  1. See, it's all going swimmingly. Looking good from here. Cheers, Alistair
  2. I'm sorry Craig but the pictures were not suitable for a family friendly forum. I'll get it eventually. Cheers, Alistair
  3. Thanks Mark, Oh I'll get there it might take a few attempts until I learn the tricks to get it done. Cheers, Alistair
  4. Thanks Chris, I'm not used to such close up work with the airbrush. Just needs practice. Cheers, Alistair
  5. Small update. I tried today to freehand the camo and Oh Dear Bod I did not like the finish. I had missed bits and tide marks. So, long story short. It's been stripped back and I will start again. Cheers, Alistair
  6. Thanks Simon, I did the same thing when painting the cowling on the Vega and as the tyres were separate from the hubs figured it might work on them too. Cheers, Alistair
  7. Nick away young man. I may have borrowed the idea from elsewhere. I honestly can't remember but I do know that it's a great way of recycling the packing peanuts you get with a ColourCoats delivery. Cheers, Alistair
  8. Thanks Adrian, From the photos of your build I thought you had done that. I figured it was something to do with the bombs but to have it clarified is great. Cheers, Alistair
  9. Some primer has been flung about. Followed by Colourcoats AMT-7 A quick question for anyone who can tell me. On the Starboard wing root there is a clear part to go in. Should this be clear or painted. I've searched the net and can't find any pictures that are sufficiently clear to see properly. Thanks for looking, Cheers, Alistair
  10. After a light weathering and a satin coat. The flaps have been sprayed yellow. The tail wheel, trolley, landing skid and wheels lightly weathered with the skid dry fitted to the trolley. Once the yellow is dried and clear coated I'll get the RLM 02 on the underside. The satin coat is drying on the main fuselage and once it's dry I'll pop the canopy off and get on with the armoured screen, compass and photoetch that's still to go in. After that there are the flaps, flap indicators and the IFF thingy on the underside to fit. Getting there I think. Thanks for looking, Cheers, Alistair
  11. Nice brush work yet again. I really don't know how you do it. Itwould fill me with terror. Cheers, Alistair
  12. It's OK I knew from the authors name it would be a comic. Just picked up a digital copy of the full series. Cheers, Alistair
  13. Thanks, I have heard the Sabaton song but as my music tastes are firmly grounded in the seventies it may take a little while to grow on me. I'll give them a hearing in the hope that it's a slow burn and I will appreciate it more. This worked for me with an album I bought in 1977 and hated on first listen. I didn't give it a relisten until the early 2000's and now it's one of my favourites. That album was "Animals". I never really give up on music. Cheers, Alistair
  14. Welcome Sir, I know that Vienna was as full of spies as Berlin at one time. I would imagine that the Soviets influenced a bit of the language. Cheers, Alistair
  15. Thanks Chris I think you may be right. Cheers, Alistair Thanks for the info and welcome aboard. Cheers, Alistair
  16. Thanks Mark, I am fully aware of just how ham-fisted I am. I just had a quick look at Wikipedia and they were used. One was credited with downing a Lockheed starfire. The attacks were nicknamed "Bedcheck Charlie" and I'm kind of wondering if this was the inspiration for the "5 O'Clock Charlie" episode of M*A*S*H. Cheers, Alistair
  17. Thanks very much, I do intend to do this as a Night Witches version. I didn't know anything about the use in the Korean War though. Thanks for that and now shoots off to find out about that. Cheers, Alistair
  18. I have done some seam work and some gluing on this. And also some seriously small fiddly bits. Please don't breathe too hard at the moment. Who wants to bet that I'll end up knocking something off. One wee tip for anyone building this later. Be very very careful of the small flash of tail that's attached to the fuselage piece. It is extremely fragile. Go on ask me how I know. Not much of an update. Apologies. Thanks for looking, Cheers, Alistair
  19. This only took 2 hours. Less than I thought it would. All have been hit with softener and will be allowed to dry overnight. Thanks for looking, Cheers, Alistair
  20. At least it's going with grey not cream. That way you don't have to explain anything. Cheers, Alistair (not stirring at all)
  21. The detail is quite beautiful. It's really surprising what they have packed into this one. Cheers, Alistair
  22. As is so often the case with your modelling, you are overly critical of your own stellar work. Cheers, Alistair
