  2. Really nice finish on this Chris. I dare you (think nose art) take to ODO 2021.
  3. Hey Chuck a great start on this. Love the rescribing and pit work. Ace Maker gyroscope gunsight. If you happen to have Roy's BR32011 Spitfire Upgrade Part II this has the Ace Maker gunsight as well as Barr & Stroud. I swiped the Ace Maker. Trust me, this gunsight is a little gem. This is Roys Acemaker Gyro gunsight i used om my Mk.V Tempest. I used the supplied SH PE reflector shade. Go to my WIP page 3 and scroll down for more build details. Also check how I worked the wheel well fit my WIP page 2 there will be issues when you fit completed wing to fuselage...well at lest for me. I assembled all the wheel well parts on the upper wing in lieu of instructions calling out assembly on lower portion.
  4. Appreciate the kudos Brian. Double cheers to you Maru. Best to you Mark.
  5. I see stuff like this and I feel my efforts are minuscule. Once in awhile I take a long look at my SOD 1:32 Planet conversion 190C and for a brief moment feel inspired to bring it to the bench. Made lots of build decisions and I realize how much of mine is incorrect. I'm using artistic license while you are executing an aero engineering approach. When and if I do finish my 190C I'll pass on close up photos. I'm geeking out on the engineering and exquisite detail on this. Your approach to exhaust build has solved a "how am I gonna make this sucker fit?" issue on my 190C. Thank you. A joy to watch. Bravo.
  6. A 30 day group build with our local club. I did not finish in 30 days. This was about a 40 day build. Fastest I have ever completed a kit, ever! Build details: Revell P47M #04185 (I know P47M did not serve RAF SEAC, just don't look at the engine or cockpit too closely. And the kit cost $5) Out of Box build Drilled out Blast Tubes MRP used through out with exception of Alclad for Drop tanks and Gunze for Interior Green and Chromate Yellow colors. Cockpit detail picked out with Vallejo Model Color Decals from Eduard Aussie Eight Spitfire kit Tamiya FX86 Flat Clear overall Here's the WIP link. Enjoy.
  7. Panel line wash added then sealed Tamiya XF86 Flat Clear thinned with Mr. Leveling Thinner 1:1. Exhaust stain with MiG Industrial Dirt powder. Turbine and Flight hood get a shot of Alclad 123 Exhaust Manifold. Cordite stains is highly thinned Tamiya X19 Clear Smoke. Remember, less is more. Powder effects sealed with mineral spirits then overall sealed sealed with XF86. Locator pins for drop tanks are .5mm aluminum rod. Landing gear installed followed by racks and drop tanks.
  8. Test fit engine/cowling. Decals applied straight on the MRP paint surface, no gloss decal prep. Effort was flawless with no silvering. Underside decal work completed. Marking were borrowed from Eduard Aussie Eight decal sheet. Recognition lights are kit decals. Gloss varnish overall to begin weathering. Gloss is Tamiya X22 clear and Mr. Leveling Thinner 1:1 ratio using my PS290 ProCon Boy with .5mm equipped with fan nozzle.
  9. Underside masked MRP 108 Dark Earth is applied to topsides. First covering is marbled, then... blended. My Iwata airbrush photobomb is due to maintenance effort. MRP110 Dark Green applied. Marbled then blended. Masking removed.
  10. ID Stripes. I'm doing a RAF SEAC scheme with Dark Earth/Dark Green/Med Sea Gray camo. This scheme will also be used when I get to my 1:32 TAM Mossie, hopefully before the apocalypse. Another element which drew me to this scheme are the white ID Bands. No only for the look but for the challenge to replicate. Using MRP 135 White the ID Bands are first marbled. The cowling got some ID Band love as well. Then blended. The camera really blew up the white, it's not that solid. After full paint cure I mask the ID Bands. Medium Sea Gray MRP 112 marbling begins. Med Sea Gray blended. After cure will mask undersides to begin upper camouflage.
  11. one of my favorite Cold War aircraft. great finish on this.
  12. Closing things up. Fuselage buttoned up and wings glued in place. A little sanding and scribing. Masking cockpit and wheel wells complete and little more surface prep. After breaking blast tubes off multiple times I've folded some paper and taped to tings to protect further breakage. Black from the attack. After primer Gunze Finishing Surfacer 1500 Black cures will begin masking for ID bands.
