Lookin' Good Teresa,

 

It's a nice kit and the pit is painting up nicely.

 

So thats what the landing gear wells look like :rofl: :rofl:

 

Have you decided to try foiling?

 

I know Paul has a good handle on nmf finishes so either way you'll have a Sharp Thunderjet

 

watch'in you

 

 Jack

 

PS  Give Paul a KISS for me :wub:

 

Shut-up Ernie

Nice pit!

 

I tend to drybrush some light color at the edges (actually, I paint it with a fine brush, but drybrushing will do the trick too) to bring out the shapes inside the pit. With dark painted cockpits you loose all details and the parts/ extra parts added after hiding it in the fuselage, especially under a closed hood. A little bit of drybrushing takes care of this issue and helps to do justice to your modelling efforts.

Beautiful cockpit, Teresa. The buckles on the seatbelts look so much like real metal, amazing. Are you using buffable metalic paint? I will follow with interest.

Thank you John!!

 

I only make the canvas, you are the artist that brings it alive! Great work so far.

Awww... Thanks Harold, couldn't bring it alive unless I had fantastic detailed parts that I can actually see!!  :coolio:  :)

Hi Harv my friend!! I don't know about amazing, but I am doing my best. Thank you so much!! Hope you are doing great!! Thanks for looking in.  :D

 

Nice pit!

Thank you Dutik!

 

Thanks for the advice. I did do a little dry brushing but maybe I need more, I will take a look my friend.

 

Thank you for looking in! Appreciate it.

 

 

Hi 

 

nice job Madame !!!! this cockpit looks fine ..I didn't know there was a kit dedicated to the French F84 ....good to know !!!!

Alain

 

Thank you for your kind words Alain!!

 

 French F-84 markings are terrific, :thumbsup:  but at this time I have some markings that I will be using on this particular project that I had already chosen before I received the kit.

 

If you would like them since I will not be using them at this time, PM me your address, I would be happy to send them to you if you would like them or can use them for your projects. :)

 

Thank you again Sir!

 

Teresa 

 

 

Lovely work indeed!

 

Thank you Brian!! Much appreciated!

 

Beautiful cockpit, Teresa. The buckles on the seatbelts look so much like real metal, amazing. Are you using buffable metalic paint? I will follow with interest. 

 

Thank you Dukie!! 

 

On the seat belts I used Model Master Chrome (Enamel paint). Very easy to apply just have to be careful and try to use one stroke application otherwise it may show blobs or streaks. It just kind of lays into

 

the detail of the part very nicely I have found.

 

Thank you for looking in!

 

Teresa 

 

 

PS:

 

Guys I have been looking in on your builds and I learn something new each time. There is so many great builds going on that I try to look in and at least click the like button to let you know you are doing

 

such great work. :yahoo: 

Boy it is hard sometimes to keep up with it all... :doh:

 So I am taking this opportunity now to say I applaud you  :clap2: keep up the inspiration for others like me!  :D

 

Thank you for your advice, support or just looking in!  :wub:

 

Teresa

Thank you Mark!

 

I don't have the foil that I am aware of, I know you have a tutorial out there somewhere about foiling right?

 

When I get ready to make a decision on what I am going to attempt to do, I will take another look.

 

Thanks for looking in!

 

Teresa  :D
