Airfix 1/48 Spitfire XIVc and Eduard 1/48 Fw190s

Not much to report really except the Spitfire is nearing completion as the propellor has been painted and decalled, a dark brown wash applied to the flying surfaces and engine cowling plus Paynes Grey oil paint brushed into the panel lines with the excess wiped away;

The model will then get sprayed with VMS semi-matt varnish and when dry the final weathering can be done and the last bits stuck on.

The two Fw190s were sprayed with Mr Hobby Aqueous RLM76 with RLM 75 sprayed along the panel lines before lightly re-spraying with the base coat;

The scheme for the Fw190D-9 that I had chosen required bare metal wings on the underside along with RLM83 green on the front so the wing was masked off and the green section sprayed. This was then masked and Tamiya AS-12 decanted from the rattle can and sprayed using an airbrush, remembering to mask the ailerons first as these were painted with RLM76;

Both Fw190s are now ready for the upper surface colours which I will try to do on my next days off.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
