  1. Meticulous work, such attention to detail and weathering. Amazing result Tim. Pete
  2. Outstanding result Roman. The large mottle is a sight to behold, just wish I could do it half as good as that. Pete
  3. Definitely looks the part Rich. Everything about it seems right, the colours, the sense of being well used and left in the sun a bit. . Pete
  4. Looks great in Israeli colours Dragon, very nice result.. I'm about to start the same kit but I'm going to do a French aircraft. Anything I should be looking out for in particular with the build? Pete I've noted the above for my build but will need to study a few photos I think to see the sit. Pete
  5. Looking great in Mexican markings and they have fitted very well considering they weren't meant for this kit. Pete
  6. Great build and paint job. Thats a beautifully finished Wirraway. Pete
  7. Looks good in overall metal, nice change from camo. Pete
  8. Fabulous job on the camouflage, the faded edges are very well done. Is the scheme from the box? Pete
  9. Nice work Miguel. I'm surprised Clint managed to make anything work on that aeroplane as he had such a strong American accent when thinking in Russian it must have struggled to understand him. Pete
  10. Fabulous use of the extra detailing sets, the overall finish you've achieved is so realistic, even down to the cockpit protective rails worn appearance. Great work. Pete
  11. Fantastic mottling, great looking end result. Pete
  12. Another cracker of a build Russ. I've always liked this aircraft ever since Airfix released it all those years ago. Pete
  13. An unusual and interesting design, thanks for the info about it. Great scratch building, you've captured the look of the real aircraft beautifully. Pete
  14. Beautiful job, the detail in the U/C bays and engines is just great. (Like the film industry, I think you should have had a disclaimer at the end of your intro, No rabbits were harmed in the making of this model ). Pete
  15. Great looking Viggen Nick.. I think they look the bees knees in the grey scheme with the big orange numbers. Pete
  16. Very nice indeed . The extra work you have put into the build has produced a little gem. I was lucky enough to get to work on these a few years back in Kingsville, Texas. As a result of the visit I've got a couple of kits of the gate guards in my stash to make. Pete
  17. Spectacular result Steve. I would have been hitting the eyedrops bottle hard after that one! . What's the base colour? Is that pale grey or white? Pete
  18. Very nice outcome. Your panel lining and dirty streaking technique is very effective. What method do you use if you don't mind me asking? Pete
  19. Excellent work, good to see a Heinkel in Hungarian colours. I have to say I think smoking that close to a fuel drum must contravene health and safety regulations! Pete
  20. Just a bit further on. The engine parts were assembled and superglued to the wing, again without the U/C units. These will all be added after the main parts are together and the filled areas sanded down. The ailerons and wing tips have also been added, Where the rear engine cowlings extend beyond the trailing edge there was a large joint to be filled. I used plastic card cut to conform to the required shape rather than using filler, this saves too much detail from being sanded away.
  21. Cracking result. Ive been considering getting one of these, after seeing yours I think I will indulge. Pete
  22. Considering the angst it generated during the build that's a mighty fine result. Looks great in North Korean markings. Pete
