    Here is another "burger"...By the same way as the Fw, was built within 24 hours OOB. No improvements at all, straight from the box. A good kit, ex Airfix molds.













    Hope U like it.

    TNX Dot,

    Organize your steps, build and paint other pieces while the previous are drying, (i paint with Acrylics not enamels! Acrylics dry within 10 minutes!), add some drops of experience, knowledge of the item and here we are...you can do it!

    I dont care about the accuracy 100%, I dont care about the detail. I just want to build and paint a plastic, and make it look good for my eyes. I've have stopped working on all of my BIG projects. Too many Kits were waiting like a wolf the sheep!! I decided to get off all of them. That's better than looking boxes every day making dreams!!!

    Alex

    That is a philisophical approach, for the amount of stash we have it is nice once in a while to get a decent model, built it up as it is and just be happy to paint, apart getting a model ready not the usual frastrating lenghty project it is also an experience in painting? What do you use Vallejo or Tamiya, I am also an acrylic follower ... but prefer Tamiya and adding their lacquer thinner instead of iso prop ...

    According to my experience, Vallejo are the beloved colors for AFV builders. Tamiya are good ...but not enough and accurate.
    Lifecolor are very risky and difficult to apply them in safety. Xtracrylics ...GO AWAY!!!

    I use Gunze. Easy apply, very good in their behavior during air brushing without surprises. Accurate 100% at RLMs. Especially RLM02 and 76.

    Many people here (Enamels fanatic...) tested Gunze...and all their Enamels traveled to Mars the next day!

    Very Happy

    Never used Gunzo but read that they are very good and the range is much better than Tamiya. VallejoAir are not bad but tend to glog my airbrush much quicker then Tamiya, as for AFV guys depends from were but Tamiya mixed with Laquer is a combination [probably Gunzo works the same as they are very similar].

    Will try them when I get hold of as locally it is quite impossible to get certain paint ... then ebay will solve the problem!

    TNX mate, I appreciate it.

    All my 48s I'm gonna show were build in 24rs. Some of them less than 20. BUT....Do not focus on the hours being spent, but on mistakes. It is my choice to model in blind, working on my instinct. I model for fun, and i call them "burgers"! I've got to finish 10 more till March 2010.

    ....> Dont forget...these are 48s...15-20 cm little piece of plastic...Are not anything serious models and built straight from the box. Cut, Assembly, paint, wash, Decals, Varnish = finished. Like a review in Hyperscale.

    I've got to show U some really good job later.

    Hi Dot,
    Thinner: White Alcohol. 50/50

    I clean airbrush with Windows cleaner, (i found one at Lidls, that makes the same work with Nitro). No smell at all, (my workbench is close to my Kid's room), Non toxic.

    Just amazing! well done and very nice paintwork. At the moment I cannot immagine myself constructing a model straight OOB, in 24hrs and producing a marvel. If I manage to finish the Albatross in time, it will be the shortest project, 6 months.

    For WWI subjects I use MisterKit acrylics, they mix very well with alcohol have easy flow and are accurate.

    Again well done and keep them comming, I would like to see some shots during construction so maybe I copy some tips and start finishing my in more record time Smile

    Your twin in SSM, is Joe Fenech, because he is a production machine producing very fine and nice models and in very short time but I think not in 24hrs.

    Hi Jo,
    I have not many pics during construction...I model so fast, and i do not spend time for taking pics..No time at all. I will post some later.

    Thank U for your good words. Take a look at my new post (the P-40). That's the real Alex.
