Thanks Crown.

I really like the Flory washes. They are very easy to apply and remove. Let it dry then use a moistened Qtip on hard to reach areas and a damp piece of paper towel to remove excess wash on larger areas wiping in the direction of the airflow creating subtle light streaks as you go.

P.J. Looks fantastic. It's amazing how they took a 30's design and made it heavier and more powerful armed platform even enforced wings for ramming bombers .

This is where I'm at so far. Used Flory dark grime wash to darken the recessed details to start the weathering process. 



The engine needs some touch ups 

The cowl door interior and other parts were painted RLM02 and given an oil paint wash to grime up the areas. More weathering to follow.

Well, Crown, I cut the guns off while I could still get to them. I'll re-install them from the outside after the airplane is painted.

Zveda1980, I've been thinking about those Eduard Overtrees for kits I'd like to build. I see that you have a P.E. fret and a canopy mask, as well as the kit sprue. Is that everything that came in the box? Assembly instructions are easy enough to get from Scalemates, so the build wouldn' be any different than any other kit.

Bish I'd like to join with Eduard's Bf-109E-1 (1:48). I have a couple of overtrees waiting to be built.

Great looking 210 TJ.

Frank your 109 is shaping up.

I have just about all the decals applied on my Kurfürst, lots of tiny ones. Once all  the decals are on, a Flory wash will be applied to pop the recessed details and begin the weathering stage.  I will have some pictures up soon.

TJ: Oh wow! Beautiful results!!! Always liked the looks of the plane and you did a magnificent job on her!!! Heart

Frank: Hmmm, interesting choice of kit engineering. Not sure I'm a big fan- seems like it will be hard to paint the guns if you have to pre-install them in the gun troughs.

I thought this is an interesting installation for the nose guns. This is the Hasegawa Bf 109F-4 Trop. The guns are attached then the cowl is installed over them. Never saw that before.

Nick: That's some good progress on that F-104 buddy.

Frank: That Emil built up nicely!! Doncha hate it when the big bad ol' carpet monster munches up the small parts?? I use the same technique with the ground up pastel on the exhaust stains as well. Great job man!! Lookin' forward to that G build.

Deeve: That Komet looks GREAT!!! Very nicely done brutha!!

Johnny: That Hornet is coming along nicely. Looking forward to the decals on that shiny finish!! 

Ernie: Love the landing gear paint up and weathering. Awesome job on that spinner too!! Yes

Martin: What???!!! A 1/32 scale build??!! I don't think I believe what I'm seeing.  After seeing what you do with 1/72 stuff I can't wait to see what your gonna do with this.

Eagle90: Dude!!! That's a serious 163 there!! WOW!!! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you sir.  It was a fun one to do for sure and this GB is great!  Very inspiring builds indeed!

Eagle 90. That's a speedy me 163 very cool finish Richthofen would like Beer

Thank you sir.  I'm glad Bish mentioned the scheme and I ran with it.  I have two 1/32 Me-163's....thinking one of them might just be the big brother to this one someday.  LOL!

Looks great Bobby. Sure is different from the usual Komet schemes. The red is super glossy smooth, like automotive quality. What paint did you use?Beer 

 

 

 

 

Thank you sir!  It was fun to do for sure.

Actually it is just regular Tamiya Flat Red (XF-7), but I put 4-5 coats of Krylon Colormaster Gloss Crystal Clear on it.  LOL!  I ran out of the Testors clear coat I usually use and grabbed this at Wal-MArt hoping it would work.  I tested it on a couple of old models and it turned out pretty good.

 

 

 

 

looks great. Did you decant it?

 

Believe it or not, I did not!  I just stood off a bit more then usual knowing it was going to come out like a fire hose!   LOL!  Thus the 4-5 coats.  And I waitied a full 24 hours between coats.

Frank: Good advice there by PJ but yeah I can see not wanting to try using ancient decals on a model. 

Mustang: Again, that's lookin' good! Enjoy your vacation! I need one myself.... Paradise

 

Well, I do have an interesting scheme and decals in mind for that airplane.
