    Hey, at least you have some completed GB builds under you belt. This one will just sit on the shelf awaiting the return of your 'mojo.' Very nice build so far.
  2. 1/48 Airfix P-51D Mustang

    Very nice model and some really good work.

    Great looking Butcher Bird! I really like the paint scheme. Those close-up shots are outstanding.

    Got the radiators painted, and also gave them a dark wash, post-pic. Then I needed to make clearances in the nacelles, as the PE parts are too wide. I took my dremel and ground out some space in each nacelle side, being careful not to punch all the way through. Which I then did, of course... No fears though. A little stretched sprue and glue, and it'll be all fine.

    That top looks real good.
  6. 1/72 Matchbox Lancaster... with Extras

    Okay, so I'm waiting on some paint for the cockpit of the S6B, which means I will miss that deadline, so that one is on hold and I'm coming back to Fanny! When I left off I was working on the nacelles - and I still am... I was thinking I was going to have to scratch some radiators together, when I realized that I have some on the WEM fret, so I quickly folded those together. The sides are gappy, but those won't be seen. All that matters is the front and back being seen through the openings, and trial fits show good. They'll be painted a silver metal color and then washed, and then glued inside. Once those are set, I can close the nacelles up. After, of course, putting backings into the exhaust holes. Don't want those resin exhausts to fall in, now do we..? Once that's done, I'll head to the gear wells which will require some cutting and shaping of the holes, and then placement of the PE parts.

    Thank you very much! I have some paint on order for the cockpit. I'm going for Tamiya Park Green, which looks to closely match the color in one of the pics I have. But it will take a bit to get here, so the build is on hold til then. While I'm waiting for that, I'm going to jump back onto the Matchbox build of my 1/72 Lancaster. Wish me luck!
  8. Very big Batmobile

    Great job on the vents and covers!
  9. Wow, that's looking great! Cockpit and everything has such very nice detail.
  10. 1/48 Supermarine S6B

    Okay, I know the deadline has been extended to the 14th, but I still won't be finished. No big deal though, as I'm not a fast builder any way. So saying that, some more progress pics! The cockpit is pretty much done, except for paint and dials. The seat is done too except for belts, which will be PE. And I need a control stick, but that can be just a simple length of rod... It's a little rough here and there, but much of that will be hidden by the narrow view into the 'pit from above, so I'm not concerned. Now, onto paint for that part! As for that, the pics I have show a dark grey IP but with a bright green color for the rest of the interior, and that's from two planes, both a restored and non restored, and also from a colored diagram. And I need to do a headrest. Forgot that part. Oh, well, always more to do...

    A little addition is not a bad thing, unless you go all out with time running dry, like I do!
  12. 1/48th FW190D-9

    That's a good looking cockpit.
  13. They almost look like full size power plants.
  14. Nice paint job going down!
