Tony Oliver posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - AircraftLast one (promise) from the Christmas WIP... I did quite alot in three weeks off. Well not much apart from messing about with plastic... This one was bought for an experiment from Mikemx at mjw models. As I already had the hataka USN paint set for the tomcat saga, and I wanted to try out the blue that came in it. (Incidentally the orange in that set was used on the Bell X-1, See my other RFI) This has now turned me into a hellcat fanatic and now have several more in 72nd... After taking all the pics I noticed in them that the antenna mast had been pulled back by the ez line. Thats since been sorted, as I managed to pull it out rather than snap it off, which would have made it almost impossible to re-attach strongly. Anyways, weekend edition OOB including decal seatbelts (fine through closed canopy) Just some added ez line and stretched sprue. Paint was hataka for all the main colours - blue/white/black and yellow tips. I tried gunze self levelling thinner with them after reading about that somewhere else. And it worked very well for thin coats to fade the blue. Interior and tires by Mr Color, Engine and drop tank in Ak extreme metals aluminium. Exhaust stain airbrushed and gun barrel streaks are pigments. Full details in here - Here it is with the sorted mast (this afternoon) And here are all the ones from yesterday (note wonky mast!) Thanks for looking!
