lilspikey on Airfix 1:72 de Havilland Mosquito (XVIII) - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Build was varied. Some bits fit together nicely, but the wheel covers/hatches were quite a pain. Think the kit was designed with having undercarriage down. I should have spent bit more time filling in gap between fuselage halves. Beyond that transfers were ok (only a few of them and avoided silvering this time). Though didn't like the fact that the RAF roundels had seperate red centers - managed to put one in ever so slightly off center!" - John Montgomery

"I think it's an older kit/design as the kit wasn't in one of the newer style red airfix boxes and had this art on it: http://www.airfix.com/shop... Obviously with crew painted too: http://www.flickr.com/photos... (though you can barely see them through canopy)." - John Montgomery

lilspikey on FW190 Airfix - relatively happy with camo pattern, given I didn't have a working airbrush. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"That was exactly the trick. I started with the light blue, watered it down a bit, then added bits of the darker grey and/or green, painted then added more of the darker colours to build up the effect. I also did very watered down washes over the dots with the previous lighter shades too, which helped soften the contrast. For the straight edges I used low-tack masking tape (the Tamiya stuff that's yellow). It works pretty well, though sometimes bits of paint would bleed through underneath it." - John Montgomery

"Well I was glad I'd received two kits for Christmas, as I messed up one of the decals/transfers. Was good to have a spare. Also reaffirmed my preference for acrylic paints, so much easier to mix and apply in thin layers to build up gradual changes/blending etc. The years of painting w40k miniatures paid off! Should also point out that apart from a bit of "flesh" tone for the pilot and water colours/inks for weathering I just used the paints that came with the kit - one of those "starter" kits that airfix do that come with four tiny paints, a brush and polystyrene cement." - John Montgomery

"It doesn't look so bad from other directions. I actually did use a bit of thinner on it to try and dissolve the plastic, but clearly didn't use quite enough." - John Montgomery
