here is what the Buccaneer fuselage became, with wings from the spares box, coming from a Twin Otter
(I still have a fuselage to deal with ...  ;D)

You continue to impress me with that most challenging of colors, the Dreaded Yellow.

I can only tip my hat to the outstanding result you achieve! What kind of paint did you use and do you have any additional tips or suggestions?

Well done and a very nice compliment to my Sunday morning coffee!

thanks!

the yellow is humbrol enamel 69 applied with a simple brush : I am not always as lucky as here  ;)
In this particular case the plastic of both Boccanneer and Twin Otter, Revell reboxings of Matchbox, were light grey, which is the best for yellow. A too clear or white background shows brushstrokes, and dark backgrounds look through ...
Maybe the ultimate tip is to have a light grey primer?

Many thanks for sharing your secrets to the Dreaded Yellow, ericr!

Unfortunately, I use acrylics, so I may stay challenged. My own research shows that a light gray primer (model masters) works better than either tan or white. One day I should see how sand (lighter than tan) works. I've taken to pouring off a fair bit of excess carrier which seems to help, but I'm not so sure how this info will translate over into the very different world of Enamels.

Gratefully,
Brian da Basher

I found this cheap Williams Renault and thought something could come out of it :
I improved it by fitting wings from a F-5 (ok, not very long ...)

Should have been a Red Bull F1 rather than a Williams car, 'cause...

Aaaaand, I'll get my coat...

Beautiful Twin Otter Buccaneer!

a Red Bull car would have been nice indeed  ;)

I think this one may be my favorite of yours yet, eric!

A flying fire truck is truly inspired and that's one clean, smooth build!

Agreed!  It really looks of a whole and everything fits together beautifully.

Me, too!  It actually looks like a "practical" flying car. Reminds me of the Ford Pinto with Cessna Sky aster wings and rear engine. The AVE Mizar seen here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/AVE_Mizar

thank you all very much !

It did indeed fit very nicely, and the 1/43 4L was a die-cast with nice details which I was happy to keep, and its red fit very well with my usual Humbrol 019 gloss enamel red  ;)

thanks for the reference to the Ford/Cessna hybrid : I had seen some pictures of it, and it sure is an influence to me
