  1. I like the HMH books very much. One of my favourite titles is the recent Alpha Jet book. Hopefully, also a CM.170 book will come sometimes, as it was flown by the Bellgian Air Force as well for a long period of time. The Daco 1:32 kit also is long obverdue ... . I already have seen a built model from a test shot two years ago. It has looked very, very nice BTW.
  2. Very nice parts! I will order those for sure! Please don´t forget the old 16S210 AIM-9 launchers for and -16. Those, who are owning a Tamiya 1:32 Thunderbirds F-16C Block 25/32 kit would need those to build a camouflaged line jet.
  3. The second seat I received is a MB Mk.4 ERM for a Mirage IIIE/BE/RD in 1:32. As the one shown above, the quality is top notch! included with the set is an excellent instruction leaflet with multiview drawings in colour and a painting guide for Mr. Color and Tamiya paints. For the future, I will order more from this manufacturer. The line will be extended with more seats.
  4. Shown here is the Sparkit MB Mk.F7AF for an Aeronavale F-8P Crusader in 1:32
  5. Since a couple of months, a new manufacturer for aircraft resin accesories from France is active. Last week, I ordered two 1:32 resin ejection seats and they were delivered very quickly . I am very impressed by the quality and service by this newcomer! Here is the link to their webpage: Sparkit-Models Several pictures of my recently obtained seats will be posted soon.
  6. Wow, what a nice F-16C Block 50! Jan, you nailed the weathered have glass paint and details on this model. It is in a word perfect! I am knowing the original plane very well after numerous visits at Spangdahlem AB, where I live nearby. Again, you did a really outstanding job! It is a pity, that eday was canancelled due to reasons everybody knows, where under normal circumstances your model probably would be on display. Obviously, the 480. FS will leave Spangdahlem AB during the coming months, what a shame!
  7. Very nice model! I like it very much, as well as the original plane!
  8. Thank you very much for your encouraging comments and to LSP_Kevion for Publishing the article! @ Jan and Ben: Yes, I plan coming to the BSMC Show at Putte in December, as usually and I can higfhly recommend this show for every Aircraft modeller! This will be my 22th attendance at Lier Convention/ BSMC! My initial plan was to show the Mirage at the Moson Show 2020, but as you might know, this fantastic event was cancelled for the reason everybody knows about! For now, I consider the following shows, which hopefully will not be affected by the corona visrus: 10 May Siegen-Wilnsdorf, Germany. Show CANCELLED 27 June Kit Saloon 2020 in Lysa nad Labem, Czech Republic 3 July World Model Expo at Eindhoven-Veldhoven, The Netherlands Show postponed for 2021 10 & 11 October Picchiatelli Trophy 2020, Scanzorosciate (Bergamo), Italy 13 December BSMC in Putte, Belgium But for now, I wish you all the best for the difficult times we are facing now, especially good health! Kind regards Christian
  9. This is a very nice model, congratulations! I like the clean lines of this Aircraft very much. I am still having two Revell kits in my stash and in my opinion, this is still the best 1:32 kit from Revell, even that this is now 20 years old, but still state of the art.
  10. Is there somebody working on a new decal sheet? https://forum.scramble.nl/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=149678
  11. Yes, I did! But some extra work was spent, however the wells are one of the better parts of the kit.
  12. Wow, what a nice Viper! Love, that style of weathering.
  13. Thank you very much for the positive comments. One reason, that I joined this Forum is the relaxed athmosphere, the professionalism and the positive spirit here. For this build, I used a couple of aftermarket parts. Seen on this Picture is the brass pitot tube from Master. On the back end of the fuselage is the new resin Atar 9C from Reskit installed, which is a real beauty! Detail on this one is spectacular, it took me two weeks to paint! The wheels are coming from AMS Harold Offield, as well as the ejection seat. The latter was further enhanced by numerous scratch build parts. The underside was painted with a mixture of Mr. Hobby Aqueous H332 and H335 in a ratin approx. 1:1. The grey of the upper camouflage is consisting of Elita Life Colours RAL7012 (nice paints!), which was filtered with some lighter and darker shades. The Green is coming from Mr. Hobby Aqueous as well, it´s H330. The worn look of the lighter shades of green are painted with highly diluted FS34102 from Hataka Orange. The generic decals are coming from the kit. The EC3/3 "Ardennes" Badges are from Berna Decals, which are actually very thick and not reacting even with the strong red labeled Daco decal softener, which normally brings steel to bend! My supplier Mr. Volkhard Waltermann from Aerospezial asked Mr. Xavier Berna about the decals quality and his reply was, that he recently got a new printer, which behaves different to the old one. Earlier Berna releases are of a much thinner Quality. After this build I found out, that the new thick Berna decals are reacting to IPA quite well. For the future, when I build a EC1/13 air defense Mirage IIIE eventually, I will use IPA as the decal softener for Berna decals. The numbers on the front fuselage, tail and front gear door are custom desigfned and printed by Jürgen Busse. Thank you again, Jürgen!
  14. All in all, I enjoyed the kit and eventually will build a second one later in the future. A Mirage IIIE in an air defense setup of Colmar based EC13 or a Belgian AF Mirage 5BA conversion are Standing Right on top of my to do list in 1:32.
