  1. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is my 1/72 Zvezda Yak-3, built with Eduard phot etch, Armory wheels, Rob Taurus vacu and Quickboost spinner. Markings are from Begemot 'Yak-3 Family' sheet, representing an aircraft of 303. Fighter Division, 3rd Belorussian Front, spring 1945. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. "White 19" was an early production aircraft, carrying only one UB machine gun in the cowling. I filled the recess of the gun opening on the right side and removed the small fairing behind. Thanks for your interest in this topic! Best greetings from Vienna.

  3. Good Afternoon guys, I bring to you a new project, the Yakolev Yak-38 Forger. The kit is made by Hobbyboss of China in 1/48 scale. The chosen version is yellow 53 use as part of the aircraft evaluation program in the Afgan War in the 70's and earlies 80's. This is a post construction post because it's finnished and it participated in the last IPMS Venezuela 2016 where it became frist place winner in the quarter scale sub-cathegory. If anyone is interested in watching the pictures from the event you can click in the following link: https://www.facebook.com/pg/RumbasVenezuela/photos/?tab=album&album_id=10154756915024419
  4. Hi Guys, Here you go the last pictures of my Yakolev Yak-38 Forger or "Harrierski" as it was deployed in Afghanistan in the 80's. You may also look for it in the "Work In Progress" section of the Aviation Forums or clicking at this link http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235013202-yakolev-yak-38-forger-hobbyboss-148/#comment-2565902 Greetings Antonio
  5. Hello, this is Czech manufacturer Brengun's new-ish 1/72 Yakolew Yak-1, Series 2, 1942 production. This kit is a little bit more expensive then your average short-run model - you'll find out why as soon as you open the box. It contains a very nice photo etch fret with finely detailed parts for the interior, the landing gear covers as well as lower wing surface panels. The box offers three decal options, all of them in the usual (and rather unspectacular) Green/Dark Grey scheme. I used Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics for painting, choosing H303 for the Green and H331 for the darker colour. According to the 'scale effect', I used H331 Dark Grey (with a drop of White added for the faded effect) instead of Black. The fit is unproblematic, all the interior bits go into the fuselage without extra work. You'll have to sand down the wing roots a little bit, to make the upper wings click into place without tension. While the Yak-1 is a rather unspectacular aircraft, I'm quite happy that Brengun provide us with an up-to-date rendition. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel (IGM Cars & Bikes). Cheers from Vienna!
  6. Hi, usually I do not touch "Snap Fit" kits, since I had some rather disappointing experiences (with tanks) before. Now the new Zvezda model of the Yak-3 is a totally different league. Apart from the fact that you actually can assemble the whole model without a drop of glue, it also provides sufficient detail and good measurement - and there's even aftermarket accessories available from the likes of Eduard, Rob Taurus and CMK. I confess I did use glue on some parts, like the landing gear and some small pieces, just to make sure they don't go astray. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, the decals are from the box. I had some reservations about their quality, as there was a yellow-ish tone on the carrier film. All of this disappeared when I put the markings on, so no worries here. There seem to be different interpretations of this particular scheme, some sources recommend a red spinner with white tail lines, while Zvezda suggest grey spinner and yellow stripes. I went with their instructions. It represents the plane of Lt. S. I. Rogovoy, of 64th GIAP / 4th GIAD, on the 2nd Baltic Front, autumn 1944. The pitot tube was replaced by a piece of wire. Thanks for your interest. Best wishes from Vienna, Roman
