    The quality of your primed assembly looks impossibly pristine, just like those 3D-renderings used by manufacturers to market their products.


    I wouldn't paint that either. It's already perfect.

    I'll never get sick of watching those instrument panels come to life!


    Hah! That's what I'm waiting for, too: Moving intrument hands, real screws and bolts instead of just some fake "PE-blobs" and of course all those switches and toggles actually totally switch- and toggleable... ! Come on, Peter ...!

    I can scratchbuild


    No way. What you do, cannot be called "scratchbuilding" really.


    Do you mean "building from scratch" perhaps...?




    Cheers & congratulations for the completion of another gorgeous Masterpiece.



  4. Fantastic! Possibly the most realistic paint job on such a model, that I've ever seen: No overly accentuated panel lines, no hollywoodesque shading effects, and the subtle, uneven shine on your beautiful bird makes the appearance very credible. Here's hoping that this lifelike surface does not need to be buried under a unifying "flat coat" in the end?


    Cheers, Joerg



  5. You will never need some prefabricated plastic core for one of your models anymore, Peter. To correct and modify one of these is probably more time consuming than building your subject completely from scratch, as you have demonstrated here; and considering the pace of your progress with the Fury.


    You are the perfect model whiz now, anything you want to build within your grasp ... :beer:

    Congrats  ;-))

    On the banana front, General Alcazar is still waiting for his second-hand Mosquitos to start the revolution.


    ... Which then leads us to the Emir of Khemed, of course. I seem to remember that he posessed a Spitfire (MKI with a flat canopy?) in a quite striking yellow livery which he used for 'information warfare' against some unruly (and analphabetic) desert tribes ... Perhaps a diorama with stacks of those nice rosy leaflets beside the aircraft...?


    Enough of this. ;-)

    Fantastic pics from Craig.


    Does anybody know what those rough-painted tracer lines over some rivets/welding spots and around the hatches actually are? I seem to remember to have seen similar traces on wartime pictures, but always assumed them to be perhaps from rainwater in the dirt, due to their random appearance. 


    Some protective seal?
