Here are the pics,both models are painted with a hairy stick and Humbrol acrylics and Velljo varnish were used.The canopies are done with a black Sharpie because I only have a limited amount of time(since my wife's worsening condition) and masking takes up a lot of said time.

Terrific work, Celt. The Vengeance camo looks fantastic.
Hope your wife gets better soon.

Good to see you building again. The Corsair looks pretty sharp.

The vengeance is nicely built too. God, what a weird and wonderful looking craft.

Your paint finishes are starting to look really smooth. Your technique is really evolving.

Very sorry to hear about your wife.

Great work on both Celt, the matt finish on the Corsair seems to suck light into it it's so flat! Excellent!

I like the pair of them, Celt, they are both very well finished and it's good to see you back building. Very sorry to hear of your wife's worsening condition.

What a lovely pair of models Celt: two old birds but that is not at all apparent from the photos. Excellent finish too especially with the hairy stick. I find that if you water acryllics down until they have the consistency of milk and then apply several coats, a very even a smooth finish can be relatively easily achieved.

Hi Lone Modeller,I place a couple of ball bearings in the pot together with a drop of flow enhancer and give them a good shake and they seem to work fine.

Here is my latest stab at gluing and painting bits of plastic.All paint is daubed on with a hairy stick.The canopy is done by sharpie not the right colour but no time to mask.

That looks very neat and tidy, and the canopy frames work really well

Super stuff, those Frog kits turn into perfectly acceptable renditions of, sometimes, quite unusual aircraft.

Nice to see somebody enjoying these old kits the way they were meant to be. Great work on all of them Celt. 8-)
