Erik De Smet Enjoy your next "egg" plane
25. November 2018 at 17:55:18
Ricardo Reis I love them, very relaxed builds.
25. November 2018 at 23:56:24
Nathan Dempsey I was just checking this kit out on one of my web-shops. Yours looks really cool! Does it come with a pilot?
22. December 2018 at 01:09:36
Ricardo Reis Yes, it does, although I am not using it.

david Well done. Love these planes, but this is not an egg plane. This is a cartoon plane.
13. January at 09:36:43
Ricardo Reis Yes, but they are very nice to build and test some extreme weathering techniques.

Ricardo Reis Thanks mates, it did take me some time with the putty and sanding sticks, but nothing extremely bad, I should say. Let's see how this progresses now.

Bart Goesaert Nice start, I think for the manufacturers it's not always easy to choose the attachment points on a part. A lot of factors come into play that determine the quality of the mold (I sometimes design molded parts IRL, and it's sometimes a bit of giving and taking to get it right...)
04. October 2018 at 08:40:29
Hugo Oliveira Vou acompanhar. O kit parece muito bom a julgar pelas imagens.
04. October 2018 at 11:38:35
Ricardo Reis @Bart, for sure, but, nevertheless, in this case it generates points where cleanup is very difficult, if not impossible; @Hugo, sim, estou a gostar, à parte da limpeza de alguns seam lines e sprue gates, mas é um modelo lindíssimo.

Rui S Um kit sem linhas de molde não é um kit. Pelo menos eu não conheço.
Finalmente um blindado 1/35 que embora não seja de minha época preferida, tenho a certeza que vamos ter um belo modelo para apreciar Ricardo.

28. December 2018 at 07:46:21
Ricardo Reis Thanks Mates. :)

@Rui S, obrigado. De facto são comuns, mas no Mark I da Takom não me lembro de ter nem metade do trabalho de limpeza.
28. December 2018 at 10:08:23
Rui S Pois, entendo, os moldes mais antigos (o que não sera o caso) são normalmente piores.

24. March 2018 at 09:30:28
Ricardo Reis No. In the kit, they are slightly bent upwards. When I tried to correct them to stay straight, I ruined them... :(

Treehugger Btw, if you find the Tamiya putty to be disgusting, I can recommend the Vallejo putty. The one with an applicator tip on tube, but not the putty-in-a-paint-bottle variant. Best sanded with coarse + fine sanding stick, or a fine metal file. A fine Tamiya metal file actually makes the surface smooth I have noticed. Vallejo putty can also be smeared out and cleaned up with a moist cotton bud. Sometimes, cutting into dried putty with a scalpel blade is better than sanding, as it is easier and take less time, especially when having excess putty to sand down.
15. November 2018 at 12:32:46
Ricardo Reis Thank you for the tips @Treehugger. I hate the Tamiya putty, because it sometimes flakes under the sanding paper or stick, but it does bond very firmly in place. I also use (and love) Tamiya Primer, but it only works for very small gaps or depressions because it is liquid. For acrylic putty I use the Perfect Plastic Putty, from Deluxe Materials, generaly in areas where I just have to insert putty and then swipe with a wet (water) cotton bud. I'll have to try Vallejo on of these days...
15. November 2018 at 12:38:06
Holger Kranich Well i recommend this stuff for puttying. Just apply with a moist brush. No sanding, no crying. Excess stuff can easily removed with a wet finger. Let it dry for a couple of minutes and that Task is completed.

Daniel Klink aha very interesting Holger! Didn't knew this before. I use the Vallejo 401 Plastic putty.
Could be an alternative
15. November 2018 at 13:14:55
Holger Kranich I always hated puttying. With LGS its a pleasure now... ;)
15. November 2018 at 13:19:21
Daniel Klink Ok, i will give it a try thanks
15. November 2018 at 13:27:53
Sören Reifert LGS sounds interesting and I have to check it.
But this stuff sounds a lot like Vallejo putty in the tubem which you can also easily remove with water and dont need to sand it.
15. November 2018 at 13:32:44
Ricardo Reis @Holger, yes, I have that one and will use it now on this build. Love it. :)

Martin Oostrom Incredible paintwork Ricardo, very good.
I don't know if it's possible, but I think the black decals on the fuselage could use a bit of fading. The whole plane is (perfectly?) shaded and faded around the panels, and the black looks too uniform on the pictures.

Wish I could paint like that…..
24. June 2018 at 07:45:39
Michael Hickey I think she looks sweeet, you could always say that the markings are fresh, they don't repaint the whole plane when putting on new markings, but Martin does have a point, your call of course Ricardo. Well done
24. June 2018 at 07:49:03
Ricardo Reis Yes, I think you are both correct. The thing is these CAG planes are always clean. I would say the markings are OK, but the gray color got a bit too beaten...
24. June 2018 at 10:24:31
JOHN THOMAS Nice work
24. June 2018 at 12:55:10
Roge Lamas Fantastic job with this nightmare! Today I worked with the air intakes and I used a lot of glue and putty :D. I like so much your work with the joins. I can't see any imperfection on it.

Sören Reifert Fantastic job Ricardo.
What do you think about the kit itself?
Can you recommend it to buy?
13. November 2018 at 07:10:21
Ricardo Reis Thanks all. @Roge, I did loose a lot of detail on the grids that exist on the intakes, they can now barely be seen; @Sören, the parts are beautifully detailed, but I did not enjoy building this kit, because of awful fit throughout. Worse parts were the intakes and the nose (including windshield and HUD), they are not good at all. I can not recommend this kit.
13. November 2018 at 07:34:47
Sören Reifert Thx a lot for the honest answer Ricardo.
Then it is again waiting for a better F/A-18 A/B/C kit.... :(
