Plastic Modelers in the IL-2 Community

Recommended Posts

Really hope a lot of enjoyment for you... my stash has some challenging objects too as the MIG 23MF Flogger B from Trumpeter for example.

 

Btw. I built the Tauro model of the Macchi MC 205 20 years ago... my god, very frustrating project which landed right away on the kitchen wall

just before the final touch. Hope your model won't end up like mine...

 

Cheers

Thanks for the heads up on the macchi...  :salute:

You're right it is French, it's the AMX-10RCR SEPAR (2000 update) Heavy Tank Destroyer. It was actually deployed and

used in Afghanistan and Mali - issued to regular French army and the foreign legion.

Nice bofors there Bug nice rusty chassis too.

 

Been busy on my partworks at the moment 1/8th Countach,E type Jag and testing the 1/18th 28 inches long, x wing by De Agostini too.

Will probably repaint the X wing though as paint on parts will probably not match.

 

Incidentally the spoke wheels on the E type have separate spokes and are a SOB to fit but look excellent unlike the wheels on my 1/8th DB 5.

Ki-27 Nate 1/48 Hasegawa

Great model, although the Molde is from the 80's and I had some
problems because of the antiquity of the decals, the plane itself is perfect the interiors a few, good normal
to be from the 80, but no problem to highlight ..

I managed to get hold of an old Tamiya Matilda (number 24) as I'm trying to build some models which I started but failed to complete when I was younger. Here she is, ready for a tidy up before decals and weathering. The kit was so old that the decals had turned into something resembling Tutankhamen's scrotum. Ironically I have now bought the new version for the decals!

Nice matilda and Nate there guys the weathering especially looks good.

 

Old decals are a pain to be right, sometimes decalsol can save them though.

 

Got the final parts to my Countach, the Body is all in one piece, just have to mate it with the chassis and drivetrain, put on the wheels and spoiler, polish it up, display case on order and then build another two shelves for it and the E type when that's finished in about 23 months...... sheesh!

 

But will have more time for other projects now, Hmmm? maybe its time for that 24th scale  Hawker Typhoon I got for Christmas....two years ago?.

 

E Type as it stands , already repainted engine parts as did not look too good as standard.

Requesting reference photos.

I can put some photo's of the decals up, I'm assuming you know what Tut's knackersack looks like already.

That's... small.

 

Is it coincidence or not you used that coin? Because in 1940 the Defiant came into combat action for the first time.

I was going to ask for an update on the Defiant! Just gorgeous work, Feathered. And I think he does use contemporary coins for his builds!

Hi Uufflakke, the coin was deliberate, as I quite like having something nearby from the same period for scale.  I collected a few over the years with a mind to using them alongside some other projects.  I have an especially nice 1939 one from Poland that I'd like to use with a scratchbuilt P.11c, plus a few others of various years and nationalities.

 

I managed to get the rest of the masking and painting done over the last few days and its looking a lot more defianty with the roundels on.  I discovered a useful tip while doing so that I thought I'd pass on:  If you mount several tiny parts on the end of a brush handle for painting - don't absently pick up that same brush a few minutes later and use it to stir a pot of paint...  :dash:

Not quite finished and I'm not sure I'm too happy with the result, but at least I have another one to have a go at now!

Damn!  That looks fantastic.  I can't imagine what you wouldn't be happy with.  The finish looks spot on.  Particularly the darkening along the edges of the of the hull where the crew have been clambering about.  It looks like they are going to emerge at any moment and have a cuppa char.

I am impressed with how "Western Desertish" your background looks.  Wadi Brikn Morta.  (The Matilda looks terrific as well).

I see everyones been busy , great work done by all :)

 

Like the matilda , weathering is just about right in my opinion. Tank commander looks good, im pants at figures that`s why you never see any with my armour lol.

 

That Countach must have cost a fair few quid m8.

 

I see the mini defiant is not far of now . :)

 

Peashooter looks great.... :)

Im painting tiger wheels at the moment...... theirs loads of them but been using a trick i found on a modelling site , Paint the black rubber parts first then use one of those circular stencil templates to paint the wheels, its a lot more precise and a lot quicker. :)
