  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.....
  5. 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?
  6. 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...
  7. 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!
  8. That's superb. I must *must* get one, one day! Top job!
  9. 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...
  10. I didn't say it was right or wrong, all I said was, HKM get's referred to as HK, quite often...
  11. Very cool. I love them! (Original link - https://www.flickr.com/photos/95025859@N08/14751603927 )
  12. Quite a cool plane built in Brazil, also license built in the UK. The Super Tucano is even better looking but this below is a standard Tucano..
  13. Saves me typing it.... what he said ^^
  14. Bring out what ever, just don't bring out any early Harriers yet, not until I've built my Revell 1/32nd scale one, only because I've been hunting for years and now finally have one! But in all seriousness, a 1/32nd Vampire family would be great, lots of schemes around for them too. But if this was going to be a 'do we need it, or do we want it' thread, I don't want a Vampire, but I'd take a Gannet all day long.
  15. My friend Chris Chennell took this, me, dad and my brother used to meet up with him all the time, so a high chance I was close by!
  16. In Butch's defence, 'HKM' often get referred to as 'HK'... I always say HK.
  17. Thanks for the info... does look great don't it!
  18. Not seen it mentioned on here, sorry if I've missed it. http://www.hobbyboss.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=92
  19. What's involved in converting one?
  20. I can't wait for the UB! But I'm going to break my rule of 'only twin seat Russians in 1/32nd', I need a 1/32nd MiG-29A...
  21. Likewise... News to me Anyway, I've set up a new thread for my Bf-109H. ( See here - http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=69360 )
