Carsten Gurk I just received a pair of these as well - looks great, a nice build
19. August at 16:51:59
Daniel Thank you guys, I am looking forward to seeing yours built
@Nathan: That is so awesome to have a good shop to go to, and a rarity nowadays, over here they all closed or went online-only. A shame, but I guess we have ourselves to blame in the end...
19. August at 18:07:15
Jos Jansen Daniel, you have made a breathtaking Kfir ... such beautiful natural looking colors, fantastic :)! What kind of matt coat did you use ...?
19. August at 19:06:09
Daniel Thank you for the kind words Jos, I used mr.color gx super clear, after trying a lot of different flat coats and never being satisfied this one finally delivered
19. August at 20:07:02
Jos Jansen Okay thx Daniel...I use a mix from Hataka, 1 part Matt Lacquer Clear Coat and 1 part Satin Lacquer Clear Coat...this give a superb natural look!
19. August at 20:54:27
Daniel Sounds good and your results certainly speak for themselves Jos. I also did a flat-gloss mix for my j-11, which is pretty shiny in RL, but I'll further experiment for different aircraft. This one is very matt, probably more than the original, but I like that on a desert camo.
20. August at 16:53:17

Daniel Thx! absolutely, its one of the most fun kits I've build so far
9. August at 22:59:20
Slavo Hazucha Great amount of right judgement on the weathering Daniel, looks spot on. I also very much like the camo colors, particularly the brown has the correct 'orange' touch which is seen on the pics. Many times this color seems too desaturated on Israeli camo models, here it seems like on the actual photo
10. August at 09:59:15
Clifford Keesler Excellent paint job Daniel.
10. August at 23:04:10
Daniel Thank you very much slavo and clifford, thats the greatest compliment for a modeler if something looks like the photo! I agree, that brown color is not easy to replicate, all the praise goes to AK RC225, they nailed that one.
Today I used some of my trusty oil paints to get some color modulation going, a bit more dark/light variation+ some oil streaks
11. August at 15:21:14

Paul Moore Could you share your secret of the engine discoloration? Very nice!
1. August at 20:58:59
Spanjaard very nice looking Flanker
1. August at 21:39:25
Daniel Many thanks, Paul and spanjaard! The Engines were my main concern in this build, my first real "metal-work" and I really appreciate your positive feedback!

Not much of a secret in doing this I guess...you can really get artistic, because there are so many variations out there!
I used highly diluted paints over a silver base, first copper (revell enamel), than blue and afterwards black (acrylics). always keeping translucent layers and masking off areas that should differ in look. I made fast, perpendicular sweeping motions with the airbrush close to the plastic to get straight lines and no spiderwebbing.

In detail: I sprayed the first segment darker, laid a small metal grid over it as a mask and did the blue. I used liquid mask for the stripes on a blue-ish base in the second segment and darkened it (on the small doors I used liquid mask as well as a first step) The nozzles were made individually for better handling and masking and I tried to variate the coloration on different "panels" on them.
I began very bright and later blended most parts with thinned black to reduce contrast and get a smoky look. After being satisfied with it, I sealed everything with a thin clear lacquer gloss coat and masked everything up. After having the whole model painted I removed the tape and used a black wash and some white oils for the screws on the nozzle.
It is very important to use paints that don't peel off easily while unmasking and to reduce tape stickiness e.g. by first putting it on your sweaty arm :)
I tested that as a first step, otherwise you get a very nasty surprise while "unwrapping" the finished model ;)
2. August at 17:11:28
Paul Moore I have a flanker in my stache and I'll d definitely use your technique. Thank you for the detailed explanation.
3. August at 15:18:14
Paul Moore One last question Daniel .... What colors did you use for the top and bottom of the aircraft? When I was looking for the right colors for the Chinese Air Force Flanker 35, there seemed to be some question about them. Did you just use your best guess or are you confident of the color selection? That's not questioning your selection, I just don't know. Thanks again. It's a beautiful model you've done!
3. August at 15:24:40
Daniel Thanks a lot Paul! really glad to provide some inspiration :)
The top color is dark eggplant grey from ak's real colors range, I am pretty sure this is accurate for the newer J-11Bs as well as russian Su-35 or 34. The underside was a guess to match the reference photos, I used a mix of light ghost grey and light grey FS36495, I believe it was around 50/50.
But from the photos I can tell that there are still some shades and variations of these colors on the different jets, so there is also some freedom for the modeler :)
3. August at 16:24:03
Daniel Many thanks Roland!
4. August at 11:05:59

Daniel So I finished painting and I am doing the decaling now, which works really good, as expected from the cockpit. Stenciling is either hobby boss fantasy or from another J-11 version, doesnt match up with what I see on the references. Also many many mistakes in their decal numbers...So I am trying to match the higher visible ones to what I can identify on the few high res photos I have, the rest is just more or less random to make it look a bit more interesting. But I really like the look of the dark gray with all the red&yellow on it
4. July at 15:33:13
Eelco Gregoire Very cool built Daniel
4. July at 19:24:24
Slavo Hazucha Great progress Daniel - the formation stripes were a good decision IMO, the added contrast adds a highlight. I think you got all the colors in a very good range, looks as it should You´re almost there, some reasonable weathering and you´ll have one fine Flanker on the table!

HB decals are in my experience pleasure to work with, I even did not care to use the usual gloss prep in some areas and still walked away with it without silvering or other problems. I hope you had your fun with the squares over the intakes ;)

They seem to put a variety of random patterns on stencils, in my kit, some looked like an attempt at cyrillic, some were just thin lines (great...), some dotted lines and some even strangely resembled hebrew letters... :) Trumpeter/Hobby Boss should really invest into a proof reader :D
5. July at 08:01:18
Daniel Thanks guys! Yes, Slavo, same experience here with the stencils. I also got about 50 little chinese "No Steps" (or something like that) but would use exactly 4 of them if I followed the instructions ;) I somehow expected HB to do better here, since this jet is from their home country…
Wheathering-wise I am going to hold myself back, because they all look like they are polished waxed and daily - some wash, some streaks and keeping the semi-gloss look
5. July at 19:17:46
James C Looking spectacular Daniel.

Daniel Thanks a lot guys&girls :) Really appreciate your kind words!
@Nathan: Yes thats what I do with my hasegawa A from time to time, always thinking about how glorious it will be... one day ...and than starting something easier ;) But once thats finished it will be time for the D, which is my fav cat version. And if l wait for the AMK release I guess I wont have to hurry :D

9. July at 19:26:26
Daniel Thanks a lot Mark! In hindsight though, I should have kept the deck a bit cleaner - looked interesting on its own but maybe takes a bit too much attention away from the model… but I always have too much fun making things dirty :)

Daniel Thx Michael, the cockpit really is the highlight of this oldtimer kit, a bit of a waste that I am not building it open, but I want to keep the slick hornet lines on this one

Daniel Base painting is done and the shading worked out quite well. Next is to mask+paint the walkways and lighten everything up a bit. including some salt masking
1. June at 12:55:33
James C Looking awesome!
I also don't like displaying the canopy open for the same reason.
1. June at 18:14:20
Slavo Hazucha Proper seasoning with salt & spices separates the master from the ordinary folk ;) Upper fuselage job looks top notch, looking forward to watch this story towards the grand finale!
1. June at 19:34:33
Daniel Well, I did not add too many spices, mainly prepared it in a nice salt crust ;) Now I ll let it rest until tomorrow. Thx for the kind words James and Slavo!
1. June at 20:58:28
Daniel Decals went on nicely, now its time for some subtle weathering ;)
4. June at 18:03:40
Daniel Quick heads up on the end of this project: Disaster struck. I really wanted to start weathering and after not getting the clear coat to dry properly after over a week with sun, hairdryer and so on I went on to the oven drying therapy (which in my defence already worked nicely 2 times) Something went terribly wrong, plastic went soft and she went all salvador dali. As you can imagine, maximum grief over here... RIP little hornet, victim to a stupid modeler so shortly before she was ready to begin her life on the happy hornet shelf!
9. June at 22:45:41
Slavo Hazucha Sounds like two horror stories in one - the meltdown and a clear coat that does not dry in a week... What coat did you use so I can make a mile-wide circle around it in the future? In any case sorry to read this... :(
10. June at 13:59:21
Daniel Was my first use of vallejo acrylic gloss varnish, but I've heard that it normally works just fine, so I dont know what happened and wouldnt necessarily blame it on vallejo. Maybe the thinning ratio and or the conditions (hot+high humidity last week)
10. June at 15:08:55
Patrick Hagelstein :o........ I was just to comment on a beautiful job when I read the previous comments... :( So sad to learn this puppy was cremated... Such a shame for that hard work, especially the whole rescribing...

Daniel So this Kit was a real PITA and took a lot of blood, sweat, tears and putty...but in the end there finally is a Growler on the shelf and I love the Lightning-markings, makes it look fast :)
14. May at 12:36:49
Nathan Dempsey Looks great. I've heard this kit is a challenge too.
14. May at 12:45:40
Holger Kranich Oh i can imagine, that this was not a fun build at all.
14. May at 12:48:33
Daniel Thanks! Yeah a real grind this one… I dont mind challenging builds if the kit itsself is worth it and well researched (like those old monogram kits e.g.) but this one was just crap in so many aspects and not thought through to the end. But I am still happy I stuck to it and finished it
14. May at 16:55:18
Stephan Ryll But looking very good :) very nice build
14. May at 17:09:53
James C It's a bloody nice result for an otherwise horrible kit. Nice work mate.

Holger Kranich The vertical stabs look good! At first i thought they are from a Tomcat! LOL :D
12. April at 11:25:19
Daniel Decals are on, tomorrow I will start with adding some dirt. Meanwhile I am fiddling with the jdam kit. The loadout will be: Centerline tank, 2 GBU-38 right, one GBU-32 and an AIM-9X on the left. And the ATFLIR of course.
13. April at 13:22:31
Daniel Thanks Holger, they are not that far off, if one sanded the upper edge round… ;)
13. April at 13:24:11
Holger Kranich Good progress, Daniel!
13. April at 14:51:29
Daniel Seems I am on the last stretch of this WIP, main wheathering is done, just waiting for the oils to dry for the matt coat. Maybe also add some little scratches&mini-streaks beforehand. Went for a heavier wheathering as normally seen on a CAG - but those do get dirty on deployment as well. ;) I like the glossy colorful CAG look as well as the grimy war look, so this is a good opportunity to get the best of both worlds. I found pics where the anti-slip-coating was stripped off heavily on the right side and tried to replicate this to add something more unusual. This was done with sandpaper, where I peeled the upper surface with tweezers an d a sharp blade. So I guess these are the last pics here, next will be the rollout. Thx for stopping by! :)
17. April at 11:43:21
Donald Dickson II Very nicely done!
17. April at 12:51:29
Patrick Hagelstein Nice one on those anti slip panels!

Bryn Crandell Great looking Eagle. Loaded to the gills! Gretat setup and weathering is done well.
4. April at 20:24:37
Donald Dickson II Love this kit. I used those same resin probe covers. They are awesome. Great job!
4. April at 20:26:55
Daniel Yeah Donald, I wish all of their kits were as good and accurate as this one! Especially the nozzles are outstanding.
Sadly mine came with a load of flash, bent in all directions and really bad moulding, it took a lot of time to get everything cleaned up and neatly together. Should have taken some photos to shock you guys ;) There were two sprues of the upper body in the box, guess it was added by QC since one of them was just FUBAR. The clear parts are pretty bad as well :( but I`ve heard most kits out there are in much better condition.
If they re-issue the kit they should really include a desert storm decal option, since the kit depicts an early model. Or an upgrade sprue, would have saved me some extra work ;) Speaking of which, the probe covers are not resin, but scratch build from sheet and epoxy putty, I looked, but couldn't find those for a reasonable price. Thanks again mates for your positive feedback!
4. April at 22:52:33
Donald Dickson II Wow! Nice job on the covers! I cant remember the brand of the ones I got. I'll have to look.
