In the workshop: PZL. 43 | Mirage Hobby 1:48. Part 2 – a tough kit

Hi All, This kit is a pig indeed. Parts do not fit, the plastic is brittle and quite problematic with regard to the way it works with a glue (especially Tamiya's Extra Thin) - dries for hours. In addition to that it seems, that the photo-etched fret in my kit is missing, as some instructions … Continue reading In the workshop: PZL. 43 | Mirage Hobby 1:48. Part 2 – a tough kit

Hi, All Well, it seems that I'm now on the home straight - only few touch-ups here and there required, and the antennas (I really hate this part). I have to look in my wife's closet  - hope she has some unnecessary black tights... The landing gear fits just perfect. Added only the piping, and the side … Continue reading In the workshop: Kawasaki Ki-61-I Hien | ST 28 Hasegawa 1:32 Part 8 – almost done

In the workshop: Arsenal VG.36 C1 | Azur 1:48 – Part 8: painted and decalled

Hi All Arsenal received the decals, they went smooth and nice, with a little help of set and sol from Modelmaster. Pretty happy with the result, however the blue shade on the fin is slightly different than that on the roundels - but I will leave it as it is. Next will be wash and weathering … Continue reading In the workshop: Arsenal VG.36 C1 | Azur 1:48 – Part 8: painted and decalled
