TBM-3 Avenger USS Bunker Hill US Navy Bomber Academy 1/48

The TBM-3 kit is in the Academy's box and is actually an Accurate Miniature kit. Decal is made of high-quality Cartograf, so I bought it a long time ago. On the way, my cat took the canopy and broke it. I had a hard time. But I managed to complete it.

Mig-21MF Fishbed J Soviet Air Force Academy 1/48

This is Academy's MiG-21MF. This time I chose light brown and dark brown camouflage. I think it is camouflage paint that is often seen in desert areas in the south such as Afghanistan and the Middle East. The weapon of this MiG-21 is one large drop tank in the middle and equipped with Atoll missiles K-13 and K- 13A on both sides.

Corsair F4U-1A U.S. Navy Carrier-Based Fighter Academy 1/48

This is Academy's Corsair F4U-1A U.S. Navy Carrier-Based Fighter. The marking is Bougainville, Papua New Guinea, VF-17 17th Fighter Squadron Jolly Rogers in February 1944. After that, it is a traditional marking that is handed over to the US Navy's 61st Fighter Squadron (VF-61), 84th Fighter Squadron (VF-84), 103rd Squadron (VF-103).
AIRCRAFT OTHERS

MiG-21MF Polish Air Force Academy 1/48

It's the Academy's MiG-21 of the Polish Air Force. This time, I used too much softener to make a large marlin decal look terrible. I think the marking itself is a special marking of the 3rd tactical flight team of the Polish Air Force.
AIRCRAFT RUSSIA

Lavochkin La-7 Soviet Fighter Academy 1/48

It's Lavochkin La-7 Soviet Fighter, Academy's kit. Marking is the ace pilot of the 156 fighter regiment, Lieutenant Colonel Sergei F. Dolgushin No.93. The manual has a 165 fighter regiment, but probably it's a misprint. The color of the aircraft is quite plain. The tail marking serves as an accent.
AIRCRAFT UK

Tomahawk IIb (P-40C) Royal Air Force Fighter Academy 1/48

The Academy's Tomahawk is a British fighter. The fitting of the parts was not bad. The number of parts was small and the shape was relatively easy, and the decal of the Cartograf was beautiful and easy to stick. A marking is RAF 112th flying squadron Tomahawk Mk. IIb AK 578 GA-V Neville Duke pilot airplane in January - February 1942 in Egypt.
AIRCRAFT GERMANY

Messerschmitt Bf109K-4 German Fighter Academy 1/48

It is Academy Bf109K-4. It had a gun barrel made of metal. This is the symbol of the red tulip markings of Colonel Hermann Graf, who is the 52nd fighter wing (JG52) commander. I like that it has a Cartograf decal.
AFV FRANCE

M10 GMC U.S. Army Tank Destroyer Academy 1/35

It's the Academy's M10 destroyer tank. I used a strong primer because the belt caterpillar is hard and doesn't seem to stick to the paint. Marking is the Free French 5th panzer division developing it in Germany in April 1945.
AFV ISRAEL

Merkava Mk. IV Israeli Main Battle Tank Academy 1/35

This is an Academy's Merkava Mk. IV. There is no anti-slip coating on the turret and the upper surface of the tank, so I tried to express using Tamiya's scene texture paint. The chain skirt work was extremely troublesome.
