    Revell 1/32 UH-1D Huey and Dragon crew

    I was debating on doing that very thing. I have a pair of washes I can choose from that should do the trick. Thanks a bunch! Lee

    Rotors and all glass in place. Just a few minor pairing details to add and some small rotor head pieces to attach. Then add the gear and mount in the base. Will be all done by Thursday night. Entering it in the IPMS Cincinnati show on Saturday and then presenting it on Sunday. Later, Lee

    Finished the Dragon figures for the UH-1 Huey. I struggle with figures especially flesh tones but I’m getting better. The clipboard turned out pretty respectable. I still have to add the left forearm of my friend’s father but that’s it. Later, Lee

    A few more pics. I added the metal support bars using an aluminum rod. Here are a few shots outside after adding pigments and exhaust stains. Crew has their base color painted and I hope to wrap them up later this week. Later, Lee

    Thank you Troy, Danny and Brian for your kudos. Got to it last night and tonight. It’s weathered and added aluminum rod on either side where the gunner sits at the door. Made a clipboard for the co-Pilot too. Here’s a few pics... Later, Lee

    Update! I got the tail repainted, added the replacement decals (Thank you again, Jack!) and have it ready to weather now. Also finalized the crew and my friend’s father (standing by the pilot's door). Removed the remaining masking and painted the upper windows translucent green (not glued into place yet). Later, Lee

    Airfix 1/24 Spitfire Mk.I

    Got things a bit closer together in the cockpit. Eduard Seatbelts are on order. Added odds and ends from my OE spares to give some added details. Later, Lee

    Airfix 1/24 Spitfire Mk.I

    Tuesday I discovered that I was out of RAF cockpit green. Seeing as how the nearest hobby shop that carries it is over 80 miles away I decided to sleep on it and tonight I improvised. I mixed up Compucolor’s Pale Green and Dark Sea Grey. I’m pretty pleased...good enough for me! Later, Lee

    Back to working on this project. The radiator area is lacking so I busted out the wire mesh and tools of destruction and voila! More to come, Lee What I started with: What I wound up with:

    Wow what a shame. This is a real loss to our community. Saddened, Lee

    Thank you, Troy, for your service and for that information. I had not yet got to that point about the soot and exhaust. Your info is very helpful. Thank you very much for the kudos and kind words. Sincerely, Lee

    So I took the opportunity last night to mock up my figure of my friend's dad. Took me parts from six different figures to get to this point. This is the 1st time I have ever cut up and created my own figure (in any scale). I'm pleased. It's not going to be 100% spot-on but good enough. Now to clean him up and modify him. Later, Lee My attempt...

    Well, I started weathering it last night. I chose to do the boom in its entirety. My dot filter went pretty well. Very well, actually. But when I laid down the AK Interactive wash it made a mess of things. So much so that I am trying to track down replacement decals for the boom area as I will reshoot it OD and start over. ARGH! Bummed and frustrated, Lee After blending the dot filter... Then the wash...ugh!

    Thank you! It's an oldie for sure but looks the part. I was jazzed to get the decals to work. The main decal sheet I used was the RoG sheet from 2000. I original Revell sheet from 1982 gave up the Danger arrows. I used the rivets to rub the old glue off of those decals LOL! It worked! Lots of Solvaset though. What worked best was to apply some on the area where the decal was being placed, then, once centered, press hard to get the air bubbles out. Then, I would re-coat the decal with more Solvaset and make any slits needed to get the trapped air out. Later, Lee

    Well, with some prodding and LOTS of Solvaset the decals are all on and the Dullcote laid down. I will be adding the specific airframe number with dry transfers as I did not have the right numbers in decal form. Overall I am happy with it so far. The decals were going to 'make or break' the appearance. Now to add the windows and the weathering. Once that is done then I'll paint the crew and come up with a suitable base. Later, Lee
