  1. With the bench cleared after the Yak-130 build, it's time to have some French fun!

    Thank you, guys! Decalling is done!
  5. Have you used Polished Alu before, or some other Alclad. As per Alclad instructions, only regular Alclad paints can be masked, while their high-shine series cannot... at least without some sort of coating. Polished Alu is one of the high-shine line along with Chrome, Stainless Steel, Airframe Alu and some others.

    The kit supplied masks for the Red and Black were of a lot of help. However the masks for the transition from the intakes to the canards weren't as good and had to be replaced with Tamiya Masking tape.

    Not much time so not much progress... But it is an important step in this build - primed with Mig's Ammo One Shot Primer. Just a few touch ups to be done and she'll get a coat of white tomorrow evening.
  8. Here she is finished! For those who haven't followed the in-progress thread, if you're still interested: Not much can be said about the build that hasn't been yet before.

    Thanks guys! I have yet to see, Steven. Luckily there is space in the front gear well (the main door was normally closed on ground) if need arises.

    Time to continue with this beauty! Cockpit is made of combination of plastic parts, photo etched parts and decals. Martin Baker Mk.10 seat looks really great out of the box. A major problem that I stumbled upon - if you wanna build the closed canopy, the instrument bay cover, that's attached to the canopy (similar arrangement as F-15) will get into conflict with the "shelf" just behind the ejection seat. I had to cut that shelf in half and remove the whole avionics bay to get the canopy closed. Of course, if doing the open canopy, you wouldn't have such problems. And TA-DAAAA - we have the rough shape of the aircraft. Of course, a lot of things still to be done on the model but stay tuned for more!

    Monogram 1/72 EF-111 Raven Prototype

    Cool build! You don't see many Ravens and even less in prototype schems.

    Sweet scheme!

    F-23A Black Widow II - the rollout

    Really cool build, mate! I've been following your progress from the beginning and I really like what I see now. Also cool to see a stealth fighter weathered.

    Revell 1/144 AN-124

    Ha, another sucker to apply all those red Xs 😄 Well done! Have built one ages ago when it was first released and I still have one in the stash for future build.
  17. Really cool job, Janne! Love the loaded look of Intruder!

    Thanke you, mate! Grazie Gianni! 1 month... with a full time 24/7 job and a little kid in the house I do consider this fast 😃 Tack, Janne! Thanks Joel. The weathering is exactly what I aimed for when building her based on the few available photos. Have to admit I am quite satisfied with the result. Thanks mate! I am quite sure we'll soon see yeveral of yours!
  22. OK let's start with this build Since the canopy will be closed, I've decided to go with the decals for cockpit. There's also an option to paint the lovely alternate plastic parts, full of tiny details which look really really good. a few pieces of the exhaust waiting to be put together... Simple trick for landing lights - use kitchen aluminum foil to cover the back of the light... ...effect will be like the real thing and better than any paint.

    Thank you Gremlin! Slowly moving towards the finish line! Washes done, landing gear attached, it's time for a final coat of semi-matt and fixing some final details.

    Build an An-124 from Revell in 1:44 - there's more than a hundred little red Xs (no step) to apply on the wings :) Indeed - now that I'm looking at the photos and the model, I can actually spot them... but I am biased as I know where to look :D Thanks! Beautifuly said! Thanks!

    A-6E Intruder

    At least you don't have to glue the fins to the bomb bodies ;) Looking forward to seeing them finished!
