Was a ‘Sundowner’… now a ‘Silver King’

Hi Paul,

 

I really like the complexity you have achieved in the base coat. It is going to look great with the top coat. I also like AK Real Colors. Excellent to spray and maybe the best self levelling properties out there with their thinners. They're in competition with my preferred Gunze lacquers and MLT.

Really neat job on the pre-shading Paul, some great airbrush skills.

Thanks for the heads up with the tape, will give that set  a wide berth.

Cheers mate. 🙏

I’m going bonkers shading so I’m calling this a wrap on the fuselage. I’ll gloss coat seal it when its cured and then start on the black and metal bits.

This little fella has been started…

and I’ve started detailing the seats. This is an attempt to get that parachute cover texture happening.

Thanks ray. I’m really impressed with them. Gunze laquers mixed with mlt i’ve never tried but after this I am very open to new laquer experiences

It's come a long way since I last dropped in. Well done.

Thank you Bertie. It took forever black basing the damn thing but I like the look of it.

WOW Paul, she's looking amazing!!!!   I love the unevenness of the finish, looks perfect! :thumbsup:

 

I ned to do the same with both my F-4B and my F-14A, so will be back go over all your photos again.

 

Glad you like that AK Real Color paint, I absolutely love the stuff, it's my new fav after the MRP stuff, which is hard to get certain colours here. Their thinner is nice but that paint also thins perfectly with Tamiya's Yellow (ish) cap lacquer thinners as well.

 

You mightn't know this but AK also turn out Radome Tan in the Real Color range as well, I have a bottle.

I’ll definately be increasing my paint stash of AK in the future. Only 15 million gallons of tamiya stock to get through first.

Nice to know with the tamiya laquer thinner as I have that too. 👍
