And that's the close of this one. Ribbons have been awarded so if you didn't get one and think you should, let me know.

Nice campaign everyone, and congrats to those who finished!

Mr.K: Very nice and clean build with the decent weathering
of a well maintained Navy-aircraft !
Very good photos too - obviously not made with a mobile phone

We had some nice sunset here, so as always I couldn't resist to take some pics in the natural light; hope you don't bother...

Hi,

One week extension is a good chance. Richard, hope you finish your Harrier.
My FRS-1 is done with a pair of Sea Eagle and two pairs of Sidewinder.




I use enamel Tamiya XF-54 Dark Sea Grey as the main color and cover it by lacquer Mr.Color 181 semi-gloss clear. It's not dried yet completely when taking the photos,



Regards,
K.

Perhaps a one week extension, or is more needed? What does everyone think?

Hi,

Nice weathering on Harrier, Andy.
Thomas's and Linus's Harriers are also beautiful to me.

I continue my 1/72nd FRS-1. Just cover the paint. Hope to finish it.

K.

Excellent GR.3 Thomas. The natural metal finish on the Matra rocket pods looks particularly good.

Okay, I call it done
There are always parts you like to change or redo but for now I
finished the 1/72 AIRFIX Hawker Siddeley Harrier Gr.3 - 4.(R) Squadron RAF, Gütersloh, Germany 1980.

Nice kit with no bigger issues. Details, panel lines etc. are really beautiful for this scale; clear parts are o.k. and the decals went on easy and smooth (a lot of tiny common stencils... )

I used Gunze for the undersides and for the metalized parts, on top there are Humbrol acrylics finally all covered with Vallejo satin. Some pastels, pigments and water based wash for weathering.

Michael, thanks for hosting! Was a fun campaign with some beautiful builds

Great looking Harrier Andy, can you tell me what colours you used for the greys?


Thanks.
Err colours were umm (looking in the paint drawer as I have gone and put them away )
I think it was Vallejo ModelAir, Dark Sea Grey (uppers) and US Grey (lowers), I did add a little white to the Dark sea grey.
It was the Vallejo equivalent of the Gunze/Mr Color range.
Andy



Perfect, thanks for the help....hopefully mine will turn out somewhere near as good as yours!!

thanks again...

Very well done Andy! Great build and a good fix on that "frost-issue". It's very good looking. Congrats for finishing

I'm still in the dacaling process - now it's day 3 with that estimate 200+ partial tiny decals ...
