  1. Hi! I can't tell if that is what happened to your decals. But when using solvent based clears, I would recomend that you seal the decals with acrylics, or use a mist coat of the clear to seal the decals. With a mist coat, the solvent gasses out before it could eat into the decals. Hope that helps. Cheers, Markus
  2. Hi! Thanks. I sprayed it over Tamiya acrylics wihout problems. The acrylics have been toroughly dried before that. Also, I first sprayed a mist coat to seal the decals without dissolving them, before shooting a wet coat. I followed these instructions: Cheers Markus
  3. Thanks. The Diamond Finish is really great. Cheers, Markus
  4. Thanks. Its just OOB with a little alclad and EZ-Line Cheers, Markus
  5. Hi! I recently started my first WNW kit, the Sopwith Camel with the Le Rhone Engine. It will the blue painted C1555 "Suds" . It will be mostly out of the box, but I will use the HGW seat belts. I started with the engine.  Cheers, Markus
  6. Hi! I recently finished my Tamiya Kawasaki GPZ 400 R. It is mostly out of the box, only some cabling to the front fork was added. I stripped the chrome parts and painted them (exhausts) or used bare metal foil (fork, mirrors) Clear coat is Zero Paints 2K Diamond Finish. Cheers, Markus
  7. When installing the static discharger on the tip of the tail, I noticed that there was quite some paint build-up on the other dischargers, which affected their delicate appearance. I therefore carfully stripped them of the paint and repainted them, preserving their detail. I also repainted the exhaust and attached it to the aircraft. It is now finished, i only have to make a nice base. Cheers, Markus
  8. Thank you. Yes, I htought it was the JFS, but wasn't sure And I also broke (and lost) two of the static dischargers, luckily, the set included two spares. The one on top of the vertical tail will be attached last. Cheers, Markus
  9. Hi! Some other projects in the last weeks prevented me from working on any models. In the meanwhile, the gloss coat over the decals had anough time to dry, so I could do some detail painting, like the metal doors and mesh areas on the belly. The position light on top of the vertical tail was made from a clear sprue. For the A, it is more rectangular than for the C. The smokewinders were fitted with little ram air intakes on the bottom between the fins. Also, I did coat the black areas with a semi-gloss coat. I would have finished the aircraft yesterday, but when attaching the jet nozzle, I messed up with the CA glue. The glue settled while the nozzle wasn't pushed in the whole way. Luckily, during the process of extracting the nozzle, only the painting of the exhaust got messed up, the airframe itself remined undamaged. This is a review of how it will be mounted. The base in the picture is just a provisional base, and also the length of the acrylic rod probably will be shorter. I will determine the final length once the exhaust is repainted and fitted. Cheers, Markus
  10. The decals are on at last. This was by no means easy, as the decals are very fragile and need a lot of decal softener to conform to the surface details. Also, they seem to be not specifically sized to the Tamiya kit. But thankfully, there is enough sheet decal material in the darker orange to compensate for too small areas. The only issue is that the decals are not completely opaque, so if they overlap, the overlap areas are darker than the rest. Now a gloss clearcoat will follow. Cheers, Markus
  11. The black trims and a clearcoat are on. The aircraft is now ready for the dark orange lions: Cheers, Markus 
  12. Hi! I can't tell you yet. Theoretically, everything you need is on the decal sheet. When I applied the decal to the front wheel door, I found out that the decals are not sized for the Tamiya kit. So I will try out if the decals on the fuselage side behind the wings fit. I will tell you of my results. Cheers, Markus
  13. Thanks! After the base orange was dry, I shot the metallic orange. the darker orange fits perfectly to the colour of the Syhart decals. I sprayed the arresting hook area and the inside of the ventral strakes in this colour. After that, I carfully masked the orange parts to paint the black parts. In most areas, the boundaries of the black areas are marked by decals, so the outline don't have to be masked exactly. The grey IFF antenas have been painted by brush. Now it is ready to receive the black decals. Cheers, Markus
