  1. Hard to believe this is the old Airfix rivet monster! Excellent work.
  2. Gosto muito. Excellent paint job, great attention to details.
  3. Thank you for feedback, Toby. I put the Vaseline creme on the metallic surface, then painted the Olive Drab color. When dry, the Vaseline was wiped off with a moist cloth or tissue. You can only paint one session with this method. The US insignia is the kit decal. I over-misted the Star-N-Bar with Olive Drab while still on the sheet and fixed the paint with a layer of clear gloss. The "chipping effect" on the insignia was achieved by cutting and scraping bits off with a hobby knife. The damaged and weathered decal was then carefully applied to the wing surface. I am surprised you came across this build, it was first posted in summer 2013 and hadn't seen any new posts since 2016! Greetings from Vienna Roman
  4. A very interesting build. I have an Italeri A-26 in my stash, and now I'm eager to get started! Could it be that Italeri included the wrong canopy? I've read that late-production A-26's were equipped with the "Clamshell Canopy", from the 30 production block onwards. The variant you have used looks like the flat-top cockpit with a single hatch, opening forward on the Navigator's side?
  5. This release is much appreciated, as the only other injection-molded option in small scale is the old Matchbox kit. Tracks'n'Troops has it in the list for 20€: http://www.tracks-n-troops.eu/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=14_1&products_id=18148
  6. You have a very eclectic choice of subjects, Libor. Great & clean build!
  7. AZ Model's Bf-109 is a sweet little kit of which I've done several myself! The Greys you've used on both models are too dark in my humble opinion. For small scale models it's advisable to brighten up the colors with a drop of White ("scale effect"). I have seen period photographs of "White 7" (allegedly, Ossi Romm's machine) with very heavy mottles applied to the fuselage sides, so your rendition is close to the original.
  8. Thank you for Feedback, Martin. Alclad lacquers require a gloss coat as primer, my prefered choice is Tamiya TS-14 Gloss Black. This paint also helps to detect surface irregularities (such as scratches, dust or seamlines) due to its reflective nature.
  9. This is exactly what I was thinking.
  10. That's a cracker, Angelo! All that masking pain was truly worth the effort.
  11. Your Lordship, I can assure you there are no pitfalls in this kit! It may be a bit over-engineered in places (such as the gear bays), resulting in a high parts count. Apart from that, the build was plain sailing.
  12. Thanks for feedback, Mark! Tires are from the box and come with flattened bottom.
  13. Mike, you built the same kit a few months ago, so you are familiar with the quality and detail provided in the new Airfix B-17! In my opinion this is the best B-17 model in this scale on the market. I found it relatively easy to assemble . Some time went into the surface preparation though as NMF finishes are unforgiving when it comes to dust, hair or scratches. Thank you very much for your feedback! Best greetings from Vienna Roman
  14. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my latest, the 1/72 Airfix B-17G (new tool) built from the box with the addition of photo-etch-seatbelts from my spares box. "Mah Ideel" operated with 401st Bomb Squadron, 91st Bomb Group, out of Bassingbourn/Cambridgeshire in fall of 1944. The model was painted with Alclad II lacquers and Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thank you for your interest in this topic. Best greetings from Vienna Roman
