That wasn't easy, the old Humbrols are really strong beasts 😄 My usual way is to sink the kit in the warm water with granulated pipe cleaner. Works perfectly for acrylics and lacquers, however old enamels need usually some airbrush cleaner or paint remover (Wamod) and sometimes even sanding (ZTS rabbit roundels didn't react to anything else). My Thunderjet and Mirage underwent exactly the same process.
Looking good Lukasz. What a transformation. 👍
Coming in late, but… Looking really good mate. A lot of tlc going into this one 👍
Thank you mates, I really enjoy it and that colour is simply lovely 🙂
Nice color, Łukasz! Your hard job looking good 👍

Got couple of their products delivered today and now I understand why they are so hard to find outside Russia - the packaging states clearly on top: Made in Sevastopol 😮

Got this kit lately, but the canopy is damaged.
Anyone aware of some available replacements (e.g. vacu)?
Of course I don't know wat the damage is, but in the case you can't get a replacement, is it not possible to repair it with pieces of thin clear plasticcard?
That's the Plan B indeed 🙂
Think all the window panels are flat, so in theory an easy replacement...
Thanks, I think I have no other way 🙂

Łukasz, maybe you can build a template.
I still can, but I wanted to learn the freehand mottling.
As Roland said. High diluting, low pressure and trigger limiting are the keys. Just keep trying. Cheers
If you haven't done yet, try to mix outside of the airbrush. Looks like colour and thinners varied. Moreover clean and check the nozzle for small rests of old paint that could block it. Then you want to add more air, the s**t sets free and you get the blotches. 🙂 Watch the tip of the needle and keep it clean. All other hints were said before. Just try and have fun 🤙
"Even when I get the desired flow I can't make it last longer than for a split second"
Do you mean a continuous flow of paint but then it gets clogged? So you push the trigger back more and suddenly it sprays again with too much material?

Wow! Another blast from the past 🙂
Found it by accident, didn't even know such kit existed 😄
Cool. I think this was a sort of an underground production outfit pre-89, but not really sure. I think they formed after we flew the "warm embrace"...
I found a German re-edition too, but not sure it was DDR or BRD. Timeline is hard to guess indeed 😄
You did a good job !! 👍
Fab result Lukasz 👍
Your photography is superb mate 👍
Thank you gents. Glad you like my pics, though I have to fix the white balance being too blueish.

Would be nice to get a aiming set for Mi-24D version to convert the Zvezda kit too.
Are you reading this Dear Res/kit Team? 😉

Some say "Vox populi, vox dei", so enjoy the new pic 🙂
Thank you all, you made my morning today, before I had to start my łurk 😄
@Juergen: I certainly hope so, looking forward to seeing more interpretations of this 'camo'
Really great looking jet, Łukasz! Pure eye candy. 👍
Seems like we've been too inpatient w/Juergen:
Messerschmitt Me262 & North .. P-51D (Airfix A50183, 1:72)
LOL - so we did trailblazing for Airfix... 🙂

Hey mate, another one of the good old matchbox ones. A lot of work to do or making big compromises. That's the deal with them but it looks very promising so far. I'm curious! 👍
So true 👍 Welcome 🙂
A model really not easy to assemble there are a lot of things to correct normal it's Matchbox,
However, so far you have corrected a lot of things it's great good work 😄 👍
Good continuation 🙂
Tanks a lot. Matchbox is Matchbox, no doubt about it. Hopefully not so much will be visible in white 😉

Lovely! Count me in👍
Requesting permission to land
Welcome everyone, you're gonna have to depart for the second approach as it's not the top prio project😉
I'm tempted to just spray the road and stumps with matt varnish and leave it as it is.
Doesn't the grass look too uniform?
Maybe you should add a tree like on Daniels Schwalbe Dio ?
I have to reconsider that, but it would complicate the storage 😉
Was I missing this?
Looks like 😄
Thinking of acquiring it, but wondering - am I expected to spray it and wait or wipe it afterwards?
Anybody using it actually?
You spray it and wait or apply it with a cloth or paper towel- when you get a milky color sort of matt surface then it's ok but you need to watch out not to apply too much - you can consider also the modellers word degreaser as it is also a very good product - did use it on my last two models. Hope this helps you a bit.
Thanks Patryk, much appreciated 👍
