  1. Looks good with the winter camo. well done
  2. Thanks Greg, I just finished reading the book Shark Squadron Pilot by Bert Horden, which covers 112's time in Italy and by his account the Kittyhawks were hard used in Spartan conditions so they would have been well used. Cheers Greg
  3. ............and i'm done! I really enjoyed this build, and would recommend the kit despite its age, and lack of sharp detail. I think it looks the part when complete. The additions of exhausts, gun barrels, gun sight, piot tube made a difference to the appearance of the kit. The cockpit could do with a little TLC too. Thanks to all for likes and comments, which are always appreciated. Cheers and thanks for looking, Greg
  4. 1/48 Italieri Kittyhawk III in 112 Shark Squadron Markings Cutella, Italy 1944 I added resin exhausts, metal gun barrels from Master who also provided the piot, and ring and bead gun sight. Brush painted with Humbrol and Revell acrylics. TFL Cheers Greg
  5. Great work mate It looks like a really nice kit from the photos, what's the fit like? I have been tempted by the Special Hobby P-40 kits so will be watching with much interest. Cheers Greg
  6. Great progress Keep up the good work, Cheers Greg
  7. Cheers Stix I'm still enjoying this build, and have got the main decals on now. I hope to get more done soon. Cheers Greg
  8. That should keep the mojo ticking over Greg. Any photos to post?
  9. No probs, I had a bit of bother aligning the exhausts cos they come in pairs. Tricky when the superglue sets so quick. They are set solid so I will have to live with it. Cheers Greg
  10. Yeah, on closer inspection I guess you're right My bad.....
  11. Morning Folks! Here are my latest photos on what has become a Kittyhawk III. I finally fitted the brass gun barrels, which were a bit tricky to align, close inspection may show one or two to be a bit squint but hay ho it was my first shot at using brass and resin and i am relatively pleased with the results. They are a bit pricy though but are an improvement on the kit parts. I have two more of these AMT kits issued by Italeri and have learned a few things from this build which will help with the next one. I may attempt scratch building the guns next time.... But on with this one in the meantime. Got the main colours brushed on and have added a couple of Humbrol clear coats for the decals. I am dreading the sharkmouth but its got to be done soon. Build wise there is only the centerline bomb to add the centre canopy section, radio mast and the ring and bead sight. I am hoping to have it completed by next weekend, famous last words.... TFL Cheers Greg
