  1. Great job! Miloslav, could you take a close up photo of the rivets? I am still considering to buy them for P-47 so I hope your photos will help me to take a decision. Thanks
  2. John, google translator said that means "additional panel line". I found this pic in JaPo book, this additional line is visible:
  3. Magic! Great reference material for future model build. Thank you!
  4. Chuck, Those rivets are mushroom head rivets (snap head) and the are used to join rear area of the fuselage in early version of Spitfire (from Mk.I to Mk.V). As you said this Spitfire on the pictures is early version. Later Spitfires versions (from Mk.IX) had countersunk head rivets. So rivets in your model (Mk.IX) won't be so visible. Regards
  5. Hi My friend is working on Ju-88C-6 C9+AE model now.Camuflage scheme is nachtjager pilot Prinz zu Sayn Wittgenstein. He has a problem with colors of stains on the fuselage. He show me this photo: http://4.bp.blogspot...ory marking.jpg there are a lot of stains on camuflage. What kind of color these are? Many publications write that this is the same color RLM 74 or RLM 75, main color under the stains was RLM 76. But I found a plastic model where the stains are RLM 74 and 75 together: http://www.facebook....84350370&type=3 What do you think about it? Which scheme is good? I will a
  6. Hi thanks a lot, for your comments. I know that paper modeling is a little exotic for you AceofClubs I wrote a few things about wathering in my other topics: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=36079 http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=36078 as i said, I use the same techniques wathering like plastic modelers: oil paints, postshading, wash etc. Paper shapeing is not so simple, a lot of paper modelers. many modelers learns that throughout their life, me too. We are watching a lot of build raports and learn from them. Just as plastic modelers! E
  7. I forgot about pictures of cockpit. Here was all painted, because I added many elements
  8. retro photos Thanks for watching, I hope you like it!
  9. Hi, I want to show my next model, it is a Messerschmitt Bf-109 F-4 from Libya in 1942. Halinski Publishing 1:33 scale like always. Model is not painted of course, just wash and marks of use, typical for this aircraft, suggested by images of II World War.
  10. Hi Matt I think that Tomek showed you this gallery, but it is worth to other users to see the end result building of the model to which it is modeled. Paper Helldiver by pawel_k: http://www.papermodels.pl/index.php?topic=8693.0 Regards Peter
  11. It is exactly as OldTroll says. I dont paint the whole model, I do it inside the fuselage and cockpit, but only if I add something, like wires or more instruments, which did not provide the model designer, and I found them in the technical documentation or photographs. I-16 is nowhere painted (only the white edges of elements formed from paper cutouts), the Hawker Hurricane is painted the entire interior and cockpit. The whole camouflage and markings in both models are printed by the publisher. I think that painting the entire paper aircraft models is pointless, because you are painted imitat
  12. Thanks a lot for the worm welcome to the forum! Jack all parts in this model are done from paper. Only supporting truss and wires are done from steel and cooper wires. There is no plastic part. Unfortunately I do not have any photos that showed the interior to the model before painting. But I'm working now on the Supermarine Spitfire Mk 1:33 the concept of construction is the same as the Hawker Hurricane, and it looks like that before painting: and after painting and wash: To build all of this I use a scale airplane drawings, pictures from books and the Internet. Then I draw
  13. thank you for the warm welcome to the forum! That is a paper model, but to achieve this effect, uses a plastic model airplane techniques, such as wash. In addition, the model is covered before several layers of acrylic clear coat and lightly sanded to obtain a smooth surface. I believe that no matter what techniques, but most important is the final result. And this is what plastic modellers show is an excellent lesson in painting and application service marks of the aircraft. And this is the reason why I like forums like this. Regards Peter
