  1. All bets are off ! It is rumoured to be a - money maker - unpreviously announced kit. Source: https://www.facebook.com/Kineticmodel/posts/1244366542397121 V.P.
  2. Hello folks, The Tornado has just cleared the bench, I started a big beastie: Kinetic Flanker D. Some friends warned me this kit was a pain in the sub-tropical regions, some others told me it was a breeze, I had to see by myself. So. Paints are from Mr Paint. The cockpit details have been done using Posca ink pens. The instrument panel was a bit more entertaining: first a coat of laquer white, then Tamiya acrylic black. The instruments were masked with disks of tape (I love my DSPIAE circle cutter), then the panel was sprayed with Mr Paint Sukhoi interior colour. Some creative scratching on the bezels later, and with details picked out with Posca pens: TBH, it was an exercise in futility, as the instrument panel is about invisible from the outside... Then, the main wheel well walls. Chassis red as a base, and piping highlighted in yellow. The cockit as it sits in the fuselage: The wheel well: The front wheel well: The fuselage taped together: So far, I'm more on the pain in the nether regions side, but if I resist the urge to blast it to tiny little bits (I've had one ejection seat explosion so far...), it should be a hell of a beast. Ah, I forgot: I wish the people in charge of the instruction booklet live in an entertaining Garth Ennis' nightmare. Cheers, S.
  3. #1/2020 Let the new season begin! Kinetic kit, needs some filler, a molding issue appeared on the left side of the tail fin in the area of the leading edge. The tip tanks are one piece parts and molded both the same way, to say both for one side and not differently molded for different sides. Some work to make the "wrong" one fit, you may see it on the frontal pic, the tip tanks have a slightly different tilt. Used a resin seat from the Wolfpack edition of the Kinetic kit. Decals for the main markings from Print Scale, not that bad but took a while to losen from the carrier paper and tended to wrap. Stencils were taken from the kit. MRP White and Dark Aluminium used for the NMF. Build thread here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235062626-persian-thunder148-northrop-f-5a-freedom-fighter-imperial-iranian-airforce/ In the early 60ies Iran looked for an aicraft to replace the aging F-84 and F-86 fleet. They found it in the F-5. The first batch of F-5A and F-5B were delivered on Dec. 6th 1964, the last ones were delivered in 1971, some in NMF and some already in Asia Minor camo. The NMF ones were soon camouflaged too. iran was the first export customer of the F-5. When the IIAF received the newer F-5E/F and F-4D/E, Iran and the USA negotiated, under project Enhance and Enhance-plus, to deliver most of the old Iranian F-5s to other US allies, especially to South Vietnam.

  4. After the IIAF T-33 is finished (gonna post it in RFI tomorrow), my father starts the next IIAF project. Because it still takes some time until the first ever 1/48 decals for an IIAF F-5E are released by Hi-Decal, we decided my dad should do an imperial F-5A using the Kinetic kit with Printscale decals.

  5. Last of my three recent finished models is this F-16 aggressor of the US Navy from the Eduard (Kinetic) kit. Difficult kit to build but looks the part when finished! Paint job was fun to mask too! I used AK paints for this build. Thanks for looking! Chris
  6. After months and months of searching (basically since the aircraft was released for DCS in 2018,) I finally was able to get my hands on this beauty! Of course, the "bug" needs no introduction, currently flying for a number of foreign Air Forces. I apologise for having already started her before starting this thread, but the excitement was too great!
  7. Since today (May 6th, 2012) the Lucky Model website proposes the Kinetic 1/48th Northrop F-5A/CF-5A/NF-5A Freedom Fighter kit (ref. K48020) as pre-ordable. Kinetic being closely related to Lucky Model, such advertisement indicates usually a very soon release of the kit. Source: http://www.luckymodel.com/scale.aspx?item_no=KI-K48020 Price P&P incl. : +/- £ 19.00!

  9. It was a strong rumour, now confirmed by R. Chung, the Kinetic boss himself, in ARC forums. After the Sea Harrier FRS.1 (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234990951-sea-harrier-frs1-148/) & FA.2 (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234968544-sea-harrier-fa2-148/), the two seat Harrier T.2/T.4/T.8 (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234999966-148-bae-harrier-t2t4t8-by-kinetic-release-in-2016), Kinetic is quite logically to produce 1/48th Hawker Siddeley/BAe Harrier GR.1/GR.3 kits. So time to open a dedicated thread, I think. Source: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=287539&view=findpost&p=2798826 V.P.
  10. Here is a build of the Kinetic M-346 Master in the colours of the Republic of Singapore Air Force, albeit with a special scheme tail celebrating 20 years of training partnership with the French Air Force. In addition to the home-made decals for the tail, I also included the Yahu cockpit set. Aside from that, it's entirely from the box contents. Some of you will know that this is the first kit from the new "Gold Standard" in the Kinetic range and thus sets expectations for better quality. I think it meets mine and there really are no dramas putting the kit together, except the ones of your own making (e.g. trying to figure out the main undercarriage arrangements, just like the Rafale. You shouldn't need any filler and there's more than enough reference photos around for detailing beyond the kit. It's brush-painted with Hataka and Vallejo acrylics and finished with a Winsor & Newton matt varnish. Minimal weathering applied. My thanks to Tim for help with the tail decals. A delightful little kit of an interesting aircraft and I recommend you have a go at building one. As ever comments are welcome.
  11. Hi all here is one of my recent work completed : a mirage IIIE 3-IO N°547 based at Nancy Ochey during the eighties : EC 1/3 Navarre. equipped with anti radar missile AS37 and counter measures pods PHIMAT and BARAX. happy to hear your advices. olivier
  12. as if I would not have to do enough elsewhere... but where else should I build one of these? not sure yet on the Squadron, but a grey one I'd like! maybe 3/75 Sdqu at Butterworth to even better fit to the Asian frontline topic? and I'd probably load t for some attack mission using the Kinetic RPK-10 with 2 Snakeeyes each? a 1300l tank on the center (from an AMk Kfir should do well I guess!) and Eduard Magic Missiles on canted Mirage IIIO 3 /75 Squadron, RAAF Butterworth, Malaysia that is what I have found in my stock that could be useful ? what puzzles me a bit is the ejection seat... acording to the above brilliant book , an MK6 should be fitted from 1981 instead of an Mk4.... left Mk4 from SBS, mid Mk4 from Pavla, right Mk4 from HPM they are not all that similar and specific I think.... who can help me out? as I understand it, the MK6 introduced a zero zero capability adding a rocket motor.... and double hand rails in addition to some additional part on the rear rail.... interesting accident story by the way: http://www.3squadron.org.au/subpages/Last_Sacrifice.htm RAAF serials: http://www.adf-serials.com.au/3a3.htm
  13. #31/2015 And another one finished. Kinetic kit mostly oob, nose guns and rocket pods were donoured by the AMK kit. Seatbelts were made of masking tape. The camo was done with Tamiya XF-52 Flat Earth and a mix of XF-17 Sea Blue with XF-18 Medium Blue. For the 6-Day-War in 1967, the Israelis equipped their Fougas with weapons and used them in the ground attack role.

  17. These groupbuilds are coming thick and fast. Still to complete my entry in the Maritime Patrol GB and yet to start my DC-3/C-47 STGB entry. My plan for this GB is to build Kinetic's 1/48 T-45 Goshawk. I have some aftermarket decals to complete it as an aircraft of VT-22 'Golden Eagles'.

    T-45 Goshawk

    Hi Chaps, I really enjoyed the 2 Hawk builds so with my Meteor NF11 nearly complete in the Specialist GB and another 2 weeks before the Lockheed GB I've decided to go for a 3rd entry to this GB. Subject will be the US version T-45. There's only one scheme seen so far so unless I find some pictures of the prototypes then this will be white and red. The kit today. Box crushed in a suitcase last summer between the big H and Bangkok. Colin
  19. Hi Guys, Here is my Kinetic NF-5A, a nice kit but it requires some tlc! And some extra work is required to make it more like a real NF-5A, since the NF differed a bit from the the standard F-5. The LEF's needed an extra "edge" at the widest part, the ECM knobs on the tail differed in height on each side(and are of a different shape), and the cockpit IP needed a so called "Roller map", a system attached to a Doppler radar which consisted of a paper map, and a couple of other small details were added. I chose to give it the so called "zebra" scheme which some of the NF-5's received in the middle eighties. Always liked this scheme so I needed a model of it! The tanks under the wings are in the initial camouflages colors and the centerline tank is in the definitive grey scheme. Decals are from Dutch Decal, seat is from Wolfpack and the wheels are from RESkit. Erik
  20. We have just taken delivery of a selection of Kinetic kits with more due soon. Check out the selection here! https://www.wonderlandmodels.com/brands/kinetic/
  21. Detail set for Kinetic Su-33 Flanker-D in 1/48. Made of steel with a thickness of 0.05 mm.
  22. The Kinetic Harrier is at long last complete. Kit has been fighting all the way, with fiddly assembly and confusing instructions, a good documentation is needed to avoid the version mix. Decals, however are a dream. But in the end it's a Harrier and certainly a gain over the old Airfix kit. Painted with Gunze acrylics, (H333 extra dark sea grey), been adding the Neomega cockpit, initially intended for the old Airfix kit. Complete photo album of the build can be found here : SHAR build photo Hope you'll like her. Best, Stef (#6)
  23. Hallo again This here is my third Kfir in 1/48. For cutting extra fine resin parts I use the US-cutter. So I can get out every resin part. For sawing I use japaneses saws, which reduce the volume of chips to 20% of the 100% to normal saws, you are used to have or we comonly buy. The first was an Italeri with a conversation set from Isracast several years ago. The second you may see on the forum, was from ANK. This third one is from Kinetic with resin parts from Wingman (cockpit) and Aires (exhaust, scoops and antennas and pitot). The plastic is very different to AMK. In every sense. I do not want to judge it. But I can tell, that the main fuselage is more accurate, as in the AMK. The lever mechanism for the two small wheelbay doors is also there. This was a missing part on AMK. The installation for the main gear strut is also better. We can see the finished a/c and then you may decide it. The resin cockpit including front wheelbay is accurate. The really sad point is, that the left side console aft the throttle is a worse molding! I painted all the cockpit tube by airbrush in C308 and C2. All details later on by brush. The air intake I did preassemble, spraying and total gap filling and grinding before any installation in the fuselage. The gap is too big. Cockpit installation is easy and fuselage completion too. But one point to remark: The Aires nozzle needs some surgery inside the support of the nozzle and tube! Now after grinding the assembled a/c I put on some surfacer on the gaps underwing, and on spots, which I filed already with CA. Now I sprayed the glasses and do final painting on the ejection seat. Here it is my intention, to show a nearly clean a/c, just with supersonic tanks on the wings. Maybe I add the launcher for the Python 3. The four airbrakes I will not close entirely just a little bit open. The flaps are in down position. Since I have photos from the a/c I want to build, I will have to pre-shade it according photos. If it works out, you may see both photos. In a few days, I will show you more. Happy modelling
  24. After the single seat variants (thread here: link) next Kinetic Mirage family will be the MIII two seats variants. First announced boxing: 1/48th Dassault Mirage IIID/DS - ref.48054 Other variants should follow like IIIB/BE, 5BD etc. Source: https://www.facebook.com/Kineticmodel/posts/530695333764249 3D renders V.P.
  25. Hello guys, Been working lately on my last model of the year, the Kinetic 1/48 FRS1 Sea Harrier. Been adding the Noemega cockpit resin kit, intended for the old Airfix kit. Iyt requires a bit of surgery to fit but nothing so complicate. You need to retain the kit cockpit back panel, and thin a bit the cockpit sides, and you're done. She'll be in overall dark sea grey, a Falkland war machine. Hope you'll like her .... Best Stef (#6) Clik piccies to enlarge
