FLYING LEGENDS- Airshow 2012, Duxford

Last weekend I visited the famous Airshow "FLYING LEGENDS" at the ex-RAF-Airfield Duxford, near Cambridge. It was such a great event - I was really impressed by the airplanes, the Show, the Atmosphere..everything was a unique event for me.

Here you find some impressions of my visit. Enjoy the pictures of the flying legends...

















































and finally a funny pic: me and some of "my Bomber-Crew" Members from the B-17 "Flying Fortress" codenamed "Sally B."

Mission PEACEKEEPING - AVGP Cougar, Part 2.0

Hi Folks,

after a long break I was finally able to finish this project. Yeah..



After cleaning the assembling components I startet with a black base coat overall.





next step: adding a green tone as base for the following UN-White. I used simply Tamiya XF-67 NATO Green


The white colour was mixed with XF-2 white & XF-57 buff. Also I added some drops of cler cote.



for the prominent UN-Markings I used stencils instead  decals




further I used the perfect suitable decals from ARCHER


detailshot of the vehicle registration plate:



I didn´t make any pictures from the following weathering steps - sorry. After appling colour, decals etc. the whole kit received filter with self mixed orange tones. Detailwash was made only with dark oils, again oils were used for some streaking effects.

and now, here the result. Maybe this model deserve a little base with some typical Bosnia accesoires.
















It was a nice challenge to built this COUGAR - even if there are some frictions. Maybe some canadian experts can give comments how accurate this model stands.
