  1. Woah, this thing is big! 8) Biggest model on the bench so far... well, except for the Monogram F-14 I built in Jr high. Makes my MIG-21 look tiny in comparison. I know a lot has been said about this kit, but I have to put my two cents in as well...(this IS the internet after all hahaha) I think this kit is so much fun, it's very well done. Clever engineering and fit make this a pleasure to build at every step. Every sink mark so far has been hidden by another part. I'm enjoying this build. Here is the cockpit, still got some work to do on this. I haven't even started working on the seats. Swing wing mechanism is fun to put together AND works really well. No wobble here. Painting of the insides before assembling parts: Painted the insides of the intakes. Installed! And here is what I'm going for! Thanks for looking!

    @Vinnie You’re going to enjoy having an airbrush. I only used masks for the yellow sections. The camo was done freehand. Thanks

    Yes! The new tool Eduard 190A-4 kit. Great kit.

    Thanks for the comments folks. I finished this up a few weeks ago. Check it out at: thanks!!

    I just try to marble or "squiggle" the colors or lightened colors together and then spray a super thin base coat over it all. I think its actually easier than a pre-shade. Another thing that may help you is the I apply the panel wash over a flat/semi-flat coat. That way, some of the wash gets stuck in the finish around the panel line/rivets. It doesn't wipe off as easy as over a glossy surface. That's new for me, @Brewer got me to try that and I like it a lot. does that make sense?

    I didn't pre-shade per se, but I did build up the colors. I did a modified "black base" by just using the bare plastic as the base. I lighted the color two times and built up the lightest spots to be in the center of panels or details and left the panel lines to be the darkest. The panel wash did the rest of the shading.
  7. Stick a fork in it! 8) It's done and I had a lot of fun doing it. I really recommend this kit. It goes together well and doesn't seem to have any negative aspects. 190 gear is difficult, but this kit makes it a lot less scary to get the angles right. I know a lot of you are building it now... or have recently finished the kit. I've been enjoying the 190 builds! Jason Brewer took some good shots for me!

    That awesome. I love it.
  9. 1/48 Eduard 109G-4 "Black 1" Oblt. Franz Schiess 8./JG 53 Photos: Jason Brewer // Brewer Models I wrapped up this G4 right before the end of the year. The model is finished out of box from the Royal kit. I used EagleCals for this fun set of markings. I have to say, this has to be one of my favorite schemes that I've done in a while. I really like the RLM 78/79/80 combo. I'm looking for more of these Sicily/Italy schemes. I used Tamiya, Mr. Paint, and vallejo colors for this build. Thanks to Brewer for the pics!

    Wrapping things up. My Aussie spit builds took center bench for a bit. Got the decals on, satin clear, panel wash, and weathering. thanks for looking!

    Hey ModelerCH, thanks for the kind words. I use tape to get a hard edge line, but for all other camo, I freehand it with my airbrush to get a "softer" edge. And it's quicker for me than to mask the camo.
  12. 1/48 Aussie Eight Dual Spitfires

    Thanks everyone for the kind words! Like I said, these kits are so fun to build. Good question. IF I remember correctly, the Ultracast was my favorite due to slightly better fit and details. But both are excellent! I masked and sprayed Tamiya flat black as a base and then applied multiple coatings of Rustall until it looked ok. I spray the Tamiya black straight through the airbrush so I get a nice flat finish so the Rustall sticks well. Thanks!

    Also, here are the paints I used for “Teeth.” The NATO green was added to the RAF dark green to bring out some green. The rest of the Tamiya colors took care of the RAF scheme. The RAAF colors were approximations. Gunze for foliage green and the MRP shards for the sky blue and the gray. Thanks
  14. 1/48 Aussie Eight Dual Spitfires

    Thanks you! I didn’t use a dull coat varnish on the metal. I did use a matte clear for the decals so they wouldn’t be shiny. I wanted the NMF to be clean looking because they real plane was kept relatively clean. The panel wash and weathering helped keep it from being too glossy.
  15. All finished up! Thanks!
