Nice shiny red finish! 👍
Thank you for your praise! This is an older model from my collection. I built it seven years ago. There are a few bugs on the model, but it looks pretty nice in the showcase 🙂
Krásnej červenej MiG, a ty detaily jsou také moc dobře provedené 👍
Nice paintjob 👍

Great paintjob! 👍
Thanks to WhiteGlint,I am glad you like it.
Again a little closer to the goal. I finished work on the suspension armament and started working on the chassis.

Thank you White Glind! 🙂 I have another scratchbuilding ready for long winter evenings. I just don't know yet whether I will opt for the Savoia Marcheti SM 73 or for the plane of the Czech aviator Jan Kašpar.
Admirable work! Hats off to your modelling skills!
Thank you very much! 🙂 🙂 🙂 I really enjoy extensive modifications of kits and scratchbuilding.
... your collection of airliners looks great too 👍
An unusual airplane. Both thumbs up to your effort.
Thank you for the words of praise Villiers de Vos 🙂
The Avia BH-3 is a truly exceptional machine that is significantly ahead of its time. He was born at a time when biplanes ruled the sky. Although it failed at the time of its inception, time has shown that this idea was correct.
Thanks Rewop, I'm glad you like it. 🙂
Looks great. And not a tail sitter 👍 😄
Thanks for the compliment! 🙂
Yes, there were not many planes with a bow landing gear at that time.
Looks very nice Ludvik 👍
Thanks Neil 🙂
Very Well done 👍
Thanks for the praise Rui S. It's nice of you. 🙂

Exemplary work. Congratulations. That subtle work on the elevators.. perfect.
Thank you, Major Flaner. I'm glad you like my job. I am planning another scratchbuilding - the aircraft of the Czech pilot Jan Kašpar and the three-engine Savoia Marcheti SM.73 transport aircraft. I will launch one of them in the near future. But I don't know yet which will be the first 🙂
Yea, love it. My BH3 vac is waiting in the queue. Once again, congratulations on capturing her 'look'.
Yeah, the vac model will be almost as demanding to build as my scratch 🙂
Fantastic scratch built effort 👍
Highly impressed 👍
Thanks Neil. I am planning another scratchbuilding - a three-engine Savoia Marcheti SM 73 and an aircraft of the Czech pilot Jan Kašpar. But I don't know yet which one I will build first 🙂

The construction of the model continues. When I glued the decals, I found that the insignia on the top of the wings have a thin white border in about one third of the circumference.The white border was not visible before the decals were applied.
Very nicely done! That weight for the nose is a great idea. Regarding decals: I started to cut off the clear around them before application. Besides looking better on the finished model, it also generally reveals any registration problems.
I know about trimming decals before applying them. It just didn't occur to me that decals from the Eduard kit would have this problem. Became. At least next time I will know what to watch out for 🙂
I have already fixed the error of decals on the upper surfaces of the wings. Using a cutting compasses, I made a mask and repaired the white parts of the decal by spraying blue paint.
Airacobra is already finished 🙂. As soon as I have time, I'll take photos and put them in the album.
Very nice looking work.
Uříznout ty obtisky kružítkem, moc dobrý nápad 👍. Tento problém bych od Edyho taky asi neočekával.
Thank you Tas! 🙂
It's an older kit. I have not encountered this problem with newer models from Eduard.

The construction of the model continues slowly. After the unification of the fuselage surface, it will start to look like a MiG fuselage. 🙂
Missed this one. Quite a lot of work done! Amazing!
Nice progress, everything turned out really nice & natural under the primer 👍
You're right, Slavo. I was pleasantly surprised by the appearance of the fuselage after spraying the primer. Of course, the primer revealed a few places that still need to be repaired. But there are not many of them and they are just small depressions and grooves.
Thank you Maciej 🙂

... and some terrific job done in this "big scale" SG-38 (well, I've built it in 1/87, so...) - thumbs up! 👍 👍
The level of detail is amazing. I would loose my patience working on something so delicate and fiddly.
It's not that complicated ... just a fishing line, plastic tubes ... and most importantly a lot of patience 🙂
It was very fun for me to build this model. The parts are precisely cast and fit well together. For small parts, I used an additional set of photo-etchings from Brengun. Because the fuselage of the model is subtle, it was necessary to tension the reinforcing ropes symmetrically and be careful not to twist the fuselage. With a little caution, there is no problem. The reward for this work is an attractive model of an interesting flying machine, which was used for basic pilot training in many countries.
Very nice model, indeed. Congrats!
Thank you Robert! I really appreciate every award for my work.
Thank you Neuling! I'm glad you like the model!
Great Job! Perfect rigging guidline for my little project 🙂
(I build the 1/72 Huma kit - & I have no issues with the sprues but the describtion of the rigging was a miracle to me. I studied a lot of picture references and with your pic it makes sense now) 👍
Set 1:72 is too small for my eyes and hands. 🙂
It is quite a small model in 1:48 scale.
There are no problems with the Special Hobby set. The parts are very nicely and cleanly processed and fit together perfectly.

Still calling this a "Směr" model must be the overstatement of the year! 😄 👍 👍
At least the box and a few parts is Směr 🙂
You took it in a better Direction for sure ?
Thank you Bruce! The original set is really bad. A lot of adjustments were needed to get a nice model. I really enjoy this way of building models. It's relaxation for me. In addition, I get a model that (in some cases) no one makes.
Piper is ready, photos of the finished model are in a separate photo album here: Piper L-4H, SMĚR 1:50 - Czechoslovak Air Force - COMPLETED | Album by KluK (1:48)
BTW - this is also lovely...
I like biplanes. Despite their anachronism, they radiate a kind of dignity and nostalgia.
The kit of this aircraft was issued many years ago as a short run by the company MPM. Like most short runs, this kit requires more work in assembling and completing the details. The shape accuracy of the kit is good and small errors can be easily eliminated. Making strings requires a bit of skill and patience, but it's worth the effort. The strings give the model a mark of credibility.

Thank you Alex!
Superb level of detail.
John, thank you for the compliment, I really appreciate it. 🙂
Moc povedený model Ludvíku 👍
Absolutely stunning work! Detailing is perfect - even the earphones are on board...
I really enjoy scrath construction, I like to invent and implement various procedures on how to make new parts. I'm having a good time, although not everything works out the first time.

Výpadá hezké, Ludvík 🙂
Thank you Bruce 🙂
Tiger Meet is the 'hot rod show' for jets - very cool!
Thank you for the compliment.
Czech Gripens have new attractive color accessories for each year of Tigermeet. The color scheme of this machine (Tigermeet 2017) is also interesting in that the woman in the form of a tiger is the Czech top model Simona Krainová
