  1. Final assembly ongoing.... Just the underwing bits and wire antenna to finish off. Used Micro Klear for the wing light.
  2. That's looking lovely - some great skilz at work. Which MRP did you use for the cockpit - DSG?
  3. With the end date creeping closer I got the Tamiya panel line accent on, weathering done and dullcote on dullcote on
  4. Bit of weathering, exhausts on and dullcote done. canopy on - week to go to get the last bits on, antenna wire etc..
  5. Well I thought I'd best join now the #BoB80 build is drawing to a close. I over extended a bit on that with lockdown, working from home so no commute etc, a couple of builds not finished and I have 2 helicopter builds still to get done on the next KUTA build. So lesson learned, I will do 2 builds, starting with this, pretty much OOB with crew from elsewhere. I am looking at what subject, I may go out and get some aftermarket decals - I have some already, plus I could also kill 2 birds with 1 stone modelling a 617 Sqn airframe.... I did build a 13 Sqn GR1A airframe in w

So lesson learned, I will do 2 builds, starting with this, pretty much OOB with crew from elsewhere.

  7. I agree - last time I build the 1/72 Revell kit it did seem a tad over engineered for 1/72. Will see how I get on this time!
  8. Gloss on and started the decals... thought I'd paint the exhaust stacks etc, cannons/guns a few more stencils to go. Lots of different references around of the aircraft through its life, showing the cam, lack of stencils in areas and also weathering.. Some interesting info on the link.... http://falkeeins.blogspot.com/2009/12/helmut-wick-his-me-109-wnr-5344.html Early pic
  9. Ok - I have these kits - debating on what to enter once I’ve finished the #BOB80 GB.... any tips or advice welcome - 2 from 4 realistic ! or
  10. So on with the RLM71. I used light earth on the panel lines and a lighter green plus RLM02 to 'marble' the area to try to have some various tones Seems ok Stipple brushes at the ready! bit of practice on the paint mule and away we go.... First go was a bit heavy in some areas so I resprayed some panels with RLM65 tried again... references show
  11. So the second set of decals were the same....I managed to get the unit emblem on the Stbd sid, the H's underneath that are surgically re-joined and some of the stencils etc... Sealed in with good old Tamiya X22 Some Tamiya Panel line accent - I removed the remaining bit on the Port wing! Want to get some over and under wing exhaust effect using inks next, before getting the Dullcote out....h
  12. Pushing on with this build - time is short and I want to get that stipple brush into action!! Some white primer for the RLM04 yellow bits... Masked and primed... Used various colours ro 'marble' over the balck to get some worn tonal variation.... Half done! Not too worried by the sides as they will be fairly well covered in RLM71 stippled paint...
  13. Sadly I am not going to get this build completed by the finish date....I will keep on it and add any updates here, maybe transfer over to the forthcoming KUTA build - I think I was a bit over enthusiastic with the BoB 80 build, the lack of a commute and more time with working from home...my bad!
