Palo M
How can a model of an agricultural plane with a movie reference to an old Czechoslovak movie make it to the most popular list? Well done marketing, Eduard!

Revell sometimes goes into the fight with really incredible detail in 48-scale... ;)
11. July, 17:57
Palo M
Indeed. The detail was incredible enough to make me take out heavy machinery (thank you Proxxon micromot, for making quick work of it).

Need to be careful with this kit, was a gift from my wife many years ago. As it's the only model I got from her, she will watch my effort carefully.

Strictly speaking it is an Italeri kit in a Revell box. Their later Typhoon in 1:48 is miles ahead of this thing!
12. September, 16:36
Palo M
@Jasper good to know the newer is so much better. Can't choose, as it was a gift, but if I ever build another one, I know what to choose.

That's a beautiful 4th gen fighter...I am!
12. September, 18:19
Palo M
Jos, the fighter might be beautiful, but the model is definitely not!
Thanks for joining, also Roland, hope it will go well and be worth it in the end :)

I know Palo....it's definitely a great jet plane but the Revell kit has its shortcomings. You'll occur lots of fitting problems with the intakes, but beyond this fact if you have overcome these problems then you'll have a great model. Watching closely...!!
12. September, 20:32
Palo M
Ha, thanks Jos! Already spent a few days on the intakes. The hole just above them took some research to figure out it's not a mistake, just a badly fitting part and a hole should indeed stay there. Lots of putty and sanding to fix sinks and rescribing lines and rivets. The inner "tubes" also give me doubts, as there are big open gaps on the side. Still not sure if I leave them, or try fix them. It's a difficult place to do much.

Looks great. If you are in mood for an easier A-7 in the future, I can recommend the Hobby Boss Kit.
27. August, 20:37
Palo M
Thanks, Stephan. I actually do have one more A-7 on the stash, the Trumper 1:32. I'm scared of that one!

@Lukasz, funny mention the accelerator: was in a store with @Slavo once and the shopkeeper tried to sell us one. We both thought it's pretty much a scam :) will look up how it helps.
28. August, 07:06
Gerald Willing
I like it
28. August, 07:37
Łukasz Gliński
Accelerator is handy thing, but you have to remember two things while using it:
- it's quick and I mean really quick!
- the glue itself becomes gooey for a second and sometimes milky or white, not transparent anymore
28. August, 08:04
Palo M
Thanks Lukas! Maybe I'll try wood glue first, sounds a bit safer :)

This is such an attractive little aircraft and you managed to do it justice. I feel your pain with the panel-liner, it is always my fear to trip and fall on the finishing line. But you managed to rescue it nicely!
28. August, 14:29
Palo M
Thank you, Thomas! I was despairing while rescribing-sanding-priming-rescribing many times over, I was afraid it all holds together on putty only. But I'm glad oils made it look good in the end. Of course a long way to go until I got something like your MiG-15Uti, but that's why I'm here, to learn!

Was following @treehugger's comment on that one! Might get one, but the price needs to get down to a more reasonable level.

Thank you, Bart and Roland! Was a fun build, if a bit colorless in the end. A nice distraction from airplanes or AFVs.

Anyone has experience with brass (like this one) vs resin (e.g. Eduard brassin)? How do they compare?
21. July, 08:12

Anyone has these aftermarket engines? How do they compare to the ones in the GWH kit?
20. July, 08:38

Check this thread. Seems Slavo had a small fit issue, but overcame it.

20. July, 13:27
Palo M
Thanks, Nathan, I think Slavo has an AMUR engine upgrade, not the Amigo one.
20. July, 14:03
Palo M
Vladimir - thank you, looks good! I think I'll order them. Do they need lots of adjustment to fit in properly in the GWH kit?
20. July, 14:05
Slavo Hazucha
Indeed, I had the AMUR´s. The diameter is about 1,5-2mm smaller than the GWH-kit tubes. AMURS are "for Kittyhawk kit"...

Donald had the AMIGOS, but he actually had the Kittyhawk kit:

Flunked Flanking... DONE! | Album by smokeriderdon (1:48)

They seem to have the right diameter for the Kittyhawk kit... so options are:

A: KH kit has smaller diameter tubes, AMURS & AMIGOS fit KH, but are both too small for GWH
B: AMUR has smaller diameter nozzles, too small for both GWH & KH kit hence AMIGOS would fit GWH too

place your bets... :D
20. July, 14:12
Nathan Dempsey
Ahh you're right Palo!
20. July, 14:13
Palo M
Reading the review from Vladimir, it seems Amigo makes a set for GWH with the correct diameter, so should work well!
20. July, 14:18
Slavo Hazucha
checked it now, indeed, AMIGOS seems tho have it covered... Let´s hope you get the right ones then :D
20. July, 14:42
Vladimir
Yes that's right. Since the diameters of the engine hoods are slightly different AMIGO releases two sets: one for KittyHawk (AMG48025) and one for GWH (AMG48025-1)

I guess the Soviets just put everything they could think of on the KV chassis... :D Is that basically an IS-2 turret there?

Great looking engine - you are not seriously keeping it under the cover? :o
1. June, 10:13
Palo M
The cover is there to prevent the engine from turning green :) I'm now experimenting with Vallejo chipping medium and MRPaint. Vallejo says to only combine with acrylics, we shall see. As MRP doesn't provide a good "booklet" of what their colors look like, I tried all shades of green I have to find on that works best. I think I'll go with MRP-102, SEA green.

I did find an online reference to their colors, however the shade they show for MRP-26, 4BO, is nothing like what it looks like on the tank. Thus, I'm spraying it on some spare parts to see what it actually looks like.
1. June, 13:49
Palo M
Turns out, MRP over Vallejo chipping medium is fine.
29. June, 20:46
Slavo Hazucha
Very nice vivid green!

brings back memories on exactly how my 30l Aquarium looked like a couple of years ago, shortly before some final decisions had to be made... ;)
30. June, 13:20

Did you put a glossy varnish on it and applied washes and oil paints? How did that turn out?
