Sebastian Meyner So far it's a very enjoyable kit! Details are more on the basic side but still good. The I-16 was not a highly complicated plane to begin with. So I only will replace/add the instrument panel, seat belts and some minor bit with Eduard photo etched parts.

Sebastian Meyner Thanks Hans, but don't hold your breath for this one ;) Life takes it's toll at the moment ...wife, 4month old daughter, 2 dogs plus a little bit of a full-time job. Currently I'm just going thru my stash and try to come up with ideas...

Good new for some of us: Pilot Replicas seems to be back in business, offering a thus far limited range of their kits again

They also said on their Facebook page that they restarted work on some other kits again, namely the Saab 105 :)
18. November 2019, 03:48 Share
Nathan Dempsey I could go for a SAAB 105 in 1:48.
18. November 2019, 05:39
Sebastian Meyner I'm with you on that one But check out the kits they have available right now. They're beautifully detailed and should go together nicely. I for one hope that Pilot Replicas originally plant Vampire/Venom series will be amongst the kits they're reviving :)
18. November 2019, 06:22
Soeren . Its really nice to see them back - but sadly ordering directly from them isnt that cheap.
The J-21 would be around 65 € inkl shipping
18. November 2019, 06:31
Sebastian Meyner True Soeren! You have a point there. ...I assume that the production is on rather small scale at present, which doesn't make the kits any cheaper! But on the other hand I have two of their kits in the stash (J-21 and J-29F) and still considering to get at least another J-21. They're beautifully detailed, the fit seems to be quick good too plus the come with PE parts and Cartograph decals. Really tempting...
18. November 2019, 06:41
Soeren . The kits are indeed really nice, but the price makes me hesitate....
18. November 2019, 06:42
Nathan Dempsey I dont think I've ever seen their Vampire or Venom.

13. November 2019, 12:20
Nathan Dempsey I'm following this one just because I'm still trying to talk myself into buying this kit.
13. November 2019, 13:14
Sebastian Meyner Well...keep on talking than ;) The moulding might not be up there with Eduard, Tamiya & Co (by no stretch of the imagination)but for example the panel lines are actually quiet nicely done! And hey show me a better kit of the Jet Provost/Strikemaster in 1:48 and I#d got for it in a heart beat ;)
13. November 2019, 13:23
Nathan Dempsey Yes, I believe Augie built one and said it was a decent (and the only) kit for 1:48.

Sebastian Meyner Thanks Hans! I'm living in Botswana for a while now and there is a more or less public discussion going on if and how to replace the well aged CF-5A/Bs the local Defence Forces still uses...sometimes very entertaining ;) This eventually gave birth to the idea what could be (or better: have been) the replacement.
13. November 2019, 12:17
Sebastian Meyner That's actually a brilliant idea...Done :)

25. July 2019, 05:11
Chaz Gordon But you'd have to build it yourself, they'd only run for 15 minutes before needing to refuel, you'd have to buy the steering wheel and fuel tank separately, and you'd have to drive it while stood on the side of the road.

13. August 2019, 14:05
Daniel I have high hopes they do, for the Kfir they redesigned the whole fuselage after criticism on their first release. Even if not, I have a really hard time spotting any gamebreaking mistakes there and I will definitely get one and build "Bullet 106"

gorbygould Very nice job!
8. August 2019, 14:59
Sebastian Meyner Thanks guys! I overdid the weathering a bit, but hey - it was a quick build of two days ;)

@Holger: Die EML Ketten sind der Hammer! Kein Aufbohren, kein Rumgefummel mit Draht, keine Stichverletzungen an den Fingern, kein Sekundenkleber. Einfach Laschen einführen, umbiegen und fertig! Die Detailierung ist mindestens so gut wie die der Konkurenz aus Ungarn. Am Ende steht eine wirklich gut detailierte und recht stabile Kette
Momentan nur leider schwer zu bekommen...

@Spanjaard: I know. I tried out a photo booth (soft box) on that one. But since I have some troubles with my DSLR had to use my phone...not the best option though. I'll try to take some better pictures later.

Tanze schon länger drumherum, aber kA ob der neben Eduard lohnt !?
27. July 2019, 18:18
Sebastian Meyner Ich würde sagen: JA! Der Preis ist zwar...naja 'Tamiya', aber die Qualität ist es auch! Den Vergleich zu Eduard's 109 kann ich (noch) nicht ziehen, aber für ein vergleichsweise schnelles Erfolgserlebnis ohne Sorge um Passgenauigkeit oder Vorbildtreue, absolut zu empfehlen!!
Die auswechselbaren Motorhauben funktionieren soweit recht gut, ich pers. halte es aber irgendwie für Spielerei ;)

Sebastian Meyner Thanks guys! If it appears 'clean' I reached my goal It's supposed to be a newish vehicle - the crew was only able to scrub of the rather poor paint job wherever they stepped or dragged stuff across.
25. July 2019, 05:34
Lee Fogel It's a marvelous build, Sebastian!
25. July 2019, 05:49
Sebastian Meyner Thanks Lee, much appreciated!
25. July 2019, 06:16
Patrick Hagelstein Good point Sebastian, World War II only lasted 6 years in total and a lot of stuff was rushed in factory fresh and hadn't had the time to rust to a junkyard scrapheap before being knocked out, abandoned or simply superseded by better equipment. In my opinion a lot of WWII models look way too overweathered. I like yours very much though!
25. July 2019, 13:41
Sebastian Meyner You've got a good/valid point there Patrick Exactly right...even though I might have been guilty of over doing the weathering occasionally as well ;)
25. July 2019, 14:17

CharlesBronson of course the tool is based in a old kit. Italeri never made kit on new tool , just have some kits with "upgrade molds", in other word old kit + some pieces not so old.

15. April 2019, 18:08
Sebastian Meyner Thanks guys! Really appreciated

@Erik: The recce version was used for sure by Czechoslovakia from the '60s to the '80s. I red somewhere that they were also used by Egypt and Vietnam (for Vietnam it's the RS version - without the tip tanks). However I couldn't find any photographic proof of this. A 1:72 or 1:144 kit (...I believe) RS-Models(?!) offers those two paint schemes... Egypt in 4 colour "Nil-camo" and Vietnam in NMF.
