  1. Great Wall Hobby Sukhoi Su-35S Flanker E

    They are on their way, should be in stock in 7 to 12 days. Duncan B
  2. EE Lightning T5 - SWORD

    I believe I'm correct in saying the cockpit colour should be black for the T4 and Admiralty grey for the T5. The T birds cockpit colours followed the single seat aircraft in that the early Lightnings had black cockpits and the later marks having the grey. Duncan B
  3. MiG-25PDS 1/48 Kitty Hawk

    I like that, very impressive build. Duncan B
  4. GWH Su-35S build

    It’s coming along nicely. My stock should arrive in a week or so then I’ll get to have a look at the plastic for real. Duncan B
  5. I’ll just go with what I have already, a bit of fading on top and some dust and I’ll call it a day so I can move onto something else. DB
  6. Wirral Scale Model Show

    To be honest it would take me more than the 5 1/2 hrs that Googlemaps says as I’d be stopping a few times along the way too. Duncan B
  7. Advice sought on paint finish

    Lots of good ideas and suggestions so far and all will work well, it depends on which medium you are most comfortable at using. In your particular situation with the decals on and gloss coated (I presume the decals are sealed in with the gloss?) i would go for fading with oil paints. The advantage there is they remain workable for a long time and can be completely removed while still workable if you think you've over done it or just don't like the effect. Small dots of light colours randomly placed then worked in to spread them around should work a treat. There are lots of examples of how to do this technique on the internet if you are unsure.

  8. Wirral Scale Model Show

    It's only 5 1/2 hours from where I am Mike, have you moved or just got a very slow van? Duncan B
  9. I thought I would seal this wash in with a flat coat then do some dry brushing with a lighter green to pick up the edges and see how it goes from there. Would the reactive armour blocks be the same colour as the main structure or would they be a slightly different tone? Duncan B
  10. Great Wall Hobby have recently released a brand new 1/48 scale Sukhoi Su-35S Flanker E kit. Some of you may have seen the fantastic Work in Progress here on Britmodeller by Ya-Gabor, if not then here is the link to it. I am excited to announce that BlackMike Models are importing the kit into the UK in limited numbers for sale on our website and it is available to pre-order now. The price you will see includes free postage within the UK and subsidised postage rates within Europe are also available on request (contact me for further details on that one). For more information visit the Blackmike Models website or follow this link: https://www.blackmikemodels.co.uk/products/great-wall-hobby-l4820-1-48-sukhoi-su-35s-flanker-e Duncan B
  11. I think I'll have a go at using the pigments. I wish I'd given it a quick dry brush with a lighter green to catch the edges before I'd started with the wash but hey ho. Duncan B
  12. I’ve been away from the modelling desk for a while but did manage an hour late last night to finish off the wash on the turret. Looking back I obviously hadn’t posted photos of the hull after applying a wash so see below. The first photo shows the hull post wash with the turret still waiting. And with the wash on the turret I’m experimenting with an enamel wash for the tracks now. The tracks have been painted a base colour of gun metal and the section on the left has had a wash of ‘dry mud’ applied. I’ve never used pigments wet before so want to try applying some ‘dried mud’ to the tracks too. I can afford to muck these sections up as they’re the upper sections anyway which will probably not even be fitted to the kit. Any suggestions for weathering the tracks and/or the tank greatly appreciated. Duncan B
  13. RFM Panther Ausf. G

    Looks fantastic, can’t wait for mine to arrive. Duncan B
  14. Hurry up with the T11 and someone please do decals for the RAF Leuchars based ones. Duncan B
