  1. Thanks everyone! My paint of choice these days is AK Real Colors. Sprays as easily as Tamiya acrylics and dries with a nice satin sheen like Gunze MrColor without the smell. I wasn't able to find a dedicated Foliage Green. When I was building my P-47D, AK's Dull Dark Green for the cockpit struck me as a really good candidate for Foliage so that's what I had planned to use. When I checked the Eduard instructions they suggested Gunze's DDG, so that reaffirmed my decision.
  2. Thanks! I just used a thin strip of tape cut from the leftovers on the Eduard canopy masks sheet. I always keep the scraps, as it's nice and thin and great for curves and delicate masking
  3. Hey folks! Here's my latest off the bench, my 5th Eduard Spitfire. This time an Aussie Eight Spitfire VIII "QY-T" No 452 Sqn, RAAF F/L William "Ron" Cundy Sattler Airstrip, July 1944 BarracudaCast cockpit snapshot set BarracudaCast wheels Ultracast exhaust Ultracast spinner Master brass barrels Brassin 30gal slipper tank Scratch details Custom paint masks
  4. Thanks for all the feedback, folks! Glad you like it
  5. Hi folks! Latest one off the bench for me, Tamiya's venerable P-47D Razorback. Unsurprisingly, this was a pleasure to build and I'm quite happy with the results. No73 OTU, RAF Fayid, Egypt, Autumn 1944 Fully riveted True Details cockpit Ultracast seat Yahu instrument panel Ultracast wheels Ultracast prop Miracle Paint Masks Freightdog decals for the nose art Various scratch details All AK Real Colors paints Anyway, on to the pics!
  6. Good eye! As with all of my Eduard 109 builds, I did shorten the main gear legs to get the proper stance
  7. Thanks! It's RLM 81/82 with 25 tail band. All greens and wrap-around camo underneath, I thought it was pretty unique
  8. No, I swapped wings with my WNF overtrees for the big bulges. I couldn't find any WNF schemes I liked anyway, so now that's an MTT kit
  9. Last one off the bench for me in 2020, Eduard's Bf109G-10 Erla in 48th scale JG27 "Black 7" Location unknown, June 1945 MDC cockpit sidewalls Quickboost seat pan Yahu instrument panel Brassin exhaust BarracudaCast main wheels BarracudaCast tail wheel Scratch details Montex paint masks AK Real Colors paints
  10. This was a busy year for me, as it was for many of us in 2020. I ended up with 9 completed builds, and a 10th on the shelf awaiting some Master antennae. That's more this year than the previous 3 years combined for me! 1/48 Eduard Bf109F-2 1/48 Tamiya He162 "what-if" 1/48 Airfix Spitfire XIX 1/48 Eduard/Gavia La-7 1/48 Tamiya P-51B 1/48 Eduard Fw190A-8 1/48 Eduard Bf109G-6 1/48 Hasegawa Macchi C.205
  11. Thanks for the kind words, everyone! I've been using AK's Real Colors on all of my builds this year and I'm quite pleased with the RLM's. The only one I have an issue with is the 02, which I mix 50/50 with 75 to get a shade I think is correct. They're also a joy to spray - they go down with the ease of Tamiya acrylics and dry to nice satin sheen like MrColor lacquers 74/75/76 again on my 109G-6: 81 (Dark Green) / 75 / 76 (Late) on my 190A-8 And for fun, 76 and 83 (Blue) on my what-if He162:
  12. Back with the latest off the bench - Hasegawa's 1/48 Macchi C.205 Macchi C.205 Veltro Series III Red 23, 1° Gruppo Caccia, 1st Squadriglia, ANR March 1944, Udine, Italy - True Details cockpit - Yahu instrument panel - Quickboost intake, exhausts, oil coolers - Ultracast wheels - Albion Alloys tubing gun barrels - Sky Decals - Riveted - All scoops opened up - Painted with AK Real Colors On to the pics!
  13. Thanks! As for the prop it's a little bit of both, but mainly flecked varnish. I do spray it with slightly lightened base color and do some sponge chipping with a lighter green, but almost all of that is hidden by the varnish trick. I toned it down a little this time compared to my other recent builds, it's AK Matte Varnish with Ultra Matte flecked on it with a brush and toothpick, then a thin layer of Matte sprayed back over top
  14. Wow! Thanks for the feedback folks! That's some high praise, I'm glad you all like it. I feel like I'm getting back in the groove and each build is a little bit better than the last. Plenty more to come!
