  1. Hi mates! Here my recently finished WWII project. The kit is very nice, except of decals (both research and quality, so I just painted most of the markings). Aftermarket used - Eduard etch, Armory wheels, Montex masks for insignia This specific aircraft was lost over Black Sea in 1944 with whole crew. Critics welcome!
  2. Xuntong Model Bobcat Hobby Model Kits is to release a 1/48th Yakovlev Yak-28P "Firebar" kit - ref. 48001 With short (early) and long (late) nose radomes.

  3. #18/2017 My dad´s newest completion, the Xuntong kit, painted with Tamiya Nato Black and Vallejo Model Air A-24m Green. EZ Line for the aerials. During construction the balance weight on the fin tip broke off, had to repair it with some scratch stuff. Also the landing light is scratch, kit has only a hole in the wing. Build thread here Model shows an aircraft of the Baltic Fleet, 1st Guards Maritime Torpedo Aviation Regiment, summer/fall 1944.

  4. I'm joining in this GB with the Xuntong 1/48 Tupolev Tu-2S. Starting with the traditional open box shot: I had been on the lookout for one of these for a while - they seemed to have become as rare as the proverbial rocking horse poo for a while, and I saw a couple at exorbitant prices on a certain auction site - but Luckymodel seems to have recently got it back in stock so I snapped it up, and at quite a reasonable price. First impression is of quite a nice kit. The plastic is a little thick and some of the panel lines look a little deep, but not too bad. There
  5. Here's my Xuntong 1/48 Tupolev Tu-2S, built in the Radial Engines Rock group build. WIP is here. This was mostly from the box, the only aftermarket were resin wheels from Armory and props and spinners from Quickboost. It's quite a nice kit and an impressive size when done, it's got some nice detail, but quite fiddly in places, whilst others are pretty sparse and ripe for detailing (wheel wells, bomb bay, interior walls and floors are all pretty plain). Overall, a fairly satisfying build, but there are a lot of small, fragile parts that are a little more frustrating to deal with tha
  6. After the fatal crash of his An-2 model my dad started his next Soviet built subject earlier than expected. Not yet decided which version. Always thought this bomber was bigger..
  7. As luck would have it, after getting a Xuntong's Tu-2VS (it was on a sale after all) and doing some basic research on the subject it appears that this version did not really exist. Now, it is mentioned in one of the books I perused during the quick research I did as a small footnote, with no specifics. I know that Xuntong have released the more ubiquitous Tu-2S version. So what would be required to backdate/update the Tu-2VS to Tu-2S. Does the Xuntong provide all the details in the box to perform this update? (Or is this just a case of a man
  8. DB-3F/IL-4/IL-4T Soviet Long Range Bomber 1:48 Xuntong Ilyushin began work on this twin engined long-range bomber long before the outbreak of WWII, and it was initially given the code DB-4 from the Russian for Long-Range Bomber. The designed was warmed over from one previously entered for another competition, and through constant changes to the structure, engines and other equipment it morphed into the DB-3F, which was re-designated as the IL-4, which benefitted from more improvements that resulted in a stronger, lighter aircraft that could carry more fuel, and with a lengthened fuselage i

  10. New in from Xuntong Model of China. The DB-3F was the most widely used variant of the DB-3 series. The DB-3F was put into production in 1940 and in March 1942 its designation was changed to Il-4, the torpedo version being Il-4T. Order now from your usual stockist or dealer.
  11. We present the new 1/35 scale M60A1 from AFV Club. This brand new model is bristling with detail. Also new is Schwere Panzerpaehwagen SdKFZ 233 with 7.5cm gun and the Russian T-34/85 with transparent turret and detailed interior. Hobby Fan's detail up resin figures sets for the AEC Matador and M60A1 have come in, and we have a small quantity of the premium "Ding-Hao" Churchill carpet layer type B. Xuntong of China has delivered their new Illyushin IL-4 (DB-3) in 1/48 scale, and this is now available too. Ask your usual stockist or dealer for these new releases. Visit our website http://ww
  12. After the Tu-2T - ref.B48003 (http://www.britmodel...8035&hl=xuntong) Xuntong Model is to release two new variants of this soviet tactical bomber, the Tu-2VS (ref.B48001) and Tu-2S (ref.B48002).

  13. Xuntong DB-3F/IL-4T detail set 1:48 Eduard The Xuntong DB-3F/IL-4T has been out for some time now but it’s good to see it hasn’t been completely forgotten by the aftermarket companies as Eduard have just released a nice set of etched parts and masks for it. The kit is full of very nice detail out of the box, but some of this detail can look quite chunky and would be better suited to the more scale thickness of the etched brass. Detail Set (49700) The two sheets contained in the standard poly sleeve provide parts for both the interior and exterior, so no need for separate sets. The m
  14. Tupolev TU-2 Exhausts 1:48 Quickboost by Aires Containing four exhaust stacks on two casting blocks, this is an incredibly quick and easy way to add hollow exhausts to your TU-2. Simply liberate the parts from the casting block using a sharp knife, and clean up the back-side, replacing the kit parts D61 and D62 with these nicely detailed parts. What's not to like? Highly recommended. Available in the UK from Hannants Review samples courtesy of
  15. Tu-2T/S Update Sets (for Xuntong) 1:48 Eduard Xuntong appeared out of nowhere (as far as I'm concerned at least) with a couple of variants of the infrequently kitted Tupolev Tu-2. It's a nice kit actually (I have the S), irrespective of the fact that it's also their first kit as far as I know. These sets are tooled to fit this kit, and improve the details significantly over a number of mix-and-match sets. Three of the sets are suitable for either kit, while the other two sets for the interior are specific to the T or the S, but as the differences are limited to the instrument panels and
  16. A new chinese brand, Xuntong Model, has released or is to release a 1/48th Tupolev Tu-2T "Bat" kit.

So what about B48001 and B48002 kits? Other Tu-2 versions? The Tu-2: http://en.wikipedia....ki/Tupolev_Tu-2 V.P.
