Collingwood supporter?

 

;) :P Nope but nearly as bad...Tigers!!!!!! :lol: Go you wooden spooners

 

I love the warble of Magpies in the morning. That and a currawong are just a classic Victorian bird sound for me. Magpies are just cocky arrogant birds with a lot of character. they just strut maintaining their 'coolness' in front of all the other birds. I whistle like you'd call a dog and this one that visits my front yard runs over like a puppy. He's almost eating out of my hand. The guys in dental at Pucka Army base had them eating out of their hands at morno's...it was like a family gathering with the 'boys' gathering at the fire escape door for their morno feed.

 

Decals and surprise have gone out Keith. :P

 

Cheers Matty

Hi

 

I love 18's. I was lucky enough to sit in one at Farnborough about 5 years ago, it was Canadian. Looking forward to this one, especially the weathering stage, these birds always look beat up.

 

Thanks

Ian

After some repairs, few little adjustments and a little paint;

Originally, I had some paint that I had mixed up to paint this plane in USN colours. Once I applied them, they looked terrible.

So I have ended up using Tamiya XF-66/XF-19 straight from the bottle and I think it looks a lot better. Makes it easier to touch up too.

Have been attempting to create some "low-viz" markings using the Aussie Decals that Matt sent me. I tried using a thinned down version of the airframe colour to "fade" the decals out. The Roos turned out ok but I ended up hand painting the rest of the markings. A bit scruffy but it will do.

A few touch ups, then the gloss coat and the rest of the decals...

Slow progress is better than none. ;)
