Hi Sergej. Nicely done! I like the weathering.

And yes, it's totally understandable. I couldn't decide either, which one I would prefer and therefore come to the conclusion to build them both.

I am for a while fed up with micro 60's planes, so two cats on the bench and a Crusader in weathering station :P

Well, it's all I do these days, and I'm working on them every day.
The only times I'm not working on something is when I have my grandson here, 2 afternoons a week, when I'm sleeping or napping or eating. LOL Or the occasional PC repair job, like I'm fixing my Ex's right now. That seems to have eaten up most of a week!
I think I have only one more car to post and I'll be caught up with everything. It will be 3 years worth come about March or so.

This is a very nice looking model! Can you say something about the colors you have used?
28. April 2016, 21:33
Murad ÖZER
Indeed a nice model Robert, simple and easy to build too. hobbyboss color callout is TOTALLY off, don't use gunze midnight blue as it has nothing to do with the navy blue of that era. gunze is more of a very dark greenish blue.

What you see here is unorthodox by all means, it's winsor and newton cobalt blue artists oil paint (yes!) thinned with odorless turpentine and applied via airbrush on top of a mat coat. reason for the mat coat was to ensure adhesion of the oil paint since it doesn't have any sticking properties in the thinned form, at least nothing close to any of the modelling paints we are using. followed by pronto wooden floor wax (= of Future in turkey) and decals.

enjoy.

29. April 2016, 10:58
Murad ÖZER
@Pierre-Christian thank you

@Antonio thank you too. i think this one's going to look even better in 1/48 for it's relatively small as jets go.

29. April 2016, 18:38
Robert
Oil paint and Airbrush? This offers a whole new dimension for painting! Never thought of this. Thank you. Maybe I'll have a try on this. Your are right with the colors. I used gunze Intermediate Blue and Navy Blue on my Avenger. I'm not satisfied with this choice.
29. April 2016, 22:13
Murad ÖZER
Weathering began, first a lot of panel highlighting with pretty much tinted thinner with tamiya sky blue, then oil dot filtering.
I'll continue with some chipping and paint the leading edges in metallic.

Wow, that's really nice! I love it when someone does a common model in an uncommon scheme. Looks like you've added some aftermarket parts to the Hasegawa kit - wheel wells and cockpit detail?

Thanks guys! @Bill: Yes, I used an Eduard PE set (which included the wheel wells) and a resin nose and wheels from Resin Art.

That sounds good! With what kind of colors did you use?
8. November 2014, 17:48
Ekki
The main colour is Tamiya XF-17 Matt Sea Blue (recommended).
The stripes on the wings and he tail are Humbrol 11 metallic silver.
It was all brush-painted by hand.

Nice bird. You can make a carrier deck easily, using a black sandpaper, only painting the white and yellow lines.

Ekki
I've got all the utensils to make a carrier deck but have to find the time to make it. I am waiting for a nice, warm and sunny day during the weekend so I can construct it outside. However, here in NL, spring is still not upon us.

Nice work, Joao! I agree with Tim, you've depicted the "scale glossiness" quite nicely. And Kerry, it was William Holden in the movie, not John Wayne - although I think he would have done a great job, too. If anyone gets a chance, read the novel by James Michener. You'll find that the planes are McDonnell F2H Banshees! I believe that the Panthers were used in the movie because they were still in service at the time of filming. :)

Hi Cesar, thank you !

That looks like a great kit. Fisher Models is looking into a 1:32 CF-100 Canuck so it's great to see what it could turn out like.

For sure, a 32nd scale "Clunk" would be a massive piece of kit. Maybe they should consider to sell it by weight. :)

I like it - the Argentina paint job looks much nicer than the usual overall sea blue! It is airbrushed or hand painted?

Hi, thank you Thomas. It's airbrushed, except from bombs, rockets, wheels and cockpit parts, and red details.

Love the old matchbox kits

Yikes! Humbrol Clear varnish - is that similar to Future (Kleer)? Or is it an enamel or lacquer? Cracking usually occurs when the base coat of paint is not yet fully cured. When you spray over the top with something that dries quickly, the bottom coat may expand or contract while it continues to cure, and the top coat cracks as a result. I find this happens more often with acrylics for some reason, Future included. How long between spraying the Gunze blue and the Humbrol Clear? Looks like you recovered well, but what a pain, eh?
30. December 2013, 20:56
Urban Gardini
I don't remember but I think it was at least a week between the Gunze n' the Clear.

Most of the classic Matchbox kits is rereleased by Revell of Germany so I'm not surprised. It's a good n' simple kit to build if you wan't a recreational build.
