  1. Hello There, Here is my last realization, assembled in 4 days, that I absolutely wanted to be completed before 2022, a 1/48 Eduard Focke-Wulf Fw-190 F8. The model is the 2013 edition, excruciatingly difficult to put together without horrible adjustments. The two-component putty has been taken out to fill some gaps. But OK, otherwise the painting went well, and I'm pretty happy with the result. The building : The pics That's it my friends Have a nice day and best regards Vincent
  2. Hi everyone, Here is a building that I completed in 4 days, and whose objective was to complete it before 2022. And I finished it 4 hours before the deadline. I was a bit lazy to post the pictures and write an English text, so I'm only posting it to you now, please excuse me For the kit, I choose an old model, who was in my stach since 3 years. The old and terrible kit of the Fw 190 F-8 from Eduard, who has been producted in 2013. Engraving and casting are fine, but there is a lot of adjustment to be made, and it took a lot of putty (see putty) to fill in the holes, and also a lot of sanding (I hate doing this) So here the box, and for the version, I choose an aircraft from the SG 19 with 30mm gun pods We start with the cockpit, as usual, which is quite poor, but hey, once in the fuselage, we see nothing Let's go with the paint using XF-63 Then highlights adding XF-66 We glue the pe, a few scratches with a silver pencil, a juice and earth-colored pigments, and voila Then, I build the wings Crossing of the aircraft, which required A LOT OF adjustments and sanding (you can see all the dust) . Note that we can represent the aircraft with the hoods open, but this will not be the case for this model. A few more details and we can move on to painting (the plane comes out of a wash to remove all the plastic dust) the beast is prepared for painting Since the aircraft was one of the end of the war, very worn, it receives a layer of aluminum, then areas are preserved with Maskol The classic pre-shading in black with marbling in white SG 10 hood ring is painted with Tamiya yellow The underside of the aircraft as well as the fin (cannibalized to another aircraft) are painted in RLM 76 (using Gunze) Then comes the turn of the RLM 83, applied randomly to give a wear effect The tail receives camouflage in RLM 75 and 74 Painting the walls towards the engine in black Personally, I am very happy with this camouflage Decals session (with very few stencils, which disappeared under the camouflage applied on the field The patina is made with oil paints and different pigments The exhaust traces are made with oil paints also Then we glue the last details (the landing gears were a moment of suffering), a layer of matt varnish and we can declare the model finished Now, let's build a small base for this Fw, with a portion of a field; To begin with, the base will be made of insulating foam in a balsa frame. The ground, on the other hand, is clay Das Pronto the earth is a mixture of white glue, water, sand and soil from the garden. The mixture should be quite thick (not too thick either), then applied in a not too thick layer on the base. Then, in order to speed up the drying, I apply earth and small pebbles, by pinching, this and the We take out the static grass applicator and we transform this land into a meadow A coat of Primer to start, brown would be ideal, but I only had black As an undercoat, in order to give a slightly dry appearance to the grass, we apply XF-60 (oh yes, we still don't start painting the grass and then the earth, it's easier) The grass is a mixture of XF-26, XF-3 and XF-4 Some places are lightened (randomly) by adding more yellow to the base mixture You can paint the earth, with XF-55 plus XF-52 and XF-60 Stones and small details are used with a brush And finally, we apply various washes on the entire base, and the frame is painted in matt black I create a label with Word, and we can declare the model as a whole, completely completed That's all for me, See you soon for other builds, Vincent

  4. Hello folk, Taking advantage of a few free moments here and there, I offer you the latest advances on the Tiger 1 To begin with, I installed the mud guards, soldering some, and damaging them with pliers. For splinters and shrapnel holes, I use the point of a compass, this is the best way Then comes a step that I was a little afraid of, the installation of the spare tracks on the turret, but in the end everything went well, and I chose to glue them before painting, because afterwards, I risked damaging the work And finally, some overall photos; the wheels were provisionally installed for the installation of the friul tracks. Then, after some hours of work, the friul tracks Ladies & Gentlemen I then continued the installation of the photoetch, in particular the hooks / locks of the turret box, which gave me a lot of trouble. I also made some additional details, by adding a sort of basket on the left side of the trunk, which will contain the tools, and on the other side (we can't see it in this picture), the fire extinguisher. These ideas come from several photos of machines engaged in Kursk, modifications carried out by the campaign workshops, but which bring a touch of originality. Now let's take a look at the parcel shelf and its parts, because such small details catch the eye. A Sturmgewehr 44, dropped off near the turret hatch. In the event of an evacuation, the crew has enough to defend themselves, and the same for the Panzerfauts, the fight continues as long as we can still fight. The jerrycan was a bit compulsory, and to give the idea of an intense fight, shells of 8.8. I plan to drop more on the ground. And one last photo of the front, where I fixed the Bosch headlight That's all for the moment, Have a good day Vincent

  6. Thanks ! the methode comes from Uncle NightShift on Youtube Thank you ! And thank you for the video! I have an article about this Tiger, froma french Magazine, Batailles & Blindés
  7. Thank you mate ! Yeah, we can see a lot of damaged on historical pictures Hey Darryl, really thank you for your comment! It's really kind from you!! Thank you!
  8. Hi guys, I hadn't seen this post, and from what I understand it's kind of a Group Build for Tiger 1 ...? I started a Tiger 1 awhile ago so I'll post the build here as well; As you know, I'm working on a U-Boat diorama, but that did not prevent me from making some parallel assemblies, to clear my mind. Well once again, I'm deviating from the sub to build a land monster, arguably the best-known WWII tank, and the most feared among Allied and Red tankers, he left his mark in the battlefield, but also in the minds of model makers, the star of the Panzer, I named the classic, but beautiful, PanzerKampfwagen VI Tiger 1 Ausf. E, referred to as Sd.Kfz.181, better known as Tiger 1. A legend say that you are a real model maker only when you have build a Tiger 1 at least once in your life. For my part, this will be the second, I had built two years ago, on an other forum. But this time friends, we are leaving the scorching and inhospitable sands of Tunisia (it was an African Tiger) to go into the German countryside around Berlin at the end of April 1945. I have decided to build a Tiger 1 of the Panzer Division Müncheberg . A unit mixing the best and the worst, and using vehicles of training or coming out of repair. this unit has shown all the colors to the Soviet tankers. It must be said that part of the crews came from the Kummersdorf test center, so soldiers who knew their stuff. My Tiger will be pictured during one of the unit's last engagement around Berlin, to a farm, ready to do battle with the tank commander with binoculars in hand. It must be said that at the end of the war, the Communist tanks gave Panzer crews a hard time. Russian tankers have become seasoned veterans, the T-34s are now armed with an 85mm cannon, and the KV-1 has given way to Joseph Stalin 2, armed with a terrible 122mm cannon, which even if it lack of precision, is a danger to any tank, except the Tiger 2, which holds the dragee high, led by the crop of the PanzerWaffe. Anyway, here's a little excerpt from Batailles et Blindés magazine which sums up the engagement; April 16, 1945, on Reichtrass 1; "The I./Panzer-Regiment" Müncheberg "deploys 10 Tiger 1 and 10 Panthers in refused echelon on either side of the road, just behind the main ditch. Around 8 o'clock, when the Russian tanks emerge from the mist, Zobel's tankers (Major Horst Zobel) have a blast and fire from 1 km away: the first 20 shots hit the mark. This is what it costs to rub shoulders with the Kumersdorf instructors! The Soviets insist and lose between 50 and 60 tanks ". Regarding the model, I had a little pleasure, with the classic Tamiya kit, and some additions, namely a set of PE VoyagerModel, an Aber metal barrel, AFV club brass bushes, a Alpine figurine, and Friul caterpillars, which have not yet arrived. In addition, I bought something to make the Zimmerit ), as well that a soldering iron for the mudguards, in short, all my birthday money was spent there. For the camouflage, I choose this one Now, let's have some fun shall we? First, the turret and the hull are assembled, and we take the opportunity to replace the plastic barrel with an Aber reference. Then, to reinforce the foundry appearance on the tank, the walls are textured with putty, then more or less sanded according to the desired effect It's time to attack the zimmerit, using two-component tamiya putty, a metal wheel to print the patterns, talcum powder to keep the putty from sticking to your hands and water to make it sticky. After some hard times... (it's my first zimmerit...) Then while waiting for everything to dry, I assemble the Alpine figure of the tank commander, which is very beautiful. I still prepared the wheels, taking care to use the rubber band as desired Regarding shell impacts, too often, we see simple holes, not even to scale, made with a wick, and nothing more, while if we study photos of shells that did not penetrate the armor, we can notice that the periphery of the impact has changed color (that's not the question for the moment), but also that there has been a displacement of matter because of the kinetic energy .... First, I start by creating the impacts, using various drills, which are the 1/35 versions of the 122, 85 and 76 mm guns, plus the impacts of the dreaded Russian anti-tank rifle PTRD 41. After having drilled the holes in the barrels. impacts, use tamiya glue to clean the dust To simulate the white-heated material, we will fill the hole with putty (tamiya, ak, etc., it just has to be very malleable), taking care not to put too much. The amount of Putty must match the amount of metal replacing the hole And finally, we push in the impact the back of a brush, rounded, to simulate the shell. You can turn the brush a little to bring out the material. And for smaller impacts, we use objects with round ends, and toothpicks of different calibers. And after this step, take care with the cutter, to remove a little of the material around the shell, because there should not be too much, otherwise it loses realism The end result, we end up with a Tiger having suffered a lot of damage following the relentless attacks of the Russians. And according to the theater of operations, do not hesitate to mark the tank with impacts, the testimonies of German tankers exposed to heavy fire, fighting 1 against 5 at the end of the war are not lacking, to convince you. That's it for today guys, Have a nice day Vincent
  9. Woooo, it's really beautiful ! Just with the photoetch and no paints, it's already amazing ! Keep going !!
  10. Outstanding job man! Congrats!! Wich paints did you use for the camo? Can I have the references please
  11. Hello there, it's been a while, hasn't it? 4 months (almost 5) to take pictures, I agree, it deserves a penance, but what do you want, I dragged my a** (for no valid reason ...) because I am a slacker ... But be assured, your patience will be rewarded, since finally, here are the final photos of the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63) from Trumpeter at 1/350. It was my photographer friend who installed all the white background and the light for me and I took the photos, with various lighting; treat yourself; And just for the fun Honestly, I am very happy to have finished this assembly and to be able to have this finished model in my room! I didn't think that one day I would be able to ride this kind of thing (ok, now I'm clam down), but anyway, I hope you had fun following this building as much as I have. had to build it, See you soon for the U-Boot, Vincent
  12. alut everyone, Here is the last born to come out of my workshop(in realkity, it has been complted in march 2021), a 1/48 Spitfire HF Mk VIII from Eduard, . I wanted to build this model for a while now, the box art made me want to. The painting is done with AK Real Color references, and the patina with oil paint and pigments. It is a very good model, without flaws, apart from a few joints to fill up here and there, and decals really too thick. You will find the assembly here: https://romandiemaquettisme.forumgratuit.ch/t401-supermarine-spitfire-hf-mk-viii-eduard-1-48 Places with pictures, of, to my taste, is one of my most successful planes! It seems that it is traditional to drink a whiskey when completing a Spit, so Slaìnte (I like my Whisky with ice, don't kill me please XD) That's all for today guys, Have a nice day and best regards Vincent
