I'd love someone to take on all the Soviet jets with all new moulds - really only the MiG 15 and 21 ,Yak-23 and Su-27 are well served.

I managed to hack together a reasonable MiG-23 a while ago but don't want to have to do that again!

This is the Dragon kit with some surgery, particularly around the nose. Will be interesting to see the Ozmods Mig-27 nose, never saw that one built!

Thank you for the pictures! Well, it looks like the Dragon kit ain't so bad. As usual, one of its advantages is the rather comprehensive decal sheet. I really appreciate how they added at least some stencils for pretty much all their kits way before this became more common.

"Some" - didn't I write elsewhere that everyone seems to be converting to batch processing these days? Now you join the bandwagon as well... :D

I just had the pleasure of working with yet another dried-up decal sheet... the missile stripes ended up being impossible to work with, so it's more masking and painting ahead... :roll: Luckily everything else went on just fine, albeit barely.

Doing some "Sweet" Westland SeaKings... I have a HAS.6 and a HC.4 going right now. Just a few more details and the off to paint. (Which I won't do until spring...) Let me know what you think about the progress so far!

Looking really good. I'm guessing that radar dome is scratchbuilt, have you added any other extra details?

this weekend, i bought 3 small wooden cuttingboards (16 x 25 centimeters) to turn into display bases for ww2 aircraft.
i have been thinking of scratchbuilding some oil/fuel barrels out of pieces of sprue and rods to add to my sceneries, i have been measuring a fullscale barrel at work last week and wrote down the dimensions.

to make these in quantative numbers, im gonna make a cutting rigg to cut them all the same size, so i dont have to measure each barrel individually. i measured each barrel at roughly 6mm long and 4mm in diameter in 1/144 scale, so im gonna make a rig for them out of spare pieces of plasticard.

Oil/fuel barrels - inspired by Tim’s vignettes I recently shopped for Preiser N Scale figures but also stumbled across their N Scale Cargo set that includes a useful number of these classic drums.

Tim, the radar dome came with the kit. It's Sweet's 1/144 Westland Sea Kings Pt. 3 "Belgian Air Force 'Black Beauty', Royal Navy". As for other modifications: All the ECM Antennae/sensors, Re-did the rescue hoists, the correct landing gear for the HC.4, All of the 'belly' blade antennae, plus the dust filters for both A/C (coming soon), ETC...

I have four going on my table, and I think I'm actually, truly, really, for sure going to work on them. I was at the point of putting decals on a pair of Hornets, and then working to get to decals on a Sea Harrier and a Hind.

Mind you, I also have various armor pieces to paint, and some 1/700 aircraft to finish, and... and... it goes on forever.... :lol:
