    Hi All I haven't forgotten this one and I've now got the decals on. Just the turrets, aerials, matt coat and weathering to to finish it off now. Dave.

    Hi All, Well, it's nice surprise to see I've got an extra week now. I got caught up in last weekends Blitz Build I so didn't progress this build at all. So now I've got no excuse for not finishing this one properly. I've it given a matt finish, added the recon pod and Atoll missiles and done some detail painting. I've now got the time to do some weathering and add the last bits of photo-etch. Dave.

    It's Xtracrylic Light Aircraft Grey. I don't think I'd recommend it though as my airbrush kept clogging up and the flow of paint was unpredictable.

  7. Nice paint-work I wish I could do the same on1/35 tanks. The single bogey on each side makes me smile. Dave.
  8. DAK Kübelwagen - DONE!

    That was quick! It's so tiny - good work. Dave.
  9. Airfix F-4 Phantom II - FAIL

    Getting as much done as you did is impressive. I think I had 3 attempts at building this kit over four or five years and never got one finished. Dave.

    They're certainly tricky, at one point I thought they were not going to stick. The problem appears be that to get that Day-Glo effect they have used a heavy ink, but the Day-Glo effect is spot on. The leading edge decals are really hard to wrap around the wing and I couldn't do it at first. What I tried was applying Micro-Sol direct to the inside surface of the problem decals so the softener was working quickly. It could have been a disaster for thin decals - but it worked, after 30 mins or so they actually started to conform quite well.

    Hi All, Thanks for looking in and for all the kind comments. I've got chance now to catch-up on the other builds, I think there been some heroic work going on. Dave.

    OK, I'm done. ...phew! Gallery photos to follow. Dave.

    tick, tock, tick, tock Time is running out. The Day-Glo decals are thick and hard to get on - but after a litre or two of Micro-sol they've settled quite well. Quite a few stencil still to go on - I HATE stencils.

    The healthy option.
