  1. Final assembly, wheeldoors and wheels fitted. Some minor touch ups here and there. Getting there.
  2. I was wondering if it is possible to separatly purchase sprue F on which the Mk II parts are located. Anyone? Thanks in advance. Cheers Cees
  3. Not yet, that will be used on the undercarriage and selected panels. Just need to experiment with them. So close to the finish line I do not want to make stupid mistakes (not more than usual).
  4. Me too, it is very controlable and with cottonswab's you can remove as much or as little as you wish. Here she is after several wiping sessions. Some more tweaking and then ready for the mat varnish coat. I expect the finishline will be met later this week.
  5. I like em durrty though. Flory wash dark dirt.
  6. That would make a very nice diorama. But was this type of crane really used to hoist aircraft out if the water? Thanks for posting you photo's of a great model. Would you like to introduce yourself first and share the process of developing the model with us? Cheers Cees
  7. Geezz you really a challenge regarding your scratchbuild work. I love it how you break down these complex shapes into the simple basics. Very inspiring. Cheers Cees
  8. Just got back from the show at Lingen Germany. Couldn't resist this one for 42 euro's.
  9. The devil is in the detail. although I have been working on the p-40 almost every evening it looks like very little progress has been made. However, the tailwheel is on and the interior of the tailwheel doors and leather boot have been painted. The prop has been fitted with one of the nylon bushes provided in the kit and is removable. Very handy. Next stage is the washing/weathering process, although I don't want to make it look too filthy. The end is in sight.
  10. Yep, me too. Ordered the Quickboost replacement exhaust stubs yesterday as they look much nicer than the multipart Hasegawa parts. Getting there.
  11. Decalling underway. The flags nicely overlap the overpainted US symbols. Undercarriage fit is so great it's not glued.
  12. That is some very nice scratchbuilding. Looking forward to see more of this fine work. Cheers Cees
  13. Nope, they are already sprayed on. The discs represent the overpainted US markings. First coat of parket plus, I found some Dutch flag decals so no need for masking. This will speed up the build.
  14. Now you tell me! Sprayed the "overpainted" US markings and the masks were really helpful to get a nice result. I will be using more of these I'm sure. Perhaps it is too clean as pics of Dutch B25's show the work was done very roughly but in scale it works better IMHO. Now to get the Dutch flags masked off using Tamiya tape. Cees
  15. Yes, these came with a P-40 book I had, very convenient too as that way I can represent the overpainted US-markings with dark green and these will later be covered by handmasked Dutch flags. The prop is ready for the decals, the only ones for this model and a first for me too. Undercart and wheels have been completed too. Had some trouble when the chin cowl join cracked but that has been repaired with superglue and will be resprayes together with some touch ups needed. Getting there and having fun.
