  1. NExt build will be the Trumpeter JGSDF Type 89 IFV with Eduard PE. THis will go the same way as the Type 16 with tri-tone grey digital scheme (may look to build a lot of modern Japanese armour in this scheme, to me it just lends itself to it). Well waiting on the kit so will put photos on once it arrives
  2. Su-57 Russian 5th Gen. Fighter Colour Separation Die-Cut Flexible Masks (D72002) 1:72 Galaxy Model for Zvezda The Sukhoi Su-57 or Felon as NATO calls it, is a 5th gen fighter, but with the emphasis on frontal radar cross-section, rather than whole airframe stealth. Its future wasn’t looking too bright until the recent order of 76 Airframes that was announced by Mr Putin, so hopefully we’re going to see some interesting colour schemes and modern models of in-service airframes, such as Zvezda’s own scale-up to 1:48, which is good news. Zvezda’s 1:72 kit has been out for a short while, and the box art shows a very enticing digital scheme that would be hard to achieve without a plethora of masking and furious cutting of squares, so this new release might allow Felon fans to breathe a sigh of relief, as it contains a full set of masks to accomplish the task, plus a little more besides as has become customary with their releases. The set arrives in an unassuming ziplok bag, with a cover card, A4 colour instructions on glossy paper, two sheets of masking paper pre-cut for your convenience, and a sheet of clear self-adhesive transfer paper for moving tricky shaped masks around. The instructions are printed in full colour on one side of glossy A4, with the left half showing the main masking of the upper digital-camouflage, with the lighter grey sprayed first, then masked up to paint the darker grey in the central sections of the aircraft. The lower side has the digital camo duplicated on the elevons, and a group of masks for the sensor suite under the nose, intake ramps, leading edges and sensors again at the rear. Canopy masks are included, as are wheel masks, plus a delicate set of masks for the two sets of exhaust petals. At the rear of the airframe are more small masks for panels, sensors and blisters, then finally a couple of small panels just aft of the canopy. The photos accompanying the instructions are small but useful, and prove conclusively the veracity of their research. The two sheets of masking are of the Kabuki type we’re all familiar with, and the set is overprinted with area names, numbers and separating lines in bright red, which unlike the first releases doesn’t seem to rub off during handling. Conclusion This masking set is an excellent short-cut for anyone wanting to depict the digital scheme on the box, and in true Galaxy Model style it’s well-detailed and annotated. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  3. Next build while in lockdown. Wanted something I could build up and leave complete for painting later. Thought of trying some modern armour so went for this one. Plan is to do it in "urban digital" squares (3x grey) for something different, inaccurate and to test my masking (going to print my own masks too). Probably start the build at the weekend and take it slow (dont think I will do much more than OOTB) 2020-04-06_02-34-36 by Robert Worth, on Flickr
  4. This is my Fujimi 1/72 Mig-29, painted the digital camo pattern using Tamiya tape and Hataka acrylics. Thanks for looking.
  5. Hi All, This is my first post on BM, but will have many more to come. I pretty much exclusively model 1/48 aircraft, but have been known to dabble in 1/35 armour. I know that 1/72 would solve my storage shelf problems, but I cannot bring myself to do it! I used the excellent TwoBobs Decals for this kit. I will probably begin my foray into 1/72 by building this same aircraft in 1/72 as the decal set comes with 1/48, 1/72 and 1/32 decals. I did add resin cans to the rear end, but didn't do anything with the cockpit. I probably should have as the kit version is very average... maybe next time. This Tamiya model was my first lesson that certain brand name does not necessarily mean excellent quality. After a lot of filler especially around the front end I am quite happy with the result. I think the blue colour is slightly off, but looks good nonetheless. Unfortunately I no longer am in possession of this baby as I sold my whole collection recently in order to move from Australia to Singapore. Looking forward to rebuilding a new collection here! Any and all comments welcomed. Cheers, Arthur.
