Suh-weeeeeet!

tha-hank you! :)
Warning to all: The stencil data decals in this kit are about the thickest I have ever seen in my life. They really suck.
each one of them should have a seperate "watch your step" decal come with it...also the carrier "film" is often placed really off, so a part of the print isnt covered and you lose it.
but the main decals are top notch and in contrast maybe the thinnest I ever worked with
26. November, 20:56
Spanjaard
very nice idea!
27. November, 00:41
Spanjaard
strange to have such a difference in the quality of the decals of the same model
27. November, 00:41
Spanjaard
what did you use for the base?
27. November, 00:42
Daniel
Thank you very much spanjaard!
The base is from the revell 1:32 FW 190 and the models are stuck on 3 mm brass tubes.
Soldered the tubes together and then used hot glue to fix them to the stand

I have to agree with Playtime 222.

Oh man, I can almost hear it crack... went through the experience myself on my late Super-Flanker, gladly Mr. Michael Phillips pulled me out of my mysery then with a spare piece from a limited edition one which came with 2-sets of clear parts... I would have 2 MiG-31 spare sets of canopies to share, but I´m affraid that the fit would be miserable here... Good luck on getting a spare!!!

And I´m really sorry for Fat Amy Gaga... Did not think my end-of-the-year run-up will be spent in home-office/quarantine watching 109´s buzzing all around the web... ;)
29. October, 19:13
Daniel
:D exactly playtime + nathan

I could do a diorama where I pick up the topic of "how not to refuel your f-35" (which is not far fetched...) but I contacted the meng guys and hope they have some solution lying around...

Slavo, theres a lot of them! And all the guys who used to deliver cool jet pics are now building these tiny crates with 25 parts^^- only way to cope with that situation is building your own :)
I expect a quick build&return to the real deal, either with the fat gaga or the su-27

Patrick, I actually plan to inflict some battle damage on one of them, this time in a more controlled way. Throw it against the wall or something ;)

Oh, this tragedy passed me by.
I'm sure it doesn't matter what you make of it: It'll be great. But sleeping over it for a few days is definitely a good idea.

23. November, 10:18

Thx Adam!

The update is that the customer service at meng is quite uncomplicated, shipping is much more expensive than the whole replacement sprue though - but I hope that it arrives here in the near future and hopefully intact as well.

As rumour has it theres a 5th gen group build next year, so this will be continued in january if things work out
Cheers!
23. November, 20:12

Nice to hear a canopy is on its way.

Should a 5th gen group build start, I might dig in my closet for that old Zvezda PAK-FA (as the Su-57 was previously called).

cool, nice to have you all on board gentlemen! I just realised ... winter is coming ... pretty fast :) I'll try to acquire some more goodies for her and will assign the next slot after the 190 and fat amy - really looking forward to this one as well!

@Clifford: teamwork is always good :) inspired by your great looking hornet aggressor I bought the vallejo flanker set and they seem to have researched their stuff really well. One thing that made me hesitate with this project is the kind of hard to get look of the bleached classic flankers with all the colors blending. have a good feeling this will work out with these colors
13. October, 22:03

Yes, I want to see this one too ;)

I will try and be a good teammate. The vallejo colors work very nice. I thinned them in the bottle. I took the top off and added thinner untill it came to the top of the rim on the bottle, added a couple of Mission Models metal balls, that I bought a bottle of, they are for putting in those type bottles of paint. They can then be dispensed right into your airbrush, ready to paint. I have the Dream Models detail set for mine. It is very compelete. I think all I need is a set of wheels.
14. October, 01:08
Daniel
Welcome aboard Augie!
@clifford: Sounds good! I also bought a bag of mixing balls for my remaining vallejos, just always forget to put them in...
14. October, 13:53

I forgot quite a few also, went to shake up a bottle today and found I had left them out of it.

Zhou, no problemo, since I am not active on the insta i am more than happy+honoured if you'd like to show some stuff over there for me :) If you need an original pic send a pm :)

A beautiful job. I have the kit but not sure that I will ever be able to dedicate the level of effort it demands.
Any in progress reports? I too like to put my aircraft on popsicle sticks and would like to know how you were able to secure a relatively heavy build so far off it's (presumed) center of gravity.
27. August, 16:55
Daniel
Andrew, thank you very much! For me this was a subject that really kept me going, the kit does not put too many obstacles in your way as well. But see for yourself:

Bullet 106 - WIP | Album by halohead (1:48)

On the CG part it helped that I put a lot of lead in the rear quarter as I wanted a wheels on deck tail sitter first. other than that it is really just a thin tube with a canted tip put through the sparrow fin opening as the idea to keep it flying came pretty last minute. But - works :)
27. August, 17:04

And for a more professional way to put things on spikes I recommend a look at Zhou's work, eg pic 13 here

More progress - and looking all good and shiny (actually messy & dirty, but in an entirely good sense :) )

Do you find just one rod sufficient to hold the full opulence of a 48-scale Tomcat safely in the air? I used two on the F-111, which works perfectly, my Hornet got one and is pretty wobbly on it, but then that´s a longer rod and a more "pro-motion" angle...

Also, are you doing a landing-approach with unspent ordnance or a post-take-off scene?
20. July, 09:54
Daniel
Thanks mates!
Yep, this cat is returning to the boat after dropping one of two bombs on the sortie, quite common during the last wars where fighters were often just waiting on station for targets to appear. Often in vain.

@ Treehugger: yes, I tried it on my big hornet where I had a truckload of cool ordnance and just couldnt choose which was the coolest :)
You can see pics of different loadouts here: Blacklions in OIR - Completed | Album by halohead (1:32)
To be honest I didnt change the load out that often since then...but i could anytime! :D

@slavo: Since we have few earthquakes over here I trust the small rod^^ Its pretty stiff as is is quite short (twss) having a tailsitter also helps the balance here ;)
And since my F-16 still sits gracefully on her super wobbly arched bicycle spoke, I dont worry about this construction.

You don't have to do a piece of ordnance for every one of the (104 if I counted right) bomb symbols on the nose... :D

The crew looks cool on the deck I can almost hear them murmuring "Get it done & grab the camera..."...? ;)

haha, yeah, they look a bit grumpy, the dude on the right is like: "stop wasting time and get back to the bench man!"
Now I felt obliged to count them myself and can confirm 104 boombooms dropped so far (and Im preparing merely 36 ;) )

My new 1:32 Delta-Hornet arrived today and guess what - next to some deck crew, bazillions of ordnance in there …and I still have magnets left... Though part of me hates me for it, I decided that I could need some more loadout options :S

Fought my way through the last weaponry - phew, that took longer than expected and was getting more tedious than fun. But I will save the time during the next 32 build :)

Now, having the bug armed up and on the deck, I could finally take some photos and call it done. Thanks everyone here for tuning in, please take a look:
