Very nice! I think it looks fantastic. And yes I agree with you the AK snow micro balloons are awesome. When I do snow I usually use the AK interactive snow mixture and then I put the micro balloons on top

Thank you.

That's a Tamiya 1:16 figure, correct? Looks great. Do you have any experience with the Alpine Miniature figures?

Looks great.

I have been watching a new to me YouTube channel recently, called "SpruesnBrews"
He seems to have some good technique and skill for painting figures.

Thanks.

Yeah, his videos pop up a lot in my feed. They've been helpful.

I think I'm going to go back and paint the camo on the exposed reverse sides of the Fallschirmjager coats. That should be a bit more challenging than basic white.

I finally finished up on this old Monogram P-61.  I added resin cowlings and engines.  I started this kit 7-8 years ago or so when this was the only option for a P-61 in 1/48.  I got frustrated with all the filling and sanding that was required and put it away and then finally got around to finishing it.

I wouldn’t recommend the kit unless you are wanting to spend a lot of time filling seams.

Damn!  It’s awesome.   I’ve got the Hobby Boss 1/32 kit I plan on building as my Uncles ride back in WWII. He was a P-61 test pilot, I’ve been told.  I’ve got to get custom decals made for it.

Thanks for the image link!  I plan on a base with as many photos of it I can find on a background board.
Uncle Gillie was married to Dad’s sister, from Alabama as per the Wabash Cannonball song.  I don’t think I ever got to meet him in person since dad wasn’t close to his family.  One of his other brothers was a top turret gunner on a B-24. Wish I knew more about his plane too.

Always liked the Black Widow. Love the black Aggressor schemes the AF is using now. The old night fighter black with insignia red markings.

Let us know where you get the decals made and their quality.  I'd like to get some made for one of my helicopter models to represent the squadron I was in.

I’ve used this guy in the past.  He made me some cockpit names for a 1/32 F-16.  Extremely small black script. Not really big enough to really test someone’s skills, but the worked great.

This is a very old Monogram P-40 that has been in my collection of kits for decades. I did several improvements on the cockpit details. You can see the white styrene scratch built parts in the photos.

I also opened up the cowling, used aftermarket decals and used a vacuum formed canopy. This was my first model to build after a couple decades hiatus.

Working on the 1/35th scale PBR from Tamiya









I'm waiting on some 3D printed disintegrating links to show up to sprinkle among the shell casings

A relatively recent build. I scratch built most of the cockpit, all of the engine details, and hydraulic lines in the wheel wells. Only PE part used was the instrument panel.  

I used various sized wire and polystyrene to complete the details. I added catapult hooks, spark plug wires, hydraulic lines, brake lines, all throttle control and trim wheels, constructed a rail for the seat, made seatbelts, and added full structural support details to the cockpit.

something different, the old Monogram snap-tight Tom Daniel's funny cars. These have been re-issued by Atlantis Models.
lots of fun and a "snap" to do.
When I completed Fake Out! I saw that Tamiya had some nice metallic spray paints. If I ever re-do the Fake Out! I'll use the blue metallic.

a couple of others recently done.
I got out of the "rivet counting" mode. just for fun and if it's a little wonky, that is fine.

Both of these are the original Auora molds re-issued by Atlantis Models.

two more classics.
the Fireball Dragster - re-issued by Atlantis Models, I think this was an original Monogram kit. I'm not sure.


and an original Monogram kit, The Red Baron. the ultimate classic model kit.

I believe they scale out at about 1/48.

Not to be the guy,  but they are in the 28mm scale which equals 1/56 scale...




I think.

sometimes the same genre of kits gets boring.
so, to "cleans the palette.'
The old Lindberg lighthouse as re-issued by Atlantis. With working LED light that flashes on/off




next up, I found an old Revell Tom Daniel's Roarin Rail.


sometimes, assembling an easy kit is more fun and relaxing than those monster high piece count kits. Some of them get so ridiculous.
