    Looking for a Super CUB

    Hi all, A friend of mine is a Piper PA-18 Owner and is asking me to build his plane. here is the real one. The Revell kit of the standard landing gear version is not good. the float plane one seems good but i don't know if there are also the standard landing gears in the box as part not to be used... anybody knows if I have to buy both boxes and mix them? Thanks Luca

    Flight life

    Hi guys! I'd like to show you some of my latest photos taken 10 days ago from my plane. Yes i'm a general aviation pilot, my favourite hobby! with 2 collegues of mine(both pilots, we are all Air Traffic Controllers) we started the engines of our planes and we took some shoots while airborne on sunset. My plane is a Diamond DV-20 katana, my collegue's one is a 1948 Macchi MB-308 perfectly restored by himself last year. Here are the photos! enjoy!

    yeah i've already noticed that, I'm working on the paintjob now but some time ago i did a dryfit. I really don't knowif the plastic struts will sustain the weight of my model, I also have resin external tanks 40g each, the internal zatco's intake and all the aires stuff... i'll try to modify and verify palstic struts, but maybe i'll copy them in metal once modified.

    thanks for the info, i was wondering if this aircraft ever flew combact missions in this livery. due to the lack of photos I'm doing it based on the pics i've found in the internet. Actually i'll do the plane as it was on the carrier so without the stripes. I'm loving this plane!

    One month from the last update and the beast still is in progress. Due to some personal problem and lot of work I didn't work on the A-7 from a long time. The biggest problem was to find the correct Fuel tanks. A friend of mine lent me a tank from the A4 and I copied it in resin. after 6 or 7 tries finally i got 2 good pieces, after large filling and sanding stuff they are ready to be placed under the wing-pilons. here they are, perfectly smooth and coated with Mr Surfacer 1000. also the exaust pipe is ready... it only needs some more smokes in the inner side. Today I've started the paintjob, but unfortunately after 3/4 of model i run out of paint. tomorrow i'm going to buy some tons of H313 gunze! soon more pics of the painted plane ciao luca

    I love special colors... Nice finish, red colour is always a pain in the ass to let it look good

    A-7E VA-72 Desert Storm 1991

    Hi guys, I've got some news about my SLUF, Building is 99% finished, it only misses it's tanks and horizontal stabilizers. wing folding zone was little bit difficult to fit due to large holes between the two parts, but now seems ok. wingtips' lights are in place and internally painted. now it's time to start painting the beast. No paints available with exact referance so i've done some trials to determine the best colour. the light sand reference is FS 31667 but i'll use gunze H313 FS 33531 with one drop of Tamiya Nato Brown. the dark one is FS 30233 and also for this one i'll use H313 but now with 10 parts of Nato brown to give it the right tone and "redness". here are some pics of the trials, what do you think? the bottom panels are painted in that way. here is the real aircraft Ciao Luca
