  1. Iirc the wings where built and painted separately, so going for standards pattern and colours, for the type, would not be wrong.
  2. Given the popularity of the subject, the advanced technology available for design, production and distribution... I can't see there will not be a new kit released in the future. Maybe not from ZM, maybe not as complex, but could be even better!
  3. I think Saab hit gold with this cooperation.
  4. The South Africans got one, iirc.
  5. I notice PB have cut the resolution of the pictures:/ Guess I have to resume my search for an alternatve host.
  6. Made attachment points for the bombs today.
  7. I think there is one in the monogram books, both large and small. That is the Luftwaffe colours book and the me 262 close up. I got them on pdf if you need them.
  8. Looks like brown oils over ochre base.
  9. Obviously a Hughes aircraft corporation project.
  10. Thank you guys! You pointed me in a good direction!
  11. So, anyone got tips for modelling on the go?
  12. So, some progress. Applying the classic tail band. Gunze white acrylic, but it turned out to be lighter than the cross on the fin, which is basically a primer. No big deal. It is hard to notice. Adding the fasces. They are 1/48 Scale and are too small. Hmmmm. Maybe I got bigger ones somewhere. Note to self. Scrounge bombs. I am happy with the result so far, but I worry about weathering. I'll think I will use the sponge technique. Thanks for looking!
  13. I can add that I didn't bother with any fading because that would mean trying to find a proper colour in my drawer, rather than just adding white to the base (something not possible with this spray can.) I still fell I need some weathering to be done, perhaps by sponge? I just found out about photobuckets watermark. Something will have to be done about that.
  14. Another commission for a friend. It is basically a toy that I have modded, or destroyed, depending how you see it. Getting rid of the wings simplified things a bit. Primer is some powerful plastic Primer i bought specifically for this project. (The toy is not exactly made of styrene but some other plastic i suspected could cause trouble.) On top of that i should perhaps have used white overall, but for some reason I only used it on the fin to make markings. Instead I sprayed on Citadel 'Zandri Dust' directly from the can. It didn't cover well and i had to apply many layers of paint to get an opaque surface. I tested new 0.2mm needle and nozzle in my Iwata Neo when painting the mottles. It originally is an 0.35mm AB but I bought spare parts on ebay to make on unofficial upgrade. It worked reasonably well, but then the paint was Gunze RLM82 light grun IIRC. Good paint that. The panel wash is just earth oil colour. Next session I will clean that upp.
  15. I use rubbing alcohol to remove future clear from my canopies (when I need to redo it). It works really well. So "-computer says: no" to any alcohol on futured surfaces
