Luckily, you didn't destroy it during the final steps, as you have written.
I know that feeling, stuff like that happens to me often, at least I think so. It can be rather frustrating.

Still, it's a very nice looking bird. Great colours and subtle weathering. 👍
Especially love picture 12.

The aircraft is very striking photographed on a black background - very nice!

I think you're too harsh with yourself, Kengdad. Great model and fantastic photos! Congratulations!

Still awesome despite your issue ! Where do the decals come from ?

Thanks all! After sleeping off the stress, I think it looks as good as I could've hoped for... as long as I don't stare at any specific areas lol.

@Romain I found a pretty good decal seller on a Chinese site, I made the image files and they can print them for me.

Looks really nice with the decals. Really love the white erusian emblem on the orange wingtips.
It sucks that the paint on the engines came off. 🙁
Is it better with the lacquer now?

@WhiteGlint Yes, I used Mr. Color Super Metallic this time, it's just as shiny and a lot more sturdier. Some more enamel paint came off during the weathering process, luckily it doesn't warrant a respray. I should probably put my Xtreme Metal paints away for now.

@pic 78 and the white lines: I try to have a not too sharp bent in the backdrop between the bottom and the back wall. Never get rid of it completely, but an as large as possible radius in the bend and playing round with angles between light and camera can reduce it significantly.

Very nice job.
Congrats!

Great job and nice pictures!
I really like the paint job and the weathering.

You are using (mostly) lacquer paints, right?
Do you use Mr. Color Leveling Thinner? I believe I've seen some videos on youtube where it's been praised to make perfectly smooth surfaces.
Appearently you can also mix it with Tamiya Acrylics and get nice and smooth results.
Never used it myself yet or lacquer paints in general, so I am not sure if this is helpful, sorry. Right now I am still figuring out acrylics, though I got some lacquer paints in my stash for an JASDF F-2A waiting to be assembled.

Really nice 👍
I built the egg version of Galm 2. Nice to see the original 😄

@Roland Hey! I came across yours while researching for this build!
12. July, 20:48
kengdad
@WhiteGlint Yes I mainly use Mr. Color lacquer and their leveling thinner. I can spray small surfaces perfectly smooth. It's just that I get impatient on large surfaces after the second coat or so and kept spraying back and forth, maybe a little more patience would help.

@Donald Dickson II The instruction says to choose one way or the other, but it doesn't hurt to make them movable.
7. October 2020, 20:19
Donald Dickson II
Did you just not glue them?
7. October 2020, 22:52
kengdad
@Donal Dickson II In order to insert the wings after painting, I had to leave the joints movable since the wings can only be inserted at the intermediate angle. This is the Academy 2019 tool, I'm not sure how other 1:72 tomcats work.

OK, Im an idiot. I could have sworn it was the Hasegawa you did. Never mind. I didnt say anything except great build!!!! 😄
