I still have not managed to get my workshop set back up, I'm about halfway there but this Masters program is taking up 99% of my free time right now.  I have found about 1/3 of my supplies that were packed before we moved, just need to go back through what is left to find the rest.  Would hate to have to purchase all those paints, thinners, washes, etc all over again.

I have my He-162 together and on its gears, just needing the time for one final gloss coat and some decals.

Looking forward to your progress Matt!

 

 

 

Well, I finally got everything together with this little kit and completed the base (for now), and have uploaded pictures.

I present a fresh from the factory He-162 and spare engine.  Thanks for looking.

For such a small and simple kit, I sure took long enough to complete it.

Thanks for looking and for hosting a great GB,

<Matt

Well, certainly looks like you have gotten thge hang of it. I keep putting off doing any nighfighters with that type of scheme. I'm ok with mottling tails and small areas, but have not yet tackeled anything like that. Going to have to soon.

Thanks Bish! I have a bunch of Luftwaffe kits in the stash that I've been holding off on because the mottling intimidated me, but I think I'm getting the hang of it now.

It's been great having you in here SB and hope that things get better in your world pal. I'll be putting this one up front in the intro post where it belongs. It'll be a while till I run another GB.

I finally finished!  Sorry it took so long past the end date, but all the health problems really got in the way.  This is the 1/48 Monogram Do335 built as a night fighter.  The kit is pretty good despite its age.

Sorry about the poor quality pictures, my cell phone has been acting up lately.  Thanks for hosting Joe!

Your Do-335 is looking great in those night fighter colors.  You've done a bang up job on that kit.  I built the Tamiya one a while back and was a great kit (if you can find it on Ebay).

Thanks for posting, almost at the finish line.

I managed to get all the decals on.  They are a mix of decals from the kit and the spare decal stash.  I figure since the night fighter version never went into production I could put whatever markings on it.

Thanks Bish! Yeah, it's really unpleasant. Thankfully I should be done with it around the beginning of June

Thanks Joe! Most days I'm feeling pretty good. I have to get chemo every other week, and it gets me for a couple days. This is my "on" week so Thursday and Friday are not going to be fun. Hopefully I can get wheel bays painted and decals on before then.

Well I was pretty happy with the pace I was keeping and then I started my chemo treatments.  It really takes it out of you Ick!.  But it is what it is.  I finally finished the paint, even though I had to go back and fix it a couple of times.  Nothing to fancy, just mottles of RLM 75 over RLM 76.

Good lookin' paint work there SB! Looking forward to more out of this one! Hope you're doing okay buddy.

Just wanted to say thank you for this group I had lots of fun being apart of it. I got busy and lost track of my time and didn't  Finnish my second build in time.

 

Blackdog you're more than welcome buddy. It was truly great to have you here!
