Thank you Skywalker!

The red light came from a piece of LEGO, while the green one from a fluorecent cocktail stick which was paintd with transparent green.

Skywalker
Interesting idea. I never thought of using Legos or cocktail sticks.
21. November, 06:08
Maciej Bellos
I try to find solutions for various things. Some work, others don't. Transparent coloured plastic is suited for older aircraft. The newer use clear formation lights and coloured leds. The latest editions of the F-16 come to mind.

Thank you Roland!

Just to clarify things, it's a fictional camo, there aren't any Greek Vipers painted this way, even though we have Block 50 birds. We had F-5s, F-4s and Mirage F1s painted this way so it is a tribute to those aircraft.

Łukasz Gliński
Does the PA fly the F1s or did you mean the 2000 ones?
18. November, 17:56
Maciej Bellos
We flew the F1s until 2003 I think. We have 2000s since 1989 and we have a preliminary agreement to get 18 Rafales in the next two years. It's a pitty that there isn't a decent Rafale in the market.

Richard Berrie
Great work. Can you share some of your process please. Did you use a airbrush for the paint? The decals look great considering the fragility and the problems you had. Well done!
17. November, 14:10
Maciej Bellos
Thank you Richard! The whole thing was hand brushed by my daughter, I think 3 or 4 layers. Vallejo's liquid gold was a bit tricky, but she pulled it off. I don't think there are in progress pics, it's a kind of dog of a kit and it we didn't pay much attention on details. Minimal putty was used, I wanted her to enhance her skills in hand brushing and get some experience with decals (not the best specimen for that).
17. November, 19:38
Maciej Bellos
Thank you Mirko!

Gold is valueable!
18. November, 15:22

I find airfix decals to not have that problem and i too use Mirco sol and set, i ran out need to buy some more! Train and such has some! PM hobby could not get any because of a storage (masks and all).
18. November, 15:25
Maciej Bellos
Thank you!

Airfix decals are pretty much indestructible! They can be used after years of storage. The Mistercraft decals on this one were next to useless. Next time I will spray some micro liquid decal film to keep them in one piece.

Cool! I like the consistancy of the markings!
18. February 2018, 17:18
Maciej Bellos
Thanks Patrick! Also the markings are placed in the correct direction. I wanted to have the pointy end pointing backwards. She insisted the other way and she is right. When looking at a model we start from the front to the back. Thus each heart is correctly positioned.

My daughter got a Japanese in glossy pink. Not doing much herself, than killing the landing gear all two days. Good to involve her in daddy's crazy stuff ;)

We have it finished for about a year now and I totally forgot to upload some pics of the final result. We actually are nearing completion of another kit and then we will start a legend, none other than the One-Oh-Four.

After some elementary work on the cockpit and more work on the seat (belts and some decals), I managed to close the fuselage with upper wings already attached on the fuselage halves. With this approach I managed to minimise the wing-fuselage gap. Some elbow grease now in order to fix the fuselage join.

My modelling skills are not that good to depict a broken canopy, a pilot with arms flailing in the wind and a parachute tangled on the tail. So let's say it will look like before taking off for that specific flight. Or maybe at the moment the seat ejects, which should be much easier. I might push this project up the queue and do a dual build with a Marine EA-6A, since both are Italeri kits with the same camouflage, but different squadrons and eras (nearly 20 years apart).
Thank you for your interest Hans and I'll keep you posted!

Unfortunately I have to cancel this build. I am not able to print the decals. So it will be build as one of the box decals.

Any ideas on which Humbrol red to use for the tricolor?
23. March, 20:59

14 & 60 ? Or 25 & 60?
24. March, 08:36

Didn't think of 60. Thanks! 14 is my pick too for the blue.

Classic numbers, I know them by heart. You're welcome as always :)
24. March, 18:19
Maciej Bellos
Went through my stash. Got Revell's 32152 which might be too blue for a french blue. Humbrol 25 has a hint of purple which could be ok. I'll see if I can get my hands on a tin of Humbrol 14.
As for the reds, I have Humbrol 19 (too red), Humbrol 60 (a faint hint of orange there-kinda matches the overcast photo) and Humbrol 174 (rather dark). I'll make some paint chips to check them all out, or even better I'll paint pieces of paper cut in the shape of the tail.
24. March, 20:44

Consider also the varnish, which usually darkens the colour a bit.
