Rene Scheiblich Looks mighty fine so far James.

How's the Stynylrez primer? :)
I thought you were going for a black-basing type of paintjob first.

James C Thanks Rene. :)

My bottle of Vallejo black primer (which I normally use) was nearly all used up with what little remained in the bottom being a little lumpy, so I decided to replace it with the Stynylrez black surface primer, which I'd also heard good things about.

I found that it sprays very well straight out of the bottle through my 0.3mm airbrush at about 20 psi.
When built up in gradual layers it covered quite nicely and it appeared to self level quite good as well.
A bonus I found with it was that my airbrush didn't clog once during the entire 90 minute spray session. All up I was quite impressed with it.

The AK726 "British Sand Yellow" sprayed very nice as well, but was a little translucent, so the base coat of Tamiya XF-59 "Desert Yellow" worked out quite well. Had I not done that, I would have had a lot of trouble trying to cover over the black primer beneath. The colour however is not as "yellow" as I was hoping for but it is growing on me.

Sören Reifert Nice paintjob James ;)

James C Cheers mate.

I finished all the detail painting and gave everything a clear gloss coat today so should be able to apply the decals tomorrow. Will update the album when there's more to see.

Rene Scheiblich One more seemingly happy user of thaz stuff. Think I'll get it myself when my black Mr finishing surfacer runs out.
Not having to thin it is

Looking forward to the update. Especially how you did the thermal sleeve :)

Michael Hickey Thank You Gents.

Michael Hickey At last put a bit of color on this beast, I didn't want to give her a solid cover of paint as I want to show her sun baked from the tropical sun.

Clifford Keesler Looking very nice Michael.
01. June 2017 at 20:36:10
Michael Hickey Thanks Cliffy, letting her sit a side now so the paint probably dries. In the mean time I'll be working on my British F-4 which should be finished soon.
02. June 2017 at 00:12:22
Clifford Keesler That will be nice, I'm sure. Is it the Hasegawa kit?
02. June 2017 at 03:46:14
Michael Hickey Yeah she's a Hasegawa kit, I think I've got somewhere between 20 and 30 Hasegawa F-4 Phantom's of different variants. I've also got a lot of resin after market stuff for them as well which I reproduce myself, because there is just no way I could afford to buy the resin goodies for every kit. In the not to distant future I want to build an F-4E with sharks mouth and in the Lizard scheme fully loaded with inert Mk.82 LDGP's. :)

Michael Hickey This bird has sat long enough on the fence, time to get her finished. Painted the blue on the edge of the engine nacelles and the blue for the bats head, pics soon I hope.
