Hello everyone... I present my latest build from the Sci-fi/Movie-TV Group Build. It is Red Two flown by Wedge Antilles at the Battle’s of Yavin and Endor. This is the ancient MPC kit which i think is 1/48 scale. Its close to that as i used a 1/48 cockpit from my spares and it seems to fit. I did a few things to it. I made a canopy post for open display as seen in some photo’s. It is removable so the canopy can be posed in a much lower state. Like i said the Cockpit is from my spares as the kits used dial gauges molded in to the dash. Its far from perfect but its better than stock. I also added the two launch tubes for the secondary torpedo’s used in the trench run of the 1st death star. They weren't there on the kit, just flat panels. A link to the build log in the Sci-fi group build. Questions, comments, and or thoughts ? Dennis
My latest model is this Indian Navy's Ka-25 ASW helo. Built this coaxial rotored anti-submarine warfare bird based in Visakhapatnam (Vizag). These were purchased from Soviet Union back in 1980.These were ex Soviet Navy helos. It operated from two naval bases in India. One is in the west coast of India Dabolim and the other from east coast Vizag. My bird depicts the later. I had to mix the variant A and B in kit instructions to make an accurate Indian variant. Decals are home made and the paint used was Model Master medium grey. Weathering done with oils.I wanted to make it little more dirtier than the real ones . These helos operated from the Kashin II class destroyers like INS Rajput. It is a very small model in 1/72 scale. It is a very small aircraft and very small in 1/72 scale.See size comparison photo next to a SD card.Added some fuel lines with copper wire. I tried to vary the colors in radome and fuel tanks to show some fading. Hope you like it Thanks Vivek
