Recommended Posts

Update TIme


so black basing.. im not entirely sold i like the effect i got on the yellow. im somewhat liking what it has done on the light grays but im pondering if its worth the effort and hand cramps!! 


i do have to say i did master my new Badger Krome by motheling and using this technique ! and i feel tons more confident now with my airbrush.


Here is the bottom that i mentioned was done in my previous post




And last night i spend 1.5hours applying RLM 75 on the uppper surfaces


left wing






And as a bonus here is a sneak peek at my custom paint booth that i built in January. more on that soon





Thanks for following !

I suppose this is a bit off topic, but it would be nice to see more pics of the paint booth, which looks quite clever.  Not to mention your marvelous work on the 110.

Ha ! So i see i sparked some interest on the paint booth. So i built it in january, from having it  in my mind for at least 3 years.  I will do a full article on it at some point to share the design and maybe get some hints from you guys to improve it.

Alright i have a big update today


ive masked and painted the darker RLM 74, on the wings with pae and on the fuselage with blue tack. i was not really happy when i unmasked the rear section of the fuselage so i decided to wet sand it back down and free hand it. Im still not happy with it but i decided to go on.


the next part was to apply the Montex mask. I think my set was a bit old as it had some shrinkage to it and had a really hard tome to get it off the backing paper in one piece (using tape over to capture all thee parts).


overall im happy with the result. the next step is to pain the nose guns and install the nose so that i can apply the shark mouth mash and paint it, i must say im really nervous about that mask! 







tonigh i hit the "A" with some yellow and unmasked the last part. you can also se the touched up rear

Question for the "connaisseurs" i plan to install the 2 belly bombs and the 4 wing bombs on this bird. 


the question : What color are German bombs painted ? They appear to be somewhere in the RLM 75 range but im not sure

Here is a short update.


ive masked and painted the shark mouth and i love the result! 


Following this i spayed a coat of Alclad gloss in preparation for the stencils. I spent about an hour tonight but got very little done. this has to be my least favorite part of a build. But it add so much that i will push on and hopefully finish tomorrow. 


Can't wait to get this bird done! 








dry fitted the wings, the wing root joint looks pretty good



More soon 



thanks for dropping in
