2019 output


Recommended Posts

Hello all,


Here are my completed builds for 2019, some better than others. All are 1/48 except the vehicles which are 1/35. I started using Mr Paint this year and I'm hooked!


First up was an example of the best fitting kit I've ever made, the Tamiya F-14D, this one marked as a machine from VF-213 'Blacklions' during their last cruise with the jet in 2005/6.

...and another Tamiya F-14, this time an A model in the markings of VF-41 'Black Aces' during Operation 'Enduring Freedom' in 2001.

First armour build of the year was the old but enjoyable Tamiya Stug IV.

Next was ICMs Mig-25PD, a kit I was very much looking forward to for a while. Wasn't the easiest to put together but was very pleased with the final product.

Hasegawa EA-18G Growler - this was my first experience with Mr Paint. Sold!

Tamiya's wonderful new Spitfire was the first part of my RAF 'QRA through the years' project. An absolute gem of a kit.

Another Tamiya kit in the form of the F-16C was next.

Another completion from my RAF QRA project was Airfix's Lightning, the first model of this jet that I've built.

Tamiya King Tiger.

Penultimate build of the year was one that had been sitting in the stash for years; glad to get it done and really pleased with how it went - F-4F from JG-71 'Richthofen'.

Finally and probably my favourite build of the year, Hobbyboss Su-27 Flanker of the Ukrainian Air Force.

As always, a big thanks to all those who have helped, followed and commented on my builds throughout the year and thanks to those who keep the forum running!

Fabulous builds there, I especially like the Ukrainian Flanker.

How did you get on with those masks? I only ask as I plan to use their mask set for the Trumpeter Su-24.



Thanks Martin. The masks worked fine, just a bit of craft needed for the bigger ones; I found cutting them in half and forming them over any curved surfaces worked well. Some of the smaller parts did lift off, but this can be worked around by pressing them down with a cocktail stick when spraying. I'll be doing the Su-24 soon myself, the instructions aren't the clearest and looks like the smallest masks for the dark grey areas will need to go on first.
