    Never thought this would happen:
     
    my Ju 88 is finished!
     
    At the risk of repeating myself I have to emphasise that this kit would never ever look like it does now without the generous help of
     
    Guttorm Fjeldstad!
     
    His thread on the real Ju 88 he restores up north in Norway and his most helpful comments and suggestions have been a tremendous help! Guttorm, thank you very very much!!!
     
    Now, what about the few additions to this kit? Besides Revell doing a fantastic job I made use of some goodies my friend Andreas88 created:
     
    - correctly sized resin wheels
    - correct vertical stabiliser and rudder
    - early version fuel dump vent
     
    From Eduard I bought the following additions:
     
    - 32224 Ju 88A exterior
    - 32633 Ju 88 interior
    - JX 084 Ju 88 mask set
     
    From Montex:
     
    - MM32092 Maxi Mask Set
     
    From Radu Brinzan, most welcome:
     
    - RB-P32006 (B)1/32 Luftwaffe Seatbelts - standard (Beige)
     
    From Peddinghaus Decals:
     
    - EP 2070 Ju 88 Standartbogen
     
    From Jerry Rutman:
     
    - the Fernkompass up front in the nose
     
    and last but not least Piotr Czerkasov´s (Master Model) simply stunning MG 15 turned barrels and etched sights. True works of art! Get them!!
     
    In case I forgot something I´ll add it later. Hey, I am getting older!
     
    Now , let´s start with the pictures. I had to retouch the swastika (no, please no new discussion on this again, please!) due to German law. Please understand. Thank you!
     
    Is there a limitation on how much pictures are allowed?
     

     

     

     

     
    With more pictures to follow, if it is allowed.
     
    Thank you all for your help on this build!

    Thanks for the nice comments guys, its appreciated. Seeing as few people here have asked how I do the weathering and if theres enough interest, I'll post up a few WIP pics with a little tutorial outlining the basics of what I do. Its surprisingly easy and gives some nice effects.

    Finally got this basically finished, although theres still a bit of work to done to the engine, I'm calling this complete. I used Eagle Cal decals along with an Eduard P/E set in the pit and custom mixed paint using Mr Color (the old Gunze Sangyo gear). Basically out of the box really, but I tried some new weathering techniques that turned out so subtle, the camera doesn't really pick them up. Anyways, its done so here are the pics, any comments, good or bad, welcome.

    Anyhow, the Xmas holidays really allowed me some time off for modelling…… amazing how fast progress is then.
     
    Masks were drawn and cut using a Silhouette Portrait mat cutter
     

     
    This really is a very useful tool for LSP modellers.
     

     
    After that I did the yellow leading edges, adding some more chipping using a Maskol like solution
     

     

     
    Let's see how far we progress today….

    Initially I was attracted to a "blue Ki-84",

    but Jay Laverty had down such a superb job here on LSP that I decided to do something new.
    While browsing through Jacek Jackiewicz's book on "Japanese Aircraft in Foreign Use" I stumbled upon some captured Ki-84's used by Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalist Chinese forces.
    In addition - Stefan G provided a useful profile by Jerry Boucher from an old issue of SAMI - mercy vielmol!
     
     
     
    All I needed now was a set of blue sky-white sun masks….

    Then following Doog's approach, I sprayed a base of black prior to a coat of Alclad aluminium (with dabs of chrome).
     
    I tired to break up the light green grey undersurface by mottling in other grey colours:

    Since i have not got all the goodies yet for my IAF F-16A Netz, I have settled for one of my stalled kits, a Ki-84 from Hasegawa - where i got inspired by the numerous builds here on LSP - and then daunted from carrying on.
     
    As for most builds, I started off with the pit, coating in Alclad aluminium, before applying the dull brown cockpit colour that Hasegawa recommends.
     

     
     

     

     
     

     
     
    This kit really is a joy to build, and I can see a second one on the horizon.

    I made a LOT of mistakes but also learnt a lot on my first 1/32nd jet. I will pin all weapons next time for a start and do the windscreen and canopy ASAP. Many of the problems where just due to my inability to focus and complete the model. Therefore it lay around and got knocked around.
     
    This is my second completion this years (after a Trumpeter F-106) and I would not let myself move on until I had finished these 2 models. Next stop 1/72nd CMR Buccaneer (I am a huge Buccaneer fan and as some of you may know the lucky, privileging owner of Buccaneer XX894 as well as a member of the amazing Buccaneer Aviation Group).

    I havnt posted here much, as I just dont seem to be getting a lot of my 32 scale stash done, however, decided to give the tamiya Spit a bash this year.
     
    so here it is, done in the markings of Clive "Killer" Caldwell as something different from the usual RAAF schemes seen
     Kit has been enhanced with Barracuda Studios' cockpit upgrade, cockpit door and Z tread tyres
    All national insignia were masked and painted with montex masks, whilst codes, serials and coreboard came from Victory Productions "Spitfire Aces of the Commonwealth"

    SinuheH reacted to Mike Robinson in Wingnut WIngs Felixstowe F2A Early Version   
    Here's the final photos of the Wingnut Wings Felixstowe I completed. I had posted a few pictures earlier in the WIP Section but these are much better shots.
     
    This particular model was completed as aircraft 4291, a Saunders built machine delivered to Killinghome on 4/20/1918. This aircraft, under the command of TC Patterson abd AH Munday, shot down Zeppelin L62 over Heligoland on May 10. In July of '18, she was transfered to the fledgling US Naval Air Service, after which it was painted overall black and had spot lamps mounted under the wings for nighttime operations. 4291 came to an inglorious end (along with the US Sailor responsible) when said sailor used a match to check the fuel level in the main tank.
     

     

     
     

     

     

     

     

    Seeing as this beast is too big to use my regular photo setup with, I had to shoot it outside on a cloudy day. Just as I snapped the pic a fortuitous gust of wind came along. Great timing.
     
     

    Running up Engine 1.
     

     

     
     
    I chose to model her as she would have appeared just before being painted black, as the natural look of the wood and linen was more appealing to me than any of the dazzle schemes. I hope you like it and as always, feedback, comments and critiques welcome.
     
    Cheers

    Good evening everyone
    Well there she goes, shes done...
    The kit is Tamiya's fabulous 1/32 A6M5 Zeke...
    I was planning on doing a work in progress during my leave time from work, so i thought id dig this kit out of the stash. i hadnt worked on styrene for the past 6 months or so so i am really pleased at how she turned out...
    In addition to the kit in itself i used the Eduard BigEd set for the kit (which was to be honest not really necessary as the kit comes with metal barrels for the cannons, photoetch, a metallic antenna wire and all the bells and whistles you could imagine...this kit is COMPLETE in itself)...
    Well to tell you about the kit, its one of, if not, the best kit i have built up to now...the quality of the moulding and the fit is really fantastic. The instructions are the standard tamiya type which i find to be really good and informative, plus you get two pages of reference pictures for your build taken on museum aircraft, unfortunately in black and white but we cant really complain... 
    This kit has landing gear that you can retract and extend even after having assembled to the wing spar...the engineering is really really good and i was very pleasantly surprised to find they really do work as i was a bit skeptical due to bad experiences with other kit manufacturers...
    i mainly followed the painting instructions laid out by tamiya as my ipad with all the modeling references was left behind at home so i had to trawl the net a bit for very minor 'additions' to the build.
    The build was started on the 10th of june and completed on the 21st so i am really happy i made the deadline as tomorrow i am flying back home for work.
    It depicts a Zeke on carrier Junyo in the marianas sea in 1944.
    I have used lacquer paints for the engine and for the metalizers, and all the rest of the paints were tamiya acrylics. For weathering the aircraft, i used the hairspray technique for the chipping, oils for fading and grime, and all sorts of washes enamel and acrylic, enamel filters and pigments...
    It is also the first time i have a go at painting a 1/32 figure, usually i avoid those from back in the day of building AFVs... this one turned out okay
    i am going to post the link to the work in progress where you have all the breakdown on the paints used, where and how, and the weathering process i have applied if anyone wants to pick on some techniques or ideas...
     
    Thanks again everyone for the great time we had building this kit, and i hope to be seeing you soon again for another work in progress on my next long leave period in january hopefully... or maybe a bit earlier than that i hope
     
    Comments good and bad are always welcome and thanks again for dropping by!
    Stay safe and happy modeling
    Until next time
    Karim
     
    PS: The base is made out of a picture frame covered with wooden coffee stirrers and varnished to represent some sort of planking...simple enough diorama to present the aircraft on rather than the generic bigger diorama base i use for all my other aircraft...sorry i forgot to mention lol...and the photoetch name plate on the side of the frame is the actual japanese nameplate photoetch part that came with the tamiya kit!

    Well its finally done. Its taken 1 weeks and more hours than i can count.
    The challenge was to get sponsored to build the kit in 1 week and then auction it off. All of the monies goes to little Havens.
    This was also built in Memory of our little 3 year old Daughter Daisy who tragically died on 14/02/14.
     
    I always new that there was a really nice kit of a Spitfire hiding in that Airfix box. With the kind donations from Airscale , John Dutfield model railways in Chelmsford , Grey matter Figures , and Dave T.  This has been a slog that has mentally drained me. I found myself starting everyday at about 8am and working on until about 4pm every day. The kit went together OK and with a bit of scraping , filling , sanding , and swearing it worked out. I made a spar for the wings to get the correct dihedral. The gun covers and side panel are removeable. I wont waffle on any longer other than to say ,
