Vietnam...1/48 F-100D Super Sabre

Recommended Posts

Hi, this is one of my current projects (the others being a twin seat Typhoon and a F2 Banshee), although I am building the F-100C kit from Trumpeter.  I can personally recommend the Eduard detailing seats for the exterior, cockpit, and undercarriage.  I look forward to seeing some photos of your build.

 

Kind regards

 

Andy

intend to use the kit seat, added some Fine Molds seatbelts, they are WW2 but look good enough

painted the engine area with Model Master Metalizer Chrome, now some different metallic shades and some wash to weather it

Very nice work. Cockpit looks brilliant, and the rear of the fuselage looks good too.

fuselage painted, the Model Master Metalizer paints a great, very fine pigments, sweet surface

but the problem with these paints is that you need a smooth surface on your model because you see EVERYTHING

some sanding and filling work to do

used Gunze Mr Metral Primer to seal the metal paint but sadly it partly "ate" the Model Master paint, so maksing the engine area again and repainting the model, this time my dad will use Vallejo Metal Color Aluminium

in the end my dad painted the Hun with the ordinary Tamiya XF-16 Aluminium, a bit rougher than real Metalizer paints but good enough for a worn Vietnam comabt look

That's looking ok. What was used for the heat blur?

 

Tamyia XF-9 Hull Red and Gunze H63 Metallic Blue Green

That work on the heat area of the tail will make the difference in the end. Nice simple technique.
