Any chance of seeing the Terminator? I have one in the stash to build one day :)



I'll take some pictures in the morning. AKAN has a nice set of paints for the Terminator. It is #46340 <<Terminator>> (BMPT)- splintered camouflage, the modern Russian armored vehicles since 2013. I use the acrylic lacquers but AKAN has the paints in straight acrylic. AKAN is probably the best paint available for Soviet/Russian subjects.

Basic paint job finished and now on to the touch-up.

The aircraft was "STILL" a tail sitter. I had to add weight in to the wing leading edges to get it to bairly sitting on it's nose.

The silver looks great and very even.
Thanks for the Terminator picture, that looks a cracking build and very good in the camouflage.

Thanks, I will be putting decals on today. If you have a fair number of Soviet/Russian air and armor subjects, you might want to consider AKAN acrylic paints.

They are well worth the money and I believe the regular acrylics have no problems with being shipped. :)

Ladies and Gentlemen, I now present my second completed entry to the "Bombing Aircraft" group build:

EE Canberra B.6, WH948, 101 Squadron RAF on detachment to Butterworth, Malaya for 'Operation Mileage', against the MRLA, February, 1955.

And yes, I was able to get it to sit on it's nose wheel after filling every empty space forward of the main landing gear (including wing leading edges) with lead shot. It was one tail heavy model.

Brilliant (literally!) finish Chuck! For such an old kit, you've got the best out of it for certain :grin:

Cracking job :-D :-D
