  1. Thanks Ernest, I think the white wash turned out well due to it not being white....thats to say I mixed some brown and blue into it to give it a chilly feel. As above, white never looks right, a few drops of brown and blue give it that feel. High praise there Chuck, thank you so much for it, much appreciated.
  2. Hello all, keep in safe I hope. Well this Ju-87 was started at the same time as my 109 (1/32 Bf109E White 13 'Another sortie done' - Ready for Inspection - Large Scale Planes) due to the hope that I would be getting some nice wintery weather as a back drop for the photos........but sadly like 2020 its self, it didnt work out! So, onto the plane, it went together very well without any fit issues at all and painted with Gunze paints. No after market pieces except some homemade seat belts and then weathered with oils. Ok, some might reckon its over done but t
  3. Thanks Gazzas, I used to to have a lot of trouble blending oils like you but I found it was due to not have a good matt surface for the oils to grip to. Start small and build the colours up, for this I use small eye make-up applicator sponges which you can buy cheaply on ebay.
  4. Thanks for the kind comment Kev, It's Trumpeter's kit 02288 Black n white you say.... How's that?
  5. Hello all, this is my little attempt at another 109. I've been trying to expand my techniques with this one and a few of the experiments have worked pretty well.....i think?! For the first i have really gone down the post-shading route and add to that more oil paint weathering, i had always been disappointed with my oil weathering but i found the flaw in my technique....its wasnt done on a matt finish, so problem solved me thinks. Painted with Gunze Mr Colours paints and MRP matt varnish to finish, so let me know what you think on the weathering, did i get it to work better?
  6. Good question and well spotted, but the person that wanted this stated the need for a pilot (which not my forte, i'd even pay someone to do them....please message me if any member would) so the seat belts wouldn't help the pilot seat correctly. Me personally, I prefer it without a pilot as you can see more detail inside the cockpit, i suppose it gives someone the option to do whatever they like keeping the belts of in this case
  7. Hello everyone, I hope you all are keeping safe. I've just completed the 1/32 Tamiya F16CJ and thought I'd share a few pictures of it, i swapped the static dischargers for the superb Master set (AM-32-084) as the kit parts looked a bit too chunky, MasterCasters Soft FOD inserts, other than that...its out of the kit box. All comments welcome....stay safe folks!
  8. You had me looking to see if there was one that had decided to get into the photo shoot lol
  9. Hello all, I picked this kit up a while back and only just got round to it.....thank you lockdown. This is the Special Hobby kit of the Hawker Tempest, soon to be released via Revell again so I'm told. Its not a bad kit but has a few fit issue so I'm not sure if Revell will be correcting these issues, but they aren't nothing major and can easily be fixed. As with all my builds, the paints I use are all Gunze Sanyo. On this build I tried to keep the weathering to a minimum and only really added some weathering to the wing rout walk way areas.
  10. Weathering one of them personal choices, I like mine to look like they have been on a few missions and that's where I find it hard to stop....but sometimes, less is more. Thank you all for the kind coments
  11. Thank you for your kind comments, the base is pretty simple.....if you have the tools. Its a large 20mm thick floor insulation foam square, I cover it with a brown tile grout mixed with real soil and cover with PVA. Then its a simple task of putting random sized static grass down with a static grass (old fly zapper modified) to get the grass to stand up, there are many videos on YouTube on how to do it....hope that helps. Many thanks to everyone else for the kind comments
  12. Blooming heck, thats a bit special! Well done, could I ask what paint you used for the light blue/grey as I can't ever get it to look right. Many thanks
  13. Hello all, I hope you all have been surviving lockdown by modelling-on.....this is the second Jug of lockdown. I set about Trumpeters P-47D Razorback version this time and found that the Razorback was a bit more of a drama than the Double top version, I think it maybe a different mould completely. Its a little tricky to get together and line up, but as long as you proceed slowly with the build, you should be fine. I added a few aftermarket pieces, these were the resin wheels by Brassin and the gun barrels set from Master (32115) and I get rid of the metal seatbelts and made
