  1. Superb finish! I especially like the engine area! Emil
  2. Wow, the Viper is coming along amazingly. The paint job is spot on, inspiring work! Emil
  3. Thanks again gents! The fit is actually really good, plastic is alittle bit on the soft side. The only problematic area is the underside with the engine bay doors, but apart from that I had zero issues. Emil
  4. Thanks everybody, really appreciate all the nice comments! All the painting can be seen in the WiP thread. After paint I applied a gloss coat, decals and then a dark grey pin wash to highlight some surface detail and a more brownish wash around the engines. After that a matte coat followed by weathering with different shades of oils. And then I applied some more corrision control painting with the airbrush. Basically it is all about looking at reference and thinking about how to replicate the weathering with all the available techniques. Yes, I think the same way about the bombs, but after I was working on the kit for a really long time I just wanted to get it done. Emil
  5. Hello everybody, I want to present you my finished Trumpeter A-6E in the markings of VA-35. The kit is rather good, the only aftermarket used is: - Quickboost GRU-7A F-14A Seats, which were very kindly sent to me by Lothar and slightly modified to make them more accurate. - AMS main wheels - 3D printed nose wheels from Ben - Profimodeller pitot tube - AOA decals "The Intruders Sandbox" The build was documented in a very incomplete WiP-thread: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=67216 Cheers Emil
  6. Good day everyone, as I am currently working on a 1/32 Blk. 30 F-16, I decided to add a Sniper ATP. Picked up Eduards` nice Brassin pod, but now I noticed that I missing a pylon to mount the sensor on the fuselage . Is there a way to source that pylon: The shape is rather complex, so scratch building that one from plastic sheets will most likely exceed my skills. Emil
  7. Nice build. How was the kit, any major issues? Emil
  8. Wow, this is amazing, weathering in so many layers! Top notch Phantom! Emil
  9. Thanks again everybody! Well, I have good news for you, she is basically finished, just waiting for these front wheels https://www.shapeways.com/product/DL8PSVRZG/3201-1-32-a-6a-e-intruder-ea-6b-prowler-ft-whe?optionId=58674509 to wrap this one up. Emil
  10. Ok another update gents, the Intruder is all decaled and weathered. The AOA decals performed beatifully over a gloss coat, and I had zero silvering. Then I progressed with some dark grey panel line wash. I applied it using a pin wash technique, which gives me more controll over the amount of wash and which surface detail I want to highlight. Especially on these intensely riveted Trumpeter kits, just slapping on a wash could look to strong. This was followed by a matte coat and some oil weathering, according to reference. After the oils have cured I sprayed over some light grey touch ups. Right now I`m on track to finish her by the end of next week, currently working on all the bits and bobs. And she is already standing on her own legs, I had a feeling that this one might end up as a tail sitter, but appears I was wrong. Anyhow here are some pictures: Criticism and ideas are always welcome Emil
