  1. Good morning gents. Wow, I must admit I didn't expect such positive reactions. Thank you all. Thanks John. I thought I might add here, in form of a reminder to myself, that I should probably start painting the large white areas instead of just applying decals. Antti did it in his own build and I knew there was going to be a problem, but I was an idiot and went on with the decals directly. Stupid decision that I regret, but can't do much about now. The problems are mostly visible on the fin. Apart from that, if you have Airfix's kit in your stash, I strongly
  2. Thanks a lot mate, very kind of you. I am really glad that you like it. I have to like your post for the vote of confidence you gave me. Weird that you can't see the photos, I never knew that imgbb had any issues. Do you want to try this link? It's a link to the entire album with all the photos of the build: https://ibb.co/album/hsZJgC Thanks a lot Antti. You're very kind, as always. Yeah, it's nice with a movable canopy for a change. Maybe I should lubricate the rails to make the movement easier?
  3. @Lord Riot, @SAT69, @Tiger331 and @Dstream thanks lads. I appreciate your comments and I am glad you like it. Lord Riot, I've seen your Jag, she's a beauty already and from a much inferior kit. I'm sure it will turn out great. One thing I've learnt the recent years is to draw inspiration and knowledge from others, but only compare myself to... myself, what I used to be, what I used to know, what I used to do. It makes perfect sense to try to get better than you are/used to be, but it's counterproductive to try to catch others. At least this is what I tell myself, whe
  4. Now this is a brilliant Intruder!!! Battered and filthy as it should be! Beautiful effects on the weathering there and the cockpit is simply delicious! Well done, excellent!!!
  5. What a beautiful model. Great building skills, resulting in a crisp and clean result, impeccable I'd say. Thanks for sharing this inspiring model.
  6. Greetings. I just uploaded the RFI thread, and I am adding one last photo here, of the bang seats, because they aren't so easy to see once placed in the cockpit. And here is the RFI post: Thank you all lads. And especially you @Antti_K
  7. You can't say I rushed this one... It took almost 6 months to complete, but I have to say, I enjoyed every second of buidling and painting this kit. Before I show the photos, I want to thank @Antti_K for his help, advice and encouragement throughout this build. Unfortunately I wasn't able to live up to the standards of his build, I am not at that level. But all things considered, I am quite pleased. Ok, enough of that. Let's get to the photos. Starting upside down: Then making her stand on her feet: And in the
  8. @Antti_K Thank you Antti, once again, your complements mean so much, considering that your build has been my guide. The canopy is movable. I've attached the clear parts on the frame and made it able to slide back and forth, once put on the plane. The fit when it's closed is not perfect, but it works ok. I'll post some pictures with closed canopy in the RFI section, maybe tomorrow. @Dstream Thank you for your kind compliments Dan. I did manage to improve the windshield quite a bit, using a fine brush with a little bit of Future. This stuff is miraculous. Haha.
  9. The Jaguar is a very charming plane, that I hope I will get the chance to build one day. I am not familiar with Airfix's kit, but you're doing a great job improving it so far and I look forward to seeing how it will develop. I'll be following your WIP, if it's ok with you.
  10. Thanks a lot @Lord Riot, I am very glad that you like it and it means a lot to receive such a positive reaction. :) I hope the final result will satisfy you even more. I can say that it has been a very pleasant build. Airfix has done a great work with this kit.
  11. Good evening. I am back with an update. All the painting is done, decals are in place and panel line wash is applied. Even a matt varnish is in place now. I had some hard time with the decals, primarily the roundels and the vertical stabiliser flag. I really NEED to stop being lazy and start painting the large decals if they have simple shapes like circles and rectangles. Mental note, for the next time. You'll also notice some tiny silver dots. Honestly, I have no idea where they come from. I'll try to hide them with some more weathering. Oh, and the port-side p
  12. Beautiful build! Looks like the same kit as the KP I built some months ago, only difference is that you did a much better job than I did. Super nice weathering too!
  13. Thank you Chris, very kind of you mate. I hope the completion isn't far now. :)
  14. Thanks Alan. I was almost forced to choose Gunze because I cannot, for the life of me, spray Humbrol with neither of my double-action airbrushes. I have no idea why, it's simply impossible, unless I spray very wide, but then I don't have any control of the result. I honestly start to believe that the batches that are sent to Sweden have somewhat altered formula. Anyhow, Gunze paints are amazing, their behaviour is always consistent, they create a very smooth surface and I also love their smell (very essential modelling criteria, haha). And I hope they are somewhat close to the actual
  15. Morning champs. I've been quite busy with my master's lately, which has also affected my updates. But I am finally here with a rather good one. I masked the green areas (GS H330) and sprayed the grey (GS H331) on 4 thin coats: One directly from the bottle, one quite faded with almost 40% white, one basic again but only over the panel lines and last a myst coat over the entire model. The picture shows the result after the first basic coat: And after I unmasked: Unfortunately, the masks didn't go without a fight:
