  1. Thanks guys, It took 7 or 8 well separated steps of 30 minutes to cover the fuselage, engines and tails. Best wishes for the new year, Manu.
  2. Thanks a lot guys , The wavy pattern is painted with a thin brush and Akan RLM 82 mixed with AK driyng retarder. This kit is not easy to build, the engine bays don't fit well the wings, and the wings don't fit well the cell. Plus, there is no precise location and no "tenons" for the radar antenna on the nose of the plane. Manu.
  3. Hi guys, here is my latest build, the Messerschmitt BF 110 G 4 in 1/48 from Eduard. The kit is very well detailed but not so easy to build. This plane is from the 6./NJG 101 captured on the airfield of Fritzlar in 1945. The camouflage was very exciting to paint. Hope you like it. Cheers, Manu.
  4. Thanks Francis. The antenna is a photo etched part from the box. to Darryl : the offset wheels is not an option offered by Dragon.
  5. Thanks guys, I will continue to build AFV models, I like that, but planes are still my favourite subject. Manu.
  6. Hi guys, let me present you my first attempt as an AFV modeler. I usually build planes model kits. I really enjoyed to build, paint and weather that Puma. Merry Christmas, Manu.
  7. Thanks Bill. The Y wing is a space ship from "Star Wars". Cheers, Manu.
  8. Thanks mate, i mainly used airbrush and felt tip pens to weather the metal. Cheers, MAnu.
  9. Thanks guys, I didn't varnish the bare metal but maybe i will try the AK gauzy agent next time to be abble to use washes diluted with white spirit. The weathering is made with airbrush and with felt tip pens. Cheers, Manu.
  10. Hi guys, here is my latest build, the excellent Eduard Spitifire Mk IX in 1/48. I've choosen that camo beacause i wanted to test the AK Xtrem metal. The WIP is here : Thanks for watching, Cheers, Manu.
  11. Thanks Christer, The spit is finished. A little bit of weathering... ... and it's done. Cheers, Manu.
