  1. I am a fan too. This is number 2 and I’m lucky enough to have the rare “heavily armed” version in the to do pile. I may have a pop at the single color post war French AF bird for that one and then throw everything at it. Regarding the randomness, some of the nicest effects I have achieved have been where I thought I totally ballsed something up with the wrong shade or whatever, then worked with it and finished with an effect that’s not half bad and catches the eye. Sometimes we need to work outside the box a bit. Just my two cents ( in familiar currency ).
  2. That’s a really good looking early model A4. Congrats, great job.
  3. Really impressive work. I have got to get me one or more of these!
  4. Thanks Nikola, I'm looking forward to taking my time and having a good look at both later. regards Rick
  5. True enough Joachim. I have come to realise that you can go lighter, darker, pretty much anything as long as you can blend it all in. Sometimes almost random colors give great visual interest if you can get away with it by tying it together.
  6. Thanks Faraway. The Eduard belts are amazing though these were the original etch brass, I think the newer steel ones are so much easier to work with.
  7. Thanks Nikola, no worries and thanks for your kind comments. I’m trying to get into more of the marbling style techniques that have come into vogue, to avoid the pitfalls of a quilted look. Both have their merits when done right though. This is an older build pre the newer techniques. Just wanted to give her some airtime on a lazy Sunday evening. cheers Rick
  8. Evening everyone, This is Tamiya’s excellent 1/48 Dornier Do335A Pfeil built sometime ago but still a nice build IMHO. Perhaps a little clean but I don’t like to revisit finished builds so she is what she is. I like the way the top color camouflage variations came out. Helped along with the excellent Eduard masking set and a set of late war belts. The cockpit is decent for an out of the box affair. Opinions welcome. Rick
  9. Thank you for your kind words and I totally take on board your comments re the exhaust. Looking back it’s the least convincing part of the build so I will definitely be trying your suggestion
  10. Thank you. The Jill is an awesome kit too. I also have a Grace, all three are top notch kits from Hasegawa
