  1. Just finished! Hi res pictures can be found here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/97358250@N06/albums/72157685716565622
  2. 1/72 F-16C Block 52+

    Very nice indeed.
  3. Meng F-35 available

    That was Charlie Lightning not Alfa but still great idea.

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

    One more.
  6. 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

    Adding one more picture.

    I sprayed heavely diluted MM acrylics for both white and gull gray at very low pressure. I used original green bottle Testors thinner for acrylics. Honestly they sprayed quite nicely from very short distance with the trigger pulled back very gently. I had to lay 3 layers to get nice coverage. Generally speaking I was positively surprised however I tried some mat MM acrylics recently and had nozzle clogging issue. The gloss MM acrylics seemed to have no issue. As for the adhesion - I used Vallejo primer to which the paint sticks well unless the primer flakes off :). I also tried MM spraying acrylics on a clear plastic and they stick ok but would be very careful with masking tape as I observe pull up on the sharp edges (could be bad surface cleanness). The huge advantage of these paints is that they do not stink.

    I agree, the panel line wash is way too dark. I was struggling with gray tone selection and all the grays I got in stash seemed too light or too brownish to me. I finally used almost black one and looks too dark now. Thanks, Dan

    Thanks a lot!
  11. F-16's and Conformal Fuel Tanks

    The down side of the CFTs is that they cannot be dropped in-flight nor the fuel dumped when you need less weight in dogfight.
  12. Great job on this one and and nice looking camo. I like the way Japanese paint their jets.
  13. 1/48 Tamiya F-16C "Blizzard" Aggressor

    Very nice!
  14. Finally done. I was building her since November. Mostly out of the box except nose gear damper which I made from metalic tube. People say it is a great kit and indeed it is but there are few things that really grind my gears like the windscreen starboard edge fit or the wing gloves which are hard to glue without damage to the retractable vane panel lines. I used MM acrylics for major colors and other brands mostly Tamiya, Gunze and Vallejo for detailing. I will shoot few more pictures showing details some time later.

  15. Great job on the Viper. What is your experience with the Hataka acrylics? Did they spray well?
