  1. Whoa.... That's some seriously crisp detail painting Fanch. Very COOL!
  2. Cool. Congrats Jay. Lookin' forward to all of these neat builds
  3. Hi, Good looking build so far. The engine looks very good and the cockpit has turned out great. Have you ever used thin metal foil? I'm a fan of the stuff. There's a ready supply around the neck of some wine bottles. It can be manipulated much more easily than plastic sheet and curves are fairly easy to achieve. You can also represent rivet detail using the same techniques as plasticard. Just a thought.
  4. Hi Radu, Good of you to answer my question, thanks. If you are looking for a source of lead wire then you could try here: http://www.troutfishing.co.uk/ishop/243/sh...shopscr776.html I ordered some just the other week. It comes in three different thicknesses, it is very pliable and can even be rolled if required. I'm sure some could be flattened slightly and then crimped to give a chain effect. HTH
  5. What a JOY to behold!! Thank you for taking the time to post such excellent photos Radu. The quality of the photography is only exceeded by the even higher quality of your modelling. The cockpit looks very clean. I can see a little paint wear on the floor and around the seat. Is it your intention to leave it clean or do you plan to add a little dust etc? I tune in everyday to see the latest updates. This is way TOO COOL Guy
  6. Hi Sav, Good to hear from you again mate. You're right, I don't own an airbrush so I have to rely on spray cans. The colours for the Flanker were eyed up using colour swatches at a local motor factors. They can mix any shade of paint on the swatches into 300ml aerosols. I just took a reference book with me and picked the closest shades! The detail parts, cockpit, undercarriage, wheel bays etc. have all been brush painted using predominantly Citadel Acrylics. Edit* Some additional detail pics of the gear and bays. I'm inexperienced when it comes to building these big kits so I take a modular approach. I build the thing up in sections and paint each part as I go. That should limit the amount of masking later in the build when the whole thing is massive! It worked reasonably well with the Tamiya F-15E but the fit on that kit seems better than the Trumpeter Flanker. I'll have to wait and see how this one turns out. Watch this space I hope the weather holds for the show at the weekend. Enjoy yourself and keep well, Guy
  7. Hi all, Lately I've been playing around with some of the fin detail, modifying the trailing edge pods and aerials and such like. I've also added a little colour to the dialectric panels just to see how they'd look. The green panels seem to suffer quite badly from weathering so I've tried to simulate this. Also, I've enlarged the port fin intake which you can see highlighted by the red circle. *EDIT*. This view just about shows the starboard side that I tried to add in the above posts. I hope you can tell the difference from the other pic higher up this page.
  8. I've just stumbled across this thread and BOY, am I happy I did. What a stupendous build Radu. What strikes me is the precision of your scratchbuilding. From your photos, everything looks so square and true, without any blemishes or errors. What a truly inspirational build. I can't wait to see some paint on the details. Guy. p.s. Have you thought of using stainless steel tubing for the u/c pistons? That way you would n't have to paint the brass. Just a thought.
  9. ... or not! Sorry. I'm getting an error message. File too big but it's only 75.4kb. Oh well.....maybe next time
  10. The starboard face requires different hinge detail. See below
  11. Hi all, I've been attacking the vertical tail surfaces recently. Here are a couple of pics of the progress: I wanted to refine the hinge area so I scratch built a little detail and modified the kit slightly. Both rudders are the same as each other so I'll need to do the port one the same way. Edit* More images:..........
  12. Hey guys, Thanks for the warm welcome, it's nice to "meet" you all. I'm glad that there is no conflict between sites. I did n't expect one but it seemed polite to ask. Is it o.k. to post the same pics on here aswell as ARC? If so, I'll start the next time I have an update p.s. In case anyone is wondering about the above mentioned build, here's a link: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/index.php?...showtopic=46334
  13. Hi guys'n'gals I'm a newbie to LSP but I've kept up with all of the great builds. The standard is very high so I've alot to live upto. I,ve posted an "In Progress" thread on ARC so if you guys have already seen it I apologise. If cross posting between sites is bad form please let me know. I don't want to tread on peoples toes or stir anything up........ I hope you enjoy my pic. Edit* I'm in the process of migrating photos from PB and decided to add some additional images to this thread whilst I was at it. A few extra shots of the office and seat:
