Trumpeter 1/48 CAC JF-17 Thunder


Recommended Posts

Good evening Britmodellers,

 

Latest off the bench yesterday is Trumpeter's 1/48 CAC JF-17 Thunder with Wolfpack resin seat and exhaust and Frontpenny decals. The wash and stencils are somewhat overpowering, but it's a workmanlike kit and one box less in the loft. Paint is Mr Color 338 for the lighter grey, and AKRC 252 for the darker shade.

 

Thanks for looking and comments welcome

 

Jon

Stunner, super details and thos decals look painted on. 

 

Some of the markings are painted on (the roundels, the tail number and the airbrake outlines) and the rest are decals that were heavily glossed and then sanded before a flat coat to get rid of the thick and ragged carrier film.

 

Cheers

Another lovely build from you Jon. I really like the effects you have achieved with careful use of colours on the exhaust. A lovely dirty burnt look. I’m just reading your entry on the Sea Stallion at the moment. A very interesting read
