    Sounds like Australia or thereabout.

    Ok, so applying these to the tail fin was not easy for someone with Parkinson. And the other small decals was a bit difficult too. The job is finished finally and no big disasters, except a few markings omitted and one or two being erroneous. (the tyre size markings got the wrong dimensions) I used a mix of decals from Revell, Trumpeter and Cutting Edge. I have a Hasegawa sheet too but I save that one for the K-4 variant I have half finished. Next step is to spray a protecting layer of varnish over the whole thing. Maybe two. Thanks for looking!

    Not pleased with the surface finish i decided to just go on with applying decals. If there is no silvering all is good. Black crosses on aluminium looks really good, I think. I have played around with some washes already.

    Cute Porsche tiger. Scheming.

    The novelty of building my favorite subjects eventually wore off once I got myself an Airbrush. Nowadays my main priority is to improve my skills. For that reason I am looking for your input on matters of subject, camo schemes, Techniques and materials, etc. I may also make a small base to put it on, so ideas for that are also welcome.

    I am not very happy with my paint job. The edges of the camo fields are to fuzzy, but that is because I did it free hand. That is how many do it so I wanted to try that. I figure I would have gotten better result with thinner paint, lower pressure and keep closer to the surface. It would also be nice with a backstop on the AB. Anyway here is where I am and the possible markings. White 4 has the advantage of a plain spinner. Since this is supposed to be an in - flight model that makes things a little easier. I have not decided yet. Ps. The mottling is inspired by Anders Hjortsbergs' profiles. I may tone them down a bit by Rlm76.

    I intend to finish all my builds I have started threads about, and this one is currently active again. The build is an opportunity to test pre-shading so I may be a little carefree in execution. Ever since I paused the build i was not satisfied with the black Primer. I feared it would not be good for the colours making them unrealistically dark. With an Airbrush this is easy to fix and so I lightened it all up a little with some medium grey. Another first is to try use the right pressure and mixture. I would have done so long before but I suppose I didn't trust the manometer of my cheap tank. Maybe I owe the Chinese an apology. I have started applying Gunze Rlm 76 and 75 today (properly mixed 50/50 with rubbing alcohol). Next is the complementary late war green. Probably tomorrow. Funny thing is that I haven't decided on a Decal scheme yet. Sorry for the long delay, folks. ;-)

    Open Canopy help sought

    Use a sanding stick at an angle along the canopy edge. This give you more surface area for the glue to stick to

    1/32 HS293?

    Did the French use the combination operationally? Or was it just a test?
