More Modern Aircraft Finished


In case you thought I've forgotten about my dogfighting project, here's proof it's still in motion (yes, KG Klink has once again taken center stage though).  I recently received an order from Picoarmor and have been steadfastly working on them, though there is still work to do.

Here's the whole mess.  I've gotten 32 finished, while 32 more have been primed and had magnets affixed, and six more have only been primed (I need to buy more magnets).  In the waiting line above are four Israeli Mirage IIIs, four USMC AV-8 Harriers, four F-4 Phantoms (not sure what to do with them; looking at a Cold War gray, maybe USN gray, not sure), six more F-15s, four more MiG-29s, four MiG-23s, and four Su-27s.

On a side note, upstairs I have a boatload of USAF (F-4s, F-105s, A-1 Skyraiders), USN (F-4s, F-8s, A-4s, A-6s, A-7s, RA-5s, E-1Bs, SH-3s), and PAVN (MiG-17s, MiG-19s, MiG-21s) aircraft for Vietnam in various states of undress, F-86s and MiG-15s for MiG Alley primed, a bunch of USN and IJA/IJN for Pacific WWII, some Flying Tigers and early war bombers for China WWII, and some more Battle of Britain that need to be finished.

On to what I just finished.

Four USAF (maybe Saudi as well?) F-15s.

 Four Euro Fighter Typhoons, to be used for some hypothetical modern stuff by anyone that flies Typhoons (UK and Germans in particular, I'd imagine).

Four British Harriers for the Falklands.

Four Argentinian Mirages (or Daggers) for the Falklands.

Four Russian/USSR SU-27 Flankers, for hypotheticals.  I've got more I'm going to paint up for China.

Four Russia/USSR MiG-29 Fulcrums for hypothetical.

Four USAF (or maybe Danish, Norwegian, etc...) F-16s.

Four Argentinian A-4 Skyhawks for the Falklands.

My Falklands contingent: four A-4s, four Mirages/Daggers, and four Harriers.

My 'Free-World' contingent: four F-16s, four Typhoons, and four F-15s.  I also have four Israeli F-16s and four USN/USMC F-18s.

My Cold War/modern hypothetical bad guys: Russian MiG-29s and four Russian Su-27s.  I also have four Syrian MiG-23s and four Iraqi MiG-29s.

Well, I've got a bunch more stuff to get written up, stay tuned.



  1. The 1/600's look good. Are they variable height stands they are sitting on?

    1. Are they variable? Sort of, they're clear Legos, which you can swap in and out to vary the altitude. I tried it once and found I'm too lazy to keep doing it, so technically yes, they are, but functionally, no they're not (for me, at least) ;)

      Thanks man.
