    Weak point is that what ever has to be done open... It is very difficult to close especially the air Brakes. And also very difficult is the wind screen because in my case it was smaller than the Fuselage...

    Hello!! About the panel lines i realized a problem when i first saw the Kit, half of it was pretty well engraved but the other Half... was like plain!! So i engraved it just to make it possible to have a pin wash... I came with a conclusion with the KINETIC kits.... never Buy the first production!! I have done the same mistake with The EA-6B and this one... but i was pretty lucky with the F-16I and the SU-33 ..

    Thank you both!! Hard to believe it too that is a descent Kinetic kit.
  9. My latest completed model is from Kinetic Models and is a part of the Falklands War The Super Etendard in 1/48th scale. The model is OOB,colours From Gunze for lower and upper surfaces and the Final Varnish Model Master Laquer Flat, Very good kit good overall fitting except from the Windscreen that was a bit tricky cause was 2mm smaller than the Fuselage also with some minor mistakes especially in the AM-39 Missile carrier (completelly wrong!!!) But i will live with that! Feel free to mention any mistakes. Cheers, George.

    Thank you Guys!!! The colour was a puzzle to be Honest!!! But the best part followed!! And... the Decals must Go on!!! :) Simply superb!! The decals are Super!!!That is the best quality that i have used since one time i tried Two Bobs Decals The entire model was taken care with a soft cloth and i didn't use any Gloss varnish, The shine that you can see is only by rubbing the surface. The undersise of the Aircraft was a bit easier to get this shiny appearence because the already Gloss white Thinned with Levelling just shines by its self!! Also took care of the payload... One Fuel Tank and the mighty Exocet Missile... Just to mention that the Pylon of the Exocet is COMPLETELY WRONG!!!! But i didn't want to fix it cause needed a lot of things.. Next time maybe. Next time i hope to update with the Landing Gear... Thank you for watching!!!! Cheers!!!

    After a long search in the web i couldn't match an exact colour From Gunze to paint te upper surface of the plane. The lower one was easy H316 Gloss white, Sky blue from TAMIYA for the Flag,Gloss Black for the Radome and H308 for the stripe between the Fuselage and the Radome But the upper was a puzzle..so decided to play a game!!! I mixed a Dark Sea Grey with intermediate Blue and fom pics matched the colour sa much as i could. imagehostingimagehostingimagehostingimagehostingimagehostingfree image hostfree image host Next step.. Decals I hope you like it! Cheers, George.

    Hello again!! Had some time to post so New post!!! Unfortunatelly the kit have a lot of issues... First of all a lot of sanding in the whole Fuselage and in some places i used CA glue to fix it! The worst of all was thow that when i tried to Attach the Windscreen..i found out that it was.. 1.5mm smaller than the fuselage!!!!!!!!!!!!! To fix the canyon..sorry the 'Gap' i used CA Glue, Putty and a lot of sanding.. Furthermore half of the left fuselage is not scribed very well.... But..doesn;t matter....and Keep on the French Lady. Put some weight inside in the front section how to screenshot on windows 7 Used alclad to paint te interior of the Inlet of the plane, but to be Honnest..it's Not Worth it, because you can;t see a thing in there!! how to screenshot on windows 7how to screenshot on windows 7 The rest of the Fuselage connected...and sand again...and again.. And the 'Bird' is something like that... free screen capture softwarefree screen capture software The outer wings are not connected yet!! Thank you again!!!
  15. Good evening to all!! New Aircraft on the bench... Maybe one of the few non U.S Navy planes that i would like to have in stash!. The kit is from KINETIC 1/48 scale and started as usual from the Cockpit area, The whole one is painted Black but to make it a bit alive i used several black colours, The basic one is From MM Interio Aircraft Black FS37031 following With H12 Flat black from Gunze and the last one drybrushed Chaos Black from Citadel. Several switches were painted red-gray-yellow. upload image online freeupload image online freeupload image online free Next step was the Exhaust sector. I found pretty difficult to paint the Inner section of it so i decided to make a surgery, I just cut it as close as the Fan was and paint it inside with MM Metallizer colours The first one was Titanium Second Burnt Metal and last one Exhaust with a thin layer to replicate the Exhaust of the engine. upload an imageupload an image For the Fan i used MM metallizer also With Titanium and Burnt metal And dry brushed the edges with Stainless steel to make it a bit Lighter. upload an image The pretty difficult one it that the bays of the landing gear have a lot of pinmarks... The covers are really beauty cause they are completely free of them!! A lot of sanding is need to fix this one!! So... Be patient! Thank you!!!!
