Zoukei Mura Kawasaki Ki-45 Kai Tei (Late) - FINISHED !!!

I just love the painting and weathering.  How are you replicating the chipping?  It looks perfect.  I try to do the chipping but usually end up overdoing it.  It's probably because I'm not using acrylic paints or too much chipping fluid.  Are you using acrylic paints or doing another chipping method?  Sorry if you already explained this.

Hi Jan, looks outstanding. How do you achieve such a convincing chipping effect? Chipping fluid? Cheers, Roger

Thanks guys for your kind words! really appreciate it!

I will try to answer Roger and Bryan's question regarding chipping.

I was working with  AMMO chipping fluids with MRP and Mr. Color paints but used to have same issues with it as Bryan describes above. Thin layer doesn't work and thick layer of the fluid turned into small drops which when scratched down with brush or toothpick left rounded scratches.

I will try hair spray method in future but these days I prefer to work as efficient as I can.

That's why I use maskol (Mr. Masking Sol Neo specifically). Issue is that you don't have enough control over the size of scratches,but on the other hand you can mask many parts and let dry the paint on it overnight and you don't have to work fast as with the chipping fluids. I think that the key is to apply realli tine amount of the maskol.

 

Here is simple instruction how I did scratches on engine nacelles.

MRP black surfacer

I've never thought of using a sponge piece with masking liquid, what a great idea!.  I'm going to give that a try next time I need to chip something.  

 

Big thanks for the tutorial!

small progress on Toryu

looks like I did something wrong when gluing fuselage hlaves together because instrument panel cover will need to sand a little

first thing that I really don't like on this kit is the fuselage upper part. I was trying to find out why guys at ZM decided to mold small windows as individual inserts instead of make the whole part out of clear plastic, especially with so many useless clear parts
