  1. I was looking for a relaxing built with no aftermarkets and difficulties. The colourful scheme of this 109 in Hungarian Air Force markings was selected and so I went. Building Ukrainian models is still a challenge but it went OK. After some research I came to the conclusion that RLM colors were all right for this bird, all MRP brand. A lot of masking has to be done for the Hungarian colors on the tail plane. The plane once complete had a little sparrow look! No decals but masks, a little weathering but to a very decent level et voilà. I do not have infos on this plane, Modelvist writes that she was in Varpalota in 43. An enjoyable project in a rare dress! Cheers to you all. 7B4F7D30-D128-437E-BE85-1D964334AA1C_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr 88F8A178-EAE0-49D7-B71C-F2A378C0FC55_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr 01684E29-6F63-423C-B7EC-FCA482E1D662_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr 301E81A0-EC69-4773-8431-CD963877C826_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr B07C7D00-DA42-40BB-95F0-E9ADFB84FBB8_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr 82663DD7-60CC-499E-9CE5-270A5609B4BC_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr 0BF3E35E-BE04-4C67-B278-63209B2C1317_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr
  2. Ah my Italian Hero modeller has striked again! Stupendo Giampiero, molto stupendo!
  3. Thanks but that's not the most difficult part of that kit!
  4. Thanks a lot for the comments folks! The Bloch 152 was te first child of Marcel Bloch, latter of Dassault name, father of the Mirage!
  5. I strongly suggest you use vinyl masks and paint your markings. Tamiya decals are not at the top and there is no secret there.
  6. Good year to you all despite the persistent clouds overhead! So my first kit for 2022 is the Bloch 152 from Dora Wing in 48th. It will be my last as I have already done a Greek 151,and early 152 a late 152 (on commission) and another late 152, this one for my own. It is not an easy kit but dimensions and details are OK so it is up to your skill and documentation to raise the level of detail. The Rennaissance set gives you the flaps which are always down on the ground because of the gazoline vaps, a much better seat and individual exhausts for the 151 and early 152. The 20mm guns are made from copper tubes, the kit's one are undersized. The ejection holes under wings were open and reduced in size and that's make a difference! I did vac the sliding part of the canopy, add the rails for it, riveted the whole kite, painted all the roundels but used the kit decals for a plane of the GC I/8 in 1940. The plane crashed on take off on April the 20th, pilot Second Lt Lamaison serial n° 236 with a cool patchy camo not often seen on the 152. The colors are what l'Armée de l'Air used and paints are all Gunze stuff. Feel free to comment, cheers.

  7. Great job on the "Ginga". The hairspray is the best technic for the chipping effect, but you have to do it fast for after the paint is fully dry.....
  8. Having done that kit some time ago I can only agree with you, and appreciate your work. Cheers.
  9. Nothing as I work with the airbrush free handed. IMHO hiding the spots will do a fix pattern which is not what reverse mottling is. Best regards.
