    Try the site "Primeportal.net", you have lots of detail to follow in the walk arounds available for various models of the F-8. Basketball Basketball

    looks like you are doing a good job on this one as well. When ever possible, don't ask Marco to do the research, for there is the possibility that he will want the credit for the making of the model. pirat pirat

    No... No.. wait a minute , dont hurry Chris I give you an answer later..

    There is possibilities of green , yellow and grey but let me check ref , because most of the walkaroud aircraft paint with what they want , and most of them are not correct Fs colors..... cheers

    Paul, I know that sometimes he's a pain in the arse(were models are concerned), and when I bring a finished model to the club I feel as if I'm going to a work interview or an exam, BUT, AND IT'S A BIG BUT, he does that on a porpose, he always try to push us that little bit further to produce better models. Thanks to him we are one of the best model clubs in Europe. so from here I would like to thank you Marco for all the help that you give us. we love you Smile

    Marco,

    I was just pulling your leg. I know that when it comes to research, you are one of the best in town.

    As a judge - god help us, but then again, you point out things that other modellers, may have skipped.

    All in all Marco, keep it up, better a pain in the arse, then making sub-standard models.

    more progress


    air vents pannel was sanded down and redone (on both sides)

    now to the gun bays...


    the kit is full of injection moulding marks in visible areas!! Sad


    moulding marks removed


    ATTENTION!!! WET PAINT Smile


    i opted for interior green because i could not find chromate yellow, and i think modeling wise green is better for weathering




    first black wash

    that's all for now folks ... good day to you all Smile

    Yes Marco, i did not have any yellow and id did not find any at model shop. But i think that green is better for weathering ans since both colours were used i did not bother much.
