  1. Too many Hobbyboss 1/72 F-14 Tomcats!

    Looking forward to your upcoming F-14's with the Mission paints Tony, and the return of your Spitfire epic. The only Dark Earth/Dark Green Mk IX I know of is the one used in the 60's for filming the "Battle of Britain" movie, but it could be an interesting addition while also allowing for using the new paints.
  2. Thanks for the info Simon, and another vote for 14.
  3. Wonderful work on getting all the resin to fit Jaime!
  4. That just about jumps off the screen Giorgio, as usual all your details add up to convincing and pleasing whole subject.
  5. Glad to see these coming along so well Simon! Did you have trouble getting the rear portion of the wing bottom attached to the fuselage? I remember I had to cut mine up to get it to fit snug. I really like the blue in the exhausts on the Mk Va. Did you dry brush the blue poster paints for that?

    Wonderful progress Tony, the contrast on the VF-111 decals looks spot on. Thanks for the Mission Models paint update, I've been curious about them ever since I first saw them in your F-16 thread.
  7. That's looking great Ced, can't wait to see the camo. The 'Remount' sounds brilliant as a mask adhesive. Another reason I like to paint masked stuff 'backwards' (darkest to lightest) is that it's much easier to clean up paint 'runs' under the masks if you do the lighter color last. Imagine having to paint out a bunch black 'runs' over white paint - it's a pain, and it never seems to match.
  8. Academy 1/72nd F-15C

    Agreed, the drooped ailerons are a great detail, watching with interest Jabba.
  9. 1/72 Mirage F1CR & F1CT

    They're looking great Andrew, and kudos to your perseverance.
  10. Well, made it before page ten anyways! Standing room only at this point, but well worth it.
  11. Oh wow, this build really captures the imagination Ced, a glorious addition to the ceiling.
  12. I'm a big fan of this project Tony, your eye for detail is impeccable. The exhaust nozzles stand out in particular to me, just amazing.
  13. Agreed, wonderful pics of both the scenery and the Macchi progress Giorgio.
  14. After all is said and done, they turned out way better than decals Ced! I quit using using a white base for roundel painting because of those dreaded 'rings' that always seem to result. I've starting doing the opposite of the generally recommended order: I paint the darkest color first and end with white (blue then red then yellow then white), and things have gone much better. Although, it looks like I did yellow last on this one, for the convenience of masking off the leading edge stripes at the same time.
  15. All of my current builds are in boxes too, waiting for better days. Enjoy NYC PC.
