    Mojo gone missin...

    I can usually feel what's draggin me down modeling wise - so I try to do something else I'm not trying to tell you how you feel, but if for instance you're tired of superdetailing and scratchbuilding (not impossible when I know you :-) ) then possible solutions are: - Strictly OOB (and stick with the OOB !!) - Build a car, a ship, a figure, a target (aka tanks) - Something really goofy like an egg-plane Often doing something else makes me less obsessive and it can actually feel like a vacation Hope you get it back Also - come around for a cup of coffee Thomas

    Real space kits

    Hi I've been considering building either a space shuttle (with tank and boosters) or a Saturn V... or perhaps both :-) you know how it is But I haven't got a clue which kits are good and which are better left alone Anyone got some experience ? Not too partial towards scale - just gotta be good kits Thanks Thomas

    The Gladiator had me smiling big time, but when I reached the Devastator that turned to a frown... (goddammit)
  6. So... this is the one I've decided to enter. Ï started this a few years ago but it ground to a halt pretty early. I counted 40 parts involved in what I've done, so out of the kits 514 (not even counting the extra's) then it's 8%... that should be ok I guess. I plan to do a Corsican B-25. I've always liked the combination of camo over the NMF finish and apart from that I've always had a thing for the covers of Squadrons In Action books. On the cover of my is 'Peggy Lou' of the 445BS, 321BG that completed an impressive 129 missions - and I've always wanted to do that one Note that the artwork is actually not correct, I'll show that later. For this I've collected for this build: The Kit - looks great in the box: A liiiitle bit of PE And a little resin What I've already done is the engine basic structures (2 x 9 parts), wings (2 x 2 parts), nacelles (2 x 2 parts) and tail section (14 parts) So that's it - off we go

    And by the way - is there no way around fitting the gear legs so early ???

    Hong Kong Models B-25J bomber 'Peggy Lou'

    Ok - finally got a little done yesterday. Focusing on putting in all the PE that needs priming and painting. Perhaps a bit hard to see, but a lot of work here. Also washed the engines. Still need some flat varnish and attachement of exhausts that I left off since I suppose they are best weathered alone. I can see from the other B-25 threads that the prop is no good, so that will be something more I need to get along with some master barrels. But I am still torn with regards to the gear legs... I think the legs seem sturdy, at least the main legs. Kent said he drilled it out (how far down ??) and I am summoning the courage to do that... I am not a big fan of those metal legs since I think they often look worse than the kit parts. Still thinking
  9. With my entry in the Multi engine group build being full of etch addition, I just knew that I would need a distraction without all the trouble, so I went to the stash to pull out a trouble free build. This one caught my eye Ok opening the box I found it wasn't completely OOB, but somehow I like to do PE flaps. The weels should be no problem I will be doing it in the colours of Walter Nowotny - second from the bottom. Classic - I always liked that scheme

    Hasegawa Fw190A-5 Walter Nowotny

    Oops #1 - this build, which was supposed to be my safetyvalve for the massively etch B-25 project, got a little too much attention while the B-25 did not Oops #2 - too few pictures But quite a bit has happened. Working on sorting out seams etc after main assembly. Plan to be a good boy now and focus on the B-25

    Hasegawa Ju87G Kanonenvogel - a bit of progress!

    I have the same kit and although Rudel's look fantastic in winter wash, I will be avoiding that bastards plane. There are several other well documented kanonenboot's. A friend of mine found data for another ace in the 87G but unfortunately no picture. Think I will be doing that one anyway. I'm traveling now, so dont have access to the info, but if you are interested I can find it when I come home later this week...

    I tried Ushi's 'original' wood decals and it worked out great - I expect the new version to be better still...

    Yeah - planning to do that. Would be a pity to put all the other stuff in and then let it down with sub-standard guns

    Impressive work Iain !! Quite a few interesting builds in the GB, but so far this and Tom's Sunderland take the prize for me Only down side is that I know that if I ever get this kit I will have to do the same... that's how it is with the He219 in my stash, I almost dread the day I'll drag it out :-)

    Just a little done tonight... Fitted engine with rocker covers and ignition harness (a lot of them). Still needs to be weathered. Also started to fold some of Eduards corrected Pilot and co-pilot seat

    The Swamp Ghost - B-17E 41-2446

    Excellent choice of topic for sure. Looks great so far - very very nice wood on the desk. Did you notice Eduard/Brassin has done some resin .50 cal belts which seems very nice. I got a couple for my B-25. Perhaps you can find a couple of places where they will do some good These https://www.super-hobby.com/products/Ammo-belts-12-7-mm-22368679.html

    Lovely - I love the recent surge of toon kits. I have just finished a P-40 toon and have a 109 and a T-34 in the stash... so much fun they are
