  1. Thanks all. I'm actually contemplating painting the uppers dark ghost grey and the rest light ghost grey. As said, with heavy weathering and fading, all the tones effectively seem to step down one. I will have a play
  2. Hi all, Hoping someone with more knowledge on the topic than me can chip in. I'm building the Tamiya 1:48 F-14A and want to build it in the low vis TPS scheme. I've finally decided on the scheme from VF-32 Swordsman, when a pair of Mig 23 were shot down in a January 1989. Furball call for FS35237 Medium Grey over FS36320 Dark a ghost grey, without any Light ghost on the undersides. Now, FS35237 looks WAAAY too blue to my ref pics. Would I be better going dark ghost over light ghost?
  3. Nah, that would have been Mr William's build he built concurrently with mine..... I finished mine first though Good taste though
  4. Thanks for the comments all. It definitely stands out in the collection
  5. Xtradecal decals John, but they were awful to work with unfortunately!
  6. Hi, I finished this one a couple of weeks back. Finally got her into the photo booth. Xtradecals leave a lot to be desired, with mis numbering, brittleness etc to deal with, but gentle coaxing with X-20A did the trick... 1:48 Airfix meteor F8 NEW TOOL Paints used: Gunze Light Aircraft Grey, Tamiya XF-3 Flat yellow, XF-69 NATO Black Extras: Pavla Mk 4 Seat, Albion Alloys telescopic Aluminium tube for Pitot Decals: Xtradecal X48160 Cheers Chris
  7. Perhaps image 13 over on UKAR of a typhoon coded GS yesterday gives a hint...... http://forums.airshows.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=72136
  8. I bought directly from Akan recently to get the SU33 set, as everyone else around the world was out of stock. Alex was a fantastic help, paints arrived in under a week, and cheaper than elsewhere too You need to use google translate, but it worked great. I believe he sells individual pots too. (Ask to use PayPal, as site options are for Russia only) http://shop.akan.ru
  9. Tamiya XF 83 Medium sea grey. The radome is Tamiya dark sea grey lightened with a touch of white. Friction are areas at the wing roots is a custom mix of msg and white with some sky grey too. Pitfalls, build the rear section in its entirety before attaching the nose. The worst part is getting the outside faces of the intakes to align. Test fitting and adjusting before committing to glue is the order of the day.
  10. So, I've been wanting to build aircraft from 617 for sometime, but have been waiting patiently for the new Revell release of the GR4. Kit is a marked improvement on the Italeri and Hobbyboss kits. Only replacements were the seats, the WSO's MFD's and the wheels. Little cars lens added to the chin pod, and decals from Xtradecal. Painted with a mix of Tamiya, AK Xtreme metals. The Lancaster is the 1:72 model from Airfix. A surprisingly awkward build with a number of warped parts. Fuselage windows were filled, bomb bay doors replaced with the bulged offering form Freightdog, to accommodate the Tallboy modifications. Decals from xtradecal to get a decent shade of red, and the nose art from the Kits world series.
  11. Windolene or anything with a hint of ammonia in it will lift the aqua gloss and Vallejo. It's pretty much just Klear floor polish anyway. I always tint on the inside using thin Tamiya clear paints. That way you are left with a glossy external finish.
  12. I find a fine pin wash with paynes grey oil works a treat. Just to highlight the panel lines and tie in the decals...
  13. Maybe a good clue from SP?
