  1. Great to see that you’re back and at it again with this one. Looking forward to seeing your progress! 👌🏻😎 /Emil
  2. Cheers Jens! I dont know about Björn but... For the underside I´d preshade and mottle with a dark blue and then use RLM 65 or 76 from Mr. Hobby as a starting point. These are pretty much spot on for the light blue. I know some people like to use Tamiya XF-66 aswell. But in my opinion this is waaay too dark and too grey. For enamels I´d start with Humbrol 23 or 87 and then darken/lighten to taste. The color for the 1:1 A/C was called 058 Mörkt Blågrå (058 Dark Blue-Grey). And this was used from the 1940-ies all the way up until the 1990-ies. In 19
  3. This guy... http://bjornsmodeller.blogspot.com/2015/07/saab-j-35j-draken-hasegawa-148-2015.html Who is a pretty well known Swedish modeller used Mr Hobby paints to give his J35F a pretty convincing finish. He used H 52 Olive drab lightened with H 337 Light Grey and some H309 Olive green to create the dark green color. For the navy blue he used a number of different paints starting with a base consistning of H 54 Navy Blue and H 55 Midnight blue. Both of these were lightened with H 337 respectively. He also added some turqoise paint to get the greenish
  4. Seems like I’m a bit late to the party on this one. But as a long time Topcoat 501 user I tought I’d chip in. It really is an excellent product! The trick to getting nice gloss coats from the can with the TC is to really mist the stuff on at first. Repeated light passes over and over until the surface looks slightly wet and slightly pebbly. Now stop and do not panic at this stage, it’s all good. 😀 Let it sit in room temperature for 15-20 minutes. When you come back to it the clear will have levelled and a sheen is there. Then hit it again in the same manner. If using the TC as
  5. I really like this. Super clean finish! Well done! 🙂
  6. Hi! I´m making my way back to the hobby after a long break and thought I´d share my latest completion with you. The 1/72 Special Hobby Do 27 in Bundesluftwaffe Norm 62 colours. I love the "day-glo" on these schemes as it provides such a nice contrast to the drab of the camouflage. Built straight out of the box and painted with Tamiya and Gunze paints except for the flourescent orange which is Vallejo Air. I also added belts from Tamiya tape cut in strips. Such a nice kit, thoroughly recommended. Just take care that the glass (front canopy and roof obser
  7. Hiya mate! Not sure you remember me. we had some discussion on russian jets several years ago. I´ve only just returned to modelling after a loong break. And thought I´d say hi. 🙂 This is such a nice model. Is it still mostly brushpainted? I know you´re a master with the "hairy-stick". Love the detail work. Especially the visible engine. Kind regards! Emil from Sweden
  8. Looks great Dragan! Even if the kit gave you trouble, the results are wonderful! Cheers! Emil
  9. This is coming along really, really well Jan! I think this is a super good build from a guy that´s "no car modeller" You will find that the clear looks awesome after waxing. I´ll be here watching mate! Emil
  10. Hiya! Great job there Janman! I´ve built a quite a few cars recently and I think I´m starting to get the hang of it so if it is something you wanna know about painting or polishing or something else just shoot me a PM or reply in the thread. And I´ll keep looking at this modelling masterclass. A car I built not long ago.......Very much recommended If you wanna have another go! 1/24 Fujimi Ferrari F430 Spider. (Iknow It´s missing the rearview mirrors I´ve added them now) :D Cheers! Emil
  11. Hiya! Is there anyone on here who know where to find pictures of the Cockpit and any prominent features on the Italian twin seat starfighters as I´m soon gonna start a bird from the 4th stormo, 20th gruppo of the AMI. Especially ones showing the sidewall detail of the cockpit would be appreciated . My 1/48 th Hasegawa bird is pretty bare there. Thanks! Emil
