  1. Zvezda is to release in 2020 a 1/72nd Lockheed C-130 Hercules kit - ref. 7321 Source: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235061306-zvezda-2020/ V.P.
  2. Kit - Zvezda Paint - All Tamiya acylics Decals - Spares Extras - DEF Models kit-specific resin mantlet and aluminium barrel. So here' my first ever Zvezda kit which I started about six weeks ago, and other than some cursing around the link & length tracks which seem a half-link or link too long... it went together very easily in just three sessions. I mixed my own version of 4BO green using various Tamiya greens, yellows and possibly some witchcraft. I gave it two co

  4. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is Zvezda's 1/72 Petlyakov Pe-8. I picked this kit from an IMPS swap meet many moons ago, for a very reasonable price (around 15€); that's what led me to believe it was either an old mold or a re-box of the Amodel kit. I was surprised to find out that this is a modern state-of-the-art tooling with fine surfaces and sufficient details. Eduard provide paint masks, which I used, given the plethora of small windows and turrets. I used aftermarket decals from AML, which I had bought 3-4 years ago. Their products seem to have a lifes

  6. I have been looking forward to this GB for a long time, building things in more unusual colours and markings and hopefully getting a few other to consider building such subjects themselves. I have far too many subjects to choose from and would like a 12 month GB so that I can get a few of them done if thats alright with our moderators, I really don't think its asking too much. And what to choose for the GB? Far too many to choose from really and if I wasn't tied up with other GB responsibilities I would be starting more than one subject, I still might. A very popular design across Africa
  7. It's my first GB! And hopefully completed model number four. After finishing my aggressor F-16 in a similar scheme, it's time for a dark Flanker. Going for the one on the box, the bottom marking. Since I couldn't choose between the blue/gray and the eggplant, here's the best of both worlds. As this is an interceptor GB, I'll forego the Kh-31s and cram it as full of R-73s, R-77s, and R-27s as it'll hold.
  8. Good day, colleagues! I present to you for your review my variation on the theme of the most likely boring "picnic carts". I took a pre-order model from my local store, fell for the wheels (which I never regret) In general, the model is out of the box, but with "nuances". For the same pre-order, I got a set from Quinta. There is a gopher. Another gopher - photo-etched belts from Microdesign. Externally - self-made nets instead of the godless out of the box Replacing all staples with wire (Not right away, but I won over laziness: 3) Camera wires Manhole drives Well, I also w
  9. 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.

  11. Not green at all as it turns out. More sand, tan and grey. I tried to build this one a few years back in the Lesser Known Nations GB. I still have the barely started Revell kit somewhere. I'm going to have another go, this time using the Zvezda kit. A browse of BM passim suggests there are no great Su-25 kits and only one halfway decent one. This isn't it, but it's what I could get hold of quickly and easily so here we are The box (mine may be the more recent issue, but the art is the same. I'll find out for sure when the postie has been. Poor postie, I've got him wo

  13. Zvezda Me 109F-1 - Werner Molders Wk Nbr 5628 This is Zvezda's F-2 backdated to an F-1. The build is based on information on a thread here by JackG I've made some the changes as per the original build by Jack (wing strengtheners, removal of tail stiffeners). The Zvezda kit is reputed to be the most accurate shapewise of all the current F's on the market however I found the engineering to be a bit frustrating. The upper/lower wing joins don't match existing control surface lines and getting a smooth clean join is time consuming. In addition, the air intakes requires dril
  14. Greetings all Here's my attempt at Zvezda's 1/48 La-5 kit. Quite an impressive kit, IMO. My first thought when opening the box was "none of this is going to fit properly" - but it does, and it goes together well. Built OOB and finished with Hataka's 'red line' VVS colours, which although supposedly 'airbrush optimised' still needed a lot of thinning before they were happy going through a 0.4 nozzle. Got there in the end though. Hope you like
  15. After more than 2 years from the start of construction, I finally finished work on the Boeing 787-9 PLL LOT SP-LSC in the occasional 'independent' painting, which was the reason for such a long duration of the project. The first decals I bought in 8A turned out to be extremely thin and curlable and I was unable to lay them down. Only the release by the Banzai S-F of its version of the decals, although not without errors, allowed to complete the project. The model has been slightly valorised: tread cuts in the main landing gear tires, deflection of the ailerons of the horizontal fins, "cabl

    Two of my favourite aircraft are the MiG-29 and Su-27. I've been smitten with the MiG-29 ever since I saw it for the first time at Farnborough in 1988, and have fond memories (and not enough photos) of Fulcrums and Flankers at Farnborough and Fairford in the 90s. So I can't explain why I've never built a model of either of them. Fast forward 30-odd years and a Zvezda Su-33 came into my possession (thanks again @vppelt68). That prompted me to think about all the Flankers and Fulcrums I want to build and, having gone a bit mad in lockdown, I built up a stash of them in 1/72 pretty qu
  17. Hey folks, i'm back haha after finishing my easyjet 319, i'm now sharing with you a WIP of two A320s. One is a custom order from someone, the other one is for myself. The custom ordered one will be AerLingus and my own will be holiday airlines, an airline most of you probably haven't heard of. Basically my friend @Berko suggested to do something from turkey, which initially wasn't my preference, but then i remembered that i flew to turkey in '94 and in a split second the choice was made. Since i have a weird tendency to build rare birds or things that are neith

  19. Zvezda is to release in 2020 a 1/48th Mil Mi-24 "Hind" kit. Probably the start of a family of Mi-24: D/V/P etc. Fingers crossed. Source: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235061306-zvezda-2020/ V.P.
  20. This is the first Panther kit I've built since, oh, 1983 or so. As the box says, this is a snap-fit kit, but it is certainly not simplified: Almost 100 parts, despite each track being molded as a single piece of hard plastic, and the inner banks of road wheels molded as single parts, as some manufacturers are wont to do in this scale. This subject has the very early style of bow MG housing, correct (I assume) for an Ausf.D model at Kursk, which is what the kit represents. I've already start on this. The real detail is in the suspension. Like the Panzer III, Tiger and T
  21. Hello there! So here we are again with a "trip report" and whats the story? in 2017 my former employer airberlin went bankrupt. Very soon it was clear that easyjet was about to aquire most of the operation out of my homebase Berlin (TXL), so that was the only company i wanted to work for in Berlin - and lucky me got a job with ezy in 2018. When i started flying again i met a lot of new people and one of the first contacts is now one of my best friends. So to cut a long story short, his first flight as a pilot on a commercial aircraft was on G-EZAM, which will be the plane built.
  22. Hi folks, Sorry for another one. Some may have saw that I just bought this: ... partly because I like Russian helicopters but also because I'd seen Quinta Studio's new 3D-printed-on-to-decal-paper cockpit parts and wanted a relatively low-risk project to try them on. It arrived yesterday, and today I made a start. To use the Quinta Studio set there are a few of small consoles the instructions say you have to scratchbuild in order to attach the printed parts to, so I started with that. I've then gone
  23. Finally...this is the last of my 2019/2020 builds so far. The TU-204 was first flown in 1989 and it was planned and designed to replace the TU-134 and TU-154. It had the latest technology inserted back then and was even offered to the western market with a Rockwell-Collins cockpit and RR 211 engines,like the Boeing 757. The TU-204 can be compared to the Boeing 757 in size.Its not a copy as some may think but it has a slight resemblance to the 757. For some reason,it received not many orders and was build or still is build only in small numbers. Zve
  24. Zvezda 1/35th surprise release in 2020. All bets are off. Source: https://www.facebook.com/Zvezda.ModelKits/posts/2665811490188305 Mi-24 "Hind" ???? or most probably (sigh) as the "Hind" are just in the image background another bin on wheels or tracks (re-sigh)? ZSU-23-4 Shilka ? V.P.
  25. A brand new airliner kit from Zvezda. The russian company releases some really nice airliner models and is also pretty fast with new types. The MC-21 is still in flight tests and Zvezda already released a supperb kit this year in the markings of the first prototype. It is about the same size as the A321 and is build with the latest technology. The model is highly detailed,and all parts fit perfect.It also features a cockpit wich can be clearly seen through the big windows. I did not use a bit of filler anywhere. The only flaws I found were in
