  1. So here's my entry for the GB:
  2. BV222 - she's a big'un!!!!

    Thanks for your ongoing support Jont, and I'll do my best to make sure she has been worth all the effort that has gone into bringing her into fruition
  3. BV222 - she's a big'un!!!!

    Thanks for your feedback Nigel although I'm assuming you were referring to the pre-shading and not my powers of persuasion lol
  4. BV222 - she's a big'un!!!!

    Now there's an idea Stew - the wife need never know
  5. BV222 - she's a big'un!!!!

    Now there's an idea Jaime although I'm not sure 'er indoors' would agree lol
  6. BV222 - she's a big'un!!!!

    Still the million dollar question Jaime - maybe I could build a dock in the garden
  7. BV222 - she's a big'un!!!!

    Thanks Stew - yeah it was a bit of a mammoth pre-shading task!!! Thanks for your ongoing support and hope to have a finished BV to show you at some point in the near future Kris

    Thanks Jaime - I'm still going strong. With regards to the Hellblau, I really like the Revell Aqua acrylic paints as they are really smooth and thick and when thinned ensure that they spray perfectly without any lumps and bumps. (Should get a job promoting Revell products lol)!!!

    Now there's an idea John

    So now the BV has moved into to a WIP thread, I felt another update was necessary. As I said earlier, I now have the RLM 72/73 I need for the main camouflage colours so I'll be cracking on with that next. However, in the meantime I have pre-shaded the entire fuselage and wings and added some white highlights to the individual panels to help break up the paint scheme. I have begun the painting process by spraying Revell Aqua 49 Hellblau on the underside of the wings and the fuselage so the next job will be to mask this off so I can begin the splinter camo. I'll try to get this completed asap and get an update posted for you. So here's where she stands at the moment:

    Never say never John - I'm sure you could squeeze her in some where lol
  12. BV222 - she's a big'un!!!!

    Right folks - thanks to Enzo my BV222 thread has now been moved to WIP from the Flying Boat GB. Hopefully you'll all continue to join in with me as I work to get her finished. I now have the paint I needed so progress will shortly resume. Thanks to all the BMers who have been continuing to cheer me on in this massive undertaking. Kris

    Sorry folks - as you can see I wasn't able to make the deadline for the GB despite the extension. I just wasn't able to make enough time back from when we moved house and the to do list on the BV just never seems to get any shorter. A big thanks to hosting the build Jaime - there are some cracking builds so I'll get my vote in asap for my favourite. Also Jaime, as I am committed to getting the build completed, I wondered if you could look into what needs to happen to get the thread transferred to the WIP so I can keep everyone in the loop with my progress. Many thanks once again and good luck to everyone in the poll Kris
  14. BV222 - she's a big'un!!!!

    Thanks Jaime - hopefully I'll be able to do it justice to inspire you for your build.
  15. BV222 - she's a big'un!!!!

    Hi Jaime, Thank you so much for getting back to me on this - that's brilliant. It will mean I'll have to order these paints as it's always the ones you need that you don't have (Sod's law)!!! I just wish I'd noticed this sooner on the instructions as I would have ordered these much sooner. I'll get these ordered today and hope to still make some progress towards the weekend - looking like it will be impossible for me to get her finished for the GB now but I'll still keep going so I can show everyone the result. Best wishes Kris
