Been working on the other wall for the last few days and after finishing decided to deepen the effects on both some.

Wow, that looks really good! Love the work you did on the cable bundles, very nice work bringing out the detail there.

That 210 is coming along nicley John. I have always liked the look of the 210/410s but have never built one.

Joe 

The details pop with the wash. The extra work pays off.

The 210 looks really good, love how the paint came out.

Thanks.  But a funny thing  the paint is Model Master RLM74 and 75 I think,  and one came out really glossy and the other fairly flat, really weird.  Now I thin my paints with lacquer thinner for my air brush so not sure what happened, can using too much thinner cause it to come out glossy?

Whew. Busy morning. Shot a lot of Model Master gray primer (thinned 2/1). Primed the Bf 109E and some other stuff like bombs for the F9F Panther, propeller and spinner for the Spitfire Mk VIII, flaps for a Mustang. This all will sit for a day or so before I go back and do some pre-shading.

OK. On the bench: Way too much to build in one lifetime...

Not really just more translucent. Maybe you didn't stir enough but looks very good .

Frank: Nice! All ready for paint! 

John: No idea here. I'm constantly seeing paint do weird stuff. I paint the same way, same brand, same environment, same thinning ratio, same air pressure and yet get different results... Sad What you've got looks really good to me though.

I ran into a few problems last weekend. I had picked the kit up in an estate sale, no telling how old it was but the decals were unusable. I dove into my stash and found some suitable replacements although the swastikas are probably a little big. Since the 1101 never went into production I figured I could use some artistic license on the markings anyway.

I decided to paint the X-4 missiles with a checkerboard nose. They look okay when they are not magnified by the camera.

So I am calling this one finished!

Alltogther a fun, quick and fairly easy build. A couple of minor fit issues but that was probably me.

John: Great progress on that 210. Can't wait to see how all that preshading is going to add to the color coat that goes over it.

Frank: Looking forward to the preshading process! 

JB: Man.....you've got NO kick coming on that build. Beautifully done and good goin' on finding some spare usable decals. Fantastic work bro!!!

JB: Ohhhhh that's sooooooo cool!!! Nice work!!! And yeah as an experimental aircraft I'd not worry too much about the markings- they look just fine to me.

Looks very good and the markings look fine.

Sweet looking build JB.

Joe, I can only imagine how much work has gone into that and it shows Yes

Steve

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.

JB, that's a great looking jet. Posing it with a Bf 109 gives it some scale. Really nice.

I'd really like to see a kit in 1/48 plastic.

Today's Bf 109E update: Not much, really, Just did pre-shading on the wings and fuselage with Tamiya Rubber Black. In a day or two I'll spray the RLM 65 Hellblau. I'll be trying Gunze for the first time. A friend gifted me the three colors I need to paint the Messerschmidt in BoB colors.

Thanks Ernie, Steve, and Cliff!!

Steve....it's quite a bit of work but it's worth it all as each piece gets finished.

Frank: Lookin' good. Have never used Gunze paints before but from what alot of folks say they lay down pretty smooth.

John: Looking great so far dude. Yes

My double action was acting up so I did spots with the Paasche H - not as nice but here we are.   Spots on and clear coated.

Thanks,
