  1. So having taken a break from decals I started on the Acrid missiles. Looking at some pictures on the web I liked how some of them looked decidedly worn with the metal lots of shades. So an opportunity to try something I've never done before. Bare Metal Foil. I have immense respect for the guys who are good at this. Mine is still a work in progress but I'm quite please with how its turning out.
  2. Bored of decals tonight So quick question. Look on the internet there seems to be different pain schemes on the Acrid Missiles so with white fins some with plain metal. Does it matter which I use???
  3. Thank you I'm still worrying I didn't tone it down enough. Hopefully the final varnish will calm it a little. Thanks That's actually the spare canopy that I'm using to protect the cockpit. The other one is all painted up ready to attach at the end. Thanks Thanks
  4. Back from my travels I decided to start applying decals. Once again I remember why I like WW2 subjects with a minimum of helpful stencils all over them Anyways progress so far.
  5. Thanks, second time I've tried it. First time was on a 1/48 Spitfire PR XIX so the size is so different. Be interesting to see how it looks after the 1000034334 decals are applied bring back ww2 subjects
  6. And all glossed up ready for decals before the company sends me to New York for all of 3 days
  7. Going to follow this one with great interest as its on my list to do. Although stuck in two minds between 1/32 or 1/48
  8. And a little more Grey added before I pack up for a few days with work in Holland. Probably not bad for me to take a pause for a few days anyway
  9. The gloss? Mr Color Clear Gloss UV
  10. Not too bad under a coat of gloss methinks
  11. I like that thought I'll give it a try
  12. I always find it difficult with this type of pain scheme whether enough is enough or I should keep going to blend it further. Thoughts and feedback appreciated.
  13. I never quite understood why more manufacturers don't do this. I get that the bulk of their business comes from people totally happy to build the kit as it is. But the amount of aftermarket companies suggests that for a lot of models there is a market for the kit manufacturer to create an upgrade kit (with canopy masks next time please). As for G Factor and SAC. Nothing against them but in this instance every penny I give AMK might help towards the next mould and based on the quality of this one I want more
