    These Thunderbolts look great.

     

    Here some planes I finished recently

    A6M2 Zeros of the Tainan Kokutai. The V-103 is in the colours of the famous japanese IJN-ace Saburo Sakai.

    Fiat CR.32 of the Grupo 2-G-3 duringthe Spanish Civil War. Nationalistic forces. 3-51 is the plane of the spanish Ace Commandante Joaquin Garcia Morato.

    Heinkel He-51 of Legion Condor during the Spanish Civil War
    He51 Legion Condor

    Heinkel He-112 in nationalist-spanish-colours. I know only 2 kills done by spanish He-112: They were delivered after the republican air force was already destroyed so there was only one kill of a He-112 during the Civil War. Later during WW2 a spanish He-112 operating from the spanish colony in North Africa shot down a US-P-38.

    Ki-43 I of the IJA, 1st Sentai

    Ki-61 Ib of the IJA, 78th Sentai

    Hi there,

    New on the forum but a big fan of BRS, I thought I’d share some pictures of my little planes.

    Starting with Mustangs. I love the way it is possible to change the colour scheme of Mustangs while keeping some uniformity :

    Hi,

    I thought I’d share somes photos with you.

    Starting with Mustangs, quite a lot of them. I love the way it is possible to vary colours on Mustangs while retaining uniformity :

    Let me know what you think !

    I have this on one of the stands I built for BRS in 1/72 but don’t plan to do a whole squadron of them.   There’s a little more about it on my blog: https://paintingdistractions.wordpress.com/2020/04/15/ground-support/

    Well, I took the plunge and picked up a resin printer. Some Lightnings.

    Those look great – what paint did you use for the aluminium – mine always seems to go dull?

    Nice one indeed.

    I don’t know what Steve’s used but I’m pretty happy with the Vallejo metal paint from the Air range.

    I used Chrome Metallic 71064 for my Mustangs.

    Here my A5M4 Claude from PlanePrinter 1/200 in the colours of the aircraft carrier Soryu during the war against China in 1939.

    The accurate decals are from miscmini.com. I needed full 4 hours to put the decals on the planes 🙂

    I painted them with Valleyo-silver and simply painted over the shining silver then Citadel Nuln Oil. The result is a dull aluminium.

    EDIT: I also attached a picture with the early version of the G3M1 (with barrel shaped turrets).

    I used Krylon covermax metallic aluminum. It was a pain to work with, the acrylic paint kept beading up and I had to put several thin coats on. I used Vallejo and MiG metallics on on these, and I’ll be going back to them.
