  1. Thank you very much guys! it is very appreciated and motivating! Thanks Serkan, Yes, during Operation Harmattan, Mirage 2000-5 shared RPL541/542 tanks with Mirage 2000N, which are camouflaged. https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/7169489 2000-5 is painted with AKRC 235 and 252, but with a drop of X14 sky blue in each. 2000D green is a mix of H65 H420 and H2, grey blue is H42+H331+H2.
  2. Thank you very very much! Scarlet, for this detail, kudos to Grandmodels and their exquisite resin seats with molded straps
  3. Thank you guys. After 2 years of hard work, feedback I very appreciated
  4. Hello The last 2 years, I was busy with this quite demanding project. And now I am pretty happy to finally share the result . I built side by side two Kittyhawk boxings, both in French Markings: a Mirage 2000-5F during Operation Harmattan (Lybia) in 2011, and a 2000D from Operation Chammal (Iraq/Syria) in 2015. The builds were far from "From the box" so to say... Kittyhawk... well is Kittyhawk you know. Interesting subject, quite nice details, but mistakes, lacks, or incomplete intructions. So I had to provide a lot of work to bring the models to the higher standard they deserve. It was mainly done with the help of 3D printing. Non exhaustive list of addons: - Exhaust: Reskit - Cockpit -5: Renaissance - Cockpit 2000D: 3D+Quinta - Seats: Grandmodels - Wing Tanks RPL541 542: FFSMC - PE parts: Eduard - Wheels: 3D - RPL522 ventral tank: 3D - Missiles & Pylones: 3D - GUB24: 3D - Decals: Uprise et FFSMC - Figures: Reedoak The Mirage 2000-5F: And the Mirage 2000D: The full WIP is detailed in 80 pages of french Cocardes magazine, with English captions. You can order it on their website. Hope you like them! Regards Romain
  5. Hi guys Of course i did not want to hurt anyone. And honnestly did not think of the "child" thing as se obviously is an adult in the sculpture. But I understand it can be seen as distateful. Have a nice day Romain
  6. Thanks Bertie. I understand for the figure itself. But more distateful digital sculpture do exist. Kind of nsfw..
  7. Very nice! Curious to know the Mr hobby paints you used. Bye
  8. Hi, Another figure printed at home on my Sonic mini4K. Model from stepanovsculpts, bought on cgtrader. Brush painted with acrylics. Still some techniques to improve, but my friend who got this as a birthday present was pretty happy, so am I. Bye!
  9. Hello Something different, and out of my comfort zone. A bust printed on Sonic mini 4K. Black primer overall, armor parts polished with fine abrasive sponge then sprayed with alclad chrome, then buffed. Clothes are sprayed with white from above to enlight edges. Then painted with water based acrylics (mostly Vallejo/prince august) This is the way! Romain
  10. Thank you so much guys! Really appreciated
  11. Thanks guys!! Carlos, 218 is sprayed right onto the plastic. It turned to be that is was a fragile coat as it can disolve easily with enamel thinner. Cheers !
  12. Thank you all! Ct, thanks for feedback. I like taking pics with both black and white background. For this one I would prefer black. And with white, the nose and vertical stab tip are merging with background. Bye
  13. Hello I built this nice little kit last year. I found it very detailed, and despite complex assembly, fitting was pretty good. I added Microdisign PE, and canopy explosive cords from Quinta. Painted with AKREAL 247+239 for light blue ,236 for blue and249+239+a drop of purple for the grey. Weathering with oil, flat varnish from VMS. Bye Romain
  14. Thank you guys Yes, you are totaly right!
  15. Thank you guys! Bill, im sorry but I cant recall the ratios. As you can see by the number of paints used, it was kind of rocket science to find the right tone
  16. thank you! as for the chipping, the whole model is primed with mr hobby 218, wich gives weak adhesion for paints applied on it. then the dark sea blue is painted, and after drying, chipped with toothpick and blade.
  17. Hello Here is a build done in early 2020. Hasegawa F4U-7 Aires Cockpit Aires engine Pavla control surfaces Obsureco wheels Brassin HVAR and bomb Adecco decal The model depicts a plane during 1956 Suez Canal crisis. Some sources say that this actual airframe had only yellow stripes wihtout black ones. Aires cockpit needs some added details to depict a -7 such as armrests, and armament control boxes on each sides of the gunsight. Paint is AKREAL COLORS RC258 Dark sea blue, tuned with MrHobby C375 and a drop of H5. Hope you like it! Critiques and comments welcomed! Romain
