  1. Thanks Dov. The weathering was done with the Tamiya weathering set “oil stain” stippled on with an old stiff brush and then worked with some damp sponge foam in a tapping motion. No preshading. I like to do post shading with the airbrush.
  2. Cheers Mate for the comment. I understand what you are saying about the black. Fortunately the DACO F-14 book has some good pictures of the sister ship "164" in the same scheme and the black is indeed quite glossy and clean on the nose and the tails. Also I have kept the final clear coat a touch glossy to make it easier to clean the model. It is wayyyy too big for my cabinet.
  3. Hi All My latest completion is off the bench after a 6 month project build. It is the Trumpeter 1/32 F-14D Tomcat done in the markings of VF-101 Grim Reapers. The model includes resin ejection seats, resin wheels and resin wing seal bladders. The decals came from DXM and are printed by Cartograph, they performed flawlessly. Paints are all lacquers from MRP and SMS ranges and the weathering was completed using Tamiya panel line wash, Tamiya pastels and AK colour pencils. There are some known inaccuracies with the Trumpy kit but fixing those was outside the scope of this project so I picked my battles. Anyhoo - enjoy some pics. I hope that looks ok, I'm quite happy with how it turned out. Cheers Andrew P.
  4. Wow that’s really great work. Love the execution of the faded paint work.
  5. Love me a good Skyhawk. She's a beauty.
  6. Well that did turn out pretty good didn’t it. Fantastique.
  7. Hello Friends This is my just completed Zvezda 1/48 Mi-24 Hind - finished as a Hind W of the Polish Air Force Circa 2002. I've been working on this kit since it landed on my bench. The fit is very good but the detail is quite basic. I used a fair chunk of aftermarket bits and pieces. -Montex Decals -Quinta Studios 3d cockpit decals -Eduard exterior photo etch -Eduard Brassin Resin UB-32 Rocket Pods -Eduard Brasssin resin Wheels -Eduard mask set -Master metal DUAS air probe and nose gun barrels I also added all the rivets and fasteners in a recessed style with my riveting tools, added some lines to the main rotor head from lead wire. Also repositioned some of the items like the flare and the ECM antenna to under the cockpit. Paints are lacquers from the SMS / MRP & Mr Colour ranges. Here's some pics , I hope you like her. That's all for now, I hope you like her. Thanks for looking.
  8. You've done a great job. A suggestion for you (only if you are interested). Next time have a go at replicating the iridescent film on the disco light under the tail. Clear colours or self adhesive foils can be used to great effect.
  9. Fantastic progress. You are really going to town on it. I have the same kit on the bench and went with the Quinta cockpit details. I can't speak highly enough of them. Can't wait to see your next update, Cheers.
