    What a nice and clean finish. In the second last photo, it's revealed that the inner side of the opened canopies are unpainted. Just imagine that in black and you wouldn't tell if it's the real thing.
  2. Special Hobby AH-1G Cobra

    The Sea Cobra, "J" is my favorite, a round Cobra but with more power. And more stylized than later Twin engine versions.
  3. Academy 1/48 MiG-29A 'Fulcrum-A'

    Nice build. I like how it is only very slightly weathered.
  4. 1/48 Beechcraft B200 RAAF

    Really liked it. And very neat indeed.
  5. 1/72 A-6A Intruder Fujimi clean build

    Thank you very much Orion. BTW, would anyone know what the booms that extend from the outer pylons are for? Oh, and another question, is it a bad idea to weather a model that has no shading?

    Thanks for the comments!
  7. 1/72 A-6A Intruder Fujimi clean build

    Thanks for the comments guys. I like it just the way it is, too.
  8. This was quite a nice model to build. If you don't know me already, I usually paint my models only one color. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but in this case I think it did. I hope you enjoy. Custom mixed paint and brush painted: The frame was painted without any masking: Gears were a little too greyish. I know some of you might be drooling to weather this one, jajaja.
  9. Tornado when "parked",question on the position of the wings

    The fly-by-wire must have been really confused...

    Hello Motley, I didn't know about the actuator and now I can't help but wonder if this is a standard feature on sweep wing jets.
  11. This is like travelling to the future and watching a History channel archaeological reconstruction of planes. What a detailed kit!
  12. Trumpeter 1:72 MiG-31

    These Trumpeter kits are freakishly detailed. It's madness! Anyway, I will sit back and follow you WIP with much enjoyment as this is a model that I might build someday. Good luck and I'm sure we'll have a miniaturized Foxhound soon!

    Nice job there. And a healthy change from wings and armor I might consider one day.
  14. LEST WE FORGET (Tucano)

    Hello AD210, The kit was an Airfix which said at the bottom right corner, "only 2000 pieces" or something like that; not a rebox unless I'm missing something. And thank you for your comment. It took a while to have the paint job done because I wanted to make sure that the previous coats were dried, almost cured, which is fast for lacquer paints, thankfully. I also did something rather unconsciously, which was to omit small details like antennas and before I knew it, I removed them from the model itself. Sorry about the sacrilege, and I really don't know why I did it. I also used some polishing compound before applying the decals. Imagine how it would look like if i found some clear coat for it...
  15. Hello everyone, Wanting to build a 1/72 Tucano, I couldn't miss the opportunity to buy one when I saw it. It wasn't the Super Tucano I had in mind but it was even better than that, a limited 2000 piece edition of a Tucano commemorative to the British WWI soldiers. The kit was curiously made in India (a first time for me), and it was pretty good with extremely high quality decals. Only detail was that the decals were flat (matt) while the plane has to be painted in gloss. This was funny since decal problems like that are usually the other way around (glossy decals on a matt body)... I know, I know, give it a coat of clear. I will do that as soon as I find it or an equivalent product. Completely painted by brush with gloss black lacquer with no primer or special treatment of any kind, just paint. Had I given it some kind of treatment it would've come out smoother. And finally, nice pictures from my new camera.
