  1. Just wrapped this up before work this morning. I won't go into the kit in too much depth as others have already, far more eloquently and in a more informed way. But I will say that it's absolutely beautiful. Falls together, fantastic fit, lovely details, clear instructions. I really can't fault it - beyond the sort of 'what if' scenarios of wishing there were PE belts etc. Still - for those who care enough, those can be bought! Anyway - onto the build. I am including a few along-the-way images, as I used this build to try / improve a few things I have been learning. Interior was painted with Citadel black primer, then the section behind the cockpit was dry brushed with Vallejo aluminium - total waste of time as it's utterly invisible, but I guess most on here will get the motivation. Cockpit and engine section was sprayed with Tamiya USAF tan rattle can. The details were brush painted, before white oil paint was used to pop out some raised details. Reflector sight was a cut strip from 35mm film - a roll that came back blank goes a long way for this! It's darker than ideal, but I quite like the look of it. The main body was primed black - again with Citadel - which I really recommend for rattle can users. I then primed control surfaces with Citadel white, before painting the whole kit with Tamiya bare metal silver. Next up was the red tail. I masked it off, re-primed control surfaces white over the metal, then added a little watercolour masking fluid to leading edges. The result came out rather nicely. I then masked off some wing sections and did a dusting of Tamiya titanium sliver rattle can to break up large areas. After this I mixed small amounts of Vallejo Air aluminium paint with Vallejo black grey, or Vallejo yellow - in varying ratios - before brush painting small panels, hatches, sections - again to break it all up. I then tried to make my own masks, cutting masking tape stuck onto the decal sheet for the distinctive flap markings... this went - well - badly. I am too slipshod with a scalpel and the masks were terrible, and the decals ruined. Instead I cut up an old German cross into small pieces and made the stencil markings from scratch. These ended up pretty overstated, but I was actually really happy with them. Not one for the 'accurists' - but I like the slightly oversized aspect. Still - someone defter than me might use this technique really nicely. No carrier film, and quite fun to do! All markings bar the tail, and wheel covers were home made masks (not too challenging) with varying primers under the red paint and a little masking fluid used. I then did an oil pin-wash over the whole kit. Then small decals were added. And I cut the excess carrier film off the tail marking - which I balked at making myself! Amazing how much difference a few seconds of trimming decals makes. I can't believe I never did it before. Spinner and prop were painted with Tamiya RAF dark earth, then dry brushed with Vallejo mixed brown + white, with minimal chipping. And that was that! Quite happy with how it all turned out. Thanks for looking! Bruce
  2. Hello everyone. I would like to share my new project with you. It's my sixth 1/8 scale truck that is currently under construction. Just like the previous models I have built, it's not a self-chosen project, but an ordered model of an existing 1/1 model. The model is a Volvo Viking L485 from 1960 with a Danish-built cab. It is completely scratch built in metal. I started it in November 2017, being halfway through the project and expecting to deliver it around May this year. ( My new German colleague, Hr Holzmann. Does his work (Metal Cutting / cutting, rolling and bending.) Very well. ) Klaus
  3. The first one has only just been put to bed and they want more!! Well it was a great GB with lots and lots of interesting subjects, which is the nice thing about this type of GB. No matter whats your fancy or favourite subject matter youre more than welcome to bring it along. And from the builds in the last GB you can see we pretty well had everything covered. Non-Injection Moulded GB - Gallery There was an early concern about model eligibility and members showing up with just conversions kits, but it didnt happen, everyone knew the deal and showed up with some amazing models to build. The only issue we did have is what every other GB suffers formnot enough time.though there were a few who couldnt just stop at buildingno they built LOTS!!! So there have been lots of requests to run another one, so here it is! Same deal as before; · The Model has to be made of a material other than Injection Moulded plastic, NO conversion kits! · The spares box can be raided for some of the essential small parts (but as can be seen from all the builds in the last one this wasnt really needed) but to be kept to a minimum. · Subject matter is completely open. · Model material complete open, excluding what was mentioned above. · The final builds will be broken up into three (3) categories based on the main material they are made from; - Resin models - VacForm models - Other material models So have a look at the last GB to see the range of models, then pluck up the courage to have a go at something a bit different from what youre built before and have a go! Plus if anyone has a catchy title for this GB along the dodgy monster theme let me know.

    Metal fan blades for Revell Airbus?

    Hi all, I've been building the Revell A319/20's recently, putting a little more work into them each time. I'd really like some metal fan blades for the engines. A quick search hasn't turned up any. Does anyone know if they're out there? Chris
  5. Hello, here is another project that started with the pictures found in the internet. Even the tires had to be built from the zero. The scale is 1:25 The project is half made in resin, although my models are mainly built in tinplate In this picture the tires are from the old project that I made years ago. In this picture the tires are from the new project that I made this month.
  6. Hello, I am glad to be posting something about my scratch built trucks here. These are lacking just a few details and I plan to change the tires also
