Arash Zakeri Great one

Enrico Chiambalero Great job!!! What about the metal finish? Which paint did you use?
21. November 2016, 19:49
Spanjaard thanks Arash and Enrico. everything was done with Alclad, i should have use more clear to protect it and the weathering would have been lighter. but all in all, i am happy with the final result. i did learn quite a low with this one.

Spanjaard Enrico, i forgot to say that more details about the alclad used can be found in the WIP album, if you are interested. basically is aluminium, airframa aluminium and some touches of manesium and steel. with a base of alclad black primer. alclad works really well, but it is quite unforgiving with surface imperfections. anything there that is not properly sanded and polished will be a lot more visible when you use alclad over it.

Enrico Chiambalero Thanks Spanjaard. I'm planning to do some trials with Alclad, thanks for the explanation. Have you ever tried also AK true metal?
22. November 2016, 08:34
Spanjaard no, never tried AK true metal yet.
i have heard that metal color from Vallejo can be as good as alclad (except the Chrome), with the advantage of being acrylic. but i have not tested them myself.
if you use alclad, my suggestion is to get a good mask, not one of those for dust, but one for chemicals.

Vince Venezuela Splendid ! Impressed by all the details!
24. November 2016, 07:31
Spanjaard thanks Vince. cockpit from aires, have really nice details. but you need to sand a lot to get it to fit correctly. i did not sand enough and then fit of the fuselage halves was not as good as it was without the cockpit inside. for what i am seeing, that is the usual with Aires. good detail, but you have to sand everything a lot. and then, keep sanding a lot more.
