Very interesting construction. All the transport airplanes I've built were just a hollow tube inside, this is so much more detailed!

True, sad that I decide to close rear ramp, it is so detailed, it even have actuators for ramp (in that scale!)

You have also model build project if I can remember good... on my side paint of small details and one correction. One blister on fuselage side is not need so I cut it and paint again.
Title: Re: Il-76, Zvezda 1/144
Post by: modellius on November 22, 2017, 11:50:50 PM
Nice progress mate ! Yes I did made this model and delivered to my friend, still waiting for the photos......
Title: Re: Il-76, Zvezda 1/144
Post by: No.1 on November 23, 2017, 06:11:54 PM
Thanks :)) Here is unusuall continue of this build- adding side decals. I know they have to be done last, when kit is painted but I have no other choice. Last time I am low of concentration so I can make mistake when make demarcation line for bottom grey paint. So I decide to apply decal and this decal will be guide to me. This mean great care during work, strong coat of protective varnish over it, very low tack protective tape and great care of paint mixture, to avoid leaks under tape and smudging of decals...

So if you do this kit, don't do like this, it is very personal approach  :-dal :-roll

Must say that I did not feel so much conformtable during remova, at least this build have to be reviewed in magazine, responsibility is big there
Title: Re: Il-76, Zvezda 1/144
Post by: modellius on November 27, 2017, 03:02:44 PM
looks superb, well done mate, nice but risky approach on painting the grey but you did an superb job !
Title: Re: Il-76, Zvezda 1/144
Post by: No.1 on November 27, 2017, 07:04:32 PM
Thank you :)) In this step is present painting of grey parts. To regret, I have no clue from photos what is the color of the leading edge, dark grey or some kind of dark metal...  :-dal
Title: Re: Il-76, Zvezda 1/144
Post by: No.1 on November 27, 2017, 07:06:36 PM
Leading edges of engine intake is polished metal on real plane and to reproduce it in 1/144 scale is need some tricks... I pour silver paint in jar, put part there, lift it, put on protective paper which soak any extra of paint and after minute let em aside, to dry... finaly placed ;)
Title: Re: Il-76, Zvezda 1/144
Post by: modellius on November 27, 2017, 07:11:30 PM
my conclusion looking the pictures that it would be most probably natural metal,not painted

Post by: modellius on November 27, 2017, 07:41:48 PM
99%, on the photos taken by my friend a difference between the grey areas ( which we know where they are ) and the questioned areas is more than visible and it looks to me pretty much like not painted metal.....look the intake rings on the engine which are painted, maybe the best photo to see the difference,and the corrosion stains looks like unpainted metal,I saw it in Szolnok on NMF Mig 19, these stains are most common on unpainted areas.....
