Łukasz Gliński Masked the canopy finally, I know it's not perfect, but I'm happy with it. Now it's the time to blend it into the fuselage, so few days of sanding ahead of me :)
09. July at 21:14:23
Łukasz Gliński Managed to blend the canopy into the fuselage (moreless), currently trying to scribe some convincing panel lines. As it's a vacuformed kit, I spent last two weekends scribing, filling with CA and sanding (in repeated turns of course). No idea when she's gonna be ready for painting :(
24. September at 21:33:27
Alexander G. Yeah, vacu kits are for true men (or masochists :D ) but for some aircraft types you have no choice...had the pleasure once myself with a Yak-11 from Waku. Turned out surprisingly well. Never heared of your aircraft type before. Looks great so far!
24. September at 22:29:08
Łukasz Gliński Thanx Alex. Luckily there are other Yak-11s available - one can be seen among my completed works :) Well, I-22 was an interesting story, but w/o a happy-end unfortunately...
25. September at 08:54:58
Łukasz Gliński Just for those who want to know what I'm doing - I keep on scribing and sanding (in turns) ;)
17. October at 22:48:50
18. October at 07:06:39
Łukasz Gliński Oh thanks ;( This is the least enjoyable part for me unfortunately. I can hardly wait to start painting...

I did the following today:
- opened my wishlist
- hid the marketplace info
- filtered for 'Azur' & 'MPM' companies (guess why? ;) )
- turned on the marketplace info again
The result: company filter has been removed upon last step.
Expected result: Wanted to see whether my wanted 'Azur' & 'MPM' kits are available.
Is it a feature? ;)
18. October at 08:08:21 Share
Dave Norman Hi Łukasz. It might be worth posting this in Feature Requests using the button on the right. That way Tim will see it and if there's a problem he can fix it. It it's supposed to be that way he can offer an explanation.

Łukasz Gliński Did the preshading few evenings ago. Then sprayed what I think should be yellow - I decided to spray the engine cover yellow as well, as it seems very bright on the pic I have (see the pic 14). Then I opened freshly bought Revell Enamel 49, mixed it, sprayed it few times and it looks horrible - as can be seen on pics 15 & 16... Any idea what did I do wrong? With Humbrol enamels and old yellow Revell Airbrush Enamels I don't have such issues...
17. October at 17:45:45
Alec K Ouch! I am so sorry. If I were to venture a guess, I would say the paint was too thick, the standoff was too large, or both.
17. October at 20:31:19
Łukasz Gliński Thanks Alec, looks like Revell enamels differ a lot from Humbrol ones - I sprayed both using the same settings.
I read somewhere to add the Yellow Gunze levelling thinner and sprayed a thin mist once more, didn't help much.
So I got desperate and sprayed thin layer of Wamod acrylic cleaner, helped a bit, but few panels around gondola will need repainting... probably will do it using a brush...
Of course preshading is gone, hopefully I'll recreate it using Tamiya smoke afterwards (like I did on my An-14).
17. October at 20:55:56
Cuajete Hello Łukasz. Maybe the paint needs to be mixed with retardant? It seems that it arrives dry from the airbrush to the plastic, although surely there is someone much more expert than me that can help you. I hope you can resolve this problem.
17. October at 21:47:25
Łukasz Gliński Thanks for your input Cuajete, I thought of it too. But I'm confused as revell.de says it's enamel paint needing minimum 24hrs to dry...
17. October at 22:42:43
Alec K Yeah, not sure if retarder or leveler is a solution for enamels - these products were developed for acrylics, which dry and cure much faster than enamels.

I think this is a thinning, standoff, or possibly air pressure problem. The sprayable paint should be thin (like fat free milk). After that, experiment with the standoff distance and air pressure to make sure that the paint goes on wet. I generally keep a scrap wing to experiment on before trying "for real" on a project.

One other possible culprit could be the thinner, and its compatibility with the paint. You mentioned adding Gunze leveling thinner: I don't think it's compatible with enamel-based paints.

Regarding pre-shading: you can always redo it once you fix the surface and apply the new paint.

Anyway, sorry to flood you with commentary. I am sure you will figure it out. I found that "sleeping on it" is the best way to figure out and overcome these setbacks. Keep us posted
18. October at 02:50:24
Mihailescu Alex-Ovidiu Following with great interest!
Łukasz , romanian Karases had only the undersides of wing tips yellow and rear fuselage band also yellow. Here is a link with a good build of a Karas

18. October at 07:20:21
Łukasz Gliński @Alec: I don't mind commentary flooding, all constructive comments are very welcome :) I read MrColor Levelling Thinner is like cheese - good with anything ;) And it seems to work.
Currently my strongest suspicion is the surfacer - I will check today the Humbrol 116 on the topside over the same surfacer.

@Alex-Ovidiu: Thank You for the links. I know the most of them were painted the way You wrote, but one of the pics on that Romanian forum shows also a yellow engine cover: cartula.ro/forum/index.php?app=core&module=attach§ion=attach&attach_rel_module=post&attach_id=3344
I have to rethink that idea once again...

Thomas Hopfensperger hello Łukasz,
i like your project! I made one some years ago, when you get the zts kit with decals you can make a conversion with the new one. you can see it in my project. I spent a long time with researching the camo. i will post more to show the pattern
12. October at 12:35:21
Łukasz Gliński Wow, you BR200 looks lovely, especially taking into account the quality of the ZTS sprues. Regarding the camo - I have a very nice article in one Polish magazine, but looking forward to seeing your research too. The most popular idea of BR200 camo (sand, brown & green) is tempting, but I'd also like to follow the original pattern. Could you also provide the information what did you modify regarding the shape of Your Iskra?
12. October at 13:49:50
Maciej Bellos It might seem an overkill, but... you can use the parts that cover the second seat of the mastercraft kit in the Arma Hobby kit. A bit of kit bashing. And the decals. Moreover I can send you my leftover decals from my BR turned Team Iskry kit.
16. October at 18:15:52
Łukasz Gliński Thanks for the offer Maciej. I think I'll combine both kits somehow, but let me finish Iryda first :)

Łukasz Gliński Decals from Ukraine have arrived, but they differ to what was presented on the webpage (see the green rectangles on the last pic). I'm currently thinking whether to paint the lines completely or try to use as much of the decal sheet as possible and modify the red decal to make the turn.
24. September at 21:20:01
Łukasz Gliński Well, to my astonishment I found replacement decals today in my post box. I wrote to them that the previous ones were wrong, but didn't get any feedback, so didn't expect much.
But great respect to the folkes from BSmodelle for such level of customer support !!!

Łukasz Gliński Thanks, it's not the level of Valiant/Stratojets you know ;)
I saw the idea for making corrugated steel out of alu foil on some Polish modelling forums and I find it v.useful and easy (you need only the foil and a toothpick). However the product is very delicate and handling must be done with great care.
31. August at 13:16:30
Alec K Looking great
15. September at 13:23:43
Stephan Ryll Nice progress
15. September at 17:08:14
Thomas Bischoff really nice work you do here!
15. September at 17:32:15
Łukasz Gliński Thank you gentlemen :) I had to stabilise the stabiliser as you can see :)
Currently working on the wings - I try to thin down the trailing edge, but I have already done some damage during cutting the wings, so I have to fix the corrugated surface later on (that's gonna be a real challenge). Btw. - I'm not gonna fix the shape issues (the wings are bit too wide and the rear fuselage section is too high).
15. September at 17:38:16
Łukasz Gliński Dryfitted fuselage and wings today (after completing last engines) - few gaps require filling and reverse engineering of the corrugated surface (still didn't decide between alu foil or the thinnest evergreen plate). Also I had to rebuild three hinges on the wings (white dots).
24. September at 21:28:09
David Thor That looks like you had alot of work to do! Looks like it's on a really good way!
