  1. Very nice! One of my favorite "modern" aircraft! I have the Trumpy kit in the stash that I will get to one of these days.
  2. Not sure how I missed this one. Great job!! The figures really bring life to the whole display.
  3. Looks fantastic Mike! Those wicker seats are really nice.
  4. This is looking fantastic Sasha. I think you've convinced me to add rivets to models where the kit is lacking!
  5. Peter, meant to also say I'm glad to hear things have gotten better for you and that you are back to modeling. You've been a kind supporter for everyone else here these past few months, so we are all looking forward to supporting you on this build. Welcome back! Forgive me for asking, but why do you need to fill all those windows? Are you using decals for them? What would the kit OOB have you do? Just leave them open or add a drop of window glazing to the opening?
  6. Looking forward to this one. Don't see too many of this kind of subject!
  7. Looks really great Martin, nice job! Wow!
  8. Nice choice! If it helps, you can see Eduard's paint scheme on page 17 of the PDF below (see camo scheme E): https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/4/9/3/114493-50-instructions.pdf Amazing work on the engine!
  9. Looking really great Rob. The painting and decorations look fantastic! One alternative to using paints on wooden ship models - aside from using colored woods - is to use stains and dyes. On my Pegasus I used black and blue stains from General Finishes. I like the stains approach in that they go on a little thinner than paints, and so you can still see a little of the definition of the wood underneath and it will have subtle variations in color tone reflecting the variations in color tone of the wood. Have to test any stain or dye out on scrap first, as they will look different depending on what wood you are applying them to. Just wanted to throw that out there in case you are thinking about a future wooden ship build.
  10. I like the lines on this one - very cool subject! Looking forward to another masterpiece.
  11. Thanks Rob, had no idea about that. Good to know, appreciate it!
