James C Nice looking Mustang. That checker decal on the nose looks like it was a difficult job to get into position.

Spanjaard thanks James. yes, that was nto easy. i cut the big decal in several pieces, to make it easier. but getting them to match was also tricky.
the decal is really thin, which is great because it looks better once done. but the problem is that if you handle it too much, it can break too
in fact, some days after i finished, a tiny bit of it dissapeared. just on white square and a blue one. i had to repair the damage with with paint. it is not perfect, but it will have to do.

Fluorescent vs LED Tubes?
Hi all, I am planning my new modelling area and I was wondering about the lighting. I always loved fluorescent tubes but now maybe it is time for LED tubes... Anybody has changed from fluorescent to LED? What is your view of it? Any recommendations?
25. February at 08:15:21 Share
Olivier Well where I live, concern is growing about the LEDs mainly the blue light they can produce.
When located far from the eyes they are ok, but on a work bench I would not be so sure.
25. February at 08:51:12
Frank J I personally use an Ikea ledstrip with color-changing functionality just for this reason as a worklight, it really helps being able to more the color more towards yellow-white or even into different colors to correctly verify coverage and shapes.

If you buy proper warm white LEDs you will also have much less of an issue with blue coloration (cold white).
25. February at 09:29:31
Hans Robben I prefer daylight (5500K) light sources. I got two LED desk lamps and overhead 2 fluorecent tubes, all of them 5500K. Makes judging colors much easier. As far as the change: as long as you select the color temperature of the LED's to your liking there shouldn't be any difference between fluorecent and LED apart from price and reliability.

Spanjaard thanks for the info!

Rui S Thx for sharing 8)

Nathan Dempsey I worked in a print shop for many years. The entire building including all the office areas was as lit in 5500K to make sure all printed material was viewed in the same light. Later they had to light a separate building this way too. The marketing dept kept saying the prints looked different than it did in the print shop.

Spanjaard thanks!

Ingmar Stöhr I recently switched to LED. If you want to do any painting in that light don't use SOME white LEDs. Look for high CRI LEDs. CRI > 90 or even 95. Even for fluorescent bulbs there are special daylight variants. Just looking for color temperature is not enough!

Spanjaard Thanks Ingmar

Spanjaard not much time for modelling lately, in fact the last pictures were taken more than a month ago :(
i think I am over-complicating this project......
17. December 2018 at 21:13:48
Martin Oostrom Not really serious:
A bit more serious:

Dutch Wow! Spanjaard, You definitely invested more time, effort and skill into your P-38J #5000 kit than I did, and your results are stunning. Your level of detail is outstanding for this crude kit. Just your cockpit canopy alone is worth learning from. I like the weathering and added detail, like gun barrels, wire aerials, etc. I still have to make my canopy frames, which I think I will do with silver stripe decal. I do not think I will add gun barrels or aerials. But I like your work! Great job! R/ Dutch
