  1. Hi all, I completed this kit around the beginning of the year and along got round to photographing it now. I found the kit to be rather enjoyable as I did not have major problems with it. As for the painting this was the first that I attempted pre-shading and post-shading. I used my usual Vallejo model air colours with weathering done with a dark brown oil wash as well as some chalk pastel smoke stains. Constructive criticism is very much welcome!

    Academy 1/72 Tempest Mk V

    Hi all, Sorry for not posting for a while. Over the long weekend I was able to get a lot done First I prepared the model for decals and then applied them I was really impressed by Steve's technique for academy decals and it worked a treat After that was dry I started the weathering, I used one of the MiG oil brusher for the wash and I think it turned out fine In this photo the right wing has had its wash and the left wing hasn't. It was at this point I got a little to carried away and forgot to take photos but to sum it up, I masked the canopy, added some chipping and stains and finally a matte coat to finish it off. Thanks, Also what do I do when I'm done in a group build?

    Hi all, I apologise for not posting recently but I've quite a bit of progress since the last post. First of all I got the underside painted up and attempted some post shading as well, I'm sure how well it turned out but I kinda like it. After masking up the underside the next thing to do is the upper surface, first up is the ocean grey After that had dried I applied the masking for the dark green as well as respraying some pre shading lines I also went out based on @stevehnz's very helpful comments and got some Pascoes floor polish for the gloss varnish Next up is the varnish and decaling Thanks for checking in -Cam

    Thanks very much Steve, this is all very helpful for me I'm going to go out get some Pascoes stuff when I can. I was also wondering if it's good for dipping canopies into to make them nice and clear? I made some progress yesterday, I got the internals painted up and prepared them for brown wash Thanks for checking in -Cam

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments I'm contemplating getting the Xtradecal sheet because I've never had any good experiences with academy decals. The other day the airbrush nozzle finally turned up so I'll be carrying on with this build tomorrow -Cam

    Welcome aboard! Thanks I'll most likely be doing one of the box schemes however if that turns pear shaped I might get some aftermarket decals More progress today although not that much. I assembled the cockpit stuff but can't paint it yet due to broken airbrush nozzle Thanks for checking in -Cam

    Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk I

    Hi Col, I'll probably be doing one of the box schemes because I haven't got any after market decals at the moment. I'll most likely do the A scheme because of the interesting story behind with the aerial ramming that the pilot did against a Bf 109. -Cam

    Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk I

    Hi all, I finally got around to joining a group build for the first time. I'll be entering the only two Hawker aircraft I have in my stash; a 1/72 hurricane and a 1/48 hurricane. This build thread will focus on the 1/48 one. First of all the obligatory box shot and sprue shots Thanks for checking in -Cam
