  1. Looking great all right, nice to see someone build one that defeated me! the strange breakdown, gimmicky parts, the two part wing I got through...the landing gear finished me off, be warned. also the Spitfire has the same landing gear breakdown (square S joint at the narrowest point, the oleo) But, enjoying your work now.
  2. Thanks Andy, good to know...unless I make a dogs breakfast of it, (great possibility) then bad to know! I'm planning on cutting up the rear canopy section to show it open...wish me luck!
  3. Thanks guys, yes it's a good thing you've seen what's in there. It'll never be seen once the kit is completed. Thanks for looking
  4. A bit more work done on the cockpit tonight, not a lot of room in there with all the guns, ammunition radios and periphery. Iv'e dropped various parts and mishandled others enough to have broken the glue joints and chipped and worn off the paint in spots. after all that, not much will be seen in there, the pictures are all that will remain once the fuselage gets closed up I think.

    Thanks, I must give credit to Iwata airbrushes and Tamiya paints, they did the work, I was just the one pulling the trigger and scribbling all over the thing.

    Thanks I can make one suggestion, the fit of the upper turret is/ was uncertain. I had a little trouble of my own making fitting the stand the gunner would use while operating the top turret. I’d suggest building the stand and locate it inside the cabin then fit the top canopy and mark out the location of the hole for the turret. I mocked up the fit before cutting the upper hole but didn’t take into account some of the perifery items around the stand that could interfere with the stand when fitted to the upper hole. It’s a really good thing there’s a flange around the turret! It allowed me to oversize and slightly oblong the top hole to fit the stand and not foul the inner deck workings thanks for looking!
  9. Thanks Gaz, I cannot have fun building any model with large amounts of PE! I do however absolutely enjoy these fabric belts! I use micro liquitape to assemble them. Keeps them pliable and sticky

    Aims/Revell 1/32 Ju188

    Hi guys Thank you all very much for your kind words, the Aims 188 conversion is nicely done and a very good fit to the Revell kit. (I did make a diorama of the original cut off Ju88 nose, built up and placed on stands as a war memorial museum piece so as not to waste any parts) The paint is all Tamiya acrylics thinned 50/50 with Tamiya acrylic thinner and sprayed through an Iwata eclipse CR at about 15-20 PSI. (sometimes very low pressure, about 8-10 psi, but the paint can spatter at low pressure) I remove the tip nozzle guard on the airbrush, get very close to the model and start scribbling. I'm planning on the same type of "wellenmuster" scheme for the 110G4 currently on the bench. Off the soapbox now. Again, thanks for looking in and the positive comments.
  15. Hi andy i found my 188 wip pictures and posted them here on wip; Aims/revell Ju 188 see if there’s anything in there that can be of assistance
