  1. Thanks guys, yes it will be yellow nose G2.
  2. I am not progressing as quick as I would like, but here is a small update. New decals arrived, which is nice and nice reference for armor plates thanks to colleague @Corsairfoxfouruncle So, I had to dive in and scratch them. It was not too complicated. After that, I joined wings and tails and started to fill in some gaps with Tamiya putty. I hope I will be able to speed things up a bit in the coming days.
  3. Wow, nice save in the end. Congratulations, it's not easy to make it in this short time. I like it a lot
  4. @Corsairfoxfouruncle Thank you, your Stuka looks great, I like the cammo. Hm, I am not sure about the armor plates that I understand. As far as I see on the plans I downloaded, I do not see any significant difference in panel lines nor its thickness. I will be grateful for any help, indeed.
  5. Thank you for your encouragement. Here is a little progress I added scratched details at the fuselage sidewalls and here and there few boxes: Then I sprayed Gunze RLM 66 interior color I used oils and then a bit of drybrushed in the interior, and I glued Eduard's seat belts. Then I glued the fuselage halves together. There will be some putty needed, but nothing dramatic I find out that the protective paper has glued itself to decal sheet and I was not happy with selection from the start, so I ordered aftermarket decals from Hannant's. I polished canopy with Tamiya polishing compound 3 stage paste. I put it just to test the transparency: That is for now, hope I will update soon again.
  6. Thank you very much, guys! @Challenger350Pilot thank you for your kind words, your Flying Dutchman is great! @Witman61 gunze gloss white was problematic. It went dry but after I masked it tamiya tape left its marks and ruined its surface. I had to repaint it few times
  7. Very known Fujimi kit that is in my stash for ages. I will add a few extras, firstly Eduard canopy masks and etched seatbelts and fabulous brass cannons that I purchased in Moson model show a decade ago. Gun barrels I started with the cockpit assembly and added some structural details to the completely flat cockpit side walls. I also glued nose halves to the fuselage halves. I hope I will keep you updated with the progress.
  8. You did good investment in both money and time, in fact, a lot of forward interior will be seen especially instrument panel and cockpit sides. I regret I did not do it on my B.II I did couple of years ago. As always I enjoy watching the progress and reading your threads.
  9. Great collection, brings back child memories of turning pages of a Bill Gunston's illustrated Salamander book from the '80s. Congratulations.
  10. Thank you very much, gentlemen I appreciate it. @Toryu I agree, this early Gekko is my favorite as well.
  11. Thank you, RadMax8. Wingtip navigation lights are kit's clear parts which I hand-painted with Gunze clear Red and Blue. Lights in the middle of the wings are molded into wings surface, I firstly brush painted it with acrylic white colour, and then same Gunze clear Red and Blue.
  12. A typical Fujimi model: not many parts, scarce interior details, very simple build and gentle panel lines. Build process went okay, some effort and several styrene strips are needed for the alignment of rear upper fuselage and the upper wing/fuselage joint. MLG interior could use some details, due to its size. Gunze colours were used over Alclad aluminium base. Upper colour is Gunze Nakajima IJN Green, lower surfaces Gunze IJN Gray. National insignia and yellow ID stripes airbrushed. AK weathering oils were used and chipping was done with various colored pencils.
  13. Thank you for your kind comments, gentlemen. @Hobo Regarding the rigging, I used 0.073 fishing line (for 0.5kg), and drilled holes in both wings for the placement (throughout the wing). I painted the lines with thick permanent marker pen. I glue one side of line in the hole on one wing with Loctite CA gel, than waited for few hours to set. After it sets I take it through the hole on the other wing, then apply paper clip to keep it tense, and glue the other hole. I let it set fully throughout the night. It is not very neat process, since you get outer holes on the surface of wings, but I compromised a bit.
  14. Sorry for the late reply, thank you Robert for hosting this magnificent Group build. This was my first participation in the Britmodeller groupbuilds, and thank everyone for your votes, I really appreciate it. Also congratulations to the @PlaStix and @John D.C. Masters your work is phenomenal.
  15. At the end it was a dash to finish it for our club's exhibition which was open yesterday in Belgrade, so I will have to put pictures taken with smartphone. Build article is here It was my first vehicle build, and I did enjoy building it.
