  5. Hi Rich, thanks for the comments, the crew figures are from Reedoak, their pilots are just unreal for detail, I paint all my figures in the same way. black base coat, then white dry brushed, then thin coats to glaze, if you're not familiar with this its vert transparent colours mixed with water, and layered. The B/N is then just solid colours applied with a fine 00 brush, and cocktail stick, hope that helps, but if you need any more info on the glazing let me know, happy to help. Mike
  6. 1/32 Trumpeter A-6A intruder Finished this week 1/32 Trumpeter A-6A intruder, this is my 5th Build of this kit and its still enjoyable, hers 503 2nd time on this one, with slight differences in the paint scheme , paint's used were MRP paints, and Eduard MER's and Quinta studios cockpit details, everything else was out the box enjoy. Mike
  7. 1/24 scale Trumpeter spitfire " So this is a Spitfire, she sure is a a pretty lady" This is my first venture in to 1/24 scale and I wasn’t disappointed, seeing even more detail as an upscale form 1/32 its pretty amazing, I had heard a lot of bad things about this kit, fit issues, etc but I over came the problems and I hope made a decent job. All of the paint used was MRP and 95% masking instead of decals. The figures are 1/24 from Reedoak there are only a few figures that I could find in this scle, so its not as popular as say 1/32, and the Jeep is from Italeri Enjoy
  8. Finished 1/32 Tamiya F-15E Israeli Air Force I used the reskin engines on this one, along with the reskin cockpit, and also my trusty Reedoak Figures. This was all painted with MRP paints which I have to say are lovely to use, they dry very quick, and your able to use them in hot weather. I have also used small magnets on the pylons and Python 5, just to make it easier to transport Mike
  9. thank you all guys for all your comments, thank you Mike

  11. well its trumpeter, there are things that could be better, some bits are good, its my 3rd build on this kit so I am just a bit Trumpeted out I suppose, thanks for the comments Mike
  12. 1/32 Trumpeter A-6A INTRUDER “505 DEVIL LEADER” This is the trumpeter kit, and with all its faults, it somehow comes together pretty well. This build is from the “flight of the intruder film” and depicts 505 devil leader cool hand Luke and Cole Virgil Cole getting ready for a strike. The only addons I used are the Quinta studios cockpit detail, and the Readoak figures, it is painted with HATAKA acrylic paints. Instead of having the wings fully opened, or folded in the parking position, I decided to have the wings being unfolded, as no one builds them this way, it’s a simple bent metal tube that holds the wings in place. I used the AMMO night blue cement, as it shows where you have glued, great stuff, but if you use AMMO gloss varnish, it reactivates the blue in the glue and it all shows through where you have glued, so be careful, if you use this stuff. Enjoy Mike
  13. Thanks for the comment I used pink electrical tape, sealed afterwards with future floor wax Mike
  14. Just finished the Trumpeter 1/32 SU-27UB , its the 2nd time I have built this in this camouflage pattern, it doesn't get any easier. So its an OTB build, the only extras are the static discharge’s, and Quinta studios cockpit decals, I also used Foxbot masking , but as a template then cut mine out of Tamiya masking sheets, and HATAKA acrylic paints enjoy. Mike
  15. Hi Ernest, its an image I down loaded then its just enlarged on my I Mac , thanks for the comments Mike
  16. 1/32 Trumpeter A4 skyhawk this is the 1/32 Trumpeter A-4 skyhawk its not a bad kit, but you do need some patients wit it, some of the instructions are a bit head scratching, and a slurp of coffee, before releasing what the y mean. any way I used AK air as the main pint on this build, and Cam decals enjoy Mike
