OK, a one month extension to 1 June is granted. But that's it, so throttle up!

Ola Carlos,

No it's not only you, i was trying to "upgrade" my Sword Skynight but i got bogged down my work and put it aside and when i realised the closing date,.. anyway it's only 1 layer of black,..so a couple of day's would help however i can switch this one to hot out of the molds :-)





Thanks

Peter, Oliver, Lap Man, Pasi, amazing models! I have really enjoyed the variety in this campaign.

I took my eyes out of the ball this Easter break and I am afraid I will miss the deadline of the Campaign. Is is just me? Could we extend the deadline a week or so? (No worries if not.)

So far I have finished the painting. I was terrified of the NMF of my Mig-15 but I am kind of happy with it. Really easy to build model from Eduard. Tomorrow decals!

I will leave here a photo of the current state.

And done:



I honestly think this looks like it's been sand blasted, left to rust and then has collected good coating of sand. Olive drab and first dust layer apparently wasn't perfect combination. I may sound bit negative, but it's done and I still kind a like it. Two more photos are in the gallery.

My understanding is that early Israeli Shermans were painted with quite dark French OD in contrast to more modern lighter desert colours.

Great finished chopper. For me, it would be a real horror to fix the big canopy without adding scratches to it. Nicely done .

Peter:

petbat and Jacob:
Thank You for leaving a comment. It is the second time I build the Fujimi kit. Last time was 25 years ago.

Jacob:
Sanding looks good. Have You already a primer on it?

Looks good, I've got the ancient Airfix flavor in the stash. Sadly I'm so bogged down with my RAF and Jolly Rogers builds, that I'm not even gonna get the fuselage closed up on my F-80.

Sorry, not specific enough. The kit, old Airfix or a newer tool?

I hope there will be a take two with this campaign? I have a number of kits that would like to be built but I'm starting too late for this version.

Coupple of pictures of the Dragonfly. That thing is fighting me all the way. I had to putty and sand that thing 4 times. Its a very very very short run-ish kit.



Keep going Jacob, I believe it will work out great on your bench!
