Kitty Hawk 1/48 Lockheed F-94C Starfire

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Here's my latest built: Kitty Hawk's 1/48 Lockheed F-94C Starfire in Caracal decals. The finish is Bare Metal Foil and Mr Color paint. The nose and wingtip tanks are Uschi van der Rosten polishing powder over Mr Color gloss black. It's my second attempt at foiling, and better than the first, but still means a lot of compromises. An extensive build article detailing the kit and my faults is here: https://jonbryon.com/kitty-hawk-1-48-lockheed-f-94c-starfire/

 

Comments welcome.

 

Thanks for looking

 

Jon

Indeed, it is a little too bright! But then the original was pretty bright too 🙂

Very nice! Bright and shiny was the way they were back then. Crew chief did it all! Especially like the arctic red around the wings and tail.

Very impressive build of a difficult scheme.

The minor flaws you point out in your article are minor. I barley noticed before reading it and dismissed them due to the difficulty of the scheme.

If I had a critique it might be this. I think it could have been even brighter! But it does look great as-is. :thumbsup2:

Thanks Zactoman. I do enjoy looking at it on the shelf!

Great job- anyone who can get these results with foil is an all-star in my book!
