  1. Hi Guys, This is my latest model.The aircraft built is a reproduction of the plane fled by Hptm. Wilhem Moritz during the defence of the matherland in July 1944. The building went on very smoothly without any particular issue a part from some issues to fit the canopy and stencils. The level of details is quite remarkable considering the small price for the kit.I painted the model by airbrush in most of the cases,adding a black preshadow on the undercarriage. I used Revell acrylics and Vallejo for the bare metal areas. For the weathering of the wheels, I used Tamiya weathering master. I hope you like it and I look forward to receiving your tips and comments. THANKS.
  2. Hi Guys, This is my latest project P47 551st FTS 1944 Maj Gen. William Kepner.The kit is a pure gem, I really enjoyed it..I have not found any problem at any stage.I had to fill in just a little gap between the canopy and fuselage. I painted the model using Revell acrylic colour and Vallejo aluminium colour for some details.I used Montex canopy mask and oil paint for creating some weathering effect on the undercarriage and wheels. I hope you like it and please give me your opinions and advices are both very important for me. THANKS
  3. Hi Bertie, For the pics 1 and 4 I used some filters trying to produce some kind effects (probably last time I do that). The others pics are as taken with my camera .I hope others don't have the same issues.
  4. Hi guys, This is my latest project, Spitfire F MK IX Eduard 1:48 Weekend Edition.The scheme I choose was the fighter flew by Irving F.Kennedy 249 Squadron Qrendi Malta July 1943. The kit is a very nice build, no issues to report.This is my second kit painted with airbrush, and I am satisfied of the results.I struggle to find reference pics for this airplane during ww2 thus I have to use a bit of imagination to create some weathering effects.As paint I used Revell acrylic.The only downside are the decals...too fragile. I hope you like it, and I can't wait for receiving your comments and advices. Thank you
  5. Hi guys, I am working on my last project a P47 scale 1:48.I wonder if any of you can help me to find some colour pics of this airplane during ww2 better if in digital format.It will be of great help for the painting and weathering process. Thank you
  6. Thank you everyone for your comments and support.
  7. Hi Guys, This is my last project Space Shuttle Discovery before 1998, Revell kit 1:144. The kit was a decent model, requiring some sanding work in certain area.Overall the model came together quite smoothly. This is my second model airbrushed and I am quite happy of the result achieved. The stencils are first class, no problem at all.I hope you like it and your comments are very appreciated. Thank you
  8. Hi guys, This is my first model painted using airbrush.I wanted to start this new adventure,with something not too challenging. After a bit of research, I picked this little kit from ICM. The building was quite simple, only a few parts were included.This submarine was the first example of elektroboote operational. I decided to follow the german scheme during the last year of the war .Even if only a little thing, I really enjoyed it. Soon, I am going to build another submarine as I am really fascinated by this subject.I hope you like it too, and any comments are always greatly appreciated.
  9. Hi BluesModeller, For the deck I used revell ocra acrylic adding engine stain Mig weathering enamel.
  10. Hi Guys, This is the latest project I have been working for the last month. The model has been a real pleasure, pure Tamiya quality. I didn't have any issue for building it.I choised the VMF-223 Marine corps camo, but I had issues with the stencils that literally broke in pieces during the application stage.I believe that the 30 years of the kit have made the stencils unusable.Fortunately, I had used some spares, I found in my secret drawer.This is probably my last project completely paintbrushed.I have just bought an airspray kit and all the necessary accessories for start a new chapter in this hobby.I used oils for producing weathering effects together with some enamel washes AK for engine and some undercarriage details.I hope you like it and I hope you find a bit of time to give me your opinions and tips.Thank you
  11. Hi guys I would like to progress on our hobby, buying a compressor for airspray my models. Can you give me some advice?my budget is not more of 150 pounds.I found this compressor on Amazon.What do you think about it?Does it worth a try? Fengda AS-186A Professional Airbrush Compressor/with Tank/Autostop 4Bar/Autostart 3Bar/Quiet/Oil-Free Thank you
  12. Thank you guys for your feedback.I normally build aircraft model but I really enjoyed this one.Next it will be a submarine, Xxiii u-boat 1:144 ICM.Crossing fingers it will come out fine.
  13. Hi guys this is my latest project.Bismark battleship in the Baltic Sea 1940-1941.The model in scale 1:700 didn't present any particular issue during the assembly stages.The instructions are not very clear in my opinion, maybe due to the small format.I hand painted the entire model using Revell and Vallejo acrylic colours .The weathering effects in the deck,starboard side and cannons was done using Mig enamel product.I really enjoyed this build,although,the scale represented for me a real challenge. I hope you like, and please feel free to give me your opinions and advices.Thank you.
