About Jean-Luc Formery (TedMamere)

I'm mainly interested in WW2 aircraft and I build them in 1/48 scale.


Very nice Jean-Luc. Did you use Tamiya tape for the stripes? Love the look of the Typhoon, great job, Wingman out.

Hi Wingman! Yes, I used Tamiya masking tape for the stripes. They worked just fine and I had some just the right size! I first sprayed the White an then the black color. A coat of Future was added and weathering was done with pastels... Of course these are not invasion stripes. Thatīs why the black strips a smaller than the white ones. Jean-Luc

I'm with you GrumpyOldMan - I think it is a fine looking example of England's "bad weather"....hehehe. I wouldn't have wanted to be on the battlefield with one of these bad boys barreling down on me! Nice job! Hoss

Hi all! Thanks for your kind words! About the Typhoon, Iīve read that the plane didnīt made as much damage to the tanks as it is believed. In fact, the rockets they used where not very reliable and precise. Only a small percentage of armoured vehicles where destroyed that way. But the psychological damage on tank crews was tremendous!
