I really gotta do more than just get the box outta the stash.

Hmmm - I can see it! Need to try some other photo hosting site.

How's this?

@Tom- Great job, a very special paint scheme on the drone. Is it your creation or had you more information about it?

@ Lap Man - Interesting choice! I will follow your build!

Good luck

I'm leaving bomb bay open, because it allows me to install fuselage window after painting the kit:



Kit has different payload options: small and large bombs or extra fuel tanks.

hello,

I've been a dad for a few weeks now. I was afraid I wouldn't have time to make models, but it's just the opposite.

In the last few days, I've been able to move forward on my F-117

Some progress. Started my least favourite part - canopy masking. Does my head in. Too tired to spend much time at it. Work in respiratory medical equipment industry and it's just bonkers atm!

Here's my planned entry. Hasegawa 1/72 Osprey. I built the old Italeri kit ten years ago as a JMSDF what if, and it was a terrible kit. This one looks much, *much* better

Cutting this one awfully close. But it's a simple kit. Italeri 1/72 YF-23.

No wing joints to fill,

And if I go with the second prototype, it's only one color.

Here goes nothing.

I'm currently building the HobbyBoss 1/48 F-23. Absolute beast of a kit, as big as a 1/32 F-16!

As you say, its a relatively simple bird so should be a quick build for you

Hi everyone,

I am back after nearly a year break from the hobby. I moved house last July and it has taken all this time to get my den sorted. (It may have helped that I am spending more time at home recently.)

Anyway, the MIG 25 has been in my wishlist for I don't know how many years and the postman brought it today, just in time for the Easter break. I am building the 1/72 ICM MIG 25 BM for this campaign:



Carlos.

The Warning Star is taking shape now, but still more putty and filling and filing
Not a bad kit nonetheless, needs a little more work, but I hope it will be rewarding in the end.
Take care, stay well!
Peter

@Torpon - Nice choice, Carlos!

Pilots and cockpit done on my Osprey. I will be displaying this bird in flight, hence the pilots.


There is no interior for the cabin. Completely bare - which doesn't matter as nothing can be seen through the two tiny windows.

Completely bare, apart from this detail on the rear of the cockpit bulkhead.....Completely baffles me why Hasegawa would go to the trouble of moulding this detail

Some progress here:

Next comes another thin coat and then masking for the de-icer system and sections of the radar housings...
