Kerry Cox I hope that is in a display case where every one can see it. As it's a beautiful job you have done here. :)
15. February at 20:02:09
Katya Hodgson No display case, just a dusty shelf in my tiny cramped room like all my other models...
15. February at 21:12:20
Donald Dickson II Regardless of where it is it will stand out. :)
15. February at 22:01:32
Kerry Cox Katya. I noticed you have a good collection. ;)
15. February at 23:06:16
Katya Hodgson Yes, although I have become sadly dissatisfied with my older models, Wish I could magically repaint them up to my current standard.
16. February at 07:21:40
Kerry Cox Do you have access to Mr Muscle oven cleaner in a spray can. ? As that is amazing paint stripper.
There are a number of ways to remove old paint so that you can 'reclaim' older models.
Better than tossing them or wondering what to do with them.
I will look around and see what I can find for you that you may like. ;)
OR. Even ask the members here if they can help you in accessing something.
16. February at 07:30:20
Katya Hodgson It would destroy the decals and probably leak into the cockpit and destroy that too.

I'll probably just buy new versions of the kits in the future...
16. February at 07:51:04
Arne Greve Hi Katya, nice work, beautiful painting. I like the JASDF-Fighter!

Hans Robben Nice progress, now the magic moment when the last masking tape comes off! I think this F104 doesn't have that many markings: try a F4 with full stencils :o [img1]
13. February at 21:01:56
Calvin Gifford Be still my heart! An absolute stunner of a Starfighter!! Splendid - the F-104 is also my all-time favorite jet! ^_^
13. February at 21:07:43
Katya Hodgson New shelves are not up yet, so i'll have to shuffle my current models around a bit to make room for this.

And I know it's irrational (the F-80 for example was fine) but I have this lingering fear in the back of my mind that when I try and spray the clear coat to seal the decals they will all blow off...
14. February at 06:57:52
Patrick Hagelstein Are you using a rattle can for the clear coat? Spraying it using your airbrush should work just fine! Did you use any decal softener while applying the decals? If so, the decals formed themselves after the nooks and crannies on the model itself and have a decent tooth to hold on. Should all be right... :)
14. February at 14:55:29
Katya Hodgson I used an airbrush of course, the only time I ever tried a rattlecan for clear was back when I used to brush paint enamel, and it ended very badly. I spray Pledge floor gloss through my airbrush nowadays.

I did use Humbrol decal solution on them, and i'm happy to say they all stayed on just fine, and I already uploaded an album of the finished model. :)

14. February at 18:17:25
Katya Hodgson Thanks, the red seems to be one of the best of the Vallejo paints I have used. :)

Nikolaos Kouzinis Bravo Katya. Gives you the heavy metal sense

Katya Hodgson Heavy metal sense?
8. February at 13:59:45
Rick Corts O.O Great Work Katya! You're so fast I miss most of your builds...
8. February at 16:46:41
Katya Hodgson Well, I didn't actually post any "in-progress" pictures of this one, since I was speeding along with it. But thank you! I just wish all my builds were this easy...
8. February at 17:11:36
Richmond These are excellent results - especially for someone who has only recently started out their airbrushing journey. Love how you have blended the tones - very impressive - wonderful work.
8. February at 21:27:21
Katya Hodgson It was sort of accidental...
9. February at 07:20:24
Richmond Really...I think you are underselling yourself.
9. February at 12:10:28
Katya Hodgson No really, I had no way of masking off parts to paint the camo, so I just turned the pressure down and sprayed it, really hoping that I wouldn't have too much overspray. I have never done a tank camo with an airbrush before (I don't typically do camo for tanks) and only ever done camo once before with it, which had a lot of overspray problems...

Daniel Klink First!!! ;)
Indeed! For a 2 days build abrillant result! I see the small goodies with the tracks and the weathering techniques done superbly here..
But somehow i like the look of the Type 74 more. But thats just a question of taste..
7. February at 12:54:03
Katya Hodgson Yay! Thank you very much. ^-^

I just wish I had better tracks for the Type 74, the rubber band ones are nice and easy but you don't get the distinctive track sag...
7. February at 12:57:52
Calvin Gifford Lovely work!!
7. February at 19:26:49
Katya Hodgson Thank you! I think this is possibly my best tank yet.
8. February at 08:07:53
8. February at 22:26:01
Katya Hodgson Just annoyed because the tracks on one side are sort of bent out towards the bottom, I assume the suspension parts moves whilst gluing since they only had a small attachment point, either that or it happened when I was putting the tracks on.
