Die Mücke
« on: May 07, 2017, 05:02:10 PM »
I cannot wait with this one (photo 1), I've to build it quickly  :-love

After having washed the parts into water + soap, I've removed the flash on the parts, sanded a little bit on some places and then I've carefully examinated the easy way to build and paint the kit.
Having made some fitting trials, I've concluded that the best way to do is to make sub-assemblies.
On photo 3 you can see that some rivets were missing; I made new ones with 3D tissue paint.
The pilot (photos 7 to 9) is really pretty with a nice face  :-love

The fittings tests revealed some problems when positioning the pilot... I resolved the problem removing the gas controllers and creating new ones (photo 9)

OK, ready for primer...  :))

The parts were airbrushed khaki green Gunze H52); the pilot received a base coat of acrylic flesh paint (Tamiya XF-15)

Sure, there will be weathering but later in the process...

Some little progress...
First photo shows you the different mediums I've used today.
Other photos show you the result; I'me quite happy... But the last photo shows you that I've removed the acrylic paint on the pilot. I was not happy with the result so I prefer to restart the process...  ;)

Good results and a restart on the rider will be enjoyable for us to watch, too!
