    RSAF F-15C

    Kaan, I am a great fan of your models. I will be following this build closely. On the Blackbox Website Jeff is doing a step by step build on the Tamiya F-16 pit it should be fun to watch.Heres the link....Mark http://www.vmdstudios.com/Page3.html
  16. Mike, Yes I had heard the sad news of Kens untimely death. I worked with Ken on the flightline at Wright-Patt in the 906th FG. MarkH
  17. Mike, Did you know Kenny Stout.I think he was an F-16 crew chief at Edwards at this time.Nice build...Mark
  18. I took some MM 36118 in a large jar and added 1/3 Testors glosscote and 25 drops of semi-gloss white and thinned the mix with Testors thinner.I sprayed this mix over the pre-shaded model.I then took a small amount from this large bottle and added 5 more drops of white and used this on the insides of some of the panels.I then used 36118 right from the bottle for the dark highlights.Once this drys I will highlight some of the panel lines with a mechanical pencil. Thanks for looking..Mark
  19. I airbrushed the lighter color with Tamiya Flat alumininum then brush painted Tamiya Gunmetal on the darker areas.I then brush painted a thin coat of Dark grey artists gouache to highlight and give a flat finish that I had seen at an airshow.Thanks for looking..Mark
