  2. Great build and finish I have an academy version in the stash I think I will use your multiple metallic colour method with the paint as it looks amazing Cheers Bruce

    1/72 Revell Avro Lancaster B.III

    Great Lancaster Roman I wish my builds were half as good!! Have you thought of gently using the tip of a wooden toothpick to very carefully scrape and remove the black paint from the canopy that wasn't masked correctly? Often if I have overspray or paint creep on canopies I tidy up the windows back to the canopy framing using this technique.....it works pretty well .....might be worth a try??? Cheers Bruce
  4. lookin great to me well done indeed
  5. What a suitably beastly beast! I reckon Revell used the same night fighter antennae on the FW as they did on my Do 335! Great version congrats!

    Matchbox? Do 335 Pfeil 1/72

    LOL thanks Paulo. I think the correct phrase is "make a silk purse out of a sows ear" (a sow being an older female pig) and yes the meaning is to make something refined, beautiful or admirable out of something of poor value or poor materials. Was originally used in the negative as in "You cannot make a silk purse out of a sows ear" ...... I am very glad you think I have managed to do it with this old Frog, Revell, Matchbox kit! She's not perfect by any means but it looks interesting in the cabinet. Now I have to get back to that P-40 that is on the shelf of doom! Cheers
  11. Great Jug. Academy kits have a great level of detail and build up nicely for the price You have done a superb job on this one Cheers
  12. I love it but it's teasing me! Get a little more light on the subject so we can see her in all her glory Cheers Bruce
