  1. Thanks! One of the covers is Barracuda and the other is ultracast and I can't remember which one is which.
  2. The MSG was kinda dark. I "black" based it over a dark gray instead of black to help lighten the final coat, but I think it's still too dark, so I worked on lightening the MSG. I think it looks better now and not as much contrast between MSG and sky blue. The other 8 will be NMF and I haven't done one of those yet. So someone told me to use a tamiya rattle can as a base and then build up some alcald or similar on top. AS-12 bare metal silver Then I used duraluminum and white aluminum alclad shades (and a mix of the two) to paint panels. So far so good... now the lowers. Thanks!
  3. WIP: 1/48 Eduard 109G-4 "Black 1"

    Agreed! And early Gs. I have an F coming up with all yellow nose and 79/78!
  4. Cockpits were finished up: Assembled: Painting the lowers: I don't have RAAF sky blue, so I used something I believe is close. Should work. Thanks for looking!
  5. Eduard's 109G-4 from the Royal boxing! Here is what I'm going for: Cockpit: DOH! Fixed: Lowers in Gunze RLM 78. Drop tank is RLM 76 just for fun. It's plausible to me. Yellow sections is Model Master RLM 04 and white is some gunze FS color. RLM 79 is Tamiya Desert yellow with various other shades for shadow and highlights. RLM 80 is Vallejo model air. Thanks for looking!
  6. 1/32 Revell Bf 109G-14 "Blue 62"

    Thanks Roman, Check out the right up from Anders on his profile paint shop page. http://theprofilepaintshop.blogspot.com/2013/10/bf109g-14-schwarze-62.html Anders' work is inspiring.
  7. 1/32 Revell Bf 109G-14 "Blue 62"

    Agreed, the undercarriage is really weak. That's the worst part of the kit in my opinion. I actually broke one leg in half where the oleo is. Was not fun to fix, but It's holding. Very good point. However, I still think there is some merit to the Revell kit. The main thing going for it is price as you can get them for a good deal. Out of the box, I don't think they look too bad. Adding the resin did add cost, but I enjoyed using all the barracuda parts, nothing but nice things to say. The barracuda parts bring a lot of value and look good. Now, having said all of that, I will buy Hasegawa 1/32 109s from now on (minus the revell 109G-10 already in the stash). I built the 109F-4 from Hase and thought it was a pretty solid kit. I'll still be tempted to add some of the barracuda parts though. That's all my humble opinion.
  8. 1/32 Revell Bf 109G-14 "Blue 62"

    Thanks!! 1/3 of the prop spinner was white. That's what the profile shows. It's interesting that it's combines with the spiral as well.
  9. It's done. Took me about 3 years to pull it off. Only the second 1/32 I've built. I have mixed feelings on 1/32. They are fun, but also are easy to mess up for me. This build had several "its going in the trash moments" but it survived to see the end. Revell 109G-6 with Barracuda Wheels, prop, scoops, exhausts, decals, cowling bulges, and intake. I also used Ex Line and RB fabric seat belts. The top colors are Mr. Paint late war colors and the lower paint is tamiya mix. The RLM 76 tail is also Mr. paint. Big Thanks to Jason Brewer for once again taking pics for me! Pics: Thanks for looking!
  10. Thanks for the NMF rear cockpit section reminder. I have done that in the past, but most of it couldn't be seen, so I haven't done that recently. I may paint the rear bulkhead that actually sticks up in the rear window to give the impression that it's bare metal back there. As for markings, I'm doing an NMF and toothed one.
  11. Two at once... Aussie spits coming up. (for the next 10 years, at my building speed) I'm building these for a customer and am enjoying the build so far. Personally, the Eduard spit kit might be one of my favorite kits to build. images hosting images hosting images hosting images hosting Thanks for looking!
  12. 1/48 La-5FN

    Done! Here are some pics from my buddy Jason: Eduard boxing of Zvezda plastic AKAN paints Thank you!
  13. WIP: 1/48 Eduard (Zvezda) La-5FN

    Thank you! I'm sorry I haven't responded sooner!! The cockpit is stock from the box with the addition of PE from Eduard. This is the Eduard boxing so it came with extra PE and resin wheels. The cockpit builds up really nicely. Even without the PE, I think the pit can look pretty good. It takes longer because of the extra pieces.

    A little update.... img
  15. WIP: 1/48 Eduard (Zvezda) La-5FN

    I'm using Akan amt-14 for the interior color. I think that's the name of it. I'll have to check the bottle. Got some post shading finished up and tape off. enjoy!
