Lovely Tiger. You certainly have gone to town!

I'm almost there with my tribute to Grandpa. Flat Iron Valley 14th September 1916.

 


And my 9-year-old son and I have been doing parallel Brummbars... Nearly done.

Lovely work, STN. A really difficult camouflage pattern. That's amazing airbrush work.

 

Thanks, von C. Far better than I was as well. I did tell him and he was really chuffed!

The apple does not fall far from the tree...  outstanding stuff. When I was nine I could barely piece together an Airfix before putting a banger in it to enjoy the destruction!

 

I hope it will not be too much of a shock when he decides scale modelling is naff and interfering with his sexting or whatever it will be in a few years time.

Thanks guys. Although I must admit, it did not come out as planned. There were supposed to be less streaks, wider ones and differently shaped. I noticed after I had one wing finished, so decided to just continue.

Been a while since I added some shots, so here we go ;)

 

It's a 1/48 Albion 3 Point Fueller by Airfix.  Nice kit to build.

 

Eventually it will be part of a diorama.

 

Thanks for looking :salute:

Another Czech aircraft? Looks as if it is coming on nicely. But don't ask me to recognise it when it's finished.

Yep, another 2 seat trainer from the golden thirties. Still deciding which colour scheme to apply.

There are some inaccuracies, but overall I enjoyed the kit a lot. It was fun adding a few details here and there :)

Adding to the Albion (see earlier post),

 

The figures are Eduard's 1/48 RAF Fighter crew (kit 8507).  the Hurricane is one of Airfix's earlier kits.

 

The Hurri will not be part of the dio as the kit had a one piece canopy.  I cut it to have it the open position, however not trying to ruin it when I heat it to fit, I decided to build another Hurri ;)

 

Cheers

Should be a good ensemble, Smouch.

Lovely Panther, Baron. The tracks are the business.

KakTyc, that is one of those ones where you can't guess the scale! Gorgeous.

That is some lump of an engine! Am I allowed to say that, of the two most beautiful cars ever made, the E type and the Citroen DS, the more beautiful is the DS? .....I'll get my coat....

It is said that even Enzo Ferrari claimed The E type was the most beautiful car ever designed.

 

The DS or The Maserati powered Citroen SM are truly beautiful also. 

 

I am on the fence on this one as The Lamborghini Miura is my favourite.(That's The Green one if anyone did not know).

 

 You all decide for yourselves.

Lovely work!

 

A question for everyone,

 

A kit that I have been working on had some of Tamiya's masking tape left on for a long period and has I think the glue has discoloured the paint it was covering.

Apart from a respray, is there any way of undoing the damage easily?

:salute:

Not so sure if it will work on long term tape, but in short term when I have used Tamiya tape I have waited until paint is fully dry then lightly rub off glue with acrylic thinners on a soft cloth.

 

Don't try cellulose thinners though that will strip most paints off completely.

Splendid work fellas.

 

Here's another little one from me.  I managed to get one of the 1/144 I-15's from Armory and have been converting it to my one true love: the I-153

 

New cowling and modified fuselage & wings etc. etc.

And some photo etch.  Without the photos.  Or the etch... :wacko:

Can't stop now!  :happy:

 

I was pretty worried about the silver finish as I've never done a proper metallic before.  It worked out quite well though.  I used Gunze aluminium with a bit of white to get the silver doped look.  The paint covers amazingly well, so I've got heaps of the stuff left over.  Need to do some washes and add a prop, wheel doors and windscreen etc.  Probably some rigging too I suppose...  :unsure:
