I'm thinking that a subtle panel wash would be more realistic. Maybe don't use black but a darker version of the base paint. Darker gray?

This will probably be my last build update for this kit.  I didn't manage to get much work done over the past few days but I have been thinking about the panel lines and whether or not I should give them a wash.  I liked Teds idea of a light wash of similar colour to the base colour but then I looked at pictures of the real plane and the panel lines are not visible and the plane looks overall very clean.  I think I'm going to give the model a nice flat coat and leave off the panel line wash.  

Here are of few shots of the real plane that I used as reference...

And here is a pic of the model as it sits now.......

Shouldn't be much longer before I set up for the final reveal photo shoot.

Thanks for looking,

looks great! I'm sure the colours would be near bang on in daylight too. i think leaving off the panel line wash is a smart move, all the tiger meet AC tend to be freshly painted and clean for the meets.

I was also checking references for my Dutch show bird and decided to not use a panel line wash. This birds are just to clean :-). The Hornet look great and I'm looking forward to the final reveal!

I also agree with the decision re: panel lines. Looks great. Very nice work with the decals!

I would try a pin wash with a very dark grey for subtle effect. That could give you both effects you're after. A little "pop" but still showroom clean [smile]

Looking really nice mate.


If you don't want to highlight all the panel lines maybe just some wash in the control surfaces and around the odd removable panel here and there

How are you going on this one Tim? I've been watching with interest since I got back, thought I better poke my head in and acknowledge.
It's looking killer by the way.
I agree with everyone, so I'd have some random panels done in light grey, maybe a couple in darker oils underneath for highlights. [biggrin]
And yeah, I tried sorting my photos out into folders too, on PB, and it did the same. Screwed the link up. So that's a useful feature PB.

Hi everyone, thanks for all the kind remarks on this kit and the helpful ideas as to the finishing.  I've finished all the detail painting and added all the little antennas and the plane is just waiting for it's flat coat and then final assembly.  I've also put the finishing touches on the base/stand for the plane as well.  Shouldn't be too much longer before I have some reveal photos for you.

Thanks,

So I sprayed a nice flat coat on the plane tonight and noticed a little bit of silvering with a few decals. Most of the spots where it is noticeable is were one decal is applied on another decal. The silvering is not horrible and probably not noticeable to most but, as you all know, we notice all the imperfections in our own builds. Anyways, how do you guys deal with silvering after a flat coat has been applied?

I finally finished this build.  I spent a lot of time going over the entire model fixing the silvering of the decals as best I could and then I sprayed another coat of tamiya XF-86 Flat.  Once that was dry I added all the nav lights, engine nozzles and removed the tape from the canopy and now I can finally call her finished.  This is a good looking bird and now that it's done, I'm glad I built it in-flight because it just wouldn't look as good on the ground.

Last job will be the final reveal photos, hopefully I'll get to them soon.  Other then that, on to the next build.

Thanks for sticking with me throughout this build and helping me out along the way.

Hi again,

  So it seems as though I too have been affected by photobucket and all of my pictures in both my build and final reveal threads are gone.  What is the best website to use now?  I will try to upload all my pics and add a link for the build and final reveal pics in each of the threads.

Thanks
