Aircraft Modeling / Re: Eduard S.P.A.D. S.XIII Dual Combo 1/72

Don't let this kind of things let you down. I recently dropped a brazilian Waco CSO to the ground (a very rare resin kit, to rub salt on the wound), while taking pictures of it. Nasty little habit I have, that of dropping modeling items (kits, tools, you name it) but I've come to live with it. You just have to be a bit more careful while moving around a model kit and that's it. If I learnt to do it, sure you can.

Besides that, I love the way your kits are being finished. Really cool.

Take the SPAD out of the box, give it a look and I'm sure you'll find the way to fix it. How about the Baracca machine?

May be I'm cheating a little bit for it's already built, but I wanted to share some more J-modeling with you guys after being away so much time. This japanese DC-3, or L2D2 "Tabby" was built some 8 years ago. And then people wonders about how fast time goes by...

I have an AZ Model Nakajima Type 91-I in Kwangsi markings waiting to be built. May be I'll start it before the GB is closed, but it has so many tiny, minuscule PE parts that I'm sure I'll still have it on the workbench next year :-wise

Hope you like this unusual Douglas, and keep up the good work!

Outstanding job on that Airco!!!

I have to scratchbuild the interior of my Roden Öffag 253... Sometimes, just sometimes, I wish Roden would do things the way Eduard does...

Let us see how it comes together. Have you chosen the camo scheme so far?

Great work Draken35 and Profa!

Talking about Roden decals, I used the one for the instrument panel in the argentine navy Se.5a I built (just finished gluing the wheels, propeller and windshield a few moments ago :-tri)

Hope to see more of it soon. I'd like to join the group build with a MAG built D.VII. I still do not have figured out what schemes is it going to be painted in, but I really like the rumanian one, since it saves me from using the lozenge and breaks a little the usual schemes.

This is the one I got. And yes I bought the double combo, a friend of mine was to build the hungarian one, but he chickened out:

Now that I think of it, may be I'll go with the CDL hungarian scheme. It combines the best of both worlds :))

Feels so weird going back to 48th scale, after so many years builing kits in 72nd, but I think I couldn't do it with a better kit than this one. Fits the kind of planes I like to build, it's very complete and saves me the pain of rigging a biplane.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you :)) The next is Morane Saulnier M.S. 406C1, MS-314, from Finland's 2/LeLv 28, fown by Lt. P. Massinen, Elokuu, 1941

Great profile! Well done, Nro.1!

Hi mates!

Hope you're doing fine over here. Work and daily life (and a good dose of Facebook) have kept me away from this nice place.

Today, I leave you the 2nd part of the Arado 65 from RS build. Some crappy photos, bad english and worst modeling but entertaining to write... Really, an off road topic :-jump

I'll be coming back and paying a visit every now and then.

Take care, people :-tri

Very nice builds, javier, :-clap and what an interesting paintwork on that Arado - definitely not usual in our modelling world nowadays, when everybody seems to build only mainstream planes... :-flo

Thanks Profa!

I totally agree with you, but thank God for the modeling sites from Central and Eastern Europe. In those sites you get the usual share of mainstream kits, but they also build short run and locally made kits. When watching at the contests there, I always find out model kits built that please my tastes. Here in my country, that usually only happens when a few friends of mine and myself place our models in the table...

Thanks for your kind words!

:-clap :-clap :-clap Great Javier :-tri
I never knew that our neighbours Bulgarians had so interesting decals. It is so egzotic, and they are so close :)
Well, You are in Argentina doing bulgarian airplanes, maybe we from Serbia should try to do some uruguaian, or chilean? What do You say? :) :-wave

Hi Letipapa,

that would be a great idea! Actually it all comes from my love for the so called small air forces. Usually they have more interesting subjects and histories than the most famous ones. If you want to build model kits with markings from Argentina, for example, you have Aerocalcas decals. They're very good decals, usually in register and with good density. For brazilian decals, there is CFM wich a re very good. Both have very interesting subjects. I'll search for the links to their respective websites.

Glad you liked the little Arado!

Best regards!

For as far as I recall from the 2 or 3 books I have on Bulgarian planes, the 65s were delivered in RLM02 (may be 63 but all concur on the grey being 02), they're lighter than the Stosser trainers and Heinkel 51s that came later. Those were in RLM 65 and 70 or 71. I painted it in ModelMaster's RLM 02, wich seems to be a nice, average, 02 for the scale.

Thanks No.1!

My humble guess is that Kirin must be around 2/1 scale. Not very much like the Heller Bugs in 4/1 but equally disturbing!

 :-wch A miracle!!! :-wch

That's me actually building something, other than negative comments on my skills playing the mandolin :-wall

I don't remember if you have seen these pictures at the time, but let me bore you with my dubious modeling tastes.

RAF SE.5a, Roden 1/72, Argentine Navy, 1929

The SE is nearing completion now, all rigging was done by a friend of mine, who's more patient than me about those subtleties named rigging, detail painting, etc.

Arado Ar-65E, RS 1/72, Bulgarian Air Force, 1938

It only takes a coat of varnish to get it finished. Just like the SE, it's not perfect, but at least they're getting finished. Also, let me introduce you to Kirin, the pet cat of my friend Pablo:

And yes, that's a Cant Z.501 from Italeri he's seating on. He likes that boat even more than I do. The kit's box and the neck of my Fender bass give a clear idea about the size of that "little" critter...

I might watch this one today at night, Andrzej Wajda is a great director:

No cheers, but lots of thoughts about this one.
