  1. Bit of a departure from my normal aircraft/helicopter builds ... https://photos.app.goo.gl/qZNsQxHGye13a1R9A Straight out of the box - with Vallejo primer, Tamiya paints and Vallejo matt varnish. Quick build to be used as airbrush and masking practice. Turned out better than I thought though black as a PLW was probably a bit of a mistake ... mid-grey would have been better.
  2. You'll need to explain that one ...I'm clearly a bit slow ....
  3. https://photos.app.goo.gl/FpjGhCd37mHu9s5X6 Started this one about 6 months ago ... as a kit it proved pretty frustrating due to fit of the parts so progress was slow. Its only the fourth kit I've done with an airbrush so the finish isn't that great. Thinning Revell Aqua Colour to get good results seems to be a black art. Initially covered in white Vallejo primer and pre-shaded with Tamiya XF1 black. A slightly enthusiastic covering with the Revell Nato Olive green pretty much obliterated that! Lesson learned ... check , double check and check a

  5. Thanks for your comments. You're probably right on the panel lines. THe pre-shade and black PLW is a bit overkill. The build and the panel lines were something of an experiment - I'm not very accomplished with an airbrush and I only have a pot of black wash. Perhaps a mid or dark grey would have acheived a more subtle effect. Ian
  6. Not quite in the same league as most posters on here ... but here is my recently completed Vampire in 1/72 which turned better than most of my efforts. Kit goes together fairly well though I haven't filled a few seams as well as I could have done and I messed up some of the decals. Completed using Vallejo primer, Tamiya acrylics, Micro set / Sol and Mig Ammo black panel line wash. https://photos.app.goo.gl/DNEkva9VP5ybAUGYA
  7. I’m relatively new to the forum – heres my first w.i.p … though its more like a “nearly complete” Tamiya A10 in 1/48. Photos here … https://photos.app.goo.gl/dJHYeHcoip7QIDIC2 Just the remainder of the ordnance to complete and attach , then put the cockpit in the open position. It represents my first serious attempt at a model in some time, along with first use of a decent airbrush (H&S Ultra). As you can see I’m not in the same league as some on here … Its just a stock out the box build with no extras. Following assembly the model w
  8. Anyone know of a photoetch detail set (cockpit interior etc) for the Revell Apache in 1/48 ? I see Eduard do one for the Hasegawa kit - does it transfer to the Revell ?

    Afternoon ...

    Sorry about that - post edited to now include links to a Google Images location - along with my A10. https://photos.app.goo.gl/3SIXql9mZnqKRYPg1 https://photos.app.goo.gl/dJHYeHcoip7QIDIC2 Regards, Ian

    Afternoon ...

    Thanks ... it turned out ok, considering I had to use nail polish to strip the first coat of primer/paint. I really need to master pre shading and panel lines. I'm not in the same league as some I've seen here! I'm using a Harder&Steenbeck Ultra with the 0.2 nozzle/needle.

    Afternoon ...

    Afternoon all, Getting back to modelling after 20+years of other stuff. Wasn't much good then so hopefully I can't get worse. Mostly trying to build the best I can "out of the box" - no add-ons or scratch building. Still trying to get to grips with an airbrush. Primarily building military aircraft & helicopters in 1/72 or 1/48. Recently completed an Airfix 1/72 SAR Sea King and currently working on a Tamiya 1/48 A10 and a Revell 1/48 AH64 SeaKing ... https://photos.app.goo.gl/3SIXql9mZnqKRYPg1 Apologies for the ki
