Augie Little update on instrument panel and cockpit tub
22. January 2014 at 23:14:56
B Nice! I like the instrument panel. Was it dry brushed? btw will you be joining the GB?

22. January 2014 at 23:16:49
Augie Hey Brandon, thanks It was not dry brush used small brush to pick out instruments.

And yes.. I'll be in the group build.. need to finish the matchbox one too
22. January 2014 at 23:20:55
B Cool! What size brush? An 000? The naval aviation GB is until April so I think you'll have time,do you have any idea of what you'll be building?
22. January 2014 at 23:25:29
Augie was done with a 10/0 brush and a magnifying glass

for the group build... I have no idea yet lol
22. January 2014 at 23:28:29
B A 10/0? They make those! Wow,i might get one for figures
22. January 2014 at 23:29:35
Augie They do.. tho with my eyes these days might be too small for me lol
22. January 2014 at 23:31:31
B Haha :)
22. January 2014 at 23:36:18
B Have you decided on what scheme to do?
23. January 2014 at 00:02:48
Augie still undecided either purple of num 3
23. January 2014 at 00:51:24
Clifford Keesler I still say #3.
25. January 2014 at 22:30:20
Augie Hehe yeah still cant decide.. still i have time
25. January 2014 at 22:36:51
Clifford Keesler Yes, you do.
25. January 2014 at 22:38:39
Holger Kranich The dashboard/Instrument panel looks quite amazing!
Did ya work with decals?
26. January 2014 at 08:23:31
Augie :) all paint hehe
26. January 2014 at 10:38:06
Urban Gardini What paint have you used for that horrible turqoise colour?
26. January 2014 at 12:35:21
Matthias Weiss I think Augie used Humbrol Frogfoot-Green for this.... ;)

Love your paint jobs, Augie!
26. January 2014 at 13:18:42
Augie thanks Matthias :)

Urban, I'm using the Model Master 2135 for the cockpit colour
26. January 2014 at 14:19:27
Augie Update of Instrument panel progress
26. January 2014 at 17:41:23
Wim van der Luijt wow...a very steady hand!
26. January 2014 at 20:06:42
Augie thanks Wim, an very small brushes lol
26. January 2014 at 20:09:24
Wim van der Luijt 5X0 is the smallest I have...If I go easy on the caffeine it usually works...
26. January 2014 at 20:11:12
Augie my smallest is a 10/0 i find caffeine helps me
26. January 2014 at 20:13:52
Augie Right Hand side console done.
26. January 2014 at 20:54:43
B Nice!!
26. January 2014 at 20:56:30
Augie Thanks Brandon :)
26. January 2014 at 21:01:55
Clifford Keesler Nice job Augie, Looks very realisitic. I am kind of a cockpit freak I think I spend more time on the cockpit than any other part of the model. I use a 0/0 brush and toothpicks. they work very nice.
26. January 2014 at 21:44:04
Augie Thanks Clifford,

10/0 for me and backside of a scalpel :) works wonders
26. January 2014 at 21:45:44
Clifford Keesler Whatever works is the way to go. I have been working on my seasprite, I had to quit for the day before it becomes a supersonic missle!!!!!
26. January 2014 at 21:48:51
Augie :) Defo allways best before you make it the fastest seasprite ever
26. January 2014 at 21:57:12
Clifford Keesler I did , I quit for the day.
26. January 2014 at 21:58:49
Augie cockpit tub is now done
26. January 2014 at 23:07:56
B Awesome! Are the real ones that same color in the cockpit? It's such a weird color for a cockpit
26. January 2014 at 23:12:29
Augie Hehe you mean the wonderful Russian cockpit green?


Its real..
26. January 2014 at 23:17:03
B I don't usually build Russian aircraft so I'm used to the greens and greys of pretty much everything else. But It is cool :)
26. January 2014 at 23:23:09
Augie It sure stands out... they called it calming
26. January 2014 at 23:24:28
B "Calming" I don't think a color will do much when you're engaged in a dogfight or a missile is locked on you
26. January 2014 at 23:26:55
Clifford Keesler The Montana Air National Guard painted the cockpits and seats of their F-106s the same color, They looked neat.
27. January 2014 at 23:31:48
Augie Time to button the sides up...

Clifford Keesler Augie, How did you get the interior color? Did you mix it or can you get it pre-mixed. I have a lot of Migs to build.

17. February 2014 at 22:19:14
Augie Thanks Guys :) All brush painted
17. February 2014 at 23:39:25
B What size brush do you use for the base coat? I use a 1/2 inch brush and it sometimes leaves lines in the paint. I'm going to my Lhs later and I'll get some more brushes
17. February 2014 at 23:57:40
Augie I dont base coat, I paint the cammo pattern color at a time.

That one was done with a Tamiya No.0 (87015) Item brush
18. February 2014 at 00:02:19
B Cool,I'll pick one of those up later.
18. February 2014 at 00:04:40
Holger Kranich Hey Augie! :)

18. February 2014 at 07:12:05
Augie Hehe thanks holly ;)
18. February 2014 at 09:07:26
Clifford Keesler Awesome Augie.
20. February 2014 at 22:32:47
Melf Boyens I am a fan of brush paint, well done! How was the building, is the Revell kit nice? I am looking fo an 1:48 version, Revell does not have the Russian Decals, but that is a minor problem, is it recommendable kit?
16. May 2015 at 20:24:37
Augie Hi Melf,

thanks very much :) It is the revel kit, with decals from the spares box.
It builds ok, but there are some gotcha's in the build.
16. May 2015 at 20:26:45
Melf Boyens You mean some fitting adjustment with putty- as nasty as in cricket the so called "inswinging yorker"? Tell me about it
16. May 2015 at 20:31:57
Augie the fit is ok, long as your careful. the only real downside is the intakes are a little sparse so you might want to putty it and smooth it out that way.
