Hi Gang!!!

This will be my entry for this forum!


[image]  

or as it is kn-owned on the west....

[b1e5849f2c35df792946b97bb2d0d6b4]  
Translation.....

[J-10a_zhas]  
Some wiki info here.

The mandatory sprue shots!








This is NOT going to be a display team aircraft!! I want an operational one, and since all the bits need are in the box, I just need to decide the paint scheme...

Now I'm a bit undecided if I should do a Light/dark ghost grey or do a what if pixel camo..... decisions, decisions..... 

Stay tuned for more soon!!!

Interesting! Reminds my of both Eurofighter and F-16 (tail). About the scheme: maybe just a primed one?

does seem to be a design "mashup" of sorts? well, we know that the Asians are great at making knock-offs. according to Wikipedia, they built this plane for 190 million? a fraction of the cost of an F-16? should be a great kit built up and in any scheme......

Thanks for the suggestions  Fabian, but everyone else that those this kit goes for the primed one and I want something different.... I'll make my mind soon....
Ted, this is actually a development of the IAF project, the LAVI!!!


Now let's crack with it....

The cockpit has some very nice raised detail!





The bag seat is very good for a standard out of the box one. This seams to be a knockoff of the SJU17, with the exception of the arm resting... 



working on the sucker.....









Trumpeter provides, among other things, PE for the intake, NICE TOUCH!!!










Some brut force is necessary to get a seamless joint of the intake/fuselage...





Cockpit.

I did paint the cockpit, but decided to give the decals a go....
After some gallons of white vinegar (micro set) and 50% IPA + 50% H2O (micro sol), this is the end result.

You can get a stronger mix on the "homemade" micro sol by just using pure IPA, that's what I end up doing to make sure the decals melted nicely on that nice raised detail....












Till nest time, BYE!!!!!!

Thanks Steven!!

Time for a quick update....

Getting on with the air intake and fuel bags....


The air intakes will need some extra work to get just right. Nothing major.









This kit is building up very fast due to the excellent fitting and small quantity of parts.....
I have a J-10S (2 seat) version from Bronco in the stash that I may take out just to see if it is this good!

Thanks for watching and until next time!

UPDATE #4

It's going together quickly....

the left wing went on WITHOUT ANY gap what so ever, the right one.....













But with some persuasion it went through 





Bottom seams all done.







The instructions will have you glue the canards, I decided I want mine movable....

I started by cutting the tabs on the canards, drill a hole in the same spot of the tabs, next I put a metal rod through the fuselage, and that's it!!!! 
Easy fix.






Tested for fitting....


















That's it for today, cheers!!!

update #5

Time to take the center seam on the canopy out



weapons used


the line that you still see on the canopy is actually inside of it and is suppose to be there, is the detonation cord.

Dry fit of the seat to see if it fits properly.











It does but.....

there's a nasty gap between the canopy and the front windshield....


I used some VERY thin plastic from a plastic cup to build up the layers and close the gap.


















Adding some PE, seam checking, priming (with that horrible polyurethane stuff, I'm to cheap to throw it away....) and preshading.




















I HAVE DECIDED ON THE PAINT SCHEME!!!!!

WHOOO HOOOO!!!!














I'm starting the engine now!!!
More updates soon!!!!

Cheers!!!

Looking really good. Nice fix of the canopy gap, i have to remember that. Did you spray the camo scheme freehand or mask it ?

Thanks Thomas!

I'm too lazy to use masks, even do I do one withe tak and punzer putty and tape of corse....

It's all free hand, I just trace the pattern with water color pencil, I tend to use the closest color possible to the camo one.

update #6


Here's some pics of the work done so far.


The radar radome has some "vanes" in it, and they are a lighter color than the radome, so I painted the entire thing and LIGHT sand the vanes to show the primer beneath....







Next the engine....








After several metal shades and a VERY diluted Tamiya metal blue, here is the result....










I couldn't resist dry fitting it to the model, with some decals, to see how it would look like.
















That's it for now boys!!!!

more soon, cheers!!

update #7

Hi guys, after a 2 weeks detachment for some simulator training, I'M BACK!!!!!

Here is my latest work.

Decals done!!
I left out some of the stencil, because the gray that I chose for the camo is too close to the stencil color and is almost impossible to see it, so why bother????






Now time for my HOMEMADE wash!!!
It works almost like Phil's Flory wash. I'm not saying that it is the same, because unfortunately I don´t own one of Phil´s, but for what I can see it does the same....
You could do it yourself at home without any hassle, in pretty much any color you want, but I´m not gonna say here how.... I don´t wan't to mess with Phil´s sales....

Any way here it goes... 


























Alf the wing completly clean and the other alf with some grime left behind.... 



all clean....


All cleaned up ready for some mat cote and some more weathering....




















More soon!!!

OK guys after EXACTLY 2 months without updating this build here I am again!!!

Thanks TED you are very kind!

After coming back (I was away working for 2 months) I took a closer look ate the join between the wind shield and the fuselage and I really did not liked it....

So what to do after the all plane was painted, decaled, washed and mate coated??? Nothing.... or bite the bullet and fix it....


As you might guess already I chose door nº2!!

So here is a before photo.



During...
I use deluxe putty, really easy to sand and you can clean it away with water. I masked my clear parts to make sure they didn't got damaged.













And final result.

GREAT SUCCESS!!!!!






She is now finished!!! 




Final reveal here!!
Hope you enjoyed!!!
