    I have this figure. It also comes with 2 helmets, one he is holding and one with him wearing the helmet. With a little work I think I can make it into a seated pilot. Here is a link, https://www.ebay.com/itm/Model-Art-1-32-scale-3D-design-JASDF-F-35A-pilot-figure-in-resin-/183399090220 . Hope this helps.

    So I finally repainted it completely and went with the proven route of Gunze H73 & H75
    Once camouflage was replaced, the roundels could finally be painted.
    To do that I will use Custom masks from DN models. The roundels of SL721 are not standard as the top wings roundels are larger than usual and the Bottom wing roundels have the yellow border which normally occurs only on dark surfaces. So decals couldn't be used anyway.
     
    Painting roundels are time consuming and whichever method you use you will always need to remove and replace masks. The trick is to stay centred at all costs.
    For the colour of the roudels I used:
    white, marking yellow (MRP) red is a mix of XF7 and XF68 (3/4 + 1/4) and the blue is H322 (blue angel blue) + a drop of black
    All colours where checked against the tamiya decals and saved for later use.
     
    First step is to backpaint a white layer. This is mostly necessary for the yellow outline

     
    As you can see, masks have been marked with diagonals to ease up the aligning process later on.
    The internal masks have been replaced all together on the white, then the yellow outline and red centre masks have been removed and painted respectfully in their colour
     

    The next step was a bit tedious as the mask for the yellow was  a real pain to replace correctly.
    Once satisfied, I removed the large centre mask and painted the blue
     

     
    The AU J code masks where then placed. As with the roundels, I feel it's safer to stick all the masks together using strips of tape and then only remove the letter with a new sharp X-acto blade. That will ensure that the inner mask for the A will remain perfectly centred. Of course, there's no way to do that with the J in this case.

     

     
    Some more tape for overspray protection and the codes where painted in MRP sky.

     
    Next up are the SL721 and OO-XVI registration.  That's probably the smallest masks I ever painted. These letters are very tiny but in the end came out great
    Spraying black I also painted the walkway lines on top of the wings
     

     
    It took me the full week and week end to get to this point, but the end is near for this "quick" build
     
    I'm glad for the help of DN models and the custom work they are able to do, it saved me a lot of time and trouble.
