Sören Reifert Great work so far
17. July at 13:59:52
Timothy Heimer Hey! I got one too! LOL How's the kit and PE working, any issues yet?
17. July at 18:08:32
Dennis Thanks a lot already, guys! It means a lot to me! :D

Timothy: the PE has it's usual challenges in fiddly-bit-stuff while the kit fors like a glove! It's simply marvellous!

Unless the weather keeps getting hotter and more humid, I hope to have the basic paint job and decals done by the weekend so I can start weathering! :)
17. July at 23:19:40
James C Looking very good.
17. July at 23:25:56
Dennis Aaaaaaand it's finished - while I wasn't too happy with the combination of blackbasing and postshading, I think that oils and weathering really pulled the paintjob together.

All in all a very enjoyable kit and I feel like I managed to improve somewhat in my workmanship. :)
26. August at 14:05:13
Timothy Heimer That's great that you've improved your skills on this because it does look good!! Nice work! I hope mine looks as good.

Dennis Thanks so much, Konrad and Martin! Got the weapons built, will prime and paint them in 2018, decal it all up and should yet finish during my vacation :D
31. December 2017 at 14:49:40
Dennis So, I dare to call that one finished! The kit itself has been an absolute pleasure to build save for some verrrryyyyyy few things, that were a bit ambigous in the manual, some fiddly things and some decals that are bigger than on the decal instructions.

All in all I cursed far, far less than with my late Revell kits and I already decided on getting another Academy F-4 in the near future!

Worksmanship-wise: it's a bit mixed. I managed to damage the chevron-decal (but think I fixed it alright), had some major airbrushing hiccups - could have been better, but it still has been a ton of fun AND I think I managed to rectify all major errors rather nicely so I am really proud right now.

Next kit will be a smaller / faster / quicker one, though :D
13. January at 14:51:55
Konrad Limmer Wow that looks really fantastic! Great Job on this spook .
13. January at 16:14:13
Spanjaard really nice, good reason to be proud. and very nice modelling corner by the way.
13. January at 19:42:14
Dennis Thanks so much, Konrad and Spanjaard! It means a lot to me to hear that from you guys! :D
13. January at 20:38:02

Martin Oostrom Nice result.
You better get started on dios as well. It's hard, but.... your models will be even better and then you put them on a crappy first ever dio? It's better to evolve both skills simultaneously ;)
13. April at 19:13:00
Rene Scheiblich I know what you mean Dennis, I'm sort of in the same boat (though not as advanced :S ). Started with brush painting revell stuff too. It was the easiest-to-get stuff :D

To me the whole issue of building dios is sort of intimidating. There's so much to it.
But what you're saying makes sense Martin :)
13. April at 19:48:52
Martin Oostrom Try, fail, try again. Just like building a model for the first time, or airbrushing :D
13. April at 20:05:10
Spanjaard when i started, revel was not the easiest... was the only :P
you can start with very simple models.... a airfield tarmac, a bit of grass on a corner, a nice fighter or chopper... voilá, first dio :)
13. April at 20:05:10
Rene Scheiblich I might just try that. Starting with something really simple like spanjaard suggested. Plaster and paint should suffice for a runway :D Missing a plane with extended landing gear though :P
14. April at 18:36:03
Martin Oostrom Take plaster and some brown paint. Mix and sculpt. Some shading and dirtying it up and voila, a Panther in the mud.
14. April at 18:58:04
Rene Scheiblich I'm not the Panther builder. ;) just hijacking :D
14. April at 19:17:00
Martin Oostrom Naughty you. I knew that of course, ahem, I could have known.

Spanjaard i am in :) curious about this one. nice blue color :)
26. January at 08:40:50
Dennis Yeah, isn't that gorgeous? I am positively in love with that one, too! :D

The kit itself is neat, it's mabye less than 50 parts, 30+ years old and you still can throw some glue into the package, give it a shake and a completed plane falls out. Gotta love Tamiya in that regard! :D
26. January at 09:07:02
Spanjaard indeed :)
26. January at 09:52:31
Miro Herold Nice Aotake colour, but the instrument panel should be painted in interior colour.
26. January at 14:11:09
Dennis According to the instructions, the instrument panel is metallic blue, too. I was wondering if it's actually any different, but I like it better that way. :)
26. January at 14:41:28
Dennis That said: some quick googling shows every A6M cockpit painted in a "regular" greenish color, where the Tamiya instructions clearly state "metallic blue-green" (actually metallic blue X-13). Did that switch at some point in the war?

I don't mind, since I am not aiming for historical accuracy here, but it leaves me wondering...
26. January at 14:45:18
Dennis Checked some Instructions of Tamiya kits that are not as old (the A6M3 here is from the 80s) and there the cockpits are painted in cockpit green, thusly: the instructions are simply wrong. The more you know! :)
26. January at 15:03:22
Spanjaard as long as you like it :)
26. January at 16:23:19
Dennis Ah, I'm fine! It *is* gorgeous and a 14€-kit, can still improve on that and want to build an A6M2 at some point anyway :)

(saving it now is nigh impossible too, or at least far too much effort)
26. January at 16:37:30
Spanjaard I have the Tamiya A6M2 in my stash, plus some resin etc.... i am sure will be a great fun. i just do not have a clue when :D
26. January at 23:03:26
Dennis Haha yeah, I totally understand - I want vacation again! xD
