It's spam, John; I've reported it to the boss.

Propeller almost finished, i have to seal it with satin varnish. I went easy with the weathering on that following Edgar's advice. I also tried to tone down the color of the chipping. Edgar, I hope i didn't overdo it.







Thanks for looking

Good evening guys, after a long time i return with the first episode of the ''Merlin 66 engine'' series. Hope you like it so far, of course i have a long way ahead with the engine but i think that the first step has been done.

Any more progress John? I am missing your updates!  Smiley

A beautiful Merlin and you have done a good job on bringing an all-black engine to life!

Best regards

Good evening, a small progress regarding the engine compartment, evrything has been painted, washed and dry brushed with titanium white oil..





















After that i did the plumping on the firewall and i assembled it with the frames. I also have to assemble the engine and do the final plumbing and wiring on it.















Hope you like it,

Painting on that plumbing is really first-class! You obviously have other talents apart from just being a SLUF-driver  Grin

Best regards

Guys good morning, finally after almost a month's time i have finished the engine, a model itself. Lets hope that everything will fit, at least with minor corrections. A test dry fit revealed that there is going to be some but i will face it when the time comes. Next ''episode''...painting.

Here without the frames in order to see the details:

It's difficult to tell in some photos but it looks as if most Rolls-Royce built ( as opposed to Packard ) Merlins had the plaque on the rocker covers, but the lettering wasn't always picked out. Just to confuse the issue, I've seen a photo of a Merlin III in an early ( two blade prop ) Mk. 1 with plain rocker covers!

Good evening, after a long time i would like to present you a little update. I have painted the two greys and the invasion stripes. These ones took me some time, a lot of masking and masking.... Well now the green is on the row.
Here i have already painted the two greys and the basic white







Afterwards the masking started...





And here you can see the final outcome













As you may noticed i left unpainted, with the black, the place where the roundel is going to be painted. Thats all for now, hope you like it, until the next update, i wish you Happy Easter.

A small update with the Dark Green applied. I think, generally speaking, that it is one of the most beautiful profiles on a spitfire.











Thanks for looking,
