  1. This kit somehow found its way into my car when I was at Modelkraft Model Show at the weekend. I had never heard of this type but looks rather interesting. First some 'fluff'. The Russian Shavrov SH-2 was an amphibian aircraft in a sesquiplane design that was developed in the 1930's for use as a trainer, fishery protection, patrol and an ambulance. The SH-2 was made primarily of wood and was powered by Shvetsov M-11L 5-cylinder air-cooled radial engine, driving a 2-bladed propeller that was capable of producing 100 hp. Being an amphibian, the SH-2 was fitted with wheels that could be lifted by a hand crank that was fitted on the cockpit dashboard. The cockpit had seats for the pilot plus one other and in the ambulance roll, had room for a stretcher patient behind the seats. Over 700 were built when production started in 1934 and proved very popular with pilots, staying in service until 1964. The kit. The boxart, looks rather cute. 1 plastic sprue. Second sprue. Third sprue. Clear bits. Decals. This will be the first time that I have encountered an Amodel kit and I have few illusions of the work that will be needed with a limited-run kit. A quick inspection of the main sprues show the usual flash and the detail is a little lacking. The glazing is a little thick with a number of options available. Decals look good but only time will tell how well they will go. If anybody knows anything about this puppy that could be useful, chip in. Stuart

  4. The Yakovlev Yak-28 (Яковлев Як-28) was produced initially as a tactical bomber, it was also manufactured in reconnaissance, electronic warfare, interceptor and trainer versions, known by the NATO reporting names Brewer, Firebar, and Maestro respectively. Based on the Yak-129 prototype first flown on 5 March 1958, it began to enter service in 1960. Yak-28L (Izdeliye 28L; NATO reporting name: "Brewer-B") was a tactical bomber with ground-controlled targeting system using triangulation from ground-based transmitter sites. A total of 111 were built. The build was a trial all the way. By comparison, Airfix kits are shake'n'bake. A six-footer at best.

  11. My first build of an AModel kit. One of my favourite types of aircraft, and I was looking forwards to a nice quick build. I could not have been further from the truth! Started this in November, and only now at a point where I'm ready to put decals on her. Anyhow, I would like to share with you all how much trouble this lovable little aircraft has been! I don't know how many of you have had experience of AModel kits before, but I'll say this - don't bother unless you have a lot of patience, filler, sanding strips,films etc, and a desire to create something that no other manufacturers do. The main issue is the fit of quite a number of the major pieces. The tail was warped, and didn't sit flush with the fuselage, even with some careful sanding to re-profile, I was left with a considerable gap to be filled on either side of the vertical fin. The horizontal stabilizer needed quite a bit of reaming out on the inside to enable it to fit onto the top iof the vertical fin. Oh yes - before that though, I had to use that good old hot water method to bend out the offending warp in the fin. Wings: Well, the upper and lower surfaces did fit together quite nicely - just a little filler needed along the gap at rear edge where the flaps would be. It was far to big to be written off s the flap itself! Fitting the assembled wings to the fuselage was, going off a dry fit, need considerable work to be done to the area where they fit atop. Fuselage: There is an interior cargo section as well as the cockpit. both very lightly detailed, which came as no surprise for a kit this size - It's hardly going to be seen. The purpose of the main cargo bay then, seems to be to provide some rigidity and form to the fuselage. Well it would had the bulkheads not been way oversize. Cue lots of gentle sanding until they conformed to the inner diameters. Got that glued into place, then dry fitted the other half of the fuselage to check for fit. Not bad - a little gap, that would need filling, but it would also be hidden by the landing gear belly area which fits to the fuselage underside. The cockpit floor fitted perfectly, but I didn't bother adding the exceedingly basic seats and panel, as they won't be seen once the fuselage is together, and the windshield is in place. I did make sure they were painted in that nice Russian cockpit interior blue/green though!. Back to this landing gear/belly part. Oh Dear. huge gaps on the front and rear edges. Not only that, but it was about half a mm too wide on both sides, which doesn't sound much. but on 1/144 its like a cellar step! - This would need sanding flush, but wouldn't be too bad as not much in the way of panel detail here. The other gaps needed a hefty amount of filler, and some judicious but careful sanding to make them conform to the fuselage. Rear Ramp: Oh god no..... Well, I decided to do this as a nice clean version, with the ramp up as if it's ready to taxi out. The rear ramp and rear under tail area is in two pieces. the ramp itself, and the fuselage piece. Rear fuselage part was, like the belly, too wide, and would need sanding flush, as well as some filler being used. The ramp was a good 1mm too long at the front and back, and was also the completely wrong shape to fit to the fixing area of the fuselage, which necessitated a fair bit of shaving, filing, and sanding. Once in place, there were a coupe of very small but unavoidable gaps that would need a bit of filler. Wing attachment: The wings should sit into a recess on top of the completed fuselage, that is way too small for the chord of the wings. Once again I had to do some careful shaving and sanding at both front and rear edges to allow the wings to fit. This still left a gap, but was easily filled. To the wings then needed to go the engine nacelles. These looked to dry fit well together, but once the fan assemblies were made up and sat in place, it became clear that the fan diameter is way too big for the nacelle interior. Cue files and sanding stuff again! One part had to be removed altogether, as it seemed to serve no purpose other than to hinder the assembly. I ended up with as good a fit as I dared to sand down any further with, so once again out came the filler! No, its all together! She's been primed, and had her paint put on. Gloss coat is on too, and I'm leaving her overnight now and will deal with the decals over the weekend! Now, I do have a load of photos I have taken of this build - can anyone tell me how I can show these to y'all?!!

  15. Amodel kit of the CMC Leopard with homemade vacform canopy as the kit one had a flaw in it that I couldn't remove and homemade decals as the kit ones are for a scheme the aircraft never flew in. Nice kit but very fiddly due to the small size. Thanks for looking. Steve
  16. Here's my Amodel 1:144 Canberra T.17 which I built in 2010. It represents WF916/EL of 360 Squadron, RAF, based at RAF Cottesmore and RAF Wyton (from August 1975 onwards), UK, 1970s. Not an easy kit but the only one of this variant in this scale. I built it OOB adding several missing aerials. The kit was painted by brush with only the varnish being airbrushed. Thanks for looking Miguel

Nice kit but very fiddly due to the small size. Together with the 1st prototype - more photos Thanks for looking. Steve
  20. So! Hot off the Bugle Buggy build, I sat down and pondered what to build next. Luckily sitting down is a skill I master quite well and t'was a clear evening and no clouds to obscure the stars. As I sat there, staring at the stars, and letting my mind wander, it suddenly hit me: How 'bout a Comet - no - not one, but two! I happen to have two AModel 1/144 DeHavilland Comets in the 'stash - a 4B and a 4C. They'll be built almost OOB and mostly for the fun of it. So - 'nuff said - let the building commence: Cheers Hans J

  24. The K-5 aircraft were the basis of the USSR's civilian passenger fleet in the 1930s. Sometimes they were used as agitation, sanitary, transport or even military transport. This USSR L-607 was mobilized in 1939. This machine was used during the Soviet-Finnish conflict to transport ammunition and evacuate the wounded. During the service in the VVS RKKA over the civilian registration numbers were painted red stars.
  25. Amodel Jetstream 31 with radome, engines and propellers from the old Magna Jetstream T2. Home made DERA decals. Thanks for looking. Steve
