  1. I finished a F-16C Block 52 of the South Carolina Air National Guard. It is made from the Tamiya Block 25/32 ANG boxing, with spare parts from a Thunderbirds kit to make a Block 52. The decals are from Speed Hunter Graphics (Guardian Vipers) Further Aftermarket items: Eduard Brassin ejection seat Eduard Brassin Sniper ATP Aires exhaust Royal Resin weighted wheels Shull24 HTS pod Master Models pitot tube & AOA sensors Top Studio carbon fiber decals for the exhaust petals For the HG V paint, I used the Mr. Paint set, which consists of the base color and a sparkling matt varnish. Cheers, Markus
  2. Hi! I finished the F-5E from AFV Club in the Livery of the Patrouille Suisse aerobatics team. It is depicted in taxi configuration. It was abit of a hassle, since the parts of the forward fuselage had quite some distortion (I didn't encounter this problem with my other two F-5E builds.) Furthermore, the original decals were absolutely crap (the tended to crack), so I had to source some aftermarket decals. Luckily, I found a sheet from OH Models. This sheet, however, was missing the stencils. I therefore used declas from IPMS Austria. The pilot is taken from a Tamiya F-16. I also used the Quickboost set for the open auxiliary intake. The pitot and gun barrels are from Master Models. Cheers, Markus
  3. Hi! I recently finished a F/A-18E of the VFA-31 in the AnniversaryLivery from 2010. Kit is the Hasegawa kit in 1/48. Aftermarket items used: Decals are from Afterburner Decals. Quickboost Seat Quickboost ECS vents Phase Hangar seamless intakes Eduard GBU-38 Wolfpack ATFLIR pod Tamiya AIM-9X, AIM-120 and GBU-12 (from the F-16 kit) I had an accident in the final stages of the build. Something hit the canopy from above and left a crack. Furthermore, the HUD was dislodged. It did get lost in the airframe, and I only found it and managed to reattach it after taking the pictures. The build thread is here: Cheers, Markus
  4. I finally finished my Super Hornet. After the gloss coat, I made an oil wash, flat coated the TPS area and made the final assembly. I had a bummer nearing the end (meaning after the oil wash, right before the flat coat. The model was in an unsafe place, because I planned to flat coat it in the next hour or so. As I was looking for something in the cupboard above it, an object fell on the modell. As the canopy was still masked, I didn't find out about the degree of the damage. The nose antenna broke of, and I heard a rattling inside the aircraft. so I assumed that the HUD was dislodged. The nose antenna was no problem, there was a spare in the kit. I thought that maybe I can remove the canopy and reattach the HUD. However, after the final flat coat, when I unmasked the canopy, I found out that the object seemed to have hit the canopy directly and there was a crack in the canopy As it turned out, I glued the canopy in place really tight. So I found no way to repair the damage without greater surgery and replacement parts and decals, therefore I decided to leav it as it is. It is a pity, but I think it is still a beautiful model. I managed to reattach the HUD - the windscreen wasn't glued as tight as the canopy - but that was after I took the pictures More pictures will be posted in the Ready for Inspection: Cheers, Markus
  5. Wow, time flies. It's been a long time since the last update. Anyhow, I wasn't idle during lockdown. After painting and fading the TPS, I painted the skunk stripe. I didn't weather it very much, since on the reference pictures, the bird is relatively clean. Further detail painting and a gloss coat: And so the decaling bagan. The Afterburner decals went on really smooth. Sadly, the stripes for the black/red tank were not inlcuded on the decal sheet, so I had to make my own: Applied to the red tank: And after a gloss coat, I painted the rest black: Cheers, Markus
  6. Painting continues. Here, the underside is already painted with MRP Light Ghost Grey, upper surfaces with MRP Dark Ghost Grey First stages of a light weathering: On pictures, the original aircraft has barely any signs of waethering. The bottom has yet to receive some more weathering. The tails are peinted and decaled. Som light touch ups are necessary. Cheers, Markus
