  1. I’d be interested in building another RCAF Sabre
  2. Some progress on the tulip. The white part seems too thick so I may redo the lines and camo around that part. The Akan AK II Red looks and sprays great.
  3. Id be interested in this again. Have a 109 and a Mig I could probably pick from. Not sure I'll do another Hurricane lol.
  4. Master Model and they fit like a glove surprisingly.
  5. "Snattered Spitfire" Special Hobby 1/48 with resin weels, seat, brass barrels, and exhaust One of the few Irish planes that was received and flew with the 1st Irish Air Corp.
  6. " A.Tough Day in Burma" My brother in laws great grandfather flew this plane and I built this as a gift for him and thought what better time to enter a GB and share his story with you. Eduard 1:48 Spitfire Mk VIII with aftermarket one piece cowl, OOB PE, Ultracast wheels, and Brengun 500lb bomb with too many fiddly bits. A Spitfire Mk. VIII flown by Fg. Offr. Andrew Tough of No.155 Squadron RAF, Burma, 1944 They belly landed out of fuel after a ground attack mission. At 1125 F Sgt Wolstenholme led a section of four detailed to strafe rolling stock and
  7. Down to the wire and now the quest to find a display case and base for it. Still wish I knew the original aircraft' serial number but alas that may be lost to history. I tested out some sun fading techniques and they worked well in my eyes. Even if my iPads photos didn't show it very well. Finished this build with so much work that's been thrust my way. Fortunate for me during this time. Even if its the railroad. I really would prefer this in my display case as I feel its one of my better works lately. Even if a bit rushed. In person the shades and colours see
  8. Here's a quick pic. Some inspiration to finish the build before midnight. All that really remains is the mirrors and handhold for the cockpit frame. Ill get er done!
  9. Did some reddish washes on the Spit. Going to do some chipping and scratching tonight and seal it with a flat coat. Then all I need to do is the exhaust stains. I’ll be done tomorrow
  10. Decaling complete aside from the ones on the inside of the door. Completed the exhaust and installed the assembly and have the top cowling glued on. To me Eduard really made this bit overly complicated and they really didn’t need to. I had to do a little trimming to get it to mate up correctly with the resin cowl. I need to touch up a couple spots with paint and then I will be moving on to weathering, I’ve been told to beat it up. Glad I have the extra week.
  11. Stencilling will be next. The W was just a tiny bit bigger than the other letters but its really hard to tell. Not sure how much weathering I will add as that's up to the brother in law and he will have to get back to me on it. I kept the serial number for the DG R Spitfire as I cant find this ones and he also flew the spitfire with these serial numbers.
  12. Thank you all for that information. I'm working on the tulip noseart. Decided to use the kit decals as a framework. Then my intention is to mask for white and then mask for red and voila it should come out great...at least I hope so.
  13. I’m sure I have something Russian with skis.
