  1. Thank you for that, sounds like you have an amazing time ahead of you. Cheers Dennis
  2. Now that is an interesting photograph, where is it and any details on the aircraft ? Cheers Dennis
  3. Shocker, those decals are awful, masking off will be a pain but worth it in the long run, I am useless with even good quality decals so I usually use masks and paint markings. Cheers Dennis
  4. I always remove masks as soon as possible, firstly because I want to see the finished result and I am impatient and secondly I do not want the paint to harden and be pulled off when I remove the masks. When I paint the bare plastic first I leave the masks on right until I am happy with the paint finish but before airbrushing the matt or silk coat. Gloss finish is due to Xtracolor paints not varnish Cheers Dennis
  5. Beautiful job, I really like the WW2 French camouflage and colours, though pre Vichy is my favourite period, the kit is not the easiest of build but you have made a cracking job of it. Cheers Dennis
  6. Beautiful looking Spitfire. Cheers Dennis
  7. spitfire


    Glad to hear it as we are off on a coach trip there next week. Cheers Denbnis
  8. That is really impressive, great build and a fantastic finish, I've never built a model P38, I tried to build a 1/32 scale Revel P38 once and gave up, maybe it's time to give it another shot. Cheers Dennis
  9. I have not built the Paragon XIV conversion but did build their XII and VIII conversions and they are very good, the base kit I used was the Hasegawa V. I used a Warbird conversion for the XIV again using the Hasegawa V as a base kit, though there was not much left of it in the end. Cheers Dennis
  10. Either way will work, airbrush the red then apply the masks and then the camouflage, for my MiG 3 I did the camouflage first and then the red stars, using Montex masks and enamel paint. But I would probably do it the other way around now. More info here https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/54562-trumpeter-mig-3-build-back-to-plastic/ Cheers Dennis
  11. This strangely interests me as I bought an Airfix Rotodyne when I was a sprog on holiday in North Wales, this was in the days when the kit was bought and built straight away, no paint involved. However sadly I never got to build it as a fuselage half was missing, so it will be interesting to watch the build. Cheers Dennis
  12. Now that you mention it, yes I am fond of one particular aircraft. Cheers Dennis
  13. Great looking Spitfire, I do have a thing for them and am fond of the desert scheme, it would be great if you could give us some details on the build, problems, paint etc. Nice Job Cheers Dennis
