  1. The best thing about Mr colour paints is that you always seem to get the same finish every time, so if you're like me and forget a bit...you get the same colour every time. They have been a real game changer for me.
  2. Second one completed of 2019 is the Focke-Wulf Fw190 A5 from Hasegawa, this again (same as the Bf-109 G10) is a great kit, with no issues at all. Painted with Mr Colour paints and thinners (amazing products in my opinion). My choice of aircraft was quite easy as the Stab/Jagd-Erganzungsgruppe aircraft of Ost, Maj Herman Graf was so colourful and different, this was based in France 1943. If anyone can enlighten me on the markings, id be very grateful of the knowledge.
  3. This is a Hasegawa 1/32 Bf-109 G-10 and it proved a very easy build, no major fit issues at all (a nice change). I have painted it using MrColour paints to represent an aircraft from 2./JG300 Feldwebel Ederhard Gzik based in Germany, October 1944. I added some photo etch seat belt from Eduard to set the cockpit off, I hope you like 'Rita', I am quite happy with the results.
  4. Sorry for the late reply first of all. The Jug with the duck on is indeed straight out of the trumpeter box and settled perfectly, 'Tipsy' decals came for kits-world war bird series and settled down well too. Both decals needed a couple of rivet holes needled and another coat of micro-sol applied to get them completely settled, but no real drama.
  5. It must be jugs season lol! I just completed two of the trumpeter 1/32 kits: Jugs rule!!! Well done on yours, I love the realistic faded paint work 10/10
  6. Yayyy! Some one had too, well done for being 'the brave one' hahaha! Thank you for your kind comments
  7. Thank you for your kind comments, these two are made from the trumpeter P-47D Razorback kit. It's a nice kit and goes together pretty well, no major fit issues at all. I've gone over to using Mr Colour paints and levelling thinners, to me, these are the best paints on the market at the moment. So I used their standard OD as a base and then toned areas with four different tones, black, brown, white and a lighter green, so it took some effort but I'm happy with the effect.
  8. After completing the second of the two P-47D, I couldnt help myself with the title of this post This aircraft is 42-75242 which was flown by Capt Michael Quirk flying for 62nd FS/56th FG, Halesworth. Now the two Jug's together...... Jug #2 can be seen @ https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235048871-132-p-47d-razorback/&tab=comments#comment-3234006
  9. Yes, they are decals and in fairness the trumpeter and war birds decals always seem to set well. I use the micro sol/set combination and cover the kit in 2-4 gloss coats before weathering and final matt coat. These extra layers has seemed to be the key to getting a painted on look.
  10. Hello Dennis, thank you for your kind words. The only masks I used on this kit were the Eduard pre-cut canopy masks. Or was meaning the star 'n' bars and other markings?
  11. Happy new year to the modelling world and builders!! This is my 1/32 Trumpeter P-47D Razorback with the Kits-world War Birds decals used. This kit went together well, even though there a few minor instruction issues, but nothing major to overcome. Painted with MRP paints...……….which are highly recommended! Built out of the box other than the decals. A bit about the man:- 2Lt Paul Ellison who was shot down by flak on 17th July 1944 while flying "Tipsy". After taking off from Picauville he was hit by flak just after bombing the bridge at Conde-sur-Vire. Bits of the wing started to fall away and Ellison bailed out at about 1000ft. He evaded capture and returned to military control on 2nd August. Now the machine......well, my version of it Hope you like it, id like some feedback on the prop as I tried for the first time, the salt weathering technique it simulate some weathering on the prop. Thanks for looking, all comment are welcome
  12. Thanks for that addition information, a real legend of a man.
  13. Go for it, it goes together pretty well without any major fit issues.
