Last few things to complete. And as usual, a minor disaster… I sprayed the exhaust in Alclad Jet Exhaust and I found the color abit too dark. Given another go, I think I’d have gone for gun metal color. I attached the exhaust petals with cement and carelessly got the cement onto the Alclad. Sigh… …...

The end is in sight! After leaving the kit to dry for more than 24 hours, I sprayed on a semi gloss coat of Future mixed with some Tamiya flat base (to of course, flatten the finish). Note near the wingtip a somewhat big glob of black oilpaint which I missed out when I was …...

DAMN! Missed some painting. For lack of a better word, the chevrons on the engine housings need to be painted. The instructions called for a silver color but I chose black gray instead. There are also what looks like gun barrels on each side of the housing that needs to be painted. The shape of …...

Time to gloss up the kit to prepare for decals! For the top, I sprayed on Krylon Preserve it!. It however didn’t layer on very smoothly. It’s smooth to the touch, but it doesn’t LOOK smooth… strange… I decided to try using Future Floor Polish for the bottom. Now I’ve never had good experiences...

So after having a talk with some buddies, I decided to repaint the bottom color of the VF-22S. I originally used Gunship Gray. I replaced this with Vallejo Model Air Black Grey which is basically FS37031. Now it matches the line art more. I think I like this better! πŸ™‚ Build Log Part 1 | …...

Managed to get some work done tonight. I’m on a roll I guess. πŸ™‚ First I laid blutack around the demarcation lines. I originally laid some masking tape over the darker gray before the blutack to prevent overspray. Too much work though so for the rest I just went straight with blutack. To make sure …...

I’ve decided on the color scheme! Nope, not going with splinter camo this time… πŸ˜€ For the darker shade of gray, I’m using Life Color Light Gray (FS 36251). The camo was done freehand. This is actually my first time I’m airbrushing Life Color and I have to say that while it hand brushes very …...

Painting continues. First I masked off the bottom to prevent overspray. Then the lightest shade is sprayed. This is Model Master Neutral Gray. I think I’ll switch to white primer from now on. It’s so hard to differentiate the gray of the paint and the gray of the primer I have on the kit. πŸ˜› …...

Painting begins. First up I sprayed the bottom an overall Gunship Grey. The outside of the vertical tailfins were likewise painted in Gunship Grey. I decided not to preshade this time round. Notice the hole I drilled onto the bottom of the kit to prepare for the rod and base. Yep, it’s slightly off-center. And …...
