    Bruce Thanks and I hope you get back to the models soon . While I wait patiently to put all the stencils ahead the doors and the landing gear. I also completed the extra deposit and the air intake that I had forgotten. Regatds alcmac

    Thanks Jackman. Painting the Hinomarus was a risk I did not like but it did not look bad after all. And after having applied the gloss clear and started to apply the decals appeared these red lines to put on the wings (decals 27 and 28). Done. Regards ajcmac

    And finally I decided and painted the Hinomaru (I suppose that's what they call themselves and what's written). Following is Alclad clear gloss. Regards ajcmac

    After applying the maskol, I painted the green. I applied the lights and shadows and removed the maskol with the aid of masking tape. I thought I might have gone further but the fear of overdoing it ... Regards ajcmac

    Thanks Bungalow_Bill . Lack of material to be able to advance but it has already arrived. The Maskol and the 2m / m set for the airbrush. I used the engine cover to test. If it did not come out, I wanted it easier to remove the paint without damaging anything. I applied the maskol and painted. Then I applied lights and shadows and took out the maskol. Regards ajcmac

    Walking slowly because I lack some material. Maskol to be able to do the shipping and the new set of 2 m / m for the airbrush. I applied, in some panels, White Aluminum, from Alclad. The engine also almost ready missing some weathering. Regards ajcmac

    Painting the model with the X-18 was a mistake. Although it worked in the experiment I did on a wing used for testing on the model did not work. Fortunately the applied layers were very thin and did not cover the details. I painted the model again but this time with the X-1 (black gloss) and for now it worked. The cowling of the engine already with Alclad aluminum. Let's see how it goes out in the fuselage. Regards ajcmac

    My English is not good, either. I usually use Google translator. I do not know the model in 1/48. I know it is already the third Japanese model that I build and I liked them a lot. Yes. I used the Tamiya XF-71. I taught students from six to nine. Primary school. Thank you. I hope that in the end I will continue to think the same. Well, I used the Tamiya X-18 as the base color. I've done a lot of testing and it looks like it works. I will paint the model with Alclad Alc-101 Aluminum. Shipping will be done with maskol applied with a sponge. I hope it works as it is the first time I do. The use of cyan glue worked. Regards ajcmac

    Thanks corsaircorp and Jonh. Well, I'm a teacher but I'm retired and I spend many hours on the bench. Apart from the time I have with my grandchildren, I take almost all the free time to dedicate myself to the models. I finished the propeller. I glued both pieces to the wings. As I already knew it would not be easy instead of putty I used cyan glue. I think I solved the problem the easy way. Then I had to redo a few lines. And then I glued my wings to the fuselage. Almost everything ready to start painting. Regards ajcmac

    I had problems with my airbrush. As I did not know if it was the needle, nozzle or air cap I bought the complete set. I started to weathering the cockpit. I applied lights and shadows. I painted the small details. Now a layer of gloss coat and start placing the decals. Regards ajcmac

    And to the third it seems that the phantom line seems to have disappeared. The propeller is finished. Landing trains and doors, painted. Follow the wheels. Regards ajcmac

    To make it disappear the fuselage union line I used putty. It did not work. I then used cyan glue. I'll paint to see how it looks. I prepared the landing gear and the doors for the painting. The instrument panel already painted. Regards ajcmac

    I painted the propeller hub with the Tamiya XF-70, the propeller with the XF-64 and then the yellow stripe. I then applied lights with the XF-64 mixed with yellow on the leading edge and black at the base of the blades. Then I applied Alclad clear gloss. I glued the back of the fuselage. Regards ajcmac

    I started by gluing the wings and fuselage. I painted the interiors. I put the mask on the transparencies and painted the color of the interior. And that's enough for now. Regards ajcmac
