Michael Phillips Man, this is an awesome update! The camo is really fantastic, and your details are stunning as usual. Really looking forward to seeing this one approach the finish line.
3. April, 00:18
Clifford Keesler Agree with Michael, just awesome.
3. April, 00:51
Slavo Hazucha Thanks Lode, Jos, Daniel, Michael & Clifford - your most kind comments are really appreciated & the best motivation to try stuff :)

I´m curious how far I will be able to take this one without any pre-shading at all - did some tests yesterday and I think I´ll go for 3 separate layers of Oil-paint techniques, so it will take some time.

Originally, I intended to proceed +/- evenly between the Bug & the Super-Flanker, but with Covid-times setting the pace & my main supply of MRP´s cut off, I need to ration and some Flanker colors will be mixed from the base tones needed for the Hornet, so I need to finish this before going there...

Take care & stay healthy!
3. April, 07:33
Daniel Absolutely flawless, color match with decals looks perfect as well, nice! I am always silvering-worried without gloss coat, but it seems to work out obviously - do you polish before or just spray, dry&apply? Very interesting color change in the last two pics, something I noticed in my china flanker as well. Seems to be pretty much the same color… FS36076 ? Looking forward to learn something in your 3 layered oil treatment technique!
3. April, 12:59
bughunter Wow - the master is teaching (from home office) !
3. April, 19:18
Slavo Hazucha Thanks Daniel & bughunter!

@Daniel - I will always see the flaws, once you know where to look, they are eye-magnets... - even after glitch 3 repair-sessions :D - the color is actually a base of Dark Gunship Grey FS 36081 (leftover from Vark) with some black added - the Furball paint scheme sheet suggested plain FS 36081, but that looked wrong vs. pictures & my "feeling"...

@bughunter - where? - I could take a lesson too! ;)

Progress-report on an attempt to make non-pre-shaded/marbled surface look acceptable - I am going through the 2nd layer of oil treatment - the 1st was with shades of the 3 camo-colors, the 2nd is black - save your judgement for Nr.3, since it´s all too generic now & lacks "esprit" in the form of small games with color, streaks and the little odd irregularity here & there... :)
4. April, 14:12
Clifford Keesler Sure is looking great.
5. April, 00:42
Tim Heimer I agree!

Lode Schildermans Now this is a bird I'd like to build by you. I liked the Aardvark a lot, and even saw it from very close 30 years ago, but it doesn't match the Blackbird (from a shape point of view, not what you'll make of it. Your talent makes even an ugly duck a swan)
16. March, 22:58
Greg Solomon And I just bought two 1/48 kits at an estate auction too...
20. March, 23:46
Slavo Hazucha Would have done the same given the chance... What were the odds for a 48-scale Blackbird coming...

Lode thanks mate, I am already imagining some new techniques & experiments to try out on this, heat-matted black color, fuel streaks... ;)

Scott Dutton Apologies, to used to using TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms, yes I know ITAR is four). Its the agreement countries sign when buying military equipment agreeing not to onsell etc without approval of original manufacturer (USA in this case). Its so we don't get parts or complete systems ending up where they are not wanted.
19. March, 01:47
Maciej Bellos Thanks Scott!
19. March, 15:00
Slavo Hazucha Thanks Maciej, Bughunter, Elco, Scott, Bryn, Zsolt & Nathan! - for all the nice comments & praise - most appreciated, I am really happy you find that the build captured some of the "feel" of the Aussie Pig as it approached the end...

& thanks for the intel as well - I thought the radical treatment was necessary because the G-version is basically the FB-111A, which was AFAIK not a FB/Strike aircraft, but a SAC strategic nuclear bomber, hence special requirements for irreversible de-militarization... Something like the dismembering of the Tu-160´s in the Ukraine in the early 2000´s:

Always happy to learn stuff!

Erik Leijdens Amazing work...!
13. December 2019, 22:27
Igor Lyash OK, Slavo. I understood you. I also want to make this model. Some small model companies is makes different aftermarket for this HB model - correct nose, outboard weapons, nozzles, seats, wheels, resin cockpit and other. Using all of this, can make a gorgeous model of this frontline bomber.))
16. December 2019, 19:09
Slavo Hazucha Igor, I'm very much looking forward to see another Fullback in big scale! I think the HB kit is the right choice over the Kitty Hawk, although that one is supposedly OK too...

The Big ED PE really provides meaningful and visible extensions, except the cockpit curtains, that part I found unusable/unrealistic...

I used OOB Nozzles, which are OK, but Amurs would be better for sure - got those for an Su-35 and they are very nice.

Su-27/30/33/34 Engine nozzles (A.M.U.R. Reaver RC4817, 1:48)

Don't know about Reskits... maybe better, maybe not...

Sukhoi Su-34 exhaust nozzles..s) (Reskit RSU48-0014, 1:48)

If you want to do a series model with the APU cooling, consider this set:

SUKHOI SU-34 APU SET (Cold War Studio CWS48012, 1:48)

The kits sting has no APU grid, nothing, even the panel lines on the sting are not 100% correct. I did some scratch reshapes, but the set surely does better...

Finally, for the nose, there are several aftermarket options, but I've seen articles showing that the connection to the sawed off kit parts is not great and you end up filling & losing more detail on the kit than with my method - there is enough plastic on the kit nose to re-sand it to correct shape...

In any case, enjoy the kit and the beautiful plane, I surely did!

17. December 2019, 09:45
Igor Lyash RES KIT very good set. There is still a good company AMIGO MODELS from Chelyabinsk (South Ural) which also makes excellent epoxy nozzles.

Francky @ Slavo: I am buildign up to a monster diorama (will only take me another 10 years or so). I use standard size "ground plates" that can be used seperately, or as is the final intention, can be combined to form a part of an airfield. Intention is to have the soviet corner, the NATO corner, the 50's corner etc ...

13. December 2019, 22:23
Greg Baker Y'know... seeing something like this almost makes me want to tackle a 1/48 scale build... so much detail... so beautiful.

14. December 2019, 01:23
Slavo Hazucha Thanks a lot mates for all your kind words!

@Francky - I really don't wanto to miss that mega dio & the pieces on the airstrip!

@Erik - the whole HB kit was exceptionally good, nice details & great fit except maybe the tail sting. Not cheap & 50% of the box are weapons, not plane, but it is one really good kit.

@Greg - I recommend the Revell B-1 for 48-scale starters! Seriously - would be great to see your take on something big a but above all, stay/go where the fun is!

Slavo Hazucha So... October approaching at supercruise speed... I ordered my Aggressor model & decals at least a month ago via a physical store (a reasonably good one...), because I think physical stores deserve support these days... Suspicous since I got no notification, today I dropped by like "Greetings sir, where´s my model?"

Turns out they had some software issues & the order is only just about to go out! :o

I was hamstering RedBull cans for some epic night shifts on my Vark to be ready for the GB +/- on time, yet now this happens...

Anyway, I´ll think about something, not giving up! Not at all in fact... ;)
26. September 2019, 11:58
Maciej Bellos Tough luck Slavo... Hope for the best. Also I agree about the physical stores, problem is I don't have one in the city I live...
26. September 2019, 13:17
Holger Kranich I am addicted to online stores. I live on a phucking island. It is always the joy to walk into a Hobby Shop and just go around. :D

26. September 2019, 17:56
Patrick Hagelstein I totally agree to help the struggling physical shops a helping hand as much as possible but yeah, sometimes the online stores are just that tad efficiently. Hope it all turns out well and hopefully you can be off to a good start together with the rest.

Slavo Hazucha I want to start an Australian F-111 in the next months and for the sake of contribution to good Austrian-Australian relationships, I do not want to mess-up anything important too badly :)

Hence the first round of questions:

1; I really like the clean swept-wing silhouette, but would prefer to do a normal gear-down/on the ground version, not in-flight. I saw some pics showing this setup, but is it a reasonable service-life situation config?

2; F-111C vs F-111G - I want a grey, late service one, is it OK to go for a normal C or were these the upgraded G versions?

3; I want to do a properly weathered (not Russian-neglect level, but as much as real life has dealt) specimen - any tips on a good plane/squadron that delivers in this field + can it be a C or is G needed?

Any further general tips/references - web, books, etc... warmly welcome, thanks in advance!

Slavo Hazucha Thanks Nathan and Kerry, Mathieu welcome aboard!

Nathan, all nations are welcome to contribute ;) - the source page is great indeed, already verified the "Boneyard Wrangler" there.

Kerry your photo session is a great help indeed - lots of details & I already look forward to new weathering techniques to achieve the slightly irregular fading of the grey!

So if I get this correctly I need an FB-111A model to start with - I want to use the Hobby Boss. Now I need to work out the differences to make it a "G"
1. July 2019, 05:32
Kerry COX The Hobby Boss is the 'G', as it has the longer wings than the 'Ardvark' which had the wings 12" shorter.

Stephan H. Looks great. I think the mild weathering improves the Kit alot

Slavo Hazucha Thanks mates! Actually this thing was build around 10 years ago, as something to look at on my office table... It still stands there, so I took a few pics :) Most things came pre-painted, i remember it as a nice & really easy-going build...

Munkyslut Grime on the block around the back of the deck is spot on! Shame the air cleaner is in place hiding those Holleys, detail is perfect
28. June 2019, 10:05
Slavo Hazucha Thanks :) the kit was really not built to leave anything open, details only where they can be seen once everything is actually in place...

Slavo Hazucha I saw a nice build of the Revell P-51 here recently, now I´ve got to do a testimonial to one of the key milestones that got me into planes & this hobby :)

Should be in-flight with gear up & on a stick, probably will only add the new (cheaters!) dashboard from eduard:

North American P-51D-5 Löök (Eduard 634001, 1:32)

I could use some help on how/where to get a decent looking 1:32 US-dude for the cockpit... The hand will have to be scratch/mod, but at least a good sitting one with goggles up would be a great start - hints/tips/words of wisdom welcome! Thanks in advance!!

Nigel Hi Slavo. I was considering this one for my build. I have the ZM P-51 anyway, but it should work with any kit:
P-51D Mustang Pilot Figure (Zoukei-Mura SWS04-F08, 1:32)

Note: I haven't used it, it's only at the vague idea stage.

Slavo Hazucha Thanks a lot Nigel, you have found exactly the man I need! Must have been using wrong keywords in searches, I only found some standing/posing crews but no "pilot at work" pose...

Mathieu Duvivier Following ... with great interest mate !
Btw after the Tony, this is a second p-51 on the bench !
PS: If you want to model a late P-51. have a look at aerocraft models tail and elevators. they are a drop fit for the Revell Model.
You can also take the Eduard look late dashboard for the Tamiya, it will fit with minimum cutting.

Slavo Hazucha Great to have you on board Mathieau & thanks for all the advice in things P-51 here and before! You saved me some cash by leading me on the Revell kit trail vs the Tamiya Stang, which I can now spend on some aftermarket jewelry... The kit is due to arrive this week, I'll take a look, then decide on what exactly to order next. The build won't start for a couple of weeks, hope you'll still be around ;)

Stuart Perry Hi Salvo, no secret. Black gloss base, then alclad 2 polished aluminium, then heavy layers of mig worn effects, then all over mig old rust. Let it dry and then lots of water and brush most of it off. Then a quick dirty oil wash ( flicked on ) and finally a rub over here and there with a touch of true metal ( steel). Hope that helps!!! I'm making a sidecar so might film a few bits to share if it helps?

Palo M Well done!

Slavo Hazucha The question what I will do when baby-Scharnhorst & Fullback are done was just too real... This will be a heavy weathering project... :) For a time I played with the idea to do somethingl like this: - but after due evaluation of the kit and my scratchbuilding abilities, I should settle with something like this: ... ;)
