  1. G`day Gals and Lads Trying to get something finish before the year ends. Here is my take on the VVA-14 from Modelsvit. The floats were scratch, using a solid plastic rod, plastic strips around them and resin cones for the ends, trying to present a different configuration of this fascinating machine. All the painting was done with Vallejo, from primer to clear coats. When the clear coat was drying somebody I love left a window open in the stash (aka the garage). A possum got in and the model fell from a shelf to almost a complete destruction... I spent a couple of days tidying up the garage and put the build aside for 3 months. Over the last week I have worked to recover the kit... I was more like building a puzzle than a kit... Anyways, I put it together and when it was time to put the decals on, they disintegrated! Bugger! I did what I could to save them. Lost only a couple of them in the end. As you can imagine, I just wanted to call it done. May work later to fix the silvering in the decals. I hope you like it. C&C welcome and appreciated. Adrian
  2. This is my conversion of the recent Modelsvit 1/72 scale kit of the Beriev-Bartini VVA-14. The machine was originally intended as a VTOL ASW platform - with a bank of 12 lift engines, no undercarriage and inflatable rubber floats. It was never fitted with lift engines - and only flew as a comventional aircraft with a temporary undercarriage - although the floats were fitted and tested- on the ground and in flight. This is the VVA-14 as kitted by Modelsvit.... This is what I am trying to achieve - not a lot to go on.... This is my converted model...... I cut out and added the 12 lift engines - the floats are 3D printed (thanks Tim ) and I have added low-speed 'puffer jets' at the rear, on the wingtips and under the nose. The radar nose is shaped from a plastic knitting needle Ken
