  1. wow, That's a kilo of stencils Very nice and sharp looking!
  2. Oh yes oh yes! That's the monster! Have a great fun building it, it's an amazing model!
  3. My first time seeing something like this, for real, in a city, although on a video... A horrible ''accident''...
  4. Very well done! This accentuator relly nicely highlighted the details. Make it guuut!
  5. All white. btw guys, congrats and happy 50% successful completion of the crewed Dragon demo-2 mission to the ISS! This ship looks out of this world! So firstly, here are the rims. I used the original ones from the kit because they had the right number of holes... but they were quite small (the holes), and I had to enlarge them. There is one rim done (left) and one still with the small holes (right): w/ the GTR brake disks/systems *for F-15. And here both rims are with enlarged holes: And here is all pa
  6. Next up: MLGs. So because I'll use the GTR tire set for F-15, the tires can't fit in the standard bays, and thus I can't make the pylons on hinges. The tires from the oleos would need a little rotation towards the centerline of the plane to fit properly but working the white metal pylons would be quite... So, I'll go the easy way - the whole pylons will be mounted on strong magnets in the bays, and then they should fit loose inside for an in-flight config, just about the same as my 1/32 F-15E. That's a closeup of the magnets: I used some supports which wo
  7. PS: it looks like the seamlines have gaps here and there but that's because of of the trasnparent glue which is almsot polished... all the facets are sanded with 1500 and 2000 grit sandpaper. The leading/trailing edges are nicely straight:
  8. Of course, everything is a testfit only: I used something like a piece of palstic as a jig and a piece of 240 grit sandpaper over a perfectly flat piece of acrylic, to flatten the tops of the inner facets... Then I made the leading/trailing edges decently sharp, not quite much. And that's how they look like now. Actually I can't make the tops with a perfect romboid shape but that's how far I can go. Btw the bevels near the rotating surfaces are also slightly ''enlarged'' and smoothened.
  9. Can't recall another word other than Legit! Very nice vert. stabilizator and I can barely imagine what the rest would look like with such a thin over coat.
  10. Very nice looking! The subtle weathering is superb!
  11. The ruddervaters are partially done. For the hinge I used a shorter rod but a stainless steel one They are glued now and just barely sanded along the glue lines. But here is the issue - while I was watching those ruddervaters, they seemed to me way too thick. The F-15 rudders are 1/3rd thick in comparison. So, was it normal because the F-117 is not a supersonic jet or what!? I watched so many pics before and never payed too much attention to the ruddervaters for one reason or another. Then after studying the pics of the jet again
  12. Alrighty : ) The baffled outlets are done, thinned, painted, just about ready for gluing, but after a thorough thinking - it turned out that the reat area of the upper fuselage will become very fragile/delicate to touch if I add the vanes. The next pix are quite of a micro - the thickness of the vane is half a milimiter. And because I want to make the ruddervators moveable, I'd rather make them now when the rear part of the fuselage is still not so risky for action. And just a couple pics with the slotted areas over an artificial light... quit
  13. She looks amazing! I especially like the third picture with the shine and reflections. Very nice!
  14. 10x for the tip Brian! I just did it yesterday by using a wire which is just about thinner than the plastic sheets. Here is how itthey looks now. I'll wait them to dry completely and then I'll have to smoothen/blend the trailing edges of the sheets: And here is a view from the inner side. The fuselage is flipped. With the red is the firstly added "thickness" while the white is the newly added space. And you can see the wire rods shining inbetween. Whilst for the initial thickening I used just two thin stripes from/with the width of the plastic sheets. Quite a sandwitch
