Title: Rafale Marine n27 "Tigermeet 2014" (Revell 1/144th scale)
Post by: draken35 on August 10, 2017, 06:43:27 PM
The Rafale M #27 received a special deco for the Tigermeet 2014.
Syhart Decals released a decal sheet (1/48, 1/73 & 1/144 scale) for tha aircraft (ref 48/079, 72/079 or 144/079 depending of the scale).
Of course, I will use some goodies from Retrowings (cockpit detail set ref 44040).

The only problem with the Revell kit is the lack of the 1250L reservoirs. My friend Dominique Jadoul gived me the ones from the Trumpeter kit...

First stage of the work: 1250L reservoirs are assembled. Fitting with the revell kit is simply perfect. Then I have removed the flares that are replaced by the ones of Retrowings'set; same with the "croupion"...

First primer - Minor corrections are needed on the reservoirs (putty needed at the junction of half parts)

It's a long time since my last post for this topic... Time to resume the work.

I've worked on the tanks. The left and the right ones are "tigered"  :)) ; the central one being more "traditional".

After having airbrushed gloss varnish I've begun the placemnt of Syhart decals. Two to three more sittings will be needed to finish with the decals...

To be noted that the supports are toothpicks...

Panel liner applied today.

...Not an easy sitting; a really boring one in fact!

The problem was that the interpanel lines of the wings aren't deep enough to keep the panel liner on it. When you remove the excess of product, you systematically remove ALL the product (just on wings, no problem for the rest of the kit).
I tried six times... And finally the only solution was to use the first technique I've ever used for the panel lines: black aequous pencil; surplus being removed with an eraser.
Result is good enough...
