Hello Everybody ... Thought I would pop in and build Revell’s Hurricane IIB as a lend-lease to the Soviet Union. I plan on doing this one in winter distemper over the RAF colors. It should look like this if I succeed. The upper profile is something like what im going for. Though to be honest the Artillery spotting two seater is making me consider that option as well. Anyone have any info on the Two seater that might sway me ? Specifically looking for a line drawing or interior photos of the rear observers seat? Also Im looking for any info concerning the RS-82 rockets seen on the white-washed hurricane ? Work wont start for about a week. Im still involved in 4 other group builds with 5 aircraft currently. A couple of those will be done in the next week so that will free up the time needed. My thanks to the Host(s) for letting me join. Questions, comments, or jokes ? Dennis
Seeing the number of Soviet inspired builds in the 80's Asia GB and looking at some of the requests which aren't eligible I have come up with the idea of running a GB that covers the break up of the Soviet Union and the creation of all of the subsequent republics and countries which got their independence back from 1989 until now. This GB would follow the same basic rules as ongoing NATO/WARPAC and 80's Asia GB's in that ALL subjects will be covered so anything that flies, floats, submerges, drives or walks will be eligible so long as it falls in the timeline and is from the region described. So if you want to build something from GSFG right at the end of the Cold War or fancy a nice Kazakh Mig-25/27/29/31 (and who doesn't!) or a Ukranian Su-25/27 then this is the GB for you. If anyone has any other suggestions to make the GB better then I'm all ears, and if anyone wants to co-host I'm more than happy. So what do you think, shall I start a list?

Hello, here is another build from my 1/72 tank collection, was my second (new) one. Right after the Revell T-72. Done before new years eve 2013/14. This is an older kit, released under the Matchbox and Monogram label as well, its more on the crude side by todays standart, but fun to build. The parts needed some clean up, especially the snorkel and the small stuff, some sinkholes had to be filled. Made some additions to the otherwise oob build. The headlights got "guards" over, done by stretched sprue The front skirt, seen on these tanks were made by thin plastic card The turret was improved with an additional smoke grenade launcher, some "wires" seen on pics and the small handlight looking aft at the back of the turret were added. The fuel drums were altered to remove the big seam running through them. The holes at the back plate/engine deck were closed and the "log" was added using a sprue. Painted with Revell colors and weathered with acrylics and some drybrushing. the sand color was sprayed on, the green was brushed on. Maybe i am able to replace the "8,8 flak gun" with a more true to scale replica of the anti aircraft mgs seen on russian or soviet tanks. Not much time for modelling right now, but this was a beautiful day with good light conditions outside. Hope you like it Bernd
