Imodeler helps build model airplanes in Russia

August 19, 2016 · in News · · 12 · 1.6K

I am pleased. I received the prize for the Best in Show victory in May with my model of Grigorovich M-5:

The prize I selected is the set of microtubues. These microtubes are essential for rigging in my models. With I can build even more models.

  1. Well done, Pavel. We look forward to seeing more of your wonderful work.

  2. Nice model……great display case too.

  3. Congratulations, I agree those display cases are nice , a local product?

  4. What I wouldn't give for a dust-free environment like that...nice.

  5. These showcases made in Chelyabikske. It is in Russia, in the Urals.
    Showcases ordered here:
    For tanks price showcases about 85doll.
    To showcase the aircraft ordered by my size.

  6. would love to know how you use the microtubes to aid in rigging! I might build more aircraft with rigging if I could figure out how to do it more successfully...

  7. If you look closely at the photo Grigorovich M-5, you can see a thickening on the skin. These bulges are made of microtubules. With such bulges rigging looks more realistic.

  8. We're trying to accommodate for the various needs of our winners, and I'm happy that we could fulfill your request :). I'm sure you'll be putting them to good use! And of course please remember to share the results.
