Slavo Hazucha This Hunter has been in the wild for a while it seems... :) top job in 1:72!
1. June at 19:38:27
Mike Daniels Thank you Neuling and Slavo. Yes heavy weathering. Was aiming at about ten years out in the rain. A bit of an experiment really using dilute enamel hand brushed washes. Its a bit hit and miss!
1. June at 21:58:21
Martien Lourens Very nice build. I like this heavy weathering. Your experiment was successful
2. June at 01:38:13
Gordon Sørensen Interesting weathering, Mike. It looks like it has been 10 years in the sun, rather than in the rain...
2. June at 02:30:54
Guy Rump Lovely build Mike, the weathering looks quite a bit like the "dummy" aircraft that used to be left out on airfields during the Cold War.
2. June at 06:55:46
Mike Daniels Thanks Martien, Gordan and Guy. Yes Gordan I see what you mean. Bleached rather than stained. A subtle difference and one to explore further! Yes Guy I used some pics for reference. Very pleased it resembles that look. What I was aiming for(ish).
2. June at 11:32:53
Cuajete Well done, Mike. Congrats!
8. June at 18:42:40
Mike Daniels Thanks very much Cuajete.

Mike Daniels Enjoyed this little kit. Bit of an experiment with home made stretchers from twisted wire.
24. April at 22:30:25
Stefan Schacht very nice
25. April at 09:49:03
Björn Svedberg A really nice one, Mike!

25. April at 17:48:54

25. April at 18:58:52
Chris Greathouse The rigging (right term?) is awesome, and the plane as a whole is well done... And a because everyone else is :D
25. April at 20:14:21
Tim Heimer Sweet! Nice work as usual!
25. April at 20:16:14
Mike Daniels Thanks very much Stefan, Bjorn, Stephan and James. Pleased with the result. Been playing around with enamel 'washes' which has been interesting. Very nice PE set but the wings fell off a few times! And that undercarriage - delicate!
25. April at 20:40:41
Mike Daniels Thanks a lot Chris. Yep, rigging will do. Hi Timothy and thanks. Not sure 'as usual'. Still learning something new on every build. Always room to mess up.
25. April at 20:51:08
Kerry Cox You have done yourself proud here Mike.
Fiddly but worth every twist by the looks. :)
26. April at 04:52:41
Mike Daniels Thanks Bob in Spokaloo. Yes i was quite pleased with the home made buckles. Been looking at some WnW builds and custom stretchers etc add a whole new layer of realism.
Thanks Kerry Cox. They are actually quite quick to make up. Certainly something I will use again in the future.

Cuajete Looking good so far, Mike. Following!
14. March at 18:27:48
Mike Daniels Hi Cuajete. Not done any Eduard kits for a while. Mainly Airfix of late. Mssing those alignment holes a bit but it all adds to the fun. Welcome. Odd but no one seems to have built this kit on SM before so im a bit in dark.
14. March at 18:38:12
Ricardo Reis I built the 1/72 from Airfix. Very small. Very interested on this one. Following.
14. March at 19:23:00
Mike Daniels Hi Ricardo. Yes I saw that and you made a brilliant job of it. You should do the Airfix BE2c. Its great little kit as well.Did it a few months back. Please dont expect too much from my build. Just working on the interior which is pretty cramped but its coming on. As ever you can hardly see any of it after assembly so I wont fret too much.

15. March at 00:28:17
Mike Daniels Pretty much done with the cockpit interior. Very cramped indeed. Quite like the PE seat harness.
18. March at 23:25:33
Björn Svedberg Nice start Mike! I'v got this kit on my wishlist, so I'm very interested to see the progress.
19. March at 07:59:08
Mike Daniels Hi Bjorn. So far, so good.

Nikolaos Kouzinis Mike you begin a new embroidery. Bravo. Nice job
8. April at 19:10:36
Mike Daniels Thats about right Nikolaos. Its very fiddly getting the angles right. All part of the fun!
8. April at 20:50:37
Mike Daniels Hi Bob. Its a nice little kit. Quite a bit of PE which adds some nice touches.
8. April at 22:10:03
Gordon Sørensen Great looking Fokker, Mike! The metal effect at the front of the fuselage turned out very nice!
9. April at 03:45:19
Mike Daniels Thanks Gorden. Yes that metal effect is a little elusive. I think its a tempering effect in the metal casting on the actual aircraft. Its really varies with the lighting. Some have it others do not.

Richmond Mike have you seen WNW Special offer this month - massive discounts for the whole of April if you buy direct.
10. April at 19:57:01
Mike Daniels Hi Richmond. Yes I have. 10% off for the whole of April!
10. April at 20:00:58
Richmond Mike - Not sure about the Felixstowe specifically but when I followed the link they provided in an email to me many of the discounts were way more than 10%.
10. April at 20:13:12
Mike Daniels You are right Richmond. Just had another look. Some are as much as 50%! Glad I had another look. This is part of WnW 10th anniversary so not likely to happen again for another ten years. About to spend a lot of money!! Many thanks for the prompt.
11. April at 00:23:09
Nigel @Bob I have that one in my stash too. It's a really daunting looking project, so one that will wait until I have some other WNW under my belt.

As much as I want a W.29, I don't need another F.2a. And I much prefer the later version anyway.
11. April at 18:44:13
Mike Daniels I was very tempted by that Felixstow Bob, especially at that price. But in the end I decided it is just too big for my humble size residence. In the end I went for the Stahltaube and the DH9. Even with the delivery charge these were almost half price so I am very very happy. Thanks again Richmond for making me have a second look.
