Almost there, everyone!

I've been asked about a possible ribbon for this one. How does this look?

Looks very cool already, Daniel!

My Messerschmitt Nightfighter is ready. A few minutes ago I put the final photos into the gallery.

Keep going mates!

Thanks guys. There's a few stuff ups on this one, but now I have the second kit from the set to try and fix those errors.

easing towards the finish line. Get it all together and masked. Unfortunately the primer highlighed some spots that needed attention.

Nice work Daniel!

Now I'm calling this one done.

just some knobs and braces to complete 100%, but since it's 99% completed its fine by me to wrap it up.

I know the photos are lame, but its the best I can produce at the moment. Perhaps later on I'll grab some pics under much better settings.

Wonderful kit, Tamiya standards are all here, painted mostly with AK Japanese color set (nice shades but not so good to airbrush) and also Tamiya brand.
Eduard PE for the cockpit mainly, and also their masks for canopy and all markings (all but those tiny #76 and 176...those are decals). Also Quickboost cannons were used.

Hope you enjoy!













P.S. photos uploaded in the gallery, but it seems the campaign still has no banner???

Hi mates,
more progress last night with my 109


still some painting to do before the decals...
Good luck for everyone
P.S.
It was the first time I used the (included) masks for the unusual German crosses and they worked quite well.

Congrats Pasi!

One colour camouflage is indeed hard to achieve without being either boring or unrealistic.
I think your Mossi is none of the above and as for the tires perhaps a wash and some pigments using the right shades will break the spell.

Cheers

Congrats Pasi,
I like the overall look of your Mossie, it looks just the right amount of used. Maybe you can fix the tyres still?
Great job!

And Mosquito's done:
and an additional picture is in the gallery.

Honestly, I'm not happy how the paint job turned out. It's too messy and tires look like plastic. Have to get more practise with really dark single colour subjects. The kit was quite nice, but decal seat belts would need to be replaced.

Anyway, it's done and it's my 2nd completed model in 2018. Last year did 7 and at least that many failed without getting completed, so looking better.

Nice heavy weathering on the Saiun. Have to try something similar myself some day.

Meanwhile Mosquito is about painted.



Have weather it still and apply flat finish. Also antennae and transparent parts are missing. I think this will be ready next weekend.
