Check decals below!

For over thirty years the An-12 was the USSR's main military transport type. Along with its exploitation by the Airforce (VVS), the An-12 was extensively used in civil aviation. Big capacity, a long range, and low running cost became the major reasons for this aircraft's commercial success.
From the very start of An-12 manufacture, its military service was considered to be a priority. However, intensive development of the USSR's national economy and the vast territory of this country determined inevitable exploitation of this aircraft in civil aviation.
Civil An-12 aircraft were closely similar to their military siblings. Naturally, first of all their landing gear was modified and their armament were dismantled (the tail gun position sometimes remained, but with a so-called 'end-cap' installed). The 3 radar was taken out as well, and PO3-1 radar was installed in its place for the purpose of earth surface observation. This radar equipment had somewhat smaller dimensions, which is why the radome on the civil An-12 had a different shape as well. The Soviet Ministry of Civil Aviation used the civil version of the An-12 for solving various problems - delivery of food supplies to remote and inaccessible regions of the country, container transportation, and delivering aid to countries with the 'socialist way of development' (mainly in Africa and Latin America).
In 1966 Aeroflot opened the first international cargo route between Moscow-Riga-Paris, and in 1969 another one between Vladivostok and Amsterdam. The An-12 was used on this route for a long time.
At the start of the 1990s most military An-12 aircraft were taken out of VVS service in the now-dissolved Soviet Union, and sold to numerous newly created transportation companies. A significant quantity of An-12 aircraft were exported (mostly to Africa) where they remain in service today. However, quite often these machines do not satisfy modern standards and even expose flight crew to certain risks.
The majority of An-12s were built in the 1960s and should now be out of service; however at the present moment the Experimental Construction Bureau named after Antonov is considering extending the flying service of these aeroplanes until 2010.

The An-12 (NATO code name "Cub") is one of the most famous Soviet types, developed by Oleg K. Antonov's design bureau in the late 1950s. Predecessor of the An-12, the twin-engined An-8 was the Soviet Union's first true cargo aircraft (it had a special ramp installation in the rear of the fuselage for easy freight loading), but at that time comparable foreign designs were equipped with four engines, for flight safety. At the end of 1955 the design bureau led by Oleg Antonov received orders for two new four-engined aircraft: the civilian An-10 and the military An-12.
Many successful features adopted on the An-8 were used during development of the A-10 and An-12 projects. Very soon, in March 1957, the first flight of the An-10 took place, and of the An-12 in December of the same year. After much intensive testing, series production began in the following year at the Irkutsk aircraft factory. In 1960 the Voronezh aircraft factory joined in production, and in 1962 Tashkent's factory. Production ceased in 1973 after 1,213 of this type had been produced. The An-12BK, equipped with more powerful AI-20M engines and some minor changes, was a widely used variant which began production in 1967. Other interesting modifications of the type are the polar An-12PL, the An-12BKL bomber which could carry up to 12 tons of bombs, the An-12BK-PPS with special radio equipment, the An-12BKT tanker, the naval rescue An-12PS and others.
Apart from the USSR, many countries have operated the An-12: Czechoslovakia, Poland, Yugoslavia, Cuba, Egypt, Iraq, Bulgaria, India, Algeria, Indonesia, Guinea, Ghana, Yemen, and China. China later built its own unlicensed copy of the An-12, designated the Y-8.
From the late 1950s onwards, the An-12 entered service in the Soviet national economy as well as with the arms of the military. The An-12 was the first Soviet military aircraft adopted by the Soviet Airmobile Paratroop forces; it was only plane which could carry AFV vehicles.
The An-12 had a long military service life: during the India-Chinese conflict in 1962, and in the 1965 India-Pakistan border conflicts, it was extensively used by the Indian Air Forces for transport and bombing. Egyptian An-12s delivered troops and UN peacemakers to the conflict zone during the Six Day War in 1967 and the Yom Kippur War in 1973. At the time of the Prague Spring in 1968 the An-12 very quickly delivered Soviet troops to the Czech capital. After the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in December 1979, many An-12s together with more modern IL-76s transported a huge quantity of Soviet troops and military freight to the country.
Even in the1990s "obsolete" An-12s still served in many countries. It took part in civil war in the former Yugoslavia and Angola; and Russia has used An-12s in anti-terror operations in Chechnya since this conflict began in 1994. In Afghanistan, An-12s belonging to the Taliban terrorist movement had been re-equipped for the bomber role, but were very quickly destroyed in late 2001, when operation Enduring Freedom began. At the end of 2000, about 167 of this type were still in service. Many An-12s are being used by air cargo companies, and Russia and Ukraine retain the type in their Air Forces at the present time.
I  found built this model! In scale 1/72 this Soviet aircraft is really huge! Check this out!

This is built Roden 042 Antonov An-12BK Soviet aircraft model kit!
Kit contain 246 parts.
Check this molds!!!
Two duplicate sprues are provided that include the 4 fuselage mounted ECM pods, cooling intakes, exhausts, and antenna. The other sprue contains the under fuselage bathtub housings and the enlarged tail cone housing in lieu of the B29 style rear gun turret. All of the parts to build the transport version are included but can be consigned to the spares box. The parts have very little flash and are crisply moulded.
Markings are supplied for 2 Soviet aircraft finished in overall compass grey. The 2 aircraft are red 14 of the Russian Air Force was stationed at Levashovo airfield in 2001, and red 90 of the Soviet Air Force based in the Baikal District in the late 1970s.
And check this decals!!!
The decals look thin and well printed. The sheet includes a nice rendition of the instrument panel and an anti glare panel. This kit should fill a gap in any modellers Soviet collection and will look good posed beside an EW fitted C130.

So I think this kit is really good!
Thank you for attention!

The T-28 Trojan 800HP Pussycat

Online Article: From the Magazine—
by Budd Davisson

It was in the cavernous back pit of a T-28A that I first came to know the meaning of the word "Humungous." Those first few hours were primarily hide and seek affairs with me doodling with my cameras and making believe I knew what I was doing. But, ever so often we'd hit some lousy photo weather and I'd revert to my basic role . . . frustrated fighter jockey. It was during those times, with my legs spread ridiculously wide to the galosh-sized rudder pedals and my hand sitting on top of a ball bat control column, that I first got to know the T-28A. Bear in mind that I looked like a lumpy Teddy Bear, trussed into a flight suit with lenses, cameras and film stuffed in every conceivable nook and cranny the suit had to offer.
You couldn't have stuffed me into a normal sized cockpit with a size-14 shoe horn. Still, as I sat there, jockeying the T-28A around, I was curiously aware of the fact that I was hardly occupying any space at all in the back pit. You could have gotten two more of me in there and still had room for a girl or two (well, it's never too tight). 

During that first introduction I was able to take over the controls and pull hard to begin a big barrel roll, to try and fall in behind Max Hoffman, who had been flying wing in his P-40E Warhawk. Max knew what I had in mind and rolled into me before I got into firing position. Then, he being a gentlemen and keeping his power down to 25 or 30 inches, the fight was on. I was loving it!
The first time I had ever laid my hand on the controls of a T-28 and I found myself upside down with a P-40 painted on the windscreen as we rolled in trail. The T-28 was the perfect airplane for this kind of skylarking. Its barn door snout keeps it from picking up speed like a crowbar going downhill and its big wing lets it turn inside a racing pigeon. So, whatever the P-40 did, I just hung on to his tail. I knew Max wasn't about to hit the ground so all I had to do was follow the hole he was punching through the air. However, as much fun as we were having, I really didn't learn anything about the T-28A that first trip, except how to make myself a little green around the gills.
Shortly there after, I got my chance to go at the T-28A in a more formal fashion, with a regular cockpit familiarization and full checkout. This T-28 wasn't your usual A-model . It's sort of a hybrid, or bastard, if you will. It still has the original R-1300 Wright engine (800 hp) but equipped with a 3-bladed prop to try and increase some of his performance numbers, some of which are supposedly pretty marginal on an A Model.
If you sit down and look at a T-28A closely it looks like they've reversed the old fighter design axiom of ". . . biggest motor with, littlest airframe . . ." Here it looks like they took the littlest current production motor they could find (R-1340s were out of production) and hung the biggest possible airframe they could design and still put two people in it without looking ridiculous. Some folks say it looks ridiculous anyway. God knows, it sounds ridiculous. Single row radials all have a less than ferocious sound, something like "Chickenpluckin, chickenpluckin, chickenpluckin." Say it fast and you sound like a T-28A going up hill. Anyway, with such a large aircraft, 800 horses have to puff awfully hard to take it anywhere in a hurry.
Of course, the Navy's Bravo and Charlie model T-28s solved all that by hanging an R-1820 upfront. With 1424 hp, the T-28 had no choice but to haul ass in just about every facet of flight. Then, to capitalize on this near-fighter performance, some older airframes were modified to "D" model specs, which included hardpoints for rockets and gun pods and bill of sales made out to countries with funny sounding names.
As I first walked up to Enhorning's A model, the first thought that went through my mind was "Jesus, I hope I don't slip off the wing. I'd bust my tusche into a dozen pieces," because the T-28A's wing is exactly head high to the average pilot. The cockpit rails are probably 15 feet off the ground and require a fairly healthy trek up the spring loaded steps in the flap and across the wing.
I had glanced through the handbook for the airplane earlier so, as I was screwing around with the parachute and seat belt straps, I glanced around to see that everything was where the book said it would be. It was. North American doesn't appear to have changed very much in any of their propeller driven airplanes since before World War Two. You can almost always count on the flap handle being on the rear of a console under your left arm. The rudder, aileron and elevator trip are located just in front of the flaps on the top of the console with the throttle, mixture and prop quadrant directly above them. The one break from T-6/Mustang tradition was putting the gear handle up on the left side of the panel instead of down near the floor by your left foot where it was a pain to reach.
Starting the 28 required a bit of orchestration with the fingers of my right hand to get everything going at once. Turning the fuel on automatically fires up the boost pump and feeds from all four tanks at once, there is no selector. Then, kicking on the battery starts things buzzing. The book says to prime the engine for ". . . 1/2 to one second ... !" but Enhorning let me go for nearly two seconds on the button actuated primer. Then I engaged the starter, counting the blades as they came by. When I had three blades, I reached up with a spare finger and threw both mags on, no small trick since the starter and mags are not conveniently located next to each other. A few more mini-shots of prime and I got that exciting hollow sounding cough that says the engine has just swallowed a little residual oil and is about to do its number. As the coughs got closer together, I reached up with my left hand and slammed the mixture into full rich and we had a purring 800-horse pussy cat on our hands.

Since it was cold as hell out so I pushed the canopy handle into the detent marked "closed." Once it was seated, I pushed the button on the top and a hydraulic cylinder squeezed the canopy closed as slick as glass. This was one of the last A models built and has the so-called low profile canopy so I ducked a little as the plexiglass began to envelope me. No need to duck, since the glass was at least eight inches over my head.
With everything strapped, buttoned, fastened and nailed down, I brought the power up and depressed the lever on the front of the stick with my little finger to engage the nosewheel steering. With the lever down the airplane steers with the rudders. Without it you have to use the brakes to keep from flattening Cessnas, fuel trucks and small hangars. Of course, there is no reason to ever hit anything because you have such a fantastic field of view. I felt like Jungle Boy on the neck of his favorite elephant looking around at the natives scurrying away from this snorting monster that threatened to scarf-up Cherokees without even belching.
The only thing of any great significance prior to the takeoff was the run up. You cycle the prop at 1700 rpm, but go for the mags at 2100 rpm, and, unless you've stood there with, your entire weight on the brakes as you crank 800 horses up to 2100 rpm, you can't appreciate what that means. That was when I came to full realization that this was no tinker toy I was about to launch in. Tinker toys don't ruin 2 acres of corn at the end of the runway with their prop blast during runup. T-28s do.
The wind was blowing like the hammers of hell directly across the runway, so I double checked the required 7 degrees of right rudder trim and made up my mind to leave the nose wheel down a little longer than usual to give a clean rotation. Okay kid, no way to back out now, and I riveted my attention on the centerline and gently began to feed the lion some meat. Funny, but when you bring the power up and are rocketing down the runway, it doesn't sound like it's going "chickenpluckin" at all. As a matter of fact, as I bounced around the cockpit, doing my best to monitor, manifold pressure (keeping it at 45 inches), airspeed (I wanted to rotate at 85-90 knots) and runway (I didn't want to go trolloping into the bushes), I felt like I was flying an honest-to-goodness fighter. Okay, so maybe I could see over the nose and the torque was almost unnoticeable but the feeling was there, even if the performance wasn't.
As the needle stabbed at 90 knots I tweaked back on the stick and the T-28A hopped off the ground and totally ignored the wind as it trucked straight ahead. I grabbed the giant gear handle and tried to pull it up and found I had to give it a couple healthy tugs to make the wheel symbols disappear in the little windows on the panel. Then I set up climb power of 34 inches and 2300 rpm, which gave about 1800 fpm on the VSI at about 110 knots. Not much compared to the 4,000 fpm a "C" model is capable of, but we were doing it at about half the fuel consumption.
As we climbed up to 7,000 feet to do some playing, I diddled with the trim and found you could almost dial the airplane in the direction you wanted to go. The machine is extremely stable on all axis, so you could trim it into a climb, bank or whatever and it would stay there as long as you wanted it too.
Once at altitude in our local practice area, I performed the ritualistic clearing-dance; a couple of very tight, high-G 90 degree turns, followed with a maneuver us Okies use to make New Jersey look good . . . we put it upside down and then twist it into brown and blue pretzels, wiping it around the top of the canopy as many times as our airspeed will let us. Other folks call them aileron rolls, we call them whatever comes to mind at the time.
In all aerobatics the T-28A is excellent, if maybe a little heavy handed in the aileron department. The roll rate is a little on the sedate side and for the first time that I can remember, I found an airplane with a decided amount of roll inertia. Once you get it going you have to lead your point of roll-out a little or you'll overshoot. Just releasing the ailerons won't stop it.
The ailerons aren't very well harmonized to the elevators, which are reasonably light, or the rudder, which is just about right. We did four and eight point rolls (which are real fun with the roll inertia), Cuban eights, and Immelmans and found it literally "grooved" through maneuvers . . . you just set it up and it would do the rest.
With it all cleaned up, the stalls are really surprising . . . there almost aren't any. It will wallow down to around 68 knots, buffet like a subway car, and then mush forward, straight forward, with the stick held all the way back. I was amazed! Even a T-6 bites much harder than that. With the gear and flaps out, it's a different story. The buffet is much, less pronounced and the stall breaks cleanly with a sharp roll to the left. It doesn't suddenly leap for the ground while rolling over on its back like a Mustang or Bearcat, but it's no Cherokee.
I tried to time some rates of descent power-off, but couldn't because with anything less than about 20 inches of manifold pressure, the cylinder head temps fall right out of sight. The best I could approximate was about 3,000 fpm down with 140 mph (gear speed) and 20 inches, which is hardly a good indication of anything.

In cruise we were showing a solid 180 knots at 6,000 which at our OAT was almost identical with the TAS. Enhorning says he flight plans 175 knots (201 mph) and is almost never very far off, which means a dent in his gas budget of about 43 gallons per hour, not exactly the kind of figures which make environmentalists happy.
Coming back into the pattern I elected to make a normal 180 degree rectangular pattern since a 200 knot, 360 overhead would throw the local faddy-daddy flight instructors into a tizzy. As I was on the 45-degree leg onto downwind I still had a solid 170 knots indicated and the bird showed no signs of slowing down. Since I didn't have the speed brakes of the B & C models, I delayed the turn onto downwind a bit and racked it into a relatively tight bank letting the G burn the speed down to the 140 knots I needed to throw the gear and half flaps out. Enhorning said he uses 90 knots over the fence, so I nailed the airspeed on 100 knots as I cleaned up the cockpit, returning mixture to full rich (we had been flying on auto-lean), prop up to 2400 rpm, double and triple checking the gear and saying four Hail Marys.
The wind had, as is usually the case on a first flight, gotten much worse and I expected to have my hands full on final. But, as I jockeyed the power a little to maintaining a good glide slope and pulled the nose around straight with rudder, leaning into the wind with the aileron, I could see it takes more than 20 to 30 knots to worry a hoss the size of a T-28A. I was almost hypnotized by the point I had picked to touchdown on and was playing with it in the windshield, keeping it totally stationary with power. Then, as my point was eaten by the nose, I bled the power off and gently flaired, feeling for the ground with these ridiculously long gear legs. A couple of "clanks" and one wiggle and that was it. I let the airplane roll the full length of Sussex's 3,500 foot runway, so as to not wear out the brakes.
Running the engine up to 1200 rpm for about a minute to scavenge oil out of the case, I brought the mixture into idle cutoff position and opened the magic canopy at the same time. As the cold air and the clanking sound of the big radial unwinding flowed in and settled around me, I felt like I had had a real experience. The emotion was little different than what I had felt when climbing out of a Mustang or a Bearcat for the first time. The smells, the feel, the hardware, everything about the T-28A is military and fun, and that is what makes the T-28A owners smile so much.
Back in the late ‘70s Bravo and Charlie models in civvies were rare and ran as high as $50,000 or more. (Editor’s Note: Ah, the good old days!) Today however, there’s no telling what prices you’ll find. Depending on the condition of the airframe and engine, you can expect to pay anywhere from $195,000 to close to 500K. With the price of gas being what it is, and will be, it's difficult to rationalize springing for a bird that slurps up fuel at around 60 gallons an hour. Also, almost all of the Navy birds are going to be very, very tired of flapping their wings and many are going to be way past due for retirement.
But, they won't retire. As long as there are old soldiers, old movies and old airplanes, there will be good old boys who want to play war. For those who have neither the talent nor the bucks to do it in a for-real fighter, the T-28A is the way to go. And it's a good way to go. If you don't believe that, ask the guy who parks his next to a Mustang. P-40 and Bearcat. Ask George and see what he says. All he'll do is smile and nod his head.

Gulfstream Aerospace unveils its new G650 cabin interior

Yesterday, October 18, Gulfstream Aerospace unveiled its high range, long-distance G650 Business Jet that will integrate several premieres, the use of Apple iPod Touch/iPhone/iPas capacity motorized seat cabin. Design for two years, inside was recently completed and will be a series of tests in the test flight program in the next six months.

Pres Henne, Senior Vice President, programs, techniques and test for Gulfstream, note in-depth tests scores another first for its interiors aircraft. ""We want to validate the design in a real environment before allowing the G650 clients", Henne said, adding that this includes the test while the aircraft is in flight.

Although designed in-house, Gulfstream employee concepts from cars and boats, with planes for G650, which should become the flagship of the range of products.

Advisory Council society advisory clients, volume 28 per cent more cabin and is making wider 14 inches.The cabin is 75 inches in height and 98 cm long.Gulfstream oval Windows signature in G650, but makes larger in proportion with the largest aircraft. The Windows are 28 inches across and raised 3.4 inches.A new element involving Windows, that Gulfstream executives concede took a bit of engineering work, was the placement of Windows by the kitchen.

In General, a first for Gulfstream and perhaps business jets is the inclusion of two motorized seats which were heated back and cushions, massage back cushion, unique position preset and positions of controls in the press-and-hold total memory-based upright and full of dishes.Controls are based in the outboard .the armrest to inside armrest can be used for storage or optional 12-inch, high-definition monitor.

Cabin systems have been designed with built-in redundancy which prevents their operation even when should a fault occur.Henne said "More than the equipment in the cabin was doubled."An error can occur and this fault message would be sent to the servicing personnel, but the passenger can never notice as redundant systems keep operating.

Gulfstream cabin management system includes the digital control via an Apple iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad.Gulfstream developed an application that allows passengers to control lighting, temperature, speakers, monitors, entertainment equipment, window shades, the system CabinView and appeal resulting.The Interior was also designed with details such as lighting in the drawer toilettes.La kitchen and kitchen includes a fridge freezer, sold with cutting boards surface countertops removable and a furnace convection.

Gulfstream is also improving altitude cabin to what they say is lowest in the industry - wide feet level flight of 51,000 feet, 2 800 feet and 41,000 feet.

Gulfstream President Joe Lombardo pointed out that the Interior was designed with standardized parts that will contribute to the ease of installation.The company employs lessons from its experience of the Gulfstream V .lorsque aircraft first put into service, design could go in many directions différentes.Lombardo said "It was not uncommon to have planes in the centres of completion for a year."

Launched in 2005 and publicly unveiled in 2008, Gulfstream G650 fly at speeds up to 0.925 Mach and have a range of up to 7,000 nm.Gulfstream arrested for 200 aircraft and backward extends 2017.Certification expects year next with customer deliveries in 2012.

Commitments to reach 200 MS - 21 Russian

MS-21, brand new A320 aircraft Russia, has accumulated nearly 200 commitments, including 50 reserved for Aeroflot, and Irkut said it's program leader spoke of Western Airlines orders.

150-210-Seat, three-model family is due to enter service in 2016 and recently obtained its commitment largest so far Russian State holding company Rostekhnologii, signed a letter of intent for 50 aircraft which are supposed to be operated by flag carrier Aeroflot.Les deliveries are planned for 2016-2020.

Kirill Budaev, who is Vice President Sales and marketing at Irkut, said "we are quite sure that these will go to Aeroflot".

Recently, the Russian Government partially finances the programme put public pressure on Aeroflot "buy Russian" because the airline has turned to Airbus and Boeing for the major part of its program of renewal of the fleet.

As well as the agreement of Rostekhnologii, another 150 MS-21 commitments are detained, including 50 Malaysia lessor Grecom and Russian Ilyushin Finance Company, 25 for like leasing and five airlines based at Moscow Nordwind.Aussi commitments are held by an undisclosed customer.

Irkut is under the auspices of that unifying Aircraft Corp. (UAC) is developing the MS-21.Development by 2016 is supposed to cost of 190 billion rubles ($6.3 billion), 40% is granted by the federal budget russe.Le rest comes loans and investment of the UAC.

MS-21 will be first aircraft design Russia incorporating extensive use of composites and will include a wing carbone.Budaev fiber says that the joint definition phase is underway with suppliers and design gel is expected in 2012 with the first flight in 2014.

Pratt & Whitney is the MS-21 Central lead provider with a version of its PW1000G adaptées.Ce turbo engine is likely to be similar to the version that would be developed for proposed A320s new engine option re-engining improvement Airbus, said Budaev.

PD - 14, an option for Russian engine is developed by perm Aviadvigatel (part of the United Motor Corp.), but Budaev Irkut efforts now are "more concentrated" version powered by Pratt.

The Russian twin shaft advanced dual stream will integrate technologies so that it can match or exceed the performance of the GTF Pratt while Budaev, said the engine manufacturer has not disclosed the technologies.Contrats with existing customers require that they have the possibility to switch to Russia engine when it becomes available, adds Budaev.

Irkut will perform final assembly of the MS-21 at its plant in Irkoutsk.Complétion client will be carried out in Ulyanovsk.

Bureau model aircraft

Aug 23rd, 2007 design aircraft

There is just the thing about aircraft were still intrigué. I can remember the first time I went to a demonstration in Keesler air force base Up in Southern Mississippi, United States. Will mean I had a blast and didn't even encouraged to pursue pilot license I mature age 11.

As a child I used to develop their own aircraft you use paper to create a model you draw plan in my head.Most people who are not futuriste and some the the likeness of something which should be used in a film James.

I really have come to appreciate the Bureau model aircraft as well so that your numbers in mind because we tend to think two planes isolated control whenever you Word the type of aircraft, last year there are many different aircraft designed, created, even fabriqués who have significance of Bureau model aircraft to exhibit du. and gives perfect and items according to set décoratifs on you would put it in.

We gathered a list on the store who brought a great selection of Bureau aircraft just left to page aircraft models, plastic.

What type of aircraft on your heart?

.How to Fill Seams and Sand Model Airplanes

Filling seams and sanding model airplanes is an important process when building a model aircraft. There are things to consider to ensure natural looking aircraft models.
When building model airplanes, it is important to remove the seams and the joint lines. For most assemblies, crack and gaps become common through fitting. The most common issues pertain to the mating lines and wing roots of both sides of the aircraft's fuselage.
Materials you'll need for this project include different grades of sandpaper, a paint brush, sharp hobby knife, a container with some water and a paintbrush. You can also add the Tenax-7R and model putty.
If you'll be utilizing hazardous materials as you build model airplanes, make sure there's plenty of ventilation throughout your working space. Check the labels and warnings on the containers of these chemicals.
The first step is to weld the right and left sides with the Tenax-7R. Using medium pressure, hold he two sides of the fuselage together. Then, touch the whole seam with the use of a paintbrush.
When you're done with the application, gradually add more pressure for the next ten seconds. Then, add another five minutes to let the weld dry up. Use the hobby knife to lightly scrape away excess chemicals.
If there are imperfections on your model airplane like pits, scratches or gaps, use a toothpick to apply some model putty. You can mask off openings or cracks with some tape. Afterwards, apply some putty and wait for 30 minutes until it dries. When the putty has completely dries, use a 600 ALO sanding paper to sand the area to the tape's level. You can re-apply more putty if the gap didn't get filled or if the putty didn't dry up or contract to a groove in-between the parts. Just repeat the sanding process.
As soon as there's a level surface, take off the tape and start to fine sand your work. This is the most important step in building model airplanes.
Use 600 ALO paper to sand the aircraft model over sections where the Tenax-7R and putty were used. Then, use a paintbrush dipped in water to moisten the whole sanded area. Repeat this moistening process until it turns smooth. Before moving on to the next step, fry your model airplane using a paper towel or rag.
When you scale mode completely dries up, check it thoroughly. Check for some rough patches. If you find any, use 320 SIL paper or 400 ALO paper again. To complete this sanding task, you can use fine 150 SIL sanding paper in repeating the process. This will ensure a smooth and natural looking model airplane. The last step is to paint your model aircraft.
If a model kit always fascinates you then you can start building your own model kits. Building models from plastic or other kits can be a rewarding, educational and restorative hobby and experience. When you start with the models, you will be amazed to find out that not only you can make your own models but you can also purchase from other enthusiasts. To start you're your modeling experience what you need to have first is a model kit.
While purchasing a model kit you will find out that there is a huge range of model kits in plastic and other materials that cover most subjects such as aviation, military vehicles of all kinds, ships, subs, space vehicles and sci-fi subjects and much more. The choice of a model kit can depend on your choice of material and subject. For any new modeler it is essential to start with simple model kits and make at least 2 to 3 simple models. This will help in gaining valuable experience and a finished model in fairly short span of time.

Great Information Regarding the Model Airplane

The model aircraft are the flying or the non-flying models of those existing or just an imaginary aircraft. They are usually scale versions of the full-sized airplanes which are made of different materials like foam, polystyrene, balsa wood and fiber glass.
The designs are ranging from the simple glider airplane to the accurate scale model that could be very big. Models can be constructed by flying or non-flying models and the techniques for building the two were very different from the other.
Static Model Airplane - this is a scale model of an airplane and being belt by using the plastic, metals, woods or papers. Some of the static models were scaled intended for the wind tunnels, wherein the data that has been acquired can be used for helping the design of the full scaling aircraft.
Promotional Purposes - most of the airline companies permit their airplane to be utilized as models for publicity. In previous days, airlines companies will order big models of their aircraft and provide them into travel agencies in order to make them as promotional items.
Flying Model Aircraft
There are three groups of flying model airplane:
a) Free flight model - aircraft which fly with no attachment into the ground. This model pre-dates the hard works of the Wright Brothers and also other founders. b) Control line model - this aircraft makes use of cables (normally two) leading from the wings to the pilot. A deviation of the system is the Round-the-pole flying model c) Radio-controlled aircraft - this airplane has a transmitter maneuvered by the pilot in the land, transferring signals into the receiver in the plane. Several flying forms look like scaled down form of piloted airplane, while others were built having no intentions of appearing similar to piloted aircraft. Moreover, there are some models of birds as well as flying dinosaurs.
Glider Aircraft- is an aircraft that resembles an airplane without an engine. Bigger outside model gliders are normally radio controlled and hand-winched opposing the wind by a cord connected to the hook underneath the fuselage means of a ring, in order that cord will drop when the glider is overhead. Other methods entail catapult-launching.
Since gliders are authorized, flight should be continued by means of the use of ordinary wind in the atmosphere. A slope or mountain will frequently manufacture updrafts of atmosphere which would continue the voyage of the glider.
