  1. Hi Ken, That plane is actually on the Begemot sheet... You can see it on their website... My link They talk about Flat medium grey FS 26424. I think Akan has a wide range of accurate colors, but I don't know if they have that one though... Hope it helps you to get there... cheers, Mark
  2. I have the F-4Dable sheet 72-001... Real nice... decals for Swiss and Finnish too!
  3. Truly awesome build so far! I'm going all cross-eyed while looking at those fibers! One day perhaps... cheers Mark
  4. ... some more pictures... That limit again... :)/> That was it guys, thanks again! cheers, Mark
  5. Allright! I 'm done! Besides the days at the office I needed one more day it seems... :)/>/>/> Here ere the results... I weathered it with Flory Models wash as stated and gave it a semi matt varnish coat from AKAN. Had some trouble thinning it at first, but after a clean up of my airbrush I managed to get it working great...
  6. Great builds everyone and some great references for me too! I'm sorry I didn't finish it in time, but still for me it was a very useful entry. I didn't know about the group build until Sebastijan commented in another build and that made me enthusiastic. I still learned from it being my first build other than a (Russian) helo or jet. I look forward to building more of these, and perhaps I'll join a next group build sooner. I'll certainly look more often in that corner of the forum! :) Thanks everybody, Mark
  7. Hey guys! Sorry, I didn't make it in time... I guess I was too optimistic. I had a bit of bad luck also because I let one laser shoot off the sprue and it was missing for half a day. I needed that fixed before painting. But no excuses, I'm too late! Here is where I am at now... I masked the solar panels before painting the body... I painted the body with the next gunze colours, 7 parts of the gray, 3 parts white and one part blue-gray... This is what you get after. It consists of multiple coats of the gray mixture, some dark patches, covered with bleached coats of the gray mixture an
  8. Awesome pictures! Thanks for sharing!
  9. Indeed that is good stuff Sebastijan! I see what you did on the panels and they come out great! I like your stands better then the stand they put in the Bandai box... Weekend now, time to start finishing mine... gotta anticipate on the drying times I guess :)
  10. I taped off the solar panels just to try something out other then just black. I misted some coats of matt black, chocolat brown (very much thinned), metallic blue green (again very thinned), clear blue smoke, silver (yep... thinned a lot), smoke, some very thinned black and a gloss coat on them and that specific order, just to try to get some shiny panels I saw in the movie. I print screened some clips from youtube where I saw them again :)/>/> Now I don't think the picture shows it right, but in realtime it sure has some bling! I like it! On with some taping and painting... I
  11. Hello people, I'm Mark from the Netherlands, and I read a lot on the forums here... I don't post that much though... I'm a loyal 1:72 jet and helicopter builder but when I noticed those new Bandai Star Wars kits comming out I couldn't help getting one. After opening the box I pre-ordered every single one of them :)/>/>/>/> Anyway I saw a new style TIE by Aigore which I liked a lot and saw Sebastijan mention the Star Wars group build... I started my TIE Advanced a week or so ago and one and one makes three doesn't it.. Only thing is the group build ends monday, so I'll have to m
  12. Great! That means I can spend monday too? That happens to be my day off, I might need it... :)/> I'll give it a go then...
  13. Hello people! I saw a finished build of a new style TIE fighter in the display case of the aircraft forum (Good stuff Aigore!!) and saw Sebastijan mentioning a Star Wars group build. Apparently it almost ends but I just started last week with a Bandai TIE Advanced x1. It's my first Sci-Fi / anything other than aircraft build. Is it too late for me to join? I only have a few pictures of the building process, and I'm into painting the exterior as we speak... Will that do? cheers, Mark
  14. Great work Ryan! You build a little faster then I do... :) I haven't done anything since the last photo's... I notice a little difference between the kit you use and the kit I use, namely the blob on the underside between the fin and the back of the main wings. Do you know what that is? I need to do more homework I guess :) Nice accomplishment and a great addition to any MiG collection! cheers, Mark
  15. That is good stuff... What kit are you building? Mine are the Fujimi ones. I know they have issues, but they build really nice and have good detail... I use them as a pilot for my R.V. stash... they really look good, but might be a bit more tricky to build. I guess I'll find out in a while...
