Been a while on this one, might even be THREE HQ campaigns old..
RoG/Italeri Su-34 warts and all. There is a thread over on ARC where this kit is superior to the Trumpy $$$ one in several regards, but this one has been a wip (loosely) since before that kit was even a dream in Trumpeter's land.


Begemot Su-27 family stencil decals, not for the faint of heart..

I put the Yak-7V back on the shelf and pulled this F6F to finish. It has waited long enough. Eduard shipped the missing ailerons, so I will finish this in FAA color scheme.

Don, welcome to our madness.. it's been a little slow around here lately, but with the start of summer we should have a little more time to knock off a few more of these ancient stalled builds.

I had to apologize to the crew over in Unfinished Business, I *shudder* started and nearly finished a new kit.. *hangs head in shame* and it's a tank..

Keep pluggingr away.

Howdy Y'all
@Sal-Congratulations on finishing your hangar queen.
@Mark-Nice progress, I need to go back and look at the work you've been doing and the kit you're using.
This will be my entry into the campaign:
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Hello, Jesper and Mark. I need to join HQ7 for this Soviet Phoenix build that just was left behind for many reasons.

Well, back to where I was before I started:

Got the invasion stripes on the bottom of the fuselage, now I've got to re-glue the canopy in place and then back to the decals..

I have this unfinished build from last year. I am going to experiment with jet engines and the wings and fuselage.
Very what if



More to follow later

Finally pulled the P-51 back out after it being on hold for a month and a half while I traveled and got everything else out of the way. During the hiatus, I noticed that the instruction sheet calls out for 3-4 of the 5 invasion stripes under the fuselage... It's for sure White-Black-White and maybe another Black but it's just a tine bit fwd of the rear wheel well. SO my list grows once again, just as I was sure I was near the end......

Hi,

So I've come to the conclusion that this Hasegawa 109 K that's been linking in my shelf for years would be the best runner up for this campaign.

here goes 2 pics...


As it was till late last month, and the fact that I was unable to properly use the masks to get a perfect Blau 16 number got it on hold till now



Cleaned the fuselage sides and started repainting it

Cheers
Pedro

Is this too much complete to fit into the Hanger Queen topic

Started with decalling. There are quite a few. One side is almost done and gives a good impression how it will turn out in the end.

Decals set fine with a bit of set and sol, although there is quite a bit of unprinted decal film, which is better to remove first before applying decals.

That Henschel has a very nice camo pattern, Matthew, it looks very good, as does the many other projects that are being saved in this campaign.

I didn't sit still either. The MIG-21 is a nice distraction from my P-47D build.

The Mig-21 is now painted in its intended colors:


And an Alclad Aqua gloss coat was applied 3 times by brush for the decals.

In the box of the Mig i found also these Shelf Oddity R-60 AA missiles, which apparently were ordered by me to dress up the Mig. The stuff is pretty tiny, with the missile body ~ 2cm in length. Lucky enough all fins have very small pins that seem to fit in holes in the body, so according to instructions, building these missiles shouldn't be too difficult .

After languishing on the shelf for a couple of years, Ive attacked this Henschel HS123 with a hairy stick. It needs a touch up here and there. Just so long as I can maintain momentum and not get distracted with at least a dozen other ongoing projects, this baby might get finished sometime soon.

here are a few pics.









cheers

I've long wanted to open up panels on a kit and show the electronics bays, just never been brave enough to do it.

Yes 1/48, I started it in the 80's cut all sorts of panels out to add details I have since put them all back you can see in the last pic a bit.

Cheers Rob.

And now for something completely different:


But wait a minute Mark, aren't you working on a Mustang? Well yes, but this an Academy 1/72 P-51B that I 'finished' back in 2000. while it's been in storage a mouse ate the paint off of the spinner and the port side decal broke up. So while I was doing the spinner on my 1/48 P-51, I went ahead and repainted the spinner on this one too.

As to the Testors 1/48 P-51D, a made a little progress and even got a decal on it.


Now I have to pack them all away as I head to China for 3 weeks.
