Anyone has experience with brass (like this one) vs resin (e.g. Eduard brassin)? How do they compare?

Anyone has these aftermarket engines? How do they compare to the ones in the GWH kit?

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

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

Plastic straw! Didn't think of that.
25. March, 15:49
Łukasz Gliński
I use it sometimes for the exhausts, when the diameter is similar, e.g. in my SR-53
25. March, 18:41
Slavo Hazucha
Quickly secure your supplies, the plastic straw is an item bound to leave our world soon..! :)

I know and I'm ready - having a full box stocked, it should cover few meters in overall length :D

Hello Palo M. I had the same problem with broken pipe without chance of repair. So I used a wire plug as

Chose only the diameter
26. March, 12:42

oooh, nice. So many good ideas; also from Marek Swiderski outside of this thread. Should have asked before putting epoxy there :) . Lots of inspiration I'll look at after the engine is complete - thanks everyone!

Revell sometimes goes into the fight with really incredible detail in 48-scale... ;)
11. July, 17:57

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.

Beautiful work. I was hoping to see this kit built up here.
28. June, 22:16
Palo M
Thanks Nathan! It went together well. The only issue was that I sometimes couldn't tell when flash is part of the real thing and when it should be removed :) I'm sure I removed some that should have stayed and left other that shouldn't be there.

The dots of paint seen in image 5, is that a special product, or could it possibly be just oil paint?
29. June, 08:41
Neuling
Interesting subject!
29. June, 09:09
Palo M
Treehugger: just oils paint (from a Abt 502 set). After applying the dots, I use a dry paintbrush to create streaks( or "maps" on horizontal surfaces). If it's too messy, I add a bit of thinner.
It tends to reduce contrast, like on the base here; and when using multiple shades, creates some texture on otherwise uniform surfaces.
29. June, 09:31
Palo M
Thanks @Neuling! AA is my favorite subject, especially with more recent Russian/Soviet designs combining missiles with guns, adding nice detail.
29. June, 09:34
Slavo Hazucha
Looking very cool indeed - basking in the sunlight (unless it´s one of northern fleets pieces... :D) All the weathering really makes a nice combo, details coming out while it´s not too much anywhere A bit of a pity that the guns are just there in closed tubes. On the other hand, thrilled to see the little handles on the spent cartridge boxes survived the whole process! ;)

Also agree Soviet Air Defense is a cool topic - maybe have a shot at this:

Russian 5V28 of 5P72 Launche..mon" (Trumpeter 09550, 1:35)

- with 10m length, should be about as long as a KingTiger incl. gun :D

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

A simple weekend build. The kit fits together very well, is a joy to build. Would recommend trying to paint the guns separately from the rest.
7. June, 13:10
Slavo Hazucha
Cool stuff - I never even held a "Das Werk" model, but words have been good...

Nice topic as well - they really went creative on those muzzle-brakes... Happy times drilling them all out :D I only saw something mildly similar on the Flakpanzer Gepard - was this supposed to be recoilless or did they just really needed to teach troops not to block the gunners view by standing anywhere near this contraption..?

Nice results too with the chipping & scratching bits, soon going to be Night-shift time at your desk! ;)
8. June, 11:13

I have no idea what the engineers had in mind for this Vierling, probably only 2-3 were ever built. It was the appeal of a nice weekend build and this kit did deliver. I'm now doing a Takom kit and can only appreciate the effort that went into the Vierling - so much nicer!

You don´t really need J´s sticky papers for the F-22 - you can freehand those shades at midnight with lights off & the pattern will likely be more accurate ;)
