Lukgraph Lublin R XIII G (float version) - FINISHED

Recommended Posts

finally back at the bench

floats ppainted with white aluminium and dural aluminium from MRP

I have tried to depict dried sea water effect. Have masked with sponge Mr. maskol sol in some irregular patterns.

After it has completly dried, I have sprayed thin coats of highly diluted medium grey paint.

The effect is subtle and visible against the light

If I may, the two-color artificial horizon seems somewhat anachronistic for the era (not that much will be visible, or many will notice, though)

I was thinking the same Hubert. I don't have enough references for this plane, but I have seen Yahu panel for Lublin and it looks almost the same.

He gives the mix to obtain the correct color of Lublin Vallejo 70.990+ 70.942 2: 1.
This is how it looks on the model of a colleague.

 

Thanks Artur for the color recommendation. Unfortunately Im not using Vallejo stuff but will try to achieve similar mixture from Tamiya Park Green

An that finished Lublin is great work. I saw the photos of it on Lukgraph site

small progress with Lublin

I was playing with floats struts. It's small challene, typical for resin kits to get them aligned with correct geometry.

I have used stainless steel tubes instead of resin ones for 2 struts between both floats, easy and strong solution  :)

not so much time at the bench in past days, however I was able to finish basic paint job 

Cowling painted with the mixture of Mr. Paint light grey and White aluminium, shaded and lighted a little bit

It was tricky to get the right green mixture. I was trying to mix Tamiya X-28 and Hobby Colour H306 (thinned with Tamiya X-20) and my first attempt resulted in this (with some shading applied)  :hmmm:

However I was not happy with the bright green look. So I  sand it down applied white surfacer and used more greyish mixture of the colors mentioned above. This time I have thinned the paints with Mr. Color Levelling thinner to get better surface. Now Im satisfied with the final look  :)

Gorgeous work as normal!

It looks like a nice straightforward build.

 

Thanks Ernie!  :)

so far its quite straightforward, only all the struts alignment will keep you busy.
