  1. Mig-21 is the mainstay of the Indian Air Force and for a while now, slowly being replaced by more modern jets. But it will always hold a special place in the hearts and minds of most airmen in the Indian Air Force and the nation at large. This Academy kit is boxed as a MF but is a BIS actually. The build went easy as the kit did not have any fit issues. The cockpit was not that detailed but I did a little bit of scratch to make it look busy. And a spare Eduard Bis kit ejection seat was added to the model. I decided to go with the scheme of Tactics and Air Combat Development Establishment
  2. Revell, (MiG-21PF), built here is the FL 1:48 . This is a very old kit with raised panel lines, which I sanded down and scribed. Roundel and fin flash decals are from the kit, but the Sqn. Logo, 52 and serial numbers are self made decals. The shark mouth is hand painted. Also used hair spray technique for fading and chipping. Paints used are AK Extreme Metal. The FL was manufactured by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited till the end of 1973, this model depicts a aircraft from The Sharks, No 52 Squadron, Indian Air Force. The Sharks were used in MiG Operational Fighter Training. They were deactivate
  3. Finally completed the flapship flighter of the Indian Air Force after years of it being on the wishlist. Built mostly OOB with some custom riveting, and IAF decals from spares. A big deviation from the norm is building it wheels up- So much fun flying it around the house with my son while making jet sounds and my wife rolling her eyes in the background :D Waited for a perfect spring evening to finally click photos in the golden sunshine at the park. Natural light makes for perfect photos!
  4. 1:72 Trumpeter MiG-29 SMT kit as visually its exactly the same, other than the ELT-568 Advanced Jamming pod on the starboard vertical stabilizer. Its a beautiful kit with loads of details and fantastic fit. I hardly used putty and assembly was a breeze . I scratch built the Jamming pod & FOD covers using polystyrene sheet. Paints were MR.Hobby, I had to mix and match a bit to get the IAF grey, decals from Bright Spark for roundels and fin flash, the black serial numbers were printed on a laser printer.
  5. Fun build, took almost a year to complete on and off due to uni. The HUD was lost during construction and despite my best efforts, couldn’t scratch build one to fit. Anyways, hope you guys like it. http://MIG-29UPG by Pranay Kumar, on Flickr http://MIG-29UPG by Pranay Kumar, on Flickr http://MIG-29UPG by Pranay Kumar, on Flickr http://MIG-29UPG by Pranay Kumar, on Flickr http://MIG-29UPG by Pranay K
  6. Hi mates, I would like to participate to my first GB making an Indian Air Force (Bharatiya Vayu Sena) Sukhoi Su-7BMK from the No.32 "Killers" Squadron in 1982. This particular plane was named "Tommy" and wears red/white quick identification tail stripes for war game. (cit. Yefim Gordon, Aerofax Su-7 Pag. 141) If interested you can found a complete documentation about Su-7 operational use in Indian air force here: Bharat-rakshak.com A quick look inside the box: This kit is an Eduard reboxing (2010) of an old Kopro Kit, the model
  7. I have lurked here for years and finally decided to take a plunge and post. So, I have been on this straight OOB quick build binge recently as I experiment with new paints and techniques. I have been working on older kits in my stash and for this I chose the Frog 1/72 Spitfire Mk VIII that came out in 1974. There is not much in terms of details OOB. The cockpit is as bare as can be but the lines are close to accurate. It is only after I committed myself to the build that I realized I was dealing with raised panel lines - ugh. The build was fast enough but I was not happy with the decals and
  8. I've finally switched to my favorite scale and topic - 1/48 jets. This project will be almost out of the box (Eduard profipack contains masks, PE parts) with resin wheels, ejection seat and pitot tube made from turned brass. I hope you'll enjoy following pictures as I will enjoy the building progress. Here we go These pictures are from November when I started this build. I've used Mr. Paint interior green and my trust in the shades of the colour went out of the window when I glued prepainted PE parts without checking it before. Silly me, but it's beyond a repair so I will be smarter
  9. Hi guys. Seeing as my Hunter bits still arent here for the 60s NATO GB I may as well make a start with this and get my hand back in. Its Revells 1/48 Jaguar GR3, same as the Airfix et all offering but with decent decals. This one seems to be of the lesser warped variety which is nice, but I have plenty of filler on stand-by never the less.... Extras include a resin seat, the relevant decals (second sheet stashed to cover the serial number error), a Sea Eagle missile that was kindly donated for the build, resin nose and a resin Harpoon missile that might be a little
  10. A ceremony on December 16, 2004, at Hakimpet Air Force Station was held to mark the phasing out of the TS-11 Iskra from the Indian Air Force. The IAF honoured the trainer with style and with fresh color. So also the "41" with a fresh air fan for the rear seat Cheers
  11. Hello folks , this model was built as part of the De Havilland mega group build which arrived as the perfect excuse to build this kit . I have a thing for twin boom airplanes and if I were asked to pick the most aesthetically pleasing jet that has served with our air force , I would certainly choose the Vampire. The kit is quite good though the panel lines are somewhat heavy . I used a printscale sheet for the decals . Regards , Basu
  12. This is a sweet kit from italeri though with a very bland cockpit which I left as it is , another issue was the panel lines in many places is vague . I weathered is just slightly with a very light panel line wash and limited post shading . I true to my nature bungled up the satin coat but overall I am quite glad with how this model of a remarkable , iconic airplane turned out Cheers
  13. Hi everyone, I'm not sure if I should be posting this topic here or in the Cold War section, so please indulge me a little if you feel I have posted it im the wrong place. I am looking for decals in 1/72, 1/32 and 1/24 for early Indian Air Force roundels, notably, the 'chakra' symbol of a blue spinning wheel on a white circle as seen in the centre of the Indian tricolour. Does anyone know of any decals out there that fit th bill? Cheers, and thank you all very much for any help and for taking the time to read this thread, Viv
  14. Good morning everyone, My lovely wife has decided to buy me a copy of the 1/32 Hawker Hunter by Revell because just because. I want to paint it up in Indian Air Force colours but have not been able to find any appropriate decals in this scale after an evening spent searching. Do any of you fine modellers, artists and plastic craftsmen and engineers know of any I may have missed. Also, is there any good aftermarket for the aircraft, and more importantly does it need it? Cheers and thank you ladies and gentlemen, any help and guidance you can provide will be very gratefully recieved indeed,
  15. Hello, finally finished! here you have the Heller Mirage 2000H splendidly re-boxed and upgraded by Eduard. PE nozzle of the M53 tank and decals are Eduard as well now what is sourced from elsewhere: Paveway II are from Flightpath, lot's of work! Atlis pod? modified from Kinetic Magic II missile form the kit? and last but not least the new Remora jamming pod from l'Arsenal, that is so typical for Indian Mirages! this load out is a possible one for the Kashmir conflict/ Kargil crisis from 1999 here you are hope you like it!
  16. This is my 1st Post on Britmodeller. so a Big Hi ! to all of you. This is a Heller kit that I found after a lot of searching online and was glad to lay my hands on. As building aircraft flown by the Indian Air Force is my primary focus, so no shelf is complete with out a IAF Mirage 2000. I have built the aircraft OOB except for the scratch built access ladder, the engine covers & 'remove before flight' tags. Hope you guys like it
