Hi William,

May I please ask you a question?

Will you be using an airbrush or brush painting your model?

I ask so we can tailor our advice as to the method to give you best results.

As I've I've said before, all members here will help you, but if we know which method you apply your paint, it will help us advise better.

Like everyone here, I love the fact a younger person is here with us "Old Gits" and making a model.

But to help you best, we need to know methods you do things (we'll keep in mind Bobby's beginners build and suggest the cheapest methods to achieve best results)

Hi Cellarrat I use an airbrush, the harder and steenback Infinity! I'm going to be trying to paint free hand camouflage on the Ki-61! But I have got a 0.15 mm needle so that will help I guess and thanks for the help!👍 :)

Hmmm on 1/72 free hand isn't the best method, the over spray on the colour meetings isn't as "sharp" and can look diffused and not right. Usually.

I don't free hand smaller than 1/32.

But good luck, your keener younger eyes and hand to brain coordination may make it work

If not, the Panzer putty Bobby Waldren uses is excellent for masking (expensive) or the method we "Old Gits" use is blue tac and masking tape.

The smaller the scale we go, the more defined edges have to be, sorry its just a scaling effect

If you wanted to pre shade your panel lines on the camo, you could free handyour light colour, slightly over spray your dark colour areas, mask, touch up your pre shading then do darker colour

Thats what I usually do as I hate shading after main camo is done (even though sealed, I'm scared I'll mess things up)

I agree with Fabian re: your kit. Tamiya hard to beat. Enjoy!

Hi all
This is where I am at on my build. Just completed the cockpit......now ready for assembly!
First of all I used Tamyia colours then I painted on all the detail then added a clear coat and gave it a wash. Then to finish off the painting I gave it a flat clear coat.
So far the kit has gone together really well!! PS I hope I have attached the photos correctly this time! 😉

Crikey William, that's some very impressive work for such a small scale.  I'd swear I was looking at a 1/32, not a 1/72.

William, awesome work on the cockpit! I’ve only done one 1/72 camo build/finish. I was just getting back into modeling after over 40+ years way. I have the same AB you do. I used White TAC rolled into lengths I could follow the camouflage pattern with, then placed Tamiya tape over the areas I was protecting. The edges came out nice and sharp.
