Maciej Bellos Welcome guys! So here's a question: can I use humbrol's red leather to paint the seat?
07. May at 22:10:41
Adam Gudynowski Have you checked if it was aluminium (so painted interior green) or plastic (red)?
08. May at 07:49:54
Maciej Bellos Adam, I haven't found a picture of the specific aircraft interior so far. So I decided to use Humbrol's red leather which I will try to give it a shiny finish.

Some progress made. All the interrior details have been painted and some parts like the throttle have been put in place.

Also painted: wheels and landing gear.

Next: instrument panel and belts.

Maciej Bellos I uploaded a photo of the instrument panel. Some gloss on the dials and possible some colour here and there.

Maciej Bellos The cockpit is done, with only the gunsight missing. Probably the best cockpit I've ever built and it was fun. Kudos to Hasegawa for this one.
I dryfitted the whole thing, it seems to go well. Also I checked if the canopy can be placed in the open position, it seems so without it being stressed. So it will be open, but... the cockpit door will be closed. I am reluctant in cutting it away from the rest of the fuselage. This is one shortfall of the kit (not the most important one, which is the length of the fuselage - I don't bother).
15. June at 22:18:55
Marcin Snakowski Nicely done!

Clifford Keesler Looking good. Nice fixes on the problem areas.
13. March at 20:09:48
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.

Patrick Hagelstein Cool! I like the consistancy of the markings!
18. February at 18:18:33
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.

Maciej Bellos My daughter's second model. She insisted on it being pink. Since pink is a rather elusive modeling colour, I decided to make it myself. At a local hardware store, the owner told me to mix red and beige. My lifecolor inventory has red and flesh. A 50-50 mix rendered a rather dark shade of pink. After some more experimentation with adding white I got the final shade, daughter approved :)
At first I offered Minnie. Then she wanted butterflies. I counter offered some unicorn stickers but she decided colourful hearts.
A gloss coat is up next and possibly #2 on the tail fin, and she'll be ready.

Maciej Bellos Work done so far:

- Cockpit painted (I love those Monogram cockpits!)
- Wheel wells painted (I think I love those Monogram wheel wells)
- Formation lights and beacons painted
- Wings glued
- Exhaust painted with ModelMaster's Jet Exhaust 1/2

Obviously still at the beginning but it has started!

Maciej Bellos Thank you Ari for the heads up! I will see to it.

20 grams of weight added around the front wheel well. I think it will do the job.

Isn't it strange to have US/Nato Weapon set (Skunkmodels 72002) under ordnance and US/Nato Modern Weapons set (Skunkmodels SW48006) under Fire Weapons & Arms which refers to Guns, rifles, revolvers, grenades?

The two sets have a lot of missiles in common (even though in different scale), yet they belong to different categories.
12. November 2017 at 22:10:55 Share
Spanjaard somebody has changed topic to AGM-154 for the second one. and the first one seem to appear under "Ordnance (dont use)".. that is strange
