  1. Yes, looks incredibly beautiful. I can't see anything that I go 'meh'
  2. Really nice finish. Yours looks better than the real thing.
  3. Incredibly beautiful. I look forward to your next updates.
  4. https://www.seaforces.org/usnair/VFA/Strike-Fighter-Squadron-211.htm A few pics of the CAG bird 2005-2006 at the bottom of the page. Not the exact one you're looking for, but the time frame is there. Weathering can be 'inspired' by the CAG bird there.
  5. That 35327 looks like 36118 Gunship gray. I can't begin to imagine the top of the Tomcat being that dark out of the paint barn. Same thing for the ghost grays. I am not disputing that these are the official chips, but something doesn't add up. One could argue the overall difference in scale (looking a chip unclose vs a Tomcat from a difference) is the cause but even then I can't see a panel cut out from the real thing being this dark. The only thing that comes to my mind is the saturation. When painting, if these paints are going onto a lighter base primer, and the paint is not sp
  6. Hi, if you are interested in tinting F-16D specifically, I gave it a shot here: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/238118-148-tamiya-f-16c-f-16d-tuaf-152-filo/&do=findComment&comment=2270139 Here is also something I had tried also in the past, but more of a learning experience (both what worked, what didn't): http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/206922-f-18f-hasegawa-148/&do=findComment&comment=2034089 I see my recent F-18C has been brought up, thank you Andy, Richard, I was going to post that also. If I were t
  7. Looking so sharp. I am especially impressed by the clarity of the canopy. The red and blue lights at the nose and tail tip, how did you paint them? Looks so good.
  8. Thank you Ichitoe, Rich! Work continues. Was told on FB that the tails were too splayed out. Confirmed it, then decided to fix it. Overall not perfect but I think blends ok with all the dirt and grime in the rest of the tails and the fuselage. I should have measured it when I was first gluing them.
  9. I really love what I am reading to be the Russian demo version of the Su-27SKM (from wiki): I believe this is a one-of scheme. Is it possible to build this version out of this new GWH kit? I looked around a bit but all I see is the mention of a new engine for the SM and I also see the IRST placement is different. Not sure if differences in the engines are internal or if the cans are also impacted. So, while this looks like a no-go, I'm curious to hear what other differences there are.
  10. Thank you all, still slowly chugging along.
