Made in Ukraine

OK, thanks for the forewarning, Jesper. I have this kit in my stash, too. Yet I’m still working on the last bits of an SU-24 Fencer with digital camo for the Ukraine.

Thanks, I had seen that video but as it concentrates on the slogan being written on, I hadn’t noticed the redesigned pylon the LAU-118 had been hung under. I would assume the 29 has something very similar. Should be easy to make from plasticard.

Peter, it is a nasty seam. And really unnecessary if the kit had been engineered a bit better. Lots of sanding coming up….

Really bad indeed. I will check it with my kit later. Ok, at least we supported the Ukrainian forces… :v:
Probably the IBG kit would have been the better choice.

There older boxing is a little better, wonder if molds/that boxing did fair well.

With some glue the seam will mostly be gone.

Thanks Jesper.
Forewarned is forearmed. Good luck with it.


I think I got lucky, too. This is just the usual kind of seam one has to deal with now and then, not too big a problem :sweat_smile: :raising_hand_man:

Nice work Peter. On the toppics of seams, I have finally finished the raw build of the C119. NOT a huge fan of putty and sandind three separate fuselages at once…

Thanks for sharing, guys. Maybe I got unlucky or I warped the fuselage a bit when installing the cockpit. In any case I will fix it. :raised_hands:t2:
I have more boxes in my stash, so I will try again on the next one :slightly_smiling_face:

It was only dry fitting, Jacob. I haven’t decided yet to start building it, but maybe…it hasn’t so many parts, has it?

BTW, really nice progress on your C-119! :+1:

Basic camouflage painting, washing, and drybrushing completed.

I still need to detail paint, ink, and shade and highlight some areas in addition to completing some groundwork.

This is Masterbox’s 1/24 “Strange Company’s Tiberious “Ty” Constellation Hackington III.”
