Aris aka Amen Nice progress Mathios. I like the varnish.
19. December 2018 at 13:30:52
Michael Phillips Wow, this is some serious rehab and restoration... She's really looking great Maciej so far! We shall dub her Phoenix... :)
19. December 2018 at 20:56:25
Maciej Bellos LOL Michael! Phoenix she is!

I got the exhaust done. It may seem dull, with no variations at all, so my work may not show. I got the all the exhaust painted with Model Master Magnesium Buffing. Then half way to the end I applied a rather light coat (or so I thought) of Model Master Chrome Silver. Half the nozzle looked shiny, half looked dark and a bit dull. The idea was that the feather didn't suffer that much of stressing in terms of heat.

After that I made a mixture of Humbrol 53, Humbrol 33, Humbrol 155 and Humbrol 110 so that it looked like a matt, dirty, brownish, drabish metal. With surgical precision I painted the appropriate part of the feathers. A dry cotton bud was used to correct some errors and make the shiny part, less shiny.

Finall my daughter's rubber band was used as substitute masking, since the magnesium is really fragile to the masking tape glue. Noted for future projects. The area between the fuselage and the engine feather is painted with Humbrol 201 Metallic Black.

I will dry brush the streaks inside the engine exhaust next.

I also made some streaks on the lower part of the engine bay and on the hinges of the leading edge slats of the wings. Pretty subtle I think.

Seats, hud and canopy are next.

Cuajete LOL... Your daughter's rubber band was a fantastic idea!
05. January at 18:10:16
Łukasz Gliński Nice hint with the rubber band :)
06. January at 13:52:01
Maciej Bellos Some progress, seats, canopy (not glued in place), landing gear doors. The streaks under the engine bay and on the wings are more visible in the last two photos (used a mobile, sorry for the quality).

Maciej Bellos Welcome Treehugger! There are one 20mm cannon and two .303 machine guns depicted in the boxart. Gareth's link was very helpful.

Treehugger I went now to check with my Eduard spit in 1:48 scale, but I realized that I have the IXe. That one only has two .50 cannons apparently.
30. October 2018 at 19:33:18
Treehugger Looking at the drawings for the Eduard IXc on their website, the outer 303 guns seems to be a little over the center line, I did not know that. Presumably, the new Eduard stuff is more accurate. No 303 gun barrel seems to be protruding out of the wing.

Maciej Bellos That looks promising right? Dryfitting the lower part of the cowling. Things are a bit bleak. I'll try to glue it in the proper place the best I can before putty comes in and the fine rivet detail disappears...
04. January at 22:05:49
Adam Gudynowski You could use Eduard's Spitfire ;)
06. January at 10:32:27
Maciej Bellos Hahaha, I could Adam, I could.
06. January at 13:27:41
Adam Gudynowski A little bit of putty and it will be perfect

Maciej Bellos Thank you Clifford.

One other thing that needs fixing is the engine nozzle. Well, you can't fix it actually...! The F100 engine, built by Pratt and Whitney, has 15 turkey feathers. The F110 engine, built by General Electric, has 12 turkey feathers. Both engine nozzles in Italeri's kit have 14 feathers!!! So I am going to use a nozzle from Hasegawa's kit, since they will be built as Block 40/50 machines.

03. January at 23:32:11
Maciej Bellos Welcome Jos. I have been working on and off. Some wiring has been added to the main wheel bays, maybe I'll post a photo or two. My attention is on the Spangdahlem Viper, I have been working on the bits and pices (canopy, landing gear, seats) left. Yesterday I got her on her feet.
04. January at 08:14:56
Hans Robben Interesting Viper and some creative modeling here, having a seat!
