98% finished, clear coat on a few spots and mounting on the display base.  This is a present for a retired AF MSgt.

 

1/144 C9A model

 

Really nice build.   Looks great.  DC-9 is such a cool looking plane.   Had the chance to fly on one going from Elmendorf AFB to Eielson AFB back in the mid 80's.

Love it, love it, love it.

Someone is painting an Edwards F-4 but does not trust the opacity of the white-bordered national insignia on the decal sheet, and thinks he will be better off masking it 🙂


I hope I didn’t offend you or your decal’s opacity.  😀

 

Your decals are fabulous, but I do this for all “white decals over international orange” models after a 1/72 Hasegawa F9F-8 Cougar disaster years ago.

Totally understandable - I am looking forward to seeing more progress photos!

In my humble opinion, the YF-23 is not an attractive aircraft, but you’ve built the best version I have ever seen.  Masterful painting and detail.

already tried it, still bled through.  That International Orange sure is persistent!  
 

 

The Force is strong with International Orange, for sure.

I think it is the line of transition that causes the trouble - the bleed-through wouldn't have been that obvious if the entire insignia sat on an orange area..

 

I will address this on future designs when the insignia sits on a transition like this.

 

In the meantime, please keep sending your excellent build photos. I enjoyed following Paul's YF-23 builds on Britmodeler and I am looking forward to seeing the ongoing FJ-2 and NF-4 projects finished as well.

That is absolutely correct.  The white intake warnings look really good in my opinion.

Fixed it!  I sprayed a bit of white paint over the bottom layer decal, then placed a second decal over the top and was able to disappear that demarcation line.
 

on to the next self-imposed modeling obstacle!  🙂
