  1. Thanks again to all of you! Don't know about the others, but I couldn't wait to start the painting process. I like models a lot, but I find building them to be pure stress. Have one more model i'm trying to get done (Spaceshuttle 1/72 with Homer's wonderful 3d parts from Shapeways) and then i will focus on sculpting again. But i will always have a soft spot for models, thats for sure :)
  2. Thats a very nice phantom if you ask me
  3. Whole lotta love in this old kit and it shows!
  4. Wonderful work! The pit alone is stunning!
  5. I like that model too! Nice touch with the mags :)
  6. Thank you all very much! I`m really not good with patience or finesse with my fingers, but i can never ever give up and made almost everything at least twice to get this model done! Thats the benefit of acrylic paints: some isopropyl alcohol and back to step one. Except you take the wrong bottle filled with acetone, but thats another story...
  7. The Cockpit Quintas Kit is not a perfect match, but better than my hand painting any day Its far from being accurate, but i like the look in the finished model
  8. Hi Modellers My F-14 Tamiya in 48 scale Managed to squeeze an Eduard Cockpit fitted with Quintadecals into it. Eduards Cockpit is not meant to be built into a closed model, thats for sure. Alpha probe and camera underneath the nose aftermarket, exhaust a mix from reskit and KA models. Decals a mix of furball and modelkasten and homemade (because i f... up) Paints Gunze, Tamiya and Oils from various art material suppliers. Took me a looong time and since this wish started in 1995 i kept the Jolly Rogers theme. But in all grey as i am myself now. Thanks for watching.
  9. Impossible to make that thing better! Really stunning!
  10. Very nice! Be careful with white spirit and turpentine Bandais plastic doesn`t like it...
  11. Wonderful work, the colors, the shapes, everything!!
  12. Your surfaces look quite coarse, is it the model or paint drying on its way to the model? Or dust?
  13. Paint lifting is very, very frustrating. The best primer, without doubt, that i`ve used so far is Stylnyrez. IF you can shoot it through your AB and if you really made your home work degreasing the resin, it stays put. It withstand Gaffer tape, couldn`t believe it. Misting: Dilute it like normal, milky, and use some distance and a bit more pressure..painting is sometimes also very frustrating, but since you used Tamiyas acrylics, just wipe everything off with isopropyl alcohol if you`re not happy.
