  1. Another one from the Christmas WIP over the festive season... Nice simple kit that needs alot of nose weight. Alot. Hataka 'international orange' from the early USN set. Played around mixing some white in to fade the top, along with the final varnish sheens. Desert sun faded Matt ontop going to satin lowers. Mr color 351 zinc chromate for the interiors, touched up and chipped with the mig colours. Super metals - probes in chrome and hubs in super fine silver. More Details in the WIP here - Anyway here it is - This one below shows the fading better. Orange looks very monotone against the white background in other pics. Again bleached uppers more apparent in this one below. Thanks for looking Tony O
  2. So this is my interpretation of mj250, a NMF spitfire with a darker (camo?) cowl. I got this little jewel of a kit from Mikemx at mjw models during a haul of goodies. Nice chap who can source about any eduard brassin going! I went for the NMF option to make it a quick build over Christmas holidays as would be easier than trying a full camo scheme in 72nd. Plus to save the stencil decals for some future overtrees also. It came along that nicely that it had its own WIP, here: There is a train of thought/discussions on the net that says the nose was darker stained metal as opposed to camouflage. Having trawlled the net for pics I haven't seen a build of it like this, all of them have the camo on the nose. So I went for the all metal option to be different Finished almost exclusively in mig ammo products, using the acrylic metals for the NMF. Details of which ones where can be found in the WIP, but any questions please ask. Without further ado... Ta-daaa!!! In black and white - cowl could be mistaken as still having camo? I think this last B&W one is the 'money shot' in regards to the appearance of the nose area. In general: Cockpit etc. Undersides: And lastly without added lighting. Not as 'contrasty' Fairly happy with pics. Although some do make it look a bit crude because you have to zoom in so much because she is so tiny. Would like to take some outside in daylight (less harsh contrasts?) if it ever stops being grim up north. Thanks for looking. Tony Update!

  3. Last one (promise) from the Christmas WIP... I did quite alot in three weeks off. Well not much apart from messing about with plastic... This one was bought for an experiment from Mikemx at mjw models. As I already had the hataka USN paint set for the tomcat saga, and I wanted to try out the blue that came in it. (Incidentally the orange in that set was used on the Bell X-1, See my other RFI) This has now turned me into a hellcat fanatic and now have several more in 72nd... After taking all the pics I noticed in them that the antenna mast had been pulled back by the ez line. Thats since been sorted, as I managed to pull it out rather than snap it off, which would have made it almost impossible to re-attach strongly. Anyways, weekend edition OOB including decal seatbelts (fine through closed canopy) Just some added ez line and stretched sprue. Paint was hataka for all the main colours - blue/white/black and yellow tips. I tried gunze self levelling thinner with them after reading about that somewhere else. And it worked very well for thin coats to fade the blue. Interior and tires by Mr Color, Engine and drop tank in Ak extreme metals aluminium. Exhaust stain airbrushed and gun barrel streaks are pigments. Full details in here - Here it is with the sorted mast (this afternoon) And here are all the ones from yesterday (note wonky mast!) Thanks for looking!
  4. Well this one was bought in a haul from mjw models recently, cracking service from Mikemx as per usual. It was originally going to be in the Christmas WIP I started, but its coming along so nicely I thought I'd treat it to its own thread. Also going to be trying out the mig ammo metal acrylics. I have used them for details in my tomcat saga and thought to try out a whole NMF with them. In keeping with modellers OCD as many of the other paints as possible will be from the Ammo range too. So I'm going to try and do this with these... and detail with these... I have used their interior green before on a 1/48 spit and found it quite light, so should suit a 1/72 better? Here is build in question... http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235004876-eduard-148-mk16-bubbletop-spitfire-vallejo-metal-color-fest/
