  1. Here's a project I did a couple years ago, as a gift for a friend whose grandfather flew Kingfishers in WWII. He wasn't able to provide any photos of any of the specific planes his grandfather flew, so I stuck with the markings I saw in the reference shots I took of the OS2U-3 Kingfisher displayed in the Smithsonian's Udvar-Hazy collection. My digital painting is made for giclee prints to fit a 12x18" frame at 500dpi. --- Last summer, my friend was able to present one of the first prints of the Kingfisher to his grandfather, CDR James Clayton Sutton Jr., on his 10
  2. Hello All! I have been watching this model for a couple weeks and decided to try it, this will be about my 10th aircraft since I decided to get back into building models, now granted when I was building as a child there wasn't any after market parts, (At least none I knew off) and I didn't try to modify the build either. Lucky enough for me there are several builds on line that are amazing and shows pretty much what to do to customize this airplane, I made it through the cockpit, then saw pictures of the radar and landing gear bays and see I have some work to do still, this is also my
  3. Hello fellow modelers, This project had started from the April, but due to my limited time the progress was very slow and I didn't managed to post earlier. The kit I chose was Eduard's Fw 190 D-9 Late #8189 profi pack. I started assembling the first parts (cockpit, some gun bay parts, gears etc.) and then I continued with the priming. Afterwards I painted the cockpit and cockpits sidewalls with AK true metal silver, I used this layer as a base for the chipping. Then I painted using mostly AK's 3rd gen colors. Unfortunate
  4. Hi guys Here I will post some photos from the Spitfires, I am currently building. I would like to ask for some advice, since these are my first builds (alongside with a F 16). Unfortunately, I don't have photos from the early stages. I used the Spitfires mostly to gain some experience using airbrush. For airbrushing I used a H&S Ultra airbrush, for the PRU schemed airplane I used AK's 3rd gen acrylics, while for the day fighter I used Humbrol Enamels. Both models were primed with Mr Surfacer 1200 and preshaded with black color, for the metallic base I used AK's True Metal Silve
  5. Thought I should start this one, as a in-between-other-stuff project. More emphasis will be given to the external surfaces and I will try to stay away from any complex additions etc... So, I begun with adding a few panel lines and creating some stretched metal effect.
  6. Probably been discussed here before but I've been trying to figure a good color match to these. These had to be among the most widely used paints in WWII but it is very hard to find anything out about these. I know that they faded and manufacturers had their own formulas and batches could vary, but you gotta start somewhere. Start with Olive Drab. I've been using Model Master paints for decades. They have MM1711 Olive Drab 34087 and MM2050 Olive Drab ANA 613, same paints? Then they add to that their versions of Faded and such. The period standard for USAAF aircraft paint was ANA.

  12. I had to take a break from my polystyrene therapy sessions after my wife broke her leg when she was 35 weeks pregnant. It was a bad break and so I had to put everything up and focus on the family. But the baby is here, she is walking on her own again and I have carved out some time for a new project! Since I have a 4 year old and a one month old I thought I would keep it small and simple. So I am going with a simple yet good Tamiya kit. I am using a Yahu P-51 instrument panel and all I can say is wow! Its really good! I am also trying out the
