Thank you Alex. I tried my best but I still learn and need more Experience. In the long term, I will probably have to switch to an airbrush with triple action. With my current H&S Ultra, it is difficult to draw very fine lines.

Not a fan of whifs, but this looks really nice. I use H&S Ultra too and such freehand camo is still somewhere on the learning curve ahead of me What's the secret behind that silver streaks here and there?

Silver Streaks = Gray Streaks: since this was mainly a learning project for me, I tried to apply some chippings. Please do not pay attention to whether these are actually attached in really useful places. :#

Nevermind the location, but I'm curious to know what the methodology was :)

Don't sell yourself short you did a wonderful job..And this is coming from an airbrusher!

Thank you Mathijs, that means a lot to me. And Łukasz: the chipping is done very simple with a 000 brush. I tried but I don't like chipping with a sponge as you do not have full control of every chip. Especially not on a scale of 1/72.

Schönes Ding Christian! ....vor allem wenn man den Ausgangsbausatz bedenkt

cracking Deutsche-Flogger.....surprised DDR never had them when they were facing the West at the border.

I agree, the camo is looks very good! I use the H&S Ultra as well and I agree that it is somewhat difficult to make finer lines, but for the purpose of this camo it is more than enough (at least in the case with my F-2).
I also like the heavy weathering, probably too much for an in service vehicle, it gives a very convincing "still-preserved-and-exhibited-in-some-museum"-look though.

As an airbrusher i would like to clear up a few "maybe" misconceptions about..."Freehand" airbrushing! first of all there are "free hand" templates!! i use them all the time! its just creating an outline which is then filled in or used as a temporarily block at places you dont want to mask with tape...great free hand templates for this kind of work are cotton wool or the thicker kind of electrical wire (the ones with a single copper wire!) they are round so a soft edge is always there, yet creates a fine outline for the camo scheme and you can bend it so it will follow the contours of the air frame or armoured vehicle your spraying...What i'm trying to say is...Make use of whatever material you can find to make your life easier, And dont think that if you use templates your work is any less of a "Free Hand" Airbrush job out are only wasting energy with over-concentrating on trigger action, airflow, getting your paint mixture just right etc etc otherwise it could become something you're not looking forward to next time...And hey we are all in this for the fun of it...right

Mathijs, of course you are absolutely right, the focus is on having fun. And if you can make it easier for yourself, you can take advantage of it. Next time I wanted to use Uhu Pattafix to soften the edge a bit.

Łukasz Gliński
I think for 1/72 the edges you've got are great.
Just one more question: the ordnance is not out-of-the-box, is it?

Chris T. An
You mean the armament (missiles)? Yes, they are OOB. I just added some cables in the landing gear bay and worked in rivets.

Christian, Maybe UHU has some solvents in itself and please be careful...and maybe a cheaper and solvent free option would be "DAS clay"

Excellent finish! Never thought this kit could look that good. You have good construction skills.
