    Dragon/Platz 1/35 Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.D - base update 18/02/19

    Excellent work on the base Stix, very effective.

    Excellent news Aaron! Two great choices for your build, though I suspect the Columbia Helicopters one will be much easier to do as it is ex-military and has the same windows as all the kits do (except for the blown side windows on the cockpit) whereas the New York one has a completely different window layout, and they are square as opposed to round. Really glad that you are still with us on this one Nigel as I love your helicopter builds. With both yourself and Aaron on board I think we have 2 of the best helicopter modellers in the BM community taking part, I think this will be an excellent GB and I'm looking forward to seeing all of the builds come together.

    Yugoslav Messerschmitt

    Very sorry to hear that Dennis, and please do not apologise for explaining your situation and you are definitely not hijacking my thread. Reference the Sea Knight do not worry about not having one, we have all signed up for GB's with the best of intentions and then not been able to participate for one reason or another, you also have the Patton GB to organise so don't worry. Regarding the Yugoslav markings I might be able to help you out there, I have some spare options on the sheet I won't be building to which you are welcome, however if it's the same scheme as mine you really want I might be able to get you what you want from a very good friend in Serbia, it might take a while though as I'm not sure they are still commercially available.

    Yugoslav Messerschmitt

    As Col says there is a very easy cure for that, it just needs a small injection (of cash that is) to an on line retailer and hey presto problem solved!

    Yugoslav Messerschmitt

    Thanks Col, yes she does look a bit different to the usual Luftwaffe schemes. I'm thinking the same regarding the wheel wells and unless a Yugoslav pilot or ground crew from around 1950 turns up and tells us different (you never know!) then I think RLM 02 is what I will go with.

    Mark's Stearman PT-17 Kaydet

    Great choice Mark, truly a classic trainer if ever there was one. What a God awful colour plastic to work with, reminds me of the old multi-colour Matchbox kits!

    Yugoslav Messerschmitt

    Forgot to mention that I'm unsure what colour to paint the wheel wells as I'm not sure if they were left in their original RLM 02 or re-painted in the same light blue as the under surfaces, I believe the undercarriage legs were left in their original colour.

    Very nice choices Col and a very nice start on the cockpit. Good to get the end of one generation and start of another in your build.

    Yugoslav Messerschmitt

    Time for an overdue update. Having done next to nothing during the week I have had a very busy couple of days and have managed to complete the camo scheme. After a bit of deliberation I decided to use Aeromaster Russian Dark Grey and Aeromaster Russian Light Blue for the main upper and lower colours respectively and have since found out that they are correct (that was a bit of luck!) and have used Revell's Leather Brown for the disruptive red/brown for the upper surfaces and I have to say that I quite like the scheme and the colours. Here are some pictures of how she looks at the minute, starting with the upper surfaces; Next up is the lower surfaces which are actually more blue than they look in the picture; And a closer look at the port fuselage on which for some reason the Yugoslav's decided to roughly paint around the roundel, they didn't bother on the other side and just painted straight onto the camo; That's it for today, next job will be give her a gloss coat in preparation for the decals and to help seal the paint. Thanks for looking in and as usual all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Craig.

    Don't worry those two weeks will fly by, especially for those of us still trying to finish models in other GB's .

    Revell, 1/72 ausf. H

    That is looking excellent Glynn, looks far better in 1/72 than I could achieve in 1/35!! The weathering looks spot on to me, can I ask how you achieved the scratched paint/exposed bare metal look? I look forward to seeing the Winter whitewash look, you know how I like a good Winter scheme .

    Airfix Sea Fury 1/48

    Another cracking build, very well done Steve.
  13. I really like this one Nenad, I like the IL-28 anyway but to see one in a very unusual scheme and use makes it even better. Very well done.
  14. Very nice work Nenad. Great job on the spray bars.
  15. Very well done Aaron, she looks great. I wondered what you had been up to as I hadn't seen you post anything for a while. I think the colour scheme is really good, very eye catching.
