    The dorsal fin made from scratch looks great!
  6. Thank you for you kind words. Don first color to apply was the Alclad II Aluminium color. It was sprayed over Valleyo acrilic primer which was polished. After aplying NMF another round of polishing was done. And after that cam invasion marks and blue nose. I have never had any problems with Alclad in peeling off or damaging the surface by masking. So far I used acrilic and enamel primer with alclad and also sprayed the stuff directly to plastic. And then masking on the NMF surface. And so far everything was OK. The only thing thats important is to spray it on glossy or finely grinded surface.
  7. The colors are on. For base color I used Alclad II Aluminium. Primož

  15. MAISTER CUP 2014 Dear fellow modelers! Model making has been closely related to distant as well as recent history which is the main source model makers draw their ideas from. Scale models are the result of passionate study of various sources, model maker's awareness of the materials they use in recreating events or objects, as well as their devotedness to including the minutest of details, hardly noticeable to the untrained eye. As such, they play an important part in understanding an event or an object caught in time. Model making is not only a relaxing hobby but rather a way of life. Model makers of different ages, professional backgrounds and nationalities all speak the same 'model-making' language. The latter is brought to life when different scale models about a single subject or those in the same scale factor are displayed on a single table, with model makers eagerly comparing them, studying each representation and feeling excited at innovative approaches and techniques in crafting interesting details etc. In our endeavours to grow awareness about the importance of model making, share our model-making enthusiasm with all those interested, and perhaps make new people join the model-making sphere, Maketarski klub Maribor (Scale Model Club Maribor) decided to hold a contest in the beginning of 2014. We decided to name it Meister Cup 2014 to pay homage to the Slovenian general and poet Rudolf Meister who left a significant mark on our country’s history. We would hereby like to invite you to the Maister Cup scale model contest which will take place in the Elementary School Rače near Maribor on 25 January 2014.

  16. Wildcat Mk.VI RN FAA Hobby Boss 1/72 http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=266361 Primož
  17. Last step before finishing the model, was to rebuild and paint the propeler. Hobby Boss out of box propeler had cufs, but I nedded one without them. So from the spare box old catalina prop was modified. Primož
  18. I did some photos of the semi finished model on white background. Soon there will be a new member in GB gallery. Primož
  19. Decals are on and the weathering is almost done. For Weathering proces I used dark grey filter, black pastel powder to enhance the panel lines and sepia brown, redish brown and black washes. Main undercariage legs painted and weathered. Regards! Primož
  20. So next step was to cover all preshading with blue (Valleyo 087 Dark Sea Blue) The result is a bit lighter than it should be. But dark grey filters will do the work. Primož
