After spending way too much time on T-35 and F-104J, decided to go for something simple and quick. It went well enough that I made the mistake of ordering some PE and a metal gun barrel.

I'm quite happy with how opening the grilles went - razor saw and hobby knife were all that was needed and the cut looks clean enough.

Grilles look good, could use some additional soviet boot treatment 😉

Thanks Slavo and Oliver. The Microdesign PE is not bad at all! I like how it improves the model and now wish I went with one more extension set.

After the last comment, I ordered a second set for the mudguards. They are a bit tricky to bend into the right shape, but I think it looks quite ok. There was some additional details on the plastic that is now missing, let's see how it can get recreated.

48-scale an all different world - provided the model is not an upscaled 72 like some Zvezda kits... 😄

I hope you are enjoying this as much as I did, the seat definitely looks like it! You really worked out all those beautiful details with the wash & paint-job 👍

Excellent work so far. I have Eduard's Bundesfighter version of the F-104 and I am looking forward to getting it on my bench. I feel bad for the pilot of that machine as he has to strap himself into the ejection seat with a cargo net. ?

Thank you, Clifford! I was afraid to even start, it never turned to my liking before. Guess I got lucky this time! Not visible in the photo yet: some specks of bronze and an oil wash. Will come in th final photos.
In the meantime, I turned to the landing gear, which might still see a wash of paint remover.

BTW, love your Tornado, looks awesome

Looks great with all that dirt!
Nice idea to damage/remove some of the skirts so you can see the work you've done on the wheels. 👍
20. July, 07:21
Palo M
Thank you Guy and WhiteGlint! I think removal of the side skirts is not something seen in the field, except for the removal of rear skirts in later versions to avoid build-up of mud. However I agree, it's the only way to show some of the wheels, that would be invisible otherwise - and it does look more interesting, dare I say.

You could use any spare decal sheet you have in your stash and your imagination to finish your egg. Have a look at my alphaj-egg album
11. July, 11:03

Thanks! Your F-16 looks great and I found out from your list that there exists a F-104 egg, will need to obtain one 🙂
11. July, 12:03
Palo M
"painted" the whole plane with the decal solution, as it has big splotches of different glossiness. Will repaint one last time all over with airframe aluminium and that's how it's going to look. I might go once more over leftover decals to find something to give it a bit of color, but I think it won't be too successful.
11. July, 13:59
Palo M
I'm calling this one done, because after twice repainting it completely due to the paint reacting with anything that touched the model, it did it at the very end again, when wiping off weathering oils. I will never again use that paint.
11. July, 18:36
Erik De Smet
There are actually two different makes of F104 egg planes : Mine are from Freedom Model Kits, but there is also a kit from AFV Club. Both have two versions (single seater and twoseater ) in one box.

Syringe needles are tight! 👍 I remember buying those in the 90´s in med-stores, me a young man then, the vendor looking at me like I´d be running a meth-lab or something, clearly doubting my claims the´re useful for scale modeling... 😄

Looking good, albeit the "one burst leader & wingman kill" look also had it´s merit...😉

Well, putting them there was super easy, barely an inconvenience. And looks better than before.

Cockpit lacks any details, so leaves a lot open to scratch building. Decals for the cockpit are disappointing - lots of clear decal along all sides, which needs to be removed as it doesn't fit otherwise. Colors don't fully align so there are lines along the edges.

The instrument panel is the worst part - parts of the decal will be outside of the panel (so best to cut them off) and half of the instrument panel will not be covered. Maybe I should paint it by hand instead, but given how much will be visible, it's not worth it. Not an auspicious start.

The manual is also hard to parse leaving details to interpretation. It also asks for 10g in the nose, but there is very little space. I'll try to put in liquid gravity, but not sure if it will be enough.

Overall, model looks simple, hope the surface details make up for what I've seen so far.

Love this Tamiya kit. Keeping it mostly OOB, with a few drilled out lights. Replaced turret bars with wires to give it a more natural look.
If you are looking for a nice looking and easy to put together model, you could do much worse than this one. Most of my models take many weeks, this might be put together in 2 days - did tracks and wheels yesterday in about 2 hours, almost completed the construction in maybe 3 hours today.
22. January, 19:57
Slavo Hazucha
Watching this, not least because I have an idea to try something involving a 48-scale tank (and most probably this particular one)

Looks like a really nice kit, not resisting the attempts to get build and thus leaving ample time & opportunity to focus on making it really nice!😉
22. January, 20:35
Palo M
Thanks! Of course, first pieces are now consumed by the carpet monster, so now I'm stuck on deciding whether to call it battle damage, or to scratch build replacements...
22. January, 21:43

As I finished construction today, the little T-55 received a layer of black primer and various rust tones from MRP. It might currently look like an autumn prop, it's only a temporary stage.

Very nice work on the camo - is it all freehand? The colors look spot on, and the way it´s put on also seems very much in line with middle-east field camo application - good job!

Looking forward to the chipping and dusting results - so far it seems we have another runner-up for your best tank finish 👍

The model looks pretty cool as well - all the neat details, surface finishes and nothing really betrays it´s actually not 35-scale.
29. January, 11:35
Palo M
Added a few pictures of the completed tank. I might dust the machine gun a bit more, otherwise it's done. Inspiration came from this piece:

Never enough dust & stuff on these - good stuff, would not know it´s 48-scale if I did not actually know 🙂 Particularly the tracks & wheels look very convincing, with the weathering & all - really nice job there 👍

Perhaps you could put it next to a 35-scale just to see how much smaller exactly it is?
15. February, 17:13
Palo M
Thanks, Slavo! This was the only 1:48 tank I had in my stash, so the next one will definitely be 1:35. There are too many in the stash anyway! But as a distraction, I started the KP Mig-19, just posted first pictures. It's not going that well so far, so I'm curious how it will turn out 🙂
