Eetu and Thomas, nice jobs on your builds and finish.

Ive purchased a Monogram 1/48 F100 to enter instead of the 1/72 F8. With my eyes and big fingers the 1/72 is just too small to be able to keep from breaking items or to see what I am actually doing even with a magnifying hood.

Hello lads,
Hope you don't mind if I join with Meng's F-102A Delta Dagger in 1/72 ?

This is a entry pic showing kit in "unspoiled" condition


(I hope it works, 'cause it's first time I'm using something different than Photobucket or Google+)

Cheers,
Radek

Yesterday first cuts were made. Fuselage is now shorter for about 6mm as it shuld be.




Airbrakes cutted out... all four of them...





...and fuselage joint sanded down.

Nice job Primoz, on the Hunter, I have those saw blades but cannot find the handle.

Progress on the Monogram F100. Lots of rivets and lines to remove. The leading Edge slat is meant to be posed open. I trimmed the slat attachments and attached it closed, but you can see that I did not do a very good job. There was some filling to try and make it fit.

Thanks Bob but is actually a Su-9 that I am dooing.

So a little progress was made yesterday. The tail shape has few flaws whitch will be easy to correct. The part where the tail meets the fuselage has wrong shape ending. It should be more smoth as in the picture.



Shape corrected:



In some spare time I shaped the brake appartments. Now they need some detailing.

Primož, my apologies for the mistake. The blue color thew me off by thinking of the RAF aerobatic team. I am enjoying your build progress and your modifications.

I am ready to paint the F100 using the SEA scheme for Vietnam. Does anyone have a mix formula that matches FS 36622 Light Gray? Ive been to IPMS Stockholm, but they do not give any mix formulas.

Well, this is the furthest I've gotten on a GB in a long time. It's all painted, needs some touch-up, decals and Fiddly bits. Won't get done by tomorrow night.

This was inbox plan for exhaust tube. Don't think so.


My plan was to include color marker cap and some old spare parts:




Next step was to shapeing the rear fuselage wall. Left is done now for the right part.


Shaping the end part of the exhaust tube was needed to achieve detailed look.







That is all for now.

Progress! Kit the kit decals, all 10 of them installed.

Copied and shrank some other decals to try and make it look a little more like a Crusader. That's them in the background.

Primož,
superb work! Those scratch details you are creating are incredible!


Small update on F-102A. I've finished cockpit, exhaust & AIM-4 rockets.
Quite happy with details, although white tips on rockets aren't state of the art stuff

Here are some pics:





All elements were primed with A.MIG-2024 One Shot primer grey.
Cockpit was sprayed with Gunze H317 and detailed with Vallejo Khaki (70988), Red, Yellow and Black.
Engine was painted with Vallejo metal colours Silver & Steel 77724,77712 with slight tint of Burnt Umber 71040.
For rockets I used Tamiya Flat White XF-2 & Gunze H13 Flat Red.
All was secured with Microscale's Micro Gloss varnish and later slightly weathered with Tamiya Paneliner Brown.

So that's all for short update. Next I'll try to put hull & wings together to get stuff ready for camo painting.

Cheers,
Radek

Primož, your added detail really makes the plastic on your Su-9 come alive. Nice job!

Radek, your F102 is looking good especially the engine. I purchased an F106 for this campaign on eBay, but it was damaged in route and went back to the vendor.

Radoslaw, I started the campaign with an 1/72 F8, but changed over to a 1/48 F100 which is ready for painting.
