  1. I've always liked the Marauder, and built that kit back in the 80's. As I recall, the cowlings were the toughest work, and the fit overall was not one of Monogram's better efforts. Still, the provided detail is very good even by today's standards and the overall shape looks great. I've seen some really nice models built form that kit with some elbow grease and old-school skills. I look forward to seeing your progress!

    Thanks Gil

    Your right the nacelles are brutal. But thats what we have Modeling skills for ,Right?

    Will post updates during Holiday Break


  2. Thanks, Dick, Mark and Bill.


    Mark, you'd like this kit...simplistic, but it has better surface detail than you'd think. I added some IP & side console decals from the spares box, just so the cockpit wouldn't be so bare.


    Bill...that is NICE!! Hartmann's ride, from the numbers. Beautiful work!


    Correct on Hartmann. Fun little kit

    A couple of weeks on the bench and a little Alclad

  6. OK, who are you, what did you do with Bill, and what happened to that AZ Hurricane? That model looks much too nice to have come from that lump of short-run plastic shown earlier! :smiley2:


    GREAT work! :smiley20:

    A little Glue,Lots of sanding sticks and some magic pixie dust(future) and presto. I never want to hear anybody say, just a simple swipe with a sanding stick.


    Blenheim moving along..need more sanding sticks


    Thanks again

    Very nice job. I am considering starting one in the future. I'd love to hear more aobut what you experienced with the AZ Hurricane.

    Thanks David

    I will say it was challenging,but not hopeless. Just shaking out some basic model skills





  8. Nice

    Just checking.

    I,m afraid personal issues will keep me from Phoenix and the show. SOOOO more effort for Battle of Britain. :smiley19::smiley19:


    Spitfire needs some decent wing walk decals. in mail.


    Polish Hurricane and Blenheim are in the bullpen. :smiley13:

  9. Thanks Gil

    The oversprayed wing markings are called for on the reference sheet for the 109 from JG51 based in France in August 1940. The reference for this aircraft called for the subdoing of the wing markings with RLM O2. these instructions came from the excellent decal sheet on Battle of Britain from Southern Expo model club in England. They are fantastic decals and great instructions. I posted the 109 profiles earlier.


    The little cone like insulators were constructed based on a technique explained to me by Barry Numerick. Take a thick piece of Plastic and a small needle, heat the needle and slowly push it through. The needle cools as it goes through the plastica but retains enough heat to form a small cone on the opposite side. Slice off with a straight razor and the hole is already throgh the cone from the needle. I practiced on about 15 to get 2 good ones. :smiley20:
