    Mostly WWII aircraft but lately have looked at some more modern military jets and even some Sci-Fi craft. Seemed to have migrated to German WWII aircraft and Vietnam-era planes.

  1. I'll be patiently waiting! I just did the Italeri Starfighter as well, mostly as a diversion - in flight so no landing gear, got to paint the pilot figures. That is a LONG plane!!! Good luck!
  2. Buying Kevin's book is a must. I have it and it was EXTREMELY helpful, definitely worth it. I think there are two big problem areas to address with the Revell kit, and then some detail places where you can play. I've built two of the Tamiya and two of the Revell Mustangs. For the Revell builds Passion Wagon is my latest build and I also did Lou IV if you want to take a look at those. Problem areas: 1. The canopy and windscreen needs to be replaced, and the Tamiya canopies fit ok but you will need the Revell piece at the back of the canopy since that is one area
  3. Thank you Mike M! Much appreciated! Thanks Mike! So, when are we going to see yours, my friend?!
  4. Thank you and good to hear from you Maru! Hope your trip is going well, or is this a more permanent relocation? Any time to build?? Chris
  5. Ok, finally moved this over to the RFI thread. Sorry that took so long! Thanks for following along. Chris
  6. FINALLY! Sorry for the huge delay. This one has been done for a while, but I've been neglecting the photo side of things. Here are a few now that she's in the case... You can find the build thread here. The replacement Eduard resin spinner and prop arrived (well, the new spinner and baseplate) so I had to alter the already-glued props to the hub to make the prop diameter wider to clear the wider spinner. I didn't quite get the spacing right on one of the props... BUT! I did finally get the spinner properly painted! And yes, the main gear doors are UP. Little bits of re
  7. Super nice build! Great work on the paint, but the weathering underneath is next-level - super job! Chris
  8. Brian, just gorgeous, as well as the photography. Wow!! Chris
  9. I've had pretty good experience with Hobbyworld - just that it can take a while to get shipments from them. But they always do arrive.
  10. Here you go! This is the 1/48 Eduard Bf 109G-6 kit. I used my new Grex Tritium TG with the .2mm needle, and MRP paints, out of the bottle and not thinned, sprayed at about 6 psi. This gave me a LOT of control of the paint spraying and the ability to get very close to the plastic to keep the shapes tight. The base layer is MRP as well. I went over a few of the spots a few times to add color density or change the shape a bit. The pattern on the both sides of the fuselage is very different on Barkhorn's machine. I didn't get it perfect, but hopefully close enough.
  11. SprueBrothers in the US (and I assume if you are ordering from Hobbyworld you are in the US) has a pretty good stock of MRP. That is who I've been ordering from for the past year and they have been fast and reliable. They do not have everything, but seem to have a better stock than Hobbyworld. I'm delighted with MRP. I did a 1/48 Spitfire in Med theater colors and the paint is amazing. Working on a 1/48 Bf-109G-10 and just did the camo splotches, shooting at 6psi, straight out of the bottle. Amazing stuff. CN
  12. Gaz, THANK you for this thread! I'm building the Eduard kit right now and ran into a painting question on the yellow oil cooler panel - which I'll follow your example on the -6 Erla. I do like the Eduard kit and also picked up the -10 Overtrees since I now have a bunch of decals. They may not be completely accurate for a -10, but it will do. Thanks again for all of your comments and insights. Happiest of holidays to you and yours! Hope you and all are well and safe. Best, Chris
  13. And to you, too, Maru! I hope you and the family are well - stay safe. And to the rest of the LSP gang - Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! Let's hope 2021 is much better than 2020 and we finally are able to get back together again. Chris
