Nick,

The weathering looks spot on. Fantastic job!

Nick, your Zeek is looking fantastic.

I have 6 builds on my bench so I work a little on this one and a little on that one. Yesterday was paint day for 4 of them so I painted the Comet the base green. A few more additional colors here and there i.e. road wheel rubber, tracks etc. then I can weather it and add it to a base.

The kit is missing the decals so maybe I can find something to suffice in my spares box

 

Steve,

I'm looking forward to seeing how you weather this Comet.

Good to see you're getting it done Bish, that's exactly what this GB is for.

I'm working on my Airbus again, yesterday I masked and sprayed the leading edges, and did about half of the decalling. 

Hopefully I'll be done with it in the next couple of days.

Cheers

Tony

I'm just taking it one GB at a time.

Nick that Zero looks fantastic. Did the figure come with the kit? The samurai sword is a nice touch. Gives it some flavor.

Nick, anybody's A6M's are my favorite kits to build. You do have to watch that toothpick landing gear though.

That is lookign great Nick, I bet you're glad you got back to it.

I finished up my 1/200 Ansett Airbus A320 from Hasegawa, nice to get that one done too. Not my best work, but it's better than being on the shelf.

This is the 9th model rescued from the Shelf of Dooooooooom !

I'm just about ready to start attaching everything to the base. When i built the Tiger, i had not yet started useing oils, pigmenst or any of the ready made products. I didn't want to do to much to this, so i just used some AK dust effects followed by some pigements lower down.

And i kept the Schwim the same.

For the building i wanted to go with white as shown on the box, but i wasn't sure about weathering. After some thought, i wnet for my old favorite, Raw Umber oil wash, and i am really pleased with the result. The inside is not very realistic, not wood roof support and as is usual for Verlinden buildings, no detail on the inside. This was a problem with the stable door. But i decided to just paint it white rather than try and paint the door on the flat surface, i just decided it was the least silly looking.

Just got to get these attached and finish the figures and calling it done.

Yes I found another one in my shop that I stuffed away,   A old Monogram F-80.  I think this was my first attempt at Alclad and I got intimidated about adding other shades of metal on to it.    Well I want to finish it now and use some AM decals  for the Saggin Dragon.    Not sure when I got these decal but the tag was 1983 when they came into the shop!

the pilot looks great,  thats one thing I've never tried to do is figures, not in my basket of talents.

I had to put the decals in the window for a couple of weeks to get rid of the yellowing.  Now I'll have to coat them woth micro scale decal stuff to make sure they don't fall apart.

Tony that Airbus looks great. Unquestionably better than being on the Self of Dooooom.

Bish how do you get so much high quality work done so fast?? I feel like a slacker! That's going to be an excellent scene, I have a feeling. That building is really cool.

Nick that Zero is excellent and I love the figure. It needs a base, man. IMO

Great job on the A320! The paint really turn out smooth, and white is so hard to do well.

Nick, that Zero is top notch & thanks for all the WIP pictures.

Bish, your builds are always great tutorials and this one is no exception.

Tony, that's a beautiful AC, nice and bright.

Hope to back in here with my Gekko soon, meantime I'm enjoying all the great work being done!

John,

The Alclad you sprayed looks good. It will look that much better with the contast on panels. You may want to scan the decals before you try to use them, just incase they disintergrate.

Outstanding job on the Zero! The figure is excellent! And I agree with Griffin, you need a base to keep the outstanding plane with that excellent figure!

Both of the models that you've completed here are outstanding Nick. Congratulations on them, I think the figure really adds something to your Zeke too.

I've added it to the first page. 

That makes 10 models that we've rescued from the Shelf of Doooooooooom !
