  1. Here's my IRC Otter and the WiP is here... This was a fun GB. I was happy to build this kit. Not the best kit--an old mould, tough plastic, rudimentary details. The decals were large and very thin which isn't always the best combination. Gently and slowly is the name of the game. Still, I hammered the kit into the right kind of shape. 75cm Rule applies. Many thanks to the Mods for their hard work! There really are some excellent builds in this GB. --John
  2. All done! I gave it some light dusting of exhaust and concrete tone...added the EZ Line radio wires, also added some plastic card dorsal radio/radar fins. Now, I know these things are often times very clean and shiny. Mine is depicted as being in use in dusty, windy, hot Afghanistan (or Algeria)...So it hasn't been hosed down yet... And, finished... I'll load the rest into the gallery later this evening. Thank you all for a fun GB. I was happy to participate. --John
  3. Approaching the deadline...the 8th, I think. Gotta get this off the bench! Decals on, wheels on. Touch up and satin varnish to go, then some light weathering. A white aircraft is difficult to photograph with one's phone. --John
  4. Well, and I had help from the plumber as well, so that disqualifies me right from the get go! I am back at the bench, by the way, so you should see some progress soon.
  5. Thanks Col. I am in a flurry of activity these days, none of it modelling. I think this weekend I might be back at it for a few weeks. House renovations, etc...eats my energy. It's time for decals I think.
  6. Thanks for the link @vppelt68. That is a very grubby looking 109. I think the supplied decal has some faint printing that replicates some of the 'under markings'.
  7. Some inside bits. I am not sure how much energy I will give to the scratch building aspect of this aircraft. This is what I built today... A full-scale, working model of a solar water heater... And some cockpit bits...much smaller. --John
  8. Not to worry @Torbjorn. I knew what you meant. I think this aircraft is quite famous for flying in one direction only-V-P has mentioned! Speaking of which...Some touch up will be needed around the canopy, and I need to add a little grey violet to where the fuselage roundel will sit. --John
  9. The RLM70 went on, then I remasked for the red tail and the yellow wing tips and the underside of the nose. Not bad. The yellow (RLM04) covered pretty well without looking too thick. I like the muted effect. And with the canopy uncovered I can see some touchup spots. No big deal. --John
  10. It'll be covered with the decal, so to paint it seems pointless. I didn't have any issues wit the PE pieces. Snug, but it fit well.
  11. Gotta get a move on with this one. I'll tidy up the paint tonight and get the wheels and landing gear painted.
  12. Ok...I really have to out some fire into my model building. I have become so distracted by other, less important, projects that days go by and I have done nothing! Here is the Simon with some primer. I will work on the interior this evening I have some screenshots of some excellent scratchbuilding somewhere so I use that as a guide. I will also take some time and spruce up the Otter... --John
