OK, as hoped, the bottom of the Ki-84 is now gray. I kind of like the patchy way it came out, and did do some preshading first. So far, so good!
Well, I have a tin of the WEM Japanese Yellow coming (along with a couple others).
Mike I thought the wing leading edges were an orange yellow is this incorrect for the Frank?
Hi Oliver, how did you strip the green paint off the aluminum undercoating? It looks like you used the "tape method".
BTW: the seat ... uhhhm, maybe I match it not nicely but indeed the holes are more or less like that and have at least 2 different diameters.
Hello fellow modelers,
lots of nice builds are going on around here!
Your kit seems to "fall" togeter very well. Nice paint job!
Cockpit section looks absolute fantastic! Wow!
Nice figure! What colors will You use for painting? Oils?
Nice start. The thinned and drilled out seat looks cool! Were these holes asymetrical?
Your dauntless looks really fine. Sorry for those decal-problem. I hope the set wil arrive soon.
My Kate has been closed now. The old kit needed some more putty than I thought. Lights were cut out and redone by some clear material.
After sanding, some lines had to be rescribed. After this, the plane was primed followed by Tamiya Silver out of the rattle can.
As I want to build rather worn Kate, the metal parts were coated with hair spray.
After a pre-shading with black the green color was applied onto the wing.
Then came the fun part and the color was stripped of again.
The same procedure was done with the other wing...
...and the fuselage.
I found it much easier to do the stripping step by step as I did not know how long the effect of the hair spray would last.
Ernest have you tried micro scale decal film? That's my go to for desintergrating decals. Works pretty well too, a couple of coats is all that is uaully needed and it dries pretty quickly after application. Just let it dry between coats.
