2. July, 10:26
Nils Steyaert
Update: i started with a rough sketch of what would be placed and the size of the building, keeping in mind the limited space i have on the board (salvaged from a scrapped drawer unit).

on the shoppinglist for this project (aircraft not included):
-5 sheets of 1mm thick styrene sheet
-5 sheets of 0.5mm thick styrene sheet (roofs)
-pasticard rods and tubes (rtevetment detailing)
-10 x 30mm wooden strips (for revetment)
-scenic background poster...
4. July, 15:48
Nils Steyaert
Update 2:

the first round of supplies for this project have been ordered, mostly the raw materials but also a few extra's i decided to add, including (for the first time) lighting. ive taken inspiration from Strobez area 88 builds and thought of about trying to add some lighting inside the building and on the tarmac. ive already started drawing up plans on paper for both the hangar and Mc Coys warehouse.
6. July, 13:48
Greg Baker
Oh, baby... sign me up! I'm thinking of trying something similar in 1/700... 1/144 scale will be awesome!
6. July, 13:50
Nils Steyaert
Update 3:

the first part of the raw materials for this build have arrived today. all i need to do is wait for the rest to arrive. i also ordered 2 new airbrush guns as my current one broke yesterday, and it was cheaper to buy 2 new guns then to buy replacement parts for the revell basic airbrush.
22. July, 11:51
Nils Steyaert
Update 3.1:

more parts have arrived. today, the lighting and the railing have arrived. everything i need for the main construction is here, all thats left is to wait for the extra detail parts.

ok, im calling this project done, although i ran into a big problem on the final stretch.
the matt coating i applied at the end really smudged up the canopy, in the last picture, you can see that im trying to fix it with a few layers of Humbrol Clear.

Update:

earlier this week i installed the landinggear and the engine nozzle, then i sprayed on a light coat of varnish to prepare the surface for decals.

today, i just finished putting on the decals, it looked a little bald so i added some stenciling i had leftover from a Revell Alpha Jet. pictures will be posted as soon as the clear varnish is dryed up.

at this point, its pretty much finished.
26. May, 09:22
Greg Baker
What do you think of this kit? I had a thought to add a couple of Mirages to my list of A88 projects. It looks pretty good considering what you've done with it.
26. May, 10:05
Nils Steyaert
Greg, its not that bad, its basicly a rebox of the older Minicraft kit. simple, but still pretty decent. also comes with various weapons options.

Nice project! I'm looking forward to this build, as this version of the A321 is also on my list of future projects...
9. May, 10:35
Treehugger
If you are careful, you should be able to use a toothpick to gently scratch away the paint from the canopy. If you scratch the plastic too hard, it will make a, well, a scratch.
12. May, 14:38
Nils Steyaert
yeah, i tried that, didnt work too good, i used maskol to mask of the windows, but the panellines on it are so shallow that it was hard to get it right. im going to use a windshield decal to fix this, i dont want to risk making things worse.
12. May, 15:08
Greg Baker
Yeah, the windscreens are tough. It doesn't look too bad though, but I'm watching to see what you do with the decal to save it. Speaking of decals... too bad you didn't start this project earlier... I might've asked you for the Lufthansa decals from this kit. The A300 ones I used on my B707 were a bit too big, but these look like just the right size. Oh, well.
12. May, 15:43

Tip: The landing gear part is a little weird. You can't realistically glue on the wheels as separate parts, after gluing all the other stuff together, there is no room for it, or very difficult.
25. April, 13:23
Treehugger
Haah! Photo 3 seem to show the weird looking decal looks like the real thing (white bar with black dot on end).

It also looks like maybe I got the color correct on mine. I thought maybe it ought to be darker, but perhaps it is spot on (has to match with the not-that-dark-A400M decals).

Update:

with the first A400M for Belgium now in the paintshop, i have started looking into serials & roundel decal designing to supplement the kit's stencil decals.

https://twitter.com/AirbusDefence/status/1253692736764612609

from what i can see, the font for the titles and serials would be an "RAF Type 1 font" (RAF_PW_ATH, download here bobsyouruncle.net/font-types.htm )

work is expected to begin as soon as my workbench is clear, should be soon. for the moment, im using the Luxembourg A400 as a reference, as this one will be operated in cooperation with the BAF.
25. April, 09:21
Nils Steyaert
update:

after seeing the new video from airbus, showing the completed Belgian A400M, ive noticed my design for the "Belgian Air Force" titles on the forward fuselage were too big. so i had to shrink them by another 5mm, making them about 32mm long in 144 scale, and those seem to fit alright. serials for the tail seem to be okay to me.

for paint, if i can believe the info from official documents, all A400M's are painted in FS 36173 (which converts to Humbrol 156).

Congrats on your 1:1 scale baby boy, and don't worry he will be at your side building kits before you know it. My daughter who is now 15 has a boyfriend and he is so interested in the hobby I gave him one of my 1/48 Hasegawa Bf 109F's and you should have seen his face light up. He can't get enough of modeling but my daughter is not very happy with me. :)

Please note that DACO do (or did) a range a paint as well. The Seaking tan and green are available: dacoproducts.com/KDCD48.php for the colour references. The stuff is pretty hard to come by depending on where you live. Verschooten in Antwerp used to do quite a good selection of DACO paints but I don't know what their stock is now.
