Hi all,

after a few years rebuilding my home and building models away from the internet, I missed this forum and the brilliant ideas spawned here, so I returned... nice to see you all again!  <_<

First piece from the shadow period:

Model: F-84G PLAAF
Brand: Academy 1/72 + eduard photoetch
Decals: trumpetter

Comments welcome, stay tuned fro more!

Cheers from Brussels



Nice, I like how the cammo wraps around the leading edges.  :thumbsup:


Welcome back.

Thats one heck of a masking job.  Well done, nice build.


- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

hi Ericr

it's a mixed inspiration from German planes and Gekko Graphics F104

Wow, that's different - looks good!

Absolutely gorgeous!!  Amazing paintwork.   :wub: :wub:  (maybe a typo in the thread title though...  ;) )

thx, but you got me wondering about the typo :p


I finished my first model this year, so got you some pictures. Once again I didn't managed to reproduce the painting option from the box...

Model: P-35 Spanish Civil war Condor legion
Brand: Academy 1/48 + eduard photoetch
Decals: print scale

Cockpit is enhanced with photoetch

some paneling for the underside

and preshading for the uperside

MRP paints (a first), amazing paints!!!

and after the plane fell 3 times, the cockpit had to be broken open twice to remove glue fumes on the canopy and a few lost pieces had to be replaced in scracht... tadaaaaaaaaaa

comments welcome, glad I'm done with this one, realy didn't go as expected

later all!


I've always had a liking for the P.35 but that is simply stupendous  :bow:

Love the camouflage
