  1. Hi all and thanks for the comments and likes A bit more done the wings and tail fins have been fitted and the fuselage glue together. I have dry brushed the whole aircraft to give it a worn look. I have found out that she was hit by flack and number 2 engine caught fire but was put out quite quickly. It was replaced and a new cowl fitted but wasn't painted for a few weeks so I have shown this. Just a little bit more to do then she will be complete. Thanks for following Martyn
  2. Well done Dan it's nice to have some good news for a change Martyn
  3. Hi OC I used to live about 15 miles from West Malling when I was a kid and my uncle worked there during the war as a parachute packer . Small world. Martyn

  5. I think this self isolation has cocked my brain up . I forgot to add the pictures Martyn
  6. Hi all and a big thanks for the likes. A little more work on the old girl. I have painted the square G on the tail and I think it looks ok the biggest problem I had was with the numbers as I tried painting them but they looked rubbish so I came up with a cunning plan and modified the ones that came with the kit and some I had leftover from another kit I think they look ok and much better than I could paint. Cheers for following Martyn
  7. Looking forward to this OC . Stay safe m8 Martyn
  8. Just had a look a a few more pics and I found this. Martyn
  9. Cheers for looking in Popeye . Had a bit of time this afternoon to have a go at the name on the side . I think it looks ok , just one more thing the paintwork looks to new and is there a way of whethering without a airbrush. Any help would be most appreciated. Stay safe all Martyn
  10. Hi Rob from just over the border and welcome to MSW. I live just east of Bury St Edmunds so not to far . Martyn
  11. May I say a big thank you for all the information Egilman and everyone who has looked in . Hears a few pictures. The fuselage and wings where painted with Tamiya USAF olive drab and the underside USAF mid grey . I have built up the cockpit which is very basic. It needed a bit of filing to get it to fit . Next job painting the logo on the side before I start putting it together. cheers for following Martyn

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
