  1. I used gunship gray with a few drops of white to tone it down a bit
  2. Dave, i started with NATO black as the base color, from there i lightened and darkened in places to simulate faded paint or weathered paint. Jorge
  3. If i leave the hole rotor assembled with the blades will take lots or space, that is why i just removes the blades as they do in the real ones
  4. so i finally finished this two birds, i modified the main blades so they can be removed for storage , and in order to take this pictures one next to each other. Now i am waitin the release of the Seahawk to add another one to the family
  5. Y don’t know why they add helo drab, all of them are faded black, in some you ser some helo drab color on the wings, but is because those wing were green and then painted black on top, the one in the museum you can see in the pictures the green on some areas, but just the wings
  6. i am using a mix i did myself, NATO black with a few drops of white and dark gray
  7. About 10 PSI, and i use tamiya yellow cap thinner, alclad airbrush cleaner, or the cheapest one, carburator cleaner spray bottle
  8. there is no secret, straight from the bottle to the airbrush, with low pressure
  9. hello all, i am working on a new Kitty Hawk black hawk, the decals from the model are useless, when they go to the model they are transparent and disappear on the model. Is there any good soul that is willing to sell werner's wings decals for the MH-60L nightstalkers?? best regards Jorge Oppenheimer
  10. what can i say? some folks complained about some fit issues, so far for me didnt have any fit issues and have not used any filler at all so far
  11. i am using gunship gray from MRP paint, i am not using any gloss clear coat, the paint leaves a satin finish good enough for decal placement
  12. i dont use oils on my models, airbrush work and water pencil colors
  13. main gear done and refueling probe too, this is what a have done so far
  14. main gear strus in place as well as their covers, also gunner door done
  15. next stage of the fuselage painting process Engine exhaust and exhaust deflectors in place
  16. i started painting the front part of the helo, people always ask me why i paint my model in sections?, i dont have a exact answer, what i know is it works for me, 🙂 , and it helps me to get different shades of the main color on the model so i can break the monotony of a uniform color all around the model, specially in a model this size
  17. continuing with the build, after closing the fuselage i continued with the top side, engines and transmission housing, engine cowlings will be closed because i am after a helo that is almost ready to launch in a CSAR mission
  18. 4 of the 7 figures are assembled and primed this is a resume picture of what ai have done so far
  19. after the cockpit is finished i moved into the main cabin, first the front side walls then comes the cabin roof gunners seats with Eduard PE belts next is the auxiliary fuel tank
  20. Hi everyone, long time for me here without posting , so i decided to finish 2019 with this build, it will be a OOB build and i will add 7 figures from Live Resin and the gunners seatbelts from Eduard. As always i will start with the cockpit and the main cabin, KH did an amazing work on detailing the inside of this bird
  21. Congrats Chuck, as always a masterpiece model , your patience for details is the key for a great model. Jorge
  22. Tank , when i used for the first time the rivets, was in my black hawk i did several years ago, i only used water on the rivets, and after the paint was done you can see clearly the carrier film around the rivets, thta is why i used solvaset on my LB and the carrier film is not visible at all . Jorge
  23. They are on now, after i took the pictures a remembered
