Note the lack of any white edges around the cowl, prop and wheels :wink:.

Excellent work on the Zero, a very fine-looking model. And congratulations on your F-86 being chosen for the POTW honor.

Thanks for the kind words folks :D. As a beginner I really appreciate all the positive feedback from you more experienced card modellers, and to get the POTW too was a real (nice) shock!

Edi, the Zero is the 'regular' version. WWII, if you're gonna build this be warned that the fairings, where they join the fuselage and wing trailing edge, are a pain in the a***, as is the bottom of the wing where it meets the fuselage rear. I had real trouble getting these to meet properly, but somehow managed to bodge it all together. I wasn't really happy with it or the model at that stage but carried on anyway. In the end, though, I found that the overall effect was actually quite pleasing :).

The question is what do I build next?!

And the answer is this, the Stinson V-77 Reliant...

Not one of my better efforts, especially where the wheels are concerned (note to self - I really must learn how to do them properly) so please be gentle with me! lol

I started this one last weekend and just finished it today. I originally began building the stock 1/25 scale version, but it was too big for me and I wasn't really very happy with it anyway so I binned it and started on this instead. I reduced the original by the WSAM figure of 42%, so this should be 1/60 scale, but it looks awfully small to me - the wingspan is just 6 inches! This was about as fiddly as I want to get so I think it's unlikely I'll be building anything so small again :shock:. At least I was able to get all four sheets on one piece of card, though!

All the exposed white edges have been covered up. I'm still experimenting to find out the best way to do this, and here I used some Humbrol enamel paints that I already had. The engine exhausts are tiny pieces of brown insulation from some thin gauge stranded wire I 'acquired' from work :wink:.
