    Hi everobody,
     
    here are some pictures of my newly finished Nieuport XXIII 1:32 by CSM.
    If you would like to see more pictures from during the build just go to my websites https://www.mhscalemodels.com/

    Hi everyone.
     
    Here is my latest finished project - Roden Fokker D.VI.
    The model was completed almost OOB with HGW seat belts and machine gun cowls.
    I used acryl and oil paint to paint propeller, dry pigments and water brown wash for oil leaks. 
     
    Hope you will enjoy it.

    sillymodeler reacted to ChuckD in P-40B Demonstration Plane   
    Hi, all.  After much labor and strife, I present my take on what a demonstration P-40B might look like.  There's no real historical reference for this, but it sounded like something fun and out of the ordinary for this aircraft.  I'm also a sucker for natural metal finishes with pre-war/early-war national markings.
     
    This is the GWH kit, naturally.  It's a really nice kit, but not for the beginner.  A couple oddities I found were that the instructions weren't clear in a few spots (be careful of the orientation of the flap actuating rods) and the PE in this kit is some crazy alloy that resists all attempts to heat treat it.  The metal still had a lot of memory even after annealing like I normally do.  Also, the fuselage to the wing fit was pretty tight and required a lot of superglue and hope to get it to stay together.
     
    That said, the kit is otherwise very nice.  I used the Quinta Studio interior and the Eduard wheel set, though neither were really required.  The kit includes a rig to allow you to place an engine bay with or without the cowling.  The engine included with the kit is probably the most detailed Allison V-1710 ever produced in plastic.  So, if you want to display it, this kit's the ticket.  I did build it, but did not end up doing the gimmicky magnet setup to replace the nose section, so it's just a static display on the shelf next to the aircraft.
     
    Through no fault of the kit itself, this was one of those builds that seemed to be plagued with gremlins.  Stupid mistakes, lifting paint, small bits snapping off, decal solution attacking base coats... it just went on and on.  The Special Hobby P-400 I did a few years ago was the same way.  Hopefully I've exhausted my share of bad luck in the model room for another few years.  Bleh.
     
    Anyway, pics.  Full gallery here: https://postimg.cc/gallery/phBhdYt

    sillymodeler got a reaction from Cicciuzzo in (Fixed Images) Albatros D.II and Manfred von Richthofen (1/32 Encore models and Model Cellar)   
    Hello everyone
     
    I reproduced the picture of Richthofen with his comrades and the Albatros D.II, which is one of my favorite pictures of Richthofen. I found the Model Cellar created a wonderful figure from the picture so I decided to build Albatros D.II (Encore models) as well.
     
    According to the notes by his brother Lothar von Richthofen, it seems that the aircraft was painted brown during the period of this photo (November 1916), so I used oil paints to paint over the brown color.
     
    Actually, this is my first post here. I hope you guys enjoy it.

    Hi everyone.
    I built Mitsubishi J2M2 Raiden prototype (Hasegawa 1/32)
     
    The color scheme is a bit unusual, but Japanese prototypes and training aircraft were painted this color. Although I do not often build WW2 aircraft, I built this kit because I am living near the former airfield where this plane was tested for development. 
     
    Raiden (雷電) means thunderbolt, coincidentally, American and Japanese thunderbolts both look fat, and I like these looking. I look forward to building American thunderbolt as well in the future.
     
    I built this out of the box, just putting a lot of riveting on the fuselage. The fitting of parts is generally very good, and it’s easy to build. 
     
    I hope you guys enjoy it.

    Hi everyone
     
    I completed this model about a month ago.
     
    Junkers J.I
    Wingnut Wings 1/32
     
    This is one of the first groups of kits released by WNW, and it is already a great kit. Basically, I built this out of the box but just added a few details on the frame of the engine cowling and spark cables.
     
    As this was the first mass-produced metal aircraft,  silver color was sprayed for the wings as a base color of chipping, and oxide red was used for the armored engine cowling as well. In addition, although it is not very visible, I attached aluminum film to the upper left wing and opened holes to reproduce bullet holes.
    This is a very big kit, so it was a bit difficult to take pictures, but I hope everyone enjoys it.

    This is 1/32 PCM Hawker Hurricane Mk.1 from 43 Sqd during Dunkirk evacuation. I saw the model built by Tony OToole on some model sites and was inspired for this project.
    Cockpit enhanched by seat and control stick from Grey Matter Aviation.
    Canopy replaced with Fly's vacuform product
    I have used Gunze Sangyo acrylics as usual.
    Grey fuselage code letters are from Xtradecal set.

    I added some additional photos of the build process. One idea I tried for painting the propeller is using a jig of stacked 0.5mm aluminum plates with a gap between them.  It worked well to draw color boundaries.
