So this is my first post in my first group build with my first kit for 15 years. I’m modelling the Academy FA-18E VFA-143 “Pukin Dogs” with the Eduard detail set. Made an ambitious start chopping the undercarriage wells about… …and moving the rudders. Sorry about the poor quality snaps. Wish me luck. See you all later.
Hey everyone, So I finally managed to get this MiG finished to a point where I am reasonably happy with it. It was for UKscalemodeller on Youtube's group build but I thought it would be worthwhile showing the process and the finished result here too! If you're quick I'm sure you could get an entry in if you wanted to. Here it is! The camo was a time tricky to do. 4 tones, 4 post shades, 4 highlights. 12. Twelve. T w e l v e colours. I can see why everyone goes with the natural metal finishes. This came from the Zvezda tooling in 1/72nd scale... It is actually a nice tooling for the price, crisp recessed surface detail. The packaging was a bit rough, everything thrown in the box inside another box without bags, decals and perspex and all. The only way the packaging could have been more Russian was if the kit came in a metal can I should mention that the paint scheme I went for wasnt one in the box, I just spare decals to make it possible. The thread to the build I posted... Lastly the video I put together, it shows the whole build in a hopefully in a fuller light than the build updates in the thread above. Hopefully this one doesn't get taken down like the Harrier's did. You can watch the video embedded here from Youtube. Hopefully the admins wont mind seeing as everything is here... Thoughts? Cheers!
Hi, I'm not new to modeling, but I'm new to modelling websites. It's so cool to see other modelers in the community. I've seen many group builds and I wanted to start my own. It is with The 8th Air Force and the planes that were in it. The planes that you can make is: 1. P-38 Lightning 2. P-47 Thunderbolt 3. P-51 Mustang 4. B-17 Flying Fortress 5. B-24 Liberator 6. A-20 Havoc If You want any other planes in the build just ask me. The due date is March 5th. I'm doing the Revell P-51 in Ms. Marilyn II colors. All brands are accepted, just it has to be 1/48 scale. Thanks, and have fun! -Oliver P.S. Yes that is a Gabe Newell Quote
