Hi guys !

In the last months I've been a bit busy finishing two open projects, not naval, the first is a Seafire MK17 and the second is an IDF Sh'ot Kal in 1982 configuration, "Operation peace for Galilee" Lebanon.

Image

To be honest I was in the need to take a bit of rest during the Barham building process, motivation was dropping a bit and so the final quality too, now, when the IDF Sh'ot will be completed, I will be ready to finish my project!

Regards!

Dino

Dino,
I seem to have missed your build entirely. Time to clean my glasses I think!

Yet again, all I can say is I am astounded at the amount of work that is put into, by yourself and others, making these waterline models. I don't seem to be able to reach the standard of detail with a sailing model. Mind you, with the superstructure being removed at times, all the fine detail does, in my case anyway, get broken off.

Another fantastic offering of a R.N. Warship. I doff my hat to you.

Your Barham is looking superb, the painting and weathering is as good as your scratchbuilding work - it really adds to the appearance of the model. (I know the last update was in August, but, like other posters, I seem to have missed it for some reason!)

I like the quad Vickers guns too - I'm going to have to do something similar in 1/400 for my Heller HMS Hood. I don't have any specific PE, but should be able to adapt some gunsights from other AA gun PE sets.

Hi, Dino.
This is a text-book example of outstanding scratchbuilding! Truly amazing. It is inspiring me to kitbash an old Airfix Warspite into Barham.

You've made me greedy for updates!

Again, well done!

Dino,
I must say you did a hell of a job on this one. I love it!

I wanted to ask you some questions about washing WEM paints. Do you spray anything over them before you do your wash? I've tried washes directly on them and it does not produce the desired effect (instead of the wash flowing down, the paint absorbs it in all directions and it does not look right). Would you please tell me how you do your washes?

Thanks.

Dino, you mad! Enourmous, fantastic work! Looks really high class!

Where you took such "greater" amount plastic for fabrication of "super" superstructures and details?

:thumbs_up_1:

Hi, sry for the delay, I was a bit busy building tanks, anyway, I spray the WEM paints thinned with nitro thinner ( you must use an airbrush with teflon rings to do it ) and I wait at least 36 hours before to apply any washing.

When all dry I use artistics oil paints thinned at the desired level.

Dino.

Dino,

I also thinned my WEM paints with nitro (lacquer) thinner. What do you use to thin your washes?

Hi, I use standard artist turpentine for my oil washes.

Ciao

Hello all!

Unfortunately I'm stucked on the small deck fittings... a boring task, so I've built some AFVs, and actually I'm building some Fleet Air Arm stuff in 1/48.

But sometime I find the spirit to go on and I'm progressing with slow little steps .... I'm sorry for that, but I can't waste the previous efforts with a poor final fitting, so I'm taking my time to finish it!

You've got the right idea - take your time and do her right. Looking forward to seeing her finished - She looks great!

In fact, he is doing more than a great job in my oppinion. He is building one of the best models I´ve ever seen in 1/350.

Amazing, simply amazing, Dino. We will wait patiently until you get the drive again.

Cheers.
Pachi.

Has there been any progress on this beauty? I can't wait to see her finished, you have been a real inspiration.

... time to remove some dust in this post! :heh:

... don't ask why, but last week I had a Blackburn Buccaneer almost finished on my bench ... modellers are strange sometimes ...

The mushrooms war begun, this time I'm going to win, I will accept some compromise in order to get the beast finished, but my collection cries for new ships and my expensive WEM Sheffield still waits to receive its late '42 refit!
