  1. I have tried the Korean way (without the music): I kinda like it. Cheers, S.
  2. Thanks, but would you happen to know if Mr Paint does? Cheers, S.
  3. Hi, I'm looking for the tints I should use for a MiG 29 9-12 Late (like GWH 4811 kit) in Russian Air Force camouflage. So, any ideas? Cheers, Sebastien
  4. I like the Texan Gordon Ramsay of modelling too. But I've found a silent Korean bloke who did something quite nice with his Sukhoi 33: https://youtu.be/koNEr3CbEBk Cheers, S.
  5. The all-grey Tornadoes are quite low on my list, sorry. And stop hurting yourself, try a nice model of the Tornado for once. Cheers, S.

They got all RAL references. Cheers, S.
  7. Thanks, As it was my first Tonka, I didn't know yet the do's and don't's of this model. Five Tornadoes later, I think I kinda know how to build it now... I don't know yet what the next Tornado will be. GR1 Granby? Norm 83 Luftwaffe ? RSAF original camo? Cheers, S.
  8. Some progress on the aquatic Flanker front. The intakes are painted neutral grey, masked, and get a light grey coat for the lips: And the assemblies are glued to the fuselage bottom. Spoiler alert: the fit is poor. Next in line are the nozzles. I followed the method used in this video: Keep the sound low if you value your sanity... Masking the petals was a bit of a chore. But the result was worth the pain. The nozzles diameter is quite different from the fuselage's, and I decided that I didn't give a damn. But I like the burnt metal effect. Next: the HUD, the windscreen and off to the paintshop we go. Cheers, S.
  9. I just spelt the proper way to build a Revell Tornado without using a langage liable to damage one's karma enough to come back as a dung beetle.
  10. I hope you don't mind if I strongly disagree with you. Building Revell Tornado is more aikido than MMA, and if you ignore the instructions the right way, you'll get something rather nice quite easily. Cheers, S.
  11. Nope, but you'll admit it was a bit beyond salvation... I asked Revell for a new nose. The problem is the fumes have nowhere to go but through the plastic. I'd ask Kinetic for one, but you might drill a hole in the nose to let the fumes vent, wait quite a bit, and then putty it back to shape (Milliput might work better than usual putty). If you don't, it will stay soft for a long time (and you light see new holes appear in the weeks to come). S., really sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
  12. Hi, I'm afraid that's entirely normal. The glue fumes are quite a potent solvent and are attacking the plastic from the inside. It's going to stay that way quite a bit. Don't ask me how I know that... Cheers, S.
  13. One entertaining quirk of Revell's GR4 is it has the IDS plastic cockpit parts and GR4 cockpit decals... S.
  14. And minus the laser rangefinder glass. S.
