srp71: Thanks! I considered to leave the blob there, but I couldn't have lived with that even if missile is going to be about there. Decals behaved very well and conformed to panels nicely, even Modeldecals were worth they money in that regard.

TedUSA: I have intentions to finish these in time, I just hope I can get everything that I planned included into these. I have to go even higher gear with this build...

[Compare_decalled_right-800] 
Finally F.3 (old) starboard side is decalled and planes start to look more ready. 

[Compare_decalled_top-800] 
Both models are now decalled and ready for some weathering...

[Panel-line_wash-800] 
F.2A (new) is again getting everything first. I used AK:s Dark streaking Grime (for dark green vehicles). 

[Panel-line_clear-800] 
And everything from wrong places is removed with cotton swap dipped with thinner.

That's a pain to get the blob in the finish so near the end ! I too would not have been able to leave it. Everything does look great though, you got the decals down beautifully, and the paint works is fantastic the, weathering will be the icing on the cake , I have my fingers crossed for you. I hope you finish in time

Brundledonk: I have to do F.2A (new) while I decide how to correct that with minimum damage to other parts. As F.2A in this stage it would be so easy to just leave plane as it is, but icing has to be done.. (and someone likes it someone don't, I think):


[Weathering_oils-800]

I wanted that F.2A (new) wouldn't be too monotonous green (although there was  lighter green in center of the panels) and not too new looking. Until this point I have tried to do as clean plane as possible but it's going to change.. from this point on it is my artistic license to dirty this aircraft to my likings. Of course I try to do as realistic as I can but this can divide audience. This can also lead into catastrophe, but I take the chances because there is many monotonous schemes in different planes that would be nice to do.. So I decided to try out oil color weathering (for first time) for starters. As my Van Gogh blue was in bad shape I bought MIG oil color (Faded Navy Blue Abt030) intended to this kind of usage. Another color was VanGogh Cadmium Lemon (212 series 2).

[Weathering_oil_dots-800] 
First thing to my knowledge in this kind of weathering is to do spots from lighter and darker color in this instance yellow and blue (as green comes from these two colors..). Second stage is to blend those splotches with broad brush (dipped in MIG thinner). Strokes are done in direction to airflow.. I divided this in stages as there is shown the first one: port wing.

Two days to go...

Brilliant work. Both aircraft look stunning. 
 I really do need to get myself some oil paints. to aid in doing panel lines. Keep up the great work.

As you say weathered models are not to everyone's taste, but I enjoy them that way they always seem more realistic ! But at the end of the day we build our models to please ourselves lol ! I really hope you get these finished in time, they are lovely models

Thanks a lot for your kind comments! 

srp71: This oil color weathering is really fun, and if you are not too hard handed those can be washed away totally if you screw up (when you use water based / arcryllic paints/varnish.

Brundledonk: Normally that is very true, that you only have to please yourself, but this time this is for real... but in ether case I'll do what I want. I take final spurt to get these done and results to their own threads.

There still seems to be a lot to do:

[Compare_pitot_tube_text-800] 
Next to last comparison: Pitot tubes. As can be seen Master Model pitot tube is very fine.. point where it attaches to kit part is 0,5mm diameter.

[Compare_pylons-800] 
Final part comparison for parts of these builds: Pylons completed. Old Airfix pylons (natural metal ones) came out ok with some work.



[Weathering-800] 
Weathering is done with MIG Gun metal P231, it was used with paintbrush and cotton swab and some MIG thinner is used to blend pigment in. Same kind of weathering was done to F.2A (new) underside.

  [Port_side%20_mistake_fixed+pylon-800]
Port side error was fixed and some filling is needed in pylon and fuselage meeting point, and some weathering after that...

[Landing_gear_light-800] 
I made landing light to main landing gear door by drilling hole with small drill, painted hole with chrome and filled hole with Humbrol Clearfix..

[Canopy_inside-800] 
Some details are made to canopy inside. Although canopy was painted first with inside color from outside, this has to be painted gray from inside too as the illusion is not too good if canopy is open.

Something that I still have to share today:

[Last_paint-800] 
Last masking for F.3! And after that last paint..

[Mask_removal-800] 
Removing mask. I used no 11 blade, as can be seen, because there went so many layers of everything and I wanted to prevent paint being removed with masking tape.. some black is still needed to perfect the canopy frame. You can perhaps also see that pylon is now blended in...

[Refueling_probe-800] 
For some odd reason refueling probes location pin is square, how I'm supposed to put it in round hole I drilled? I have to sand that pin to other shape, otherwise hole must be so big that it is shown beneath.

Yes I'm going to finish this in time. Weather doesn't favor picture taking though...

[Missiles_ready_text-800] 
Missiles are ready..

[Missile_smoke-800] 
And I try to make missile look like it is being fired.. First time to try anything like this. Smoke is done from makeup remover pad. Missile 'fire' is done from packaging wire painted in clear yellow.

Final reveal pictures..
