Guys, i'm back! This time not with something in 1/48 or smaller. That thing... It's the Trumpeter kit, my second 1/32 scale model, and it's quite huge It's so ever slightly bigger than the F-15 in lenght and even in wingspan, which impressed me a bit. Alright, let's do it. I plan a rather slow and longer build. Some may know very well the quality and what's in the box, but i'm gonna make a thorough review these days whatsoever. Here is just a quick glimpse: And of course, i'll take advantage of the AFV Cl
A lot of time passed since my last post here, I promise I'll try to be more active. Since my MiG-23, I finished 4 birds, I'll present one of them here, next will post in a few days. My Nighthawk was made almost Out of the box, I've changed only wheels for Eduard ones. Base was inspired by last flight box by Academy. Biggest problem was with exhaust painting, I did some research, but it is so hard to find a decent photos, so it is my vision of exhaust. Watch and comment - and please, be gentle. . . . . . . . . . . .
It begins. After a nearly 2 decade search for the right kit, and several attempts in 1/48 with the Tamiya kit, I believe I've finally found the plastic of my dreams. The Trumpeter kit corrects the myriad flaws of the old Testors, and offers a better working scale for what I hope to accomplish in 1/32 than the Tamiya did a step smaller. Life and work force me to be a very part time modeler, but I will post progress here - slow as it may be. As mentioned, the basis for this build is the new-ish Night Hawk kit. Having been to market for a little over a year, there are several nice afterma
Following on from Uilleans excellent thread , and having seen a few other impressive builds online, I thought I would splash out and have a go at the "Wobblin Goblin" myself. Back in 1990 I remember watching the F-117 and the strike damage being broadcast on TV to the world, during the first Gulf War. The aircraft is a source of fascination for me considering getting the unusual shape to fly as well as the technology to make it stealthy and virtually invisible to enemy radar defences. So time to gather some references and decide on what after-market items to add to the kit.
