Thanks guys, iv cured my lack of mono by working on one of the new airfix 1/72 hurricanes, it's a lovely kit to work with and is primed and ready to get its fighting colours. So while waiting for parts to dry I set to work on the Liberator, I'm hoping to have a proper broadband connection tomorrow, so fingers crossed that I can get pictures uploaded.

The kit is horrible, yes it has lovely PE but the fit issues are becoming endless but that's what filler is for...lol.
I'm starting to enjoy it again and one of my friends from my club the Irish model soldier society has informed me that I have to have it finished for our show on the 9th and 10th of May along with my Italeri Sunderland which ain't even started, so it looks like in gonna be a busy boy.

Thanks again
Eoin

Eoin, I've always had numberous projects on the go at the sametime. They say, and quite rightly, that a change is as good as a rest.

If one project has waned a little then move to another that will spark the motivation afresh. As an example, after painting minute parts of the 1/72 kits I put down my minute brushes, picked up a much larger one .... and painted the bathroom. [crazy]

It worked for me.

Hello all, thanks again for the nice comments. I finally have a broadband sorted in the house so I can start to upload proper up to date photos[biggrin]

So first up is to back track a little, I want this aircraft to look like a well used war bird so I set to work with dry brushing the interior and then used Citadel nurn oil for a wash








As I mentioned before there is a miss mould at the the bomb bay framing where there is a gap that needed some attention so I squared it of and glued a small strip of styrene into it 



Iv also fitted the clear part along the fuselage which where a dreadful fit and about as clear as smoked glass so after I fit them I put a drop of Zap-a-gap over the outside of them so I can sand and polish the flat with the fuselage


The piece at the front will need a lot of attention to get right


The join where the nose joins the fuselage wasn't 100% on one side so I used some styrene melted in liquid cement to fill it so it will be easier to re-scribe later



I got to work on the wheel wells and painted them last night, they still need to be dry brushed and receive a wash
 


Now here is a good one, the side wall of the nose wheel tire has a bloody hole in it so I filled it with some melted styrene



And here is what else is on the bench


So thats it for now, I should have more up soon, im taking a day off from the bench but should get more done tomorrow.

Thanks for looking,
Eoin

Thanks for the nice comments men, I ended up doing a bit of work last night even though I was meant to be having an early night.

I gave the wheel wells a quick dry brush with citadel's necron compound which is there silver dry paint, then I used their nurn oil wash


when that was done I glued up the wings and then got on with the nightmare task of bringing the fuselage halves together. I worked across the upper surface first, I used tamiya extra thin and then just to hold it together I went over the join with zap-a-gap


The underside didn't seam to want to meet up but with some bruth force and the same method as the top I got it together


And now its starting to look like a liberator


All the seams need to be cleaned up and I'm gonna have to do a lot of rescribing, some of the panel lines don't meet up when the fuselage haves join up and a lot of the are very shallow plus I've a lot of sanding to do so the lines are gonna be obliterated.

I might get some work done tomorrow but I've a few thing to do over the weekend so I may not get an up date up till next week.

Thanks for looking,

Eoin

Hi Eoin,

Nice work on those seams using melted sprue mate !
It can be a mojo killer having to fix problems like this on a kit, but you are doing a great job buddy and it's beginning to come together now.

Pete
