  1. I can call it Finished! BZ-38, from UM in 1/48 scale. I decided to open the back doors, but I don't know how it was inside, so all that is there are my fantasies the process is here https://photos.app.goo.gl/qBS7r1C4gzc2NnJXA
  2. This topic began in the thread on the latest book from Guideline Publications that you can see here, but drifted off topic, so has been stripped out to continue on its own merits I bought this a couple of months ago, and if the plans in the book are accurate, then the new tool/boxing of the Airfix Mig 15 has a fuselage that is way too big and the fairly old KP Mig 15 is about right. The book itself is very good, an interesting read in its own right.
  3. There is a 1/72 kit of the Soviet most widespread piston-engined chopper. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/mistercraft-f-04-mil-mi-4a-hound--1194890 Between 1953 and 1988 almost 4000 of them (the total of US H-19 and H-34 combined) were used all over the Eastern hemisphere. Hundreds of them - serving in African and Asiatic countries - wore multi-colour camouflages. Even Czech and Polish examples were painted in two (or even three) greens over blue. But I have never seen a Soviet Mi-4 sporting the multi-colour uppersurface camouflage except for this specimen from the Mistercr
  4. Mikoyan-Gurevich Mig-15 Warpaint No.120 Guideline Publications The Mig-15 was the Soviet Union’s first accomplished jet fighter following WWII, the better design of a number of candidates and more capable of achieving transonic speeds because of its swept wings than the other straight winged competitors. Using reverse-engineered, locally built Rolls Royce Nene copies for power they became one of the most produced fighter jets and were upgraded as time went by until they reached the limits of the airframe and were replaced by the upgraded Mig-17 that served in Vie
  5. Hi all, I'm starting a Zil 131 soon and I'm just going through what paints I'll need for it. It says I'll need xf 5 for the green, does anyone know if this is the correct colour for Soviet military vehicles? I'm looking at doing a Zil 131 from the 1980s, would the green be different back then. I'm planning on spraying it. Either tamiya and humbrol paints will be perfect for me if anyone can help me out.
  6. Hi guys, I have a old Hasegawa Mig 25 I'd like to build up as its pretty basic and shouldn't take me too long, but I can't find the correct paint colour for the interior. Any help would be appreciated
  7. Thanks to my wife i have this nice collection. every time she buy shoes, i buy tanks... And i'm still behind if you compare
  8. Pe-2 Dive bomber in 1:48 scale. 34th Guards Red Banner Regiment, 276 Bomb Group, 1945 Built from Zvezda new tool kit. painted by Tamiya and vallejo paints. sealed by mat varinish. more pics
  9. Just finished another project. Polikarpov I-152 (I-15bis) from Special Hobby in 1/48 scale. Building process and more pictures you can see here: https://goo.gl/photos/EWb28Anj2Hx8CUZ77 The model is not for beginners. There were some difficulties, but overall positive experience. The result - one box became less Hope you like it Regards Ivan.
  10. Looks like another great release. Next year perhaps? Dan
  11. Lavochkin La-7 Commander of the 156th IAP Lt.Col., Hero of the Soviet Union S.F. Dolgushin, 215th IAD, 8th IAK, 4th VA, Kluzow, Germany, April 1945 Kit: 1/72 Eduard ProfiPack Afermarket parts: Pavla vacuformed canopy The main problem areas of the kit (fixed in this build) were: Wrong shaped wing tips (actually beginning at approx. 1/3rd of the span from the tip) both in profile and frontal view. While fixing this error, the aileron surface detail (being originally in "shrink-wrap" style) was lost and a new, more correct representation of doped fabric tautened over the frame with
  12. Hello I thought I'd do this group build. I recently discovered my local model shop and have been 3 times in the last few days. Today I bought this kit for £5 - and it's entirely complete. I was pretty suprised to be honest but happy with it. The only thing I want to do is get different decals - I hate having generic USSR decals so I might get some Polish ones or print my own. This is the last kit I'm doing entirely by hand I hope (airbrush should be coming soon) but the first I'm going to build extra detail for - including printing cockpit details, making some joysticks and such from spare p
  13. Hi, I've started this thread a bit late in the process, but better late than never. A bit before Christmas I was told not to get the Airfix version, and to look at some other ones (Here is that thread). But this was a Christmas present, and I've enjoyed the build so far. I'm disagreeing a bit with the box though. I'd have expected them to use to Russian name, or rather, Stalin's Russian name (Iosif, rather than Joseph.) But it wasn't my choice, oh well. So far I've assembled it and have painted the base colour and the machine gun: I'm just waiting for my airbrush propellant
  14. Hi, a bit of a newbie question, here. I'm planning on buying the Airfix JS-3 1:76 scale model soon. What Humbrol colour acrylic would you suggest for a snow camouflage? Thanks.
  15. Another completed build from myself and again (I apologise for so many of them!) its another Hurricane. Again this is another brush painted effort, my airbrushing times are a bit of a way off at the moment, but I'm enjoying the brush painting. It is a fictional effort, depicting Hurricane 'KZ335' in Russian service (this aircraft was really used in Greece according to some sources). MkIIc's seems less common in Russian service compared with the MkIIb. This was the Revell kit again, it went together really nicely again and this time I managed to get all four cannons off the sprues without break
  16. What are appropriate colors to use for painting those camouflaged Cold War-era MiG-23s in straight-up Soviet service? I am not a good paint mixer (as I am an excellent paint spiller), and I really only use acrylics, so "close enough" is probably fine. I see Testors/Polly (easily available here in the land of milk and honey that is northern Illinois) have some Soviet aircraft colors (Soviet Green, Soviet Khaki, Soviet Sand), but are these what I need?
