Hi folks,

After my recent Tempest build, I decided to set myself a target as to how fast I could build a model. I chose the Tamiya FW190 as an easy build, and set to work. Suffice it to say that by the same time the next evening I'd got the thing assembled, painted, Kleared and ready to decal. It was at that point that I realised half the kit decals were missing... so much for the record.

As luck would have it, my good friend Karl came to the rescue the next day with a selection of decals, and I was on the way again. I didn't get the record I should have, but it's still my fastest ever 'serious' build, taking only 17 hours work to complete. I'm quite pleased that all the painting was done freehand with the airbrush - the only masking on the whole thing was for the yellow rudder and nose.

I did it OOB, with many glaring errors which I'm not at all bothered about. It was meant to be a fun build, and so it turned out to be.

So for the second time in a week (!) here's the RFI:

Then some flyaround shots:

And a couple of closer shots:

Is it me, or does my recently finished Tempest make the Butcher Bird look dainty by comparison?

Hope you like it,

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.

To post a link or an image, simply type in the URL (web address) of the destination page or image. The URL will appear as a link (for an HTML link) or an image (if you link direct to a .jpg file) when posted. You can use the Preview facility to see how your message looks before posting to Plastic Pix.

Please try to keep image sizes to 800 pixels wide or less, as larger sizes will be too big to fit on many computer screens. Also, file sizes should be kept to around 100kb or less, otherwise download may be very slow.
