Hey guys!! Thanks for the positive feedback!! The basic build was fast, love Hasegawa for the engineering and fit of their kits. The chipping was super easy to do, i use rubber cement as the masking agent. I apply it with a piece of packing material, though you could use just about anything. I don't know how this would affect acrylic paint as everything i've applied this to has been Tamiya spray bomb. You can apply the glue as light or heavy as you desire, i like the control you have with the glue. It's hard to see where you apply it as it dries clear, so pay attention where you apply it!!! Airbrush your color as usual, let dry. The cement will remove by rubbing away with your finger. That's it, you're done....

Thanks for sharing. I wondered how you did the chipping to look so nice and random..it looks authentic, up close which you don't get with dry-brushing and/or silver pencils.

 

Happy to share!! Thinking about it, it is how real chipping occurs.

bravo, very nicely done.

Now...do I need one of these kits too.....hrmmmm

 

I've built two of these kits and thoroughly enjoyed both. There are lots of schemes available, some look scary to do, some very simple. If you want a simple kit that falls together, but lets you go wild on schemes, this is a good one.

Beautiful job and a very realistic finish, not a big fan of Japanese subjects but I built one of these many years ago (Frog I think) when I was very young and I do have a soft spot for the type.

 

Cheers
