  1. Man, I can't describe with my english how much I thank you for this info. Thank you once again!
  2. Hello, Last week I bought Mirage 5BA Blue Thunder version by Revell. I Wonder if someone Here knows about colors to paint this one? Revell gives instructions for mixing Revell enamels which is...well...kind of difficult to me.
  3. Hello, I wasn't able to do any progress photos but I hope I'll restart my Widow build next week. I'm waiting for masks for "Blyskawica" - I hope I'll get them this week. I'm finishing P-400 and then I'll get back to P-61.
  4. So...today is a day when this one finds his place on a display shelf More photos in Inspection Section Ready for Inspection
  5. As I wrote in WIP... I bought very old Revell F-104 and after buying I started to think what I've done and what to do with it In grim and cold night I hit upon an idea - not black but white eagle, nod yellow but red plane - polish whiff I've ordered masks for eagle, seat from Aires, Pitot's tube from Master. Side panels in cockpit were scratchbuild ,exhaust had to de detailed and here it is. Polish F-104 in occasional scheme Painted with Mr.Hobby range. Many thanks to my friend Bogdan Zolnierowicz for masks !
  6. I can't promise frequent and fast updates 'cause I have few different models underway but as I said - I'm in This will be almost real-world build - or as you wish - very close to what-if There are two photos (that I know about) of P-61B with polish pilot. P-61B-10-NO, c/n:1173, 42-39654 Since 31.12.1946 in 425th NFS, but from 25.08.1947 r. in 317th NFS. From 07.01.1948 renamed for F-61B-10-NO. At the end of it's service was used by Tobin Aerial Mapping Company to creating aerial maps in San Antonio, Texas. Plane was emover from service on 14.07.1949 r. Data from Northrop's Night Hunter P-61 Black Widow, Jeff Kolln, Specialty Press 2009. So why almost what-if? Because I can't force myself to remove this beautiful turret with Brownings from Master But to be honest, are there any proofs that this plane with this markings never had turret? Never ever? Maybe "Blyskawica II" had it's turret a day before these photos were made ? I'll stick with this doubt and turret will be there , period
  7. What-if?! Count me in Watching with interest:)
  8. I know it is an ancient kit and I don't making it as it has to be but when I'm looking at it now my smile is wider than horizon
  9. Three gifts from myself This is for customizing ...and this is for birthday
  10. I want it but in fighter mode I'll keep watching
  11. Hello! I hope everybody had a great Christmas time I've managed to do a base painting of F-104 (I forgot how long is that model and how much I hate painting with white :)). Anyway, it is now almost ready to put first masks but I'd like to wait until I'll be sure that gloss cote is solid. I tried to make a hinge for canopy. I did it (surprise,surprise) but not as it should be. At least I can see insrument panel With canopy closed it would be impossible.
  12. I've seen this one today in hobbystore. I'll be following with great interest. There was a polish Liberator and I'd like to make it someday.
  13. Finally someone is doing a WIP of this one. Tomkit https://www.scalemates.com/kits/1125985-tomkit-32001-f-35a-photoetched-exhaust-nozzle
  14. Why are you showing us photos of real F-4J cockpit?:) Chapeaux bas , outstanding!
  15. Well, now I'm afraid to start WIP of my AV-8B. Great work!
  16. I'll better quit modeling and start to learn knitting. THIS IS EPIC! Hats off!
  17. Thanks Well, I had to more detail this exhaust. It looks now like below:
  18. Hello! Next stop - exhaust. As simple as it can be. I've made back end plate with imitation of turbine blades. Inner nozzle is a 1/35 Humvee tire sanded to diameter Cockpit side panels. Throttle stick broken. I have to add it after mounting instrument panel:

    Great work so far PM me if you need some photos of inner live of C-295
  20. Hello, I'm a big fan of Robert Kubica - polish F1 driver. Now Robert is a driver in Williams but when I started this model and bought decals it wasn't clear. There were rumors that he can be simulator driver in Ferrari with possibility of contract next year. I've decided to give him next-gen Ferrari F1 sooner So...here it is. Robert (I've tried to modify Hasegawa figure) , team chief and of course grid girl And next-gen six-wheeled Ferrari with twin turbos Decals were bought on ebay, two additional with name of the driver were custom printed. Model is Super Asurada Double One from Aoshima. It was a pleasure working with this set.
