Hello Everyone, This is my third build for Karen at work. This time I have gone for the "enemy" and provided the BF110, before anyone asks or notices, I am not allowed to put any swastikas on the aircraft. Complete crock I think but I can live with it. I used an Eduard Zoom set for the interior and mask for the canopy, both I will be using again, but not relying on them. Oh I also had an Eduard Brassin MG15, which I also like as well and I will be using the other one that I have. I'm not too sure on the colours, but this is what Vallejo suggest and I am aware of the cock up on the right engine with the wash. I am going with an oil leak for that one Well here are the pictures of said aircraft. For some weird reason, Flory Washes do not like Vallejo RLM66 (or 65 I can not remember).. it's had 4 coats of gloss over it and it still sticks and refuses to budge. Could of done better with the join line and the wash. But more things I will take with me to the next model. That 3 I've done... wow I am in danger of clearing a whole shelf of models in my man cave Comments welcome Kind Regards, Dazz
Hello one and all, A while ago I asked for ideas in the chat section for some models to display for the school I work for. The short story is that, Karen, the Librarian there holds a lunch for all of the veterans on/near Rememberance Day for our local lads (or lasses). This year I suggested that I would build her some models so she could show off to the kids and the veterans could talk about said models. I have finished 3 of them now, and here is the first. And finally a picture of her not baking in the sun. I think this is the first of the Airfix "new" tools I have made, even tho I do have a fair few. I was less than impressed with the decals as mine wouldn't move! I placed them and that was it, they just stuck! I managed it in the end by using another set of decals that I have of the same aircraft (got to get an aftermarket set now). I think that maybe the weathering is a tad too heavy, but I was having so much fun doing it! Boys do like to get dirty and all that... oo-er. This was the first time that I had used EZ-line as well, I know it can really stretch, but I wasn't too sure on that mast. Live and learn huh? All comments for improvement are most welcome. Kind Regards, Dazz
