Hi guys, I'm a long-time lurker of this forum and have recently decided to show off a few of my builds (they've never been anywhere close to good enough before now!) Everything in this thread has been built since January this year (I've made a return to modelling as a stress-reliever between pieces of uni work!)

So without further ado, here they are...not upto much compared to most on here, but I'm quite proud of them...

All C&C welcome, let me know what you think! :smile:

Great build,s as far as I can see,It,s all about enjoyment, how far you want to pursue the hobby is a matter of personal taste with

weathering/after market etc or just quick out of the box building but those build's are a great start welcome to the madness! :thumbsup:

Hi guys, many thanks for the kind comments! :yahoo:

To answer your question, Logical, the spotting effect on the 109 was accomplished by mixing a shade approx. 50/50 of the colour mixed for RLM 65 with RLM 02. I then used a fine paint brush to paint on the areas randomly, until I liked the look of the effect created :)

Cheers,

JJC

There's some very fine work there. I love the 190 and the 109.

Like yourself, I do this for a stress buster and so long as you enjoy it and like and take pride in what you turn out then its more than worth it.
