Aircraft Modeling / Renard 31 (FRROM 1/72)
« on: August 19, 2018, 03:16:14 PM »
The Renard 31 was the only aircraft 100% Belgian made that participated in combat to all the 18 days campaign of 1940.
Frrom just released the kit. Short run but at first sight, a nice one!

Aircraft Modeling / Dornier 27 (Special Hobby 1/72)
« on: August 19, 2018, 03:13:42 PM »
Time to prepare the next builds as I've finished the Rafale M and I'm finishing the "cute" Corsair...
This is the Dornier 27 from Special Hobby at 1/72 scale.
Nice kit; hope the build will be fun...
Of course, I will build the Belgian version  :))

I falled in love with the production of "El Viejo Dragon" from Spain. Those figures are very well sculpted and... sexy!
As for "l'emmerdeuse" I will try to paint the figures with oil paints; but first a coat of acrylic is better. I airbrushed Tamiya XF-15 Flesh on all the figures and have begun to paint details with other acrylic paints (Vallejo, Citadel Colors...)

Miscellaneous Subjects / L'emmerdeuse

I will not translate the title  :))
...Let say: the boring woman

I will try to paint that figure with oil paints.

Miscellaneous Subjects / Two horse

Well, back to "my harras"!

A friend from the theatre group asked me to paint a horse for her granddaughter.
...And on a garage sale, I found a nice horse heat that I will paint for the birthday of another friend.

Work in progress: base color applied and Maskol used to protect the white parts of the bodies...

Miscellaneous Subjects / St Therese of Lisieux

A friend of mine who is catholic ordered for a little figure of St Thérèse of Lisieux to an Italian shop. She was thinking that the figure was painted but she received this one... (Nicely sculpted in wood)

Time to come back...

...And back with a new "cute" Corsair from Tiger Models, with the cockpit detail set from Retrowings

Aircraft Modeling / Messerschmitt Me 209 V1 (Special Hobby 1/72)
« on: February 05, 2018, 03:48:30 PM »
I've bought that kit two days ago, during the expo of "les Fêlés du modélisme" at Roselies (Belgium).
It's a short run but of excellent quality.
Work started by a wash of all the parts and the canopy put in a bath of Klir.
Then I removed all the unneeded parts from the sprue and prepaired the ones that will be used.
Exhausts are glued on the half fuselages; a hole is made in the engine cover to permit the placement of the propellers support; the parts that will receive the wheel legs are also glued and I've also put some elements in Evergreen to obtain a good alignment when I will glue the half fuselages together...

Aircraft Modeling / Kfir C2 (kit AMK au 1/72)
« on: January 13, 2018, 03:11:57 PM »
OK, new project. I have to build this one for "KIT", the IPMS-Belgium magazine.

Kit looks very nice.

The most important thing is that you have to choose the deco you want to build before to begin (holes must be done differently into the wings for a C2 than a C7) and also the load charges to use...

Here I've begun the work. I will build an Equatorian Kfir C2...

Miscellaneous Subjects / A new horse: Sunny

Aircraft Modeling / I'm an Ace now...
« on: October 16, 2017, 08:56:10 AM »
At the IPMS Belgium national convention "Plastic and Steel", october 14-15 2017, I won the IPMS Belgium Challenge with my little Brewster Buffalo.
It's the 5th time I won that challenge; I'm the first to have won it more than 2 times... So; 5 times I'm the first Ipms Belgium Challenge ace  :))

Miscellaneous Subjects / Unicorn
« on: September 09, 2017, 11:01:51 AM »
A friend of mine asked me to paint a unicorn for her...

As I have a lot of horse figures at home, I choosed one but had to replace the mane by a home-made one (with Magic Sculpt) and the tail by the one of another horse figure. The corn was also made in Magic Sculpt.

After that, white as base and use of acrylic paints + True Metal Gold...

Aircraft Modeling / Spitfire XIV (Fujimi 1/72)
« on: September 04, 2017, 09:08:34 AM »
A new project that I'm starting: the Fulimi 1/72 Spitfire XIV "Belgian escadrille".
I will use Syhart decals to build a camoflaged aircraft of the 350 Sqn

Aircraft Modeling / Bordurian Messerschmitt Bf 109
« on: August 26, 2017, 08:55:40 PM »
Once again, great work made by Dominique Jadoul that created a conversion set for a Bordurian Bf 109.
...Where is Borduria? Well, read Tin Tin  :-green
Neighbourg country and enemy of Syldavia...

The conversion set was designed to fit with any Bf 109F from AZ Models.
If you read Tin Tin, you will see some difference between the actual Bf 109F and the Bordurian one: a fixed tail wheel, lack of underwings radiators; front fuselage similar to the one of a Bf 109B; three-bladed prop with a gun outlet in his centre and exhausts stack with only 5 pipes.

The Bf 109F kit from AZ is very nice like all their Bf 109 serie. Here are all the parts of the kit and of course those of the conversion set
