That is a great looking paint job! I like the layering technique you are using. Nice build log too. 👍
Looking sharp !!! 👍🏻
This will be one of your best 👍
Great paintjob and shading on both color tones - I was grilling some of our home-grown zucchini today, and they were pretty much in this green paint range... which I guess is a good thing! 😄
Seriously cool job, agree with bughunter, could be on the top! 👍
Agree with everyone, just beautiful.

Hi Mates, thank you Istvan and White Glint for your nice words.
@White Glint I tried it today but the light was not perfect and the filter of the cam always tries to smooth colors down. See last pic
Thank you very much for taking some more photos, much appreciated, Daniel. 👍 🙂
Yes, cameras can be a bit nasty from time to time. Still, what I can see is a very nice transition between the different green tones.
I'll definitely give this technique a try on my Grace or Dinah. 👍
Very cool, and honors my work mate 👍
It is really effective in my opinion and with th enaked eye the effext is much more visible than with digital cameas.

Nice cover photo
I agree with Bas 👍
Please, Please Please, build this!
I have it in my stash, but I don't dare to start...As I don't have high skills 😅
@Moreno, maybe you can practice on a floatplane like the Arado 196 from Revell or the Antonov AN-2 from Trumpeter, just to boost your confidence.
Italeri kits are normally not that difficult; maybe you can upload the instructions?
@Moreno, this was my first floatplane, also from Italeri (Testors), and I built it with few experience but I had a great time despite the inconveniences. Sure you can do better 😉

Sorry for the off-topic, Daniel.
No problem at all!
I am happy about the discussion and the interest👍
Thank you all @Bas, @Cuajete and @Daniel! No problem for me to assembly big models, but I have to improve on the painting and weathering phase...I'm building the Loire Colonial in the meantime 😉
Now, that's an interesting subject! I've more or less known of the German "merchant raiders", but never heard they used a Jap plane in faux British markings! 👍
Interesting upcoming projects. Following!

Thank you both.
My pleasure William😉
Great job as usual 👍
Got one of them, but it seems too small for me. Or I have to work on better framing 😄
Hi Rui, thank you mate your words are much appreciated👍
@lukasz yep they are exactly Din a4 and more than mediocre a single engine fighter does not fit!
But rhey got bigger ones👍

Thanks Spanjaard! I would have missed it otherwise.
My pleasure, Oliver
Thank you too Spanjaard, and of course many thanks Olivier Clifford and Spanjaard again 👍👍
Very nice and motivating comments mates 👍
Another awesome build, Daniel!
Thank you very much Dave, your warm and nice words are always very welcome 👍

Nice looking 262 Daniel 👍
I agree. Top shading! More pictures from Lechfeld please!
Well, perfect result as always. Maybe I've missed something, but is there a final result of your kits compare?
Thank you very much James, Neuling and David for your very nice and warm words...👍
@David it is a bit chaotic but in the main album i made a short summary
Really nice Daniel 👍
Thank you Roland, very much appreciated👍
August 21, 2021
wow. i will certainly follow this one! quite a few challenges ahead, but i am sure you will overcome and make a fantastic dio
Whoa overwhelming feedback guys!
Thank you mates!
I really hope to be able to meet your expectations😉
Well, well, very ambitious indeed. Especially in that scale. I like to mess around with small parts. But this is a whole step further.
Be brave and make our mouth water! 🙂
Welcome Lex and Cuajete, and i promise I'll try my very best🙂
It is quite ambitious indeed but once in a while you see a pic or read a story and think whoa you shoul dput this into scale...🙂

Wenn es so war.. versuch mal bei deinem album 🙂
Negative, Ghostrider! Ich will ja nicht fallen 😉
Habs getestet bei meinem Blenheim Album.

Veeeery nice bird!
Thank you Thomas, Yes you will nort see them built that often. Glad you like it..
@Olivier hehe, great pun Olivier..🙂
@Mirko thank you !
Hm, maybe those exhaust stripes are a bit too dark... I know it is late but were those rather kind of blueish light grey with RAF Aircrafts?
Nice job Daniel.
Thank you David much appreciated 👍
My thoughts are with everybody who is affected. Been through it past September, more than half the city I live in got flooded, some parts with over 1m of water, it was dreadfull...
Beautiful workspace ..I'm moving my workspace to opposite side of basement , We've had heavy rains this summer , and storm sewer backed up as well ..moving to higher ground
This is amazement, ok what pills are you taking in order to keep this space tidy?
My workspace is only ever this clean when I'm between projects lol
This reminds me, I have to go get 8 additional glass plates cut, to fit into my old Ikea Detolf glass cabinet. Using metal parts on the rods keeping the glass plates in place.

The figure really makes it come alive Daniel. Maybe add some straps to the canvas on the canopy, and a towbar to the nose wheel?
Ho Greg you are making me blush sir...🙂
@Jan yap thats a good point because there was a manual how to put on the Canvas.
It was exactly stretched over the Cabin with straps surrounding the whole fuselage diameter.
ANd some wheel chocks would be nice too.. thanks mate 👍
There is a picture of the the canvas fixtures in the Valiant Wings book on the me 262
Hi Jan, oops nearly overlooked your hint, but it was too late anyway...Thanky mate 👍
August 16, 2021
Whoo, thank you guys for your nice comments. Good old OOb times 🙂
Hi Daniel, just checked your albums... Wow! There's some huge amount of work in here! Very nice collection of builds ?
Dynamite collection Daniel.
And on Neil's suggestion, I'll
pursue the back catalogue here.
Thank you very much Neil and Peppy, makes me glad that you enjoyed the trip back 👍
Nice work and it should be FUN. Well done 🙂

Ah ok the surface is smooth Mate!
Ok, thanks! 👍
Congrats Daniel. Looks awesome. I like the subtle shading and the way you applied the exhaust. Well done.
@Daniel Thanks for the info on the propeller color. I had a good laugh when I saw the name of this paint is literally "Propeller Color." I kind of feel dumb for not having found this previously. Due to Testors discontinuing their Model Master line of paint I'm nearly finished with transitioning to AMMO of Mig, Tamiya and Mr. Color acrylics. I'm kind of embarrassed to see how different Model Master's colors were from these more reputable brands. IF I remember correctly all of my previously built WW2 Japanese aircraft, which called for brown props, had them painted in Testors Matt Rust because the color looked "fairly close." -_-;
I was also curious about the base you were using too so I'm glad someone else asked.
@Cuajete my pleasure mate! 👍
Thank you Jim really great you like the paintjob 👍
@Edward. you could also use the Tamiya XF10! There are many colors and the props werent all
the same color in original.
