Holger Kranich Hey Mike, you are really quick!
31. December 2019 at 11:38:49
Michael Hickey So far, but I think that will change now I have to put on all the stencils decals. ;)
31. December 2019 at 20:20:33
Michael Hickey The decals on this project were not the best, plus the kit decals were printed in 1994 and as such all the stencils aren't on but I did manage to get some on. I'm sure glad this is off my bench and in my cabinet now. ;)
7. January at 15:26:53
Hans Robben Although I don't like these special paints (and that is an understatement) nice result non the less.
7. January at 15:33:13
Michael Hickey Thanks Hans, this one nearly got the better of me.
7. January at 15:35:30
Lode Schildermans It is a nice result indeed. I'm also more fan of the WWII camo's, but Slavo's Mig is also an awesome one
7. January at 22:19:18
Michael Hickey Thanks Lode, yeah I have few decal schemes like this in the stash, I've also got the red white and blue German F-4E with the white horse running down the side of the fuselage, maybe one day I'll do her as well.

15. May 2019 at 15:25:43
Michael Hickey Welcome Jens, pull up a seat. Nathan the PYN-UP decals should go on really nicely considering the price I paid for them. And yep they go right down to the end of the doors on both sides. I'll be building this kit with the doors closed. I have another Eduard kit that I'll do with the door open because the art is only on the door. I had to do some minor filing of the back section of the lower wings to make it fit, not sure if it's a kit fault or something I did that caused the problem. :S

Michael Hickey Yeah, I wanted to see if I still had the skill after using the sausage method for so long, it seams my skills have slipped so I think I'm going to bight the bullet and re-do her using AK's Camouflage Elastic Putty which is what I've been using in the past.

Neuling Looking forward .....
28. November 2019 at 13:05:42
Michael Hickey Yeah I can't wait to start in the morning. I just ordered my wheels the ones with the steel caps on and earlier today I ordered the MCTAGS Turret. Not sure if the turret is the correct one but it looked very similar from the pics of the resin part. I also have to lengthen the chassis a bit to fit the third axle in down the back. Still underside how to display the container, I was thinking of putting the container on the ground and on the back of the truck have an LAV-25, I think that would look real bad ass. :D
28. November 2019 at 13:26:42
Michael Hickey Hey Neuling, you might know this answer or Holger might too. If I placed a German 2.5 tone forklift on my dio would it be plausible or factually incorrect. :S It would look cool just to do it anyway. :)
28. November 2019 at 13:41:37
Neuling Michael, actually I do not know the answer to your question. My rule is: if in doubt, don`t. But you`re right, if something really looks good ..... Modelling is an amusing hobby and phantasy has its own creative right.
28. November 2019 at 17:17:21
Michael Hickey I think I'll see how it goes while I'm working on it, besides I only have to please one person and that's me. It's not like it would ever see a judging table as I usually stay clear of those. :)

Michael Hickey Thanks Guys, Roberto, I'll have to get some.
25. November 2019 at 16:30:25
Michael Hickey Hey Roberto, just ordered a couple of containers of the Tamiya 250ml Airbrush Cleaner. Thanks for the info.
25. November 2019 at 16:53:54
Roland Revolvermann Oh, just read your problems with the AK RC.
Im using the Real Colors high compatability thinner for thinning and cleaning. Works pretty well.
A Cleaner is just a thinner ;) The Tamiya cleaner is really "hardcore". So stay safe using that stuff. It solves more you want (Shirts, cutting mat color and sometimes the coating from my desk :D )
25. November 2019 at 17:13:41
Michael Hickey Thanks for the heads up Roland, does it hurt the rubber seals inside the airbrush. I thought I would strip down the airbrush and soak it for a little while. I'm using a Pacshe Talon airbrush at the moment.
25. November 2019 at 17:52:31
Roland Revolvermann Sorry, can't say anything about the Pasche. Im using Harder Steenbeck and Tamiya. There, the most parts are insensitive (nozzle,ring seal, needle,...) But both manufacturer recommend: "Never place the entire airbrush in solvents or cleaners!"
25. November 2019 at 18:03:57
Hans Robben As a rule of thumb: black O-rings will perish in solvents, white ones are OK. The white ones tend to be harder than the black ones too.

Michael Hickey Thanks Roland & Hans, the only rubber seal is at the bottom of the trigger, it's black but should be fine if I don't soak it for too long. Paint and other cleaning solvents get into that part of the body so it should be fine. :S

Kerry COX Do you still look down the runway at Coffs there Mike. ?
If so, you have the best modelling set up ever. ;)
21. November 2019 at 05:50:32
Jiri Vybihal Nice workplace Michael. I see you have also Hataka colors, are you satisfied with em? I tried those several years ago and it was pretty bad so I'm wondering if they are better now.
21. November 2019 at 06:01:05
Michael Hickey @ Kerry, thanks Mate, no the house I lived in where I over looked Coffs Hbr airport was about 5 years ago I think, I've moved a couple of times since then.

@Jiri, thank you, I find that the Hataka paints are fine, you just have to get used to them like when you try any new paint or product. I mainly use Gunze, only steering away from those paints when they don't have a particular colour.
21. November 2019 at 06:25:13
Jiri Vybihal the problem i had with hataka colors was that the pigment was too rough and after while it jammed nozzle...

11. November 2019 at 07:51:02
Michael Hickey Thank You Kerry and Jens for your pleasant words of praise, Jens I have another 69 109's to build which include Hasegawa, Eduard and the then (back in the 90's) newly tooled Fujimi kits. I'm going to buy another 10 Fujimi Bf 109K-4's of a mate in the not to distant future. I think I have a problem having so many 109's but they are so easy and enjoyable to build. :D

Hans Robben Very nice. I have no real knowledge about Bf109's but I noticed on this one and white 5 the inner of the wing crosses to be lighter. Is that on purpose or is that slight silvering?
4. November 2019 at 10:25:47
Michael Hickey Thanks Hans, it could be shading for weathering, when I look at both models there doesn't seam to be any silvering. You also could be seeing the difference in camo color RLM 74 against RLM 75.

Michael Hickey So now the secret is out, thanks Peter, and thank you Konrad, and Tim you cracked me up. :D
1. November 2019 at 09:18:22
Michael Hickey White 3 is completed so I only have another 5 109's to go and then this project will be finished. If I pick them off one at a time I should have them all finished by the end of the weekend. :)
1. November 2019 at 10:33:56
Lode Schildermans The detail photos are even more impressive, Michael
1. November 2019 at 11:07:54
Michael Hickey Thanks Lode, I was going to fish off "White 5" but it's getting a bit late so I think it's probably best if I leave her for tomorrow when I finish her sisters "White 6" and "White 7".
1. November 2019 at 11:19:48
Hans Robben What happened to 1, 2 and 4?
1. November 2019 at 11:21:36
Michael Hickey Aircraft 1 and 4 didn't have cartoon characters possibly due to not being in the unit anymore i.e shot down, and aircraft 2 also didn't have any cartoon on her that I could find. Interestingly the Illiad decal sheet calls out aircraft 2 to be used, the instructions say to use the Bugs Bunny in the cradle artwork, but I found a photo of aircraft 7 with the exact same cartoon. Because I found the photo that showed aircraft 7 with the artwork and couldn't find anything on aircraft 2 except for one photo showing clearly it did not have any artwork I went with aircraft 7.
1. November 2019 at 16:22:12
Michael Hickey Hey Peter I still got over 55 109's in the stash ranging from Eduard, Fujimi and Hasegawa, unfortunately I only have about a handful of Luftwaffe bombers to go with them. Why so many 109's, simples, there fun easy quick little builds, and take up bugger all space in the cabinet. :)

Jim J What a great job! That's a really snappy scheme - the sawtooth camo on the wings, gray combined with the white trim and red markings. Excellent execution. Nice weathering as well.

Holger Kranich I always liked those RAF Hellcats and Corsairs. Is your Zink Chromate from Gunze?
19. September 2019 at 07:11:14
Michael Hickey Thanks Erik & Holly, and yes Holly I used Gunze paint for the interior. I'm having second thoughts about this scheme I don't think the colours are right, I'm going to buy Hataka's FAA paint set so the colours can be done more accurately.
19. September 2019 at 11:39:35
Holger Kranich Well i can recommend Hataka´s paints. My modern Luftwaffe paints are spot on. No dilluting required, maybe a retarder as they tend to clog a bit at high pressures.
19. September 2019 at 12:13:08
Michael Hickey Thanks for the tip mate, I've got their Modern Luftwaffe paint sets too. :)
