I've finished a few long-standing hangar queens this year and built a few from scratch. One or two more to complete before the year is out, but surprisingly productive! First up is my Eduard 1/48 'Weekend Edition' Fokker Dr.I in the celebrated scheme of Leutnant Friedrich Kempf. It's an aeroplane I'd wanted to build for years and this kit is pretty stat-of-the-art so the mistakes were all mine to make! I think really it's just a couple of mis-glues on the rigging wires, which look a bit messy in close-up pics but it all looks nice enough on the shelf. Camo was done with a base coat of Tamiya Buff, then dry brushing Tamiya Olive and finally deepening the scrubbed-in sections with Tamiya Olive Drab. This was the kit that broke my modeller's block and got me back into the painting and gluing business. My other half is overjoyed (!?)
Good Evening, I thought I had posted pics of this build already but I haven't. Latest release of the Airfix 1/72 Mk.1 Spit that I had originally started to hand paint about 5 years before it hit the skids and ended up on the shelf o' doom! For whatever reason I ressurected it a few weeks ago, rubbed it back a bit with a worn Scotchbrite pad and re-sprayed it using Tamiya paints (I adore spraying these, a real pleasure to work with!). Markings are out of the box and the weathering is pastels. Photo's were from my iPhone and I think I've inadvertently had one of the effects selected at the time but here you go anyway - Thanks for looking, all feedback, good and bad welcome, Eng
