You can see me after 11 seconds...

Aircraft Modeling / I'm an Ace now...
« on: October 16, 2017, 08:56:10 AM »
At the IPMS Belgium national convention "Plastic and Steel", october 14-15 2017, I won the IPMS Belgium Challenge with my little Brewster Buffalo.
It's the 5th time I won that challenge; I'm the first to have won it more than 2 times... So; 5 times I'm the first Ipms Belgium Challenge ace  :))

Miscellaneous Subjects / Unicorn
« on: September 09, 2017, 11:01:51 AM »
A friend of mine asked me to paint a unicorn for her...

As I have a lot of horse figures at home, I choosed one but had to replace the mane by a home-made one (with Magic Sculpt) and the tail by the one of another horse figure. The corn was also made in Magic Sculpt.

After that, white as base and use of acrylic paints + True Metal Gold...

Aircraft Modeling / Spitfire XIV (Fujimi 1/72)
« on: September 04, 2017, 09:08:34 AM »
A new project that I'm starting: the Fulimi 1/72 Spitfire XIV "Belgian escadrille".
I will use Syhart decals to build a camoflaged aircraft of the 350 Sqn

Aircraft Modeling / Bordurian Messerschmitt Bf 109
« on: August 26, 2017, 08:55:40 PM »
Once again, great work made by Dominique Jadoul that created a conversion set for a Bordurian Bf 109.
...Where is Borduria? Well, read Tin Tin  :-green
Neighbourg country and enemy of Syldavia...

The conversion set was designed to fit with any Bf 109F from AZ Models.
If you read Tin Tin, you will see some difference between the actual Bf 109F and the Bordurian one: a fixed tail wheel, lack of underwings radiators; front fuselage similar to the one of a Bf 109B; three-bladed prop with a gun outlet in his centre and exhausts stack with only 5 pipes.

The Bf 109F kit from AZ is very nice like all their Bf 109 serie. Here are all the parts of the kit and of course those of the conversion set

I've begun that kit some days ago but awaited a little bit before posting...
Lot of work to do on that kit to obtain a Belgian aircraft.
The box contains two kits. I gived one to Dominique Jadoul, keeping the other for me...
4 decorations are proposed: 2x US Navy, 1 USAAF and of course 1 Belgian bearing the US civil registration NX-56B.
It's short run but parts are nice.

First operation: the Belgian Buffaloes didn't have a window on the bottom of the fuselage. The clear part was sanded carefully and glued in place. That part will be painted in alu, like the undersurfaces.
I added seatbelts (made with Tamiya cache) and created a pitot tube. The pitot on Belgian aircrafts was particular...
And finally I created the element that will come behind the pilot's seat...

After that sitting, agood beer was needed!  :))

The Rafale M #27 received a special deco for the Tigermeet 2014.
Syhart Decals released a decal sheet (1/48, 1/73 & 1/144 scale) for tha aircraft (ref 48/079, 72/079 or 144/079 depending of the scale).
Of course, I will use some goodies from Retrowings (cockpit detail set ref 44040).

The only problem with the Revell kit is the lack of the 1250L reservoirs. My friend Dominique Jadoul gived me the ones from the Trumpeter kit...

Miscellaneous Subjects / USS L(egg)xington
« on: July 12, 2017, 09:40:41 AM »
A little bit of fun. This time it's not an egg plane but an egg ship!
Meng released this year the USS Lexington in a comic style; I've bought that kit during the Brno expo, Czechia.
Kit is conceived for young modelers; no glue is needed (well... better to use glue for some parts IMHO)...

Miscellaneous Subjects / Horse head: Ponpon
« on: May 21, 2017, 12:07:36 PM »
A very cute friend of mine  :-love asked me to make for her the head of her daughter's horse...
Here are the first steps...
Firstly:  with miliput, filling of gaps and other defaults

Miscellaneous Subjects / Die Mücke
« on: May 07, 2017, 05:02:10 PM »
I cannot wait with this one (photo 1), I've to build it quickly  :-love

After having washed the parts into water + soap, I've removed the flash on the parts, sanded a little bit on some places and then I've carefully examinated the easy way to build and paint the kit.
Having made some fitting trials, I've concluded that the best way to do is to make sub-assemblies.
On photo 3 you can see that some rivets were missing; I made new ones with 3D tissue paint.
The pilot (photos 7 to 9) is really pretty with a nice face  :-love

The fittings tests revealed some problems when positioning the pilot... I resolved the problem removing the gas controllers and creating new ones (photo 9)

OK, ready for primer...  :))

Miscellaneous Subjects / How to restore... Souvenir from Chichen Itza
« on: April 30, 2017, 03:01:23 PM »
A friend of mine visited Mexico and came back with that little souvenir.
Unfortunately she broke them... She asked me if it was possible to repair it.
So, I used miliput to fill the missing matter and after that repainted the souvenir...

Aircraft Modeling / XF5U-1 Flying Flapjack
« on: April 20, 2017, 08:38:31 PM »
As said otherwhere, I've stopped all my current builds "in progress" to begin (soon) a project that will need for long time.
More than that: those last times I had no time for our hobby: professional work, theatre and the bad health of my mother were time consuming...

Anyway, I wish to build a conventional kit in parallel with my project. I've chosen the 1/48 Flying Flapjack from Kittyhawk - I will build a what-if.

First photos: kit parts

Aircraft Modeling / New project: Renard Epervier (full scratch)
« on: April 20, 2017, 08:24:51 PM »
Soon, I will start a new and totally crazy project...

Hope to begin at last during july 2017!

I've put all my "in progress" builds back on the stash. Only one "conventional" build will be made in parallel with the current project.

I think I'm definitively crazy...  :-danger :-danger :-danger
