  1. Finish at last... Great model, there were some problems with engines fit but this had no effect on overall assembling experience. The model is painted with Tamiya and Mr Hobby paints as usual. I've tried a bit of color building by putting shades of blue and grey as a base, which then were covered with Rubber Black paint. The model has no decals,subtle weathering was done with Tamiya and Vallejo pigments, as well as AMMO oilbrushers. Wash is neautral gray.
  2. Thanks! It's very nice kit although keep in mind two things: it's not Tamiya and it's an old one. I'll point below what is important: -panel lines are raised, It's good to rescribe them. -cockpit is quite detailed but you have to add some wires to rear side of instrument panel -main gear doors actuators are wrong placed. You have to use photos, not instruction. -no mater what they say...Mr Hobby H14 is good color for X-1 -because model is molded in grey, you need to use white primer. -you get nice rocket engine but it'll be invisible -both Pitot's tubes are too thick and they need to be replaced -model is tail-heavy and needs to me weighted in front -fit is good but after rescribing and sanding there will be some puttying and fitting for sure Thank you.
  3. I'm building for fun and fun only I have a goal for this year which is 1/20 VF-1 Valkyrie from Macross so I'm building what I have in stash Maybe it will be funniest, most innacurate F-117 model ever. If so, It's also some kind of achievement
  4. Hello, I couldn't find any Cold War jet in my stash beside this one and a Mirage (but Mirage has a lot more raised panel lines to rescribe:) )...and I suppose I can't count 1/28 X-wing as a Cold War jet (although I think it fits well ) I know shortcomings of this kit. I'm going to correct some errors but not all of them. I'll see which Testors mistakes will be correctable without loosing lifetime for them I'm going to use AM Microscale decals. I planned to make a AF-117X out of this but amount of workscared me. So it'll be just normal, innacurate Nighthawk
  5. I've never liked this design as much as 1989 version but just like pokemons...I want to collect them all so I bought one and it's good Cockpit is quite detailed but seat is like old Revell. You know, same seat in different models After some search I found that is quite similar to A-7 Corsair seat so I used it as a basis for detailing (but not going mad with it). Instrument panel wasn't shown in movie. I found visualization but without colors so I used them freely There was no stick, just another panel so I did one like on cockpit visualization: As for now, Moebius set is going together like a dream. I hope that it'll stay that way
  6. Judging from photos of Merit die cast (Sharkmouth one) I thing that old 1/24 Revell OOB is better https://www.bnamodelworld.com/model-planes-merit-international-me-60029-1:18-bell-uh-1b-huey-501st-aviation-battalion-firebirds
  7. Thank you :) Well, it's not a bad kit, despite it's age. Prepare yourself for lot of sanding and go on :)
  8. " You can either surf, or you can fight! " Thank you!:) "I mean, I'm not afraid to surf this place, I'll surf this whole ******* place! " Thanks Indeed it's huge, pity that there are no other 1/24 helicopters...Well, there is Bond Autogyro but I tried to find it in reasonable price...no chance "The whole hill. Smelled like... victory." It'll be an honour Thank you! Thanks a lot Thank you very much
  9. 1/24 UH-1B Huey from Revell (Monogram) was finished today. Model is really old-first Monogram edition was released in 1969. It's age is perceptible while building. Wrapped parts, weak details, transparent elements needed to be polished. Building was a little longer than I planned because I've decided to make little corrections. Instrument board is modified, along with seats. Rear troop bench is scratchbuild. Upholstery is made with baking paper. Also cooling vents are new, with wire mesh cover. Instead of sharkmouth decal I used self-made masks. Surfboard is made of thin plank. Painting is done with Tamiya.Gunze,AK and Vallejo. Chipping is AK Fluid and weathering is AMMO MIG, AK Interactive, Vallejo and Tamiya pigments, washes, fluids... Hope you like it
  10. It's probably too green/too light/too brown/too olive but it'll stay like that
  11. Hello, I'll be finishing UH-1B soon and I have opportunity to make another real model or going what-if. I think I'll go in what-if this time as a break. I thought about making AF-117X project but I'll rather make sth OOB with addition of base. So here we have the good: ...the Bad (right before supersoldier serum:) ): ...and Triebflugel: As a base I'll build flycatcher, sth like on photo below: This strange structure is a cooling tower ruin but some Wunderwaffe "experts" are sure that it was testing ground for nazi flying saucers, die Glocke, antigrav propulsions and other Wolfenstein stuff I'll use some of these theories on base First photos soon
  12. Fighting with flash on almost every rotor part Funny thing-I was thinking for few hours how to seal a gap between floor and fuselage in troop compartment. When I was checking ceiling and saw the same gap I started to think more intensively Well , if I'll seal these gaps then I won't be able to open doors because this gap is door rail To be serious...it looks awful and maybe I'll be able to make it shallower... Today I found wire net so I removed kit part and used it in vents in fuselage.
  13. Some work today... Surfboard after decals. Little tribute to lt Kilgore hat New troop seat mad with styrene profiles, toothpicks and yoghurt foil Seatbels also made of aluminium foil and spare 1/24 buckles. Instrument panel. I've cut out larger instruments from decal, placed them on styrene squares and glued to kit part. Not best but better than flat decal. Instrument panel from behind. I wasn't sure if it can be seen trough front down glasses but...well...just in case Exhaust pipe was empty. I've done sth simmilar to what I saw on walkaround photos.
