David Barclay Looking Good Michael! Is it me or is ur marbling a lot "tighter"??? Looks Like you got a new airbrush!? LOL
22. March at 07:31:06
Michael Hickey WoW.... You've got that marble effect down pat, she's looking great.
22. March at 12:01:12
Michael Phillips Welcome Es-haq!

Thanks David and Michael! Haha, how did you know that David? Insider information... LOL

But I have refined my marble technique. The big secret? Just go like hell. Seriously, it takes me like barely an hour to do all of that, even on a huge plate like the Foxbat. I don't spend much time in each panel, just draw some squiggles, then go over random areas of each panel to give it a little extra highlight. So the trick is... do it fast!
22. March at 14:58:35
Spanjaard i will certainly try that in my next model :)
22. March at 20:10:49
Christian Bruer Very nice work so far Michael
22. March at 20:20:17
Erik Leijdens Will try it once too. Have the Black Mr.Surfacer primer now, both in rattlecan and jar. So will try the marble technique on my next model too. Well not exactly my current build since it is a all white Skyhawk..

Nice job Michael. I assume you are making a Iraqi Foxbat?

Bryn Crandell Looking good so far.

You got me worried mate! You haven't posted anything on the MiG and I am worried that you will post it finished!
07. March at 19:55:42 Share
Michael Phillips LOL Yeah, I have had a crazy week at work and have not had much time to work on it. I got the cockpit together and I just need to upload pics. I did work on the intakes a little last night and man are they tricky. Lots of things coming together in one area, so I was having some issues there. I will try to upload what I have so far soon!

Maciej Bellos Michael check the following link:

https://doogsmodels.com/2017..-kittyhawk-su-17m3m4-fitter/

It looks rather grim...

I will be following this polish bird.
28. February at 18:15:44
Marko Definitely watching.
28. February at 18:32:16
Michael Phillips Thanks Maciej and Marko! Now I just need to get the ModelMaker decals that feature this particular Fitter. This kit may get moved WAY up in the queue, so be ready! I am in a Russian built jet mood of late.

Maciej, I have read and watched Doogs' reveiws. I see his point, but I also think he is a bit overly critical. Does this kit have some engineering issues? Yep. Challenging fit? Yep. But it is also the best Fitter kit in my scale and the HB kit seems like it is going to have some issues of it's own (particularly the windscreen). With all that said, I am looking forward to tackling the challenge as I really love this odd bird.
28. February at 21:46:02
David Barclay Followed your lead on this one Michael! My kit is shipping today from KH! So add this to the list! Lol
28. February at 22:35:39
Michael Phillips Awesome! I think maybe this one should be our next buddy build??? I am pretty eager to start this one. :)
28. February at 22:41:30
Jeff Owens Looking forward to seeing this come together Mike
28. February at 22:47:37
David Barclay Sounds good too me! Just need to find some Libyan Markings!
01. March at 08:48:49
Michael Phillips Thanks Jeff!

David, check this out... CE Decals still has decals for sale, including one that has the Libyan Fitter.

fineartofdecals.com/goodies/148-treasures-postwar/

Scroll down about halfway for the "Su-22 Colorful Fitters" decals.
01. March at 17:15:31
David Barclay Thanks Michael! But I ordered a polish sheet! lol kinda like that grey camo too!
02. March at 04:51:55
Holger Kranich Oh i´m in here! The kit is on my wishlist and i´m eager to see how it is to build. And aside of that - the grey camo looks pretty cool!
02. March at 11:05:56
Maciej Bellos Oooohhh it went up the list blindingly fast. Looking forward to it mate.
02. March at 20:53:49
Michael Phillips Uh oh, David and I are doing the same kit in the same markings... I better step my game up!!!

Welcome aboard Holger, buckle up, this one has been moved up to next after the ICM MiG-25 I am working on now. I will try to give my thoughts as best I can as I work on this one.

Yessir Maciej, this one is next now! I am really looking forward to building it, as well as the ICM MiG I just started.

Murad ÖZER Something to be proud of for sure, lovely lovely build Michael, big huge kudos. :)
28. February at 17:52:04
James C I've always liked the lines of the F-16. Superb job you've made of this one, and in a unusual scheme that makes it stand apart from the standard, but dull grey schemes. Very cool!
28. February at 20:19:21
Michael Phillips Thanks Michael, Marko, Ulf, Erik, Dale, Harry, Lex, Ed, John, Stephan, Holger, Günther, Maciej, Mike, Murad, and James! I am really stoked to get all these great compliments!

I am happy with this although I did make a couple boneheaded errors, most noticeable is the fact that the pods right by the intake opening by "69" should not be there. I went by the Tamiya instructions for a Block 32 aggressor and didnt even look at my reference material before attaching (and painting, GASP!) them. By then it was too late. The camo was too complicated to try to fix if I tore those bad boys off. So I left them.

Erik, the bluish tint is created like this: First, gloss black primer, followed by Alclad Airframe Aluminum. Then I sprayed random spots of Gold Titanium for a slight goldish hue in areas. Then I used Alclad Hot Metal Blue at differing intensities around the ring to give it that "Heat Stressed Titanium Blue" look.

Eelco, the Masks were an absolute necessity. I would not have attempted this scheme without them. It was not all rainbows and unicorns though, as they are a bit rigid and the contours of the F-16 do not lend themselves to easy masking regardless, especially around the intake area. If someone was going to do this scheme, I would say the SB masks for this are a must have.
28. February at 21:54:25
Jeff Owens Incredible work Mike, that's a real impressive looking viper
28. February at 22:51:29
Spanjaard very well done Michael!
