  3. I don't know, I would be tempted by Trumeter's Flagon, but also a nice BF 109G, or a nice Macchi 202 that was in my city, but I should also start Eduard's P-51, Attention!

  7. Happy Sunday everyone In this covid 19 periods we modelers work hard, not all, at home in a smart working regime; Unfortunately I always worked at the airport, it wasn't a bad thing; I worked and managed my job better without bosses and colleagues; maybe heavier weekends, not to be able to go fishing or fly the drone ....... but all in all the modeling has filled well Saturdays and Sundays, a thousand projects, a thousand discussions with my wife, quarrels, peace .. ..... that's it, we have to resist Ok ok let's get to the spitfire in question: I polished with four light coats of Future

  9. Good sunday to All I proceeded with the camouflage until the end, first step the middle stone, but before I did a color pre-modulation with darker brown and white color, it is easily known as blackish spots under the mid stone the next step was to mask the wings to make the American obliterations on the old English signs, as a color I chose the dark earth And in the end I gave the dark earth Now I have a big problem, as you see I have darkened, with a reddish brown, the areas where the Ameri
  10.

Here are the pieces ready to give an exact shape to the plane ... and here it is with its splendid shapes In general excitement, I let myself go with the airbrush and I also gave the blue Azure; I used the RC291 of AK Model Color series; it seemed to me the most correspondent to reality; these colors are pheno
  11. Hello All I finally start some days ago this nice kit. First step was the preparation and partial montage of some cockpit parts; this resin cockpit is an Eduard Brassin item; In took my risks, in the choice of the resin cockpit, well knowing that in this scale it will be very hard......... I chose two colors for the cockpit, Gunze's H 312 as background and the A.MIG 219 which has a lighter shade and tending towards gray as previously said it was difficult to glue the cockpit inside, but it will be cold when I have to
  12. Dear friends I change the subject, this is because I realized that in the package there is a whole tree of pieces that I lent to a friend. The problem is: which friend? I do not remember ! So I change the type of bolt and scale and I present this: "Spitfire F Mk. IX 1/72 - D EN354, 1stLt. Leonard V. Helton, 52nd FG, 4th FS, La Sebala, Tunis, June 1943" in 1/72 scale of Uncle Eduard. I have already built a plane of the same squadron some time ago from a 1/48 Special Hobby kit, here it is: Spitfire Mk.Vc 4nd FS / 52nd FG Maj.Robert Levine this new one afte
