Spanjaard 3 ferrari's ! i really want to see what you do with them :)
14. June at 22:42:46
Kerry Cox Spanjaard. It will be interesting to see what I WILL do with them mate, as there are lots of macro details I can improve. Like the rivets and screws on headlight surrounds and engine compartment details. !
More fun. :) :) :)

I just got all my email's from Japan to say these beasts are "on their way".
I'll keep you posted mate.
Cheers. :)
14. June at 23:08:58
Lode Schildermans Kerry, you will make Ferrari jealous :)
14. June at 23:11:30
Spanjaard you make them good, than i will take the pictures of your masterpieces as documentation to make a decent one in a year or two :)
14. June at 23:13:28
Lode Schildermans Spanjaard, a improved one. Your ferrari is already decent, mate
14. June at 23:15:39
Kerry Cox Every model I build is different from the last. Like painting on a canvas with tubes of paint. Never the same result no matter how many times you paint the same scene. So far, I have attempted 4 of the Tommy Ivo "Showboat", and 4 times I have had a different result. A big fail with each one. So I put it down to the kits tooling. Just a terrible mould from day one, and I wish they would 'update them'. :(
And Spanjaard, I will always look at your build of your Ferrari and hope I can do as good a job on mine as you have achieved with your 250 mate. Truthfully, I am really impressed with how you produced such an iconic vehicle and the finish that I can find no fault with. Only you will know what your unhappy with and it's looks, as I can't. I love it.

11. June at 10:18:18
Martin Oostrom Not anymore. He's bought that fancy airbrush ;)

11. June at 14:37:03
Gordon Sørensen Some nice models there, Spanjaard! Like Kerry and Peter said, sometimes it is nice to look back and see how far we have come in our abilities...
11. June at 20:52:05
Spanjaard indeed :) i hope i have learnt a thing of two since those models were done :)
11. June at 21:49:31
Peter Hardy Ha, I am still trying to achieve what you did 30 years ago! I still go back to the Kawasaki KR 500, some great ideas you have put into place with that build. Ok, airbrushes make the big improvement but your ideas and approach were spot on. Yes Spanjaard, I am still impressed with the bike! I now have two of them in my stash with a third lost in the mail.
11. June at 22:40:22
Spanjaard yes, i have that in my stash too, i will love to do again the KR500 but with alclad and airbrush, rather than humbrol and hairy brush i did a long time ago :D :D

closed shops. today I accidentally came across a shop that has been renamed as "shop closed" if we have an option of making it "out of business" that gives really clear red banners, why not keep the name correctly?? (hobbytreff? ) so if people look for it will be able to find it and clearly know it is closed. now, if you search for it, you will never find it since the name is not correct.

Does anybody know if Tamiya putty being outlaw in Europe and why?
Tamiya Putty (Basic Type) (Tamiya 87053, No)

Anybody tried Tamiya white putty?
Tamiya Putty (White) (Tamiya 87095, No)
Is it like Vallejo white, or more like old Tamiya gray basic old putty, but white?

No Tamiya Putty (Basic Type) (Tamiya 87053)No Tamiya Putty (White) (Tamiya 87095)
15. January at 13:43:57 Share
Bart Teunis Well we still sell the basic and the white ones at lifecolor-nl. There is a issue with the import to the netherlands and our channels go through the nordics..... But it is available. The basic stay a little soft and the white because very hard and is better for bigger gaps
15. January at 16:57:11
Spanjaard Thanks Bart!
15. January at 17:30:23
Markus Antonius the same goes for the tamiya panel line accent color - not sold in europe/germany due to regulations on ingredients. i ordered mine in japan and poland.
15. January at 22:21:35
Peter Jenssen I have Tamiya White Putty and Humbrol Model Filler. I find Tamiya White Putty quite hard and fine grained. Holds detail well, but can be a bit tricky to sand, as the plastic is generally slightly softer than the putty. Also it dries quite quickly. Often before I'm done.
It's the putty I generally use, just making sure i lay on as little as possible and shape with scraping before sanding for flat surfaces.
Extra bonus is that it thins with Tamiya Extra Thin Cement.
15. January at 22:37:04
Spanjaard thanks Markus and Peter
15. January at 23:45:47
Patrick Hagelstein Since recently I'm using the Mr. Paint putty. It's called Mr. Filler Liquid Putty and comes in a glass bottle and is a tan color. It brushes on and sands very nice and I use it for mid size gaps. I even like it more than the Mr. Surfacer ones.
PS. Mr. Paint is from Slovakia and not to be confused with the Japanese brand.
16. January at 00:01:29
Spanjaard thanks Patrick!
16. January at 00:04:48
bossy122 The thing I notice about Tamiya white putty is not as many bubbles.

JOHN THOMAS Nice photos
26. November 2017 at 14:48:45
Patrick Prijden thanks for sharing this, it was a great day!
love the spit photo 101 :)
26. November 2017 at 14:50:27
Edward May Oh I see, regarding which pictures were which. ^_^ Oh no, modelers here do not shy away from dioramas portraying the past 17 years of "War on Terror," though there may be some in the US that would find that offensive however just about any model could theoretically offend someone out there. I started to type out all the different groups that could somehow, some way, be offended either with our hobby itself or the subjects depicted and gave up after the fourth lengthy paragraph! LOL

I was joking when I asked about the US figure whose head had fallen off as to whether that was a political statement. However I was serious in asking about the Balkankreuz ban. Perhaps that's what it is, that it is illegal to depict in those nations in particular.

Personally I think it should be held in context like you were saying. These depict an object and moment in history just as a museum display piece should. If we are too careful to remove it from our historical records, our history lessons and our species collective memory though important facts will be forgotten and travesties may be repeated. As such in my humble opinion, that is a far cry from, as you said, strolling down the lane waving about a Nazi flag.

That's right, I remember you mentioning previously that you are hesitant to take your' work to such a venue. There was one photo, where it showed in the distance, a model on a high stand with it's wing overlapping the edge of the table where people were walking. I cringed thinking about that placement as with near certainty it eventually snagged someone's sleeve and went down. If that isn't evidence enough and reason enough to refrain from showing off one's works; Just look at the US soldier figure! lol

26. November 2017 at 19:45:22
Spanjaard thanks everybody :)
@Patrick, the spit in picture 101 was truly breathtaking... excellent paint job. do you know the author?
@Edward, no idea about the head, I guess it was just lack of glue :D . About the ban, I may be wrong, but it is only swastikas (Hakenkreuz), I do not think there is a problem with the Balkankreuz.
for what i see in the last one, swastika is banned in Germany, Austria, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland
26. November 2017 at 20:34:27
Edward May Gah! Slip of the tongue, I meant Hakenkreuz, so sorry! Trying to do too many things at once, I think. lol

I did think the ban was more widespread through Europe but now I know better and its always said to learn something new each day! ^_~ Cheers!

Spanjaard hold on a second.... first i must apologize for not recognizing my own album (it was there yesterday). but what i do not understand, is why everywhere that album shows the picture of that fantastic Citroen (selected by me as teaser), but down the event, it shows picture number 1 instead. That is why i did not recognized it

05. November 2017 at 11:41:53
Spanjaard i have a question about this, if for example i go to Euro Scale Modelling 2016 (29. October, Nieuwegein NL) i can see my album, then below, i see the "Reports" that the search engine has found, there i can see albums in other sites, about multiple years of this event. maybe albums, in SCM for other years, should also appear there?
just an idea.
