Hello Dears,

I had a good modelling evening today, started with these

WP_20170830_21_21_44_Pro

Working on some projects and trying to repair my airbrush !

Here's an image that explain a lot, when one talk about my Spitfire building, tell me which one !

WP_20170830_21_58_42_Pro

Here are the 2 Mk IX, the ICM will become a pinkie and the Eduard one will be a russian but RAF:wicked:

The Canadian is on his way, here are the beer keg ! Just painted,

WP_20170830_22_19_03_Pro

2 différents tones of métal, I was hesitating since lot of the barrel ring are usually painted, but whatever, it is iron !

And the bridles added for the Spitfire bomb rack are surely Aluminium, now rectify the painting and then oïl paint to make it alive ! and smelling Guiness !!:drink:

Seemingly, the airbrush is working ! So time to model with a little bit more energy sooooo !

WP_20170830_23_25_51_Pro

This one is good for my ears, I asked my daughter how she felt about going back to school ??

Her answer has been a drawing ! Must share it ..:giggle:

21105772_1385660784884523_480051094656793010_n

She did'nt seem amused, She said Nope I'm already bored !

Given the drawing, I will believe her ! She regrets UK...

Ok Dears, if everything turn good tomorrow, I will give the P-47 her final coat of varnish ! Aaaand RFI is near !

Have a very good modelling day.

Sincerely.

Your daughter is pretty awesome at drawing. Talent must be in the family. I love your Spitfire production line. I'm getting organised to do a few as well...but I have many to finish first. I have been told no new models until you finish some. (My friend's wife is very scary so I obey her. But she is also my friend so it is OK.)

 

I'm looking forward to the pink one, you don't see those done very much nowadays.

Will try to have the pink one finished in 17 at last.

Thank for the kind words, Madlyne is an avid drawer now she master her computerized drawing board !

I havn't looked in on this for a while, so I can see that you've progressed quite a lot, especially with J EJ.

I am tempted to start a Mk iIX soon  ( probably MH 434 ) but I really must finish something else first, like you I'm a serial starter, especially with Spitfires.

 

Cheers

 

John

Hello John,

Mine is JR J Jr the Spiyfire that has never existed....

Will be in RFI in a few days, just hope that no paint or varnish has made his way into the cockpit....

The MiG 3 is about to be RFIed too...

Then don't know may be the F-94C or the RNZAF Mk XVI... or the F-4B...

This year is amazing, I clean up my little personnal MASDC and start another batch of kit...

Will not be cured from startitis soon:P:P:P.

Thank for the kind words,

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

As JR J Jr is nearing the RFI, I take my royal box almost every night and so it is a benefit for the other Spitfires !!

Hello dears,

I have a BIG doubt about the instructions of lifelike decals !!

I need the advice of a Spitophiliac !

WP_20171006_22_17_13_Pro

Upper wing roundel of the same dimension than the fuselage ones ????

We are in July 1945 ! at Fassberg in Germany

If anyone can help ??

WP_20171006_23_04_29_Pro

Here she is ! proudly showing her fern leaf

WP_20171006_23_04_20_Pro

Must confess that I'm a fan of the blacks !!

Have a very good modelling time !!

Hi CC

I think that your decal instructions are correct. I have found a black and white photo of a late war Mk XVI on which tie overwing roundels appear to be the same size as the one on the fuselage, definitely smaller than the older blue/red ones. I also have an Eduard Mk XIV and one of the marking options shows wing and fuselage roundels of the same size.

Hope this helps.

Hello John,

sure it help, my friend told me about huge yellow blue white red ones, as big as the blue red ones.

But if they use also roundels of the same size, it's good to me, I got these !

Thank again.

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

some news from the Spitfire front !

She will receive some weathering soon....

WP_20171017_22_20_06_Pro

I'm pretty skeptical about the angle of the flaps for the PR XIX ????

WP_20171017_22_13_56_Pro

They are for a 90° opening, don't believe that .. So I reduce the angle a bit

The new rocker covers are well blended in the engine cowling

WP_20171017_22_14_19_Pro

A smooth sanding and it will be good !

I find a way to rectify the propeller

WP_20171017_22_13_31_Pro

The airfix one was a little bit anemic ! Here's a solid shot of testosterone !!!

Aaaand 2 little cheaters that were passing by.... Airfix also but not Spit !!

WP_20171017_23_04_37_Pro

As usual, I did almost Nothing of what was planified... :huh:

But plenty of other things !

Have a good modelling time .

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

Here she is going on !

WP_20171020_23_06_59_Pro

With a bit of a syringe needles that propeller will be rock solid !

Huh the PR XIX is accelerating her pace seemingly !

Those propeller blades really make a difference, whose are they please? I think I will need some replacements.

In your photo of the flaps, there was no intermediate setting between 90 or 0 degrees.  They just snapped in or out fully.  And closed immediately on landing or a fine, as the edges were easily damaged, also i think the flaps worsened the already marginal cooling air flow through the rads whilst taxying.

Cheers

Thank you Will,

I will use the closed ones

I don't like the appearances of the fully out ones.

And yes, whe fullu out they really shut down the radiator !
