  1. Oops guess I should have done some research. I just thought it looked terrible. Oh well live and learn for the next one.
  2. Thanks Pete. I used Alclad II Duraluminium for the fuselage. Alclad II Aluminium for the wings and Alclad II White Aluminium for the highlighted panels. I used no primer and I had zero liftoff when masking. I used to use Testor's Metalizer but it's too fragile. However the metalizers work well with brush painting. Alclad II not so much. I noticed that most examples have the highlighted panels darker but I decided to go lighter. I was happy with the contrast
  3. Brush painting you say Amazing build. Those figures are fantastic!
  4. Thanks Joacim. Didn't know that. It would've made the decal on the wing a lot less burdensome
  5. Great build other than a couple of issues. I didn't like the big slot for sliding the canopy so I filled that in. The 2 piece bubble canopy was kinda a pain and as usual I had trouble with the decals lifting.....even after multiple applications of microsol. Any suggestions for the decals would be appreciated.

  6. Thank you Not now. I'll be looking forward to your take on it. Other than the decals I had zero issues
  7. Great Job. I've never seen this plane before, and you've created a beautiful reference model
  8. Thanks Guys! This is what I was shooting for. IMG_1687 by Robert Pederson, on Flickr Note to self. When cutting all those little pieces out do so in some form of container with a raised lip. Might be slightly easier than picking up small white paper bits
  9. Absolutely Fantastic work. For some reason after viewing I had an urge to go on a picnic.
  10. Like all Tamiya's that I have built, this one went together like a dream. I used the supplied mask template and cut the markings out using a fine ballpoint pen against a metal plate. Tedious but more true. IMG_1695 by Robert Pederson, on Flickr IMG_1699 by Robert Pederson, on Flickr IMG_1698 by Robert Pederson, on Flickr IMG_1701 by Robert Pederson, on Flickr
  11. Great build with a different scheme.....Thanks for sharing
  12. What an amazing built! It’s absolutely fantastic. Just the canopy masking would give me nightmares for a month
  13. Beautiful build with and interesting scheme. The exhaust staining and weathering look fantastic. Thanks for sharing!
