    I mainly done WW1 stuff growing up.. (only 24yrs old).

    But what really sucks is I dont have a airbrush so I am having to brush it all :(


    But I think it's gona come out ok tho in the end... nothing really much to this kit!


    If i get time Ill try to get some of my WW1 pics up.....nothing exciting tho!

    Here is my collection to date of what I have......I have built several other planes in my time but with moving from home and in and out of New Orleans during and after katrina this is what I have left that is built but not really all finished.....I built that 1/144 Spitefire when I was b/w the ages of 6-8... pretty much first model..and the Bristol F2B that tried to take-off from the shelf on it's own!

    Most of my models consist of being scales varying from 1/48-1/72 with a few 1/28 and 1/32 here and there stored away.......

    I am pretty much getting right back into modeling.......Hard to acheive great results with jsut a brush but it is quite satisfying when finished!!

    One day I will be able to afford a simple airbrush and then I wont really have no worries cept messy cleanup :p

    I have several balsa kits around that I started and of course never finished...Still young!

    Also those BONES you see is from a Sterling Peanut Scale Fokker D8 I started but yet to finish. Thanks Katrina LOL

    I'd Like to think I've done a great job in my WW1 stuff but when I look at some of the amazing work done by a few peeps over at theaerodrome.com with photoetch parts and a airbrush and then I turn and look a tmy models.... I jsut want to cry LOL.

    Thats one thing I been curious on how to work with.....Photoetch.........When done right it is amazing!

    Well is what I got done before I went to bed...

    Managed to paint the underside. Used Model Masters Enamel French Light Blue Gray..... Only color I was happy with.......I have loads of bottles of that crappy testors Lt gull gray and dark ghost gray or whatever one it is and it sucks.....Goes on way to thin and watery even have mixing with a stick...Had to brush on bout 3 coats of the French Light Blue Gray to be satisfied with a few mess-ups....... and my putty job on hte underside wasnt top notch but It will work for me :)
