Wow! I'm very impress by the quality of this kit. I bougth it because I had a gift certificate to spend at a local hobby shop & almost fell off my chair when I opened the box and saw the amout of details this kit have. It's going to be a long long & fun build.

Nice looking set up, always interesting to see in what kind of environment fellow modellers are spending their time molesting styreen.

Nice Workshop/home office/game Room. Looks great .
But the dust will set in your models.

Thanks all. Rui S I dust them using a make-up brush from my wife. They are very fine brush so they don't rip off antennas & PE parts.

Thanks Christian & Nathan.

The Tamiyia masking tape plus a toothpick teahnique is making marvel for me. I used to dread complex WW2 cannopys & now love to work on them.

Clifford Keesler
Comming along nicely.
11. October, 20:56
Guillaume Blanchet
Thanks Clifford, I finished the decals last evening. It should be finished by friday.
13. October, 17:33
Clifford Keesler
Looking forward to it. I am building a 1/48 P-51A and I am going to try either the hair spray or chipping medium method for chipping this time. I'm not real happy with my sponge tech. Also going to use water color pencils.
14. October, 01:19
Guillaume Blanchet
I have yet to try the airspray method. I'll look into it.
16. October, 01:28
Clifford Keesler
You put a layer of hairspray on the areas you want to chip, then paint as normal. Once the paint is dry, you simply take a brush wet the area you want chipped and remove the amount of paint you want chipped. I do not know what color German aircraft were primed in. On the P-51 I will paint it aluminum, then add a layer of zinc chromate to selected areas over that. Then paint the entire aircraft in netural grey and olive drab. Adding a layer of hair spray between the zinc chromate and main colors on the wing leading edges, tail plane leading edges and around the wing roots and panels that are removed often, then chip those areas. Sounds easy, but we will see. LOL.
16. October, 01:52
Guillaume Blanchet
Seem interesting. I once tried scratching the acrylic over a coat of laquer paint with a toothpick. It worked well on edges but created unrealistic scratch at the middle of pannels. As if someone would have ''keyed'' the airplane. I think the airspay metod could have been usefull in this case. I wIll be watching this P-51.
16. October, 02:04
Clifford Keesler
I need to do some work on it. The Tomcat has been taking up to much of my time. Hope to finish it this weekend, finally got some stuff I had been waiting for in the mail this afternoon.

Guillaume Blanchet
Thank for the information Carlos. I have some camouflage green touch-up to do. I'll paint the surface at the safe time.
31. August, 18:58
Carlos Cisneros
You're welcome. I'm looking forward to seeing some markings on this build.
31. August, 22:11
Guillaume Blanchet
All done! I'm a bit disapointed wth my camo. I lost all of my preshading effect after over-applying the colors. Next time, I'll set up in a place with good lighting and will try to postshade instead of preshading. The washes did managed to bring back a bit of constrat so the final result made me happy.

Carlos the surface behind the pilot should have been tan according to the only authentic phto I could find. But I like the green so much I decide to forego historical accuracy for personal taste. Your comment is still much appreciated.
5. September, 16:57
Carlos Cisneros
Understood Guillaume. It's your build, make it as what makes you happy. It looks very nice as you have finished it.
5. September, 18:24
Nathan Dempsey
You brought life to this old kit. Nicely done.
5. September, 18:59
Patrick Hagelstein
Preshading can be challenging if you get too carried away applying paint. Happened to me more than once too... :( Still, I think it looks great! If you have a close look at the plane in the video, that's not that beaten up either and shows stark colors as well.
14. October, 01:34
Guillaume Blanchet
Thank you all for the nice comments.

Patrick you are right. In reality the planes does not get this amount of shading. It's just make for a more dramatic build when we exagerate shadows & the wear & tear. I have since then discovered post shading & like it a lots for touching up the base coat.

Funny enough, in my current build I had to add paint to hide the pre-shading a bit. It's a learning curve.

Looking very nice.
20. June, 15:05
Guillaume Blanchet
I'm getting better with the rivter but it's still a a big chalenge to have nice & clean lines. This time I've experimented with masking tape and long plastic tubes cutted from the sprues to serves as flexible ruler. Masking tape is stable but doesn't provide much guidance & the flexibe tubes are hard to maintain in place. One day...

I did found a verry cool rivets reference illustration on a 3d modeler forum.I have uploaded the picture in the album.
20. June, 15:49

Wow I missed this one. Great finish! Love the wespe markings.

Fabulous finish Guillaume. Definitely a build I'll revisit as I'd like to get to the Iraqi version one day, and there's inspiration here.
27. September, 05:46

The Iraqi version is a nice & original one. Take some picture if you build one.

Watching. The "other" Mosquito of WWII. What black primer did you use?
19. September, 13:25
Guillaume Blanchet
Thank Nathan, appreciated.

Andy, I was a big fan of the original Mosquito and learned recently about the existence it's german copy. I plan to get a model of it next year to put them side side on the shelf.

For the balck primer, I used a Can of Krylon black camouflage. I like it because it's cheap & extra mat.
https://krylon.ca/products/c..sion-for-plastic-technology/
It's also fast to dry. This time tough it stayed sticky a bit longer than usual. Maybe I didn't shake the can enough.

20. September, 00:11
Nathan Dempsey
Oh man that camo came out awesome.
21. September, 00:12
Guillaume Blanchet
Thanks Nathan. It was a learning curve but the fourth pass was the charm. BTW I took inspiration from the antenas on your Do-335 for my build ;)
21. September, 01:38
Nathan Dempsey
Wow thanks Guillaume. That's a nice result on the build. I need to dig my kit out of the stash at some point!

The kit is way more detailed than I expected. I migth not need to use riveting tool at all. Plus it got a detailled engine(2 parts,but still).

Alright! Curious to see what it looks like when built. :)
2. August, 03:31
Guillaume Blanchet
Can someone tell me if you can uses a riveting tool over a lacquer base coat. Will the base coat be too hard for the riveting tool?
1. August, 14:21
Steven Van Dyck
If it is Tamiya TS, the coat will have the tendency to crack and chip rather than to be perforated, I think.
1. August, 21:09
Guillaume Blanchet
Thank for the input. It's a Tamiya LP. I've have read on Tamiya's blog that it take a day to be dry enough to safely use masking tape. I'll apply the riveting in between 12hto 18h after the base coat. This way, it should still be soft for the riveting tool.

Testing testing 1 2 3 testing ! :)
The only way to be sure is to do some testing !! :D
1. August, 22:10
Steven Van Dyck
Here they apply tape after 1 minute: Youtube Video
So you should not expect to have hours before it's solid. But it should be workable with metal tools.

Thank you I'm almost done with it. I really enjoyed upgrading the cockpit, but I discover that CA glue tend to show trougth the primer. I'll apply less the next wime I use metal wire for making hoses.

I should be posting photos of the final soon.
28. July, 12:29
Nathan Dempsey
Did you add the rivet lines or is that the kit molding?
28. July, 20:16
Guillaume Blanchet
I added most them using a rivet tool. It's quite a game changer for me, but it demand a lot of pratice to maintain a staigth line. That or a better technique than mine..

I learned by following this video as a guide (well this channel alone pretty much convinced me to get back at model making.
