  1. I was so close to buying the Silver Wings kit and I'm over the moon that I didn't! I have the new I-16 Type 24 and it's lovely, so I've no doubt this will be another superb kit.
  2. Source - http://master194.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=100171&sid=b7252e4ad3d849de8e26c4c009281a81 Good news!
  3. I had this kit until recently, I rushed out and got it the day it was released but then sold it a few weeks back... I had big plans, but they were never going to happen, just a dream. So on that note I really look forward to seeing yours built, Iain. Sounds like it's going to be everything I wanted to do.
  4. I've dived into the deep end with my first aircraft carrier, a monster if ever there was one. The Trumpeter 1/350th Admiral Kuznetsov. Getting started asap (build thread will be up in the non-LSP section soon), I've never been this excited about a kit, well not since I got my Amodel An-22! Plans are a full hangar full of Sukhois, 10+ jets on top and a few Kamovs. I just need to source the 1/350th fire trucks for the deck too....?
  5. Peter, that is absolutly stunning. I've got to get photos of it at Telford...!!

    If they do one that comes with red stars, i'm going to crumble!
  7. I just looked myself.... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/112349683992?chn=ps&dispItem=1&adgroupid=45192390362&rlsatarget=pla-331477171812&abcId=1129006&adtype=pla&merchantid=7434894&poi=&googleloc=9046472&device=c&campaignid=861899495&crdt=0 Great work on the Airacobra Torben!
  8. Superb subject and I can't wait to see you build this, your Hustler and Atlantic were amazing.!
  9. Hi Kev, as we've been speaking on Facebook, I've only just seen this as I've been out all morning. But that's the camera that has taken the Be-12 shot on FB. Hopefully you can get something sorted!
  10. New camera for model shows, modelling and our newborn! A Canon EOS M3..
  11. Hey Madhatter, thanks! The Tu-160 had slowed right down due to becoming a dad on the 1st, but now I'm doing the nightshift feeds, it should come back out, I'm just not sure I will get much painting done yet when looking after Flo. ​If you like the look of it and think jets would look cool, Google the Beriev R-1... Cheers Jim, as above I'm staying up till about 2-3am doing the night feeds and then Jen takes over till the morning, so I can get a 4-5 hours before work and Jen gets some sleep from 9-10pm till 2-3am. Sadly, drinking is a no go for me as I'm on medication 24-7, but hopefully only for another 12 months... It is, and my all time favourite amphibious float plane!
  12. Hi guys, Something that has been on the bench for a while is this, the Modelsvit Be-12 that I'm converting into a Be-12P, RA-00046.
  13. For a minute I thought I was going to look at something toy like, Action man and his buddies... but no, that is stunning. The guy shouting down the phone, his face - amazing.
  14. For me, that's the best bit! I had no idea it came with a fuselage, I just thought it would be well packaged until I opened the box! Should fly together really, I can't really see any issues, just a little clean up and cutting of a few parts and it's basically a multi-media kit.
  15. So as I'm building the AlleyCat Bf-109H, it made sense to purchase this too.... I've actually wanted this longer than the Bf-109H, but very happy to have both now. Once the Bf-109H is done, this will quite quickly jump in it's place.....
  16. It's got your name all over it mate! Reminds me, I should have space for the Tigercat still if you want it on our table this year?
  17. Hi guys, I've cut plastic and tried the centre wing section. Fit is good, but it does need more plastic trimmed... I'm really excited for this conversion and seeing as It's my first go converting a kit, it's a big learning curve too. I've painted all the cockpit, but a few bits need sorting before I post a photo...
  18. Superb to be honest, I've only two bottles of AKAN paint and both this one colour. One is thinned and one is spare. I just thinned it with water and it goes on lovely. Scratches off easy, so prime the area first, or like I did for the interior, just Alclad matt over the top. Seems to be OK and as it's never going to be touched, should last forever....?! Cheers Jessica, Ken Duffey (Flankerman) told me about the nose on the IL-18's, mine is also a pain... the nose is fitted and the clear parts are ready to go on... I just haven't got round to it yet, but lots of fettling needed to get it that far. Love your IL-18 btw!
  19. That's superb. I must *must* get one, one day! Top job!
  20. That's a great pic of Putin! Priceless. I'm going to turn this thread into a mixture of several builds but all of the same nature. Old Soviet/Russian aircraft all in 1/72nd scale. I have a few on the go at the moment and think one thread will be better than several. (A bit like Shawn's non-LSP thread!) One of the aircraft I am working on is the rare Amodel An-22. I bought this and it was part started, ideally the interior needed to be ripped apart and redone, but I decided to just clean it up and paint it. Using Akan paint for the cockpit colour, Tamiya for the rest. I've also butchered a set of B-57 resin seats and painted them to match An-22 seats and they look loads better.. More to come on the Blackjack and Coot, very soon...
