    Couple more of mine - sorry about the dust!

    Revell/Dragon/Trimaster 1/48th FW190a-8, with an unusual Mediterranean scheme; some may have worn it in Italy, I have heard, and as it's pretty, that is enough for me!

    Hobbycraft 1/48th Bf109g-6, Hungarian A.F. seen from the business end.

    Revell 1/72nd Me262b nightfighter

    Matchbox 1/72nd Hawker Fury, unfortunately discoloured by the flash!

    I love those german birds! I had never seen a trop. camo'ed 190A8; it suits very well, but strange it doesn't have dust filters on sides of engine like 190Fs Gs...
    It's been a long time since I wanted to see a Hungarian 109G, and this one has a very realistic camo and weathering. Beautiful job.

    Yes I like the weathering, especially on the props.

    Lots of fun doing the weathering, too! I overspray the basic paintwork with several toned down coats - with whites, greys, yellows, etc, depending on the effect I wanted, and then do the lining and engraving. I also use model tank techniques, which involve using thinned down black/dark grey-brown paint to "draw" round raised areas or areas which are shadowed. Then dry-brushing with the same selection, more or less, of lightened basic colours, and finally, scuffing by simply painting it on in the right sort of places with a very fine brush; Vince's method of using an aluminium undercoat is valid - especially for, say, Japanese planes - but I prefer my way! If you use bright silver, it doesn't look right, so I usually tone it down with some pale grey, again depending on the degree of wear it gets...

    It sounds complex, but it really is not - if you have that airbrush (!) and a bit of time!

    Beautiful job!
    I like this Focke-Wulf. Is it a R2 wersion? The barells in the wings roots are very short, and looks like MK 108 barells.

    Good attention on details net sailor; yes it looks like MK108s as outer wing cannons; short barrels, small rectangle rounded blister on top of wings. So, it would be an A8/R2 in desert camo but without dust filters. D'you have photo evidence of such a nice plane, ndicki?

    Absolutely not! Stop being boring!

    I just enjoy sometimes messing around a bit, and I wouldn't dream of letting historical accuracy always get in the way! Actually, most of my aircraft are accurate, but now and again, I just want to do something a little more...imaginative! Go back to the first post - I have seen the odd profile of this scheme. Some suggest - and that's about the best I can do - it was used in Italy.

    JG2 flew a-4s in Tunisia, but that's the nearest I can find.

    Tamiya's f-8 is offered up in similar cam, too.

    I like to make mine as accurate as possible but sometimes I dont mind going out there a bit, just to make a beautiful model. Besides the average person does not know the difference anyhow.
