  1. That is a great looking Crusader John. Beautifully built, painted and detailed. Very well done. Kind regards, Stix
  2. Hi Glynn. Great to see you here with what should be another superb project! Very annoying about the lower hull tub - I can't offer any further suggestions to those provided above - not come across this issue with any kits....yet. Looking forward to seeing it in progress. Kind regards, Stix
  3. Thank you Ozzy. I have done a little bit more including giving the wheels, idlers and sprockets a wash of very, very thinned Revell's acrylic Gunship Grey before applying, with a fine pointed brush, some very, very thinned Revell's acrylic Anthracite in and around any detail: I have also applied the same washes over the paintwork on the lower hull - including over the painted Zimmerit: These all need to be dry-brushed with a lighter version of Humbrol's Desert Sand next. I have also given the tracks a coat of thinned Revell's Anthracite but they are not worth a photo as they don't look that different as to how they did to start with because they were black originally. Comments and suggestions welcome. Kind regards, Stix
  4. Looks like playing in (with) the mud has gone well Dennis! Good luck with painting the figures. Kind regards, Stix
  5. Hi John. I agree with Glynn - it does look really good despite the decal issues - and I'm sure you will be able to 'disguise' the problem ones. Hope the washes go on okay. Kind regards, Stix
  6. Hi Badder. Sorry you are having the issues with the spare tracks on the turret but I'm sure you'll get them sorted soon. Sorry also that you are suffering from exhaustion today. If you don't manage to get much more done today at least it will mean there is something to look forward to doing later or tomorrow. Kind regards, Stix
  7. That looks like fantastic progress Arnold! Kind regards, Stix
  8. Hi Yetifan. Good to see you here with a project - I'm looking forward to seeing it in progress. Shame about the ejector pin marks but, as the others and you have said - you won't need to clean them all up. Kind regards, Stix
  9. Fascinating to see the differnce in detail between the two kits. I suppose the Zvezda one will be top if you are looking for ease of build and saving a bit of money but, if you have the time and don't mind paying a bit extra, then the RFM kit will win. It will be interesting, however, to see how much the detail differences will be noticeable in the final models. A lot of the extra detailing on the RFM kit may not be that visible eventually. Kind regards, Stix
  10. Hi John. Nice to see this one underway and your lovely tidy work. Nice idea with the comartments. Kind regards, Stix
  11. Wow! There looks to be more Photoetch there than there is plastic in the kit!! The kit does look very nicely detailed. Looking forward to seeing it in progress. Kind regards, Stix
  12. Hi Badder. Hope you are keeping well. Great to see you are making such fantastic progress and I do enjoy your tutorials - they are very useful. Everything looks to be progressing beautifully. Kind regards, Stix
  13. That really is utterly awesome!! Fantastic modelling, painting and weathering! Very well done. Kind regards, Stix
  14. Another stunning aircraft build Roman and what patience!! Very well done! Kind regards, Stix
  15. Great looking Typhoon from the old kit! Very well done. Great photography too. Kind regards, Stix
