  1. I'm still amazed how good the painted pattern looks on the cowling. I wouldn't have thought about using for this effect buffable metalizer . Brilliant! Love the weathering! Superb build!
  2. I'll keep my fingers crossed for this one! Sending your way some good vibes:) Looks like a very good start, Hubert. Model on!
  3. Yup! The paint definately helped! Can't wait for more colour though Keep us updated, Martin. Pleasure to follow.
  4. The turret looks mighty good, Martin! Will look better with some paint on it!
  5. I didn't think you could up your game after what you showed us with your Mercedes D.III. I was wrong, Wolf. This is even more amazing, and it's not even finished! Tons stuff to learn! Thanks for sharing!!!
  6. Looks super cool, Zak. Nice detailing!
  7. Time to start a new project ... The Cub has to wait a little bit longer. I promised this one to a friend, and I don't have much time, so I'll be trying cut corners whenever possible. The idea is to take a paper kit, improve it if desired and feasible, and replace more time consuming details with plastic parts. I'm thinking specifically about using Wingnut Wings Mercedes D. IIIau engine, Gaspatch Spandau 08/15 machine gun and Gaspatch turnbuckles. This ought to save me some time (or that's what I hope will happen ). Problem is I don't have any experience with plastic models - this will be de
  8. I couldn't say it better than Budman. Mark, your persistence, patience, attention and joy of research is exemplary. The results speak for themselves! Love what you have done so far. Great details!
  9. I'm so happy to see this project proceeding successfully, Peter! I must say though that the paper kit role here is more and more minimal, as you improve, hack and detail your work. But that's all good! Love your work man!!
  10. Thank you Harvey. Mark, pictures don't tell all the truth about the model. You too generous. I'm glad you like it, though!
  11. Kevin, thank you very much! Martin, thanks! I still have a lot of work on basic techniques. I'm really relieved the project is done and I can move on to something else. Loic, I really appreciate it! Peter, thanks for the compliments! I wish I could see your work in person one day. Maybe some occasion will arise. Planning to attend any contests in the area? Not so laud Gil! I would like to keep my pretenses But seriously, I'm glad you like the Chaf. Means a lot. There is plenty of room for improvements, and I hope I can model better.
  12. Loic, Mark - thank you for your kind comments! Ufff! The Chaf is finally done! What a relief . I wish you could see me gluing the last part - I was happy as a 3 year old. It was good experience overall. I learn few things, had plenty of setbacks (I stop counting how many times I had to reattached parts). The tank even survived two drops! The kit itself has it's shortcomings, I added few more, but in the end I think it looks decent. Thank you for all of you who chipped in with your advice, encouragement and positive feedback! Nothing was ignored. Even if I did not follow some of your su
  13. I don't see a lot of reasons to be so hard on yourself, Mark. The engine looks very good to my eye! Nice trick with braided sheathing. Looks super convincing on thicker lines! Will try to remember that. More please!
  14. One of the best Corsairs I've seen. Looking really sharp and vicious with this weathering! Oh man, can't stop ogling her! Fantastic build, Matt!
  15. The bay looks great, Peter! Too cool!!!
  16. Thanks guys! Thanks Matt for the stencil suggestion. I'm not surprised I haven't thought about - after all it's a plastic modeling technique . I'll give it a try! Thinking about arrangement of all the equipment. I wasn't able to reproduce well tow cable myself, so I ordered one. Package on the way. The net was inspired by re-watching TV series Band of Brothers
  17. Well, we all can see the cockpit on your photos, so it's definitely not lost effort. Looks superb!
  18. Superb build, Kevin She looks fantastic. I may even buy the issue of AIR Modeller just to see your article! Pretty cool!
  19. Thanks for your warm comments Taffy, thanks for looking in. Yeah, I could use Photoshop, but I'm really out of touch with the new version - last one I used was 2 or something. For now, I'm commited to learn Corel. I just found that in the Corel suit there is a module, Photo-Paint, that have similar functionality as Photoshop. I wanted to do some overspray of the lettering on the crates and Photo-Paint may just do the trick. I'll try to update with improved creates when done. I may try as well some stains, etc. Maru, maybe tweaking finger prints would work, but I don't know if I could
  20. Thank you guys for all kind comments! They are really appreciated. Maru ... Maru ... Soon I'll try to come back to this project, at least for a while. I have something coming that gets the priority, but I would like to move forward this build a little. Don't worry, I tend to finish what I start, I just take a lot of time
  21. Thanks Kevin! Forgot one more detail: footprints. I tried to simulate Combat M1943 boot's tread prints, but without much success.
  22. Fantastic build! Weathering and finish is just superb! There is this class of modelers, whose builds invite a viewer's eye to get closer and closer to reveal more and more incredible details. Close-ups only enhance the experience not ruin them. You one of such masters, Tristan!
  23. Looking good! The interior is very impressive, I must say. Pleasure to the eye!
