Good evening mates,

 

this is kit(s) I'm joinning this GB with - simple but reasonably well detailed Platz A-4E in braillescale. Box contains 2 kits, so as @Enzo Matrix would say - let's build them all! :D

Decals are given for 4 aircraft - I chose to do the middle two:

 

- VMA-211 Wake Island Avengers

- VMA-311 Tomcats

See you soon in "work in progress" stage...

 

Cheers,

Welcome aboard sir, and with the smallest kits in the GB so far.

Platz have a reputation for high quality so these should be nice builds.

Good choices on the decals, Hasegawa chose the same two for one of their 1/48 releases.

Looking forward to seeing these built up.

Hi Srkirad,

 

these Platz A-4s have earned rave reviews, so you should build two little wonders.

Have a lot of fun.

Thanks mates, looking through the parts, I saw their number is not so big, and having cockpit basically a ejection seat, I presume assembling will be pretty straightforward.

Painting is also simple - having done 3 Tomcats in 1/144 recently, I'm used to this scheme now :)

Probably the biggest work on these two will be placing decals, as there are a pretty decent number of them on the sheet.

 

Cheers,

S.

These little fellas were a bit on "standby" during last month, due to finishing some other projects, but I did some work on them, so here is the current state - all the main parts assembled, and ready for cockpit painting, and inserting of ejection seat(s)...

Maybe there is some small repair work on few places, but overall this is not too far from primer phase....

Assembling of main parts is done, primer is sprayed, and today I've done preshading too.

That is very nice pre-shading, especially as it is in 1/144 scale, far neater than when I try it in 1/48!

I am looking forward to seeing the paint on, should be great.

First color (white) is finished, I will spray grey probably during weekend.

Today I've painted Grey upper surfaces - Gunze FS26440, lightened with few drops of white for middle parts of panels, so preshading is a bit more emphasized now.

Next step is gloss coat before decals...
