  1. Finished off these 4 little ones finally. I am a bit annoyed that I didn't get them finished for the Mustang GB (clicky-linky-herey), but least they are done now. Hope you all like them. I apologise for the bad camera quality, the pictures where taken on my mobile phone at 11pm. Comments always welcome, constructive comments even more so Kind Regards, Dazz
  2. I've been itching to build these since I bought them 18 months ago The box contains two beautifully moulded kits, offering several build options and decals for six aircraft. For a tiny kit it packs a lot of detail... Like the perfectly formed main gear doors! And choice of normal or Malcolm hood. The two aircraft I'm doing are... Rosey T. And Chuck Yeager's Glamourus Glen. I used one of the Sweet decal options for a Revell Micro Wings Mustang I built last year so I could use the Revell decals for this build.
  3. Built for the Mustang group build. Build thread.
  4. Build 15 OK, first surprise with this kit... It's NOT made by Sweet Anyone who's ever made a Sweet kit knows how good the mouldings are and how beautiful the surface details look. So imagine my confusion when I opened the bag the kit comes in and find "soft" surface details, flash, seam gaps and cloudy glazing! It turns out that the kit is actually the F-Toys "ready made" Sea King but in "snap-together" kit form. The only involvement from Sweet is an extra sprue to turn it into a rescue chopper and the beautiful decals. Despite this, the kit looks like it should turn out OK and I'll have a nice bright yellow helicopter to add to my collection. Price: £4.75 from HobbyLink Japan
  5. Here are two 1/144 A6M2b Zeros from Sweet's Yokosuka Flying Group boxing: To be honest, I bought this of all the Sweet Zero kits (and, subsequently, Nick Millman's excellent guide on painting the early Zero) only because of the exotic colour schemes. On the painting instructions, Sweet do say that all the camouflage patterns are conjectural, allowing for some 'artist's impressions' by moi. The first of the two Zeros is Yo-107, painted in an experimental splinter camouflage dated December 1941: The kit was painted in overall J3 and dark green D1 on the upper surfaces and fuselage sides from mixtures of Humbrol enamels (for the J3) and Lifecolor acrylics (D1). The cowling is supposed to be blue-black, but my attempts to correct for scale haven't worked. The propeller stripe decals were extremely uncooperative and I painted them on two of the three propeller blades, and Humbrol Clear decided to eat into the LifeColor during the gloss coat, probably because I hadn't waited long enough for it to cure. I free-handed the splinter camouflage after going slightly mad trying to cut enough Tamiya tape to mask the parts and doing so in reverse. Several thinned coats of dark green were laid on an overall J3 finish for this effect. Next is aircraft Yo-151, painted in M1 over J3. When painting this one, I tried not to go for a colour that matched M1 according to Nick Millman's guide but instead tried to match the light green on the painting instructions; what I ended up with is a tad duller than that. The J3 I used for the undersides is paler and more yellow than for the model above. I left this plane in a gloss finish for fun (and also because I was too lazy to matt coat it). Thanks for looking! Comments are welcome.
