F-14B UPGRADE 1/32 Tomcat

Recommended Posts

Awesome weathering! Are there any decals underneath btw?

Yes there are decals ! They're from Zotz, but a fail in setting my skulls ( and eventually i found them a bit too dark fir a cruise return ) made me want to paint more and more markings. After all we're dealing with large scale no ? I cut my own skulls and AA's for my tails and then bought a silhouette cutter. I'm now learning slowly all this machine can do for our hobby. I did the drop tanks bands and arrows with it, and i'll post shortly pics of the friction marks on wings. I used masks for these, i hipe you'll like them.

Hi Fanch,

This is an absolute pleasure to follow so thank you for taking the time and effort to share your techniques and progress.

I hope the article is a huge success as I'd like to see more modellers adopting your approach of ultra-realism.

It's such a treat to see someone painting an aircraft as it appeared rather than using some artistic style just because it's popular.

Bravo sir, I applaud you for daring to be different. Long may it continue

Looking forward to seeing more.

 

Cheers.

Hello

Thank you so much for so kind words. The efforts to build up an article are nothing compared to such rewarding comments. I am trully happy that you like my approach of painting and if I managed to share techniques. You pointed exactly what i try to keep as a guideline, thank you very much for that.

You charged my batteries up to 100% !

Best regards

Fanch

Thank you Vandy ! 

 

here's an update on the wing sweep marks. I've been using some custom mask that I designed with a pattern of concentric ( eng? ) circles layed over a drawing of the friction area. I sprayed some weathering band after band with  greenish and  yellowish grime greys ( based on H317 Gunze ). Some final touches with a thin brush and some AK Grime grey came next. I finished the process with a ery fine sanding, trying to follow the sweep move.

 

I also worked on slats, painting their shieldings with pale gold tints of Alclad.

This would have to be the best tomcat in 1/32scale, I haven't seen weathering done like that before, it's a perfect match for the real thing! Bravo
