  1. Thank you Rodney. Yes. Wife’s old set. Unlike others I tried, this one doesn’t have those shiny particles/flakes mixed in, which is good.
  2. Thank you. I know what you mean with MM Acryl. I tried many thinners. The only thing that worked is their own thinner: https://www.scalehobbyist.com/catagories/Paint_and_Construction/TES00050496/product.php?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIsZq5vLfG5AIVCVYMCh2ypgroEAQYAyABEgKi1vD_BwE I couldn't get any other thinner to work properly at all. I bought this bottle as a challenge to myself (painted my A-4F mostly with that), trying to get good performance out of a seemingly not so great paint brand. For spraying, just using my Iwata airbrushes. I tend to dilute this paint a little less than I would do with other brands (seems too runny otherwise).
  3. Thanks a lot, I appreciate it. More work...
  4. Looks great. The rbf tags and the seeker covers add a lot to the presentation. I need to look into those too.
  5. Thank you very much all! In hindsight, i wish i was much more aggressive and creative with weathering. After taking too long with rescribing and assembly, i always get ultra skittish with the fear of screwing things up. I’ve got to get over that fear. I envy those who do. Hope to try a few things with my Tamiya Tomcat.
  6. Gets better and better with each update!
  7. Thank you. Still quite a bit of airbrush work is ahead of me. I am studying reference pictures of VF-142 as well as other gull gray Tomcats. Trying to decide what to do with the airbrush vs with oils.
  8. Thank you very much, I appreciate it.
  9. Thank you! More post-shading...
  10. Thank you all. This stage is where i have most fun! CJ: you’re right, the base is pure h315, later post-shaded with a little white adde to the gray. The darker post-shade layer is not on yet. The effect currently is too subtle. After a gloss coat and oil rendering layers, it would be pretty much all lost. So i think more contrast is necessary now with the darker shade. Will be out for a week for work, so hopefully will back with more updates then!
  11. The three 1/32 Turkish Phantoms look awesome!
  12. Another small update. Nearing the more exciting parts of the build.
