  1. well that's my latest project stuffed then... 1/32 he162 on a 1/35 railway gondola
  2. just getting all the AM and scratch stuff together. replacement cockpit back and seat with kit part to compare undercarriage bay set to check for placement etc Eduard PE profiled. These should go underneath but I've reversed them as they'll show on the open top section. No turning back now! removed all the wing and engine section as per pic.
  3. Looks like another exciting and enjoyable build. Following along.
  4. Found the photo that inspired me
  5. New little sideline project whilst waiting for paint to dry/things to arrive on the Liberator. Spent the afternoon assembling the railway gondola to check the He162 fitted!
  6. I sanded the belts off then replaced with a Radub set.
  7. thanks Brian Looking at my pics I can now see I need a 'reverse' paint method for the worn floor in the radio room. The worn parts are in the grooves rather than on top of the runners. Dull interior green first, then chipping fluid, zinc chromate and white aluminium. That should then give the wear to the top not the bottom. Learning new stuff everyday.
  8. great kit, just be careful of the amount of weight to keep it down. I recall my build had 300 grams in it.
  9. Instrument panel done. Still need to add more details to centre console and add all the switches to both panel and console plus controls etc.
  10. Mr Surfacer 1500 black. Mr Paint white aluminium again Then dull interior green over ak scratch effects
  11. So we've finally got to putting some paint down! Mr metal primer for the pe bits followed by gloss black for the decal side and Matt black for the front side. Decal applied and gunze clear coat on top. Front panel with Mr paint dull interior, bronze interior and standard interior. Floor given a coat of Mr paint white aluminium followed by Matt clear. AK scratch/worn effects then zinc primer and dull green /standard interior green. Tooth pick and stiff brush with water. Panel test fit Back plate is not attached. Just to see the effect. Dark brown wash to add some depth/grime. Pretty happy with the overall effect. Added more paintwork to the panel and need to add more details to console etc.
  12. Finally managed to grab an hour at the bench. Assembled the tail section just because I needed to feel as if the build was moving. Then started on the airscale instrument panel. I must say the fit and design is spot on. Need to get some paint down before long. Really enjoying the build but want to get it some textures and details down
  13. Lovely model and images. Like the use of grey and rlm02 on the interior. Works really well for wear and tear.
  14. Just ordered 2 cons 1 emerson. thank you
