Urban Gardini Looking forward to see this one done! My so far only 1:48 kit was this kit and I used the KNIL decals in the kit but sadly I just followed Tammy's colour instructions so my build is in the wrong colours. But it's a fun and nice kit to build, you don't feel that the kit itself is really old from 1974. Lovely kit and the KNIL markings is suitable for the bird.

Wim van der Luijt After a serious downturn in my motivation caused by severe airbrush issues I finally made some progress. I overhauled my trusty H&S Evolution and learned a trick or two so I can now spray Vallejo ModelAir without any glitches....the only hick ups are now caused by my own hamfisted technique I used K.W. Jonkers pages for inspiration...and sprayed freehand for the first time ever......(crappy cell phone pics are up loaded )

Erik Leijdens Looking good Wim! Glad you are continuing your Buffalo. Made one too when I re-entered the hobby, nice kit. Colours looks good to me, jongblad/oudblad?

Thomas Bischoff nice work - it took me months to learn how to handle Vallejo
Wim van der Luijt I have mixed feelings. I trashed one decal as it damaged straight away (but plenty spares luckily). I always add a little vinegar to the the water and seemed to help. The decals did react to SOL but needed multiple applications (and I had to pierce them with a hobby knive), they are stubborn. Yesterday evening everything was still drying so count tell for sure. If all fails I have some extra strength decal SOL I mixed out of IPA, acetone and water....but that is harsh on the paint....will try some pics this evening

Erik Leijdens Ok not nice to hear that Wim. Looks like Flevodecals are not of consistent quality unfortunately. Looking forward to your pics

Wim van der Luijt Well...the decals are a bit of let down....but I'm close to finishing this one, just need to fix the small bits and pieces and the prop....

Erik Leijdens Still looks good Wim. The colours you chose also look very good on your Java defender. Sorry about the decals, luckily enough I don't have a big stash of them!

Wim van der Luijt After I long break I am finally about to finish the Bufallo. Only a few small items to add

Wim van der Luijt added an antenna wire (UschiVDR), this stuff is ultra thin and stretchy...the result doesn't exactly make me proud, but it's question of practice I guess

Thomas Bischoff Looks 10 times better with the antenna!
And I definitely love the look of your buffalo
