  1. Nice paint job on that Panther. Yellow is one of those colours like red very translucent so if you paint it over a very dark undercoat it takes a fair few coats to get it to the colour shade you want, I find the painting over a white base is better, but that could just be me.
  2. Not a big fan of USN aircraft but can appreciate a beautiful build and excellent paint job on a 72 scale aircraft. Rally like the cockpit detail I have in the past really struggled to get ejection seat handles on 48 scale never mind 72
  3. Do a Google and there are a couple of YouTube videos showing it taking off so I guess the answer is yes. Cracking build of such an unusual machine.
  4. Nice aircraft and build looks really good. Which one of the many Greens did you use for the upper camo? EDIT Its OK I went and read the blog post 'properly' that will learn me I'm getting the 72scale version of this, from Telford, but I think the one I'm getting has the Daimler Benz engine
  5. Other than Tamiya I am not sure. Alpine Minitures do a fair bit of German WWII including DAK http://www.alpineminiatures.com/35figures.html but they are 1/35th scale. There is the old DAK and 8th Army 32scale stuff from Airfix and or Revell which were plastic. I guess you want them for the 48th scale vehicles as not much use those links.
  6. Was at the IMPS Show on SUnday picked up: Yep is anyone remebers this is the thrid time I have got this figure. Also a couple of figures from Tommy's War range, they are really well scluputed with very small cast blocks attached.
  7. That looks really good as Giemme said you have caught the expression rather well.
  8. Hi Schwarz, Thanks for the advice, it is somehting to certainly bear in mind when I do my next figure, that I think will be a Crusader
  9. Long time no post. This is Scale 75 figure with the name of Operator 79. You don't often see him painted up and normally he is done like the box art in yellow. Mine is a little different in color . I start this, with a WIP, over a year ago, then lost momentum, mojo and any interest in him and he sat on the self all that time. Well I have got a bit of mojo back and decided to finish him. I am still learning how to paint figures, there was a lot of trail and error and while I like how he has turned out, I still need practice on many bits and pieces. Anyway here he is.
  10. Good work on that 109 F4, must build one of these one day. Out of interest have you read the book, Luftwaffe Fighter-Bombers over Britain: Tip and Run Campaign, 1942-1943 by Chris Goss? I'm reading it at the moment and find it fasinating and could give you a wealth of kit ideas to build
  11. Nice build Andy Looks good, the tracks are nicely done as well.
  12. That looks realy good. I must practice more.
  13. Sorry my mistake There is chap on the Forum called "Andy" is person I was trying to refer to should not write quickly when at work. Anyway the same said Andy also did build a Whippet http://www.themodellingnews.com/2015/09/takom-whippet-mka-build-pt-iii-painting.html which shows what he did for the tracks, looks like rust effect type thingy.
