WIP : Nitto PKA Gustav Pt. 2 – Painting & Finishing

As is now usual, I start with a base of black. Next is a white marble coat. The main color is Panzer Grey with red for the chevrons. These were sprayed slightly thinned so the marble coat shows through. The decals come from the Wave PKA Konrad kit as the original Nitto ones have yellowed …...

Upcoming : Hasegawa Crusher Joe Fighter 1

It’s about time I say! Back in the 1980s I had the 1/144 Takara release and of course, I wrecked it by painting with Tamiya markers. Since this is from Hasegawa’s Creative Works line, it should be quite nicely detailed. Plus it’s in a nice 1/72 scale to boot. Can’t wait for the actual finished …...

Painting begins with my usual black base using Tamiya XF-1 Flat Black. I’m trying a different marble coat this time with patches of various colors. I wanted to see these would have effect on the main colors. The primary color for the Y-wing is thinned Game Color Dead White. The nice thing about priming in …...

WIP : Fine Molds 1/72 Y-Wing Fighter Pt.1 – Construction

Time for a more stress-free build in the shape of this Star Wars kit from the folks at Fine Molds. As usual with anything that looks like an aircraft, the cockpit is built first. It’s on the simple side but once the pilot is in place, most the things here can’t be seen. With some …...
