Fanch, how exactly did you do that stunning weathering on the intake ducts? Oils?

Hello !

First I applied surfacer primer and a coat of Tamiya X-2 gloss white. I applied some small blotches of liquid mask wit a small foam padThen i sprayed highly thinned H79 sand yellow as a mottling adding a few drops of smoke along the process. Next I removed the liquid mask and softened and adjusted the contrast with a Micromesh pad ( 3200 ). This also helped adding some tiny scratches. Then I applied again some liquid mask en repeated the same steps, then again a third time.

A good reason to choose X-2: it is rocksolid and can bear the treatment with no fear.

 

I masked the white and applied and weathered some light grey with vertical light lines on the sides, and a wash and a few spots of oil paint ( peach black )

 

I hope this helps !

Fanch

A little update today !

I'm working my seamlines, filling, shaping ( especially the lower front fuselage plate which fit poorly in my assembly ), so I've taken a bit of time for detailing and change my mind.

I've opened the to small air conditiong grids, replaced them by eduard parts. These needed a framing correctiong as they are not symetrical. The fans have been made with strip styrene and  small tubes coming from sacrified pipettes

This intake contour and lips were badly and poorly shaped. Drilling was also absolutely necessary on this scale.

 

 

best regards

Fanch

hello

an little updtae tonight:

I'm still working on the airframe. On one of LSP fine member's adivice I got rid of some awful rivets ( nose and engine nacelles ), and i'm now working to make a rendition of many panel lines that were filled by some sealant. Daco book shows fresh lines but also some old marks of putty. I tried to replicate thos on the beaver tail, for example. Upper fuselage is also under progress with these.

I have also reworked the tail fins: upper reinforcement plates come from a Crossdelta set. Lower bulges needed reshapeing as the overlap between on and the other is missing on Trumpeter's part.

Some work in progress on flap/wing area. Missing slot, actuator, spoiler rescribing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

F14B_110.jpg

Kit parts have been replaced to replicate the plate that flip into the wing to let airflow come around flaps. Kit part are not designed to flip and allow a proper flap positionning. Flap actuators seem a bit too long I think.

 

 

At the moment I'm working on horizontal stabs: sealant lines, and maybe bulge reshaping ( I'm gathering pics of these )

best regards !
