    I am also using a photoetched detail set from eduard.

    Here are some photos of the work in progress. Very Happy

    Nice choice Cyril! Is it going to be finished in Aluminium or Camo?

    Hello Cyril,

    Prosit man, good choice. I have the 1:32nd scale and half way through. My set is Eduard as well and full of details. In all, I have four sets, cockpit details, interior details and two sets of exterior details. Once I started off with s project of building all the types of aircraft involved in the 1973 Israeli/Arab Yom Kippur War. Eventually I have all the aircraft required - some 56 types in all including helicopters; but all the modelling is at halt, until the Scharnhorst is ready for sailing.

    Nice built Cyril but are you going for an aluminium aircraft there asre so many beautiful schemes ... but if you opt for an aluminium bird why not a Korean War ace?

    I don't think so ..whilst arrived in China and Korea they changed markings ..but of course .. some Russian pilots stayed ..fighting....... Exclamation





    Two 196th IAP tragic aces. Above: Kapetan Boris Abakumov, which claimed six victories in Korea, but was shot down and injured. Abakumov had written one of the first books about the Soviet units in the Korean skies, titled "The Unknown War".Bellow Starshij Lejtenant Fiodor Shebanov was credited with five Sabres and one B-29, but was in turn shot down and killed probably by Claude Mitson on 26th October 1951.

    Marco Very Happy

    What I had in mind is the Chinese Peoples' Volunteer Air Force, exactly the same one you sent on one of the sites.



    But the antenna is shown in the wrong position, it should be as in the photo below. Evil or Very Mad
    It should end on the side below the canopy. Cool

    Here are some photos of the ejector seat,

    Most of it is photo etch.











    I have just finished giving the model a coat of gloss black paint, as a base coat for the alclad.

    Fingers crossed for the next step. Shocked
