Nils Steyaert Update:

with the first A400M for Belgium now in the paintshop, i have started looking into serials & roundel decal designing to supplement the kit's stencil decals.

https://twitter.com/AirbusDefence/status/1253692736764612609

from what i can see, the font for the titles and serials would be an "RAF Type 1 font" (RAF_PW_ATH, download here bobsyouruncle.net/font-types.htm )

work is expected to begin as soon as my workbench is clear, should be soon. for the moment, im using the Luxembourg A400 as a reference, as this one will be operated in cooperation with the BAF.
25. April, 09:21
Nils Steyaert update:

after seeing the new video from airbus, showing the completed Belgian A400M, ive noticed my design for the "Belgian Air Force" titles on the forward fuselage were too big. so i had to shrink them by another 5mm, making them about 32mm long in 144 scale, and those seem to fit alright. serials for the tail seem to be okay to me.

for paint, if i can believe the info from official documents, all A400M's are painted in FS 36173 (which converts to Humbrol 156).

Suggestions for other builders:
1) Consider doing something with the stabilizers/elevators, which connects to the tail, but actually has this flat surface. This flat surface is molded onto the tail, which doesn't look the best, it should be connected to the stabilizers/elevators.
2) Decal sheet has some obvious errors. Also the yellow prop warning on the hull is supposed to be angled to be parallel with the tilted engines for anyone in doubt.
3) I used a nose weight of 30g iirc, at the nose and around the cabin area at the front, the manual suggests 40g. Note: I had the loading ramp closed.
4) Try make sure you get all the four engines tilted properly, so don't sand off too much plastic here and there.
5) The decal sheet have dark grey "A400M" decals on it. It would be important to make the paint lighter than the darker decals. I couldn't figure out if the decals were too light in color or not compared to photos.

Dave Flitton Interesting information, thanks
1. March, 23:00
Treehugger Also, I found out that, one can't glue on the wheels, if you already glued on all the other parts for the landing gear and also all the aircraft hull parts.

What would work, is gluing on the wheels + the next big part and put those two things into the landing gear bay.

Once can ofc glue it all together, but that would make painting the wheels tricky, unless you want to put masking tape all over each wheel, which seems tedious.

Tip: If needing to sand the clear parts for the tiny windows, it is a very good idea to leave the small clear parts on a part of the sprue, and sand the backside with a metal file, and finish with a polish stick, quick and easy. Also much easier to hold in your fingers that way.

Better watch out for those sink marks. Make sure you add some putty around all the windows and sand down before starting to add any primer. :|

I think my brain somehow ingnored them, maybe because my brain went "that can't be sink marks, not around all the windows, that would be silly, really around all the windows?". Or "I am already busy with those other sink marks over here, I will have to ignore this."

wilky Having worked in a plastic injection molding factory that's a result of not enough pressure in the shot.
Obviously the machine operator hasn't informed the die setter of the issue.
Poor quality control
Total lack of care about the finished product
9. February, 09:55
Treehugger The issue seems to be where the plastic hull is at its thickest, because on the inside, more plastic is protruding. Would be nice to know if this is preventable, or not. It sounds like maybe it is preventable, by being more careful working with the injection mold machine (or maybe in the configuration of it).

The sink marks around all the windows aren't deep, but just enough deep to annoy.
9. February, 10:16
wilky It'd be the pressure of the shot.
Low pressure means not enough material is in the mold space.
Plastic cools and shrinks. This is why it's happening where it's thicker.
Hopefully it was detected during the run and not all kits are the same
9. February, 10:42
Treehugger Looking at the kit again I should correct myself. Six of ten windows have noticeable sink marks. I've already added primer and some color, but I think I will just bite it and sand off the paint and add the putty. :|

Thanks for the feedback. :)

Markus, I build that rack many moons ago (must be 20 years old by now). I'm thinking of building a new and bigger one in the near future.
Dirk, I don't think you will see it at any contest. How do you transport such a beast??

How do you transport such a beast??

Easily answer: You sit down onto the wingcenter start the engines, take in the target next highway and drive to the expo!!! So easy it is.....

Glenn . Look at it this way.... There's a lot of Therapy in that box! It will keep you off the streets and keep you inside in the warm! But you might have to paint this thing outside though. :) Did they update the markings to include RAF decals? You might want that great aftermarket sheet from Turkey.

Derek Huggett Glenn - You expect me to have room to build it as well?!!! (I am grinning from ear to ear as I write this! :) ) We are too similar my friend (modeller vs collector), but it is therapy all the same as you say (even if it is just a placebo effect!). Looks like a nice aftermarket decal sheet (no, this release of the kit doesn't have RAF markings), but do I really need to add more decals to my stash as well? Cheers! 8)

Stefan Woll Hi,

Decals are all one The A-400. A lot of work. I needed the hole day but the quality is great !!!

So far, Stefan
7. October 2012, 18:51
Mike Kryza Hi Stefan - ready next week?? Are you a quick-builder?? :-D
Looks now very good - but it seems to be really a big bird. Think you need a lot of color... ;) Go on...
7. October 2012, 18:57
Thomas Mayer Stefan, in your opinion: is the metal landing gear "really" the better way to go? I am deeply in doubt about SAC because of the very soft metal they use...
22. May 2015, 14:28
Christian Ristits Great build, definitely a like!
22. May 2015, 16:01
Stefan Woll Hey Thomas,

sorry for my late answer. Hhm...I would say no, it it not necessary. If you change the plastic pen for the wheels to a metal pen, then it would be good enough.

@ Christian

Thank you for your comment. :)
17. July 2015, 13:25
Ray Seppala Stefan, your build looks great. Thanks for all the detail with the build. Looks like there are few fit issues I need to watch out for when I start mine.

no problem. I hope that could help you with my photos.

Stefan Woll ***Update 23.07.2012***

Hey guys,

I will show you today a litte Update. Last week-end I have worked on the cockpit. I varnished the panels in Anthrazit, the floor in light grey. The last thing I has to do are the seats but I will show this in the next update.

See you, Stefan

Luc B Thx for the 3 pictures and the explanation Eric!

Eric Juvyns My pleasure Luc :)

Burkhard D Eric, that wasn't intended as a criticsm in any way. I am just puzzled that it seems to provide a model a 'more realistic' appearance despite the observation that it is rarely found in reality. As I said, I use the technique myself! :)
I fully share your view that scale effect is key and maybe looking at very close-up photos shot from a few cm distance doesn't do justice to a paintjob that is supposed to produce scale effect when viewing from a distance of say half a meter away.
Again, no offense intended and thanks for sharing the technique. :)
5. February 2012, 12:52
Eric Juvyns No problem Burkhard. I wasn't offended but, was surprised as I didn't expect this kind of comment. But as stated, I welcome every comment. Only the answer can vary in tone and content.
Happy modelling :)
For good measure I put in some more foto's to emphasize the size of this model.
5. February 2012, 13:00
Burkhard D My comment was misplaced anyway, as you were talking about how to create the illusion of interior detail with pre/post-shading while I had, for whatever reason, accentuated exterior panel lines in mind. Guess I should have had one more cup of coffee in the morning before posting away. Thanks mate and sorry for the confusion. ;)

Thomas Mayer Eric,

please have my sincere thanks for explaining "your" way to me and friends here at ScaleMates! I really appreciate you doing so!

Thomas
5. February 2012, 16:27
Eric Juvyns My pleasure Thomas.
Don't worry about it Burkhard, we both got carried away I guess.
On to more pleasant things, like building a A400M ;) If only I got some more time to put into this project :(
6. February 2012, 18:38
Guido Haesevoets Hello Eric, is indeed a nice technique and not only on the inside of airplanes. I've also used it on car interiors, more precisely on seats. I never thought about taking images, but yours eplain/demonstrate it very well. Next time around when I do another set of seats, I'll try and remember to do them.

Thanks for the time and sharing!

MT Hopper I know armour modellers use the technique called colour modulation on the exterior of armoured vehicles to depict the differential in lighting and wear and weathering on the differently angled surfaces. You can see examples on the MIG forum. Has anyone done something like this on aircraft models?
Cheers
MT
17. February 2012, 17:28
Eric Juvyns Hey MT. I've read about this technique in the new FAQ2 book and asked myself the same question. In my opinion it is only usable on angular surfaces like tanks and armored vehicles and not so much on curved surfaces found on planes. So I will stick to the things I know and do it the old fashioned way.

al direct aan begonnen blijkbaar
en de Mustang, bijna klaar ?
11. January 2012, 19:57
Eric Juvyns Inderdaad, kon het niet laten :) Het is echt wel een indrukkendwekkend model.
De Mustang ben ik aan bezig maar is momenteel dus on hold. Vermoedelijk zal ik een beetje gaan schipperen tussen de twee modellen.
