Looks great, I love that base. On the fuselage, there are two lines of rivets parallel to each other on the spine, either side of where the front half joins the rear. It's hard to tell if they are parallel, or if it's a trick of perspective that makes them look not to be? Either way your work is really neat and impressive, far better than I can manage.

 

Cheers

Thank you Jim. I think that curve of the fuselage makes this optical ilusion cause lines are parallel - but thank for pointing this out.

 

Great project!

 

Wheel wells and 'pit looking exceptionally good.

 

Great idea for display, too!

Thank you John.

What color did you use for the cockpit?

 

Mike

Mike, I used Tamiya acrylics: X-14 Sky Blue mixed with X-28 Park Green and about 10% of XF-5 Flat Green. First two colors were added until I get the desired shade.

Sorry that I cannot give you the exact ratio but colors were added for a few drops.

fantastic work here, really interesting build, and this is going to be bitching! 

Thank you.

 

Ok. Work continues and today some photos related to engine.

First parts painted with alclads, some dry brush and white pigments:

After assembly and a little wash it looks like this:

It's a pity that it won't be visible.
Ok. Stay tuned as more photos will be posted tomorrow.

It was a good day.

Starting from some small rocks on the walk paths:

Then grass:

Then I started preparing a land around the monument:

And some test mold from material called progel. It is very easy in use and fully reusable:

Then I glued an engine with exhaust nozzle and bottom fin, it didn't fit too well so I had to use some putty:

Later I paint and wash elements used to join fuselage halves:

They look like this after gluing in place:

Dry fit of all elements:

Closer look shows that vertical stabilizer do not fit - will have to file it:

Me too, it always seems harder to go back and fix it up if you make a mess. That said, if you make as many mistakes as I do, you get a lot of practice at it, so maybe it's not so bad!!

 

Love the base too, keep it up.

 

Cheers

Jim
