    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?
  10. Is it just me being blind or they forgot to add paint colors/numbers? http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10490885

    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.

    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.

    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
