    Great job Richie. Do you plan to have steady or flashing lights? I have a plan to build a cargo plane with cargo compartment lights, nav lights, landing lights and beacons... But I'm still at the 'thinking' stage, though the model is in my stash for 6 years now
  2. This is probably the most enjoyable kit ever... Quality, fit, decals are great. I got Do-215B4 from ICM which promises to be another pleasant build.
  3. I managed to do some more progress here: The engine was installed together with front section and propeller. Then I started to glue all the exhaust pipes - to ensure they are in proper positions I put engine cowling and fixed all the pipes in their respective holes: The model will be finished without engine cowling panels: Then I installed all the flimsy bits for landing gear. The model is not heavy so I hope these won't collapse one day: Then the canopy was masked and painted in few steps. I didn't use any pre-cutted masks, so I masked each frame rib separately and painted: I attached the opened door (which requires some weathering) And this is how it looks this morning:
  4. Great model! Excellent work
  5. Lovely model. Weathing is absolutely great! well done
  6. That's an interesting one for me. Will follow.
  7. Thanks mate! Thank you Chris. I'm still learning and every time try to apply new weathering techniques.
  8. Thanks Zac. And no, nothing in the kit for the undercarriage retraction, unfortunately. And I don't plan to any extra details apart those seat belts. Want to keep this one as simple as possible Thanks mate! This is really lovely kit. All fit perfectly and decals are superb. Here what have I done over the weekend. Not much progress on the model but did some carving
  9. Thank you all guys for your kind words!

    Great model and lovely finish. Not often you may see any UAV here. Well done.
  11. Here is the link to the RFI:
  12. Hello everyone. Here is my version of Tamiya's Mosquito finished recently. I used Eduard PE set and in order to add some visual interest I think the 'story' was: 'The right engine was hit and underwent an overhaul. However the nacelle still shows lot of soot deposits and also mechanics temporarily installed a different spinner' The entire WIP can be seen here:
  13. Here is another small update. I've completed the painting, gave a coat of gloss varnish (Vallejo) and applied decals. Actually I really impressed of decals quality. They are really thin and stick really nice. All the underneath panel lines are visible:
  14. Ah!.. Found you. That worn wing is absolutely awesome!
