Mike Daniels Thankyou very much Bernhard Pethe, Choppa Nutta and Ekki.

A lovely little kit this. And those deep panel lines made pin-washing a breeze. Not sure that will be the case on my latest build.
17. September at 23:39:49
Łukasz Gliński Thx Mike, you may be correct on the varnish. I tried Citadel satin (canned) on this one, but I don't recommend it at all. Maybe one day I'll build another one? Swedish & Jordanian camos tempt me a bit ;)

Airfix have been turning out some great new kits lately- several of which are residing in my cupboard waiting to be built - Phantom FG.1 1/72, Walrus 1/48, BE2C 1/72...

Mike Daniels Hi Łukasz Gliński. I use Vallejo varnishes. They are great. And diluted with a little water hardly leave brush marks at all. Not sure if they are available for spray painting ?(i would expect so). Are you tempted with the Airfix swedish scheme ? I am.
18. September at 13:46:06
Łukasz Gliński In my case hard to decide which one is more tempting - Airfix Swedish or PrintScale's Jordanian. But as I have already the Irish on the shelf, I decided to take some time before building another one, the current stash is too big probably ;)

Mike Daniels Thanks you Cuajete, Bryn, Dave, Konrad and Ekki for joining in. All very welcome. Its a great looking aircraft.
11. September at 23:41:23
Mike Daniels I guess it could be from the Zvezda tool Cuajete. I am not sure how that works. Do Zvezda make em and then sell em to Revell ? The pressing is pretty good quality given the price bracket.
11. September at 23:59:57
Clifford Keesler Count me in.
12. September at 00:09:39
Glenn . Yea i'm pretty sure it's the Zvezda tool. If not it would be the Hasegawa one either way it should be a good kit! Look close at the sprue it will say if it's Hasegawa or Zvezda somewhere! Revell re-boxes both brands along with a few Special Hobby items (as well as other brands too) they have done this for years.
12. September at 06:51:07
Mike Daniels Hi Glenn. It looks like they have cut off all the tabs on the sprues so cant be sure.
12. September at 10:55:26
Mike Daniels Just umming and ahhing over which scheme.

Heres a really nice build of the 'blue' scheme.
Sukhoi Su-27SM Flanker-B | FineScale Modeler

But then again the 'B' scheme is also very nice;

12. September at 23:27:09
Glenn . Might be some aftermarket schemes for this not sure? I try and find some with interesting nose/tailart if i can! But i prefer the "bluer" one if i was choosing!
17. September at 05:09:31
Agustin Prellezo I have the Zvezda one and I can asure it is the same tool. I got the begemot decals of demo flankers. Several interesting schemes.

Mike Daniels Back to 1/72. A chance to try out some AK Xtreme metal paint. Not used it before. Be interesting to see how it works out using hand brushing.!!? Any one ever done that ?

Great to see that WZ590 is fully restored and now residing at IWM Duxford;

Peter Jenssen Great result!
I really like the 'suds' scheme. Rigging looks great!
Quite a lot of rigging on a Camel, isn't it? :-D
05. August at 04:44:59
Konrad Limmer Cool Mike. Very nice!!
05. August at 09:41:02
Glenn . Another nice one Mike!
05. August at 09:50:00
Mike Daniels Hi Peter. Thanks very much for your kind comments. Yes indeed, there is a lot more rigging than a quick first glance would suggest. I am soooo glad that got hold of the EZ line for this project. I think I would of given up otherwise. Its great stuff for rigging. I think that maybe the 0.2mm is a bit too thin for rigging at 1/32 ?

Thanks for your help along the way. You were right about the cockpit cover. How are you getting on with the FE2 ? I think i will have a go at that one next. Now that is serious rigging!! Or maybe the new DH2 due in October ?

Peter Jenssen Hi Mike,
I have chickened out on the FE2.
For the time being anyway.
I'm doing the Jeannin Stahltaube next.
A bit of rigging, however it's a monoplane, so I expect it to be easier to reach everything.. :-/ ;)
05. August at 13:33:29
Mike Daniels Ohh yeah - Thats a great model, and also on my 'to get' list. I will sit in on your build. Look forward to it. Thanks again.
