Looking good, love the 109 and especially the unusual markings on your Shoki.

No luv for the 109? :(

 

;)

Thanks Andy.

 

Would you believe I was spraying the wheel wells of the Shoki at 2.00 am?

 

As for the markings, there's only 6. So an easy job. My plan is where possible, to place any aeroplane in markings other than that of the country of origin. French markings for a Bearcat, Aussie for a P40, British for a 109 etc.

 

That's my plan to be original anyway.

 

As one wise soul once said: "If you can't be good, be different."

 

 

 

nice paint work :popcorn:

Thanks Mark. I owe a great deal to the members here at the site. I'm still fumbling my way through. Wolf Harvey and Kev all helped me yesterday with a question I had on the subject. :)

 

It's now 6.46 am. First thing to do is finish my very strong coffee, have a shower and then wipe of the excess wash from Shaka, the triceratops. Saw my Shoki G Factor legs and paint them....

 

I am then going to put an exhaust stain on the Shoki using pastels. So far it has a very light airbrushed stain. I have a photo on my PC of a Shoki with a very heavy stain over natural metal. I wish to replicate that. I am curious to note the difference pastels makes compared to the airbrushed stain on the 109.

 

It's teeming with rain outside so I've no plan other than to model. I need to also find some 109 parts for my Hasegawa K4 and G14. I cannot find the pits. They are in a box somewhere.... :)

 

Work continues on those 109 builds. I love Japanese aeroplanes so much I got a little sidetracked. :)

Hi guys.

 

Work has slowed down considerably. Problems with the brain. Seeing a neurologist soon. I've not been posting as a result. I leave this message because a member was concerned. I am okay. Just unsure where my brain went. :D

 

The 109 is being ever so slowly decaled. The Shoki is being aged to match a photo I found on Pinterest. And Shaka the dinosaur is also slowly coming along.

Thanks Martin. Coming from you it means a lot.

 

I masked and painted the 109 canopy only to discover I had not cleaned away the point where the sprue attached. I hope to do so today.

 

I've also been working slowly on the George and when tired the 109's. I've been putting harnesses together. I've yet to get the dimensions correct though. And I've misplaced my late war green Luftwaffe harness. It'll be here somewhere.

 

I am happy to say I found my missing 109 cockpits. :)

 

Today I hope to mask and paint the Shoki canopy.

 

I reckon we need an all inclusive Bf109 thread. People such as yourself and Jay could then add their ideas. I tried to PM Jay with a 109 question some time ago but his PM box was full. And let's face it, the 109 is extremely popular. Quite possibly my all time favourite aircraft.

 

I just got another E4 by Dragon off ebay. The price was such I could not pass it up. :D

 

I now have 17 109's! :D

 

Compare that with two Spitfires and 3 Zeros. :)

I've just learned how to properly use Alclad.

 

Looking at the Shoki my mind says to itself, "KMN!!!!!" :D

 

The difference between Alclad and the Gunze master metals is astonishing. The Gunze looks like paint. The Alclad looks like metal. I am converted! :)

Love this stuff,  Dale. You have 109 fever. The cure? More 109's! 

 

Sure would like a rainy day to model. Have a good one.
