Dermot's Brushpainted 2017

Recommended Posts

Hi all and Happy Christmas to you and yours!

Here's my modelling year, all brush-painted except for anything white which was from a rattle-can and all are mostly 1/72 and OOB unless noted.


First up was Revell's 1/72 Jaguar in Gulf War scheme for a 'Call of Nature' (anything with an animal name). Built OOB with ordinance from the spares box.

Next was Kinetic's 1/72 F-16 Sufa for the F-16 Group Build here. Nice kit if a little fiddly but rubbish instructions/decal guides!

Then Revell's 1/72 EC135 converted to a T2 in Irish police (Garda) air support markings. I'm especially proud of this one as I was gobsmacked to win both the Helo class and best Irish Aviation Subject at our Nationals earlier this year.





For the Experimentals/Prototypes GB here, I built the two F-35 X-planes, both by Italeri and in 1/72.


The Boeing X-32

And the winning Lockheed Martin X-35




Then a complete change of tack for me...a ship! This is Hobby Boss' USS Lassen in 1/700 built OOB including etch railings & bits which come with the kit and really add to the finish.

Then for something completely different.....my first conversion. In 1/144 combining Heller's E-2 Hawkeye and Ozmods kit to produce a C-2 Greyhound COD

Back to OOB - Airfix's beautiful 1/72 A-4 Skyhawk in Argentinian Navy markings (from the old Airfix kit which were rubbish)




Then a bit of What-iffery..Revell's 1/72 Blackhawk in Irish Air Corps markings.

Bandai's cracking Sandtrooper and my first Bandai kit - great engineering/detail and just a wash and weathering on this.

For the Made In Britain GB, Revell's lovely little 1/72 Hawk in Red Arrows markings. Was really happy with the finish on this one with a brush.

And to round off the year for the Radial Engines Rock GB, Italeri's B-25B in Doolittle Raider markings.

Still have a couple on the go and if I get them done, will add them here.

Thanks for looking and all your comments during the year - here's to a great modelling 2018!

What a lovely line up. Brush painting par excellence. I'd have said airbrush if I wasn't told, be proud of them, they're truly superb. :)
