well the cockpit is done apart from a few touch-ups
the hardest part is adding the top center fuselage part and the one underneath,apart from that very nice kit to build so far
thanks for looking
I have seen this build now for the first time and it's looking good so far. I have seen that you have painted the wings already. Now I have a little suggestion about those. The paintline on the engines were a bit lower. The line was under the exhausts (see link for this) and stopped where the engine pot met the wing (breakline in the kit).
In the paint drawings from the kit was the upper colours even putted further back, but this is wrong and was only used on later models. To confuse things further, on some pictures it looks like it is painted further, but that's sut from the exhausts.
I hope this will help a little bit.
thanks arnold will adjust the painting, i was going to take it further back, thanks for the comment
now that is nice
very nice finish anychance of some underside photos
thanks darby for the heads up regarding the fuselage and not used enamels for over 20 years
steve if i have any build tips then i will share but so far its going nicely
anyway, spent a few hours this evening painting the engine cowling and adding the rear aileron's.
paints (i only use acrylics) so far are Revell dark green and nato olive for the upper wing camo(i did buy the RLM equivalents by tamyia but i couldnt get on with them) and left to dry for 12 hours, the underwing is being painted with Vallejo pale grey/blue 70907 which goes darker slightly when humbrol matt cote is applied then darker still with flory models dark dirt wash.
the splinter camo is being masked with electrical tape,which has a low tack
underwing drying note the bottom of a can of caffreys irish beer being used as a palette! the fixed widget makes a sturdy base
thanks for looking
That will be rather large once done, can i ask where you got it for £30?!

firstly its big and secondly the detail is amazing for £30
as its cheap im using the paint and weather as you go method
going about this back to front,and starting with the wings due to its size

a truly stunning model,
thankyou for sharing
must lie down,that is one stunning model

well finally an update!!!
got the figures yesterday
my gf got me the Black Dog US Special Forces,but unfortunately i never received the afghanistan women set as my brother never got the email! oh well
the black dog figures are very detailed but a bit of flash and some air holes are evident but nothing major,also the weapons are very fragile.
these are the first figures i have painted in 20 years and as they are special forces anything goes 'uniform' wise
Fantastic job, great workmanship.
Particularly like the weathering.
many thanks, i used a bit of dry brushing and mig pigments
Looks good, but I'd warn anyone clicking on the links back to the original pics - there's some pretty NOT SAFE FOR WORK popups that sneak onto your screen while you're trying to view the HUMVEE pics
sorry about that,never had that problem before i have rehosted the photos so should not be problem anymore
im calling this finished
its tamiya's 1025 a nice kit to build
thanks for looking
