Hi all

 

Some more progress,  EDSG painted on, just got to fade the EDSG and paint the canopy frames then can add decals then

Undersides painted on the Sea Gladiator,  got to sort out the hinge ends of the arrestor hook recess and drill out holes in the other end .  AIMS carb air intake added after it was cut down to size

Lovely paintwork, Chris, the TSS looks fabulous on the Martlet and Avenger, and the Sea Gladiator unders are very nice in their Night/white (I really need to sort out a Night/white scheme!).

 

Cheers, 

Mark

Hi Chris - after all this time I'm still impressed with your brush painted/weathered models - these look really good - can't wait to see them decalled.

Thanks Mark, pleased with how they are all Progressing,  the white looks well white, but it is quite a dirty white in reality.   You need to do a Sea Gladiator fella:whistle:

Looking fine Chris,

The Tarpon in particular and your patented fading will only add to the looks.

 

 

Cheeers,

Alistair

Thanks Alistair,  both the Tarpon and Martlet have now been faded and some framing has been painted too. Pleased with how they are looking. Will get the old cocktail stick rubbed around the framing to tidy before I post any images though.

Lovely work as usual! Interesting colours for me.

Thanks David, I do love the TSS  camouflage, the Gladiator is an interesting scheme as part RAF and part FAA as am modelling it after being taken on by FAA after RAF use.

 

Thanks

The Avenger has also been faded and all decals applied, there are quite a few teeny tiny stencils that have been applied over a couple of evenings. Undercarriage also added.

Beautiful work there Chris.

Thanks Mark, although I may have overdone the blotchy staining on the Avenger, will see what it looks like with a matt varnish on.

Love that colour scheme.... and gorgeous paint as usual. The blotching is a very interesting effect!

Thanks David, very kind, I hope I haven't overdone the blotching, will have to see once the wash and matt varnish is applied.
