Hobbyboss EMB-314 Tucano 1/48


Recommended Posts

After a hectic month or so I need a bit of modelling tonic. 

The Bucc is on hold as its turned into a mare after the drop incident so 

I was looking for something a bit more straight forward to knock about.

 

Chose this kit from the stash. 

 

P1110301

 

And thought I'd add these, first time using them so hopefully it will go okay.

Lets see how this goes together.

Cheers Roger,

 

So the Quinta stuff, its good but fiddly, you have to glue these on so I used Mig Ammo's Ultra glue.

They are very rubbery and flexible, quite weird really and I had a job getting the main IP's to stick down.

I only had to trim one of the side decals so the fit is excellent. 

 

Verdict is - I like them, so so much better than what I could paint.  

 

No colour matching details so I played it by eye and got it wrong, as the paint I used for the tub dried it darkened up slightly but with the seats and pilots in it 

won't be so noticeable. I'm gong to weather up the tub anyway slightly.

More work on the pit,  forward and rear combings painted up, HUD frame added. 

Dark grey wash done to the lower tub and some chipping done.

The few bits of AM that are going to be used, some pilot figures will get added yet but I'm undecided on which to use?

A bit more work on the pit, I have found that Mig Ammo light Compass Ghost Grey is a good match 

for the Quinta decals so I have repainted some of the more obvious areas of the Cockpit now.

Looking very nice, I like the 3D panels, would make an interesting Army co operation A/C in RAF wrap round round Grey/Green................

Seats being worked on, these are glossed at the moment 

so look a little bright, I've used some Airscale decals 

so once dry they will get a nice matt varnish and weathered up.

Fuselage closed up and wings on, I must say the the fit of this kit is one of the best I have built.

lovely to pop together. No filler at this point only a smidgen of Vallejo Putty on the wing root  and a tiny bit of Mr Surfacer

to check the seams. 

 

Canopy check fit time.

More work done tonight. 

 

Gear bays painted up, some primer to check seams and the exhaust painted up, 6 colours used on the exhaust so far.

Elevators modified as HB got them wrong, they butted up against the rudder so a small angled cut was required 

to allow the rudder to move. Same script with the outboard pylons, they would of fowled the alerions so these were cut down.

A few days into the build and a masking session on the prop.

Quickboost control sticks with the Quinta decals added.

 

Drop Tanks primed. I've also removed the seam from the main canopy and polished it up plus added all the strakes to the rear of the 

Fuselage.

This is all very interesting :) 

 

Very nice work. Which of the decal options are you thinking of using?

 

Your modeling den looks amazing, by the way.

Cheers Smudge, I’m kinda set on the Brazilian Air Force scheme at the moment 

but I’m not 100% set on it yet.

Now and here  I can not show you  the real EMB-314 joint.

Cheers chaps for the kind words and feedback.

Been a while since my last update, still been trying to grab a few mins at the bench 

but its been once again hectic.  So here is latest work done.

HUD fitted and front canopy now on. 

 

Pilots were donated from a Meng F-18F and fit quite well with some leg surgery.
