Manufacturer:  Tamiya.

Scale:  1/48.

Subject:  Fieseler Fi103 V1.

Paints used:  Vallejo, Tamiya, Mr Metal.

Weathering products:  Minimal, just a Mig Ammo pin wash.

Build thread:  http://genessis-models.websitetoolbox.com/post/tamiya-148-fieseler-fi103-v1-10368785?pid=1310196312

 

Another very simple build, with even fewer parts than the previous Ohka.  Fit, as expected of Tamiya, was perfect, with only a hint of filler needed.  Greatly enjoyed this turkey shoot build.

Too small for a mirror tile each, they can share one!

Congratulations on finishing both builds in such a short space of time both look great together in your cabinet [cool]

By the way I like the name plates by your models, how do you make those?

Geoff.

Thanks, Geoff.  Well, firstly I have a folder on my laptop for all the manufacturers logos.  Easy enough, just go on Google images and search for the company logo you're after.  So far I have 61 logos, and that's just the companies i currently have kits in my stash from, everything from Airfix to Zvezda!

I use parcel labels, to make the actual text, in this case from Staples, as was, now Office Supplies, but you can probably get them from any stationary store.

You can download a template from their website, this makes things easier to lay out.

Once I have the label sheet printed off, I measure from the outer edge of the logo 10 mm, allowing 5 mm to the edge of the label itself, then another 5 mm to the edge of the actual nameplate.  So, whatever the size of the total measurement, the text, plus the 10 mm from both sides and in both dimensions, I cut a piece from a sheet of plastic card.

I always paint the nameplate to match whatever the camo scheme is for the model itself.  In this case I'm using the one from my P-40 Tomahawk, and the RAF desert scheme.  Don't forget to match the reverse side with whatever the underside is painted.

And that's it, really.  I just felt I needed to make these ready for when I open my display cabinet to the Great British public!

Really nice entry. Something of the beaten track I guess!
