Paint started going on last night. The Buchon's basic scheme was identical to that worn for the filming of Piece of Cake a year prior, with only the colours being changed to accurately reflect the time period.

Not looking forward to painting those splodges, though!

I'd try painting the light parts over the darker colour; painting those random shaped 'splodges' at 1/72 would be tricky!

It's coming on nicely so far!

Cheers, iggie.

I did a similar scheme on a '109G for the last Messerschmitt GB a while back. If I remember rightly, I did it dark-on-light.

All free-hand, too! :shock:

Looking good Daren. It has its critics but I think the 109 in all its variations is a pretty looking piece of engineering, and an unbroken milestone in fighter design.

Well, folks, normally I would have this done by now, especially as I've been on holiday since Wednesday, but I've been feeling as rough as a badger's bum for some reason and I've scarcely touched any plastic whatsoever! :sad:

Hopefully I'll be right by Monday so I can carry on.

A fine detail brush and a steady hand should see those blotches sorted. Or cut a series of masks out of TT as the blotches have hard edges so could be relatively easily masked.

Sorry chaps, this has stalled a bit due to work and another modelling commitment - note to self, I am NOT doing two 1/24th models ever again!!

However, I'll be back at it ASAP.

The Buchon has had an attack of splodge pox!

Nice one Daren, that splodgy Memphis Belle scheme is tricky in this scale. The Buchon is not a bad looking fighter in actual fact.

Thanks, Shaun.

I'll get the Buchon finished by next week.

With the prop and canopy now on, it's surely got to be time for the decals?!
