  1. 1/72 Spitfire now started

    Progress this weekend
  2. 1/72 Spitfire now started

    Thanks everyone. Will keep updating so it’s progress is seen, as well as what it’s like to build, as I’ve always seen resin as high detail but not as easy to work with. Can be worth it as a good challenge.
  3. 1/72 Spitfire now started

    Bit more done Even more filler time
  4. 1/72 Spitfire now started

    Some progress, not too much but in right direction
  5. 1/72 Spitfire now started

    It’s CMR Czech Master Resin Boultbee Spitfire. 1/72. Photos make it look bigger!
  6. 1/72 Spitfire now started

    Ok. Why no photo? Just a link. And why hidden contents? Got a lot to learn on here.
  7. Took a while but at last started the Spitfire build. Pictures will follow it.
  8. What scale size figure?

    Fred - wow! Impressive. 1/72 was the huge challenge I see. Glad you use them. Dads203 - I think you're right, that might be where I'm at. Not done just figures and might get addicted like you. I already have an activisor DA5 so guess heading in that direction. Yep, bigger the model so more detail, so figures will have buttons, belts, creases etc. and then shadow colour change. So much to perfect.
  9. What scale size figure?

    Having done a lot of modelling over years ( and sorry I'm new on here!), one of the latest interests is figure use. Looking at all the different ones in progress or finished, they look amazing. The big challenge though is many look very small to me. 1/72 must be impossible to paint in detail and even 1/35 looks small. The photo detail is brilliant, until I see an object alongside that is recognised as real size and makes it scary, such as tweezers that look massive or cocktail stick, paintbrush etc. So, starting to build experience or learn what to do, what is the best scale/ size figure that is easiest to get painted and be able to see what you're doing?
  10. Tamiya RAF colour

    Thanks everyone. There may be a lot on the internet, but on here you get to know and see what actually works. Real shame about photo *uckit. So many forums (not just modelling, lots of types) have lost so many pictures.

    Good spot! I assumed they were all XF, as you say, it is
  12. Tamiya RAF colour

    Thanks. That will make it easier. One of the Tamiya paint charts I looked at didn't show those so, when I searched the paint numbers you quoted I've found different Tamiya paint charts with those on them. Great.
