  1. Thanks! Actually currently I'm looking at some AKAN paints to get. I'm trying to do the operational colours, so the eggplant isn't what I'm going for. What I noticed after some researching, is that it seems like there are some variants in the shades of camo that they're using. At this point I'm trying to decide what colours to get, and also kind of convinced to discard the original KH colour guides, which are quite unrealistic. Also correct me if I'm wrong, but the Eggplant scheme is for pre-operational purposes, is it?
  2. What colour should we use for the Su-35? I have the Model Master 2121 and 2122. I feel the instruction guide's colour reference aren't the most accurate. Any thoughts? Also, anyone have any use for part C 36? And it seems like this kit has a lot holes not coloured. Anyone noticed?
  3. while we are at this, what colour should be used for the su-35? especially if it's gonna be in mr hobby colors? and how accurate?
  4. Hello Everyone, I have a WIP Hasegawa Longbow right now that I hope I can convert to a Guardian. I've done some early research but so far hasn't found anything that can help me do this successfully. I'm wondering if anyone can gimme a hand, especially in terms of referring me to resin or other converter kits. Thanks!
  5. By the way everyone here's my final completed project. I hope I didn't disappoint. Here it is: Airsupremacist's Revell 1/48 F-15E Strike Eagle
  6. Thanks Scott! I will give that a try! I do have one area where I needed to do some fixing, and I hope the sanding will help. The fluid collected and formed this weird leathery texture along that area.
  7. Not sure what that was, but I painted it according to what I saw during my research. With his buddies..the 5th gen F-22 and the 4.5 gen J-10B
  8. The JFS that I included The Sniper pod. The LANTIRN pod. I tried my best to paint the "window" to match as closely to the real thing as possible. GPS dot next to the airbrake. The Sniper pod again. The interior of the nozzle. Also no silvering for the decals!
  9. The weapons, including the AIM-9X The chaff/flare dispensers, with the chaff behind the Sniper Pod and the flares behind the LANTIRN pod.
  10. After months of effort, bad luck, spent paint, and terrible messes, I'm proud to present the Revell 1/48 F-15E Strike Eagle. Background: Of all the fighter jets out there, my favorite is the F-15 Eagle. However since the F-15E came out and is much more advanced in every way, I decided to make this my signature work. For that reason, I had done a lot of preparation for this project, including doing research by looking at photos, buying aftermarket parts, and getting the appropriate color paints because the instructions are sometimes wrong. Other things I prepared for this project included: ai
  11. Hi guys I'm at my final finishing coat stage for my F-15E. I tried the Future + Tamiya Flat Coat airbrushing lately and it caused frosting. It took me some efforts to restore the plane but I restored it again, and also had a coat of Future on top of the plane which makes it really shiny. This coat of Future also happened to seal down the decals that were not affected when I restored the plane. A few decals were damaged so I reapplied those after I applied that Future, which meant most of the decals are sealed by Future while a few were applied after the Future and thus unprotected. Anyways of
  12. All I can say is holy shoot (I literally said that 20 times or so) when trying the reapplying the Future technique as Storm had suggested. That stuff works like magic. I was thinking to myself, "Well my model's already fracked up, so nothing to lose right?" as I attempted it. And surely enough, ALL the frosting disappeared. The plane is still wet as we speak, but daymn I literally watched my baby restored to original colors as it occurred. Man, if there is a God of Modelling and Craft somewhere up there, I bet you his blood flows Future or something. That stuff is crazy.
  13. By lacquer thinner, what will that be if you can specify? Maybe as in particular brands, for example? I guess I will give it a shot with the Future coat as well.
  14. Thanks. Does that mean my Mr Color coats will also come off as well?
  15. Anyways so I was applying my finishing coat after the the decals then I messed up... bad. It started with perhaps spraying too much onto the plane and causing some drips and uneven surfaces. I saw this small white spot so I decided to rub it off. I ended up rubbing off the pre-decal coat too that was underneath, which created a model plane's version of a batman 2-face. I decided to wash everything off and redo it all instead, but what ends up happening is now my plane is covered with white frosting which I suspected to be either dried Tamiya Flat base or also the Future. Is there anything I
  16. seems like from what i'm understanding is that even though those fumes are bad for you, the person will still need to breathe in a huge amount before damage begins eh?
  17. In fact, I was just checking my GBU-31 which I just applied Tamiya Primer on, and the color and even the texture came out the exact same as the coloured AMRAAM. I wasn't sure if I should apply another coat of 308 until I saw some chipping, which confirmed my decision to spray one extra coat just in case. Just wondering, so I suppose the pre-decal coat is ok if I use only Future without any mixtures and ratio, right?
