Francisco Maldonado Simões Lovely work! This is a masterpiece! Do you have any contact with Marabu?
11. April 2016, 22:06
Vladimir Kafka Francisco, I already replied to your question elsewhere - you can contact him on, nick MARABU. He is active there almost daily, as far as I can tell.
11. April 2016, 22:15
Francisco Maldonado Simões Oh yes! It was you! Thanks!I have already registered there, i have sent him a message, got no reply! :( Maybe they are out of business. It's a shame, they had good products!
Great work on the Swordfish!
11. April 2016, 22:32
Vladimir Kafka Francisco, they are (or rather he is, as this is a one man show AFAIK) most definitely not out of business. What is that thing you need to know btw?
11. April 2016, 22:35
Vladimir Kafka Oh and thanks everyone for all that praise.
11. April 2016, 22:36

Christian Meyerhoff Can anybody translate this please ?
12. April 2016, 18:25
David Thor That doesn´t look like a 1:72 at all. Rather like a 1:48! Great work! :D
12. April 2016, 18:28
Vladimir Kafka Christian, curiosity killed the cat. In fact I was writing my friend about my current stomach flu ;)
12. April 2016, 18:50
Christian Bruer ah now we know - good and speedy recovery Vladimir! Ah and by the way - excellent, clean and sharp work on your Stringbag. Looks very life like! What do you use for rigging?

Cheers, Christian
12. April 2016, 19:13
Christian Meyerhoff Thank`s a lot! Hope you are feeling better now! :)
12. April 2016, 19:16
Vladimir Kafka thanks all!
Christian, thanks. 0,12 fishing line, painted with Agama alcohol gunmetal. Strings are threaded though holes in the top wing. Same method on all my biplanes except the Gladiator.
12. April 2016, 19:16
Christian Bruer Thx Vladimir, I use it too on my ship models. Have you ever heard of Rigg that Thing? A monofilament in different sizes made by Uschi.
12. April 2016, 19:25
Christian Ristits Just wow, what a piece of Art!
12. April 2016, 19:47
Guido Haesevoets This is darn good! I was convinced it was 1/48 until I looked at the project spec. Look at my avatar for the sign! :)
12. April 2016, 21:24
Ulf Petersen This Swordfish is really superb, Vladimir! Great respect.
13. April 2016, 05:35
Urban Gardini What a fantastic Stringbag. Well done mate, it's a masterpiece!
13. April 2016, 10:04
Alistair Graham beautifully modelled
13. April 2016, 10:22

13. April 2016, 10:47

13. April 2016, 17:18

13. April 2016, 17:52
ForestFan Superb
15. April 2016, 19:36
Kerry COX Masterfully done Vlad. Salute. ;)
15. April 2016, 20:09
Alistair Graham I have had the Tamiya 1:48 floatplane in my loft since the time it was launched and never built it, i did not think my modelling skills were ready to tackle it (why did i buy it?) this is inspiring me to get a ladder out and find it
15. April 2016, 21:39
MICHAEL WOODHOUSE Brill and what you hope the end game is!
15. April 2016, 21:52
Kerry COX Alistair, Have you got the PE "brace wires" for the 1/48 kit, ?, and I believe they are bought separately, made by Tamiya
15. April 2016, 21:58
Alistair Graham Yes i have them also, but because they are PE they are 'flat'!
15. April 2016, 21:59
Alistair Graham I must have had it somce my boys were about 13/15, so about 12/14 years old model
15. April 2016, 22:01
Kerry COX The Rigging 'wires' from Uschi are the thing to use for the ultimate result for sure. :)
15. April 2016, 22:01
Alistair Graham I recently bought the eduard Fokker Eindeker to ease me into rigging.
15. April 2016, 22:02
Kerry COX Good choice.
15. April 2016, 22:02
Alistair Graham I was inspired by a recent magazine article of the 1/72 Airfix eindekker but my eyes suit the larger scale, lol
15. April 2016, 22:15
Kerry COX You and me alike mate, but some 1/32 stuff is just too big. :S
15. April 2016, 22:43
Urban Gardini Alistair, the PE brace wires from Tammy is indeed correct as they should be flat on the stringbag so you should use those instead of any other round thread/wire.
15. April 2016, 22:47
Kerry COX They were "aerodynamically" engineered steel strips, as seen on all "Tiger Moths" :)
15. April 2016, 23:02
Burkhard D Wonderful. Doesn't look like 1/72 at all. Superbly clean build and intricately detailed.
16. April 2016, 08:05
