  1. Past hour
  2. Did you overcoat the bare metal? Thank you.
  3. Look at her! Hope she has a lovely time convalescing, and doesn’t jump around too much Rob
  4. Shame about the canopy as you have done a great job with the painting and decaling. Not a mark of silver anywhere. Looks good and probably more realistic with the cover. Colin
  5. See the decal sheet in post 1 above- a particular boxing of the kit had your Race 80 covered.
  6. looks good so far, maybe time for a look to the entrance of the bulge on top, in front of the fin, that one doesn't look smooth
  7. 1/48, Eduard doesn't do a "G" in any other scale.
  8. Hi All, I'm back for more and ready to go. I'm aiming to start Saturday 9 am. I've done the sprue shots already to save a couple of minutes of build time. It looks as if will be fairly straight forward and I'll be finishing it as a vehicle of the 21st Panzer Division of the DAK. I can't wait to get started. Dave.
  9. Actually there isn't anything I've seen in 1/48 in the aftermarket , but there is a set for 1/72 from Andy at Thunderbird Models..... I will continue to hunt for a 1/48 set.......
  10. Good progress there Stix, your washes bring out your zimmerit - and other details - nicely. Hmm ... "I want to see it painted, painted black Black as night, black as ... Anthracite " with appologies to Richards & Jagger
  11. Scale Solutions lovely resin Derelict kit completed. Compared to the Halcyon Nostromo,they appear to be a similar scale. Very Happy to have a big derelict in the collection,its one of my favourite designs ever. Andy
  12. As it's such a lovely, bright, sunny, & warm day, a quick application of Zircon blue was in order: All the best Angelo.
  13. In-box reviews of the Night Fighter boxing and dedicated photo-etched detail set from Brengun: http://www.kfs-miniatures.com/1-144-horten-ho-229-night-fighter-brengun/ http://www.kfs-miniatures.com/1-144-ho-229a-blaszka-do-zestawu-brengun-brengun/
  14. In-box review of Ki-87-II: http://www.kfs-miniatures.com/1-72-nakajima-ki-87-ii-rs-models/
  15. The paints were from the Colourcoats range (M1/M5 I think) - https://www.sovereignhobbies.co.uk/collections/modern-naval-colours Lovely paints to spray, great quality Tim
  16. Navalised fin just behind the canopy is homemade from thick white card. Not very refined but more accurate for the Q version than in the kit. Still not sure about my crude scratch building but from a display distance I’m quite pleased. Not sure if il add to the other 2
  17. I had a similar experience with the FJ-1. The kit had an etched set for the cockpit but once I placed the canopy (closed) it was difficult to see the details.
  18. Really nice looking! Thanks for sharing. Rod
  19. Today
  20. When I cut resin parts free I'll typically use a small saw or if I use a knife I'll cut it free by scratching/scribing cuts to free it (not trying to push the blade through the resin). It definitely takes some time using a knife, which is why I usually prefer a saw blade if I can make it work. I'm still a hack when it comes to resin (I've only done a cockpit, couple sets of seats, and the Kormoran), but that is what has worked for me in the past.
  21. Yes pictures are showing! Thank you for correction. This is another lovely 109!
