  1. G'Day All, Slowed up a bit with production. Finally put down some paint. Paint Scheme is British European Ocean Grey/Dark Green over Medium Sea Grey. Ended up using Gunze H335 Ocean Grey and H309 Dark Green Painted the model and blew up some profile pics to make paper masks to paint the top side color. Started sealing the finished paint work with Humbrol Gloss varnish, however it started reacting the the underlying paint (same problem when using Humbrol Satin and Matte varnish as well). Ended up with cracks over the wings. I don'

  4. G'Day All, Slowed up a bit with production. Painted the model with Gunze H302 Green. I Started sealing the paint finish with Humbrol Varnish - then switched to Gunze and Tamiya acrylic clear, after have problems with other kits currently on the go as well. And slowed down again, left it sit for a week until I did the decals Decals are NovaScale Decals. These are alps printed decals. I would suggest covering the decals with liquid decals film or a clear coat, as the printed images are fragile. I ended up touching up some of the artwork to cover
  5. G'Day All, Continuing my theme build of 100 year anniversary of the Royal Australian Airforce - plus i'm waiting for decals for the other 3 kits i've got on the go. This is the Matchbox Mk.IX/NF.30 kit. Already spent a few days working on it. Assembled and painted the cockpit, assembled major components - wings, undercarriage and masked the canopy. Join lines vary in size, some close up nicely, others leave large gaps in the joints. I was hoping for some DKDecals (de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito in RAAF Service) to use on this kit, however they are out of stock and out of produ

  8. I think its in their classic range now ... I'm looking forward to the new Mk Vc tooling. I have an old Vc that is basically a Vb with extra wings for the Vc. Wings are beautiful tooling with recessed panel lines, yet the old Vb parts are slightly raised panel lines ...
  9. okay, Airfix and fit issues. Fuselage had alignment issues. One side the cowling mated to the fuselage, the other left a gap. gaps in the wing root area and cowling/wing mating areas. And the rear wing mating on the fusleage. At least Airfix is keeping the putty industry going ...
  10. I found a problem with the Canopy fitting to the fuselage. Either the fuselage was too narrow or the canopy was too large. So i added some shims to the forward fuselage to widen it. Which created a larger seem to fill. Mated the wings to the fuselage and found some fit issues as well. And to round it off, the air intake had some issues as well. Break out the putty. Masked the canopy ready for the painting to start.
  11. and moving along quickly. Putty applied, canopy masked
