  1. Having read several books in a row about the High Middle Ages (the last one about the Templars), I decided to jump further back in time and I'm now reading "The birth of Classical Europe" by Simon Price and Peter Thonemann. It's the first volume of Penguin's History of Europe Series. Starts in 1750 BC, with the Minoan civilisation in Crete, and ends with the end of the Roman Empire in the West (about 425 AD). Very interesting, I've just read a few tens of pages but I'm already learning a lot! Cheers Jaime
  2. Malcom @Baldy, @F-32, Thank you very much, really much appreciated! Cheers Jaime
  3. You could try dipping them in Alclad's Aqua Gloss. It usually improves brilliance and transparency. Cheers Jaime
  4. Thank you very much, Steve! Don't worry, the problem is mine: I can't help complicate my builds as much as possible... I must build one or two models purely OOB for a change (a box with no PE or resin in it). Cheers Jaime
  5. Excellent modelling job, Stuart! And the sea base just gives it that extra touch Cheers Jaime
  6. Just arrived: Valiant Wings Airframe Extra nÂș 10 - The Battle of Midway Looks good, as usual with publications from Valiant Wings. Cheers Jaime
  7. A good read of the instructions and good planning goes a long way toward a successful build! Cheers Jaime
  8. Rob @robgizlu, Rob @rob85, Michael @WildeSau75, @Murdo, @Horatio Gruntfuttock Thank you all for the very kind words, really much appreciated! Indeed I'm very pleased with the result Cheers Jaime
  9. Pete @Buzby061, Chris @bigbadbadge, Davey @DaveyGair, Andrew @Bear Paw , Djordje @djos, Richard @RMCS, @Doc72, Joachim @Spitfire31 Thank you all for your interest and very kind words! Much appreciated! I used the finest EZ-line availble. I just used the equivalent Gunze colours to those shown in the colour scheme, applied over Alclad Grey Primer (except the yellow, which had an intermediate matte white coat applied over the primer). I didn't do any pre- or post-shading or altered the colours for scale effect. I just took care, when taking the pictures, to get the correct white balance. I agree with you regarding Alclad's Flat: after trying several makes of so-called flat coats, I think Alcad's is the best and produces the most consistent results. I used my smartphone's camera in Pro Mode (a HTC U12+). I adjusted the white balance and exposure manually to get colours as close as possible to reality. Cheers Jaime
  10. @twinpin, @petetasker, @ijs302, @CedB Thank you very much! I used EZ-line and CA glue to rigging and control cables. The WIP shows more detail on this: Control cables for rudder, tail plane and ailerons Rigging I hope these links are helpful. Thank you very much Ced! I'm indeed quite happy with the result Cheers Jaime
  11. Stuart @Courageous, @Vinnie, Thank you very much! Much appreciated!
  12. @MikeR, @Heather Kay, @RidgeRunner, @giemme Thank you for your interest and kind words!
