Yes Mr G !

Tamiya masking sheet, I enjoy the stuff

Psss :bandit: It's easier to cut straight...:bandit:

Definitely! I often use it , stuck on top of brass sheet, to cut proper straight edges. :) 

 

As a mask, though, I had a few disappointing experiences, with it lifting up as soon as I hit it with airbrushed paint (Tamiya, BTW). It happened to me a while back and I've never tried it again ever since, but I guess a thin gloss coat brushed along the edges should short the issue. HTH

 

 

BTW, temperature dropped over here too, going below zero overnight, but luckily no snow :cold:

And I got 2 new entries in my tiny museum...

Now I know that I'm taller than a P-47D prop blade...

And you've got a clue of the next entry....:evil_laugh::evil_laugh:

From that same P-47 in fact....

Sincerely.

CC, coming along great--ancient history now, but I really enjoyed reviewing the work you put into the engine--she looks great on the gear & your son is quite the artist--best, Erwin

Thanks a lot from my son !!

 

Well, did I ever mention how much I hate fuselage stripes....

And why did I choose aircraft with these pesky stripes...:rage:

Well, This will bring some waters to @giemme's mill.....

Revell did'nt make plywood decals like the one of Tamiya san...

BUT !!!

These ones are plexyglas maybe .. Perhaps... Who knows ????????

 

IMG_20210412_230157

Such a thick thing....

Then, I know what to do with these bezels

Then, you both know that I like size comparisons...

No @CedB, not these size comparison...

I repeat now, I apologize to all the Valerie who can read this...

 

IMG_20210414_225255

See a Val is the same size than a Walrus....

Stay safe Gents !! and have a great modelling time !!

Hello Dears,

However I did'nt used enamels for years, I think that I did'nt mess it too much !!

Now these Colourcoats paints are really good ones...

IMG_20210416_163810 IMG_20210416_163748 IMG_20210416_163757

Ame Iro applied !!

I don't know why,  it is my first ever Japanese kit...

I mean a kit depicting a japanese aircraft...

I wish you all an happy modelling week end !!

Stay safe !!
