Aircraft Modeling / F-104
« on: November 12, 2020, 07:27:25 PM »
Well now, since I have I don't know how many started kits it's time for another one..... But this time I wish to keep it simple as possible and maybe, just maybe actually finish it this year, it would be the first and only finished one this year... Oh well, what can I say....

It's a very well known Hasegawa kit 1/48 scale in Eduard box with lot of extras, which however didn't stop me to get some more. Not much only Aires wheel bays, Master pitots and the pylons and the wheels are on their way to me....

After comparing the kit with drawings and pictures I found Hasegawa panels and rivets are a bit of fantasy but I don't want to do anything with them, a little attractive painting ( for me it is anyway ) should compensate it.

The cockpit is a bit upgraded, Hasegawa's pretty poor and these areas are visible on the kit so I had to do some scratch work. The main wheel bays are installed, I was very surprised to see it fits perfectly, no mayor surgery was needed, first time from Aires......

Here are the pictures of progress so far more to follow

Aircraft Modeling / Macchi C.202
« on: December 27, 2019, 06:12:35 PM »
Oh, well......

This year was bad and hard to me, and it reflected on my modeling as well, started a few hard projects and didn't finish ONE model this year..... But I try to change that ! So I pick up a model from my stash and I will try to finish it this year, I don't know can I manage this but I will try.... so the kit is Eduard's Macchi 202 Folgore, I got Brassin exhaust, Brassin wheel bay, SBS cockpit, Aires contol surfaces and Kagero book..... Thanks to the book the first stage is rivet counting

Aircraft Modeling / Messerschmitt Bf 108 b
« on: March 03, 2019, 06:56:10 PM »
Well, I'm a bit stuck with my F-4 project so I decided to take a brake and make one OOB kit, just to relax a bit. I choose an a bit aged Eduard's kit but I just love this bird and I will make a Royal Yugoslav Air Force one, the Š-07.... Oh, yes, did I said OOB ? Well almost, Eduard's PE set is in the game and Eduard's Brassin wooden propeller..... As the first step I build the cockpit and the engine

Miscellaneous Subjects / railroad modeling
« on: October 29, 2018, 06:10:35 PM »
From time to time I make a little " trip " in to railroad modeling, HO scale, big plan is to make a huge railroad diorama on the attic.... It's mostly painting and weathering but I plan to build some locomotive but that will come later on, much later.... I won't start a new topic for every work I will join them all here, be free to post here everything you have about railroad. At first one of my work from earlier this year, weathering and graffiti found on the net

Aircraft Modeling / F4 G Phantom II

Well, maybe the best way to start this topic is :

A long time a go in a galaxy far far away......

About a 15 years ago I got this model on real barging on one show in the Czech Republic, the box was with Aires cockpit, Eduard PE and mask
Couldn't resist, I just love the rhino so I got it and didn't really know what to do with it, didn't like the painting......However during the years I never give up on it, when I saw something related to the F-4 i got it, so I got a really almost everything that can be found out there on the market, maybe the one thing I don't have is the vacuum cockpit......... But still no painting that I like, but sometimes when I got some free time I searched the internet and suddenly I find it ! It was love at the first sight !

And here is what it would be build of

Miscellaneous Subjects / DIY photo box
« on: September 05, 2017, 06:11:00 PM »
I found on the net a DIY photo box tutorial, as  an open minded I am I decided to try it out.... Components are a simple paper box, three table lamps, three same light bolts and common kitchen baking paper. The box is cut on tree sides with about 2 cm frame left, reinforced with plane self adhesive tape and then the kitchen paper is applied over again with the tape. The table lamps are putted on three sides out of the box, to get light on the paper, the paper equalize the light " killing " the spot light effect.... these are some first shots, the upper light bolt is not same as the two on the side, grey background but I will try out white one as well, pictures taken with the phone... in a few days I will make final settings and share it with you chaps

Hi folks !

On the last weekend on September 17th Modellius modelers club with the help of Novosadski Ikar modelers club organized 16th annual model expo Masters Of Miniatures. Unfortunately this year we had very limited funding so the expo was visibly smaller than previous years.... As a plus a very talented painter from my hometown Recsko Bela had an exhibition of his paintings in the same time. Here are some photos, the pictures wasn't taken by me, had no time for it, photos are taken by Siniša llin.

To be honest, it the last time I was modeling a tough projects, one is still " on " ( Saint George ) so I decided to make some relax project in between, to get my head clear a bit. So the choice went on this excellent Tamiya kit in 1/48, but as always with a bit update. So here are the " elements " of this one
