It was free hand. Dip the flat end of a shish kabob stick into the paint, dab away on the model. Cover with black chalk mixed with water and a bit of a dish soap, let it dry and wipe of as much as you want with damp cloth.

Nice builds. Did you free-hand the camo on the 109 or did you mask? Either way, beautiful work. I have a 190 in the stash that I'm thinking on doing in a desert camo. 

On the bench: Revell-USS Arizona; Airfix P-51D in 1/72

Great stuff!  That is one bright little bird dog.  I remeber the wasp - thinking how increadibly vunerable the crew would be.

Thanks,

John

Lol! Yes, I had each of my kids building models at one point or another in their childhoods. Only my son has really stuck with it, and he's more into the Gundam and Anime/Video Game types than anything else nowadays. 
I know that my attention span at age 10 was sure different than theirs is at the same age. I blame that on Shepard Paine and those pamphlets of his in the Monogram kits of that era. Wink

Thanks y'all!

keavdog I have seen the kit you're talking about on eBay. I hope you post some pics when you get it going. I love those kind of models. I'm kinda surprised no one has released a series of aircraft engines all in the same scale. I would imagine it could provide some cool display options with an engine/aircraft combo.

stikpusher, I can see that you have experience helping young modelers get started in this hobby...Wink

I thought models with bad part fit tested my patience, but the attention span of a ten year old is something you have to see to believe Indifferent

FF, those are three beauties there! So who did the majority of the work on the F4U, the ten year old, or yourself? Wink

Im also really loving that Wright Cyclone engine. That looks great!

Great stuff FF.  I really like the Wright Cyclone.  I have the 1/8 Williams Bros Wasp in the stash.

Thanks,

Tamiya F4U-1A

A vanilla OOB build for sure, but I was "helping" a ten year old with his first kit and wanted him to have a good experience with it.

 

ICM P-51A

In terms of part figment and quality it was the exact opposite of the Tamiya Corsair in every way imaginable...LOL

 

Atlantis/Monogram 1/12 Wright Cyclone Engine

A really old, really fun kit for a nice change of pace

Hmmm.

        I don't think I would want to be in one if those were hit in battle!

 

TB, the external drums of diesel are the least of the crew's worry on the Soviet designed 125mm gun tanks. The auto loader ammo carousel under the turret floor is way more dangerous to the crew's survival... Surprise

Frank, those are three beauties that you've completed recently! Very nicely done!

Hey Stik!

       Just to show how little I know. Are the Barrels on the back of Russian or Former Sovet Tanks, the fuel tanks? I have been assuming so. Am I right?

 

 

 

Yes sir those are fuel tanks,I believe on some T-34's they had small smoke canisters on them,but those are fuel tanks.

 

Correct! They are there to extend the range of the tank. There is a fitting that can be added to plumb the fuel drums directly into tank's fuel system.
