jrlx's 2020 models


Recommended Posts

Dear friends,

 

In 2020 I managed to reach again my maximum of three completed models in a year. Two of those were started in earlier years (yes, I'm a slow builder and have a tendency to complicate with all sorts of added detail).

 

So, here are the pictures and some info on the builds:

 

1. B-1 "Excalibur" (Academy 1/260)

It's a simple and relatively old kit. My aim with this build was just to test the "black base" technique. Accuracy was not an objective.

 

The WIP is here and the RFI is here.

2. Soviet Ekranoplan: A-90 "Orlyonok" (Zvezda, 1/144)

This is my build of the A-90 Ekranoplan in Soviet markings, as stationed in the Caspian Sea in 1990. The kit is Zvezda's and was built out of the box. The only modifications were fuselage windows made of Contacta Clear glue (after drilling the necessary holes on the fuselage) and Uschi elastic wire for the antenna wire on top of the fuselage.

 

The WIP can be found here and the RFI is here.

3. Marines attack helicopter AH-1G Cobra, Vietnam 1970 (AZ Model, 1/72)

This one is detailed with Brengun's PE set. I used the "black base" technique plus "marbling" with two lighter tones of green to provide some tonal variance under a thin layer of the final camouflage colour.

 

The WIP thread is here and the RFI is here.

Hi Jaime. Hope you are well. Great to see your builds collected together - and what a lovely collection! There may only be three but the subjects are all interesting and, as always, beautifully made and finished. Very well done! :worthy:

I hope you have a Very Happy New Year.

Kind regards,

Stix
