  1. Hi all, hope you're well. Hoping to join with this stalled build if that's possible. That would be eggscellent. Hasegawa_Egg_F_14 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Cheers, Dermot
  2. Wow. Someone should pay you to write a book on painting and weathering. Your work is stunning. Dermot
  3. Thanks all. Masking tape off and a couple of areas will need a tidy up but happy with that! Hasegawa_F-14_Tomcat_1_72_12 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr All the best, Dermot
  4. Thanks all and some more done on this one. Fuselage joined up.. The fit of the front to the main section was less than great. Hasegawa_F-14_Tomcat_1_72_4 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr And intakes added. I found these a bear to fit, especially where they met the engines. Not sure what the issue was....oh well. Hasegawa_F-14_Tomcat_1_72_5 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Primed in Halfords White Plastic primer. Boarding ladder/steps masked off with Maskol. Hasegawa_F-14_Tomcat_1_72_6 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr I hand painted the airbrake inners but wasn't happy the finish so masked and sprayed them instead. The bottom then got two coats of Mr Hobby Light Ghost Grey Hasegawa_F-14_Tomcat_1_72_7 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Then on to the top. This got two light coats of Mr Hobby Dark Ghost Grey - maybe it's me but I thought it should be more grey/less blue than that? Hasegawa_F-14_Tomcat_1_72_8 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Masked again and then hit with a homemade brew of Air Superiority Blue - this was mostly XF-2 White with some drops of XF-8 Blue. I tacked on the tails so I could carry over the splinter masking on to them. Hasegawa_F-14_Tomcat_1_72_9 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Masked again (!) for another homebrew mix of Aggressor Blue - this was equal parts XF-8 and XF2 with some drops of XF-60 Dark Yellow. Once it's all dry, will see how we got on! Hasegawa_F-14_Tomcat_1_72_11 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Thanks for looking. Happy modelling. Dermot
  5. Thanks everyone. Wheels all added but the plastic vinyl tracks wouldn't take to any glue I had here.. Out with the trusty Mk1 Scale Track Adhesive Precision Link Emergency Replacement or S-T-A-P-L-E-R as it's also known. Trumpeter_ Strv_103C_ (18) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr And then hidden with the side fuel cans! Trumpeter_ Strv_103C_ (19) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Wash and weathering next. All the best, Dermot
  6. Cheers Pete. If it helps, I had to trim back this part on both sides to make the door clear part (and main door part) fit better. DreamModel AS_565_Panther_window_bodge by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr All the best, Dermot
  7. Hi all, Here's my latest finish, for the French Fancy GB II here on the forum. The short build thread is here but to recap: Kit: DreamModel 1/72 AS-565 Panther Number: DM720008 Build: OOB Paints: Tamiya and Mr Hobby Acrylics. Klear, Homemade wash (a bit chalky) Decals: From kit Extras: P/E and resin bits from kit The build was fairly straightforward but the clear parts needed a good bit of test-fitting and fuselage trimming to make them fit. While there's lovely P/E and resin bits supplied with the kit, they don't include the collectives for the cockpit or the port side searchlight. There's also nothing in the back of the cabin which is a pity and the rotorhead is a bit simplified. The kit-supplied decals were super thin (which helped with putting them on) but had a mad desire to curl up if left too long. But happy how it turned out, it's a cool scheme and looks good from across the room!

Take care Dermot
  8. Here's my entry, a French Naval AS-565 Panther in Centenary Scheme. The build thread is here but to recap: Kit: DreamModel 1/72 AS-565 Panther Number: DM720008 Build: OOB Paints: Tamiya and Mr Hobby Acrylics. Klear, Homemade wash Decals: From kit Extras: P/E and resin bits from kit Dream_Model_1_72_AS_565_Panther_Marine_1 (11) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Dream_Model_1_72_AS_565_Panther_Marine_1 (7) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Dream_Model_1_72_AS_565_Panther_Marine_1 (10) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Dream_Model_1_72_AS_565_Panther_Marine_1 (8) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Dream_Model_1_72_AS_565_Panther_Marine_1 (9) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Thanks for looking and happy modelling.

  9. And with the last bits added. c'est fini! Dream_Model_1_72_AS_565_Panther_Marine_1 (6) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Dream_Model_1_72_AS_565_Panther_Marine_1 (7) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Dream_Model_1_72_AS_565_Panther_Marine_1 (8) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Will post some more pics in the Gallery, thanks for all your kind words and to @Wez for hosting this one. Until the next time, happy modelling and take care. All the best, Dermot
  10. Great build and finish - that's not an easy kit to start off with. Welcome along and can't wait to see the next build! All the best, Dermot
  11. So decals done and then added the fiddly P/E antennae and gear. DreamModel AS_565_Panther_12 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr The wash was a homemade light grey mix - turned out ok-ish. Last bits to add and she'll be done. Cheers, Dermot
  12. Half-term here so started on the decals. DreamModel AS_565_Panther_11 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Very nice but very thin with a mad desire to curl up on themselves. Cheers, Dermot
  13. That’s terrific Jason, great finish.
  14. This weekend was all about intakes. Hasegawa_F-14_Tomcat_1_72_3 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Cheers, Dermot
  15. Thanks Rich and everyone who's commented/liked. Masked up the Light Green so I could spray the Dark Green... Trumpeter_ Strv_103C_ (13) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr The Dark Green is 90% I J N Green with 10% yellow Trumpeter_ Strv_103C_ (14) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Then masked again for the last colour which is NATO Black Trumpeter_ Strv_103C_ (15) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Trumpeter_ Strv_103C_ (16) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Waited an hour and then remove all the masking tape bits - quite happy how that turned out! Trumpeter_ Strv_103C_ (17) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Wheels and tracks next, then onto a gloss coat. Cheers, Dermot
  16. Nice one Johnny B, great scheme. Pink (yes pink) is a great base for an all-yellow scheme - Tamiya do mini-spray cans of it. If you can, try to add some weight inside the instrument cluster or under the front of the floor - the kit can be a little tail-happy. All the best, Dermot
  17. Thanks all and yes, working away at this one! Cockpit in progress.. Hasegawa_F-14_Tomcat_1_72_cockpit by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr And added in.. Hasegawa_F-14_Tomcat_1_72_cockpit_2 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr My kit didn't have the NACA gun parts mentioned by @Pierpaolo so I had to raid another Hasegawa boxing to get them. Surprised at the amount of flash on them.. Hasegawa_F-14_Tomcat_1_72_cockpit_3 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr More soon and thanks for looking. Dermot
  18. Masking up the tail for the blue and red DreamModel AS_565_Panther_9 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr And after a couple of goes to get it right and some touchups here and there, happy how it has turned out! DreamModel AS_565_Panther_10 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Will leave it cure overnight and then on to clear coat. Thanks for looking! Dermot
  19. Thanks everyone. First coat of paint on which is Tan. Trumpeter_ Strv_103C_ (11) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Then masked and hit with Light Green which is 80% Tamiya IJN Green with 20% Yelllow. Trumpeter_ Strv_103C_ (12) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Cheers, Dermot
