  1. This model is cursed... After the usual decal process of clear gloss, micro set and sol, again clear gloss and than clear flat... here the result. I don't know what's happened... all decal's film is visible and extremely flat. Before spraying the clear flat here's how the decals looked... they were fine to me. Now I'm very disappointed at least... I think I'll throw it away from my balcony at 5th floor... damn!!! Never again Begemont decals for me.
  2. Hello, after a thin layer of Tamiya X-22 Clear Gloss, I've applied a dark wash all over the model. Now I have to put another couple of thin layers of Clear Gloss than it should be ready for decals. CIAO! Piero
  3. Hi Chuck, your canadian "Spillone" is amazing! You did a great job fixing the Italeri's kit. and the metal colors all around is almost perfect to me. CIAO! Piero
  4. Hi Marcel, I really like your Fulcrum!!! The camouflage is amazing and also the burned metal effect over the nozzles is great! My ask you what decals did you use for markings and stencils? CIAO! Piero
  5. Hello, my Fulcrum is back in full Czech's camouflage colors! This machine will be the Czech's 5918. Not even two Czech's Fulcrum had the same camouflage pattern... why???? This time I hope to be a little more lucky with the Tally Oh!'s decals... CIAO! Piero
  6. ... Unfortunately it went like this... My first experience with Techmod's decals has been "difficult": they are printed very well, good color saturation and a thin films... but hardly to use because are so fragile to move from the wet paper and to place on the model. Despite the model was so well glossed I had also a lot of silvering all over the stencils... a nightmare. This is the first time such a thing has happened to me... so I removed paints and decals until the bare plastic: I've used the AK Paint Stripper specific product for this task. Tomor
  7. Hello, the Fulcrum has been glossed with a couple of layers of Tamiya X-22 thinned with Tamiya Laquer Thinner "yellow cap". After that I've applied a wash using the Flory Model's "Dark Dirt" acrylic wash. Now it's ready for the decals. CIAO! Piero
  8. Well dirty Hornet here!!! Nice to see you got finished it... and now, who's next? CIAO! Piero
  9. Hello, I spent the weekend spraying colors all over the small panels, antennas, metallic plates, radome and the interior of the undercarriage bays. Now its time to prepare the surface for some good thin layers of clear gloss paint Tamiya X-22. CIAO! Piero
  10. Hello, the painting phase is going on. The under surface were sprayed with a very Light Grey. I used the Tamiya XF-80 reference. Then I sprayed the matt Black anti-glare panel in front of the windshield. Patches of Light Blu Grey, Tamiya XF-23, were sprayed over the Czech's insegna under the wings and around the front section of the jet air intakes. The real "challenge" was masking and painting the White band around the rear fuselage section... meters of Tamiya's masking tape following such different shapes and de
  11. Hello, due the quality of the Gunze colors and their drying speed if well thinned, yesterday I was able to finish the camouflage of the upper surfaces. After the Light Sand and the Light Green next was the H309 Dark Green. Then the H406 Chocolate Brown. The H65 Black Green was used to spray the patches covering the czech's insigna. Now its time to go with the Light Grey on the under surfaces....then the radome, antennas, metallic panels, black anti-glare panel and last but not least the large white band around the rear part of the fuselage.
  12. Thanks guys! Here the first two camouflage colors sprayed: these are Gunze H44 and H312 thinned with Tamiya's Thinner Yellow cap. Here the masking using Patafix's rolls and Tamiya's Yellow Tape. CIAO! Piero
  13. A little step before the camouflage... I sprayed some pure white inside the main panels to highlights these areas. An hint for the camouflage colors... CIAO! Piero
  14. Hello, the windshield has been glued to the fuselage: the fitting of this part is really good. Unfortunately I have no photo of this step... Then I've spent a good amount of time to clean all the plastic parts to prepare for the painting phase. The clear part of the windshield has been masked using Tamiya's yellow tape and some Maskol to seal the cockpit area. Now I'm ready to paint it!!! First layer is a coat of Tamiya X-18 Semi-Gloss Black: this has been sprayed in two thin layers with a pass of very fine grane sanding sponge between the painting layers and..
  15. Hi, early Polish MiG-29As were ex-Czech machines that retaines the original 4-tones camouflage for some years until they went to the overhaul maintenance where they were repainted in greys shades. The original 4-tones camouflage of the Fulcrums was not keept very well. The PAF's maintenance crews overpainted the Czech's roundels with blochs of Dark Green over the wings on on the vertical tails. Under the wings they applied some Light Blue Grey, used on the side of the jet air intakes too. And then applied the Polish markings. So the camouflage got a heavy f
