  1. DAYs 4-7 I have completed the interior and am now ready to close up the fuselage. As one would expect fit was excellent!! The seat was painted in artists oil paint to replicate the leather on the real item, Wingnuts belts were used. I have always used Wingnut belts on wingnut builds, I really like them and don't feel the need to use aftermarket items in this area. Next time I should be able to show you guys an airframe!! Thanks for stopping by.
  2. Looking goog, glad to see you are still on this!
  3. DAY 3 A small update this time. The engine is complete, painted in Alclad and then given a coat of MIG neutral wash to grime it up a bit. I wired up the first 2 cylinders on the port side as these will be the only visible cylinders once the engine covers go on. I have also completed the dash. Next time I hope to have the internals together and get the fuselage halves together. thanks for looking in.
  4. Thanks guys!! on to DAY 2 I have painted much of the interior, After undercoating with Tamiya rattle can fine surface primer all parts got a solid coat of SMS black followed by Alclad aluminium. Hairspray was applied prior to Gunz RLM 02 then the 02 was chipped. Details were picked out with tamiya enamel. A light wash with Mig neutral wash finished up the parts. Cables added from lead wire More to follow, thanks for stopping in.
  5. Awesome research and modelling, looking forward to seeing this and of course more jousting between Sean and Brick!
  6. I have been busy with several large complex builds and realised that time was getting away from me with our local model show fast approaching. I searched the stash for a quick project that I could complete in time and challenged myself to actually finish something in time.......Oh look something shiny!! Focus Simpson I told myself and ended up choosing what I hope to be a project that fits the bill. 1, Quality kit that will actually fit together. 2. Simple air frame. 3. Cool looking. Here is what I went for. And here is the particular scheme. DAY 1 Full of enthusiasm I have removed the major sub-assemblies from the trees and cleaned them up in preparation for reaching for the glue. As WNW kits have very tight tolerances, I have taped up the mating surfaces prior to priming and paint. Back soon with day 2 (with luck!!)
  7. Super! This is a list that I have been on for a long time! Will be worth the wait!
  8. Cheers mate! The green is MRP 227, FS34227. It comes with the MRP IAF box set but is also available individually. Cheers Brent
  9. Looks great!! I am fortunate to be able to see this in person, great photos allow the rest of the world to admire this great build!
  10. Cheers mate! I used the Isradecal stencils which are great. In 1973 the IAF used english stencils, for later aircraft Kurnass 2000 etc use hebrew stencils. The Isradecal stencils come "grouped" so lots of stencils in the same area can be placed at the same time, this is a good idea but leaves large areas of carrier film to eliminate so I ended up cutting up a lot of them and placing them individually. Cheers Brent
  11. Stencil twice!! After I stuffed the first clear coat! Thanks for the comments guys, much appreciated!!
