  1. Thanks gents, much appreciated! Guided tours? Usually Friday nights.
  2. These are just discs punched from a self-adhesive tape and painted accordingly. Cheers, Libor
  3. To David H: I think I showed it once here on BM, but if you asked:-) Here is part of my display cases some years ago, now they are more crowded... Cheers Libor
  4. Hi fellow britmodellers, this is my recent Airfix Beaufort project that eventually turned up into a minor conversion to Mk.IA version. Whilst most of the alternative parts were already included in the kit, some extra bits had to be added on my own either as scratch built items or aftermarkets, Markings comes from Xtradecal sheet for DD959 of 217.sq and the kit was painted with Gunze Aqueous and AK Real Colors. Cheers Libor
  5. Thanks for comments chaps! I think the all those opinions are exactly what the modelling is all about, does not matter if you are an active modeler or just a psycho nitpicker that never built a kit. Personally, I prefer the 'visual' aspect of the kit hence my preference for Hasegawa kits still prevails. Cheers and take care, Libor
  6. This time the camo was airbrushed via Blu-Tack pieces as I felt the transitions should be more sharper. The paint mixtures were approx 3:1 in favour of the thinner. I use Iwata HP-BH with built-in micro air pressure valve. Thanks for buying those books and I’m glad you like them! Cheers Libor
  7. Hi Mike, I hope so, but it is a question for publisher:-) Thanks everyone for kind comments! Cheers Libor
  8. Hi folks, this is yet another night fighter kit I built this year. Basically, the Hasegawa kit OOB with few extras (OWL decals, AML nose, Airone Hobby fabric masks) and couple of scratch built items (opened canopy and front entry hatch). The MM 850 served with 68.squadron, where its 'B' flight was formed of Czechoslovak airmen. On the night 7th October 1943 the crew P/O Šerhant / F/Sgt Nečas shot down a Do 217 off Yarmouth, while the other crew damaged a Ju 88 few months earlier. Cheers Libor
  9. Hi Patrick, the letters were printed on a transparent decal sheet (I think it was made by Propagtem) on regular office laser printer. The letters were then over sprayed with gloss varnish in order to give them some protection as the laser printed items may be more sensitive whilst handling them on the kit's surface, and eventually I trimmed them out of the sheet. Cheers Libor
  10. Hi fellow modelers, This is a tribute build dedicated to one of our club member, Mr. Zdeněk Bedřich, former Czechoslovak Airlines and sports pilot, great modeler and fellow, who passed away in 2014. On 12th October 1960 he set up the world speed record whilst flying this Let C-11 on closed circuits (3km and 15-25km) of 464 km/h in the trainers category, which lasted for several years and it is still valid up to now on the national level. The kit of the Let C-11 comes from RS Model and it was further enhanced with Brengun etched and Rob Taurus vacformed canopy. The civil registration OK-KIK was designed and printed on a laser printer by my fellow David Koktavý. The kit was painted with Gunze Aqueous paints in a light grey color according to Mr.Bedřich memories. Cheers, Libor
  11. Everyone, I thought I may ask if anyone is able to comment on the color scheme of the DD959 "Q" of 217.squadron, which is usually described as Temperate Sea Scheme (e.g. Xtradecal sheet), while on the IWM picture I can see much lighter colors which rather remind DE/MS with Azure Blue or Sky underneath, probably as a result of local repainting. Shouldn't the TSS scheme look more darker on the picture, or perhaps this is a orthochromatic material where the colors are a bit shifted? Thanks for any comments, Libor
  12. Thanks Alex! Honestly I have no clue at the moment, please ask Mark P. @Valiant Wings. Cheers Libor
