    Hobby Boss 1/48 F4F-4 Wildcat with a twist

    -3 is all masked up again ready for the next round of primer, a thin coat of Mr Surfacer this time. ...and after It’ll need flatting off again with a cotton cloth or polishing stick if there are any stubborn notes of dust. I’m pleased to report no obvious step in the paint around the nose area where it had pealed before. Next report should have some colour being splashed around. Duncan B

    Getting it wrong all these years.... :-(

    Thanks for your tips. One other thing, the nozzle is 0.2mm that came with the set. Would it be better with 0.4 that I have seen on the web site?

    Trumpeter 1/48 J-7D

    Been on night shifts this week, so not much bench. So, bearing in mind that the Billaricay show and War and Peace Revival are looming large, just concentrating on the J-7D at the moment to get it done in time. Since the last update, the decals have been done, panel wash applied and 1st coat of Matt varnish applied. Almost at the finish line

    Smer 1/32 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost

    Well I've filled and sprayed the body, this in now going to be a street rod, I sprayed the mud guards and the paint reacted weirdly (went all lumpy with holes in it) tried removing the paint with clean spirit (it's an ecologically friendly brush cleaner you wash out with water) and the mud guards melted, I mean to the point it looks like a blob of melted plastic. I've used this stuff before with no trouble.

    1/72nd Airfix Supermarine Swift FR5

    After trimming a little from the shoulders of the cockpit it was time to fit all the internal parts. The white interior to the intakes meant masking the intakes from the inside. This should be straight forward enough to take off from the outside… The wings were next up for attention. The mounting magnets have been glued in place with 2 part epoxy, then the top surfaces were glued and clamped. Then, jumping a few steps ahead, the flaps, undercarriage doors and ailerons are added, and the whole assembly attached to the fuselage. After a couple of evenings filling and sanding all the obvious seams that needed attention the tailplanes and rudder were attached. Now to mask the canopy and the protruding tail pipe and stuff some tissue down the intakes before it is off to the paint shop.

    617 First to Latest

    YAY! I'm (almost) back. with one weekend remaining of planned serious photography events left this summer, and at least 3 weeks enforced RnR as I'm having a Knee op next month, I'm ready to continue. Plus, last weekend I finally got shots of a 617 F-35B to work from (thank you RIAT). New job also means I'm home before I would be leaving my old job. Result! Onwards and (in the case of a jumpjet) Upwards!

    While waiting I have sprayed the interior of the F4F-4 bronze green. I’ll post a photo once I have completed the cockpit. Duncan B
  24. Hi all i bought this kit from our LMS, not a great kit. Loads of flash and the fit is awful, is this what Smer kits are normally like.

    Brilliant. You should've given me a shout Yorkie,I'm a professional industrial sprayer(blaster too). The trick is to use a glass mixing jar,pop in your paint first(use a pipette and count the drops)then the thinners and mix well. Once mixed,allow a drop to run down the inside of the jar,it should run fairly easily and leave a good tail of "colour". Adjust slowly either way(adding paint or thinners a drop at a time then mix and test again)to get it to where you want it to be. Decant into your cup and hook up your airbrush. Open the mat.screw(needle) fairly wide and give a test mule a squirt at about 10-15psi. Once you've got paint running through,close down the mat.screw until you get a just visible flow out of the nozzle. Anytime mate,anytime.
