One of my favorite jets, because it's ugly like an A-10....please keep us informed of how this one fits, I might just get one myself
21. January 2014, 21:02

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

22. January 2014, 23:16
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, 23:20
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, 23:25
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, 23:28
B
A 10/0? They make those! Wow,i might get one for figures
22. January 2014, 23:29
Augie
They do.. tho with my eyes these days might be too small for me lol
22. January 2014, 23:31
B
Haha :)
22. January 2014, 23:36
B

25. January 2014, 22:38
Holger Kranich

Did ya work with decals?
26. January 2014, 08:23
Augie

26. January 2014, 10:38
Urban Gardini
What paint have you used for that horrible turqoise colour?
26. January 2014, 12:35
Matthias Weiss
I think Augie used Humbrol Frogfoot-Green for this.... ;)

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

Urban, I'm using the Model Master 2135 for the cockpit colour
26. January 2014, 14:19

Wim van der Luijt
wow...a very steady hand!
26. January 2014, 20:06
Augie
thanks Wim, an very small brushes lol
26. January 2014, 20:09
Wim van der Luijt
5X0 is the smallest I have...If I go easy on the caffeine it usually works...
26. January 2014, 20:11
Augie
my smallest is a 10/0 i find caffeine helps me
26. January 2014, 20:13
Augie
Right Hand side console done.
26. January 2014, 20:54
B
Nice!!
26. January 2014, 20:56
Augie
Thanks Brandon :)
26. January 2014, 21:01
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, 21:44
Augie
Thanks Clifford,

10/0 for me and backside of a scalpel :) works wonders
26. January 2014, 21:45
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, 21:48
Augie
:) Defo allways best before you make it the fastest seasprite ever
26. January 2014, 21:57
Clifford Keesler
I did , I quit for the day.
26. January 2014, 21:58
Augie
cockpit tub is now done
26. January 2014, 23:07
B
Awesome! Are the real ones that same color in the cockpit? It's such a weird color for a cockpit
26. January 2014, 23:12
Augie
Hehe you mean the wonderful Russian cockpit green?

[img1]
 


Its real..
26. January 2014, 23:17
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, 23:23
Augie
It sure stands out... they called it calming
26. January 2014, 23:24
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, 23:26
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, 23:31
Augie
Time to button the sides up...
28. January 2014, 21:51

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.
29. January 2014, 19:05
Augie
Hi Clifford, Its a pre-mix.

Model master 2135 Russian Interior Blue/Green

Augie
Thanks Guys :) All brush painted
17. February 2014, 23:39
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, 23:57
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, 00:02
B
Cool,I'll pick one of those up later.
Thanks
18. February 2014, 00:04

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, 20:24
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, 20:26
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, 20:31
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.
