Den fighters, (forever)

Recommended Posts

Well this is a disappointment; the Eduard supplied Russian stars are way too light. I may strip them off and redo, using a sheet of Aeromaster Lavochkin decals I have.

Hi Kev,

 

Really cool project! Can I ask you: What is that box with dutch masters printed on it?

Cheers,

Jeroen

 

It's a used cigar box that I keep my Dremel bits and punches in.

Aha. I recognized that Rembrandt painting: "De Staalmeesters" on the side and got curious.

And because I'm a dutchie myself smile.gif

 

Cheers

 

I had an uncle that smoked cigars all the time, so I have a bunch of these boxes for storing small parts and such.

The Yak looks great my friend. I kind of like the two tone gray camouflage scheme myself.I really looking forward to seeing more of the Mossie.

Highest Regards,

Thanks Greg. I think I'm going to strip off those awful Eduard (Techmod), decals, and redo with darker stars. After the Typhoon, the Mosquito is my next favorite WWII British subject, so I'll probably spend a bit more time on it to try and really make it look cool.

Thanks Harv,... I'm certainly enjoying it. I went ahead and stripped off those pale red stars, and replaced with some I "liberated" from an Aeromaster sheet. Looks lots better now, don't you think?

Nice stuff. Love the overall look combined with the end result and speed of getting these done.

 

I always wished I could do some or even A gear up, OOB pilot it type build, but my AMS always seems to take over and I end up turning it into another saga........

 

How do you remember to keep it simple but end up with such great results?

Thanks Brian. I suppose the answer is "minimal detail". I am concentrating almost 100% of my efforts on the exteriors, and trying some new stuff while doing so, learning more (I hope), that I can then apply to my larger, more serious projects. A dozen or more of these kits were assembled, then prepped last summer while I sat out on the patio, grilling, and enjoying the weather. Following this mass production sort of concept, I'll give washes and final weathering to about four at a time too. Either way, I'm having a blast with these slammers, and will start painting the Mosquito Monday; this weekend, like last, will be devoted to my 1:32 Mig 21.

Hi Kev

The Yak is looking great in cammo and the Aeromaster decals look perfect as compared to the way too light Eduard Re Stars. She sure is looking mighty fine!
