    Thanks Duncan. No major issues with the build. Just need a bit of caution putting the top and bottom fuselage halves together. If there was a major problem, it was the main canopy. Mine had such a bad seam, on the top, even after sanding, polishing, and dipping in Klear, you could still see it through the depth of the plastic. I did manage to source a replacement, which again had a seam, but once worked on, was absolutely fine.

    Hataka’s early formula Red Line were a problem. Something they recognised, and changed the formulation. At the time, they even offered free exchanges to those who had bought the early sets. Give the newer ones a go. Thin them out to about 50:50, paint to Hataka acrylic thinner, and build the colour up with several light coats.

    Thanks. Yes, the Orange Line are lacquer paints.

    Thank you. The pilot figures are made by Five Star Models. I bought mine through eBay. http://www.fstarmodel.com/pr.jsp?_pp=0_304_73_-1

    Cheers Malcolm. Were these earlier Hataka paints, you tried, their Red Line acrylics?

    Thank you. I used a dark grey Mig wash. Really good stuff. E5EEC3AA-8230-4895-84F3-E65595D720EF by ian gaskell, on Flickr

    Thank you Alan Yes very happy with the paints. Hataka are my go to paints, these days. I buy them direct, as I can then get single bottles too.

    Some subtle weathering done, and sealed with a couple of matt coats. Missiles are also attached. Now into the home stretch. fullsizeoutput_d1f by ian gaskell, on Flickr fullsizeoutput_d20 by ian gaskell, on Flickr fullsizeoutput_d21 by ian gaskell, on Flickr fullsizeoutput_d1d by ian gaskell, on Flickr fullsizeoutput_d1e by ian gaskell, on Flickr

    Thank you. I’m very tempted to get another Su-30 to build one of the Vietnamese schemes, from the decal set.

    Decals done, then sealed with a gloss coat. Followed with a Mig panel wash, and some AK Fuel and Oil staining. 5A255B97-E17B-475C-8002-9A34704029A5 by ian gaskell, on Flickr E1715112-1F75-4919-BA1D-3AA272F0B454 by ian gaskell, on Flickr E5EEC3AA-8230-4895-84F3-E65595D720EF by ian gaskell, on Flickr 93733C19-7BB4-4627-9A2F-D1E23E349685 by ian gaskell, on Flickr 00DB5EAA-D8FA-445F-9268-74BB029A0173 by ian gaskell, on Flickr EC94C170-5480-44B1-9AC8-7A914382BF0C by ian gaskell, on Flickr

    I’ve seen that method used, and it does work. I’m tempted to give it a try sometime.

    Hi Alex My decals look ok. They are a bit on the thick side, though, so I used plenty of Micro Sol.
