  1. 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-35S Flanker-E, Russian Air Force, 2014

    Very nice job on this one. I got one today (Chinese AF). What bothers me is canopy. It's very thick on sides. Seems strange. Was yours similar?
  2. Is it just me being blind or they forgot to add paint colors/numbers? http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10490885
  3. 1/48 Meng's F-35A

    Thanks! The main color is a mix of Mr. Paint 36170 and Hataka 36170 with few drops of Hataka C060 which is dark grey. The ram panels were air brushed with slighlty lightened Mr. Paint 36170. After that the whole aircraft was sprayed with Tamiya clear mixed with smoke as I was not happy with the overall shade of the paint job (too light). After setting the decals I gave her a finish coat of satin varnish.
  4. 1/48 Meng's F-35A

    Thanks! Yes, I have used the light tent. In addition I have used the focus stacking technique and shot multiple pictures with small focus adjustment to keep the entire object sharp independently of the distance from the lens. The fit was pretty good except the weapons bay doors which I have chosen to be closed. As for the doors hinge rod it's just an imitation. Meng did not designed them to be movable.
  5. 1/48 Meng's F-35A

    Done out of the box. I used DN Models masks for RAM panels - great stuff BTW. Very little to almost zero weathering. Only some wash on gear struts and wheel wells. The refference photos I checked of this particullar airframe show her to be pretty clean. Thanks for watching. https://www.flickr.com/photos/97358250@N06/albums/72157666768155969
  6. F-35/ Have Glass paints

    Appologies for the quality but I was too lazy to set the light tent up. From the left: - MRP 36170 and Hataka 36270 for RAM panels. All covered with MRP have glass varnish - MRP 36170 and MRP 36270. Then all covered with MRP have glass varnish. - Hataka 36170 (it has metalic finish as sprayed)
  7. F-35/ Have Glass paints

    I gave a try to MRP 36170 and 36270 per Furball instruction but it doesn't look right to me. I think I will mix 36170 and 36270 to reduce the contrast. I am going to post some pictures from my spoon trials later today. New F-35s like these from Hill AFB seem to have the ram panels looking more like a base coat.

    How did you mask that demercation line? That seems to be very painful.

    Beautiful work. Very nice scheme.
  13. Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1 Corsair

    One more.
  14. Basically out of the box except IP which was from Yahu Models. I should have replaced the decals too since they are very thick. Painted primarly with Mr. Hobby Aqueous. Hi-res pictures can be found here. https://www.flickr.com/photos/97358250@N06/albums/72157680328333012
