  1. After finishing the decals, I sprayed another layer of clear coat, then it's time to weathering the stuff. The port side is weathered with oil paint, while the starboard isn't. 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr Thank you.
  2. Keep on painting and shading. 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr Thank you
  3. I used acrylic panit for that, enamel can do the same thing.
  4. Some little progress... Since the wheels from Truescale, which are great, have low pressure that the real aircraft won't have on board the carrier, I have to redo the wheels from Reskit. And I finished some post shading on the main frame. Thank you for watching
  5. Hi Mike, In that case, pick up 7206, which can be built as 70's A. 7203 can only be built as a early-mid D, since no BOL or any ground weapons provided.
  6. Thank you guys, just a bit little more progress... 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 無標題 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr Thank you~
  7. With some additional painting, weathering and decaling, now I could finally glue the fwd fuselage together. 20191223103858 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191223103915 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191223103923 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191223103938 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191223103945 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr
  8. Thank you guys, just some very tiny progress coloring the fabric IP covers. 20191218102619 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191218102633 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191218102640 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr Thank you
  9. Thank you Steve. Continue with the tub 20191120093618 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191120093104 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191120093129 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191120093159 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr
  10. Also I made a custom LAU-138 BOL pylon from the Hasegawa kit and casted some resin parts. But I'm quite sure that GWH will release another kit with the BOL, just can't wait till then. 20191115175715 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115175724 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115180315 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115180301 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115180339 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115175029 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115175036 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr Spent couple of days to paint the seats 20191115175106 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr
  11. Some updates... 20191115174930 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115175022 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115174959 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115175007 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115175014 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115175044 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115175051 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115175058 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20191115175708 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr
  12. very small amount LOCTITE 460 a tiny drop of super glue
  13. Thank you guys for your kind replies. Now I'm moving on to the LANTIRN pod and the adapter. I've the HASEGAWA pod also I've the one from Academy's new F-15E, at the first glance, A's detail is better than H's, but A's shape of the intake for cooling is off. To me it's much easier to add some rivets than to correct the shape, So I chose H's. 微信图片_20190829143802 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr I cut the pod front and rear part half to make some pivot regarding some ref pics. 微信图片_20190829143758 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 微信图片_20190829143736 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr Not like the 15s or the 16s, the pod hangs just below the wind root, it's too obvious to see if there are no vents at the very back of it, so I decided to add them. The rectangle one is 2mm*3mm 20190906112413 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr I used 2 different size of grills, 0.3mm and 0.5mm. Since there might be two layers on the real thing. 20190906112406 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20190906112409 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20190906112416 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr The 0.5mm was put in the lower layer. 20190906112420 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr Then the 0.3mm on the upper layer. 20190906112434 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr The other one is a rounded vent just below the intake. 20190906112438 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr I used the punch to cut a 2mm grill of the 0.3mm net sheet. 20190906112442 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20190906112446 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr Well, the grills are of course off-size in 72nd scale, but adding those will increase the visual detailing of the model. 20190906112450 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr
  14. Now I move to the cockpit and canopy again, spending hours focusing on the safety belt of the seats. Aires really made some wonderful photo-etched parts for them, but bending the cooper material part really took a lot of time to achieve the proper final look. 微信图片_20190829143904 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 微信图片_20190829143900 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 微信图片_20190829143858 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr Now it's the mirrors. Actually I have to remove the center mirror for the pilot, because the huge HUD added on, the handler for the pilot should be moved to the canopy from the original position on the wind-shield. I'll do that later... 微信图片_20190829143849 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 微信图片_20190829143851 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr I rebuilt the cooling pipes on the frame. 微信图片_20190829143833 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 微信图片_20190829143836 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr Dealing with the fitting of Aires resin cockpit and kit canopy, especially the rear IP cover which had the most fitting problems, spent couples of nights for me. but the result is OK to me. 微信图片_20190829143808 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 微信图片_20190829143826 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 微信图片_20190829143819 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 微信图片_20190829143822 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr
  15. Some progress. Since I decided making a small diorama that the aircraft is parking on the deck, I added some tie-down points onto the landing gears. 20190806154508 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20190806154518 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 20190806154526 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr And when at the front line, the cover of ARP often removed from the aircraft. 20190806154608 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr Also I spent some hours to build the boarding ladder, but in the end, I decided not using it... 微信图片_20190829143915 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr 微信图片_20190829143920 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr And some little work on the tail hook. 微信图片_20190829143907 by Brent Jin, 於 Flickr
