  1. Finished! Well, not really, but I'm a bit fed up, as I can touch it any more without losing some parts here and there. So, let's call it finished! Even if I'll certainly do some little touch up in the coming days. Here are the pictures: Any comment is welcome!
  2. Hi there! While trying to tidy up my workshop lately, I came upon a plastic box with a surprise inside! An old Eduard Yak-3, 75% complete, that I was able to date with Carbon 14 as my first attempt to build something just back from Taiwan in 2014. As seven years later I was still strugling to build something, I decided that it was worth giving it a second try. Today the kit is 99% finished, but I'l take you through the build if you don't mind, before embarking on a small vignette set-up. Here we go. Here's what I found in the box. Everything seems to be there. I'll have to have another go at the prop, as it breaks apart as soon as I touched it. Overall, the rest of the kit looks good, I'll have to touch up the karman, at that's about all. The main problem with this kit is the thickness of the wings trailing edges, but it's to late to do something about that, I'll have to live with it. At least, Ed's PE gives a nice looking cockpit.
  3. Nice little kit, I added the quinta studio cockpit (really love the quinta stuff) Primed in UMP black primer, MRP paints, AK and UMP washes. Probably went slightly too far on the weathering front, but happy overall.
  4. Dear fellow Britmodellers, I'm proud to present the latest Brengun release, the 1/72 Yak 1B (aka 1M in Polish service). I built mostly out of the box, but added a vacu sliding hood (Rob Taurus) and replaced the antenna & pitot tube. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, representing the aircraft of A.F. Lavrenov, a Soviet ace with 22 confirmed kills. The kit is very well detailed and builds without major problems. I'd say it is the best Brengun kit I have ever tried myself on. Highly recommended! Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. # # Thanks for your interest, best greetings from Vienna! Roman
  5. Let rest from MiF building Project inventory: Seats and cockpit:
  6. Called this project finished Can't say this model a nice to build but I happy enough now. full album Hope you enjoy it
  7. Dear fellow Britmodellers, my next kit finished is the 1/72 Amodel Yak-9U, a model I picked from the 'second hand' box of my local hobby shop this summer. The kit is typical short-run, without alignment pins, but generally good surface detail. Most parts need care and clean-up before assembly. I replaced the pitot tube with a piece of wire. Amodel's decals are among the worst I've ever seen, having a thick carrier film that's fraying around its edges and color mis-prints; what's supposed to be Red is actually Orange. I only used some instruction markings from the kit's decal sheet and replaced Red Stars, Bort number and nose art from a Print Scale sheet (72072). Much to my disappointment, I found out that some of the Red Stars on the Print Scale sheet are out of register, carrying white shadow lines. Represented is the aircraft of Georgiy Baevski, Hero of the Soviet Union (19 victories) from the 5th Guards Fighter Regiment (GIAP), Germany March 1945. Painted with acrylics from the Gunze/Mr.Hobby range, all photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Greetings from Vienna! Kind regards from Vienna.
  8. Morning Chaps Getting started with my first contribution to this Group Build (fingers crossed, we will have time for a second one). I`m planning to go OOB with this lovely kit from Accurate Miniatures. Got a set of paints for the Great Patriotic War from Vallejos so we are all go. With a bit of time off coming up (winter break around here) I hope to get cracking over the weekend. Pictures to probe my intentions: The Kit The paints The lot Progress to follow soon. Cheers Adrian
  9. After an exciting day out at Abingdon Air and Country show, I've just got around to unboxing the vintage kits I picked up on the model stalls. The first being Mikro 1:72 Yak-1M. I believe this kit is from 1977 and looks a little ruff around the edges, but should be fun. There are 2 white sprues, each with a lot of flash, a tiny clear sprue, and some aging decals which could prove rather testing.
  10. Hi there, I wanted to share my 1/48 Yak-1b build. Its the Modelsvit kit (not the flawed Accurate Miniatures/ Eduard kit). A PE set of Armory i bought for more accuracy on this kit. I want to leave the maintenance panels on the side of the cockpit open. I decided to build the Yak of Roland de la Poype. Its a very recognizable plane with one the most famous shark mouths on it. I hope you like it! Regards, Remco
