All together now!

Surprised I've taken so long to do 4 aircraft....I've always been an impatient sort

I would love an air brush, but over £100 was the price tag I saw...that's expensive!

Nice models JD! Your quoted comment above is the reason I haven't built a model since I was a teenager. I look at the pics on the model builder forums every now and then and drool over some of the finished ones, especially tanks and other vehicles. I cannot justify spending a huge amount of money on an airbrush and the time to learn the finer points of the art. I'd be happy to spend lots of time building the models if I thought I could get a decent end result by hand painting. Your post has restored my faith in the possibilty of doing it by hand though.

Cheers mate

Thx Jim.

I really enjoy it. As I said, I think it's taken me 5 months to do the 4 aircraft (3 of which are 1:72), but I'm just taking my time and doing them when I can/want to. It's very strange for me as I'm a very impatient person by nature...so I'm enjoying the fact I can control this side of me when modelling.

I see little nuances each time I build one and I ain to get better and better. The impatience of me might be coming through though, as although my next attempt is also a 1:72 scale, it's a bomber and it's bigger than the 1:48 scale I did.

But I've very much looking forward to it and want to do a good job, so I'll take extra time doing this one. I do love the He-111

The way I loom at it is the die hards do the spraying...I'm not that die hard. I do it for fun and relaxation. and it helps a load!

Well done JD……….truly wish I had the time, looks therapeutic.

If you wish to get the airbrush look of fading lines with aerosol cans , mask your camouflage patterns with cotton ..

My next one

Me109 G10

For all you hard core aircraft buffs out there, I know the decals and the paint system don't go...and I know the paint scheme is "a bit early" for a G10, but I just couldn't help myself











mmmm...just noticed the yellow "smudge" on the spine of the fuselage...must've got it on my finger when I was touching up the nose!


Actually the whole fuselage of the 109 is messed up and so is the canopy...is this 1:72 scale ? Check out the Hasegawa 1:32 G-10, G-14, G-4 or the K-4 I have them all...still need to do G-10. Here is a nice finished model (not mine, I wish!)

Nice work to everyone who has posted some pics in here. I really wish I had the patience for this kind of thing.
