  1. All bets are off ! It is rumoured to be a - money maker - unpreviously announced kit. Source: https://www.facebook.com/Kineticmodel/posts/1244366542397121 V.P.
  2. It was in late 2007 when a new chinese brand called Kinetic released its first kit a new tool 1/48th Republic F-84F Thunderstreak (link) with the appropriate reference number 4801. This kit was later reboxed twice by Italeri in 2009 and 2011 (link). Kinetic is soon to re-release this kit under new ref. 48068.

  3. Hello, Here's my Kinetic 1/48 NF-5A in Royal Dutch Air Force markings. I started this kit in november last year, but it was put on hold for a while because I was waiting for some rocketpods that I wanted to put on the wings. Sadly, fate wouldn't let me have these, so I opted for some recycled Hasegawa Mk.82 Snakeyes instead, that I turned into inert ones. These kits came with a mold flaw in the clear parts, and the wingtip fueltanks are identical, not mirrored like the real ones. I emailed to Luckymodel, and they provided me with correct parts for a small fee. The instrument panel is not correct for a NF-5A, but who's going to notice. I did change the leading edge flap a bit, to make it more like the NF-5 ones. I used MR Paint on it, and Dutch Decal markings to make it like a 314 Squadron one, based at Eindhoven AB. The big E was applied for the 1978 Tactical Air Meet at Wildenrath. The real K-3047 later went to the Hellenic Air Force. Thanks for looking, I hope you like it.

  5. Hi Guys, Here is my Kinetic NF-5A, a nice kit but it requires some tlc! And some extra work is required to make it more like a real NF-5A, since the NF differed a bit from the the standard F-5. The LEF's needed an extra "edge" at the widest part, the ECM knobs on the tail differed in height on each side(and are of a different shape), and the cockpit IP needed a so called "Roller map", a system attached to a Doppler radar which consisted of a paper map, and a couple of other small details were added. I chose to give it the so called "zebra" scheme which some of the NF-5's received in the middle eighties. Always liked this scheme so I needed a model of it! The tanks under the wings are in the initial camouflages colors and the centerline tank is in the definitive grey scheme. Decals are from Dutch Decal, seat is from Wolfpack and the wheels are from RESkit. Erik
  6. Hello Britmodellers! Here's one of my lockdown builds, made for the In The Navy groupbuild. It's the Kinetic 1/32 kit (reboxed Academy) and one of the best jet models you can get. This one's mostly out of the box except the cockpit (Avionix), seats (Aires), chaff buckets (F4dable Models) and armament, which is a mix of Wolfpack (GBU-38) and Trumpeter (GBU-12). It's a really attractive two-sided scheme with the flag on the airbrake, excellent decals by Flying Leathernecks. I used Xtracrylix paint for the main scheme and Colourcoats for the wear and tear effects. This aircraft was painted in Kuwait at the end of the deployment in 2007 but my main references were some excellent photos of it at Las Vegas shortly afterwards, so the degree of dirtiness is reasonable for a special scheme! The wings were depicted folded even though that's not normal for land-based Marine examples, because I think it's nice to show off an aircraft's unique features on a model! The two-sided scheme is also very attractive, commemorating all the units making up MAG-2 at the time. The cockpit was a Black Box/Avionix set from way back, but built up really well. The kit canopy was less fun to build...it's the biggest clear part I've seen on any model, and the attachment points were very flimsy to hold such a large cantilevered piece. Epoxy glue was the only solution. Unusually for me, I even painted up the underside (out of sight out of mind is my usual policy ) If anyone's still reading this, the build thread is here: All the best, stay safe and thanks for looking, Alan

  8. It was a strong rumour, now confirmed by R. Chung, the Kinetic boss himself, in ARC forums. After the Sea Harrier FRS.1 (link) & FA.2 (link), the two seat Harrier T.2/T.4/T.8 (link), Kinetic is quite logically to produce 1/48th Hawker Siddeley/BAe Harrier GR.1/GR.3 kits. So time to open a dedicated thread, I think. Source: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=287539&view=findpost&p=2798826 V.P.
  9. Since today (May 6th, 2012) the Lucky Model website proposes the Kinetic 1/48th Northrop F-5A/CF-5A/NF-5A Freedom Fighter kit (ref. K48020) as pre-ordable. Kinetic being closely related to Lucky Model, such advertisement indicates usually a very soon release of the kit.

  11. Hi folks My latest build is an F-5B in 1/48 scale from Kinetic. -The kit shape is good but to me it was a little challenging in some parts. -Colors are Hataka and Gunze painted free-hand. -Decals are from Print Scale. -Resin ejection seats are from Wolfpack Design This aircraft entered in service with the Imperial Iranian Air Force in mid 1960's and the IIAF became the first Air Force to receive Freedom Fighters. The two-seaters were in high demand in order to train new pilots locally.

  12. Hello all, Here is my recently completed 1/48 Kinetic Su-33 Flanker D of the 279th Fighter Aviation Regiment, Russian Naval Aviation, on board the Admiral Kuznetsov circa 2016. The kit itself is very nicely detailed, but be warned the instructions are dreadful! Extras used included a Quickboost seat, New Ware masks, J's Work camouflage mask and Master Pitot tube. Paints are from Mr Paint (MRP-199 Su-33 Light Blue, MRP-200 Su-33 Dark Blue and MRP-201 Su-33 Grey) and weathering was done with a mixture of oils and pigments. The build thread is here Beside my Ukrainian Su-27 I built last year: Thanks for looking. Dave

  17. After months and months of searching (basically since the aircraft was released for DCS in 2018,) I finally was able to get my hands on this beauty! Of course, the "bug" needs no introduction, currently flying for a number of foreign Air Forces. I apologise for having already started her before starting this thread, but the excitement was too great!
  18. Hello folks, The Tornado has just cleared the bench, I started a big beastie: Kinetic Flanker D. Some friends warned me this kit was a pain in the sub-tropical regions, some others told me it was a breeze, I had to see by myself. So. Paints are from Mr Paint. The cockpit details have been done using Posca ink pens. The instrument panel was a bit more entertaining: first a coat of laquer white, then Tamiya acrylic black. The instruments were masked with disks of tape (I love my DSPIAE circle cutter), then the panel was sprayed with Mr Paint Sukhoi interior colour. Some creative scratching on the bezels later, and with details picked out with Posca pens: TBH, it was an exercise in futility, as the instrument panel is about invisible from the outside... Then, the main wheel well walls. Chassis red as a base, and piping highlighted in yellow. The cockit as it sits in the fuselage: The wheel well: The front wheel well: The fuselage taped together: So far, I'm more on the pain in the nether regions side, but if I resist the urge to blast it to tiny little bits (I've had one ejection seat explosion so far...), it should be a hell of a beast. Ah, I forgot: I wish the people in charge of the instruction booklet live in an entertaining Garth Ennis' nightmare. Cheers, S.
  19. #1/2020 Let the new season begin! Kinetic kit, needs some filler, a molding issue appeared on the left side of the tail fin in the area of the leading edge. The tip tanks are one piece parts and molded both the same way, to say both for one side and not differently molded for different sides. Some work to make the "wrong" one fit, you may see it on the frontal pic, the tip tanks have a slightly different tilt. Used a resin seat from the Wolfpack edition of the Kinetic kit. Decals for the main markings from Print Scale, not that bad but took a while to losen from the carrier paper and tended to wrap. Stencils were taken from the kit. MRP White and Dark Aluminium used for the NMF. Build thread here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235062626-persian-thunder148-northrop-f-5a-freedom-fighter-imperial-iranian-airforce/ In the early 60ies Iran looked for an aicraft to replace the aging F-84 and F-86 fleet. They found it in the F-5. The first batch of F-5A and F-5B were delivered on Dec. 6th 1964, the last ones were delivered in 1971, some in NMF and some already in Asia Minor camo. The NMF ones were soon camouflaged too. iran was the first export customer of the F-5. When the IIAF received the newer F-5E/F and F-4D/E, Iran and the USA negotiated, under project Enhance and Enhance-plus, to deliver most of the old Iranian F-5s to other US allies, especially to South Vietnam. Other recipients were Ethiopia, Jordan, Greece, Morocco and Kenya. In the early 60ies Iran looked for an aicraft to replace the aging F-84 and F-86 fleet. They found it in the F-5.

  20. After the IIAF T-33 is finished (gonna post it in RFI tomorrow), my father starts the next IIAF project. Because it still takes some time until the first ever 1/48 decals for an IIAF F-5E are released by Hi-Decal, we decided my dad should do an imperial F-5A using the Kinetic kit with Printscale decals.

  21. Last of my three recent finished models is this F-16 aggressor of the US Navy from the Eduard (Kinetic) kit. Difficult kit to build but looks the part when finished! Paint job was fun to mask too! I used AK paints for this build. Thanks for looking! Chris
  22. Kinetic is to release from 2019 a family of 1/48th AMD-BA Dassault Mirage F-1 kits. Source: https://www.facebook.com/284153468459310/videos/946333875574596/ V.P.
  23. Here is a build of the Kinetic M-346 Master in the colours of the Republic of Singapore Air Force, albeit with a special scheme tail celebrating 20 years of training partnership with the French Air Force. In addition to the home-made decals for the tail, I also included the Yahu cockpit set. Aside from that, it's entirely from the box contents. Some of you will know that this is the first kit from the new "Gold Standard" in the Kinetic range and thus sets expectations for better quality. I think it meets mine and there really are no dramas putting the kit together, except the ones of your own making (e.g. trying to figure out the main undercarriage arrangements, just like the Rafale. You shouldn't need any filler and there's more than enough reference photos around for detailing beyond the kit. It's brush-painted with Hataka and Vallejo acrylics and finished with a Winsor & Newton matt varnish. Minimal weathering applied. My thanks to Tim for help with the tail decals. A delightful little kit of an interesting aircraft and I recommend you have a go at building one. As ever comments are welcome.
  24. Hi all here is one of my recent work completed : a mirage IIIE 3-IO N°547 based at Nancy Ochey during the eighties : EC 1/3 Navarre. equipped with anti radar missile AS37 and counter measures pods PHIMAT and BARAX. happy to hear your advices. olivier
  25. as if I would not have to do enough elsewhere... but where else should I build one of these? not sure yet on the Squadron, but a grey one I'd like! maybe 3/75 Sdqu at Butterworth to even better fit to the Asian frontline topic? and I'd probably load t for some attack mission using the Kinetic RPK-10 with 2 Snakeeyes each? a 1300l tank on the center (from an AMk Kfir should do well I guess!) and Eduard Magic Missiles on canted Mirage IIIO 3 /75 Squadron, RAAF Butterworth, Malaysia that is what I have found in my stock that could be useful ? what puzzles me a bit is the ejection seat... acording to the above brilliant book , an MK6 should be fitted from 1981 instead of an Mk4.... left Mk4 from SBS, mid Mk4 from Pavla, right Mk4 from HPM they are not all that similar and specific I think.... who can help me out? as I understand it, the MK6 introduced a zero zero capability adding a rocket motor.... and double hand rails in addition to some additional part on the rear rail.... interesting accident story by the way: http://www.3squadron.org.au/subpages/Last_Sacrifice.htm RAAF serials: http://www.adf-serials.com.au/3a3.htm
