  1. I think this one will have been standard lozenge and then Jasta 18 staff painted it in their usual blue red. It’s in a data file, but at a long distance from the camera. At that stage they didn’t bother painting the lower wing. I used drooling bulldog lacquers as they are translucent which is a nice scale effect seeing the lozenge through the blue. The red is Kraplak, a generic pigment, and the blue is Prussian blue. I quite fancy doing another now...
  2. This one has been hanging around a while whilst I had a cataract done. I used Aviattic lozenge and spare decals from the late kit. Colours are DB kraplak and Prussian blue, which shows the lozenge through nicely.
  3. I use them all the time. Highly commended. Glossy lacquer with a slight translucency that means depth of colour can be adjusted, e.g. Red barons translucent red alby. Spray neat. Dry in seconds. Can be decalled over. Responds to salt chipping etc. Mask over with Tamiya tape. as it's lacquer, any liquid cement or solvent re dissolves it, unless futured I love them.
  4. It's enamel wood wash over gloss white with clear orange tint.
  5. JAsta 10 decals. Aviattic pilot and Rexx exhaust.
  6. This is the best thing I've seen since breaking bad. It's superb drama.
  7. I use bobs on top wings and only use gaspatch 1/48 on German 2 seaters really. Looks unright on single seaters and RFC aircraft.
  8. The way to get aligned gaspatch buckles is to thread from above, attach to the buckle under slight tension with elastic thread and then glue the buckle into the marked hole and count to 10.
  9. You're all very kind. Here's a few more
  10. Figures by Copperstate, Elan13 and Kellerkind.
  11. Our all very kind! Sorry for not replying sooner... the wheels are aftermarket. The scheme is from around the polish war of independence in1920/21 the crew are matt coated, but the sheen just comes from rubbing a greasy thumb over the bits you want a patina on. It works!
