  1. Hi All, After quite a battle (mainly with the gun covers - anyone building this will know what I mean!) that left me with a mojo shortfall I took advantage of my wife being away for a few days to finally get to grips with it. It's a pretty challenging build but I think the outcome is something that looks like a Dora. The Eduard kit I chose had markings for quite a few aircraft and I chose this one as it was based near Celle - a special place for me as that's where I did my PO's visit so many years ago. All OOB (it was the Profi kit so it came with some nice PE anyway) and finished with a variety of paints - Tamiya, Humbrol and Vallejo Model Air. I couldn't find an explanation of the patches of underwing NMF anywhere. I read plausible explanations of full wing or half wing NMF but the colour call-out for this particular aircraft had this strange scheme that doesn't even follow panel lines. By this time I was happy to throw in the towel and hope that Eduard's researchers could be trusted! Weathering was with a selection of washes, silver pencil, Tamiya Smoke and pastels. I'm still not totally convinced about the RLM 81 on this model (I used Humbrol 251) but, again, I was happy to have the mojo sparking from my fingertips at this point in the build! I used Winsor & Newton's matt varnish for the first time and love it. I find it gives a nice control of the depth of matt-ness all the way from quite a shiny satin through to proper, powdery matt. Enough chat and on to the pictures. I hope you enjoy them and please do feel free to pass comment and constructive criticism. Up next - a break with Dragon's 1/144 X-15. Something that small has to be easy, right?! Cheers all, Roger
