I was a bit worried that the front gear wouldn't fit, as I think it's supposed to go in before the nose halves are glued together
20150115_124519
But with a little bit of jiggling about they go in without any drama, this s good news as it means I don't have to faff around making it fit and also means it can go in at the end of the build, so lees chance of me snapping off any sticky out bits !

I need to clean up the seams on this bit, then fit the etch and get some paint on it, I should get the gear finished today

Started weathering the main gear legs, I'm not sure if I like how it's turning out, it's looking a bit more battered than I wanted lol !
I've got to do some detail painting on yet, so I will wait and see how it looks before I start the others

It still needs a pin wash around the details, and a few bits picking out i here and there

Looking very nice Pete. Did you use the Flory wash for that? The PE turned out brilliantly.
I'll definitely get that set for mine. I have plenty of time. It's going to take a month or more to get my scribing and riveting done I reckon. lol So hopefully in that time the budget can recover for a full basket of goodies. [smile]
Looking forward.

Cheers mate !

Yes it's Flory dark dirt, I started by adding a bit of chipping with a dark grey, then covered it in the wash, the reason it looks dirtier than I wanted, is because of all the etch on the strut I can't go nuts removing the wash,
I'm going to use a black enamel pin wash to make th details pop then pick out a few bits and bobs (hinge points and bolt heads) in black and dark grey to simulate grease. I have also started to shove a bit of orange pastel here and there

The etch looks better than I thought it would to be honest, a thick coat of primer did the trick and rounded it of nicely.

Lol ! I was having a look online at what was available for this kit and you could easily spend more than the cost of the kit on it all

The nose gear strut is in primer. I ended up adding a few bits of wire to busy it up a little bit as Eduard don't give you a lot for this one, none of my additions are based on reality lol ! I just thought it looked a little bare so used artistic license

There are a few more parts to add to this, but they need to wait until the painting and weathering is done

Yeah absolutely, I'm not going to go that silly though. I think the cockpit, interior PE(just for the bits the resin cockpit doesn't cover), exterior PE, some wheels will just about do it. I think the kit parts like the exhaust nozzles are good enough.

Satin white? Is that the call out for the landing gear? Or just your preference? That would make the wash stick a lot more than gloss hey?

Gee Whiz Tamiya do do a really good job OOB hey? Maybe I'll rethink getting resin wheels even! They look brilliant. And the gear looks as nice as any I've seen from other kits. Mouth-watering stuff.

This buddy build is cool! It's a real kick to see what's ahead in your build Pete. Definitely going to be invaluable on those dark days when the mojo is waning (as it inevitably (or not) does). [smile]
Nice work!

To me the cockpit is the main bit that lets the side down, but the rest of it isn't to bad when you consider the age of the kit.
Those bits you are getting will really give the kit a lift

Gloss just doesn't look right to me in this scale, so I went with satin, the wash will come off a satin finish, the problem is the photo etch, it is so thin and fragile I just can't remove the wash without damaging it, it's my own stupidity, I meant to do localised washes with enamel, but grabbed the flory wash out of habit and sloshed it on without thinking lol !
Tomorrow I'll airbrush some white over it to tidy things up

Nice work!


The wheels are quite nicely detailed, they look different to the ones in the pictures I have, maybe they are very early versions ? The tyres on the other hand are horrid (at least in my kit) they are a really dark and shiny black, I'm going to see if I can tone them down a bit with a bit of a sanding .

I was a bit worried that my mojo would be low after not building for a while, but it's all good lol !
The timber for the cave came today, so this build will slow down for a little while, I'm going to have an afternoon this kit tomorrow, then it's back to the mancave.
Also got new Tradies turning up on Monday, to fix the damage the last bunch of eejits left me with lol !

Oh good! Yeah the cave can't be forgotten, best you get into it, that'll give me a day or two to catch up at least. lol Not that I'm racing you here. Far from it. I expect to be going alone for a long while after yours is gathering dust on the brag shelf. lol
I am looking forward to your reveal, that will definitely keep me kicking along. After researching this kit the last few days one thing is sure. It's a fine looking beast all finished up. [smile]


Btw, it will look mega-spectacular on that nice Carrier deck you have.

Lol, I will crack on down there on Saturday, I was really hoping to have it done this week, but the weather put paid to that.

I think it will still take me a while to get this done, the weapons look like a fair bit of work, I'm not sure what load out to put on it, I will have a look tomorrow.

Yeah it's a good looking model when it's built up, massive too, this is longer than the f-15 I built a while ago

The deck will be a good way to take pics of Naval aircraft models, trouble is ive only got one more carrier plane in the stash after this one, I might have to try and get the intruder this year, I am going to sell all of my nitro rc trucks and gear, so with a bit of luck it all sells and I can have a bonkers spend up at Telford in November

Nice one, yeah I've had a good look at that Intruder too, what an awesome bit of kit. I think I'll sit on what I have for a while, it'll keep me busy for now. As for a nice 1:32 carrier deck? Hmmm.

Thanks Joe, I painted that cockpit over 5 years ago, this was the second 1/32 kit I tried to build (the first was the 1/32 f-16 by Revell) but I didn't have the experience to finish this one back then
I only really build in 1/32 these days, it's definitely easier on the eyes, trouble is the mistakes look bigger too lol !

Fingers crossed I can make this one look ok at the end

Pete
