  1. It'll sort itself out next time I move it-they're Friulmodel tracks
  2. I'm too old for that newfangled stuff. I just use Model Master and a brush/airbrush.
  3. Had it on my want list and they were re-released May of last year so I picked up 2 for under $24 each.
  4. With Phase Hanger Fuel tank and seat, AOA decals
  5. Polished aluminum and high shine aluminum. Before I painted it I masked off select panels and cut out tape masks. These masks were placed on the decal paper protective sheet. U applied and polished the Alclad black base and applied the masks. I painted Polished aluminum to within 1 final coat-removed the masks and applied 1-2 final coats ( this isn't a perfected art). This is what gave me the darker panels, albeit not quite as many as I would have liked as some of the masks pulled up.
  6. Alclad paint with Xtradecals markings for 23 Squadron. Some Airwaves pe was used as was a resin seat.
  7. Once the missiles are on I'll move it over to the finished section From the Airwaves set.
  8. As many have said before it depends on the undercoat. In this case I used Alclad gloss black base thinned, applies as glossy a coat as I could then, when dry, buffed it out with Novus #2 plastic polish. Applying the alclad metal in 1 mist coat and 1 covering coat (it took a whole bottle of polished aluminum to cover this beast) it has a shine but it is enhanced with a good buffing. It doesn't take much buffing at all.
  9. I don't normally post WIP photos but I figured I'd better before the Airfix data decals hit this nice finish.
  10. ICM 48282, They call it a "B" but I can't find the difference
  11. Yes Roman, Hi shine aluminum plus, polished aluminum and airframe aluminum
