Good morning.
I found the videos for this build on YouTube and had to subscribe. I have wanted to build the Lynx Mk 7 for years but never felt I could do it justice until infound the step by step videos.
I was an aircraft engineer on 847NAS and served with the Lynx in Iraq in 2006. I wanted to build the model in memory of my friend who were shot down there.

I’m watching the video I saw there were so many paints, washes, glues and stuff used in the making of it. I was wondering do you have a list of what was used. If not no worries, but it would save me watching all the videos just making a shopping list before I got started!

Thanks

Steve

Hello Steve,

First of all I want to wish you WELCOME in this fantastic community. You have all my respect considering your mission in Irak. I would like to try to help you the best as I can, so is it possible for you to tell us what you already have in hand so we can start somewhere. I love to watch tutorials, so if you want I can try to dress a kind of a list with you. Don't worry, all together we will make it. Hope you will apologise for my poor English, but in many points modelers are talking a universal langage. So like promise I will start watching this step by step tutorial in the next days.

Hello Alainvandenbosch,
Thanks for your reply. I have modelled games workshop models for a few years, so have brushes and way too many citadel paints and washes (such as Agrax earth shade) I have knifes and files and the bits to build the models. It’s mainly it’s mainly the other paints, thinners, fillers and such I don’t have. I also don’t have an airbrush, but this is the perfect excuse to get one!

Yes, last year I started modeling again and I tried to paint with an ordinary brush ... I was so diapointed that I nearly gave up. But since I bought a little compressor on Ebay and two airbrush . I opted for Mission Models paints but even if they are very good only a few kit manufacturers will mention their references in the manual. So with Tamiya or Vallejo paints it is much more easier to find the right color reference. I use a Iwata Eclipse HP-SBS 0.2 mm and a Iwata HP-TR1 revolution 0.3 mm airbrush. I'm very happy with both of them. You can't go wrong with the Eclipse model.

For the filler I would suggest to try the Vallejo plastic putty. Never use it but it is water based and seem very easy to clean so it will save you a lot of time sanding.

Flory models sanding sticks have the reputation to be the best but I never tried them.

Try to find Micro Sol and Micro Set for your decals. Also Micro cristal clear for gluing clear parts.

Ah yes, I now use Pledge floor gloss to apply a clear coat and it seems it makes miracles on clear parts also.

For panel lines Tamiya offers a ready to use product named "panel line" 😊😊😊. Black or brown.
