Hi GG, Im not that fast. I started the build a couple of months ago but didn't think I would get it done in time so didn't post it up on the site. Then I found I had more time to spend on it and decided to post it anyway. I've just posted bits at a time to spread it out and not put it all up at once. I have just about finished the Spit but still have the figures and car to do yet. As far as the camouflage pattern goes I have left it as it is to see how it comes out after weathering and so on. After all it was an experiment doing it that way and I want to see it through to the end. More soon.

Hi Guys,

After a couple of coats of Klear I started the decals.





Here is a shot of some of the figures and equipment I'm going to use but more on that another time, it will make more sense then.



The decals are all done I am going to score them along all the panel lines I can and give them another couple of coats of Sol, you should see a better result after weathering.





Here are a couple of pictures of the wing tip lights after they have been painted so you can see how they came out.





Done some weathering and a flat coat, just one or two things to do and she is there.







Here is a pic of her nearly finished to wet your apatite but you will have to wait for the final reveal to see more.



Figures and car coming next so Stay Tooned. [thumb]

It is the fact that someone "experimented" with products and techniques that we all stand in the modeling hobby. Thanks for the comment about my build but it has lots of rough areas. My first build in 40+ years. Your build is looking truly excellent.

Thank you my friend. Mine has many floors to, but the real craft in this hobby is to disguise them properly.

Hi,

I started the figures with a primer coat of the main colour of the uniform. Here as you can see it's blue and gray.



This is a picture of the main parts of the equipment that's going to be used.



One thing I am very disappointed in is the different sizes of figures that should all be 1/48 scale. The one on the far right is the driver of the car and made by Tamiya, the two held by the clamps are Revell and the gray's are from Eduard. As you can see they are all different sizes.



I can maybe do some kind of perspective thing on some angles of the final reveal.

As ever, Stay Tooned. [thumb]

Hello again,

Here is a picture of a couple of completed chaps. After priming with the uniform colour I just touched in with the relevant colour to fill in the details. When they were dry I put a dark wash on parts that were in shadow and touched in buttons with brass metalizer  on the end of a cocktail stick. As for the faces, I did a very light wash all over and then while it was still wet I wiped it off the parts I wanted to be lighter with a wet cotton bud such as the brow, cheeks, nose and chin. That's all there is to it, you see on the web people putting many different coats and shades on, which is fine but all you need to do for speed is the flesh colour, wash and then dab it off in the right places.



Here is the Motley Crew just about finished. I'm very sorry for the heads on sticks but I won't put them on until final assembly to get placement right ( same for the drivers arms). The pilot at the back is to go into the car but I don't know if he will fit because of the size of him so I will finish him if he dose when the car to built.







Hope to get the car done this weekend.

As ever, Stay Tooned. [thumb]

Hi Guys,

I started on the car yesterday. It's quite a straight forward build. Here is a couple a pictures of the start.





I primed it with Vallejo Grey Primer. It is very good for car bodies because of it's self leveling properties.





After it dried overnight Saturday I painted it XF-18 Medium Blue. Then I assembled the interior of the car, the seats are XF-49 and did a little bit of weathering to the car body.




I still have some details to add, a Klear coat, decals and some final weathering but not far off now.

As ever, Stay Tooned. [thumb]

That is some really nice work. Including figures next to aircraft seems to animate the scene. I have a feeling yours will ooze atmosphereand I can't wait to see it finished - keep it up

Nev,

This build and all the different elements is getting more and more exciting as you post pictures [for which we are very grateful]. Can't wait to see the finished product,
but I suppose we WILL WAIT as we have no other choice!

Hi There,

I have added the decals (All five of them) and then a final bit of weathering and here is the result.







Now it's time to put all those finishing touches on everything and put it all together. I'm not going to rush it, we have a week and the final reveal pictures will be up in plenty of time so Stay Tooned. [thumb]
