  1. Hello my friends.I present you my latest finished model.A mig-21 I built as a present for a friend of mine.The kit represents an ex Iraqi mig-21bis stuck in Yugoslavia when the desert strom 1 broke out.Around 1991-1992 it was flown with our national insignia.According to all the available reference material the weathering had to be at a minimum and the paintjob was brand new so that is why I coated it in semiglos varnish. Enjoy the photos
  2. I've been somewhat remiss with my group builds this year, with none competed. Hope this will break my duck "This" is a Somua S35, captured and taken into German service. The example I plan to build here will be one used for anti-partisan operations in Yugoslavia. My base kit will be the Tamiya example (is there another?) supplemented by DEF Model resin & PE components to try and improve on Tamiya's offering and add German specific modifications. (Actually it is three DEF model sets in one boxing) The box tops... The sprue shots And the
  3. With the broadening of the criteria for eligible countries one of my favourites has now become possible to build and that is Yugoslavia. I have been interested in the Yugoslav Air Force for a while, not least because of it's very interesting mix of aircraft it has operated from a variety of different sources including Western countries such as the UK and USA and also the USSR, not to mention aircraft which were captured by partisans from the Germans and then used against them. Another source was aircraft given to them as a form of war reparations payment and the example I'm going to build fall
  4. Messerschmitt Bf 109: The Yugoslav Story (Volume I) by Boris Ciglić with Dragan Savić, Milan Micevski & Predrag Miladinović I was surprised to find this awesome book recently as I was searching for more information to make a Yugoslav Bf 109E-3a model. Anyone who has tried to research the subject of the Yugoslav World War 2 aviation in particular and the story of the 1941 Axis invasion of Yugoslavia in general will know just how limited the offer is in the English language. Since both the aircraft in question and this chapter of World War 2 history were very interesting to m
  5. Hi all. With the release of the new 1/48 and 1/72 kits of Percival Proctor, two examples were given to Yugoslav partisans communication squadron in 1944 and were stationed on the island of Vis. In 1945, third a/c was gifted to Marshal Tito for his personal use. Sadly, I can't locate any info about serials or even photos online. Would they have come from No.267 Sq.? Does the book on Percival/Hunting aircraft contain individual a/c histories? TIA Vedran
  6. Bristol Blenheim: The Yugoslav Story Operational Record 1937-1958 by Aleksandar M. Ognjević I keep being pleasantly surprised when it comes to books on the subject of aircraft that flew for, against and simply over Yugoslavia during the Second World War. After buying the Messerschmitt Bf 109: The Yugoslav Story I came across a book in a very similar format, but by a different author and from a different publisher, dedicated to the history of the Bristol Blenheim in Yugoslavia (for avoidance of any doubt I want to say that I have payed full price for my copy of the book, includ
  7. Hi, I am gathering photos and any suggestions or infos for construction of Breguet 19.8 - the late variant of Breguet XIX with different wings (with rounded tips) and Wrigth Cyclone engine. There is a resin kit by Omega http://modelimex.eu/1-72-breguet-19-8-yugoslavia-croatia , but I would like to know more details before start work on model. On a poor quality two photos I have already I noticed landing lights below lower wings, for instance. In different drawing the Towden ring is either of constant chord either with reduced chord at the bottom. This variant was in use by RYAF in 1941 a
  8. Bit of a belated entry this, been busy with other builds and to be honest also couldn't make my mind up as to which subject to build as I have a fair few (too many according to my wife) to choose from and the MTO is one of my favourite areas of interest in WWII and has already been the subject of quite a few of my builds including a B-24D, P-39, P-38, Spitfire Vb Trop, Henschel HS-129, Bf-109 G-10 and Ju-87B/R. So once again I've probably bitten off more than I can chew and am going to try a double build. I started the Spitfire 5 days ago and haven't taken any progress pictures of it unti
  9. Hi all, Here are some pics of my recently finished Airfix 1/48 Spitfire Vb built as an aircraft from 352 (Yugoslav) Sqn RAF and based in Italy during the Autumn of 1944. The Squadron later moved to the island of Vis in the Adriatic from where they continued operations over there occupied homeland. I really enjoyed this build and I hope that you like the results. This has been built as part of the ongoing Mediterranean Group Build which I urge you to visit as there
  10. Resin kit from Combrig models in 1/700 scale. Built in 3 days. I used acrlyc paint for deck and hull and Humbrol enamel black for gun barrels and ancor. It was not easy to assemble this ship due the bad instructions. Brush painted. The mast could have been more detailed with more antennas and the gun turrets don t match the original soviet AK 726 but it's OK since this is the only yugolsav ship on market. Enjoy Historical facts The VPBR-31 BEOGRAD (serb. VPBR-veliki patrolni brod, eng. large patrol vessel) is a modified soviet Koni class frigate (PROEKT 1159). The ship was lai
  11. Hello. I am planning to build a vihor tank. Since there are no kits for this tank on the market I ll have to modify the T-72M 1/72 Revell kit or some other. The vihor tank was partially based on soviet T-72. The frame is the same, the number of wheels, the gun and some other smaller parts such as headlights and machine gun on the top of the turret. Other parts are different such as the turret, side rubber skirts, mud fenders, upper plate on the hull and other things. The biggest challenge will be the turret modification and I don't know how to pull that out. I have no experience in scratchbu
  12. Neither of these are the greatest of kits to be honest but there's not a lot of choice in this scale... That'll probably be because they are all repops of the old Crown kit. I'm going to be using these lovely decals from Miniscale.
  13. The arrival of the Airfix Mk.I lead me to haul out my Sword and AZ examples for comparison. Both give camouflage schemes. Are either (both or neither) of the kit schemes accurate? I gather these did vary, is there a good single reference source for Yugoslav Mk.Is? I have examples in a number of different books but am wary.
  14. Revell's BF-109 G-10 painted to represent Ex Luftwaffe Ex Croatian Airforce machine belonging to Yugoslav partisans in April 1945. Built OOB, painted with MM enamels. Markings were obviously masked and painted and are askew on purpose to represent hastily applied field markings. The model is based on the old yugoslav modeling magazine history and profiles on the Me-109 use in YUAF. Thanks for viewing. Seasons Greetings to all.
  15. Here is 'Balthasar' An M36 that was supplied to the JNA (Yugoslav National Army) after WW2. Apparently all they had ever received since then was a change of radio and a coat of paint. Many were taken out of the barracks and used by the various militia during the Homeland War in the 90's. The markings are from the Bison sheet. The paint is Lifecolour 4BO. All added detail was made from Plasticard and wire. Can you work out what the donor kit was? The model was made from the 1/72 Armourfast clip together range as seen here. I hope you like it.
