  1. 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 next time. Once painted with green, I applied the pigments into the nozzle. I've played with it since then so it looks more decent now. Wheel bays are painted with MRP-81 Anodized Aluminium, details painted by a brush and Vallejo Colors. Up to this point, I was pushed by my friend to build faster, but I am unable to, so from here I will build in my own tempo. Back to work! I assembled the fuselage, dorsal spine with the fin, wing and the whole damn thing. Now I am going to sand seams and repair engraved lines and rivets.
  2. 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 Whifi for these camo colours/period, but think Ill be building it anyway for display next to the model for myself outside of the whole GB just to be sure Im good with rules etc. Pretty sure I had some weighted wheels too, they may or may not turn up. The evidence/victims: And the very, very familiar state of affairs: Apologies for the rough photos, my phone is pants and my camera has done a runner it seems. I will get that sorted for future posts. There. Committed! Good luck all! Rob
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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, I remain, your most obedient servant etc. etc, Viv PS: why do two and a half year olds wake you up so early? Why? Edit: for early morning typos
  8. 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!
  9. 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
