1/48 Trumpeter F-100D

Recommended Posts

This is one of my four current builds, the Trumpeter F-100D. I plan on building this OOB, but we will see what happens. 

 

 Not much done right now, just some painting in the cockpit.

I have managed to get some work done on this. The cockpit is all done, and I have the fuselage halves glued together. I made the seatbelts out of Tamiya tape.

Yeah. I find it the easiest way. If i need to handle it i can grab it by the toothpick and get all the little nooks and crannies. Its also a great way to keep track of parts when i am getting then ready for paint.

One round of putty and sand is complete, and I should have primer on this soon to see what else I need to do. Everything fits pretty well, just needs a bit of work around the nose to clean things up.

Some minor progress. I have the canopies masked, and I am just doing some minor sanding before I prime.

Some progress. I have the lower gray painted and I have started the lighter green. Just need to do some highlights and then it can sit for a while till the next colour. 

 

These pics just show primer, no pics of the paint progress yet.

Looking good Sean. Any idea what kind of markings it’s going to be sporting?

I built the F version of this kit some time ago and found it a pleasant build. I did buy a resin nose and a Eduard cockpit set, but otherwise it was a straightforward build. I love the F-100, and I shall follow your build with interest . . . looking good so far.  :thumbsup2:

PAINT!!!!!

 

 Managed to buckle down and get this painted. few issues here and there, but It should work. As of now, i have the metal area and the gear bays painted. All I have left is aluminium parts (gears, bay doors, intake, wheel hubs...) and then it will be ready for decals.

Work has been progressing on this. I have the decals done and I have been adding most of the landing gear and doors and what not in preparation for a flat coat.

 

 Here are some pics of the paint and decaling.

Sean,

  Just managed to catch up on your build. Your camo paint scheme really turned out quite well as the color modulation really comes through in a realistic maner, rather then every color just being a perfect monotone. The engine area's NMF with the burned & Oxide colorization really came out quite nicely. 

 

  Looking forward to your next update.

Joel

I always liked that aircraft, nice build progress! Makes me want to get one. So many subjects, so little time.
