  1. Mark - can you please scan and email the "ONE photo in TANK BATTLES OF THE MIDDLE EAST WARS"? I've not seen it before.. Thanks AC
  2. Thank you. It was fun build of something a little off the mainstream, and now I am done with Su-22s for a while! To answer your questions: Its all airbrushed using liquid Maskol to create most of the pattern. Dry brushing for weathering and scratches, and the whole machine sanded with 3800 to scuff the paint and hard edges. I noticed last night that one Atoll is a little off direction... will fix. Anyway, the canopy was very badly marked on one panel when OOB. The photo somewhat does not do the canpy justice (camera focus), but I actually don't use Future, I apply WD-40 with a Q-tip. A WD-40 shine on the "glass" really looks great!
  3. Finished my Su-22M4 "Fitter K" tonight. It's the Pantera 1/72 kit, build OOB with some minor additions. Overall, the kit is OK, and needs some work, but it builds up as a fairly accurate representation of the "K". Depicted is a Fitter K of the East German AF ca. 1987. From a learning standpoint, I enjoyed it, but I'm glad its completed. Various pictures below; Cheers!

  5. Oh well,....... no Migs or Sukhois in the Boneyard. Thanks. AC
  6. Mark - just wondering if you had any luck with the "odd rods"? AC
  7. Hi all. I have a request;.... if anyone has a couple of spare 1/72 scale "Odd Rods" laying around, I'd like to take them. (These are the IFF antennae used on most Soviet produced jets produced after about 1960.) The parts are so tiny, they probably have no real value, but you would have my eternal gratitude, and one owed favor! even if they have been painted or have been stripped off an old model, that would work too. I will need two of them. Thanks in advance; AC
  8. Beautiful build Ralph. Impressive jet. Thanks for sharing. Adam
  9. I am sure that many people will be interested to know that the National Geographic Channel will be showing a new documentary on the Horton 229 tomorrow evening at 8pm Central 6/28/09. Cheers AC
  10. Wow! Congratulations on a great build. AC
  11. Mark - Another useful link for you. This one, a Syrian StuG. http://www.dishmodels.ru/wshow.htm?p=1053&lng=E Adam
  12. Thank You. It was a fun build. Peru is quite capable actually. Check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peruvian_Air_Force and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cenepa_War Most recent air combat for the Su-22: "February 10 1995: Heavy air activity continues over the battlezone. During the morning, the FAP sends in A-37Bs and Su-22Ms to strike Ecuadorian positions. The FAE steps in. At 12:42, the Ecuadorian radars pick up five enemy targets approaching for another round of attacks. Two FAE Mirage F.1JAs and two IAI Kfir C.2s are sent to intercept the incoming aircraft. In the ensuing action an A-37B subsonic aircraft is shot down by a Kfir and two Peruvian Su-22 were shot down by 2 Ecuadorian Mirage F1 respectively." Good modelling pictures are hard to find for late C20 jets though. AC
  13. Just completed today was my 1/72 scale Sukhoi Su-22 " Fitter E" of the Peruvian Air Force (Fuerza Aérea Del Peru) of Grupo Aéreo 11 "Los Tigres" (the Tigers) ca. 1988. The aircraft is the trainer version of the Su-22, and was fitted with only one cannon – an NR-30 on the starboard wing root. "211" is painted in her desert paint scheme, and is carrying two S-24 240mm Rockets on the outer pylons and twin fuel tanks on the centerline pylons. The kit is a Hobbycraft, with all decals coming from the spares box, and the nose intake warning triangles are home made. The kit is inaccurate in several key areas, but with some modifications, including the creation of the tail bulge synonymous with the Tumansky R-29B engine, I was able to adapt within reason! It's my first Soviet made jet fighter build, and as I knew nothing about Su-22s before it, I was able to learn a lot about this unique swing-wing fighter for future builds. As you can imagine, getting accurate information on the Peruvian Air Force is pretty difficult, so I took some liberty on a few things. Anyway, I think she closely depicts a "Peruvian Tiger". Cheers all - Adam
  14. Thanks so much. PM sent with my email address. I have already printed the 5 pages you posted - no problem. The article is just as great as I thought it would be! AC
  15. Hi - does anyone have a copy of "International Air Power Review #18" published a couple of years back. Its the one with the Su-22 in it. I would like to get a copy of the Su-22 article if possible - if anyone would be so kind. I can give you my email if you want to scan and email it (although I don't know how many pages it was) or I can email you my address for a color copy. Many thanks in return. - AC
  16. Congratulations! She looks great. AC
  17. Info has been sent. Sent me the stuff for the SIG too when you have a moment. thanks. AC
  18. I now have a picture of a Panzer IV L/70 ex Syrian Army on the Golan Heights in the 1980s.. Email me at ca920@sbcglobal.net for the image. AC
  19. Outstanding. Nicest build I have seen anywhere (in person, books, on-line) all year. Congratulations on a wonderful effort! AC
  20. Well done Mark. I wish I had some time to do work like yours. Keep 'em coming! AC
  21. Thanks. I'll put it down for next time. AC
  22. Hi all. Off to LA for the weekend. Any suggestions on hobby shops in the LA County/Hollywood/Santa Monica/PCH/405 area? I like old kits - in the old hobby shop style many of us remember... Thanks in advance. AC
  23. Thanks. I have also heard of some Panzer III/IV's and I (think) some Panthers. I'll share what I find too..
  24. From: http://www.achtungpanzer.com/hummel.htm It is unconfirmed but probably few Hummels found their way to Syria after the war." Its start. But if you have a picture then thats even better... can you scan and post it to this thread? AC
