  1. I like to show my buildlog for the Zvezda Star Destroyer here too. So pictures. The bridge: Lighting the bridge: Trench-Hangar: Modding stuff, the part has a wrong height: Garbage Chute: More detailing: The hangar bay: The main guns: And more detailing: Lighting: cheers, Dirk
  2. Hi all - here are a few pics from my current build. I am going 'full detail' on the excellent 1/72 Hind E kit from Zvezda. I have interior PE from North Star Models, exterior PE from Ace Models, resin wheels from Armory, the JakB-12.7 machine gun and Duas probe from Master, and the Hind stencil decals from Linden Hill. I'll be doing the kit decals option from Mahlwinkel, GDR in 1993 as I like the look of the 'classic' Hind clover-leaf camo. I'll be pushing my scratchbuilding skills to the limit as I have opened up the hydraulics block (see pics) and also aim to scratchbuild the APU and air conditioning piping below the pilots cockpit on the port side. All the kit compartment options will be built 'open' including the engine bays, main gearbox and troop cabin. I have 2 excellent books on the Hind (the 'Yellow Series' book by Jakob Fojtik and the HT Model book) to help me. Photos show progress so far, I'm aiming to detail up as many parts as possible before painting. Hope you like.

  6. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's the new 1/72 Zvezda Pe-2 in markings of 34th Guards Bomber Regiment, Leningrad, December 1944. I built from the box with addition of Mini Art defense guns. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. The new Zvezda kit is excellent in detail and fit, comparable to Tamiya offerings. Alternative parts enable you to build aircraft of different production batches. 5 attractive color options are included, 4 Russian, 1 Polish post-war. The kit decals perform exceptionally well. I really enjoyed building this model kit and can recommend it to all modelers with an interest in Russian WW2 aircraft. Thank you for your interest in this topic. Best greetings from Vienna!

  13. Hello, friends! While the clear coat drying on my Hind E, I decided to start a new - and very unusual for me - build. I choose this kit just because I like the shapes of that tank! Also, my wife asked me to build something not aircraft-related and I got this box during the pre-sale from ARMA-MODELS.RU with some additional features: the brass barrels, brass wire, photo etched set, two paint jars (4BO and Whitewash), antennae, an air horn and the Fido (Sharik). So, here is the box: A lot of the stuff inside: The Runner A: The Runner B: The Runners C, D and G (ah, I noticed some ejector pin marks on the tracks): The Runner F: An instruction sheet, the color call-out and the Runner E with a clear parts along with the decals and wire: And finally, some additional aftermarket upgrades: I think I need to start from cutting the tracks off the sprues, so that’s all for today!
  14. In 2020 Zvezda is to release a new variant of its 1/144th Tu-134 kit (link), a Tupolev Tu-134UBL "Crusty-B" - ref. 7036 Source: https://vk.com/zvezdamodels?w=wall-29859496_2488861 V.P.
  15. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Zvezda ISU-152 assault gun, built from the box. Painted with Gunze acrylics, weathered with pastel chalks and artist's oils. The kit has nice details, but unfortunately, the tracks are too short to represent the characteristic 'sagging' on the upper rollers. In fact the tracks are so tight you'll hardly get them to fix if you painted the wheels/tracks seperately. On my first attempt I applied too much pressure and broke both the idler wheel and the tracks themselves. These had to be replaced with parts from another Zvezda kit (the ISU-122, which has the same chassis). All photos by Wolfgang Rabel. Thanks for your interest, with best greetings from Vienna Roman

  17. For cheatline lovers everywhere and to complete my trio of recent builds I present the Zvezda Tu-204-100 in the old-fashioned, no-nonsense livery previously carried by Air Koryo’s P-633. The real P-633 was built in 2009 for Red Wings but the order was cancelled and after a spell as an engine test bed she joined Air Koryo in 2010. Sadly the cheatline has now gone. In the summer of 2018 Air Koryo repainted their two Tu-204s (P-633 and her -300 comrade P-632) in a boring and ugly “new” livery with a plain red line below the windows and a wavy flag on the tail. This model was on my “waiting to start” list for a while but seeing the superb Cubana Tu-204 by @Malair earlier in the year inspired me to bump it up the queue. Apart from a few small detail additions the build is OOB. The kit is generally up to the standards we’ve come to expect from Zvezda although the nose wheel assembly is a pain and despite the right engine being a perfect fit to the wing attaching the left one was a struggle involving superglue, Milliput, Mr Surfacer, extensive touching up and an end result which does not invite close inspection. I don’t know if the fault was mine or the kit’s but it was weird and caught me out at a late stage of the build. Paint is Halfords Appliance White and Racking Grey with Tamiya metallics. The coroguard on the upper wings and tailplanes, which appears to be unique to the Air Koryo aircraft, is a mix of Tamiya XF16 and XF56, roughly 3:2 but not very precisely. The pattern is “assumed” rather than definitive since I couldn’t find a good overhead view. Decals are by 8A Decs. They are designed for this kit and fitted well. They also include “photo real” windows, perhaps not quite Authentic Airliners standards but effective and welcome nonetheless. Detail decals came from the very decent kit sheet and the spares box. The Zvezda Tu-204 is a fine kit and captures the character of the real aircraft. However it has one serious drawback - the similarity in size and appearance makes it a tantalising glimpse of what a Zvezda Boeing 757 would be like. I suppose we can still dream….. Thanks for looking and as always constructive criticism is welcome. Dave G

  22. Hello, Britmodellers! This is my first armour build since the late ‘90s. It’s an excellent kit from Zvezda with a small addition of PE parts. I’m not the fan of an intensive weathering and dirt, so I limit myself to some chipping and a little amount of dust. Let’s start: The tracks and wheels were painted prior the final assembly: The small details are glued prior the painting and brush-painted with a water-based paints later: The top view: The bottom view: This time Zvezda provides us an excellent decals: The grill is from the PE kit: This time I tried the chipping (the first coat was the spirit-based Rust paint and the second is water-based 4BO chipped with a hard brush): The tarp was the weakest part of the kit and I replaced it with a DIY from the Epoxy Putty: The rear view on the tarp roll: The headlight: The closer look at the turret: The front view: I’m pretty happy with the results and have a great time building this kit! Here’s the link to the WIP section of the forum: Thanks for looking!
  23. Like the MiG-15 in 2018 (link), Zvezda is to rebox in 2019 the old Dragon Models 1/72nd Mi-17 "Fresco" kit - ref.7318 Source: Zvezda catalog 2019 Original Dragon box - ref.2512 - link V.P.
  24. Having stuck my main Tiger build in the STGB gallery, I find myself with an almost manageable work load so the obvious answer was to start another model. I'd mentioned this one in chat but no one took the bait so I was left with no option but to build it myself. As far as I can find, the Soviet Union provided four MiG-17 Fresco A in 1971 that the Sri Lankan air force used as ground attack aircraft during the insurgency. I'm going to portray one of these aircraft as it looked whilst still in service in 1984. The kit is a Dragon reissue, right down to the box art. It is either a nice little kit or unbuildable rubbish (due to being vastly underscale) depending on which review you choose. Since options for the early, non-afterburning small air brake version are thin on the ground it will have to do. The box: The sprues (so nearly singular). Wonder if the later versions ever saw light of day? That would explain the split fuselage. And the decals. I've not found any evidence for the air brakes being part red so mine won't be which saves a major headache trying to match the colour. Andy Back in my (dis)comfort zone
