  1. Here I present my Swiss A320 built using the Zvezda kit. The kit is OOB except for the decals being from DrawDecal and the Sharklets from BraZ. This was one of my first builds getting back in to the hobby, so apologies if it’s not the best with detail etc. I am missing the Antennas which I may add now that I have some better tools and patience . The Zvezda A320 kit along with the A321 is a great one, as you get the option for flaps extended or retracted, and it comes with different landing gear options to simulate the lack of suspension applied to them when the Aircraft is on fina

  3. Hi everyone, This kit was given to me by my brother in law for Christmas, it is going to be air ambulance as I have a soft spot for these choppers seeing that I am a Paramedic, Helimed have helped me out more than once on a bad job. So I'm quite keen to try and do a decent job of this kit.First update is going to be the usual box, instructions, decals and sprue shots:The box with a nice piece of artwork:IMG_1061 by Neal, on FlickrInstructions in the usual Revell layout and their normal pain in the backside paint call outs:IMG_1062 by Neal, on FlickrIMG_1063 by Neal, on FlickrIMG_1
  4. My second Bf 109 in foreign markings, the first one was a Finnish 109G-2. I built this Hobby Boss kit in the span of 5 days, the build itself taking an afternoon thanks to the use of acrylics and the good fit of all the parts. The Swiss markings came from Aeromaster's 1:48 sheet "Foreign 109s" in 1:48, designed in 1997 for the Hasegawa Bf 109G-2/G-6. The fuselage band came as a decal, and I was a bit aprehensive of using it because I didn´t know if it would conform well to the model. Much to my surprise, it did conform without issues. Here are the photos:
  5. Another project, another Bf 109 in 1:48. This time is a Bf 109G-6 in Swiss colours, which didn't differ much between the regular Luftwaffe ones except for the use of the white cross over red backgrounds. Decals will come from Aeromaster's 1:48 "Foreign 109s." The Aeromaster sheet ins from 1997, so it was designed for the Hasegawa G-6. I hope the red band is able to cover the spine of the Hobby Boss kit without issues. Photos: Box:
  6. I can't quite tell from the pictures that I have found, but does anyone know, of the captured Luftwaffe or Swiss P-51B Mustangs (or even other a/c types for that matter), when they were repainted, would the original english stenciling / data have been left on and in any places where they were painted over, would they have been replaced in either Country's own language?
  7. I'd been thinking 100% that the next plane on my to-do list was going to be a Gloster Javelin but my hand got swayed into plucking this from the stash. The Swiss Air Force get an A+ for their instagram feed - this appeared on my recommendations list just before I went to the retrieve the Javelin from the loft and jumped another kit to the head of the queue I can't recall why I had this - something makes me think it was added to another order as it took it over the 'free delivery' line and was cheaper than paying the delivery charge. Let's see how it builds up - loo
  8. Could anyone help me with the civil livery of the Kondor E.IIIa in Switzerland? The aircraft was in service of Comte Mittelholzer & Co., later Ad Astra from 1919. I have a kit of this aircraft by Choroszy Modelbud whose painting instructions say the plane's fuselage was red overall. However photographs I've found on Swiss websites suggest otherwise: http://www.e-pics.ethz.ch/index/ethbib.bildarchiv/ETHBIB.Bildarchiv_LBS_SR02-10104_461877.html http://www.swissair00.ch/kondor-e.iiia.html From the topside of the wing and the rudder it's clear that the rest
  9. F/A-18C Hornet Swiss Air Force 1:48 Revell The F/A-18 Hornet was developed by McDonnell Douglas and Northrop from Northrop's YF-17 prototype in the 1970's for use by the US Navy and marine Corps as a carrier capable multirole fighter jet. Northrop's YF-17 was initially a design for the US Air Force and McDonnell Douglas were brought in to make it carrier capable following their success with the F-4 Phantom. In the late 1980's Switzerland after evaluation decided the F/A-18 was the aircraft to equip its Air Force. The aircraft was designed for carrier operations so it was felt a good f
  10. Just finished Airfix's latest, and what a superb little kit it turned out to be. No fit issues, a little filler required here and there, a nice cockpit and a wonderfully thin canopy. It captures the sit-up-and-beg look of the real Vampire T.11 perfectly, and the method for attaching the wings and booms has banished all memories of misaligned tailbooms on other Vampire kits permanently. It will not be the last Airfix Vampire that crosses my bench, that's for sure. Hmm... Norway... Kit built out of the box with addition of masking tape seatbelts. Painted with Vallejo Model Air (first time- very
  11. Good evening to all. This is my latest creation I just finished for now. Maybe in a couple of months I will consider to do so wash or dirty it a bit. But in general I like my airliners clean so I might as well leave it like it is. The livery decals are home designed and printed. Windows, doors, warning signs and coroguard are from the excellent Daco airbus decal set. The Pitot tubes, AOA sensors, antennas and winglets are from the photoetched set from the same set. Enjoy. George
