Den fighters, (forever)

Recommended Posts

Looking good mate! I mostly build 1/48 kits as AMS-breakers, and if you pick the right kit (and keep the right attitude!), they can be a whole bunch o' fun.

Well the price is certainly more in keeping with my present budget, as all these kits are just laying around here already anyway. I calculate approximately 30-40 WWII fighters will be used up for this effort.

I've pretty much settled on one of these two schemes (probably the red nosed one, or similar), for the Yak 3, (image from Osprey Yak aces book).

Thanks Shawn. I had intended to completely paint this tonight, but all I had that was a decent match for the light gray topside color was a gloss paint that takes a while to dry. Looks like I won't wrap up paint on this one until tomorrow.

I couldn't stand it anymore, so I went ahead and painted the dark gray camo. Not the best job in the world admittedly, but I can certainly live with it.

Odd that you mention that Brian, I think about Russ every once in a while. I admired, and miss, his zeal.

I dunno. I like the paint job. Lets not forget the conditions under which the real planes were painted, often in the field, back 69 years ago.

Agreed. It's just that I'm so critical of myself. I suck down way too much coffeine, and that doesn't help at all when airbrushing freehand. Fortunately, since these fighters are destined for the den, and not the contest tables, I can get away with some sloppiness. Ultimately, I still have to be happy with the results, and I believe the Yak looks OK, so I'm a happy pup.

wow Kevin, you're cookin!

If you ever have some spare time and the patience, I'd love an Airbrush 101 from you.

 

Sure, we could do that. I've been wanting to build a painting jig for quite some time now. That way, I could paint with both hands, one steadying the other. I get my best results that way, when I'm able to use that method.

Now that the weekend has more than come and gone, I think I'm going to get back on the Yak; I'd really like to add the decals to that baby. Speaking of decals, I grabbed this sheet for a couple more Fw 190's I intend to add to the fray.
