  1. Really nice!!! When will we see the military version? Cheers. Alex
  2. Thanks again! The earth is MIG pigments "Europe Earth". Alex
  3. Thank you! You tell the judges..!!! The oleo struts are covered with a thin strip of Bare Metal Foil, carefully stuck and nicely buffed! Always does the trick! Alex.
  4. Hello, this is a model from three years back, took part at the 35th IPMS Greece Nationals and won a Silver in Masters Category. I have used Eduard's BIG ED and resin wheels, Aires's beautiful resin Junkers Jumo 213 engine, Quickboost's resin propellers & resin MG151 barrels and Master's excellent turned brass antennas. Other than that, I have scratch built some detail inside the main and tail wheel wells, cut open the cockpit windows, opened the access hatch, cut open the ejector chutes for the underside MG151s and opened and scratch built the port side engine access panels. Colours are all Gunze according to their RLM range. Hope you like it, comments are most welcome! Alex.
  5. That's a pretty beast! Good job! What did you use for rigging (did you paint it)? Cheers Alex
  6. Thanks Hobo! Yes, the panel lines have received a black-burnt umber oil wash. I have also sprayed them with a highly thinned down mix of black and red brown. I'd like to do a NMF Nell in the future...too many models...so little time... A.
  7. Thank you Michael! Yes, I don't like the "tank" weathering effect on airplanes...it's just so wrong... Cheers Alex
  8. Hello, this is from 3 years back, very nice kit, classic Hasegawa quality. Used the Eduard photoetched set, Vector resin engines, Fine Molds and Mini World MGs, plus some minor scratchbuilding. Colours are all Gunze acrylics and some alclad for the metalics. All insignia is painted on, except for small Japanese print on the aft fuselage. Not the best of efforts, but I think worth looking. Hope you like it. Cheers Alex
  9. Fantastic subject! Great work on it! Is the cockpit scratch built or not? Thanks Alex
  10. Hello Malcom, these are the exact paints and mixes I have used on my Caproni: Giallo Mimetico: Tamiya XF-59+XF-3 (4:1) Verde Mimetico: Gunze H 309 Marrone Mimetico: Tamiya XF-10+ Gunze H463 (4:1) Grigio Mimetico: Gunze H 308 But you can also check this out: http://www.flyinglions.eu/colori-regia-aeronautica.html They give different paints, but it's worth a look. Cheers Alex
  11. Hi Hobo, thanks for your comment! I used Gunze mostly and one Tamiya. The airbrushes (two of them) I use are Badger 150 for all the boring stuff and the fantastic Badger Renegade Velocity (for the camo, yes!). Let me know if you want specific paints, I will look it up (I always forget, but I have taken notes) Cheers Alex
  12. Hi Dennis, thanks very-very much. I have replied to pm. Alex
  13. Hi Dennis, thanks for looking, I really appreciate it! Alex
  14. Hello, I have recently purchased the 1/48 Cutting Edge Interior and Floats resin sets from a friend, but no instructions came with them. Does anyone have the instructions and can scan or photograph them? It seems really hard to build without instructions. Thank you all in advance. Alex
