  1. Thanks! Probably will be easier to use this as opposed to just sanding them down.
  2. Sounds like I need to do my homework on this. Thank you though for the detailed information!
  3. Fair enough. Yes I completely agree that this aircraft was skipped over by model companies. It is a shame because it is a pretty unique and well storied aircraft. Do you recommend a certain -E or -F model in 1/72?
  4. Funny that is being discussed. I've been pondering an aircraft from the Gulf War for the 30th anniversary coming up and have found the F-111 appealing and was going to make a post on what a good choice would be for 1/48. But seriously, if there are any recommendations for a 1/48 scale F-111 that would make a nice example from Desert Storm, I'm all ears 😂
  5. This is all great information. Thank you to everyone who shared their thoughts. I suppose that whichever method I choose....it will be a long process. Could always be worse.
  6. Do you remove the line completely? I have thought of that and would be concerned about removing the line completely and scribing in the wrong spot.
  7. I have that tape, it is really god stuff!
  8. Thanks for the info. So it sounds like the raised lines should be used as the guide to scribe the new ones, then sand them down afterwards?
  9. I'm looking to add the 1/48 Monogram F-105 to my shelf at some point in the near future. From what I've read, its the best Thud kit out there. However, it has raised panels lines. On many builds I have seen others remove the raised panel lines, and scribe new ones. I have never done this before and wanted to check with others on what the best methods would be for this type of task. Thanks in advance.
  10. I hope you are successful in this effort! It would be great to have a new and fresh subject. Everything these days is flooded with F-somethings and MiG-somethings. I think for both the G-2 and Jastreb, you can probably be able to make either version with just one kit? It would be a difference in having a single seat/canopy and twin seat/canopy.
  11. This would be a cool subject. Yugoslavia had a good aerospace industry during their high times. Just from the pictures presented, there are many versions that can be done by the modeler. It would be a nice size in 1/48. I believe it is similar to the L-29. Any thoughts on the J-22 Orao or G-4 Super Galeb?
  12. See the last paragraph on my venture trying to tackle the greenish color. It was a tough code to crack, Russian colors always are. Let me know if you have any questions. http://www.arcair.com/Gal16/15001-16100/gal15003-MiG-29C-Vlad/00.shtm
  13. You know, it just seems a little too gray for my eye. I just see more of a blue hue so today I switched the ratios and tried 75% 1741 and 25% 1725. To me this seems to have a little more blue hue to it. The Syhart call out is next to it for comparison. I hope you can see it well enough, it was kind of a challenge to get the correct light.
  14. Well that's embarrassing 😂 Using the correct mixes this time, this is what I got. It still seemed dark so I added some white to the mix just to see what it does. It almost seems like from the reference photos, this would be a factory fresh finish, with the color fading in different ways with use. This is just as challenging as matching Russian colors 😂
