  1. I added a little just because, but I don't think it required it.
  2. Oh yeah, the 1979 kit decals were a royal PITA! but I got them to go down after cleaning all the disintegrating backing paper off the decal in the water. And thank the model gods for Solvaset
  3. Progress has been slow but moving, she's finally standing on her own legs!
  4. There should be an unfinished project swap build
  5. A few pics from a little airshow here in Qatar. Of course the sky went to heck when the Eurofighter came out at the end of the show.
  6. I would settle for premade cockpit plugs so you can just pop one in just before painting the aircraft, make them out of the same rubber that airbrush O-rings are made out of so they are solvent friendly.
  7. Thanks guys! Here she is looking a little glossy...
  8. Was having issues with the two greens in my AK Vietnam SEA set, so I switched to the Hataka Lacquer Vietnam SEA set, also just went for it and shot freehand, got fed up with my templates.
  9. Putting down the camo, guess I need to work on being more "spotty" with the black base camo technique.
  10. I love Voodoo's! Good job on the varied metallic tones!
  11. Nice clean finish! It makes me happy looking at it!
  12. Excellent work on the Tomcat! She came out really nice!
  13. Great job! You have inspired me to give the Black Basing a try on my F-5 project!
  14. Gratz on completing your build, she came out really nice!
  15. Dang, I'm all back of the bus and stuff! Finally got some time away from work to get back to the bench, touched up any remaining sanding woes and gave her a coat of Ammo by Mig One Shot Black Primer (great stuff!). I will be trying the Black Basing technique for the first time spraying SEA camo. Too bad I'm not building a black jet! A nice little dust film had settled on the model as it sat waiting for attention, I used a new Hudy brush to remove all the dust, worked perfectly, not just for R/C Buggy cleaning anymore!
  16. Do a search online for Aerofred F-5F, he has some nice line drawings of the F-5F. If you look at full scale F-5s, many of their panel lines are very difficult to see.
  17. Had to reshoot some of the Silver on the fuselage sides, apparently that stickiness it has retained doesn't like to be touched very much
  18. Work has been cutting into my hobby time, finally was able to sand the seam areas on the topside of airframe. This handy sanding tool really helps keep the sanding to the immediate area, almost a must to sand around the raised panel lines.
  19. I used to use Oven Cleaner spray (the foaming type) to remove the paint from pre-painted model railroad locomotive shells, sounds harsh but it worked well. A lot of toy grade models are painted in something other than Acrylic to make them more durable for playing with.
  20. Toothpick drops of Zap Formula 560, doesn't dry brittle which makes weapons prone to breaking off if jarred, used to glue canopies on Radio Controlled airplanes, dries very clear.
