  1. Finished the detail painting and weathering on all the internal parts. Rudder and stick. Seat. I then checked how the three IPs looked within the pit. From left to right: Eduard plastic with decals, Eduard PE and Yahu The decal version kind of looks best on the picture, but I decided to use the Yahu IP as it is more to scale and the decal panel just has a bit too much of a "pop" effect for my liking. And with the fuselage half. The cockpit is the kit cockpit with the Barracuda seat, Yahu IP and some scratch building. The radiator is done too. The front part is the Barracuda replacement. And the wheel wells are now aged with various colour shades. The Fuselage can now be closed off Cheers, Peter
  2. Finished the cockpit insert with the seat and Yahu lower IP in place. The decal worked well on the right hand side panel. Also placed some Airscale dials on both side panel. Cheers, Peter
  3. Yes it looks that way as the nose stripe doesn't match up with the opposite side. The others don't look too bad. But the picture is of rather poor definition and the stripe borders are not too clear - back to speculations Cheers, Peter
  4. Coming along nicely. What colour did you use for the cockpit? An interior green would maybe look more appropriate. Curtiss used Yellow Zincromate with black mixed in, giving a greenish look. Cheers, Peter
  5. Great outcome . A pity about the silvering on some of the decals. Did you apply them over a gloss finish? Cheers, Peter
  6. Very nice and tidy build Cheers, Peter
  7. Coming along nicely. Cheers, Peter
  8. A great choice with some nice resin stuff thrown in the build I hope you can pull it of to finish it in five weeks. Cheers, Peter
  9. Looks like a popular choice and looks great with an aggressive bite. Cheers, Peter
  10. As with the Tempest, I made the same progress on the cockpit on this build. Placing the decals over the 3d plastic parts worked reasonably well adding a bit of variety to the other ways bland looking pit. Cheers, Peter
  11. Got the detail painting under way. The pictures show a wash after painting, followed by a flat varnish with some oil paint applied as a filter and some silver pencil applied chipping. As Beamont's plane was only a couple of month old, I keep the wear subtle. Next is some satin varnish and then finishing of the detail painting and putting it all together. Cheers, Peter
  12. Looks like a great kit with some impressive detail painting Cheers, Peter
  13. Thanks Jabba. Unfortunately I decided to not continue this build, concentrating on my two builds in the D-Day GB instead as I have a better change in finishing them in the time frame of the GB. I will move this build to the Work in progress forum and will be back on it after I finished the two D-Day builds. Cheers, Peter
  14. Always a great mile stone in a build to have the fuselage together with a detailed cockpit within Cheers, Peter
  15. Taking on shape . Does the front wheel needed to be fitted so early in the build? Looks to be an accident in the making. Sorry, I can't help you with your questions as I am more at home with WWII stuff. Cheers, Peter
