pity about the decals. but yes, a what-if would be nicer than nothing...
I cound't find a good capture from Jane's ATF or Fighters Anthology but here is an idea from another game (I think):
Is the tamiya stuff that strong? Got the same kit and am wondering now about using microsol or mr mark setter/softer on the decals are hasegawa decals very sensitive generally?
The game footage looks interesting, could provide a nice save.
Thanks for your input folks, I didn't expect so much interest
I'm not a fan of whifs, but I will think about it, currently the most probable option is a Tiger-like agressor camo.
@Maciej: Cool pic, one of my fav games, efcharisto!
@Rene: The ones I found in X-29 boxing are quite strong, but they have a lot of glue added and they are very sticky and really hard to move around after applying. The solution is to cut them in small pieces, then they work, but I had to be very careful about the alignment. And apply only a bit of softener, cause in such case they like to move when drying. So, watch out, you have been warned
Well... Thanks for the warning they sound like loads of fun. Too bad masking and spraying the stripes isn't really an option with the DARPA inside the stripes
But other than the decals the kit seems to have given you little trouble aside from the intakes
Indeed, it's quite simple and good fitting except for decals and inlets. Pity nobody makes masks for X-29.
Pitty about the decals ..... Long time ago I made this kit and I don't remember having trouble with the decals .... I used Microscale liquids though ....
Me too. I'm going to build another one anyway, maybe this winter or next year, not sure yet.
