    TS-11 Iskra (Spark), 1:33, Orlik 2/2006

    Hello guys :)
    My first thread on this forum. I want to tell you about my impressions fthat I have building this aircraft.
    This plane is very popular in Polish Air Force - it is used to train pilots in Polish Fighter Pilots School in Deblin and in combat units before flying the combat planes.
    This particular plane is used in Polish Aerobatic Team Red-White Sparks which has its base in Deblin.

    So - after this short preface time to present the following stages of work.

    Pilots' cocpit and its equipment: I think it's little to simplified so I decided to add some construction parts:

    Pilots' left and right instrument panels:

    Pilot's central instrument panel (I've added some "glass" :grin:) and "joysticks" before instaling in the cocpit:

    I'm glad someone is doing a build string on this model. When I got the kit myself, I thought it would have a lot of potential as a super-detailed model. You did a great job on the cockpit...I really like the addition of the frames and stringers. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the electronics bay. It looks as if the parts fit has been good so far?

    I got one question.................. Did you put band-aid brand bandages in the first aid kit or use the off-brand generic ones?:roll:

    Great build so far of a very neat subject!

    Hello again guys :)

    First of all thank you for nice greetings :)
    I'm glad that you like my Spark. I have been building this model for almost a year. Yeap - that's a long period of time, but I can afford for building it two or three houres a day (but not everyday).

    Damn - I didn't know that those additions are named frames and stringers - technical English is still my Achilles' heel. Thanks :grin: Talking about fit of the parts - yeap - it has been very good so far. It is a really well designed model and I have to praise its author.
    The electronics bay ... hmm ... I suppose I may disapoint you guys but I'm not going to make it. It's ugly :wink:

    Haha - no ... There are no band-aid brand bandages in the first aid kit - I made those aplied in the kit.

    I think now its good time to show you the next stages of my work:

    The next part of fuselage:

    The next step was a tail part of the aircraft:

    The model is looking every bit as good as I thought it would make up...I told you guys to get one when Papermodelstore had them on sale. Told you so, toldyouso, toldyouso. Not that the skill of the builder had anything to do with it....great job, and please post more of your builds.

    Thanks guys :)
    About showing you my other models - there is a problem. This I'm currently building is first serious one that I'm going to finish. I have several began but not finished. And to be honest - there are not very well build :wink:
    And maybe several words about myself - I'm 29 years old, married :grin:, working as an operator of printing machines in outdoor advertisement. Living in Poland. Almost forgot - several months before starting to build a Spark, I start to working on the pilot - I think he is modelled even better then the plane :grin:

    [​IMG]

    I've decided to show you the current stage of work. I think this is last so huge pack of photos. Now I'm working on the air intakes and in my opinion theese are one of the most difficult parts to make. Well - I'll see ...

    For now I present you: the wings :)

    Note the place for landing light and aibrake.

    Zoom on flap and its constuction.

    Now - the internal construction of wing

    And for the end - a look for Spark with wings :)

    I really like this photo in the hangar by night - note that the light points the characteristic shape of Spark fuselage in the engine exhaust area.

    So - thats all for now. Next update as soon as I finished the airintakes.
    Once again thank you for your greetings guys !
