I've uploaded 105 pics from the Pittsburgh contest yesterday at this link:
1/32 Hasegawa Focke-Wulf FW-190A-8 built OOB, except for an Eduard PE seat harness.
AK Interactive acrylic paints, except for the RLM 74-it was a bit light, so I used Gunze-Sangyo.
The base is from Zoukie-Mura.
Weathered with oils.
I really man[...]
Finished this one up this a.m. Painted with Tamiya acrylics, as well.Excuse the spurious smoke rings, I claim artistic license and fun.
Some things I added were:
PE seat harness.
Drilled out the cowling guns.
Replaced wing cannons with blunt-t[...]
Revell 1/25 Pontiac '69 GTO, built OOB.

The last of the great biplane fighters to enter service in 1938, the Fiat CR.42 “Falco” (Falcon) became the single most-produced Italian fighter. Agile, light, and regarded by Regia Aeronautica pilots as a wonderful aircraft to fly, the Falco w[...]
I built this kit a little over two years ago. Most likely the most sublime Hasegawa model kit I've built to date. The only additions were a PE seat harness from Eduard and some colored wires added to the radio. The antennae wire is stretched sp[...]
It's finished, at last. :)
I started this project in August 2013. I finished it up yesterday.
There's really nothing I can say that hasn't already been said...it's the best kit I've ever built. It's built out of the box, with the exceptions of[...]
