  1. 1/72 Eduard Spitfire Mk XVI

    I also found getting paint mixed correctly was a hurdle to jump every build! This MRP paint has revolutionized my modeling...no more mixing...just spray away!
  2. 1/72 Eduard La-7

    Started work on this La-7 and it is an enjoyable build. Not quite as refined as Eduard's FW-190 or Spit kits but still a nice kit of a good looking warbird. It is the Profipack boxing so it has masks, PE and lot of decals. I am going to use a Rob Taurus canopy and some PE belts and pose the canopy open. So far so good! Added some brake lines...

    Thank you! MRP (Mr. Paint) has really got me excited about painting. Ready to spray out of the bottle and lays down very smooth. Dries fast and can be removed with ISO when cured. Airbrush is easy to clean with lacquer thinner so changing colors is a snap. Highly recommended! Lots of colors too! Here is the website: http://mrpaint.sk/
  4. 1/72 Eduard Spitfire Mk XVI

    Thank you! It is the Tamiya kit.
  5. Here are a few pics of my Spitfire. Awesome little kit and great fun to assemble! Used MRP paint to finish. Comments welcome and thanks for looking!

    I didn't notice! The prop shaft has a step molded in that prevents if from going further into the engine. Luckily, I haven't glued it in yet so I think I'll see what I can do to make it more accurate. Thanks for the feedback Joachim! Rich

  8. 1976 Ford Bronco

    I have made some progress today, mainly fitting the lift kit and checking the stance.
  9. 1976 Ford Bronco

    I usually build aircraft but ever since Revell released a model of the early Bronco, I have wanted to build a replica of my 1976 Bronco that I have owned for almost 20 years. Three years ago I had it taken down to the frame and rebuilt. To make an accurate replica, I needed some aftermarket parts just like my 1:1. The list includes a 3.5' lift kit, 2: body lift, soft top, front/rear bumpers, 35" tires w/wheels, off-road lights, and a 1990 Mustang 5.0 engine. I have finally sourced all the parts and began my build! This is my Bronco:
  10. Finished up this fantastic little kit. The cockpit is made of 16 parts! Fine panel lines, no flash, and great fit. I added Master Models 20 mm cannons, Montex masks, and MRP paint. Thanks for looking!
  11. "Dora" Shrike

    Finished up my Tamiya Dora. Fantastic little kit! I added Eduard seatbelts, metal tubing for cannons, Eagle Cal decals and used MRP paint. I liked this scheme as I wanted to do something colorful that wasn't from JV44. Also included a couple pix of my FW-190 family. Thanks for looking!
  12. Zee Flying Pencil!

    Thank you all very much!
  13. Hi everyone! Here is my completed 1/72 Airfix Do-17Z. Overall, I consider it a nice kit and fun build. Just make sure you do a lot of test-fitting, especially the cockpit! I used True Details wheels and Eduard seatbelts. MRP paints were used to finish the kit. Also used the Eduard masks...don't build this without them! LOL This was my first attempt at doing some post-shading...what do you guys think? I used MRP Smoke and Engine Soot from their clear line. Thanks for looking!

    Thank you for the information Ian. Your application technique sounds just like how I apply MRP paint (my current favorite). I have the orange line and the Hataka thinners so I will give them a try! Thanks again! Rich
  15. 1/48 HobbyBoss MiG-31B/BM Foxhound

    Looks great! How did the Hataka paints behave? What airbrush, pressure, thinner/paint ratio did you use? I have an RAF set that I plan on using so any info would be helpful! Thanks! Rich
