  1. Thanks for the comments everyone! Mark
  2. Thanks for the kind words everyone! Mark
  3. Thanks for the kind feedback everyone! RSAF aircraft are generally well maintained and I’ll admit I got a little carried away with the weathering. However, spotters here have photographed local birds getting rather ratty especially if they’re due for depot-level maintenance so I decided to go that way. In any case, it was good practice in using oils and enamels for weathering. Mark
  4. Hot off my workbench is this 1/48 Tamiya Viper done as a Block 52 of the Republic of Singapore Air Force's 143 Squadron "Phoenix". I used the Thunderbird boxing as the basis for this build. Mainly built out-of-the-box with Fine Molds seatbelts and ScaleNutz decals as the only aftermarket used. To represent a RSAF bird, some details had to be scratch-built including the plate-mounted AIFF antennae, HMCS sensor on the canopy and GPS receiver on the spine. The model was painted primarily with Mr Color lacquers. Weathering was done with a mix of AK Interactive, Ammo by Mig and oil paints. I also played around with some new techniques to give it a more weathered appearance. Loadout depicted is typical for a peacetime intercept mission consisting of 2 AIM-120C AMRAAMs, 2 AIM-9M Sidewinders, 2 370 gallon wing tanks and a AN/AAQ-33 Sniper XR pod on the right cheek station. Hope you enjoy the photos! Mark
  5. Got my copy before the new year. Part of my last purchases of 2022. In Singapore by the way. Mark
  6. First completion in a while. Tamiya's superlative Phantom kit with FineMolds' Nano-Aviation seatbelts. Painted with Mr Hobby lacquers, panel wash with AK Interactive and Ammo by Mig enamels, and weathering with oils. Hope you enjoy the photos. Feedback is most welcome! Mark
  7. Something doesn't look right here. Pretty sure those holes are for the AoA probes. Mark
  8. Good work so far! You might want to reference this build log on ARC on how to deal with the windshield. http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/312213-kinetic-148-fa-18c-vfa-151-in-progress/&do=findComment&comment=2998267 Mark
  9. Nice work so far! However, I believe that the correct colour combination should be Dark Ghost Grey FS36320 for the top and Light Ghost Grey FS36375 for the under fuselage. Mark
  10. Final build of 2021 and part of the BM Tomcat GB is this 1/72 Tomcat from Hasegawa. Built OOB with Mr Color paints and enamels for weathering. Mark
