  1. Great job. Last two days I started to think about old mat aluminium surface and I can see it in your model. Regards!
  2. Here is original photo which I used to make it's model _IGP1344 by Sebastian Lachowicz, on Flickr
  3. Thank You for all good words. I didn't imagine that my model will be so compliment. It was only training in weathering, because my previous model looked like dirty toy, not miniature of weathered plane. Making this model I used first time chipping effect technique with MIG chipping fluid. I used it between paint layers. First layer was Vallejo aluminium silver, next gloss varnish (X-22). Next I cover all surface with chipping fluid. There was some wrong, becuse this layer was too thick. Next layer was primer color - Tamiya XF-4 and I made first scratching. Next layer were camouflage colours and again chipping fluid. On chipping fluid layer I repeated camouflage colors but little lighter and I scratched these layers. It made effect of different thickness of paint layer and made additional effect on surface. After taht I cover everything again with gloss. On this layer I used oil paints - mixing black, white and brown to make different fluid leaks on fuselage and wings. I made it several times, and tapped it with brush and ear stick and rub it with paper towel. When I decided that effect is good enough, I cover everything again with gloss. At this moment I made classic wash with dark gray oil paint.
  4. That's end of my struggling with Corsair. My goal was to make model based on the workshop more experienced modeller and based on original photo. I realized that as good as I could. There are difficult to make signs of exploatation, scratch, dirt, stains of fluids. It is not perfect but I think much better than in my previous model. Model represents Corsair MkII JT260 on board HMS "Unicorn". There is some error in my side, because I used revell's model which represents Corsair manufactured by Goodyer FG-1D - in british markings MkIV. Differences beetwen versions are another propeller, with slimmer blades, no air inlets on fuselage. Also, model is not perfect too. There are different shape lower surface of wing flaps, they are too short, too long engine cooling flaps. In engine section engine cowling are too short and mismatched shape of that, cooling flaps and upper part of fuselage. To make model I used eduard's photoetched parts and techmod's decals. Numbers on fuselage are painted by template masks.
  5. Almost finished. There are some mistakes. The propeller is incorrect, becauseI used F4U-1D model to make Corsair MkII- F4U-1A. There are some unplanned dirt and I haven't ideas for undersurface. Also I show You my firs Corsair which I made two years ago.
  6. Ok. I prepared new masks. I think it's a little bit better. Also, I made wash and more dirt and streaks by oil paints. Next step it will be warnish on upper surfaces. Next I will take care on bottom surface.
  7. I made next steps with corsair. I made "sidewalk" on the wings and scratch it. Next, I made some dirt using oil paints for artists and prepare template for roundels on fuselage and wings and at this moment I was pleased with effects. At next step I used salt technique and it made a disaster. I'm not happy with dots, spots and stains on the fuselage. I will try to paint it and make effect again. Also, I have to make new template for markings, because it is very distorted now. If you have some ideas to help, describe that please.
  8. Good work. Consequently, step by step, without chaotic airbrush spraying. Is it possible to see original plane photo? I can't see photos in first post.
  9. Continue with chipping. Beetwen first and second layer of camouflage, I covered surface with MIG chipping fluid. Next I put some water on surface and rub with brush. It makes quite good effect. In some places I used brush moistened in Vallejo thinner, which react gently with gunze paint.
  10. Thank You for all good words. This model is for weathering training. To take bigger care about details I will use another, better model i.e. tamiya. I found few mistakes in this model. First - cooling flaps are too long, flaps have different shape in comparing to drawings, and there are missing fabric grooving on the wing ends. Also I had a little trouble with matching cowling at the top of fuselage and engine. Anyway, model is quite good, much better than old heller's/smer corsair.
  11. Hello! I start to build characteristic model of Corsair. I found one photo and advanced workshop on polish forum. I try to make some of that. Revell's model is quite detailed, but parts are not very good mismatched. Model is used to try make advanced weathering. I place some photos below. I finished at painting camouflage and preapring to make dirt, oil and surface scratch.
  12. Hello Dennis.Good to hear you! I think your translated polish is better than my english . It's amazing about your uncle. Do you know that "kujawiak" - it is name of people living in region called "kujawy" - I lived over fifteen years in city named Inowroclaw - some kind of capital of western kujawy. Now I live about fifteen miles from Inowroclaw. I prepare some portfolio with my models soon.
  13. Hello! I'm Sebastian, I'm 42 y.o. , I live in Poland. I have started modelling oafter almost 20-year break. I'm focused on wwII fighters, my favorite plane is spitfire. For some time I place my portfolio here. Greetings to everybody.
