  1. Hi Jack, I'll follow this topic with great interest. I've just bought this nice simple kit for the same problem .... to be able to complete it. I've many "skeletons" lying on my model bench, I have no experience on WWI tanks or armoured cars so my first doubt is bound to the Vallejo colours. The khaki colour for the Russian cars is correct? I suppose it's the same used on the original British production vehicles but the Vallejo colur is the proper one? Which is the FS number? About the Austrian version I'm not so sure it's the Russian original colour. If you can wait till Saturday I
  2. Thank you to all. Andwill - I'm happy you appreciate the nickname, my wife find my character perfectly aligned with the pretty animal TallBlondJohn - THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, you gave me just what I needed so after a short pause I can start again with my work
  3. After the last details and painting. Still missing pilot seat and other components and final paint adjustment. For the bomber position I tried to guess the cutaway because the place in the Hendon's Stanraer is empty. I hope it works fine. Next step will be to find the painting instruction because in my ebay Matchbox there were the assembling instructions but no painting instructions so I'm desperately looking for them. If I do not find I'll turn to a all metal colour version. About this topic in the Cox profile there is the remark: finish metal surfaces anodic (silve
  4. This is also my opinion. Sorry for the "bare metal". It's due to my poor English I meant a aluminium colour. I'd like more with this mixed version the old and new era together. My question was due to the fact that I never see another one
  5. I bought the kit many, many years ago on ebay with some parts broken or missing. I've searched and searched interior details. Then I saw the Vulcanicity masterpiece and decided to go. Never surrender!
  6. Dear friends I'd like to share with you my work on this Matchbox kit. First of all my thanks to Vulcanicity for his 2017 topic who guided me through my work. A very important guide I used his topic, the Mushroom book and the G.A.G. Cox precious (precious, my precious......) profile. He gave me the courage to face the challenge. I post only the final result of the interiors before closing because the step by step would be only a copy and paste of Vulcanicity big work. The only difference is that I preferred to detail the bomber position using the profile. Actually I have to complete o
  7. More and more interesting Fozzy. I never thought at the yoghurt pots but for the curve shapes they could be very useful. I'll go on following your precious lessons. Ezio
  8. Tamiya colours are my best preferred ones even if I use often Xtreacolous, Lifecolor, Hataka and Vallejo Air. The main problem with Tamiya is to find the proper Fderal Standard reference. Searching in the web I found this intersting link http://ipmsrealcote.pro-forums.org/t832-tamiya-mixes-for-some-fs-colors-full-up-to-date-list-in-english Ezio
  9. What an endeavour! You're a brave man but mostly you are an artist. Very beautiful! I'll folow this topic with great interest Ezio
  10. I hope that after the nose "surgical treatment" the convalescence goes well ..... You did a great job. A new nos from the wooden one.
  11. The tin box is a little Treasure Chest! I hope to read your lines soon Ezio
  12. Bristol Boy, I've read with great interest the story of your nice job on the Sparrow and I completed my visit with the Bombay pages too. It's always a pleasure to see that these old but still valid kits come back to the life. Very nice the Sparrow interiors and I think it was worth the trouble because through the side windows they can easily be admired. Just a question which is the plane you are going to portray? I suppose it's the K6994 U Ezio
  13. Thank you to all. Next problem is the internal floor position. If I trust the Contrail instructions it seems to be higher than expected. I must measure with the pilot and navigator position
