  1. Hi Fran, Just finally finished reading your mag article (we're a bit slooooow here in down under....) very enjoyable read. Great stuff
  2. Great work Marek, That rivetting makes it pop. Great scheme too. Regards, Dan M
  3. The piece of Mig is way kool. Great stuff. Regards, Dan M
  4. Crisp. Lovin' those harnesses! Regards, Dan M
  5. W√ľnderbar! What a way to finish off the year. Excellent photos too as always Ralph, the white backgrounds really make this particular bird "pop". Regards, Dan M
  6. Great post to finish off the year with. Sinister, but ever so good looking...... Regards, Dan M
  7. Nice and gungy. The fuselage rivetting certainly pops now- especially on the reich's defence bands. Regards, Dan M
  8. Thanks for all the positive comments gents, glad you liked the "toy". Regards, Dan M
  9. On the home stretch. Eagerly awaiting those final pics. Regards, Dan M
  10. Agree with Bevan's comment on the front & rear canopy width, mine were too narrow- I ended up making up a small "spreader" to hold them to the correct width while using a small amount of superglue.....once again, a little patience is needed.... Regards, Dan M
  11. Agree with Ralph R, great scheme choice Mish. Looking forward to forthcoming pics. Regards, Dan M
  12. Good luck with the build. Watch out for that rear wing-to-fuselage join underneath. You WILL have a gap, just be patient & get out the plasticard/filler. Apart from that (barring resin fit issues) you'll be ok, it's a pretty quick build really. Look forward to progress pics. Regards, Dan M
  13. Very atmospheric. Hope your crew's eaten plenty of carrots for the forthcoming sortie. Regards, Dan M
  14. Shelf queen no longer. Great stuff, the owner will love it, I'm sure.... Regards, Dan M
  15. Well done all. Regards, Dan M
  16. I've seen one of these built in the flesh, she's quite sizeable once together. One of those kits you don't see done too often. Regards, Dan M
  17. He's back to '48! It might catch on..... Great to see her finally in colour. It's rested in it's glass hanger for quite some time...bring on those big red meatballs. Regards, Dan M
  18. Stunning. The 3rd last pic is a great shot - that spinner really "pops" out at you. Always say that's one of the best angled "poses" for any 109. Keen for the next build! Cheers indeed, enjoy that beer.... Regards, Dan M
  19. Hey Bevan, Glad you like it. Bugger, You're right- I forgot about underside pics- never mind, not too much to look at anyway! The nose- I tried to keep it looking similar to the reference pics I had, I figured the easiest way would be via the "hairspray technique"- I started off painting the entire nose in RLM 76, then sealed it off with Tamiya clear. I then gave it a liberal coating of hairspray. I then applied several light coats of the camo green. To make the scratches I painted an area with windex to soften the green paint, then used sharpened toothpicks & the paintbrush to scratch & scuff the paint, revealing the 76 underneath. It's a good way to scratch up a larger area rather than having to hand paint all the scratches. Nothing like a real scratch....
  20. Greetings all, VunderVeapon done! '45 build thread here - http://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/4112-bronco-135-fieseler-fi-103-re-4-reichenberg-done/ Completed pics here - http://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/4274-bronco-135-fieseler-fi-103-re-4-reichenberg-done/ Regards, Dan M
  21. Done - Flaws 'n All with this one. Quite sure there would've been plenty of mods/fixes I could've done, but there's always another Bronco V1 to be built one day....anyhow, here's the finishing pics of the so-callled "VunderVeapon". As stated in previous posts, Gunze & Tamiya colours used, oils & acylics for the chipping & wear, Kit decals used, sealed with Dullcoate. Pulse jet weathering & heat damage adjusted thanks to a good clear pic of a V1 on a test rig provided by R.Riese. Regards, Dan M
  22. Hi all, Completed pics in the "Completed" Forum. Regards, Dan M
