You reckon that's bad? ... Check the guy over on LSP (from Belgium) ...

 

His wife ASKED him to build her a 1/32 B-17 ... :censored:

 

Much respect for his Oceans 11 style in pulling off the biggest con job in modelling history!!

 

Not only did he get permission from SWMBO to buy an expensive kit ... she actively BELIEVES she wants him to do it!!

 

Amazeballs!!

Hi Rog,

Yes I saw over on LSP what Mark had achieved!? :o

Mine was just luck, I could have ended up with anything - as far as my wife is concerned they are all just dust collectors. If I can convince her that that's a good reason to buy a display case big enough for 32nd scale jets then I'll have managed a similar 'con'!

Ok, ok, I did it.  I sprung for DeAgostini Millenium Falcon.  Plus some extras.  I won't even *think* about starting the build until I have at least the first half of the shipments, but the first load arrived today, giving me an idea about what to expect.

 

the Falcon bits:

And the Extras:

B00AFA38-52BC-479C-906B-BDA7EB5A0C45.jpg

 

These are PE and decal sets for the cockpit, hold, turret interiors and main engine screen.  All by ParaGrafix.  I also have some extra cockpit lighting enroute, and I'm looking at some other bits as well.  

 

This kit gives me something that's just plain fun to which to look forward.

Finally, after a long time doubt about to purchase one or not, i did it............:oops:

Want to make a Belgian Target towing Mosquito, so the extra decals that came with the kit was a nice surprise.

 

For reference, i got me some books, two for the Mosquito (i know, the one isn't for the same type, but the Belgian Target towing device is explained in it.) and one to get some advice regarding bare metal painting.

For the rest some materials, the perfect plastic putty (i heard a lot of positive comments about it, so time to try out.), some micro brushes, perfect for chipping effects, extra thing Tamiya cement quick setting and the new liquid chrome pen, something i really wanna try out.

Here we go ...

 

Very impressive - The postage out of China collected 4th March ... arrived at my post office 10th March!

I have already acquired the Trumpeter renditions of the Ju-87A and B ...

Here's the Ju-87D and G ...

 

IMG_0900_zpshnxhaswr.jpg

 

IMG_0899_zpses5sowjv.jpg

 

Of course, with these there are the typical Trumpeter issues ... A couple of inaccuracies. Though in this instance I'm pretty sure that most can be worked out with a bit of parts swapping!!

In a weird quirk ... the bomb load/crutch required for the D is in the B kit ... and vice-versa ... corrections to the shape issues in the B kit will come via Brian Fawcetts resin correction set.

The G kit under-wing guns are handed ... which, of course, aren't on the real bird ... The D kit contains a repeat sprue for this (for whatever reason) - so I should (barring any weird fit issues) be able to pull the required correction from this kit.

 

The D and G kits also contain some Geißkanne pods (suitable for a D-3) ... Those who know their Stuka's will remember that the earlier D variants had the shorter wingtips ...

So a Hasegawa/Revell kit will be needed ... either to install this ordinance variation ... or for the wing tips, perhaps?

More AM ...

 

GMF had one last Schatton-Modellblau 1/32 BK.5 brass barrel in stock ... So I nabbed it!! ... since I had to pay for shipping anyway, I added the B-25 tail end correction set:

 

IMG_0991_zpsp8hh2k0g.jpg

 

The BK.5 barrel was acquired so that I can make this:

From this:

 

IMG_0330_zpsfba9ec4b.jpg

 

The two problem factors now are: ... theres a telescopic sight for the gun which sits in the cockpit, poking out of the windscreen and the bomb-bay doors were bulged in order to fit the gun and magazine.

 

I can't scratch build for nuts ... so what to do?? ...  :shrug:

Hi Danny,

From zero with doubts to two. The Mosquitos are swarming around you. Yeah, once you get bitten you are infected. I will stay with my Tamiya one and a lot of AM an give the MK IV a pass. Hard to say no :).

Got mail today that my resin was delivered at the shop where i ordered it. So i made a visit this morning.

 

2ibjSxbh.jpg

 

This resin is really good quality, so i ordered 2 kg and that should be enough for some time.:thumbsup: 

 

Also i bought this sanding device, which i wanted for some time but couldn't find it anywhere local.

And my Humbrol masking fluid is getting really old now, so i bought the Micro masking fluid.

Hi Danny, I don't think the Resin alone is qualifying you for the Resin-GB :D. What are your plans with the stuff?

Cheers Rob

I'm afraid not Rob:lol:

 

Well i'm planning to cast some more detailed wheels for my MIG 23 build. Also i want to experiment a little with the stuff.  One of my wanna have projects, which is laying for a few years now in my stash, is the Revell/ Matchbox Sea Venom. As there is no aftermarket for this kit i wanna make my own resin pieces for it. It's a brainstorming project which will keep me busy until i have the courage to start on it.

I bought in Lingen (Germany) a few weeks back a 1/32 Hobby Boss F-84E for 25 euro.

Last weekend I was at the Shropshire modelshow at the Cosford RAF museum in Engeland and bought myself a 1/24 Airfix Hawker Typhoon Ib for just 40 pounds!!!! :D

Also bought some more cheap kits, but they were all in smaller scale. including in 1/48 a F-86K, E-2C Hawkeye, Mig 27D, B25G, etc.

 

Cheers,

Hi Danny, just saw ,that you got Micro Mask. If you don't know the stuff, try it before applying on the real thing. I used Micro Mask for my Corsair cylinder heads and it was nearly impossible to remove the stuff after painting. I used it because the Humbrol masking stuff is so thick and Micro Mask promised to be easier to apply, because it is more liquid.

Cheers Rob

Hi Danny.

 

If you try those MRP please tell me your opinion. Curious to see that MRP have two variants of Clear Doped Linen...

I surely will Francisco. I didn't know what kind of doped linnen color to chose, so i bought both of them. I'm also curious about these colors.

 

Still some work on my P-47, but i will soon start my WNW Fe.2b.

Hi Danny

Just wondered how you found the Ammo bases? They look nice and anything else I've used from them has been excellent, so just wondered if these are the same. Also intrigued as to what you're going to use them for?

I bought them on a Belgian online store called "The Modelspecialist", here's the link :

 

http://www.modelspecialist.be/Vegetation#filter:a4f99826e463a4930978e162e425bbae

 

The owner is a great guy, and gives a really nice service to his customers.

 

I will use this base for my up-coming WNW Fe.2b "early" build.
