  1. Yes... All... Cockpit,wheel bay, antenna set, exaust and r60 aphid missiles
  2. Hello to all, I can finally present you my last work: it's a Su-25m1 in force with the Ukrainian aeronautics in 1/32 scale Trumpeter kit. We found a really grueling job for a lot of reasons, the Trumpeter kits are always revealed for what they are: toys designed by people who saw the real aircraft only on photos found on the net. Without dwelling on the dimensions (they are not one of those that compare the scale drawings to verify the truthfulness) and on the details sketched or completely missing, the real problems are in the joints and in the brain-splitting decomposition of the kit; a clarifying example are the gondolas that house the engines and the very long air ducts divided into two parts that leave a line in the middle that has been eliminated. The changes have been innumerable and in each area of the aircraft, the wpp monograph on the Su-25 has been fundamental in trying to reproduce the details that the manufacturer has omitted. To make this operation easier, I have also given background to everything that the market offers in the form of aftermarket. For the coloring I used the dedicated set of the Russian firm Akan with self-produced masks with the cutting plotter. The decals are a mix of the dedicated set of Foxbot (completely wrong, I think they are about 1/25 scale ...), of the Trumpeter decals and something cannibalized by the sets dedicated to the Su-27 and Mig-29 of Begemot, especially for armaments. It took nine months of hard work. Here are the pictures:
  3. Hi everyone Can someone give me advice on the color for the Su-25's wheel bay? thanks

  5. Hi, I would like to present my new job: it is a B-25J Mitchell, 447th squadron, 321st group of bombs in Corsica in 1944. The scale is my usual 1/32 and the model is the Hong Kong Models kit. The set used was the set of eeduard photo etched detail sets, torn guns of the machine guns, the pale correction (those of the kit have the wrong shapes) of the ams, the resin brassin set for Eduard's wheels and obviously the kitsworld decals Only the noseart decals and the name for the riders are used, all the rest is painted on the model by masking the cutter's plotter). Colored with Tamiya and Alclad colors. Here are the pictures.
  6. Sure Kevin.. thanks for your opinion for the panel lines, i note..
  7. Hello to all, with this my last job I tried to put all my efforts on weathering, trying to give a worn look to my Corsair. The Corsairs of the Marines were really "massacred" by environmental conditions found on the South Pacific islands: hot sun, abrasive sand as crystalline diamond paper, salt made themselves felt on the livery of the great fighters of the Vought. I have depleted all the techniques in my "possession" (Preshading, Postshading, paint chips with toothbrush and maskol, desaturation varied, use of pigments, oil washes and Panel liner of Ak interactive), many of which used to first time. To you the opinions ... my critical opinion is that, to date, I gave the best I could give and so I am very satisfied. In short: F-4U1 "Birdcage" personal aircraft of Lieutenant Wilbur "Gus" Thomas nicknamed Gus's Gopher, you belong to VMF-213 stationed in July '43 air base on Guadalcanal Tamiya kit 1/32 scale Aftermarket: Resin Motor Eduard, accessory bay in the Grey Matter resin wheels Barracuda Cast resin. Color: Tamiya and Gunze. Here are the photos, Semper Fidelis. :-) "> ">
  8. Hi, I used the set 32006 , sincerely I do not know if it is 100% correct : photos of this model are few and far apart. I trusted indications of Tamiya.
