I wonder, how wide and long is this model in 1:144?
W48cm x L38cm
Great clean build 🙂
I agree with Nathan.
Beautiful work, Maxim! Ireally like your multi-shade natural metal finish! It looks wonderful!
Nice paint job
Really cool - "Aluminum overcast" in her glory (I wonder how the announced Roden offering would be like...)
Beautiful monster kit!
This is gorgeous, maxim.

I would be interested in hearing a few secrets about how you got the exhaust cotton so perfectly "clumpy" for just the right balance of light and dark areas.
Wonderful.... but I'd be interested in who won the 'I ain't dusting that!' argument in your household? 😄
Cool idea and well done 👍

Great build and unique livery 👍
I like it because I am nearing completing my own Revell kit but a stock version and now know how tricky this little kit is to look good.
It Looks great!
I have done 2 of the same kit. One is sitting in water too.
Excellent - congrats! 👍 👍
Nice and clean ,,,,, good work !

Beautiful job, original livery - as it seems to be often the case with many of your models of off-the-beaten-track subjects! 👍 👍
Thanks! Yes, I like unusual livery or options
simply beautiful. very nice livery.
Awesome, Caravalle is such a beauty 🙂
What a nice model! Should do one myself... my dad piloted the Caravelle before switching to DC-9
@Sergej: so he was lucky to fly two most beautiful airliners of the era and you have a reason to build them😉
Created the project... now to find ancient stuff...

Another gem from your collection 👍 Looks bit Jetstreamish to me😉
If you are up for it (for other projects ofc), it might be easier to scribe new panel lines into the layer of primer paint, as opposed to scribing into plastic, which is probably more tricky. I have yet to try that out myself.
Btw, I like scraping the plane prop blades on kits and on boat/sub propellers, to make them look sharper/thinner. Usually fairly trivial work as long as one doesn't do something whacky wrong. I also like scraping/filing the fine rear edge of wings, as kit makers tend to end up with a near 1mm thick edge, perhaps because it is easier to make such molds with thicker parts of plastic all over.
I like this a lot!

Nice helicopter, where do you have the decals from? Printed by yourself?
You made a mistake with the landing gear, you used the high skid version from the ec 135, which is also in that kit, maybe you can correct it 🙂
Yeah, I draw and print the decal on a color laser printer.
Unfortunately, I can't fix it anymore.
Nice, and rare livery too! 👍
Ah ok nice, I also want to build this EC145 in that paint scheme, that is why i asked 🙂
That is sad, that you can't fix the mistake 🙁
Very Good !
That's awesome! 👍
Beautiful Russian Concord!
That's some nice work Maxim.
Looks great, realy nice work on the details.
What a cool Concordski😉

Love it! My fav airliner (I think) 🙂 👍 👍 👍
Beautiful and clean build!
Another nice one Maxim! How did you like the Fly kit?
I built this kit about 6 years ago and don't remember how good it is . It seemed to me that it is slightly better than the minicraft

Lovely. Special props for the Bulli 👍
very nice made! well done.
Good work! This web is crowded with F104s!!!
Very nice Starfighter, the Italeri-Kit turns out very well.👍
Beautiful work! And cool lighting of the runway!
Most interesting paint finish on the white color. What kind of gloss coat or varnish was used if I may ask?
Usually I use Tamiya TS-79 Semi Gloss clear
Lovely and unique 👍
Must you use the tiny Tamiya jars for the TS-79, or do they sell larger containers with the stuff? I think I've only ever seen the tiny round jars.
Only 100 ml spray can, but I gently drain it into the airbrush every time I paint
Are you just gently spraying the can into the open airbrush cup, or is there some trick to decanting this directly into the airbrush cup?
I have so far relied on Humbrol Clear as gloss coat, but I might consider other options to just try them out.

Very impressive Unterseeboot! I like the moderate rust effects.
Is that a photo etch deck?
Partially. I used photo-etched parts from the D-version to fit the C-version.
Very well done. The more subtle weathering and rust really looks good in this scale.
very nice 👍
Phantastic work mate! Lovely weathering 👍

Looks good on the runway ....
Oh man, huge respect for turning these few pieces of soap into a model! 👍 👍 👍
super nice plane 👍
Congratulations, this one is a definite winner.
Great, and rare, subject- beautifully rendered in 72nd
Well done 👍
Great subject and build of a kit that was no doubt a challenge
Very nicely done. 👍
