  1. Lovely work Max! Great details throughout!
  2. Great work and progress so far Ernest! Lovely painting overall!
  3. Lovely work John! The painting is top notch and spot on!
  4. Well done Paolo! Great build and lovely weathering!
  5. Many thanks Milan! It's too late to make any adjustments now without damaging anything. I do think that the exposure exaggerates the contrast a bit though. But will see what I can do in subsequent builds. The other model you're referring to was the MiG-21UM. The decals were so bad I got frustrated and threw it on the floor. But I got another kit and plan to paint all the markings with custom masks.
  6. Thank you so much Chuck! Really appreciate the kind words!
  7. Many thanks! Many thanks Niels! Thank you so much Alain! Thank you Dutik!
  8. Thank you so much mate! Thank you! Many thanks Mike!
  9. Hi everyone! So here we have it! My first and only complete build for 2022… Kitty Hawk’s 1/32 Mirage 2000C constructed to depict a heavily used Greek EGM. Aftermarket products used include Grand Models’ resin cockpit and wheels, ResKit exhaust (since I messed up the one provided by KH) and LM Decals. I found the overall build quite enjoyable with minimal fit issues and good all-round detail. The amount of weapons provided is also impressive. What I didn’t like was the lacking instructions, general approach to the markings and poor quality of decals. The inadequate instructions are a perennial problem of KH’s and the modeller is pretty much left to their devices to figure out the correct parts for the version of the aircraft they are building. Suffice to say, lots of research and reference photos will be required. I managed to correct a few points including the arrestor hook but missed out on the tailfin… Most disappointing were the decals which were thick and had lots of carrier film while the stencils for the Greek version were wrong. I think the Grand Models cockpit and wheels are a must for this kit while the ResKit exhaust is a lovely piece of casting the offers even more detail than KH’s resin counterpart. The LM Decals do provide the correct markings and stencils. However, they are all printed in a single sheet and each marking needs to be cut individually. Despite the issues, one does end up with a lovely model of what I believe to be one of the most elegant looking aircraft ever built!
  10. Thank you Tomas! You have done a really lovely job!

  13. John, that's looking fantastic! Impressive all round work and finish!
  14. Fantastic start Thomas! I have the same model in my stash and plan to work on it in the near future so will definitely be following your build closely! The seats are from Eduard? They look lovely!
  15. Great start Brett! Looking forward to another fantastic modelling journey!
  16. Antonio, this is some very inspiring work! Really love the look of your Mustang!
