Yakovlev UT-1b (Mikro-Mir 1/48) - finished




Calling it done !
This was my longest build so far, not that the kit is intrinsically bad, it just lacks so many details and every single part needs to be taken care of or rebuilt from scratch. Overall, I had a lot of fun building this kit and learnt a lot of new modelling techniques.

Yakovlev UT-1b (Mikro-Mir 1/48) - Part 6

After the Fieseler, I chose to come back to the build of the UT-1b and honestly I am feeling quite motivated.
I procrastinated the build of the undercarriage since I didn't know how to tackle the alignment of the different parts and was concerned about not having a pegged leg aircraft. I thought of different complicated solutions or creating a jig but never managed to convince myself. Anyway, I finally solved the issue by using my sole Mk1-eyeball and it worked !

Fieseler 103 (Re-IV) Bronco Model 1/35

Finally ! My last model: The Reichenber IV (Fieseler 103) from Bronco Model, 1/35. A nice model to build with a bit of scratch-building and some fun painting. The only annoying part was to remove the locating pins and make a new circular access panel on the left side of the fuselage.

Kawasaki ki-100 walkaround - Historical pictures


I plan to build the Hasegawa kit of the Ki-100 and I found pretty good (and rare !) historical pictures of the picture in the walkaround style. Enjoy !
