This is really nice model built by Hannu. The attention to detail is awesome and the presence in air is something to see. I did actually try to get nice pictures of this model last year, but something was not right. Now I am happy to say that I am satisfied of these pictures.
This is an extremely nice model built (or actually rebuilt) from Marutaka kit with heavy modifications. For full (and long) story pls. see build log in RCGroups. Ilkka has gone great lengths to replicate all elements of original plane. Even all stickers and warning labels have been copied from pics of original plane and then put to this model. Attention to detail is impressive.
Plane flies really well and it is impressive, really slow flight speed. Really nice & awesome model.
Some detail pics.
I think that this model defines whole idea of awesome model. It is an impressive sight and you can feel it’s presence. Yep, it has Moki 250 which really allows you feel the sound of it’s motor. It’s an really crowd pleaser in flight as it flies in real scale manner. It looks like it has escaped from 1940’s war movie. Really awesome model. There is an long build thread in (finnish) at lennokit.net. (pls. note, you have to register to see pics and it is really in finnish).
Third awesome model at Jämi Scale Open was actually not participating to event at all. It is an scale model of PIK-7 Harakka II which is still under works, but so far it looks stunning. Model is loosely based on our design, but it has been modified to be much more scale. It has been built by expert builder Janne Koivumäki. We made an agreement that I will be taking pics of maiden event so stay tuned for more pics in future.
Second awesome model which I saw at Jämi Scale Open is extremely nice model by Ilkka Klemetti. It is an scale model of Junkers Ju 88 A-4 JK-267 which has detail to make you sigh.
Note that there is an buildlog of this plane, see here.
Once in a while you get to see something which makes your jaw drop. This time it is model of Gloster Gamecock GA-45 by Finnish Scale Legend mr. Jukka Pikkusaari. I think that there is no need for any words. Just check out pics.
ps : It must be stressed that Jukka claims that this model has not yet been completed. Yeah, sure.
Once in a while you see something which deserves an separate entry into this blog. This time it is SG-38 which is owned by G.A. He is well known IGG colleague here. I have understood that this model was originally built by Estonian modeller and then sold to G.A., who then made some restoration, including new covering and rigging. This is truly awesome model and the pics below will tell everything. I have to admit that I got carried away with these pics, but…
