Well, I just spent an enjoyable hour going back through this build. What amazing skills - I kinda forgot there was a plastic model hidden underneath the fantastic paint job and perfect details.

 

Thanks Don, appreciate that!

 

cheers

Hi all,

getting closer on the pilot seats! The carabiners still need to be strapped in.

the chem light glow sticks are just Evergreen rod, with one end pinched flat with a flat nose pliers, then a little Tamiya clear green- the first aid kits are Live Resin items, with markings from Archer- dry transfers that I made into decals. The intercom panels need some markings; but man they are small! We’ll see I guess- the seat frames need some dust too-

I know it's accurate, but seeing that fine detail covered up with dust hurts a bit.

Hi Matt-

I get it. It’s not easy to do..but my M.O. has always been “look to see, and paint what you see”.. and looking at my references, these Pavehawks downrange are really filthy..the dust gets everywhere. I used the same dust on the figures boots, lower pants legs, and weapons too-

 

cheers

Pete, this keeps getting better and better. Your solutions to re-create the little details is astonishing. The little cyalume sticks, genius. The kit bags, the bottled water, I could go on all day. 
Both the wife and I said, if we didn’t know what we do, swear we were looking at a photo of the interior.

Pete, what's your formula and psi for spraying tamiya acrylics?

I mainly use Model Air, but after seeing your magic, I want to try tamiya.

Hi Tim,

To start, I thin it with Tamiya lacquer thinner (8700 with the yellow cap) about 50:50 and shoot it at 25 psi or lower..but will often have to adjust the ratio in the cup or tweak the air pressure a little..just depends what comes out of the airbrush at those initial settings-

Thanks Pete..a helo model like this has more in common with an armor model than a flying machine sometimes me thinks!
