Sunday 5th July 2009 WIP

Sunday 05/06/09 WIP

A cooler day today than its been for quite a long time which means i don't have to worry about the paint drying before i applied it. Just had a heat-wave which was nice but not what im used to.

The Revell F-14A is all sanded and primed and ready to be painted.

Macross Phalanx i think ive got the colour right, been dry-brushing ti with a light yellow than the yellow/brown i used which i hope will make it looked liked it gone through a few battle.

The cockpits for Skill Squadron are all primed and ready to be detailed.

The blue Sweet Wildcat IV as all ready to be decaled, given it a black wash to fill in all the panel lines and clear coated. Leave the clear coat to dry for a couple of days before applying decals.

The Trumpeter F-86 Sabre on the left is one of the first kits i assemble and painted about 4 months ago as a practice which i discovered yesterday at the back of my model stash. Was really badly painted and i used this terrible glue which made it not bad. Ive tried to salvage it with a new coat of paint and luckily i never applied the decals so it might be all right. Lot some of the bits from the undercarriage but i can make new ones of whats missing with plasticard luckily the wheels are still there.

Going to buy another F-86 Sabre from Trumpeter as it was one of the best kits ive built but did not know it at the time, bought it because it was cheap but seem to be quite hard to find.

I always wanted to learn kit process but I guess I'm too impatient to sanded and primed.

Its does get a little annoying sanding and really very messy. I do a whole load of modles at the same time, outside and hop to get them all done in a oner.
