High everyone. :) I do apologize for my being as quiet as I have been, but with the 'lock downs' and cancellations of competitions, the zing has gone out of me to have some models ready for the next comp, and having to be as active as I can be physically after my little heart stopper, I have had other things on my mind.

Selfish of me really, but after all, there are no more extensions left for me to cash in, so looking after myself means no sitting for LONG hours, all hunched over my table, forgetting to breath.

So I have had a longer hiatus to heal and feel good about myself again, only dabbling at the odd little bit now and then, to keep the momentum happening.

Currently I am trying to keep track of my many half started/finished kits, without getting into a lather thinking of the next comp.

But that seems like it may never happen the way this virus has got every one shitting their pants, not knowing what the hell this world will look like in twelve months time.

I am sure many of you are asking yourselves the same questions. :-/

In the mean time, I just have to get used to a whole new world.

Wear your masks and wash your hands often.

Hi Kezza,
yes it's been a while but the most important thing is your health. it is always Nice to communicate with you.
Of course, the hobby also helps in health but should not compromise it. this is our hobby, to enjoy. Contests should not be a concern.
keep active and safe because this virus is tricky, Luck or bad luck like a Russian roulette and so all we have to do is minimize the odds.
Cheers Mate

Good to hear your keeping safe and well Kezza... as Rui has said, that is the most important of all. ;)

Friends, one and all. :)
How sweet it is to read your comments.
It never ceases to amaze me, just how lucky I am and have been.
"I once complained when I had no shoes. !
THEN, I met a man who had no feet. !"
I am indeed most fortunate, and If I sounded like I was feeling sorry for myself, then I do apologize.
I must stop and take stock of where I am at in my life, and who I am. And count my blessings and get in touch with those who I call my friends.
Especially Mr Peter Hardy.

27. October, 21:07
Lode Schildermans
Kerry, it didn't felt at all as a complaint from you. We were just worried not to have your always positive comments around. You motivate us much more than you can possibly imagine. We walk the path of building, you made the path where we are walking, and that is quite a difference. Thank you for that, my aussie friend
27. October, 22:14
Peter Hardy
Rui is correct on so many levels! This hobby has done us all a huge favour though, it has connected us all with some wonderful people. Friends we may never see with our own eyes or actually touch physically. I am grateful to have joined Scalemates. Tim, and I have said this before, Has done far more than put a group of like minded people in touch. He has given us the median to make friends with someone, even lots of people whom we will never actually meet. The whole difficult year has created challenges for the whole world, least of all grumpy old Boomers from around the world. Sure, we have our families but we also have our friends who don't just tolerate us but actually care. I know the challenges that Kerry has faced this year, you know of some but some he hasn't shared with you. His inner strength is something you would wish for your children, his courage to fight what seems insurmountable alone is truly awe inspiring. I am very proud to call him my friend.

Kerry, with the new configuration of Scalemates, I've lost some modelling done by the matees, but not all of the mates. Reason why I didn't comment on this Mazda yet. It is looking fabulous and all the efforts, sometimes 4 times the efforts, pay off. A true asset to your already vast collection of beatiful models. Well done, Sir

This is another fantastic effort Kerry. The paintwork is just perfect, and the detailing, well what can I say... Hope you are well in these crazy times, and an opportunity will arise soon to take this baby to a show

James C
That's a stunning looking build Kerry

Alec and James. :)
Like me, I am sure that this hobby has saved our sanity in some way, with most of us all being couped up like a fearful ferret, scared of the grim reaper. :(
As concentrating on this build as much as I had was certainly of benefit when it came to my recovery for sure, but worth every second. :)
Thank you all for your support and encouragement. It has certainly helped me persevere. ;)

Sorry to disappoint you all but this beast died an indignant death quite some time ago when I decided to strip the cammo paint job because of the botched effort, but it still had some problems with all the internal gun and magazine assembly. :(
I should have deleted this album a long time ago.

The Owl has flown the coup Augie. And thankfully I didn't have to pay for it originally, as it was a gift from Zoukie Mura for the build I did of the wood grain Ho-229, so no big loss really.
But I am still looking for more space to put something as big as the Uhu, as they were one of the better beasts the Germans came up with amongst all the other strange birds they produced. :)

That is a bummer, it sure looked good.

@Kezza, sory i've revived this painful issue for you, it was not the intention.
You may remmember, at the time I've loaded a lot of info on my MT1 álbum, and end up buying the Revel 1/32 kit. Not very expensive and a great biiggg kit still in my stash.
13. June, 12:19
Kerry COX
Rui. Not a drama mate. :) :) :)
One consolation is that I still have the nose weight to remember it by. hahahahahahaha ;)
Besides, I am still struggling with finding enough room for what I still haven't built and what I am currently building, short of buying a new display case. !
And after my little medical episode, I am now wondering just how many models and how much stuff I have that will have to find a new home if I do shuffle off this mortal coil.. :-/
The ZM build was a lot of fun from the point of view that ZM did give you so much more detail to stuff around with. :) :) :)
Now I have many more distractions to play with. Now I have become hooked on the ICM kits. ! O-O

Looking great Kerry
31. May, 11:53
Kerry COX
John D, Thank you my friend. ;)
I wish I could find a great silver paint that goes on thin and doesn't 'powder' up like it's billions of silver particles all trying to reach the surface. ! :(
I am seriously thinking of the AK Interactive 'true metal' wax paint from the tube that is buffable as you apply it. ! As I have to be sure that the Tamiya clear red I want to use, (Candy red) will hold on to it and not flake or chip off after time. :-/
3 attempts at getting the silver down but had to remove each attempt due to poor quality of the finish, wanting a high gloss with little paint but none I have tried have worked so far. The tungsten silver looked like a porcupine. !
If I use the testors buffing metalizer, the clear red from Tamiya goes all brittle and cracks and flakes after a while. !
He hehehehehe. ;) Wish me luck. !

1. June, 10:45
Kerry COX
Is it a smooth high gloss finish. ? And the last thing I need is the 'orange peel effect' from paints that don't get time to 'lay down' like enamels. As the lacquer paints I have used by Tamiya dry way too fast and are not as smooth as I am used to. :(
Any advice in this area. ?
1. June, 11:20
Kerry COX
I will do that JD. Give anything a go once. ;) Cheers and thank you.

Valters Orlovskis
You should try Model Master Chrome Silver Enamel paint, it is really smooth with no silver particles visible. I've used it as base coat on some my bike models, looks great with Tamiya Acrylics over it.
1. June, 13:45
Kerry COX
Valters, Thank you for the tip and I just so happen to have found in my paint locker some of the Model Masters silver you are referring to. ;)
As good as the testors (same mob) buffing metalizer aluminium plate. :)
Thanks again for all your help lads.

Fabulous chrome work Kerry and I especially like the transparent coloured lenses.
30. May, 21:45
Kerry COX
Lode, Acki and Jim C. Thank you for your most uplifting and welcome comments.
It's been a while that I had the desire to tackle any model and I really needed to get this 'right', as I will be entering this one in the next QMHE comp, which at the current standings here in Oz, has been post pones till' next year, all due to the Chinese head cold that every one has been living in fear of. :(
No doubt I will be constantly attending to all the little 'niggles' I will see and correct them. But over all, I am really pleased with the result. :) :) :)

Interesting object to build, Kerry. I'm curious how you're going to challenge this one
25. May, 20:47
Kerry COX
Lode, allready there has been one built and posted here on SM and a beautiful rendition of it too I may add.
The detail I am seeing before I even begin is fantastic, but hopefully it will yield the results I can be proud of. :)
The paperwork that comes with the kit is just amazing and shows just how good ICM models are becoming. ;)

Don't leave me behind! ICM are building a very solid reputation for these historic kits. Just stashed a T model of theirs that won't be in the box vey long.
26. May, 00:56
Kerry COX
Peter, I am sure you will find a world of great enjoyment and personal satisfaction with the "T". ;)
ICM have become a huge surprise for me, as I never imagined that the eastern block nations had any sort of modelling industry, but in truth, they have been around longer than the main manufacturers we had all grown up with. !
26. May, 02:21
Peter Hardy
Kez, I am 'over' armour, 'over' aeroplanes. I love what ICM are doing. Interesting stuff!

26. May, 08:19
Kerry, I think I know the one who built one and posted here on SM ;) Now curios about your result ...
26. May, 13:30
Kerry COX
Buggs. I am going to be following your build of the MB 1886 Benz Motorwagen 1886 | Album by bughunter (1:24) very closely mate.
I have heaps of images from all over the place, but your build has got to be perfect in every way, and, the inspiration I needed to tackle this kit, so I hope mine turns out half of what your results were. ;) And that will have me smiling. :) :) :)
26. May, 19:52
Oh so much praise - we don't have a red face smiley here ...
Attached to the kit is a great walkaround, don't miss that pictures (but it is a replica). Wikipedia has pictures of the black one, as in ICM manual, of Deutsches Museum München,
I hope your parts have less mould displacement then my kit (see first WIP picture)!

I am moving this to another conversation, not to go too far off-topic...

>> I was born and raised at Enoggera, western suburbs.

About 15 years ago, I worked for Queensland Railway as a freelance consultant. I lived in a furnished apartment in the CBD, just a short walk from the QR offices. It was in a building called "The Sebel", the lower floors were a hotel, the upper floors appartments. I had a great view of the city from the 13th floor!

I got hooked on Straddie and went there every other weekend. Can't get a more beautiful view on this planet than the one from Point Lookout.

Spent the Summer (Christmas) vacation in Cairns. It was like living in a Sauna.

Always wanted to go back for another project, but somehow that never worked out.
27. April, 14:11
Kerry COX
Gold Coast is my home now, having lived all over Oz, from east to west coasts.
I was food and beverage manager for the Sebel in Sydney many moons ago '85.
Did you ever get to Moreton Island. ? stunning fishing and diving on the 'Bulwer wrecks'. !
Cairns was a sad place for me, having to attend the funeral of a woman I met and fell in love with there, dying of a massive brain tumor. :( :( :-
Come on back to Oz mate. :)
Brisbane hasn't changed that much, well not too much since the Expo 88. ;)
Always get a lump in my throat every time I go to Brisbane. :)
Home town and all. hehehehehehe :)
27. April, 14:27
>> Did you ever get to Moreton Island.
Yup, but only once, after I had lost my heart to Straddie.
>> Come on back to Oz mate.
I will have to. There are still around 10K AUD sitting in an ANZ account of mine that I need to claim. ;)
Seriously, I really enjoyed the time in Australia. People are so relaxed and friendly. Like a bunch of Englishmen with all the bad aspects of their characters removed.

Hello Kerry COX, I will never build the model 100%, but just see what the style of Kitty Hawk is for newer models, and of course your craftsmanship are reason enough to be there :)
27. April, 07:12
Kerry COX
It will take a while to get organized and some mojo. But if the 1886 merc is late, I will prep what I can. :)
27. April, 07:19

that kit is on it's way... so I will brace myself... With regards to the Ka-52, you should thank me for buying the resin conversion kit, otherwise that kit would have taken longer to appear on the market ;)

These naval guns appearing on the market is a joy, only a matter of time when they will include the interior or the storage facility underneath...
9. March, 07:53
Kerry COX
Bart, That would be a fantastic model to build if ever it was made, and I would certainly have my name on the list of customers. !
9. March, 08:13
Scott Dutton
Ditto Bart, I went the conversion path as well. Happens all the time. I had given up but got t8red of waiting so relented. Maybe the conversion parts will be useful or is even better than the kit
9. March, 13:16
Bart Goesaert
At least we have resin bangseats... And a thorough mix from original and other parts as in my Dinah can be useful...
9. March, 15:19
Scott Dutton
And maybe cockpit, expensive options but at least we have a model now. Given the kit manufacturer and the conversion manufacturer, we may even be better off

My life unto others as you would have them do unto you, and, always try to be a better person than you were yesterday.
Your kind words have made me even more grateful for being with the greatest forum on the net.
I did speak unkindly to one member here years ago and MH certainly gave me a well deserved spray over it, putting me in my place.
I am always mindful now of what and how I say what I do here, and it seems to have paid off. :) .

All the mates who have commented on this page I am truly overcome with what all of you have said. :)
You have all contributed to my well being far beyond what all of you could imagine.
I am, I can assure you, am a much better person for knowing you all, especially one person who introduced me to the clan, and that is Thomas Mayer, the guy who encouraged me to present my Horten 229 to the Zoukei Mura President, and from there, I now enjoy being in the very best of company, and wish for nothing more.
From the depths of my heart, I am most grateful for you all being here for me in my good and bad times.
I do, love you all. :)

Aww Kez, I done tole' you ages ago we were a wonderful bunch! Alec's comments are straight to the point, and, exceedingly accurate. You have been a wonderful teacher for me and definitely a mentor I can be proud of. To be a part of this community, despite all of our individual problems and issues, is warming to the core. I feel I belong here and my older brother, Kerry Cox has taught me so much and not just about modelling.

Kerry, see you having a go at the toilet paper water. To get the effect you want try 3 layers of paper ( using the water / wood glue mix) and then a 1" decorating brush to push and shape the paper into the waves and wake. Seems to work quite well.

Gareth, you have been reading my emails mate. :) :) :) hahahahahaha
The video you posted is exactly the one I have based my new attempt on, using diluted PVA glue and the broad brush to create the wave effect. !!!
Images 80 and 81 are the results of what I was aiming for. .
Thank you for the video too my friend, as it is one of the very best I have seen and demonstrates just how simple it is, but dynamic in it's eventual outcome.
Much obliged. ;) ;)

The new attempt looks much better and very promising! I did water with toilet paper & PVA glue once many years ago, did not turn out half as good, but I can still recall the sour smell of it today :D This is looking good

Kerry COX
Slavo, I am really pleased with how this is turning out, and I avoided the smell by placing the sheet in direct sunlight for the whole day, and with the heat wave conditions we are experiencing here in Australia at the moment, it took no time at all to dry. :)
All I need to do now is cut out the hull shape and trim as necessary then paint. ! ;)
Cheers and thank you for your encouragement my friend. ;)

Looks pretty good Kez.

As with most of your builds, I'm watching keenly. I love the subject and this is shaping up to be another winner my friend. I have a Grumman Goose I want to make sitting on the water and this looks like the way ahead.

The box art is not too bad, and the model is much like whats on the box top.

Lode, Thanks good buddy.
This is an other 'quickie' I like to do without all the bling and tinsel.
A really simple but time consuming kit, but worth while if your looking for a distraction from the usual run of the mill kits.
I am pleased you had a look mate.
Cheers. ;)

Too fiddely for me Kerry. Nice job though. No paint on this one?
14. November 2019, 02:31

There is more fiddling in a bike than this kit mate.
The paint is coming, just like the LAV. ;)

Seems you are building my complete wanted list... Looking good, but care will be needed when to paint what part or subassembly...

Slavo Hazucha
Ha, just discovered this! I like this AA setup a lot... really going against the mainstream, 3 muzzles, odd caliber, for actually aiming it you probably have to use the force... :) Looking really good there Size comparison with the phalanx perhaps?
7. December 2019, 00:18
Kerry COX
Slavo, the size comparison to the Phalanx is on an equal footing.
The detail on both is quite a good reason for having one...........or two. :) hehehehehe

and we have twins... nice build so far...

Thanks Mr Bart. ;)
I was so pleased with the detail, I had to have two. hhahahaha _
18. November 2019, 08:46
Bart Goesaert
you just wanted one on your shelf too, just admit it ;)
18. November 2019, 09:13
Kerry COX
Bart. I have to admit that your correct . :)
If it had not been for Peter buying it for me to build for him, I would never have seen it as one I would build for myself.
Strange how others chose what you will like. !

The painting begins today. !!!

It will look fantastic when you get it done Keeza. I know it will.

Clifford, thank you for your confidence my friend.
It is one of the more tedious jobs I have done. Ugh !
23. October 2019, 02:09
Kerry COX
Lode. You sure are a boost to my confidence mate.
There are /were a few build issues with this kit, but thankfully, I have been able to conceal the worst of them. :)
Now my compressor has had a fit and I need to get that running. :(
But aside from all I have on my bench as running builds, I can see the 35 coming to an end in the not too distant future. :) :) :)

It's an F-35A, but still fun to watch. The Dutch receive their first operational aircraft and in the arrival ceremony it was supposed to taxi through an arch of water. Fire trucks get it wrong.

That's looking like some serious work Kerry

looking good, maybe a check on the 30mm flash suppressor. Seems like a small droop in it with regards to the rocketlauncers in pic 101 (I know, nitpicking...) would be nice to show one in action:

Bart. An optical illusion my friend.
Check 99.............and 98. ;)
28. October 2019, 09:11

99: left side seems ok, right side... but only a hair...
28. October 2019, 09:38

And that hair, I am not going to split. ;) hehehehe

Interesting weapon... But i dont know if i should love it or hate it...
30. October 2019, 14:41

As with all my choice in models. It's knowing how it works, why and it's effect that attracts me.
Plus, one will never get as close to some of the items we build in real life too. ;)

Pretty sure if I got close to that thing I'd want to be BEHIND it'
