Germen V Hi guys, jusrt added some new pics from the build, and to be honest I've had it with tiger stripes.
But, for all of you who want to build this one also, the decalling. To be honest I bought the kit 2 times because I also have the decals for the 'Battle of Britan' one/ So don't do what is described on the plan. I started like that and it didn't work out, restarted with the second set of decals from the second set.

How I did now, well you can see a little clue on the last picture.

Tsis is the way it did it.first paint the front edges from the tail, canards and air intakes with Revell Enamel 374.
Start with the decals on the tail, these you can fully place in one pieces, but cut of the grey part, don't throw this away because you need the yellow formation lights.

Next put the decals on the wings, I started from the wingtip inwards an i cutted them just afther each 'scratch' marking and try to remove as much clear film as possible.

Now you start to connect the stripes on the wings, from one to another, but cut out stripe by stripe, remove the clear film. This makes it possible for you ta abjust the decals a little bit to make it fit. Don't worry with little ornga gap between, when everything is dry, you touch up with black paint/ So put all the stripes on form the bacj till just on the front wingroot.

Now flip the model, and here you start with the decals around the front nose bay, also try to remove as much as possible clear film. Then proceed towards to nose. Then work your way towards the rear of the plane, As you can see on the picture from the underside, i didn't use certain narrow decals, e.g. the place for rocket, the hinges, and the outher pylons. Again these will be brush painted to match the stripes.

By removing the clear film, you have pro and cons.

The pro is that you have al smaller more manageble bits and with each stripe you place you can dajust little by little..
The con is that it takes a h$ll of a lot of time.

Hope this is any usefull tor those interested.

Donald Dickson II Given my experience with the stripes on the 1/32 Tornado Tiger Meet plane I did, I would have to agree with you. Remove the clear film between the stripes. As good as the decals are, they just plain fit better if you have that bit of extra wag room

Germen V Ok,

What have i started?

As a X-Mass gift, my girlfriends dad, who is a die hard table top gamer, gave me the Warhammer 40K starter box 'Dark Vengeance'. When i opened it, there was a envelop inside with a voucher, worth €150 at a nearby game store and a letter.

My dear son in law,

Instead of buying you another static model kit for your giant stash i dicided to offer you a Challenge.
This bow contaisn the basics that you need to play a tabletop gmae, you get the compact rules, rulers, templates, dices and 2 small armies. You can chose one off the two or if you wish you can chose any Warhammer 40K army that you like. I will know in time what you have chosen because i have spies.

Now for the rules for this challenge named 'Call To Arms'

- The time frame for this Challenge is 6 months.
- Chose a 40K army
- Paint your armie realistic, use your skills and learn new ones.
- On 25th of June i call you out for a battle, coordinates will follow.

So, get crackin', I want you to pick up your brushes and weapons and battle for YOUR future and OUR good cause. LOL

Michel The Slicer.

gorbygould Your girlfriends dad must like you a lot!
07. January at 17:31:10
Maciej Bellos Actually he hates your guts... He wants a) to det you really frustrated with painting all those tiny figures and b) to kick your butt in the ensuing battle. Or this is simply a test for you, to see if you are worthy of his daughter. :-D Eitherway you are in a bit of trouble even if nothing of the above is true... You have to paint those tiny figures...
07. January at 19:12:17
gorbygould Good point Maciej,

John Dunbar Your girlfriends dad is awesome!! :) Thanks for sharing!!

Germen V Well for the moment i have 39 figures of about 5cm and two medium ons from 10cm. And i'm planning to buy another 10 of the 5 cm height, a tank and two large creature something like 10 by 10 by 15 cm. I chose this army in the first place, because it is one of the 2 in the starter box, it's a pretty straight foward strong amry and ther color scheme is quite 'easy, i can start airbrushing the red base coat and a few highlights very fast. They need at least a basic paint scheme to play with because apparently there are guys out there that don't want to play with unpainted figures. For the rest i have six months to finish the job. It's quit hard starting painting figures but i think that once you get the hang of it. It are other techniques and i don't have to paint all my planned 52 figures.

For the moment my army plan goes as following :

1 HQ Aspiring Champion
3 squads (1x10 infantry, 1x10 cultist, 1x 6 elite)
2 Walkers
2 Heavy Supports

Total of 31 units.

The only thing i'm concerned about are the rules, the general rules, without the 'Fluf' a wopping 200 page, although with a lot of pictures, drawing, examples. And then you have to buy the codex for your army. But i'm already picking up a lot on you tube.

And then it's battling,. So in the official Games Workshop-store, downtown Brussels i can go play almost every day, the downside the slow public transport. The other shop, where i got the voucher form there they play only wednesday afternoon (so many school kids, lot of buzz) or saterday during the whole day (where probably 85% of the time my challenger will be present. Hummm.

07. January at 21:31:42
Germen V Well we are now 5 weeks further, the painting gets along very good, i'm starting to get the hang of it. It is very different than painting and detailing an aircraft but i think it will sharpen my skills with the paint brush.
Concerning Game play, well i played a few and surprisingly I start to pick up it very fast. So let's see, still 14 weeks till the due date of this challenge.
