In the workshop: 1/35th scale Mk. I Male WWI Heavy Battle Tank from Takom

Hi, All This time something completely different. This will be my second ever WW1 subject, after the 1/48th scale, Eduard's Nieuport Ni-17 finished in Polish post-war markings (unfortunately, accidentally destroyed some time ago). In spite of a large box and a plenty of parts, the build is quite straightforward, quick and easy.  Only the sponsons … Continue reading In the workshop: 1/35th scale Mk.

In the workshop: Ki-43-II Hayabusa | Hasegawa 1:32, part 2

Hi, All It's been a while since my last update and indeed, there's some progress in my builds. First of all worth to mention, that the Hayabusa hasn't gotten as much attention lately, as I think she deserves. Lot of other launched builds, including two rather ambitious resin kits, PZL P.7 from Arma Hobby and … Continue reading In the workshop: Ki-43-II Hayabusa | Hasegawa 1:32, part 2

In the workshop: Supermarine Attacker FB.2 | Trumpeter 1:48 – part three

Hi, All Last few weeks have brought some progress with the jet-Spitfire. The Attacker received some paint, as well as the decals, which turned out to be a nightmare as regards to their application. Any attempts to correct their placement right after their application are almost impossible. The film the decals are printed on is … Continue reading In the workshop: Supermarine Attacker FB.2 | Trumpeter 1:48 – part three

In the workshop: Supermarine Attacker FB.2 | Trumpeter 1:48 – part two

Hi, All Attacker quickly takes its ugly shapes. To get more fine and smooth joints I ended with filling and sanding the top and the bottom of the fuselage... Initially I was hoping, that the fit is perfect OOB, but either it is me, either it is Trumpy's fault, I couldn't make it fit perfectly. … Continue reading In the workshop: Supermarine Attacker FB.2 | Trumpeter 1:48 – part two

In the workshop: Supermarine Attacker FB.2 | Trumpeter 1:48 – part one

Hi All, Decided to start another project (hopefully a quick build), something a little bit different, than usual - a jet airplane. These early jets have always fascinated me: sometimes with strange shapes, strange technical solutions, many dead ends in the aviation technique development. One of such planes is Supermarine Attacker. Who would say that … Continue reading In the workshop: Supermarine Attacker FB.2 | Trumpeter 1:48 – part one

In the workshop: Kawasaki Ki-61-I Hien | ST 28 Hasegawa 1:32 Part 5 – weathering

Hi All, Have just started to apply some weathering. First went a clear cote (Sidolux, a Polish Future), then wash (Deep Grey Panel Liner) and pigments (Gunmetal and Smoke from AK) were applied. This gives a shading effect, probably a little too strong in some places - but that can be easily fixed. Stay tuned 🙂 Best … Continue reading In the workshop: Kawasaki Ki-61-I Hien | ST 28 Hasegawa 1:32 Part 5 – weathering
