So this was a build I did to get some courage for Tomcat Group build PE seats 😄
Fully OoB, no PE, canopy masks, Gunze Mr Color paints and lacquers, Tamiya makeup kits for post shading. Better pix coming soon. Enjoy.

I wonder, how large needle do you have on your airbrush? Looks nicely painted.

Thank you Konrad,
Treehugger, I use Iwata Revolution CR with... 0,5 mm needle. This gives me freedom to paint surface areas nice and evenly and with minimum pressure I can get really nice details.
Post-shading on this one was done with a 3mm flat brush and Tamiya wax-make-up kit with drybrushing. It is slow, but extremely controllable process.

Very nice indeed - haven't seen a model with positive panel lines for some time... well done 👍

The age of the mold is not affected by great paint work. Congrats!

Beautiful F-8! Congrats Sergej 👍

PS: I wonder what the guy on the pic is wearing, didnt know About "Flecktarn" in the Navy...or US troops in General tbh

Thank you everyone, for nice words, I appreciate it a lot.
Had this kit in the stash for a while and didn't quite want to scrap it for testing of paint and techniques. So instead made it into a quickbuild in fly-mode. One more Hasegawa Tomcat and Hasegawa Phantom II are awaiting the same destiny 😄 But that's for another day...

Me too, Es-haq - then I can fit them twice as many in my display case 😄
