Hello, colleagues!

Today I show my latest work. "Avenger" from Hobby Boss in 48 scale.

The engine was refined with solder wires.

In the cabin on the dashboard: just painted, walked with a dry brush and drew the scales with a needle. There are more improvements on the side panels. On the right panel I made toggle switches from thin copper wire, on the left I changed the wheel and added buttons/twists. Also in the cabin, a corrugated hose is laid and straps are added to the chair made of foil. With the belts, a question arose: in the photo of the prototype, I only saw the waist belts, and I made them. But the shoulder... the logic is necessary, but why the photo was not – is not clear…

I decided to hang the tank in the bomb Bay. I finished the compartment with wire, painted it, and tinted it. In the back wall of the compartment, I inserted a glass.

In the cockpit of the Navigator-arrow made wiring, redesigned the onboard equipment and on the starboard side made pockets of doshiplast.

All the steering surfaces were cut off, spars were made on the stabilizers and keel, and brackets were added to the steering arms. Trimmer rejected and added to them a draught from provoke rods and cones of foil. The rudders and ailerons were deflected.

I studied the hoses on the chassis for a long time and tried to recreate all this to the maximum. I lowered the wheels. The tail wheel was cut off from the fork, made a fork out of plastic. Added a mooring loop.

I had an idea to move the landing light to the right place, but I didn't…

In the headlight and ANO added "light bulbs" from the Spigots.

On the hood "cut" the air channel. Modified the sash. The lower one was open in the kit, the sides on the hood were opened and the missing ones on the fuselage were made by myself.

The missiles were slightly modified: the stabilizers were worn off, the pylons were upgraded, and the fuse cords were added. Missiles hung in a different type of loading)

The underwing antennas of the radar system are soldered from copper wire.

Communication antenna made of thread for a Biser and a bow thread.

I liked the decals. Kind of harsh, but with the help of Tamiya's strong went well.

The number "21" on the fuselage and fin painted through a stencil.

Akan paint of the sixth series. Lac-Tamia. Tinting – oil paints, watercolor pencils.

In General, the set made a pleasant impression, of course there are shoals, but ... you can work.

It turned out to be a model in my opinion, for which I am not very ashamed))
 

Sorry my English from translator)))

Great work. I'm really fond of this aircraft in this scheme. It's taken me ages to get one into my collection but your model had inspired me to get a move on!

Thanks for posting.

Great model dushix! That's a superb example for my own Avenger topic (some time after 2025...)

Brilliant  work. I note you are  Russian. I've seen a  the work of a  few Russian  modellers. Almost  flawless

 Is it a Russian thing?

Well that first photo really had me fooled!

That's stunning painting & weathering!

Now you've got to do that Hellcat with that oily scuffed weathering, unless you have already! 😆

 

Look forward to seeing more!
