Lookin' Good Teresa,
It's a nice kit and the pit is painting up nicely.
So thats what the landing gear wells look like
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
PS Give Paul a KISS for me
Thanks Jack!! Yes that is what I do believe the gear wells look like.. Haven't decided about the foiling Ummm the kiss I will leave up to you my friend (Don't even want to know)!
Yes Ernie, no comment
Nice work, Teresa. Keep it coming !
Thank you so much Hubert means a lot!!
That pit looks amazing dear friend !Nice ab work also. Go get them !.........Harv
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.
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.
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.
nice job Madame !!!! this cockpit looks fine ..I didn't know there was a kit dedicated to the French F84 ....good to know !!!!
Thank you for your kind words Alain!!
French F-84 markings are terrific, 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!
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!
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.
Boy it is hard sometimes to keep up with it all...
So I am taking this opportunity now to say I applaud you keep up the inspiration for others like me!
Thank you for your advice, support or just looking in!
