Both the Ju88 and the 234 look great as do the rest of your builds I might add.

Mark

Do you use some kind of varnish to finish them?
Yes, I always finish my models with a matt varnish. Recently I mostly used Humbrol Matt Cote. But I also like ModelMaster matt varnish.

Airfix 1/76 Thorneycroft Amazon with Coles crane
From the Airfix RAF Recovery Set
Finished September 2017
Image
The Thorneycroft Amazon with Coles crane was a universal hoisting and towing device for the Royal Air Force from the late 1930's until after the war. It was used to hoist engines and gun turrets, recover crashed planes, tow immobile aircraft, etc. My version has the SCC2/SCC14 disruptive camo from the 1942-1944 period. Although second line vehicles often carried this scheme for a longer period. For a change I let it recover a V1 flying bomb which is coming from a Frog Arado 234 kit, under the close supervision of some high brass.
The RAF Recovery Set is a very nice kit although with lots of issues. But it lends itsself very much to superdetailing, conversions and imaginative diorama's. Lots of parts and lots of modelling fun in a small box. I intend to build the Bedford tractor with Queen Mary trailer later.
This kit was built in the framework of the 2017 RAF vehicle group build.

Look here for the full build thread

Look for more pics in the Gallery

I like very much that diorama, Huib: a great use for the Coles Crane!
It's very good painted and the V1 puts an intriguing item in the diorama.
Thanks for the answer about the varnish, also.
