komoras Hi Mike, would it be possible to upload pictures of this kit? It looks really good! I would like to use it as a reference to my build. I remember that you uploaded it on the Airfix forum for the 24h group build, but the photobucket pics aren't visible anymore. Thank you.

Holger Kranich Hi Mike,

not the scale we normally see from you but great! The repaired wing gives some drama to it and i´m just a B-17G nerd ;) Love that plane and your work on it!

Lochsa_River Beautiful work, Mike....amazing at this scale.
3. April, 01:21
bughunter The overall impression is fantastic, especially in your small scale! The wooden finish support that
3. April, 20:04
R VG Bloody Hell! When I saw this photo going by when scrolling, my immediate reaction was this is 1/48 for sure! But it isn't! I would be so glad to get this result in 1/48 scale.
I suppose you use Tamiya acrylic paint? Now my question is do you use their alcoholic thinner with it or their laquer thinner? It seems you can use both with their acrylic paint. I still use Humbrol and Revell enamel paint mainly, and I would like to try out Tamiya acrilics for once, so I'm trying to get info on them.
It is all more complicated then just using enamels it seems.
But again outstanding model of a very tiny plane in 1/72 scale!
3. April, 20:20
Clifford Keesler I have kind of fallen in love with Tamiya paints, I still use Model Master Acrylics also. I thin my Tamiya paints with their X-20A thinner when I can get it, I have also thinned them with alacohol with success, and I thinned the silver X-11 I believe it is that I used on my Meteor with Laquer thinner.
5. April, 00:51
Mirko Römer Congratulations! What an incredible finish!!
5. April, 07:27
KollHBM An outstanding model out of such a old kit - congratulation
5. April, 10:50
Mike Grant Thanks for your comments guys, and to Slavo for resurrecting this older thread :)

@R VG I use Tamiya paints and Gunze Mr Color lacquers (when I can get them). Both are thinned with Gunze self-leveling thinner, but Tamiya's own-brand lacquer thinner also works great with Tamiya paints. It goes on smooth and dries quickly, but I'd recommend a primer first. Tamiya White Fine Surface Primer, decanted from the aerosol can and airbrushed, works really well.
5. April, 12:15
R VG Thanks everybody for all the valuable information on painting. I'm surely going to try out Tamiya on a future project and see what kind of results I can achieve with it. But I will need a gas mask because I'm asthmatic and strangely, the fumes of White Spirit don't effect me as much as other fumes do. But I will try it out in a well ventilated place.

2. April, 10:47
Mike Grant @Pierre Thanks for the comment. This is an older build and was rigged using fishing line, but now I use the UVDR elasticated thread. For rigging 1/72 biplanes I use the 'Fine' weight.
