most exiting feature. Happy modelling
