  1. That's some super-sharp masking Colin, lovely stuff. Dermot
  2. So haven't posted on this one in a while as it got pushed to the side while I got stuck into group builds through the year. But she's back now! When I left it, I had only started painting the saucer halves. Bandai_Solo_Falcon_paint_1 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Both sides now done. It's Tamiya XF-1 over a black primer coat. Bandai_Solo_Falcon_paint_2 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Then glossed up - I painted some of the blue markings and used the kit decals on some others. I found the Bandai decals to be good, really strong colour a

  5. So with the last bits added, she's done. When taking the photos, I realised I haven't painted the black edge on the fin, so will go back and fix that. That big fin really sells the stripes and have enjoyed building this one - nice change not to have to paint & decal drop tanks and stores!

IMG_9197 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Until the next time, ta
  6. Home stretch now and she's on her feet. The main canopy was only tacked on so just tidying up the red decal on that. Tamiya Tornado F3 build 13 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Final bits like doors, aerials and she'll be done! Thanks for looking. Dermot
  7. Thanks all and decals are done now with a final gloss coat..

So there are some touch-ups with red paint here and there. Then, just a little panel line wash, nothing too heavy. Tamiya Tornado F3 build 12 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Final bits to add and she'll be done! Thanks for looking. Dermot
  8. Thanks all. While I airbrushed the kit, the mottle was done with a sponge - wasn't brave enough to use the a/b! It turned out ok..not the smoothest mottle and learned a lot for the next time. Cheers, Der
