Here's a link to pics on my web site:
And it's not a 'Rick-roll'... Check out all of the
extra work that I had to do to make it presentable,
and then check out photos of the real McCoy
and see it sitting on the Revell M-19 Diamond T
tank transporter that I built.
Positive criticism and constructive criticism are
more than welcome. Flames to \dev\nul
Annnnnnnnnnnd, just finished another model.
Built the Kopro Il-10 kit. It's a REALLY old kit,
maybe produced back in the 60's or 70's, I can't
read Czech, so i don't know. The production is
almost toylike, and the fit is horrible. There's a
tone of flash that needs taken off. Detail is lacking
to an incredible extent, and what detail there is
is in raised panel lines that end up being sanded
I finished mine in an overall Testors' FS 35079 for
the top and Dark gunship grey for the the under-
surfaces. The interior was supposed to be a light
grey, so I went with a light ghost grey for that.
The bombs got painted Army Helo Dark Green and
I was eventually able to get the prop to spin and
paint the canopy nicely.
The decals were sparse, but that's normal on a
Warsaw Pact aircraft. Not many stencils to them
at any time. I added the N. Korean (DPRK) decals
and they slid on beautifully! They are quite thin and
responded to Micro-Sol well. One or two of the nat-
ional insignia cracked a bit, but they slid together
after a time of drying.
It looks pretty sweet, and though I gave it a good
shot, I was not able to turn this sow's ear into a silk
purse like I did with the Hasegawa F-102 back home.
One more for my collection in the class room!
