    Dark Blue Killer - Tamiya 1/32 F4U-1D Corsair

    11Bee Have you thought about trying 2K automotive clear? I bought a kit at the local paint shop for my model cars and it is great. Have not tried it on an aircraft kit yet but it will be happening soon I hope! Another clear I have tried and that is Mission Models Gloss clear it is also nice.

    Very nice start! Can't wait to the this one all finished up.
  7. I would like to build a Hornet for this group build but have not found decals in 1/72 for the Hornets. Didn't like the 1st Top Gun movie and will not watch this one.

    Model Mission paints - Thoughts?

    mike I am using ghe Mission Model paints on my current build for the Top Gun Group build. I am very impressed with the paint! I have used many different type paints and this stuff is great! I follow the mix instruction to a T. My F-16N build is without using the poly mix addative. Main thing I have learned about this stuff and I sill stress it this tip. Use primer! I have been using stylenrez primer and have had no paint lifting yet.

    Hasegawa 1/72 F-16N

    Update: 10/7/2018 Got the paint on, not the best but it will do. Paint is the Mission Models Paint. I have to say this stuff is pretty easy to work with.

    Ernie why do you think were having all this rain and flooding plus facing two possible tropical storms! Because things are whacked in South Texas. I have a feeling Xavier is working on something in his hidden lab.
