Model replica of the F/A-18E. The F/A-18E Super Hornet is the most modern fighter aircraft of the US Navy and replaces the F-14. Since 2002 it flies successful combat missions, e.g. during Operation “Enduring Freedom” and in Iraq. Through the use of JDAM and “laser-controlled bombs”, it can attack enemy targets much more precisely and also has an extensive arsenal of guided weapons.

Let’s put on Sherman Resin part 1

Produce Blog Shaman Let’s put on resin 1 part.


Although it is a resin part of Value Gear Inc. which is included in our kit,
Is resin hard? Is not it difficult to paint? The uneasy voice is also a thriller.
If you actually try using it, the charm of the tank will be more up so it will be more up,
Easy, but we will introduce the painting process and how to load on tanks.


① At first the burrs and edges that are attached to the bottom side of the opened parts are made with a design knife
 I will remove it. In order not to wrap the edge more than necessary unexpectedly,
 Let’s process the luggage bag so that it does not turn into strange edges.
② Put on a tank and check!
The picture is jumbo. Four jerry in the rear luggage rack.
I put a wooden box etc on the side. On the rear of the engine hatch, you will have a main big luggage.
Depending on the type of car, the on-board tool is fixed on the hatch or the like, and if placed as it is
Luggage will float. In this example we removed the wrenches.
I want to make it feel good.
③ If you can roughly image, spray the surfacer.
 Especially washing the surface oil etc with detergent is not done. Safu will ride enough as it is.
 Worrisome one should wash with mild detergent. Please dry thoroughly then.
 This time I blew the white surfacer with an airbrush.
④ Next, I blew the brown line to the shadowed part.
Creos’ mahogany is blowing.
⑤ Once dried, you can spray Sandy Brown on wooden boxes.
 I blow it thinly and paint it to make use of the underlying brown.
⑥ I will spray other bags with khaki color.
 Thanks to the underlying brown, you will see a three-dimensional effect.
 I think that the color of bags is your choice.
 After this, if you add dust stains, the look will also change.
 Please paint as you like, including other modelers’ finished products, actual car photos etc.

Dragon 1/48 WW.II German Army Rocket Interceptor Ba 349 D Nutter w / launch pad

About actual vehicle

In the latter half of World War II, Germany, which has been exposed to air raids by Allied Forces, develops and operates various intercept fighter aircraft, but Ba 349 D Nutter was developing as one of them. 
It was a rocket interceptor designed by Dr. Erich Bachhem who was also an engineer of Fiseler. 
Developed as a disposable manned rocket aircraft, the engine is equipped with Walter HWK-109-509 A liquid fuel rocket. 
In addition, four solid fuel rocket boosters are equipped as auxiliary power. 
A pilot rides out of a vertically erected launcher and fires a rocket armored in the model as he approached the enemy bomber in the sky. 
The pilot was to escape and parachute descent. 
The aircraft was made entirely from wood due to lack of supplies. 
In February 1945 we succeeded in unattended testing using a liquid rocket. 
It is said that 10 aircraft have been produced and deployed by the end of the war, but there is no reliable record as to whether they participated in the actual battle and intercepted.

About the model

It is a plastic model assembly kit that reproduced the Ba 349D Nutter on 1/48 scale with the rocket engine requiring machine developed by the German Army in the Second World War. 
Besides the Ba 349 D nutter body, the kit also models the launch pad with full detail. 
The launch pad and launcher tower reproduce the complex frame structure with a combination of plastic parts and etched parts. 
The finished height reaches as much as 42 cm, and the mechanical presence is also sufficient. 
The aircraft realistically reproduces a characteristic style equipped with a short main wing, a cross tail wing on a thick body. 
Of course, we have modeled four takeoff booster rockets as well. 
Transparent parts are prepared for the canopy part, and details of the cockpit are also set for etching parts. 
Markings are available in all three types, including the aircraft marking on the German museum. 
It will be fun to see the state of the test flight of Ba 349 D Nutter who is said to have ended without participating in actual battle, and to think about the state of actual participation and finish it in a scene.
