  1. That’s Vallejo water based putty, smoothed out with a damp finger and a quick blast of Tamiya acrylic gloss white thanks!
  2. Out of the box with decals from a CL-215 with the reg. changed from C-FAFO to C-FAFQ as always, striving for mediocrity Thanks for looking
  3. Done! Nowhere near perfect but that's the way I roll... I should put these on RFI I guess.
  4. True, before I primed and painted the model i could see the yellow plastic glowing in the dark across the hall from the bedroom at night.
  5. I have added most of the decals I'm going to use, to be honest the Revell kit decals are junk! they're out of register and made of... cardboard. I struggled my way through getting some in place but the multi colored ones failed me and almost got the whole project pitched into the garbage. A walk away and a cup of coffee sorted out the mood and I pulled off the Revell decals, masked and painted the important ones (others will be left off) the Heller Saskatchewan decals given me by a friend who wasn't using them worked perfectly. Rant over back to building
  6. Good progress! Well done. Will be nice to see it come together when I worked at the local airport here there were about 20 F 28’s next door for many years, the last few years there’s been a loader and digger destroying them all (“Canadian Regional” surplus I guess) I doubt any of them were still airworthy by their appearance. pulling up a chair for the build.
  7. THATS AWESOME!! and the minute you put on the final pieces and set it in the display cabinet the Kinetic one will become available...well I’m still hoping anyway, there’s no way I could do what you’ve done to get as good a C 17 from this kit
  8. It's a bit of a mundane topic compared to the fighters and jets on here...but it's progressing. I used a ton of masking tape and had a devil of a time getting that tape to stay down with all the rivets (A smarter man would have sanded them off) Thanks for looking
  9. I sprayed the model with Tamiya fine white surface primer (rattle can) then acrylic white and finally with Tamiya lacquer gloss white, much masking to do yet to get the green stripes on the engines etc. as well as remove a seam on the nose before the flat black goes on. Thanks for looking
  10. moving along at a fair pace; some of the tons of filler...not after sanding Thanks for looking
  11. Started a day or two ago and, in progress; Thanks for looking
  12. coming along nicely already! By the way that vac. kit isn't ugly...not even close...that kit is looking at ugly in the rear view mirror, ugly is a long ways behind it! This looks like a great kit! I may have to hunt one down. Someday.
  13. Thanks very much guys! oddly enough I didn’t see the paint creep until after I posted the pics! Since it’s acrylic green over lacquer white I buffed it away with Tamiya polishing compound on a Qtip, sharp eye there! Thanks!!
