Will Dixon Very nice!

Thomas Bischoff love it! Homemade decals?
31. December 2018 at 15:01:36
Felipe Belalcazar Cheers thank you guys! Thomas, the 62 is standard usaac number decal and the rest is masked/painted. I worked hard to find references showing the stearman without cocardes (because i don't have any haha!) the 'metal' parts were primed black and the 'cloth' was primed white, then vallejo aluminium for the silver and tamiya acrylics for the rest. Engines was done in vallejo jet exhaust. Thank you! Im sad i couldnt rig it... maybe for the next one.

Felipe Belalcazar Thanks! I used the set by Aztec, the cammo c2 is hasegawa (awesome kit) the gray one is italeri (terrible kit) i have a few leftover from the decal set so i'm hunting for a couple more hasegawa kits. Cheers!

Ben M Looking great!
24. December 2018 at 01:01:50
Felipe Belalcazar thank you - it was a challenge to wrap my hear around negative space to mask for the colour stripes. nevermind keeping the paint at the right thickness!
24. December 2018 at 01:04:42
Greg Baker Oh cool! I just did one of these in 1/144... so I wanna see how the big boys play! I need to find a 150 in 1/72...
24. December 2018 at 04:17:52
Ben M I'm fond of 172s because a friend let me take the controls in one once. Yes, I liked how you masked off all the stripes.
24. December 2018 at 15:32:14
Greg Baker Yeah, that masking sure isn't easy, even in 1/48 scale. They look great though!
24. December 2018 at 16:11:14
Felipe Belalcazar Thanks guys, i cant imagine doing these in 1/144 - 48scale interiors are anstruggle for me sometimes! I also have a soft spot for the skyhawk and aerobat as i did my rec and priv license courses in these :) crosswind landings in late fall on a 152 are a thrill hahaha

Greg Baker Try sticking a tiny DC motor into a 1/144 Cessna... that'll be enough to give you fits! They're neat little planes though.

Gordon Sørensen Great painting Felipe! What kind of tape did you use? The paint looks clean and no bleedthroughs...
25. December 2018 at 00:35:41
JOHN THOMAS Very cool
25. December 2018 at 01:25:55
Felipe Belalcazar thank you all, and thank you @Gordon, I got my airbrush back in March (the Royal Wedding weekend... when the mrs was distracted I snuck it in haha)and since then I've been using Tamiya paints thinned with their XA20. recently I've also started using AK for my primary colours - i like AK but tamiya is where its at for me. I used to use rattlecans so im very paranoid about the masking and usually I spray a thin coat of clear gloss on to the masking before doing the colours to prvent bleeding as much as possible. always learning new tricks - masking is my least favourite part (masking clear part doubly so!) the airbrush sure is a learning curve, i have yet to get an even finish with 3-4 coats.... gah!
