  1. Alright, so this entire past week had me busy with filling and sanding the plane. It is now officially ready for airbrushing. The aluminum coat will follow up today, to reveal any final surface imperfections and other qualities. The engine middle cowling has been sanded from the inside, to give a realistic effect of a panel that is not perfectly closed and sealed. Wing roots, upper gun cowling, as well as the under-wing panels were sanded, in order to remove seams and such. The fitting between the nose cowling and the front wing roots was troublesome, but I managed to overcome with with
  2. Here are some pictures. The lighting doesn't do justice, but the detail is there Next step: joining the fuselage Tudor
  3. Alright! Here are my first progress pictures!! The kit was already started by Martin, so I'm just doing the easy parts: - filling and sanding - painting - decals More pics to follow!! Tudor
  4. Salutations, gentlemen! I come with some good news! I finished school this very last December, and managed to earn a long-awaited vacation after 4.5 years in Engineering school. I took this opportunity to finish the pending project of renovating the D-9. Since my last update, I managed to break both landing gear legs (too much handling led to the plastic failing at the joints). The model was put aside indefinitely, until a few weeks ago. The final refurbishing steps included closing the landing gear legs and covers, adding the wheels inside, to make sure that the closed landing gear po
  5. Here are some pictures of some of the progress I managed to accomplish over the last couple of weeks. As mentioned above, the rudder pedal parts have been omitted, as they broke. The fuselage interior was airbrushed with a mixture of RLM 79, 04 and 23, in different shades and different layers, respectively. The wood grain effect was simulated by using a brown crayon (borrowed from my sister ). I know this technique is rather primitive, but I am pleased with the result. Furthermore, after fitting the fuselage halves together, I noticed that barely any of the interior can be seen, anyway.
  6. Progress has been really slow, and I've been meaning to post about this a while ago. I've reached a period in time when I have no desire to build, paint, and do all that scratch-building magic that used to happen months ago. I have managed to break several pieces now: the tubes that hold the chair in the wooden frames, the vertical Y-shaped tubes that run up the oil tank, and the Y-shapped support for the rudder pedal. These happened during the process of cutting the pieces off the sprues. Also,I could not, for the life of me, bend the PE vertical seatbelts (the ones that come down from the sh
  7. Hi J, I was asking myself the very same question as I was writing that post. I cannot recall the name of the product, but I picked it up in the LHS for 6 bucks. Martinnfb has the same product, since we found it together on the shelves. I'm positive he knows the name of it. Right, Martin? Tudor
  8. Here are the pictures of the real King Tiger I was trying to replicate
  9. It was definitely factory zimmerit. Dragon did an awesome job as it, I believe. Trust me, I would not have THAT kind of patience to apply zimmerit on myown Tudor
  10. Hello everyone, I have managed to finally wrap up another project, this time being a 1/35 King Tiger from Dragon. I just finished dirtying it up even more than before, and my beloved sister helped take some pictures of this tank (she's the photography master in our family ). I figured it was time to share it with the wonderful LSP Community. The kit was built out of box, with a few additions, as you can see. The upper armor, along with the turret, was covered with a layer of Testors' Plastic Cement, after which a thick, short-haired brush was used to hit the said surface and thus rec
  11. Just as in your case, with the Mig 29 progress, the Albatros has to wait a bit, until I finish the D-9 renovation, which I can say it's about 85% done. Tudor
  12. Hello all, This is the first group build I am taking part in, and I'm really excited to take this opportunity. I'm building Wingnuts' Albatros straight Out-of-Box. The paint scheme will be the same as the box-art one. More details will follow as progress ensues! Tudor
  13. I need to calculate how much damage school tuition will do to my piggy bank, and then we'll see Tudor
  14. Am I the only one who can't see the pictures? Tudor
