  1. In your opinnion is there a real noticeable difference in sizes or it would pass?
  2. I'll see what I can do definatly! I hadn't seen it until you pointed it out! one of the few times I touched it without gloves! damn!
  3. The canopy is closed! and as you can see, fitting is really good even if it was designed to be open, you just have to trim the tabs and voila, and you can see how far my scratching skills took me! I made the comunication cables!
  4. If you aloud me Oliver I'd like to share a thought... is really sad to realize this "thing" happens everywhere, I thought it was a third world thing, I live in Guatemala a poor country with lots of ignorance, One just have to get off the box by a tiny bit, to be drawn back in, One just have to be good at something and everybody tries to drop their hammers on them, that's for real life instances, but in modelling is almost the same or even worst! if one does something really nice, gets cursed and everybody starts looking for flaws and they are just nost able to see the effort and/or beauty in it! What is wrong people!? This build is not 100% accurate, so what? it has a lot of work and a lot of nice things going on and that's the whole purpose of this hobby I don't see Oliver around hammering people cause they don't do the things the way he does! what I do see is Gino stepping in every chance he thinks he has, to point out inaccuracies, even tho Oliver has stated many times, he just doesn't care! can't you guys deal with that!? I've never seen Oliver hammering Gino over his shitty paint jobs! EVER! he only mentioned ONCE! and now we have this guy jumping in for the first time just to critizice! not the model but a comment! come on! Do you really like to look like us? ...third world mediocre people? oliver you don't have to be told to keep up the good job, you are just gonna keep going! I just wouldn't like you to keep it for yourself to avoid these cons! Sorry to put more dirt on this awesome thread but some guys just suck! and I had to say it!
  5. The ones provided in the kit.
  6. Ohh I wish I knew a couple of months ago!!! it's been so hard to find references online! and since I'm not familiar with helos it's been even harder! I hope I was able to make something worth your effort! in any case it's a very nice scheme!
  7. I agree with you! after the wash it was different! in a nice way!
  8. No tail sitting problems! but I have to say that I paniqued a bit when first stood on the skids it did sit back! until the rotor was positioned in its place, no seats, no wings, no canopy installed but it went back, even with the extra weight, so the line there is very fuzzy. It stands like this!
  9. Some "fancy" shots! Apologies for the dusty surface! and until these pics I didn't notice a mould mark right behind the gun housing! I'll have to live with that!
  10. Since my painting technique is 40% technique and more than 60% luck, lol, I was affraid of not beeing able to continue with the same pattern and maybe a difference would be visible but I don't think so! or maybe I just don't want to see it hehe It's always been really hard for me to paint black parts and give them a faded look, for some reasson it just doesn't happen, This time it wasn't so bad tho And finally I got to decals! they are a bit on the thick side but Micro set and Micro sol did the job well! And I guess/hope it is starting to look like a Viper! Regards
  11. Thank you sir! appreciated!
  12. Great! I take more pics than I show, so if you ever need something that is not posted, chances are I have it documented, and don't hesitate to give me a holler!
  13. BTW the inside of the air intakes is gonna be painted further ahead...or I'll try to put a cover, cause there are a couple of sink marks and a seam that is almost imposible to cure, keep that in mind, cause it is visible from the outside!
  14. BTW if you go for a modular build as I did, you won't have to worry about fitting, I just had to trim a little bit of the lip and the placement was really smooth and it looks really good! no filler was used, here a dry fit pic Then I moved to the gloss layer and wash, I know is a bit "harsh" but as I mentioned before, I need some dirt on my models so...
  15. Unfortunatly the build is moving faster than this thread so the Viper is a bit ahead and the green house is already closed, didn't dare un-building it to do what you said, but I'll give it a try on next seat for sure!
  16. I will give it a try for sure! even thoug I'm scared of ruining it lol! Thnx for watching!
  17. I was thinking about adding some kind of padding to the seats, bu t I had to face the fact that I suck at adding stuff to my models, so I took a different road and IMHO it worked pretty good, you be the judges So all I did was, painted the seats Gloss Black with a "thik" layer, and left it to dry for about a half hour, then I pressed a Jeans label against it and voila! I had to do it twice cause after an hour the impression began to fade away, I guess the paint self levels it self, but pressed it again and the result is there, What do you guys think?
  18. I forgot to show you how the cockpit came out. I painted most of it but I used decals suplied with the kit for screens and drops of future to give them some shine and deepness I know the floor shuld've been gray but I noticed it when it was already late
  19. Yes sir they are! I'm hopping to build the Venom too but still thinking about the options! I'm liking helos! and these two, must go together!
  20. Thnx bro! I dig colorful, over top schemes on models! I'm not good at giving life to gray paint jobs!
  21. The stripe is separated where the tail boom meets the fuselage, actually there is no gold over the engines but only in front of them if you take a look at the following pic you'll see what I say So at this stage it looks kinda weird, but if I join both pieces it starts looking a bit more sensed I hope that answers your question and I hope I haven't done something wrong without realizing it!
  22. thnx Whiskey, my technique is simple, preshade with NATO black over the panel lines, then base paint, in this case 36375, applying fine layers built up from the center of the panel to the outer side, then the same color but with some drops of white to create that faded look of the paint in kind of a random pattern but keeping the pattern inside panels, adding if needed as I go! if you take a closer look at the pics you can see what I did, a bit of luck is needed if you ask me! lol!!! at least in my case! Regards!
