I really like the last shot. The weathering on the underside is superbly done!

Thanks Greg and Brian  :D

Brian, for the weatering of the underside (as for the upper), I use the same technique as here :

http://www.master194.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=94481&start=75#p1190074



Oil paint directly apply on the acrylic paint (Gunze). Let dry until the oil became matt (15-20min) and wipe with a dry tissu to remove all excedent ;)

I'm working on 2 next project. 1 A321 from Asiana Airlines and a whif, but keep this one for me for the moment  :P

Hi guys,

Here is my last build (finished yesterday) since the Reaper. Also a whif based on Ace Combat video game universe.

The kit is from Heller in 1/72th scale and build out of the box (except for the shaft between turbine engine and main rotor transmission box) :













And with the Reaper in background:



Hope you like it  ;)

That's one amazing Alouette! I especially like the tarp on the back.

Well done!

Looks fine and correct to me.  Like minor weathering on sides.  Tarp is very "tarpy" as is should be. :smiley:

Thanks for your comment guys  :D

Thanks Greg. I don't have a good production rate but I'm still looking at the forum time to time (even if I'm not really active  :-[ )

Next builds are programmed. The most advanced one is an Airbus A321 modified to become an Airborne Ground Surveillance System (based on the principe of Boeing E-8 Mercury and P-8AGS proposal)  :smiley:
But before, I have to finished an Argentina A-4B (almost done) and a Pakistan Mirage IIIEA (paint job will be done tomorrow if everything going well). I will post pics when they will be over ;)

Hi guys,

The last one : an A-4P from Airfix started 5 1/2 years ago.










Next one will be a real world Mirage III or a what-if F-35A, I'm not decided yet  ;D (both are already started since few years  :P)

Congratulations for finishing this one! ;)
(As far as I am concerned, I have cured my "never-finished" problem by decreasing my perfection standards to raw, crude models, satisfying enough for a photograph and indulgent people, no matter what experts may think)

Valiant effort on the Airfix A-4B  :smiley: :smiley: A bit too glossy, slats should be fully down (unless strapped up), speed brakes open half millimeter or so  :smiley:
Poor Airfix A-4B, that tarp should be bigger to hide Airfix's misshapen nose and rubbish overall detail.

Thanks for your comments.

FAAMAN, you are right for all points. I give reasons for those mistakes:
- the glossy is because I didn't varnish yet in satin because of temperature outside which is a bit cold in the evening and even in the day. So I wait for a window to varnish it when temperature will be better.
- For the slat, I was aware of that. The build was made quickly in one day during an exhibition so I could pratice painting with a friend in the second day. So no cockpit and no paint in the intake (that's why there is a tarp). I choose to not take in account these detail for the slat.
- I didn't know for this misshape. I don't know many thing about the A-4, only pick-up the first box of jet with low price in the exhibition retailler  ;D
But maybe one day I'll do another skyhawk in 1/48th thanks to this quick build  ;)

TOPHE, that's exactly what I will apply for the next coming model :smiley:

The Airfix A-4B is awful, poor shapes and poor details  :o :o
I have an accurising thread on ATF ;   https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/airfixtributeforum/airfix-1-72-douglas-a4b-4p-skyhawk-a03029-t47356.html    , this details the many issues with the kit, so far the USN A-4B and the FAA A-4P  :smiley: :smiley:
The Fujimi A-4's in 72nd are best, so are the ESCI 72nd A-4E's  ;)
Can't help you with 1/48 scale A-4's, I don't build in this scale.

That's quite nice and I think you captured the look of those Argentine A-4s splendidly!
