Re: Dornier Do 217 M-1

Well done Martay. That mud is a proper job. Really convincing.

Re: Junkers Ju87-B "Stuka" 1:72 Airfix

I haven't done much for a while except get the salt off and do a bit of experimentation with toothpaste polishing. The salt came off relatively easy using a old, rubbish paintbrush and lashings of H2O. http://i1281.photobucket.com/albums/a503/citkane/Stuka/IMG_2810_zps27f92d1c.jpg http://i1281.photo...

Masking done, very tricky over the salt. http://i1281.photobucket.com/albums/a503/citkane/Stuka/IMG_2799_zps95e061e5.jpg And the spraying: http://i1281.photobucket.com/albums/a503/citkane/Stuka/IMG_2800_zpse1a5eb20.jpg http://i1281.photobucket.com/albums/a503/citkane/Stuka/IMG_2802_zps0c0ba9ea.jpg h...

Re: Junkers Ju87-B "Stuka" 1:72 Airfix

Great to meet some of you guys at the modelling fair. Great day and well done to all of you who organised it. Got back to salting the top surfaces - looks very heavy but most of it gets blown off with the airbrush. http://i1281.photobucket.com/albums/a503/citkane/Stuka/IMG_2795_zpsd651584f.jpg All m...

Re: Junkers Ju87-B "Stuka" 1:72 Airfix

And after dissolving away some strategic salt, things look like they may be working out :D http://i1281.photobucket.com/albums/a503/citkane/Stuka/IMG_2793_zps88d00298.jpg I don't want to take away too much now as the salt wraps around top and bottom - need to avoid an obvious line.

Re: Junkers Ju87-B "Stuka" 1:72 Airfix

OK - warm soapy water brushed over leading edges and a sprinkling of salt. The stuff really sticks and will need a bit of 'moderating' afterwards! http://i1281.photobucket.com/albums/a503/citkane/Stuka/IMG_2786_zpsca44bdf6.jpg After a bit of brushing away and general cleanup. I am just going to focu...

Re: Junkers Ju87-B "Stuka" 1:72 Airfix

Here goes nothing! I decided to give 'salt weathering' technique a go so have sprayed a coat of metallic flat aluminium as a base.

This could turn out delightful or unmitigated. :?:

Re: F4U-1D Corsair 1/48 Academy

Great job Lego, really inspirational. I have started into a 1:72 one of these which will benefit greatly from your example.

Thanks for showing.

Re: Italeri Dornier Do 217 M-1

Absolutely bring her! The cockpit detailing in itself will be a delight to look at. Pity you don't have enough time for the weathering, but don't be tempted to rush it and make compromises.
