  1. Hello all, I’m planning on building a model of the Antonov An-2 that was seized at Pearls Airport, Grenada during the invasion. It’s a Russian registered aircraft and appears to be in a cream / tan over light blue. Unfortunately I don’t have information on the upper surfaces cream colour. If anyone has information regarding this colour ( Humbrol, FS, or RAL match), please let me know. thanks, Tony

  3. Hello! Today I show you an especially rare topic. This is the AN-2 "aknásznaszád" from a Hungarian short run manufacturer, Balaton Modell. Aknásznaszád is abuot minesweeper pinnace. The Hungarian Poeple's Army needed a more effective boat, then the earlier produced AN-1 in the role of cleanin' the river Danube from mines. A total of 53 made in the Danubian Ship Factory in Vác town. As the river was full with inductional mines, the hulls were made of aluminium alloy. The maximum load (sinking??) of the boat is 60 cm, so bellow twoo feets, so it can be used in realy shallow waters and also flooded areas. Main armament consisted of a DSK machine gun. 1980, aug. 20th. In 2004, 32 boats were withdrowned and sold as scrapped metal. Some remaining units are totally owerhauled, DSK shifted with NSVT mg. and still in service at the Bomb squad and Warship Regiment and on duty to neutralize mines, shells and other hazardus objects remaining form the seconf world war in the rivers Duna and Tisza, and the lake Balaton. Also nowdays they get an importent role in the migration crisis of patroling the water borders of the Schengen zone in Hungary. One in civil use A militant in summer of 2006 -lake Balaton And an other at yesteryear, near to the Parliment in Budapest. The kit itself: Howewer the manufacturer is famus for its precise and stunningly realistic moulds, this kit not successed as well as it was expected. However the moulds are overall ok, the lower hull is shorter then the deck with 3-5 mm. So I give my compliment to the BM, and they sent me a longer hull and dense request for indulgence. The spare part was still not perfect, but much longer, so I could solve the problem with just a litle plus plate at the rear. The mast and the propellers's axis replaced with injection needles, but anyway the details are nice Also we got some interrior, but I've lost the photos... Since I am into aircraft models I decided to not spend serious effort in the kit just give the feeling of the river flottila with the rough-and-ready paintjob. Some soldier for fun and to show the dimensions: As a conclusion I say it is not a difficult kit, however having some problems all of it can be fixed and gives us a realy unic unit in everyone's collection, so I highly recommend it.
  4. This is just a placeholder until I've finished the F-111F over in the F-111 GB: I hope you'll wait for me! Cheers Hans J
  5. I had posted this project in the Aircraft RFI a week ago. I'm guessing it fits the bill for this forum too. My apologies for the repost. Cheers, Alex. The Antonov An-2 was widely used in Russia, and neighboring countries. A hardy, easily maintained, Short-Takeoff-Landing aircraft, it proved to be a life-line to many far flung rural communities. This little vignette is supposed to reflect the aircraft in that vital role. Thanks for watching! Cheers, Alex.
  6. The Antonov An-2 was widely used in Russia, and neighboring countries. A hardy, easily maintained, Short-Takeoff-Landing aircraft, it proved to be a life-line to many far flung rural communities. This little vignette is supposed to reflect the aircraft in that vital role. The Build: There was some minor scratch-building attempted on the aircraft: The cabin door was molded closed, so it was opened and a basic interior was created before joining the halves together. The engine was detailed a little as it's visible thru the front. The kit was missing the prominent wing-flap hinges, so they were created from 0.5mm styrene sheet. A bi-plane without rigging is no bi-plane at all, so despite the 1/144 scale, it was worth the effort. The cockpit frame was created with decals, unfortunately that area is one of the weaker points of the build. The rest of the scene is scratch built. The base was made from epoxy-putty, with real stones,graded sifted soil and match-sticks for the fencing. Static grass and colored saw-dust was used for the ground cover. Twisted wire and brush bristles dusted with colored saw-dust made the conifer trees. The chocks, access ladder and crates were built from stretched sprue, styrene sheet and choice expletives. Barrels were just bits of sprue. The man and dog were made from styrene sheet and stretched sprue. The man measures around 1cm in height, and had me cross-eyed for a few days after making him. On to the photos! Thanks for watching! Cheers, Alex.
  7. Hi I have posted some NATO QRA pictures and some visiting Warthogs from my recent Centre of Aviation Photography assignment to Šiaulia, but I thought you might like to see some of the Lithuanian assets and vehicles as well as some monochrome Hungarian Gripens..... Thanks for looking.

  9. Antonov AN-2 Detail Sets 1:48 Quickboost for HobbyBoss We have here another five sets released by Aires, in the Quickboost range. This time for the Hobbyboss Antonov An-2 to give it that extra bit of detail that can really make a model. The modeller can use as many or as little of these sets as they see fit and they don’t have to buy a big set, not all of which may be used. Each item/s are contained in a poly sleeve that Quickboost regularly use with a card backing. Not too much protection then, except that most of the parts are on their moulding blocks and protected by solid uprights. The Engine (QB 48 542) It contains the single ASz-62IR 9 cylinder single row engine. The moulded detail is very nice including the cylinder cooling fins, bolt heads and other details on the crankcase. The modeller will still need to add the wiring harness and other details, but it is a good base to start from. Cowl Flaps (QB 48 533). If you’re going to change the engine you may as well change the cowl flaps too. These well moulded examples have really fine trailing edges and are moulded in banks of three so they shouldn’t tax the modeller too much with fitting. Air Intakes and Oil Radiator (QB 48 534), provides a very nicely moulded set of three air intakes, each hollowed out for that correct look. It also provides a replacement oil cooler radiator. Each end is hollowed out to the radiator and the radiator even has the grid pattern moulded onto it. Each part is easily removed from the casting block and shouldn’t take more than a few swipes of a sanding stick to clean up. Exhaust (QB 48 535), contains a direct replacement exhaust and fairing. The exhaust is nearly hollow all the way through giving a great look along with the very thin sidewalls. Floodlight (QB 48 543), contains three replacement floodlights, each beautifully moulded right down to the bulbs. All the modeller has to add is a lens for which a drop of Klear or Glue N Glaze. Conclusion Quickboost seem to be really knocking these small but very useful sets out. The Hobbyboss kit is already very nice out of the box, but these sets will add that little something extra to enhance the model. Highly recommended.

  10. Second time looks a bit to heavy for my liking!! http://www.avsimrus.com/f/on-the-ground-videos-99/krasavcheg-50446.html?action=viewonline
  11. Italeri kit with some Extratech etched brass, most of it wouldn't have been seen so I didn't bother! My first biplane for about 40 years and the first one I've ever rigged, so a couple of challenges. Couldn't resist this scheme even though it was tricky to mask and all the decals are my own artwork. Painted with Halfords and Humbrol. Steve
